If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/6/16

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!

bluebloods56smallThis time of year always brings me a mixture of emotions. On one hand, I am always excited to see the excellent episodes that May brings, but on the other hand, it’s finale time, which means my favorites disappear for another year. Tonight it’s Blue Bloods that is wrapping up its season, and I am on the edge of my seat waiting to see where they’ll leave us next.

On the last episode, Erin and Anthony struggled to find a way to get a witness in a murder trial to testify as he feared for his safety. Erin managed to trick the defendant into confessing on camera when she locked the witness up for contempt and just happened to place him in a cell next to the defendant. It was a very smart move, which reminded me why I’ve always loved her character. Elsewhere, Frank was being encouraged to go the union party for the police officers, but he knew that if he went, the men wouldn’t have fun, so he sent someone in as a representative instead, and that made everyone happy. I’m hoping that in the season finale, we’ll get some sort of movement on the relationship between Jamie and Eddie, because it’s high time we see them together!

On tonight’s episode, “Blowback,” things heat up as Frank, the mayor, Erin, and the DA’s office contend with public outrage after a grand jury doesn’t indict an NYPD officer for the controversial shooting of a teenager that was caught on video. Also, when an officer is shot in what seems like retaliation, Danny and Baez go on a manhunt for the suspect.

To find out if they can calm the storm of the public outrage, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Amazing Race and Hawaii Five-0.

hawaiifiveo56smallLast week’s Hawaii Five-0 was great for several reasons… First, the case was interesting. A computer-savvy vigilante was kidnapping people and forcing them to admit to something dark in their past – from a guy who embezzled money from elderly people’s investments to a college girl who was involved in a hit and run and killed someone five years prior. The kidnapper left the embezzler with a gun, and he killed himself. He tried to do the same with the college girl, but she fought back long enough for Five-0 to get there and take care of the guy.

That was dark, but to balance it out, there was the story line of Kamekona’s new business venture: a booze cruise. Flippa was his first mate/DJ/bartender, and Max was the ship’s doctor. Steve was there to christen the boat – SS Thong Magnet, much to everyone’s amusement, simply because Kamekona couldn’t afford to get it repainted, so the name had to stay – and then had to rush off to the case, but the other three decided to take it out on the water for its inaugural voyage. Unfortunately, once out to open sea, everything started to go wrong. There was no wind, so they were just drifting, and when they went to try to radio for help, they realized the battery for the whole kit and caboodle was dead. Flippa tried to set off the (one and only) flare, only to hit the sail and burn it up. The next thing we knew, the three of them were on what Max declared was a deserted island. They spent the rest of the day trying to pass the time, hoping to see a boat or someone to rescue them. After dark, they lay down and tried to go to sleep, only to be shocked to see fireworks going off and then tourists came through the trees. It turned out they were just outside a resort! I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilina Koko (Blood Ties),” when a woman is murdered in her home, Five-0 learns that one of their own has a deep connection to the victim’s young daughter. Elliott Gould guest stars as Gerard Hirsch’s (Willie Garson, who also guest stars) father.

Find out who has the connection to the victim’s daughter tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blue Bloods.

theamazingracesmallTonight, the four remaining Amazing Race teams battle it out to see who will compete in the final leg of the race. Last week the teams headed to Indonesia, where they had to snorkel to find their first clue, but the cylindrical clue container threw the Dancers off and put them far behind. For the Detour, the teams had to choose between canoeing for seaweed or carrying coconuts and birds across a rickety bridge. All the teams went with the latter, and it was a mad rush as there was a Double U-Turn ahead. Tyler and Korey were first to finish and U-Turned Kurt and Brodie. The Gamers arrived second, and they U-Turned Tyler and Korey so that the Frisbee guys would not be able to force anyone else into joining them for both tasks. This turned out to be enough to cause Kurt and Brodie to come in last and get eliminated.

I was really disappointed by the Gamers’ move – while it was a great move strategically, Kurt and Brodie deserved to be in the race more than Sheri & Cole, who’ve already survived twice due to non-elimination legs. At this point, I’m probably rooting for Tyler and Korey. I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the race plays out.

On tonight’s episode, “That’s Money, Honey,” the race continues in Shenzhen, China, where a high-stakes foot race marks the end of another team’s journey.

See who goes home and who goes on to the finale tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Banshee.
