If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/12/16

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Megan’s Choice

shannarachronicles2016smallIt may seem at times that all I watch is procedurals or cooking shows, but that’s not true. I am also a sucker for a good fantasy show, and The Shannara Chronicles has definitely caught my interest. It has adventure, magic, and unlikely heroes, all of which make for a fantastic series, not to mention it’s based off a bestselling book series written by the talented Terry Brooks.

In case you missed last week’s 2-hour premiere, here’s a brief rundown so you can easily catch up this week. The show takes place in a magical land known as the Four Lands, eons after the fall of humans. There is a special Elvish tree, Ellcrys, which protects the land from the demon world, but unfortunately it is dying. This sets the trio of Amberle, Wil Ohmsford, and Allanon on a quest to find a new, safe home for the tree before the boundary between the worlds is completely dissolved, bringing an unstoppable demon army into the Four Lands.

If you are a fan of fantasy and adventure, then you simply must tune into watch this show!

On last week’s episode, we got to know the characters and watched as the tree was found to be sick and the trio was formed. There were demons and love stories along with great fight scenes. If it wasn’t exciting enough for you, then you need to re-evaluate your idea of excitement.

On tonight’s episode, “Fury,” Wil and Amberle are kidnapped by Eretria and Cephalo while returning to the palace. But the Rovers are the least of their worries. Wil must learn how to use the Elfstones before a bloodthirsty Fury kills them all.

To see if this unlikely group can defeat the Fury, tune in to MTV at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Teen Wolf, Chopped, and New Girl.
