If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/1/17

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!

Last week’s B story on SEAL Team was kind of heartbreaking. Stella invited Clay to a party, and he took Brian with him. After the party, Clay and Stella spent the night together, and Brian, who’d worn a gaudy “cowboy” shirt to the party, got lucky with another young woman. The next morning, they were called in early to practice parachute jumping. Clay and Brian were in different jump groups. Clay and his group watched in horror from the ground as Brian’s group did their jump and one jumper had problems with their chute. The backup chute never deployed, and that jumper slammed into the ground full-speed. As Clay watched, every jumper pulled off their helmet…and he realized the one who’d fallen to his death had been Brian. We’d learned a few episodes ago that he & Brian had been friends for a good while, so Clay’s easy-to-see heartbreak was not a surprise. Hopefully this will be the impetus he needs to shape up and really make him do well during the rest of the training/testing.

As for the A story… Jason and the team were sent to an American Embassy in the South Sudan when the ambassador refused to evacuate as the country became increasingly unstable. Sure, he could have refused because he believed absolutely that staying was the right thing to do, but the only reason this guy refused to leave was all due to politics. Leaving would be a “failure” on his part and that wouldn’t be good when it came time for him to be permanently appointed (or whatever). The guy was a complete asshat, but the team finally convinced him to leave for the safety of the rest of the Americans in the small country. It was touch and go getting everyone out of the embassy safely, but with a little trickery, they were able to do it.

I’m enjoying this show more and more every episode, especially when they don’t use any fancy camera work to show us the night vision, etc, like they did the first ep. It still isn’t better than The Brave in terms of characters, but I’m enjoying it! I can’t wait to see how Brian’s death affects Clay going forward and if that shared loss of a friend/teammate gives him and Jason something more in common.

On tonight’s episode, “The Spinning Wheel,” the SEAL Team must work with Jason’s longtime rival, Beau Fuller (Sharif Atkins, White Collar, ER), and his team to plan and perfect a raid under the watchful eye of top military brass. Also, Clay delivers solemn news to a teammate’s next of kin.

See how well Jason and the team work with Fuller and his team tonight on CBS 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, American Housewife, Best Baker in America, Chicago PD, & Criminal Minds.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/2/16

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!

John C. McGinley, Deborah Baker Jr.Tonight, the new horror-comedy series Stan Against Evil premieres on IFC. Sheriff Stan Miller (John C. McGinley, Scrubs, Ground Floor) is forced into retirement after an uncontrolled outburst. However, a plague of angry demons falls upon the small New Hampshire town, which was built on a 17th century witch-burning site. So he begrudgingly teams up with his young replacement, Evie Barret (Janet Varney, You’re the Worst) to keep the evil forces at bay. The series is written by comedian Dana Gould and also stars Nate Mooney (American Odyssey) and Deborah Baker Jr.

I haven’t seen this series yet, but I really like John C. McGinley, who is perfect for this kind of gruff, bitter-guy role. And based on the promos, it looks like this series will contain that same fun mix of horror and comedy that makes shows like Ash vs Evil Dead so entertaining. I can’t wait to check out tonight’s special one-hour premiere.

On tonight’s premiere, “Dig Me Up Dig Me Down; Know, Know, Know Your Goat,” a disgraced small-town sheriff teams with his replacement to battle demons. Then Stan’s daughter brings home a goat that is really an ancient hircine demon.

Catch the one-hour series premiere tonight on IFC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, Blindspot, Lethal Weapon, Empire, Arrow, Frequency, Worst Cooks in America, You’re the Worst, Younger, and Impastor.
