If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/22/17

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!

Megan’s Choice

When I found out that Bones was ending last season, I was distraught because I wouldn’t be getting my weekly David Boreanaz fix, but thankfully he is now starring in SEAL Team, and he is sexier than ever. His character is, as always, a brooding leading man with secrets, but now he’s in the Special Forces for Navy SEALs and his job is to travel around the world saving people. The cast as a whole really work well together, and I’m very interested to watch the development of the show going forward.

Last week, the team had to rescue an undercover CIA operative in Brazil after she was kidnapped by radical terrorists. They didn’t know she was CIA, so they only asked for a “small” amount of money, but the team knew she’d break under interrogation. She did, and by the time the team got to Brazil, the kidnappers had killed her two Brazilian companions and then left and taken her to Paraguay. They were told to let the Paraguay military rescue her, but when that failed, Jason came up with a plan that fortunately worked and they rescued her safely. Back at home, Jason and Alana spent some time together, and he finally told her about Nate’s burner phone, which led to him telling her about a couple of missions, including the one he just got home from. Maybe they can begin to heal as a couple finally, now that he’s opening up some and not keeping it bottled up.

The were two other story lines worth noting. Ray and his wife, who’d been keeping from him the fact that they were having some major financial problems. She didn’t want to worry him, claiming they were minor, but when he got home from the mission, he realized how bad it really was when he saw her slumped tiredly among a huge pile of paperwork, many of the bills on pink paper. The second was Clay. He was going through SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) training, the advanced version of the interrogation training. It was brutal, but by thinking of his time as a kid with his father and then of him and Brian at the beach, he got through it, finally being “rescued” by Jason and the team, which meant he’s completed his Tier One Operative training. Jason even stood there in front of him and shook his hand, showing the respect Clay had finally earned.

On tonight’s episode, “The Exchange,” Jason and the SEAL team have mixed feelings when they are tasked with bringing home an American soldier who was captured after deserting, in exchange for detainees in Gitmo.

To find out if the team can come together for the task at hand, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, The Wall, and Iron Chef Showdown.
