If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/8/14

As I write this, I’m waiting for my husband to get home from Best Buy with my new laptop! Yay! I’m gonna make it quick so I’m ready when he gets here! 😉 Temperatures all over the country and frigid (even Florida was in the 40s!), so curl up with a blanket & watch some great TV tonight. 🙂 Here are our recommendations.

Jenny’s Choice

psych18smallIt’s been a while since Psych last graced our screens (aside from the fun musical episode a few weeks ago, which doesn’t count because it didn’t fall in the current timeline of the show. 😉 ). Juliet now knows Shawn’s secret, and at first, it seemed like things were dunzo between them, but she’s forgiven him for lying, understands that they can’t come clean about it to the others, and things are looking up again for the pair. Meanwhile, Lassie is married to Marlo, and the squad has a new boss after Chief Vick was…what? Fired? It’s been so long, I don’t remember… I do know that things are kind of upside down at the station, so here’s hoping the Pineapple Gang can make it all right!

On tonight’s episode, “Lock, Stock, Some Smoking Barrels and Burton Guster’s Goblet of Fire,” when Shawn helps art thief Pierre Despereaux with an undercover operation in London to take down Interpol’s most wanted criminal, Gus tags along to attend the Harry Potter convention, but Despereaux’s assignment takes priority over wizardry fun.

Catch the season premiere tonight on USA Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Top Chef, & Chicago P.D..

chicagopd18smallExcited does not begin to explain my feelings for tonight’s series premiere of Chicago P.D., from the creators of Chicago Fire. This show follows District 21—not just the uniforms, but also the Intelligence Unit that deals with all the drugs, murder, gangs, etc. I’m really excited about the fantastic Jason Beghe as Sergeant Hank Voight heading up the Intelligence Unit, because he is what I consider to be a fierce actor who will portray the role properly. Making her return to our television screens is Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill), playing Detective Erin Lindsay, who grew up on the streets but was saved by Voight when he took her in as a teenager. I’m looking forward to seeing all the character growth and falling in love with another crime drama. What can I say? I simply can’t help myself.

On tonight’s episode, “Stepping Stone,” a grisly beheading launches the Intelligence Unit on a dangerous manhunt for an assassin with cartel ties.

To check out this all new drama, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Law & Order: SVU, Super Fun Night, The 40th Annual People’s Choice Awards, and Top Chef.

JJ’s Choice

modernfamily18smallAs always, Modern Family is one of the easiest recommendation because it is consistently great. Especially with the way the show is mining the fun moments that Lily can supply. The way she delivers her lines as the daughter of two gay dads is amazing!

On tonight’s episode, “And One to Grow On,” Phil tricks Luke into taking a dance class, but the joke’s on him when a white lie indirectly lands him in the slammer. Meanwhile, Jay and Gloria are throwing birthday parties for both Manny and Joe and are concerned Manny might be going for girls out of his league, and Mitch and Cam get a rude awakening in the cutthroat world of booking a wedding venue.

Find out if they succeed on ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Super Fun Night and The Real World.
