If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/18

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

My pick tonight is ABC’s latest drama, The Rookie, starring Castle vet, Nathan Fillion, who plays John Nolan, a small-town guy who pursues his dream of being an LAPD officer after an incident one day changes the way he looks at his life. He’s the force’s oldest rookie, so many of the higher-ups feel like he’s just a “walking midlife crisis,” and some are even really hard on him, since if he can’t keep up, he’ll not only be a danger to himself but to the public and other officers out there with him.

I was a big Castle (& Nathan Fillion) fan and was sad when it ended, even though the last few seasons weren’t as great as the beginning. I’m an even bigger fan of cop shows, so combine Nathan, cop shows, and a few producers from some of my all-time favorite shows like Criminal Minds & Human Target, and you know I’m going to look forward to it. When I got a chance to watch the pilot, I was both scared and excited – excited, because, duh…and scared because I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. But it did, even more than I’d hoped. There’s some serious story lines, but there’s also that Fillion charm and some laughs and romance as well, so I have my fingers crossed that it’ll be as popular with others as I think it should be.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after a life-altering incident, John Nolan decides to pursue his dream of becoming a police officer; as the force’s oldest rookie, John is met with skepticism from some higher-ups.

Find out why John decides to join the police department tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Conners, The Little Couple, NCIS, The Kids Are Alright, Chopped, FBI, Lethal Weapon, NCIS: New Orleans, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.

The Best TV of 2018 So Far

The first six months of 2018 have been very good to us in terms of what’s happening on the small screen. Find out what I think are the top viewing choices as we head in to the end of the year.
 
 
Atlanta

The sprawling, somewhat surreal account of the world inside and outside of the rap scene in Atlanta sees Donald Glover continuing to take risks in the second season.

He’s trying everything: there is a straight-up horror movie in one of the episodes and a relationship drama that plays out at a German Fasnacht festival in another.
 
My Take: It’s as intelligent as it is profound, and it effortlessly checks every box as to what a good series should be. It is one of the funniest dramas on television at the moment and is a bruising comedy as well.
