If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/4/18

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!

Last week Zach Braff returned to television in the new ABC comedy Alex, Inc.. In the premiere, Alex suddenly decided to quit his job working at a radio station in order to launch a new podcast company. His ragtag support team in this venture are his second cousin Eddie (who can sell anything) and his young former producer from the radio station (who is infatuated with Alex). While Alex’s wife supported his decision, Alex initially found it a little difficult to balance spending time with his two children and starting a new career. However, Alex soon found his groove and made his company’s first podcast all about what he and his family were going through as he launched his new business.

I was a bit skeptical when I first saw the ads for this series, but I have thoroughly enjoyed the first few episodes. This cast is hilarious and have such great chemistry right from the get go. Alex and his wife and kids feel like a real family, and their interactions with and reactions to one another feel so genuine. The series quickly finds a nice blend between the office and home life stories. And I also appreciate how the creators of the show found an appropriate and organic way to work in that wonderful, familiar Scrubs-style narration that Zach Braff is so good at. This show is a lot of fun and is definitely worth adding to your DVR!

On tonight’s episode, “The Wax Museum,” Eddie and Deirdre compete for Alex’s time; Alex does not like Rooni’s handmade costume for Ben’s class project on famous people.

See why Alex doesn’t like his son’s costume tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Modern Family, American Housewife, Designated Survivor, Survivor, The Blacklist, Life Sentence, The Americans, Schitt’s Creek, The Magicians, Krypton, and Suits.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/28/18

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!

Jenny’s Choice

In his first full-time TV gig since Scrubs, Zach Braff is back as Alex Schuman, a married father of two who quits his prominent job to pursue his dream of his own podcast company. Unfortunately, it’s not going to be as easy as he thinks. Thankfully, he has the support of his wife Rooni (Tiya Sircar, who played the Vicky/Real Eleanor/Denise on The Good Place) and kids Ben (Elisha Henig, who has guest starred in a good number of shows) and Soraya (newcomer Audyssie James. Joining Alex at his new podcast company are his cousin Eddie (Michael Imperioli, The Sopranos & more) and former producer Deirdre (relative newcomer Hillary Anne Matthews).

The previews for this seem adorable, and I am so excited for Zach Braff’s return to television. Tiya Sircar was a scene stealer on The Good Place, so I’m hopeful she’ll be fun to watch as Alex’s wife. The show is based on Alex Blumberg’s successful podcast “StartUp,” and Blumberg and Braff also service as executive producers, with Braff also playing a directorial role.

On tonight’s episode, “The Unfair Advantage,” with the help of wife Rooni and their children, Alex Schuman quits his prominent job to start his own podcast company telling real stories that matter. He hires his cousin Eddie and former producer, Deirdre, to help achieve his dream. Meanwhile, Ben performs magic at the school talent show which teaches Alex an important lesson about his future.

Meet Alex and his family tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, & Criminal Minds.
