If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/27/13

I can’t wait for this week to be over because it’s a long weekend ahead of us, but also because I’m going to get to visit with my sister and family. My sister is truly one of the most amazing people I know, and since moving a few hours away, I don’t see her as often as I’d like, so you can be sure when she gets here Friday, it’s going to be a house full of giggles and goofiness. 🙂 Until then, I have some TV to amuse myself with, so let’s look at what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

duckdynastysmallWeek after week, I fall more in love with Duck Dynasty and ask myself what took me so long to find this awesome gem! I know there are haters out there (ahem…Kyle), but most of these haters haven’t even given the show a chance. I challenge you to sit down and watch one episode, and if after that episode, you still hate it…so be it. (I bet you won’t 🙂 )

There’s something endearing about these redneck duck hunters with their crazy beards and their odd work environment. Si is by far my favorite because his randomness makes me giggle all the time. Last week, watching him play the pinball machine was hilarious, because to him, everything is a competition. Also, the whole massage chair thing was so amusing. Willie always has to ruin Si’s fun… How dare he try to run the business. 😉

On tonight’s episode, “Ring around the Redneck,” Si uses his metal detector to help Jase locate his lost wedding ring, but soon becomes distracted by what he believes is buried treasure from his past.

To watch Si get distracted by shiny things, tune in to A&E at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Duck Dynasty @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, Suburgatory, Law & Order: SVU, and Restaurant Stakeout.

Jenny’s Choice

theneighbors327smallLast week’s episode of The Neighbors was a lot of fun. Debbie decided she needed to feel like she was contributing more to the family. During the family’s garage sale, a woman (“Housewife” Bethenny Frankel) loved her old purse she’d made and offered to buy more—a lot more. Unfortunately, Jackie got involved, and suddenly, Debbie was in way over her head. And at one point, Larry and Jackie, trying to help, put all the little girls in the troop to work in the “sweat shop” of the garage. It was hysterical. In the other part of the episode, Marty outed Amber’s feelings for Reggie. Reggie was shocked, but he covered it…well, I wouldn’t say he covered it well, but he covered it. *laugh* And Amber scoffed, claiming it wasn’t true…but Giselle’s claws came out after they were left alone, and she told Amber she wasn’t going anywhere…that Reggie was hers.

Tonight is the season finale—and if fans are unlucky, the series finale—and I’m quite upset about that. This show has been my number one surprise of this last season. I have more than loved every single episode, and I find all the characters to be as fun and fresh as the story lines. I can’t wait to see if Amber and Reggie admit they have feelings for one another, and I can’t wait to see if the aliens get a visit or contact from their home planet.

On tonight’s episode, “It Has Begun…” the Weavers take the Bird-Kersees to Atlantic City, where Marty learns that Larry Bird not only counts cards, he can see through them, and Jackie admits that she’s always wanted a human wedding. Meanwhile, Dick Butkus, in charge back home, gets an ominous call from his grandpa. The episode features two of science fiction’s biggest icons as guest stars: George Takei as Grandfather, and Mark Hamill as Commandant Bill.

To see if it’s time for the Zabvronians to return home, tune in to ABC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Neighbors @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Chicago Fire, Psych, & Restaurant Stakeout.

Kyle’s Choice

psych327smallTonight, Psych hits its milestone 100th episode. Last week, Shawn wanted his father and Juliet’s stepfather to become friends, so he set up a breakfast for the dads. Henry offered to pick up a package for Lloyd on his way to the diner, but soon found himself being chased by some men with guns. Henry learned that Lloyd’s meek accountant demeanor was hiding the fact that he had a gambling problem and owed some bad men a lot of money. Shawn, Gus, and Juliet searched for Henry, who had become an unwilling participant in Lloyd’s adventure through Mexico to deliver a package that would erase his debts.

In its seventh season, Psych is still as fun as it’s always been! While all the characters have developed and become a bit more mature over the past seven years, we haven’t lost any of those fun pop culture references or one-liners. In tonight’s 100th episode, the show does a parody of the movie Clue. Like the film, they have created multiple endings, and tonight, viewers will be able to vote on how the episode ends. For more details, check out USANetwork.com. Also, check out the interview with Maggie Lawson & Timothy Omundson here on TV Is My Pacifier.

On tonight’s episode, “100 Clues,” Shawn and Gus go to a secret party at a mansion owned by a former rock star who was once arrested for a murder he doesn’t remember committing. Christopher Lloyd, Lesley Ann Warren, Martin Mull, Curt Smith, Steve Valentine, & Garrett Morris guest star.

See the much-touted episode tonight on USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Psych @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, The Middle, The Neighbors, Modern Family, Suburgatory, Nashville, Whitney, Arrow, Supernatural, and Southland.

JJ’s Choice

whitney327smallTonight, we are getting two new episodes of Whitney, including the season finale. I know Whitney isn’t the most..euhm..widely accepted comedies out there, and I’m not convinced it’s the best one currently on air, but I do love it, and it’s high on my list of priorities somehow. I love the relationship between Whitney and Alex and how they are allowed to laugh when they are teasing each other. And the scenes between Mark and Roxanne are always funny.

On tonight’s first episode, “Alex, Meet Lily,” Whitney begs Alex to hang out with Lily because she is in need of a male friend. Alex reluctantly agrees, but ends up thoroughly enjoying Lily’s company. Meanwhile, to bring excitement back to Low Bar, Mark and R.J. start up a competitive game of darts. All goes well until Roxanne is accidentally struck in the back with a dart.

Then on “Cake, Cake, Cake,” Whitney spots her psychiatrist while on a walk through the park with Alex. Meanwhile R.J. sets Mark up on a date, causing Roxanne to admit her feeling for him.

Watch both episodes on NBC at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Whitney @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Arrow, American Idol, Modern Family, Suburgatory, and The Real World.
