If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/6/12

I can’t believe I’m almost done with my Christmas shopping. I just have one more gift to buy. I’m never done this early! Speaking of being done, it seems like each night, more and more shows are ending for the fall, and tonight, that includes most of Thursday’s NBC comedies. I’ll be sad to see tonight’s final Christmas episode of The Office, as those are always a lot of fun. However, since I suggested The Office last week, I’ve got a different show for you this week, so read on to find out all of the shows we’re recommending you check out tonight.

Tonight, FX is giving us a double-header of new episodes of The League. Last week, Pete was buying some new running shoes when a guy in a wheelchair rolled into the shop and purchased the last pair. Later, when Pete saw the same man on an exam bed in Andre’s office, he stole the shoes right off his feet, saying that he didn’t need the advanced treads since he didn’t walk. Meanwhile, Taco trained a dog to detect sex—which led to an awkward encounter with a repairman who spent a little too long in the bathroom after accidentally getting a glimpse of Jenny naked. And Jenny and Kevin got a player piano for their daughter, but soon realized it had come with some really racist old music, which Ellie quickly learned and sang aloud.

The League is so much fun—though, overall, I think it has been a little bit on the raunchier side this season. I like that while the premise of the series centers around a fantasy football league, you certainly don’t need to know anything about the sport to enjoy the humor. I like the friendship and competition between these guys that always leads to the craziest situations.

On tonight’s first episode, “The Anchor Baby,” Ruxin fears that Sofia has lost interest in their marriage. Meanwhile, Jenny makes a dirty trade. Then, in “Bro-lo El Cordero,” Kevin has a colonoscopy; Pete suspects that his grandpa (Robert Wagner) is adulterous; and the guys ask Rafi to settle a dispute for them.

See the double episodes tonight on FX at 10:30/9:30c & 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of The League @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Last Resort, Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, Up All Night, Parks and Recreation, Glee, Sweet Genius, Reality Show, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

Jenny’s Choice

Poor Michael and the gang can’t catch a break on Burn Notice. Last week, they were just about to head out on a boat to escape the country, after Sam’s girlfriend brought them some extra stuff they needed, but the CIA was onto their whereabouts and nearly caught them. Sam had to say goodbye to his crying woman while they took her car to bust through the CIA’s closing barricade (barely scraping through) and escaping. To get out of the country, Sam called on an old contact, who put them in touch with the best smuggler in Miami. But that guy ended up being in hiding because a former Syrian intelligence officer and current bad guy was after him. Michael & team worked to protect this guy by siccing the police on the Syrian, and that worked, but it also cost the smuggler some of his stock, which means Michael et al need to come up with some money to help pay for their way out. And we left off with Sam pissed off at Michael for putting them in this position by killing Card and making it so he has to leave his woman. Of course, then we have poor Maddie, who is still mourning Nate’s death. She is under CIA surveillance, but she’s working to help Michael and crew. It’s a lot of craziness. I have no idea how they are going to get out of this one—but then again, I’ve not been sure how they would get out of all the previous situations, either, and they have, so…

On tonight’s episode, “Best Laid Plans,” Michael brokers a deal selling an expensive piece of technology to a ruthless thief. But things become complicated when Sam is dragged in as part of a high stakes robbery.

Don’t miss the drama & excitement tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Burn Notice @ Clicker.

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