If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/6/13

Dang, August is flying by. It’s hard to believe we’re already 6 days in. My kiddo is counting down his last week before school starts. I can’t say I’m not doing the same thing. 😉 What about you? Are you enjoying the last few weeks of summer? However you’re spending it, spend at least some of it in front of the TV because of how many great shows are on tonight. We’re here to make some recommendations for what you can choose, so read on to find out what those are. 🙂

rizzoliisles86smallLast week’s Rizzoli & Isles was actually really funny. Jane had a run-in—literally—with a woman at the coffee shop, and the woman sued her. The department wouldn’t stand behind her because she wasn’t technically on the clock, being that it was 7:59, not 8:00. In the end, it was Jane’s apartment maintenance man and his girlfriend, and it was a setup so Jane would have to sell her apartment and the girlfriend could buy it cheap. As for the case of the week, it was kind of sad, with an elderly man being set up for the murder of his friend. Luckily, the group figured it out and were able to help the guy out. It was hard to watch him talk to Jane because you just had to feel sorry for him.

On tonight’s episode, “All for One,” a popular high school teacher is killed in a hit and run that is clearly no accident. The squad works to solve the case, but Jane is preoccupied with Lt. Martinez’s apparent favoritism toward his own drug unit. Amaury Nolasco guest stars.

Find out why the teacher was killed tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, America’s Got Talent, Capture, Covert Affairs, & Chopped.

perception86smallI’ve recently been getting caught up on Perception, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. Eric McCormick’s character of Daniel is so much fun to watch while he’s solving the cases of the week. Last week’s episode, we watched as Daniel worked together with Donnie to solve the case, and it was a nice change to see them working together. Donnie isn’t as bad of a guy as some people think he is, but at the end of the day, Daniel is my favorite on the show. Daniel is a little abnormal with his brain issues, but truth be told, normal is boring, so I’m happy with his loopy side.

On tonight’s episode, “Neuropositive,” Moretti calls on Pierce to determine the credibility of a man’s death-bed confession; Pierce and Moretti try to uncover the truth about a series of apparent homicides.

To see how the case of the week plays out, tune in to TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching So You Think You Can Dance and Chopped.

faceoffsmallIn preparation for next week’s Face Off season premiere, Syfy is airing Face Off: The Vets Strike Back. For the fifth season of the competition series, eight returning Face Off veterans will compete against eight brand new special-effects makeup artists to take home the prize. In tonight’s two-hour special, host McKenzie Westmore and judges Glenn Hetrick, Ve Neill, and Neville Page take a look at the returning makeup artists—from their past work, to why they were eliminated in the first place, and why they deserve a second chance at the competition.

I’m excited for an all-new season of Face Off challenges and seeing how this new twist changes up the dynamic of the game. It’s great that Syfy has put together this special to help refresh our memories (or introduce new viewers) to these returning contestants.

Get all caught up tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Capture, Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, Chopped, Rizzoli & Isles, and Perception.

whoselinesmallI have never watched an American episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, but the show has been aired in many different countries in many different forms. Not every incarnation works as well, but the idea is simple and the execution depends on a fun host and great comics (and sometimes, even the guests). I’ve speed tracked through the episodes so far, and I am loving this season!

On tonight’s episode, “Wilson Bethel,” the guest of the night is, well, you guessed it: Wilson Bethel from Hart of Dixie.

See who “wins” based on the “points” Aisha Tyler gives out on The CW at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching So You Think You Can Dance, Suits, and Web Therapy.
