If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/21/13

With February sweeps going on, my TiVo has been getting so backed up—and trying to squeeze in some movies before the Oscars on Sunday isn’t helping my situation any! Tonight, there’s once again a lot of great new TV to choose from, and we’ve got some suggestions for you.

parksandrec221smallParks and Recreation has been really great this season. Last week, Leslie and Ben held a black-tie gala to raise money to build the park. However, Councilman Jamm arranged for an emergency-response drill at the same time to try to prevent Leslie from raising the $50K she needed. Meanwhile, Andy took the police-academy exam and scored 100% on the written portion but flunked the personality test. And Ron filled in for Leslie on “Pawnee Today.”

Tonight is the moment we’ve been anticipating all season—Leslie and Ben’s wedding! This is Pawnee, so I’m sure something strange will occur to make it a truly memorable event! Also, will tonight be when the city counsel finally votes yay or nay on Leslie’s park? And what craziness will my favorite trio—April, Andy, and Ron—get up to this week?

On tonight’s special double episode, “Leslie and Ben; Correspondents’ Lunch,” Leslie and Ben have two hours to complete a year-long project; at the same time, Ron’s temper gets him in trouble. Later, Leslie is at a loss for words after the speech she prepared for a special event is stolen. Meanwhile, Ben begins his new job at the Sweetums Charity Foundation; and Ann summons the courage to ask an important question.

See the hour-long episode tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Zero Hour, Grey’s Anatomy, Community, 1600 Penn, Archer, Legit, King of the Nerds, and Suits.

nerds221smallI thought about doing The Big Bang Theory this week again because I absolutely adore it (& you should watch…because this week, Penny actually gets an acting job!), but I can’t NOT recommend King of the Nerds. Last week, the teams competed on solving puzzles: a giant Rubic’s Cube-type to then help them solve a complicated Sudoku one. It was a tough challenge, but a lot of fun watching them figure it all out. I did seem to scream at my TV an awful lot, though. Stupidly, Joshua chose to sit out. I don’t know if their team would have lost if he’d been in it or not, but we won’t get to find out, because much to my enjoyment, he lost during the Nerd-Off against Ivan and went home. I was so happy because I like Ivan and am hopeful he’ll win it all. (And just sayin’, but I’d have been awesome at that memory game. Hrmph. Watching them deal with the flying tennis balls and 400-pound Sumo wrestler was the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while, though!

I’m so excited about tonight’s episode, because when I interviewed hosts Curtis and Robert, they each said this week’s challenge was their favorite. For that reason alone, it’s going to be worth it. But also, the guest judges and special guests should be fun! For the guest judges, we have Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome of Garfunkel & Oates, as well as MC Frontalot… *snicker* And for special guests…fans of So You Think You Can Dance will be excited: Tabitha and Napoleon Dumo!

On tonight’s episode, “Nerdy Dancing,” during this episode’s Nerd War, Team Orange and Team Blue get nerdy with their bad selves in the world’s first Nerd Anthem competition. Then, two nerds show off some serious dancing moves as they go head-to-head in the Nerd-Off.

Don’t miss the awesome fun tonight on TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of King of the Nerds @ Clicker.

I’ll be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Zero Hour, Two and a Half Men, Person of Interest, 1600 Penn, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, & Elementary.

greysanatomy221smallGrey’s Anatomy has been a mess of financial woes lately, and isn’t that just the way life is for all of us? It has to be stressful as a doctor to watch the place you work crumble around you—but this is a Shonda Rhimes show, so we’re going to the brink of destruction and we’ll bounce back for another season. Yes, I jest… I adore the way Shonda plays with our emotions, becuase it keeps us all tuning in. The doctors aren’t throwing in the towel yet, and I know we’re going to see some amazing moments before this season is done.

On tonight’s episode, “This is Why We Fight,” as news of Seattle Grace’s financial issues spreads, Catherine wants Jackson to move to Boston, and the interns fear for their jobs; the doctors try to save the hospital by meeting with a possible investor; Jo is impressed with Alex.

To see if the doctors can save the hosptal, tune in to ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grey’s Anatomy @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Person of Interest, The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Zero Hour, and American Idol.

suits221smallThe Suits season finale is upon us, and it promises to be a good one. Last week, Hardman took his cases to trial in multiple states while trying to make a new deal with a British firm, and Rachel learned she didn’t get into Harvard. And Mike was having quite the hostile working relationship with Katrina. This second half of the season hasn’t disappointed, and it will be interesting to see how the firm copes with everything that has been going on.

On tonight’s episode, “War,” a British firm decides to sneak in with a tempting offer for Harvey’s firm, clashing with his decisions for the future and Jessica’s own vision, leaving them both to make up their mind on what direction to take with their career. Abigail Spencer & Adam Godley guest star.

Don’t miss it tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Suits @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, Community, The Vampire Diaries, Two and a Half Men, and Project Runway.
