If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/13/15

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

ncisla413smallMy top pick tonight is NCIS: LA. On the last new ep, the team investigated when a missile test was hijacked. Hetty brought in a young college student/genius tech girl — who already had a job at one of the government agencies waiting for her when she graduated — because she was even better at hacking and what not than both Nell and Eric. Nell got extremely jealous when it Eric seemed to be infatuated with the girl. It was cut, in the end, when he realized he didn’t fit in with the younger crowd as well as he thought he did. He came slinking back into OSP and met up with Nell, and they had an adorably fun moment flying a drone that Nell had just upgraded.

I love that we got the glimpse of Nell and Eric’s non-relationship relationship — they’re too cute together — but I’m eager to hear more about Deeks and LAPD’s IA investigation into him. There are only a handful of new episodes left in the season, so if we’re going to get some sort of conclusion before next season, I think that story line needs to be kicked into high gear. Unfortunately, this ep once again focuses on Callen (which isn’t a BAD thing…), but it’s especially irritating because Kensi has to go undercover as his girlfriend. *laugh*

On tonight’s episode, “Rage,” Callen and Sam resume their undercover identities as a prisoner and guard to infiltrate a white supremacist group believed to be in possession of stolen nuclear material, while Kensi transforms herself into a tattooed biker to play the part of Callen’s girlfriend. Also, Callen’s first meeting with Hetty is revealed.

To see how Callen met Hetty, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

Kyle’s Choice

batesmotel413smallThis season of Bates Motel has been really good so far. Last week, Norma was run off the road by a man working for Bob Paris, who wanted the flash drive. Back at the motel, Norman was still fuming over the news that Dylan had been hiding Caleb in his barn. He told the story to Emma, who did a good job pretending it was news to her. Dylan arrived and was surprised that Norman hadn’t told their mother yet. However, the reason Norman never talked to Norma was because he had another one of his blackouts. Meanwhile, Gunner managed to decrypt the flash drive, revealing illegal investments involving some of White Pine Bay’s richest. Norma asked Romero to arrange a meeting between her and Bob, where she asked for a billboard, highway exit, and pool for the motel in exchange for the information. When she returned home, Dylan came clean about Caleb, but Norma panicked, grabbed her gun, and bolted from the house.

Is Norma headed to the barn to kill Caleb? Or is she so nervous at the thought of him that she’s just taking off and getting out of town? And what about Norman — did he do anything bad during his last blackout that we don’t know of yet? This season, we are seeing more and more glimpses of that creepy Norman Bates we’ve come to know from the films — first the sleeping in his mother’s bed and then last week with him knowing the exact dress his mother was wearing the previous day and then creepily hugging it and sticking it under his mattress. I’m looking forward to seeing where the story goes next.

On tonight’s episode, “Norma Louise,” Norma considers a life outside of White Pine Bay, leaving Norman in a vulnerable position. As Dylan and Emma bond over helping their friend through a rough night, Caleb makes a difficult decision and Romero is confronted by a new threat.

Find out what Norma’s decision is and how Norman reacts tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Gotham, The Following, Jane the Virgin, The Returned, and TURN.

Jenny’s Choice #2

mikeandmolly413smallMike & Molly has been a lot better than I thought it was going to be when Molly quit her job and became as unstable as her mom and sister. They’ve toned down the physical comedy that Melissa McCarthy is so into in her movies, and now it’s a lot more tolerable. As someone who works in the publishing business (I’m an editor for an online book publisher), and someone who is friends with multiple authors (both published by a publishing company and self-published), I do love how they didn’t make Molly’s book an overnight success. She had to work her butt off once it was published in order to promote it and get sales. That’s how it truly works, so I loved that they didn’t make it too easy for her. And speaking of books… Watching her try to work with Peggy to write Peggy’s life story is a lot of fun. Peggy is a hoot. Last week, when the two of them and Mike went to a party to introduce new authors, one of the funniest parts was when Peggy was messing with the living statue. *laugh*

On tonight’s episode, “Mudlick or Bust,” Molly surprises Peggy by reuniting her with her estranged sister, Rosemary (Margo Martindale), when they take a road trip to Peggy’s hometown of Mudlick. Also, Vince and Mike experience father-son bonding when they work together to fix the water heater.

See if the reunion is good or bad tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, Scorpion, & Food Fortunes.
