If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/16/15

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!

Megan’s Choice

scorpion1116smallWalter has had some difficult challenges on Scorpion, but usually his intelligence helps get him out of trouble. Unfortunately, what his brain can’t do is get him out of an emotional situation. Walter’s sister is dying of MS, and she’s taken a turn for the worst. Sylvester, who is Megan’s boyfriend and in love with her, didn’t tell Walter right away when she got pneumonia because she told him not to, and Walter didn’t take kindly to this. Sylvester pointed out that at the end of the day, it’s all Megan’s choice. Walter believes he can rescue all her brain and personality traits onto a computer so that he can one day upload them into a new body and he’ll have his sister back…which means he wants her kept alive at all costs. Megan isn’t on the same page because she is tired of suffering and doesn’t want to keep being put on machines. Sylvester told Walter that it was Megan’s choice, not his, and Walter didn’t take that well.

The whole episode showed Walter taking unnecessary risks to make enough money to fund the project to save Megan, and the team was almost killed because of it. Someone needs to get Walter under control before his fear of losing his sister ruins the lives of his team as well as himself. I do understand, but you can’t hold on to every loved one forever. Sometimes you need to let go, and no matter how hard it is, everyone should get the choice to decide what happens to them.

On tonight’s episode, “US vs. UN vs. UK,” Team Scorpion is blackmailed to break into the United Nations to assist in the assassination of a menacing arms dealer. Also, Sylvester makes a bold move to protect Megan’s wishes.

To see what move Sylvester makes, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Blindspot, Minority Report, and Gotham.

Kyle’s Choice

castle1116smallOn last week’s Castle, we saw the return of Detective Ethan Slaughter, who showed up at Castle’s office, asking for help to clear his name in a robbery case. Meanwhile, Ryan and Esposito were officially assigned to the case but always seemed to be a few steps behind. Castle and Slaughter eventually ended up tied up and at gunpoint. But when Castle learned that Slaughter was a musical theater major, they reenacted a scene from West Side Story to knock out the bad guys. And of course Ryan and Esposito showed up a couple minutes after the action.

While I really enjoyed the return of Slaughter and Castle’s new consultant Hayley Shipton has been a fun addition, it’s about time they end this whole Castle/Beckett separation nonsense! I loved Castle’s mother saying, “The separation thing is getting really old,” in last week’s episode – we all agree!

On tonight’s episode, “The Last Seduction,” a seductive con man is killed, and the investigation has Castle and Beckett questioning New York City’s upper crust. Meanwhile, Castle has a surprise in store for his and Beckett’s one-year anniversary as husband and wife.

See what surprise Castle has in store for Beckett tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Blindspot, Gotham, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, Fargo, Major Crimes, and Legends.
