If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/28/18

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!

In his first full-time TV gig since Scrubs, Zach Braff is back as Alex Schuman, a married father of two who quits his prominent job to pursue his dream of his own podcast company. Unfortunately, it’s not going to be as easy as he thinks. Thankfully, he has the support of his wife Rooni (Tiya Sircar, who played the Vicky/Real Eleanor/Denise on The Good Place) and kids Ben (Elisha Henig, who has guest starred in a good number of shows) and Soraya (newcomer Audyssie James. Joining Alex at his new podcast company are his cousin Eddie (Michael Imperioli, The Sopranos & more) and former producer Deirdre (relative newcomer Hillary Anne Matthews).

The previews for this seem adorable, and I am so excited for Zach Braff’s return to television. Tiya Sircar was a scene stealer on The Good Place, so I’m hopeful she’ll be fun to watch as Alex’s wife. The show is based on Alex Blumberg’s successful podcast “StartUp,” and Blumberg and Braff also service as executive producers, with Braff also playing a directorial role.

On tonight’s episode, “The Unfair Advantage,” with the help of wife Rooni and their children, Alex Schuman quits his prominent job to start his own podcast company telling real stories that matter. He hires his cousin Eddie and former producer, Deirdre, to help achieve his dream. Meanwhile, Ben performs magic at the school talent show which teaches Alex an important lesson about his future.

Meet Alex and his family tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, & Criminal Minds.

I was starting to get concerned a few weeks ago that Criminal Minds was going to spend a long time on the story arc of Barnes trying to dismantle the BAU, but thankfully the team managed to prove how important they are. The team is now safe, and Barnes has been put on notice to leave them alone. I was incredibly happy to see the unit back together the way it should be, and now we can continue the season with intense cases that still give me chills after all these seasons.

Like last week’s episode with the creepy killer clown. A set of brothers were robbing people, but the driver (the non-violent family man who just wanted to make enough money to get himself and his wife and son to Florida) didn’t know his brother was killing the men (substitute for their father) in the houses he was robbing. It came down to a knock-down, drag-out fight that nearly had the “family man” brother killing the other, but thankfully the team arrived in time to stop him from making that mistake. He still was going away on accessory for murder, but hopefully the judge would give him some leniency since he didn’t know what his brother was actually doing.

On tonight’s episode, “The Dance of Love,” the BAU travels to Chicago to investigate an unsub who leaves red roses on each victim. Also, Rossi gets an unexpected visit from his ex-wife, Krystall Richards. Gail O’Grady guest stars.

To see what twisted case Chicago brings and whether or not they’ll mention Morgan, who is from Chicago, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Alex Inc., The Voice, Guy’s Grocery Games, and SEAL Team.
