If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/31/12

First, we here at TV Is My Pacifier would like to send our thoughts and prayers to all those who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy—we are truly sorry for all you’ve lost. Now onto happier things, such as wishing you all a safe and happy Halloween! (I will take any unwanted peanut butter cups mailed to me… Please!) Finally, the reason you’re all here reading my rambling—our menu for what you should be watching tonight if you’re smart enough to follow our lead. Let’s check it.

Criminal Minds has been throwing us a few curve balls as of late, the latest being Reid being in love with a girl that he’s only spoken to on the phone. I was so interested to learn more about this situation that I almost forgot why we were here to begin with—to solve a case. What a case it was last week, too! A man who was desperately trying to figure out a way to give his wife a new leg started kidnapping people to practice leg transplants—yes, it was as sick as it sounded, and I found myself so creeped out that I was turning away from the screen on many occasions. What an intense episode, but in the end, Reid’s secret lover helped solve the case, but we are still in the dark about her.

On tonight’s episode, “The Good Earth,” when four men from Oregon go missing, the team searches for a common link; JJ is upset when her son doesn’t want to celebrate Halloween.

To see if the team figures it out before the missing count goes up, tune into CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The X Factor, CSI, Chicago Fire, Suburgatory, Survivor, Arrow, Guys with Kids, and Law & Order: SVU.

One of my family’s favorite comedies now is ABC’s The Neighbors. This show had the ability to be completely inane and insane—and sometimes, it is. But it is also hysterically funny and just so cute, it’s impossible not to love. I can’t decide who my favorite character is… I think it fluctuates weekly. Larry Bird is always fantastic, and so is his wife, Jackie Joyner-Kersee. The humans are great, too, and all the kids are fun to watch. Just all around, I love the show. Last week’s “Halloween-ween” episode was hysterical, especially Dick Butkis dressing up as Debbie Weaver. *snort* Why they didn’t air that episode this week…ON HALLOWEEN…I have no idea. heh

On tonight’s episode, “Larry Bird and the Iron Throne,” Jackie Joyner-Kersee tries her best to help as Debbie whips herself into a frenzy planning the perfect birthday for little Abby. Meanwhile, Larry shadows Lenny at work for a day; and a smitten Reggie Jackson tries to find the perfect gift for Amber (even if it isn’t her birthday).

Don’t miss a minute of the funny tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Neighbors @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Arrow, Guys with Kids, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, CSI, Cajun Pawn Stars, & Chicago Fire.

Tonight is the live finale of the third season of Face Off. In last night’s episode, the final spotlight challenge was inspired by Halloween. The final 3 contestants were tasked with creating two original characters—a chaotic daemon and a good witch. The witches had to be based on one of the four elements—Laura chose earth, Nicole chose water, and Derek went with fire. They also each got to choose two of the past contestants to form their team—Nicole chose Roy & Sarah, Derek chose his brother Eric & Jason (not really sure why he wasted his first pick on his brother—it’s not like anyone else would have taken him), and Laura chose Rod & Tommy. The big twist was that their creations needed to take part in a choreographed stunt routine.

Rod was a bit of a slow poke and a hindrance for Laura, and initially, Roy had a chip on his shoulder because Nicole was chosen over him for the final 3—that’s not the kind of person you want working on your team! Roy finally kicked into professional mode and created her this great staff, but Tommy accidentally knocked it off a table, smashing it. The stunt show was insane—the characters were fighting, smashing through walls, riding motorcycles, falling off buildings and more. I don’t really have one contest I’m rooting for—they are all extremely talented—but tonight, we find out who America voted for. If you want to vote, you can still do so at http://syfy.com/faceoff up until 7pm ET tonight.

In tonight’s episode, “Finale,” the season 3 winner will be announced during the finale in Los Angeles. Also: The eliminated artists reunite.

See who goes home a winner and who just goes home tonight on Syfy at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Face Off @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Neighbors, Modern Family, Suburgatory, Nashville, 30 Rock, Guys with Kids, Arrow, Supernatural, and American Horror Story: Asylum.

JJ’s Choice

After a very boring episode (“The Butler’s Escape”), we were treated to the Halloween episode last week, which has been consistently fun—and last week wasn’t an exception. Claire being petitioned by the neighborhood to keep the decorations happy but going outside anyway and “grabbing” some children to give them candy was very funny.

On tonight’s episode, “Yard Sale,” Jay and Gloria hold a yard sale to help Manny and Luke with the school’s fundraiser, Mitch and Cam help Claire assess Alex’s new “boyfriend,” and Manny finds an old trunk with a secret Gloria wants to remain a secret.

Find out if Gloria succeeds on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Modern Family @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Arrow and Suburgatory.
