If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/16/15

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!

moonbeamcitysmallTonight, Comedy Central kicks off its new retro animated spoof of 1980s cop dramas, Moonbeam City. Rob Lowe stars as Dazzle Novak, an unpredictable, self-centered womanizer who works as a detective for the metropolitan police department. He’s constantly trying to prove that he’s the best cop on the force and is always playing a game of one-upmanship with equally competitive rival Rad Cunningham (Will Forte). Chief Pizzaz Miller (Elizabeth Banks) tries to reign in Dazzle but knows his unorthodox methods get the job done. Meanwhile, ambitious young rookie Chrysalis (Kate Mara) is trying to prove she’s ready to take on some cases.

The series is like Archer meets Miami Vice. It’s set in the flashy, neon style of the 1980s with a very synthy soundtrack. The cops of Moonbeam City don pastel suits as they chase down drug dealers, thieves, or whatever criminal element shows up that week. Dazzle is crude and politically incorrect but somehow manages to get the job done — and always finds time to hop into bed with some ladies. This is certainly not a show for kids — it’s very adult-themed and filled with sex, drugs, violence, and language.

While I wasn’t blown away by tonight’s episode, I did find a lot of humor, saw definite potential, and look forward to checking out more of the show. Rob Lowe is great, playing his typical larger-than-life Rob Lowe persona, while Will Forte gives an equally-entertaining performance as pretty much a less suave, more whiney Rob Lowe.

On tonight’s episode, “Mall Hath No Fury,” set in the mean streets of a crime-ridden metropolis, dashing but dim-witted detective Dazzle Novak is determined to get his “#1 Cop” mug back from his chief rival, Rad Cunningham, while an underworld kingpin wreaks havoc on Moonbeam City.

If you don’t want to wait, you can check out tonight’s premiere early on ComedyCentral.com.

Go back to the 1980s tonight on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, MasterChef, Young & Hungry, Kevin From Work, The League, You’re the Worst, The Jim Gaffigan Show, Impastor, and Twinning,

masterchef2015smallIt’s time for this season of MasterChef to come to an end tonight, but I’m not sure who I want to win. I do know that I don’t want Stephen to win though. He is incredibly annoying and pompous. While he is indeed talented, I just don’t like listening to him at all. If it’s down to Claudia and Derrick, my money is on Derrick, but my heart is with Claudia. Derrick is super talented, but Claudia is doing it for her kids, so that has to count for something. It was sad watching Nick get eliminated last week, especially because it would appear that he and Claudia really formed a strong friendship. Unfortunately, friendships don’t last long in reality television, so it’s always a heartbreak at the end. Hopefully tonight is full of intense culinary battles and whoever takes the title truly earned it.

On tonight’s two-hour finale, “Team Gordon Ramsay/The Finale,” the three remaining contestants create dishes for 30 guests with an important role in the culinary world. The losing two cooks create three classic dishes in the pressure test. Then the remaining two cooks create a three-course meal, and finally, the winner is revealed.

To see who takes the prize, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching America’s Got Talent.
