If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/2/12

How was everyone’s Saturday? I had a pretty good day. Caught up on some sleep while my husband & son went to the movies in the morning, then played cards with my husband in the afternoon & again after dinner. I love long weekends! Especially because that means the weekend doesn’t end today. So check out what we think you should be watching tonight…and since you can stay up a little late, enjoy it all! (By the way, I’ve seen the season premiere of Castle, and there’s just one word for it: BRILLIANT. That is all.)

Last week’s Leverage spent about half the time as a flashback, much like the episode featuring Hardison and Parker as characters other than themselves & Van Gogh’s painting. Last week had to do with the famous D. B. Cooper hijacking case. McSweeten, the real FBI agent the team encountered in season 1 and a few times since, needed help to solve the one case his father, a former FBI agent, never could. Nate & Sophie played McSweeten’s parents, Parker played the stewardess in the plane that Cooper gave the hijacking note to & Eliot played the stewardess’s husband who became McSweeten Sr’s partner – and that’s who they determined was the hijacker. It was an fun episode, although I didn’t like it as much as I liked the Van Gogh ep simply because of the parallel to the Hardison/Parker relationship. And once again, I’m curious as to Nate’s (& Hardison’s) secret. Gah.

On tonight’s episode, “The Real Fake Car Job,” the crew decides to forge a story about an incredibly rare care in order to convince a Wall Street fraud to put an end to the loophole that is keeping him from being prosecuted by the courts for the crimes he has committed.

See the drama tonight on TNT at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Leverage @ Clicker.

Tonight, for all intents and purposes, is the season finale of Breaking Bad (the remaining 10 episodes of season 5 won’t air until next summer). Last week, Walt refused to sell his Methylamine to Declan but offered him Mike’s share of the business as their distributer. He then revealed himself as Gus Fring’s killer and channeled his inner Destiny’s Child by unrelenting demanding that Declan “Say my name,” until he he got the “Heisenberg” response he was looking for. Meanwhile, the FBI turned the lawyer Mike was using distribute the hazard pay cash via safety deposit boxes. Walt discovered this while removing his bugs from Hank’s office and called Mike to warn him to run. Walt delivered Mike his duffel bag of cash and passports, but things went awry when Mike insisted this situation was all Walt’s fault. Walt snapped and killed Mike when he wouldn’t reveal the names of the hazard pay recipients.

I can’t believe Mike is gone—he was one of my favorite characters! What will Jesse do when he finds out? Or maybe will Walt just let him think that Mike successfully fled? Is Jesse going to continue to have a role in the business now that Walt is training Todd to cook? What kind of cliffhanger are they going to leave us with tonight to agonize over for the next year? Maybe Walt Jr. or Hank will finally find out about Walt’s business. Or maybe Jesse’s or Walt’s will life hang in the balance. I can’t wait for tonight’s episode—this has been a great season!

In tonight’s episode, “Gliding Over All,” loose ends are tied up while Walt contemplates a dangerous move.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Great Food Truck Race, Leverage, Hell on Wheels, Copper, and Weeds.
