If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/8/12

It’s Thursday, which means we’re one step closer to the weekend for most of us. Of course, it also means no more school until the 20th for my kiddo, who is off Friday of this week, all next week, and the Monday after that for Spring Break. Happy joy… *laugh* So while I have that to look forward to, I’m going to be glad to get some great new episodes tonight. To find out what we think you should be watching tonight, check out our choices below.

Tonight is the spring finale of The Finder, which is both good and bad news. That’s bad news, because I quite enjoy this show. It’s not perfect, but I feel like the cast is gelling with every episode (as a new cast should), and the storylines are always fun. The good news is, Bones comes back in a month. Still…I’m sad to see this show go for now. I’m still not Willa’s biggest fan, but even with that, I think the show is great. The last episode was fun, seeing TJ Thyne as his Bones character, Jack Hodgins, come to Walter for help. This week’s looks really great, so I’m excited for it, even if it’s the last episode until April 6, when it returns in its new timeslot, on Fridays at 8/7c.

On tonight’s episode, “Eye of the Storm,” a severe hurricane strikes Southern Florida, but torrential weather will not stop Walter from searching for a female high school student who went missing during the storm. While Walter is stranded on Looking Glass Key at the Ends of the Earth Bar, Isabel visits the missing girl’s high school and uncovers clues that link her disappearance to foul play and a more serious and life threatening crime. Meanwhile, Willa’s probation officer is stormed in with Walter, Leo and Willa, and puts her differences with Willa aside to help the team solve the case of the missing girl.

Check it out tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Finder @ Clicker.

Parks and Recreation is always a highlight of the Thursday night NBC comedy lineup. Last week, Leslie and Ben had to deal with Bobby Newport’s fast-talking campaign manager, who found a way to twist every situation to make Leslie look bad. Meanwhile, Chris told Ron he needed to hire some replacements for Leslie to pick up the slack at the Parks and Rec department. He tries to solve a water fountain issue raised by Anne and then reluctantly agrees to start grooming April to help stop things from falling though the cracks.

On Tuesday night, I watched the live stream of the Paley Center panel with the cast and crew. You could really see how well this cast and crew work together and just have a fun time making the show, which really shows in the final product. During that discussion, it was revealed that they filmed two endings for the election – one where Leslie wins, and one where she doesn’t. I found it interesting that even some of the cast members don’t know which is the real outcome.

In tonight’s episode, “Lucky,” Leslie lands a big interview on an Indianapolis talk show. Meanwhile, Andy preps for his final exam in his women’s studies course, with help from Ron and April. Sean Hayes guest stars as talk show host Buddy Wood.

See it tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, 30 Rock, The Office, Up All Night, Awake, and The Finder.

This has been one of those weeks where I am in need of some good giggles, so thank goodness that tonight, The Big Bang Theory is on! Week after week, the antics of this group of geeks makes me smile, and for that, I love it. Sheldon’s absurdity is something that makes my life seem normal, and when I’m really having a bad day, my friends will sing me “Soft Kitty” – and that always makes it better. Last time on The Big Bang Theory, we watched Sheldon’s life be disturbed because his barber was in the hospital, but eventually, he was convinced to let Penny cut his hair. She did well until the end, and now he has a strip of hair missing in the back – hopefully, he won’t notice. We also watched Wolowitz (aka Fruit Loops) at Space training, and the program was kicking his ass – then Bernadette flew out to help him and was surprised his mommy came along as well. That boy has some serious mommy issues.

On tonight’s episode, “The Weekend Vortex,” Sheldon opts to spend a weekend playing video games with the guys instead of attending a birthday party for Amy’s aunt.

To see what lesson about relationships Sheldon learns this week, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

I’m also going to be watching/DVRing American Idol, The Finder, Person of Interest, Up All Night, Awake, & The Mentalist.

Last week on Parks and Recreation, Leslie’s campaign opponent Bobby Newport hired a powerful campaign manager (guest star Kathryn Hahn). Meanwhile, Ron was forced to interview replacements for Leslie and found it in quite the unlikely person: April!

Tonight, on “Lucky,” an Indianapolis talk show host asks to interview Leslie, while April and Ron help Andy try to get ready for his final exam.

Laugh out loud comedy is just a click away on your remote at 8:30/7:30c on NBC! Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

I am also watching 30 Rock and Project Runway All Stars!
