If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/2/16

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!

John C. McGinley, Deborah Baker Jr.Tonight, the new horror-comedy series Stan Against Evil premieres on IFC. Sheriff Stan Miller (John C. McGinley, Scrubs, Ground Floor) is forced into retirement after an uncontrolled outburst. However, a plague of angry demons falls upon the small New Hampshire town, which was built on a 17th century witch-burning site. So he begrudgingly teams up with his young replacement, Evie Barret (Janet Varney, You’re the Worst) to keep the evil forces at bay. The series is written by comedian Dana Gould and also stars Nate Mooney (American Odyssey) and Deborah Baker Jr.

I haven’t seen this series yet, but I really like John C. McGinley, who is perfect for this kind of gruff, bitter-guy role. And based on the promos, it looks like this series will contain that same fun mix of horror and comedy that makes shows like Ash vs Evil Dead so entertaining. I can’t wait to check out tonight’s special one-hour premiere.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dig Me Up Dig Me Down; Know, Know, Know Your Goat,” a disgraced small-town sheriff teams with his replacement to battle demons. Then Stan’s daughter brings home a goat that is really an ancient hircine demon.

Catch the one-hour series premiere tonight on IFC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Empire, Arrow, Frequency, Worst Cooks in America, You’re the Worst, Younger, and Impastor.

criminalminds112smallI’m enjoying this season of Criminal Minds. While I really liked Hotch, I’m not really missing him. I thought I would, especially after losing Morgan at the end of last season, but with the addition of Luke Alvez (played by the very sexy Adam Rodriguez) and the return of Emily Prentiss, I’ve been pretty happy so far – especially with the fun play between Luke and Garcia. I do hope the powers that be don’t set us up to ship them like they did Morgan and Garcia and then yank it out from under us without fanfare. Grr.

Last week, the team headed back to the Appalachian Trail when body parts were found by the local sheriff. It was a pretty gruesome and sad case, where one mentally slow brother was covering for his psycho brother. They’d had a pretty horrific childhood, with an abusive and sick-in-the-head father, and it clearly affected them both. I couldn’t help but feel bad for the one brother and hoped that he would get the help he needed. Also, Garcia found out Roxy was Luke’s dog, not his girlfriend. I’m loving their interactions so far, so I hope we get even more of it!

On tonight’s episode, “The Anti-Terrorism Squad,” the BAU investigates if bullying may be the link between two high school students who are the sole survivors after both of their families are killed.

See if the team can figure out why the two families were killed tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Law & Order: SVU, Property Brothers, Worst Cooks in America, Chicago PD, & That Awkward Game Show.

Megan’s Choice

codeblack112smallCode Black defies the rules of so many other television dramas, in the sense that no character is safe – anyone can be killed off at any time. That is one of the biggest reasons I love this show, because you never know what’s going to happen.

This season alone, we already have Mike in a coma, and last episode Charlotte was shot and killed. I was shocked when they killed her off, because her character was already becoming a vital member of the team, but it definitely surprised us all. We did get a little bit of good news last week when Angus made them pull Mike off the ventilator and proved everyone wrong when Mike actually started breathing by himself. I cried. What a fantastic moment.

On tonight’s episode, “Landslide,” the Angels Memorial doctors treat victims caught in a landslide, and a group of children come in from a camping trip with measles, putting the entire ER at risk.

Find out if they can contain the outbreak before it’s too late tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Chicago PD, Law & Order: SVU, and Blindspot.
