If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/29/12

We have arrived at the middle of the week, and so far, it’s going all right. Monday was the worst, with the Daytona 500 messing with my television viewing. Poor Kyle had an earful of how aggrivated I was that not only was the race on a Monday, but my husband, who insists on watching it, was screwing up my DVR recordings. I’m better now—only slightly bitter. 😀
Let’s see what we can entertain ourselves with tonight, shall we?

There are times when I wonder if Suburgatory is going to get old and unfunny for me… It hasn’t, and I don’t think it’s going to. I love the relationship that Tessa and George have—it’s so dysfunctionally perfect. Then again, given how crazy these suburban moms are, there is a whole lot of dysfunctional going on. Last week’s episode was a bit crazy—but in a good way. We had Noah winning back his wife on a white horse and Lisa having an identity crisis while becoming a member of the “KKK” for a bit. It was delicious comedy.

Tonight, on “Poetic Injustice,” Fred and Sheila strike up a croquet match with Dallas and George, and Fred misreads Sheila’s interest in George. Fred tells George that Sheila is fantasizing about him and asks him to seduce her. Meanwhile, Tessa desperately wants to impress the new poetry teacher, Ms. Evans, but she seems to prefer Dalia’s prose.

To see if George will get his seduction on with Sheila, tune in to ABC at 8:30/7:30c for an all new episode. Learn where to find episodes online of Suburgatory @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Survivor, CSI, One Tree Hill, and American Idol.

Two weeks ago when we left Revenge, murder was in the air at Emily and Daniel’s engagement party, and low and behold, it wasn’t Daniel’s. When Daniel returned to the party with blood on his hands, literally, it was Tyler who had met his end. Jack reunited with Amanda briefly, as she fled once again after her dealings with Tyler took an ugly turn. Charlotte took some desperate measures in order to soothe the pain of her family’s betrayal.

On tonight’s episode, “Scandal,” the murder scandal from Emily and Daniel’s Fire & Ice party continues to rock the Hamptons, and someone has to take the fall. Meanwhile, the devastating turn of events calls for extreme measures as the Graysons try to form a united front. Emily becomes increasingly anxious, and Ashley steps up for the family as Jack is not the only one who is wondering where Amanda has gone.

Tune in to ABC at 10/9c for the heatwave in the Hamptons to continue to swelter! Learn where to find episodes online of Revenge @ Clicker.

My pick tonight is Law & Order: SVU. I have always enjoyed this show, but this season, it’s really gotten me back strongly as a viewer. I’m still loving the new characters, but even Benson is back to being a character that I enjoy watching, which hasn’t been the case for a couple of seasons. I love that she is involved with Harry Connick Jr’s attorney character. On last week’s episode, she went to him about a case, desperate for help, and he just told her to remember that if they wanted their relationship to work, she couldn’t do that—and he DID want their relationship to work. It was terrific. I read a tweet from a critic about this week’s winter finale being extremely good, so I’m really looking forward to it.

On tonight’s episode, “Child’s Welfare,” Detective Benson’s half-brother Simon Marsden (guest star Michael Weston) turns up in New York after a five year absence, and asks for help – Child Services is threatening to take his children away from him. She asks defense attorney Bayard Ellis (guest star Andre Braugher) to represent her brother, but the seemingly simple case turns into a disaster for Ellis and his client. Meanwhile, a homeless couple finds a newborn baby abandoned near a hospital, and Detectives Fin and Rollins follow the evidence to a shocking discovery.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to watch American Idol, Suburgatory, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, Happy Endings, Psych, & Restaurant: Impossible.

Kyle’s Choice

Psych is back tonight for the first of the final 7 episodes of the sixth season. When we last left the gang, Gus discovered that Shawn was carrying around an engagement ring. This show is always so much fun, and tonight’s extended-length Indiana Jones-inspired episode is excellent! I love how when Psych pays homage to another show or movie, they also bring in related guest stars. In tonight’s episode, John Rhys-Davies, who played Sallah in the Indy movies, guest stars. Cary Elwes also returns as Desperaux in tonight’s episode—such a fun character, and I love the relationship between Shawn and him.

In tonight’s episode, “Indiana Shawn and the Temple of the Kinda Crappy, Rusty Old Dagger,” Shawn and Gus team up with Despereaux to locate a mythical dagger rumored to be the key to unlocking a dead billionaire’s treasure.

Check the site later for my interview with stars James Roday and Dule Hill, and then tune in tonight on USA Network at 10/9c for the new episode. Learn where to find episodes online of Psych @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching: Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Happy Endings, Revenge, Top Chef, Face Off, Whitney, and Are You There, Chelsea?.

Lisa’s Choice #2

Last week on Happy Endings, these misfit friends from Chicago were stoked for Jane and Brad’s annual “spring smackdown,” because it meant that the couple would lavish them with attention and gifts. This event also signaled Max’s end of hibernation, since it was winter’s end.

Tonight, on “Cocktails & Dreams,” Dave gets a liquor license for his “Steak Me Home Tonight” truck, and it suddenly becomes the next big trendy place in Chicago, which leads Dave to think that his friends are avoiding him because they’re jealous of his newfound fame. The real reason is something far different! His signature drink is giving almost everyone sex dreams about Dave, except Alex, who is on an alcohol free fast. Colin Hanks (The Good Guys) guest stars.

Drink up with and make merry at 9:30/8:30c on ABC! Learn where to find episodes online of Happy Endings @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am also watching The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, and Psych!
