If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/10/11

Welcome to the first work day of the new week. Did you have a good weekend? Mine was long, and I’m actually looking forward to today, because Monday night TV is always great. What do we think you should be watching? Read on to find out!

Castle has been amping up the flirting since the premiere, getting back to some of the best of the chemistry between Castle & Beckett, while still making the case of the week fun. You know it’s got to all come crashing down soon, though, when they learn of each other’s deceit. Tonight’s episode promises to be a hard one for the team, so hopefully we’ll get some good scenes between all the cast, not just Castle and Beckett.

On tonight’s episode, “Kick the Ballistics,” while investigating the mysterious shooting death of a young woman, Castle and Beckett face a cop’s worst nightmare when they discover that the gun used in the killing is Det. Ryan’s old service weapon—the one that was stolen by the serial killer, 3XK. Now, with the clock ticking, the team must work to solve the murder, track down 3XK and retrieve Ryan’s gun before the killer strikes again.

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

I was tentative about falling in love with another CW drama, because every time I do, it goes and gets cancelled. Unfortunately, I couldn’t resist Hart of Dixie, and I fell head over heels in love with it after the first episode. It’s hilarious, heart warming, and I think it’s going to be around for a long time to come. How funny was last week’s episode, when Zoe crashed the float to help her patient? So adorable, so promising, and so worth your time!

On tonight’s episode, “Gumbo and Glory,” Zoe enters a gumbo contest in yet another attempt to prove she can fit in as a Bluebell resident. Lavon has a crush on Zoe and Brick’s new receptionist, and the news sours Lemon. Zoe and Brick must look past their differences to save someone’s life.

To fall in love with Zoe like I have, tune in to The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hart of Dixie @ Clicker.

It was great to see that the Terra Nova pilot wasn’t just a fluke as last week’s episode was also really entertaining and exciting. There was a great, action-packed story with the swarm of Pterosaurs attacking Terra Nova. They also kicked up the relationship drama a bit by revealing that one of Elisabeth’s ex-flames from college is also living on Terra Nova and that he played a role in getting her there (probably hoping to rekindle their relationship, thinking that Jim would be out of the picture). It will be interesting to see if this becomes a full-fledged love triangle. Speaking of love triangles, you know that now that Josh and Skye are getting a little more serious, it is only a matter of time before his girlfriend from the future suddenly shows up through the gate!

On tonight’s episode, “What Remains,” while investigating radio silence at a nearby outpost, Elisabeth, Jim, Malcolm, and Taylor discover an outbreak of a mysterious and fatal virus.

Check it out tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Terra Nova @ Clicker.

Need a major dose of laughs to cheer you up from a long Monday work day? Then you need to not look any further than the brand new episode of 2 Broke Girls. This hilarious show about two very different girls forced to work together in a diner who eventually become friends is one of the best of the new Fall TV shows. Interestingly enough, one of the writers on the show is Whitney Cummings, who is starring in her own new Fall TV show, which is named Whitney after her. Unfortunately for Whitney, the writing isn’t as sharp with it as it is on 2 Broke Girls. Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs bring the chemistry and know how to translate the writing into pure laughs. Cure those Monday blues and sink into your couch for an all new episode tonight!

Tonight, Max gets a revealing glimpse of Caroline’s formerly enjoyed life of luxury when she agrees to break into the townhouse she used to live in, on the mission of retrieving her much-needed night guard.

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

I love Mike & Molly, because the cast has fantastic chemistry together and the comedy is spot on. Molly’s mother & sister are a riot (like how hysterical was Victoria soliciting Mike’s mom business of putting make up on Dennis after he died?!). Speaking of Dennis, did ANYONE see that coming?! I had no idea he was going to die—that’s not something you see generally on a comedy—so it shocked me completely. I felt bad that he died before Peggy could put out. *laugh* Still, it was the catalyst for Mike moving in with Molly, which was great.

On tonight’s episode, “Mike in the House,” when Mike moves in with Molly and her family, he finds that he must attempt to adjust from his life of living by himself in a bachelor pad to a house full of women.

Hawaii Five-0 is pulling out all the stops to bring us a very strong second season. I have to admit, I was really worried when Lori Weston (Lauren German) joined Five-0, but I am loving the banter between her and Danny. The storyline with Kono joining up with the bad guys is not pleasing me, though. I really like her and hope she gets herself back on the right track.

On tonight’s episode, “Mea Makamae,” Five-0 heads out into the beautiful waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands in order to try and investigate the mysterious murder of a deep-sea diver who was well-known for discovering shipwrecks beneath the ocean’s surface.

I’m looking forward to another new episode of How I Met Your Mother tonight. I have mixed feelings about last week’s episode. There was some fun stuff with Ted always being the third wheel to Lily & Marshall (and the photos at the end of the episode were great!). However, we also got yet another story of Robin pining over Barney as she helped him cover up his infidelities while Nora was away. I think they’ve kind of painted themselves into a corner with the Robin & Barney relationship. While I really want to see those two together, doing so would eliminate the hilarious bachelor playboy Barney we’ve all come to love. It would be great to have them get together at the end of the series, but they can’t really stretch out these unrequited love stories until then. That would be like stretching out the announcement about who the mother is…oh, wait.. 😉

On tonight’s episode, “Field Trip,” Marshall decides to step in after seeing his boss’s approach to settling with a million dollar company, and Ted’s class trip isn’t what he envisioned.

With just one episode before the midseason finale, things are getting hotter than ever on The Lying Game. Teens and tweens alike have become really taken with this summer breakout hit show. It’s easy to see why, with all of the drama, secrets, and deception that goes down on a weekly basis. It kind of gets hard to keep track of who knows what secret or who is harboring what secret, but that’s what makes this show so irresistible. You never know what’s going to happen, and you’re always left with a cliffhanger that leaves you wanting more. Don’t miss a juicy moment of the show that’s become another must see program from ABC Family!

Tonight, secrets abound within the Mercer household, and Emma has had about enough of it. When she overhears an argument between Ted and Kristen, Emma thinks that she finally can put a stop to all of the lies and get some real answers out of Sutton’s mom. But does Emma really think that she could pry the truth out of a secret that has been hidden for almost seventeen years? Or will the secret that Kristen has been hiding all of this time turn out to be not the biggest secret that’s lurking around the Mercer house? Meanwhile, Sutton gets a glimpse into what Emma’s life has been like when she is forced to pretend to be her sister while in Las Vegas.

Tune in at 8/7c to ABC Family for all of the drama! Learn where to find episodes online of The Lying Game @ Clicker.
