If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/30/13

It’s the last day of September, and the month is going out with a bang today with some fantastic new episodes. We’re here to give you our recommendations on what you should be watching. 🙂

castle930smallI absolutely loved last week’s Castle. He made up for his seemingly lackluster proposal with the explanation that it was the most serious thing he’d ever done and that it wasn’t a ploy to get her to stay in NYC and not take the job in D.C., that they would work it out whatever she decided to do. Of course, the separation didn’t come easy to either of them, but Castle was definitely missing out on partnering with Beckett—so much so that he couldn’t help but butt in on her case when she accidentally left a photo out of the file as she left the apartment to go to work. So when he found it, he talked Ryan & Espo into helping him. That was the one thing I missed in the premiere, was the whole team working together. I like Beckett’s new partner in D.C., but I can’t wait until she’s back in NY. Of course, then there was Pi, Alexis’s new boyfriend… He’s quite the character. I don’t dislike him, really, but he was kind of annoying, and I don’t like him with Alexis. *shrug* Finally, the episode ended in a cliffie, with Castle infected with the same thing that killed their suspect. He only has twenty-four hours to live. Eek! 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Dreamworld,” continuing from the season premiere episode, Beckett races against time to find a stolen toxin capable of killing tens of thousands of people. To make matters worse, Castle was exposed, leaving him with less than 24 hours to live. Lisa Edelstein guest stars.

Find out how they save Castle and find the stolen toxin tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, How I Met Your Mother, We Are Men, 2 Broke Girls, Sleepy Hollow, Mom, & The Blacklist.

sleepyhollow930smallSleepy Hollow was one of the pilots I most enjoyed, and now I am happy to say that so far, the show has held up its end of the bargain. I love the chemistry that Abbie and Ichabod have, as well as the instant team mentality they formed. Truth is, this show is quite creepy and does an amazing job at keeping me on the edge of my seat. How insane was that police officer being brought back by that demon? I had goosebumps—and not the happy kind. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “For the Triumph of Evil,” the evil Sandman torments the residents of Sleepy Hollow by invading their dreams; Abbie is forced to face her past and her institutionalized sister. Lyndie Greenwood guest stars.

To get your weekly fix of spooky, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, The Voice, Hostages, Dancing with the Stars, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, and The Blacklist.

theblacklist930smallI really enjoyed last week’s series premiere of the NBC’s new action series, The Blacklist. Last week, Red Reddington, one of the FBI’s most-wanted, turned himself in, but refused to speak to anyone except for rookie profiler Elizabeth Keen. Reddington offered to help the FBI take down top criminals and terrorists, but this left them wondering what the catch was—what is Reddington’s real motive?! And what is it about Keen that makes him only want to work with her? The obvious answer would be that she’s his daughter, but can it be that easy?! Last week, Reddington arranged for to Elizabeth to discover that her husband was not the man she thought he was. How will this play out? Is her husband a good guy or a bad guy? Maybe he is a spy who married her just to get close to the FBI? I’m interested to see where the show goes from the pilot—will it be more of a takedown of the week, or will it delve more into the characters, or a little bit of both?

On tonight’s episode, “The Freelancer,” Red predicts a catastrophe will occur and will stem from the work of an assassin called the Freelancer. When Red and Liz go undercover to protect the killer’s next target (Isabella Rossellini), Ressler and a rehired CIA agent monitor the duo from afar.

Find out if Red and Liz can catch the assassin before disaster strikes tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Hostages, Castle, Bones, and Sleepy Hollow.

himym930smallI decided to get back into How I Met Your Mother after reviews of the first two episodes back last week and the fact that Cristin Milioti is playing the mother. After a few seasons not watching the show, not too much has changed. To me, Alyson Hannigan is still the funniest and the parts with Marshall are still way too long. But Ted isn’t so sad anymore, and the biggest thing is that I wasn’t frustrated at any point during the two episodes, so that’s a major improvement.

Last week, the mother and Lily met on the train to Farhampton, and it was such a great meeting. They really clicked, and the chemistry between Milioti and Hannigan was amazing. And using the wedding as a framing device for storytelling and using flash forwards to let us meet Ted and the mother together is so smart. Now we can still end the series with them meeting, but still get to know their relationship. I approve.

On tonight’s episode, “Last Time in New York,” Lily discovers Ted’s list of things he wants to do in New York before he moves for Chicago and becomes frustrated that she is the only person who knows about his plans. Meanwhile, Robin and Barney try to find some alone time together before the relatives arrive for the wedding. Sherri Shepherd and Wayne Brady guest star.

See if they succeed on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Dancing with the Stars, 2 Broke Girls, and Castle.
