If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/22/13

I got to have a wonderful weekend away for my birthday and to celebrate my engagement—it’s been an eventful time around here. If you get a chance to come to Canada, I highly recommend heading to Gananoque to experience the small-town charm, then taking the ferry over to explore the Thousand Islands (which actually sit on the border of New York and Ontario). Overall, it’s been a fantastic time with good food, great company, and even some down time to sit and watch a few great shows. Speaking of great shows, let’s see what you should be watching tonight.

Megan’s Choice

breakingpointesmallBreaking Pointe returns tonight with the second season premiere, and I’m quite excited. The dancers were all in different phases of their careers and love life. The hardest part of last season was watching the dancers learn about their fate in the company, and when they didn’t make it, I really felt their sadness.

On tonight’s premiere, “It’s Not Brain Surgery, It’s Ballet,” the Ballet West dancers return from winter break and begin tryouts for “Cinderella.” Famed former ballet dancer Wendy Ellis Somes arrives to assist Artistic Director Adam in the audition process. With her partner Ronnie out with a foot injury, Beckanne begins to feel the pressure during tryouts. Meanwhile, Allison is torn between staying with Ballet West or moving on. After a night of partying, Zach and Beckanne have a falling out, and Ronnie gets some disturbing news from his doctor that could change the rest of his life.

To watch the dancers put their best efforts into wearing the glass slipper, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Bachelorette, American Ninja Warrior, Mistresses, and Get Out Alive.

Jenny’s Choice

kingandmaxwell722smallAgain, I have to pick King & Maxwell as my choice for today’s Remote. I love this show every week, and my love for it seems to grow each week as well. On last week’s episode, a congressman—who also happened to be the son of the presidential candidate Sean was protecting when he was shot and killed—asked for their help to find a blogger with a secret identity. The blogger had been targeting him, but he was afraid the blogger would soon turn on his family, and that wouldn’t be a good thing. The blogger was killed during the investigation, and the mastermind behind it all turned out to be the wife of the congressman’s campaign manager/friend. I felt really sorry for the congressman, but in the end, it turned out to be a good thing he had to come to Sean for help, because he and Sean were able to set aside some of the past. It’s not all forgiven or forgotten on either part, but it helped. And I still love me some Edgar!

On tonight’s episode, “Family Business,” when Michelle’s P.I. brother comes to town on behalf of his wealthy client, he enlists the help of King and Maxwell to investigate what looks like a con artist with many identities. Just like the man they are tracking, nothing in this case is what it seems. Christian Kane (Leverage) guest stars.

See how the sexy Christian Kane helps our favorite private eyes tonight on TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Major Crimes, Supermarket Superstar, & Under the Dome.

JJ’s Choice

underthedome722smallFrankly, Under the Dome has been quite infuriating to me. With a sudden mysterious dome appearing over a town, the people are way too accepting and calm. Last week, some people started expressing some of their frustrations, which I quite liked. And the mystery around “you don’t seem like yourself” (which they say way too often on this show) and the kids with their “the pink stars are falling” is getting more prevalent and interesting.

On tonight’s episode, “Blue on Blue,” the residents of Chester’s Mill receive an unexpected visit from their loved ones on the other side, while the community braces for a threat from outside the dome.

Find out what the threat is on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Mistresses.
