If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/3/13

The best part of long weekends is how quickly the next week seems to go. Hard to believe it’s already Wednesday, but I couldn’t be happier. What can I say? I love the weekend! 🙂 While I count the hours until Friday is upon us, let’s look at what you should be watching on TV tonight.

Megan’s Choice

howtolivewithyourparentssmallTonight is the series premiere of How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life), and let me tell you, it’s worth checking out. We’ve all seen the pilot (Jenny, Kyle, and myself), and overall, we all enjoyed it. I find myself relating to Polly (Sarah Chalke) more than I realized, and we all have or know parents like hers. (Perhaps I should have considered therapy… Just saying.)

The premise of the show is Polly is a single mom who gets a divorce and moves in with her parents to help with the economic transition. Polly wants to be an involved parent, where Max (Brad Garrett) and Elaine (Elizabeth Perkins) are old-school 1970’s parents who would rather let children learn from their mistakes than be too involved. From her childish ex-husband to the inappropriate conversations at the table, this show makes me giggle and also makes me very glad I no longer live with my parents. You’ll laugh and be oddly disturbed all at once—it’s television at its best!

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” when Polly moved in with her eccentric parents post-divorce, she told herself it wasn’t forever. Now, a year later, it’s feeling like a life sentence.

To check out this quirky new comedy, tune in to ABC at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, CSI, Law & Order: SVU, Chicago Fire, Spies of Warsaw, and of course, Duck Dynasty.

Jenny’s Choice

criminalminds43smallThe team on Criminal Minds is no closer to figuring out who The Replicator is. On the last new episode, two long weeks ago, it was all about the women who were very active in social media and their deaths at the hand of some psycho writer/therapist dude. It was a pretty good episode—aside from the whole “Garcia is desperate to get laid by an old flame” thing. I’m getting tired of having no good Morgan/Garcia stuff anymore. I have friends who swear they see good stuff happening and who are sure it’s leading up to a big Morgan/Garcia relationship…but I just don’t see it. Maybe I’m secretly expecting the worst so I’ll be surprised when it happens? Or maybe I’m just a realist. LOL Who knows. 😉

Tonight’s episode is one I’ve been looking forward to for a while, ever since I first heard about it. We learned about Morgan’s past a long time ago, when it was the focus of one episode. It was such a huge story that coming back around to it is brilliant, in my opinion. I mean, we spent ages on Haley Hotchner, The Repear, and his killing her, which was fine, but I want more Morgan. 😉 So hopefully, tonight will be a great one.

On tonight’s episode, “Restoration,” the BAU goes to Morgan’s old neighborhood in urban Chicago in search of an UnSub targeting middle-aged men, and a clue leads Morgan to believe that they are after someone connected to the man who molested him as a child. Skipp Sudduth (The Good Wife, Third Watch) returns as Captain Stan Gordinski, who helps the team with the investigation, and Julius Tennon (Lonesome Dove) reprises his role as Carl Buford, the man who abused Morgan as a child.

Do not miss it tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Criminal Minds @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life), Chicago Fire, The Americans, CSI, & Psych.

Kyle’s Choice

spiesofwarsaw43smallTonight, BBC America kicks off the 2-part mini-series, Spies of Warsaw, which is based on the 2008 spy novel by Alan Furst. This thriller takes place in 1937, during events leading up to World War II as tensions rise between French and German intelligence organizations. Colonel Jean-Francois Mercier (David Tennant, Doctor Who), a decorated war hero turned military attaché at the French embassy in Poland, finds himself sucked into a world of abduction, betrayal, and espionage. And his situation becomes more complicated when he gets involved with Anna Skarbek (Janet Montgomery), a Parisian lawyer for the League of Nations.

All they had to say was “espionage thriller starring the tenth doctor,” and I was sold—I’m looking forward to checking this out tonight!

On tonight’s episode, Mercier falls for a beautiful Parisian lawyer and inadvertently discovers what the Germans are planning.

See the two-hour part one of two tonight on BBC America at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Spies of Warsaw @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Arrow, Supernatural, The Americans, Nashville, Southland, Psych, and Forever Young.

JJ’s Choice

modernfamily43smallLast week’s episode of Modern Family had a great A-story, but I didn’t care too much for the rest of what the Dunphy clan was up to. With both Cam and Claire trying to trump the other in their plans for the house, their flipping was hilarious. Especially with the lengths both went to trying to impress Pam. I always love how characters return, and a sparingly used Pam is apparantly always good.

On tonight’s episode, “The Future Dunphys,” Phil and Claire meet their future selves while in the hospital for an angiogram for Claire, but they’re not sure they like what they see. Meanwhile, Manny drags Jay on a visit to a prospective private school, and Mitch and Cam organize a fun “girls day” for Gloria and Lily, but it becomes a cultural day instead.

Find out what’s in store for them on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Modern Family @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, Arrow, and Suburgatory.
