My favorite new show so far this season is NBC’s The Brave. I’m loving Mike Vogel as Dalton, but the dynamic of the whole team together is great. The premise is a lot of fun too. I’ve loved last week’s episode, where a bad-ass female CIA officer walked into the undercover CIA office in the Russian-stronghold portion of Ukraine to find her two coworkers shot to death and bad guys still in the office. She ended up taking them all out herself even after being shot. During the hour, she was kidnapped and stabbed, but she rocked it, able to keep herself pretty damn safe until Dalton and his team arrived. We also learned a surprising fact about Noah, in that he was top of his class at “spy school.” One thing I was disappointed about was that after the major cliffhanger of the premiere, where the bad guy drove the truck bomb onto the beach where the team had been hanging out and playing soccer with the kids, we didn’t jump back into that story line. In fact, we only got one mention of it at all, where we learned that there had been deaths and injuries of some of the civilians. It was kind of a letdown. Other than that, I’m really enjoying the show, as is my family.

On tonight’s episode, “The Greater Good,” after receiving intel that a serious player in dealing international arms, Ranier Boothe (guest star Andrew Howard), will be visiting Caborca, Mexico, Patricia makes a controversial decision that could lead to a big breakthrough. With Dalton’s team on the ground, they must find a weak link in Boothe’s men in order to carry out the mission. Meanwhile, Noah learns about Hannah’s complicated past in the field.

Find out more about Hannah’s past and see if Dalton’s team can take down some arms dealers tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, 9JKL, The Gifted, Halloween Baking Championship, Halloween Wars, Scorpion, & The Good Doctor.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/25/17

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!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I think my favorite pilot that I got to watch over the summer was NBC’s The Brave, which is why it’s my first pick tonight. Avi Nir, an executive producer of Homeland, is also the executive producer of this one, and even though I didn’t watch Homeland, I know that at least the first handful of seasons it was very popular and a lot of people considered it a great show. So I have high hopes for this one as well. Considering it’s a procedural about the “complex world of America’s elite undercover military heroes,” (in NBC’s words), it’s going to be right up my alley. Also, trust me when I say you don’t want to miss a minute of the action…including the very last minute of the episode!

Anne Heche plays D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell. She and her team of analysts in Washington, D.C., have at the fingertips the world’s most advanced surveillance technology. Adam Dalton, played by Mike Vogel (Under the Dome) leads a Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists. Their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom helps them to save the lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world. It also stars Tate Ellington (Noah Morgenthau), Demetrius Grosse (Ezekiel “Preach” Carter), Natacha Karam (Jasmine “Jaz” Khan), Noah Mills (Joseph “McG” McGuire), Sofia Pernas (Hannah Rivera), and Hadi Tabbal (Amir Al-Raisani).

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when American doctor Kimberley Wells (guest star Alix Wilton-Regan) gets kidnapped by a group with terrorist ties, Captain Adam Dalton and his squad must take action and stop at nothing to save her. Across the world, D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell and her team of analysts guide Dalton along the way through as the group learns that Wells’s disappearance might have ties to something that could be catastrophic.

Don’t miss the exciting premiere tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.
