If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/12/13

A week ago, our weather was beautiful, especially for November. Today? Went from 60 at noon, to 38 by 7pm. That is crazy! We may actually have to turn the heater on finally. *laugh* Today isn’t going to be much better, so tonight will be a great night to curl up and watch some great new TV. Here’s our recommendations. 🙂

ncisla1112smallLast week’s NCIS: LA was all about the railroad—a murder on the railroad, specifically. There were a lot of great moments during the episode, including Sam disarming the explosive and jumping out of the way just before the train passed him. But the best part was Kensi and Deeks going undercover. Deeks was priceless playing the uptight, OCD germaphobe. He was great, and the whole part with the two of them in the bathroom, hiding from the railroad lady, was hysterical. I love this show so much. It never fails to make me happy.

On tonight’s episode, “Fallout,” when an antiterrorism device is stolen, the team must quickly find the suspect and the device before an attack is made against Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Hetty realizes the case is bringing her back to someone from her past.

Find out more about Hetty’s past tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., NCIS, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Little People, Big World, The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, Chopped, Person of Interest, & Chicago Fire.

ravenswood1112smallI am officially all caught up on Ravenswood, and now I can hardly wait to see more! It’s not often that a show makes one of the main cast a ghost right at the end of the first episode. Miranda finally became visible to the rest of the group last week, instead of just Caleb, which makes sense, because she can’t help them if they can’t see her. Caleb is officially living at the Collins’s house after working out with Miranda’s Uncle Raymond about chores in exchange. I’m a little curious to see where the relationship between Remy and Luke goes, seeing as her father despises him—it’s not a drama until there are star-crossed lovers. Honestly, this show has some great creepy twists and turns, so be sure to check it out.

On tonight’s episode, “The Devil Has a Face,” Luke is unnerved by events from the seance; Olivia learns her and Miranda’s families share a history; Caleb encounters a long-lost relative; Remy and Caleb probe a new clue about the town’s past.

To find out who Caleb encounters, tune in to ABC Family at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: LA, The Voice, Dads, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Trophy Wife, The Goldbergs, Scandal, Person of Interest, and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

brooklyn991112smallLast week on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jake arrested a suspect before he had enough—or even any—evidence, other than his hunch. He only had 48 hours to make the case; otherwise, he had to release the suspect, who planned to sue to the department for false arrest. So the rest of the precinct cancelled their plans and banded together to help Peralta make his case.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is easily my favorite of this year’s new comedies (and possibly my favorite new show of the season, period). While I find Andy Samberg hilarious, the rest of the ensemble are also given a lot of great material, and the whole cast works so well together! I really enjoy the relationship between Peralta and the captain—they are always at odds, but you can also see they really do respect and care about one another. This show just seems to get better each week, and tonight’s episode is another fun one—I just wish it didn’t have to follow that disaster called Dads.

On tonight’s episode, “Old School,” Jake looks forward to a day spent with a former crime reporter (Stacy Keach) whom he admires, but the visit is tarnished when he learns that his comments about the precinct were considered on the record. Elsewhere, Terry and Charles work with Rosa to help her be less imposing on the witness stand.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy, Chopped, Face Off: Naked and Painted, Naked Vegas, and Awkward.

JJ’s Choice

themindyproject1112smallWhile still an uneven comedy at times, the addition of Adam Pally and the writing this season on The Mindy Project have been more consistent than the first season. It’s an insane workplace comedy that especially nails the episodes where Mindy works her romantic comedy side. Especially because these episodes feel like the pilot, which was an exceptionally good comedy, actually.

On tonight’s episode, “You Got Sext,” Mindy tells Danny she has a crush, and he assumes it’s him instead of Cliff, the lawyer. Meanwhile, Morgan and Peter find Mindy’s phone and respond to a text from Cliff, which starts off innocently, but escalates into something that may lead to unintended romantic consequences.

Find out how on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching New Girl and Awkward.
