If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/26/12

Your remote, like your conscience, can be your guide. And just like your conscience and your remote, you should always listen to your instincts. Follow your instincts and let your remote be your guide because tonight, you have an evening filled with new episodes that will help you get your fix of freedom. The world and your Thursday night TV watching is your oyster. Let loose, think outside of the box, and let the night take you wherever it made lead you.

Last week on Community, we found out the study group had one of their final exams postponed, which allowed them all a bit of freedom. Annie talked Abed into letting her spend some time in the dreamatorium with him. Unfortunately, an innocent simulation of how lunch between Troy and Britta might go turned into a fantastical examination of the study group.

Tonight, on “Basic Lupine Urology,” when the study group’s science experiment is destroyed, they try to find the criminal and save the grade. When Troy and Abed think they have discovered the perpetrator, a professor (guest star Michael K. Williams) reluctantly presides over a trial.

Tune in to NBC at 8/7c and don’t forget to bring your study guide! Learn where to find episodes online of Community @ Clicker.

The Big Bang Theory never fails to make me laugh, and the last episode was no exception. Stephen Hawking, the epitome of these characters, guest starred, and it was just as perfect as I’d hoped it would be. Hawking was supposed to be a guest speaker at the college where the boys work, and Howard was asked to work on his wheelchair. Sheldon tried to convince Howard to introduce him, but he was his perfectly insulting self, being rude to Howard, and Howard decided not to. Finally, Howard gave in to all of Sheldon’s begging and basically made him work for it. Sheldon had to polish Howard’s best buckle collection (including “bounce back” pee droplets from the urinal…ew.), take Howard’s mother dress shopping, and finally, he had to compliment Howard about his job. Howard finally admits that he already gave Hawking Sheldon’s paper that Sheldon wanted to show him and Hawking was impressed. When Sheldon finally met Hawking, he complimented the paper but pointed out a math error Sheldon had made…and when Sheldon realized it was true, he fainted dead away. After all that, the wheelchair didn’t even get fixed right…Howard had leftover springs and bolts! *laugh* So fantastically amusing!

On tonight’s episode, “The Stag Convergence,” Howard’s wedding plans are in jeopardy after the guys throw him a bachelor party. Bernadette reconsiders marrying Howard after learning about his sexual history. Guest stars include Kevin Sussman as Stuart, John Ross Bowie as Kripke, Wil Wheaton as himself.

Laugh along tonight on CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

Why do we watch dramas? It’s simple. We watch dramas to make our own real life drama seem less severe – which is why a teenage drama about witches is exactly what the doctor ordered for me. Bring on The Secret Circle. There’s relationship issues, family issues, and so many reasons to watch, and yet, so sad…it’s only one hour a week. It’s my weekly dose of guilty pleasure television – and it should be yours, as well!

On tonight’s episode, “Traitor,” when a crystal is magically stolen from the abandoned house, the Circle decides it was the traitor witch working with Eben, so Jake calls for a meeting with Isaac to see if they can get him to change sides. Cassie’s loose grasp on her dark magic threatens to destroy any possible alliance when their pursuit of the traitor leads them to the “Creepiest Place on Earth.” Meanwhile, Faye and Jake work together to steal Dawn’s crystal, Melissa and Adam pair up and uncover a new magic trick, and a frustrated Diana reaches out to Charles for help.

Get your spell on at 9/8c on The CW. Learn where to find episodes online of The Secret Circle @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Missing, American Idol, Touch, Person of Interest, The Mentalist, Scandal, The Big Bang Theory, Awake, and The Vampire Diaries.

I’m looking forward to the live 30 Rock episode tonight. The last time they did this was back at the beginning of the fifth season in 2010. I love the whole “no safety net” aspect of a live show and secretly hope for some sort of mess up or for an actor to crack or forget a line. It’s also interesting to see how the format of a show gets adapted for live TV. For example, last time, they used Julia Louis-Dreyfus to play Liz Lemon in the flash/dream sequences – which was both practical, because Tina Fey couldn’t be on two sets at once, and a lot of fun. It’s also great how they do live performances for both coasts, and NBC makes both versions available online. It’s fun to watch the West Coast airing the next day to see what jokes or bits were changed. It’s interesting to see how the slightest changes can really alter the viewing experience.

In tonight’s episode, “Live From Studio 6H,” Kabletown breaks news that “TGS” will no longer be live. Liz and Jack embrace the change, believing a cheap, taped show will equal less headaches. Only Kenneth balks, so he leads the crew on a magical mystery tour through the rich history of Studio 6H.

Don’t miss it live tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of 30 Rock @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, Missing, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Community, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Awake, Touch, and Sweet Genius.
