If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/13/17

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, AMC’s sci-fi drama, Humans, returns for a second season. The series is set in the near future, where human-like robots known as synths have become a regular part of society, almost like a standard household appliance. In the first season, some of these synths had become sentient and now had the ability to think and feel like humans. Leo Elster, the son of the original creator of the synths – and part synth himself – had been tracking down these conscious synths to protect them from those eager to tear them apart to discover what makes them tick. The Hawkins family, who had purchased one of these synths to help out with housework, found themselves swept up in the middle of the action and drama. By the end of the season, Leo’s group of sentient synths interfaced with one another in order to share their individual pieces of the sentient code. Leo saved the completed code to a hard drive and considered publishing it so that all synths round the world would have the choice to become conscious, but he ultimately decided to hold off. However, synth Niska secretly made her own backup of the code before heading off to some unknown destination to live on her own.

What does Niska plan to do with this code? Will she unleash it to awaken every synth around the globe? Will Leo ever find a safe haven for Mia and the others? And who is still hunting them down to discover this “flaw” in the code? Will Laura ever forgive her husband Joe for sleeping with their synth, Mia, and how will the Hawkins family fit into the larger story of the second season?

This series was in my top ten for 2015, and I’m really happy to finally see it back for a second season! Not only does it provide an interesting story, some tense moments, and some great drama, but there is also this very interesting layer to the show that explores what actually makes someone human. The acting is superb – the people playing the synths are amazing at making these characters look so lifeless and robotic as needed!

On tonight’s premiere, “Episode 1,” Niska faces a critical decision, while Mia, Leo, and Max remain in hiding. Meanwhile, the Hawkins struggle to move on; and Dr. Athena Morrow gets a surprise visitor.

See the season premiere tonight on AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Quantico, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, The Celebrity Apprentice, Timeless, 24: Legacy, APB, Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, and Beyond.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/6/17

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!

Jenny’s Choice

One of the shows I’ve most been looking forward to is APB, which premieres tonight on FOX. Justin Kirk (Tyrant, Weeds) stars as tech billionaire Gideon Reeves. When he witnesses his best friend’s murder and learns that the police may never be able to find the killer, he decides to fix it the only way he knows how: using technology. From fancy new cop cars to a drone and much, much more, he’ll do a complete overhaul on how the police in the 13th District fight crime. Natalie Martinez (Kingdom, Under the Dome) stars as Detective Theresa Murphy, who has a great chemistry with Reeves, although it takes her a bit to warm up to him. Ernie Hudson is great as the precinct’s captain, Ned Conrad. And Nestor Serrano (The Last Ship, Revenge) plays Mayor Michael Salgado, a character I think I’ll love to hate.

I’ve seen the pilot and really enjoyed it. Reeves is quite cocky, very full of himself, but Justin Kirk plays him brilliantly when his friend is killed. I loved the tech they used in this first episode alone, so I can’t wait to see more! One thing I loved is that I don’t think they used any tech that I couldn’t see actually being used in real life…

On tonight’s episode, “Hard Reset,” after witnessing the murder of his best friend, tech billionaire Gideon Reeves takes charge of a troubled Chicago police district and reboots it using technical innovation; Gideon launches the APB app, but things don’t go quite as planned.

Check out the new show tonight on FOX at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 24: Legacy, Kevin Can Wait, Kids Baking Championship, Man With a Plan, Superior Donuts, 2 Broke Girls, & Scorpion.
