If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/20/19

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!

This past season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow could easily have been re-branded as Sarah Lance and the Spooky Kids, considering the show’s hard shift into matters of mystical origins. After season three (in which we saw Damian Darhk make his third run at being an Arrowverse Big Bad), this show is now nothing but time anomalies of a magical nature. For example, the penultimate episode of season four last week saw John Constantine was on a quest to hell to save Ray. Neron, the evil demon possessing Ray’s body, was using the Ray Palmer identity to promote this new phone app that will track mystical creatures. The Fairy Godmother, Tabitha, was loose too, attached to geeky Time Bureau intern Gary.

Nora Dahrk was on the scene and trying to stop Neron, but she was outmatched. With constant prodding from Tabitha, Gary finally started to get mean to the Legends. He was really just serving as a spoiler that distracted the team as Neron attempted to fake a monster attack to get his app better promotion. As it turned out, the silver lining for him was that the TOS of the app signed over the users’ souls to him. If he could get his app to go viral, he’d ascend to a position of dominance in hell.

Speaking of, Constantine finally got through to the Triumvirate, a trio of demons that oversaw much of hell together. They tortured him with the reminder that an innocent girl named Astrid remained in hell due to his past failures. Failing in all other attempts to stop Neron, Nora agreed to take Tabitha’s curse, thinking her wish-granting powers would allow her to rescue John & Ray from hell. But, no, in assuming the curse, she also assumed the charge: Gary. Constantine failed in his attempt to rescue Astrid. She’d been corrupted by hell and chose to remain there despite Constantine’s bargain to have her released. But perhaps we’re saved, because Gary did dispatch Fairy Godmother Nora Dahrk to hell to save her friends. Last but not least, the dragon egg that was hidden at young Zari’s house began to hatch, foreshadowing perhaps this year’s Beebo will be a baby dragon that whups serious ass!

On tonight’s episode, “Hey, World!” while on a mission to find Ray, Constantine and Nora discover Neron’s evil plan. Nate convinces the Legends to think outside the box and suggests a dangerous plan to unite magical creatures and people to save the world.

Learn Nate’s dangerous plan tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching American Dad!

Megan’s Choice

I began watching The Code out of curiosity and also out of love for Dana Delaney. She truly is a fantastic actor. After the first couple episodes, I was invested in the characters, the storylines, and found myself anxious for more, which surprised me given how saturated my television viewing schedule is by procedurals. There is something about the cast that makes this show worth your time, and the writers do an excellent job of bringing important subjects to the table for each and every case. I am particularly fond of Abe and his duty to Alex – the wife of his best friend who died in combat. The story seems to be moving toward a romantic place between the two of them, and while it may seem too soon for some, in the world of soldiers it makes sense. Personally I think the chemistry is great and worth exploring. Time will tell if this new show can earn a renewal, but I think CBS would be smart to give it another shot.

On tonight’s episode, “Above the Knee,” Harper gets caught in a firefight when she, Abe, and Maya travel to Syria to investigate a Marine accused of desertion. Also, Col. Turnbull travels to Germany to be with her wounded son, Adam.

Find out how Adam is doing tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Beat Shazam, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and The Fix.
