If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/7/11

I’m SOOO freakin excited it’s Thursday, because there are not only a bunch of great new episodes tonight on TV, but it’s the return of one of my favorites in a string of 7 consecutive all new eps. Yay! Sorry this is up so late today, but I actually slept for more than 3 hours for the first time in almost 3 weeks. Yay for that, too! Now, there really is tons on tonight, so let’s see what Lisa, Jamie, & I think you should be watching!

Jenny’s Choice

I kind of had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to recommend tonight, because there really is so much on. I always recommend The Mentalist, because Patrick Jane is one of my favorite characters on TV. But tonight, Nikita sees Michael finally confronting Nikita in her lair about Alex and blackmailing her into helping find the people who killed his family, and I’m always thrilled when we get some direct Michael/Nikita action. Then on The Big Bang Theory, which is possibly my favorite comedy on TV, Sheldon and Amy make a big announcement, and the previews make it look like it’ll be HYSTERICAL. Finally, on Rules of Engagement, it’s a big ep a long time in the making. But…tonight, my heart belongs to Bones on FOX. Now, it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of this show. It’s also no secret that I wasn’t pleased with most of this season, up until the last couple of episodes. It’s back tonight in the first of seven consecutive new episodes, and it starts off strong with the “body farm” episode we’ve been hearing about for months. Yay!

On tonight’s episode, a recent flood causes seven pairs of dismembered feet to wash ashore on the U.S.-Canada border, but identification leads to a body farm and an expensive pair of sneakers. Cam gets in hot water after she makes college plans for her daughter. (If you remember, her daughter was making plans for college based on a boy, and Cam was NOT happy.)

Don’t miss what is sure to be a great episode on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

Jamie’s Choice

Who knew that David Spade would have another hit television show after Just Shoot Me? Well, it happened. People are tuning in to watch Rules of Engagement and genuinely enjoying it. The initial draw would be because of the banter between Russell (Spade) and Timmy (Adhir Kalyan) is brilliant. Then, there is Patrick Warburton, who plays the role of Jeff just as humorous and full of machismo as you’d expect from him. As Jeff’s wife, Audrey, Megyn Price is charming and nuerotic – the perfect combo of both. The final couple is lovably dumb Adam (Oliver Hudson) and sweet Jennifer (Bianca Kajlich).

Tonight’s episode of Rules of Engagement is just as laughable and charming as fans have come to adore about the show. To Jeff and Audrey’s happiness and fear, their surrogate (played by the cute – but butch in this role – Sara Rue) finds out that she is pregnant. If this baby turns out to be a girl, fans will enjoy seeing him freak out. How will he channel all his manliness with a little lady? Meanwhile, meticulous Timmy begins planning Adam and Jennifer’s wedding. I can picture Timmy being very specific and controlling with the preparations and maybe even overbearing when it comes to taste and selection.

Tune in to CBS at 8:30/7:30c to see if Jeff loses his cool (in a bad way) over baby news and if Jennifer and Adam put a hit on Timmy for a party planning powertrip. Learn where to find episodes online of Rules of Engagement @ Clicker.

Lisa’s Choice

You’ve waited for the break to be over long enough, and you barely made it through. Don’t wolf out… A brand new episode of The Vampire Diaries is just a few short hours away. New characters emerge to cause trouble for your favorite regulars, and blood boils once again. Death is once again knocking at the door of the residents of Mystic Falls, asking them to open their doors and extend an invitation.

Tonight, Jenna is devastated by Isobel’s (guest star Mia Kirshner) extremely unexpected arrival. Meanwhile, Damon and Jeremy team up in order to try and help Bonnie find a spell that will allow her to be able to harness her ancestors’ power.

Tune in to the CW at 8/7c to sink your teeth into an all new episode! Learn where to find episodes online of The Vampire Diaries @ Clicker.
