If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/20/10

I don’t know about you, but I’m so excited the new season is starting! There are a TON of shows on tonight. In fact, our recommendations are the premieres of 3 of brand new shows, so let’s get to it!

Jenny’s Choice

One of the most anticipated new shows of the new season is Hawaii Five-0 on CBS at 10/9c. This is the contemporary take on the classic series about a new elite federalized task force whose mission is to wipe out the crime that washes up on the Islands’ sun-drenched beaches. It stars Alex O’Loughlin (Three Rivers, Moonlight) as Detective Steve McGarrett, Scott Caan (Entourage) as Detective Danny “Danno” Williams (yes, as in the line: Book ’em Danno!), Daniel Dae Kim (Lost) as Chin Ho Kelly, and Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica, The Cleaner) as Chin’s cousin, Kono. The reviews so far have been great, and any show starring Alex O is worth watching. 😉

Jump with us to read more about tonight’s episode of Hawaii Five-0 and to see Megan & Lisa’s recommendations!

On tonight’s episode of Hawaii Five-0, upon returning to Hawaii to investigate his father’s murder, a decorated Naval officer is recruited by the Governor to head up a new elite police task force, and their first case is tracking a weapons dealer connected to the murder. Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 10/9c!

Megan’s Choice

While there are a few favorites returning (ie. House and Castle), I’m going to suggest you watch the fabulous new show on NBC, The Event.

I had the priviledge of seeing the pilot already, and let me tell you, it is edge of your seat excitement the whole way through. I was capitvated by the intrigue and mystery, not to mention the stellar cast. Jason Ritter (Joan of Arcadia) is fabulous as Sean Walker, the sweet boy next door who unwittingly starts to unravel one of the greatest government conspiracies of all time. Blair Underwood is daper and strong as President Elias Martinez, and don’t forget one of my favorite stars from ER, Laura Innes. She plays Sophia Maguire, the leader of a group that is locked in a government holding facility for reasons we’re yet to know. Included in the cast is the loveable Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls) and the adorable Sarah Roemer (Disturbia).

In the pilot, you’re going to get introduced to a couple story lines, all of which are deliciously twisted with conspiracy and adventure. The show reminded me of what would have happened if you put the mystery of Lost together with the conspiracy and adventure of 24. I wasn’t expecting to love it but I do. The writers and executive producers are promising a great ride, but that they will also try to wrap up a bit of the story line each week, so that we’re not left with every mystery they introduce until the very last episode. 🙂

Everyone asks, “What is The Event?”, well tonight at 9/8c you can tune into NBC and watch the conspiracies unfold!

Lisa’s Choice

Saddle up and tune in to Lone Star at 9/8C on FOX.
