If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/4/16

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

hawaiifiveo114smallLast week was the big Halloween episode for Hawaii Five-0, and there were some definite tricks and definite treats for viewers. On the treat side, seeing Jerry be so great with Grace and Charlie was a lot of fun. He went out of his way to make Halloween fun, especially for Charlie, since Danny had to work. Grace has turned into a snotty teenager, which is kind of fun to see, but I did love that she ended up dressing up and going trick-or-treating with them in the end. Another treat was seeing the gang get scared by the tricks hidden in the “haunted” house, as well as seeing Kono and Adam kicking ass and taking names as they got loose from the kidnappers – which brings me to the “tricks” part of the episode. How many times can one or both of them get taken? And are they EVER going to get some down time to just relax and enjoy being married?? I mean, really. Come on!

Tonight is the even bigger 150th episode, and it’s the return of some of the bigger names from the show’s previous 149 episodes. Michelle Borth is back as Catherine Rollins. Catherine last left Steve just before he was planning to propose, saying she was going for more relief work or whatever, but instead she was doing some undercover work. Christine Lahti is back as Doris McGarrett, Steve’s mother. Who knows what she’s been up to! And finally, Sarah Carter is back as Lynn, Steve’s latest love interest. Who knew they were still a thing?!

On tonight’s episode, “Ka makuahine a me ke keikikane (Mother and Son),” Five-0 must free McGarrett’s mother, Doris, when Catherine informs them that she was captured and is about to be executed after attempting to free Wo Fat’s imprisoned father. Also, Chin loses his appeal to have Sara’s adoption delayed, and she must move to Mexico. Emma Schlamme (Christine Lahti’s real-life daughter) is also guest starring as a younger Doris McGarrett!

See if Five-0 can save Doris and how Catherine’s return affects Steve tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, MacGyver, & Blue Bloods.

Megan’s Choice

bluebloods114smallSome people spend their Friday nights out on the town, but my idea of a good night is relaxing on the couch watching great television. Tonight that great television includes Blue Bloods and the always entertaining Regan family.

Last week we watched as everyone struggled with what was right and wrong. Frank had to deal with a beat cop who was going to the Attorney General to complain about certain procedures his captain was in charge of, because he felt they weren’t fair. While the cop wasn’t wrong, Frank wanted him to understand that some things have to be done for the greater good. Elsewhere, Erin struggled with whether or not the defendant deserved to be in jail, because while what she did was wrong, there was a medical reason for it. Lastly, Danny had to solve the murder of a young Irish girl who died trying to turn a couple f bartenders in for dealing drugs at the restaurant where they all worked. We learned a lot about how the Regan family sees things, but at the end of the day, they all agree you have to follow your instincts for what’s right and wrong.

On tonight’s episode, “Guilt by Association,” when a key witness in Danny’s case is killed just before testifying, Erin angers Danny by enlisting Anthony to help him find the killer. Also, Robert Lewis tries to force Frank to publicly support the Attorney General’s investigation of the use of excessive force by police, and Eddie and Jamie get the call for an attempted suicide.

To see how Frank handles the pressure, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver, and Hell’s Kitchen.
