If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/10/20

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 #1

My first pick tonight is the series premiere of Lincoln Rhymes: Hunt for the Bone Collector on NBC. Aside from a clunky title (why not just leave it at Lincoln Rhymes?? But whatever…), this is another show that I’m totally, 100% on board with from the first mention of it. For one, it’s a cop show, and you know I love those. Two, it stars Russell Hornsby, whom I loved on Grimm. And three, it’s based on a great book series that I loved, by Jeffery Deaver.

Hornsby stars as titular character Lincoln Rhymes, a former NYPD detective who was injured in the line of duty – paralyzed and unable to return to work. When the killer he was chasing at the time, the Bone Collector, seems to have returned three years later, something finally, FINALLY, piques his interest enough that he decides to take the police up on their offer to let him consult…because his mind is as sharp as it ever was. Also starring is Arielle Kebbel (Midnight, Texas) as NYPD Officer Amelia Sachs, who was smart enough on the scene of a murder to catch some important evidence, and it’s through her that Lincoln will be able to view each scene and help track evidence. The show also stars Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos, Mad Dogs, Life on Mars, Law & Order, Detroit 187), Brooke Lyons (Sullivan & Son, Life Sentence), Ramses Jimenez (Vida), Roslyn Ruff (Bluegrass/Blood Red), Tate Ellington (The Brave, Quantico), Brian F. O’Byrne (Aquarius, Saints & Strangers), & Courtney Grosbeck.

I’ve seen tonight’s pilot, and I was very, very happy with it. Russell Hornsby is great, as is (new to me) Arielle Kebbel. The cast has a fun chemistry, and the story lines are exciting. If this is at all your type of show, or heck, even if it usually isn’t, give it a shot. You might be surprised!

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on NBC at 8/7c.
