If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/15/15

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

theroyalssmallIt’s probably been at least a decade since the last time I watched anything on E!, but tonight they kick off their first scripted series, The Royals, and I’m looking forward to checking it out. The series follows the lives of a fictional royal family in modern-day London. Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley, Gossip Girl) loves her title and all the power that comes with hit, but her husband Simon (Vincent Regan, A.D.), who’s coping with the loss of his eldest son, is contemplating abolishing the monarchy before it ruins his family—including wild 21-year-old daughter Eleanor (Alexandra Park, Home and Away) and her slightly-older twin brother Liam (Wiliam Moseley, The Chronicles of Narnia). Liam, who is now heir to the throne, is a bit of a playboy but falls for commoner Ophelia (Merritt Patterson, Ravenswood), the American daughter of the King’s head of security. Meanwhile, Cyrus (Jake Maskall, EastEnders) feels like he should be the one sitting on the throne.

The series is filmed on location in London, and the sets and scenery look breathtaking! The show seems like it’s going to be a fun, soapy drama filled with stories of love, hate, lust, revenge, scandals, and power struggles, all set in a world of opulence and majesty. I’m looking forward to seeing all the craziness and drama that goes on with this royal family behind the palace gates!

On tonight’s premiere, “Stand and Unfold Yourself,” Prince Liam and Princess Eleanor struggle with their new roles following the abrupt death of their older brother, while Queen Helena works to maintain the family’s image, and King Simon questions the monarchy’s future.

To see behind the public face of this new royal family, tune in to E! at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, The Walking Dead, Looking, Shameless, and Episodes.
