If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/25/16

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!

ncisla925smallToday is my favorite day of the entire TV season. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration…but only slight! Tonight is the 2-hour season premiere of NCIS: LA, and it promises to be a good one! The LA branch of NCIS has been looking for a mole in the organization for a while now, and tonight it all comes to a head when higher-ups decide it’s time for someone else to be in charge and find the mole. How that will affect the team – and for how long – I don’t know. But something else that is affecting them is Daniela Ruah’s pregnancy. Kensi will be in every episode, but only because Daniela and (at least…) Eric (Deeks) filmed scenes in advance from each episode. Something huge happens with Kensi in this premiere, which keeps her out of the office/field for a while. I’m sure that means we’ll be seeing more of Nell in the field, partnered with Deeks, which should be a lot of fun. But it also means that this season should be an interesting one.

And don’t forget that because of football, Sunday shows on CBS tend to have erratic start times. CBS has tried to help by pushing everything back thirty minutes, which means shows will automatically start at 8:30/7:30c instead of 8/7c. But if you’re planning on recording NCIS: LA, Madam Secretary, or Elementary, I would make sure to record an hour or even two hours over, just to be sure you get it all. Trust me, I had to do that more than I’d like to remember the last few seasons!

On tonight’s two-hour premiere, “High-Value Target,” and “Belly of the Beast,” after NCIS fails to locate a mole in the department, Under Secretary of Defense Corbin Duggan (Jackson Hurst) insists on new leadership and takes over the Los Angeles unit from Hetty and Granger. Also, the team travels to Syria to apprehend a High Value Target, where one team member is severely injured when the mission goes awry.

See what happens when the office gets taken over and the team goes to Syria tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Great Food Truck Race, Cooks vs Cons, & Quantico.

bobsburgers925smallTonight, FOX’s Sunday animated(ish) lineup returns! These shows are always a highlight of my weekend, and it’s hard to pick just one of them to recommend, so I’m suggesting you tune in at 7:30/6:30c for the hilarious Bob’s Burgers seventh season premiere musical extravaganza, all the way through to The Last Man on Earth’s fun third season premiere, which picks up right where the second season’s big cliffhanger left off – with three strangers wearing hazmat suits and brandishing guns making their way toward the house. Tonight’s lineup also includes The Simpsons 28th season premiere, which centers around Monty Burns trying to fix a traumatic experience from his childhood; the fifteenth season premiere of Family Guy, which finds Stewie and Brian starting their own children’s band; and the so-called series premiere of Son of Zorn (though, for all intents and purposes, the “preview” episode that aired a couple weeks ago was really the series premiere).

I’ve already checked out screeners for four out of five of tonight’s premieres – the Family Guy episode wasn’t available, or else I would have definitely watched that as well – and I have to say this is quite a solid lineup that I will continue to look forward to each Sunday (and grumble about when it’s delayed due to football overruns)! Bob’s Burgers, The Last Man on Earth, and The Simpsons continue to feel fresh and fun, which is saying a lot with The Simpsons in its 28th year! And while I’m not completely sold on Son of Zorn yet, it continues to show promise and provide some laughs. (At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con I had the chance to talk to the cast and creators of Son of Zorn. You can find my video interviews at NoReruns.net: http://www.noreruns.net/2016/08/01/son-of-zorn-press-room-san-diego-comic-con-2016/)

On the Bob’s Burgers season 7 premiere, “Flu-ouise,” flu-ridden Louise experiences a wild fever dream that takes her on a manic adventure filled with familiar people and outrageous musical numbers.

On The Simpsons season 28 premiere, “Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus,” Springfield burns to the ground, so the Simpsons beseech wealthy Mr. Burns to finance the rebuilding, but he has a price to pay – he’s to put on a variety show at Springfield Bowl.

On the Son of Zorn “series” premiere, “Defender of Teen Love,” Zorn embarrasses his son in front his crush and tries to spy on her using the Stone of Sight. Elsewhere: Edie tries to force Zorn to move his old boxes out of her garage and into his own apartment.

On the Family Guy season 15 premiere, “The Boys in the Band,” Stewie and Brian put together a children’s band that rockets to the top, until a girl comes between them and fragments the group. Meanwhile, Peter and Lois order Chris to get a job, so he lands one as personal assistant to Quagmire in charge of managing his sex life.

And The Last Man on Earth season 3 premiere, “General Breast Theme with Cobras,” finds Malibu under attack by a trio of armed invaders in hazmat suits, but when the group can’t agree on how to thwart it, Melissa takes matters into her own hands, and Tandy gets a fashion lesson.

Fill your head with animation tonight on FOX starting at 7:30/6:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Once Upon a Time, Quantico, Fear the Walking Dead, The Great Food Truck Race, and The Strain.
