If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/22/16

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 #1

pitch922smallTonight, FOX kicks off the new drama series Pitch. From a young age, aspiring baseball pitcher Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury, Under the Dome) was trained by her father (Michael Beach, Sons of Anarchy), and she eventually made it into the minor leagues. Now her big day has come – she’s been called up by the San Diego Padres, making her the first woman to play Major League Baseball. Suddenly thrown into the limelight, Ginny must prove herself to the fans and her own teammates, especially team captain Mike Lawson (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Franklin & Bash). The rest of the main characters include team manager Al Luongo (Dan Lauria, The Wonder Years), general manager Oscar Arguella (Mark Consuelos, All My Children), Ginny’s agent/friend Amelia Slater (Ali Larter, Heroes), center fielder/minor league friend Blip Sanders (Mo McRae, Sons of Anarchy), and his wife Evelyn (Meagan Holder, You Again).

I got a chance to see tonight’s pilot during a screening/Q&A with the cast at this summer’s ATX Television Festival. It’s a really entertaining and inspiring story. Since the series is working closely with MLB, they will be using real team names and locations, which adds a nice layer of authenticity to what’s happening in the series. It seems a bit odd that the series starts right as Ginny starts in the majors rather than leading up to this moment over the course of the series. But I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of dramatic stories they plan to tell.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a young pitcher adjusts to life in the spotlight after making history as the first woman to play Major League Baseball.

Play catch with Ginny tonight on FOX at 8:59/7:59c.

Megan’s Choice

chicagomed922smallChicago Med came on the scene last season, and I was hooked to yet another show in the #OneChicago franchise. Tonight is the season 2 premiere, and I can hardly wait.

When we left our favorite medical team last season, we saw Rhodes helping Dr. Downey die peacefully when he was diagnosed with a short time to live with his brain cancer. April found out she had tuberculosis, and the always sexy Dr. Halstead realized he may just have waited too long to make a move on Dr. Manning. It was an interesting season, and we were left wondering where all our favorites would be this season.

On tonight’s episode, “Soul Care,” Dr. Rhodes begins his fellowship in cardiothoracic surgery but gets off on the wrong foot with his challenging new boss, Dr. Latham. Dr. Choi navigates life as the new chief resident and finds the road a bit rocky, while Dr. Charles approaches Sarah with an interesting opportunity that catches her off-guard. Elsewhere, April works to come to terms with her recently discovered illness, and Dr. Manning deals with a complicated case involving a pregnant woman who was a victim in a high speed collision. Meanwhile, Dr. Halstead takes exception to the actions of fourth-year medical student Jeff Clarke, whose past history with Dr. Manning may be a factor.

To see how everyone starts to find their way this season, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, Rosewood, The Good Place, Superstore, Pitch, Notorious, How to Get Away with Murder, and Chopped.

Kyle’s Choice #2

superstore922smallI’m also really excited for the doors of Superstore to reopen tonight. This was one of my favorite new shows last year – the hilarious ensemble works so well together. As the first season ended, we were left with a huge cliffhanger, and I can’t wait to see how things play out. When Cheyenne was denied paid maternity leave, Glenn circumvented the system by “suspending” her with pay for six weeks. This didn’t sit well with the higher-ups, and Glenn was fired. The rest of the Cloud 9 employees (minus Dina) staged a walkout in protest, but it backfired when Dina was promoted to store manager and locked the other employees out. Will Dina fire them all, or will the others be successful in getting Glenn his job back? I’m looking forward to another fun season of superstore craziness!

On tonight’s episode, “Strike,” the staffers go on strike, but Amy and Jonah make things worse by negotiating with corporate. Also: The ambitious Mateo regrets going on strike and sneaks back into the store; and Garrett meets a sightly woman on the picket line.

See how the strike affects the employees’ jobs tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, Notorious, The Good Place, The Blacklist, and 60 Days In.
