If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/20/16

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!

Kyle’s Choice

Last week, Younger returned to TV Land to kick off its second season. Liza’s daughter Caitlyn returned home from India but decided not to stick around after she saw her mother making out with Josh, and she went off to live and work with her father for a few weeks. Ever since he learned that Liza was actually 40, Josh became obsessed with her age. Plus, he now had to lie to his friends and her coworkers to keep up Liza’s charade – and this started to put a strain on their relationship. Meanwhile, Kelsey was getting tired of being neglected at work and almost took an offer to go to another publisher. However, Charles offered her her own imprint for 20-somethings and the ability to select her own team. Josh had convinced Liza to at least tell Kelsey the truth about her age. However, just as she was about to, Kelsey shared the good news about her promotion, how she wanted Liza to join her team, and how exciting it would be to have a bunch of 26-year-olds working together. And so Liza decided that it wasn’t the right moment to come clean. However, my favorite story line from the premiere was Diana’s embarrassing one-sided flirting with Charles, followed by her being stuck in a dentist’s chair, unable to speak, as the hot young doctor flirted with Charles right above her.

This show was one of my favorite new series last year – another great show from prolific producer Darren Star! I look forward to seeing how the rest of the season plays out. How long can Liza keep her secret? Do Liza and Josh have a future together, or will she move on to start a relationship with Charles? (They seem perfect for one another.) I’m really happy to have this show back on my TV!

A tip for folks who don’t get TV Land in HD: The series is also airs on Nickelodeon (though sometimes not on the same day).

On tonight’s episode, “Like a Boss,” Liza and Kelsey launch a new imprint while facing online criticism.

See how the new imprint goes for Liza and Kelsey tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Criminal Minds, The Middle, The Goldbergs, black-ish, Second Chance, Arrow, Supernatural, Man Seeking Woman, Face Off, and Teachers.

Jenny’s Choice

thegoldbergs120smallI really love The Goldbergs. It’s a funny show in and of itself, just because of the smart writing, great cast, and fantastic timing. But one of the reasons I love it as much as I do is because of the way it takes me back to my childhood. I’ve been reminded of so many fun, fantastic things, such as New Kids on the Block, mix tapes, “We Are the World,” and last week…Hands Across America. That happened the end of third grade for me, and I remember it being a huge deal. Looking back now I can see that it was a lot of craziness about it, but back then, it was something cool that even kids my age could be involved with. Whatever this show focuses on each week, I know it’ll bring back a memory for me and make me feel nostalgic for the easy days of childhood.

On tonight’s episode, “Double Dare,” Adam and Emmy are ecstatic their favorite TV game show Double Dare [Note from Jenny: I LOVED this show as a kid!!!] is hosting auditions at their school. But when Adam secretly asks Pops to be his partner and Emmy secretly asks Handsome Ben, the two get into a fight. Meanwhile, Murray and Barry are upset the Philadelphia Eagles have been losing until superstitious Barry becomes convinced Beverly is their good luck charm to change things around.

Relive a favorite childhood memory tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, The Mysteries of Laura, Mike & Molly, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Second Chance, black-ish, Chicago PD, Code Black, Mystery Diners, & Restaurant Startup.
 

Megan’s Choice

codeblack120smallLast week’s Code Black was an insane emotional rollercoaster that had me in tears quite a few times. We watched the aftermath of the drastic car accident from the week before, which left the doctors questioning all the decisions they made. Neil found Christa at the bottom of the hill with the family and got them help. Thanks to her heroic actions and help from the adorable little girl, the brother lived and the mom lived but was experiencing some paralysis. Mario and Heather were held at gunpoint by a husband who refused to believe his wife was dead. Mario eventually wrestled with him for the gun, and it went off, hitting the man in the head. Malaya ended up being by Carla’s side as she gave birth. Before the tumor ended Carla’s life, Malaya fulfilled her promise that Carla could hold her son at least once before she died, and then Carla was gone after that. Malaya was devastated, and I’m sure that most viewers cried over that. Cole up and left without so much as a word to anyone, not even Leanne, which she didn’t say upset her, but you could see how shaken she was because she finally took a chance on life and kissed him, only to have him disappear. I’m looking forward to much more emotional drama and medical excitement from this stellar freshman show.

On tonight’s episode, “First Date,” Angus’s older brother, an “all-star” ER doctor,
returns to Angels Memorial in hopes of securing a position as an attending, and Christa’s romantic feelings toward Neal begins to grow. Also, Malaya has to deal with a patient, Gordon Heshman, who becomes obsessed with her.

Find out how Angus handles having his big brother around tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Chicago PD, Arrow, Second Chance, and American Crime.
