If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/9/13

There’s so much great TV on right now that it’s tough to keep up. For every show that ends its season, there seems to be another new or returning show ready to take its place. For example, tonight is the season finale of Two and a Half Men and Glee, but also the season premieres of Wipeout and Small Town Security. I highly recommend checking out tonight’s hilarious episode of The Graham Norton Show with guests Chris Pine, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kim Cattral, and Bonnie Tyler, but here are some additional things we suggest you tune in to this evening…

community59smallThis Dan Harmon-less season of Community hasn’t felt all that different to me. It’s had its ups and downs, just like the three prior seasons. Last week, we got the origin stories of the Greendale study-group members—including the genesis of Magnitude’s “Pop Pop” catchphrase—and learned that their lives have crossed paths before. It seems that their fates were destined to come together. Meanwhile, Chang was plotting to destroy Greendale, but had a “chang” of heart once he was welcomed into the study group. We discovered that Chang had been working with the head of City College.

Tonight’s episode could very well be the series finale, as NBC has made no announcement yet as to the show’s fate. I’m a little concerned if they are revisiting the darkest timeline—they may be trying to squeeze too much into a series finale. Will everything be wrapped up in case tonight is the final episode? Is the plot with City College over, or has it already been set in motion? Will Jeff graduate, and if so, what happens if the show continues for another season? I’m interested to see where they leave things tonight with the fate of the series unknown.

On tonight’s episode, “Advanced Introduction to Finality,” Jeff ponders the future after he receives enough credits to graduate. Elsewhere, the group revisit the darkest timeline.

See the season (or series?) finale tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Community, The Office, Hannibal, Glee, Giving You the Business, Men at Work, The Graham Norton Show, and Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous.

personofinterest59smallThe Machine is going crazy on Person of Interest because of the virus. Last week, Finch actually had John arrested to get him out of the way, and Sam Shaw turned up (after leaving him to be arrested alone), pretending to be his lawyer, in order to break him out. Meanwhile, Root forced Finch to stick with her under the threat of killing his ex-love. She also wants the Machine to stay up, although her reason is different than theirs. At the end, Root intercepted the phone call from the Machine, but Finch was able to route it to John, as well, so Root isn’t the only one with access after the Machine rebooted itself, thank goodness. A LOT more happened (for a great recap, check out TV.com), but one last noteworthy moment was Carter being set up by HR. Was the guy supposed to kill her, but when that didn’t happen because a guy ran out the back of the house and Carter shot him, he set her up to take the fall about shooting an “unarmed” man (although as Carter and the audience know, he WAS armed)? Crazy stuff all leading up to tonight’s finale.

On tonight’s episode, “God Mode,” Reese & Finch team up with surprising allies in a race to save the Machine from Root and the mysterious international organization Decima, who have both re-emerged with dangerous agendas. As the POI team faces off against enemies old and new, the nature of Finch’s relationship with former partner Nathan Ingram is revealed, along with his original motivation for wanting to save the Machine’s irrelevant numbers. Meanwhile, in her mission to bring Cal Beecher’s murderer to justice, Detective Carter finds herself up against HR. Carrie Preston, Amy Acker, Sarah Shahi, Brett Cullen, Jay O. Sanders, & Enrico Colantoni guest star.

To see all the tense excitement of tonight’s finale, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory (which I’ve already seen and LOVED, btw), Two and a Half Men, Men at Work, & Elementary.

greysanatomy59smallGrey’s Anatomy has had a pretty eventful season, with lots of changes. Last episode was filled with emotional roller coasters, but also the welcomed appearance by Hilarie Burton (One Tree Hill). Hilarie’s character Lauren is a specialist who is there to help a baby whose brain is growing on the outside—but she also manages to get under Arizona’s skin. There were some interesting cases, including a magician’s assistant who was sawed in half by a chain saw and a college student who drank a drink that had liquid nitrogen in it. That’s just insane.

There were some touching moments for a lot of characters, including where Jo showed up at Alex’s door after her boyfriend had beaten her—at the core of things, Alex is always someone’s knight in shining armour. Also, watching Ben comfort Bailey and help her through her grief was so sweet and really said a lot for the relationship these two have.

On tonight’s episode, “Readiness is All,” the doctors prepare for a super storm headed for Seattle; as Owen becomes closer to Ethan, his desire to be a parent gets stronger; Meredith and her baby are put in danger.

To see how Christina handles Owen’s biological clock, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Person of Interest, Elementary, Community, Wipeout, Glee, and Giving You the Business.

tbbt59smallLast week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory was so boring, I really have to vent my frustration. The guest star was used quite boringly, Penny was more dumb than she has ever been, and Raj and Cinnamon are just a big no. So I’m very curious about this new episode!

On tonight’s episode, “The Love Spell Potential,” the girls’ trip to Vegas falls through, causing the guys to invite them over for a game of Dungeons & Dragons, causing Sheldon and Amy’s relationship to take an unexpected turn. Meanwhile, Raj and Lucy go on a very awkward date.

See how Sheldon and Amy cope on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, Community, The Vampire Diaries, Wipeout, and Glee.
