If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/2/11

It’s Friday! That means it’s the start of a 3 day weekend tonight, which is fantastic, but it also means there is almost nothing on tonight. Megan is still gone (she’s gotten moved, but they can’t hook up her internet/TV/phone for another week! Eek!), and Lisa really doesn’t have anything to recommend tonight, so you’re stuck with—I mean, graced by just me & Kyle tonight. Enjoy! 😉

Last week’s Haven had one of my favorite “troubles” storylines ever. There have been some great ones, but to make it so ALL the mean in that family were cursed with this strange affliction? Bizarre and absolutely, truly heart breaking. I loved how Audrey convinced Nathan to go out to the house to search for the “kidnapped” boy and how they broke in. And Audrey saving the boy just in time, when he was gasping for breath outside the water… Damn. I really loved it. We also now know Evie is working with the Rev (which I’d suspected, but we saw for certain last week), and Duke learned one more piece of information—about his father and his past. All in all, it was a terrific episode.

Tonight, Audrey, Nathan, and Duke fall into a deadly trap after investigating a series of violent crimes that are believed to be connected to an unassuming banker and discovering the existence of an evil clone with sinister intentions. (So I read that, and immediately, my thoughts went to Evie as the evil clone, and in my head, I said, “Evil Francie!” Damn Alias memories…)

Check it out tonight at 10/9c on Syfy! Learn where to find episodes online of Haven @ Clicker.

Kyle’s Choice

I would definitely have picked Strike Back for tonight, however, instead of airing a new episode tonight, Cinemax is showing a marathon of the first three episodes—a great chance to catch up!

I have really been enjoying Friends With Benefits, and it’s a shame that NBC is just burning off the episodes. In each episode, Ben (Ryan Hansen) and Sara (Danneel Harris) try their luck in the dating world, only for it to end in some hilarious disaster. You know if this show had actually gone on, this would have been like a Ross & Rachel, “When are they going to get together?” type of thing (though romantically, not physically, as that’s been done). My favorite character has to be Aaron, the rich, nerdy engineer who’s a bit shy and awkward with the ladies—he is so funny. This is such an amusing show (though not really appropriate for 8pm) and definitely worth checking out, even though it’s on its way out.

Tonight, we get two more of the five remaining episodes. First up is “The Benefit of Being Shallow,” in which Sara misses compliments about her appearance when she starts dating a blind man, Ben dates a girl with an affinity for large hats, and Aaron spends time with an older woman.

Then it’s “The Benefit of Avoiding the Mindbanger,” where Sara and Ben start losing themselves when they fall back into relationships with their exes, and Riley is surprised by Aaron’s efforts to impress a woman with his money.

See the new episodes tonight on NBC at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c! Learn where to find episodes online of Friends With Benefits @ Clicker.
