If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/24/13

It’s Monday, which means work for a lot of people, but it also means some fantastic new TV, so that helps soften the blow of the weekend being over. JJ’s still without internet, Megan’s at the hospital with her stepdaughter, who’s having surgery on her knee, so it’s just Kyle & me again today. But we’ve got a couple of great choices for you, including a new show on CBS that looks like it’ll be amazing, so let’s get to it.

Jenny’s Choice

kingmaxwell624smallI’m REALLY digging the new show King & Maxwell. Jon Tenney & Rebecca Romijn are fantastic as the great team of PIs. They have a great relationship—working & non-working—& great chemistry together. The FBI agents (at least Rigby) is a douche, but I think he’ll slowly come around to at least respect the work they do. His partner, Carter, is kind of hysterical. He knows Sean & Michelle are good at what they do, but he’s clearly the newer agent, so he defers to Rigby more often than not. Last week, some of the funniest bits were watching him answer/help Sean & Michelle, much to Rigby’s annoyance. I was also thrilled to see Edgar Roy back. He was so sweet and adorable at the end, making up a desk to fit what he wanted.

On tonight’s episode, “Wild Card,” when FBI Agent Carter is suspended after assaulting an officer, King and Maxwell investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident. What they find leads them on a bizarre trail involving clues from Carter’s most recent case. Meanwhile, Sean reveals more about his past as a Secret Service agent and the mistake that led to his downfall.

To see if they can get Carter out of trouble & to learn more about Sean’s past, tune in to TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Glades, Major Crimes, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, Longmire, Under the Dome, & Warehouse 13.

Kyle’s Choice

underthedomesmallTonight, CBS kicks off the new series Under the Dome, which is based on the best-selling Stephen King novel of the same name. The small town of Chester’s Mill, Maine, is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Now, 1976 people are trapped inside—no one can leave and no help can get in. What is this barrier and where it did it come from? Why is it here and will it ever go away? What will the panic and lack of incoming supplies cause these residents to resort to?

I always enjoy these Stephen King TV adaptations, as I never have time to read his large books. I like how his mysteries always have a New England settings and how King explores human nature. This series looks exciting, and it has a great cast, including Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Mike Vogel (Bates Motel), Rachelle Lefevre (A Gifted Man, Off the Map), Natalie Martinez (CSI: NY, Detroit 1-8-7), Britt Robertson (The Secret Circle, Life Unexpected), Alexander Koch, Colin Ford (Supernatural—as young Sam!), Nicholas Strong (Nashville), Jolene Purdy (Gigantic, 10 Things I Hate About You), Aisha Hinds (Cult, Detroit 1-8-7, True Blood, HawthoRNe, Dollhouse), and Mackenzie Lintz.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” the dome materializes and the residents of Chester’s Mill struggle to survive as resources rapidly dwindle and panic sets in.

See if this show is as great as it sounds tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Goodwin Games, Switched at Birth, Major Crimes, King & Maxwell, The Glades, Defiance, Warehouse 13, and Teen Wolf.
