If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/21/17

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!

Tonight, FOX kicks off the fourth season of the gritty Batman drama Gotham. As the third season came to a close, there was a bit of a power struggle, with Barbara, Penguin, and even a resurrected Fish Mooney, all looking to gain control of the city. The Tetch virus was running through the city, and whichever one of them located Strange’s antidote first would control Gotham. Jim Gordon had become infected with the virus, so he, too, was after the cure to save himself and Lee. With Harvey’s help, he managed to procure two vials of the antidote, but Lee was less than thrilled to receive the cure — she had been enjoying the sense of power the virus had given her. Meanwhile, Bruce was off on his own journey of self-discovery, being brainwashed by Ra’s al Ghul. And Penguin was a bit distracted by his rivalry with Ed Nygma, which ended with Mr. Freeze putting The Riddler on ice. Penguin placed his frozen rival in his tavern as a centerpiece as he debated the most advantageous way to make use of a thawed Nygma.

The first half of fourth season is subtitled “A Dark Knight.” That means we’ll finally be seeing Bruce don a costume and heading out into the streets of Gotham to dole out vigilante justice. It looks like we’re in for another exciting season with the introduction of some more familiar villains, such as Scarecrow. I’m looking forward to seeing how the season plays out as Bruce finally becomes the masked hero we’ve been waiting for!

On tonight’s fourth season premiere, “Pax Penuina,” Gordon fears Jonathan Crane is still alive and back in Gotham when the Scarecrow’s signature MO is used in a series of robberies. Meanwhile, Penguin’s “licensing” of crime in the city backfires during the grand opening of his new Iceberg Lounge; and, in the aftermath of his encounter with Ra’s Al Ghul, Bruce begins his vigilante watch.

Don’t miss tonight’s premiere on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Orville, Flipping Out, Nathan for You, and The Guest Book.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/3/17

I’ve been excited about tonight’s premiere of The Guest Book since I first heard about it. It comes from Greg Garcia, who also created & executive produced Raising Hope & My Name is Earl, both of which I adored. The premise of this show came from Garcia’s habit of writing fictional stories in the guest books of various rental cabins in order to freak out the next renters. Now these stories are coming to TBS. It’s a bit different than a normal comedy. While the house and characters living in the small mountain town remain the same, each episode will feature a different set of vacationing guests, along with a different story. So much fun and will allow for some fantastic guest stars!

The regular and recurring cast members include Kellie Martin (Army Wives) as Officer Kimberly Leahy, Charlie Robinson (Hart of Dixie) as Wilfrid, Aloma Wright (Suits) as Emma, Carly Jibson (Broadway’s Hairspray) as Vivian, and Frank, played by Lou Wilson (Tween Fest). Rounding out the first season cast is Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope) as Andrew, Laura Bell Bundy (Scream Queens) as Jessica, and Eddie Steeples (My Name is Earl) as Eddie.

On tonight’s first episode, “Story One,” months after having a kid, Tim, a middle-school science teacher, books the cabin to spice up his sex life with his wife Sandy, but when things take an unexpected turn, Tim finds himself way over his head in a criminal conspiracy.

Then on the second episode, “Story Two,” devout mother Jill is annoyed that her son Ethan has brought his atheist fiancée Lynn to the cabin for a family getaway.

Don’t miss the hilarious double-episode premiere tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Love Connection, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Beat Bobby Flay, & Incredible Jokers.
