If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/9/12

It’s been an eventful weekend for me. I had a few days away, which were amazing beyond description—such a learning experience. Then I attended the fabulous celebration for my best friend’s 30th birthday. Crazy to think in just 10 short days, I’ll be leaving my twenties behind, as well. Eek! To keep my mind off my advancing age, let’s take a look at what you should be watching tonight.

Hell’s Kitchen has always been one of my favorite summer shows, and while I still love it, I despise the contestants this year. The women on this season are incredibly annoying, and I believe that Robyn might indeed be insane. That girl has a huge chip on her shoulder and a temper that adds fuel to the fire—not to mention her sneaky, backstabbing ways. *sigh* I told you I despise these contestants. Robyn and Kimmie were at each other’s throats all service, and basically, it all came down to a showdown with Robyn being nominated.

She was all up in everyone’s faces and telling Ramsay what a good chef she is. Chef Ramsay has more patience than I have because he allowed Robyn to stay but put her on the blue team. I predict she is going to make that team fall apart, too. The drama is by far the best part right now—there’s nothing like someone else’s drama to make you feel better about your own. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “10 Chefs Compete,” the Red and Blue Teams compete against each other in a challenge that forces them to think on their feet; three special guests attend the dinner service.

To see the Crazy Witches of Hell’s Kitchen, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hell’s Kitchen @ Clicker.

The powers that be certainly are upping the ante and the suspense on Eureka. Next week is the series finale, and they are doing everything they can to throw us curve ball after curve ball. One week, this person’s a bad guy. The next week, it’s this person. Things were all crazy at the end of last week’s episode, and we have no idea how the characters will get themselves out of the mess they are in. Holly is totally off her rocker…somehow being manipulated and controlled. Who is behind it all? Is it Beverly Barlow? Senator Wen? Or some other big baddie? I don’t know…but I do know that if they don’t give all (ALL!) our favorite characters a happy ending, I’ll be sorely pissed off!

On tonight’s episode, “Double Take,” the people of Eureka are being kidnapped and replaced by body-doubles one by one unless Allison, Fargo, and Zane can figure out how to avoid capture and save their own.

Don’t miss the exciting next-to-last episode tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Eureka @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing The Bachelorette, Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, American Ninja Warrior, Pawn Star$, & the series premiere of Perception.

Tonight, TNT kicks off a new crime drama called Perception. Quirky college professor Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack) once assisted the FBI with cases but has since drifted away from this. When a former student—now FBI Agent—Kate Moretti (Rachael Leigh Cook) is reassigned to the area, she pulls him back into the process. Dr. Pierce seems to fluctuate between eccentric and insane, and sometimes, he just seems out of touch with reality. But perhaps there’s some truth to that—he has these visions where even he is unsure if he is dealing in reality or some sort of dream. However, these visions help guide him toward the answers he needs to solve the case.

The characters are interesting and have multiple layers—just as you think you have them figured out, there’s a new twist. I like the relationship between Dr. Pierce and his former student. They work well together, like old partners, and she doesn’t seem bothered by his eccentricities. I’m interested to see how these characters and relationships develop and what interesting cases they will come across. It is great to see Rachel Leigh Cook again—though, she’ll always be the She’s All That girl to me, and I’m also excited to see LeVar Burton back on my TV as Pierce’s boss.

In tonight’s “Pilot,” an offbeat neuroscience professor suffering from paranoid schizophrenia works with the FBI to crack intricate cases in this crime drama. In the series premiere, the professor zeros in on the death of a pharmaceutical executive.

Check it out tonight on TNT at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Perception @ Clicker.

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