If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/11/15

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!

Kyle’s Choice

thewalkingdead1011smallTonight, the original The Walking Dead returns for the start of its sixth season. When we last left off, the folks at Alexandria finally got the wake-up call they needed after Father Gabriel stupidly (and intentionally) left the gates open. There was also a tense moment in the season finale where Nicholas tried to kill Glenn, who somehow miraculously survived. Meanwhile, Morgan showed up in time to save Daryl and Aaron, who had been snared in the Wolves’ trap. Morgan and the others arrived back in town just in time to see Rick execute Pete for killing Deanna’s husband. And Michonne took her sword back down from the wall, realizing that there would be no rest for them.

Why hasn’t anyone killed the annoying Father Gabriel yet?! If he wants to kill himself, he should just go ahead and do it and not make everyone else pay for his own feelings of guilt! How are things at Alexandra going to change with these latest events, and what will Morgan think of the new Rick? And will Rick and his crew be able to whip the folks of Alexandria into shape so they will they be ready when the murderous forehead-carving “Wolves” ultimately find their way to this town?

On tonight’s 90-minute premiere, “First Time Again,” Rick and the group continue to have trouble assimilating into Alexandria; and a new threat could bring them closer together or drive them further apart.

Find out the new threat tonight on AMC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, Quantico, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Talking Dead, The Leftovers, Project Greenlight, and Homeland.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice

afhv2015smallI’ve been a big fan of America’s Funniest Home Videos since…well, since it started in 1990. That is a LONG time ago, but the show just keeps on being funny. It’s really a show for the whole family, and I love that it’s one I never have to worry about being too risqué for us to watch, even when my kiddo was little. Tom Bergeron was host for a long time, but beginning this season, Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton, from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and season 19 Dancing with the Stars winner) is taking over. He’s a funny guy and should do a great job as host, keeping us entertained between videos.

On tonight’s episode, videos include a package of “Animal Encounters” complete with an affectionate seal who jumps into a man’s kayak to snuggle, a dolphin who gives a woman climbing into a boat a playful nudge, a sneaky raccoon is caught on camera climbing into the house through a doggy door to steal the dog’s food, a woman finds a possum underneath her bed, and a practical joke is played on a group of teens who bite into caramel onions rather than apples.

See all these and more tonight on ABC at 7/6c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great British Baking Show, Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Halloween Wars, Cutthroat Kitchen, & CSI: Cyber.

brooklyn991011smallBrooklyn Nine-Nine has had an interesting start to the season, and it’s definitely odd around the precinct with Captain Holt not there to rule the roost –especially now that that’s done by the always disgusting Vulture. I’m not surprised that they decided to bring one of Jake’s arch enemies in as a captain after the last captain had a heart attack from walking in on Amy and Jake kissing. It’s just another way to throw Jake off his game. At the funeral for the deceased captain, Amy and Jake were doing their best to get the Vulture to go on record saying that he ordered them to break up or he’d fire them, but there were too many obstacles, including the widow who ended up freaking out after finding out Jake was the one responsible for shocking the captain into having a heart attack. In the end, it was slightly confusing with its inability to balance so many story lines, and I think they need to scale back a bit on the different arcs so that we can really appreciate them. That said, the side story with Boyle having sex with a lieutenant he didn’t even know the name of at the funeral was hilarious, but it was even funnier when he ended it because he found out she was a vegan. To him, that seemed worse than anything.

On tonight’s episode, “Boyle’s Hunch,” Jake thinks Boyle might have met his soul mate in Genevieve (guest star Mary Lynn Rajskub), an art gallery owner, and he tries to help set them up. Meanwhile, Rosa deals with inter-precinct theft and Holt seeks Amy’s help with an image campaign.

To see if Boyle has indeed met his true love, tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching The Walking Dead, Quantico, Once Upon a Time, and America’s Funniest Home Videos.
