If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/25/18

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, AMC’s The Walking Dead returns for the second half of its eighth season. As the first half of the season came to a close, the Saviors retaliated in full force, doing devastating damage to our combined force of good guys. They stopped Maggie and her Hilltop caravan, killed one of the citizens as a show of force to get Maggie back in line, and sent her back to the Hilltop to keep producing their crops/food supply. In the Kingdom, Ezekiel set fires to buy his people some time to escape, before turning himself over to the Saviors. And Dwight stuck to his agreement, helping lure some of the Saviors into a trap that Daryl and Rosita had set but blowing his cover in the process. Meanwhile, Negan and his men attacked and burned Alexandria to the ground. Negan was out for vengeance, and Carl offered himself up as a sacrifice, but Negan wasn’t having any of that. Carl and the others managed to escape the town as it burned via the sewers. However, at the end of the episode we (and Rick) discovered why Carl was so willing to offer himself up — he had been bitten and it was now only a matter of time before he would join the ranks of the undead.

Will they really kill off Carl? (This seems highly likely, despite the showrunner’s recent backpedaling.) And if so, what does this mean for Rick? This whole series started with Rick’s desperate search to find his son — how will Rick change without this driving force in his life? And how will the rest of the group be affected by the loss of Carl? How will Dwight fit into the group now that he can’t go back to the Saviors? Will Eugene ever man up and do the right thing, or will he continue to stick with the Saviors? And will our group ever manage to kill Negan?! I can’t say that I wasn’t extremely disappointed with the way the first half of the season ended — I’ve kind of been disappointed with the series as a whole ever since the arrival of Negan. I really hope the series can course correct in this second half of the season and become the great show it once was. And if this is his final episode, I hope that Carl gets a great send-off and that he can make one final big move on his way out that helps our group.

On tonight’s midseason premiere, “Honor,” Rick faces new difficulties after a battle. Meanwhile, the fight continues in other communities as core members face hard decisions.

See how the group fares tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Celebrity Big Brother, A.P. Bio, Worst Cooks in America, Crashing, and Counterpart.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/12/16

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!

Megan’s Choice

shannarachronicles2016smallIt may seem at times that all I watch is procedurals or cooking shows, but that’s not true. I am also a sucker for a good fantasy show, and The Shannara Chronicles has definitely caught my interest. It has adventure, magic, and unlikely heroes, all of which make for a fantastic series, not to mention it’s based off a bestselling book series written by the talented Terry Brooks.

In case you missed last week’s 2-hour premiere, here’s a brief rundown so you can easily catch up this week. The show takes place in a magical land known as the Four Lands, eons after the fall of humans. There is a special Elvish tree, Ellcrys, which protects the land from the demon world, but unfortunately it is dying. This sets the trio of Amberle, Wil Ohmsford, and Allanon on a quest to find a new, safe home for the tree before the boundary between the worlds is completely dissolved, bringing an unstoppable demon army into the Four Lands.

If you are a fan of fantasy and adventure, then you simply must tune into watch this show!

On last week’s episode, we got to know the characters and watched as the tree was found to be sick and the trio was formed. There were demons and love stories along with great fight scenes. If it wasn’t exciting enough for you, then you need to re-evaluate your idea of excitement.

On tonight’s episode, “Fury,” Wil and Amberle are kidnapped by Eretria and Cephalo while returning to the palace. But the Rovers are the least of their worries. Wil must learn how to use the Elfstones before a bloodthirsty Fury kills them all.

To see if this unlikely group can defeat the Fury, tune in to MTV at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Teen Wolf, Chopped, and New Girl.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/22/13

Gotta love the flu that’s going around. We’re all well here in my house, but Megan’s poor baby is sick, so she’s taking the day off. Kyle is still gone on vacation, so it’s up to JJ and me to tell you what we think you should be watching on this chilly Tuesday. 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

flashpoint123smallTonight is the series finale of Flashpoint. I’m so very sad about that because I’ve loved it from the very beginning. I’m thrilled they found a way to let Jules and Sam be happy and together. I like that Ed has finally been getting help for the stress of his job and his having to shoot the teenage girl earlier in the season and that his son is beginning to come around to realizing why his dad has been behaving the way he has. I love Greg’s son and that he seems to be a good kid and wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps. I wish we’d gotten to see Wordy more lately, and I still have hopes that Spike and Winnie will get together. It’s not too late…right? LOL

Part one of the finale aired last week, but I didn’t want to watch before part two tonight. I’m scared that something bad will happen to one of the beloved members of the team. I will cross my fingers that everyone comes out of this okay. I’ll miss the show terribly, and honestly, I may end up buying it all on DVD because I love it that much. *sigh* Here’s hoping Enrico Colantoni, Amy Jo Johnson, David Paetkau, and the rest of the cast find another great show soon!

On tonight’s episode, “Keep the Peace, Part Two,” a series of bombs in public buildings tear the city apart with terror as Team One hunts down the bomber and rescues civilians. In Team One’s final showdown, tragedy and triumph collide as peace is kept at a painful cost.

Don’t miss the exciting drama tonight on ION at 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/12

You know how slow last night was because of football, baseball, and the presidential debate? Tonight more than makes up for it. It’s a crazy-busy night of television, but we’re determined to let you know what we think you should be watching. So take a look and see if we can help you narrow it down. 😉

Jenny’s Choice

I waffled back and forth on what to pick tonight because there’s so much on. Did I want to go comedy, with Raising Hope or Ben and Kate, both of which I adore? Or did I want to go drama, with one of the NCIS shows? In the end, I’m choosing Flashpoint again this week. Last week’s season premiere was absolutely heartbreaking. The entire team took it so hard when Ed had to shoot the young woman who was threatening & trying to shoot her abusive, psycho father. Ed was strong in front of the team, but once he was home, he let it all hit him and showed how much it had affected him. Everyone was upset, but Raf seemed to be taking it the hardest back at the office. I thought he quit because they said they couldn’t do it differently next time, that when they shoot like Ed did, they can’t shoot to wound or maim. But from pictures of next week’s ep, he’s in there…so maybe he didn’t quit? I dunno. I hope not. I like him…although not as much as I like Sam. (What is it about Canadian cop shows & sexy characters named Sam?! Megan, any ideas? LOL)

On tonight’s episode, “No Kind of Life,” a gunpoint abduction at a doctor’s office puts Team One on a collision course with a desperate felon as his bleeding son’s life rests in Sam’s hands.

Don’t miss the pulse-pounding action tonight on ION at 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Raising Hope, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Vegas, Happy Endings, The New Normal, Dancing with the Stars, Ben and Kate, 19 Kids & Counting, Chopped, Covert Affairs, Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S., & Sons of Anarchy.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/12

It’s a bit of a slower night tonight because of the political debate. I’ll be SO glad when November has come and gone. I’m so tired of politics and all the crap that goes with it—especially all the ads on TV and making me miss shows! *grump* Even so, there’s some great stuff on tonight (including the return of Covert Affairs, which is reaching high points in drama!), so check out what we think you should be watching, and be sure to let us know if you’re going to take our genius advice. 😉

I’m particularly excited about tonight’s season premiere of Flashpoint on ION. It started airing a few weeks ago in Canada (lucky Megan!), but for the US viewers, tonight’s our first chance to get a look at the team after last season’s tense finale. Poor Parker has been put through the wringer emotionally. Team One’s leader was having problems in his personal life, but he’s finally begun mending fences with his teenage son. The relationship between Sam and Jules was discovered, and we thought they might be told they had to split—either personally or professionally—but at the end of the finale, Parker gave them the news that they were able to stay together and stay on Team One, which is awesome. Ed is still working on the team, and things with his wife are better than they were. The finale left off with the team and their families at the annual team picnic, where everything was great. Even Wordy was there. I hope that doesn’t mean bad things are headed our way for season five… Eek!

On tonight’s premiere, “A Broken Peace,” with help from the fugitive’s daughter, Team One searches the city in pursuit of James Mitchell, an armed and extremely volatile man who is hunting his ex-wife. Ed is forced to take a tragic shot that he was not prepared to take.
