If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/6/19

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

If you read this blog much, you may have seen me raving a few weeks ago about the premiere of the final season of You’re the Worst, when I called it a perfect microcosm of the bittersweet show. Well, they clearly took this season very seriously and are seeking to stick the landing with a perfect score, because last week they did it again! We started with Jimmy getting a check for $700,000 for selling the movie rights to his last bawdy book. He reached out to Paul, who is an accountant. Amongst other things, Paul advised him to not tell Gretchen because of her massive crippling debt.

Soon, Becca showed up and tried to fuck Jimmy for blackmail purposes, but he got a pic of her C-section scar and blackmailed her instead! Some work-related B-stories peppered the episode as well. Edgar was lying to his boss cause he hated his new position at work, and Gretch needed to get her biggest clients cool with the idea that Lindsey was taking over as their manager. When Becca failed in her honeypot trap, her husband came to just pitch business ideas to Jimmy. Everybody wanted his money!

When Gretchen did finally find out about the cash, she told him she’s slept with lots of rich guys and never pursued anyone for money. Jimmy decided to put the money into paying off his mortgage and buying a fancy new red sports car for Gretchen. She noted they may actually be growing up, and we saw a moment of horror and hesitation on both their faces. They avoided that and got in the car to go get breakfast. SMASH CUT TO: Jimmy opened the door of the car back up, but we saw there had been much damage to the car, and as he and Edgar got out, there was a “for sale” sign on the lawn. It was too good to be true! But only one third into the season, this hopefully means the last episodes will once more climb toward some oddball reunion of these star-crossed, mentally questionable lovers. Hopefully, this show finally wins the Emmy it deserves!

On tonight’s episode, “A Very Good Boy,” Jimmy attempts to prove that, despite being on the verge of becoming a married man, he has not lost his edge. Edgar and Lindsay attempt to go on a real date.

Find out if Jimmy accomplishes his goal tonight on FXX at 10/9c.

I will also be tuning in for Deadly Class and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/3/19

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!

Jenny’s Choice

Given the sort of disaster that is this season of America’s Got Talent, having another talent competition may be just what we need right now. That’s why my pick tonight is the series premiere of The World’s Best. Hosted by James Corden, with a fun lineup of judges (actress Drew Barrymore, TV personality RuPaul, & country singer Faith Hill), the show features acts from every genre available from countries all over the world. The acts will perform not only for the judges but also to impress the “wall of the world,” which features 50 of the world’s most accomplished experts from every field of entertainment (dancers, singers, directors, UFC fighters, models, record producers, gymnasts, etc).

On tonight’s episode, “The Auditions Pt 1,” the acts include: Mongolia’s Enkh-Erdene (“The Mongolian Cowboy”), South Korea’s Kukkiwon (“The Flying Taekwondo Masters”), Japan’s Manami Ito (“The Miracle Violinist”), Great Britain’s Matt Johnson (“The Drowning Man”), Australia’s Space Cowboy (“The Dangerous Man”), and the Philippines’ the TNT Boys (“Vocal Dynamo Trio”), who all compete for a shot to advance in the competition.

To check out the new talent, tune in to CBS at 10/9c (or after the Super Bowl!).

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Worst Cooks in America & Beat Bobby Flay.
