If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/27/17

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

Like Monday night, one of my picks tonight is another new military-action drama. This time it’s CBS’s SEAL Team, starring David Boreanaz (Bones, Angel). He plays the “respected, intense leader” of a Tier One Navy SEAL team (ergo the title of the show…) that deploys on covert missions worldwide at a moment’s notice. Along with Hayes, the team consists of: Ray (Neil Brown Jr, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency), the man who’s been there the longest and with whom Hayes shares an ingrained shorthand, and Sonny (AJ Buckley, CSI: NY), an exceptional, loyal soldier with a checkered past who still combats self-destructive tendencies. Clay Spenser (Max Thieriot, Bates Motel, Texas Rising) is a young, multi-lingual second-generation SEAL with heavy drive and dedication, and he’s undergoing additional rigorous training in the hopes of joining Hayes’s select team. Also vita to the team are CIA analyst Mandy Ellis (Jessica Pare, Mad Men, Jack & Bobby) who has sacrificed everything in her drive to root out evil and take down terrorists, and Davis (Toni Trucks, Barbershop, Made in Jersey), a no-nonsense, take-charge logistics officer and unofficial den mother responsible for outfitting the team with the necessary gear for each mission.

I really enjoyed this pilot. There’s a lot of action, a lot of family time that is far from without drama. It out of all the like-minded shows this season reminds me of The Unit, which is one of my all-time favorite shows. I’ve been excited to share this one with my family and can’t wait to see the pilot again and new episodes myself.

On tonight’s episode, “Tip of the Spear,” an elite unit of Navy SEALs must navigate their professional and personal lives as they execute dangerous, high-stakes missions.

Check out this military drama tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/22/14

We’re halfway through the week, and it’s not getting any less busy for my television schedule. I love TV, which is a good thing, since my schedule is just getting flooded by so many new episodes and series premieres. Let’s take a look at what’s tying up my attention tonight and what we recommend.

Megan’s Choice

wahlburgerssmallIt’s no secret that I enjoy Donnie Wahlberg on Blue Bloods, so when I heard about Wahlburgers, I was excited! This show is a look at the personal and professional life of Boston chef Paul Wahlberg and his real-life entourage as he prepares to expand his hamburger restaurant business. His entourage includes his family, which just happens to be Mark and Donnie Wahlberg—that is a lot of handsome Boston boys on one show!

On tonight’s series premiere, “Five O’clock is Dinner Time,” Donnie brings girlfriend Jenny McCarthy home to meet his mother and instigates a “sauce-off” between Alma and Paul; Paul works on a special “Burger of the Month” for Jenny.

To see how it goes when Jenny meets Mama Wahlberg, tune in to A&E at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Chicago PD, Super Fun Night, Modern Family, Law & Order: SVU, Duck Dynasty, Suburgatory, CSI, Top Chef, Klondike, and Opposite Worlds.
