If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/24/13

I’m so glad it’s a new week! Why? Because Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the U.S. We’re cooking here at home again this year, which I love. Michael Symon’s turkey from The Chew, my mom’s green bean casserole… Yum. That does mean it’s a bit of a slower week, but we’re here to give you our recommendations from what is new. 🙂

thementalist1124smallTonight is the wrap-up of the LONG Red John arc—the backbone of the show—on The Mentalist. Last week, the CBI was shut down by the FBI after Jane announced that Bertram was Red John. Jane got back to the office just in time to see them carry out his sofa, and then his favorite teacup was dropped and smashed to smithereens. This show is never what it seems, though. So is Bertram really Red John? What’s going to happen now that the CBI is no more? So many questions, and since I’ve seen tonight’s episode, I know the answer to some of them. 😉 I can’t give away anything, but I can say it is a very satisfying wrap-up of the Red John story line, and when they show comes back in December, I’ll be right here watching to see where it goes next.

On tonight’s episode, “Red John,” Patrick Jane finally comes face-to-face with Red John, the serial killer he’s tracked since the madman murdered his wife and daughter.

See the conclusion to the Red John story line tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Guy’s Grocery Games, Restaurant Express, & On the Rocks.

tarsmallThe Amazing Race had a slow start for me this season, but last week’s episode brought me a bit of satisfaction. I really haven’t liked Leo and Jamal from the beginning because I have found their attitude to be super pompous and arrogant—well, they got served a plate of karma when Nicole & Travis U-Turned them. I don’t blame them for U-turning the Afhanimals because they did outright lie to the doctors last episode. In addition to their attitudes, I find the whole “race wives” thing with the NHL girls to be annoying, and it’s getting old fast. As if when they finish the race, they are actually going to be a couple—not in this lifetime. After having to do a speed bump the, baseball bunnies were just unable to get themselves back in the middle of the pack, so they finished last with no save this week. They were gracious and nice on the mat, which was surprising, because so far this season, they have been anything but. I’m hoping that Travis & Nicole win, because out of the teams left, they are the only ones I think are worthy of such a prize.

On tonight’s episode, “Part Like the Red Sea,” mistakes abound as the pressure of the Race gets to the final five teams in Bandung, Indonesia, and one team’s relationship turns icy.

To see which team can’t get along, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Guy’s Grocery Games, The Good Wife, and The Walking Dead.

jamieprivateschoolgirlsmallTonight, HBO kicks off an all new mockumentary series from Chris Lilley, the creator, writer, and star of Summer Heights High, We Can Be Heroes, and Angry Boys. This new series, Ja’mie: Private School Girl, follows the character of Ja’mie King, who we first met in Summer Heights High. In that series, Ja’mie was attending the public school as part of a private school exchange program. In this new 6-part show, Ja’mie is returning to her private school, Hillford Girls Grammar School, where she’s back to being the self-proclaimed diva and queen bee of the campus.

I always find these Chris Lilley shows to be hilarious. Somehow, this 39-year-old manages to portray characters of all ages, sexes, and races, and they still seem completely believable and fun. Hopefully, like his previous series, Lilley will be appearing in multiple roles, because that always adds to the fun. I can’t wait to see what craziness and completely politically-incorrect stuff he does with this new series!

On tonight’s premiere, Ja’mie performs a controversial dance in front of the school; she discovers a bronze statue will be erected in honor of the Hillford Medal winner and meets a handsome rugby player from Kelton Boys.

Find out if this new show is as funny as his others tonight on HBO at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Good Wife, The Mentalist, The Simpsons, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Defending Santa, Guy’s Grocery Games, Restaurant Express, The Walking Dead, Talking Dead, Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited, Getting On, Homeland, and Masters of Sex.
