If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/6/14

When will this snow finally go away?! I blame Punxsutawney Phil for the foot of the white stuff that got dumped on us here in Massachusetts yesterday. With the Winter Olympics starting up, the TV selections are going to be a bit slimmer for the next few weeks, but I’m actually looking forward to getting a chance to clear out the TiVo. Check out our recommendations.

tbbt26smallLast week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory was all about the guys trying to get Comic-Con tickets. When they got shut out during the online badge sale, Sheldon decided to start his own convention, while the rest of the guys decided to find a scalper. In his search for convention guests, Sheldon made friends with James Earl Jones—though he soon regretted his new friendship, as James never stopped talking and wanted to perform childish pranks on his Star Wars co-star, Carrie Fisher. Meanwhile, the girls decided to go on a “grown-ups” night out, but their “high tea” ended up being a mother/daughter event for little girls.

Who knew James Earl Jones was so hilarious—well, I guess I should have known based on those great Sprint ads he does with Malcolm McDowell. The actor seemed up for anything on this episode, and he delivered! On the other hand, the stuff about the Comic-Con tickets felt way too real and made me even more stressed out about getting my SDCC badge this Saturday!

On tonight’s episode, “The Locomotive Manipulation,” Amy has amour on her mind when she talks Sheldon into a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway to Napa Valley wine country. Back at home, Leonard and Penny make an emergency visit to the vet with Raj’s dog.

See if Amy’s able to get Sheldon to romance her even a little tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Rake, and King of the Nerds.

Jenny’s Choice #1

thetastesmallI really enjoy ABC’s The Taste. I love Anthony’s rivalry with Ludo, and I thought I’d enjoy Marcus on here, but he’s been a bit…bland, I think is the best word for it. Nigella always picks a bit of a “hot mess,” although her team this season was even worse than last. Last week was fantastic, because Jacquelyn actually walked away in the middle of the judging for the team challenge—made especially funny, as the guest judge picked her dish as the 2nd place dish! Because she quit, Sarah & Shehu from Marcus’s team, which got last place, were both safe. In the end, Dana, from Team Anthony, went home.

I’m looking forward to tonight’s ep because it focuses on sweets, which we’ve learned isn’t Anthony’s favorite thing… It’ll be interesting to see how the judges handle it.

On tonight’s episode, “The Sweetest Thing,” who doesn’t love dessert? Bring your sweet tooth this week as the eight remaining competitors are given the challenge to create mouthwatering desserts highlighting ingredients like fruit and sweet & savory combinations. Chef Christina Tosi guest judges a delicious battle in which two competitors will be sent home, and the remaining six will head to the semi-finals.

Find out which two chefs go home tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, 2014 Winter Olympic Games, The Millers, Chopped Canada, Two and a Half Men, King of the Nerds, Elementary, & Panic Button.

Megan’s Choice

thecrazyones26smallWhile I will definitely be watching the Winter Olympics tonight—and of course cheering for Canada all the way—I think we should all also be watching The Crazy Ones. Why? Well, everyone needs some quirky laughter in their lives, of course! Last week, we watched as Zach and Andrew had to work together to help Simon regain his love of the job when he got beat in a creativity contest. Sydney struggled with the prospect of becoming a crazy cat lady when she fell in love with the adorable Mr. Princess. It was a very fun and random episode, which is exactly why I love this show. You really don’t have to have seen all of the season to just sit down and watch this comedy, which makes it far more accessible to all of you…so start watching!

On tonight’s episode, “Dead and Improved,” Simon faces a dilemma when he is asked to eulogize a jingle writer who was widely disliked.

To see what kind of happy spin Simon can put on this guy’s eulogy, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, The Taste, 2014 Winter Olympic Games, Reign, Rake, American Idol, Elementary, and Chopped Canada.
