Tonight, AMC kicks off the fun new comedy Loaded. The series follows four guys who become millionaires overnight thanks to the massively popular mobile game they created. While the money gives the guys a whole new outlook on life, it also opens up a lot of new problems. Leon (Samuel Anderson, Doctor Who) is the leader of the group and wants to take some time to enjoy their new windfall, Josh (Jim Howick, Broadchurch) is the serious and practical one who’s looking toward the future, Ewan (Jonny Sweet, Babylon) is the socially awkward programmer, and Watto (Nick Helm, Uncle) is the wild one who just wants to have fun. With their company growing, the guys now find themselves dealing with new employee issues and the demands of American investor Casey (Mary McCormack, In Plain Sight). The series also stars Aimee-Ffion Edwards (Skins, Peaky Blinders), Lolly Adefope (Rovers), and Scarlett Alice Johnson (Pramface).

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. This series is a lot of fun and totally feels like the UK equivalent to Silicon Valley — you can even map most of these characters to their SV counterparts. This should nicely fill the techie TV show void left by SV’s season finale and will nicely lead up to next month’s final season premiere of Halt and Catch Fire.

On tonight’s premiere, “Lawsuit,” four friends become tech millionaires after selling their hit iPhone game “Cat Factory.”

Meet the four newly rich friends tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Superhuman, Will, and Daytime Divas.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/4/17

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! [Note from Jenny: According to Kyle below, in case you want to catch up, AMC is re-airing all previous 15 episodes of Season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead. Because they’re starting so early, at 5:45AM/4:45AMc, I wanted to post this tonight so you’d know to set your DVRs!]

Sunday night, Fear the Walking Dead returns for its third season. When we last left off, Chris had accepted his darker nature and had ditched his father to travel with some other like-minded young men. However, Travis later discovered that men had killed his son, and the shock of the situation unleashed a beast inside him. He beat Brandon and Derrick to death and mortally wounded one of the hotel residents in the process. The fallout from this led to the group being evicted from this safe haven and sent them on the run in search of Nick. Meanwhile, in La Colonia, Alejandro got bit by a walker, and he finally admitted he wasn’t actually immune. As Nick and Luciana led the rest of the people toward a military base, Alejandro stayed back to make one final stand against Marco and his men. As the group made it to the border, with the military base/refugee camp in sight, they suddenly came under fire. They tried to fight back, but Nick and Luciana were taken by the vigilantes. At the same time, Travis, Madison, and Alicia finally made it to La Colonia, where Margo and his gang were now walkers, and in his dying breath Alejandro told them that Nick was headed for the border.

Who are these people who took Nick and Luciana, and what do they want? Will Travis, Madison, and Alicia finally be reunited with Nick in time to save him? I was thrilled to see Chris get killed off last season – he was one of the weakest parts of the show. I look forward to seeing how the series improves without him and what kinds of new threats our group of survivors will face next.

If you missed any of last season or want to re-live it, AMC is re-airing all 15 episodes starting at 5:45am ET/PT tomorrow morning, leading up to the season premiere.

On Sunday night’s 2-hour premiere, “Eye of the Beholder/The New Frontier,” the Clark family find themselves in a dire predicament and must work together to discover a path to safety; and Strand faces resistance as he attempts to hold power over his domain.

Check out the two-hour season premiere on Sunday night on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Talking Dead, Food Network Star, The Leftovers, Silicon Valley, American Gods, and I’m Dying Up Here.

I’m loving seeing the Scorpion team stranded on the deserted island after their plane crash landed while on the way to a job-slash-honeymoon for Happy & Toby. Unfortunately, the pilot was injured – his arm was trapped, which led to compression syndrome. If they simply pried his arm loose from the wreckage, the poison that had built up would be free to travel through his bloodstream and would kill him. So Toby “MacGyvered” his way to building basically a filter using things from the plane and the island, and they were able to save the pilot’s life and his arm. The team tried to get the attention of a passing ship, but even with the flare they sent off, the ship didn’t see them or turn around. And since they figured out the EMP sent the plane off course without the pilot realizing, they know they’re VERY far from where they should have been and not in a highly trafficked area, and help may not be coming anytime soon, if at all.

Sylvester is having the hardest time with their situation. He was actually very un-Sly-like last week, much less scared and anxious, since he was sure they were going to die and therefore wasn’t afraid of it since he felt it was a foregone conclusion. And one of the funniest parts of the episode was Walter trying to be all lovey-dovey with Paige. He kept calling her different pet names and basically just being too sugary sweet. At first it kind of annoyed Paige, but she realized that it was just the only way he knew to react to his feelings, since they’re new to him. It was all very sweet and funny.

Tonight is the season finale. The team’s been stranded for three weeks. I can’t wait to see how it’s affecting everyone, especially Sylvester. The previews for him look awesomely funny!

On tonight’s episode, “Scorp Family Robinson,” three weeks after they crash land on a deserted island, tensions run high for Team Scorpion when they must battle to overcome their relationship obstacles in order to be rescued.

Find out how the team overcomes these obstacles tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Kids BBQ Championship & Man With a Plan.

Last week on Better Call Saul, we got the genesis of one of Breaking Bad’s key relationships – Mike met Gus Fring! Gus didn’t want Mike to kill Hector Salamanca but said he was free to mess with him all he wanted. So Mike hatched a clever plan involving sneakers and a rifle to make sure there was drug residue on the outside of Salamanca’s delivery truck when it tried to cross the border. Meanwhile, the police showed up at Chuck’s to arrest Jimmy, and one of his former public defender coworkers gave Jimmy a hard time when he saw him in the holding cell. Jimmy made bail and, despite Kim’s protests, decided he wanted to defend himself.

I like how the series is quickly moving toward Breaking Bad, setting up the pieces and the relationships that were in place when that show began. Can Jimmy get himself cleared of the charges levied by Chuck? If not, is this what is going to ultimately lead him to become Saul Goodman? What is Salamanca going to do in response to Mike’s actions? And how close are we to learning how he became the wheelchair-bound, mute, bell-ringing guy we saw at the start of Breaking Bad?

On tonight’s episode, “Sabrosito,” Jimmy calls in a favor from Mike. Meanwhile, new complications disrupt the Salamancas’s business; and Chuck and Jimmy struggle to compromise.

Find out what favor Jimmy calls in tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, The Great Indoors, Gotham, Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, and Angie Tribeca.

Tonight, Better Call Saul kicks off its third season on AMC. When we last left off, Jimmy had purposely altered his brother’s legal documents in order to steal Mesa Verde as a client. Chuck blamed his electromagnetic hypersensitivity for his absentmindedness; however, he suspected that Jimmy had something to do with the error. Chuck quit his job at the firm, had a panic attack that sent him to the hospital, and was back to wearing his tin foil hat around his darkened house. Jimmy felt bad and confessed to his brother what he had done, but he was unaware that Chuck had arranged the situation and had recorded the conversation. Meanwhile, Mike’s plan to execute Hector Salamanca was interrupted by a blaring car horn, and when he went to stop the noise, he found the word “Don’t” written on his vehicle.

Who left the note for Mike, and why didn’t the author want Hector killed? The general theory is that it was Gus Fring – are we going to see how those two first partnered up? How does Chuck plan to use this recording against his brother? Now that he knows that there was nothing physically wrong with him, will he abandon his paranoid ways and become the top lawyer he once was? And how will the existence of this tape affect Kim and Saul’s relationship, which is ultimately doomed, given where Breaking Bad picks up? I have been thoroughly enjoying this prequel series, and I’m looking forward to seeing where things go this season and what connections to the original series will pop up.

On tonight’s premiere, “Mabel,” Jimmy and Chuck’s relationship deteriorates; Kim feels the pressure of running her own firm; and Mike investigates the note left on his car.

If you missed any of the second season, AMC will be running a marathon of the entire second season starting at 11:30AM ET today. Otherwise, catch the start of the new season tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, Bates Motel, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, and Angie Tribeca.
