If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/7/13

It’s Monday, which means the start of a new week of work and school, but it also means some great TV, which we’re happy to share with you. So check out what we think you should be watching tonight. 😉

castle17smallI’m SO happy Castle is back. The last episode was the Christmas one, and it was really cute. The case was really good, throwing us off with several suspects before we learned it was his ex-wife that killed him. There were some terrific Caskett moments, including the sweet kiss at the end, as well as the great family stuff with Martha, Alexis, & Castle. I really loved it.

On tonight’s episode, “Significant Others,” when a powerful divorce attorney who only represented women is murdered, Castle and Beckett are confronted with a plethora of angry ex-husbands, any one of whom could be the murderer. Meanwhile, Castle’s ex-wife (Darby Stanchfield, Scandal), Meredith, moves into the loft to take care of Alexis while she recovers from mono, and to make matters worse, Beckett is also forced to move in while her apartment is being fumigated, causing tension, humor, and more than a little awkwardness. Jack Wagner (Melrose Place) guest stars as a pro golfer whose career went down in flames after a nasty divorce, and Nancy Lee Grahn (General Hospital) guests as a wealthy divorcee caught in a “War of the Roses”-like struggle with her ex-husband.

Don’t miss the fun drama tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Bachelor, Next Great Baker, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

bunheadssmallWhen Bunheads first premieredm I was unsure about the premise, but I loved Gilmore Girls, so a show by the same creator was bound to spark my interest—and it did. From the premiere to the fall finale, I was hooked, and I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for tonight’s winter finale. The whole cast is amazing, but I have a special spot for Michelle in my heart because she always makes me laugh. I really hope that this part of the season, we see a bit more stability for the dancers themselves, as well as some relationship closure for Michelle.

On tonight’s premiere, “You Wanna See Something?” Michelle works as a magician’s assistant, and the dance studio is closed. Ginny takes over her mother’s business, Melanie cares for his grandfather, Boo helps out with the younger children, and Sasha returns.

Get yourself hooked on an amazing show when you tune into ABC Family at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bunheads @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Deception and The Mob Doctor.

themobdoctor17smallTonight is the series finale of The Mob Doctor. In Saturday’s penultimate episode, things really heated up. Constantine’s estranged son was in town looking for some money in order to pay off a debt to the Nogales Cartel. Constantine arranged for North Side boss Al Trapani to provide protection for his son in exchange for Grace’s help in diagnosing the source of his girlfriend’s pain—which ended up being colon cancer (so, She was formerly a He). Meanwhile, there was a hit out on Constantine, and at the end of the episode, Constantine and Grace’s mother were gunned down on the front steps of the mother’s home. Grace emerged from the house, screaming while trying to attend to her mother.

Fox had been burning off the episodes twice a week, so it was pretty obvious that tonight would be the series and not just season finale. I like the medical cases on this show and preferred those over the mob storylines—I wish the series has just been a Chicago-based medical drama and had dropped the mob aspect. I liked how at the end of last week’s episode, Grace completely ignored Constantine and ran right for her mother. However, someone like Grace would have dialed 9-1-1 herself instead of just screaming out to no one to call for an ambulance. Even though it looked like neither of them could have survived, my guess is that Constantine somehow pulls through—I just hope we get some kind of proper series conclusion tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “Life and Death,” Grace’s world is falling apart when her family’s in danger and the FBI’s ready to make a move. Meanwhile, Al Trapani increases his involvement in Constantine’s business; and what Franco wanted to remain hidden is no longer a secret.

See if fans are rewarded with a good series end tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Mob Doctor @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Castle, Switched at Birth, and Bunheads.
