If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/25/15

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

youngandhungry325smallOne of my favorite new comedies last year was ABC Family’s Young & Hungry. Emily Osment plays Gabi, a young chef who applies to be the personal chef to Josh Kaminski, a dot com whiz and self-made millionaire, played by Jonathan Sadowski. During season one, we watched as Gabi quickly developed feelings for Josh, who was engaged to a rather vapid woman. At the end of the season, Josh realized he had feelings for Gabi as well *just in time* to cancel his wedding, but when he went to her apartment to confess those feelings, he saw through the window as Gabi and her ex-boyfriend, Cooper, reunited. Fade to black, that’s how the season ended. It was frustrating as all get-out for us Josh and Gabi shippers! LOL

This season picks up pretty much where season one ended. Jesse McCartney is back as Cooper for several episodes, so it’ll be interesting to see where and how far they take things with Gabi and Cooper. Also returning this season are Aimee Carrero as Gabi’s roommate and best friend Sofia, Kym Whitley as housekeeper Yolanda, and Rex Lee as personal assistant Elliot. I loved Yolanda and Rex, who were both hysterical last season, so I’m glad they’re back!

On tonight’s episode, “Young & Too Late,” Gabi is freaking out about why Josh called the wedding off and searches for a sign if she should be with him or Cooper (recurring guest star Jesse McCartney), but it’s Sofia who makes a surprising discovery. Meanwhile, Elliot has a big date with the wedding florist (guest star Miguel Pinzon) and ends up bringing a forlorn Josh along.

To see how uncomfortable things can get between Gabi & Josh, tune in to ABC Family at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Mysteries of Laura, The Goldbergs, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Mystery Diners, black-ish, Best New Restaurant, Chicago PD, CSI: Cyber (one of my favorite episodes of the season so far!), Hot in Cleveland, & The Soul Man.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

bigtime325smallTonight, Comedy Central adds the new series Big Time in Hollywood, FL to its Wednesday night lineup. Aspiring filmmakers/brothers Ben (Lenny Jacobson) and Jack Dolfe (Alex Anfanger) still live with their parents, hoping to make it big from the YouTube videos they spend all of their time making. However, Diana (Kathy Baker) and Alan (Stephen Tobolowsky) want their sons out of the house and finding real jobs and give their children two weeks’ notice. The guys, along with their friend Del (Jon Bass), decide to employ their theatrical skills to set up an elaborate ruse to con their parents out of their life savings. However, things take a very unexpected turn.

Comedy Central has made tonight’s premiere available to watch early on their website, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There are some very funny, laugh-out-loud moments, like the completely over-the-top reaction the guys have to the news that they are going to be kicked out of the house. I really like the idea of the serialized nature of the story—they set up an interesting twist in tonight’s premiere, and I look forward to seeing how the aftermath plays out. This series should pair perfectly with Workaholics, as it has a similar sense of humor, which can be a bit sophomoric at times. However, the overall tone is quite different.

On tonight’s premiere, “Severance,” two brothers and wannabe filmmakers get kicked out of their parents’ house, so they start plotting an elaborate scheme to raise money for their next project.

See how the brothers react to getting kicked out of the house tonight on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, Arrow, Supernatural, Young & Hungry, Freak Out, The Americans, Broadchurch, and Workaholics.
