If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/27/15

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

cristela327smallMy favorite new comedy this season has been ABC’s Cristela. It’s just so cute and sweet and funny. Last week was more of the same. Natalia (or Ama), Cristela’s mother, decided the whole family was going to a friend’s granddaughter’s quinceanera, and she basically ordered Cristela to invite “Josh from work” as her date because her daughter dating a white man would look good to everyone. Cristela balked at first but eventually gave in after Ama showed up at her work and invited Josh herself for Cristela. While at the party, Cristela refused to dance, and through a conversation with Daniela, we learned that she thought she wasn’t good enough for someone like Josh, that a man like him wouldn’t like her. In the end, he convinced her he wanted to dance with her, so they did. It was very sweet…and I loved Cristela’s jealousy at the attention a pretty woman paid to Josh (who was actually a little oblivious. LOL).

I’m a big Cristela/Josh shipper, but I’m glad they aren’t rushing them into a relationship. Hopefully that’s where they’re planning to take the pair, but if they aren’t, that’s where my imagination comes in. 😉 Tonight is a double episode, so I’m excited to get twice the fun!

On tonight’s first episode, “Latino 101,” Trent picks Cristela to sit at his table for the trial of a landlord accused of not renting to minorities. But his reason for doing so — to show a minority on the landlord’s side — backfires on him, and Cristela must decide whether to use an advantage she did not earn through hard work. Meanwhile, as Alberto starts bonding with Natalia, Daniela becomes suspicious that perhaps he’s “using Ama to get in good with Cristela.” Then on the second new episode, “Great Expectations,” when tasked by Trent to motivate Maddie’s work ethic, Cristela has to think fast to come up with creative ways to convince Maddie to get through their shared workload. Meanwhile back at home, Daniela is on a work trip as Felix finds himself alone and taking care of the kids.

Laugh along with me tonight on ABC at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Grimm & Bride By Design.

12monkeys327smallLast week, there were some big developments on 12 Monkeys! Cassie and Aaron weren’t too pleased to see Cole splinter back into their lives just when they thought they had finally put an end to the events that led to the virus outbreak. Now they found themselves on a mission to find Oliver Peters, the scientist who created the strain of the virus.

Meanwhile, in 2043, Ramse broke into Jones’s lab and stole the time-travel serum. He later had a run-in with Jennifer, who told him he was going to be a good friend, just not yet, but something was going to happen that day that would change everything. When he returned to camp, he discovered that Elena, the mother of his child, had been accidentally killed during a skirmish with the soldiers. An emotional Ramse then made his way to the room with the machine, injected himself with the serum, and splintered. But since Ramse doesn’t have a tracker, there was no way to pull him back. So now it’s now up to Cole — who is already living on borrowed time (no pun intended) — to follow Ramse back to 1987 and stop him before he does something bad.

Just how many splinters does Cole have left, and will he even be able to return from 1987? What is Ramse’s plan — does he even have one? Can Cole win back his friend, or is Ramse now too far gone? Will Ramse’s friendship with Jennifer begin in 1987? And does this mean he is a part of the army of the 12 Monkeys? Will Cole and his crew ever figure out how to stop the army from releasing the virus?! There’s just a few more exciting episodes left to the season! (I’m really glad they’ve already been picked up for a second!)

On tonight’s episode, “Shonin,” Cole’s last-ditch effort to stop the army of the 12 Monkeys brings him to Tokyo in the year 1987.

Find out what happens in Tokyo tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

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