If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/2/13

I never thought I’d be glad it was Monday, but I am. There’s some great new TV on, and we’re here to give you our thoughts on what we think is can’t miss. 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

castle41smallIt’s Castle Monday, people! That excites me more than you can possibly imagine. Last week, the focus was on Ryan, when he went back into an undercover assignment that he’d been in years before for fourteen months with the Irish mob in Staten Island. It got a little hairy there for a while, but the way he called out Esposito, Beckett, and Castle (LOL) was great—even though I agree with several people that…he gave the bad guys his REAL NAME. That would have been a bad idea in real life because even from prison, they could have found a way to get to him and his family. Speaking of… It was no great shock that Ryan’s wife Jenny is pregnant, but it was sweet all the same.

Tonight is the 100th episode of the show, and I’ve already seen it. Unlike Psych’s 100th episode last week, which I didn’t think was nearly as good as the hype claimed it would be (for a 100th episode OR for the Clue-theme…), tonight’s Castle is fantastic. There was great “case” stuff (in fact, more than one case…), some adorable relationship stuff, and great family stuff with Castle & Alexis especially. It truly made me laugh and smile the whole episode, and I’m looking forward to seeing it again tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “The Lives of Others,” when Castle is unable to work on a case due to a broken leg, he believes that he witnesses the murder of a woman in the apartment building across the street and is thrown into a murder mystery similar to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window.

Don’t miss the fun and excitement tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ TV.com.

beinghuman41smallBeing Human has been so good this season! Last week, Aiden helped Kenny escape the hospital for one day as a real teen before he turned him. Josh and Nora moved up their wedding since things didn’t look good for Sally. Josh’s sister returned to town, and she, Aiden, and Kenny took Josh out for a bachelor party. However, when Josh’s sister witnessed Aiden dusting a vampire stripper, Josh explained the truth about his situation. Meanwhile, Sally had a bachelorette party with Sally—although Sally was locked in her room the whole time for fear that she wouldn’t be able to control her hunger.

I really love how they’ve shaken things up this season—with Sally going from ghost to human to zombie, and Josh going from werewolf to human to werewolf. I’m also really enjoying the Kenny story line. Will the gang be able to find the witch who turned Sally, and will they be able to stop her? Will Aiden have trouble keeping Kenny on the straight and narrow as his change sets in? I can’t wait for tonight’s penultimate episode of the season!

On tonight’s episode, “Always a Bridesmaid, Never Alive,” Aidan, Sally, and Josh prepare to battle Donna, and Kenny awakens, but things don’t work out as planned.

See what happens to Kenny tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Being Human @ TV.com.

I’ll be watching/recording Castle, Revolution, Bones, The Following, The Carrie Diaries, and Bates Motel.

JJ’s Choice

revolution41smallLast week, Revolution returned to the small screen, luckily without too big a dip in ratings. I liked the episode, but I think I expected more from the first new episode back after the break, although some parts were very nice. For instance, Randall teaming up with Monroe and Rachel cutting up the body of her dead son to retreive an electronic device. But the Big Death lacked emotional punch (probably because of the break?), and the helicopter scenes seemed like a poor excuse for three action scenes without swords.

On tonight’s episode, “Ghosts,” the loss of Danny devastates everyone, and they must carry on with heavy hearts and increased resolve. Miles sets out on a mission with Nora to recruit his former Militia comrade Jim Hudson, while Rachel looks for a power source and a way back into the heart of her daughter and also attempts to elude the group from Randall’s grip.

Find out if Rachel and Miles succeed on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Revolution @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Lost Girl, and Castle.

Jenny’s Choice #2

bones41smallI also want to recommend tonight’s episode of Bones because it looks like it’ll be a good one. Last week was a hard case for Booth. He always has trouble when it looks like a cop is dirty, and last week was no exception. I liked the way Bones stood by him even when he went a little nuts on the girl who had her foot cut off—he was trying to figure out where her partner was, but she wasn’t answering.

On tonight’s episode, “The Maiden in the Mushrooms,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of a TV producer. Brennan has trouble accepting that Christine might be more average than she thought when she is accused of biting another student. Hodgins uses his tools to recreate Finn’s hot sauce. Allison Scagliotti (Warehouse 13) guest stars.

To see if Hodgins can figure out the recipe, 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, & The Following.
