If We Controlled Youre Remote… 6/21/12

Can I just say a few things about last night’s Vegas episode of So You Think You Can Dance? One, I know my favorite girl of the season so far. Two, poor girl did them a favor by pairing up with a guy to perform as his partner after she’d already been put through and ended up getting kicked in the head…which impeded her performance, and she got sent home. Oh damn. And finally, three… The pop locker dude, Cyrus, is pretty cool. I don’t know how well he would do in the show, but I like him a lot. Oh, and Travis Wall? Gets hotter every time I see him. LOL But that was last night. Read on to find out what we think you should be watching tonight. 😉

The new comedy on TBS, Men at Work, wasn’t something I thought I’d stick with originally…and then I watched the premiere. I have loved every single episode. The cast is terrific (wasn’t a fan of James Lesure’s character on Mr. Sunshine, but loved him on Las Vegas, and now in this one, he’s fantastic. I really adore the other guys, too.), and the show just never fails to make me laugh. I look forward to seeing this show every week. I think my favorite episode has to be the one where Milo & Gibbs had a threesome (twice…) with a really hot chick. Or maybe it was when the guys were sure Amy was cheating on Neal. Neal confronting the blind guy was hysterical.

On tonight’s episode, “Crazy for Milo,” testing a lie-detector app reveals some tough truths for Gibbs and Tyler; Amy and Neal experiment with role-playing; Milo’s girl turns out to be a bit kooky.

Laugh along tonight on TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Men at Work @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Take Me Out, Burn Notice, and Saving Hope.

Breaking Pointe has been a complete shocker for me, in the sense that I was so sure I was going to hate it…but instead, I LOVE it. One of the things I love the most is the drama between the dancers. For example, when Beckanne got asked to do an article in a magazine for an “up-and-coming” dancer, the other girls seemed less than happy. I understand there is a hierarchy as far as earning your place, but really, she only gets these things because of her talent, not because she’s purposely stepping on people’s toes. Cut the girl some slack. I feel for the relationship between Allison and Rex because you can see they really care about each other, but dance is Allison’s boyfriend right now, and if she feels that if she is to reach her dream, that’s the way it needs to be. Again, I understand the reasoning, but sometimes I wonder if you had a functioning and supportive relationship, if maybe you wouldn’t be a stronger dancer. Just a thought.

Overall, last week’s episode was filled with ups and downs for everyone, but in the end, we know that these dancers are going to go amazing places because they are all incredibly talented.

On tonight’s episode, “Tempo Tantrums,” the dancers are feeling the pressure as they prepare for on-stage rehearsals. During the rehearsals for their upcoming performances, Allison and Ronnie find themselves struggling, while Beckanne sails through the challenging preparation effortlessly. Meanwhile, Rex has a showdown with Allison when he finally confronts her about their relationship status. Also Ronnie’s sister comes to Salt Lake City for a visit and to party with the dancers of Ballet West.

To watch these dancers pushed to their “breaking point,” tune in to The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Breaking Pointe @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Saving Hope and Take Me Out.

Tonight, Wilfred returns to FX with a “special preview episode” that bridges the gap between the two seasons. At the end of last season, Wilfred had been hit by a car, and his fate was unclear. Meanwhile, Ryan was doubting his sanity. The basement where he would hang out and smoke pot with Wilfred seemed to have vanished. Had he been imagining his time with Wilfred this whole time?!

Tonight, things pick up right where we left off. While it is probably one of the darker episodes of the series, it still mixes in plenty of humor, and does a good job bringing things back to the familiar, while also giving Ryan a bit more of a backbone. While the humor on this show will certainly not be for everyone and may be deemed offensive by some viewers, I think it’s worth checking out. The relationship between Ryan and Wilfred is an interesting and complex one and always results in humorous and awkward situations.

I recently spoke to series lead, Elijah Wood, about the new season and about the series in general & more. Check that out here.

In tonight’s episode, “Progress,” Ryan learns that life is much more challenging without Wilfred around.

See it tonight on FX at 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Wilfred @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Saving Hope, Men at Work, Burn Notice, and Suits.
