If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/24/12

This week so far has been great, and I’m looking forward to another wonderful night of television. Even though a lot of our favorite shows are off this week, there are still a few to keep us amused. Let’s see what you should be watching to keep this week going strong.

Megan’s Choice

Last week, Remodeled premiered and started the journey to change modeling agencies everywhere. I admire Paul Fisher’s goal to make the world of modeling a safer place. Can he do it? I’m not sure, actually, but I’m so glad he’s trying. It’s time the world started to nurture our young people, instead of giving them unhealthy, unattainable models to look at.

On tonight’s episode, “Modeling Agency or Modeling School?” Paul visits an agency in South Dakota and is outraged that the owner is running a modeling school for girls who have little chance of succeeding as models.

To see if Paul Fisher can indeed make a difference, tune in to The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Remodeled @ Clicker.

I watched two episodes of Flashpoint this past weekend to catch up, and oh man…my heart was pounding! The episode dealing with the young man who’d had some head trauma playing football was so damn sad. You couldn’t help but feel bad for the guy, his mother, and even the guy’s old friend, who was really the one who had killed the guy a few years before. No one won in that one, really. And then last week’s episode set in the bio-lab had me seriously on the edge of my seat the whole time. I kept emailing Megan: “OMG, Jules! She’s gonna be ok, right?” On and on…I wanted to cry! lol And then, of course, breathed a little bit easier when we figured out it had partially been a set up, but then she was basically on death’s door, and Sam said I love you. Gah. He’s yummy. 😉 Spy Daddy was much less of a jerk this episode, and I’m glad he was going to recommend that Jules and Sam be allowed to stay on Team One. What will Parker do? I mean, he HAS to decide he’s going to stay with the team and keep being in charge, right? I can’t see it any other way. I’m sure it will work out, but man, I’m excited to see it!

On tonight’s season finale, “Slow Burn,” a murder attempt on an injured firefighter draws Team One into the world of serial arsonists, and Sgt. Parker has to make a decision whether or not to stay with the SRU.

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

Last week in the season four premiere of Southland, Cooper returned to active duty after rehab and back surgery. He was paired up with new partner Jessica Tang (guest star Lucy Liu), who comes with some baggage of her own. Lydia had a new partner, as well, named Ruben Robinson (guest star Dorian Missick), and the two were plagued by a former CI of Lydia’s. Ben, Sammy, and Dewey had to chase down an armed man that tormented an elementary school.

Tonight, on “Underwater,” Tang and Cooper are attacked in the street, and Lydia and Ruben have to investigate a convenience store murder. Ben and Sammy ride with another officer, and Joel Rucker takes over as the new captain.

Last week, White Collar made its explosive mid-season return. Matthew Keller had kidnapped Elizabeth and demanded the u-boat treasure in exchange for her release. While Peter and Neal worked to steal back the treasure from a guarded warehouse, the FBI searched for Elizabeth. Meanwhile, Elizabeth proved to be quite resourceful, leaving clues in her ransom call and using her diamond ring to smash though a window and escape. In the end, Keller was captured and the treasure was returned. Just as Neal planned to confess his involvement, Keller took full responsibility for the stolen treasure in order to look like a hero to the Russian Mob. Neal is told he will get a probation hearing to discuss the commuting of his sentence.

I really liked the action of this mid-season premiere. It was great to see Peter go undercover (of sorts) and for Elizabeth to get into the action herself. I’m sure the commuting of Neal’s sentence will line up with the season finale. However, I’m not sure where the show would go from there. Has Neal really changed? Would he work as a consultant to the FBI once he is free? Is everything between Peter and Neal really forgiven? If I were Peter, I’m not sure that I would really trust Neal after discovering his involvement in the u-boat treasure theft.

In tonight’s episode, “Upper West Side Story,” Neal poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious prep school to help Peter track down missing scholarship money.

This season of Justified was set three weeks after season two ended. Raylan is recovering from his shooting, as is Ava. Boyd is upset because he didn’t get to kill Dickie for shooting Ava, and he clock Raylan when they have a sit down in the office and Raylan basically tells him he wouldn’t send a man to his death like that. The characters are still dealing with Mags’ death, as well, and that…void, for lack of a better word, has been filled by Neal McDonough’s Robert Quarles, a Detroit-based mobster, set to take over in Kentucky. At the end of the episode, we learn that Boyd set himself up to get arrested, because he is about to confront Dickie and Dewey—and there is hell to pay. It is already shaping up to be another great season. Let’s hope that continues!

On tonight’s episode, “Cut Ties,” the murder of a fellow Marshal throws Raylan together with a woman from his past. Boyd engineers a showdown with Dickie Bennett. Carla Gugino (Californication, Entourage, Threshold, Karen Sisco) guest stars.

When we last left off on Dance Moms, the ladies headed to Ohio to compete in a tournament and against their nemesis, Cathy and the Candy Apples. The two groups went toe to toe, and Abby Lee Miller Dance Company came out on top, much to the chagrin of Cathy, of course. This ticked off Cathy, who demanded to see the scores as she felt her girls edged out Abby’s completely. After all of that, one of Cathy’s dancers had her age called into question and eventually, it turned out that she was disqualified for dancing in the wrong age group. Trying to turn the tables, Cathy pointed fingers at Brooke on Abby’s squad but was shot down when Brooke’s birth certificate was provided. Never a dull moment. These ladies of dance know how to bring the drama!

On tonight’s episode, “Brooke’s Turning Point,” Kelly may be trying to pull a fast one over on Abby by pushing Brooke into cheerleading. Brooke always complains she doesn’t have time for her friends and that she would rather be cheerleading. Maybe now is Kelly’s chance to get Brooke away from Abby’s clutches?
