If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/16/15

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!

Kyle’s Choice

humans816smallTonight, the first season of AMC’s sentient robot drama Humans comes to a close. Last week, Karen confronted Niska, telling her they were a mistake and needed to be destroyed, but in the scuffle that followed, she accidentally shot and killed George. Elsewhere, Leo and Fred tracked down Max’s body, but it was in bad shape. Meanwhile, Joe returned home, agreeing to sleep on the couch, and was soon joined by the first of many houseguests, Niska. Shortly afterward, Leo and Fred arrived, and everyone got to work trying to save Max’s “life.” They managed to get him stable but had to wait 13 hours for Max to fully charge to see the extent of his damages. The synths spent this time bonding with various members of the Hawkins family.

When Max finally did wake up, he didn’t look good, and Leo realized that he was dying. Leo wanted to unlock the secret formula for creating sentient synths and try use that to save Max, but the others weren’t so sure. Meanwhile, Karen showed up, and Leo became an emotional wreck seeing this woman who looked exactly like his mother. She told Niska that she had a change of heart and that she had a safe place where they could all be together. However, just then a heavily armed strike force, led by Hobb, busted down the door.

What does Hobb want with the synths? Will he destroy them like he’s been told to, or does he have more sinister plans? Will the Hawkins family be able to rescue their new friends before it’s too late? Will these sentient synths use their secret to increase their numbers? And if so, how will the public react to this? Also, what’s up with that odd hand twitching thing Fred’s got going on?

I have really enjoyed this first season. While it’s been a slow burn, it’s set up some really interesting drama and thought-provoking storylines. I’m looking forward to seeing where the story will end tonight and what will be set up for the show’s second season.

On tonight’s episode, the synths are captured by Hobb, and only the Hawkins family can save them.

To see if the Hawkins family can save the synths, tune in to AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Strain, Food Network Star, The Last Ship, Falling Skies, Show Me a Hero, and The Brink.
