If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/17/14

I’m excited for tomorrow night because I’m getting to go out for dinner with other adults. Believe me, in my world, that is a huge deal. No cutting up other people’s food or coloring at the dinner table… Well, at least I hope no one is going to need me to cut their meat! While I anxiously await tomorrow and my evening out, let’s see what’s on our televisions tonight to keep us entertained.

grimm117smallI’m so pleased with the writing on Grimm this season. It’s just been so much stronger than last season, in my opinion. Last week’s episode was incredibly well done and addressed some very intense story lines. Nick told Juliette that her college friend Alicia, who was staying with them because her dirt bag boyfriend beat her, is a Wesen. Juliette was very upset that Alicia didn’t tell her herself, but after chatting with Rosalee, she realized it was more about Alicia’s fear of being accepted and that she just needed to give it time. When Alicia’s ex, Joe, showed up to the house, he got into a scuffle with Nick, and then the girls got after him. He came into the wrong house! There was no one there afraid of his Wesen side and no sympathy as Juliette and Alicia continued to kick is ass all over the place. In the end, Alicia showed her Wesen side to Juliette, and they hugged it out. Such a great story line!

Also in that episode, a case brought Hank into the path of his sexy physiotherapist again when her brother was an eye witness in a gang murder case. During the course of the investigation, we found out that she and her brother are both yaguarete (looks a lot like a cheetah). The sister saved the day at the end by changing forms and taking out a gang member by ripping out his throat. Hank was still interested in a relationship with her after that, but she wasn’t. I hope she changes her mind, because they’re great together.

On tonight’s episode, “The Good Soldier,” Nick and Hank investigate the mysterious death of a Wesen soldier.

To unravel the mystery of the Wesen soldier, tune in to NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, Hawaii Five-0, Bones, Undercover Boss, and Enlisted.

raisinghope117smallI still really love Raising Hope. I love that they’ve seamlessly woven Jimmy & Sabrina’s marriage into the show. We still see just as much of them at the Chance house, even though they’re living in their own place. Last week, Virginia’s cousin Delilah found out Maw-Maw was still alive and came back proclaiming to be a big success, except really, she was horribly down on her luck. She started arguing that Virginia and Burt were mooching off Maw-Maw, and of course, she and Virginia were at each other’s throats. Maw-Maw said she could move in, but only on the condition that the first person between Virginia & Delilah to break the peace between the pair would be banished from the house. Delilah broke her own arm and blamed it on Virginia, so Maw-Maw threw them out. In the end, it forced Virginia to accept a promotion at work that would give her much better pay, and Maw-Maw said that was just the kick in the butt she’d needed and was her plan all along. Delilah was kicked to the curb. Meanwhile, Jimmy & Sabrina wanted to go to CoverFest, but they couldn’t find a babysitter for Hope. Watching their search to find & keep the one they liked was pretty funny.

On tonight’s episode, “Hot Dish,” Virginia offers to give Sabrina some much-needed cooking lessons. But when Jimmy proclaims that his wife’s casserole is better than his mom’s, it brings out Virginia’s competitive side and she enters herself and her daughter-in-law in the Hot Dish competition. To ease the tension, Burt also invites his mother (guest star Shirley Jones) to enter the contest.

See who wins the Hot Dish competition tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, Last Man Standing, The Neighbors, Grimm, Hawaii Five-0, Enlisted, Blue Bloods, & Helix.

enlisted117smallLast week, Fox kicked off the new military comedy series, Enlisted. In the premiere, soldier Pete Hill was demoted after he punched his commanding offer. He found himself reassigned and put in charge of a rag-tag platoon of misfits—two of whom are his younger brothers. Now Hill must use his combat training and experience to whip these soldiers into shape so they are no longer the laughingstock of the base.

When I first watched the pilot back in the summer, I wasn’t really sold on the series. However, watching it again last week, I thought it was a lot of fun. I like the cast and the relationship between the brothers, and I’m interested to see what kind of wackiness the writers come up with.

On tonight’s episode, “Randy Get Your Gun,” Derrick helps a dejected Randy develop a new mindset in order to pass his marksmanship test, while Pete and Jill set out to determine who’s the better soldier by competing in a series of unorthodox challenges.

Find out who wins tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Neighbors, Grimm, Bones, Raising Hope, Helix, and Banshee.
