If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/9/17

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!

On last week’s episode of The Orville, the ship was docked for repairs, so Dr. Finn was taking her two sons for a vacation on a resort planet. Isaac was along for the ride as her pilot and to study Dr. Finn and her family to learn more about human nature. However, their shuttle hit some turbulence and they crash-landed on an uncharted moon far away from any help. Upon landing, Dr. Finn was separated from the others and was taken captive by a hermit who was living in a bunker where he was safe from the chemical weapon that has poisoned the water supply and had wiped out most of the food supply. Meanwhile, Isaac had to try to discipline the unruly boys while also trying to locate Dr. Finn and fix the shuttle in order to contact the Orville for help. And to make matters worse, the natives were circling, looking at the boys as a new food supply.

I am really enjoying this series. I like how they’ve managed to tackle some pretty serious topics but also manage to explain both sides and don’t get really preachy about one point of view or another. I was kind of surprised to see Isaac showing one of Dr. Finn’s young boys how to use a gun to kill the approaching aliens! The series has also done an excellent job at featuring different characters each week, giving them their own story lines. I haven’t been watching Star Trek Discovery due to CBS putting it behind their All Access paywall, but The Orville has certainly filled the Star Trek void for me.

On tonight’s episode, “Cupid’s Dagger,” the Orville is called to mediate a peace treaty between two warring cultures, but tensions run even higher between Ed and Kelly when a familiar face boards the ship. Meanwhile Yaphit declares his love for Dr. Finn with surprising results.

Find out who boards the ship and how Dr. Finn reacts tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Gotham, Nathan for You, Van Helsing, Ghost Wars, and Chrisley Knows Best.

Megan’s Choice

When I found out that Shemar Moore was coming back to our television screens as the star of the new drama, S.W.A.T., I was overjoyed. Nothing sexier than Shemar Moore running around saving people and being badass.

Last week’s episode introduced us to the team, and we saw Hondo (Shemar Moore) be promoted to team leader after the previous team leader accidentally shot an unarmed boy. It was a bogus situation, and Hondo was not the one in line for the promotion, but the powers that be wanted him there because he’s black and they are hoping it will appease the people who were so upset. I think it will all work out for the best, but it’s going to take time for everyone to adjust to the new roles.

On tonight’s episode, “Cuchillo,” Hondo and the SWAT team spread out across Los Angeles in pursuit of four escaped convicts, including a violent criminal Jessica helped bring to justice, before department rival Mumford and his team beat them to the collars. Also, Hondo’s new role as team leader is called into question when Street displays a flagrant disregard for SWAT protocol.

Find out if Hondo can get Street under control tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Young Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory, Chopped, and Grey’s Anatomy.
