If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/15/19

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!

Jenny’s Choice

My pick today is the new comedy on Hulu, Dollface. According to Hulu, the show “follows Jules (Kat Dennings, 2 Broke Girls), a young woman who – after being dumped by her longtime boyfriend – must deal with her own imagination in order to literally and metaphorically re-enter the world of women and rekindle the female friendships she left behind.”

I’m not entirely sure what that means. It’s rather a bland description. But the cast is what makes this interesting for me. Beside Kat Dennings, who I’ve missed since 2 Broke Girls, it also stars Brenda Song (who I watched on The Suite Life of Zach and Cody) and Goran Visnjic (who I LOVED on ER, but I never watched Timeless, Extant, or Red Widow, so I haven’t really seen him since), as well as new-to-me Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars) and Esther Povitsky (Alone Together). I’m not sure I’ll actually watch the show, although I’m sure I’ll probably try the first episode because of Brenda Song and Goran Visnjic.

The entire first season is out now on Hulu.

I’ll also be watching American Housewife, Nashville Squares, Hawaii Five-0, & Blue Bloods.

Today, The Toys That Made Us returned for a third season on Netflix. It’s a highly entertaining documentary series about the toys that we all know and grew up with. Each episode takes an in-depth look at the story behind the creation of a different iconic toy line and how these toys changed the companies responsible for them. The filmmakers make use of fun actor reenactments, archival TV footage, and brand-new interviews with authors, toy enthusiasts, and the original toy designers and executives who were responsible for bringing these product lines to fruition. The participants recount some fascinating stories surrounding the invention of these toys.

I really enjoyed the first two seasons of the series, which took a look at Star Wars, G.I. Joe, He-Man, Barbie, Star Trek, Transformers, LEGO and Hello Kitty. This season, the series will delve into the history of Power Rangers, My Little Pony, Wrestling, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It should be another fun and interesting 4 episodes, and I look forward to checking them out today.

The season is available now on Netflix.

I’ll also be watching/recording American Housewife, Fresh Off the Boat, The Blacklist, and today’s new episodes of Disney+ originals Encore!, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, The Mandalorian, and The World According to Jeff Goldblum.

Last week’s episode of Hawaii Five-0 had me crying in the end, which is not a normal occurrence for this show, but watching Steve say goodbye to his mother as she was dying was heart-wrenching. Steve and his mom have always had a tumultuous relationship, but at the center of it all, he loved her deeply. He went on a mission to save his mother from an assignment he was worried she’d gotten too deep into, but in the end it all went sideways and she was shot and killed. In all of her work, she did manage to keep all the files so that the head of the crime organization she had infiltrated could be brought down. It was a hard episode to watch, but I’m hoping going forward, Steve will be able to deal with the loss and move forward to be the amazing leader and hero he is. On a side note, I have to say I was really enjoying the look of Alex O’Loughlin with the rugged beard he was sporting last episode – my television boyfriend was looking sexy as usual.

On tonight’s episode, “Ne’e aku, ne’e mai ke one o Punahoa (That Way and This Way Shifts the Sand of Punahoa),” Five-0 teams up with a DEA agent to search for a killer whose plane crashed in the jungle with $10 million worth of heroin on board. Also, Grover is thrilled when his niece Siobhan comes to try out for the University of Hawaii basketball team. Basketball star Metta World Peace guest stars as himself. Series star Chi McBride (Lou Grover) co-wrote this episode.

Find out how the joint mission with the DEA goes tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Magnum P.I., and Charmed.
