If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/25/13

Today, my baby boy turns 2. I get that this makes him more of a toddler and less of a baby, but frankly, I don’t want to talk about it. Pherson is a constant joy, from his moments of random dancing, to the way he is a one-man wrecking crew when it comes to blocks and cars. He loves to cuddle, and I melt every time he says (screams) “Mommy.” I get that this is a good thing, him growing up (and…well…me managing to keep him alive this long—harder than it looks, people!), but he will now and forever be my baby. Happy birthday, Pherson! Now, while I grab a tissue and dab away my tears filled with mixed emotions, let’s talk about what you should be watching tonight.

thevoice2013smallPlease tell me I am not the only one excited for another new season of The Voice. I am not only excited because I have loved the format of this singing competition show from the moment it hit the air, but also because we’re changing up the judges this installment and we’re getting to see the sexy Usher and the gorgeous Shakira (and her hips) sit in the chairs of Christina and CeeLo. Now, I’m going to miss CeeLo, but not really going to miss Christina. She was getting on my last nerve. (Still not as annoying as Mariah on American Idol, though.) Truth be told, with Usher, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton there to watch, I may get too distracted to hear the singing—that is A LOT of talent-oozing sexiness to watch in one show. Besides the sexiness of the judges, I am still looking forward to the banter between them and hopefully seeing some amazing talent hit the stage.

On tonight’s 2-hour episode, “The Blind Audition Premiere,” vocalists hit the stage to perform for the panel of four judges.

See if season 4 brings the talent starting tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Voice @ TV.com.

bones325smallMy favorite episode of Bones last week was Booth getting slimed when Hodgins was setting up an experiment to figure out how the victim was killed with a gun that shot fire. Booth looked so shocked, Hodgins looked absolutely amused, and Cam didn’t even want to know. It was fantastic. The whole episode was great…and kind of sad. And the whole thing with Booth and Bones being sure Sweets wouldn’t move out was so sweet. And then when Sweets’s new roommates came to pick him up, I totally called that they were hot women, and that’s why he was so excited about where he was moving to. Booth & Bones are truly going to miss him.

On tonight’s episode, “The Blood from the Stones,” an undercover police officer, who was investigating a string of ATM robberies, turns up dead in a van with a bag of diamonds found inside his mutilated body. So the Jeffersonian team must figure out whether or not the ATM robbers are also murderers, or if the cop was crooked. Meanwhile, Brennan is the subject of a documentary commissioned to raise funds for the Jeffersonian, and she struggles to be likeable on camera.

To see if Brennan succeeds, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Bones @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 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, & Castle.

revolution325smallTonight, we’ll finally find out if NBC’s decision to give Revolution a 4-month hiatus in order to keep it paired with The Voice was a smart one. When we last saw the powerless gang, they had made their way to Monroe’s base, where several of them were captured. Charlie learned the truth about her mother and was ultimately reunited with Danny, Nora, and Aaron. Meanwhile, Miles and Monroe came face to face and fought with swords until Monroe ran away. As our 6 heroes ran from the explosion of the base, a helicopter came to life (thanks to the amplifier Rachel had created for Monroe) and started chasing them down.

IMO, this 4-month hiatus was a terrible decision—I could barely even remember what happened in the first half of the season. It was really building momentum before it came to a long halt, and I really hope the delay doesn’t kill the show. I was really enjoying it, so I hope tonight, they can quickly bring us back up to speed and then ramp up the excitement.

On tonight’s episode, “The Stand,” Miles leads the rebels away from Philadelphia to escape Monroe’s helicopters and machine guns; Rachel attempts to redeem herself by providing power to the rebels; romance sparks between Miles and Nora.

To see if the action picks right back up where it left off, tune in to NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Revolution @ TV.com.

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

castle325smallLast week was a classic “ridiculous” Castle to balance the whole two-parter madness we got the episodes before it. I alway love how the episode after a two-parter is a bit more quiet, but is always quite believable in its ridiculousness. It must be an awesome process for the writers to come up with these episodes. With the killer last week freezing the faces of her victims, it really was spooky to see the bodies.

We are now getting into the last leg of the season (as with a lot of shows), and I feel like we’re heading towards a Caskett-reveal to the world at the end of the season, maybe even with the risk of them not being able to work together afterwards? That would be an excruciating summer!

On tonight’s episode, “The Wild Rover,” Castle and Beckett trace a murder to an Irish gang in Staten Island and a bar owner named Siobhan. Much to everyone’s surprise, it turns out Detective Ryan has a complicated history with Siobhan and the Staten Island crime family from his days undercover in narcotics. But when the case hits a dead end, Ryan must once again go back undercover, complicating his relationship with his wife.

See if Ryan succeeds in finding the killer on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching The Voice (yay!), 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Lost Girl, and Revolution (even more yay!!).

Megan’s Choice #2

hawaiifiveo325smallTonight, I had to recommend two shows, because my television boyfriend, Alex O’Loughlin, is back with another new episode of Hawaii Five-0. (Shh… I know it’s only fictional—I am not insane. Just don’t wreck my imaginary bliss.) This is a show that I not only love the cast, but have never seen an episode that I didn’t enjoy. It’s a police drama set in Hawaii… What’s not to love?

Last episode, we watched as Catherine went undercover as a roller derby girl and was pretty good at it, too. They caught the skeezy coach after photos of the players half naked and drugged were found on his computer. He was nasty. We also saw Doris’s house get broken into, and her files from her time as an operative got stolen out of her safe. Unfortunately, we also learned that Doris confided a secret to Catherine and she kept it from Steve. That almost cost them their relationship. Luckily, Steve is smarter and sweeter than most pigheaded men and went to Catherine to patch things up. That scene at the end melted me completely. *sigh*

On tonight’s episode, “Hoa Pili,” the team struggles to narrow down a suspect when threats against a company who endangers sharks turn deadly; Kamekona tries to earn his helicopter license.

To see if the big guy can learn to fly, 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, Mike & Molly, and Bates Motel.
