If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/25/19

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 #1

My first pick tonight is the new ABC drama Stumptown, starring Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother). Based on the “Stumptown” graphic novel series, the show follows Dex Parios, a strong, assertive, and sharp-witted army veteran with a complicated love life, gambling debt, and a brother to take care of in Portland, Oregon. Her military intelligence skills make her a great PI, but her unapologetic style puts her in the firing line of hardcore criminals and not quite in alliance with the police. The previews look great. Dex is a smart-mouthed smartass and I think she’s going to be someone we can all root for. I like the rest of the cast too: Michael Ealy (Almost Human, Suspect, Sleeper Cell), Camryn Manheim (Person of Interest, The Practice), Jake Johnson (New Girl), Adrian Martinez (The Blacklist: Redemption), plus Tantoo Cardinal and newcomer Cole Sibus.

Be sure to watch tonight’s episode, “Forget It Dex, It’s Stumptown,” on ABC at 10/9c.

Last week was Gina’s last week at the 99 on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Tying back to the previous episode, she took Jake’s advice and decided to spread her wings and fly. Much to Holt’s dismay, she didn’t have concrete plans for her future – basically anything that would then make her a millionaire. During his time with her, while they played game after game of chess, Holt tried to talk her out of it, but she stuck to her guns. The funniest part of the episode was Gina and Jake trying to get to Mario Lopez at the Manhattan Club and then having him show up at the “hungry monkeys” party only to be turned away. It was a sweet episode, seeing her spend time with all (okay, most…poor Hitchcock & Sully. LOL) of them – or in Terry’s case, giving him a subscription to the Yogurts of the World Club.

I love this show, and I love that the move to NBC didn’t change it. It’s still the same show we’ve always known and loved – funny and quick=witted with a little bit of heart.

On tonight’s episode, “A Tale of Two Bandits,” Terry believes the Pontiac Bandit is stealing cars again, but Jake is convinced his friend wouldn’t do that. The rest of the squad fight to keep Shaw’s a police bar after some firemen stake their claim to it. Craig Robinson & Rob Riggle guest star.

See if Terry or Jake are correct about Doug Judy tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, The Titan Games, Top Chef, Dr. Pimple Popper, Will & Grace, Beat Bobby Flay, & S.W.A.T.

Last time on S.W.A.T., when a Mexican federal agent undercover with a drug-dealing gang went missing, Jessica Cortez and Chris went undercover down in Mexico to try to find him and rescue him. Cortez was undercover with them before and helped bring some of the old guard to justice, so she was their “in” with the gang again. The rest of the SWAT team stayed back in LA to try to track the missing agent there at home. It was rough for them because Jessica and Chris had to go in without any coms whatsoever. Jessica had to play up a relationship with the new head of the gang, and it all worked great…until it didn’t. They found out where the guy was being held just before their cover was blown, but it all worked out. The team found him safe (not unharmed, but better off than it could have been!) and Cortez and Chris got back home safely themselves. Meanwhile, Hondo visited his mom to help her around the house, and she talked with him about some of the rough time he’s going through. After his breakups with Cortez and then the attorney, Hondo is beginning to spiral emotionally, I guess, and that starts to affect his work on tonight’s episode, which should be interesting, especially since Deacon is having such bad money problems, given the issues with the house and the new baby on the way. So that should be fun to see…

On tonight’s episode, “Encore,” the SWAT team races to find a militant group that escaped their capture months earlier, when the criminals take hostages in exchange for a $500 million ransom from five corporations they deem corrupt. Also, Hondo’s emotional turmoil begins to affect his team leadership.

See if the team can find the bad guys tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, The Titan Games, Top Chef, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dr. Pimple Popper, Will & Grace, & Beat Bobby Flay.

Things are crazy heated right now on SEAL Team going into tonight’s fall finale. Last week began moments after the week ended, with the team scrambling after being surrounded by the bad guys, who shot off a rocket into one of their vehicles. They were able to grab their previous target, Lazo, and eventually took cover at a local church, tying up the priest in case he was in the with cartel (turns out he wasn’t) and patching up Lazo, who’d been shot. They and the others quickly realized they’d been set up and that someone from the inside was feeding information to Doza. Turns out they were right. The guys thought it was Martinez (who later succumbed to his injuries), but turned out to be Rita, Mandy’s Mexican counterpoint. Apparently Doza had captured her sister and nieces. Thankfully, although who knows why, but she left Mandy there alive at Carla Reyes’s place before she disappeared. Lazo had been asking for his last rites, but Jason refused until he gave up info on Doza’s whereabouts. Just as the rest of the bad guys arrived and began shooting up the church from outside, Lazo caved and gave up the intel, but before the priest could administer them, Lazo died. And just before Jason and the guys were overtaken, Blackburn and the others arrived and shot them, saving the team’s hides.

So now the guys have to get to the place Lazo spilled about Doza’s whereabouts. Maybe then finally this story line will be wrapped. I’ve liked some of it, disliked some, but I’m ready to move on. Hopefully when the show comes back after the break, enough time will have passed that Jason is healing from Alana’s death and not as cranky and things between him and the team and him and Mandy are back to normal. All the bickering and biting and questioning of decisions is getting old really fast!

On tonight’s episode, “Prisoner’s Dilemma,” the hunt for Andres Doza comes to a head when the SEAL Team makes one last ditch effort to find and capture the leader of one of the most powerful and lethal drug cartels in Mexico.

To see if the guys can capture Doza, tune in to CBS at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Ellen’s Game of Games, The Goldbergs, American Housewife, Guy’s Grocery Games, Modern Family, Single Parents, & Criminal MInds.

Among other things, one of South Park’s trademark moves over the last two decades has been really over-the-top holiday episodes, and last week’s Halloween episode completely delivered! There were two initial plot threads that they eventually sewed together wonderfully, and the whole thing was narrated by future Kenny, in a meta-irony move. For years Kenny’s gimmick (other than reincarnation) has been how he’s always wearing that orange hoodie and we can’t make out all the foul-mouthed stuff he says. So hearing him reminisce about the “last great Halloween” like he was Kevin Arnold on The Wonder Years was hilarious.

The one plot centered on how these free scooters that had popped up all over town terrorized and infuriated the usually calm guidance counselor Mr. Mackey. He dragged the thousands of free “leave ’em anywhere” scooters into the woods, but they all came back the next day. The only thing you needed to use the scooters was a smart phone, as they were powered by a phone app. Which was seriously impacting Kenny because he was too poor to have a smart phone. All of the other kids his age would be using the free scooters to expand their trick or treating range, and he’d be left in the proverbial dust.

When Kenny went to Mr. Mackey with his problem, they both realized the phone app was their biggest issue, so they set out to destroy the local cellphone tower. Another funny thing they did with Kenny for this episode, as I guess they had to, was make his voice a lot less muffled as he and Mr. Mackey “saved the day” so to speak. It was South Park in a very self-aware moment, to say the least. Once the tower was destroyed, Kenny rejoined his best friends, who could no longer use the scooters, and they went on to have the “last great Halloween” together. For costume selection, I vote that Cartman won for his rad rendition of Snake Plisken, main character in the Escape From… films. This was an instant classic that won’t be enough to stop them when they try to #CancelSouthPark; (That hashtag, btw, is a joke that they run on Twitter to send you extra South Park promo tweets!)

On tonight’s episode, “Time to Get Cereal,” when dead citizens start popping up all over town, the boys realize they need Al Gore’s help. The boys are willing to do almost anything to save the town and themselves but it may just be too late.

Don’t miss another fun episode tonight on Comedy Central at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, the season finale of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, American Horror Story, and Stan Against Evil (which I just discovered and am catching up on now).
