If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/25/16

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!

scorpion425smallTonight is the season finale of Scorpion, and it promises to be a good one. Thank goodness that the show has been renewed for next season already. I can smile even though I’ll miss it after tonight! Last week seemed a bit far-fetched, but it was exciting and tense and ultimately a bit disappointing. First, though, the good parts. I always love how inventive the team is. Using the old carnival merry-go-round to pull the plane out? Genius. Blowing up the building to stop the lava-type stuff from reaching the blow-upy stuff? (yes, those are the technical terms. LOL) Also genius. And I loved how crazy Walter’s plan was to get himself and Paige off the roof. And finally, Toby’s testifying against their old friend/fellow genius, Mark Collins. He was so funny. He does sarcastic so well. The bad? Once again, Walter chickened out about Paige, and frankly, that’s getting old. I know it’s only the end of season 2, so why I’m so impatient about them, I don’t know. Maybe it’s because they don’t seem to be making any progress. Every time we *think* Walter is taking a baby step forward, he ends up going backwards. So it’s really frustrating. Oh, and ultimately sweet but because of what happened at the end, Toby getting Happy’s engagement ring – which was perfect and adorable! – was great, but eek! Damn Collins for kidnapping him!

On tonight’s episode, “Toby or Not Toby,” Team Scorpion must outthink their unstable ex-Scorpion member, Mark Collins (guest star Joshua Leonard), after he kidnaps Toby and threatens to kill him unless his cunning demands are met.

Learn what demands Collins makes for Toby’s return tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cupcake Wars, Mike & Molly, Lucifer, NCIS: LA, & Blindspot.

turn425smallTonight, AMC’s Revolutionary War spy drama TURN: Washington’s Spies returns for its third season. When we last left off, Hewlett had ordered Abe to compile his final New York spy report for John André, but Abe was afraid he’d see right through a false report. He tried to get Anna’s help to lure Hewlett into a trap so he could assassinate him, but she refused. So Abe delivered his report to Hewlett and then shot the man he handed it off to before he could deliver it to John André. But as Abe removed the report from the body, he was abducted by Robert Rogers, who told him he knew the identity of everyone in the Culper Ring and vowed to use Abe to get his revenge on André. Meanwhile, Washington discovered the traitors in his camp and stopped them before they could report back the identity of the Culper Ring spies; Peggy discovered Benedict Arnold had threatened her father in order to obtain permission to marry her and asked if they could postpone the wedding until her older sister was married; and André’s servant Abigail was reunited with her son Cicero, which made her reconsider spying for the Patriots.

I had been behind on the series but finally caught up last month while reviewing the second season DVD release. I really enjoyed the second season, and now I’m excited for the new episodes. I’m interested to see how Abe manages to escape from Rogers, and if Rogers really does know the Culper Ring spies, how is Abe going to prevent him from spreading this information?! How will Washington deal with turncoat Benedict Arnold? And is there any hope of Peggy escaping from that abusive relationship?

On tonight’s premiere, “Valediction,” Abe covers up a murder with an unlikely accomplice. Elsewhere, Benedict Arnold abuses his power as he settles into a new home in Philadelphia.

To go back in history, tune in to AMC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, Blindspot, Lucifer, Jane the Virgin, The Detour, Bates Motel, and 12 Monkeys.

lucifer425smallI’m quite sad that tonight is the season finale of Lucifer, because I’ve grown quite fond of the quirky, witty procedural and i’s sexy leading man. While it’s true that I didn’t have much hope for this show in the beginning, I am so pleased that it has become one of my favorite weekly guilty pleasures.

On last week’s episode, Lucifer was trying to avoid Chloe because he realized that she was making him vulnerable. Now he believes she’s an angel of some sort, because that’s the only way to explain why she makes him mortal. Lucifer and Chloe ended up working a case together involving some satanic worshipers and a murder, but toward the end of the episode, everything went sideways and Lucifer was arrested for the murder of the street preacher. I’m not sure how this is going to end, but I hope Chloe manages to save the day.

On tonight’s finale, “Take Me Back to Hell,” when Lucifer is framed for murder, he and Chloe must work together to clear his name and prove the identity of the true killer.

Find out if they can solve this and save Lucifer tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Blindspot, NCIS: LA, and Scorpion.
