If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/16/13

Today, I would like to start by saying Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there—whether biological, adopted, or a stepfather, if you take care of your kids and are a dad to them, we salute you. Secondly, I’d like to take a minute to say happy 8th birthday to my amazing, sarcastic, beautiful, sweet, and blessing of a daughter, Chloe. You, little girl, are by far one of my greatest achievements.

Now to get to the other stuff: what you should be watching on TV tonight.

Megan’s Choice

trueblood616smallI know that waiting sucks, but the wait is over because tonight is the season premiere of True Blood. I’ve got my cuddly blanket, my cup of tea (sorry, no blood for this girl), and I am going to sit back to watch Sookie start the season off in a pool of trouble as usual. I will, of course, also be watching to see my favorite vampire, Eric—hopefully, this season, Sookie and Eric will hook up for good, but I’m sure they’re going to drag that on forever. Whatever this season brings, it’s bound to be filled with delicious story lines, high sexual tension, and vicious fight scenes.

On tonight’s premiere, “Who Are You, Really?” a group flees the Authority compound in the wake of Bill’s reincarnation; Sam, Luna, and Emma evade guards; Alcide learns about the pack master job; Andy parents newborn human-faerie hybrids; Governor Truman Burrell vows open season on vampires.

To get your fix of sexy supernaturals, tune in to HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Chopped, Food Network Star, and The Client List.

19kidssmallI know this show isn’t for everyone, but 19 Kids & Counting is something I still enjoy. There’s just something about the family that makes me want to tune in and watch. When we last saw them, oldest son Josh’s wife, Anna, was pregnant, and he had just accepted a job in Washington D.C., which means he’ll be the first Duggar kid to move away from Mom and Dad—and not just in town, but over a thousand miles away. With their third child coming, that’s an even bigger move. So tonight is a one-hour special where we get to see them finding a new place to live and Anna has the baby. I can’t wait!

On tonight’s 1-hour special, “GrandDuggar Makes 3!” Josh and Anna are ready to meet their third child; Josh, Anna, Mackynzie and Michael head to Washington D.C. to look for a new home.

See the family grow tonight on TLC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing HGTV Star & Food Network Star.

nursejackie616smallTonight, the fifth season of Nurse Jackie comes to a close. Last week, Grace was caught with a bag of pills in her school bag, and Jackie blamed herself for being a bad role model to her daughter. Unaware of what was going on, Frank got upset with Jackie for ignoring him after he told her that he loved her. Meanwhile, Coop tried to mentor Carrie, and All Saints seemed to have channeled its inner Seattle Grace, as things got a bit romantic between Zoey and Prentiss.

I really enjoyed this season of Nurse Jackie because we got to see a better side of Jackie—it wasn’t all about her being drugged out and trying to get away with it each week. However, things seem to be getting a bit more stressful for Jackie each week, and it’s a wonder if she will be able to stay on the bandwagon. Can she get Grace back on the right path? Are things with her and Frank going to be okay? I’m happy to see Zoey in a fun relationship again—will this one last? The series has already been picked up for another season, so it will be interesting to see how they set things up for the next season.

On tonight’s finale, “Soul,” Jackie celebrates her one-year anniversary of being sober. But her joy is cut short when she fights with Frank. Later, Zoey becomes rigid around Prentiss; and Jackie takes something that doesn’t belong to her.

Find out how Jackie deals with the stress tonight on Showtime at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Chopped, Food Network Star, Falling Skies, True Blood, Veep, Family Tree, and The Venture Bros.

JJ’s Choice

veepsmallVeep is still one of the greatest comedy gems on TV because of the great writing, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the cast, and the awkwardness that the show so aptly portrays. This season, Selina has been getting a little bit more important for POTUS, but the last episode, she might have destroyed what she has been working toward.

On tonight’s episode, “Running,” the Veep continues her plans, while Dan attempts to play both sides of the Selina-Danny Chung rivalry.

See how it plays out and how the last episode affects Selina on HBO at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching True Blood and Falling Skies.
