If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/30/11

Thursdays never looked so good! With the anticipation of the 4th of July coming up, it’s hard to sit still in front of the TV, but Thursday night is going to be a great starter for the weekend, when you tune in to a wonderful lineup of shows! After a long week, nothing can be better than taking it easy by relaxing and enjoying some serious TV down time. Gear up for all new episodes of Thursday night shows you won’t want to miss a moment of. – Lisa

If you’re looking for a brand new show to enter your TV watching lineup that’s going to make your Thursday night blues go away, then Suits is the right choice. Harvey Spector is the best closer in New York City, and he’s on top of his game when it comes to closing mergers, acquisitions, and even divorces. With all of his success, he is offered a promotion to senior partner at his firm, Pearson Harden. However, with the promotion, Harvey will need a large amount of help. His boss, Jessica Pearson, has enlisted him to help hunt down a new associate.

Mike Ross isn’t your average Harvard Law School student…he actually isn’t even enrolled there! That doesn’t stop him though from taking the bar exam for Harvard graduates in order to make a little money on the side. He’s quite the prodigy, as he is phenomenally brilliant. He’s got a photographic memory. If he reads something, he remembers it for life!

When Mike’s grandmother becomes ill, in order to help her, he has to raise a lot of money quickly. Here’s where his pot-dealing best bud comes into play. In a blotched drug deal, Mike has to escape some nasty drug-buying thugs. When he flees the scene, he ends up falling into a round of Harvey Spector’s associate interviews. Mike easily impresses Harvey, and with that, the two become the finest law duo in the toughest law town. Mike gets situated at his new job at Pearson Harden and becomes acquainted with those who will help him and those who may possibly stand in his way.

Tonight, on an all new episode, an open and shut case becomes anything but when Harvey ends up accused of an inappropriate liaison with a married woman. Louis forces Mike to make a very difficult decision, one that could possibly net the firm a very wealthy client, but at the same time cost him Harvey’s respect.

Last week’s episode of Rookie Blue was fantastic, wasn’t it? Andy dealing with the young woman getting shot right beside her was truly heartbreaking. Dov standing up for the dead girl’s mother and her choice to donate her daughter’s organs was fantastic. I told my husband, “I can only pray that I could be that strong if, God forbid, I was ever in her position.” The introduction of Luke’s Detective ex-girlfriend will put a great twist in the love triangle (and as Ben Bass and Missy Peregrym state: It now becomes like a quadrangle. lol) of Luke, Andy, and Sam. And finally…what can I say about that two or three seconds of Sam grabbing Andy and pulling her behind the trailer, then getting *this* close to kissing her as he looks deep into her eyes, his fear clearly evident? Gah! Killed me! I am so freakin thrilled this show is back, I can’t stand it!

On tonight’s episode, Andy and Gail go undercover as cocktail waitresses at a drug-infected club, but they wind up getting more than they bargained for. Traci wrestles for feelings for her old flame, Dov deals with a complaint filed against him, and Andy opens up to Sam.

Last week’s season premiere of Rookie Blue started off with a bang, literally! I continue to really enjoy this Canadian import police drama–and especially like that they admit they are in Toronto and don’t try to pass it off as a US city. That’s one pet peeve I have–when Canadian shows try to pretend they take place in America, despite obvious landmarks and guest actors with heavy Canadian accents. I mean, what’s that all aboot?! Rookie Blue is a solid police drama with interesting cases of the week, but also delves into the personal lives of the cops, without turning it into a “who slept with who at work?” type of drama.

In tonight’s episode, “Might Have Been,” Andy and Gail go under cover at a drug-riddled club; Traci struggles with her feelings for detective Barber; a woman files a complaint against Dov; Andy opens up to Sam.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to like it with Michael back at the CIA, but last week’s premiere of Burn Notice gave me hope. There was plenty of Fiona and Sam, and even a few cute scenes with his mom. Last week was all about a CIA mission, which kind of scared me, cause I love that part of what makes Burn Notice what it is, is the cases of the week they take on, helping out the “little guy.” But from the description of tonight’s new episode, I don’t think I’ll have much to worry about. Plus, did anyone else see the fun, sexy, hot scene between Michael & Fiona last week? If they continue to have that occasionally, I’ll be one happy girl! 😉

On tonight’s episode, Michael offers to help a woman track down her cousin, who has gotten deeply involved in the criminal business of human trafficking. His planned rescue attempt grows more complicated when his mother becomes a participant.

By the way, check out the new interactive Burn Notice graphic novel, which picks up where Season 4 left off and follows Michael as he tracks down the organization that burned him. The 12 chapters in Volume 1 (there’s 1 new chapter every week!) will include all of your favorite characters from the series, as well as some familiar enemies. Burn Notice Graphic Novel

I was spoiled by last week’s double-feature of new Futurama episodes. Tonight, we are back to only one new episode a week. Ever since Futurama returned via Direct-to-DVD films/new seasons on Comedy Central, it definitely seems to push the envelope more as far as adult themes are concerned. However, the writing is more restrained in this regard, when compared to another one of tonight’s shows, Wilfred, which I felt was just going for shock value in last week’s premiere. Futurama is so much fun, I just can’t recommend it enough for any Sci-Fi fan.

In tonight’s episode, “Ghost in the Machines,” Bender’s disembodied software haunts the Planet Express building after he dies.
