If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/27/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice

greatindoors1027smallI love fish-out-of-water comedies, and I think I’m going to love CBS’s latest, The Great Indoors. Joel McHale (Community & The Soup) stars as Jack, a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine. He is used to traveling the world, living an “outdoorsy” life while writing up his adventures for the magazine. But when his boss, Roland (Stephen Fry!), announces that the magazine is moving to web-only, Jack has to become an office bee when Roland assigns him to supervise their online team of “journalists.” These millennials are all the opposite of Jack – used to doing everything indoors and online, where their idea of observing nature is watching a YouTube video of a bear family enjoying a swimming pool in someone’s backyard.

It should be a lot of fun watching them all try to get the other(s) to open their minds, get out of their comfort zones, and show that just because something is different, it doesn’t mean it’s bad. The show also stars Susannah Fielding, Chris Williams, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Christine Ko, & Shaun Brown.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Joel McHale stars as Jack, a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine who must adapt to the times when he becomes the new desk-bound boss to a group of millennials in the digital department of the publication. Amy Hill, Jason Boegh, Will Herndon, & Deborah Baker, Jr. guest star.

Meet Jack and the rest of the team tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Rosewood, The Good Place, Chicago Med, Chopped, The Almost Impossible Game Show, Beat Bobby Flay, Impractical Jokers, & Pure Genius.

lifeinpieces1027smallTonight, Life in Pieces returns to CBS to kick off its second season. As the first season ended, the series dropped a lot of bombshells. Tommy’s attempt to propose to Colleen kept getting interrupted by other family announcements. First Joan and John got re-engaged after being secretly divorced for decades (long enough to make Greg a bastard, which his siblings had a field day with). The interruptions continued with Greg announcing that he lost his job, followed by teenager Tyler announcing he and Clementine were married. And so Tommy finally just proposed to Colleen in his parents’ bathroom.

I enjoyed the first season of CBS’s version of Modern Family. I really like the four short, fun vignettes format of each episode. I’m looking forward to seeing how all the events in the first season cliffhanger play out and affect the relationships and characters in this new season.

On tonight’s premiere, “Annulled Roommate Pill Shower,” Heather and Tim recruit Clementine’s eccentric folks in an effort to get Clementine and Tyler to annul their marriage; Tommy moves in with Colleen; John takes the wrong dose of his daily pill; and Jen and Greg keep a secret from the family. Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, & Fortune Feimster guest star.

Catch up with the family tonight on CBS at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, The Great Indoors, Pure Genius, Superstore, The Good Place, The Blacklist, Pitch, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and 60 Days In.

Megan’s Choice

greysanatomy1027smallLast week, Grey’s Anatomy had me riding on the emotional rollercoaster watching as Amelia thought she was pregnant and she was pretty happy about it until she confessed that the last time she was pregnant, the father passed away. That left us all wondering who was the father and when was she pregnant… Also on that episode, we watched as Alex diagnosed the rare disease of a clinic patient but gave the credit to Webber because he said he didn’t need the attention. That seemed shocking because Alex has always been one to take credit for a case gone well. I guess the whole issue with his license being under review has made him more cautious.

On tonight’s episode, “Roar,” a familiar face returns to Grey Sloan, throwing many of the doctors for a loop. With Catherine putting on the pressure, Bailey has to make a decision about Alex while a tough ER case makes Amelia’s bad day even worse. Debbie Allen and Ravi Patel guest star.

To find out what decision Bailey makes regarding Alex, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Rosewood, Superstore, The Good Place, The Great Indoors, Chicago Med, Pure Genius, and Chopped.
