If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/23/13

After a dramatic episode of Bones last night, my nerves are absolutely raw. Couple that with spending hundreds of dollars on clothes & shoes for my sister’s wedding at the end of May, and I’m reading to relax with some great television tonight, so let’s see what’s on, shall we? 🙂

ncis423smallThis season of NCIS has been an emotional one. The last episode was no different. A Navy reservist came home to find blood, a ransacked house, and a missing husband. I figured out before they did that the husband’s disappearance was a setup. He’d arranged for it so he could get away with money he’d stolen, and he killed the man who’d helped him in the process. When the wife confronted her husband, my heart broke. She was so angry and so hurt, and it showed. On the Ziva story, Tony found out that McGee has been helping her track Ilan Bodner, the man responsible for her father’s and Director Vance’s wife’s death. Ziva finally went to Gibbs to tell him everything she’d been doing, said she’d tracked Bodner to somewhere in Europe. In the end, he told her to take Tony and go find them. That’s against the CIA’s directive, but none of them, including Vance, care. It’ll be interesting to see if Tony & Ziva grow closer and if they find Bodner this week…

On tonight’s episode, “Berlin,” while the NCIS team investigates the murder of a Mossad officer in Virginia, Tony and Ziva depart for Berlin as they track her father’s killer. Oded Fehr, Alan Dale, & Marina Sirtis (Orli Elbaz, the new Massad Director) guest star.

To see if Tony and Ziva can find their man, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, 19 Kids & Counting, Counting Cars, NCIS: LA, Who Gets the Last Laugh, & Body of Proof.

hellskitchen2013smallChef Ramsay has really been hard on the Hell’s Kitchen contestants this season—it’s necessary and amusing to watch. Last episode, we watched as he put Ray, Dan, Mary, and Nedra on probation, telling them they had to earn their jackets back. The men finally won a challenge, earning Ray and Dan their jackets back. The women had stellar performances on appetizers, earning Mary and Nedra their jackets back. This was the turning point for both kitchens, and service started to go downhill from here for both teams. In the end, both teams had to nominate people, but Jessica was sent home for her terrible work on the fish station.

I’m still not sure who I’m cheering for, but I do know that I like the way Ramsay is interacting and really trying to the get the teams to work together better.

On tonight’s episode, “14 Chefs Compete,” in the farm fresh challenge, each member from the Red and Blue teams must enter an animal pen to determine which type of protein they will cook in the team challenge. Chef Jon Shook will judge alongside Chef Ramsay to determine which team will go on a VIP trip to an aquarium and which team will stay behind to clean and feed animals for Hell’s Kitchen’s petting zoo. Pressure mounts during Family Night dinner service, as the contestants must not only impress the regulars, but Chef Ramsay’s family, as well. In a lopsided dinner service, one team soars while the other wallows, forcing the losing team to put two of their own team members up for elimination.

To see who fails to make the grade this week, tune in to FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hell’s Kitchen @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: LA, Body of Proof, The Voice, New Girl, The Mindy Project, and Hart of Dixie.

hartofdixie423smallTuesdays have become a desolate night of TV, but one show I’m still enjoying is Hart of Dixie. Last week, George and Zoe agreed to play Romeo and Juliet in the town’s ode to iconic Shakespeare scenes, but had second thoughts about the kissing scene. After the kiss, Zoe said she didn’t feel anything—though she seemed a bit upset at the news that George and Tansy were going to move in together. Meanwhile, Lemon and Wayne struggled to hire a staff and get their liquor license for the Rammer Jammer; and Brick revealed a secret to Shelby.

So what is Brick’s big secret? Will Zoe once again go after George now that he’s taken? Are they going to try to hook Wade and Lemon up now that they own the business together? There are just a few episodes left this season—I hope Zoe will give up on George and get back with Wade, as I really liked those two together!

On tonight’s episode, “If Tomorrow Never Comes,” Brick’s love life suffers after a secret about him gets out. Meanwhile, Zoe tries to share her feelings, but she has bad timing; Wade and Lemon’s working relationship gets off to a rocky start; and George looks after Tansy’s reckless brothers.

See what secret Brick’s hiding tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Hart of Dixie @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording Body of Proof and Hell’s Kitchen.

awkward2013smallLast week, we got the season premiere of Awkward, and it had a lot of things that were great. Sarcastic Sadie (“Oh, and you’re welcome.”), Tamara and Jake returning from France and being obnoxiously annoying, and the very MTV-like pregnancy scare. But I was very glad that this remained just a scare. It would’ve probably taken over the show.

On tonight’s episode, “A Little Less Conversation,” Matty is distant after he finds out about Jenna’s pregnancy scare; Jenna will do almost anything to avoid having “the talk.”

See if Matty comes around tonight on MTV at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Awkward @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching The Voice.
