If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/27/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice

greatindoors1027smallI love fish-out-of-water comedies, and I think I’m going to love CBS’s latest, The Great Indoors. Joel McHale (Community & The Soup) stars as Jack, a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine. He is used to traveling the world, living an “outdoorsy” life while writing up his adventures for the magazine. But when his boss, Roland (Stephen Fry!), announces that the magazine is moving to web-only, Jack has to become an office bee when Roland assigns him to supervise their online team of “journalists.” These millennials are all the opposite of Jack – used to doing everything indoors and online, where their idea of observing nature is watching a YouTube video of a bear family enjoying a swimming pool in someone’s backyard.

It should be a lot of fun watching them all try to get the other(s) to open their minds, get out of their comfort zones, and show that just because something is different, it doesn’t mean it’s bad. The show also stars Susannah Fielding, Chris Williams, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Christine Ko, & Shaun Brown.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Joel McHale stars as Jack, a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine who must adapt to the times when he becomes the new desk-bound boss to a group of millennials in the digital department of the publication. Amy Hill, Jason Boegh, Will Herndon, & Deborah Baker, Jr. guest star.

Meet Jack and the rest of the team tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Rosewood, The Good Place, Chicago Med, Chopped, The Almost Impossible Game Show, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & Pure Genius.
