If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/4/13

March is coming in like a lion here in Ontario. What’s it like in your area? I’m happy that March is here, but it seems like this year is flying by already, and before we know it, our favorite shows will be going on hiatus. 🙁 Before I get too sad about saying goodbye to my favorites, let’s enjoy the new TV that we have tonight.

Megan’s Choice

bones34smallBones has been really solid this season so far, and I am loving the dynamics of all the relationships on the show. Of course, Booth and Brennan are by far my main concern. That said, I have been enjoying how involved in the cases Angela has been becoming to help her get out of the office more. Last week’s episode introduced us to a new intern, Oliver, who was so incredibly intelligent, he almsot appeared smarter than Brennan. It was crazy. I also loved the part where Brennan talked about how happy she is with Booth and their daughter. It was really sweet.

On tonight’s episode, “The Survivor in the Soap,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of Symchay Conteh, a young man whose remains were found in a barrel at a hazardous waste disposal facility. They discover that the victim was an immigrant from Sierra Leone working numerous part-time jobs in order to make ends meet. Meanwhile, as the team gets deeper into the investigation, Cam and Arastoo find it even more difficult to keep their relationship a secret, and Brennan and Booth try to decide on a vacation destination.

To see if Cam and Arastoo’s secret gets discovered, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching The Bachelor and The Following.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

JJ’s Choice

lostgirl34smallThis season, Lost Girl has been quite the mixed bag. The stories are interesting, but there isn’t an interesting season-long story or they tend to get solved a little too easily. At least Kenzi got saved last week, but it felt like a big move up to a relatively simple solution. And I’m still not sure that Bo should be with Lauren, because her chemistry with Dyson is so much more raw.

On tonight’s episode, “There’s Bo Place Like Home,” Bo faces the overwhelming task of taking a journey back to where everything began, the farm where she grew up with her conservative adoptive family and discovered what she really was after accidentally killing her first lover.

See if you can go home again tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Lost Girl @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching 90210.

switchedatbirth2013smallTonight, Switched at Birth is airing a special episode, presented entirely in American Sign Language. Last week, the deaf Carlton students expressed their opposition to the plan to add 50 more students to the hearing pilot program. However, Daphne was stuck in the middle—she was cast in the collaborative hearing/deaf play, but her deaf friends wanted her to drop out in support of their cause. The arguments over the pilot program ultimately led to the school board deciding to shut down Carlton altogether. Meanwhile, Bay confronted Regina about her alcoholism and informed her boyfriend of her problem; Melody encouraged Travis to meet with a college recruiter; and Toby realized he was still interested in Nikki, who gave him a second chance.

One of the things I get frustrated with while watching this show is that often if I am multitasking, I notice a sudden loss of sound and realize there is a sign language scene, and I have to rewind and watch the screen. It will be interesting to watch tonight’s entire ASL episode, as it will force me to give full attention to the show the entire time. I think this episode will be an excellent learning opportunity, giving viewers a tiny glimpse into what things are like for these characters and deaf folks everywhere.

On tonight’s episode, “Uprising,” Daphne leads her classmates in a protest against the closing of their school, and Bay’s efforts to join them are met with resistance. The episode is presented entirely through American Sign Language.

See the incredibly different, very interesting episode tonight on ABC Family at 8/7c.


I’ll also be watching/recording Bones, The Following, The Carrie Diaries, Dallas, Continuum, and Being Human.
