If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/31/13

Happy Easter! I hope the Easter bunny brought you lots of delicious chocolate and you got spoiled with an over abundance of family time. (Don’t worry… Everyone is happy when their family goes home. You’re not alone.) While we come down from the sugar highs—I love those mini-eggs—let’s see what you can watch tonight.

thebible331smallThe Bible has been a delight for our eyes, our minds, and our hearts. Tonight, it comes to an end. I have thoroughly enjoyed the beloved Biblical stories coming to life on my screen, and I’ll miss it when it’s over. Mark Burnett and Roma Downey did a fabulous job with this series, and I’m looking forward to also purchasing it on DVD to enjoy over and over.

On tonight’s episode, “Passion/Courage,” after Peter denies Jesus and Judas ends his own life, crowds seek Jesus’s crucifixion, but his shocking resurrection from the dead sparks a new movement of faith as Paul, John, and others speak of Christ’s return, only to be met with hatred and death.

To watch the true meaning behind Easter, tune in to the History Channel at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Bible @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Cupcake Wars, The Amazing Race, and Vikings.

thewalkingdead331smallTonight, The Walking Dead ends its third season. Last week, Merle kidnapped Michonne and was taking her to the Governor, when he had a change of heart and set her free. She walked back to the prison and told the rest of the gang what happened. Meanwhile, Merle set up a diversion using a car horn to attract a swarm of walkers into the Governor’s planned ambush. He was using the chaos to hide his sniping of the Governor’s men, when the Governor figured out what was happening and found and killed Merle. When Daryl arrived at the farm, he discovered Merle had turned and broke down crying as he took his brother out.

I can’t wait for tonight’s season finale, and I really hope Rick and the gang finally kill the Governor. Will they go after him at Woodbury, or will they secure the prison and wait for the Governor to attack? Either way, one side needs to make a big move. I’m sure we’ll probably lose another character tonight—I just hope Glenn and Maggie survive the season!

On tonight’s finale, “Welcome to the Tombs,” with the Governor’s attack looming, Rick and his people need to determine if the prison is worth defending.

See who is left standing tonight on AMC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Walking Dead @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Good Wife, Mr. Selfridge, Worst Cooks in America, Chopped, Vikings, Doctor Who: The Companions, Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited, Game of Thrones, and Shameless.

gameofthrones331smallI couldn’t be more excited that Game of Thrones is returning tonight. It took me some time to get back into what had happened at the end of season 2, because after the awesome Blackwater episode, there was “Valar Morhulis,” where a lot of things happened, which was also a lot of set up for the season we are getting tonight. But I will try to recap for you anyway. Tyrion was banished and cut up after Blackwater and returned to his status of the black sheep. Joffrey fled from the battle, but retained his position as king and traded Sansa Stark for Margaery Tyrell as his wife-to-be. Khaleesi found her dragons again, torching the warlock that stole them, and planned to steal Xaro’s (the king of Qarth) riches to buy a fleet of ships to return to King’s Landing. Theon Greyjoy was apparently killed after a great speech to rally the troops. Rob Stark married Lady Talisa, ignoring his mothers wishes to marry a Frey. Brienne was traveling with Lannister and took out three members of the Stark army. And Arya said goodbye to Jaqen H’ghar, one of the Faceless Men, giving up the change to become a stealthy miller herself. And then we got the shot of the huge army of the White Walkers mounting for their attack against those North of the Wall.

The second season of was a little less focused than the first season, especially because of the huge cast and the amount of locations they have to service. I’m not sure that this will improve in the third season, but Blackwater was a nice example of how an episode can just deal with one location and the characters in that location and really be awesome.

On tonight’s episode, “Valar Dohaeris,” Jon is brought before Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, while the Night’s Watch survivors retreat south. In King’s Landing, Tyrion asks for his rewards, Littlefinger offers Sansa a way out, and Cersei hosts a dinner for the royal family. Also, Daenerys sails into Slaver’s Bay.

See the exciting start to the new season tonight on HBO at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Game of Thrones @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Revenge and The Walking Dead.
