Couch Madness: 'Rage' - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote

Couch Madness: ‘Rage’

March 23, 2022 by  

In honor of the NCAA tournament season, Give Me My Remote is bringing back our TV-centric bracket, pitting similarly titled episodes against each other: Couch Madness! (Credit for the excellent name goes fellow reporter Chris Hayner.)

The seeding is simple: rather than quality of the hour, we’re going by air date (with the oldest episode getting the #1 slot and the newest getting #8). With Peak TV, this will not include every single show that has used this title; rather, we picked a selection from what was available.

The first round will run from Wednesday, March 23 through Friday, March 25. Round two will kick off on Monday, March 28, with the final face-off starting Thursday, March 31.

Last up? “Rage.” Keep reading for the bracket, episode descriptions (from IMDB), and the poll. (For the other episodes competing, check out all the brackets here!)

Couch Madness Rage

LAW & ORDER (1): “A smug African American stock broker who resents other people of his own race is accused of murder. However, he hires a high-profile civil rights attorney, who presents a “black rage” defense.”


CHICAGO P.D. (8): “When a P.D. informant is murdered, the team digs in to track down the perpetrator only to learn a shocking truth. Voight and Ruzek strategize to help Burgess.”

SILK STALKINGS (2): “Tom is intimidated by an old football teammate who’s helping with a murder investigation.”


9-1-1 (7): “Athena takes action after her family experiences a traumatic traffic stop; Buck’s suit against the city goes to arbitration; Eddie turns to Lena in his struggles with his anger issues.”

LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT (3): “Years ago Stabler was unable to get a conviction on a rape-murder case. Now the suspect is held and questioned once again, and Stabler is sure he is guilty. But can he keep his head straight enough to get a confession?”


NCIS: LOS ANGELES (6): “Callen and Sam continue their undercover mission to take down a white supremacist group that it’s believed to have procured nuclear material, while Kensi poses as Callen’s tattooed biker girlfriend; the moment Callen and Hetty first met is revealed.”

WITHOUT A TRACE (4): “The agents investigate the disappearance of Claire Hunter, a prep school teacher who was last seen at her gym the previous evening. She’d had a confrontation with a man at the gym who claims to have seen her subsequently getting into a car. Claire was well respected at her school and always went the extra mile as far as the students went. She had just broken up with her boyfriend Pete a fireman but that proves to be a dead end. When one of her 15 year-old students runs off with her, they can’t help but wonder is they’re having a relationship. It proves to be far more complicated than that with Claire having to come to terms with the parental abuse she suffered as a child and which her student now faces.”


SMALLVILLE (5): “Clark discovers the Green Arrow was shot while trying to save a couple from a carjacking, but Oliver denies he was injured. However, when Oliver starts displaying erratic behavior, Clark and Chloe investigate and discover he is taking a super-drug that causes his body to heal itself but has severe side effects. Lois continues to be oblivious to Oliver’s secret identity and begins to question her growing romance with him over his frequent disappearances. Meanwhile, Lana makes a shocking discovery that she’s pregnant that will impact her relationship with Lex.”
