If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/11/13

I never have the Monday blues, simply because there’s so much great TV on. After a pretty good weekend, even though it was slow for TV, I’m ready to curl up and watch all the new stuff on tonight. How about you? Check out our recommendations. 🙂

bones1111smallLast week, we spent some time in Buenos Aires, watching Booth and Brennan on their working honeymoon on Bones. They went just to have a normal honeymoon, but it’s Booth and Brennan. They don’t know how to do normal. Brennan wanted to visit the morgue to look at some old remains, and while there, she quickly figured out there’d been a murder. In the end, it was hard to see the murderer arrested, because she’d killed her grandfather, who was a Nazi from Germany who’d defected to Buenos Aires. He wasn’t a good guy, and when she found out who he was, when he told her all his Nazi…stuff would be hers, she flipped out, grabbed one of his Nazi gold bars, bashing him over the head. Meanwhile, back in Washington, Hodgins and Angela were having a doozy of a time babysitting Christine. Half the time, they were having fun, seeing both kids playing together. The rest of the time, they were frazzled trying to keep up with two kids. They both said they want a second baby. Will see see another baby soon?

On tonight’s episode, “The Dude in the Dam,” when they encounter the murder of a failed model whose only source of income was from his sperm donations, the Jeffersonian team finds that his killer could have been anyone who had been tricked by his falsified records. Hodgins plays host to a fly larva.

Find out what records the man faked tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Sleepy Hollow, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, The Blacklist, & Castle.

sleepyhollow1111smallSleepy Hollow is one of those shows that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time, but also manages to make you giggle. There’s something amazing about the way the writers deal with all the scary stuff, like demons and horsemen, with introducing Ichabod to the 21st century. The scene at the baseball diamond was hilarious! I also enjoyed seeing the relationship between Ichabod and Abbie—they are becoming very close, and the chemistry is fabulous. Last episode, we also saw John Noble guest star as the Sin Eater, and he was perfectly dramatic and eerie as usual. Honestly, if you aren’t watching this show already, you are missing out for sure.

On tonight’s episode, “The Midnight Ride,” Abbie and Ichabod find hidden clues to sabotage the evil in Sleepy Hollow; Abbie gets a surprise visit from Andy Brooks.

To see how Abbie handles the surprise visit, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, The Voice, Mike & Molly, Mom, Hostages, 2 Broke Girls, Hart of Dixie, The Blacklist, and Diners, Drive Ins and Dives.

castle1111smallLast week, Castle took a slightly different approach to its mystery of the week. As a last resort, Alexis asked her father to help her investigate the 15-year-old wrongful conviction of a man on death row, who was about to be executed. Castle believed that helping Alexis solve the case was the only way for him get back in her good graces after he insulted her boyfriend. So the pair went on a road trip to Pennsylvania to work on the case.

It was fun seeing Alexis and Castle work together again. It reminded me of that episode a while back when Alexis was kidnapped abroad and she showed her smarts in helping with her own rescue—this crime-solving gene seems to run in the family! While I personally saw nothing wrong with what Castle said to Alexis and side with his opinions on her moving in with her (kind of scuzzy) boyfriend, hopefully the hug at the end of last week’s episode means things are once again okay between her and her father. Castle and Beckett need to get back to planning their wedding and not worry about a rift within the family!

On tonight’s episode, “A Murder is Forever,” as Castle and Beckett investigate the homicide of a popular relationship therapist, their theory for the motive for her murder shifts: The killer may not have sought her high-profile client list, but instead wanted a rare, pricey object she possessed.

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

dwtssmallAfter a couple of seasons off (the last season I actually finished all the way through was Season 10, with Nicole Scherzinger winning), I decided to pick up this season with the line-up of stars and the loss of the results show. The stars this season did not disappoint, and the fact that there is one less hour of this show to keep up with isn’t bad either. But to me, the judges have become too weak, and it appears like the show has become a popularity contest even more than before. With Leah (whom I love as an actress, but doesn’t dance that well) and Bill (great personality, clunky dancer) still in the competition and Brant and Christina already gone, I’m only watching for Amber and Elizabeth.

On tonight’s episode, “Trio Challenge,” in the first round, the dancers take on a ballroom style they haven’t done before now. And in the second round, the couples dance with an eliminated pro or troupe member as part of dynamic trio. And this dance will be a Latin dance the celebrity hasn’t danced before. And the episode finished with another elimination.

Find out how the celebrities do and who has to leave the competition on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Mom, and Castle.
