If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/5/15

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!

Jenny’s Choice

scorpion105smallScorpion is a show that you kind of have to watch while knowing that it could be a little ridiculous – like on the season premiere with the weather balloon – but I love it. It’s a fun show, and as long as you don’t expect complete realism, you can enjoy it like I do. Last week, the team traveled to Cuba when a young woman from Cade’s past came to him for help in locating the war criminal who killed her parents when she was a little girl. It was an off-the-books mission, even though secretly, Molina helped them by setting them up with contacts and a plane to and from Cuba. The team barely made it back when the bad guy escaped right before they met the plane to go home, but they were able to grab him and get him on it before the Cuban police showed up. My favorite parts were how they went in to the barbershop get him and how they got Happy through the bank’s roof to get into the bad guy’s safety deposit box.

I’m really liking Alana De La Garza as the new head of Homeland Security, Adriana Molina. So far she’s worked well with the team. I hope she continues that way, rather than turning into a jerk like the former one did.

On tonight’s episode, “Fish Filet,” in order to save the lives of three judges, Sylvester goes undercover in a federal prison, but Team Scorpion must break him out when his life is threatened. Alana De La Garza and Kevin Weisman guest star.

See how the team gets Sylvester out tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Life in Pieces, Halloween Baking Championship, Minority Report, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, NCIS: LA, & Blindspot.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Kyle’s Choice

significantmother105smallTonight, the first season of The CW’s summer comedy Significant Mother comes to a close. Last week, we were left with a “to be continued…” cliffhanger. Lydia had decided to sell her house and move into a condo with Jimmy. However, Nate didn’t like either the idea of losing his childhood home or of losing his roommate. Harrison also saw this as the end of his chances of reconciling with his wife, so he, Nate, Sam, and her boyfriend Atticus tried to scare off potential buyers. Meanwhile, Nate had a chat with Jimmy, which got him terrified about commitment and worried that things were moving too fast. He decided to break up with Lydia.

Will Jimmy be able to get Nate and Lydia get back together? (Now that’s a change from where this series started!) I look forward to tonight’s finale, but I really hope this show returns next year for a second season. It’s just a really fun show with a delightful cast. I really enjoyed the arc of the first season – and they managed to squeeze in some creative film parodies. I’d love to see what else these writers can come up with.

On tonight’s finale, “Not About Bob,” Nate enlists Sam and Atticus to help him deliver some tough love to Jimmy; Lydia takes advice from her boss; and Harrison comes to a realization about his marriage to Lydia.

To see how the season ends, tune in to The CW at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Life in Pieces, Castle, Blindspot, Gotham, Minority Report, Switched at Birth, Awkward., and Faking It.

Megan’s Choice

ncisla105smallNCIS: LA has really been focused on playing with our heart strings the last few episodes. First it was with Callen not showing up for his team and dealing with finding the man who was like a father to him. Last week we watched as he struggled with memories during an assignment where he had to pretend to be a test subject. He failed, but the guy offered to let him pass if he’d work with their side, which was exactly what Callen wanted to happen. Eventually they found out how the agent in charge of the testing was convincing people to work for her and join the group of rogue agents. She was brought to justice because of Hetty…when we discovered that the testing named HL7 had actually been named after her, giving her a huge advantage to be able to fake the test. Also in this episode, Kensi was freaking out that Deeks was hiding something, which had her worrying all day, but in the end Deeks let her in on the truth that his mother was in town and he was ready for Kensi to meet her. What a huge step! I am still loving them as a couple and can’t wait to see where it goes.

On tonight’s episode, “Driving Miss Diva,” the NCIS team investigates a Peruvian massacre that occurred 20 years ago after it learns that a fashion model, who may have survived the incident, may now be in danger.

To watch the team kick ass as per usual, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, The Big Bang Theory, Scorpion, Halloween Baking Championship, Blindspot, and Minority Report.
