If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/2/12

I can’t stop talking about the heat, but oh man… I hope you guys are managing to stay cool! Our AC has been running constantly, and with that and two fans, I tend to stay cool most of the day and night. Blech. lol On a different note, there’s some fantastic TV on tonight to take my mind off the temperature outside, so check out what we think you should be watching.

Last week’s episode of Eureka was crazy! Jack planned what he felt like was a romantic honeymoon for himself and Allison at a fixer-upper cabin in the woods. Unfortunately, it was a mess, and it only got messier the longer they stayed. In the end, Allison told Jack she’d stay and help him if he promised to take her to Fiji on their next trip. On the Holly front, she is now in a body! After going a little crazy, thinking they were still in the “Matrix,” and holding Jack at gunpoint, they rebooted her and everything seemed to be fine.

And finally…one of the things Jack & Allison found at the cabin was a file from GD. It was thought that the previous sheriff had been investigating a spy within GD from the Consortium. After the others back in Eureka go through the disc that was included in the file, Grace was caught trying to steal the disc and was arrested because they believed her to be the spy. She admitted to Henry that it isn’t HER on the disc…it was HIM. She said that he was the one that taught her everything she knows. Poor Henry is so confused… Remember, he came back from 1940 to this strange reality in which he was married to a woman he’d never met before. So was the alternate Henry a bad guy? Eek!

There are only 3 episodes left, including this week’s, so there’s not a lot of time left to clear everything up. Poor Henry. I just want him to be happy! I hope they put that to rest quickly. 🙁

On tonight’s episode, “Mirror, Mirror,” a malfunctioning experiment cuts Eureka off from the world and threatens to destroy all human life in town unless Carter can figure out who sabotaged the experiment and stop them before it’s too late.

Don’t miss it tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Eureka @ Clicker.

Teen Wolf loves to make me sit on the edge of my seat—and I have to admit, I love being there. I knew that it was too obvious for Lydia to be the Kanima, but Jackson didn’t seem possible, either. I was obviously wrong because Jackson transformed into the Kanima; however, we still don’t know if Lydia is a shape-shifter or what she is because she was immune to the Kanima slime. Derek isn’t happy that Scott won’t join his pack but was even less impressed that he seems to have formed his own pack with Stiles, Allison, even Lydia and Jackson. This little pack of the most unlikely alies kind of reminds me of “The Scooby Gang” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Ah, memories. This season of Teen Wolf has been an adventure from the very first scene, and I am looking forward to seeing what else we’re going to be faced with in the coming weeks.

On tonight’s episode, “Frenemy,” Scott and Stiles work to protect their friends when new information is revealed; Allison is tasked with investigation.

To see how they all deal with Jackson and other shape-shifting issues, tune in to MTV at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Teen Wolf @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, The Bachelorette, and Cake Boss.

Tonight, the wannabe MasterChefs continue to battle it out for the title. Last week, the Mystery Box challenge had the chefs trying to create a meal that could sell at a restaurant for $40 out of less than $20 worth of ingredients. The top three t-bone dishes belonged to Frank, Tanya, and Becky, with a shocked Tanya named the winner. This allowed her to skip the elimination challenge and let her assign the judges’ favorite desserts (tiramisu, strawberry shortcake, and trifle) to each of her competitors. In the end, Stacey won for her balsamic trifle, and the bottom three were Felix’s free-form tiramisu, Scott’s doughy strawberry shortcake, and Becky’s oddly-flavored trifle. Things didn’t look good for Felix, but it was Scott who was sent packing.

I was getting really nervous that Felix was going to go—Gordon even did one of his trademark long pause switcheroos, saying “Felix, it’s time to say goodbye…to Scott.” I’m still rooting for Christine, with Felix as my backup. While I won’t really miss Scott, I was sad to see Ryan go last week because he added an interesting dynamic to the show. However, his absence has allowed some new faces to rise the top of the Mystery Box challenge. I would really like to see Tali go next—he is a disaster.

In tonight’s episode, the 12 remaining hopefuls are split into three teams for a food-truck challenge that requires them to create budget-friendly meals for beachgoers.

See who rises to the challenge and who falters 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, Eureka, and Teen Wolf.
