If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/1/19

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

Last week on Legion, one of the most amazing things happened… My current favorite band, Superorganism, appeared as guardians of David’s hidden base to perform their most popular song, “Something For Your Mind,” a quarter of the way into the season debut. It was coconuts! It was prawns sipping pineapple juice out of coconuts! I was worried season three might fizzle out after the slightly offbeat second season finale left David on the run from his friends, but holy shit they set the tone correct. Instead of tracking David, the first fifteen minutes of the episode, we instead watched a young Japanese girl named Switch in her day-to-day life as a student as she unraveled a mystery. She was following clues that Legion was leaving to find a time traveler as an ally. When she finally found the correct building, she was guided by Superorganism in this amazing musical interlude.
 
 


 
 
Once amongst David and his new followers, Switch discovered that David was destined to die that day, every time at Syd’s hands. Switch kept resetting the afternoon until on the third try, David teleported his entire base somewhere else as Farouk and Division Three closed in to ambush them, and just like that, out the gate this season is amazing. The set design is back to the bright and colorful mode we enjoyed in season one, and the excitement is back in this show. I hope, hope, hope that Orono and Superorganism will be around for a few more episodes since they are already technically characters in the show now. Maybe they’ll even do a few more songs? “Everybody Wants To Be Famous”? Maybe “It’s All Good”? Or maybe a new musical group might pop up this episode? I don’t know & don’t care. I’ll be glued to the screen the instant this goes live!

On tonight’s episode, “Chapter 21,” David prepares for a journey.

Don’t miss the fun tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching whatever zany hilarity that the Smith family gets up to in American Dad!
