If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/16/12

It’s been a busy summer so far. Kyle is making his way back from Comic-Con, and I’m sure he’ll have lots to tell us all. Mondays this summer seem to be overflowing with good television—almost too good because I can barely keep up. So let’s take a look at what we’re suggesting you concentrate on watching.

I have been loving Bunheads. Michelle is strong, quirky, and absolutely hilarious. Then we have Fanny, who is eccentric, stubborn, and also quite funny. Together, they are comedic gold. Last week’s episode, we watching as Joffrey made Fanny jump through hoops, and Michelle suddenly stepped and helped to get the floors fixed. I also loved how Fanny insisted they weren’t seeing Boo, and she should try again with a new costume—she’s adorable. There is a strange food-related closeness between Boo and her mom—I hope they find some healthy group.

On tonight’s episode, “Money for Nothing,” Michelle is concerned when she discovers that the Fanny’s bill-paying method included old hat boxes and unconvential payment plans. After she finds herself in the middle of the collection process, Michelle decides to help Fanny better manage her finances. Michelle’s efforts could end up jeopardizing the upcoming Spring Flower Festival and Fanny’s original ballet, “Paper or Plastic.” Meanwhile, Boo’s relationship with the hot bartender at her new job makes the girls jealous.

To see if Michelle can help Fanny figure out the figures, tune in to ABC Family at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bunheads @ Clicker.

There are few shows that will forever stick with me, no matter what else I watch. They are so unique, or have characters or story lines that are so fun and interesting that they aren’t easily forgotten by their (always faithful) viewers. To me, Eureka is one of those shows. From the moment Jack Carter became sheriff of the most bizarre little town ever imagined, he won me over. He’s a genuinely nice guy who wants to see the best in everyone. His relationships with Allison, Jo, Andy, Henry, and Sarah specifically are some of the best on TV. When things between him and Allison were friends only because her ex came back into the picture, he took it gracefully and stayed an upstanding, kind, sweet friend to her. He’s always supported Jo and Henry, even through the toughest times (remember Henry’s wife a few seasons ago?), and Andy & Sarah, who are robotic and not flesh and blood human are two of the characters that he interacts with so wonderfully. Aside from Carter’s relationships, I also love all the other characters & relationships. Jo & Zane, Henry & Grace, Andy & Sarah, Fargo & Holly, as well as characters like Vincent, Taggart, Zoe (who I wished we had seen more of in the last 2 seasons), & Kevin (who was an interesting character before the time jump but a great character after)…they all served to make this an amazing show.

I will miss this after tonight’s series finale. It’s such a different, fun show, and I’m not sure I’ll ever find another like it. 🙁

On tonight’s episode, “Just Another Day,” when a series of wormholes randomly begin to materialize around Eureka, Carter finds himself racing to save the town before it can be ripped apart by the unstable phenomena or shut down by agents at the Department of Defense.

Don’t miss the series finale of this great show 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, & Perception.

MasterChef has been intense this season, with some incredibly talented chefs laying it out on the line every time. I really hate how everyone seems to think that Monti is a fluke, when she is actually really talented. Monti has been proving every week that she isn’t just a recipe memorizer, and I want her to embrace her skills and win to prove them all wrong. Last week, I really enjoyed watching the fish challenge because I actually have cooked almost every single one of those fish. It’s amazing how one ingredient can trip so many people up.

On tonight’s episode, “Top 8 Compete,” the judges put on their cowboy boots and take the Top 8 finalists to a Southern California rodeo, where they will work in teams to prepare, cook, and serve a hearty steak meal for 101 hungry cowboys. The winning team advances to the next round of competition, while the other amateur cooks must hop back in the saddle and compete in a heated pressure test. With elimination at stake and only twenty minutes to prepare six eggs in four different ways, the intensity reaches a boiling point.

To see who manages to survive the pressure, tune in to FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of MasterChef @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, The Bachelorette, Perception, Teen Wolf, and Eureka.
