If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/27/12

It’s the start of a new week, but for a lot of people, it’s a long weekend because of Memorial Day tomorrow. So that means for those lucky people, it’s still the middle of the weekend, which means we get to relax tonight and enjoy the great new TV without having to worry about getting up early and going to work. Yay! To see what we think you should be watching tonight, read on.

I’m still really digging the new way they are doing this season of Food Network Star. It always looks like the “mentors” are having a good time, too. And so far (knock on wood), I’ve been happy with the eliminations. Last week, Kara went home, and while I didn’t hate her, she just never came across as comfortable to me. The bus tour was fun, although how Giada got Little Italy baffles me. I’m sure it was luck…but man, what luck it was. haha

On tonight’s episode, “Dessert Chopping Block,” it’s a dessert challenge with a basket of ingredients – and the contestants face Chopped judges as they play the Food Network Star version of the show.

Don’t miss the 90-minute new episode tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Food Network Star @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Cupcake Wars & Iron Chef America.

Tonight is the series finale for one of my favorite shows, Harry’s Law. I absolutely adore Kathy Bates in this role, and the supporting cast is amazing. The story lines and character growth make it worth tuning in week after week. When we last saw Harry, she was being held at gunpoint in a courtroom by family members of a murdered girl when the jury found the man not guilty. It was an intense episode, but in the end, Harry managed to diffuse the situation and all was well with the world.

On tonight’s finale, “Onward and Upward,” Harry’s ex-husband is found dead with no one to claim the body, burdening her with planning the funeral, which, to her surprise, stirs up more emotion than she anticipated. Meanwhile, with Tommy’s help, Harry agrees to represent a man publicly named a person of interest in the murder of his ex-wife. Elsewhere, Oliver tries to rope Cassie into representing a student who is suing the Law School that denied her entrance because they practice affirmative action. Other romantic entanglements are tested when Adam is pitted against Phoebe after he takes on the case of a man fired constantly popping his false teeth in and out of his mouth.

To see how Harry deals with emotions, tune in to NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Harry’s Law @ Clicker.

Last week’s episode of Game of Thrones was, frankly, pretty boring. We discovered (as if we didn’t already guess) that the bodies Theon burned were not those of the young Starks. Back at Harrenhal, Tywin Lannister decided to ride off to meet Robb Stark in battle. So Arya blackmailed Jaqen into opening the gates so that she, Gendry, and the others could escape. Meanwhile, Robb discovered that his mother had freed the captive Jaime Lannister. And Stannis and his fleet were getting close to arriving at King’s Landing.

Tonight is the episode that fans of the books have been clamoring about since the episode title was announced last year, so I’m really excited to find out what all the fuss is about. It looks like everything will come to a head tonight – and that Stannis and his men will attack King’s Landing, trying to unseat King Joffrey. I really hope we get to see the end of Joffrey (not that I really want the Baratheon’s to rule). We saw a few weeks ago that Tyrion has quite the stockpile of explosives, and I doubt Stannis is prepared for that. So it should be an interesting battle!

In tonight’s episode, “Blackwater,” the Lannisters’ control of King’s Landing is in peril when Stannis’ fleet launches an all-out assault.

Watch it tonight on HBO at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Game of Thrones @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Food Network Star and Veep.
