If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/18/13

We’re over halfway through March, which is quickly bringing Easter upon us. I mean, it seems like we just wrapped up Christmas, and now it’s time for the Easter Bunny to visit. Speaking of the Easter Bunny… I just watched Rise of the Guardians over the weekend with the family, and it was one of the best kids movies I’ve seen in a while. I highly recommend it for kids of all ages. Now onto my true love of television and what you should be watching tonight.

hawaiifiveo318smallI have been going through serious Hawaii Five-0 withdrawal because it’s been FOREVER since we’ve seen a new episode. It’s difficult not seeing my TV boyfriend on a regular basis, but then again, any chance I get to see Alex O’Loughlin is a happy day for me. 🙂 This season has been really solid since the beginning, although I’m anxious to see when they’re going to wrap up the Wo Fat story and see where else they can go.

On tonight’s episode, “Na Ki’i,” when a murder victim is discovered in Dog the Bounty Hunter’s vehicle, Catherine goes undercover at a roller derby.

To see if Catherine rolls her way into an arrest, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hawaii Five-0 @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Bones, The Following, 2 Broke Girls, and Mike & Molly.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

castle318smallI’m so excited that Castle is back tonight. I loved the 2-part kidnapping episodes, although I wish we’d gotten more time with Castle & his dad—but at least Castle now knows WHY his dad left them and stayed away. I would think that’s got to change his perspective on a lot of what he’s thought his whole life. Another thing I wish we’d gotten to see were Beckett’s & Martha’s reactions to the story… Ah well. I still really enjoyed it. We got to see a different, tougher side of Castle, which was REALLY sexy. *laugh*

I’ve seen clips from tonight’s episode, and I am really looking forward to it because it’s one of those classic Castle episodes that includes a lot of humor and giggles. I really can’t wait.

On tonight’s episode, “Scared to Death,” when a young woman appears to have literally been scared to death three days after watching a “haunted” DVD, Castle and Beckett delve into one of their creepiest cases yet. To make matters worse, Castle becomes convinced that he too is marked for death when he accidentally watches the cursed video. Master of horror Wes Craven makes a special quest appearance.

See all of Castle’s antics tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ TV.com.

batesmotelsmallOver the weekend, I watched Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho for the first time ever and reviewed the new-to-Blu-ray film Hitchcock—which is a drama set around the filming of Psycho. So I’m all prepared and really excited for tonight’s premiere of the new A&E series Bates Motel.

Although the series takes place in the present, it is actually a prequel to the film. I’m excited to see this show, as it looks like it’s going to be a great creepy drama. The series will explore Norman’s informative teenage years, as we see him become that crazy murderer from the film. I really like this cast—although it’s going to be strange seeing that fun-loving boy from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and August Rush all grown up, becoming a mother-loving serial killer!

On tonight’s premiere, “First You Dream, Then You Die,” Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) purchase that infamous motel.

See the start of it all tonight on A&E at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bates Motel @ TV.com.

2brokegirls318smallThe last new episode of 2 Broke Girls was one of the most frustrating endings for the show because Max and Caroline lost all their money and their cupcake shop. I’m curious to see where the show is going from here because this is a major step back but will also be a great source of stess for the girls.

On tonight’s episode, “And The Temporary Distraction,” the girls take on office temp jobs, where Max gets hit in by the boss while Caroline attempts to climb the coorporate ladder.

See how the girls cope with this situation on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of 2 Broke Girls @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Mike & Molly and Castle.

bones318smallI’m also really thrilled there’s a new episode of Bones on tonight. This season has been really great. Brennan and Booth still have a lot of fun bickering back and forth, and we still get the chemistry we’ve loved for all these seasons, but we also get a lot of “couple” stuff. Last week’s episode was a rough one. I felt so bad for the victim, Symchay Conteh, who had been a child soldier from Sierra Leone. He was murdered when he recognized the janitor in his building as one of the soldiers from back when he was a kid—it scared Symchay so bad to see the man there in the US, in the same building he lived in, that he went to speak to the man who helped refugees…and that man killed him to protect the program. It was really sad. 🙁 On a lighter note, Cam’s relationship with Arastoo has now come to light, and the biggest reactions were Hodgins’ & Angela’s relief that they didn’t have to keep it a secret anymore and Brennan’s confusion about why she hadn’t spotted the relationship (Hah!). It’ll be interesting to see how that goes from now on…now that everyone knows.

On tonight’s episode, “The Doom in the Gloom,” when the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of a former Marine sergeant whose body was found burned to ash, they discover that she was discharged after a fist fight with another Marine and had an obsession with the idea of the apocalypse. Sweets thinks he has landed his dream apartment.

See if Sweets actually moves out tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Continuum, Dancing with the Stars, How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement, 2 Broke Girls, The Following, Mike & Molly, Diners, Drive-in & Dives, & Hawaii Five-0.

continuum318smallTonight is the season finale of Continuum. Last week, a bulk purchase of fertilizer at the Roland’s farm triggered an investigation by the police. Julian and his friends panicked and took everyone hostage, including Carlos and Kiera. Meanwhile, Alec managed to smuggle Kiera her suit, which she used to get the situation under control. However, the police used the chaos as an excuse to shoot and kill Roland.

This has been such a great show, and I’m so glad it’s been picked up for a second season! At the end of last week’s episode, Julian was headed to Liber8. What will he do to get revenge for his father’s death? Will Kiera make it back to the future? I can’t wait for tonight’s explosive season finale!

On tonight’s season finale, “Endtimes,” Kiera races to stop an imminent terrorist attack, and Alec gets kidnapped by Liber8 after learning his stepbrother, Julian, is under their sway.

To see if Kiera can stop the attack and if Alec gets out alive, tune in to Syfy at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Continuum @ TV.com.

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