If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/18/13

Thank God it’s finally Friday—I am more than ready for this weekend. I have been under the weather with a throat infection and am looking forward to a weekend filled with playing TV catch up and drinking tea. Let’s see what’s on tonight to get our weekends started right.

csiny118smallCSI: NY continues to be my favorite of the franchise; the original has become boring, but the NY team never fails to keep my attention. I hopeful that Mac will finally manage to overcome his memory loss from the shooting, but more importantly that he’ll start leaning on people more. Lindsay and Danny remain my favorite couple on the show, and I love how well they give each other space to grow, yet are always there when it counts. Finally, we have the intricate writing that makes me sit on the edge of my seat week after week. Overall, if you haven’t been giving this show a chance, smarten up and watch.

On tonight’s episode, “Nine Thirteen,” the team investigates when a masked man is found at the bottom of a skyscraper with a history of suspicious deaths.

To see if there’s any connection between all the crimes, tune into CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of CSI: NY @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods and Fringe.

nikita118smallTGIF! It’s been a very long week with lots of strep throat and sinus issues around our house, so I’m excited for the weekend now that we’re all well. It’s been over a month since the last new episode of Nikita, so I’m thrilled it’s back. It’s been kind of an up-and-down season so far. Michael and Nikita are engaged, which I love, but Alex and Sean aren’t together and Alex is hooked on painkillers. For a while, I wasn’t sure I liked Ryan anymore, but now, I think he’s just really between a rock and a hard place. He is trying his damndest to keep the group safe from the President and the government, and to do that, he has to be kind of a pain in the ass to everyone and comes off like he doesn’t care. We also found out that Sonya is Amanda’s mole, but not by choice. Birkhoff found out she was the mole and was hurt and pissed off, but he was clearly relieved when he found out why. It’ll be interesting to see if they can figure out who the second mole is that is there keeping an eye on Sonya without getting her killed.

On tonight’s episode, “Intersection,” Birkhoff tells Nikita that Sonya is Amanda’s mole and not only has Amanda reactivated Sonya’s kill chip, but she also placed a second mole in Division to keep an eye on her. Nikita, Michael, and Ryan devise a plan to use Sonya to ferret out Amanda’s hiding place, and Birkhoff sets a trap for the second mole. Meanwhile, Michael confronts Alex about her drug use, and she begs him not to tell Nikita.

Don’t miss the drama tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Nikita @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Fringe, Last Man Standing, Malibu Country, CSI: NY, Blue Bloods, & Mystery Diners.

fring118small1Fringe has been an up-and-down journey. What started as a somewhat-regular science fiction show like The X Files quickly became a very serialised show focusing on a group of people exploring their humanity through the cases and alternate realities and even resetting timelines. It’s amazing that this show got five seasons, and tonight, it is all coming to an end. It’s also the show’s 100th episode, which means syndication!

I hope Anna Torv will quickly get another show (maybe even one with a little more laughter), and I hope Jasika Nicole will be placed a little in the forefront for her next show.

fringe118small2Last we saw the group, they found out Daniel and September are the same person and that the Observers invaded because of a 99.99999% chance that their plan would succeed.

On tonight’s first episode, “Liberty,” the Fringe team engages a desperate plan as Olivia embarks on a dangerous and otherworldly journey into the unknown. Then, on “An Enemy of Fate,” Peter, Olivia, Walter, Astrid, and Broyles face off against the Observers in one final and extraordinary battle for the fate of mankind.

See how it ends on FOX at 8/7c & 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Fringe @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Oprah’s Next Chapter: Lance Armstrong.
