If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/7/19

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

My first pick tonight is the US premiere (this was previously aired in the UK) of Bulletproof on The CW. According to The CW, “the adrenalin-fueled action thriller Bulletproof follows two undercover cops, Bishop (Noel Clarke, Star Trek: Into Darkness) and Pike (Ashley Walters, Top Boy) as they chase down hardened criminals in London’s East End. Despite their differences, Bishop and Pike work brilliantly together even when the chemistry between them looks set to explode. Full of grit and sometimes gloss, Bulletproof is stylish and funny with entertaining, riveting criminal cases in each episode.”

It sounds like it’s right up my alley, although it feels like an odd fit for The CW. Whatever network it’s on, I can’t wait to give it a shot tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “Hit the Ground Running,” an informant is killed, leading Pike and Bishop to uncover a luxury car theft ring. When two members of the team are taken hostage, Bishop accidentally shoots Jonesy (David Elliot), but when he arrives at the ER to check on his mate, Bishop is the one who walks away wounded.

Check out this British import tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

One of my favorite people to watch on TV is Poppy Montgomery. I loved her in both Unforgettable & Without a Trace, so I’m thrilled to have her back in Reef Break. I also like Ray Stevenson (Babylon Fields, Rome, Saints & Strangers), and Desmond Chiam (Now Apocalypse) is quite good-looking. And I LOVE the premise of this new drama. Poppy plays Cat Chambers, former thief-turned-fixer for the governor of a stunning and seductive Pacific Island paradise. She’s impulsive, reckless, yet irresistible, and her past gives her an instinctive gift for understanding crime and criminals as she becomes involved in adventures and intrigue on the island paradise known as The Reef. The show also stars Melissa Bonne (Pulse) and Australian actress Tamala Shelton.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when former thief Cat Chambers returns home to the Pacific island paradise known as The Reef, she finds herself in the center of a kidnapping, when the daughter of the island’s most prominent resident goes missing.

Meet Cat in paradise tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’m so excited because tonight is the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance. It’s hard to believe it’s the 16th season, but it is! It started in July 2005 – almost exactly 15 years ago. Crazy. This season, Cat, Nigel, and Mary are back. This go round, they’re joined by Laurieann Gibson, Lady Gaga’s longtime choreographer and creative director, and SYTYCD alum Dominic “D-Trix” Sandoval. Dominic was one of my favorites on his season, way back to season 3. He’s got a huge personality and seems like a sweet guy, so I’m excited to have him back on the judging panel.

On tonight’s episode, “Judges Audition #1,” the first round of auditions begins.

Don’t miss out on the fun tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Best Baker in America & Wedding Cake Championship.

Tonight, the second season of FOX’s first-responder drama 9-1-1 comes to a close. In last week’s episode, Chimney took over as interim captain while Bobby remained suspended from the LAFD, and his first call was to help save a man from drowning in a vat of chocolate. Meanwhile, Maddie decided she wanted to quit her job as a 911 operator, believing that she wasn’t really helping anyone. However, her boss arranged for a surprise visit from many of the would-be victims she helped to save, in hopes of changing her mind.

Over the past few episodes, Eddie’s wife Shannon had returned to bond with their son Christopher. However, in this episode, she realized she was still not ready to be a mother to her son and suggested that she and Eddie get a divorce. However, she later turned up in a major accident and died on the scene. As the episode ended, the team had just recently been sent on a call for a mail bomb, when Bobby and Athena saw a TV news report of a second mail bomb. With a serial bomber on the loose, should we be worried about losing one of our favorite characters in tonight’s finale?!

I really enjoy the fast-paced nature of this show, and the calls the team responds to are always out of the ordinary and sometimes somewhat amusing. The series also does an excellent job mixing in character-centric episodes to give us back stories on the main characters and help us to understand their motivations and get to know their personal lives. The series has already been picked up for a third season, and FOX just announced a spin-off starring Robe Lowe, 9-1-1: Lone Star, so there’s plenty more to come!

On tonight’s finale, “This Life We Choose,” a stunt driver is caught in a hairy situation; a teenage social influencer is bugging out; the city is on high alert after two mail bombs go off; Eddie’s family comes to town; Buck faces a life-or-death situation.

To see if anyone’s life is in danger at the end of the season tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Fix, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow, and Chernobyl.

For the last four years, I have affectionately referred to Gotham as my favorite #SlowMoSharkJump, and it has been a great cheeky ride, but tonight our allegorical Arthur Fonzarelli crashes down to the water on those jet skis when the series finale airs. From the start this has been a tale about a select set of Batman characters: Bruce Wayne, Alfred, Jim Gordon, The Penguin, The Riddler, & Selina Kyle…who will become Catwoman. This core crew lasted from the pilot to now as we saw in last week’s penultimate episode, wherein they united to face down Bane and Nyssa al Ghul and the army they have co-opted control of.

Bruce tried to use the Joker’s old bombs to corner the army, but that did not cut them off from the Green Zone. Jim & Selina rescued Barbara and the baby from Nyssa, and he tried to have them all escape through tunnels. When Bane’s army showed up to kill Jim, the refugees stood in the way and the army refused to kill innocents. In the aftermath of this battle, Gotham was ready to rebuild. Penguin & Riddler vowed to be great villains again as Gordon was finally made Police Commissioner. Bruce left Gotham, seeking some sort of solace, leaving Selina only a note. She tried to head him off at the airport but failed.

Honestly, this could have been the last episode, but they wanted to fast forward the tale to when Bruce is fully Batman, hence tonight. I think we move into the future a few years, so maybe now the same gawky teen Bruce Wayne we’ve endured for years. I can’t wait either way and am mega-sad to see this show go. Guess we have Batwoman to look forward to at least!

On tonight’s episode, “The Beginning…” the series flash-forwards 10 years into the future, as Bruce is set to return to Gotham for the opening of the new Wayne Tower. A series of crimes leads Gordon to believe Penguin and the Riddler are up to their old tricks. However, when Bullock is framed for a murder, Gordon begins to piece together an even more sinister plot targeting the city, and a new figure emerges from the shadows to be the hero Gotham desperately needs.

Meet the new Batman on tonight’s series finale on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching the season finale of The Orville, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.
