If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/25/13

I hope Megan’s winter is letting up…but mine isn’t! As of Sunday night, Monday and Tuesday for me are supposed to be full of snow again…which I’m guessing means my kid won’t have school on Tuesday. Oi. LOL They’ve used all their snow days, so if they take any more days off for the weather like that, they’ll have to extend out the school year. So to take my mind off the winter blues, I’m going to curl up and watch some great new TV. Check out what we think YOU should be watching. 😉

bones225smallLast week’s episode of Bones alternately made me laugh (the whole Cam/Michelle and Cam/Finn conversations were great!) and cry (I was SO SO SO mad at both those mothers of the teenagers. Like…throw things at my TV mad. To tell her daughter not to say anything about being raped? Possibly the worst case of parenting I’ve ever seen on TV. Eek! I mean, it was good for the SHOW, but damn…). And then poor Sweets… Not only did we learn that he’d been abused, but he had to basically lie to the girl after she confided in him what had happened. It was for her own good and for the good of the case, but it was still hard for them both. In the end, I think she accepted that he’d done what he had to do and why, and that made it worth it.

On tonight’s episode, “The Fact in the Fiction,” when extremely educated new intern Dr. Oliver Wells (guest star Brian Klugman) starts working at the Jeffersonian, his quick-learning, enthusiastic personality challenges Brennan as he gets under her skin with his eccentric but undeniable observations, causing her to try to be more open-minded about many scientific questions. Meanwhile, Booth worries she may have gone too far when she accepts the possibility of time travel as a factor in a murder investigation. (Just as a side note, Brian Klugman’s uncle was Jack Klugman—who died in December of 2012—one half of TV’s Odd Couple.)

To see Brennan maybe go a *tad* bit too far, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Continuum, How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement, 2 Broke Girls, The Following, Mike & Molly, Diners, Drive-in & Dives, Pawn Star$, & Castle.

bunheadssmallIt’s hard to believe that it’s the season finale of Bunheads already; however, it’s been a very entertaining, heartwarming, and hilarious season and well worth watching. I have enjoyed it from beginning to end, and I am hoping that we get a few more seasons out of it for sure! The cast of this show is a gem, and I have loved the character development throughout the season. Michelle has grown up the most out of everyone. My hope for her is that she can finally truly feel at home because she is a part of this town whether she planned on it or not. Sasha still makes my heart ache with her abandonment issues, but I love how much of a mother figure Michelle has become—forcing them both to grow up.

On tonight’s episode, “Next,” Michelle travels to Hollywood to audition for a Broadway musical; Fanny and Scotty return; and Sasha thinks the girls should take their relationships with their boyfriends to the next level.

To wrap the season up with this sassy cast, tune in to ABC Family at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bunheads @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching The Following, Bones, 2 Broke Girls, and Mike & Molly.

castle225smallWhat an exciting episode of Castle last week! Alexis was kidnapped. While the detectives and Castle frantically searched for clues and suspects, Alexis worked on implementing Hostage 101 techniques. First, she tried to create a relationship with her captors so that it would humanize her and prevent them from killing her. Then she used lock-picking skills her dad taught her to escape her room—only to discover that she wasn’t in New York anymore, but was actually in Paris! In this episode, we got to see two different sides of Castle—his loving side as he recounted the story of Alexis’s birth to Beckett, and his inner-Liam Neeson as he threatened a suspect that he would do anything to get his daughter back.

I watched last week’s episode on the ABC press site, and it opened with the warning: “please do not reveal the country or location at the end of the episode”—which pretty much spoiled it for me. I knew it would end with Alexis running outside to see some foreign skyline. I’m hoping to actually be surprised by tonight’s second part—I want to see Castle tear through Paris on a rampage to get Alexis back! 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Hunt,” Castle seeks assistance from a shady individual to rescue Alexis after the FBI proves unsuccessful, and he learns that his daughter’s abduction is possibly tied to something more disastrous than he first realized. James Brolin guest stars.

See how Castle helps save his daughter tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

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

90210225smallLast week’s ratings for 90210 were abysmal. This season so far has only gone deeper into “guilty pleasure” territory, and I think the fifth season might be enough for this show to finish. Although some themes are interesting (Silver and her difficulty in getting children), others are quickly derailing (anything pertaining the Chronos Society and Liam’s “acting”).

On tonight’s episode, “Strange Brew,” Annie is confused over her returned feelings for Liam, Naomi decides to open a restaurant with (half-brother) Mark, while Silver isn’t to happy about Dixon booking Michaela.

Find out Annie deals with her feelings on The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of 90210 @ Clicker.

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