If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/6/18

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 #1

Thank goodness the Gabriel Hicks story line on NCIS is over. The best part of the episode had to be the creepy killer (Paul Triff) who used to live in McGee’s apartment. He was back last week, after we learned that he’d been Hicks’s cellmate. He agreed to tell them anything Hicks had told him, but only if he got to spend some time in the apartment. So McGee sent his family away, brought in a cage for Triff to stay in, and cleared the apartment of anything that pointed to McGee having a family. Triff was kind of hysterical, and in the end, he saved McGee’s life when Hicks showed up and tried to shoot him. We nearly saw the end of Fornell when Hicks kidnapped him, but Fornell got himself free in the trunk, crawled up through back seat, and started strangling him from behind until he crashed the car. They fought and Hicks nearly got the best of him, but Gibbs was there and used Fornell’s Taser and zapped him, saving the day. Of course!

On tonight’s episode, “Handle with Care,” Gibbs and the team work to clear the name of retired Marine Sergeant John Ross (Drew Carey, who in real life served in the Marine Reserves for six years) when cyanide is found in one of the hundreds of care packages he sends to active-duty Marines.

See how they clear Ross’s name tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

Tonight, the first season of ABC’s Kevin (Probably) Saves the World comes to a close. Last week Kevin felt guilty that his big prank may have been the reason the high school’s security guard, Becky, was fired. He aided her in pursuing her true passion of being an inventor by helping her build a machine that created pasta out of ham, but her demonstration of the invention at a local entrepreneur expo failed miserably. However, all had not failed because it seemed like Tyler and Becky really hit it off. Meanwhile, Amy heard strange noises in the house and assumed there was some sort of animal loose, so she fitted the house with cameras. Yvette continued to experience mishaps and had to come clean with Kevin about Dave’s disappearance. Later, Amy and Reese were watching some of their camera footage and were shocked to discover Kevin speaking with the ghostly Yvette.

How will Amy and Reese react to what they saw, and will they figure out the truth? Why is Yvette losing her powers, and can something be done to fix it? What has really happened to Dave, and will he ever return? And will Kevin ever find another member of the Righteous, let alone all of them?! While I really enjoy the week-to-week missions Kevin finds himself faced with, the overall story of the Righteous has been moving at a snail’s pace. If Kevin only manages to find one person a season, he will never complete his goal before the series ends! The series has yet to be renewed, so I really hope we get some answers and see some progress with Kevin’s mission in tonight’s season finale!

On tonight’s season finale, “The Right Thing,” Kevin struggles with the idea that his relationship with Kristin might be in jeopardy while helping a stranger honor his deceased uncle’s burial wishes. Yvette makes a drastic decision regarding her future with Kevin by involving a celestial colleague named Cindy; and Amy receives an unexpected visit that changes everything.

Catch the end of the season tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording This Is Us, LA to Vegas, The Mick, The Flash, Black Lightning, and The Detour.

Megan’s Choice

Lethal Weapon has been stepping it up in the emotional drama department lately by taking time to dig deeper into Riggs’s past with his dad and the fact that his father is going to get out of prison sooner than later. Riggs isn’t handing that possibility very well, and that’s why he stopped seeing Molly. He was worried they’d get hurt because of him, and he really does love Molly and her son. I’m hopeful that Riggs will be able to overcome this hurdle and finally find happiness.

Riggs isn’t the only one struggling with relationship issues lately, because Murtaugh and Trish are fighting over his insistence to continue doing dangerous things. Last episode Trish actually ran over his motorcycle, and that definitely didn’t go over well. I’m concerned that they are both so stubborn that neither of them will compromise before it’s too late.

On tonight’s episode, “The Odd Couple,” after a fatal end to an argument on a construction site, the squad works to untangle facts about the incident. Meanwhile, Riggs struggles to rekindle his relationship with Molly, Trish’s job is on the line as she tries to close a big deal at work, and Murtaugh gets one last chance to make it right at home.

To find out if Riggs can make things right with Molly and if Murtaugh can save his marriage, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, NCIS, NCIS: New Orleans, Bull, and Chicago Med.

Jenny’s Choice #2

Last week’s Chicago Med was crazy. Dr. Manning and Maggie’s paramedic love interest Barry witnessed a gang drive-by and then as they were working on the victim, the shooters came around again. He knocked her to the ground, where she hit her head on the parked car, and then he stood up to shoot back at the shooters. He was hit in the knee, and we found out later that he shot an innocent bystander. He’d have been okay since it was an accident and he had a permit, but it turned out that he’d changed his name a long time ago and didn’t disclose that fact when he got his permit, so he was arrested. Needless to say, Maggie was heartbroken that he once again had lied to her and had been doing so for years. Then there was the 14-year-old young girl who was in the ER with her much, much older preacher husband. Turned out she had been pregnant and had a miscarriage, but something didn’t get taken care of well enough after and was causing her to bleed. Dr. Manning tried to go against her husband’s wishes when they figured out the girl also had cancer, but it was Dr. Halstead who did an end run around him sneakily and told the girl she could legally emancipate herself medically since she was married and considered adult enough. The girl decided she would have a hysterectomy to take care of any current or future cancer, and when the husband learned about it, he got irate, but it hopefully meant the girl would be free of him. It was a creepy story.

And then there was Dr. Reese, who is acting more and more reckless as time goes by. A man came into the ER, adamant that he be admitted to the psych ward because he kept having dreams and fantasies of stabbing his pregnant wife. Dr. Charles agreed to admit him, but when Dr. Reese brought up the idea of confronting his fears, Dr. Charles said it was too dangerous. Unfortunately, Dr. Reese went behind his back and locked herself in the room with the man and a knife, telling him to imagine that she was his wife and to stab her. He couldn’t bring himself to do it, which she told him was a good thing. I was confused about why he just decided that was good enough and then left the hospital like he had no more worries, but whatever. The biggest thing was how mad Dr. Charles was at Dr. Reese. She really is getting more and more reckless and acting like she knows everything there is to know about psychiatry now. It’s irritating! And finally, there was Dr. Rhodes, who is kind of sowing his wild oats after Robin’s departure. Unfortunately, he hooked up with a woman and after learning she’d had some chest pains earlier in the day, he brought her to the hospital. Turned out she was not only married but also taking cocaine. She did have some heart problems, but poor Dr. Rhodes. Of course, then he made plans to hook up with another woman as he left the hospital, so… LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Folie À Deux,” after a neighbor is stabbed, Dr. Choi enlists April’s help to figure out who is the real cause of the incident. Dr. Bekker’s and Dr. Rhodes’s expertise is put to the test when Noah misdiagnoses a patient. Dr. Charles is put in an uncomfortable position when Dr. Reese’s estranged father (guest star Michel Gill) comes to him as a patient without her knowledge. Meanwhile, Dr. Manning rushes to save a baby with whooping cough.

See if the doctors can save their patients tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Lethal Weapon, LA to Vegas, Chopped, & NCIS: New Orleans.
