If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/5/12

Tonight is a very busy night of TV, especially since last week’s episodes on CBS were pre-empted because of Sandy, so they are airing tonight instead. And FOX is back after the baseball hiatus, which just leads to a pretty fun night for relaxing in front of the television, curling up under a blanket, and just enjoying all the great new episodes. Check out what we think you should be watching tonight—and we’re pretty darn smart, so take our advice, wouldja? 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

I was lucky enough to see tonight’s episode of Bones. It’s been a month since the last new episode because of the break for baseball. I’m so thrilled it’s back. In the last new ep, Sweets and Daisy went from moving in together to breaking up completely. Even though it was his choice, it clearly threw Sweets for a loop. Meanwhile, Booth and Bones were still adjusting to being a family with Christine after Bones took off with her at the end of last season. They’ve gotten past most of it, but there are bound to be lingering issues. They are working it out, though, and we’re getting great new episodes with the normal murders and cases that we love.

Hart Hanson & Stephen Nathan recently spoke to the press about the rest of the season. You can check out all the fun Q&A here: Hart Hanson & Stephen Nathan Interview.

On tonight’s episode, “The Method in the Madness,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of a woman whose body was found mutilated and discarded in a city garbage can. Meanwhile, Booth invites Sweets to stay with Brennan and him while Sweets searches for a new apartment. Joel David Moore, Leif Gantvoort, Galadriel Stineman, James Patrick Stuart (Supernatural, 90210, CSI), Gualtiero Negrini, Brandon Fobbs, Abraham Benrubi (ER, Men in Trees), & Kathryn Wahl guest star.

Welcome back the Jeffersonian team tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

Monday nights wouldn’t be as fabulous in my house if it wasn’t for Hawaii Five-0 and the deliciousness that is Alex O’Loughlin. This show manages to keep us interested, even though we are still on the Wo Fat story line (hint: enough already!). I have enjoyed the addition of seeing McGarrett’s mother. It’s given us another twist to follow while still giving us even more comedic banter. That is one thing that is always done really well on this show: making us laugh even at the very tense times—a hard quality to find in a crime drama.

On tonight’s episode, “Mahoi,” the team investigates a grisly murder, and evidence suggests the killer is about to strike again.

To see if the Five-0 team can save the day again, tune into CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Voice, Bones, The Mob Doctor, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, and American Pickers.

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, the first season of MTV’s US version of The Inbetweeners comes to a close. In last week’s episode, Simon got his car extra dirty in preparation for the bikini car wash being run by Carly and her friends. At the car wash, Samantha told Will that she wouldn’t have sex with him while he’s still a virgin. So the guys headed to the spa (thanks to a free gift certificate)—and Jay hunted for the spa whore to help Will with his problem. Meanwhile, Simon accidentally ruined Carly’s surprise.

It seems like nothing ever works out for these guys, so here’s hoping that one of them catches a break in tonight’s season finale! Overall, I think the US version has done a good job in this first season of balancing adapted UK scripts and plots and coming up with new ideas of its own. I really enjoyed the original series, and I was afraid I was not going to like these new versions of the characters—but I was proven wrong.

In tonight’s episode, “The Dance,” Will serves as chairman of the homecoming dance; Jay attempts to win Brie back.

See if it works out for everyone 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, Revolution, Bones, and The Mob Doctor.

JJ’s Choice

As far as ratings go, Partners hasn’t been doing great. But I love how hysterical the show can be—especially any scene with Louis (Michael Uri). And two gay guys with a dog named Elphaba is never not funny. Over the last few weeks, we have seen the relationship between Joe and Ali grow while Louis is struggling with the change in friendship with Joe.

On tonight’s episode, “2 Broke Guys,” Joe and Louis are forced to ask for their old jobs back because of financial problems while Joe questions Ali’s overly friendly kiss with Wyatt.

See if Joe and Louis succeed on CBS at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Partners @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching 90210, The Voice, 2 Broke Girls, Gossip Girl, Mike & Molly, and Castle.

Jenny’s Choice #2

I also got a chance to watch tonight’s episode of Castle. Following along with some fantastic episodes this season, tonight’s is great. Even with a murder, it was a funny, funny ep. One of the things the writers on here do well is combine the drama with the humor, and this one has it in spades. I really loved it. It’s a nice change from last week, when Castle was the main suspect for most of the episode of the woman who was barb-wired to her ceiling. Last episode, there was tension among the entire team, even though no one really believed Castle had done it (even Gates, thank goodness), but there was still some good Castle/Beckett moments. This week includes a handful of those, as well. There’s some good stuff with Alexis, as well, although no Martha this week—and while I missed her, the rest of the episode makes up for it!

On tonight’s episode, “The Final Frontier,” when a body is found at a sci-fi convention, Castle and Beckett are warped into the heart of fandom—a world of egotistic celebrities, diehard costumed fans and enough drama for two galaxies. Armin Shimerman (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), Ed Quinn (Eureka), Christina Moore (True Blood), Erin Way (Alphas), and Chris McKenna (One Life to Live) guest star in this episode, which is directed by Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation)—who also has a short guest spot. 😉

Don’t miss this tribute to fans tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

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