If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/26/12

You know last Friday, I mentioned that it was getting colder? NOTHING like it is now. What a difference a week makes. Things here have been up and down all week, so I’m looking forward to having some downtime to just relax and chill out while I watch some great TV—and we’re prepared to tell you what we think you should watch, so check out our recommendations for the night. 😉

I was going to do Nikita again (because how freakin adorable was Michael when he shouted that he was going back to get her engagement ring, and then the proposal and Nikita saying what she did? LOVED it. 😀 ), but then I realized the backdoor pilot of the new Mockingbird Lane is airing tonight. I LOVE this idea. The Munsters brought to life again by the mind behind the brilliant show Pushing Daisies and starring Jerry O’Connell (who I love)? Sign me up. Mockingbird Lane is a new reimagined version of the classic 1960s comedy The Munsters, now as a visually spectacular one-hour drama with a darker edge and tone. The cast includes Jerry O’Connell (The Defenders) as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi (Arrested Development) as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard (United States of Tara, The Riches) as Grandpa, Mason Cook (Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D) as Eddie, and Charity Wakefield (The Raven) as Marilyn.

I have no idea when the show will truly premiere, but I hope the pilot lives up to my expectations. Brian Fuller was a genius with Pushing Daisies, so I am truly hoping he brings that magic to this new show.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” sweet little Eddie Munster is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty. Truth is, he’s about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places—as in all over his body—every time the moon is full! Eddie’s got it pretty good, though. His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom Lily, the daughter of Dracula; his dad Herman, who brings new meaning to “Frankenstein”; and Grandpa, who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren’t actually Dracula! Of course, then there’s creepy cousin Marilyn, who’s really the odd one because she’s so completely normal.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Mockingbird Lane @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Nikita, Fringe, CSI: NY, Haven, Grimm, Blue Bloods, & Hunted.

Some say that you can overdose on a good thing, but if it’s Gordon Ramsay we’re talking about, I don’t think that’s possible! Tonight is the season premiere of Kitchen Nightmares, and I couldn’t be happier. Every season, this show steps it up and makes us wonder why we even bother eating in restaurants that aren’t owned by Ramsay himself. I’ve had the chance to see the premiere, and let me just say that cleanliness isn’t high on everyone’s priority list—eww.

On tonight’s episode, “La Galleria 33, Part One,” Ramsay goes to Boston’s La Galleria 33 and tries to help the owners turn their failing business around.

To see if Ramsay can talk sense into the senseless, tune into FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Kitchen Nightmares @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Mockingbird Lane, Grimm, Haven, Shark Tank, CSI: NY, and Blue Bloods.

Tonight, Halloween hits Haven. Last week, Duke was in court for unpaid parking tickets but got off on a technicality. However, the judge threatened to shut down the Grey Gull if he didn’t pay off his $5000 liquor license fee. Outside the courtroom, a mysterious woman in a white gown stabbed the tires on Dukes car and then proceeded to key it with the knife. When Duke ran after her, she disappeared. At the same time, Audrey and Nathan were investigating what appeared to be a female vigilante who was out exacting her own justice on Haven’s criminals. They soon realized that Duke’s mysterious woman in white was the same person they were looking for and that Duke was also a target. At the end of the episode, Audrey received a report from the FBI that matched the bolt-gun killer’s MO. Audrey realized that the killer was not taking taking body parts from his victims as trophies, but to build himself a woman.

I like how Haven mixes humor with the the creepy and frightening—so I’m really looking forward to tonight’s haunted house episode. I wonder if we will get a glimpse of the bolt-gun killer’s Frankenstein-style woman tonight! It should be a spooktacular episode! (I’ve really got to stop using that word!)

In tonight’s episode, “Real Estate,” Audrey, Nathan, and Duke find themselves trapped inside a notorious haunted house on Halloween night.

See how creepy the town’s residents can get tonight on Syfy at 10/9c (but remember to record long because wrestling sometimes runs over!). Learn where to find episodes online of Haven @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching Mockingbird Lane, Grimm, Kitchen Nightmares, and Fringe.

How FOX can order only 13 episodes of a season and not manage to run them uninterrupted, I don’t understand. But hey, beggars can’t be choosers. At least we are getting 13 episodes to wrap up the story, so I shouldn’t complain, right? Two weeks ago, our team met up with some people trying to stay outside of Observer reach, while looking for the next piece in the puzzle to solve the Observer takeover. I was a little worried that this season would become a scavenger hunt after the “please find all the videos” message, but so far, it hasn’t gotten annoying.

On tonight’s episode, “The Bullet That Saved the World,” the team tracks a lead into a hostile and heavily guarded location and find Phillip Broyles, but can he be trusted?

Find out on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Fringe @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching America’s Next Top Model and Haven.
