If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/10/14

It’s been a great start to the Olympics for both Canada and the United States, with an especially heart-warming moment for Canada when the Dufour-Lapointe Sisters won Gold and Silver in the Women’s Moguls. I know that there are people who aren’t as excited about the Olympics as I am, but it was a great moment, and Hannah Kearney of the USA finished out the medal winners, taking bronze, so we all win. Now, there are still great shows on for those who aren’t glued to their televisions watching the Olympics, so let’s take a look at what else you should be watching.

rachaelvsguysmallIt’s been an interesting season on Rachel vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, and tonight is the finale. I’ve been impressed by most of the stars, and I was quite pleased that Vanilla Ice went home last week. He really annoyed me to the extreme. Florence is definitely one of my favorites to win, and if not her, I’d like to see Penn win it, because both of them have produced some fabulous dishes. On last week’s episode, Flo’s hot dog looked the yummiest out of all of them and had me thinking of making homemade coleslaw to put on a hotdog to help fulfill my craving.

On tonight’s finale, “Sink or Swim,” the remaining celebrities prepare a meal aboard a cruise ship in order to win $50,000 for their charity.

To see which celebrity wins the money for their charity, tune in to Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Almost Human, The Following, Intelligence, Hart of Dixie, Bitten, Lost Girl, Teen Wolf, and Being Human.

almosthuman210smallLast week on Almost Human, we met Dorian’s creator, Vaughn, (played by the always great John Larroquette), who also created Danica, a deadly fembot. When the team finally caught up with her as she shot up a city coucilman’s fundraiser, Dorian started rescuing hostages while Kennex did what he’d been instructed to do to take her out, but it didn’t faze her, so they began to fight with their fists…which was a little unbalanced, meaning Kennex got thrown around a lot. Then Dorian got in on the action, robot vs. robot, but Dorian took a spike to the chest, and Kennex came to his rescue, finally pulling the pin on a grenade, destroying the fembot. In the end, Vaughn was the one behind it all, bitter about his program being decommissioned, and he and the stuff he stole disappeared over the Wall.

So the big questions are, of course: 1) Was the head what Insyndicate was after in the pilot? 2) Just what is over the Wall?? What, normally, but also, is Vaughn building an evil army of bots & fembots? Eek! And again, we’re seeing an episode aired out of order. Tonight is episode four. So who knows how all the story lines and relationships will play out!

On tonight’s episode, “Perception,” when Det. Kennex and Dorian investigate the simultaneous and sudden deaths of two genetically-enhanced – or “chrome” – children, a fatal dose of the perfect designer drug appears to be the cause. As the investigation unfolds and a recent drowning victim is mysteriously connected, the case takes an unexpected turn. Meanwhile, Kennex endures painful flashes from the past and pays a visit to the recollectionist.

Find out what the unexpected turn is tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bitten, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, Intelligence, & Mystery Diners.

thefollowing210smallLast week on The Following, Judy was having her doubts about Joe after he killed the priest, but in a shocking twist, Mandy stepped in and stabbed her mother to death. It’s amazing the influence that Joe has on others! Back in New York City, Emma was still being kept in the dark about Joe, while our new group of followers turned on Carlos and killed him.

I’m surprised by how much I’ve been enjoying the second season of The Following, especially since I didn’t like the way season one ended and was initially upset that they brought back Joe Carroll instead of finding a new baddie. However, they’ve been keeping it interesting with lots of new twists. Now that Joe seems to have the taste for blood again, it will be interesting to see what happens when he re-joins his followers in New York. Who will be his new favorite in charge: Mandy, Emma, or one of the new gang? And will we see some kind of internal power struggle among these followers?

On tonight’s episode, “Family Affair,” Ryan and Max follow evidence and try to stay ahead of the FBI, despite Weston’s warnings to stay out of the way. Meanwhile, Emma gets closer to Mark and Luke, while Joe and Mandy encounter a follower who needs help.

See why the follower needs help and if Ryan and Max are able to stay ahead of the FBI tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Intelligence, Almost Human, Switched at Birth, Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off, Being Human, and Teen Wolf.
