If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/17/13

Happy Wednesday, everybody. How’s your week going so far? Good? Good! Mine’s going okay, too. 😀 It’s a pretty slow night for mid-week TV, but we’ve all got opinions on what you should be watching, so let’s get to it. 😉

psych417smallLast week’s Psych was great. Lassie and the group went to Vegas for his and Marlowe’s bachelor & bachelorette parties—at which we met his “best friend” who turned out not to truly be his best friend and a big douche, and where we got to see the chief drunk off her…behind. Then Marlowe got cold feet and ended up kidnapped by the bad guy, and when he & Lassie made arrangements to exchange the bad guy’s accountant that Lassie had in custody for Marlowe, neither side brought the right person, so they came to an agreement, which was just too funny. Then the actual wedding got interrupted, Marlowe wore a red dress, and we learned she had some kick-ass moves… In the end, they did end up tying the knot. It was cute. BUT… At the reception, Jules figured out that Shawn wasn’t really psychic, that he’d been lying the entire time, not just to the chief & the rest of the department, but to her, as well. Crazy!

Is this the end to Shawn & Juliet? I don’t see how she can tell Lassie or Chief Vick, because that would really signal the end of the series… But can she forgive him for lying in the first place and not telling her the truth when they finally got together and even after they moved in together? Eek. 🙁

On tonight’s episode, “Right Turn or Left for Dead,” Shawn solves a case involving a mysterious Swedish woman and imagines how the same case would have been solved had he done one thing differently. Kurt Fuller, Lauriane Gillieron, & Rose Abdoo guest star.

To see how Shawn & Juliet are doing after last week’s major revelation, tune in to USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Psych @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How to Live with Your Parents (the Rest of Your Life) & The Americans.

duckdynastysmallIt’s a slow night for TV, but at least I have Duck Dynasty to keep me amused. 🙂 Every time I watch this show, I giggle—these boys are hilarious. I was watching a rerun last night and crying from laughing. In the episode, Willie and Jase wanted their wives to be more redneck and less “yuppie,” so they took them deer hunting. Well, Jase’s wife ended up painted in mud, and Willie’s wife accidentally sprayed herself with deer urine—needless to say, no deer were bagged, and I don’t think they’ll be going hunting again anytime soon.

On tonight’s episode, “Battle of the Brothers,” Jase suspects Willie is experiencing a midlife crisis, leading to a competition amongst the Robertson brothers; Miss Kay convinces Phil that they need a cat when mice invade the house.

To see how the brothers handle this battle, tune in to A&E at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Duck Dynasty @ TV.com.

I’m also watching Suburgatory, The Americans, and Off Pitch.

southland417smallTonight, another short season of TNT’s Southland comes to an end. In last week’s extremely tense episode, Cooper and Lucero were checking out a disturbance in an abandoned building when they were abducted, stripped, and held hostage by some meth-heads. The drug-induced paranoia got to the kidnappers, and they beat and killed John’s partner. They were making Cooper dig the graves when he managed to escape. Meanwhile, Bryant wouldn’t let go of his mission to get vengeance for the gang break-in at his home; and Sherman grew more nervous that the truth would be discovered about what he had done to help his friend.

Last week was such an amazing episode—filled with real threats and emotion. What I love about this show is that no one ever feels truly safe, so you really had no idea if Cooper was going to survive his ordeal. This is a such a great show that’s often overlooked, and it receives such small number of episodes each season—even though it’s in its fifth season, tonight is only the show’s 43rd episode! Sadly, tonight is likely the final episode of the series, seeing as many of the cast members have already signed on for new pilots. While I would normally say I hope everything gets wrapped up, I don’t think that’s realistic or even necessary for a show like this. I’m just hoping for at least one final solid hour of drama as good as last week’s episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Reckoning,” John deals with fallout from his kidnapping; Sammy draws closer to robbers; and Lydia tracks John’s kidnappers while becoming more intimate with an old friend.

See how the season (or series) ends tonight on TNT at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Southland @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Suburgatory, How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), The Americans, Psych, and Forever Young.

suburgatory417asmallHonestly, there have been some parts in season 2 of Suburgatory that I didn’t really love, but the revelations about Dalia, George, and Tessa over the last few episodes have been great and are really working towards what could become a stellar and confrontational season finale. There are two episodes tonight, including that finale, and it’s yet to be renewed for a third season. Will tonight’s finale be it? We’ll see soon!

suburgatory417bsmallOn tonight’s first half hour, “Apocalypse Meow,” Dallas offers to help George tell Tessa that he’s sold their house and that they’re combining residences, but it doesn’t go as planned. The rift between Dalia and Tessa widens as Dalia goes out of her way to make Tessa miserable and Tessa seeks break-up revenge. Meanwhile, Noah obsesses over Carmen even though she’s dating his therapist.

On the second half hour, on “Stray Dogs,” Sheila launches a chastity campaign in Chatswin and convinces Mr. Wolfe to throw a Chastity Ball at the high school, assuming that Lisa will be crowned queen of the ball. Meanwhile George buys a house for Dallas and receives a visit from her ex-husband, and Tessa sets up residence in her bathroom stall at school.

See how Tessa deals with all the changes on ABC at 8/7c and 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Suburgatory @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching The Real World.
