If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/14/16

scorpion1114smallLast week’s Scorpion was pretty fun. It was election day, and the FBI showed up and asked for Scorpion’s help…but Walter was forced to stay back (and keep an eye on Ralph) because his immigration status was under suspicion. Needless to say, he didn’t like that one bit. The rest of the team figured out that someone had hacked into and was screwing with the votes. In the end, Walt and Ralph escaped their FBI babysitter and helped the team figure out it was people from the Chinese embassy. With the US election in chaos and no president-elect called because of it, it would benefit the Chinese. Toby was great in this one, from his one-liners to how he took over the TV interview and helped talk down the Chinese.

On a personal note, things were all over the map for them all. It seems like Paige and Tim are getting closer (*gag*), so much so that he’s now introduced both her and Ralph to his parents. Ralph told Paige that her happiness is most important, so it’s fine with him if Tim becomes his stepfather, even though he wants Walter to be it instead. But with the rest of the team throwing relationship stats at her about meeting the parents being a precursor to an engagement, Paige seemed like she was freaking out a little. (Thank goodness. Maybe that relationship will be over soon!) And on a very sad note, Happy had to tell Toby that she wasn’t pregnant after all, that her blood test had been a false positive. She broke down, nearly destroying the awesome mechanical crib she’d built, telling him she was looking forward to waiting for her child after school, unlike when she grew up in the orphanage and had no one waiting for her. Toby promised her that they would have that family. She tried to tell Toby she wanted some alone time, but when he went to walk away, he shocked her by turning and getting down on one knee. Since the President of the United States had been so thankful that he’d gotten Walter’s citizenship approved, Happy was free and clear to say yes to the proposal, knowing she and Walt could get a divorce. So among the sadness was a happiness and relief for them both.

On tonight’s episode, “Sly and the Family Stone,” when Team Scorpion travels to Ireland for Megan’s one-year memorial, Walter discovers that a nearby lake’s natural disaster has created a poisonous cloud that could kill everyone in the village. Also, Cabe and Toby try to alleviate the tension between Tim and Walter.

See how Team Scorpion saves the village tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Kevin Can Wait, Man With a Plan, 2 Broke Girls, Cake Wars, & Conviction.

supergirl1114smallLast week on Supergirl, Kara tried to help Mon-El assimilate into Earth society by getting him an internship at CatCo under the name of Mike Matthews…and a pair of glasses to help hide his identity should he want to do superhero-y stuff sometime in the future. However, Kara quickly realized that teaching him to be human wasn’t going to be easy. He didn’t understand why he couldn’t just use his powers in front of the humans because, after all, it made things so much easier. Meanwhile, Alex started to question her sexual identity after Maggie accused her of flirting with her; James was sick of always being the sidekick and decided to play vigilante in a mask; and Lena asked Kara to get Supergirl to show up at her charity ball in order to trap a gang that had been terrorizing the city using alien technology provided by Cadmus. In the end we discovered that the leader of the gang was actually Lena’s mother.

I really enjoyed the humor of last week’s episode. The show’s much lighter tone is what makes this series so much fun. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens next. Does Lena know the truth about her mother? Is she really evil like the rest of the Luthors and just pretending to be a friend to Kara? Will James continue to pursue his own superhero exploits? How will Alex’s revelation change her personal life? And how will Kara need to alter her methods in order to mentor Mon-El?

On tonight’s episode, “Changing,” the Guardian makes his debut in National City to lend a hand after a parasite alien drains Supergirl of her power; at the same time, Mon-El considers a less-than-desirable career change; and Alex struggles with a new reality.

Find out how the Guardian helps Supergirl tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Man With a Plan, Timeless, Gotham, Lucifer, Jane the Virgin, and People of Earth.

Megan’s Choice

lucifer1114smallWhat isn’t there to love about Lucifer? Honestly, I’m not sure, because I love everything about this show. It’s witty, funny, and also has some great character development. A couple episodes ago, Lucifer revealed his true face to his therapist, and she was terrified. She wasn’t ready for his true demon form. I was pleased to see that the good doctor came around last week when it came to being friends with Maze again, even though she was very upset about Maze being a demon.

Last week, we also watched as Lucifer decided to shadow Dan so that he could become a more likeable person, but it wasn’t working for him. Lucifer is a great person overall, but he isn’t going to fix the issues he has by acting like Dan…who obviously has his own issues. I also feel like Lucifer and Chloe are meant to be together and that’s why he’s trying so hard to be a better man. Hopefully, over the next few episodes, we’ll see some growth towards them becoming a couple or at least have Lucifer confide a bit more to Chloe, because I believe she may actually understand more than he thinks.

On tonight’s episode, “Trip to Stabby Town,” after discovering that Azrael’s blade has been stolen by a human, Lucifer quickly connects it with a string of violent stabbings revolving around a local yoga studio. While Chloe investigates the murders, Lucifer enlists Ella’s help in locating the sword to stop the carnage.

Find out if Lucifer can yet again save the day tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Man With a Plan, Kevin Can Wait, Chopped, Scorpion, The Voice, and Timeless.
