If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/17/12

What a long week it’s been, and I couldn’t be happier for this weekend – especially because it’s a long weekend in Canada for Family Day. Has anyone else noticed how everyone has been getting sick lately? I’m ready for Spring and warm weather, aren’t you? Before we get there, let’s enjoy some more February sweeps with all new episodes tonight.

Blue Bloods, how I love thee, let me count the ways… Danny Reagan, Jamie Reagan. Yummy cast. 🙂 What? A girl has to have dreams, and what better kind than two police officer brothers that look like them? Fantastic! Last week’s episode, we watched a daughter who was convinced that God told her that her stepfather killed her mother. What do you know – she wasn’t completely crazy! He did kill her.

On tonight’s episode, “Parenthood,” a thief is shot and killed after robbing a family and beating them, which makes the Reagans ponder how far they would go to protect their loved ones. Meanwhile, Frank struggles with charges brought against a girl arrested at a rally.

To see how far the Reagan love would go to protect, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Blue Bloods @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Spartacus: Vengeance and Supernatural.

Last week on Nikita, Alex delivered the news to Nikita, Michael, and Birkhoff that Amanda was in complete control of Division now. Percy had Roan kill the partner of the cop Nikita was accused years ago of killing. He then got in touch with Nikita, asking for her help in overtaking Amanda and Division, and when she refused to work with him, he said he was going to take someone she cared about. That turned out to be Carla, who pulled Nikita off the street before she went to Division (much like Nikita did for Alex). We later found out that Carla was deeply involved with Division, even when she first met Nikita—that she had created the program. Not sure how I feel about that, even now. lol One of the best parts of everything lately are Percy and Amanda being at each other’s throats.

On tonight’s episode, “Origins,” Nikita and Michael try to help Carla (guest star Erica Gimpel) remember her past, which holds the key to taking down Division. Carla recounts the night Nikita was arrested, and Nikita is stunned at what she learns. Meanwhile, Alex shows up at a Zetrov press conference where Semak is speaking and announces that she’s Alexandra Udinov. Alex demands a trade—her mother for the empire.

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

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching Blue Bloods.

The new season of Spartacus: Vengeance is off to a great start, though it definitely has a different feeling than the past. Last week, Crixus was crushed when Agron reported that a dying guard told him Naevia was dead. However, it was revealed that Agron was lying for what he believed to be the greater good of the group, so that they would stop risking their lives to find Crixus’ girlfriend—and that Naevia was alive and working in the mines. Meanwhile, Ashur pressured Oenomaus to reveal Spartacus’ whereabouts and told him the truth about what happened to his wife. Oenomaus accidentally revealed that former slaves were trying to locate Naevia, and so Ashur headed to the mines to stop them. As the gang was rescuing Naevia, they were attacked by Ashur and his men, and at the end of the episode, we saw Ashur knock Crixus out, hitting him over the head with the butt of his sword.

In tonight’s episode, “Empty Hands,” while Spartacus attempts to lead survivors through the woods to safety, Crixus becomes separated from the group and finds himself at a place that dredges up painful memories. Elsewhere, Lucretia digs into Ilithyia’s past to seek favor with a high-ranking Roman.

See it tonight on Starz at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Spartacus: Vengeance @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching: Fringe and Portlandia, and DVRing A Gifted Man, Kitchen Nightmares, Nikita, and Supernatural for some future catch-up time.
