Last year, Netflix joined in the game of making holiday-themed movies like those romantic comedies and dramas that flood Lifetime and Hallmark this time of year. One of Netflix’s immensely popular original films last winter was A Christmas Prince, and today the streaming service launches the sequel, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding.

In the original film, American magazine journalist Amber Moore (Rose McIver, iZombie) was sent to the nation of Aldovia to cover the story of playboy Prince Richard (Ben Lamb, The White Queen), who was set to take the throne following his father’s recent death. There were rumors that he might abdicate, so Amber started snooping through the castle, where she was mistaken for young Princess Emily’s new tutor. Amber decided to run with that and use her new position to investigate the rumors. She uncovered evidence that Richard had been adopted, and this caused a contention as to the proper heir to the throne. By the end, Emily and Richard had both fallen in love with Amber, despite her initial dishonesty, and Richard was ultimately deemed the proper heir. Amber went back home to start a popular blog about Richard and her adventures, but as there is always a happy ending in these stories, on New Year’s Eve, Richard showed up at Amber’s father’s diner and proposed to her.

Tonight the story continues. It’s been nearly a year since the proposal, and the couple is planning a Christmas wedding. However, some wrenches are thrown into their plans – a political crisis puts the kingdom in jeopardy, and Amber starts to question whether she has it in her to be a queen. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that everything probably works out in the end and the happy couple will tie the knot! I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but I always get sucked into watched these predictable but fun holiday TV movies. I really enjoyed the first A Christmas Prince, so I’m looking forward to checking out the sequel tonight. Netflix has been making some really great holiday films this year! Last week’s The Christmas Chronicles is another fun one to check out!

Check out this fun Christmas flick now on Netflix!

I’ll also be watching/recording Child Support.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/27/18

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 #1

I’ve been pretty captivated the last few months by the new team on Lethal Weapon, which teams up Seann William Scott with Damon Wayans as two unorthodox LAPD detectives, even without having seen the first two seasons. Admittedly, I am obsessed with everything Scott’s done post-Stiffler, but the show does get on, on its own merits.

The last new episode opened with Cole (Scott) MIA, having flaked on his daughter. When she called Murtaugh to look for him, he recommended his daughter Rianna to babysit. Murtaugh was next at the scene of an abduction. He concluded that Cole was abducted by the Vasquez cartel. At the cartel torture house, they pulled out a few of Cole’s fingernails before Sofia Vasquez revealed herself to him. She had him buried alive rather than shooting him. Murtaugh confronted Cole’s CIA handler, Tom Barnes, who insisted he didn’t betray Cole. He “put his best man on the job” and expected him to take out Vasquez.

Throughout the episode, we saw Cole and his baby mama, Natalie, in their first meetings overseas. He was undercover as a photographer and she was a nurse. They fell in love and she got preggers. Back in the present, other former undercover agent, “The Gute” got them a lead that put them on Cole’s trail, but all they found was his bloody discarded fingernails. Murtaugh again confronted Barnes, who recommended they flip former cartel lieutenant Benny Aliva, whom LAPD had in holding. In flashbacks, we saw that Natalie became pregnant while still stationed overseas.

Murtaugh tracked down Cole with Aliva’s help and dug him up before he died. While recovering in the hospital, Cole got immersed in the memory of talking to Natalie about plans for a honeymoon in Bali. Later that night, Cole KO’d Murtaugh and locked him in Mrs. Murtaugh’s trunk so he could go confront Vasquez on his own. Murtaugh woke up to his daughter stealing the car to go out with her bf. When the boyfriend turned creeper, Roger emerged and took the car back. Cole saved Sofia Vasquez from the hit team Aliva was leading against her, with a last-minute assist from Murtaugh. In the final scene, Cole professed his love for Natalie was undying and she kissed him but was very conflicted about the timing.

On tonight’s episode, “What the Puck,” Cole wants to talk to Natalie about their relationship before it’s too late, but a wrench is thrown in his plans after he bumps into a new ADA, Erica (guest star Nishi Munshi). Meanwhile, after being kicked out of the house for Trish’s girl’s night, Murtaugh finds himself an unlikely friend.

See if Cole makes a decision about Natalie tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

We have reached the part of the year when our favorite shows go on hiatus for the holiday season, and tonight is the fall finale for 9-1-1. I can’t describe just how much I love this show and what an amazing job the writers have done casting it.

On the last new episode, we got to learn a lot about Hen and how she started off at the fire department. It was heartbreaking to watch how she was treated when she first started – the racism, sexism, and judgement. Her captain was verbally abusive, and yet she fought hard to be an extraordinary firefighter. Chimney was there for her, and eventually the powers that be stepped in and fired her captain. It was a beautiful episode, and I loved how it was focused on Hen only so we could learn more about her. Hopefully they do similar episodes for other characters eventually as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Merry Ex-Mas,” the holidays are naughty and nice for the first responders, who must deal with a stampede at a toy store, a mistletoe stunt gone awry, and neighbors competing in a Christmas-light showdown. Meanwhile, Bobby contemplates his future with Athena, Chimney and Buck attempt to lift Maddie’s spirits, and Eddie must decide if he wants to give his son what he really wants for Christmas: a visit with his mom.

To see how Chimney and Buck help Maddie, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, The Resident, Bull, Manifest, Holiday Baking Championship, and The Good Doctor.

I am loving season two of The Guest Book. It really threw me at first when I realized they’d switched locations and half the cast, but really, Eddie and Vivian really are fantastic all on their own. Add in the very mismatched couple of Nikki & Tommy and cutie Bodhi, and it’s made for a really fun season so far. My favorite part of last week was when Vivian convinced Bodhi to come stay with her and he found her hidden camera in the tissue box in the bathroom. Somehow she made him think someone from the store had put the camera in there. *snicker* I thought she was going to faint (or have a big O) on the spot when he said the way to get back at them was to…well, pleasure himself in front of the camera so they had to see it. That would serve them right! Ha! That whole scene was hysterical.

The guests have been fun this season too. The “drug rehabilitation” people I think were my favorites – or rather, that story line. I also really loved that they brought back Michael Rapaport’s character from last season. And of course, I’m on pins and needles to see when or if the scorpion is going to strike!

On tonight’s episode, “Invisible Son,” Clem asks a stripper to pretend to be his girlfriend in order to convince his vacationing family that he is normal. Once they get to Bare Feet Retreat we discover that Clem’s fake girlfriend isn’t the only thing he’s been lying about. Lexi Ainsworth, Lisa Rinna, Matthew Willig, Pete Davidson, & Tipper Newton guest star.

To see what else Clem lied about, tune in to TBS at 10:30/9:30c.

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are geniuses, and the show 9-1-1 is another prime example of what can be produced and created in the hands of this creative team. The characters are funny, yet they still manage to be deep and relatable. Buck is one of the most relatable characters right now because he’s working on getting back into the dating scene without sleeping with whatever girls throw themselves at him. The funny thing is now that he’s developed a conscience, he is more aware of when someone is using him for sex…which his reporter lady friend is definitely doing. Watching Buck realize that his old moves are being used on him was hilarious, but in the end I hope Buck can find real love again because he deserves it.

Elsewhere, Chimney and Maddie realized they are moving along into a relationship without actually labeling it. I completely support this and think they need to move forward with the relationship fully. I’m just waiting for Buck and Chimney to have to save Maddie when her ex-husband shows up, because we all know no one can escape their past on this show.

On tonight’s episode, “Hen Begins,” Hen relives her evolution into the firefighter she is today as she recalls the first times she met Chimney and Athena.

To take this stroll down memory lane, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Resident, The Voice, The Good Doctor, Magnum PI, The Neighborhood, Happy Together, Holiday Baking Championship, Arrow, and Manifest.
