If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/7/15

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

ncisla127smallTonight should be an exciting episode of NCIS: LA. The last episode dealt with terrorist recruitment for Isis. I always love seeing Kensi go undercover, and this was no exception. One of the funniest parts was Callen ragging on Kensi for her messy desk, and it was no shocker that Deeks put him up to it. Other than that, it was an okay episode, but of course the highlight was finally getting to the meat of the IA investigation into Deeks. At the end, he was arrested for killing someone named Francis Boyle. Kensi’s reaction was…weird. There’s really no other way to put it. Hopefully she was just in shock, even though Deeks didn’t seem to be.

I can’t see them making Deeks a killer, not unless it was justified. I kind of want this to go more than one episode because just making it one ep feels like a short payoff for something that’s been hinted at for quite a while now. Then again, I DON’T want it to drag out. Ideally, Deeks would be cleared on tonight’s episode and then they would work to find out who the killer really is or something in another episode later on. So who was Francis Boyle? Deeks’s old partner? I was assuming so (and then the description confirmed it), so…we’ll see how it plays out tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Internal Affairs,” while Deeks is under arrest and interrogated for the murder of his former partner, the team races to try and prove his innocence. Patrick St. Esprit & Pamela Reed guest star as Lieutenant Bates & Roberta Deeks.

See if the team can prove Deeks’s innocence tonight on CBS at 9:59/8:59c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great Christmas Light Fight, Supergirl, Cake Wars, Major Crimes, Scorpion, & The Great Holiday Baking Show.

telenovela127smallLife imitates art in tonight’s special 1-hour preview of the hilarious new NBC sitcom Telenovela. Ana Sofia (Eva Longoria, Desperate Housewives) is the star of a popular Spanish language soap opera. However, there is one minor problem: she doesn’t actually speak any Spanish. And to make things worse, the network president (Zachary Levi, Chuck) has hired her ex-husband Xavier (Jencarlos Canela) to play her new love interest. This also doesn’t sit well with Ana’s GBFF, co-star Gael (Jose Moreno Brooks), who’s worried about another hot guy taking his place.

The series’ other wacky characters include Ana’s BFF/head of wardrobe Mimi (Diana Maria Riva, The Bridge), the always-hungover show writer Isaac (Izzy Diaz), bitter aging co-star Isabela (Alex Meneses, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman), and other castmates Rodrigo (Amaury Nolasco, Prison Break) and Roxie (Jadyn Douglas).

I had originally sat down to just watch the screeners for tonight’s two episodes. However, I was enjoying the show so much that I couldn’t stop watching and checked out another 2 episodes NBC had made available on their press site. This show is so much fun. I love how all of the behind-the-scenes drama on the set of this soap feel like telenovela plot twists themselves – who cheated on whom, evil twins, rivalries, etc. I found myself laughing more and more at each episode, falling for these hilarious characters. The chemistry between all of the characters is so great. They’ve put together quite an ensemble. They could pair up any of these characters and end up with a fun scene!

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” Ana gets a big surprise when her former husband joins the cast of her telenovela. And in the second episode, “Evil Twin,” Ana implements an honesty policy to end all the secrets at the show, but the new rule is severely tested by a workplace romance and a surprise visitor.

Check out the preview of this new show tonight on NBC at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, The Great Holiday Baking Show, Fargo, Major Crimes, and Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter.
 

Megan’s Choice

scorpion127smallScorpion hasn’t just been providing great action moments this season. It’s been hitting all the emotional notes as well, especially where Walter and Slyvester are concerned. Walter’s sister, Megan, died after her battle with MS, but she wasn’t just Walter’s sister – she was Slyvester’s wife after he married her so that Walter didn’t have control over her medical choices anymore. It was a very emotional episode, with Walter’s parents there to be with Megan and the team was working on ridding the hospital of a major fungal outbreak. Walter managed to get there at the last minute to say good-bye to Megan, but she had a video message sent to him after she passed, where she reminded him that he isn’t just his brain, that he is his heart and people love him. I was in tears, and the episode ended with Walter choosing to talk to everyone and tell a story about how Megan covered for him in school one time. I’m sure we’ll see a lot of the emotional fallout for Sylvester and Walter throughout the season to come, but I hope it helps Walter learn to live a little.

On tonight’s episode, “The Old College Try,” Team Scorpion goes undercover at a university to find a hacker who infiltrates the Federal Reserve and threatens to collapse the world economy.

To find out how this undercover adventure turns out, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, NCIS: LA, Supergirl, Telenovela, The Great Holiday Baking Show, and Cake Wars.
