If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/19/14

My Saturday flew by. I watched a lot of TV, played some cards with the hubs, and tried a new soup with ground turkey and cheese tortellini for dinner (it was yum!). I’m hoping I have a relaxing Sunday, but if not, at least there’s some great TV on tonight to make up for it! Here’s what we recommend. 🙂

guysgrocerygamessmallI’ve really been enjoying Guy’s Grocery Games. Guy is so much fun to watch, whatever show he’s hosting, and this is no exception. I love how he jokes with the contestants, teases them about the challenges, and salivates over the food the judges get to try. I also usually love the judges on this one. I’m just glad my least-favorite judge on Food Network—Geoffrey Zakarian—hasn’t been on. *laugh*

On tonight’s season finale, “Cart Wars,” the chefs are tasked to make tacos without tortillas, taco seasoning, and ground beef; Guy challenges the chefs to make him a sandwich using only frozen food; two chefs must make a super seafood dish.

See which competing chef takes home the money tonight on Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Cutthroat Kitchen.

thefollowing119smallI am so excited for the return of The Following tonight. This show quickly became one of my favorite suspense thrillers on TV when it debuted last year. Kevin Bacon has been impeccable in this, but the rest of the cast is also superb. When we left them, Joe was believed to be dead, with the FBI rounding up the rest of the followers that they could find. We also watched as Claire and Ryan were stabbed and fighting for their lives. Unfortunately, I didn’t believe it was over at that point, and I don’t think any of us really did. We are going to have another wild season of unexpected events and deaths, so let’s get this twisted party started.

On tonight’s episode, “Resurrection,” one year after Joe Carrol’s death, Ryan is trying to adjust to going back to his ordinary life. However, a new series of killings raises the question of whether Joe is actually dead or if his legacy has lived on.

To see if Joe Carrol does indeed live to reign more terror, tune in to FOX at a special night & time at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching Girls and True Detective.

sherlock119smallTonight, the third series (season) of Sherlock finally comes to PBS. When we last left Baker Street, up on a rooftop, Moriarty told Sherlock that he had three gunmen targeting John, Mrs. Hudson, and Lestrade, and if he didn’t kill himself, his friends would die. Afterwards, Moriarty pulled out a gun and shot himself in the head. Sherlock, believing it was the only way to save his friends, dived off the building as Watson watched in horror. John rushed to the sidewalk to find the lifeless body of his best friend.

The third season picks up two years after the events of the finale. How did Sherlock manage to survive this seemingly fatal fall? What has Sherlock been up to in the last couple of years? How will his friends take the news that he is still alive? It’s amazing that the same people who gave us such a lackluster seventh series of Doctor Who are able to deliver such a wonderful and delightful third series of Sherlock—these three episodes are some of the show’s finest work as of yet! I loved tonight’s premiere—it’s a great blend of humor, drama, and action. It’s a shame this series only gets three episodes per season!

On tonight’s episode, “The Empty Hearse,” Watson has gotten on with his life, but can’t help but wish his old pal was still with him; and that wish just may come true when London is threatened with a terrorist attack.

Find out how Watson reacts to Sherlock being back tonight on PBS at 9:58/8:58c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Following, Downton Abbey, Guy’s Grocery Games, Cutthroat Kitchen, True Detective, Looking, Shameless, and Episodes.
