If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/18/22

Hey hey! Welcome back to the If We Controlled Your Remote… posts! I know it’s been a minute. The last couple of seasons have been crazy weird, but I have high hopes that this season is going to be back to normal. To keep that hope alive, I thought bringing the Remote posts back today to celebrate the start of the new season. Kyle & Megan will be back to join me later this week, so strap in, because here we go!

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!

I have been waiting on pins and needles for the SEAL Team season premiere since last season’s finale, and I know I’m not alone. The finale was the most stressful season ender we’ve seen the entire series. It started off great. Jason and Mandy got things back on track, and he even made up with his daughter over her living with her boyfriend. Clay finally got to hold his baby, and he & Stella even got to take Brian home – and with Stella’s help, Clay & Sonny, who had been on the outs, finally made up. Davis learned that the paper she’d written that could have tanked her career actually ended up being a good thing. The only bad thing was Ray learned that the homeless vet he and his family had been helping had died of an overdose, and bad news for fans, Clay told Jason that he was stepping back from Bravo for a while, transferring to the Green Team so he could spend more time with Stella and his son.

The team was then sent back to Mali, and while riding in two vehicles, they were ambushed – and that’s putting it mildly. Jason was shot in the shoulder, and Clay got shrapnel to his eye. QRF was too far away to be any help, and Bravo was getting their butts kicked, having to hide behind the vehicles, and that was most definitely not working.

The kicker? The camera kept panning back and forth between the chaotic battle with Bravo and the baby shower back at home for Stella. The difference between the two scenes was insane. Given that the series hadn’t been picked up at that point, it would have made a horrid series finale! Luckily, it WAS picked up, and tonight we finally get a resolution to the questions surrounding Bravo. Will they all survive? Will all of the explosions and gunfire do more harm to Jason, who is already having the memory issues and everything from his years of combat? I can’t wait to find out!

Don’t miss the season premiere, “Low Impact,” streaming now on Paramount+!

Probably my favorite (or at least in the top 5) show returns tonight, and I’m so excited because we get a double episode premiere. Like so many shows, SEAL Team had to cut last season short due to the pandemic, and they left a whole whopping lot of story lines open. Clay had signed up for STA-21. Ray was waiting to hear whether or not he got the warrant officer position/rank. Both Jason and Cerberus were having to face the possibility of retirement. Jason and Mandy slept together. Mandy’s dealing with her own possible career change after having lost another asset. And hanging over Bravo’s heads is the Marsden letter, which could impact them greatly if it was one of Bravo who sent it. Not to mention they were in the middle of hunting down the Al-Hazred terrorist, the son of the man Jason killed 13 years ago, before he became Bravo 1.

I haven’t seen the double episode premiere, but I have read that it’s exciting stuff, as in edge-of-your-seat exciting. So I can’t wait, but I’m also terrified. I haven’t heard about anyone ON THE TEAM leaving the show. But here’s a bit from TVLine.com that is really interesting.

Executive producer Spencer Hudnut | So yeah, like most of our characters, even Cerberus is at a crossroads this season.

TVLINE | Do you have any idea what that looks like in the real world? Like, does the dog get rotated out and placed in a good home…?

SH | That is my understanding, and we’re dealing with it with Dita, who plays Cerberus, because Dita doesn’t know that this isn’t real combat. So to her, she’s been through three seasons and 60-plus missions. But yeah, finding a purposeful life for Cerberus is much like finding a purposeful life for any of our SEALs who move on from operating.

For those who don’t know, the guy who plays Brock, Justin Melnick, is an actual K9 police officer and is Dita’s real-life handler. Fascinating stuff, right?

On tonight’s first episode, “God of War,” Bravo Team enters enemy territory in the snowy Spin Ghar Mountain Range to capture Al-Hazred, the leader of a terrorist group and son of the terrorist leader that Jason took down early in his career and made him Bravo One. When they are attacked, Jason and Cerberus, Bravo’s canine member, are separated from the team. (Episode was directed by David Boreanez.)

Then on the second episode, “Forever War,” Bravo Team reunites with Jason and Cerberus, then go underground to search booby-trapped tunnels for terrorist leader Al-Hazred.

Don’t miss the exciting 2-hour premiere tonight on CBS starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Goldbergs, American Housewife, The Conners, Coroner, & Guy’s Grocery Games.

Last week on SEAL Team, it was clear Jason was well on the mend after his surgery. Not only was he walking and running without a hitch in his stride, but he was also hitting on and then kissing Natalie. I kinda like them together, but I’m not yet sure if that’s good or bad for Jason. And while the team was overseas protecting aid convoys in an Ebola hot zone and then finding out later that they were really there to go after a new strain of the Ebola virus that had been stolen (they were NOT happy about that delay in their mission knowledge, btw…), Davis was stateside and getting into trouble. She met up with her sister, but she really seemed to have a chip on her shoulder, so the visit didn’t go very well. That sent her to a bar, where she sat and drank…and drank…and drank…by herself. And THAT caught the eye of a couple of jackasses who tried to hit on her and wouldn’t listen when she said no. They put their hands on her, so she was on high alert already, and when someone else came up behind her and put his hand on her shoulder, she reacted…well…frankly like I think she should have. She turned around and threw a punch, assuming it was another guy who was with the first two. Unfortunately for her, it was a police office, so she was arrested. Now, I doubt she’d go to jail for it after the circumstances came out about why she threw the punch, but because she’s now an officer in the military, the military may have something to say about that…and that leads us into tonight’s episode. When I first saw the pictures and episode title, I figured maybe her relationship with Sonny had come to light, but now I think it has to do with the tussle at the bar last week. Guess we’ll see!

On tonight’s episode, “Unbecoming an Officer,” Jason leads Bravo Team on his first mission back following surgery, and Ensign Davis faces disciplinary action. The episode was directed by series star and real-life veteran Tyler Grey (Trent).

See how it goes with Jason back in the field and why Davis is facing trouble tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Goldbergs, Schooled, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Making It, Single Parents, The Great Food Truck Race, S.W.A.T., & Stumptown.

Tonight, Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race returns for an all-new but abbreviated holiday installment. This time around there’s just five food truck teams that will hit the road to see who has the best combination of culinary skills and salesmanship to win the $50,000 grand prize. And for this holiday race, the teams are headed to my neck of the woods, New England.

The five teams competing include “Big Stuff,” comprised of two professional private chefs who work on yachts and their marketing friend; “Creole Queens.” a married couple from New Orleans along with their friend; “Lia’s Lupima,” an executive chef who started a catering company with his mother, joined by a friend; “Magical Mystery Heroes,” a chef along with his cousin and his cousin’s wife; and “Slap Shot,” a Northern Minnesota culinary student, her sister, and their mother.

Even though it will just be a short, 4-episode season, it should be a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to this winter-themed installment of the series.

On tonight’s premiere, “Holiday Hustle: Blizzard Brawl,” five aspiring food truck teams kick off the season in snowy Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. Tyler Florence challenges the contestants with naughty and nice holiday ingredients, and they compete for sales while battling the elements in a winter wonderland.

Don’t miss the start of the winter fun tonight on Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Irishman, Survivor, and Almost Family.

I gotta say…I was a bit miffed at Chicago Med and how little Natalie was punished over her actions with the little boy a couple of episodes ago, when she locked herself in the exam room with him and gave him antibiotics over his parents’ adamant, visceral refusal. I mean, I didn’t agree with the parents at all, but still… As a parent myself, I’d have knocked the doctor out if she’d done that without my consent. Did it help that she was right? Sure, maybe a little bit. But what if she’d been wrong? I get how the hospital had to cover its behind by getting the paperwork pushed through to show they had the right to treat the boy, but even after she got arrested, she was only let out and got away with it because she’d been right. I’m hoping that the terrible character we’re dealing with now goes away soon, that maybe it’s still the TBI. I’d hoped that when she kicked Phillip to the curb, we’d get the Natalie we used to know and love back, not this person who is suffering from horribly, terribly bad judgment. I mean, COME ON. To get together with him in the first place, when his wife died not long before that?? Argh. But whatever. I can move on. 😉

Speaking of moving on… I like that Sharon decided to meet up with her ex-husband and at least give it a chance that she can find some peace, even if it never goes any further than that. And oh boy… Noah brought home the wannabe gang member girl. Can’t wait to see how that story goes!

On tonight’s episode, “Who Knows What Tomorrow Brings,” Dr. Charles and Dr. Halstead sink their teeth into a bloodthirsty case. Dr. Marcel and Maggie throw a traditional crawfish boil for the staff. A new relationship blossoms while another is left on rocky ground.

Find out which relationships are developing tonight on NBC at 8/7c.
