If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/6/16

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

criminalmindsbb46smallI’m enjoying Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders. The cast is great and the chemistry is fun, and the cases are great. Last week, an Egyptian-American man, Malik, in Egypt was killed via chemical agent, and then they learned another Egyptian man, Jabir, had been killed as well. They learned that Malik was gay and thought that was the reason he’d been killed, but Jabir wasn’t known in the small, quiet gay community, and when they found a third victim, they knew it wasn’t a hate crime. In the end, it turned out that Jabir’s wife was the killer, targeting the men she believed responsible for her husband’s death (an incident in their past), but she killed herself before they could take her in. Thankfully, they rescued Malik’s boyfriend/significant other, who Jabir’s wife had buried alive in the hopes that he would have a slow death.

One of the things I love most about this show is seeing the different cultures and how things are so vastly different from the US – from dealing with sexuality, women, or whatever, it really brings things into perspective for me about how lucky we are to live in this country. It may not seem like it sometimes, but we are. Hopefully on tonight’s double episodes, we’ll get more proof of that, as it’s nice to be reminded of it!

On tonight’s first episode, “Whispering Death,” the IRT travels to Japan, where the team assists local law enforcement to investigate a string of homicides made to look like suicides. Also, Mae tries to encourage Clara to get out and enjoy herself. Then on the second episode, “The Lonely Heart,” the IRT heads to Paris to search for an UnSub targeting Americans who live there.

Travel the world with the International Response Team tonight on CBS starting at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Heartbeat, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, Wahlburgers, black-ish, Lopez, Mystery Diners, & The Soul Man.

theamericans46smallLast week on The Americans, Philip and Elizabeth were trying to come up with a solution to the whole Pastor Tim problem. The both knew he had to be killed, but they feared that Paige would be devastated and would also likely figure out that they were responsible. As they debated, Paige came clean, telling them she revealed their secret to Pastor Tim, who had also told his wife. The Jennings came up with a plan to take a family trip to Epcot so they are away when the Pastor and his wife have their “accident” and even made it all look like son Henry’s idea so Paige won’t be suspicious. However, that plan fell apart when the Jennings received a call saying that something was wrong with Gabriel – they suspected he might have contracted an infectious disease, and now they had to quarantine themselves for 36 hours. This meant no trip and that they would now look even guiltier to Paige if they couldn’t explain their whereabouts when Pastor Tim is killed.

Was Gabriel poisoned to silence him, or was this truly an accident, and will he pull through? How will the Jennings explain their disappearance to the kids? Will Pastor Tim and his wife be permanently silenced, and if so, how will Paige react? For what purpose has Elizabeth been cultivating potential asset/Korean housewife/Mary Kay saleswoman Young Hee? And what’s happening with Nina back in Russia? Will her superiors learn that she revealed her mission to Anton, and if so, what consequences will she face? This is shaping up to be another great season, and I’m really looking forward to tonight’s episode!

On tonight’s episode, “Chloramphenicol,” patriotism is tested after a flaw during a mission puts Philip, Elizabeth, William, and Gabriel in danger while Nina puts her life on the line back in Russia.

To see if the characters come away unscathed, tune in to FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Modern Family, black-ish, Heartbeat, Empire, Arrow, Supernatural, and Baby Daddy.
