If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/28/16

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!

supergirl328smallI’m really looking forward to tonight’s The Flash/Supergirl crossover event! On last week’s episode of Supergirl, National City was still dealing with the aftermath of the evil Red-Kryptonite version of Supergirl and had become afraid of this hero they once trusted. A military task force led by Hank Henshaw’s old friend Col. Jim Harper had arrived to investigate J’onn J’onzz and the D.E.O., and they wanted to know what had happened to the real Hank. And so we got a flashback of how Hank and J’onn met and bonded 10 years earlier. Meanwhile, Kara revealed her identity to Lucy in order to get her help saving J’onn. Afterwards, J’onn wiped Jim’s memories, but at the same time discovered that Alex & Kara’s father, Jeremiah, was still alive and at Project Cadmus; and Lucy was named the new acting head of the D.E.O.

Both The Flash and Supergirl have a much lighter and more fun tone than many of the other current DC TV shows, so I think these two are perfect for a crossover. However, how do you bring a character like the Flash to National City in such a way that doesn’t completely change both shows – i.e. introducing metahumans into Supergirl’s world, or having The Flash suddenly dealing with escaped alien prisoners? It seems like the answer will lie in the fact that The Flash has already introduced this concept of alternate universes. We have already seen the Barry Allen of our Earth and of Earth 2, so where will this new Flash be from, what will his personality be like, and how different is his world from Kara’s? And how will the two team up and utilize both their powers? I’m really looking forward to tonight’s crossover event!

On tonight’s episode, “Worlds Finest,” the Flash arrives in National City from an alternate universe. He teams up with Supergirl to battle the villains Livewire and Silver Banshee, in exchange for Supergirl’s help finding him a way to return home.

To see how the Flash and Supergirl team up, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Blindspot, Gotham, Lucifer, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, Bates Motel, The Magicians, and Better Call Saul.

ncisla328smallLast week’s NCIS: LA was kind of heartbreaking. We watched as a young boy looked in the mirror at a bomb strapped to his chest. Then he and his twin brother ran away from a group of men, and sadly, one of the boys ran out in front of a car and the bomb strapped to him exploded, killing him. When Callen finally found his twin, he had climbed into a water tower on the roof of a building and threatened to blow himself and Callen up if Callen came any closer. It turned out that the twins were only two of a small group of children who’d been basically kidnapped at birth and then sold to a terrorist group overseas and brought over to become suicide bombers. Callen was able to talk the boy down after introducing him via video conference to his birth parents and his brother – triplets, not twins! – who hadn’t known about them before that. And then Sam was able to talk the other kids into surrendering by explaining that they had families, when they’d been lied to like the other boys. It was scary and tense through the whole episode.

Of course, then there was the lighter side stuff with Kensi & Deeks… He found a “mommy” magazine in Kensi’s bag, and although she said she didn’t have anything to tell him, it opened a whole new line of thought between the couple. In the end, they realized it was too soon for babies, but Deeks basically proposed, asking if it was too soon for the partners to get married. She didn’t say no, although they came to the conclusion that he would get down on one knee with a ring at the beach. Squee!

On tonight’s episode, “Seoul Man,” while assigned to protective details for the commander of the Pacific Command, the team searches for a North Korean spy.

See if the team can find the spy tonight on CBS at 9:59/8:59c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cake Wars, Scorpion, Lucifer, & Blindspot.

lucifer328smallLucifer is coming into its own as a procedural lately, which is no surprise, considering it’s produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. This show started off as a slightly comical side of how Lucifer got tired of being in charge of Hell, but now it’s so much more. Lucifer is helping Chloe solve cases but is learning how to build friendships with others at the same time. For example, last week he actually formed a bond with a priest. Yes, the devil and a priest ended up playing a piano duet together, and surprisingly it didn’t even come off as cheesy. Speaking of piano duets… Chloe and Lucifer had a moment at the end of the episode where Chloe went to find Lucifer to comfort him after the priest died. They ended up playing “Heart & Soul” on the piano together, and it was adorable. I’m really interested to see where this goes, especially now that Lucifer’s brother has sent someone to kill him.

On tonight’s episode, “Pops,” Lucifer and Chloe are tasked with solving the murder of a prominent restaurateur. When they meet his son, they suspect he played a part in the death. Meanwhile, Chloe’s mom returns home, sending Chloe’s life into upheaval, as Lucifer learns his own dysfunctional family isn’t nearly as unique as he thought.

Find out how Chloe handles her mother’s return tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA, Scorpion, Supergirl, The Voice, and Blindspot.
