If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/4/17

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! [Note from Jenny: According to Kyle below, in case you want to catch up, AMC is re-airing all previous 15 episodes of Season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead. Because they’re starting so early, at 5:45AM/4:45AMc, I wanted to post this tonight so you’d know to set your DVRs!]

Sunday night, Fear the Walking Dead returns for its third season. When we last left off, Chris had accepted his darker nature and had ditched his father to travel with some other like-minded young men. However, Travis later discovered that men had killed his son, and the shock of the situation unleashed a beast inside him. He beat Brandon and Derrick to death and mortally wounded one of the hotel residents in the process. The fallout from this led to the group being evicted from this safe haven and sent them on the run in search of Nick. Meanwhile, in La Colonia, Alejandro got bit by a walker, and he finally admitted he wasn’t actually immune. As Nick and Luciana led the rest of the people toward a military base, Alejandro stayed back to make one final stand against Marco and his men. As the group made it to the border, with the military base/refugee camp in sight, they suddenly came under fire. They tried to fight back, but Nick and Luciana were taken by the vigilantes. At the same time, Travis, Madison, and Alicia finally made it to La Colonia, where Margo and his gang were now walkers, and in his dying breath Alejandro told them that Nick was headed for the border.

Who are these people who took Nick and Luciana, and what do they want? Will Travis, Madison, and Alicia finally be reunited with Nick in time to save him? I was thrilled to see Chris get killed off last season – he was one of the weakest parts of the show. I look forward to seeing how the series improves without him and what kinds of new threats our group of survivors will face next.

If you missed any of last season or want to re-live it, AMC is re-airing all 15 episodes starting at 5:45am ET/PT tomorrow morning, leading up to the season premiere.

On Sunday night’s 2-hour premiere, “Eye of the Beholder/The New Frontier,” the Clark family find themselves in a dire predicament and must work together to discover a path to safety; and Strand faces resistance as he attempts to hold power over his domain.

Check out the two-hour season premiere on Sunday night on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Talking Dead, Food Network Star, The Leftovers, Silicon Valley, American Gods, and I’m Dying Up Here.

fearthewalkingdead823smallThe return of The Walking Dead is still six weeks away, but to help fill the zombie void, tonight AMC kicks off the new prequel/spin-off series, Fear the Walking Dead. In the original series, we were thrown right into the thick of the zombie apocalypse as Rick Grimes awoke from his coma, but we never got to see what the original outbreak was like. This new series takes a look at how those events unfolded, through the eyes of a whole new group of survivors in Los Angeles.

The cast of characters includes divorced high school English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis, Gang Related), his free-spirited ex-wife Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez, Orange is the New Black), and their son Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), as well as Travis’s fiancee Madison Clark (Kim Dickens, House of Cards) and her two kids — the highly-ambitious Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey, The 100) and college drop-out Nick (Frank Dillane, Sense8), who also has a drug problem. Joining them are immigrant barber Daniel Salazar (Rubén Blades, Gideon’s Crossing), his devoutly-religious wife Griselda (Patricia Reyes Spíndola, The Color of Passion), and their first-generation American daughter Ofelia (Mercedes Mason, 666 Park Avenue).

I’m really looking forward to seeing what the initial stages of the apocalypse are like, the panic and mayhem that ensues, and how a very different group comes together and figures out how to survive.

On tonight’s 90-minute premiere, “Pilot,” a dysfunctional blended family is forced together when they realize a reported virus is actually the start of the zombie apocalypse.

To see how the zombie apocalypse began, tune in to AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Strain, The Great Food Truck Race, The Last Ship, Falling Skies, and The Brink.
