If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/20/17

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!

Tonight, Bates Motel returns for the start of its fifth and final season on A&E. As the fourth season came to a close, Norman had gone full-on Psycho, blocking up the furnace vents in order to try to kill himself and his mother via carbon monoxide. Romero happened to stop by the house shortly afterwards and tried to save them, but it was too late for Norma. Norman had left a suicide note from Norma, but Romero figured out what must have really happened. He had a gun ready and was planning to kill Norman but was arrested for perjury, which delayed those plans. After the funeral, Norman dug up his mother’s body and brought it back home, but he still seemed confused and hadn’t really accepted that Norma is actually dead.

As we head into the final 10 episodes of the series, I’m curious to see what stories the writers have left to tell. We’re almost to the point in Norman’s journey that took place in the original Psycho film. Are we building to that moment? Will they re-create the events of the film in the series? Will Dylan learn about his mother’s death, and if so, how will he react and will he return home? Will Romero get his revenge on Norman, or will he ultimately become one of his latest victims? I’m looking forward to seeing how this creepy final chapter plays out.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dark Paradise,” a troubling discovery surfaces and Dylan and Emma get a surprise guest.

Check out the beginning of the end tonight on A&E at 10/9c.

And in case you need a refresher going into the final season, A&E will be airing a 30-minute “Quickie Catchup” before tonight’s premiere, at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, Timeless, APB, Jane the Virgin, Humans, and Beyond.

Last week’s episode of Scorpion was a smorgasbord of emotions, and I loved every minute of it. Sly and Walter competed in a chess tournament in order to save a foreign woman who was spying for the US. Things were touch and go there for a bit, especially with Sly and Walter competing over chess. They are definitely sore losers, but it all worked out in the end. Unfortunately for Happy, it didn’t work out for her dad, because he ended up going to jail, even though Happy tried her hardest to keep him out of there. I teared up when he went in to the jail and Happy just fell apart, because you never see her that emotional. This is going to be quite the journey for her over the next little bit. On another note, I’m really hoping we see some more moments with Walter and Paige leading us to Tim out of the picture for good and those two a couple.

On tonight’s episode, “Dirty Seeds, Done Dirt Cheap,” when a simple mission to protect a vital seed bank goes awry, Team Scorpion must save Happy, Sylvester, and Cabe, who begin suffering from life-threatening, fear-based hallucinations.

To find out if the team can save them in time, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Man With a Plan, Kevin Can Wait, 24: Legacy, American Ninja Warrior, and APB.
