If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/27/12

I swear, I have no idea where the weekend went! It honestly feels like it was only 24 hours long. That kind of sucks when Monday rolls around. Luckily, there’s some great TV on tonight to look forward to, so check out what we think you should be watching. 🙂

I was totally skeptical about this season of Warehouse 13 because of how last season ended. Then when I spoke to star Eddie McClintock right before the season started, he soothed some of my fears, saying that yes, there would be fall-out, but it was still going to be the show we all know and love. I’m so glad that he was right. We still get the stuff regarding Steve, Claudia, Artie’s use of the astrolabe, etc. But even with that, the Warehouse gang is still solving cases and being outrageously funny. While I loved all the Pete comedy last week, I also loved that Artie now knows about the connection between Steve & Claudia, and he gave Steve some encouraging words about separating him from the metronome. I’m very hopeful about that, because I adore Steve. My other favorite part was Mrs. Frederic and Claudia spending time together, watching an artifact being born while learning more about Mrs. Frederic and what Claudia’s future could hold as the Warehouse caretaker. It was a great episode, and I’m excited to see this week’s.

On tonight’s episode, “Fractures,” Lindsey Wagner guest stars as the theft of Lewis Carroll’s mirror interferes with Artie’s plans for a date.

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

You would think that considering how often Gordon Ramsay has been on our televisions, we’d be tired of him—but you’d be wrong! I have been loving Hotel Hell and the extremes that have been shown. Watching Ramsay tackle the hotel world has been so rewarding and educational. He really does have a good outlook on things. I’m amazed at some things I’ve seen, and it’s also made me appreciate a good hotel more. What was with that creepy mannequin in the window of the hotel last week? Super odd.

On tonight’s episode, “Keating Hotel,” a boutique hotel in San Diego has problems with its decor, room and laundry service, and the in-house restaurant. The owner’s managerial style also comes under fire.

To see if Chef Ramsay can perform yet another miracle, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hotel Hell @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen and Grimm.

I’ve been really enjoying TNT’s new Major Crimes series (aka The Closer without Kyra). I’ve found the cases of the week interesting, and I haven’t really missed Brenda all that much—there’s still plenty of drama in the workplace without her. Last week, Provenza’s resentment of Raydor becoming chief continued to grow. He also didn’t trust Sykes, saying that she didn’t recognize his authority and always checked Raydor’s opinion before doing anything. Meanwhile, Rusty was upset that Raydor wasn’t looking for his mother and even tried to get her home disqualified by the social worker.

Sykes always seems to be doing the wrong thing. I can’t figure out if she is just incompetent, too eager, or has some kind of manipulative plan. I also can’t figure out why Rusty is so adamant about ditching Raydor. I mean, rather than pulling tricks on the street corner, he is getting clothed and fed and has a nice place to sleep! Also, why hasn’t the guy who keeps getting stuck babysitting Rusty at the office complained that that’s not part of his job?! It seems to me they could put Rusty to work on a computer somewhere. After all, aren’t all kids good with computers?!

In tonight’s episode, “Medical Causes,” clues and facts become hazy when the crew investigates a deadly car accident at a nightclub. Meanwhile, harsh truths surface when Raydor tries to locate Rusty’s mother.

See the drama tonight on TNT at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Major Crimes @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm, Hotel Hell, Hell’s Kitchen, Perception, Alphas, Warehouse 13, and The Inbetweeners.

    I have been a huge fan of Warehouse 13 since it began and this season is, in my opinion, the best so far! I loved this episode from Monday and if they had more episodes like this, bringing back old artifacts, I would thoroughly enjoy them. I don’t get to watch the episodes live this year because I’m working late at Dish on Mondays. It has been a great season so far, which is why I’m recording every episode to my Hopper to re-watch them again after the season airs. I can’t wait for the next episode, let alone the rest of the season!
