If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/3/11

I’m so excited it’s Monday. There is SO much fantastic TV on tonight, from the 2-hour season finale of Warehouse 13 to new episodes of some new fan favorites like Terra Nova & Hart of Dixie and some old, like Castle and Hawaii Five-0. So what do we think you should watch? Check it out below and find out!

I am both excited and sad about tonight’s Warehouse 13. I’m excited, because it’s going to be a great 2 hours, but I’m sad, because it’s the last 2 hours of the show for a while. Stupid season finales! lol This season has been leading up to what should be a fantastic episode. In fact, in the interview with star Eddie McClintock, he said one of the sound guys told him they were the best episodes of the series. Eddie also said they had really raised the stakes this year for the final 2 episodes, so I’m beyond excited to see them!

On tonight’s finale, “Emily Lake/Stand,” Pete and Myka attempt to follow the trail of a top-secret file that was stolen from the Warehouse, and their investigation leads them to a high school in Wyoming where H.G. Wells is working as a teacher named Emily Lake. They must race to stop Sykes from using his own cache of artifacts to destroy them and the Warehouse.

See the 2-hour finale tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Warehouse 13 @ Clicker.

Last week’s Hawaii Five-0 was filled with a lot of drama for our favorite crime fighting team. Kono faced Internal affairs, and she was kicked off the police force. Jenna left to return to Washington to follow a lead that her fiance was still alive, even though we know she has some kind of contact with Wo Fat. Also, the new Governor assigned a Homeland Security Agent, Lori Weston, to join Five-0, much to her and Garrett’s displeasure, although it’s almost like she’s a babysitter. 🙂 Despite all this drama, our favorite crime fighters still solved the kidnapping—and looked hot doing it!

On tonight’s episode, Steve investigates a Navy SEAL’s murder. Meanwhile, Kono worries when Chin Ho starts hanging out with some dirty cops.

To watch the drama unfold amongst the gorgeous cast, tune into CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

While last week’s Terra Nova premiere ratings might not have been as high as Fox had hoped, I thoroughly enjoyed it! I loved all the dino action, especially when the kids were trapped in the car and the Slashers were coming at them through the roof. It was like watching Jurassic Park, or some other monster movie. I’m also interested in this conflict between the colonists and the Sixers (reminds me a lot of the Others from Lost). I think this show has a lot of potential to provide both exciting action, as well as interesting stories/mythology.

In tonight’s episode, “Instinct,” Jim and Taylor must find a way to protect the colony from a Pterosaur attack, Elisabeth wonders if a past love played a role in her recruitment, and Syke tries to help Josh.

If you haven’t caught the first two episodes of 2 Broke Girls, your funny bone has a bone to pick with you. The pairing of a down on her luck rich girl forced to take a job and a sarcastic, downtrodden waitress makes for some of the funniest moments on TV. Max and Caroline double up for the best duo with on screen chemistry that I’ve seen in quite a while. The two not only have to work with each other, but they have to live with one another outside of work, as well. With no escape, these two play off one another in a unique and must see way that is unlike most of what’s on television today. If you like humor mixed with sarcasm and unlikely friendships, this show is the right fit for you!

Tonight, a battle erupts over a shirt when Max introduces Caroline to shopping at thrift stores. Also, a sarcastic street artist (guest star Nick Zano, Melrose Place, Cougar Town, and who Jenny has loved since his role of Vince on What I Like About You) flirts with Max.

Tune in at 8:30/7:30c to ABC for an all new episode! Learn where to find episodes online of 2 Broke Girls @ Clicker.

Castle has been been great so far this season. There are so many things I am worried about—how will Castle react when he learns Beckett was keeping her knowledge of the events after the shooting a secret from him, and maybe more importantly, how will Beckett react when she learns the huge secret Castle is keeping from her, about her mother’s case and his part in keeping it a secret from her?! Last week’s episode with the killer super hero gave us some great moments and lines, such as “Our killer’s a super hero!” I love this show so much and eagerly await every episode. From the previews, tonight will certainly not let me down case-wise. Hopefully we’ll get some great Castle/Beckett moments, too!

On tonight’s episode, “Head Case,” Castle and Beckett are called to investigate a murder scene that appears to lack the body of the victim altogether, but they soon end up questioning an expert in cryogenic freezing techniques before being led to other corpses.

See the new episode tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

Melissa McCarthy is a very talented actress who is not only beautiful, but has perfect comedic timing. I have adored her since her days on Gilmore Girls, and was overjoyed when she won her Emmy this year for Mike & Molly. I just watched Bridesmaids the other night, and now I’m even more excited for an all new episode of Mike & Molly. This comedy defies stereotypes by making the chubby girl the leading lady, and McCarthy owns it. I love the way everything they write is so down to Earth and still manages to be hysterical.

On tonight’s all new episode, Mike’s mom, Peggy, is in for a big surprise when she celebrates her boyfriend, Dennis’ birthday.

If you have yet to join the hilarity, tune in to CBS at 10/9c to see what you’ve been missing. Learn where to find episodes online of Mike & Molly @ Clicker.

Last week, How I Met Your Mother showed that it can still be brilliant. I loved the way they blended the two stories of Ted’s reuniting with Victoria and Barney’s bet with Lily. Barney is by far my favorite character on the show, and it was so believable that he might have secretly taken 6 months to learn how to be a Hibachi chef just to win a bet. It will be neat to see how this Ducky Tie comes back up throughout the season. The one thing they alluded to last week that I hope is not explored is whether Ted still has feelings for Robin—Barney and Robin belong together and Ted needs to meet his future wife!

In tonight’s episode, “The Stinson Missile Crisis,” Robin attends court-mandated therapy sessions after assaulting a woman who was hoping to ruin Barney’s relationship, and Ted becomes overly involved in Lily’s pregnancy.

Sleeze, sex appeal, seduction, and scandal—all appropriate words that would most definitely describe the show The Playboy Club. In the second episode, we had the search for a Playboy magazine cover girl and the search for Bruno Bianchi still in effect, while Nick tried to work out his candidacy. Bunny Alice tried to pretend to be the perfect housewife, and Bunny Janie revealed that she was secretly married. That’s just a small look at all of the drama! You never know who is going to enter the Playboy Club, or what is going to happen. There is never a dull moment when it comes to this sultry new show!

On tonight’s new episode, Carol-Lynne and Billy hire a brand new bunny, who ends up having quite the hidden agenda. Nick’s campaign manager sets him up with a wealthy socialite (guest star Cassidy Freeman). Maureen tries to keep herself safe by getting closer to John Bianchi.

Tune in at 10/9c to NBC for all of the intrigue! Learn where to find episodes online of The Playboy Club @ Clicker.

I went into last week’s series premiere of Hart of Dixie with my fingers crossed and extremely hopeful I’d like it, because I love Rachel Bilson, but honestly, I wasn’t sure I would like it. I’m not a fan of most shows on The CW, so I figured this might be another case of that. Fortunately, I was wrong. I absolutely loved it. Bilson is simply adorable as Dr. Zoe Hart. Zoe was kind of bratty and stuck up at the beginning, but we learned later in the episode that her mother is the uber-snob and her father basically ignores her—and then we learned at the end why: he wasn’t really her father. The older doctor who came to her med school graduation and offered her a job, and then continued to offer her one over the years, eventually leading her to Bluebell, was actually her dad. Unfortunately, he died mere months before Zoe arrived in Bluebell, so she only got to meet him that one time. Zoe had originally planned to leave Bluebell, but finding out about her father and about her mother’s deception was enough to make her decide to stay—at least for now. Besides Bilson, the cast was great. Lemon was the perfect “sweet on the outside, sour on the inside” foil for Zoe, George is sexy, but engaged to Lemon, and the mayor and Zoe’s generator-sharing neighbor were interesting, as well. It’ll be a lot of fun to see how this show grows.

On tonight’s episode, “Parades and Pariahs,” Zoe’s hopes of moving to Bluebell are dashed when she crashes the float during Founder’s Day Parade. George tells Zoe she must bring in more business tot he medical practice, or Dr. Breeland could buy out her half of the business.

    I don’t know why, but it still makes me smile whenever I see comments like “our favorite crime fighters still solved the kidnapping—and looked hot doing it!” 🙂

    I plan on watching all of this tonight (except H50, which I already dropped). Though tonight may be my final viewings of The Playboy Club and 2 Broke Girls. I have a little more hope for the latter since I have enjoyed a lot of Kat Dennings’ film work.
    I think the only reason I still watch Mike & Molly is because of Melissa McCarthy and her TV family. Other than them, I really don’t find the show all that funny/charming. (Didn’t think MM’s SNL episode this week was all that strong either–most of the skits had her looking so homely.)

    I have not gotten into The Playboy Club, and I really wanted to because Jenna Dewan and Eddie Cibrian.

    2 Broke Girls is amusing and makes me laugh so I’ll keep watching.

    I thought that most of the skits on SNL were mediocre except the one in the office, I was laughing at that one a lot. It’s true that they made her look homely in a lot of them, but she didn’t look ugly. In fact I think it shows her confidence to allow them to make her look that way.

    As we all know I love H50, and it’s not just for Alex O’Loughlin although that plays a big part 🙂
