If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/27/13

It’s Monday, but it’s also Memorial Day, so most people have today off work. Whether you’re working or not, and whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, take a moment to remember those men and women who died serving in our military. Each and every one is a hero and gave his/her life for our freedom or someone else’s. They deserve to be remembered. As for television tonight, it’s a pretty slow night, so check out the two shows Kyle & I think you should be watching tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

longmire527smallI’m so excited for new TV on A&E tonight! One of my favorite new shows last summer, Longmire, returns tonight. If you missed it last season, the show is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson. Sheriff Walt Longmire lives in Wyoming, and last season, he had to come to terms with the loss of his wife (she died before the series started, but the effects of her death were still dictating his life). He and his daughter were having issues because of how closed off he’d become, and he realized he’d checked out of life so much that his deputy Branch was going up against him in the race for sheriff. And Vic Moretti (played by Katee Sackhoff, Battlestar Galactica) was still a fairly new deputy but had quickly become his right hand “man.” Finally, there was Henry Standing Bear (played by the always delightful Lou Diamond Phillips), who owns the local bar and is Walt’s loyal friend.

In the new season, Walt is back after coming to terms with the loss of his wife. He’ll fight for re-election against Branch. Vic will be visited by the ghost of a past she’d rather forget. Cady (Walt’s daughter) will search for answers about her mother’s murder. Henry will be drawn into the story when Walt’s possible connection to the death of his wife’s killer continues to come to light. I can’t wait to see how Walt & co. face each challenge and story—all while getting some great crime/sheriff stories as well!

On tonight’s episode, “Unquiet Mind,” after a prison transfer goes awry, Walt pursues a serial killer and his fellow escapees who have taken hostages up a mountain.

To see if this quiet country sheriff can capture your heart, tune in to A&E at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Bachelorette, The Goodwin Games, The Glades, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Kyle’s Choice

theglades527smallIt’s time to head back to The Glades with the fourth season premiere. When we last left the series, Jim made a surprise trip to Atlanta to see Callie and proposed to her, but we were left hanging as to her response. Will she say yes or no? And if she says yes, what does that mean for her career? Well, tonight we shall find out.

While I like Jim and Callie together, I also don’t want to see her sacrifice her chances at a real career just to go back to Florida to be with him. If they can make the long-distance thing work, then great for them, but a long-distance relationship isn’t all that interestin for the series—there’s just so many times they can have one of them fly out to visit the other. I’m hoping the writers can find some way to keep the relationship going that doesn’t seem far-fetched or involves Callie sacrificing everything she’s worked so hard for.

On tonight’s episode, “Yankee Dan,” an heiress’s dead body is found in a plantation house.

See what Callie’s answer is and how much fun—trouble—Jim can get into tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Revolution, The Goodwin Games, and Teen Wolf: Back to the Pack.
