If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/25/15

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!

underthedome2015smallTonight, Under the Dome returns for another season of craziness with a special 2-hour premiere. When we last left off, the dome was contracting and all of those inside were anxiously looking for some way out. The townsfolk had descended into the crater and followed a path marked by a monarch butterfly. Back on the surface, Pauline was in pain, and Rebecca agreed to assist her with her suicide. However, when Big Jim discovered this, he went off the rails, picked up a hammer, and killed Rebecca with a single blow. He then threatened the dome that if it didn’t bring Pauline back to life, he would start killing all of those with a special bond to it.

When the dome (obviously) didn’t respond, Big Jim headed off to Andrea’s, where he held her at gunpoint as Julia tried to reason with him. But he shot Andrea in the head and then went after Julia, who was able to escape by stabbing Big Jim in the foot. Junior had a stand-off with his father and managed to shoot him in the shoulder. Back in the crater, Barbie was leading the townspeople down the path when they hit a dead end. He touched the wall, and it started to glow, and Melanie appeared, telling the townsfolk to follow her back home.

Where are the townsfolk going — what is “home”? And what about those who weren’t able to cross the gap left by the earthquakes? What is their plan of escape? Will the quakes and dome contraction stop once these others leave? What will those left behind do with Big Jim? Will we ever get an answer to who or what put the dome over Chester’s Mill and why?

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Move On/But I’m Not,” Chester’s Mill residents appear inside and outside the Dome following an evacuation into the tunnels beneath the town. Meanwhile, the Dome begins to reveal its ultimate agenda; and surprising alliances form as new residents emerge.

See what answers we get tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Astronaut Wives Club, Rookie Blue, Hannibal, BOOM! , Wayward Pines, The Comedians, and Complications.

boomsmallMy pick tonight is the new game show on FOX, Boom! Teams of three compete to answer trivia questions one at a time in order to earn money. The twist? Each time one of the team members goes up to answer questions, they have to cut the wires on a “bomb” that correspond to the correct answers. If they clip the wrong wire, the bomb explodes…sending everything from macaroni and cheese to beer to Alfredo sauce shooting out all over the contestants and a small segment of the audience, who are encased in plastic ponchos. I’ve seen the premiere, and it’s a lot of fun playing along and seeing if you can answer the questions yourself. The show is hosted by Tom Papa, who does a pretty good job of moving it along and is fun and interactive with the contestants.

On tonight’s episode, “It’s the Maple Syrup Bomb!” teams of contestants compete to answer trivia questions. If they get the questions right, they could win big money; if they get it wrong or run out of time, they are showered with anything from guacamole to maple syrup.

See how many questions you can answer tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Complications, Beat Bobby Flay, & Rookie Blue.
