If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/9/10

This is such a busy week already, and it’s only the beginning of the fall season! Did anyone watch Hellcats last night? Wasn’t life changing but it was amusing. πŸ™‚ Let’s look at tonight now.

It’s the season finale of Rookie Blue tonight and I am actually a bit sad. I really like this show, that goodness it’s going off air just in time for the fall season or I’d have a boring Thursday night. πŸ™‚

Last week we saw Sam take Andy’s side when her father was a possible murder suspect, and we watched how Luke still managed to win Andy back. Hopefully things will look up these last two episodes.

In the first episode in the finale, titled In Blue,the rookies, will learn whether or not they’ve passed their evaluations and can keep their badges. Before Andy finds out if she passed, she has a scary experience involving the death of an unidentified girl.

Read more about the Rookie Blue season finale, and Jenny’s recommendation, after the jump.

In the second episode, Takedown, Andy and Chris make an arrest that compromises a major drug bust. Andy steps up, attempting to salvage the operation by going undercover with Swarek, but a critical change in plans puts both of their lives in danger. Back at the station, Dov learns more about his girlfriend than he wanted to know – forcing him to chose between police work and his love life.

Both episodes sound exciting, and I can’t wait to watch can you? Tune in to ABC at 9/8c to watch the 2 hour season finale.

Jenny’s Choice

So many choices, so little time! Ack! As much as I want to recommend the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries… I’m not. Why? One word:
Nikita (Ok, two more words: Shane West *grin*)

Tonight’s series premiere of Nikita on the CW at 9/8c is my choice. When she was a deeply troubled teenager, Nikita (Maggie Q) was rescued from death row by a secret U.S. agency known only as Division, who trained her as a spy and assassin. Nikita was eventually betrayed by the only people she thought she could trust. Now, after three years in hiding, Nikita is seeking retribution and making it clear to her former boss, Percy (Xander Berkeley, 24) and her former friends Michael (Shane West, E.R.) and Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) that she will stop at nothing to expose and destroy their covert operation.

Division continues to recruit and train other young people, among them Jaden (Tiffany Hines, Bones) and Thom (Ashton Holmes, Boston Legal), erasing all evidence of their former lives and turning them into cold and efficient killers. One of these new recruits, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca) is a beautiful girl with a violent past and a story not so different from Nikita’s. The recruits all spend part of their training with Amanda (Melinda Clarke, The O.C.), a master manipulator who can turn any ugly duckling into a swan and any bleeding heart into a killer.

    Rookie blue is one of my new favorite shows but I have to say I was disappointed in last nights episodes.

  2. Jenny says:

    Jewls, that’s what I’ve heard. πŸ™ I was saving them up for this weekend, but.. damn! πŸ™

  3. Jewls says:

    The way the first episode ended seemed like a better finale than the actual finale. Not to mention how the writers took the Andy/Sam relationship in the opposite direction than the story seemed to take it. After what happens in the last episode it only makes sense for her to realize her feelings for him—heck it was written all over her face—but instead she continues to go forward with Luke who doubted her yet again?! It just didn’t have the authentic feel to it t hat other episodes had.

    I actually disagree πŸ™‚ I thought that the first episode was great, but the second gave us a few great things that I was still happy for. Yes she loves Sam but she’s scared to admit it. Luke is a safe and easy choice. She’ll get there. Andy is so head over heels for Sam and in scene where she thought he was gone, it was painful to watch. That’s a pain she’s not ready to handle yet. It would be too easy for them to be together now. But I was happy that the other characters got some story lines that were moving, and I’m glad Gail finally showed some emotion πŸ™‚ Was it the best season finale ever? No but I still enjoyed it a lot.

    You have a point but at the same time she didn’t have to MOVE IN with luke. If she is so head over heals how can she keep progressing in her relationship with luke? At the very least realizing what Same means to her should of made her rethink her current relationship. They’re just setting it up for the typical story line where he starts to move on then she realizes shes going to lose him, breaks lukes heart, and has to try and win him back. If I thought I had just lost the man who meant the world to me I wouldn’t waste another day that I could spend being with him.

    I do however agree with you about the other characters—I thought their storylines were nice.
