If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/10/12

Everything must come to an end, and it’s incredibly hard to imaginie that it’s season finale time. New fall shows were just sprouting up and old favorites were coming back with a vengance. Show renewals will soon be announced, if they haven’t been already, and we’ll soon learn the fate of the 2011-2012 season. While you have the chance to enjoy old and new favorites, make sure you tune in to tonight’s bountiful lineup of season finales. Savor the memories you’ve shared with your favorite TV show characters this season and bid them a fond farewell. Whether you see them next year or not, remember, it was fun while it lasted!

Last week on Community, the study group paid tribute to their fallen Greendale student, Star-Burns, also known as Alex, who died in a car explosion. Britta tried to use her non existent psychology skills from taking one Greendale course to counsel her fellow students. Meanwhile, Chang used the moment to seize more control over campus security, and things got wildly out of hand. A riot ensued, and the study group all ended up expelled from Greendale.

Tonight, on “Curriculum Unavailable,” when Abed becomes convinced that Deal Pelton is an imposter, he’s required to see a therapist (guest star John Hodgman).

Switch on NBC at 8/7c for the quirkiness of Community! Learn where to find episodes online of Community @ Clicker.

Tonight, I am also watching 30 Rock, The Office, Awake, and Kathy!

Last week on The Mentalist, we got to meet Lisbon’s ex-fiance, who was involved with the murder of a surfer/sunken treasure hunter. His wife was having an affair with the man. They didn’t have anything to do with his murder, though. It turned out to be the guy’s partner, who wanted the treasure for himself. The bigger story for me was Summer and Cho. Things have never been smooth in their relationship, but last week, Summer got the crap beaten out of her when she tried to help Cho’s investigation and ended up stealing cocaine from a dealer. He decided to break up with her and sent her off to live with her sister, trying to get her to clean up her life. I kinda liked them together. 🙁 She made him seem a bit less robotic. But man, she was still just a bit messed up overall, and I can see how she might not have been too good for him. heh

On tonight’s episode, “Red Rover, Red Rover,” on the eighth anniversary of his wife and daughter’s death, Jane receives a message from Red John, causing Jane to lose focus on his current case and put the investigation and his career at the CBI in jeopardy. Ray Wise (Reaper, Twin Peaks) guest stars as Dennis Victor, the owner of a brokerage firm where the CBI’s latest victim was an employee.

Don’t miss the return of Red John tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Mentalist @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching The Big Bang Theory, Missing, Rules of Engagement, & Person of Interest.

All good things must come to an end, and such is the story for this 5th season of The Big Bang Theory. I will honestly miss this show being part of my weekly activities, because as far as comedy goes, this one takes the cake. Week after week, I tune in to enjoy Sheldon’s random ramblings, Penny’s spot-on sarcasm, and Raj’s awkward silences – not to mention hope that I hear the “soft kitty” song at least once every few weeks. Last week, we saw Amy start to train Sheldon into loving the time he spends with her more by using memories from his childhood – smart woman, and frankly, I’d do almost anything for strawberry quik as well. 😉

On tonight’s season finale, “The Countdown Reflection,” Howard and Bernadette decide they want to be married before his NASA launch, so the gang rushes to put on a wedding. [Jenny’s seen this episode and says it’s one fans won’t want to miss. It’s fantastic!]

To see if these two crazy kids finally tie the knot, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Person of Interest, Missing, Awake, Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy, The Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries, and The Mentalist.

Last week on Parks and Recreation, it was the final day for campaigning, and Leslie went on a bus tour to garner some last minute votes. However, once again, Bobby Newport’s campaign manager managed to turn things around and put Leslie in some awkward situations, including literally crashing Bobby Newport Senior’s memorial service. Meanwhile, Andy investigated a pie-throwing incident at one of Leslie’s appearances, and Chris found a cure for his depression by sleeping with Jennifer Barkley.

Tonight is the season finale and the event we’ve all been waiting for – finding out who wins the City Counsel election. While I would love to see Leslie win because she deserves it, they’ve made Bobby Newport such a lovable idiot that I wouldn’t be upset with his victory. Bobby isn’t malicious or evil; he’s just simple – he knows Leslie is the better person for the job and even wants her to win! I love when they have him telling Leslie how great her speeches/points are. It could go either way tonight – the producers have said that they’ve filmed both endings. How would you like to see things play out? If Leslie wins, how would it change the show next season?!

In tonight’s episode, “Win, Lose, or Draw,” Election Day arrives in Pawnee, and the race between Leslie and Bobby Newport (Paul Rudd) is neck-and-neck. While waiting for the results, everyone reflects on what the future might bring.

See the season finale tonight on NBC at 9:31/8:31c. Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, Missing, Grey’s Anatomy, Community, 30 Rock, The Office, Awake, Touch, and Sweet Genius.
