If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/13/15

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

brooklyn991213smallLast week on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, we basically met the complete opposite of Jake and Rosa – cop partners from Sweden who were there to find stolen diamonds. They were all sorts of touchy-feely, waaaaaaay too far into each other’s personal business (*snicker* The best line of the night was that he already had his sperm in a tooperware container when she and her husband were trying to have a baby.), and were overly cheerful yet…condescending, too. Of course, Jake and Rosa don’t touch, don’t talk, certainly don’t share sperm, and much to Jake’s disappointment, don’t even share things like what he should get Amy for their anniversary or that Rosa and Marcus broke up. In the end, they were able to solve the case and Rosa not only helped Jake out with a gift idea, but she shared that she has a new boyfriend – only admitting his name was…*gasp* Tom *gasp*…after she’d downed a bunch of shots.

I love the show this year. It’s fun seeing the different pairings working together, and I love that we know Jake and Amy are together but it hasn’t affected anything negatively in terms of the show or how they work together, etc. Tonight is the fall finale, and it was a fantastic episode (gotta love the press screening rooms. *grin*). One of my favorites. There’s some great scenes with Jake and Charles, which are always fun, and an awesome story line with Capt. Holt, Rosa, and Amy. Overall, it’s a great way to go into the fall break.

On tonight’s episode, “Yippie Kayak,” Jake, Charles and Gina are involved in a real-life Die Hard situation while off-duty on Christmas Eve, and Terry must leave his family celebration to try to save his squad. Meanwhile, Amy tries to prove she’s just as tough as Holt and Rosa. Dean Winters, Merrin Dungey, and Jamal Duff guest star.

To see what predicament Jake, Charles, and Gina find themselves in, tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Librarians, Jill and Jessa: Counting On, Agent X, Holiday Baking Championship, CSI: Cyber, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

lastmanonearth1213smallIn last week’s episode of The Last Man on Earth, the gang was celebrating Christmas with a Secret Santa gift swap. The rest of the group was still upset with Phil, so Tandy arranged for him to get Erica’s name – and even gave him the Hope Diamond to give her. When it came time for the gift swap, Phil gave himself a yacht…to blow up, Carol gave Melissa a pair of bedazzled boots, Melissa gave Todd the prom king moment he never had, Erica gave Carol a chair from Oprah’s studio (with J-Lo’s green dress underneath), Todd got Gail the ZZ Top car, and Gail just grabbed a wicker ball off the table and gave it to Phil. When it was Phil’s turn, he gave Erica an ultrasound machine so that she could see her baby. While this seemed to repair the Phil relationship for most people, Tandy was upset that Phil didn’t give her the diamond. Later, Phil collapsed to the ground, and everyone looked at one another, not knowing what to do.

Meanwhile, we also got a lot more of Mike out in space. After his last pet worm Terry died, Mike realized he was all alone and decided to eject himself into outer space. But just after he clicked the button to open the airlock, he noticed a new worm in Terry’s cage and tried to cancel the airlock open sequence, but it was too late.

What’s wrong with Phil, and can any of these non-doctor survivors figure out a way to help him?! Also, I really love the stuff with Mike, and I hope they can find a way for him to reunite with his brother – or at least let Mike and Tandy discover that the other is still alive. Last week’s episode could have easily been the midseason finale, so I’m really interested to see what they leave us with cliffhanger-wise tonight!

On tonight’s fall finale, “Silent Night,” Gail is under pressure to make the best of a bad situation; Melissa and Todd have trouble in paradise.

Find out what happens with Phil tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Quantico, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Librarians, Into the Badlands, Getting On, and Homeland.
