If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/5/17

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!

Kyle’s Choice #1

Tonight, Syfy kicks off a new Thursday night lineup, beginning with the second season premiere of Van Helsing. In the first season, Vanessa Helsing awoke from a long coma to find herself in a world overrun by vampires and learned that her young daughter was missing. She banded with a group of survivors while she looked for her daughter. In the process, she discovered that she had special powers — her blood could turn vampires back into humans. Dmitri, the leader of the vampires, managed to capture Vanessa and brought her to his citadel, where he had his doctor perform experiments on her, trying to learn more about her unique blood. However, the experiments seem to have left Vanessa with super-human strength, and she managed to break free. As Vanessa roamed the building, she found her daughter, but Dylan had been turned into a vampire. Meanwhile, Taka, with the help of vampire Rebecca, led a small Resistance army into the citadel to take down the vampires. While the others spread out, he found Dmitri and was about to kill him, when Dmitri made him an offer.

Tonight’s second season premiere picks up right where the first season left off. How will Vanessa deal with her vampire daughter? Will she try to use her blood to save her, or is it already too late? The same goes for Julius, who was also turned at the end of last season. What did Dmitri offer Taka, and will he betray the Resistance? Will Vanessa rejoin the others? How will she react to reuniting with Mohamad after his betrayal last season? It should be another exciting season!

While she’s not in tonight’s episode, Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue) will be joining the cast this season as Scarlett Harker. I’m sure that last name is no coincidence, so I’m looking forward to seeing how she fits into the story. I had a chance to talk with some of the cast members and producers about the show at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. You can find my video interviews at NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s premiere, “Began Again,” Vanessa and Mohamad search for Dylan as Dmitri’s citadel crumbles around them; Flesh acquires an unexpected ally in one of the Resistance Fighters; Taka clashes with the Vampire Elite.

Catch all the action tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/23/16

Jenny’s Choice

macgyver923smallThis season, I was looking forward to two new shows in particular: Lethal Weapon, which everyone seems to have enjoyed more than they thought they would…and the other? Tonight’s premiere of MacGyver. I was a big fan when I caught the original series on repeats years ago, and Lucas Till is adorable. So I had high hopes – and after seeing a screener for the first episode a couple of weeks ago, I have to say I wasn’t disappointed in the least. In case you don’t know…

Angus “Mac” MacGyver is a young special agent in a clandestine organization within the US government, and his specialty is basically being able to do almost anything with almost nothing – like disarming a bomb with nothing but a paperclip. In the original series, MacGyver is a bit older and has been around a while. So this iteration is us seeing Mac in his younger years, before he turns into the MacGyver from the original series. In this one, Mac works with former CIA agent Jack Dalton (George Eads, CSI) and Riley Davis (Tristin Mays), a computer hacker they “break out” of jail to help with their case but who ends up an integral member of the team. Their boss Patricia Thornton is played by Sandrine Holt, and Mac’s roommate, Wilt Bozer, who doesn’t know what Mac really does, is played by Justin Hires (from TV’s failed Rush Hour drama).

On tonight’s episode, “The Rising,” Angus “Mac” MacGyver and Jack Dalton, special agents for the Department of External Services (DXS), join forces to recover a missing bioweapon that has the ability to destroy hundreds of thousands of people with one single drop.

Meet Mac, Jack, and Riley tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Last Man Standing, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, & Van Helsing.
