If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/7/19

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

The Unicorn is one of those shows that I forget between episodes just how much I adore it. I don’t know why. It happens occasionally with different shows. Usually one a season. Like, you can ask me midweek if I like it, and I’ll say, “Oh, it’s cute and funny and sweet.” But ask me right after, and I just gush about it. Well, consider me gushing. The cast on this show is brilliant. Walton Goggins is such a great fit here, but his friends really just work. And last week, when Wade realized his daughter Grace got the lead in the school musical simply because the teacher wanted her to feel better after her mother’s passing, it was so sweet watching him talk to Grace about it and tell her she could quit but then be so proud and nervous for her when she didn’t. She proved that she could do it and do it well, and I swear, that Seymour song was stuck in my head for DAYS. My other favorite part of that episode was Natalie trying to sneak more juice boxes than she was allowed and Wade using his parental vision to shut her down. As a parent myself, that just cracked me up. And of course, there was Michelle and Ben practically forcing Forrest and Delia to “volunteer” for the first time ever by signing them up to work the snack bar at the girls’ soccer games. Delia just went spastic as a pediatrician, having to give kids all that sugar and processed food. She even went so far as to go to Whole Foods and bring back…snacks like kale chips. Gag. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Three Men Out,” when Wade visits a local hot spot to meet people instead of using his dating app, Forrest and Ben decide to be his “wing men.”

See how it goes with Wade’s “wing men” tonight on CBS at 8:31/7:31c.

On last week’s episode of Superstore, Mateo’s lawyer was at Cloud 9 collecting testimonials for Mateo’s bond hearing, but most of the statements about how wild and fun he could be would probably do him more harm than good. So Amy tried to get the co-workers to embellish, making Mateo sound more kind and generous, but this also backfired. Eventually, she and Cheyenne tracked down Jeff and used an old photo to manipulate his emotions and get him to agree to making a statement about how he heard the company execs illegally ordering the ICE raid. Meanwhile, Sandra was convinced that Dina was throwing her a bachelorette party, despite the fact that she kept adamantly denying it, since it wasn’t part of her official Maid of Honor job responsibilities as defined on the internet. Jonah felt bad and enlisted Garrett’s help in throwing a party. However, once Dina found out, she was upset, accused them of trying to make her look bad, and reluctantly agreed to throw the party…but having Sandra be responsible for most of her own party. At the same time, Jerry awkwardly asked Garrett to be his Best Man, even though the two hardly knew one another. When it came time for the party, Sandra was once again overshadowed – her party had been re-purposed into a celebration of the fact that Mateo had been released on bond.

Last week, there were once again stirrings of unionization, and with Jeff preparing a statement about the ICE raid, it looks like we are gearing up for an employee mutiny this season. The show does a great job of mixing in these more serious topics while also keeping things funny. I have my doubts that Sandra will ever actually get her wedding day, but I’m hoping that something finally works out for her!

On tonight’s episode, “Forced Hire,” when Amy hires Dina’s nemesis Colleen, Dina blackmails Garrett into making Colleen’s life a living hell; Jonah is forced to befriend Marcus to unionize the warehouse guys.

See how Dina blackmails Garrett tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, A Million Little Things, Young Sheldon, The Unicorn, Carol’s Second Act, Evil, Perfect Harmony, The Good Place, and Chrisley Knows Best.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/26/19

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 series premiere of Evil. If you know me, you know I’m not at all into dramas or even most supernatural shows, but this is different. It’s a bit of a cop drama mixed with the supernatural, and I couldn’t help but watch when they made the screeners available.

From Michelle & Robert King (The Good Wife/The Good Fight & BrainDead), this is a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion. Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers) is a skeptical psychologist basically single mother of four (her husband is off supervising climbing tours of some big mountain overseas, so he’s rarely home). She starts off the show as an expert witness for the District Attorney, but after being pushed to lie on the stand, she quits and a little reluctantly joins forces with David Acosta (Mike Colter), a former adventure-seeking journalist now studying to be a priest and tasked by the Church to assess unexplained phenomena – possessions, miracles, etc. Their job is to figure out if it’s supernatural or if there’s a logical explanation. Along with Kristen and David is Ben Shakir, another skeptic who uses his computer and carpentry skills to figure out/prove that what seems to be supernatural is, in reality, something done by humans or naturally in the environment.

Kristen begins having night terrors, which are SUPER freaky, and one of the more scary characters is Leland Townsend, a man who (CBS’s words but oh so appropriate) “oozes menace” and threatens Kristen and her daughters. David tries to tell Kristen that Townsend is in reality evil, but she doesn’t believe it…until she does. The road to that is spooky and creepy and…everything good that is this show.

I’ve seen the first few episodes already, and it’s scared the pants off me. I loved it way more than I thought I was going to, so I highly recommend at least checking out the first couple of episodes! Also starring are Christine Lahti, Kurt Fuller, Brooklyn Shuck, Dalya Knapp, Maddy Crocco, & Skylar Gray.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” forensic psychologist Kristen Bouchard is hired by the Catholic Church to work with David Acosta, a priest-in-training, and contractor Ben Shakir, to determine whether a serial killer is possessed by a demon or merely a psychopath. Kristen finds that she has a taste for the work and is invited to join the team on a permanent basis.

Don’t miss the premiere tonight on CBS at 10/9c.
