If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/31/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice

greaselivesmallWe’ve had The Sound of Music, Peter Pan, and The Wiz. Now, we get another classic: Grease. Julianne Hough (Dancing with the Stars) and Aaron Tveit (Graceland) star as the iconic Sandy and Danny, with other big names such as Ana Gasteyer, Carly Rae Jepsen, Mario Lopez, and Vanessa Hudgens among others.

What’s interesting about the production tonight is that the cast will be wearing GoPro cameras between scenes to show audiences online the frenetic chaos that goes on as they sprint from set to set and get ready to do the next scene. They WANT the audience to see the production of it, as well as enjoy the musical as they normally would, and that’s definitely something new and different.

Sing along tonight with the songs you remember and hear new ones too on FOX at 7/6c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Guy’s Grocery Games, Worst Cooks in America, CSI: Cyber, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

galavant131smallTonight, the second season of ABC’s medieval musical comedy Galavant comes to a close. Last week, Richard, Roberta, and Sid rushed Galavant to the shop of Neo of Sporin after Sid accidentally stabbed him with a sword. Afterwards, Neo gave the guys his army of half-dead zombie warriors to command in the forthcoming battle. Sid felt bad about almost killing Galavant and took off to find a way to redeem himself. Bobby also decided to leave, as she doesn’t want to witness Richard’s death in battle. So she headed off for her aunt’s farm across the Lonely Sea, in the shadow of Mount Spinster, where there are loads of cats.

Back at Valencia, Gareth was experiencing the unfamiliar sense of joy – he didn’t understand why his lip ends would twist up or why he was constantly flapping his fingers at friends. Madalena revealed her true feelings to Gareth. However, against his wishes, she made a dark magic deal with Wormwood. And in Hortensia, Isabella discovered that the armory was just filled with toys. She contemplated surrendering to Madalena but changed her mind upon hearing her terms.

Tonight, we finally get to the epic battle we’ve been hearing about all season. I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s finale – there are some great musical numbers and lots of action and comedy. And I’m happy to report that, while they do still leave the ability for a third season, the writers are not pushing their luck this time around and give the show a proper ending that could also serve as a series finale if need be. While I would love to get more of this show, tonight’s finale definitely serves as a satisfying conclusion to the tale.

On the first half of tonight’s finale, “Battle of the Three Armies,” Isabella is ready to give up against Valencia until Galavant arrives with his zombie army. In the second half hour, “The One True King (To Unite Them All),” Madalena and Wormwood’s spell could turn the tide of the war, but Sid has other ideas; and Richard is inspired to perform something approaching a heroic act.

To see how the season (series?) ends, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Grease: Live, Worst Cooks in America, Shameless, Billions, and The Venture Bros.
