If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/22/11

First, I want to pay a special shout out to my little brother, who is celebrating a birthday today. Happy Birthday, bubba! Now on to the good stuff… Did anyone watch Castle last night? It was truly a brilliant episode, and if you missed it, I really do feel sorry for you! There’s some great stuff on tonight, too, so Megan & I are here to share with you what we think you should watch. 🙂

Last week’s Covert Affairs featured two relationships center stage: Annie and Eyal (Oded Fehr) had their normal flight/flirt time whenever they are together, culminating in Annie showing up at the bar at the end of the episode, only to be disappointed when Eyal didn’t show (surprise… *rolls eyes* Ok, so as much as I love Oded Fehr, I’m not a fan of Eyal’s…); meanwhile, Auggie learned Parker, the woman he’s been seeing (the sister of his deceased Army buddy), is supposed to leave in a few months to go to Eritrea for her Peace Corp assignment. He really started worrying, because it’s a very dangerous place—so much so that he went to Joan to try and convince her to change Parker’s assignment. I thought that was a huge no-no, and then I was relieved at the end of the episode, when instead of bringing Joan back the form she needed, he brought her a “close and continuing relationship” form instead, saying he had four months and he was going to make them count. Even though I’m a firm Annie/Auggie shipper, I have to admit I loved Auggie’s happiness after that statement!

On tonight’s episode, “Horse to Water,” after an asset is killed in Russia, the CIA begins to suspect that an imprisoned CIA analyst is receiving assistance from his daughter, so Annie is tasked with following the woman and studying her actions.

The X Factor has been heating up on a weekly basis, and last week’s results show was as hot as it gets. The bottom two came down to Stacy and Astro, and Astro had a bit of a breakdown. He didn’t want to rap for people who put him the bottom 2. I personally think that Astro was acting out of fear and not just out of ego. I also think that people need to give him a break—he’s still very young. All that aside, he’s made an apology, and the show must go on!

On tonight’s episode, the top 9 battle it out to see who will survive this week’s double elimination.

Last week was the conclusion to the two part episode of NCIS. Gibbs & Ziva went overseas to Afghanistan to try and rescue the captured Marine and the two children she had run with when the school was attacked. Circumstances forced Gibbs to relieve some time as a young Marine when he met a young woman—also a Marine—who ended up dying right after leaving for another post. It obviously affected him greatly, and I didn’t figure out until we learned of her death how it tied in to the current case. Regardless, it was a good episode. I only hope there is more of Abby tonight, because I’ve been missing her lately!

On tonight’s episode, “Sins of the Father,” after Anthony DiNozzo, Sr. is found in a car with a dead body in the trunk and no memory of the previous night, the NCIS team must figure out if he is capable of murder. Meanwhile, Tony is sidelined for this case and must go against orders to try and prove his father’s innocence. Robert Wagner returns as Tony’s father.

Kyle’s Choice

Last week’s extended episode of Sons of Anarchy was literally explosive, with a huge war-like battle between the club/cartel and the Lobos. Meanwhile, Jax saw what Clay had done to his mother and said he couldn’t let it slide. A much cleaner, drug-free Wendy returned, wanting to play a role in Abel’s life, causing Tara to get upset and re-injure her hand. Juice told Chibs the truth about his father when he confronted him about his suicide attempt. Otto made a deal with the feds to turn on the Sons, and Uncer told Opie the truth about his father’s death at the hands of Clay. We’ve still got three exciting episodes to go this season. It feels like they are lining up all of these assassins to go kill Clay—Gemma, Jax, Opie, who’s next?! I half-expect that the season finale will end with Clay at the end of some sort of gunshot or explosion, without us finding out if he’s dead and/or who’s responsible until next season.

In tonight’s episode, “Burnt and Purged Away,” SAMCRO must negotiate with the Irish Kings to secure the club’s future.

Week after week, NCIS: LA manages to grab my attention within the first scene. This cast has amazing chemistry, and it doesn’t hurt that they are all amazingly attractive. I love the bromance between Sam and Callen, but my favorite part is Hetty. She is a firecracker. On last week’s episode, we saw what Sam has been up to with his undercover work. We also see Sam’s home life, where he has a child and a wife. Did you know about this?

On tonight’s episode, “The Debt,” a botched assignment forces Hetty to fire Deeks and send him back to the LAPD. Meanwhile, an awkward goodbye between Kensi and Deeks leaves her with unexpected emotions for her old partner.

To see how those unexpected emotions play out, tune in to CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS: LA @ Clicker.

I know Last Man Standing may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I quite enjoy it. I like Tim Allen more each episode. His daughters are quite funny. I love Christoph Sanders as Kyle (I loved him more as smart Ned on Ghost Whisperer), and Hector Elizondo is always fantastic. But Nancy Travis almost always steals the show. Last week, the family dealt with a break-in in the neighborhood, prompting Vanessa to organize a new neighborhood watch program and Mike to install a new alarm and ready the “safe room” in the basement. It was fun, but I think this week looks even better.

On tonight’s episode, “House Rules,” after an innocent date with Kristin, Kyle accidentally falls asleep in her bedroom. When Mike discovers this, his instinct is to take action. He establishes a new and more hard-lined set of house rules that end up causing more friction than harmony between him and his three daughters.

Flashpoint manages to pull me in every week. It’s not just the story arcs, but it also doesn’t hurt that the cast is super hot. The new guy, Raf, is working hard, and it’s like he’s always been there. Reasons aside, if you havnen’t given Flashpoint a chance, you’re robbing yourself of a brilliant escape. Last week’s episode was kind of heartbreaking, with the shooting at Donna’s wedding. Luckily, it ended better than it could have, and Donna and her new husband were physically fine. She was going to have a long road getting over the fact that her former partner—a man she respected and thought of as a friend for a long time—had betrayed her.

On tonight’s episode, “A Call to Arms,” Team One must figure out how to get a Chinatown gang to release a local shop owner, then they also have to figure out how to get the one who shot the owner’s daughter free, as well.

To see if they can save everyone in time, tune in to ION at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.
