If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/8/12

Two good things about the election being over: no more of those awful political ads, and loads of new TV episodes! Thursdays appear to be back to their old DVR-overwhelming ways, so we’ve got some suggestions to help you decide what to watch tonight.

Last Resort is getting really good! Last week was easily my favorite episode of the series so far. Secretary of Defense Curry arrived on the island, along with Grace’s father, to negotiate with Chaplin and Kendal. Meanwhile, part of the sonar ray line surrounding the island was down, leaving the sub vulnerable. So Grace took command of the Colorado and a small team to go and replace the dead battery. While underwater, the government took advantage of the compromised defense to try to find and attack the Colorado, but Grace proved to be an effective leader and managed to out maneuver the would-be attackers. Also, back in the US, we learned that Christine knows she is being played to try to turn on her husband and is using this to her advantage.

While I found Prosser’s line of “Ten Hut, Officer On Deck!” so cheesy, it was great to see this character finally have some respect for Grace! Last Resort just keeps getting better each week as the drama, intrigue, and action keep getting amped up! I hope folks will tune in and give the show a chance!

On tonight’s episode, “Another Fine Navy Day,” mysterious assailants attack the crew, putting Chaplin and Kendal on the defensive.

See who the attackers are tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Last Resort @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Glee, The League, Sweet Genius, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

Burn Notice is back, and I’m fully back on the “Burn train” after missing a good number of episodes while Fiona was in prison. (I never claimed to not be a fickle TV viewer. 😉 ) I started watching just in time again last season to see Michael’s brother Nate get killed, Fiona get released from prison, and the team to work to figure out who the shooter was that killed Nate & Anson. When they finally got confirmation on the killer being Tyler Grey, they tracked him to Panama. Just when Michael had him cornered, Grey told him that Card, Michael’s CIA contact/handler, was the one behind it all and that he was setting up both Michael and Grey to be killed. Michael wasn’t sure whether or not to believe him until after contacting Card and being told to stay where he was and a team would come to him, after they left the building, a plane rocketed by and dropped a bomb on the building. When they saw Michael & team (including Grey) leaving the scene unharmed, the plane circled around and began catching up to them. The guy that Card had sent with them told them to get out and he continued on so the plane would catch up with him alone—and it worked. He and the car were hit and exploded, while Michael, Grey, Fiona, Sam, and Jesse were unharmed.

So where does that leave them? Trapped in Panama with the man who killed Nate, no way to get home, and hiding from the major bad guy at the CIA. I’ve seen tonight’s 2-hour fall premiere, and it’s just as action-packed and exciting as the last new episode in August—and Maggie, still grieving over the loss of her younger son, was heartbreaking this episode yet again. Check out the Q&A that Jeffrey Donovan (who plays Michael Weston) did with the press a couple of days ago: Jeffrey Donovan interview.

Don’t miss the 2-hour fall premiere tonight on USA at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Burn Notice @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, Beauty and the Beast, Person of Interest, & Elementary.

Grey’s Anatomy continues to play my heart like a violin. Every single episode this season has made my eyes water and my heart ache—I miss Lexie and Mark. When will things start to look up? When will Arizona stop being so bitter and Callie stop feeling so guilty? Last week, we saw a little bit of growth from everyone, and I really do like Avery and April together. The thing is, I just want more…more happy, I suppose.

On tonight’s episode, “Beautiful Doom,” Meredith and Cristina rely on each other as they face more responsibilities at their respective hospitals and cope with life after the plane crash; Cristina assists Dr. Thomas with a challenging heart surgery.

To see if being each other’s person will get them through, tune into ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grey’s Anatomy @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Elementary, Glee, The Voice, The X Factor, Scandal, Last Resort, The Vampire Diaries, The Big Bang Theory, and Person of Interest.

I’m so impressed with the writers of The Vampire Diaries, how they can keep up the pacing of this show and come up with several bombshells every single episode. Last week Elena, learned how to feed, but with Damon, while Stefan and Klaus learned about a “cure,” (I’m sceptical) and we got a lot of information about The Five. And that gruesome ending was all kinds of wrong while also showing the tie between the hunter, Connor, and Professor Shane. Are you keeping up?

On tonight’s episode, “The Killer,” Stefan and Klaus form an alliance to contain the danger that Connor unleashed on the town, but when Connor takes Jeremy, Matt, and April hostage, Stefan and Damon disagree about the best course of action, and Elena is caught between them. Things turn violent when Klaus sends in one of his hybrids.

Find out if everyone makes it out safely on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Vampire Diaries @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, The Voice, The X Factor, Two and a Half Men, Glee, Project Runway, and Parks and Recreation.
