If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/24/12

It’s been a long, crazy week so far here in my house. And then last night, TV was just as crazy as my life’s been. After a few slow nights, the busy night seemed even busier than normal. Tonight is fairly busy, too, although not quite as busy as last night. We’re here to lead you in the right direction as to what to watch, so check out our recommendations below. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

I love this season of Law & Order: SVU, and tonight is a huge episode for the show—any show for that matter. Tonight is the 300th episode! After the dramatic beginning to the season, I hope this one lives up to what a 300th episode should be. It’s good to have Cragen back, but I hope he settles back in well. He seemed a bit shaky still last week.

On tonight’s episode, “Manhattan Vigil,” a young boy from Morningside Heights is kidnapped while in the care of his father, and the investigation reminds Captain Cragen, Sergeant Munch, and Detective Benson of an unsolved kidnapping that occurred in the same neighborhood thirteen years ago. While the entire squad races against the clock to find the missing boy, Benson vows to learn from past mistakes to set both cases right. Tom Sizemore, Hamish Linklater, Mili Avital, Alex Karpovsky, and Jenna Wolfe guest star.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Animal Practice, Arrow, Guys with Kids, The Neighbors, Criminal Minds, Modern Family, Cajun Pawn Stars, Chicago Fire, CSI, & Restaurant Stakeout.

I have a soft spot for The Middle because week after week, the Heck family does one of two things—it either makes me feel better about my own life or makes me feel like I’m not alone in the world of insane parenting. Either way, I’m a happy girl. What can I say except that dysfunction loves to watch dysfunction? When Frankie lost her job at the beginning of the season, I thought that was a very realistic story line, considering the current state of the economy, but when put with a Heck twist, it almost doesn’t seem so bad? (Hey—I said almost.)

On tonight’s episode, “Halloween III: The Driving,” as Halloween approaches, the Hecks get quite the scare when Sue receives her learner’s permit, and it’s time for Frankie and Mike to teach her how to drive. Meanwhile. Axl looks forward to voting in his first election, and Brick undergoes an unexpected transformation when he eats too much Halloween candy.

To see how Sue does driving (remember, it’s Sue!), tune in to ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Middle @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Criminal Minds, CSI, Suburgatory, Arrow, Guys with Kids, Supernatural, Modern Family, Survivor, and Chicago Fire.

Kyle’s Choice

It’s an all new Comedy Wednesday lineup on ABC, and that means a new episode of Modern Family! Last week, Luke discovered he had a knack for magic but upset Phil when he said he didn’t find any enjoyment in it. Cam became the music teacher at Luke and Manny’s school but didn’t seem to win over the students or the other teachers. Gloria kept the whole house up with her pregnancy snoring. And Mitchell had trouble managing stay-at-home dad duties with Lily and sought Claire’s help.

I always enjoy Halloween-themed episodes—the characters always seem to come up with the most creative and unique costumes. It looks like tonight’s entire ABC comedy lineup is going to be spook-tacular. In the past, we’ve seen that Halloween is the holiday that Claire loves the most and always goes overboard with. So I can’t wait to see how she and the rest of the Dunphy-Pritchett clan celebrate the holiday this year!

In tonight’s episode, “Open House of Horrors,” when the Dunphys’ neighbors find Claire’s annual Halloween extravaganza inappropriate, Phil suggests having an open house for the holiday. Meanwhile, Mitchell and Cameron host a costume party but must also field questions from Lily about her birth mom; and Gloria’s pregnancy intensifies her emotions.

See what costumes & fun times the group can come up with tonight on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Modern Family @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, The Neighbors, Suburgatory, Nashville, Chicago Fire, Guys with Kids, Arrow, Supernatural, American Horror Story: Asylum, and Life After Top Chef.

JJ’s Choice

Darn it, I wasn’t planning on starting with Arrow, but I did. And I haven’t regretted it. The first two episodes have been very cool. Oliver is a lot different from the Green Arrow we saw during Smallville, and overall, the show feels darker. Seeing Oliver finding his way back in Starling City with all the changes he missed is done very nicely, and the flashbacks to his time on the island are very interesting. And last week, we learned that Oliver’s mother was responsible for sabotaging the boat—an interesting fact indeed.

On tonight’s episode, “Lone Gunmen,” Oliver learns about Deadshot, a gunman, when he kills one of his targets. When Oliver learns Deadshot is taking out businessmen who are scheduled to bid at an auction that Walter is attending as well, he enlists Detective Lance’s help.

Find out if Oliver succeeds on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Arrow @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Modern Family, Suburgatory, and The Challenge.
