If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/12/11

It’s been a VERY trying few days. I basically lost my job, so things here are really tense while we figure out what we’re going to do. TV is one of my only bright spots, and I can only hope that doesn’t disappear! There’s not a lot on this week, but what we have is yours, so read on!

I absolutely adore Rizzoli & Isles. There are some great partnerships on TV: Booth and Bones, Castle and Beckett, Franklin and Bash, Shawn and Gus. Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles have that same chemistry. They snipe at each other (well, mostly, it’s Jane that does the sniping… lol), but they are the best of friends. Even when something comes between them—like last week, when Maura had to keep from Jane the fact that her brother Tommy was the main suspect in a bank robbery turned murder—they still make their way back to their friendship.

On tonight’s episode, “Seventeen Ain’t So Sweet,” Jane attends her high school reunion and brings Maura along for the ride, but the fun is cut short when one of her old classmates turns up dead on the football field. Jane must focus on the past when she realizes everyone in her class is a potential suspect. Meanwhile, Korsak gets a visit from ex-wife Melody Patterson (guest star Lolita Davidovich), who hopes he’ll invest in her new business. Chris Vance (All Saints, Prison Break, Transporter) returns as Sgt. Major Charles “Casey” Jones, an old flame of Jane’s, and Matthew Del Negro (United States of Tara) guest-stars as Angela’s car mechanic, Giovanni, who once had eyes for Maura.

It wouldn’t be a Monday night in my house without watching Hawaii Five-0. Unfortunately, this is the last new episode until the new year, but I’m sure it’s going to be a great episode. Last week, we watched McGarrett and the Five-0 team save a bus load of school kids. Then, there was a strange moment with Joe White (Terry O’Quinn) talking on the phone, telling someone that McGarrett was getting to close to finding them. I was really confused, and I was annoyed, because the last thing we need is another twist. Mostly because I hate not knowing what’s going on. 🙂

On tonight’s fall finale, “Alaheo Pau’ole,” on the eve of Chin Ho’s wedding to Malia, the Five-0’s investigation into a man left for dead in an abandoned WWII bunker crosses paths with Captain Fryer’s case of a Jane Doe.

To see if we find out any answers to all the unanswered questions, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

Tonight is the penultimate Terra Nova of the season. In the last episode, in a surprise twist, we finally learned that the Sixer mole is Skye. The Sixers had agreed to help her dying mom in exchange for medicine and information. Meanwhile, we saw Taylor and Mira in a typical action or thriller movie situation—the two enemies were forced to work together to fight a common enemy; iin this case, that was a dinosaur attack. Of course, they are still enemies, but bond a bit and achieve a mutual understanding and respect for one another.

As long as we keep getting a weekly dinosaur attack, I’ll keep watching this show. 🙂 I don’t know how well the series is doing in the ratings, but I really hope they properly wrap up the storylines over these final two weeks, in case there isn’t a second season.

In tonight’s episode, “Within,” Lucas races to complete his mystery device before the 11th Pilgrimage arrives. Taylor and Jim confront Terra Nova’s “Sixer” mole, and Skye finds a familiar face as the colony prepares for war.

Watch the excitement tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Terra Nova @ Clicker.

At the beginning of the season, I was skeptical as to whether or not CBS could pull out another hilarious comedy, but they have done it with 2 Broke Girls. Make no mistake, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you enjoy a giggle at bitchy sarcasm or slightly offside humour, you’ll love it. 😉 I really enjoy the witty banter between Max and Caroline, because it reminds me of my sister and me together. The other thing I’m holding out for is the return of Johnny (Nick Zano), because he’s adorable and his chemistry with Max is off the charts. Last week’s episode was amusing, but also touching, as the girls tried to find a home for their horse, Chestnut.

Tonight’s fall finale, “And the Pop-Up Sale,” is centered around Caroline realizing her surname isn’t an asset to her anymore. Max’s stove breaks, and Caroline tries to return some expensive rings to Barney’s department store, but finds she isn’t as welcome at her home away from home anymore.

To see how Caroline handles realizing her demotion in status is very real, tune in to CBS at the special time of 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of 2 Broke Girls @ Clicker.

Jenny’s Choice #2

Can I just say how much I love that Carl finally has a girlfriend he’s becoming serious with on Mike & Molly? I hope Holly Robinson Peete comes back more as Christina! I would love to see the four of them hang out more often! Last episode, we saw Molly get overwhelmed with wedding plans, and when Mike acted like it was no big deal and he thought she was handling it all wrong, Molly gladly gave him the job—only to have him turn around and be just as overwhelmed as she had been. They were able to come together at the end, but it was fun seeing Mike fall apart!

On tonight’s episode, “Christmas Break,” when Molly gets disappointing news at work, she is thrown into a funk that threatens to ruin Christmas.

Check it out tonight on CBS at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Mike & Molly @ Clicker.

On the last episode of The Closer, Brenda Lee had to deal with a drunk Santa Clause and more cases were being brought against her. She also learned that her husband Fritz had previously paid for her lawyer’s legal services, not the force. That was another bombshell that had been dropped on her after previously learning that Captain Raydor was going to retire. With the rule of bad things happening in threes and tonight’s episode involving Brenda’s parents, it may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

On tonight’s episode, a man is murdered while he’s under FBI surveillance. Also, Brenda’s parents come for a visit with very surprising news that keeps Brenda’s mind from focusing on her case.

Tune in at 9/8c to TNT for an all new episode! Learn where to find episodes online of The Closer @ Clicker.

It’s the return of Fear Factor, after a few years’ break. I really enjoy this show, because there is something about watching people facing their fears and freaking out that is amusing. Personally, you would never catch me eating bugs, jumping out of a plane, or being submerged underwater, but let me watch someone else do crazy things, and I’m all for it. 🙂

In the first episode, “Scorpion Tales,” the reality series returns with a series of dares. In one, airlifted contestants must hop onto the back of a truck that is heading toward an explosive collision with a barrier. They must also eat five scorpions.

In the second hour, “Broken Hearts and Blood Baths,” teams of business executives take on extreme dares, including escaping from a submerged vehicle and dropping into a speeding boat from a helicopter.

To see the nutty things people will do to win money, tune in to NBC starting at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Fear Factor @ Clicker.
