If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/1/13

Happy first day of July, people! It seems fitting that the second half of the year starts out on a Monday. It can only go up from here, right? No? *sigh* Fine. 😉 Well, there’s a lot on to help us start the week out right, so check out our recommendations!

Jenny’s Choice #1

warehouse1371smallOh dang. Warehouse 13 is kicking it into high gear leading into next week’s season finale. It doesn’t seem possible that we have 8 episodes to go, including tonight’s penultimate episode. Last week, we learned more about Charlotte Dupres (the Countess of St. Germaine) and Nick…her son. It doesn’t seem like they’re the bad guys I was expecting them to be, unless we haven’t yet seen everything we need to see. It wasn’t Nick who bronzed Claudia. It was the evil alchemist, Paracelsus, who Nick de-bronzed and set free. I know Nick and Charlotte supposedly need him to help break the curse of immortality, but this guy seems like BAD news. Claudia is in a bad way. She wasn’t bronzed or stored correctly, so she’s dying, even though the bronzing process is supposed to prevent that. Also last week, Myka admitted to Pete about her cancer diagnosis. It was a heartwrenching moment—especially after seeing her funny daydreams about his possible reactions.

On tonight’s episode, “All the Time in the World,” time is quickly running out in the Warehouse 13 team’s search for the evil alchemist who bronzed Claudia and stole the only artifact that can reverse the condition—and it seems Mrs. Frederic and the Warehouse are affected, too.

Find out if the team can save Claudia tonight and the futures of their fearless, mysterious leader & the Warehouse too on Syfy at 10/9c.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

teenwolf71smallTeen Wolf has been hitting it out of the park this season—and keeping me on the edge of my seat. What is going on with all these murders? It’s baffling, but the mystery is awesome. I was honestly a little sad when I found out the adorable Colton Haynes wasn’t going to be returning this season, but the rest of the cast has stepped up, and I’m almost over it. 🙂 Stiles has been really strong this season, but I’ve always been such a huge fan of his character. Last week, there was a new murder, and it wasn’t a virgin, so that didn’t fit into Stile’s theory of virgin sacrifice. Derek kicks Isaac out of his pack because he knows that Deucalion wants him to kill his pack. Isaac moves in with Scott.

On tonight’s episode, “Frayed,” Scott and his friends flash back to events of a pre-emptive strike against the Alphas.

To see how they all deal with this dangerous situation, tune in to MTV at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Bachelorette, Under the Dome, Siberia, Major Crimes, and Mistresses.

siberiasmallTonight, NBC kicks off the new scripted drama series, Siberia. Think of it as Survivor meets The River or Harper’s Island. Sixteen contestants are dropped off in a remote area to compete in a reality show, with no rules except to survive. They can quit at any time, but the last remaining contestants will split the prize money. However, when things suddenly go wrong, the contestants find themselves literally trying to survive.

Tonight’s season premiere sets up the premise, and it looks like it could be an interesting and thrilling show. I was really surprised by how realistic the contestant interviews and reality show aspect of the episode looked. It makes me wonder just how scripted actual reality shows are!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” strange things start to happen to 16 reality-TV show contestants who find themselves literally fighting to survive in the opener of this drama set in the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska.

See if this non-reality drama about a reality show is up your alley tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

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

JJ’s Choice

goodwingames71smallToday, the finale of The Goodwin Games is upon us, and I’m really sad. But who am I kidding? FOX really screwed the pooch with this show. The cast is great, and the creators are known (for HIMYM). But delaying it till summer and then burning off the episodes and letting the cast go before the show airs… Ah well, at least they aired all taped episodes, and it will be interesting to see if we are getting a “real” finale tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “The Box,” Chloe and Jimmy try to keep their respective relationships a secret from Henry, who they fear will judge them to no end. Meanwhile, the siblings realize how much their father is controlling their lives, which leads them to figure out the answer to the final clue.

Say goodbye to the Goodwins on FOX at 8:30/7:30c (in an episode directed by Neil Patrick Harris).

I’ll also be watching Defiance and Warehouse 13.

Jenny’s Choice #2

amninjasmallOne of my favorite shows last summer was American Ninja Warrior. It’s so much fun watching to see the stories of all the competitors and then to watch them all try to complete the course. Most of them fail, and by the end of the competition last year, it was incredibly hard to watch those that had gotten that far fail when the end was so close they could taste it. So I’m really excited that it’s back tonight on NBC. (The season started on G4 last night, but the network premiere is tonight.)

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, “Venice Beach Qualifying,” the world’s most dreaded obstacle course [Note from Jenny: Aside from the one with the big red balls! 😉 ] returns as competitors convene at Venice Beach, California, to take on the feat for qualifying rounds. Competitors hope to eventually make the finals in order to compete for the $500,000 grand prize—and the knowledge that they are one of only a few to ever reach the end.

Check out all the sexy, athletic guys (& girls!) tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

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