If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/23/16

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

macgyver923smallThis season, I was looking forward to two new shows in particular: Lethal Weapon, which everyone seems to have enjoyed more than they thought they would…and the other? Tonight’s premiere of MacGyver. I was a big fan when I caught the original series on repeats years ago, and Lucas Till is adorable. So I had high hopes – and after seeing a screener for the first episode a couple of weeks ago, I have to say I wasn’t disappointed in the least. In case you don’t know…

Angus “Mac” MacGyver is a young special agent in a clandestine organization within the US government, and his specialty is basically being able to do almost anything with almost nothing – like disarming a bomb with nothing but a paperclip. In the original series, MacGyver is a bit older and has been around a while. So this iteration is us seeing Mac in his younger years, before he turns into the MacGyver from the original series. In this one, Mac works with former CIA agent Jack Dalton (George Eads, CSI) and Riley Davis (Tristin Mays), a computer hacker they “break out” of jail to help with their case but who ends up an integral member of the team. Their boss Patricia Thornton is played by Sandrine Holt, and Mac’s roommate, Wilt Bozer, who doesn’t know what Mac really does, is played by Justin Hires (from TV’s failed Rush Hour drama).

On tonight’s episode, “The Rising,” Angus “Mac” MacGyver and Jack Dalton, special agents for the Department of External Services (DXS), join forces to recover a missing bioweapon that has the ability to destroy hundreds of thousands of people with one single drop.

Meet Mac, Jack, and Riley tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, & Van Helsing.
