If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/11/17

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 #1

Last week’s Lethal Weapon was all about the grass being greener on the other side, at least for Murtaugh. When he and Riggs were up against a Koreatown gang and a drug war, they had to work with a detective who knew more about that culture, and Murtaugh got along well with the guy, who was all about following the rules, calling/waiting for backup, etc. In the end, though, I think he realized working with Riggs has been good for him. The funniest part was when Riggs was drugged by the woman who turned out to be the killer. Riggs sober (well, at least not high on drugs…) is pretty amusing. But Riggs high on drugs? Hysterical. I loved him riding on top of the car (according to the MythBusters, that’s impossible. LOL) and saying hi to Roger, who went by going the other way. The saddest part of the episode was Trish trying to set up Riggs with a friend. I loved Riggs’s telling her that someday he’ll have to move on, but not yet.

On tonight’s episode, “Lawmen,” Murtaugh and Riggs are pitted against the LA Sheriff’s department when the killing of a Texas Ranger leads them to believe a possible misuse of power is at play. Just as the partners are sure they’ve found their culprit, the case becomes even more complicated when a dark secret is dug up from Captain Avery’s past. Malcolm-Jamal Warner (Major Crimes) and Scott William Winters (Law & Order: SVU) guest star.

To learn Captain Avery’s dark secret, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

Tonight, Comedy Central kicks off the new animated series Jeff & Some Aliens. A trio of aliens from Azuria come to Earth to find the most average human. Sammy, Jimmy, & Ted (voiced by Alessandro Minoli) soon move into the one-bedroom apartment of Jeff (Brett Gelman, Fleabag, Married), a manager at the Smoothie Prince in the mall food court. Their mission is to study the human condition and report back to their overlords as to whether or not humanity is worthy of survival or extermination. In the process, they constantly wreak havoc on Jeff’s life.

The series is a spin-off of a recurring sketch from Comedy Central’s TripTank series. Tonight’s premiere jumps right into the middle of things and doesn’t explain how Jeff came to acquire his interesting and disruptive roommates. This may have been explained in the TripTank shorts, but I haven’t seen those previous sketches. I had no idea what to expect when I sat down to watch tonight’s premiere, but I was pleasantly surprised. It has a very sophomoric sense of humor that should pair well with Workaholics, which also kicks off its final season tonight. There is a lot of gross-out humor, absurd graphic violence, and just general ridiculousness. It looks like the series has a lot of great voice talent lined up, and tonight’s episode features a fun performance by Richard Kind (Red Oaks, Gotham) playing Jeff’s father.

On tonight’s premiere, “Jeff & Some Honor Killings,” Jeff accidentally kills an alien on the planet Azuria, so he’s forced to even the score and eliminate someone on Earth in order to avoid an intergalactic conflict.

Meet the aliens tonight on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Speechless, Modern Family, black-ish, Match Game, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Frequency, Workaholics, Man Seeking Woman, and Incorporated.

Gah! Things are crazy right now on Blindspot. Last week, Patterson was missing after confronting Borden – or Nigel Thornton, as we learned was his real name! Luckily, Jane, Weller, and Tasha found her right in time. Of course Borden/Thornton escaped, only after fighting it out with Weller and handcuffing him to himself! LMAO And Roman escaped Jane by beating the crap out of her, but then ended up agreeing to meet her at a diner when they finally got ahold of him on the phone. Of course, the bad guys got there first and almost had him, but then Jane & Weller showed up and helped rescue him. The scariest part was Shepherd torturing Patterson to find out what the FBI knew about her and the plan. Patterson was killer strong and didn’t give up anything, even when Patterson kept puncturing her eardrum. Ouch! And she was able to use the book code they figured out this ep to unlock the phone Naz had given her, and they found a video of Jane during the process of getting inked…and in it was a tattoo that was no longer there on Jane’s neck. So…why’d they erase that one??

On tonight’s episode, “Droll Autumn, Unmutual Lord,” after one of the world’s most-wanted terrorists surfaces in New York for unknown reasons, the team must partner with the CIA to stop a deadly bombing.

Find out if they can stop the bombing tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Cooks vs Cons, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, black-ish, Chicago PD, & Match Game.
