If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/5/12

Hope all the fellow Americans had a great 4th of July yesterday! I had a pretty good day. Spent time with the family, had a great dinner of hamburgers, sausage, & corn on the cob on the grill, and watched The Matrix 3, since my kiddo had never seen it. It’s back to work today, but thankfully, it’s only a short rest of the week because of yesterday, so… Settle in tonight, relax, and know you don’t have much left of the work week. 🙂 Now, see what we think you should be watching tonight!

Last week’s Rookie Blue was kind of tough to watch. Our poor non-rookie rookies had a rough go of it. Traci screwed up on her first case as a detective-in-training, but then she went on to solve the case with the help of several of the others. She and Jerry are definitely having problems working together. Poor Dov is feeling so guilty about the shooting. He went to give groceries to the boy’s family, and when the sister caught him, he tried to make it up to her by driving her around…but she really just wanted him to explain about that day. It didn’t work out for her, but he seemed to feel better at the end of the episode…until he lied to his girlfriend about going to his appointment with the shrink. She had just received a phone call saying he’d missed his appointment, so she knew he’d lied. It’ll be interesting to see how Dov continues to handle (or not…) the aftereffects of it all. Noelle’s pregnancy & father of the baby has been outed—to Oliver, at least. And Sam and Andy had some cute moments. I love how they are a couple now, yet the show hasn’t become the lovey-dovey “Sandy” show. Those cute moments are enough (for the most part) for this Sam/Andy shipper. 😉

I’m really looking forward to tonight’s episode because we dive deep into Andy’s personal life. I can’t wait to see how she handles seeing her mother. Will Sam help her with it all? Will Traci?

On tonight’s episode, “Messy Houses,” Andy answers a domestic disturbance call to find the social worker on the scene is her estranged mother; Sam, Nick, Chris and Gail search for a mother and her two children; a stash of guns recovered by Detective Barber turns up on the streets. Barbara Williams, Peter MacNeill, Krista Bridges, & Jonathan Goad guest star.

Don’t miss it tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rookie Blue @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Duets, Take Me Out, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, & Men at Work.

Breaking Pointe has changed the way people are seeing ballerinas. Don’t get me wrong, there are still the beautiful dancers, but they have opened the world’s eyes to the athleticism required to do what they do. Last week, we watched the opening nights unfold, with a few hitches. Here’s the thing… I think Allison is a fabulous dancer, but she is dramatic to no end. I get it… Your love life is a mess. Welcome to the world of the rest of us! We aren’t all picket fences and happy. Relationships suck. If Allison and Rex aren’t going to make it work, then they need to move on from each other so it stops affecting their work and their mental state. Whew. Overall, the episode was riveting, and we got to see some amazing ballet, but I just want more dancing and less relationship drama. (Rex and Allison, I’m pointing at you.)

On tonight’s season (most likely series) finale, “Curtain Call,” everyone is concerned about Rex after his fall on opening night, but the show must go on with closing night and the end of the ballet season right around the corner. Meanwhile, Christiana has a meltdown when her husband Chris quizzes her about life after ballet, and Rex and Allison have a showdown.

To see if these dancers can all finish on a high note, tune in to The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Breaking Pointe @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Rookie Blue and Saving Hope.

I’m looking forward to another fun new episode of Wilfred tonight. Last week, three months had passed since Ryan last saw Wilfred. When Ryan went to Jenna’s house to see him, he discovered that her wedding with Drew was still on, despite her not actually being pregnant, and that Drew had just moved in with her. Meanwhile, Wilfred accused Ryan of being selfish and said that he no longer needed him, so Ryan obtained steroids for Wilfred so he could outperform his rival, Jelly Bean, in a dog agility competition. Also, in an effort to move on, Ryan asked his co-worker out on a date.

So it looks like it’s back to business as usual between Wilfred and Ryan. It will be interesting to see how the season progresses, especially with this new relationship for Ryan. It is great to see Allison Mack back on TV as Ryan’s new love interest—she was my favorite part of Smallville. I’m also interested to know what’s going on with Ryan’s sister—and how she’s dealing with her pregnancy—so hopefully, we’ll get an update on her soon.

In tonight’s episode, “Dignity,” problems emerge for Ryan as a result of Wilfred’s popularity.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Rookie Blue, Saving Hope, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, Men at Work, and Awkward.
