If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/3/14

What a crazy football game last night! I was rooting for Denver (being in KC, they’re the closest to my hometown), and they got their behinds kicked. Like…bad. LOL But the Brooklyn Nine-Nine was good, so I guess that helped. 😉 There’s lots on tonight to help take the sting out of last night’s loss for those Broncos fans, so check out our recommendations. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

castle23smallMy first pick tonight is the new episode of Castle. Last week was supposed to be this ep, but it was put off for a week. The last new ep, though, was another great one, a rip on the “Miley Cyrus and other teen pop stars in the news.” You kinda had to feel bad for the girl, who’d pretty much been railroaded into becoming who she was. And then to find out that her mom was the one who killed her lookalike to cover up the fact that she’d hired the girl to pose in a compromising position with her daughter’s ex-boyfriend in the hopes of breaking up her and her current boyfriend—who was a really good guy and helping her to get away from the life she no longer was happy living. My favorite parts had to be everything with Alexis—from talking about the singer in front of her, to going to her apartment to switch phones, etc. And then, joy of joys, it seemed at the end like Alexis was going to break up with Pi. One can only hope, yeah? 😉

On tonight’s episode, “Dressed to Kill,” when the assistant to Modern Fashion Magazine’s dictatorial editor Matilda King (guest star Franes fisher) is found murdered, Castle and Beckett are thrust into the glitzy, ruthless world of high fashion in their search for the killer. Meanwhile Beckett’s history in the modelling world gets her access to a very special wedding surprise.

See Castle’s reaction to Beckett’s modeling past and what the wedding surprise is tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

Megan’s Choice

teenwolf23smallTeen Wolf has been a favorite of mine since it premiered three seasons ago. Still hard to believe it’s been that long. This season has been fairly strong, and I’m appreciative of the great character growth for the entire cast. Last episode, we watched the group run around scared because of a murderer and then have a wicked black light party thrown by the awesome Danny. I love how this show isn’t afraid to go show gay relationships like they’re no big deal—it’s about time more shows did that! Danny and his black light, body painting party while flirting it up with Ethan was intense and so well written. The other thing I find curious is how they have been walking a fine line with Stiles’s sexuality. He’s liked girls from the beginning, but he’s always been a little curious about boys, too—I’m hoping they finally just take the plunge and make Stiles bisexual. It’s clear he’s definitely pondering it. Overall, it was a very good episode, and I’m looking forward to more this week.

On tonight’s episode, “Silverfinger,” Scott’s friends vow to protect him against an enemy; Stiles asks Melissa’s help to pinpoint what is wrong with him.

To see what enemy the friends are standing against, tune in to MTV at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching The Following, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Intelligence, Almost Human, Bitten, Being Human, Rachel vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, Hart of Dixie, and Buy This Restaurant.

Kyle’s Choice

beinghuman23smallLast week on Being Human, Josh tried to return to work, but soon found himself struggling to contain the wolf. Meanwhile, Sally used her newly gained encyclopedic knowledge of spells to cure Nora’s scars; and Aidan was shocked to discover that Kenny was the new vampire boss. As the two guys were talking, they were alerted to a massacre of vampires back at Kenny’s lair, and upon reviewing the security footage, they discovered that it was Susana, Aidan’s wife, who did the killing.

The series has set up some interesting mysteries so far this season. What is going on with Josh, and what effect did the premature ending of the spell do to the wolf inside him? Who is this mysterious girl Sally keeps seeing as she travels through time in the apartment? And what is up with Aidan’s wife—why did she come back, what is she after, and will Aidan find out the truth that she killed their son? And speaking of Susana, how does Kenny have the vampires on video surveillance—I thought they couldn’t be captured on camera?!

On tonight’s episode, “Panic Womb,” Aidan’s vampire relationships continue as his human romance with Kat becomes more serious; a couple gives Josh and Nora a glimpse into their possible future; and Sally asks an old friend for help solving the mystery of “Lil’ Smokie.”

Find out what the future holds for Josh & Nora tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Intelligence, Castle, Hollywood Game Night, Almost Human, The Following, Switched at Birth, Archer, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, Bitten, and Teen Wolf.

Jenny’s Choice #2

hollywoodgamenighttop102013asmallI love love love Hollywood Game Night. Season two has been even better than season one was. The new games are just so much fun. I love the one where they’re blindfolded and have to spell a word using the clue given and by feeling out the foam letters. Like Kyle, I hate when a celebrity doesn’t seem to be taking it seriously. Fortunately, that doesn’t happen very often. More often than not, the celebs are relaxed, having fun, but really trying their best to win.

On tonight’s episode, “Orange is the New Game Night,” two contestants will lead a team of three celebrities, which include Chris Colfer, Rosie O’Donnell, Penny Marshall, Taryn Manning, Donald Faison, and Kaley Cuoco in hopes of winning the $25,000 grand prize. A series of unique party games will bring out the best, funniest, and most competitive sides of some of Hollywood’s most beloved stars.

See which team comes out on top on the winter finale tonight on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Almost Human, Bitten, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, Buy This Restaurant, Intelligence, & Mystery Diners.
