If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/10/16

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!

ncis510smallLast week’s NCIS was kind of sad but also heartwarming. The episode opened with a man in a military uniform saying good-bye to his baby daughter, teenage son, and wife before being deployed. Then in the episode, that same teenager foiled what seemed to be a home invasion by grabbing his father’s gun and shooting at the intruder. Unfortunately, the boy was hiding what had really happened – the man, a drug dealer, was specifically coming after him because the boy had witnessed him killing a rival. Fortunately, the man was caught and the boy and his family were safe, and the boy’s father was brought home early, reuniting the family.

Then in the ongoing search for Jacob Scott, Director Vance and FBI Agent Fornell went over to London. They finally met up with former MI6 Chief Jessica Terdei and Fornell brought her to the US after Jacob Scott (we assume) found her at her father’s house. Unfortunately, while they were hiding out at Gibbs’s house, Fornell noticed a footprint in the kitchen and realized there was someone in his basement. He went back to Jessica and warned her, but before they could pull their guns or escape, they were shot. She was killed, and we were left with Fornell reaching out for his phone, where his daughter was calling.

We’re down to the final two episodes of the season and Michael Weatherly’s (Tony’s) final two episodes of the series. So first, where was Tony last week?! Was MW filming his pilot for Bull? Maybe… I don’t know. But it seemed very odd to me that with only a few episodes left, he wasn’t in that at all. Second, will Fornell survive? I can’t imagine that they’ll kill him off (for the same reason Vance can’t die…). His daughter lost her mother. Surely they won’t make her an orphan by killing off her father too… And finally, tonight we meet the two new agents who will be joining the team next season, Sarah Clarke (24) plays FBI Special Agent Tess Monroe and Duane Henry is MI6 Office Clayton Reeves.

On tonight’s penultimate episode, “Dead Letter,” the NCIS team, alongside the FBI and MI6, continue an international manhunt for an escaped British spy who has left one colleague fighting for their life in ICU.

Meet the soon-to-be team members and find out Fornell’s fate tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Chopped Junior, The Real O’Neals, Chicago Med, Containment, NCIS: NOLA, Chicago Fire, Chopped, & Person of Interest.

firstimpressionssmallTonight, USA Network kicks off its fun-looking new unscripted competition series, First Impressions with Dana Carvey. Each week the show will pit amateur entertainers against one another to see who can do the best celebrity impressions. The series is hosted by Freddie Prinze Jr. (Star Wars Rebels), who is joined by expert-in-residence Dana Carvey (Saturday Night Live). And they will be joined by celebrity guests who will help coach and cheer on the contestants. The celebrities who will be appearing this season include The Office’s Steve Carell and Kate Flannery, SNL alums Kevin Nealon and Jon Lovitz, Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), Tom Arnold (Roseanne), and Jay Leno.

Dana Carvey was always hilarious on SNL, and I really enjoyed the few films he had done afterwards. It seems like he had disappeared from the entertainment world, so it’s great to see him back. Plus, he seems like the perfect person to be involved in a show like this – I look forward to seeing him part his wisdom on a new generation of talented impressionists.

On tonight’s episode, Dana Carvey guides three of America’s best celebrity impressionists through a series of improv games, and one is crowned winner. Steve Carrell is the guest of the week.

Catch all the impressions and improve tonight on USA Network at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Fresh Off the Boat, The Real O’Neals, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Grandfathered, The Grinder, The Flash, Containment, Tour Group, and Chrisley Knows Best.

ncisnola510smallNCIS: NOLA has been having a very good season, and I am so glad I’ve fallen for the new installment in the NCIS franchise. The cast works really well together, and I’m waiting for Agent Lasalle to hook up with Brody.

Last week’s episode found Pride struggling to do everything needed at his restaurant without help. He finally realized he needed to let someone help him despite his need to do it all. As for the case, a young Navy chef was nearly killed when on leave and cooking at her family’s restaurant. At first they thought it was an attack against the restaurant itself, but it turned out that the young woman’s mother was being abused by her husband (the Navy chef’s stepfather), and when she started making plans to get her mother away from him, he tried to kill her. Thankfully the team was able to talk her mother into wearing a wire to help trap him before he could finish the job.

On tonight’s episode, “The Third Man,” the NCIS team partners with Homeland Security after the murder of a Navy master diver is linked to chatter of a foreign attack on the city.

To find out if they can play well with others, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago Med and Chicago Fire.
