If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/4/13

Daylight savings time is only great for people who have either no children or teenagers, because younger kids just get up an hour earlier. On the bright side, it means that winter is almost here, and that means SNOW… Don’t judge me. I love snow. 🙂 While I drink some coffee to stay awake after my early morning wake up with the kids, let’s see what’s on tonight.

thevoicelogosmallThe Voice really delivered last week during the Knock-out rounds; such incredible talent this year! I honestly don’t know how the judges do it, because in almost every single one of the battles, an extremely talented singer went home. The new addition of a steal in this round worked out really well, and now, each team is going to the live shows with five singers. So far, my favorites are Shelbie Z, Austin Jenckes, Will Champlin, and Caroline Pennell. I’m hoping they all survive the first week of live shows.

On tonight’s episode, “The Live Shows Premiere,” Adam’s and Blake’s artists sing live for your votes and a trip to the Top 12; Xtina performs with Flo Rida.

To see how these two teams face off tonight, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Sleepy Hollow, Bones, Mike & Molly, Hart of Dixie, Mom, 2 Broke Girls, Hostages, and The Blacklist.

bones114smallOn the last new episode of Bones, fans got rewarded for the long wait, the heartache, the ups and downs of eight seasons of off-and-on feelings between the two…when Booth and Bones finally got married. The case was okay—nothing special…but the ceremony was more than I could’ve hoped for. Most of the key players in their lives were there (minus their daughter—the twin girls who play Christine both had meltdowns on set because of how many people were there, so HH & SN opted to leave them out, rather than show a crying little girl, which makes sense—and a few others, like Gordon Gordon Wyatt), the vows were beautiful, and we finally got to hear Brennan’s letter to Booth that she wrote in season 2 when she & Hodgins were trapped in the buried car. It was truly a wedding worth the wait.

On tonight’s episode, “The Nazi on the Honeymoon,” while honeymooning in Buenos Aires, Brennan and Booth can’t just relax on vacation. So, instead, they decide to help Raphael Valenza (guest star Joaquim De Almeida), a local detective and huge fan of Brennan’s books, solve the murder of a Nazi war criminal whose remains were found in an historic mass grave. Meanwhile, back in Washington, D.C., Hodgins and Angela struggle to take care of Christine while Brennan and Booth are away.

Take a trip to Buenos Aires tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Sleepy Hollow, The Blacklist, & Castle.

sleepyhollow114smallDue to baseball, it’s been three weeks since we last had a new episode of Sleepy Hollow. Last time, a boy speaking Middle English mysteriously appeared in town. Abbie and Ichabod figured out that the boy was from the lost colony of Roanoke—a settlement in the woods of Sleepy Hollow that appeared to be trapped in time. The Roanoke settlers were infected with some sort of plague, which started spreading to the residents of Sleepy Hollow when the boy crossed the border. After stopping the spread of the disease, Ichabod discovered that the colonists were not actually real and were just a ruse created by the Horseman in order to cause the outbreak.

I like how this show both treats its ludicrous subject matter completely seriously, but also has a lot of fun at the same time—like the stuff last episode with Ichabod being confounded by plastic and plastic packaging. I’m really excited for tonight’s new episode because Fringe star John Noble joins the cast for the start of a multi-episode arc.

On tonight’s episode, “The Sin Eater,” when Ichabod disappears, his wife appears to Abbie in a vision with a warning about the Headless Horseman’s return to Sleepy Hollow, so Abbie consults a mysterious recluse for clues about how the missing Crane can be rid of his nemesis once and for all.

Find out how Abbie finds Ichabod and what she learns tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Hostages, Castle, The Blacklist, Bones, Hart of Dixie, and Steven Universe.

mikemolly114smallThe wait for new Mike & Molly episodes is over. To me, this has always been a solid comedy, not one that’s always laugh out loud, but Melissa McCarthy makes this show! Let’s see how this season progresses, especially after a funny, but not-too-buzzy finale.

Last season ended with a tornado hitting Chicago. This ruined Mike and Vince’s business, in an attempt by Mike to make money for an IVF treatment. And Captain Murphy and Peggy got back together after Mike had to deal with their breakup.

On tonight’s episode, “Molly Unleashed,” Molly makes a huge decision in a career and decides to become a writer.

Find out if it works out on the fourth season premiere on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Dancing with the Stars, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, and Mom.
