TVx3 Podcast – Jenny & Kyle Joined Jason to Talk TV!

Last week, I spoke with Jason (@theTVaholic) & Kyle (@kyool) on Jason’s TVx3 podcast. That’s always a lot of fun, especially when I’m feeling pretty passionate about a show or two! This time, we talked not only cancelation and renewal news, as well as our own TV recommendations (hint: mine was this season of SEAL Team!), but also about recent episodes of 9-1-1, The Big Bang Theory, FBI, & The Rookie plus the first episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Be sure to check out the podcast and see what the three of us thought. As always, it’s entertaining because of how awesome we are similar or differing our opinions can be, depending on the show! Find the podcast here on TV times Three.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/18

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, TBS’s comedic anthology series The Guest Book returns for a second season, with a reboot of sorts. As the second season opens, we learn that the ever-scheming Vivian (Carly Jibson, One Mississippi) lost her bar and has decided to make a fresh start to her life, leaving Mount Trace for a warmer climate. She is joined by food delivery guy Eddie (Eddie Steeples, My Name Is Earl), and the two end up in the small oceanside community of Mabel Beach. Vivian gets a job at the local diner, Emmy Lou’s Grill, which is run by Tommy (Dan Beirne, Fargo) and his pregnant fiancee Nikki (Kimiko Glenn, Orange Is the New Black). Tommy’s mother also owns a local vacation property, the Barefeet Retreat. Meanwhile, Eddie is back to delivering food but sleeps on the beach, which is where he befriends local handyman Bodhi (Jimmy Tatro, American Vandal). Each episode features new guests checking into the Barefeet Retreat and recounting their adventure in the property’s guest book. The series also follows the continuing story involving those who run and work at the diner and vacation home.

I wasn’t aware that the series was going to change to a new town and feature new regular characters each season, so I was a bit surprised and disappointed to not see Garret Dillahunt in tonight’s premiere. However, I really enjoyed the new characters and new setting. The series is just as fun as the first season, and I look forward to seeing what crazy guests and odd situations will arise this year. The series has an amazing lineup of guest stars for season two: Pete Davidson (SNL), Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Michael Kenneth Williams (The Wire), Matt Walsh (Veep), Lisa Rinna (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), Martha Plimpton (The Real O’Neals, Raising Hope), Nat Faxon (Friends from College), Michael Rapaport (Atypical), Steve Zissis (Togetherness), Allison Tolman (Fargo), Oliver Hudson (Splitting Up Together), Sufe Bradshaw (Veep), Nadine Velazquez (My Name is Earl), Darrell Britt-Gibson (Barry), Adhir Kalyan (I Love Dick), Joey “Coco” Diaz (I’m Dying Up Here), Matthew Moy (2 Broke Girls), Michael Cassidy (People of Earth), Kether Donohue (You’re the Worst), Lexi Ainsworth (General Hospital), and Jon Bass (Miracle Workers), plus some of the regulars from first season will return!

On the first half of tonight’s two-episode premiere, “Finding Reality,” Tara and Derek rent Barefeet Retreat in an attempt to improve their marriage, which has been complicated by Derek’s addiction to VR. Guest stars for the premiere include Joey Diaz, Kether Donohue, & Nat Faxon. Then in “Under Cover,” Rob and Shelley rent Barefeet Retreat to lure in their next mark, a woman named Angel who is abusing every substance that can be abused; Vivian develops a crush on Bodhi; Nikki goes into labor. Guest stars for episode two include Martha Plimpton, Sufe Bradshaw, & Will Arnett.

Take a retreat of your own tonight on TBS starting at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Kids Are Alright, black-ish, The Rookie, This Is Us, The Flash, Mayans M.C., and The Purge.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/18

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

My pick tonight is ABC’s latest drama, The Rookie, starring Castle vet, Nathan Fillion, who plays John Nolan, a small-town guy who pursues his dream of being an LAPD officer after an incident one day changes the way he looks at his life. He’s the force’s oldest rookie, so many of the higher-ups feel like he’s just a “walking midlife crisis,” and some are even really hard on him, since if he can’t keep up, he’ll not only be a danger to himself but to the public and other officers out there with him.

I was a big Castle (& Nathan Fillion) fan and was sad when it ended, even though the last few seasons weren’t as great as the beginning. I’m an even bigger fan of cop shows, so combine Nathan, cop shows, and a few producers from some of my all-time favorite shows like Criminal Minds & Human Target, and you know I’m going to look forward to it. When I got a chance to watch the pilot, I was both scared and excited – excited, because, duh…and scared because I was worried it wouldn’t live up to my expectations. But it did, even more than I’d hoped. There’s some serious story lines, but there’s also that Fillion charm and some laughs and romance as well, so I have my fingers crossed that it’ll be as popular with others as I think it should be.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” after a life-altering incident, John Nolan decides to pursue his dream of becoming a police officer; as the force’s oldest rookie, John is met with skepticism from some higher-ups.

Find out why John decides to join the police department tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Conners, The Little Couple, NCIS, The Kids Are Alright, Chopped, FBI, Lethal Weapon, NCIS: New Orleans, & Sweet Home Sextuplets.
