If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/15/17

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, Showtime kicks off the new comedy series White Famous, which centers around the exploits of rising black comedian Floyd Mooney (Jay Pharoah, SNL) as he deals with career and relationship issues. Floyd is still in love with ex/baby mama Sadie (Cleopatra Coleman, The Last Man on Earth), and the two still hook up on occasion. Floyd also has a great relationship with son Trevor (Lonnie Chavis) and is an active and present father to him. However, Floyd now lives with best friend Ron Balls (Jacob Ming Trent, Feed the Beast), who often serves as his voice of reason. Meanwhile, Floyd’s ambitious manager Malcolm (Utkarsh Ambudkar, The Mindy Project) is constantly looking for the next big opportunity to help his client to become “white famous” – so famous that he transcends color.

The series has a nice blend of humor and interesting character drama. The pilot does a great job of introducing the characters and relationships and has some really fun moments. Jay Pharoah was always great at doing impressions on SNL, and they’ve found an organic way to work his comedy and impressions into the show. Plus, if the premiere is any indication, this series is going to have a great supporting cast – tonight’s 1-hour premiere features Stephen Tobolowsky and Jamie Foxx. The main criticism I have of the show is its excessive language – there are so many F-bombs dropped in this first hour!

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” a racially-charged encounter with a film producer goes viral, presenting an opportunity to a young comic, if he is willing to bend his principles. Then, in “Heat,” Malcolm pushes Floyd to commit to his next project; Trevor tours an expensive private school; Sadie comes clean about a relationship.

Don’t miss the premiere of the latest TV comedy tonight on Showtime at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Ten Days in the Valley, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Ghosted, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Fear the Walking Dead, Good Behavior, and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/3/14

October is here, bringing with it beautiful colors, pumpkin spice lattes, and my favorite part: cooler temperatures. Fall weather is simply the most gorgeous of all seasons in my opinion. Bring on the chilly, crisp nights and the mild days. What it also brings is more new television, so let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice

hawaiifiveo103smallWell, my TV romance has been rekindled with season five of Hawaii Five-0 kicking off last week, and what a delicious episode it was. I know, I know… It is possible that I may be a little biased and slightly deranged when it comes to my love of Alex O’Loughlin and this show, but honestly, I don’t care. The opening scene of Danny and McGarrett doing therapy was fantastic and made my week! The other part that really made the episode for me was the way the writers have seemed to learn how to balance the episode and give all the characters story arcs. Adam proposed to Kono, but we don’t know if she really wants to accept, but we do know she’s very scared of losing him. Having more of Jerry (Jorge Garcia) around as the resident conspiracy theorist is never a bad thing in my opinion because he is amusing and beneficial at the same time. What I’m not looking forward to is not having Catherine around yet—when will she be back? I want to see more of the chivalric side of McGarrett, like that scene from last season when he carried her down the stairs. (Confession: It is very possible that in my deluded head, I was dreaming he was actually carrying me…even though I am far from the size of Catherine and he’d be very winded carrying my chubby ass—nonetheless, a girl can dream.) Regardless of the lack of Catherine and opportunities to daydream, I am very pleased and excited that the show is back, and I’m looking forward to seeing what this season brings.

On tonight’s episode, “Ka Makuakane (Family Man),” Five-0 investigates when the young daughter of a Navy Seal currently on a top-secret mission is kidnapped. Meanwhile, with his brother’s life on the line, Danny must locate the $18.5 million he owes his captors.

To see if Danny can come to the rescue, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, Shark Tank, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, and Z Nation.
