If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/8/16

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!

lucifer28smallI was quite skeptical when I first heard about the new show Lucifer, but after watching the first two episodes, I can say that I am pleasantly surprised. There are many reasons why this show works for me, including the incredible sexy leading man and the fact that it’s a procedural with a twist, but at the end of the day it’s simply an entertaining new show to spice up my regular television landscape.

On the last episode, Lucifer showed that while he has no issue with people sinning, he takes great offense to people using God’s word and hell to scare people into donating money, which is why he scared the crap out of a guy doing just that on the street. I admit I giggled, because there’s nothing worse than a hypocrite. Chloe has been working on trying to figure out who Lucifer really is and why he didn’t exist up until 5 years ago – the idea that he really is THE Lucifer is just too far-fetched for her, I suppose. The case of the week involved a paparazzo who was accused of murder and confessed, but Chloe didn’t believe he did it, and neither did Lucifer. This sent them on a wild-goose chase to find the actual killer, which they did in the end. Although Chloe had to step in to stop Lucifer’s little game of Russian roulette between Nick and his protégé, Josh, who Nick was taking the fall for, where they try to shoot each other, only there were no bullets in Josh’s gun. In the midst of it, Chloe showed up, and Lucifer realized he was wrong and used brother Amenadiel because he knew that his arrival would slow time down just enough for Lucifer to step in and grab the bullet from Nick’s gun midair. Lucifer then realizes that he is in fact changing, and it’s due to someone in his life: Chloe.

I’m really enjoying the building relationship between Lucifer and Chloe, but I’m curious to see how long they can play this Chloe not believing he’s the devil story, because after a while, she’s going to have to figure it out.

On tonight’s episode, “The Would-Be Prince of Darkness,” when a 22-year-old future superstar quarterback wakes up to find a dead girl floating in his swimming pool, he turns to his friend, Lucifer, for help. Lucifer enlists Chloe to investigate the case, which leads to the world of big-money sports and people who will literally kill to be number one.

To see if Chloe can help clear this quarterback’s name, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Scorpion, Supergirl, Superstore, NCIS: LA, and Castle.

scorpion28smallThe last episode of Scorpion was both scary and full of funny moments, which is actually pretty par for the course with this show. Walter went out on a date with Linda, the woman who runs the speed-dating service, but as well as he thought it went, it actually went that much worse, especially for the woman, who ended up getting kidnapped and then walked into their office with a bomb strapped to her. The man behind it told them to sabotage the rocket launch they were supposed to be helping NASA with or he would blow her up. It was fun seeing how Walter and Paige tried to figure out how to keep her safe while the others figured out how to sabotage the launch…and then they – and we – figured out it was MERRICK who was behind it! In the course of fighting with Cabe, Merrick fell over the side of the rocket stand thing and is now dead. They ended up saving not only Linda but the rocket launch and astronauts as well. The funniest part had to be Walter’s unfortunately timed messages to Linda about how her day was going, etc. Talk about bombing his post-date behavior. LOL

This show is really outrageous, and it’s hard to believe a lot of the things the team does, but because it’s so entertaining, it’s one I suspend disbelief while watching and just enjoy. It’s been that way from the beginning, and I’m still enjoying it as much now as I did from the very first episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Fractured,” after a powerful earthquake rocks Los Angeles, Team Scorpion must fix a pinched gas line to prevent a massive explosion. Penn Jillette guest stars as Toby and Walter’s couples counselor.

To see why Toby and Walter need a couples counselor, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids Baking Championship, Superstore, Cake Wars, The Magicians, Lucifer, & NCIS: LA.

castle28smallIt’s been almost three months since we last got a new episode of Castle. When we left off, Castle and Beckett were investigating a murder aboard a cruise ship when they finally had the discussion they should have had way back at the beginning of the season. Why couldn’t Beckett have just told Castle the truth from the start, and they could have just had a fake breakup, instead of her instigating a real one?! After their talk, the couple decided to get back together in reality but, for the sake of the LOCKSAT investigation, continue to pretend to be broken up in public.

I was really getting sick of this whole breakup thing and was happy it was finally over, though I was a little annoyed that they were going to continue to keep up the facade. However, I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and this whole not letting Ryan and Esposito know leads to a lot of really fun moments, so I’m happy to continue with this fake breakup for a while. I’m really glad to see that the fun show I’ve enjoyed for so many years has finally returned!

On tonight’s midseason premiere, “Tone Death,” a body is found in a theater where Martha is working, so Castle and Beckett investigate and are surprised to learn how cutthroat a cappella singers can be.

Find out how the investigation goes tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, Superstore, Telenovela, The X-Files, Lucifer, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, and The Magicians.
