If We Control Your Remote… 1/18/16

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!

Kyle’s Choice

almostroyal118smallTonight, fake British aristocratic siblings Poppy (Amy Hoggart) and Georgie Carlton (Ed Gamble) are heading back across the pond to continue their tour of America in Almost Royal. This quasi-reality series takes a similar format to comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s many films and TV series, such as Da Ali G Show, Borat, and Bruno, where the actors remain in character the whole time but interact with real people who aren’t in on the joke and get real reactions.

I really enjoyed the first season – these rich, dim-witted, completely out of touch with reality Brits are hilarious to watch. The actors play dumb really well, and I am constantly finding myself laughing at their antics. I’m looking forward to seeing what type of adventures Poppy and Georgie get up to this season!

Tonight’s second season premiere features back-to-back new episodes. First up, in “Beauty,” Poppy and George return to the U.S. to look at the art of beauty and visit a school to learn to perfect blow-drying; judge a competition for beautiful babies; and take part in a beauty pageant. They also run into Mario Lopez. Then in, “The Great Outdoors,” the Carltons explore the outdoors and get up and close with Floridian wildlife; hike a trail with real Americans; and save lives on a popular beach.

Catch the first two episodes of the season on BBC America at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Supergirl, Superstore, Telenovela, and War & Peace.
