If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/26/11

Who saw Rookie Blue last night? *raises hand* Who loved it? *raises two hands* Who is excited for next week’s episode?? Okay, well, I’m all out of hands, but I just have to say, from everything I’ve read about the next two weeks, it’s going to be even more exciting than anything we’ve ever seen before. Last night was such a great treat, what with Rookie Blue and Burn Notice on for me. Hopefully, tonight’s little bit on will be as great! There isn’t much, but what we have, we’re giving to you. Read on!

Last week on Haven, they wasted no time getting into the time loop storyline. I loved Audrey’s reaction to everything—from Duke in the morning, to the deaths, to realizing she wasn’t going to reawaken after Anson stepped in front of the car and was killed. It was an incredibly emotional episode for her. I also loved how she felt like Nathan was the only person she could tell about what was going on… Very telling, no? Still, one of my favorite parts of the episode was at the end, when Nathan told Duke about Chris being troubled and not to look at him and he wouldn’t experience the “man crush.” Duke’s reaction? *snicker* Priceless. And as emotional as it was when Audrey was looking in at the three men, the reaction Chris had when he went in and neither man would look at him was fantastic. Again, this show kept me glued to the television from minute one. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

On tonight’s episode, Audrey and Nathan investigate a mysterious drowning in a town where children seem to keep disappearing.

Last week’s Torchwood had a very different feel from recent episodes. It primarily focused on a flashback to Jack’s romantic relationship with a man named Angelo in 1927. In the current time, Gwen kidnapped Jack in order to trade him for her own abducted family. When they arrived at the hand-off, Esther and Rex were waiting with sniper rifles, to help Gwen & Jack. However, the mysterious woman holding Gwen’s family hostage didn’t seem phased by the guns and informed Jack that Angelo is behind The Blessing.

My guess is that Angelo probably caused Miracle Day to happen in an effort to make himself immortal so that he could spend eternity with Jack. I’m looking forward to tonight’s episode, where hopefully, we’ll get some more answers.

In tonight’s episode, “End of the Road,” Jack encounters a man he thought was dead, and Rex tries to prevent the collapse of society. Wayne Knight (Hot in Cleveland, Seinfeld) guest stars.

Last week’s episode of Strike Back was amazing. There was over-the-top action, such as Scott diving for (and catching) a bomb just before it hits the ground! Then there was the whole Keyser Söze moment as we discover the true identity of Latif. Strike Back is an action-packed drama with just enough mystery and comedy thrown in—it’s 24 meets the buddy action film, and I’m really enjoying it!

In tonight’s episode, Latif is trailed to South Africa. An IRA mercenary threatens a weapons-system designer, and Scott trades places with a computer hacker.

Delicious does not begin to sum up the awesome show that is Torchwood: Miracle Day. If you don’t know what it’s about here’s a run down.

It’s epic really. One day, nobody dies. No one in the whole world. Then the weirder thing is that it keeps on going. People get hurt, sick, and age, but never die. This causes resources to be low, and in four short months, the human race will no longer exist.

It’s not a natural event, is it? C.I.A Agent Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer, ER), investigates to see if it’s a global conspiracy. The answer is in an old, secret British institute. Rex keeps asking, “What is Torchwood?”, and he’s drawn into a world of adventure and a threat to change what it means to be human.

If that’s not enough to get you watching, you should simply be on board because John Barrowman (Doctor Who) as Captain Jack Harkness is perfection as usual. I cannot get enough, and neither should you.

On tonight’s episode, while society is on the verge of falling apart, Rex is forced to take drastic measures. Meanwhile, someone thought to be dead comes back to confront Jack. Wayne Knight (Hot in Cleveland, Seinfeld) guest stars.

Tune in to Starz at 10/9 c to see how the team deals with the drama. Learn where to find episodes online of Torchwood: Miracle Day @ Clicker.

    *raises both hands* i like where the Sam/Andy story is going and really enjoyed seeing Andy finally make a bold move!

    On another note, I could see Chris start hating the big city life again with the whole Dov/Gail thing and the fact that he has to coverup for his academy friend again. I could see him try to get back with Denise to revive his small town roots. I doubt the writers will go that route but thats where I would take the story!
