If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/27/15

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

sirens127smallTonight, the USA Network comedy series Sirens is back for the start of its second season. The series follows the exploits and misadventures of three Chicago EMTs on the job and in their personal lives. When we last left off, Johnny’s girlfriend Theresa had decided to take a job with the FBI in Washington, which made Johnny realize how much he would miss her, so he proposed. The two attempted to get married, but everything that could have gone wrong did — there was bickering in-laws, an illegal cock-fighting ring in the church basement, a priest who couldn’t stop quoting Kevin Costner, and Hank fooling around with the priest’s son! In the end, Johnny and Theresa decided not to go through with the wedding and instead took the smaller step of moving in with one another.

Will Johnny and Theresa’s relationship last this time around? And how will their new status affect the dynamic of the group? This show is always a lot of fun, and I especially enjoy the scenes when the guys are giving each other a hard time. I’m looking forward to another season of raucous, politically-incorrect fun and humor.

On tonight’s first episode, “Superdick,” Johnny finds a perfect apartment to share with Theresa thanks to a landlord with a nut allergy. In other events, Brian struggles with his platonic love affair with Voodoo; Billy begins dating Theresa’s sister; and Hank wonders if he’ll ever find love. And then in “Johnny Nightingale,” Johnny deals with an overly grateful patient; and Brian agrees to take an injured young woman to her prom.

Enjoy the start of the new season tonight on USA Network at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording CSI, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Parks and Recreation, Marry Me, About a Boy, MasterChef: Junior, The Flash, Supernatural, Switched at Birth, Justified, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Cougar Town, Face Off, Sons of Liberty, and Kroll Show.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/6/14

It’s insane how much new TV is on these days—and it always feels like I am in a hopeless battle to keep up with all of it! While the last thing I need is to do is add even more new shows to my already 95+% full TiVo, we’ve got a couple of them among our suggestions of what you should check out tonight!

sirenssmallTonight, USA Network adds the new comedy series Sirens to its schedule. The series follows a group of talented-but-immature Chicago EMTs whose skills at saving people in their ambulance haven’t really extended to saving their own relationships. Police officer Theresa (Jessica McNamee) broke up with her sports-loving EMT boyfriend Johnny (Michael Mosley) due to his inability to commit. Now Johnny drives in an ambulance along with his all-knowing best friend Hank (Kevin Daniels) and wide-eyed rookie Brian (Kevin Bigley), who still lives with his parents.

The premise sounds ripe for humor—and with Denis Leary as one of the execuive producers, I have high hopes that this show will be a lot of fun. It’s been a really long time since USA has had an original 30-minute comedy series, but with reruns of Modern Family doing so well for the network, it seems like the right time to try again.

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” Johnny sees Theresa for the first time since taking a break from their relationship, while Hank decides who to list as his emergency contact. And in the second episode, “A Bitch Named Karma,” the guys enter a heady discussion about karma after lightning strikes at a church picnic, while a scheduling conflict leaves them obligated to educate children about CPR on the same day as a big football game.

Check out this original new comedy tonight on USA Network at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Grey’s Anatomy, Community, Parks and Recreation, Hollywood Game Night, Parenthood, Chopped Canada, King of the Nerds, Suits, Vikings, Review, Portlandia, and The Red Road.
