If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/28/13

It’s been a weekend filled with sunshine and outdoor fun around here. Thank goodness spring finally decided to come visit! I saw the most amazing woodpecker the other day outside my house, and because I was so distracted with the sunshine, I wasn’t even upset at the incessant tapping. 🙂 Let’s see what we have on TV tonight to keep up my happy spring attitude up.

tarsmallThe Amazing Race is down to the final 5 teams again after last week being a non-elimination round. Max & Katie came in first again, and honestly, I wasn’t happy—I do not like them AT ALL. The country girls are terrible at following, because when the hockey brothers went through a yellow light, the girls fell back. FYI, I would have floored it to keep up with the boys if traffic was clear. On the other hand, the boys were stepping all over people’s toes last episode. I’m still unsure of who I want to win, but I know for sure I don’t want Max & Katie winning, due to the level they annoy me.

On tonight’s episode, “Working Our Barrels Off,” the teams storm a castle. They’ll need strong stomachs, strong backs, and a lot of hot air.

To see which teams make the cut for the top 4, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Amazing Race @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Once Upon a Time, The Good Wife, Vikings, Chopped, The Client List, and Cupcake Wars.

thegoodwife428smallI’m really excited for tonight’s The Good Wife season finale (and so happy it has been renewed for another season). Last week, Alicia unwittingly got the firm involved in a contract dispute lawsuit, and in the process accidentally inspired the firm’s assistants to form a union. Meanwhile, Kalinda weighed her own options and secretly pitted Lockhart/Gardner and Cary’s potential new firm in a bidding war for her services. Also, Peter asked Alicia to renew their vows; and Alicia played dirty in a TV interview for Peter’s campaign.

It was so great seeing Mamie Gummer back on the show last week (I still miss Emily Owens, M.D.)—hopefully she’ll become more of a regular now that she’s without a show. I can’t wait to see what kind of cliffhanger we’ll be left with tonight. Who will win the election? Will Cary announce he is leaving to start he own firm, and who will he take with him? Will Kalinda or Alicia also leave Lockhart/Gardner to join him? And will Alicia stay with her husband or pursue a relationship with Will?

On tonight’s episode, “What’s in the Box?,” Zach believes he witnessed vote tampering, which results in Alicia attending emergency court proceedings with Peter’s gubernatorial election. Meanwhile, an unlikely source offers Cary aid to start his own firm; and Alicia is forced to face her conflicted feelings in her personal and professional lives.

See what choices Cary and Alicia make tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Good Wife @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Mentalist, Once Upon a Time, The Cleveland Show, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Chopped, Mad Men, Vikings, Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited, Game of Thrones, Veep, and Nurse Jackie.

veepsmallI loved Veep during the first season. The cast is great, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus is amazing as Selina, especially when she gets to yell at her team. The second season seemed to have upped the stakes since the President appears to need Selina to get re-elected. Great improvement on an already very-solid comedy.

On tonight’s episode, “Hostages,” a hostage crisis in Uzbekistan creates issues between Selina and the Secretary of Defense at the Marine Corps Base at Quantivo. Meanwhile Sue testifies at a concressional hearing on governmental efficiency, and Dan and Gary jockey for the Veep’s ear.

See who wins on HBO at 10:9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Veep @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching Once Upon a Time, Game of Thrones, and Revenge.
