If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/16/13

It’s Monday! Normally, that would be cause for boos and hisses, but tonight marks the first night of the fall TV season, and that includes one of my favorite returning shows and one of my favorite new shows. So YAY! To see what we’re recommending, read on. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

bones916smallI was lucky enough to see a screener for the Bones season premiere, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to watch early. I was one of those fans who was incredibly unhappy in the season six finale, when we didn’t see the change in Booth/Brennan’s relationship and she told him she was pregnant. But since, we’ve gotten some fantastic stuff of them as a couple, and I’ve been very pleased. It even got to the point where she proposed to him last season…and then he broke her heart and said he didn’t think they should get married. Even though we knew why he’d done it, it still ticked me off to no end because just when Bones had opened her heart, he ripped it to shreds. I was worried it would set her back years. I’m very pleased to say that, while yes, things are VERY rocky, by the end of the episode, Hart and Stephen had once again renewed my faith. It’s a great, great episode, and I can’t wait to see it again tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “The Secrets in the Proposal,” the remains of an accountant for the State Department are found in a hotel air conditioning unit; Booth finds an Army buddy and CIA agent, Danny Beck, removing evidence from the victim’s condo; Brennan contemplates her future with Booth. Freddie Prinze Jr. & Mather Zickel guest star.

Find out if Brennan comes to a decision tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Sleepy Hollow & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Megan’s Choice

dwtssmallI don’t usually watch, let alone recommend Dancing with the Stars, but this year has a pretty awesome cast in my opinion. Due to the great cast, I’m going to give the show another try. This season, we have Amber Riley (Glee), Leah Remini (King of Queens), and a fond memory from my childhood in Billy Nye (from Bill Nye the Science Guy). I am excited for all of them! The only one I’m not excited about—and I hope she falls on her round ass—is Snooki from Jersey Shore. Let’s hope this season is fast paced and exciting, because I’d like to enjoy it for a change.

On tonight’s season premiere, the partnerships are revealed as they take to the floor to dance for your votes.

To see if Bill Nye is as smooth on the dance floor as he is in a lab, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, Sleepy Hollow, and Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Kyle’s Choice

sleepyhollowsmallTonight, Fox kicks off its first new show of the fall season with the premiere of Sleepy Hollow. This twist on Washington Irving’s classic tale finds Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) transported to the modern day, where he teams up with police officer Det. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) to track down the Headless Horseman and other supernatural beasts in order to stop the apocalypse. The series comes from producers Damian Kindler (Sanctuary, Stargate series), Len Wiseman (Underworld films), and Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci (Fringe). I really enjoyed tonight’s premiere—it’s like if you took Supernatural and mixed in elements of these producer’s previous shows. I found it action-packed, and it sets up an interesting mythology to explore throughout the season.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Ichabod Crane wakes up in the 21st century, but finds his 18th-century nemesis, the Headless Horseman, has also come along for the ride. After a local sheriff is killed, Crane teams up with Det. Abbie Mills to sort out the mystery and its historical implications, though her supervisor is skeptical of all the supernatural shenanigans.

Check out the start of this great new show tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Under the Dome and Bones.

JJ’s Choice

underthedome916smallI’m still on the fence with Under the Dome. Most of the mythology around the big- and mini-dome is interesting, but some of the characters and how they act can really be infuriating. Suddenly, Big Jim has fully given in to his evil streak, but he has everyone tied around his fingers. Linda didn’t question the kids being in the prison, and the mother tried to reason with Big Jim. But tonight, we seem to finally be getting the big Barbie vs. Jim showdown, and it will be interesting how this season finale runs over into season 2.

On tonight’s episode, “Curtains,” secretes of the Dome are revealed, Big Jim is determined to put an end to Barbie and Junior, Angie, Joe, and Norrie discover who the monarch is after receiving a shocking visit from a familiar face.

See the season finale of tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’lll also be watching Dancing with the Stars (interesting cast, so will check it out) and Sleepy Hollow (might not stick, but will check out).
