If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/20/13

Dear Winter: I am officially done with you. Go away. Sincerely, your former adoring fan. That is how I am feeling today… Sick of winter! Don’t get me wrong, I love looking at the pretty snow, but I am tired of driving in it, walking in it, and most of all, tired of getting all the kids’ snow gear on… It’s just like the movies every time they’re all bundled up: someone has to pee! So to distract me from my distain for the season, I’m going to curl up with some hot chocolate and watch some new television. You’d be wise to do the same.

criminalminds220smallI have been on a roller coaster with Criminal Minds through out the years—at times despising what the show runners have done to my favorite characters—but this season, I am loving most of the story lines. As sad as I was about Reid losing Mauve, I realized that this gives his character so much more depth and personality, making him seem less robotic and more human. The place I’d like to see more growth is for Garcia and Morgan to move past the flirty stuff and actually hook up—although I realize that this puts me on the shipper’s path, I don’t care, as long as I get them together. Despite the characters, at the end of the day, I tune in for the cases because no other show does creepy, serial killers better than this show!

On tonight’s episode, “Broken,” the team heads to Austin to investigate when victims with watches set to inaccurate times are discovered; the team’s stalker gets closer.

To see if the team can solve the case in time, tune in to CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, CSI, Chicago Fire, The Americans, and Supernatural.

theneighborssmallLast week’s episode of The Neighbors was so funny. It was all about the Bird-Kirsees not realizing who and what were thought of as attractive here on Earth. Neither could believe that Jackie was the attractive one while Larry was…not. And poor Debbie decided she needed a day of being just…Debbie Weaver the woman, not Debbie Weaver the mom or wife, so she convinced Jackie to go out shopping and getting all dolled up, and then they went to a club. Not to be outdone, the men convinced Amber to give them makeovers—they looked like…well, they looked ridiculous—and then they went to the club, “Hell,” the ladies had gone to. Marty found Debbie being flirted with by Michael Bay (which was hysterical). And how cute was Dick Butkis as he tried to figure out how Hide and Seek was played and why it was supposed to be fun.

This show has become one of my all-time very favorite comedies, so imagine my absolute shock when I looked on TV Line’s annual Renewal Scorecard and saw that The Neighbors was considered a long-shot for renewal! What the heck? Seriously? You people have GOT to start watching and give this show a chance. It is truly a cute, sweet, hysterically funny little gem, and that it is so far from being a sure thing just kills me. 🙁

On tonight’s episode, “Larry Bird Presents an Oscar(R)-Winning Film by Larry Bird,” Max makes it into the final round of the school spelling bee. When he finds himself going head to head with Dick Butkus, Larry and Reggie, who’ve become obsessed with winning an Oscar, decide to videotape the bee—and the competition between Max and Dick—hoping to take home the award for Best Documentary.

Don’t miss this award-worthy show tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Neighbors @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guys with Kids, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, The Americans, Chicago Fire, CSI, Restaurant Impossible, & Top Chef.

themiddle220smallThe Middle continues to be one of my favorite Wednesday comedies. Last week, it was the show’s fourth Valentine’s Day episode. Axl and his partners, Sean and Darrin, found a new venture for Boss Co.—helping guys deliver break-up news to their girlfriends. However, when Matt wanted Axl to deliver the news to Sue that he wouldn’t be taking her to the school dance, Axl saw the other side of his business and decided to help bring couples back together. Meanwhile, Brick discovered that Frankie had been throwing out his artwork, Mike accidentally sent a romantic text to a coworker, and Darrin took Sue to the school dance, where the two kissed.

I think this is a great idea to get Darrin and Sue together. First of all, they are great for each other—it’s not like the Sue & Brad relationship is headed for any kind of romantic turn. 🙂 And secondly, it’s always amusing when Axl and Sue’s worlds collide.

On tonight’s episode, “Winners and Losers,” Frankie worries that Brick will get lost on a class trip to Chicago, and her anxiety prevents her from getting excited about watching the Oscars. Elsewhere, Sue needs to know if Axl’s buddy is interested in her.

See the funny tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Middle @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Neighbors, Modern Family, Suburgatory, Whitney, Guys with Kids, Arrow, Supernatural, The Americans, Top Chef, Southland, Workaholics, and Kroll Show.

suburgatory220smallLast week was such a hilarious outing for Suburgatory. From Tessa and Ryan’s visit to the art house movie, Shiela’s mother visiting, and George “enjoying” that 18-course meal and going on a Vallentine’s Day bender. Very nicely done!

On tonight’s episode, “T-Ball and Sympathy,” Tessa decides to take it upon herself to begin handing out advice to everybody she comes across after being labeled a relationship expert, which eventually leads to a sad realization for Mr. Wolfe. Meanwhile, Noah and Dallas are still at odds, and George helps Dallas coach a T-Ball team.

See how they manage the coaching on ABC at 9:31/8:31c. Learn where to find episodes online of Suburgatory @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, Arrow, Whitney, and Modern Family.
