If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/19/17

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!

SO MUCH happened on the previous episode of NCIS: LA. Way too much to talk about here. So check out my stream-of-consciousness thoughts that are in no particular order: 1) Hetty is the one who set up the team members to be arrested, in order to keep them locked up and safe from the true bad guys (and in Sam’s case, at least, he wasn’t REALLY locked up, as the agent in charge did it as a favor to Hetty). 2) It turned out to be a good thing, since Kensi, who wasn’t arrested and DIDN’T follow Hetty’s instructions to stay there at Ops and be safe, was kidnapped by the bad guys! 3) The CIA is indeed behind the whole mole thing – Sabatino and Sharov, the CIA operative the team rescued from the Russian prison, included. 4) Sullivan (Kensi’s Marine friend from rehab) is actually CIA, and he has a personal grudge against the team and Kensi in particular, as she accidentally shot his leg off in Afghanistan when she thought he was Taliban. 5) Ferris is the one who kidnapped Kensi, and he’s looking for payback. An eye for an eye…or more specifically, a leg for a leg! 6) Hetty blew up the building she was in, which killed Sharov and nearly killed Carl Brown and Sabatino, but Carl Brown got a shot off and hit LAPD Detective Whiting, the woman gunning for Deeks who was actually helping the team look for Hetty and Kensi at the end of the episode. Brown was then promptly killed as the team returned fire. (Good riddance!)

So a lot of questions going into tonight’s episode! 1) Obviously they won’t cut off Kensi’s leg, right? 2) Did Sabatino survive? He was alive when they checked him at the blast site, but… 3) What about Granger? The last we heard, he was alive after being stabbed in prison. Miguel Ferrer passed away exactly a month ago, on January 29, so if they originally had Granger surviving the stabbing, did they have to refilm some of this episode so the character doesn’t survive, or does he survive, only to be written out some other way? Either way, it’s a sad thing! 4) Given the episode description for tonight and the fact that Elizabeth Bogush is guest starring as Joelle Taylor, does that mean Callen’s ex-girlfriend is actually a bad guy?! Gah!

On tonight’s episode, “Payback,” emotions run high for the team as one agent is held in an unknown location and tortured by the mole, while another discovers he was betrayed by someone he least expected.

See how the team finds Kensi and who betrayed whom tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, The Paley Center Salutes NBC’s 90th Birthday, Worst Cooks in America, Cake Wars, & To Tell the Truth.

Tonight, CBS is giving viewers a look at the premiere of the new The Good Wife spin-off series, The Good Fight, before the CBS All Access original series becomes exclusively available on the network’s paid streaming service. The series picks up one year after the events of The Good Wife series finale. Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski, The Good Wife) is working as a named partner at a huge Chicago law firm but is already looking forward to her upcoming retirement in Provence. Diane’s goddaughter, Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie, Game of Thrones) has just passed the bar and has joined the firm as a junior associate. Diane’s final case is defending some cops in a police brutality case, and she’s up against familiar faces Adrian Boseman (Delroy Lindo, Blood & Oil, Believe) and Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo, The Good Wife). However, a massive financial scam throws Diane’s plans into flux and also shakes things up for her young associate. The series also stars Erica Tazel (Roots, Justified), Sarah Steele (The Good Wife), and Justin Bartha (The Hangover, Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life).

Fans of The Good Wife will certainly enjoy this follow-up series from the same creators. It has the same look and feel of the original series and finds that nice blend of drama and humor. I was instantly reminded of why I thoroughly enjoyed The Good Wife (save for the finale). The premiere sets up some interesting new characters and dynamics, and the episode definitely left me wanting to see more. The big question is whether or not people will be willing to shell out the money for CBS All Access in order to continue watching the show. Only time will tell, but at least CBS is giving folks a chance to check out this series premiere for free on CBS tonight.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording To Tell the Truth, The Simpsons, Son of Zorn, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, Worst Cooks in America, The Walking Dead, Big Little Lies, and Crashing.
