If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/1/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice #1

wynonnaearp41smallThere’s a new show starting tonight on Syfy that could either be fun or really ridiculous. I’m hoping for the first. And it may seem like an April Fools’ Day prank, but it isn’t… Wynonna Earp follows Wyatt Earp’s great-granddaughter as she battles demons and other creatures. After years away, Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano, Damien, The Listener, Being Erica) has traveled back to her home town of Purgatory to reluctantly take on the role destined for Wyatt Earp’s heir: Demon protector. Her enemy: Revenants, the resurrected (and twisted) souls of the criminals Wyatt Earp once took down. Working alongside Wynonna is her sister Waverely (Dominique Provost-Chalkley), who has an obsession with their family’s legacy and is more than a little bitter that she wasn’t chosen as the heir to take over the family business; associate Agent Dolls (Shamier Anderson, The Next Step), an all-business straight shooter; and Wyatt’s cursed-with-immortality-best-friend Doc Holliday (Tim Rozon, Schitt’s Creek, Being Human, Lost Girl, Instant Star), a man with a thirst for revenge and on a mission to rectify the past. They must try to stop the Revenants from taking over the town – and escaping into the world.

Like I said, this could be a lot of fun or just silly enough to be stupid. But the premise is interesting, so it’s worth a shot to figure out if you’ll enjoy it or not!

On tonight’s episode, “Purgatory,” on her 27th birthday, Wynonna Earp reluctantly returns home to take on her family’s legendary curse.

Meet Wynonna and the rest of the Revenant-hunting gang tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/27/14

Well, we’re all still sick. Fun stuff. I feel like, well, poo, so let’s just get to it, shall we? Megan’s power went out Tuesday night when a storm knocked out some wires, so here’s what Kyle & I are recommending.

Jenny’s Choice

motive2014asmallI picked Motive last week, and it turned out to be a great episode. The case was interesting—a professor/wannabe writer killed an author who was responsible for turning down his submitted manuscript. He used chemistry to make a poison that he then inserted into the victim’s perfume when he broke into her house. Without meaning to, he set up the husband when it turned out not only the author was killed, but her lover got sick from exposure as well—dying a slower, yet painful death. Then the killer tried to set up a student of his who was a huge fan of the author’s, but the police were able to determine who really killed her—and justice was honestly served when it turned out he’d exposed himself to the poison and was dying. Meanwhile, Angie was struggling with the fact that she was subpoenaed to testify against Cross, and Vega knew just what she needed and set it up so her son surprised her with a visit.

Tonight is the season finale, and I’m anxious to see what’s going to happen with the trial. There’s no show without Angie Flynn, so she can’t get fired, but how does she make it out of and still keep her detective position? Will Cross be back next season? So many questions!

On tonight’s episode, “For You I Die,” with the League of Nations trial nearing, a major case from Detective Flynn and Sergeant Cross’s past resurfaces, and the fallout causes anguish for both. Meanwhile, the latest case involving the murder of a prosecutor becomes personal for Cross, and Angie knows they must come clean about their past. Kenny Johnson (who’s been on what seems like everything… lol) guest stars.

To see how the trial goes for Det. Flynn & Sgt. Cross tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Penn & Teller: Fool Us, So You Think You Can Dance, Young & Hungry, Mystery Girls, America’s Got Talent, Property Brothers, Restaurant Stakeout, Rowhouse Showdown, Legends, Hot in Cleveland, Taxi Brooklyn, Mystery Diners, Top Chef Duels, & Wahlburgers.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/20/14

Here’s hoping my Wednesday will be better than my Tuesday was. My kiddo went to bed Monday night feeling a little sucky but not too bad…but woke up Tuesday morning feeling major sucky—sore throat, horrible hacking cough… Needless to say, he stayed home from school and slept all morning. Poor thing. 🙁 That did mean we got to catch up on some TV in the afternoon before he did some homework, though, so that’s not a bad thing. 🙂 Let’s see what Megan, Kyle, & I are recommending tonight so you have an idea of what to watch.

Jenny’s Choice

motive2014asmallMy pick tonight is the new episode of Motive. Last week was kind of heartbreaking. A skeezy (REALLY skeezy) real-estate developer was found dead. He was shot three times—twice with blanks, once with a live round. The killer(s) turned out to be three brothers who’d made a deal with the guy, who’d then backed out and kicked them out of their house and garage anyway—even after their little sister had…given herself to him to make a deal. Murder’s wrong, but damn, the guy was a creep. I felt really bad for the family. 🙁 Then at the end of the episode, Angie got notice that the defense was calling her to testify against Mark Cross. My question is…can she change her mind and testify for the prosecution, even though she’s already said no? It would mean lying, but…either way, she’ll have to lie, and she’s kind of screwed. Tonight’s the next to last episode of the season. I’m curious as to how it’s going to play out!

On tonight’s episode, “Kiss of Death,” after a best-selling murder mystery author is poisoned with a rare toxin, Detectives Flynn and Vega must determine fan from foe. Meanwhile, Detective Lucas’ personal life takes a hit, while Angie receives a pleasant surprise, courtesy of Vega. Enuka Okuma (Traci on Rookie Blue) guest stars!

See what surprise Vega gives Angie tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Penn & Teller: Fool Us, So You Think You Can Dance, Young & Hungry, Mystery Girls, America’s Got Talent, Property Brothers, Restaurant Stakeout, Rowhouse Showdown, Legends, Hot in Cleveland, Tiny House Nation, Taxi Brooklyn, Mystery Diners, Top Chef Duels, & Wahlburgers.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/11/14

It’s been a couple of days filled with sickness in my house, but I’m hoping it’s over now. One thing is for sure: I’m going to spend tonight on my couch with a blanket watching some good TV. Let’s see what we’re recommending to keep us all happy.

Megan’s Choice

sytycd2014smallWe’re a couple of weeks into this season of So You Think You Can Dance, and what a season it’s been so far. I loved having a dancer with the caliber of Fabrice Calmels on as a judge, because he brought a level of ballet expertise to the panel. However, as usual, Christina Applegate’s guest judge appearance was fabulous. She just lights up the screen, and the way she is moved by the dancers is phenomenal. Last week’s episode had me in tears again, so if that’s how this season continues to go, Kleenex is going to have a lot of sales world-wide.

On tonight’s episode, “Auditions #3,” the search for “America’s Favorite Dancer” heads to Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

To see how the dancers move us tonight, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The 100, Growing Up Fisher, Restaurant: Impossible, Graceland, Suits, and American Pickers.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/21/14

Looks like summer temperatures are starting to creep up on us finally, although where I am, I wish it would get a lot hotter so the blackfly season would be over. Those little pesky bugs are like clouds right now, which is making our yard work difficult. Let’s see what we’re recommending tonight to give me a reason to avoid the bugs.

Megan’s Choice

chicagopd521smallChicago PD has had a fantastic first season, and I’m sorry it’s time for it to go on hiatus already, because I am super invested in these characters. Voight is a badass, who may step over the line at times, but he really does have a good heart and he gets the job done. That said, I applaud Antonio and Halstead for not wanting Voight and Olinsky to kill Pulpo, even though realistically, he deserved it. I am really not very happy with Jin for being a rat for Internal Affairs, because I really like his character, but I hope that when Voight finds out, he understands that Jin is doing it to protect his dad. On another hand, Voight has already fired Sumner, thinking she was the mole, but I was so unhappy with whom he chose to replace her with. Voight announced that Atwater was Sumner’s replacement and not Burgess. When Burgess asks why it wasn’t her, Voight’s answer was that he doesn’t tolerate in-house romance. Well, screw him, because as far as officers go, Burgess deserved it way more and she has done her job, despite her involvement with Ruzek. Let’s see where it goes from here tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “A Beautiful Friendship,” Atwater settles nicely into his new job in intelligence; a desperate Lindsay confides in Voight.

To see what happens with Lindsay, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Modern Family, Law & Order: SVU, American Idol, The 100, and Save my Bakery.
