If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/7/19

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!

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight is the US premiere (this was previously aired in the UK) of Bulletproof on The CW. According to The CW, “the adrenalin-fueled action thriller Bulletproof follows two undercover cops, Bishop (Noel Clarke, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Pike (Ashley Walters, Top Boy) as they chase down hardened criminals in London’s East End. Despite their differences, Bishop and Pike work brilliantly together even when the chemistry between them looks set to explode. Full of grit and sometimes gloss, Bulletproof is stylish and funny with entertaining, riveting criminal cases in each episode.”

It sounds like it’s right up my alley, although it feels like an odd fit for The CW. Whatever network it’s on, I can’t wait to give it a shot tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “Hit the Ground Running,” an informant is killed, leading Pike and Bishop to uncover a luxury car theft ring. When two members of the team are taken hostage, Bishop accidentally shoots Jonesy (David Elliot), but when he arrives at the ER to check on his mate, Bishop is the one who walks away wounded.

Check out this British import tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’m not sure I’ll actually watch Facebook Watch’s newest show, but it looks intriguing and has a fun voice cast. Human Discoveries is an animated series featuring a group of friends living at the dawn of human civilization. They’re the first to discover necessities like fire and the wheel. But much more importantly, they’ll stumble onto humanity’s best, and worst, innovations. Art. Alcohol. Fashion. Racism. Small talk. And, much to their confusion, monogamy. Voicing the characters are Anna Kendrick, Lisa Kudrow, Zac Efron, Lamorne Morris, Jillian Bell, & Paul Scheer.

I can’t find any episode title or description, but check it out tonight on Facebook Watch at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bring the Funny, Chopped Junior, Chopped, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.

Tonight, one of my favorite comedies, The Detour, returns for its fourth season on TBS. Last season, the Parker family headed to Alaska and assumed fake identities to hide from the authorities, but as usual, they managed to mess things up and went back on the run. Meanwhile, the somewhat crazy Edie had been stalking Nate after she secretly impregnated herself with his sperm. It turns out that Edie also happened to be a long-lost sister of Robin’s. (How is she going to react when she finds out that her husband is the father of her niece/nephew?!) In the season finale, the family ended up in an abandoned ghost town filled with LARPers. Delilah used this distraction to exact a plan she had apparently been laying the groundwork for all season. She ran away, stealing her family’s money and a car from an admirer, leaving a message for the rest of her family, requesting that they not look for her.

The new season picks up several months later, with Nate, Robin, and Jared amidst their world-wide search for Delilah. What I love about this show is its blend of physical comedy and deliciously inappropriate humor. This show doesn’t worry about being PC and goes places that many comedies would shy away from. The Parkers are constantly getting into ridiculously awkward situations, and as they try to get out of them, they only succeed in making things ten times worse. Even if they are trying to do the right thing, there is always some sort of misunderstanding or unintended consequences to their actions. I can’t wait to see where the search for Delilah leads the Parkers this season and what kind of craziness they cause in the process. I checked out the first two episodes, and the show is just as wild and insane as ever. Just when you think they can’t top the previous season, they somehow manage to do so!

On tonight’s premiere, “The Search,” the Parkers embark on a world-wide search to find their runaway daughter, Delilah.

Find out how the season starts tonight on TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Blood & Treasure, The 100, Animal Kingdom, and Chrisley Knows Best.

I’m super excited because another favorite game show that I used to watch reruns of all the time, Press Your Luck, is premiering tonight! If you don’t know this one, this game show’s contestants answer questions to earn spins and then use those spins on the “Big Board,” to win cash and other prizes. Unfortunately, the “WHAMMY” can get them. I don’t know how they’ll handle it now, but at least back in the day, the whammies were these cute little…elf-like creatures dressed in various costumes that walked across the TV screen and stole all the money if a contestant landed on them.

Elizabeth Banks is the new host. She’s been in a lot of things, but for me she’s most notably from Scrubs. I hope she’ll be a fun host and that they kept all the fun Whammies in their silly costumes and actions. I’ll definitely be tuning in!

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on ABC at 10/9c**.

**Unless you’re like me in the Kansas City area, which won’t get to see it until midnight, due to the KC mayoral debate. Boo! LOL

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Got Talent, Chopped, Blood & Treasure, Sweet Home Sextuplets, & Songland.

My pick tonight is a twist on the songster reality competition show, Songland. Instead of singers, this time the contestants will be competing to be the top song writer. Each week, one guest artist (including Charlie Puth, Meghan Trainor, Kelsea Ballerini, Macklemore, will.i.am, & more!) will visit “Songland” to hear unknown songwriters pitch their original material. Four songwriters will perform their original tracks in front of the guest artist and three big-time producers in music: Ryan Tedder, the lead singer of OneRepublic and a four-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter and producer for Adele, Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé; Ester Dean, a Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer for Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Nicki Minaj, as well as an actress who starred in the Pitch Perfect film franchise; and Shane McAnally, a Grammy-winning songwriter and producer for Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson, and Sam Hunt, who has 38 #1 country records and was named the 2019 ACM Songwriter of the Year.

Each song’s lyrics, arrangements, beats, melody, and story will be considered by the panel as the producers and guest artist engage in a lively discussion about ways to creatively adapt them to better fit the style and sensibility of the recording artist of the week. After the performances, the guest artist will choose three songwriters to move forward to the studio and pair each songwriter with the producer best suited to perfecting their songs. In the studio, the songs will take shape in unexpected ways as the songwriter and producer duos work together to win over the recording artist. In the end, a winner will be chosen and their song will be recorded and released for a global audience. What a fun twist to the other music competition shows, yeah?

On tonight’s episode, “John Legend,” undiscovered songwriters are put center stage as they pitch their original material to mega-star John Legend and a panel of chart-topping music producers.

Check out this fun new show tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Jeff Dunham: Talking Heads, America’s Got Talent, MasterChef Junior, Chopped, The Hot Zone, Jeff Foxworthy: Stand-up Guy, Blood & Treasure, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.
