If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/20/12

I started to say something about happy beginning of the work week, until I remembered that a lot of people have a long weekend and are off today because of President’s Day. If you’re working, I’m sorry. If you’re not, then yay! lol Some great stuff on tonight, so check out what we think you must watch!

Tonight is the second part of the Castle two-parter. I will be honest and say I haven’t watched part one yet. On special episodes like this, I almost always wait until both parts have aired before watching them. I did read some reviews, and most people enjoyed the episode last week (as if I had any doubts about it… lol). I even saw a few people wonder if this was kind of a backdoor pilot into a new CIA show starring Jennifer Beals. I haven’t heard any official word about that, so I have no idea if it’s true, but it would be kind of cool. That’s my favorite type of show, generally. I doubt that’s what’s going on, though. Anyway, if you watched last week, comment below and let me know if you enjoyed it and plan to watch tonight’s conclusion.

On tonight’s episode, “Linchpin,” in the explosive conclusion of a two-part story arc that began last week with “Pandora,” Castle & Beckett race to find the “Linchpin” in order to stop the first domino in a chain of events which will plunge the United States into war.

Don’t miss it tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to watch/DVR a big list of shows: the CBS comedies, Castle, Hawaii Five-0, The Voice, Alcatraz, Lost Girl, & Pawn Star$.

It’s definitely not a secret that I adore Alex O’Loughlin and Hawaii Five-0. Last week’s episode was full of complications for the team, but I really loved the beginning where McGarrett had to carry Lori because she hurt herself. I was sad that Lori resigned at the end of the episode, because I love the sexual tension between her and McGarrett. On the case front, the team manages to bring down a Russian executive who was not only a rapist, but a murderer, as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Kupale,” Five-0 investigates the murder a man dressed as a Hawaiian NoKoa warrior found in the jungle near the site of a historical war re-enactment. Apolo Ohno (Olympic Speed Skater & Dancing with the Stars champion) & Shane “The Flyin’ Hawaiian” Victorino (Philadelphia Phillies Outfielder) guest star.

Tune in tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching, Alcatraz, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, The Voice, Being Human, and Hart of Dixie.

So far, Smash has been, well, a smash for me. Last week were the callbacks, with Ivy and Karen competing for the role of Marilyn. While the producers saw benefits and faults with both girls, Ivy Lynn ultimately scored the title role. However, I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Karen Cartwright. If anything, last week’s analysis of both girls seemed to lend more proof that the role will eventually be split, with Ivy playing Marilyn and Karen playing Norma Jean.

I have seen a few bloggers warning that tonight’s episode of Smash will not win anyone over. However, I just hope that it’s not enough to deter folks from giving this great show a chance. If there’s one part of the show that I can find fault with, it’s this adoption storyline. It’s so unnecessaryand boring. This seems to be a trend in primetime shows this year, with Parenthood and Grey’s Anatomy also excessively dragging out similar plots. [Note from Jenny: I think I read that the adoption storyline isn’t revisited in this episode…just FYI.]

In tonight’s episode, “Enter Mr. DiMaggio,” casting begins for the Joe DiMaggio character, and the lead contender is hiding something. Meanwhile, Karen returns to her hometown to attend a baby shower, and Eileen’s ex-husband pollutes her pool of potential investors.

See it tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Smash @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching: How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, The Voice, House, Alcatraz, Hart of Dixie, Being Human, and Castle.

When we last left Pretty Little Liars, Caleb’s involvement in cracking “A’s” cell phone had Hanna worried from the get-go, and it led to his computer being confiscated by the police due to a bogus hacking charge. Aria finally learned what Holden had been up to during their weekly “dates.” He’s involved in martial arts that his parents don’t approve of, as he has a heart defect. Aria’s father Byron started to get suspicious about what Aria and Holden really were doing during their dates after a mysterious note from “A” is left on his car. Emily learned that Maya was still using marijuana, and that has seemingly jeopardized their relationship once again.

On tonight’s new episode, “Breaking the Code,” Aria, Emily, Spencer, and Hanna have been the target of “A”‘s cruel intentions and games, and it has left them all emotionally cut off from their families and friends. However, when a surprising new victim of “A” is revealed, the ladies’ tight-knit group may be adding a new member. But what is “A’s” motive for targeting someone who is outside of the Liars? Meanwhile, Spencer tries to run from her family troubles and ends up in Wren’s arms, just as Ezra’s new job opportunity could push him away from Aria.

Time is ticking down for the Liars and you won’t want to miss a minute, so tune in at 8/7c to ABC Family! Learn where to find episodes online of Pretty Little Liars @ Clicker.

Tonight, I will also be watching all new episodes of The Voice and Smash!
