If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/1/12

I just got back from a little trip to the States, and I have to say that I wasn’t pleased at all with my experience crossing the Michigan border. After waiting in line to show my passport and finally getting to the border agent, I was then treated to a secondary search and some interesting questions. I’m not quite sure it was my lip ring, my answers, or the fact that a girl was traveling by herself, but this man had it out for me and my soccer mom van. *grr* I was not impressed and didn’t have my usual DVR to sit back and relax to. *Deep Breath* I’m calm now, so let’s see what’s on tv tonight to help keep my mind off the evil border agent.

Glee has been knocking it out of the park with this second half of their season in a lot of ways, and not hugely awesome in other ways. I didn’t hate the Whitney Houston tribute episode, but I thought that the meaning behind the show could have been delivered in a different manner. I’m not sure I’m loving this relationship between Quinn and Joe (who still freaks me out a bit) or the rocky times Blaine and Kurt are having. This reminds me – a quick side poll – is sexting actually cheating? Things that make you go hmm…

On tonight’s episode, “Choke,” Rachel and Kurt finally get their chance to audition for the New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts. Meanwhile, Puck makes a decision about his future after a meeting with his father.

To see how Rachel and Kurt can hack it at the auditions, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Glee @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching and DVRing New Girl, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Unforgettable, and The Voice.

It’s hard for me to write up tonight’s NCIS: LA because I have yet to watch last night’s Hawaii Five-0, which was part 1 of the 2 episode cross-over event. On the first part, Callen and Sam visited Hawaii in order to track the bad guy with the deadly virus. Tonight, the shoe’s on the other foot… [Update: Ok, so I watched. It was a great episode, but I just want to say one thing: How freakin STUPID was the guy who switched tickets with the doctor?? He committed what I assume is a felony that, after 9/11, might get him sent to Guantanimo Bay or something…for $500?! He’s seriously, ridiculously stupid. Oh, and how about one of the big bad guys in all this being a Comescu? Makes it hugely personal for poor Callen, does it not? *sigh* Poor guy. 🙁 ]

On tonight’s episode, “Touch of Death,” the joint NCIS: Los Angeles and Hawaii Five-0 task force travel from Hawaii to Los Angeles, when the lead suspect in the case moves to the mainland with a deadly virus in tow. Scott Caan and Daniel Dae Kim guest star.

Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS: LA @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing NCIS, Unforgettable, Last Man Standing, Cougar Town, Chopped, No Kitchen Required, & the season finale of Top Shot.

Last week, The CW kicked off the new Canadian import series, The L.A. Complex, which follows a group of young Hollywood hopefuls all living in the same Los Angeles apartment-style motel. The twenty-somethings are a mix of aspiring actors, dancers, producers, and comedians. In the opener, actress Abby Vargas moved from Toronto to L.A. in hopes of making it big but has been struggling to launch her career. When she gets evicted from her apartment, she finds a place to crash at “The Lux,” where she meets other Canadians like herself who moved to the US in hopes of finding stardom.

Last week’s pilot was a fresh, interesting new dramatic series. I found these characters very likeable, and I really wanted them to succeed – the complete opposite of how I felt watching HBO’s Girls, which also portrays a group of 20-somethings in the city. It was great seeing Jewel Staite on TV again – I really enjoyed her on Firefly and Stargate: Atlantis (though, I’ll always remember her for her role in the mid-90’s series Flash Forward). I’m interested in seeing more of her latest character, Raquel Westbrook – an actress who had a successful series when she was younger but now has trouble finding work.

In tonight’s episode, “Do Something”, Raquel tries to get a movie rolling; Alicia goes to a party with a D-list actor; Tariq is offered the chance to produce a track for a big rapper; Abby is offered a part.

Check it out tonight on The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The L.A. Complex @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching Glee, New Girl, Last Man Standing, Cougar Town, The Voice, and Chopped.

Jess’s awkwardness absolutely knows no boundaries. Last week on New Girl, she tried to befriend Russell’s ex-wife Uli but ended up realizing that she may be lacking the fire and passion that fueled Uli and Russell’s previous relationship. Schmidt and CeCe hit a rough patch in their relationship after CeCe’s pregnancy scare. Not wanting to admit her feelings for Schmidt, she allowed him to see other women. This led to Schmidt going out on a date with CeCe’s Russian roommate, who did quite the damage to Schmidt’s penis, which sent him to the hospital. Forced to confront the idea of a real relationship, CeCe relented and finally told Schmidt she didn’t want him dating anyone else. Also, Jess caught Nick and his ex-girlfriend Caroline (guest star Mary Elizabeth Ellis) after a tryst and wondered what this meant.

Tonight, on “Backslide,” the gang worries that both Jess and Nick may be backsliding in their relationships when they run into their exes Paul (Justin Long) and Caroline. Meanwhile, Schmidt faces a very delicate medical issue.

Tonight, I am also watching Glee, Cougar Town, The L.A. Complex, and The Voice!
