If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/25/13

I would be looking forward to this weekend, except I’m going to be spending all day tomorrow helping get a house ready to go on the market—painting, cleaning, and so much more. Blah. On the bright side, I have tonight’s line up of television to help me unwind and mentally prepare for the work tomorrow. Let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

kitchennightmaressmallSome would say that Gordon Ramsay is anything but relaxing. I would have to disagree. 🙂 Kitchen Nightmares amuses me to no end, and it makes me giggle with delight when Ramsay has to school people. Perhaps I may be slightly sadistic, but I enjoy watching clueless people learn lessons—it’s soothing. Regardless of why I watch, I find that every episode keeps me interested, and it should be a must-watch for you, as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Olde Hitching Post,” Chef Ramsay confronts the owner of the Olde Hitching Post in Massachusetts, who refuses to allow his daughter and co-owner of the eatery have any say.

To see how Ramsay deals with this control freak issue, tune into FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Kitchen Nightmares @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Spartacus and Four Weddings.

nikita125smallO. M. G! She cut off his hand!! Last week’s episode of Nikita included some of the most tense moments of the series so far, in my opinion. Dealing with the kill chip in Sonya’s brain and finding the second mole, Michael and Alex coming clean about her drug use and his knowledge of it, the chase for Amanda, and finally, Nikita chopping off Michael’s hand in order to save him from the car exploding. It was non-stop tension, and I can’t begin to imagine where they are going to go next. Michael is angry—whether he’s actually angry at Nikita for saving him or just angry at the circumstance, I don’t know, but I do know it won’t be a fun road!

On tonight’s episode, “Aftermath,” Nikita and Owen face off against a rogue “cleaner” named Liam (guest star Pedro Pascal), while Michael takes a new position at Division. Michael and Nikita’s relationship becomes strained as he watches her work with Owen.

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 Mystery Diners.

sparticus125smallTonight, the final season of Spartacus begins on Starz. When we last saw Spartacus and his crew, they were trapped atop Vesuvius but scaled down the side of the mountain to perform a sneak attack on the Roman soldiers. The battle that followed resulted in the deaths of both Mira and Oenomaus. However, our crew did have some victories of their own—Maevia sliced Ashur up his privates, and Spartacus stabbed Glaber through the throat. Meanwhile, back at the ludus, Lucretia had gone mad—she killed Ilithyia’s servants, performed a Caesarian, took the baby, and jumped off the side of the cliff with it.

So tonight, the endgame begins. This season is subtitled “War of the Damned,” which seems like a very fitting title. The Romans may have a bit of a setback with the loss of Glaber, but that won’t stop them for long. I’m sure they will just redouble their forces and go after Spartacus. I don’t know anything about the real story of Spartacus, so I have no idea how all of this will end, but I can’t wait to watch. I’m sure there will be lots of action, blood, and shocking deaths to come!

On tonight’s premiere, “Enemies of Rome,” Spartacus sees his army grow and deal a serious blow to Rome’s fighting legions, which leads Roman officials to seek empire-saving funding from the aristocratic and ambitious Marcus Crassus.

Be there from the start tonight on Starz at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Spartacus @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Banshee and Portlandia.
