If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/30/17

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Killjoys returns to kick off its third season on Syfy. In the second season, our crew crossed paths with a mysterious green plasma that had the ability to turn people into practically unkillable super-soldiers. Khlyen’s people would soon be returning to the Quad to try to reclaim its resources, so he hatched a plan to poison the plasma supply in order to make it (and thus the Quad) useless to them. Dutch, Fancy, and D’avin joined him on this quest, but the task proved to be more complicated than he originally planned, and Khlyen was forced to sacrifice himself for the mission. Afterwards, Dutch asked Fancy and D’avin to join her in a new mission to not only win the battle but also the war. They would find and eliminate Aneela, Khlyen’s evil daughter/Dutch lookalike, and put an end to her quest for world domination. Meanwhile, Johnny, still reeling from Pawter’s murder, shot and killed Nine member Delle Seyah, the woman who murdered his love. He then decided to head off on his own for a while but was joined by the arm-gun toting Hackmod Clara.

The third season picks up shortly after these events. Dutch and her new crew are on a quest to find and wipe out the widespread Hullen hives. While she misses her friend Johnny, she understands that he needs some time away to grieve. However, Johnny is just one of many Killjoys who have recently gone AWOL, and now an oversight committee has been established to figure out what is going on. Meanwhile, Johnny is off on his own journey into the world of the Hackmods, where he meets an interesting new partner, who seems to have a target on her head.

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. The series still has that excellent blend of action, humor, drama, and mystery. While the team is currently divided, each group has its own interesting storyline, and I’m sure these will come together before the season is over. Tonight’s episode introduces two fun, potentially recurring characters that would make a great addition to the ensemble. The episode also sets up a few larger mysteries to explore over the course of the season. Friday nights are now fully loaded with a great new Syfy lineup!

On tonight’s season premiere, “Boondoggie,” Dutch and D’avin, with the help of an obnoxious black-market dealer, are on the hunt for a weapon that will draw out the Hullen; Johnny receives an SOS from Clara, leading him into the underground world of Hackmods.

Check out the season premiere tonight on Syfy at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Dark Matter, Wynonna Earp, Playing House, and The Great British Baking Show.
