If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/11/10

It’s going to be a great night for television with the return of so many shows that were off last weekend for the holiday weekend. Let’s take a look at what Jenny and I are watching tonight.

I had a hard time choosing what to watch tonight, but I’m going to have to go with True Blood at 9/8c on HBO. It’s my sinful indulgence. Whether you love vampires, werewolves or interesting story lines you’ll love True Blood.

When we left off in our last new episode, Sookie had teamed up with the hot werewolf, Alcide, to start searching for Bill. Tara fell into bed with the vampire Franklin, who is there with less than good motives, and Layfayette got a new ride. Tonight, Sookie will go to an engagement party for Alcide’s ex (Brit Morgan), Tara takes a road trip with Franklin, Eric continues to search for Bill and Andy gets a promotion. I’m excited aren’t you? Tune into HBO tonight at 9 pm and get your fix of fangtastic drama.

For Jenny’s recommendation, jump ahead.

Jenny’s Choice

My family and I went to the movie theater a month or so ago to see Killers, and again last week to see Eclipse. Before each of the movies, they showed a bunch of… well, basically TV commercials for different TV shows. One of those was for a new series on A&E called The Glades. It immediately intrigued me, and I came home and looked it up online, to see that it is premiering tonight at 10/9c. The show is a character driven police procedural set in the fictional town of Palm Glade, Florida, stars Australian actor Matt Passmore (McLeod’s Daughters, Underbelly), Kiele Sanchez (Lost, Reunion), Carlos Gomez (Shark, Sleeper Cell) and Michelle Hurd (Law & Order SVU, Gossip Girl).

In The Glades, Passmore stars as Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former Captain’s wife is forced into exile. Longworth relocates to the sleepy, middle of nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida, where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. Yet life in this sleepy town is not as beautiful as it may seem.

Matt Passmore is adorably sexy, as is Kiele Sanchez (I’ve loved her for a long time), and the premise sounds great to me. From the preview I’ve seen, this is one you should definitely check out! Don’t miss it tonight on A&E at 10/9c.
