If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/23/17

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

Tonight, USA Network’s hilarious comedy Playing House returns for its third season. In the first season, Maggie (Lennon Parham) discovered that her husband was cheating on her and faced the prospect of raising her newborn baby all on her own. However, childhood best friend Emma (Jessica St. Clair) gave up her lucrative international business career to move back to her Connecticut hometown to be there for Emma and help her raise her daughter. However, she also ran into her first love, local police officer Mark (Keegan-Michael Key), for the first time in 13 years, and this reawakened some old feelings. While Mark was now married, it was evident that the two still had feelings for one another, and at the end of last season, they finally admitted it to one another. Meanwhile, Maggie also moved on with her life, starting a new career as a nurse.

Playing House is a laugh-out-loud show. The two leads have such great chemistry and play off one another impeccably – you can tell they are friends in real life. Not only is the writing filled with lots of jokes and fun situations and pop-culture references, but there is also a lot of wacky physical comedy as well. This season, the women tackle a serious topic as they bring the real-life struggle of one of the actresses into the storyline of the show. However, they are still able to keep the show light and fun and make you laugh while also dealing with a very painful subject.

I attended the Playing House panel at this year’s ATX Television Festival, and these women were just as funny in person as they are in the show. You can tell how much they love making this show, and that comes out in their performances. At the festival, they screened the season premiere to non-stop laughs. There was so much laughing that I missed some of the lines, so I’m looking forward to catching it again tonight!

USA Network will be airing the two episodes of the season each Friday night, but tomorrow all 8 episodes of the season will be made available via On Demand for those who would prefer to binge it all at once. As we head into this third season, what is the state of Emma and Mark’s relationship? How will “Bird Bones” take the news that her husband is in love with someone else? Will Maggie find love again? And what general wackiness with these best friends get up to this season?!

On tonight’s first episode, “Cookie Jar,” Maggie hosts a game night to welcome Bruce’s new girlfriend into the fold; Emma discovers that this is what 40 looks like. Then, in “None of Your Business,” Emma tries to rescue Tina from a pyramid scheme; Maggie starts a nursing rotation with a cold doctor.

Catch up with Maggie, Emma, and their friends tonight on USA Network starting at 11/10c.

I’ll also be watching/recording GLOW, The Great British Baking Show, Ginormous Food, Dark Matter, and Wynonna Earp.
