If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/14/13

Sorry this is late. My kiddo is sick with the flu that’s going around (although this morning, I’m wondering if it’s strep…), so I haven’t been sleeping well…until last night, when I crashed just after midnight and slept until noon… But there’s lots on tonight, so check out what we think you should be watching.

Jenny’s Choice #1

bones114asmallYay, Bones is back! We haven’t had a new episode in almost a month and a half, and tonight, we’re getting two. I’ve seen both episodes, and they are both just as great as you can expect. Over the course of the last couple of episode, Angela has been becoming increasingly dissatisfied with her job—or rather, not the job itself but the fact that she seems to have lost the artist side of herself. That comes to a head tonight and comes with a resolution that I hope will be good for her yet not take her away from the show (if that makes sense!). Sweets is still staying with Booth & Brennen, which makes me laugh, especially because there’s a cute moment for them. The show got picked up for season 9 recently, so YAY!

bones114bsmallOn tonight’s first episode, “The Diamond in the Rough,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of a professional ballroom dancer who was murdered three days before her audition on a popular dancing competition show. In order to solve the case, Brennan and Booth go undercover as dance competitors to see if they can find potential suspects. Mary Murphy, Tyce Diorio, Dmitry Chaplin, Chehon Wespi-Tschopp, & Eliana Girard from So You Think You Can Dance, & Vaitiare Au-Harehoe from Dance Your Ass Off guest star.

Then on the second episode, “The Archaeologist in the Cocoon,” the team investigates the murder of a well-known archeologist with a questionable reputation, who came upon a career-defining discovery right before his death. Amy Yasbeck guest stars.

Don’t miss both fun new episodes tonight on FOX at 8/7c & 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

hawaiifiveo114smallHawaii Five-0 is one of my favorite shows by far—and while yes, it’s true… It’s not just the attractive cast (looking at you, Alex.). It’s also the way they keep us on the edge of our seats. Tonight, they’re going to do that even more because they are allowing the audience to select the ending—live. This has never been done, and I’m excited. First of all, it reminds me of those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, and I think being able to choose the ending of a show is pure awesomeness. (It’s a word in my world. Deal with it.)

On tonight’s ground breaking episode, “Kapu (Forbidden),” the Five-0 team are tasked with having to investigate the mysterious death of an O’ahu State University professor, and look into three suspects with possible motives for murder: his boss, his teaching assistant, and a student busted for cheating.

To be part of the excitement, tune into CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Bones, 2 Broke Girls, Bunheads, and Deception.

continuum114smallTonight, Syfy’s Powerful Mondays return with exciting new seasons of Being Human and Lost Girl, plus the premiere of a new Canadian import, Continuum. In the year 2077, a group of convicted terrorists plans to escape their execution by activating a device that will send them back in time 5 years. However, a malfunction causes the felons to accidentally go back an additional 60 years, to 2012. And they soon discover that they also pulled in an unwelcome extra passenger—law enforcement officer Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols, Criminal Minds). Now, Kiera must track down these terrorists before they can alter the future, while also trying to both learn how the world works in 2012 and find a way to return to her family in 2077.

I’ve seen the first two episodes of Continuum, and I’m already hooked! It’s got a great mix of action, sci-fi, drama, and mystery. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the 10-episode season plays out! The series has already been picked up for a second season in Canada.

On tonight’s premiere, “A Stitch in Time,” eight convicted terrorists escape their planned execution in the year 2077 by traveling back in time to 2012, accidentally bringing officer Kiera Cameron along with them.

See the new science fiction drama tonight on Syfy at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Being Human, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Castle, Bones, The Carrie Diaries, Switched at Birth, and Bunheads.

lostgirl2012smallToday is the third season premiere of Lost Girl, a little gem I started watching during season 2. The season ended with our band of Fae defeating the Garuda, Trick not dying, and Kenzi getting Dyson’s love back from the Norn. And it’s still unclear what will happen with the dark side that has been growing in Bo. From what I’ve read, the third season will continue in this theme and the fact that Bo is still unaligned.

On tonight’s premeire, “Caged Fae,” Bo is sent to jail after going rampaging through the city, but when she gets there, it appears like not everything is what it appears.

Find out what’s really happening on Syfy at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Lost Girl @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching 2 Broke Girls, Bunheads, Mike & Molly, and Castle.

Jenny’s Choice #2

castle114smallLast week’s Castle was great. I called the wife still being alive way before they figured it out. And the whole thing with Castle’s ex-wife and Beckett going from caustic “frenemies” to actual friendly friends was great—and Castle’s reaction was priceless. It even stirred debate between my husband & me about how Castle should have handled it at the beginning and whether or not Beckett’s reaction to Castle getting them a hotel room was the right one. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Under the Influence,” when an up and coming DJ is killed at a pop star’s album release party, Beckett and Castle must dive into the raucous world of New York’s music industry. Then, when the investigation leads to a troubled teenager, Esposito takes the kid under his wing, hoping to put him on the right track before it’s too late. Taylor Cole (The Glades) guest stars as Regina Cane, an aging pop star who has a shadow cast on her album launch party when the DJ is murdered, and Michael Irby (Law Abiding Citizen) guests as Shane Winters, a criminal who may have a history with the DJ.

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 2 Broke Girls, The Bachelor, Mike & Molly, Continuum, How I Met Your Mother, Next Great Baker, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, Hawaii Five-0, & Pawn Star$.
