If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/20/13

Why can’t these networks spread out the TV shows that I watch more evenly throughout the week?! Tuesdays and Fridays are wide open, but there is so much on the rest of the week! And with the summer season quickly approaching, my TiVo is getting busier and busier each week! With so many choices, we’ve got some suggestions for what you should check out tonight. [Note from Jenny: Kyle wrote this up before learning of James Gandolfini’s death from an apparent heart attack at the age of 51. Galdolfini was most well known for his lead role in The Sopranos, and he just finished filming a show called Criminal Justice for HBO that was picked up to series. No word yet on how that role will be handled. Our thoughts and sympathies go out to his friends and family. He was brilliant as the one and only Tony Soprano and will be missed.]

wilfred620smallTonight, Wilfred is back for more of his crazy antics with a double-episode season premiere of…well, Wilfred. When the second season came to a close, Ryan’s girlfriend had been arrested for defrauding the start-up where she and Ryan worked; and Ryan hosted Jenna and Drew’s wedding at his home. In a shocking cliffhanger, Ryan discovered Wilfred in a drawing he’d made as a young boy—and the drawing was older than Wilfred himself.

So we are now back to the question of who or what is Wilfred and why can Ryan see/hear him? Last season, the show got a bit dark near the end. I hope we get back to the lighter, fun (and totally inappropriate) comedy and also get some answers as to what is really going on.

On tonight’s first episode, “Uncertainty,” Wilfred’s original owner is sought out. Then, in “Comfort,” Ryan befriends Wilfred’s enemy.

See the season premiere tonight on FX at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Hannibal, Hell’s Kitchen, Does Someone Have to Go?, The Hero, Burn Notice, Graceland, The Graham Norton Show, Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous, & Race to the Scene.

theherosmallWho would have thought that a show with The Rock hosting would be entertaining to me, but The Hero has managed to keep my attention. I found the idea of not only testing their strength and endurance, but also their integrity to do the right thing, intriguing. So far, it’s been pretty interesting to see the lengths some people will go to prove they can be a hero—and at the same time, how quickly trust issues begin to build amongst contestants.

On tonight’s episode, “Trust,” with trust issues already growing, contestants are offered temptations as they navigate the Panamanian jungle and handle huge snakes in the Team Challenge. In the Hero Challenge, one contestant must climb atop a towering bridge. Shaun comes to Athena’s side when the house questions her motives. In the War Room, Athena stands tall.

To see who can be trusted and who should lie with the snakes, tune in to TNT at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Hell’s Kitchen and Race to the Scene.
