If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/7/19

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!

Last week was Gina’s last week at the 99 on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Tying back to the previous episode, she took Jake’s advice and decided to spread her wings and fly. Much to Holt’s dismay, she didn’t have concrete plans for her future – basically anything that would then make her a millionaire. During his time with her, while they played game after game of chess, Holt tried to talk her out of it, but she stuck to her guns. The funniest part of the episode was Gina and Jake trying to get to Mario Lopez at the Manhattan Club and then having him show up at the “hungry monkeys” party only to be turned away. It was a sweet episode, seeing her spend time with all (okay, most…poor Hitchcock & Sully. LOL) of them – or in Terry’s case, giving him a subscription to the Yogurts of the World Club.

I love this show, and I love that the move to NBC didn’t change it. It’s still the same show we’ve always known and loved – funny and quick=witted with a little bit of heart.

On tonight’s episode, “A Tale of Two Bandits,” Terry believes the Pontiac Bandit is stealing cars again, but Jake is convinced his friend wouldn’t do that. The rest of the squad fight to keep Shaw’s a police bar after some firemen stake their claim to it. Craig Robinson & Rob Riggle guest star.

See if Terry or Jake are correct about Doug Judy tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, The Titan Games, Top Chef, Dr. Pimple Popper, Will & Grace, Beat Bobby Flay, & S.W.A.T.

A couple of weeks ago, Comedy Central kicked off the hilarious new series The Other Two, which centers around the lives of two twenty-something siblings whose younger brother becomes internet famous. Thirteen-year-old Ohio teenager Chase Dubek, under the stage name ChaseDreams, becomes an overnight sensation when his music video “Marry U At Recess” goes viral. His older siblings decide to try to ride their brother’s coattails in order to improve their failing lives. Cary (Drew Tarver, Bajillion Dollar Propertie$) is an aspiring actor who is struggling to find any work – even a role playing “guy who smells fart at party” for a TV commercial has become a dream gig for him. Meanwhile, his sister Brooke (Heléne Yorke, The Good Fight, Graves) is a former professional dancer who doesn’t know what she’s doing with her life. She recently broke up with her boyfriend and lost her job and is now constantly on the lookout for a guy to hook up with so she has a place to spend the night. The series also stars Ken Marino (Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, Childrens Hospital) as ChaseDreams’ new manager, Streeter, who wants to be more of a buddy to Chase.

This show is just so crazy and fun – the first two episodes had me smiling throughout. In addition to the wacky adventures of the siblings, there’s also a lot of fun meta commentary about the industry, social media, and our fame-obsessed culture mixed in. In last week’s episode, the siblings tagged along to a movie premiere that Chase was invited to. Cary managed to finally book his TV commercial by re-recording his audition “more straight,” while Brooke ended up going home with a 30-something year-old woman who turned out to actually be an 11-year-old YouTube star who does make-up tutorials. I can’t wait to see what Brooke and Cary get up to this week!

On tonight’s episode, “Chase Gets a Girlfriend,” Chase collaborates with another up-and-coming singer, forcing Brooke and Cary to confront their own relationships.

Find out what fun Brooke and Cary have tonight on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be recording Grey’s Anatomy, A Million Little Things, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Big Brother, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Will & Grace.

So far this season on Star Trek: Discovery, we’ve been chasing seven mysterious signals that occurred simultaneously, some of which are parsecs beyond normal human ability to get to. Carrying from the prior episode, Tilly was haunted by the ghost of one her elementary school friends who she knew was dead. The full-on audio-visual hallucinations were a bit much for her, and she started skitzing out slightly. On the Klingon side of things, L’Rell was struggling to maintain her control of the houses. After Michael Burnham’s adopted mother showed up and conferred with her daughter and Captain Pike, they concluded that Spock was currently in a Psychological Care Facility without his consent.

Voq/Ash, the Kilgon who underwent re-constructive surgery to appear human and infiltrate the Star Fleet, contacted Michael about the tenuous position his mate L’Rell was in. When Tilly was in the presence of Stamets, her ghost freaked out and identified him as the captain, when he absolutely isn’t. Tilly started to reaaaally lose her shit, and she quit on the bridge and tried to play it off like NBD. She didn’t want to confess to how crazy she was, or she might lose her career.

When L’Rell found her husband hanged, she and Voq were ambushed by the house of Kor. They fought back and easily slaughtered the first wave. There was gore galore in this Klingon melee heaven sequence! #hazmoarplz? Michael figured out that Tilly was in fact infested with a dark matter/spore creature and helped to eject it from her body and contain it. The Kor wet works squad moved in on L’Rell & Voq and were just about to kill them when alternate time line Philippa Georgiou interceded and saved them. To save face and maintain control over the Klingon empire, L’Rell staged a fake execution of her mate, Voq/Ash, and their hybrid child. In fact, they are alive and in hiding. Voq is staying with Georgio, and the child will be in a location unknown and hence safe.

On tonight’s episode, “An Obol for Charon,” a mysterious sphere threatens the U.S.S. Discovery even as May, in her original form, implements a plan that puts Tilly’s life in danger. Saru and Burnham’s bond grows when Saru is forced to acknowledge a deeply unsettling Kelpien truth. Pike receives new intel on Spock from a loyal friend.

Check out the mysterious sphere that threatens the Discovery tonight on CBSAA at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching Broad City & Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Law & Order: SVU always hits us hard with the cases week after week, but they also never fail to keep the characters evolving. Last week, Rollins had her baby, but she also broke up with her boyfriend after he proposed. He tried to propose to her before she gave birth, but she told him she’d think about it. She then explained that she didn’t want to marry him, and no matter what she says, I think it is because she is in love with Carisi. Those two have a deep connection that is apparent when they are together. They are meant to be.

On tonight’s episode, “Part 33,” as Stone prosecutes the case of a woman who killed her abusive husband, Benson and her squad wrestle with the duty of testifying against her.

To see if the team can handle testifying against someone they see as a victim, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, A Million Little Things, S.W.A.T., Beat Bobby Flay, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Titan Games.
