If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/7/13

I was away last weekend in New York City for the my college roommate’s wedding. The reception was at the same venue used for a wedding reception in the season one finale of Girls (or so I was told, several times—I never actually made it past the second episode). Since I got back, I’ve been madly trying to catch up on the stockpile of last week’s TV that I couldn’t catch up with over the weekend. At least this week has been fairly light! We’ve got some tips to help you decide between tonight’s slimmer-than-usual TV choices.

Kyle’s Choice

legit37smallLast week, I recommended Archer, so this week, I’m going to recommend its FX comedy partner, Legit. The series stars Jim Jefferies playing a version of himself—an Australian stand-up comic living in America, seeking more legitimacy in his life and career. Last week, Jim was turned down for the role of “hot guy” after he removed his shirt at the audition. He sought advice from Andy Dick, who gave him some acting tips and suggested he see a personal trainer to get in shape. However, Jim’s laziness quickly rubbed off on the trainer, who soon found himself completely out of shape.

Legit is a series that really surprised me. I had no idea what the show was going to be about when it first premiered, but I enjoyed the premise. While it started off a bit crass, it has developed into a really fun comedy with a lot of heart. I find myself really rooting for these characters!

On tonight’s episode, “Hoarders,” Jim arranges an intervention after discovering that Janice has become a hoarder.

To see if Jim can clean up Janice’s act, tune in to FX at 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Legit @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Community, 1600 Penn, Archer, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, King of the Nerds, and Nathan for You.

Jenny’s Choice

kingofthenerds2smallIt’s been a fantastic first season of King of the Nerds. Last week, my favorite (girl, and tied with two of my favorite boys) from the very beginning, Moogega, went home… The engineer went home on the engineering challenge. It was MUCH sadder than the self-proclaimed Batman nerd going home on the superhero/graphic novel challenge. I loved Moo, but she was off on her calculations of how many sheets of glass the objects would break. Whether she was feeling too cocky or confident so she didn’t put a lot of thought into it or what, I don’t know. But Danielle, who has really started to get on the nerves of everyone left in the house, worked her ass off the night before and did the best, which meant she had all the power. And don’t even get me started on Genevieve and Celeste working together to make sure Danielle didn’t win. How working together helped them, I don’t… No, never mind. It didn’t help them at all! Two wrong answers certainly didn’t make a right.

My pick for tonight is Ivan. I’ve loved him since the beginning, so I’m hoping he wins. I’m pretty irritated with both Danielle & Genevieve, so out of the girls, I think my pick would have to be Celeste. but I’m kind of hoping Ivan takes it home tonight. Whoever wins, I get to speak one on one with them tomorrow about their experience on the show. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments! 🙂 I have a few already thought up, but I’d love to hear what you guys want to know!

On tonight’s episode, “The King is Crowned,” while attempting to navigate the Maze of Terror, one nerd’s stay at Nerdvana comes to a dead end. Then the tension and trivia-filled Nerd Bowl whittles the competition down to the final two contestants, who must face one final twist to determine who will be crowned “King of the Nerds.”

See who comes out victorious and gets to sit on the Throne of Games (my favorite little play on words throughout the entire season!) tonight on TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of King of the Nerds @ TV.com.

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

Megan’s Choice

tbbt37smallI am so thrilled The Big Bang Theory is back this week a new episode. I’m loving how Sheldon is learning to follow social rules this season. It makes for some intense hilarity. Last episode was super funny, watching Raj mope around his apartment because his coffee date ran out on him—sad, but funny. I was also cracking up watching Amy dealing with the nicotine-craving monkeys. I sincerely hope it was tootsie rolls as well. 😉

On tonight’s episode, “The Contractual Obligation Implementation,” Leonard, Sheldon, and Wolowitz speak to junior high girls about science-related careers; Raj plans a date with Lucy.

To giggle your stress away, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching 1600 Penn, Person of Interest, Community, American Idol, Glee, and Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell.

JJ’s Choice

projectrunwaysmallThis season of Project Runway finally has me excited again. I wasn’t sure how a “team-season” would work, but at least the teams are mixed up once in a while and the personalities are explosive. It is interesting to see how some (good) designers tend to work on their own and not help their teammates. Last week, it even cost 2 designers a chance at the top spot.

On tonight’s episode, “A Sticky Situation,” the remaining hopefuls struggle when challenged to create a complete fashion-forward outfit made completely from duct tape; designer and guest Chris Benz helps judge the looks.

See who goes home tonight on Lifetime at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Project Runway @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, The Big Bang Theory, Community, and Glee.
