If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/18/13

October is just flying by, and I really wish it wouldn’t, because that means I need to start Christmas shopping soon. (Between you and me, my bank account is begging me not to shop. LOL) On a bright note, this television season has been going strong since the beginning, and it shows no sign of slowing down. Let’s see what’s on to keep you entertained on this Friday night—or setting your DVR for so that you can go out on the town. 🙂

Megan’s Choice

bluebloods1018smallBlue Bloods was so incredibly good last week. I loved seeing Erin and Jack in the courtroom together, and I especially loved seeing Jack being protective over Erin when Delgado took the courtroom hostage. There’s a lot of work to be done between Erin and Jack if they ever plan on really being back together again, but who knows. Sometimes, where there was love once, there can be love again. I also really enjoyed Jamie’s story line, where he stood up to his superior in order to do what he felt was right and go with the little boy to the hospital. It was the right call, and it was another glance into the awesome character that Jamie is. This show hasn’t let me down yet, and I don’t think it’s ever going to.

On tonight’s episode, “The Truth About Lying,” a teen girl dies after she is seemingly pushed in front of a subway car by a homeless man; Frank is irritated by having to meet with the new Inspector General (Bebe Neuwirth).

To find out why the homeless man did it, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Hawaii Five-0, What Not to Wear, and MasterChef: Junior.

Jenny’s Choice #1

lastmanstanding1018smallIt’s a Halloween night for me tonight, and my first pick is Last Man Standing. I’m really enjoying this show still. Mandy & Kyle are cute…and kind of perfect…together. While I still don’t like Ryan as a person—he’s very condescending and uppity—I do like his relationship with Kristin. Not so much that they’re perfect together, but I like that she’s happy, most of the time, and last week, after Mandy talked to him, the fact that he got a job at Outdoor Man was really sweet.

On tonight’s episode, “Haunted House,” when Vanessa tries to relive her PTA glory days by taking over the Halloween haunted house fundraiser for Boyd’s school, her ideas prove too scary for him. Now, Mike must find a way to reassure Boyd and help him face his fears.

See how spooky Vanessa goes tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

Jenny’s Choice #2

theneighbors1018smallThe Neighbors is one of my favorite comedies on TV. It never disappoints. Last week, the Debbie/Jackie story line was fun, and the Larry/Marty was great, but the best part of the episode was Amber/Reggie watching the nature documentary about the elephant & the duckling—and the comparison to themselves & the two families. It was absolutely perfect.

On tonight’s episode, “Challoweenukah,” when Larry hears the story of Chanukah, he becomes instantly enamored with the holiday and announces that he wants to combine his two favorite holidays – Halloween and Chanukah – to create “Challoweenukah.” When no one shows up for the first seven nights of the new holiday, Larry decides to publicize it by giving out candy to kids at the local playground, getting him in trouble with the police. Meanwhile, Marty and Debbie’s arch-nemesis couple challenges them to a family Halloween costume contest. Kiersten Lyons, Alexander Chaplin, & Lilli Birdsell guest star.

Find out how they get Larry out of trouble tonight on ABC at 8:31/7:31c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, Hawaii Five-0, & Blue Bloods.
