If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/3/13

Hello, June?!? Where the heck did May go? This is the last month of school for my kids, and while they are so very happy—I am a little nervous what a crazy summer it’s going to be. Crazy summer starting with tons of new television premieres—beginning tonight. 🙂

Megan’s Choice

mistressessmallI had the chance to watch the pilot of Mistresses a while back, and I have to say that at first, I was hesitant to love it—but it won me over. There’s nothing I enjoy more than watching someone else’s drama unfold on the screen. That is what this show is for me—delicious and sexy drama. It also helps that I LOVE Alyssa Milano and she is gorgeous in this.

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” a successful lawyer develops an attraction to her co-worker when fertility issues begin to take a toll on her marriage.

Check out the fabulous new drama on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Fosters, Teen Wolf, The Voice, Cake Boss, and The Bachelorette.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice #1

theglades63smallI loved last week’s season premiere of The Glades. I really missed Jim’s snarky attitude. I have a friend that is totally put off by it, but I love him. He’s smart, funny, kind of an ass, but loyal as the day is long and sexy, to boot. We found out right away last week that Callie hadn’t said yes to Jim’s season-ending proposal…but she hadn’t said no, either. She had a lot to think about—and it wasn’t TOTALLY clear at the end whether or not she would be returning to Florida for good or whether she would stay in Atlanta for school/work but still be engaged to Jim. So that’ll be interesting. She said yes, and that’s the important thing. There’s still a lot to consider (the job/school and her son Jeff being the two biggest), but for now, I’m a happy camper. The case was good too, involving two dead plantation owners—one current and one over a hundred fifty years before—and a ghost. I enjoyed it because they didn’t go too much into the “ghosts are real! see?!” camp, letting you draw your own conclusions on whether or not you thought a ghost was actually there. It was a great start to what I hope will be another great season.

On tonight’s episode, “Shot Girls,” the murder of the spokesmodel for a prominent rum brand sends Jim into the sexy, cutthroat world of liquor promotion to find the killer.

Find out if Jim can solve the case (as if he wouldn’t!) tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

teenwolf2013smallTonight, Teen Wolf returns to MTV for the start of its third season. When we last left the gang, Kanima Jackson awakened from the body bag and attacked Derek. Meanwhile, Gerard, dying of cancer, made a deal to stop the Kanima if Derek bit him, turning him into the new Alpha. However, just as Gerard was celebrating his new power, black blood started dripping from his nose—Scott had swapped out Gerard’s cancer pills for capsule of mountain ash, which made him immune to the bite. With his dying breath, Gerard ordered the Kanima to kill them all, and in the fight that ensued, the Kanima was killed, but Jackson the man rose from the ashes. Meanwhile, a new all-Alpha pack of werewolves had arrived in town.

So did Gerard really die? If so, I hope they can find a new villain as scary as he was! And what does the arrival of this new all-Alpha pack mean for our wolves? Each episode of this show is always action-packed and leaves us with a mini-cliffhanger for the following week—I can’t wait to see what happens tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Tattoo,” Derek and Isaac search for Erica and Boyd.

See how the new season starts after last season’s big finale tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Revolution, The Goodwin Games, The Fosters, The Glades, Defiance, and Warehouse 13.

JJ’s Choice

goodwingames63smallThe Goodwin Games never stood a chance on FOX, but I was very interested to watch it, mostly because of Becki Newton and Scott Foley. Surely, now I’m disappointed at FOX for not giving this show a chance, because I think it’s quite funny, the story is original, and the cast works well together. The influence of Bays and Thomas (from HIMYM) can be noticed, so it would be interesting to see if the show would’ve had long-term potential.

On tonight’s episode, “Small Town,” Chloe suspects Jimmy of reverting to his criminal past, while Henry lies to his siblings about being a workaholic and Chloe is shocked when her L.A. roommate kicks her out over the phone.

See if the siblings get to know each other a little better on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching Oh Sit!, Defiance, Warehouse 13, and Revolution.

Jenny’s Choice #2

warehouse1363smallIt’s been a couple of weeks since the last Warehouse 13, and I’m so glad it’s back! Last ep, poor Artie was still reeling & dealing with killing Leena. We found out Steve had been…not spying on Artie, but keeping an eye on him for the Regents. The others may think that was a bad thing, but personally, I don’t think it was. He wasn’t tattling… He was (is) genuinely worried about Artie. He did get worried that the Regents would bronze Artie, but Mr. Scary Man in Charge told him to trust them. So when Mrs. Frederic introduced the new B&B manager, Abigail Cho, and we the viewer learned that she was really there to help Artie by basically being his therapist, that went a long way to putting to rest how the Regents were going to help him. It’ll be interesting to see how her character fits in with the rest of the group, since I believe she’s a recurring character.

On tonight’s episode, “Instinct,” H.G. Wells re-enters the picture to help Pete and Myka with an artifact search. Meanwhile, earthquakes shake the Warehouse from within.

To see what’s causing the Warehouse to move, tune in to Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Defiance & Longmire.
