If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/16/17

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

Freeform’s latest original series, Beyond, centers around a young man named Holden, who awakes from a 12-year coma to discover that he has some unusual abilities and finds himself at the center of a dangerous conspiracy. I’ve been watching week to week, but for those who want to binge all 8 episodes, the network made the entire season available on On Demand shortly after the premiere. When we last left off, Holden discovered that his parents had actually been separated and were only pretending to be together for his sake, and his younger brother headed back to college. Willa convinced Holden to re-enter the Realm and was helping to bring back his memories of this magical place where he “lived” with her during the years he was in a coma. Meanwhile, the mysterious man in the yellow jacket abducted Kevin for questioning and seemingly executed him afterwards. At the end of last week’s episode, Kevin’s brother – who was the one who originally put Holden in a coma – grabbed Holden at gunpoint, demanding to know where his brother was.

Who is this man in the yellow jacket who’s living a double life, what’s his agenda, and what did he want with Kevin? (I assume we’ll find out tonight, based on the episode title!) Is Kevin dead, and does his brother know about the Realm? Was putting Holden into a coma truly an accident, or was there more to it? Is Willa hiding something about why she and her grandfather need Holden to go back in? I’m enjoying the mystery so far, and the series has already been renewed for a second season, so there will be even more time for all of these questions to be properly answered.

On tonight’s episode, “The Man in the Yellow Jacket,” Holden seeks intel about the man who’s after him by teaming up with a former adversary. Meanwhile, the Matthews feel uncomfortable with Jeff’s presence in their lives; Luke struggles to find his place in the family; Willa helps another comatose patient; and Holden asks a girl out for the first time.

See if they can find the man in the yellow jacket tonight on Freeform at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Fan, Man With a Plan, The Celebrity Apprentice, Timeless, Gotham, and Lucifer.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/15/17

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

Things are FINALLY coming to a head in the mole investigation on NCIS: LA. But first… On last week’s “Kulinda,” Sam was sent undercover at a private security firm after it was suspected that they had links to a gang and, even worse, a terrorist group. Thankfully, the guys all turned out to be good guys, and it was one of the younger kids in the neighborhood – who did have ties to the gang but had gotten out – and he was forced into doing what the bad guys wanted. And Sam was able to talk to head (boss) of the security firm out of killing the really bad guy when he tracked him down. AND we learned that Callen and Anna were taking their relationship very slow because she’d asked for some time to get accustomed to her job and being here full-time in the US. But she apparently decided she’d had enough of slow, because she brought him over a carb-filled breakfast and they definitely started moving in the right direction! And poor Kensi is so ready to get back to work, but Nate, who was back at the end of last week’s episode, said he would be the one to sign off on her getting back to work, and in his opinion, she wasn’t ready. Gah. Really frustrating! I mean, yeah, I think she’s covering up how she’s really feeling (not physically, but emotionally and mentally), and she needs to work through that, but…damn. At least let her back in the office to help from Ops or something!

Now we come to this week… The mole investigation has been going on way too long in my opinion, but tonight starts a three-episode arc to end that story line finally. It will get worse before it gets better, according to actors and the powers-that-be from the show, and when we do finally learn who the mole is (or who the MOLES ARE?), we’ll be shocked and won’t have seen it coming. I’m scared, people. Really scared! Eek!

On tonight’s episode, “Hot Water,” the mole has once again compromised the NCIS team as planted evidence results in the arrests of Callen, Sam, Granger, and Deeks, on the day Under Secretary Duggan (Jackson Hurst) returns for Hetty’s resignation.

Find out what gets members of the team arrested tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Librarians, To Tell the Truth, & Worst Cooks in America.

Recap/Review – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – 1/13/17

This week’s episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (titled: “Will Scarsdale Like Josh’s Shayna Punim?”) brought the new couple back to Rebecca’s home for a Bar Mitzvah, where things don’t turn out as she expected.

Recap:

At the office, Nathaniel cracks down on the overabundance of candy. Darryl fights back, and soon enough everyone in the office backs him up. Nathaniel is not impressed. When his father calls and doesn’t give him a big client, he has a breakdown, eats an extraordinary amount of candy, and falls flat on his face on his desk treadmill. Darryl gives him a pep talk, and it appears that Nathaniel has some humanity in that beautiful stubborn head of his.

Josh and Rebecca seem to be doing well as a couple. And there’s a whole song telling us about it. “We’ll Never Have Problems Again” is a fun disco song that Josh and Rebecca sing as a duet.

They appear to be in their honeymoon phase and are posting pictures on social media religiously. Rebecca meets up with Valencia to talk about her relationship with Josh, but Valencia already knows since she is friends with Rebecca on her social media accounts. Valencia offers some advice to Rebecca, but it’s ignored. As is the advice from Father Brah when Josh speaks with him about Rebecca.

When Rebecca and Josh arrive at her mother’s house in Scarsdale, Rebecca is brought back to how she felt before coming to West Covina. Depressed and annoyed. And the situation becomes worse for Rebecca when Josh and Naomi (Rebecca’s mom) bond. This appears to be strike one, but then when Josh has fun at the bar mitzvah, Rebecca confronts him about it. He tells her that she’s the only one there who isn’t having a good time. The group breaks into the song, “Remember That We Suffered,” adding to Rebecca’s unease being home and surrounded by her family. This point is reiterated when the Rabbi speaks to Rebecca, who is sitting alone and drinking. And Rebecca finally listens to the advice that maybe it’s her who needs fixing instead of hiding behind relationships.

Back in West Covina, Rebecca goes to see Dr. Akopian. Rebecca tells the doctor that she’s still unhappy even after she and Josh got together for good. Dr. Akopian is a bit giddy that Rebecca has finally made a breakthrough. And in typical CEG fashion, Dr. Akopian is sorely disappointed when Josh interrupts the session and asks Rebecca to marry him.
 
 
Review:

This week’s episode was entertaining but also had a somber undertone. It was nice to see Rebecca getting a glimpse into her real issues, and I feel like this will continue to be a theme until her real issues are addressed. And I have a feeling that the recent engagement will bring those issues to light quicker than Rebecca expected.

Naomi’s “Period Sex” break was hilarious. I love when CEG does call-backs to their songs throughout the season.
 
 
I wanted to note how excited I was this week to hear the renewal news for CEG. Season three of CEG will definitely be happening!!

Join me next week for the recap/review of the next new episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, which airs Friday, Jan. 20, on The CW at 9/8c.
