If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/1/12

First of all, let’s all take a moment and wish Kyle a very happy belated birthday—he celebrated an “undisclosed” number yesterday and deserves some recognition. Now let’s talk about how insane this new TV season is already shaping up to be, shall we? My DVR is starting to yawn and feel overwhelmed, and we’re just getting started! Tonight, we’re going to be hitting it hard again, so let’s see what we think you should be watching—and as always…we’re right! 😉

Bones has always been one of my favorite shows. Every season, I faithfully tune in despite what relationship drama or story line the writers have cooked up at the time. The thing about Bones is no matter how many times I start to worry about my favorite characters, I’ve learned that if I sit back and trust the brilliant mind of Hart Hanson, he’ll lead me through the doubt and deliver exactly what I didn’t know I wanted for those characters.

In the season premiere, when Brennan and Booth were reunited, my heart was happy, although I could see the foreshadowing of relationship woes brought on by her fleeing with the baby—let’s hope I’m wrong. I am also loving Angela and her strength this season, as well as the fact that Hodgins seems to man up when it comes to the ones he loves—he was fierce.

On tonight’s episode, “The Gunk in the Garage,” an investigation of human remains found in the aftermath of an explosion in a hotel garage hits a snag when the team learn their assumptions about a man’s fate are incorrect. Meanwhile, Sweets gets a temporary partner at the FBI. Danielle Panabaker (Shark) guest stars.

To see how the team handles this intense case, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Revolution, The Voice, Hawaii Five-0, The Mob Doctor, 2 Broke Girls, and Mike & Molly.

Last week’s premiere of Castle was as fantastic the second time for me as it was the first. Castle and Beckett are together—although they are hiding it from their friends, family, & co-workers—Ryan and Esposito are still butting heads after last season’s finale, but they all worked together to find Beckett’s shooter (& ultimately, they didn’t kill him, but he is dead and gone), as well as find the guy behind not only the threats on Beckett, but behind her mother’s murder, too. The big bad turned out to be a Senator who used the money he got from blackmailing the police way back when about the mob kidnappings to fund his campaign. Beckett came to an…understanding, basically threatening and blackmailing him to leave her alone in exchange for not releasing the file she claimed to have (which, of course, was burned to bits when the hired shooter picked it up in the booby-trapped safe and is now gone). That means Beckett’s mother’s murder remains “unsolved” and on the back burner. At the end of the episode, Beckett did a bit of groveling to Gates and got her job back, although she has to serve out the rest of her suspension, just like Esposito.

On tonight’s episode, “Cloudy with a Chance of Murder,” on Beckett’s first day back from her suspension, she and Castle are thrown into the salacious world of local TV news when WHNY’s veteran weather girl is found dead. As if navigating an industry full of backstabbing and ruthless ambition weren’t difficult enough, they have to do it while hiding their new relationship from their coworkers.

Don’t miss all the fun and drama tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, Dancing with the Stars, Bones, Partners, Mike & Molly, 2 Broke Girls, Hawaii Five-0, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, The Mob Doctor, Warehouse 13, & Revolution.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised by MTV’s adaptation of the UK teen comedy The Inbetweeners. While the first three episodes were pretty much complete copies of UK episodes, after that, the US series has really gone off on its own with brand new stories and jokes. This new quartet works great together, and I think they’re a lot of fun. The only one that still gets on my nerves a bit is Jay—but that’s also how the original incarnation of Jay made me feel, as well! 🙂 The plot for tonight’s episode is the same as a past UK episode, but I hope the show continues its trend of moving away from the original scripts and being creative and funny in its own right.

In tonight’s episode, “Crystal Springs,” the boys accompany Jay’s family on a trip to an RV resort.

Laugh along with me tonight on MTV at 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Inbetweeners @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Castle, The Voice, Revolution, Bones, The Mob Doctor, Switched at Birth, Major Crimes, Alphas, and Warehouse 13.

Last week was a spectacular episode of Warehouse 13. Weird things were happening to the families of our agents, and Artie was behaving very erratically. And in the final moments of the episode, we found out Brother Adrian wasn’t real, and Artie had gone crazy and killed Leena.

On tonight’s fall finale, “We All Fall Down,” the teams reels from the loss of one of their own while they try to uncover Artie’s plan.

See if the team can stop Artie before he causes more damage tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Warehouse 13 @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Alphas, The Voice, Partners, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, and Castle.
