If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/20/19

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 #1

Wednesday nights are always a favorite of mine because of it being #OneChicago night – and while Chicago Med isn’t always my top pick out of the three, lately there have been some interesting stories. Will and Natalie have broken up due to Will lying to her about the gun he was supposed to get rid of. Also, Will is jealous of the relationship she has built with a patient’s father. I have to admit I get where they are both coming from. Will has been acting a little erratic, but he has been through a lot, and in my opinion Natalie is definitely getting a little too close to the man who just lost his wife and is watching his baby fight for her life. Elsewhere, Rhodes is starting to be very concerned about Bekker’s mental stability when she seems to be going to extreme lengths to be with him. That woman is without a doubt coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs – she is willing to do some very questionable things just to have Rhodes, and that isn’t going to end well. Regardless of all this relationship drama, I am interested to see what medical emergencies we are faced with this week.

On tonight’s episode, “We Hold These Truths,” after witnessing a pick-up truck plow through a street fair, Natalie and Maggie are forced to make some tough decisions on the fly. The doctors and nurses of Chicago Med find themselves on high alert with the influx of patients arriving in need of aid. Dr. Charles’s ex-wife comes to town with news.

Find out if Natalie and Maggie can handle the difficult situation tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

Last week was the first time we’ve really seen Rossi vulnerable and almost completely defeated on Criminal Minds, and it was kind of heartbreaking to watch. When on a case, Rossi got surprised by the bad guy and was nearly killed. Thankfully, the guy let him live, even if it was for a “look where I had you; I could have killed you” reason. The shocker for me was that the girl at the end was his daughter. He was creepy, and I’ll be anxious to see how the team catches him as the Big Bad in the final season. I did love how involved Crystal, Rossi’s ex-wife/current fiancée was in the story. She was there for him and listened to him as he told the story, and it let us see how she handles his job.

On tonight’s episode, “Sick and Evil,” the BAU leads the investigation into a string of murders taking place in supposedly haunted houses in Lewiston, Maine.

See if they run into any ghosts tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Schooled, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, & Match Game.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/9/19

Tonight, ABC kicks off the new comedy Schooled, which is a 1990-something set spinoff of The Goldbergs. Barry Goldberg’s former girlfriend Lainey Lewis (AJ Michalka) hasn’t had much success in launching her music career, so she heads back home and applies for a job as the music teacher at her old high school, William Penn Academy. Lainey thinks that she’ll be able to relate to the students since they aren’t that much younger than herself. In a way that’s true, but she also realizes that she’ll need to quickly step up and take charge if she wants the students to see her as an authority figure. Helping Lainey navigate these new waters are the school’s new principal/former guidance counselor, Mr. Glascott (Tim Meadows) and the familiar Coach Mellor (Bryan Callen). This new peer relationship with her former teachers and calling them by their first names is going to take some getting used to!

A while back, ABC had done a backdoor pilot for this spinoff that wasn’t picked up. They did air the episode last year (and it wasn’t very good). This is a completely re-worked version of the series that is better but is still missing those fun family relationships and sibling rivalry that The Goldbergs offers. This series is not a replacement for the original but has the potential to be a fun 90s counterpart. It follows a lot of the same structure, with Lainey doing narration, photos/clips/interviews with the show’s real-life counterparts during the credits, and lots of great 90s music and fun pop-culture references. It’s hard to tell after just one episode what the focus of the series will be – i.e. does it plan to follow the same students from season to season, will there be other regular teachers in the cast, will we see more Goldbergs cameos after the premiere, etc? But I’m definitely interested in seeing where it goes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Be Like Mike,” Lainey returns to William Penn Academy, where she has a hard time adjusting to being an authority figure; Coach Mellor struggles with Michael Jordan’s influence on modern-day basketball.

See if this new show’s for you tonight on ABC at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Modern Family, Match Game, The Masked Singer, and I’m Sorry.

With the new year approaching, the Winter TV season is finally upon us, and there are lots of new and returning shows about to premiere. Tonight FOX launches the fun new mystery singing competition series, The Masked Singer.

I had stopped watched these singing competition series a while back, but The Masked Singer provides a fun new twist on the genre. If you saw the YouTube clip of Ryan Reynolds dressed as a unicorn signing on a Korean TV show last year, this is the same show but for US audiences. The series finds 12 celebrities hiding their identities under full-body costumes as they take the stage to sing incognito before a live audience. All told, the 12 celebrity competitors have amassed 65 Grammy nominations, 16 multi-Platinum albums, 16 Emmy nominations, nine Broadway shows, four stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and four Super Bowl titles! Each week some of the contestants will participate in head-to-head sing-offs. The studio audience and judges will vote, and at the end of the night, one of the singers will be eliminated and reveal his or her identity. Hosting the series is Nick Cannon, and the judging panel includes Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger.

I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere. As each masked singer is introduced, they give some clues to help you try to identify them. The judges also ask each contestant a question or two and make their own guesses. When the contestants are interviewed, their voices are distorted, but it’s fun to try to figure out who these singers are based on the clues, their mannerisms, their singing voices, etc. It’s obvious that some of these folks have a lot of experience singing/performing, while others not-so-much. My screeners for the first two episodes were blurred and bleeped during the big reveals, so I am really excited to check out tonight’s episode to learn the identity of one of these celebrities! In tonight’s episode, we meet half of the contestants, and next week we meet the second half.

On tonight’s premiere, “Mask On Face Off,” the first six undercover celebrity singers – peacock, hippo, monster, unicorn, deer and lion – face off against one another in elaborate head-to-toe costumes.

Check out the wildly fun competition tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording MythBusters Jr.
