If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/8/12

Back to work today for most people. Did you have a good weekend? I had a decent one. Played a lot of cards with the family, including teaching my kiddo how to play Spades. So I’m sad the weekend’s over, but I’m looking forward to all the fantastic new TV tonight. Let’s see what we think you should be watching tonight!

I am LOVING this season of Castle. Last week really gave our favorite new couple their first test, one which Castle kind of failed at. LOL He couldn’t very well turn the reporter down on live television, but he could have accepted and then called to cancel. When he made the bad choice to keep the date, it allowed Beckett to walk in on the hot reporter in her bikini straddling Castle on his couch. Granted, he was trying to fight her off, but still. It bothered Beckett, and Castle realized just how much when she said she needed some time alone. I’m sure they’ll be fine, and while it was nice to see that everything isn’t always perfect, I don’t want them on the outs for long! The case itself was kind of boring, actually. There was some great parts, such as Ryan and Espisito getting black eyes and then making up (in the way only guys can. “Dude, we’re cool. Let’s get a beer.” LOL), but I hope I like the case better this week.

On tonight’s episode, “Secret’s Safe with Me,” when a young woman is mysteriously murdered, Beckett and Castle discover her death may be linked to a repossessed storage unit up for auction. Was the unit connected to her death? Was something inside it worth killing for? The investigation leads Castle and Beckett to colorful Storage Wars-like treasure seekers and Manhattan socialites as they uncover the shocking truth.

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

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Revolution, Bones, The Mob Doctor, $24 in 24, Dancing with the Stars, Partners, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, Hawaii Five-0, & Mike & Molly.

2 Broke Girls is one of those comedies that is so wrong, it’s right—the offside humor is beyond entertaining. I was thoroughly excited for the return of this hilarious show, and its premiere last week definitely delivered. We got to see Caroline’s dad and watch Max fall under the Channing charm he has, convincing her to get Caroline to attend the estate auction of their former residence. Caroline was so awesome when she set the auction book on fire, and I enjoyed seeing that violent side of her because it was such a change of roles.

On tonight’s episode, “And the Hold-Up,” when the diner is robbed, everyone sees a surprising new side of Han.

To see how the crew survives the hold-up, tune in to CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of 2 Broke Girls @ Clicker.

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

It seems like every channel created some kind of Titanic series or special to “celebrate” the 100th anniversary of the disaster. Tonight, Encore kicks off its 12-part costume drama, Titanic: Blood and Steel.

We’ve seen a love story in James Cameron’s film, and then this year’s UK series written by Downton Abbey scribe Julian Fellowes also concentrated on the passengers. This miniseries takes a different approach by centering the story around those who financed and physically built the luxury ocean liner. The series stars some recognizable TV veterans, such as Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl), Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones), Neve Campbell (Scream, Party of Five), Chris Noth (Sex and the City, The Good Wife), and Derek Jacobi. I’m looking forward to checking out this new take on a century-old ship’s demise.

In tonight’s first episode, “A City Divided New,” a metallurgist checks out the safety of the steel being used by the workers in the Belfast shipyard where the ship is being built. Then in “Stained Steel,” Mark’s detection of weakness in the steel puts him at odds with the chief designer; and Sofia wants nothing to do with her father’s apprentice. Later, Mark encounters his father in a cemetery.

See the first two parts of ten tonight on Encore at 8/7c & 8:49/7:49c.

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Castle, The Voice, Revolution, Bones, The Mob Doctor, Switched at Birth, $24 in 24, Major Crimes, and The Inbetweeners.

Tonight marks the return of Gossip Girl to The CW for a final and shortened season. This show, to me, has been really up and down, but I’m sticking with it till the end to see how it all plays out. Last season ended with Serena doing drugs (probably), every single relationship ending, B choosing a side (but it’s unsure who), and Mr. Bass himself returning to shake things up.

On tonight’s episode, “Gone Maybe Gone,” Serena has gone missing over the summer, Chuck and Blair make a promise to each other which leaves them apart, and Dan is writing a tell-all book together with Georgina.

Find out how it plays out tonight on The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Gossip Girl @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching 90210, Alphas, The Voice, Partners, 2 Broke Girl, Mike & Molly, and Castle.
