If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/22/13

This week is just flying by! I cannot believe that June is just around the corner. Before I know it, the kids will be off for the summer and I’ll be trying to find things to amuse them. To take my mind off the crazy summer, let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

criminalminds522smallI was so pleased when I heard that Criminal Minds was coming back for another season. That saves me crying tonight if it was a series finale. This has been one of my favorite shows for years now (which, FYI, for a TV addict is a big deal)—and the only complaint I have is that I still want to see them try a Morgan/Garcia relationship. At least give us fans a kiss. I know the incredibly sexy Shemar Moore, who plays Derek, thinks that making his character have romantic involvement with Garcia will ruin the chemistry—I disagree! 🙂 Let’s see Derek give his Baby Girl some love!

On last week’s episode, we watched as the team solved the case with an Unsub who kidnapped couples and made them kill each other. Can you imagine having to kill your spouse? *shiver* We also saw as Blake had to decide whether or not to leave the BAU to take a full-time teaching job so she could be with her husband more. In the end, Blake asked him to love her as she is, and that means continuing to travel for her work with the BAU. It was a sweet moment that really illustrated what a strong marriage is—learning to love the person for who they are and not who you want them to be.

On tonight’s 2-hour season finale, “Brothers Hotcher, The Replicator,” the Replicator goes after a member of the BAU; during an investigation into a series of drug-related deaths in Manhatten, Hotch learns that his estranged brother, Sean, is caught in the middle.

To see how season 8 of this fabulous show comes to an end, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef, Law & Order: SVU, and Chicago Fire.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

masterchef2012smallTonight, the fourth season of MasterChef kicks off as a new batch of home cooks enter the kitchen to try to win over the judges. I was so happy when Christine won last year, as I had been rooting for her the whole season. I’m looking forward to seeing what mix of personalities we get this year and deciding who I want to cheer on. What I like about this show is that it’s a lot more friendly than Hell’s Kitchen. It’s not just about chefs cursing and fighting with one another while trying to throw each other under the bus. For the most part, they really encourage one another and become friends. The one thing I don’t like is that for many of the challenges, the judges don’t even taste many of the chefs’ dishes—but I’m getting ahead of myself, as tonight is just the start of the auditions.

On tonight’s double-episode, “Auditions #1 & #2,” home cooks representing 26 states arrive in Los Angeles to compete for the title of MasterChef and the $250,000 grand prize. Each hopeful prepares a signature dish and presents it to judges Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich, and Graham Elliot, who rate on flavor, creativity, and presentation.

See the 2-hour premiere tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Criminal Minds, The Middle, Modern Family, How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), Nashville, and Psych.

JJ’s Choice

modernfamily522smallTonight, the season finale of Modern Family is upon us, and it appears to be one that mixes the funny with the sad. Overall, I’ve loved this season, although I’m missing some progress. The show hasn’t really changed too much, and it needs some shake-up or a direction for it to stay one of my number one comedies at the moment.

On tonight’s episode, “Goodnight, Gracie,” everyone flies to Florida to help Phil cope with his mother’s passing. While the family reminices, Gloria has to deal with an outstanding arrest, Cam fits right into an eldery women’s group, and Jay runs into someone from his past.

See the season finale on ABC at 9/8c.
