If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/25/12

Tonight, my niece graduates from elementary school, in preparation for high school next year. It’s so bittersweet. I am so proud of the young woman she is becoming, but I still miss that little baby who used to fall asleep in my arms. *sigh* To distract me from my moment of nostalgia, let’s take a look at what you should be watching tonight.

Hell’s Kitchen is really starting to make me angry this season. The women are complete and utter failures when it comes to dinner service and working as a team. Kimmie is a whiny baby, while Robyn and Tiffany are really acting like small-minded witches. I don’t have have a single member of the Red Team that I am rooting for. The men aren’t much better, but I will say that since Roshni has joined the Blue Team, she’s being doing much better. Perhaps all she needed was to get away from the drama. During last week’s episode, the teams had to prepare for a fashion show that’s going to take place in Hell’s Kitchen, and we’ll have to see how they manage with timing. We were left with a “to be continued.”

On tonight’s episode, “13 Chefs Part 2,” the teams must put on a dinner service timed in sync with three runway shoes going on in the dining room.

To see if the chefs will succeed or be crushed by fashion, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hell’s Kitchen @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, The Bachelorette, Bunheads, and Teen Wolf.

Last week on Eureka, Jack met Marcus, Allison’s pompous, rude, elitist brother. Marcus was prejudiced against Jack before he’d even met him simply because Jack isn’t a genius—he’s a blue-collar sheriff and Marcus doesn’t feel like that’s good enough, that Allison will get tired of lowering herself to his level. Now, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Why are the writers so determined to make me dislike Allison this season? Even when she got back with Stark, I’ve always liked her before this season, but now… Up until the last couple of minutes of last week’s episode, she basically let her brother talk crap about Jack and put him down, getting all sorts of little digs in. It ticked me off, and if I were Jack, I’d have been mad that she didn’t put her foot down to Marcus sooner. Sure, she stuck up for him at the end, but… I dunno. There’s a ton more I could say about last week’s episode, because I did enjoy it (evil Andy was terrific, but Jack was really scary. LOL I was also glad to see that Holly was able to leave Sarah, even if her first “body” was a meltdown, literally). I’m still enjoying this last season, but I do hope Allison quits pissing me off. 😉

On tonight’s episode, “The Honeymooners,” a mysterious file leads Jo to uncover a spy ring inside Eureka with devastating consequences and disturbs Allison and Jack’s less than perfect honeymoon plans.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Bachelorette, Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, America’s Got Talent, American Ninja Warrior, Pawn Star$, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

MasterChef has been great this season—we’ve got an interesting crop of contestants this year! Last week, Ryan won the offal Mystery Box challenge, and for his reward, he chose to have the other contestants cook with crab. However, he got to assign which half of the contestants would get canned crab and the which half would get live crab. In true evil genius style, he assigned blind Christine live crab, as well as his bromance partner, Tali. Meanwhile, he gave his nemesis Monti the canned crab. As the contestants struggled with their ingredients, Ryan watched from the balcony with this evil grin plastered on his face. However, Ryan’s plans backfired as Christine’s dish was the judges favorite—they even had Ryan taste her dish to see how well it turned out. The judges also enjoyed Monti’s canned crab scotched egg. Tali’s dish was in the bottom three, but it was Helene who went home.

I was really hoping Tali would go home to give Ryan that third slap in the face. While I find Ryan completely despicable, I must admire his ability to be play the game purely strategically and not let pesky things like morals get in the way. The thing is that Ryan does have the skills to back up his mouth. If he was all talk, it would be different story. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this whole Ryan/Monti/Christine saga!

In tonight’s episode, “Top 14 Complete,” the hopefuls get an early-morning wakeup call from the judges, who split them into teams and task them with cooking breakfast for hungry hotel guests.

See who does something to earn the call of “No cheating!” tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of MasterChef @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Glass House, Hell’s Kitchen, Bunheads, Eureka, and Teen Wolf.
