If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/10/18

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!

Tonight, Riverdale returns to The CW to kick off the show’s third season. A lot happened last season, especially with the expanded 22-episode season! Betty discovered that her father was the real Black Hood – a serial killer that had been terrorizing the town – though there had also been a second copycat who had been hired by Hiram Lodge. Fred ran for mayor, and even though he had Veronica’s help to try to beat her mother, Hermione ultimately won the election. Meanwhile, Archie was in a political race of his own – he ran for student body president and won. Meanwhile, Veronica discovered his father’s plans to own the entire south side of town, and so she purchased the Whyte Wyrn before he had a chance to do so. She then traded the bar to her father in exchange for Pop’s Diner. Archie had had enough of Hiram and confronted him in his home at knife point, calling him out on all the people he had had a hand in murdering. However, it was all empty threats with Archie – he had no proof and didn’t even think to wear a wire to the confrontation. The next day at school, Jughead asked Betty to join the Serpents, proving that what her father had done hadn’t affected their relationship. Then, Archie was sworn in as class president, but before he could do anything, he was arrested for murder – Hiram had set him up!

I’m looking forward to seeing what happens this season. Will the teens once again find themselves embroiled in another murder mystery? Or else what other kind of evil or misfortune will befall the town of Riverdale this year? And what about Archie – how quickly will he be able to prove his innocence and get out of prison? Will he try to get revenge on Hiram afterwards? It should be another exciting season with lots of soapy twists and turns.

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I had the chance to speak with some of the cast about the upcoming season. You can check out my press room videos at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “Labor Day,” Archie makes a surprising request about how he wants to spend his final days of summer; Betty must deal with her problems head-on after a heated confrontation with Alice and Polly; Veronica pleads with Hiram to help Archie.

See if Archie gets the help he needs tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, American Housewife, Modern Family, Single Parents, A Million Little Things, Survivor, All American, and American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

I mentioned last time I covered the show that American Horror Story is not one of my must-see shows every season. The strange nature of re-establishing the setting and supernatural connotation of the story each year makes it sort of “hit or miss” for me. So far, this season’s iteration AHS: Apocalypse has been stellar! Last week they upped the ante by going full on crossover with the Coven version of the show, with the witches from New Orleans showing up at Outpost Three to recover one of their lost sisters. Mallory & Dinah Stevens are apparently both witches. And that works out well for them, considering they were killed at the end of the episode before.

But when the New Orleans witches showed up, they resurrected them. There was a confrontation with Michael Langdon, the mystery man, who was testing to see who “deserved” to make it to the ten-year sanctuary he had told them about. The fact the witches recognized him was the cue that sent us right into a flashback to see that Langdon was raised by a crazy old Satanist woman (played by Kathy Bates). Not only that, he had astounding warlock powers that drew the attention of an enclave of male magic doers. When he plowed through their tests with powers greater than any of their “master” warlocks, they decided he was the “Male Supreme.” – a male alpha Warlock destined to destroy all the witches, even though women are usually much more powerful with magic.

The warlocks brought Michael to be tested by a council of witches, but the women laughed off the men’s attempt to put forth their champion. They brought up how badly it went last time anyone tried to test as a Supreme, when a young girl in Coven was lost to hell. While the elder warlocks and witches debated, Michael flew off to the hotel from the season Hotel, where he rescued Queenie, a witch who had been trapped there for 40,000 years in her experience of time. He then rescued Madison Montgomery from Hell and brought them back to the place all the other witches and warlocks were. This made head witch Cordelia swoon, leaving us demanding to know what happens next!

On tonight’s episode, “Boy Wonder,” the fate of the world is left in Cordelia’s hands.

Find out how Cordelia handles it tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I got drawn back into It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, so I’ll also be watching that and South Park.

I find the new show A Million Little Things incredibly relevant and heart-wrenching. Suicide is a topic that so many people shy away from, but this show makes it the center of discussion and forces us to address an uncomfortable topic. I am already totally invested in all if these characters’ lives and particularly in seeing just how much Jon really planned ahead. We saw at the end of last week’s episode that Jon left Eddie a message that simply asked them to love each other – revealing that he did in fact know about Eddie and his wife sleeping together. I’m not sure how the rest of the guys are going to respond to this news when they find out.

On tonight’s episode, “Save the Date,” Gary, Rome, and Eddie discover that Jon really thought of everything before his passing by planning a surprise outing for Gary’s birthday at a Bruins Fantasy Camp. However, when a grave secret is exposed, Gary’s special day takes a turn for the worse as it creates conflict for everyone in the group.

To see which secret is exposed, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, SEAL Team, Single Parents, Riverdale, and All American.
