If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/16/11

It’s only 8 days until Christmas Eve, and I have not finished my shopping. In fact, I am nowhere near close. In case anyone needs ideas of what I would like for Christmas, I’ll take: Alex O’Loughlin, Shemar Moore, Wentworth Miller, Mark Salling, Barrett Foa, all gift wrapped with bows, just for me. Oh, and a new coffee maker, because mine is on the fritz… I need my caffeine fix โ€“ don’t judge me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now, while you all rush off to fulfill my male order shopping list, I’ll tell you what you should be watching tonight.

It’s no secret that I have been falling in love with Grimm, but if this is your first time coming to the site, then welcome, and news flash โ€“ I’m falling in love with Grimm. ๐Ÿ™‚ Now that the cat is out of the bag, let’s discuss why you should be watching this amazing show. Take one of your favorite fairytales โ€“ let’s use The Three Little Pigs, for example โ€“ and now twist it up, rough up the edges, and throw in an attractive cast. Okay? Good. Last week’s episode was just that โ€“ an upside down version of The Three Little Pigs, where the pigs got revenge on the wolves. It was genius. I loved every single dark moment of the episode, and I think you should be watching, as well.

On tonight’s all new episode, “Let Your Hair Down,” a murder investigation in the woods leads to the reopening of a missing person’s case. Also, Nick asks Monroe to make contact with a feral creature.

To see your favorite fairytales get modernized, tune in to NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grimm @ Clicker.

I have to admit that I’m a week behind on Chuck. It’s been a long couple of weeks, so unfortunately, some of my TV is not as up-to-date as I’d like. I know some of what happened last week, though, and I couldn’t be happier that Decker is gone. Woohoo! He was an evil, evil man. lol Of course, we can’t go without a new enemy, and we see the next problem for Chuck this week (not to mention the one for next week!). In addition, we have Morgan beginning to try and woo Alex back after dumping her in the biggest douche-y way โ€“ via text message. If you aren’t watching, check it out!

On tonight’s episode, โ€œChuck Versus the Curse,โ€ when a computer virus is found, Chuck and Sarah must race against the clock to stop it, and the only thing in their way is the callous spy, Robyn Cunnings. Ellie and Awesome’s date night turns dangerous, and Morgan must recover Chuck’s P.A.N.T.S. (LOL) Rebecca Romijn guest stars.

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

We are coming down to the final few weeks of the Sanctuary season. Last week, we saw the return of Kate Freelander, who warned Magnus about a Hollow Earth plot against an unknown above-ground target. Helen soon discovered that Bigfoot was a suspected sleeper cell agent behind the plot, and there was evidence of his participation. However, Magnus was convinced that an abnormal they had captive at the Sanctuary was just controlling The Big Guy’s mind. In a great twist at the end of the episode, we discovered that this was not actually the case. I continue to be impressed with the effects and look Sanctuary is able to achieve on a cable budget. I like this turn of events at the end of the episode, as it could really change the dynamics of everything at the Sanctuary. It was also great to see Kate on the show againโ€”I had forgotten just how much I missed this character until she returned after being gone for 2 months.

In tonight’s episode, “The Depths,” a quest to capture a legendary Abnormal in Bolivia leaves Will and Magnus injured and trapped in a cave-in, where they confront truths about themselves and their relationship. Meanwhile, Henry records video letters to a special someone while working on an invention.

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

    Megan, I had to look up who “Barrett Foa” was–name was not familiar.
    As for the coffee addiction, it seems like one of Walmart/KMart/Walgreens/CVS always has like a $5 coffee maker you could get in the meantime, instead of going all MacGyver with a funnel or creating a makeshift French Press. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kyle- Thank you for paying attention to my shopping list. Please ship all gifts priority post from the states ๐Ÿ™‚ lol of course I’m just kidding, unless you have somehow, legally obtained, any of the mentionied boys… then ship away. ๐Ÿ˜€ As for the coffee maker, the only place out of the list we have in Canada is Walmart, and the nearest one to me is a 20 min drive. I would rather take my chances with MacGyver methods than pack the kids up just to go buy a coffee maker. Besides I think it was very savvy of me to make my own brew system, but for the record since my funnel/coffee filter/tea pot adventure (Best cup of coffee ever! lol) I borrowed my sister’s extra coffee maker until Santa brings me a new one.
