If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/19

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

It’s time for another big #OneChicago crossover event, and I couldn’t be more excited. There’s no need to do much of a recap, since I doubt any of the continuing story lines for each show will follow up this week, but there were some highlights. On Chicago Med, by the end of the episode, Maggie had given up the pretense of being okay. Looks like she’s going to move her treatments there to Med instead of across town, and she’s going to train April to do her job. She still isn’t telling anyone, but it’s a step in the right direction. Speaking of April… She & Dr. Marcel kind of got into it about a patient, but April found out at the end that Marcel hadn’t exactly done what she’d thought, so now she’s okay working with him – I hope he doesn’t come between her & Ethan, not when they’re in such a good place finally. And finally, Will & Natalie…& unfortunately Phillip. Natalie makes a mistake about a patient, and the parents ask for a new doctor for their son. Will takes over and tells her he’ll be overseeing all her cases until he’s sure she’s back to 100%. She thinks he’s punishing her for Phillip, and he kinda is. Not punishing, really, just not trusting either of them – Phillip because he’s a psychopath and Natalie because she’s suffering from the TBI and crazypants Phillips.

On Chicago Fire, the biggest story line was Brett and Foster treating a boy at a juvenile detention center who they believed to have been set up by a guard. And they were right. In the process of that, they met a cute young social worker, and he & Brett hit it off. The other big story lines were: 1) Mouch & Trudy going in together to buy in to Molly’s with Hermann. It was pretty heartwarming; 2) Boden chose Kidd to represent the district at a leadership conference, which shocked the heck out of her. She’ll kick ass, though, as she always does; And 3) Casey kind of hit it off with one of the reps who installed some new tech at the firehouse, but she was pretty wackadoodle. LOL

Finally, on Chicago PD, a botched carjacking turned out to be much more, involving a female drug kingpin who only worked with young women. Unfortunately for those young women, when one of them displeased her, she killed them (or had them killed). Newbie Vanessa Rojas struggled to fit in with Intelligence but eventually helped take the woman down.

And that brings us to this week. Crossovers can be hit or miss, but I think this one’s going to be a hit. From everything I’ve read, it seems like it’s truly going to be a crossover, with many characters from each show appearing in all the episodes, not just one or two in one of the other episodes. And they’re switch things up so that Chicago Fire is up first, followed by Med and then PD to bring up the rear as always.

On tonight’s episode of Chicago Fire, “Infection Part I,” a rare but deadly bacteria takes its toll on numerous victims around the city, leaving Chicago’s finest first responders to work together alongside the CDC to resolve the dangerous situation. Following a fire at a local university that ties into the outbreak, Severide has suspicions that something bigger is happening.

Then on tonight’s episode of Chicago Med, “Infection Part II,” an entire apartment complex is forced into quarantine when cases of the deadly virus turns into an epidemic. P.D. chases a lead that could point to a case of bioterrorism and Will gets dangerously close to the suspect.

And finally on tonight’s episode of Chicago PD, “Infection Part III,” a fter zeroing in on the suspect responsible for the bioterrorism that’s gripping Chicago, the PD prepares to undertake their biggest manhunt yet. Upton is torn between helping track down the perp and providing emotional support to the scared young girl that needs her. Voight fears his team is being sent on a wild goose chase.

Don’t miss the exciting “zombie apocalypse” crossover event tonight on NBC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Limetown, The Goldbergs, Schooled, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Nancy Drew, SEAL Team, Single Parents, S.W.A.T., & Stumptown.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/9/19

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!

Megan’s Choice

When I was a child, I spent many nights lying awake with a flashlight reading Nancy Drew books and picturing myself there helping her solve these mysteries…so I was ecstatic when I heard that The CW was going to have a show this season based on the teenage detective. Tonight is the premiere of Nancy Drew, and I am very interested to see if they can do my childhood favorite the justice it deserves.

Nancy (Kennedy McMann) is an intelligent teenage detective who solves mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine, but when her mother passes away suddenly, Nancy’s plans for college are put on hold. After her mother died, Nancy decided to stop solving crimes and trying to work toward re-applying to college, but a murder in town forces her into the detective life again. She not only decides to start trying to help solve the murder but finds herself a prime suspect along with four other teenagers who now must all team up to clear their names.

The other four people on the suspect list are Nancy’s nemesis from high school, George Fan (Leah Lewis); a rich girl with a mysterious past, Bess Marvin (Maddison Jaizani); Nancy’s secret boyfriend, Ned “Nick” Nickerson (Tunji Kasim); and amiable burnout Ace (Alex Saxon, The Fix). The show also stars Scott Wolf (The Night Shift, Party of Five, Everwood) as Nancy’s father, attorney Carson Drew; Alvina August as Detective Karen Hart, who is dating Carson; and Riley Smith (Frequency, Proven Innocent, Studio City, Drive) as Ryan Hudson…who I can’t find anything about, although I believe he is somehow related to the victim.

There is bound to be some exciting times with intense storylines and romantic moments.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” when a socialite is murdered, Nancy finds herself a prime suspect in the crime, along with a group of other teens present at the scene; the teens must team up to clear their own names.

To see if Nancy can help solve this murder and clear everyone’s names, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, The Masked Singer, Riverdale, SEAL Team, Almost Family, Guy’s Grocery Games, Stumptown, and S.W.A.T.
