If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/22/16

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!

unforgettable2016smallI was so glad that A&E brought Unforgettable when I was sure it was going to be canceled after the last season ended. And this season has been great, even with the cast changes. I miss Eliot (Dallas Roberts) and Joanne (Jane Curtin) especially, but Alani “La La” Anthony as Delina the M.E., Kathy Najimy as Sandra the boss, and E.J. Bonilla as cutie Denny have been great additions. In the latest episode, the body of a young woman was found buried on the beach, and Carrie and Al found and arrested her killer and his accountant (or so they thought). Unfortunately, they were shot at and had to take cover from the bad guys and the coming hurricane in Precinct 51, which was closed for renovation with only an administrative assistant and a green cop (on the job literally four days) on the premises. The bad guys found them, but Denny and Jay drove through the storm to back them up, and they were able to take all the bad guys down, including the accountant…who turned out to be the actual big bad boss. I loved at the end when they met at the boardwalk and Carrie gave out shots to everyone, toasting to Al and to the others for coming to their assistance.

Tonight was supposed to be the two episodes leading up to next week’s final two of the season, but A&E decided to air four episodes tonight, which includes the season finale. I’m hoping that doesn’t mean that it’s the final episode of the SERIES, although since we haven’t heard any renewal news yet and they’re airing four episodes in one night, I have a feeling that news won’t be good. I really hope we get some resolution tonight on a few things. One, Carrie and Al. They’ve been hinting off and on all season that there’s something going on, although they’re either not exclusive or not serious or something, what with her (now ex) husband showing up a few times and their kiss. I WANT to see Carrie and Al kiss and become official, darn it! Also, I would love to get some resolution to Carrie’s sister’s murder. That story line has been a big part of her history since episode one.

On tonight’s first episode, “Game On,” when a young man turns up dead inside a popular haunted-house attraction, Carrie and Al are called in to investigate and soon find themselves in a world of high-stakes video games and hi-tech corporate espionage. Then on the second episode, “About Face,” when a hot lead turns up in a cold case of a missing surgeon, Carrie and Al find themselves on the trail of two con artists. But unmasking the truth may have explosive consequences.

On the third episode, “Bad Company,” when Captain Russo is suspected in the murder of an informant, Carrie and Al enter into a cat-and-mouse game with a crooked former cop. And finally, on the season finale, “Paranoid Android,” when a shooter on the loose triggers a flashback that doesn’t add up with Carrie’s perfect memory, the team at Major Crimes discovers that a nefarious conspiracy is at play and trained killers are among them.

Enjoy the mini-marathon and see how the season (possibly series?) ends tonight on A&E starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, American Diner Revival, Hawaii Five-0, Hell’s Kitchen, Blue Bloods, & Burgers, Brew & ‘Que.

childrenshospital2016smallTonight, Childrens Hospital reopens its doors for its seventh season on Adult Swim, and from the trailer it looks like there’s a lot of hilarity and craziness in store this season! The cast is comprised of incredibly talented comedians, and it looks like almost the entire gang is returning again this year – hospital administrator Sy Mittleman (Henry Winkler, Parks and Recreation), Chief (Megan Mullally, You, Me and the Apocalypse), Dr. Lola Spratt (Erinn Hayes, The Hotwives of Las Vegas), Dr. Cat Black (Lake Bell, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp), Dr. Owen Maestro (Rob Huebel, Transparent), Dr. Blake Downs (Rob Corddry, Ballers), Dr. Glenn Richie (Ken Marino, Agent Carter), nurses Beth (Beth Dover, Another Period) and Dori (Zandy Hartig, Wainy Days), and ambulance driver Chet (Brian Huskey, Another Period). Plus, I’m sure a lot more famous faces will be popping up as guest stars – George Wendt can be seen in the season trailer.

Even though each episode of this medical spoof is only 15 minutes long, it feels like the writers pack in more jokes than your average sitcom (well, maybe not more than Angie Tribeca). I can’t wait to see what crazy hijinks this irreverent hospital staff gets mixed up in this season!

On tonight’s premiere, “Kids Hospital,” the doctors find new jobs at a crosstown hospital after being fired by Blake, who turns to a life of crime with his brother, Sir Tinklebutton.

Catch the season premiere tonight on Adult Swim/Cartoon Network at 11/10c.

I’ll also be watching/recording MasterChef: Junior.

hawaiifiveo122smallFriday nights are easily one of my favorite nights of television because I get to see my TV boyfriend, Alex O’Loughlin. He still doesn’t know yet, but it’s okay. I’ll enjoy my fantasy regardless. Hawaii Five-0 has been having a very intense and entertaining season, which was needed after having some ups and downs with their flow of story lines last season. I haven’t been enjoying seeing so little of Danny on the episodes, because I enjoy the bromance between Danny and McGarrett. It seems like Danny is gone every couple of episodes, which is strange because he’s usually such a staple part of the show.

Last week was one of the weeks where Danny wasn’t present, but despite that, it was a great episode. Chin and Abby finally hooked up, which was long overdue, and I think it’s a good thing for Chin to finally move on from his wife’s death. The case of the week was sad because it involved a boy getting shot when he was looking for wood to complete his project for the boys’ camp. It was a case of mistaken identity. It turned out that the boy was shot by a man who was just trying to get rid of the evidence that his grandfather was involved in spying during WWII. He shot the boy because all he saw was the shadow of someone with a knife, and he shot the kid in what he called self-defense. The case was solved, but it was a little emotional because the man was just trying to honor his dead grandfather, who had changed into a whole new man since his days as a spy. Elsewhere, Steve’s aunt came back to lay her husband to rest and live out her bucket list because her time was short. She managed to fulfill everything on her list but climbing a big mountain, so when Steve realized she had died, he saw the list and wanted to take her ashes there to say good-bye. That was a sad moment for sure because I loved his aunt and all the antics she’d get up to.

On tonight’s episode, “Umia Ka Hanu,” while Grover travels to Chicago to finally get a confession from Clay Maxwell about killing his wife, Chin and Kono are held at gunpoint by two killers who have no idea they are cops.

To find out if Grover can finally put this case to rest, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, MasterChef: Junior, and Hell’s Kitchen.
