If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/22/13

I have had one of those weeks where my hormones make me an insane woman. I don’t care what other women say… It’s true that sometimes, our hormones make us worthy of flying a broomstick. After some chocolate, TV, and downtime, I am back to my usual semi-sweet self. Now I’m looking forward to a busy weekend of Santa Claus parades and working on Christmas presents for extended family with the kids. Although before my weekend can truly begin, we need to see what amazing television is on tonight, so let’s take a look.

hawaiifiveo1122smallAt first, I was worried that moving to Fridays was going to hurt Hawaii Five-0, but in fact, I love it! I’m enjoying being able to watch my TV boyfriend, Alex O’Loughlin first, and then my favorite crime family at 10pm with Blue Bloods. Honestly, it’s been a great addition to my TV week. Speaking of great additions… How incredible has it been to have Catherine on the team full-time now? I think it was a genius move for the writers and it’s a help with Kono being in and out of the scene. Kono learned last episode that Adam faked his death, so she is off to find him because she simply cannot live without him. I’m not sure that’s going to be a good idea, but it will make for good TV. Last week, we also saw McGarrett work with Grover when the Governor sent them to serve a warrant to a young hacker named Ian. All hell broke loose, and the two men were forced to become allies in order to save the day. In the end, the two walked away with more respect for each other and a mutual enemy on the loose…giving us a new story line to follow. I’m intrigued. Are you?

On tonight’s episode, “Hau’oli La Ho’omaika’i,” a secret service agent is murdered while the president is traveling to Oahu; as Thanksgiving approaches, McGarrett’s Aunt Deb (Carol Burnett) visits and shares a stunning secret.

To see what secret Aunt Deb has, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, Blue Bloods, Haven, and Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta.

theneighbors1122smallThe Neighbors is one of my favorite comedies on TV still, and it makes me laugh so hard each and every week. Last week, Debbie was preparing to take the qualifying exam to get into business school. Marty got Dick to tutor her, but for a while, no one was sure she’d pass—especially the math portion. But she did, which is great. Meanwhile, Reggie’s “soul mate,” Jane, showed up, and when Reggie turned her away again, she enrolled in high school—with enhanced breasts, no less. She was immediately VERY popular with the boys in school, which she used to to get Reggie a “crew.” While at a party at Reggie’s house, Amber felt left out and left, coming back soon after all…gussied up, trying to look hot and sexy. Reggie thought she did look hot, but again declared that he liked her for her. It was cute.

On tonight’s episode, “Thanksgiving is No Schmuck Bait,” Marty and Debbie are hoping for an uneventful Thanksgiving, but their hopes are dashed when Marty’s father arrives with a suitcase and informs the family that, after fifty years of marriage, he and Marty’s mother are getting divorced…and, oh yeah, he’s moving in. Jackie’s parents arrive from Zabvron just in time to witness the fallout and learn about the peculiarities of human relationships. Stacy Keach, Debra Mooney, Reginald VelJohnson, Meredith Baxter, & Patrick O’Sullivan guest star.

See if the families can celebrate together without killing anyone tonight on ABC at 8:31/7:31c.

doctorwho1122smallI never really watched Doctor Who growing up. I’d see the occasional fifth doctor episode on PBS, but always thought it was an odd, low-quality show. However, with the 2005 reboot of the series, I’ve become an avid fan. Tonight, BBC America airs the docudrama An Adventure in Space and Time, which is a dramatic retelling of the origins of the series and the people who started this phenomenon that is still popular 50 years later. The film stars David Bradley as the first Doctor, William Hartnell; Brian Cox as Sydney Newman, Head of Drama for the BBC; and Jessica Raine as Verity Lambert, the first producer of the series.

I don’t really know much about how Doctor Who first started, so I’m looking forward to both learning more about the events surrounding the creation of the series and just being entertained. With the big 50th anniversary special airing tomorrow, this seems like the perfect way to get my fill of Who as I count down the hours until tomorrow afternoon!

Check out the new docudrama tonight to learn more about this fan favorite show tonight on BBC America at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Neighbors, Bones, Raising Hope, Haven, and Doctor Who Explained.

Jenny’s Choice #2

bones1122smallLast week’s Bones featured Brennan serving on a jury, which is something I’ve been waiting to see since the beginning. I think they could’ve done more, made her even more annoying, but what I did like was the range of emotions she showed when she realized she’d basically convinced the rest of the jury to vote the man not guilty when, in fact, he was the killer. Thankfully, they worked together and got him for another murder, along with his sister, but it still weighed heavily on Brennan. Angela was none too happy, either! LOL

Tonight is another fun episode with a big relationship/wedding-type story line in addition to the case of the week—which looks disgusting. Just sayin’. I’ve been waiting to see this one ever since I heard about it, so I’m excited.

On tonight’s episode, “The Mystery in the Meat,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of a food scientist whose remains were tossed in a meat grinder and mixed into cans of stew served in a school cafeteria. When the team uncovers the scientist’s newest—and highly lucrative—food invention, they begin to track the trail of jealous competitors in the multi-million dollar food industry. Meanwhile, Angela plans a post-wedding bachelorette party for Brennan and it gets crazier than intended.

Enjoy the crazy post-wedding bachelorette party tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, Hawaii Five-0, Raising Hope, & Blue Bloods.
