If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/19/16

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!

chicagofire119smallThe last new episode of Chicago Fire was part of the big crossover event. Once Hermann was found on the floor at the back of the bar, the team gathered at the hospital where he was being treated. Freddie had apparently gotten a good shot in, because Hermann was in bad shape. Cruz felt really bad about it, since he’d been the one to bring Freddie into the firehouse in the first place, so he went all renegade and tried to find Freddie by questioning a gang leader. He nearly got his head shot off, but Severide arrived just in time with the truck, which prompted the gang leader to let Cruz go with a warning. Meanwhile, Mouch proposed to Trudy, although it was kind of a spur of the moment thing and not very elegant. So she basically turned him down. Later, he got the chance to apologize and explain where his head was at, and she turned it around and asked him, with the cutest proposal I’ve seen in a while. And of course, Hermann continued to heal in the hospital throughout the other two episodes of the crossover, and they finally caught Freddie and hauled him off to jail.

We pick back up this week and it’s obviously been a while since the stabbing, since Hermann’s back at work. Chili is still acting really strange. Her character has really become…weird this season. Last season I didn’t really like her because she seemed so rah-rah, gotta sell my product and I was worried she would take advantage of Hermann. This season, especially the last couple of episodes, she’s just been all over the place emotionally. I don’t know if it’s drugs or some mental issue or what, but it’s going to start affecting her work even more than it already has, and I hope it doesn’t begin to endanger Brett or any of the fire crew!

On tonight’s episode, “The Path of Destruction,” a tornado threatens the city. Chili and Brett lock heads when Chili makes a critical mistake, prompting Brett to report to Chief Boden regarding Chili’s erratic behavior. Meanwhile, Otis pleads for Dawson to help him solve his women troubles, and Severide is asked to lend assistance to Agent Alex Ward (guest star Liza Bennett) from the Department of Homeland Security.

See if they can stay out of the tornado’s path and what Severide can do for Homeland tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped, Hollywood Game Night, NCIS, Team Ninja Warrior, Grandfathered, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chicago Med, Junk Food Flip, The Little Couple, NCIS: NOLA, & The Shannara Chronicles.

agentcarter119smallTonight, Marvel’s Agent Carter returns for a second with a special 2-hour premiere. As the first season ended, Peggy successfully thwarted the attack on Times Square and Ivchenko was arrested, but Dottie had escaped. Peggy returned to the SSR office to a round of applause, but this was short-lived when Senator Walt Cooper walked in and gave Jack Thompson all the credit, and Jack happily accepted it. Sousa was upset that Peggy got robbed of the acknowledgement, but she said she was okay just knowing in her heart what she did. Sousa asked Peggy out for a drink, but she had to meet Angie. Jarvis informed the women that they were free to use one of Stark’s homes. Then he told Peggy that Stark was destroying all of his weapons and gave her the vial of Steve Rogers’ blood, which she dumped into the ocean. The season ended with Ivchenko meeting his cellmate, who was a fan of his work and had some plans of his own.

This season, Peggy’s job brings her from New York City to Los Angeles. I’m looking forward to seeing what threats await Peggy on the West Coast and how the new locale changes the series and the character dynamics. Now that Peggy has moved on from Steve, will she be looking for romance? (Perhaps with Sousa?) And will Dottie and/or Ivchenko be back – and if so, what new schemes are they plotting?

On tonight’s first episode, “The Lady in the Lake,” after moving to Los Angeles to aid the West Coast branch of SSR, Peggy investigates a strange homicide in which the body glows and emanates cold. Then, in “A View in the Dark,” Peggy’s investigation of the strange homicide in which the body glows and emanates cold could lead to ramifications that threaten to wreck her career and impact those who are near and dear to her.

Don’t miss the 2-hour season premiere tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Limitless, Marvel’s Captain America: 75 Heroic Years, Hollywood Game Night, New Girl, Grandfathered, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Grinder, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now, DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League, The Expanse, Pitch Slapped, Teen Wolf, and The Shannara Chronicles.

ncisnolasmallNCIS: NOLA continues to deliver fantastic episodes this season, and I am always eager for more. One thing I like about the NCIS franchise is that while all three shows have similarities, the writers make sure to keep the characters fresh enough in each show that they don’t make the shows mundane.

The last episode was the crossover with NCIS, where they were trying to catch a Russian spy that Abby’s brother fell in love with. In the end, everyone got caught and taken care of, but despite what everyone thought, I believe her brother really did fall in love, but what’s more, the spy loved him too. It was a bittersweet episode. I’d be pleased with more crossovers between these two, because it brought more life back into the original as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Undocumented,” Special Agent Pride and the NCIS team investigate the murder of an immigrant Petty Officer that was staged as a suicide. Also, the team secretly creates an online dating profile for Pride.

Find out what the team considers Pride’s selling points for dating tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chopped, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Limitless, and The Shannara Chronicles.
