If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/12/12

Did everyone have a good weekend? I did, except for forgetting about the time change—that really messed my schedule up. On a different note, TV is picking up this week, with more and more new shows. Last week saw the premiere of GCB, and later this week, we’ll see the premiere of Missing. Busy week, indeed, so enjoy a slower night for TV viewing and prepare for the week ahead. Let’s see what you should be watching.

Last week, the battle rounds started on The Voice, and it was a star studded event with the guest mentors there to help the team. I was pretty excited to see Kelly Clarkson there as a mentor for Team Blake, especially since I just got to see her in concert live last week. She was fabulous. Anyway, back to The Voice. Battle rounds last week were really good, and I’m happy with the choices made by the judges. It’s going to be a blood bath regardless, because the talent is so large this year.

On tonight’s episode, the battles continue, and we get to see the team leaders pitt their team members against each other. The advisers will join the mentors again this week, including Lionel Richie, Kelly Clarkson, Babyface, Jewel, Miranda Lambert, Alanis Morissette, Ne-Yo, and Robin Thicke.

To see which of the contestants survive for the live shows, tune in to NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Voice @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Smash.

Being Human continues to prove that it can come up with some great stories apart from the original UK series. Last week, the Reaper gave Sally a choice—either take his place as a reaper, or die. As a test, he asked her to shred Stevie, but when she was unwilling to do so, he shredded him in front of her. Meanwhile, Aidan tricked Henry into gathering all of Bishop’s orphaned vampires into one place so that Suren could eliminate them all at once. And Josh’s sister showed up to help him cope with his breakup, but Josh soon found her getting drunk with his prior ex.

The series has really excelled this year without the help of the UK scripts. All three of the primary characters have been given his or her own separate story. And while the interaction between these three has always been my favorite part of the show, despite with the isolated storylines, I can’t say that I have found this lacking. They have done a good job of mixing in enough of the home life along with each character’s arc.

In tonight’s episode, “When I Think About You, I Shred Myself,” Josh’s best friend returns from the dead, Aidan breaks the rules by bringing ailing Vampire Henry to the house to recuperate, and Sally’s confrontation with the Reaper rocks her to her core.

See it tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Being Human @ Clicker.

Tonight, on this refreshingly light night of new TV, I’ll also be watching Smash, Alcatraz, and The Voice (though I’m not sure for how much longer).

Lisa’s Choice

The Liars left us twisting in the wind on the last episode of Pretty Little Liars. Last week, Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Spencer were on a mission to get some more answers about what Alison knew before she died. They received a great lead from Duncan, a shady and somewhat mysterious person from Alison’s past. When the ladies thought that Duncan may have been their only lead, Jason dropped a bag of Alison’s personal items that seemed liked junk, but in reality turned out to be quite the treasure. Toby returned to Rosewood and returned to his old ways of doting on Jenna. But things turned dangerous when Hanna had to pull Jenna out of Jason’s burning house.

Tonight, on “If These Dolls Could Talk,” Emily, Hanna, Spencer, and Aria search for the meaning of the new clues they have unearthed, and it leads them to a doll hospital, which holds some eerily familiar looking dolls, along with a little boy who knows more than he leads on to. What would lead Ali to such a creepy location on her hunt for “A?” Plus, the four girls learn about the secrets that are stashed away on the shelves between the playmates. Also, Jenna’s eye surgery brings about more than just the possibility of her eyesight returning.

We are just one episode away from learning who “A” is, so don’t miss a cryptic moment of this heart pounding show, starting at 8/7c on ABC Family. Learn where to find episodes online of Pretty Little Liars @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am also watching The Voice and Smash!
