If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/31/16

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!

rushhour331smallNot all movies translate well into TV shows, but they keep putting them out. One such new show is tonight’s premiere of Rush Hour, starring Justin Hires (TripTank, Key and Peele) as maverick Detective Carter of the LAPD and Jon Foo as by-the-book Detective Lee from Hong Kong. In the movie, Det. Lee comes to the US to search for a missing young girl. In the show, he comes over to avenge his sister’s alleged death and learn more about her connection to a Chinese organized crime ring. Just like in the movie, Carter is a wisecracking cop who plays by his own rules and Lee is a reserved, honorable master martial artist with lightning-fast moves. Joining them is Wendie Malick (Hot in Cleveland, Just Shoot Me), who plays Carter’s boss, Captain Cole; Aimee Garcia (Dexter, Vegas, Trauma), who plays Sergeant “Didi” Diaz, Carter’s friend & former partner; and Page Kennedy (Backstrom, Weeds), a low-level offender who runs with a tough crowd but is an informant for Carter…and his cousin.

I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and I really enjoyed it. It’s not perfect, but I like the characters and their chemistry, and I like the story line that we learn in the first episode. The action is fun too, just like the movie. If you enjoy this type of show, you should definitely give it a shot!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” cultures clash and tempers flare when Detective Lee, a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police detective, is paired with maverick LAPD Detective Carter in Los Angeles to investigate the theft of Chinese artifacts.

Meet Detectives Lee and Carter tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Man vs Child: Chef Showdown, Cooks vs Cons, 2 Broke Girls, & Beat Bobby Flay.

archer42smallTonight, the sixth season of the FX spy comedy Archer comes to a close. In last week’s episode, a top CIA scientist had a clot in his brain, and Archer and friends were chosen to be miniaturized and injected into the man’s body, where they would pilot a ship to his brain and blast away the clot. It was important that they be injected as close to the brain as possible, as they only have 60 minutes before the miniaturization wears off. However, during the injection process, an outraged Krieger smashed into the room, causing the microscopic Archer and his crew to be injected into the patient’s foot instead, leaving them with a much longer and more difficult journey!

While it’s sad to see another fun season of this show come to an end, I’m really looking forward to seeing how tonight’s second half of the finale plays out. Now that the gang is actually on their voyage, do any of them have any knowledge of human physiology or biology? How are they going to find their way to this man’s brain to save him? Will they save him, or will this end in one big creepy, comical, literal mess on the operating room table?

On tonight’s episode, “Drastic Voyage: Part II,” the conclusion of the Season 6 finale sees the end of the gang’s most incredible voyage.

Check out the season finale tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Odd Couple, Grey’s Anatomy, American Crime, The Blacklist, The Slap, Bones, Dig, and Olympus.

archer18smallTonight, Archer returns for another season on FX. Last year, things took quite a drastic turn for our favorite, politically incorrect spies. ISIS was disbanded by the government, and Archer and the gang had to find a new way to make a living. So they took the huge stockpile of cocaine that was leftover from their previous missions, formed their own drug cartel, and soon found themselves the targets of other rival drug outfits. Meanwhile, Cheryl reinvented herself, becoming the hit country singer Cherlene, and Lana had a baby girl and revealed to Archer that he is the father.

In the end, we found out that the entire “Archer Vice” mission was really a deep-cover mission to assist the CIA. So where does that leave our favorite spies this season? Are they now working for the CIA? Will they form a new agency? (I can’t really see Archer working for the government.) And how will Archer and Lana having a baby together affect their relationship/work? I’m looking forward to another season of craziness!

On tonight’s season premiere, “The Holdout,” Archer must salvage a crashed plane.

See how the season starts tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, A to Z, Parenthood, and Babylon.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/28/13

Earlier this week was the San Diego Comic-Con hotel lottery—the mad dash to submit your hotel picks as fast as humanly possible, followed by a week of stress while you wait to find out if you were lucky enough to get assigned a close hotel (or ANY hotel, for that matter). Fortunately, I’ve been able to keep my mind off that as all of the great new TV this week has been keeping me busy. While it’s a somewhat light-night of TV tonight now that February sweeps is pretty much done, there’s still quite a few shows to choose from.

archer228smallArcher has been really great this season, so I was thrilled to see yesterday’s news that the series has been picked up for a fifth season! Last week, Ray, Cyril, and Archer’s Jeep got stuck in the Turkmenistan desert. Having forgotten to pack toilet paper, Archer, of course, decided to use their only map. While he was doing his deed, Sterling was bitten in the groin by a rattlesnake. The venom caused Archer to have a series of hallucinations in which English actor James Mason showed him “The Real Archer.” We got glimpses into Archer’s younger days—such as how his collegiate and professional lacrosse dreams were crushed when an older woman seduced and shot him. And during another one of his fever dreams, Sterling was just about to discover who his real father was when he was jerked back into reality by the anti-venom.

While last week was a fun (and bizarre) Archer origin story, it also brought back the series-long mystery of the identity of Archer’s father. I suspect this is a question that won’t be answered until the series finale (if at all). It was great last week to see Cheryl calling Lana out for that fact she has only been staying with ISIS because she wants to take over when Mallory dies. This show is so much fun, and it always shocks me what they are able to get away with. I can’t wait to see what the ISIS gang gets up to tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Live and Let Dine,” Anthony Bourdain guest stars when Archer, Lana, and Cyril go on an undercover mission in a celebrity chef’s kitchen.

To see all the fun, tune in to FX at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Archer @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Zero Hour, Community, 1600 Penn, Legit, and King of the Nerds.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/17/13

I’m in sunny Florida on a family vacation, but I’m already wondering how I’m going to catch up on all of this week’s new TV! Tonight, there are a lot of shows returning, including the rescheduled double-episode Haven season finale and a couple fun new cable shows I’m interested in checking out. I might need to stage a Hunger Games-type battle for the TV remote! Here’s what we suggest you check out tonight…

Tonight, I spy an all-new season of Archer on FX! When we last saw the ISIS gang, they had been sent into outer space on a mission and somehow managed to get their space shuttle back to Earth after the rest of the crew died. Archer made it through without a scratch, while the rest of the gang was nursing bumps and bruises, and Ray found himself once again wheelchair-bound.

What I love about this show is that it’s not afraid to be totally politically incorrect and crass, and it holds nothing back. Archer is most certainly an adult cartoon, and I’m often shocked at what they are able to get on the air! I really enjoy how the series explores both sides of the spy world. It is able to garner such hilarious moments from both the actual spy missions as well as the behind-the-scenes office politics. The voice cast is extremely talented, and I can’t wait to see what the ISIS gang gets up to this season.

On tonight’s premiere, “Fugue and Riffs,” Archer visits a spa for a weekend in an attempt to rid himself of amnesia.

See the funny tonight on FX at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Archer @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Last Resort, Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, The Office, 1600 Penn, Legit, Sweet Genius, King of the Nerds, Suits, and Haven.
