If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/4/13

Wow… That was quite the game last night, wasn’t it? That crazy 108-yard return for a touchdown? The 49ers rallying back, only to lose by so little? It was a very fun game to watch. But tonight, there’s no football. There’s just some great TV. So check out what we think you should be watching! 🙂

castle24smallIt’s been two weeks since the last new episode of Castle. I swear, I don’t know what I’m going to do come May when the season finale airs. Probably be a sobbing mess because I don’t want to miss the show over the summer! The last episode was kind of sad because the murder victim was killed simply because he was trying to do the right thing and turn his life around after finding out the woman he loved was pregnant with his child. The most touching part of the episode was at the very end, I think, when she and her father met up at the station to go home together. He had been one of the biggest protestors against her boyfriend, and even though he had just found out about her being the dead guy’s girlfriend & stuff, he was there to support her. It was sweet. We didn’t get a lot of Caskett moments, and it was even kind of a downer for fans of Esposito & Lanie because Espo spent his time flirting with & going out with the dead guy’s head of security. Hopefully we’ll see more of both couples (or couple & non-couple?) this week & in the rest of the season.

This should be a very good episode this week. The man who killed Beckett’s mother and tried to have Beckett herself killed is back, and this time, Beckett may have a legal reason to lock him up. I doubt it, but it would be nice to see that smug bastard behind bars, wouldn’t it?

On tonight’s episode, “Recoil,” while investigating the murder of a young woman, Castle and Beckett find evidence that links her death with Senator William H. Bracken (guest star Jack Coleman), the man responsible for Beckett’s mother’s murder. Determined to finally bring Bracken to justice, Beckett soon realizes that things are far more complicated than they seem. Michael Dorn also returns as Beckett’s therapist, Dr. Carter Burke.

See the drama tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

thefollowing24smallAfter an insane weekend, I am looking forward to a new episode of The Following to distract me from life. This show has quickly become one of my top 5 must-see shows mostly due to the brilliant writing and the shock value. They are never afraid to push the boundaries on this show and because of that, we, the viewer, are constantly treated to endless surprises, suspense, and character development.

Last week, we saw as the FBI found the house where the cult has been gathering to plan their sacrifices to Joe, and we got a better look into the past of the seemingly harmless Emma. That girl is definitely coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs. She killed her own mother (although, granted, her mother was an uber witch), and she is essentially the ring leader of this little band of insane follwers. Luckily, they haven’t hurt the son yet, but I’m not sure that will continue for long. The creepiest part of the whole episode for me was the Edgar Allen Poe masks—they were beyond disturbing. Eek.

On tonight’s episode, “The Poet’s Fire,” Hardy and the FBI try to predict the actions of a new follower Rick; Paul’s jealousy reaches a breaking point, and the story about the beginning of Carroll and Hardy’s relationship is told.

Come sit on the edge of your seat with me and tune into FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Following @ Clicker.

mondaymornings24smallTonight, TNT kicks off the new medical drama Monday Mornings, from producers David E. Kelley and Dr. Sanjay Gupta. The series follows the lives of the medical professionals at Portland, Oregon’s Chelsea General, led by chief of surgery Dr. Harding Hooten (Alfred Molina) and trauma chief Dr. Jorge Villaneuva (Ving Rhames). Also on staff are Dr. Sung Park (Keong Sim), neurosurgeons Dr. Tyler Wilson (Jamie Bamber) and Dr. Tina Ridgeway (Jennifer Finnigan), cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Sydney Napur (Sarayu Rao), transplant chief Dr. Buck Tierney (Bill Irwin), and young resident Dr. Michelle Robidaux (Emily Swallow). Monday mornings are when these doctors gather to review the complications and errors they recently experienced while working on their patients.

If we can expect anything of a David E. Kelley show, it’s that it will introduce some really quirky characters, have a lot of drama, but also make you think. With the series focused on the mistakes and unsuccessful cases of these doctors, I’m hoping that it can still deliver that same charm of Kelley’s past series and offer some uplifting and inspiring plot lines.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Jorge Villanueva treats a car-crash victim and Dr. Ty Wilson helps an 11-year-old with a soccer injury.

See the premiere tonight on TNT at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Monday Mornings @ Clicker.

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

bunheadssmallThis second half of the first season of Bunheads has been stellar, and it isn’t showing any decline (although the ratings could be better). Last week, Scotty, Michelle’s brother (played by Sutton Foster’s real life brother Hunter Foster) showed up, and this created some tension in Paradise. And Melanie’s sudden love for roller derby was messing with her friendships—a great example of how this show is a perfect fit for ABC Family.

On tonight’s episode, “Take the Vicuna,” Fanny clashes with Milly (played by Liza Weil from Gilmore Girls) over an upcoming dance recital, while Sasha throws a housewarming party and Scotty takes Michelle on a road trip.

Find out what detour they make on ABC Family on 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bunheads @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching 2 Broke Girls, 90210, Mike & Molly, Lost Girl, and Castle.

bones24smallI loved last week’s Bones episode for several reasons. One, because Vik Sahay is so much fun—I loved him on Chuck, and he was fun last week, especially when he gripped Bones’s hand and wouldn’t let it go. The other reason was the last couple of minutes of the episode, when Booth was filming the video for Christine, giving her advice, etc, and Bones was in the background, tears running down her cheeks, and then she ran and jumped into his lap. It was very cute and very sweet. And I love how she changed her burial wishes to wanting to be thrown into a volcano. I think that’s an awesome idea. But why just dump her ashes in? Why not just throw her body in? *laugh* Okay, so creepy maybe, but a funny thought.

I’m excited about this week’s episode because Angela has a big part of the story line, and we get to see her out of the lab and being a bit of a tough girl. That should be fun!

On tonight’s episode, “The Doll in the Derby,” Brennan and Booth investigate the death of a female roller derby skater whose body was dismembered. In order to get more answers, they enlist Angela to go undercover as a derby skater. Meanwhile, Cam tries to uncover the details behind Booth’s secretive hospital appointments.

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

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Bachelor, Continuum, How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement, 2 Broke Girls, The Following, Next Great Baker, Mike & Molly, Hawaii Five-0, Pawn Star$, & Monday Mornings.

hawaiifiveo24smallIt wouldn’t be a Monday without Hawaii Five-0, and tonight’s episode is special, with us seeing a remake of a fan favorite episode from the original. Lately, the show has been doing little things that seem to be ratings grabs, but frankly, I don’t care—I love it. The show overall continues to keep my attention, and I have to say I really love watching Kamekona come up with new disturbing food inventions. He is so funny. I’m really glad the judge sided with Danny about Grace not having to move off the island, and the relationship with McGarrett and Catherine—they are so cute together. This show manages to keep me happy with character development as well as great crime stories to intrigue. Still one of my favorites.

On tonight’s episode, “Hookman,” a man who was injured years ago begins taking revenge on the police officers who caused his injuries, including Steve, whose father was one of the officers responsible for his maiming.

Take a look and see how close to the original episode the remake got tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ Clicker.

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