If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/29/22

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!

Jenny’s Choice

There is SO MUCH ON tonight, but since I want to really try to limit how many I’ll pick, my top pick tonight is the series premiere of So Help Me Todd. Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin star as razor-sharp, meticulous attorney Margaret Wright and Todd, her talented but aimless son whom she hires as her law firm’s in-house investigator. As the black sheep of the Wright family, Todd is a laidback, quick-thinking, former private detective who fell on hard times after his flexible interpretation of the law got his license revoked. Margaret’s penchant for excellence and strict adherence to the law is at complete odds with Todd’s scrappy methods of finding his way through sticky situations. When Todd inadvertently teams with his mother on a case, she’s surprised to find herself duly impressed by – and proud of – his crafty ability to sleuth out information with his charm and his wide-ranging tech savvy. At last, Margaret sees a way to put her son on a “suitable” path to living an adult, financially solvent life she approves of, and she asks him to join her firm. Todd agrees, since it means getting his license back and once again doing the job he excels at and loves. Mother and son working together is a big first step toward mending their fragile, dysfunctional relationship, and they may even come away with a better understanding of each other. But whether Todd and Margaret will be able to accept each other for who they are is another case entirely. It also stars Inga Schlingmann, Madeline Wise, Rosa Arredondo, & Tristen J. Winger.

Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin are both fantastic and fun to watch, and the previews definitely make it seem like this is going to be both funny and heartwarming, so I’ve been so looking forward to seeing it since it was first announced. I’m excited to check it out tonight.

On tonight’s pilot episode, m eticulous attorney Margaret Wright hires her scruffy son as her law firm’s in-house investigator.

Catch the series premiere tonight on CBS at 9:01/8:01c.
