If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/11/12

Ahh, the start of a new week. We’re *thisclose* to the Thanksgiving holiday in the US. Do you have your plans ironed out yet? We decided to invite my mom up to Kansas, so I started planning out the meal today. We’re doing a fresh turkey from the butcher this year for the first time instead of a frozen one from the grocery store. Exciting stuff! To help ease the holiday planning stress, there’s lots of great TV on, so check out what we are recommending tonight.

I loved last week’s premiere of The Next Iron Chef. I was unhappy to see Spike Mendelsohn in the bottom two, but I was very glad to see him advance against Tim Love…who I found to be kind of an ass at times. He was my least favorite competitor, so having him gone isn’t a hardship for me. The best part about the episode was seeing the reactions of the chefs when they were told what they would be cooking at the beginning. Poor Eric Greenspan got grasshoppers again, but this time, instead of them sending him home, they sent him straight to the top. That was fun. 🙂 I’m looking forward to seeing what the chefs have to go through on tonight’s episode!

On tonight’s episode, “Innovation,” the chefs create an innovative take on international classics.

See what the chefs dish up tonight on Food Network 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Next Iron Chef @ Clicker.

Tonight, Family Guy airs its 200th episode! Who could have imagined the show would ever last this long, especially after it was canceled the first time?! Back before Netflix became the savior people looked to to resurrect their favorite shows, Family Guy made the unprecedented return to the air after being cancelled for more than 3 years! It had only aired fifty episodes across three seasons before FOX pulled the plug. However, huge DVD sales and Adult Swim syndication numbers caused them to rethink this move. Now, 150 episodes later, Family Guy is now in its eleventh season and is just as hilarious as its always been! I have already seen tonight’s 200th episode and really enjoyed it. Long-time fans should be thrilled with tonight’s episode, as it makes a lot of callbacks to previous episodes. I’m looking forward to checking out tonight’s Family Guy retrospective special that airs in the second half of tonight’s hour-long 200th episode celebration.

In tonight’s 200th episode, “Yug Ylimaf,” Brian accidentally causes Stewie’s time machine to run in reverse. To keep it from going all the way back to before Stewie was born, the two of them need to get it to progress forward in time.
The episode is followed by “200 Episodes Later,” a retrospective of memorable moments marking the show’s 200th episode. Includes interviews with creator Seth MacFarlane and voice talents Mila Kunis, Seth Green, and Alex Borstein, and footage of the cast and crew’s celebration.

Celebrate 200 strong tonight with a 1-hour episode on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Family Guy @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Good Wife, The Mentalist, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, 666 Park Avenue, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, The Walking Dead, Dexter, and Homeland.

Oh my Lord, that episode of The Walking Dead last week was so emotional. I had been texted about the episode before I got the change to see it, but I somehow managed to stay spoiler-free. With Lori going into labor, it was clear what was going to happen, but having Carl there and actually doing the deed was all kinds of cruel and awful and emotional. Having the walkers overrun the prison was exciting and created some excitement that kept the pace of the whole episode up (unlike some episodes, which tend to get a little bit boring in the middle).

On tonight’s episode, “Say the Word,” Rick struggles to cope with yet another loss to the group while under his leadership; The Governor attempts to provide a lighthearted festivity for the people of Woodbury, but Michonne becomes suspicious of his strange choice of theme for the event.

See how everyone deals with the aftermath of last week’s emotional episode tonight on AMC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Walking Dead @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Once Upon a Time and Revenge.
