If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/7/17

Tonight, after three years, Psych returns to USA Network with Psych: The Movie! For eight seasons (and a musical) we followed the adventures of fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer (James Roday) and his slightly more serious best friend Gus (Dulé Hill). As the series ended, it was finally time for Shawn and Gus to go their separate ways. Gus had found his dream job, and Shawn had moved to San Francisco, where girlfriend Juliet (Maggie Lawson) and Chief Vick (Kirsten Nelson) had already relocated. Shawn planned to open up a new detective agency, and to his surprise, Gus had quit his job and also headed to San Francisco. Shawn finally proposed to Juliet, but as he was handing her the ring, someone grabbed it and ran off.

So, what has happened in the three years since we last saw these characters? Did Juliet say yes? Are she and Shawn married? Are Shawn and Gus back to their old psychic detective tricks? Psych is one of my all-time favorite shows. I can re-watch episodes anytime and still laugh out loud. While TV is getting darker and grittier these days, this series was from USA Network’s lighter, blue sky programming era. It was so smartly written, with lots humor and fun pop culture references mixed in. The buddy relationship between Shawn and Gus is what all friendships should be like! I haven’t seen the film yet, so I’m just as excited as all the other Psych-O’s out there to see what this new adventure holds. I’m sure it’s going to be a hilarious, fun ride, and I hope this is just one of many Psych movies to come!

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, I got the opportunity to speak with the cast. They talked about what it was like returning to their characters, and they gave some hints as to what we can expect from tonight’s movie, including some of the amazing guest stars. You can find my videos from the press room at NoReruns.net. (http://www.noreruns.net/2017/08/15/psych-movie-press-room-san-diego-comic-con-2017/)

On tonight’s movie, after three years, the gang reunite when an assailant targets one of their own.

Catch up with Shawn & the gang tonight on USA Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Great American Baking Show, The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Life in Pieces, Gotham, The Orville, Top Chef, Van Helsing, Ghost Wars, and Chrisley Knows Best.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/1/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice

topchef2016smallIt took me a good handful of seasons to start watching Top Chef, but I haven’t missed any episode since, which means I’m excited that it’s back tonight for the start of season 14! This season starts off in Charleston, South Carolina, where eight new chefs join eight returning chefs to compete for the grand prize of $125,000 and the title of Top Chef. This season’s new chefs come from all over, from Portland, Oregon, to Florida and New York City. The returning chefs feature some big names, especially if you’re a fan of this show: Sam Talbot from Season 2; Casey Thompson from Season 3 & Season 8: All-Stars; Amanda Baumgarten from Season 7; Brooke Williamson, Sheldon Simeon, & John Tesar from Season 10; Shirley Chung from Season 11; & Katsuji Tanabe from Season 12.

My personal pick? I love Brooke, Shirley, & Katsuji, so…we’ll see how the newbies stack up against them! Also, I’m happy that Graham Elliot (former judge on MasterChef and competitor on Top Chef Masters) is joining Tom, Gail, and Padma, as well as all the great guest judges, Richard Blais, Michael Voltaggio, Hugh Acheson, & more.

On tonight’s episode, “Something Old, Something New,” the new chefs enter the kitchen first to cook as many dishes as possible in one hour using a whole chicken; the veterans square off to re-imagine shrimp and grits.

To see which chef gets taken out first, tune in to Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Rosewood, The Great Indoors, Chopped, The Great American Baking Show, & Beat Bobby Flay.
