If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/20/15

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!

Jenny’s Choice #1

cristela320smallI’m so scared because TV Line has Cristela on their “bubble show” list. I’ve loved this comedy since episode one. Cristela is great, the supporting cast is fantastic, and I love the balance between her work and her home life. Last week’s episode was a good example of that. It was Henry’s confirmation at church, and he picked Cristela to be his sponsor. But when it came time for the confirmation, Cristela was supposed to be working, helping her boss, Mr. Culpepper, at a press conference to show that he wasn’t the racist he seemed to be on a video he’d accidentally been captured on when his daughter, Maddie, was vlogging at work. She almost missed the confirmation but realized at the last minute that family was more important. She ran all the way to the church and made it just in time. At work the next day, Mr. Culpepper said he was disappointed, but really, I think we can all tell he admires her, even though they aren’t necessarily the choices he would make. That’s part of what I love about the show.

On tonight’s episode, “Fifteen-Something,” when Juanita Canales invites the family to her granddaughter’s quinceañera, Natalia wants to show off and use different aspects of the family to impress everybody. This culminates in her pushing Cristela to bring Josh from work as her date, and Cristela has the first dance she never had when she turned fifteen.

To see if Cristela and Josh have the moment all the shippers are hoping for, tune in to ABC at 8:31/7:31c.

glee320smallTonight, after six seasons, Glee finally comes to an end—arguably while it’s back on a high note—with a special 2-hour series finale. Last week it was Sectionals, and New Directions/Warblers managed to beat Vocal Adrenaline and the school of falconry (yes, seriously) to take home the trophy. Sue claimed that she purposefully arranged for her team to throw the competition, but after Will refused to thank her, she vowed once again to take him down. Meanwhile, Jessie St. James returned to try to convince Rachel to join his Broadway musical, while at the same time Kurt and Sam to get her to return to NYDA. Ultimately Rachel decided that she has more to learn and that finishing college is better for her in the long run. The next stop is Nationals—can New Directions/Warblers win it all and ensure the future of the glee club?! (I’m guessing the answer is yes!)

This final season of Glee has been so enjoyable. They have made some excellent music choices, and the overall plot has actually been consistent and coherent throughout the season. This season, the series has also taken a lot of fun jabs at itself, poking fun of and admitting to its weaknesses. And Sue Sylvester has reached total supervillain status with her insane and elaborate (and incredibly illegal) plots against Will and the club. If you had asked me a year or two ago, I would have said I’d be happy for the show to go, but after this fun season, I’m actually sad that tonight is the last time we’ll be spending time at McKinley High!

On tonight’s finale, “2009/Dreams Come True,” the curtain comes down as the series ends its six-season run with a look at how the original teen singers found their way to the glee club and then flashes forward five years to see where life has taken them.

See how it all began and how it ends tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Cristela, Grimm, 12 Monkeys, Helix, and Childrens Hospital.

Jenny’s Choice #2

cristela320smallGrimm is back tonight at a new, earlier time, but given the story lines lately, I hope that doesn’t mean they’ll be any less exciting! It’s been five (yes, FIVE!) weeks since the last new episode, and they left it at a huge cliffhanger! The audience has known for a while now that Juliette can change…but last episode ended with her showing Nick that she’s become a hexenbiest. Nick was, not surprisingly, shocked. I’m assuming there’ll be a bit of a time jump going into this episode, so hopefully he’s dealing with the knowledge and hasn’t shut her out or locked her up, given that it isn’t HER fault! Woo now knows about the Wesen, which is great. He’s slowly getting used to the idea and has already been a help to Nick and Hank, which I love.

On tonight’s episode, “Bad Luck,” Nick and Hank investigate a murder victim with his foot cut off and stumble onto a disturbing Wesen take on the “lucky rabbit’s foot.” In an effort to help, Monroe and Rosalee go undercover. Meanwhile, the fallout from Adalind and Juliette’s showdown still has Nick reeling and sends him on a path that leads to Henrietta (guest star Garcelle Beauvais). Alexis Denisof also guest stars.

See what happens when Monroe and Rosalee go undercover tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing.
