If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/18/11

Raise your glass with me and toast to surviving another week of life in general. Cheers to Friday! While I’m happy for the weekend, I am also a little sad that next week is American Thanksgiving, because it marks the start of a slow TV period. I realize that we’ll all be busy with holiday activities, but I will miss the daily bustle of my full television schedule. That said, it’s not doom and gloom yet, because tonight, there are more than enough fabulous shows to help you kick back and chillax. Let’s see what you should be watching.

If there was a way I could, I would write you all a prescription for television shows you must watch, starting with the fantastic Blue Bloods. I could go on, and on, and on with all the reasons you should be watching (ie. attractive cast, gripping storylines, and awesome writers). Instead, I’ll just tell you to trust me; I’m a professional. 😉

Last week’s episode was intense, with Danny’s partner, Jackie, going undercover as a call girl to catch a serial killer. I was shocked when it turned out to be one of the former victim’s moms, who felt she was helping the girls find peace. Sick, twisted, and riveting TV.

On tonight’s all new episode, “Thanksgiving,” a young woman commits suicide, but Danny and Jackie suspect it was forced. Meanwhile, Frank and Mayor Poole butt heads over a threat to the city, and Henry suffers a heart attack—making the Reagans face the sad possibility of losing their patriarch.

To see if the Reagans can hold it together, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Blue Bloods @ Clicker.

I have to admit, I was totally not digging Morgan as the Intersect. I was worried it would continue like that through the entire season, until I read an interview with Joshua Gomez about his character. He promised it was not going to be a season-long arc, and sure enough, at the end of the last episode, everyone figured out that the Intersect had been tampered with and was screwing with Morgan’s brain. I also love having Ellie & Awesome so involved last ep! Meanwhile, Chuck and Sarah are adorable as a married couple, and Chuck is doing very well as a spy—even without the help of the super computer in his head. I’m excited to see how things are going to go with the f’ed up Intersect…

On tonight’s episode, Chuck and Sarah go undercover at a Buy More convention to hunt down an assassin whose mission is to take down the new Intersect. Meanwhile, Morgan must deal with the consequences of having the Intersect. At the Buy More, Jeff begins to show a very different side of himself. David Koechner & Catherine Dent (The Shield) guest star.

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

I can’t believe tonight is already the Fall finale of Fringe; it seems like the season just started, and after tonight, it will be off until mid-January! Last week was a great, primarily standalone episode. However, we finally saw Walter begin to open up to Peter, after referring to him as “The Subject” for most of the episode. You could see a bit of the proud dad in his face when Peter came up with the idea for a mobile Faraday cage. Meanwhile, Peter discovered that his return seems to have activated the recent temporal events. Is Peter’s reality gone forever, or will memories and events slowly bleed through? What about the new race of shape-shifters—have they already infiltrated Massive Dynamic or the Fringe division and we just don’t know it yet? I have a feeling tonight’s episode is just going to leave me with more questions and a really long wait for answers!

In tonight’s episode, “Wallflower,” the Fringe team find that the mysterious death of a man—and his corpse turning white—is not unprecedented and may be linked to an unknown genetic disorder. Meanwhile, Olivia is plagued by migraines.

Last week’s Nikita was great, but kind of heartbreaking at the same time. Michael spent more time with his son, he and Nikita figured out Cassandra was really an undercover agent with MI6, and Alex is now even deeper into her play to get revenge for her father’s death and take back over his company. The fight scenes with Michael and everyone were fantastic, as always, and I have to say the Cassandra storyline totally shocked me. But the saddest part of the episode was the end, when Nikita told Michael to stay until he figured out if he’d be able to walk away from his son. Then she left, because she knew if she stayed, he wouldn’t be able to make the decision without considering her. Gah.

On tonight’s episode, “Fair Trade,” Nikita steals funds from Oversight, forcing them to host an emergency meeting. Nikita and Birkoff figure out how to spy on the meeting so Nikita can identify the other members of Oversight, but things go awry and Sean captures Birkoff. Amanda demands to know where Nikita is hiding but Birkoff refuses to give up his friend, so she tortures him. Meanwhile, Alex sets her plan in motion to reclaim her father’s empire. With a price on her head, Alex realizes the easiest way to get into Russia undetected is the same way she was smuggled out—through the illegal sex ring.

See the exciting new episode tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Nikita @ Clicker.

Fridays never looked so…Grimm! This new show has captivated viewers with modern spins on classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Portland Homicide Detective, Nick Burkhardt, struggles to keep his newly discovered ability from both his partner and his fiancee. Thank goodness he has Eddie Monroe, a reformed Grimm creature, for backup! Monroe provides a lot of funny along with the guidance. Last week dealt with killer bees…not the normal killer bees we humans have to deal with in real life, but the Grimm kind. We learned that Nick’s boss is more involved with the Grimm-world than we thought, and Nick made the decision to save Adalind, another Grimm creature—one who tried to kill Nick’s aunt and who will most likely try and kill Nick himself at some point in the future. Will that decision come back to haunt him later? I’d bet so! Have a frightening Friday night fix with Grimm!

Tonight, on “Lonelyhearts,” Nick investigates a series of deaths and disappearances, and a stranger shows up to avenge a friend who has died at the hands of a Grimm.

Watch an all new episode at 9/8c on NBC! Learn where to find episodes online of Grimm @ Clicker.

This season of CSI: NY has been great so far. First, we had the whole 9/11 remembrance episode, then the mess with Danny and the shooting, and now, Jo’s past is back—in the form of a serial rapist who has been able to escape charges as of yet. Last week was kind of a sad episode, because it dealt with a form of bullying. Teenagers can be so unbelievably cruel, and to watch that when I have a nearly fourteen-year-old myself was incredibly tough. It really was heartbreaking. This week looks like it’s going to be as exciting as last week was sad, so I can’t wait!

On tonight’s episode, “Crossroads,” as the CSIs investigate the assassination of a judge, Jo comes face-to-face with a criminal from her past. Jason Wiles (Third Watch) returns as rape suspect John Curtis. Jeffrey Nordling (Once and Again, Desperate Housewives) guest stars as Senator Kirk Matthews, who blames Jo for Curtis’ previous acquittal. Beau Garrett returns as rape victim Ali Rand.
