If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/30/17

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!

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s S.W.A.T. was quite good. A man was working on a bomb in an apartment, when it suddenly went off accidentally. He was killed, and it was a disaster zone outside, although I did love when Street heard a cry and he and Hondo pulled some debris off a young woman. She asked about the guy’s roommate, and that made Hondo realize they were most likely dealing with more than one bomber. In the end, it turned out to be a college professor with some rather wacked-out ideals who, combined with wanting revenge against the school for trying to fire him (which ultimately didn’t work since he had tenure), pushed the “far right” ideals onto some of his students. The dead bomber was one. The other showed up at the college with a third bomb after planting one at a business that happened to be empty (leading them to realize he didn’t really want to hurt people, just get his point across about big business/the rich/whatever). He ended up in a classroom with a small group of hostages, and Hondo wound up going in and talking the guy down. The professor was watching from not too far away, wanting to see the school explode, but then some of the team got there to arrest him. When he realized that and the fact that the school wasn’t exploding, he stepped off the roof of the building he was on, hoping to be a martyr, but the team grabbed him before he fell too far.

On a side note, Buck made me sad in this episode. He’s pulling back from the team – even Hondo – and I’m worried for him. But Street continues to grow little by little, and I’m enjoying his journey. All in all, I like the chemistry and the characters and even the story lines, so while it isn’t my favorite new show of the fall, I’m happy every time it comes on.

On tonight’s episode, “Imposters,” when a series of home invasions are committed by SWAT imposters in an upscale neighborhood, Hondo and the team suspect the burglarized families are all hiding something. Also, when Deacon and Luca are assigned to protect a visiting professional hockey player who is receiving death threats, his penchant for trouble becomes a complication. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti makes a cameo as a sports agent. Retired National Hockey League player John Scott guest stars as Bobby, a professional hockey player under SWAT protection.

See what secrets the families are hiding tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, & Beat Bobby Flay.
