If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/1/13

Welcome to October! Let’s hope this month is filled with beautiful fall days and lots of mini chocolate bars. I’m also looking forward to even more series and season premieres this month as well. Let’s see what’s on tonight to start this month off right.

Megan’s Choice

ncisla101smallNCIS: LA is by far my favorite of the franchise, and what a season premiere it had last week. I was on the edge of my seat watching to see if Deeks was going to be okay and if Sam could save his wife. In the end, everyone except the bad guys lived, but whether they’re okay is another story. Deeks has lasting effects from the torture, and I’m not sure he’ll ever be the same. I was really sad to see him be so distant from Kensi, but I hope it all works out soon.

On tonight’s episode, “Impact,” Hetty calls in psychologist Nate Getz (guest star Peter Cambor) to help Sam and Deeks deal with the effects of their traumatic experience.

To see if the boys can get back on track, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NCIS, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, The Goldbergs, The Mindy Project, Trophy Wife, Lucky 7, and Person of Interest.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice

ncis101smallI was pretty disappointed with last week’s NCIS premiere. Not all of it, mind you. The computer chat between Tony & Ziva was really cute. But I’ve been reading for a while now that these would be Ziva’s last few episodes. Then it was her final two episodes. And tonight is the last time we’ll see her (on a regular basis, at least. Maybe Cote de Pablo will guest star at some point?). That means that last week, which has been touted hugely as one of her final two episodes, we didn’t see hide, nor hair of Ziva David. Sure, we saw her chat with Tony, and sure, we saw her necklace. But that’s it. It’s hard to believe they’ll be able to wrap up her story line (with and without Tony) in a single hour-long episode. That being said, it’s a must-watch for fans of the show, fans of Ziva, and fans of Tiva.

On tonight’s episode, “Past, Present, and Future,” determined to locate Ziva, Tony chases leads in Israel in search of her current whereabouts. Meanwhile, Gibbs and the team continue the hunt for Parsa and his growing terrorist ring. Joe Spano & Leslie Hope guest star.

See if they give Ziva the proper send-off the character and fans deserve tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dads, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Brooklyn Nine-Nine, 19 Kids & Counting, NCIS: LA, The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, Chopped, The Little Couple, Person of Interest, & Chicago Fire.

Kyle’s Choice

trophywife101smallOne of the season’s new comedies that really surprised me was Trophy Wife. When I first read the description, I was ready to write it off. However, the pilot instantly won me over. In last week’s premiere, we were introduced to this unique, unconventional blended family that is comprised of a man, his two ex-wives, his new young bride, and children from both his previous marriages. Add into the mix the latest wife’s best friend, and you’ve got a crazy dynamic of folks all trying to raise these children together.

While I really enjoyed Malin Akerman as the titular character in the pilot, I hope the series doesn’t solely focus on her and instead takes a more Modern Family ensemble route. This cast is really talented, and the scenes in the pilot where the entire group came together were a lot of fun. I also hope they mix things up from week to week, pairing up different family members to allow us see all the various dynamics that make up this unusual family structure.

On tonight’s episode, “Cold File,” Kate tries to take on more responsibility by helping Pete coach Bert’s soccer team. Meanwhile, Warren and Hillary accidentally spill salsa on Diane’s couch.

Find out if episode two is as great as the premiere was tonight on ABC at 9:31/8:31c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Goldbergs, Lucky 7, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Sons of Anarchy, Chopped, Face Off, Fangasm, and Knife Fight.

JJ’s Choice

newgirl101smallI’m not too enthused about this season of New Girl so far, it appears like the writers are having a little trouble with the writing for Jess and Nick as a couple and Winston in general. But it still is one of the most original quirky comedies on air at the moment, and it’s very worth sticking with!

On tonight’s episode, “Double Date,” Schmidt, Cece, Jess, and Nick are going on a double date, where Nick is caught between loyalty to his friend and to his girlfriend when he discovers a shocking secret. Meanwhile, Winston promises to get the foursome a table at an ultra-exclusive restaurant that doesn’t take reservations.

See if Winston succeeds on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Mindy Project.
