If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/14/13

I’m not sure what kind of drugs Mother Nature is on, but whatever it is, she needs to stop! This weather is ridiculous up here in Canada—one minute, it’s warm, the next we have a frost warning. Hopefully the weather gets sorted out before next week when soccer season starts for my daughter. While I worry about whether or not the frost tonight is going to hurt my plants, let’s see what’s on TV that you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

sytycd2013smallGrab your tutus and tap shoes. It’s that time of year again… So You Think You Can Dance returns tonight! It’s no secret that I love this show or that I am full of opinions about contestants, judges, and choreographers alike. I’m looking forward to a brand new season and hopefully some awesome new routines that take our breath away. Of course, there’s also the fact that we get to watch all the auditions first, which is always so amusing. Nothing like watching some crazy person in spandex take the stage with the strong belief they can dance…but they can’t. (Especially when Adam Shankman is guest judging, because he is the WORST at controlling his facial expressions, and it makes me laugh every time.)

On tonight’s season premiere, “Audition City 1,” dancers perform for the judges.

To see who soars and who has two left feet, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA, NCIS, The Voice, Body of Proof, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Grimm, and Chopped.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice #1

ncisla514smallLast week’s NCIS: LA was a big one for Kensi and Deeks (& their shippers. 😉 ). Deeks went undercover as his former undercover persona, and the woman he “befriended” stole some diamonds from the bad guys he asked her to spy on at her job, which led to them being shot at. That’s how Kensi found out about the assignment and his “relationship” with the pretty, outgoing, but kinda crazy woman. In the end, I think Kensi realized she does indeed have feelings for him, and Deeks KNOWS he has feelings for her. At the end, Kensi got back to the office and found Deeks to give him an envelope from Hetty. He asked if she was okay. She said she was…but it was clearly an awkward moment between the two. They both know there’s something there, but neither has acknowledged it to the other or even, really, to themselves. When Kensi left, Deeks opened the envelope, which said simply: Sunshine and Gun powder. For those that don’t remember, earlier this season, that’s how Deeks described Kensi’s scent. He said she smelled like sunshine & gun powder, two of his favorite scents. Was the note Hetty’s way of acknowledging his feelings for Kensi? Giving her nod to their non-relationship relationship? Something’s afoot, that’s for sure!

Tonight’s season finale will split both sets of partners up, but from pictures I’ve seen, they will be back together at some point—I’m guessing at the end. I think the show is setting us up for a cliffhanger, and I have a feeling it may put one of the team in jeopardy. I can’t wait to find out!

On tonight’s episode, “Descent,” an explosion in the desert rekindles the search for stolen nuclear weapons and prompts Hetty to shuffle the partnerships, sending Callen and Kensi overseas and Sam and Deeks teamed up stateside. Guest stars include Aunjanue Ellis (Sam’s wife!), Christopher Lambert, & Timothy V. Murphy.

See why the teams are split up and if they can finally bring down Sidorov tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

JJ’s Choice

newgirl514smallSomehow, New Girl isn’t high on my list, even though the second season has been a blast. The pace at which Jess and Nick came together was great, and without Cece, Max Greenfield has had the opportunity to do some awesome scenes! Still, Winston could use some fleshing out as far as character development goes (bring back Damon Wayans Jr.’s character from the pilot, since Happy Endings was cancelled!).

On tonight’s episode, “Elaine’s Big Day,” Cece’s wedding day is up, and this finds Jess and Nick making a decision about their relationship. Meanwhile, Schmidt schemes with Winston to sabotage the nuptials, but a shocking announcement may be bigger than anything he plans.

See what it is on the season finale tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching So You Think You Can Dance, Wipeout, The Mindy Project, and Awkward.

Jenny’s Choice #2

ncis514smallThe case on NCIS last week was a good one. You had to feel sorry for the guy, even after finding out he was the one to cause the fire. He did it for a good reason. The funniest part of the episode was McGee making the observation room his own personal office, complete with loud music and snacks and trash everywhere. My son totally nailed the end of it when he said the DOD IG Investigator was there for Gibbs, not Ziva. I still think he’s going after the team as a whole, even though he claimed at the end that he was there for Gibbs. And why? What brought Gibbs & his team to the investigator’s attention, and why does he seem to have a bee in his bonnet for them? Hopefully we’ll find out more tonight.

On tonight’s season finale, “Damned if You Do,” the international manhunt for Eli David and Jackie Vance’s killer turns into a federal witch hunt against Gibbs and the team, which questions their unconventional methods and threatens their future at the agency. Guest stars include Colin Hanks, Muse Watson (Mike Franks is back!), and John M. Jackson.

To see if the team can stick together, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, 19 Kids & Counting, Chopped, The Little Couple, & Grimm.
