If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/18/18

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

Last week, I blogged about South Park on account of another great Halloween episode they did, and this week it is once more the holiday specials that has me raving about Bob’s Burgers, a show that consistently times its run around sets of stellar X-Mas & Turkey Day installments. This week will bring the Thanksgiving cheer, and I am sure it’s going to be hilarious.

If you missed last week, it was a sample of a well-balanced episode with three subplots intertwining. The main story followed Bob’s forays into working as an Uber driver and how that embroiled him into a robbery spree with an elderly woman, Edith. The kids meanwhile were stuck at a birthday party for a kid they hardly even knew or liked, Colton. Back at the restaurant, Linda tried to help Teddy get over his aversion to sushi in time for a sushi date that he had later in the day.

Unbeknownst to Bob, Edith was on a mission to steal all the quilt squares from her quilting group before they could sew them together that afternoon at the community center. Bob didn’t think it was the best idea, but by the end he was fully on board for the caper. After stealing the last piece from under the nose of snotty Quilting Club President Lillian, Edith attached all the pieces. She even added her piece, which had been banned: it was a tile that depicted the Sideshow Freak people from the Wonderwharf. They were an important part of town history and Edith’s childhood specifically.

At the birthday party, which was themed after “The Great Gatsby,” the Belcher kids decided to steal back the knockoff Rubix Cube they brought as a gift and replace it with Gene’s smelly socks. When Louise went to make the switch though, Colton caught her in the act. He actually found it very funny and rooted on any attempts to spoil his parents’ dumb party ideas. They were doing it all for Instagram pix and likes. In the third thread, Teddy never really found any sushi he liked, but he went on the date anyway – he opted instead to just throw the sushi aside when his date looked away. Kind of a fail but par the course for Teddy.

On tonight’s episode, “I Bob Your Pardon,” the Belchers set out to save a turkey from a trip to the slaughterhouse, but when a local reporter catches wind of their schemes, the mission becomes more complicated than they had anticipated.

See if the family can save the turkey tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching Star Wars Resistance, Supergirl, Family Guy, & Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
