If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/20/13

I haven’t been to sleep yet as I write this, so I hope it’s coherent. *laugh* Megan’s sister is visiting and JJ’s got a lot going on, so it’s just Kyle and me tonight, but really, that’s all you need. 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

rizzoliisles820smallMy first pick tonight is Rizzoli & Isles. Before I talk about last week’s episode, in case you haven’t heard the news, Lee Thompson Young—Detective Frost on the show—was found dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. That is tragic news, and I know I’ll miss him on the show. Please, if you feel like that’s your only option, talk to someone. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Last week’s episode was great. A woman was killed at a kids’ ice hockey game, and there were too many possible suspects to count, since it could’ve been almost anyone from inside where the game was being played. The story was heartbreaking, of a woman who had searched for years for her sister’s child, who she believed had been kidnapped by his father after he killed his wife and ran off after making it look like he’d died too. The sister never gave up, and in the end, she paid with her life when he saw her there and knew she’d found him. At least he was caught, although I felt horrible for his son and wife. Tonight’s episode should be a doozy. We go back to the beginning…and Charles Hoyt…

On tonight’s episode, “No One Mourns the Wicked,” when Jane and Maura are asked to present the case of serial killer Charles Hoyt at a symposium for law enforcement, Jane worries that her greatest challenge will be facing bad memories. However, as she and Maura begin a simulation of investigating Hoyt’s murders, they soon come across a horrifying discovery. In a matter of moments, the team finds themselves drawn into a lethal game of cat and mouse with a new and terrifying serial killer.

Find out who and what they’re dealing with tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

Kyle’s Choice

capturesmallI’ve been enjoying The CW’s new reality series, Capture. Last week, the almost universally hated blue team was randomly chose to be the Hunt team—which was a good thing, because they were on everyone’s hit list (except for the black team’s). In the first round, these wingmen managed to track down the purple parkour couple who thought they had a great plan of staying high because “no one would want to run uphill to catch them.” In the second round, the wingmen patiently waited outside of the restricted area while the red team gorged themselves with cake and pounced as soon as the neighbors left the safe zone. In the end, the majority of the teams voted for the parkour couple to go home, as they were seen as the bigger threat,

This past week was especially interesting because the two captured teams had both been Hunt teams in the prior two weeks—which shows that they didn’t learn from the experience. What I also like about this game is the interesting strategy and misunderstandings that go on. The blue team tried to throw away sandwiches to leave the rest of the teams starving, but this backfired once the teams realized they were the ones responsible. And last week, one of the teams saw the black team in close proximity to the blue team on the map, assumed that the two were colluding, and started spreading this incorrect rumor. The team I’m really rooting for is the teal British twins. I love how they have had enough of the constant complaining about the lost sandwiches and are ready to eliminate those teams to stop the whining!

On tonight’s episode, “Angel with a Broken Wing,” a medical emergency occurs, and a player is taken off the field on a stretcher; one team gets tempted by an offer of pizza, beer, and chicken wings.

To see who gets hurt and if a team takes the offer, tune in to The CW at 9/8c.

I’m also watching/recording Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, Rizzoli & Isles, Perception, Covert Affairs, Suits, Face Off, and Heroes of Cosplay.

Jenny’s Choice #2

whoselinesmallI LOVE having Whose Line Is It Anyway? back on my TV every week! I’m not sure there’s any other show that I’ve ever seen in my life that makes me laugh as much as this one did back then and continues to do again now. They have guest stars now, which is…different. Some are good, some are great, and some are just plain awful. The synchronized swimmers? TERRIBLE! But I’ve already seen tonight’s episode, and Keegan Michael-Key is hysterical.

On tonight’s episode, “Keegan Michael-Key,” cast members must interact and perform with…you guessed it: Keegan Michael-Key (MadTV).

Let them tickle your funny bone tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, America’s Got Talent, Capture, Covert Affairs, & The Little Couple.
