If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/29/14

I hope you all are staying warm! It’s freezing across the country & Canada—unless you live in Florida, in which case… Pfffft! *laugh* I know I’m not the only one ready for Old Man Winter to go away and usher in spring, so to console us, here’s what we’re recommending for TV tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

chicagopd129smallI’m really enjoying Chicago PD still. I love having Sophia Bush back on my TV each week, and I really love Jon Seda’s Antonio & Jesse Lee Sofer’s Jay. Last week, the squad was tracking down the people who were bring cop killer bullets and weapons into the country. I loved watching them get the wife to tell the truth, and then Olinsky going in the car with the bad guys and having to keep talking his way out of trouble was great. I’m worried about Ruzek and the effects of the shooting from a couple of weeks ago. And what’s up with Halstead’s confrontation with the creepy young guy and his father? What happened between the kid and the little girl Halstead mentioned? (Who I’m guessing was maybe his sister?) I can’t wait to find out more about that story…

The one thing I’m disappointed about is that on their sister show, Chicago Fire, Severide’s sister was kidnapped because Severide humiliated the guy who had come to beat up or kill the dude at the firehouse after the dude’s brother drove drunk and hit the light pole, severly injuring the guy’s cousin. We got a few mentions of it in that same week’s episode of Chicago PD, but they couldn’t do anything because it hadn’t been 48 hours and there’d been no proof that she’d been kidnapped and no demands made. This week, Fire was preempted for the President’s speech, so we get no resolution to that story line yet…and I don’t know if we’ll hear about it at all tonight on PD.

On tonight’s episode, “Now Is Always Temporary,” more is learned about Halstead’s dislike of the Rodiger family, and it’s family relationships all around as Olinsky shows a paternal side with his daughter Lexi (guest star Alina Taber) in an attempt to protect her and as Voight’s trying to help his son who has recently been released from jail. Meanwhile the Intelligence Unit investigates a counterfeiting operation after discovering some high end cloth-like paper. Sergeant Platt (guest star Amy Morton) sends Atwater and Burgess to arrest a hoarder where they discover more than just clutter.

Find out what they find tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

superfunnightsmallI know there are still a lot of critics who haven’t fallen in love with Super Fun Night yet, and those critics are insane. Honestly this show never fails to make me laugh. I cannot say enough good things about this cast and these writers. Last week Kimmie finally lost her virginity to James, and then starting spending so much time with him that Helen-Alice and Marika started feeling left out. In the end they worked it out, but not before some hilarity about hiding stains happened. I love how Kimmie and Marika have been hiding stains from Helen-Alice for years. We also saw Richard telling James all the reason why James must love Kimmie but you could tell that he was really saying them because he loves Kimmie. I used to want Kimmie and Richard together but I’m not sure Richard deserves Kimmie because he didn’t see her worth to begin with. Time will tell.

On tonight’s episode, “Lucindervention”, Richard slides back into bad, old habits when his ex comes to town; Ruby and Marika have different ideas about a night out together.

To see what trouble Richard gets into tune into ABC at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching Chicago PD, Law & Order: SVU, Top Chef, Suburgatory, American Idol, Opposite Worlds, & Wahlburgers.

fleming129smallTonight, BBC America kicks off the new 4-part scripted miniseries Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond, which takes a look at the early life of Ian Fleming and how his adventures was just as exciting, eventful, and sex-filled as the famous spy he created. The series stars Dominic Cooper (The Hour) as the pleasure-seeking author-to-be, Rupert Evans (World Without End) as Fleming’s overshadowing brother, and Lesley Manville (Maleficent) as their mother. The series follows Fleming as he is recruited by the Director of Naval Intelligence, Admiral John Godfrey (Samuel West, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell). However, Fleming’s knack for espionage quickly finds him trading his desk job for adventures in the field.

I’ve been a fan of the Bond films for a long time, so I’m interested to check out this take on the life of the man who started it all. It’s got a great cast and sounds like it will try to recapture the fun, mystery, and adventure of the franchise.

On tonight’s episode, Fleming begins work with British naval intelligence and cooks up a scheme to get information from two captured German submariners.

Spy on Fleming’s early life tonight on BBC America at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Suburgatory, Super Fun Night, Revolution, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, American Horror Story, Top Chef, Men at Work, Psych, Opposite Worlds, and Workaholics.

JJ’s Choice

meljoey2012smallABC Family has started back up with Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey, and both have reached a same point in the show where some of the leads might end up in a relationship. On Melissa & Joey, it appears like they will be more successful, and it is really great to see them together and building a relationship slowly.

On tonight’s episode, “The New Deal,” Joe’s new job keeps him from any quality time with Mel, and in an attempt to spend time with him, Mel risks getting him fired for a second time in two weeks. Meanwhile, Ryder witnesses a robbery and discovers that his interview with the local news has been turned into a viral video.

Find out what the viral video contains on ABC Family at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching (or storing for watching over the summer) Arrow, American Idol, Suburgatory, Baby Daddy, The Tomorrow People, Super Fun Night, and The Real World.

Jenny’s Choice #2

menatwork129smallLast week’s Men at Work was kind of heartbreaking. Neal proposed to Amy—having set up this whole elaborate, romantic plan with Gibbs’ and Milo’s help—and she turned him down. She decided she wasn’t ready for that step since she went from her parents’ house to college and then to living with Neal. She needed time on her own, to figure out who she was. It’s understandable, but man, was everyone (including me!) shocked when she said no. I have no idea why the show went there. It was kind of nice having one of the four guys in a sweet, steady relationship. *shrug*

Given the fact that Neal and Amy aren’t together anymore and the episode title & summary for tonight’s episode, does that mean PJ (Amy’s father and the owner of the magazine the guys work for – aka J.K. Simmons) is gone, too?

On tonight’s episode, “Holy New Boss!” Myron (guest star David Krumholtz, Numb3rs), the new boss at Full Steam, has promised to fire one employee by the end of the day. When Neal shows up to work drunk, the guys rally to sober him up and save his job.

See if the guys can save Neal’s job tonight on TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, Law & Order: SVU, Psych, The Exes, Top Chef, & Wahlburgers.
