If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/15/13

I couldn’t believe there was Easter stuff in the stores already right beside the Valentine’s Day stuff… Can we not get a short break before we jump at it again? I’m not ready to shop for another holiday yet—although I do love Mini Eggs. 🙂 While I think about getting some yummy mini eggs, let’s see what you should be watching tonight.

ncis115smallIt’s been a slow season for NCIS—at least in my opinion—but last week’s episode drastically changed that. The death of Ziva’s father was so heartbreaking, especially because it’s so rare to see her display such extreme emotion. Tony and Ziva have been skirting around a relationship for ages, so I’m hopeful that this time of grief will cause her to finally lean on Tony a bit.

On tonight’s episode, “Shiva,” the team searches for answers after a tragedy hits close to home.

To see if the team can bind together during difficult times, tune into CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Hart of Dixie, NCIS: LA, New Girl, The Mindy Project, and Go On.

raisinghope115smallI’m so happy about tonight’s Raising Hope because I love that Jimmy & Sabrina are a couple. The show hasn’t changed for the worse since they did. It’s still the great, funny show it’s been since the beginning. The last episode was great. It was the end of the world, and while others in town were partying it up, Virginia went all crazy with hoarding supplies and trying to get prepared to fight off the aliens and keep her family safe. Of course, nothing happened, so she felt like a fool, but then when their friends needed their help because they had lost everything due to how they’d handled it, she was able to use everything she’d saved to help them. It was a touching moment at the end, just like a lot of the sweet moments among all the comedy we get from that show.

On tonight’s episode, “Lord of the Ring,” Burt tells Jimmy that he needs to buy Sabrina a nice engagement ring, even if she claims she doesn’t need one, so Jimmy starts volunteering for a series of exotic medical experiments to come up with the cash. Meanwhile Virginia has been pawning her engagement ring for years behind Burt’s back to pay for odds and ends. But when Jimmy visits the pawnshop and falls in love with his own mom’s ring, her secret may be out.

See if Virginia can get out of that mess tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Raising Hope @ Clicker.

faceoffsmallTonight, Face Off returns for its fourth season on Syfy. Fourteen new hopeful special effects make-up artists will fight it out to see who is the best. In a change for the fourth season, the judges won’t be passing through the workroom to give notes on the contestants’ initial designs and progress. Instead, the artists will be mentored by Michael Westmore. While this should certainly make things more exciting for the contestants, it should also make the judging more suspenseful. I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere, and it looks like this season, we’ve got another extremely diverse, interesting, and talented group of contestants. I can’t wait to see what these artists come up with—some of this season’s challenges look really great!

On tonight’s 90-minute premiere, “Make It Reign,” the contestants take on their first challenge, which is to create goblin kings. Actor John Rhys-Davies serves as a guest judge.

See who does well and who bombs tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Face Off @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Happy Endings, Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, Go On, The New Normal, Parenthood, Raising Hope, Ben and Kate, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Hart of Dixie, Emily Owens, M.D., Justified, Chopped, Cougar Town, Total Blackout, and The Joe Schmo Show.

JJ’s Choice

cougartown115smallLast week, we saw the return of Cougar Town on TBS, but nothing had really changed. The show felt solid, like the show that finished its run on ABC. And #coffeebitch had me laughing so hard, as well as everything to do with Ellie and Laurie.

On tonight’s episode, “I Need To Know,” Jules releases Travis from mandatory family night, but when he stays away too long, she becomes crazed. Ellie discovers she can get Andy to do anything she wants by training him like a dog. And the guys grow mustaches to look cool like Tom Selleck.

See the funny tonight on TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Cougar Town @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Go On, New Girl, Happy Endings, The Mindy Project, and Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23.

Jenny’s Choice #2

ncisla115smallYou all know how much I love NCIS: LA—especially Kensi & Deeks. And last week’s episode was great, with Kensi undercover. I especially liked when she had to outrun the “police” with the bad guy, and then at the end, when the scared guy/informant dude saved Kensi from under the vehicle. And tonight, Nate is back! Yay! I love Nate! 😀

On tonight’s episode, “Paper Soldiers,” a distraught widow is suspicious of the circumstances surrounding her Marine husband’s last battle, and Sam and Callen help to determine if there has been a cover-up. Meanwhile, Hetty summons Operational Psychologist Nate Getz to be her “pawn” and the rest of the group sense another evaluation on the horizon. Peter Cambor guest stars.

Don’t miss it tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS: LA @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Ben and Kate, Happy Endings, The New Normal, Chopped, Cougar Town, Justified, Total Blackout, & Flashpoint.

    Re: the Easter stuff–me too! I was both appalled and delighted to see Creme Eggs on the shelf this past weekend! 🙂
