If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/8/16

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!

Kyle’s Choice

banshee48smallLast week, Banshee returned to kick off its fourth and final season on Cinemax. In an unusual move, the series took an 18-month time jump, and in that period, Lucas had become a recluse, squatting in a remote cabin belonging to Kai Proctor! Lucas was forced to come out of seclusion, clean up, and reenter society when Rebecca’s dead body washed ashore. After Sheriff Brock gave Lucas a tour of the newly-renovated police station, he told him that he and Kai Proctor – who is now the mayor – were both suspects. Lucas decided to look into who really killed Rebecca, which was going to be a tough task – while he was never really the sheriff, at least in the past he would have had the department resources to help him out on things like this. Meanwhile Carrie was having her own issues – her husband died at the end of last season, and shortly afterwards Social Services took away her children, and now she has to deal with court-mandated therapy sessions in order to get them back. We also learned that reformed neo-Nazi Kurt Bunker was still working for the Banshee PD and that he was secretly sleeping with his brother’s wife. And finally, we still don’t know where Job ended up after he was taken in last season’s finale.

While Lucas fears that Job may have been killed, I think that’s highly unlikely, and with only 7 episodes left, I hope he reappears soon, as he is my favorite character! Last week was a little slow of a start to the season, but I’m really looking forward to seeing how things ramp up, learning who killed Rebecca, and seeing what kind of explosive, over-the-top action sequences the show has planned!

On tonight’s episode, “The Burden of Beauty,” Carrie turns vigilante, while Brock suspects Lucas in the serial killings.

Find out what Brock does about his suspicions tonight on Cinemax at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, Grimm, Sleepy Hollow, Wynonna Earp, and Childrens Hospital.

Jenny’s Choice

hawaiifiveo48smallI love stories about Grover on Hawaii Five-0, although I’m still completely miffed that they dropped the ball on the story where he basically kidnapped and assaulted his former partner, Clay, then called the police on Clay and himself. We never heard one whit about it after. Even if they somehow, convolutedly, got any charges against him dropped, we should have heard about it. We should have learned the outcome of that. That misstep aside, I’ve enjoyed this season of the show. Last week was really sad but had an outcome that was sweet and beautiful. Two men were rescued from the ocean – well, one was rescued, while the other had unfortunately died – and they learned that they’d been two of many men on a slave trade operating aboard an illegal fishing vessel. The men had escaped and jumped ship, but the dead man had been shot and died of complications from that and dehydration. In the end, the man was reunited with his wife and young daughter, who he had never met, since his wife was pregnant when he went away.

A fun story line was Danny and his kids, who were having a fun day out when Danny’s car was stolen. So he and the kids got onto the bus, but when they saw the bad guys drive away from a crime in the car, he convinced the bus driver to follow them. Unfortunately, they got caught and Danny was left to keep the passengers safe and hunt down the bad guys before they could kill him. He met up with a hunter and asked for his gun, but he did have a compound bow or whatever, and Danny was able to use it to wound one man and kill the other.

On tonight’s episode, “Malama ka Po’e (Care for One’s People),” a case from 15 years ago forces Grover to take his family on the run when a dangerous mob boss tracks him down to seek revenge. Mark Valley guest stars.

See what happens when Grover and his family go on the run tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, Grimm, Hell’s Kitchen, Blue Bloods, Motive, & Wynonna Earp.
 

Megan’s Choice

sleepyhollow48smallTonight is the season finale of Sleepy Hollow , and I’m not sure I’m ready for it. Last week’s episode was full of twists and turns as they raced to repair Pandora’s box in time to stop the god from getting full power. In order to repair the box, Abbie and Crane had to travel to the catacombs, where Crane was surprised to find Betsy Ross in a state of stasis, where she had been for centuries. Betsy still believed it was centuries away, and Crane had to explain what time it actually was. I am hoping we get to see these two together romantically after this reunion. Speaking of reunions, Jenny and Abbie’s father has been coming around a lot, but last week we learned that he knew about the monsters and all the supernatural. Jenny was devastated when Joe was turned into Wendigo by the Hidden One as punishment to her. This lead to Joe being unstoppable and almost killing Jenny’s father, so she shot Joe. I cried. We finally got a softer, loving side of Jenny, and they killed the love of her life. I hope it’s all worth it tonight if they manage to stop the Hidden One.

On tonight’s episode, “Ragnarok,” after a startling discovery, Abbie and Crane realize what they must do in order to make Pandora’s box complete again. Meanwhile, the team works tirelessly to stop the Hidden One, before he destroys all of humanity. Can the Witnesses succeed with the fate of the world in their hands once again?

To find out if they can save the world, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Amazing Race, Grimm, Hawaii Five-0, and Blue Bloods.
