If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/12/14

We went from over 70 degrees to mid-40s in a matter of hours. Crazy. But that means it’ll be a good night to curl up under a blanket and watch TV, and there’s plenty of that on tonight. Check out our recommendations to see what we think you should be watching.

Jenny’s Choice

menatworksmallIt’s been a good season of Men at Work, even though Amy broke up with Neal when he proposed and Milo quit his job. Last week was hysterical. Gibbs was dating a woman who lived in the suburbs and even though Jude—the woman who took Milo’s place at Full Steam—warned him that dating a woman from the suburbs was dangerous, he went out to her place anyway, thinking he was finally going to get lucky. Instead, it turned out that she’d invited a lot of people over for a party…and they were pretty darn creepy. He felt like they were going to somehow turn him into a suburb zombie and keep him there forever. He ended up calling Jude to come pick him up.

On tonight’s first episode, “Jude Awakening,” Tyler attempts to ask Jude out on a date, but her past gets in the way. Worried that Gibbs is bottling up his emotions, Milo tries to get him to cry. The big source of Neal’s sexual anxiety is revealed. Then on the season finale, “Odd Milo Out,” Tyler and Jude try to keep their new relationship a secret. Milo, already feeling left out since quitting Full Steam, has his traditional movie night taken away from him. Gibbs is hurt when Neal finds a new apartment. PJ tells a paranoid Myron to expect big changes in the office.

See how the season ends tonight on TBS at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Psych, Mixology, CSI, Wahlburgers, & Chicago PD.

chicagopd312smallThere are so many crime dramas on television today that it’s easy to let a good one, like Chicago PD, slip through the cracks, but I’m really glad I didn’t. This show is always pushing the limits with gritty story lines that really tackle today’s issues, making it must-see TV for me weekly. Last week was a rollercoaster ride as we watched Voight try to avoid a case that may end up with his son being charged with being an accomplice in a murder. Antonio was approached by Gradishar from Internal Affairs and was offered the job to be the head of the Intelligence if he agrees to bring Voight down. He took over the case and called Voight out on everything that’s been done. Meanwhile, Lindsay felt it was in the best interest to bring Justin in so Antonio can question him and did so behind Voight’s back. In the end, Antonio didn’t want Justin; he wanted the bigger fish behind the murder, and he then told Gradishar that he would not be her rat because she was responsible for his former partner’s dismissal years ago. What a crazy episode! I loved it, and I can’t wait for more.

On tonight’s episode, “Different Mistakes,” Voight is assigned a new Internal Affairs handler, Stillwell (guest star Ian Bohen), who proves to be suspicious of Voight’s actions. During an investigation involving a gambling ring, Voight is forced to work with his former partner from the Gang Unit, Shi (guest star Mark Dacascos). At the same time, Halsted remains fixated on Lonnie Rodiger (guest star Matthew Sherbach) and enlists Jin’s help to gather more information. Meanwhile, Ruzek’s inflated ego leads Olinsky to take him down a peg and offer a great opportunity to Atwater. Ian Bohen & Mark Dacascos (the Chairman on Iron Chef America & Wo-Fat from Hawaii Five-0!) guest star.

To see if Voight can handle the blast from the past, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, Suburgatory, Mixology, CSI, and Wahlburgers.

Kyle’s Choice

legit312smallThe FX comedy series, Legit, moved to FXX this year for its second season, but it hasn’t missed a beat. Last week, Jim was doing a comedy routine at Billy’s care center and literally killed it—during his performance, one of Billy’s friends actually dropped dead. This caused Jim and Steve to contemplate their own friend’s mortality, and they decided to do something nice for Billy by helping him hook up at the funeral.

In its second season, this series continues to be hilarious, but the outrageous humor is always grounded with a lot of heart. What I love about this show is that it doesn’t make fun of people with disabilities, but rather finds the humor in their situation. It was great to see John Ratzenberger back as Steve and Billy’s father last week—he always brings some fun, inappropriate humor!

On tonight’s episode, “Racist,” Jim’s tolerance is tested. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang get into trouble at a bar.

Find out what kind of trouble they get into tonight on FXX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Mixology, Revolution, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Americans, Flipping Out, Psych, and Workaholics.

JJ’s Choice

modernfamily312smallLast week wasn’t the most laugh-out-loud episode of Modern Family, although they were mining Lily for some laughs, as they have all season. Her trying to frame Joe was hilarious, and it was a great way to pay forward what Luke and Manny did to her in the first few seasons.

On tonight’s episode, “Other People’s Children,” Jay takes Luke into the garage to show him the way around tools and impact some manly wisdom, Gloria goes with Claire and Lily to shop for Lily’s flower girl drew, and Mitch, Cam, Alex, and Manny go for a cultured day at the museum.

Find out how everybody handles the children on ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching American Idol, Melissa & Joey, Suburgatory, and The Real World.
