If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/10/14

What a difference a week makes. Last week, my kiddo was off from school on Monday because of snow. Yesterday? Just over 60 degrees outside. Gotta love Kansas… On a good note, there’s some really great TV on tonight, so at least that’s consistent! Check out our recommendations. 🙂

believe310smallTonight, JJ Abrams brings another new show to TV that could very well become one of my all-time favorites. Believe is about a ten-year-old little girl named Bo who, since the age of two, has had gifts such as levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, and even the ability to predict the future. She was raised by a small group known as the “True Believers,” kept safe from harm and other people who would forcibly use her gifts for personal gain. But as she’s grown, her powers have gotten stronger, and her life and future are in jeopardy, so the “Believers” turn to the one person they…believe can keep her safe and be her full-time guardian: Tate. The problem is, Tate is on death row after being wrongfully imprisoned, so they must break him out. The show is their journey.

When I saw this pilot, I fell in love with it, more so than possibly any other pilot last summer. The cast is great, the stories are great, the action is great… I have been waiting on pins and needles to be able to share it with all of you and with my family, who didn’t watch the pilot with me last summer.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a young girl who was born with extraordinary powers gains an unlikely protector out of a death row escapee who was wrongfully imprisoned, as the two flee from malevolent forces that want to use the girl’s abilities to take control of the world.

See if you become a “Believer” like me tonight on NBC at 10/9c.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

starcrossed310smallI was a little skeptical about Star-Crossed when I first heard about it, but I admit to being sucked into it quickly. There have been so many shows that have played on the Romeo and Juliet story before, but this one takes only a bit of that idea and then twists it into something fabulous. The cast has been solid so far, and I’m looking forward to watching where they go with Roman and Emery and how quickly they do. Last episode, we saw Roman have to be nice to Teri in order to get some herbs he needed, which he hated because he tries to avoid her as much as possible. I couldn’t believe that Drake pledged himself to the Trags, which just puts him into a very bad category in my opinion, because those Trags are just plain awful most of the time. Actually, speaking of Trags, Beaumont was killed by Teri, and while Beaumont was a horrible guy, I’m kind of going to miss having him and his fighting scenes around. Overall, if you haven’t given this show a chance, you really should. It’s more than just another teen romantic drama.

On tonight’s episode, “And Left No Friendly Drop,” Roman investigates a mysterious cellphone left by his late father and secretly asks Julia for help, drawing Emery’s curiosity.

To see what secrets Roman uncovers, tune in to The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Following, The Voice, Intelligence, Bitten, Bates Motel, Those Who Kill, Mike & Molly, Bones, Teen Wolf, and Believe.

Kyle’s Choice

beinghuman310smallOn last week’s episode of Being Human, Sally was in the past and took over her own body to avoid getting killed by her fiance. She then relived the moments of the past few years, starting with getting the gang together. She told Josh and Aidan how she was from the future and that they were all friends, and the three moved in together. However, this time around, things were a little different. Josh accidentally scratched Sally, making her the werewolf this time around, and Sally and Aidan started a romantic relationship. However, things with Josh and Nora didn’t work out, and the breakup caused Josh and Aidan to grow further apart, eventually into an all-out blood feud. When Sally tried to stop the battle between the werewolves and vampires, she wound up dead (again), bleeding out on the street.

So what happens now? It seems like Sally made everyone’s lives worse in her attempts to go back in time and save her brother. Is there any way for her to undo this alternate timeline? If not, is there any way she can repair the relationship between Josh and Aidan and between Josh and Nora? I can’t believe there are only 5 episodes left of the series!

On tonight’s episode, “Too Far, Fast-Forward!” Sally tries to right her wrongs and free herself from the past she’s stuck in, but the only way she can figure on doing that is by magically transporting herself to the present and seeking the aid of an old foe.

Find out if Sally can fix things tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, Intelligence, Believe, Bones, The Following, Star-Crossed, Switched at Birth, Archer, Worst Cooks in America, Bates Motel, Those Who Kill, and Teen Wolf.

JJ’s Choice

himym310smallThe final season of How I Met Your Mother continues, and I’m hoping that tonight will be a great episode. The latter seasons of this show have been up-and-down for me, and the direction the show appears to be going (a really dark series finale) would be such a shame! But the wedding is almost upon us, and it appears like tonight will deal with Lily leaving the inn, which will be important for the wedding.

On tonight’s episode, “Daisy,” Marshall enlists Ted and Barney to find Lily.

See if they find her on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Mike & Molly and RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Jenny’s Choice #2

bones310smallI’m so excited because not only is Bones back, but it’s back on Monday nights, where it belongs. On the last new episode, way back on January 31, Hodgins found out he had a brother—and then learned that the brother has schizophrenia. It was a sad story line, although the end, after Jack showed his brother the picture of himself with their parents and the two brothers talked about the book their father read to them both, was pretty sweet. I really want Hodgins to get his money back, but from what Hart Hanson & Stephen Nathan have said, that won’t happen. He WILL get money elsewhere, apparently, so I guess that’s good. But still…

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and while there’s no update yet on Wendall, it was still a really good episode. Daisy is a bit of a mess, which is fun to see (she’s usually so overconfident…), and we get to see Booth’s old buddy, CIA Agent Danny Beck (cutie Freddie Prinze Jr.). So it’s well worth the watch tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “The Source in the Sludge,” when a CIA informant is found murdered, Booth and CIA Agent Danny Beck (guest star Freddie Prinze Jr.) must work together to track down an Afghani terrorist. Meanwhile, Brennan wants to work more closely with Booth in the field, and the duo must confront the implications of what that means to their family.

To see if they can catch the killer, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, Mike & Molly, Worst Cooks in America, Intelligence, & Mystery Diners.
