If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/2/16

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!

Jenny’s Choice #1

rosewood32smallRosewood has been off our TVs for three months, but it’s back tonight, picking up from where they left off in December – in search of a serial killer. The first victim had been drained of blood and his blood used to write a message on a fortune cookie. Then the second victim was also drained of blood, but his heart had been removed from his body without an incision. After that, the PD computers were hacked into and a clue left for the police, which led them to a museum where victim #3’s brain had been left as an art installation. The clues led them to a man named Roger, who they first thought was another almost-victim, but then they figured out that his description of the bad guy was a mask they found at his place, so they arrested him as the murderer. At the end of the episode, Villa and Rosie were at the lab, having a moment, when they saw a message the killer had left, saying they had the wrong guy. Oops!

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and it’s a fun way to wrap up that story line. Villa’s new…boyfriend/fling/whatever, Mike, is back, as is Rosie’s (ex-)girlfriend/Villa’s therapist Kat. Plus, we get to meet TMI’s family. Fun stuff!

On tonight’s episode, “Paralytics and Priorities,” picking up where the series left off after the fall finale, Rosewood and Villa must decipher a trail of clues before the killer claims another victim. Pippy wants to confront TMI’s mother. Hornstock is faced with a decision. And things heat up between Mike and Villa.

See if Rosie and Villa can solve the case before there’s another murder tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

therealonealssmallTonight, ABC kicks off its latest hilarious family comedy The Real O’Neals, with two (not-so-back-to-back) episodes on a special night, before the show moves to Tuesdays next week. The series follows an Irish Catholic family whose seemingly perfect life comes crashing down as all of the family’s secrets are suddenly, publicly, exposed. Matriarch Eileen (Martha Plimpton, Raising Hope) is a devout Catholic who is very proud of the perfect image she and her family put on for the outside world. However, she is secretly having marital problems with husband Pat (Jay Ferguson, Mad Men), a Chicago police officer. Oldest son Jimmy (Matt Shively, True Jackson, VP) is a bit of a dimwit and the star of his high school wrestling team, but worrying about his weight has given him an eating disorder. Middle son Kenny (Noah Galvin) is his mother’s favorite, but will that change when he comes out as gay to his family and neighbors? Finally, youngest daughter Shannon (Bebe Wood, The New Normal) is the brightest of the children, but she uses her smarts to stage fake charity fundraisers for her own profit. And living close by is quirky hairdresser Aunt Jodi (Mary Hollis Inboden, The Chicago Code), who helps the O’Neals deal with the fallout as their secrets go public.

I have already seen four episodes of the series, and I’m completely hooked. It’s so much fun! The cast is great, and they work really well together – the characters feel like a real family. I really enjoyed the premise. It’s fun to see this family forced to face reality while still trying to hold on to their perfect facade. Much like ABC’s other family sitcoms, this series finds that perfect blend of hilarious humor and heartwarming moments. The situations get pretty wacky, but the family always seems to come together in the end.

On tonight’s first episode, “Pilot,” Kenny announces he’s gay and other family secrets spill out in the series premiere of this comedy about a seemingly ideal family whose members start being honest with one another. And then later in “The Real Papaya,” Kenny turns to Jimmy Kimmel for guidance as he struggles to find the best way to break up with Mimi. Meanwhile, a frantic Eileen tries to change Kenny and take control of her family in the wake of everyone’s confessions.

Meet the new family on the block tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c & 9:31/8:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, American Crime, Young & Hungry, Baby Daddy, Man Seeking Woman, Suits, Face Off, Younger, and Hap and Leonard.

Megan’s Choice

criminalminds32smallI am anxiously awaiting tonight’s episode of Criminal Minds , as we were left with a “to be continued” with Derek’s life hanging in the balance.

Last episode, Derek was worried the whole time he was away with the unit about a text he’d received from his girlfriend that said they needed to talk. He was concerned this was history repeating itself and she was going to break up with him because of his job. Despite his mind being distracted, the team managed to solve the case of a man impersonating an FBI agent and then killing the unsuspecting victim once they let him in their house. When the team arrived home and went their separate ways, things got dangerous. Derek was ambushed and drugged by a couple of men who then beat him and the screen went black. Thankfully he was on the phone with his girlfriend and yelled for her to call Hotchner before he was beaten worse and his phone smashed.

On tonight’s episode, appropriately titled “Derek,” when Morgan is abducted, the BAU scrambles to find him and save his life. Danny Glover guest stars as Morgan’s father, Hank.

Find out if the BAU can rescue him before it’s too late tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, Law & Order: SVU, Rosewood, Hell’s Kitchen, and CSI: Cyber.

Jenny’s Choice #2

csicyber32smallBecause of the Oscars on Sunday, we didn’t get a new episode of CSI: Cyber. They’re airing it tonight instead. On the last episode, a killer was targeting people wearing fitness trackers…only, it turned out to not be that simple. The first victim was kidnapped and then killed by accident. In the end, they learned that it was a man and his father-in-law behind it all because their wife/daughter needed an organ transplant (I want to say kidney?), and she was too far down the list to get a legal transplant before she died. Her father used to be a surgeon, so they hacked into the fitness tracker information (the husband was a computer guy) in order to find people who would be compatible for the sick woman. Luckily, the team was able to track them using some of the same fitness tracking stuff, but they were too late: the surgery had already been finished by the time they got there. Luckily the victim lived, and the first thing she asked once told what had happened and why was whether or not the woman was okay. So it worked out okay for her and the sick woman, but the husband and father would be going to prison, which was sad for the woman.

Tonight’s episode is all about Python, who, if you don’t remember, is a black-hat hacker who Avery tried to put on her team at the beginning, but Python betrayed her and nearly cost Avery the program. Also you need to remember that Avery’s daughter died as a child, and Avery just reconnected with Grace, her daughter’s best friend, who was the daughter of the woman who was driving the car when Avery’s daughter was killed in an accident. This should be an exciting case!

On tonight’s episode, “Python’s Revenge,” Cyber’s most notorious criminal, Python, returns to kidnap Avery’s surrogate daughter, making the team decipher a series of elaborate code-like puzzles in an attempt to save her life.

See if Avery and the team can save Grace’s life and catch Python tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, The Real O’Neals, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, Hell’s Kitchen, Law & Order: SVU, & Chicago PD.
