If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/26/18

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 #1

Tonight, NBC kicks off the new dramedy Good Girls, which follows three suburban mothers who decide to fix their financial problems by robbing a grocery store. Beth Boland (Christina Hendricks, Mad Men) discovers that her husband, car dealership owner Dean (Matthew Lillard, Twin Peaks, Bosch), has been both cheating on her and has been lying about the family’s devastating financial situation for years. Her younger sister Annie’s (Mae Whitman, Parenthood) ex is demanding custody of their daughter Sadie (Izzy Stannard, Brad’s Status) and she needs money to hire a lawyer. And friend Ruby (Retta, Parks and Recreation) and her security guard husband Stan (Reno Wilson, Mike & Molly) are in desperate need of money to pay for their daughter’s kidney treatments. Fed up with their situations, the women break bad and rob the local grocery store where Annie works, hoping to get $30K to ease their money problems. However, their situation becomes a lot more complicated when they discover they got more than they bargained for and are now wrapped up in a dangerous situation involving the head of a local crime gang, Rio (Manny Montana, Graceland).

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. The cast is great and really play well off one another, and the pilot does a good job of establishing the characters’ relationships and motivations. The series feels much like Big Little Lies meets Breaking Bad. You’ve got the dark secrets these suburban moms are dealing with that ultimately cause them to do really bad things in the name of helping out their families. The series has this nice blend of drama and humor. The women forced to do some unexpected things, and while they initially have good intentions, things quickly get out of hand and desperation takes over. I look forward to seeing what other twists and turns happen over the course of the season and if/how these women are about to get out of the situation they’ve managed to get themselves into. Will be see them go full-on Walter White by the end of the season, or will they find a way to still remain good people at heart?

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a trio of desperate suburban moms decide that being good never got them anywhere and rob a supermarket in order to get a little cash to help them and their families out. Unfortunately, the supermarket is already the territory of a local gang, and the women soon find themselves in hot water.

Meet the three moms who take on more than they bargained for tonight on NBC at 10/9c.
