If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/5/13

The weather this weekend was fantastic because it was mild and sunny—no humidity!! 🙂 Unfortunately, with my recent injuries to my ribs, I wasn’t able to get out and enjoy it as much as I’d hoped. At least tonight, I’ll have some great new television to watch. Let’s check it out.

Megan’s Choice

thebachelorette2013smallI know that it’s still a little crazy to see me, of all people, recommending The Bachelorette, but here I am. Desiree is a very intriguing woman, and I’ve enjoyed watching her ups and downs this season. Last week, we watched as she had two amazing fantasy suite dates with Chris and Drew—but we also watched as Brooks broke her heart. Honestly, I didn’t like Brooks much, but watching her sob was heartbreaking. I’m hoping she moves forward with Chris, because I feel they have the best connection.

On tonight’s season finale, Desiree has to decide whether she even wants to continue on with either of the men.

To see where Desiree’s heart leads her, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Under the Dome, American Ninja Warrior, The Fosters, and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice #1

majorcrimes85smallLast week’s Major Crimes was incredibly heartbreaking. My 15yo son watched with me, and we both cried when they found & played the video the victim made with the cards that told the story of his sexual abuse by his swim coach when he was a kid. And while I called it that the dad would end up shooting the man—and I told my son that had it been either my husband or myself, we’d probably have at least thought of doing that very thing—I was really hoping I was wrong…but I wasn’t. It was a tragic end to an even more tragic story, and an episode I won’t soon forget.

On tonight’s episode, “There’s No Place Like Home,” Provenza faces possible permanent desk duty, while the squad investigates the suspicious death of a loathsome ICE agent, which brings them into contact with the residents of an ancient apartment complex nicknamed La Shangri-la. Tim Conway, Paul Dooley, Ron Glass, Doris Roberts, and Marion Ross guest star. Paul McCrane and Kathe Mazur also appear in the episode.

See why Provenza may be forced into desk duty tonight on TNT at 10/9c.

Kyle’s Choice

underthedome85smallOn last week’s Under the Dome, the town was in full panic mode as everyone descended on the local store to loot and get any water and supplies they could get their hands. Joe and Norrie also resorted to their own less-than-legal methods to obtain insulin for Norrie’s diabetic mother. Meanwhile, Julia and Dodee tracked down not WHAT, but WHO was interfering with the radio signals. Angie escaped from Junior and made a deal with Big Jim to protect her, and some looting teenagers murdered Rose.

While I still love the show, that horrible diabetic storyline last week was wrought with so many mistakes that it made me wonder if anyone on the writing staff has even met a diabetic. We have four type 1 diabetics in the family, so last week, my brother, mother, and I had a bit of a ranting session, listing all of the things that were completely wrong with the episode! 🙂 That said, I’m looking forward to seeing what obstacle the town faces next—and learning more about the mysterious connection between Joe and Norrie and the dome.

On tonight’s episode, “Imperfect Circles,” Big Jim takes action when his authority is challenged; a baby is born as another life ends.

Find out what action Big Jim takes and whose life ends tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls, Siberia, Switched at Birth, Major Crimes, King & Maxwell, The Glades, and Teen Wolf,

Jenny’s Choice #2

kingmaxwell85smallI’m loving King & Maxwell more and more each week. Last week’s case was interesting. I especially liked the part where they went to exchange the hostages at the end. We didn’t know until they ripped the hood off that it WASN’T Sean underneath like they’d talked about. And you have to wonder how serious Michelle took the offer of getting her job back with the Secret Service. Obviously it won’t happen—there would be no show. But…how much will she think about it? How cute are Edgar and Benny? I love them. I don’t think there’s any romance there—I think she sees him as a little brother…someone to protect. But they’re damn sweet together. And then we got another piece of info on the assassination from Sean’s Secret Service days. They’re adding up, aren’t they? The meeting in the sewer or tunnel or whatever was kind of creepy! I kept expecting someone to shoot at them.

I gotta recommend this again tonight because the previews looked like it could be an amazingly fun episode. Rigby tolerates them now, although asking for their help still makes him grit his teeth, and this episode…I have a feeling he’ll be gritting them into nothing!

On tonight’s episode, “Locked In,” when the key witness to a company’s deadly chemical spill is murdered inside FBI headquarters, King and Maxwell are trapped in the building. With a killer on the loose and Special Agent Rigby’s career on the line, they have only hours to solve the murder and find a new witness to testify at a Senate hearing to bring the company to justice.

To see if Sean & Michelle can help their frenemy in time, tune in to TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Longmire, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, The Shed, & Under the Dome.
