If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/7/14

It’s been entirely too many days off school in a row for my kid. I think they’d have gone to school today, except it’s been scheduled off since the beginning for parent/teacher conferences. Happy happy joy joy. LOL While I wish that I could go back to sleep, check out what Kyle & I are recommending tonight.

Jenny’s Choice

enlisted27smallI really enjoy FOX’s latest comedy, Enlisted. I think even Kyle’s enjoying it, despite his lack of enthusiasm for the pilot the first time he watched it over the summer. It’s just cute and sweet and funny, and the three guys who play brothers have great chemistry. Last week was great, even though it was another case of being a bit confused because of episodes being aired out of order. It was episode ten, and suddenly, Derrick was dating a woman at the bar. He even seemed okay with the fact that she had a kid, and her ex was deployed overseas. When she couldn’t take the boy to Disney, Derrick planned to, but he screwed up when asking the boy for his biggest wish, promising to make it come true…only to be told that the boy wanted his dad home from war. In the end, Derrick and Randy worked together to make it a homecoming the boy would never forget. The sweetest part was watching the brothers show Randy—who lamented all episode about wishing he’d gotten a reunion like that with their dad—that he did indeed get a great reunion, which was even captured on video, with their dad…he just hadn’t been born yet. The video showed his dad greeting the other two boys and their mom…and then kneeling and kissing her very-large stomach, where she was quite pregnant with Randy. It was fantastic and made me teary-eyed. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Rear D Day,” Pete’s new attitude of embracing his Rear D duties is challenged by the husband of a deployed soldier. When things go too far, Pete must make amends. Meanwhile, Cody enlists Jill’s help with a private matter.

See why Pete must make amends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Raising Hope & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Kyle’s Choice

raisinghope27smallLast week on Raising Hope, Howdy’s Supermarket was chosen to host the International Grocery Games. However, when the professional US team was caught using performance-enhancing drugs, our favorite Natesville grocers had to step in and take their place. It looked like their chances at winning were slim, until the gang discovered that Burt was a natural—a fact he’d been hiding since a traumatic event from his grocery past. Meanwhile, Frank and Shelley discovered that they were one another’s masked internet date.

Raising Hope has been a lot of fun this season. It’s a shame FOX has banished the series to a Friday night death slot. I hope it somehow manages to score a renewal, as they are doing some of their best work yet!

On tonight’s episode, “Anniversary Ball,” a trip to a dude ranch for Burt turns out to be a disappointing experience because of a secret he’s keeping from Virginia, who is convinced he’s getting her an expensive gift for their 25th anniversary. Keith Carradine guest stars.

Find out what secret Burt’s been keeping tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Enlisted, Helix, and Banshee.
