If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/31/16

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!

rushhour331smallNot all movies translate well into TV shows, but they keep putting them out. One such new show is tonight’s premiere of Rush Hour, starring Justin Hires (TripTank, Key and Peele) as maverick Detective Carter of the LAPD and Jon Foo as by-the-book Detective Lee from Hong Kong. In the movie, Det. Lee comes to the US to search for a missing young girl. In the show, he comes over to avenge his sister’s alleged death and learn more about her connection to a Chinese organized crime ring. Just like in the movie, Carter is a wisecracking cop who plays by his own rules and Lee is a reserved, honorable master martial artist with lightning-fast moves. Joining them is Wendie Malick (Hot in Cleveland, Just Shoot Me), who plays Carter’s boss, Captain Cole; Aimee Garcia (Dexter, Vegas, Trauma), who plays Sergeant “Didi” Diaz, Carter’s friend & former partner; and Page Kennedy (Backstrom, Weeds), a low-level offender who runs with a tough crowd but is an informant for Carter…and his cousin.

I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and I really enjoyed it. It’s not perfect, but I like the characters and their chemistry, and I like the story line that we learn in the first episode. The action is fun too, just like the movie. If you enjoy this type of show, you should definitely give it a shot!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” cultures clash and tempers flare when Detective Lee, a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police detective, is paired with maverick LAPD Detective Carter in Los Angeles to investigate the theft of Chinese artifacts.

Meet Detectives Lee and Carter tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, Cooks vs Cons, 2 Broke Girls, & Beat Bobby Flay.

archer331smallTonight, FX’s animated spy series, Archer, returns to kick off its seventh season! Last season ended with the gang participating in a Fantastic Voyage-style adventure on behalf of the CIA. But, as usual, things went horribly wrong when their miniaturized ship returned to normal size while still inside Dr. Kovac. This was the final straw for the CIA, who fired and blacklisted the group. The episode ended with the gang stranded in the desert with a once-again-crippled Ray dying in a wheelbarrow, as the group tried to figure out what they would do next for money.

For the past couple of years, this show has done a great job of re-inventing itself each season, finding some new location and vocation for the group. I like how they’ve been doing a self-contained story each season, so that if the show didn’t return, it would still feel like it had proper closure. So I’m really looking forward to seeing what crazy arc the writers have cooked up for Archer and the crew this season and where they will be headed this season!

On tonight’s episode, “The Figgis Agency,” Archer breaks into a mansion to repair a Hollywood starlet’s honor.

To see how Archer plans to make that happen, tune in to FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces, Rush Hour, Grey’s Anatomy, The Catch, You, Me and the Apocalypse, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The 100, and 60 Days In.

greysanatomy331smallLast week’s Grey’s Anatomy left us with a few new developments to take in, including Meredith finally agreeing to go on a date with the hot Army doctor. Unfortunately, after being part of a ground-breaking triple organ transplant, she’d been up for over 16 hours and didn’t feel like she could go, so instead he told her he’d drive her home. It was really cute, because when they got into her driveway, they were chowing down on some take-out food and talking about surgeries. She said she should go in but instead started talking more about medicine. I think it’s great that Meredith is branching out, and I’m glad in the end Alex supported her decision.

We also watched as April and Jackson fought about the baby and how she didn’t tell him about it. April was furious at Arizona for telling him, rightfully so. It wasn’t her place to do it. Jackson was upset and yelled at April in the hospital, even saying he wanted nothing to do with her. Later in the episode, he came to apologize, but when April started explaining things, he brought up the fact she was probably waiting until it was too late to do anything about it to tell him. She simply stated that he knew that wasn’t an option for her. April doesn’t believe in abortion, and she wasn’t going to let Jackson push her around because she stated that the baby is in her body for now and she’ll make the decisions. While I believe that a dad should be involved, I can also see where April is coming from, and I seriously hope for her sake this time, it’s a happy ending.

On tonight’s episode, “When It Hurts So Bad,” Meredith takes a step forward with Will but quickly regrets it; Maggie senses a disconnection with Andrew; and Amelia reevaluates her relationship with Owen. Meanwhile, Catherine comes into town and really shakes things up with April and Jackson.

Find out what issues Catherine brings into town with her tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Rush Hour, Scandal, The Catch, and Shades of Blue.
