If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/18/10

This is up a little later today, and frankly it’s all my (aka Megan) fault! My friends threw me a surprise party last night for my birthday (which isn’t until Monday), and I was sleeping off the night’s activities this morning. 🙂 I’m getting too old for that kind of night. 😀 I apologize, and now I’ll get to my choice for tonight.

Megan’s Choice

Tonight I’m going to go with Drop Dead Diva on Lifetime at 9 pm. I adore this show, and the cast is hilarious. The show is a dramedy (i.e. drama/comedy), and it’s so entertaining. Brooke Elliott who plays the main character, Jane, is not only beautiful but she’s a fabulous actress, and singer as well.

For more on my choice and to read Jenny’s choice jump ahead.

Tonight Jane helps Grayson defend one of the singers of a famous pop duo and they decide to team up with the lawyer defending the other half of the duo, a woman named Vanessa. Problem is Jane gets distracted when Grayson and Vanessa hit it off both in and out of the courtroom. Meanwhile, Parker and Kim try to help a bed & Breakfast owner when he receives a really negative review.

Drop Dead Diva is quirky, funny and heart-warming all at the same time. There’s a little something for everyone and if you haven’t given it a shot yet, you should make tonight the night you fix that. 🙂 Tune in to Drop Dead Diva tonight at 9 pm on Lifetime and you will be a happy TV viewer. I promise.

Jenny’s Choice

A&E premiered a new show last week that I believe is destined to be a hit. It may very well be the show that pulls the network into the same realm as TNT for original dramas.

The Glades follows Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who gets shot by his captain after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his wife. After being exiled from the department, 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. Only this town outside the Florida Everglades isn’t quite as idyllic as he thought, as he finds people keep turning up murdered. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives to wear a badge.

Between practicing his short game, trying to get a date with Callie – a quick-witted, beautiful medical student with a 12 year-old son and a husband in prison – and trying to solve countless homicide cases, Longworth’s transition to his new surroundings is a bit more difficult than expected. He’s realizing the skies in this new town are always sunny…with a chance of homicide. The show 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).

On tonight’s episode, after Jim finds an abandoned airplane with a dead flight school teacher inside, he is led on a strange trail that includes a sexy graduate student studying exotic birds, a powerful drug dealer, and a pair of brothers who enjoy riding in airplanes. Don’t miss tonight’s episode on A&E at 10/9c!
