If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/30/12

It’s the start of another week, and a slow week it’s going to be due to the 2012 Summer Olympics—Go Canada! 😉 Let’s see what’s on tonight for you to watch.

It’s been a rollercoaster ride on Bunheads so far, but an enjoyable one. Who doesn’t love a little sarcasm on their Monday night? I have been really enjoying this show, even though there are times the story line seems discombobulated (hey, it’s a word in my vocabulary). 🙂 Last episode, we celebrated Michelle’s birthday with her friend, Talia, from Las Vegas—but for some odd reason, Truly tagged along. Michelle learned that she loved teaching, giving her a reason to stay in the sleepy town of Paradise.

On tonight’s episode, “What’s Your Damage Heather?” when the dance studio springs a leak, Michelle lets the girls change for class in her house. But when one of them lies about stealing from her, Michelle puts her foot down. Meanwhile, the girls tease Ginny about dating the same boy since second grade.

To see how Michelle handles the students, tune in to ABC Family at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bunheads @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll be watching/DVRing 2012 Olympics, Bachelor Pad, and Perception.

I’m really digging Perception so far. It’s a great fit on TNT. Eric McCormack is fantastic as the brilliant yet ecceentric Daniel Pierce—who also happens to suffer from paranoid schizophrenia. He lives inside his own head a lot, seeing people that aren’t there…and that is sometimes a big help in solving the cases he assists in with FBI Agent Kate Moretti, played by the adorable Rachael Leigh Cook. Together, they make a great team. Last week, they had to deal with Kate’s dad, who is a retired police detective. But my favorite parts of the episode, I think, was the stuff between Kate and Daniel’s assistant, Max Lewicki. He wanted her to quit interrupting Daniel’s routine, but at the end, he realized she helped him stay out of his head as much as the puzzle books Lewicki himself always bring him. My other favorite part was at the end, when Daniel gave the previous victim of the killer a pair of concert tickets. Because of her head injury, she wouldn’t remember getting them, so it was something her mother could give her over and over and make her happy every time. It was really heartwarming.

On tonight’s episode, “Cipher,” Pierce tries to crack a coded message left in a newspaper by someone who may be connected to a murder. But time isn’t on his side as another victim’s life could be in danger. Neal McDonough and Cary Elwes guest star.

See if you can crack the code tonight on TNT at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Perception @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2012 Olympics, Warehouse 13, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Whoa, what a dark premiere last week to start off the extra-long fourth season of Warehouse 13! In an Indiana Jones-like adventure, the gang tried to find a way to reverse the last 24 hours—to restore the Warehouse, bring back HG and Mrs. Frederic, and bring back hope to Earth. In the process, Claudia got stuck in a collapsed tunnel, and Pete was killed. But Artie was able to save the day at the last second and turn back time. However, just before doing so, he received a warning from Brother Adrian that he would have to live with some great evil for the rest of his days, and that if he told anyone what happened, they would be in grave danger.

I thought it was great to see Pete get a dramatic death scene. It’s not often that the main character gets such a scene in the season premiere—especially if they are going to continue to be on the show! I can’t wait to find out what these consequences are that Artie must live with and what Brother Adrian’s master plan is. Also, from the previews, it looks like Claudia is becoming a bit more evil—will she be consumed by this quest to resurrect Jinx? I really hope we do get that character back—he was a lot of fun! It looks like it’s going to be an exciting season!

Last week, I got to speak with Brent Spiner (Data! Yay!) about his role as Brother Adiran, and at Comic-Con, Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, and Jack Kenny stopped by my press table. You can find those write-ups and videos on my site.

In tonight’s episode, “An Evil Within,” Pete and Myka investigate when angry mobs hallucinate en masse and attack innocent people. Kate Mulgrew guest stars.

Check it out tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Warehouse 13 @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Glass House, Bunheads, The Closer, Perception, Alphas, and Teen Wolf.
