If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/7/12

It’s a huge night for TV – especially for fans of certain shows – so let’s get to it. Keep reading to see what we think you should be watching.

Last week’s Castle was epic. Zombies, some honesty finally with Castle & Beckett, Alexis deciding to go to college in New York… The case itself was great, really in true Castle fashion. A guy participating in “zombie walks,” where he dressed up as a zombie and chased people through the streets, got dosed with the “zombie drug” and given the directive to kill a man? I’ve never seen Rick Castle so excited as when he realized the case really was dealing with “zombies.” This season has been leading up one pivotal episode, and that is tonight’s season finale. All of the feelings Beckett & Castle have been dealing with for four seasons plus Beckett’s mother’s mother all culminate tonight, when Beckett learns Castle has been keeping a big secret from her, as well. Will we get complete resolution to not only Joanna Beckett’s murder but also Kate’s shooting in last season’s finale. It is going to be an exciting, thrilling episode and one that fans, whether you’re a “Caskett” fan or not, won’t want to miss. (And for Castle/Beckett shippers, the title of the episode should be squee-worthy…)

On tonight’s episode, “Always,” when the murder of an Army veteran puts Beckett on the trail of the man who shot her, Castle must decide how much he’s willing to sacrifice to keep her safe. As secrets are revealed and feelings are put on the table, the lives of the detectives at the 12th Precinct may never be the same.

Don’t miss it tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

When 2 Broke Girls premiered this season, it was instantly added to my list of favorites. I love the chemistry between the cast, but more importantly, the spot on humour that occasionally steps out of bounds is a perfect distraction from everyday life. Max and Caroline have been busy girls this season while they try to build their cupcake business. Last episode, we watched while Caroline tried to push them out of the nest to take on bigger orders, and Max believed they should stay realistic and still do the cleaning job because it pays. These two are always going to disagree, but in the end, their friendship smoothes everything over.

On tonight’s 1-hour (well, 2 back-to-back 30-minute episodes) season finale, “And Martha Stewart Have a Ball,” Max and Caroline plan to attend a big fashion gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art where Martha Stewart is scheduled to be a guest.

To see how the premiere season of this stellar comedy wraps up, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of 2 Broke Girls @ Clicker.

Last week on Eureka, Senator Wen had moved the kidnapped Eurekans to a freighter out at sea. So Carter entered the virtual world to help the others locate the barge. Once he sent the signal, the rest of the gang found the ship and freed the Astraeus crew. Then, just when it looked like Carter was going to be swallowed up in the collapsing virtual world, Beverly Barlowe pulled him out and then disappeared herself, taking Senator Wen and confining her to her own virtual prison.

It was nice to see Senator Wen get a taste of her own medicine. However, it was devastating to see Fargo’s discovery of Holly’s death. I really hope that they find a way to bring her back – I really want Fargo and Holly to get their happy ending before the series comes to an end.

In tonight’s episode, “Friendly Fire,” Fargo deals with Holly’s death, Zane and Allison evaluate their romantic relationships after their experiences in the virtual reality, and a project threatens to ignite the town.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching 2 Broke Girls, Castle, Smash, Bones, House, and Hart of Dixie.

On last week’s Smash epsiode, Ivy was worried that Derek was growing too close to “Bombshell” leading lady Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman). Karen was forced to choose between Dev’s marriage proposal and the hard work, blood, sweat, and tears, and it didn’t end well. Ellen and Julia fought over the possibility of Michael returning. Meanwhile, Sam brought his new boyfriend, Tom, to a family dinner. With all the changes and upheavel happening, can Bombshell withstand the heat?

Tonight, on “Previews,” the musical, “Bombshell,” faces its first audience just as a major crisis hits Rebecca Duvall. The team of Tom and Julia scramble to fix the show when the first preview falls short, and Frank must adjust to the unwelcome return of Michael Swift to his life. Dev seeks reconciliation with Karen, but explosive information about Ivy lurks just beneath the surface.

The drama goes down at 10/9c on NBC! Learn where to find episodes online of Smash @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am also watching The Voice, Castle, and 2 Broke Girls!

I have to say honestly that as a shipper, this is my favorite season of Bones. There are episodes in previous seasons that are better than any we’ve seen this season, but I am really enjoying the dynamic of having Booth and Bones finally together and happy. The show hasn’t suffered at all, in my opinion, with getting the leads together (and not just together, but living together and raising a daughter). We’re coming up on the end of the season, though, since it was shortened due to Emily D’s pregnancy. I think that’s the one thing I’ve missed – the “big bad.” Yeah, we’ve seen him already, but it hasn’t seemed urgent. That’ll change soon, I know. But for tonight, we get a bit of a lighter feel…which will also be fun. Just have to touch on last week first, though. I felt awful for Max when Bones went off on him. Yeah, she had cause to worry because of her history as him as a father when she was a little girl. But in my opinion, he’s proven himself since the show began. So the very end, when she accepted him back into the house and they asked him to stay for dinner, I was thrilled. I’ve seen promo pics for the season finale, and honestly, I’m kind of worried. But…I had faith in the writers when I learned they were writing in Emily’s pregnancy, and I will have faith in them now. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “The Suit in the Set,” Brennan and Booth head out to Los Angeles to consult on the production of “Bone of Contention,” a film based on Brennan’s latest book and the work of the Jeffersonian team. While on set, Brennan intervenes after finding flaws with the actors’ performances, not to mention the film’s total disregard for science. Then she discovers that the prop cadaver being used is an actual murder victim, forcing her and Booth to launch an investigation that has real-world consequences in the land of make-believe. Meanwhile, Booth is offered a job on the studio lot, and embarrassing information is revealed about Cam’s past.

Check it out tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to watch/DVR Hawaii Five-0, Two and a Half Men, Mike & Molly, Eureka, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, & the 1-hour season finale of 2 Broke Girls.

Hawaii Five-0 was awesome last week because it was a crossover with my other favorite crime drama, NCIS: LA. Although I have to say that there has not been enough McGarrett in any of these episodes… I miss my boyfriend. 😉 I’m looking forward to seeing how the team and McGarrett reconnect and how they wrap up this season. It’s going to be an exciting push to the finish. [Jenny has seen this episode and says it’s every bit as exciting as we could want. Tons of great McGarett stuff!]

On tonight’s episode, “Ua Hopu,” just as McGarrett finally gets his hands on his arch nemesis, Wo Fat, in a special ops raid, he’s blindsided when he finds that the Japanese Yakuza is hot on their trail and wants them both dead.

To see how McGarrett and Wo Fat survive this situation, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Smash, Hart of Dixie, The Voice, Mike & Molly, and Bones.
