If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/25/19

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, NBC kicks off the new series The Enemy Within. CIA Director of Operations Erica Shepherd (Jennifer Carpenter, Dexter) was a brilliant operative who seemed to be at the top of her career when she was arrested for espionage and treason and sentenced to life in prison. Three years later, a coordinated terror attack occurs on U.S. soil, killing 14 government agents. It appears that the man responsible for the attack is the same person Erica had been working for, and he may have a mole in FBI helping him out. The FBI director thinks that to catch a spy they can use a spy and wants to enlist Shepherd, who was one of the government’s best code-breakers before she turned on them. However, FBI Agent Will Keaton (Morris Chestnut, Goliath, Rosewood) is very much against this plan since it was Shepherd’s actions that led to the death of his fiancee. Now the two are forced to work together to stop the terrorists before they can strike again.

The cast also includes Raza Jaffrey (Homeland, Lost in Space), Kelli Garner (The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe, Pan Am), Cassandra Freeman (Luke Cage), and Noah Mills (The Brave).

From the pilot, it seems like this show will be The Blacklist (con recruited to help the FBI) meets 24/Homeland (terrorism and moles). It doesn’t appear that the series will take on a case-of-the-week but rather be more character-based and explore a longer story arc, with twists and turns, slowly revealing details of why and how Shepherd was turned, as the FBI works to stop the terrorists and uncover the mole within their department.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” former CIA Agent Erica Shepherd, one of the most notorious traitors in recent American history, is brought out of a federal Supermax prison by FBI agent Will Keaton to help track down the criminal who is behind a coordinated attack on three cities.

See how Keaton gets Shepherd out of prison tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Good Doctor, The Passage, and The Other Two.
