If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/13/14

Wow… Yesterday, it was announced that The Big Bang Theory has been picked up for another 3 seasons, so there’s a lot more of the show to look forward to! I just hope they don’t run out of ideas and maybe start moving along the Sheldon/Amy relationship a little faster! Fan or not, the first of many more new episodes airs tonight, and in addition, we’ve got some suggestions on what other shows you should check out.

kingofthenerds2smallTonight, a new nerd will sit atop the Throne of Games as the second season of King of the Nerds comes to a close. Last week, it was every nerd for him/herself. It was “gaming” week, and in the first challenge, the nerds had to race around a track in Tron-inspired go-carts. Zack somehow didn’t even have a driver’s license and failed miserably—and it was Kayla who took the win and was safe from elimination. In the Nerd Off, it was Zack versus Jack in a game of Angry Nerds, which had them shooting projectiles, trying to knock down one another’s structures. Jack just barely eked out a win, finally sending the evil Zack home.

While I thought Zack was irritating and annoying, at least he made a good villain. The person I really wanted to see go home last week was Kayla—I actually find her more annoying than Zack! Tonight, the final four becomes the final two, who will go head-to-head for the title. After last year’s disappointment with Celeste winning, it’s time for a guy to take over the throne, and I would be happy if any one of Xander, Jack, or Brian is crowned tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “One Nerd To Rule Them All,” the banished Nerds return as the final two battle for supremacy in a gauntlet of nerdy games. In the end, a new King of the Nerds will be crowned.

Find out who takes home the title and sits on the Throne of Games tonight on TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, The Crazy Ones, Elementary, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Grey’s Anatomy, Community, Parks and Recreation, Hollywood Game Night, Parenthood, Hell’s Kitchen, Chopped Canada, Suits, Sirens, Review, Portlandia, and The Red Road.

hellskitchen2012bsmallEven though Hell’s Kitchen is going into its 12th season, it is still at the top of my must-see TV list. I love Gordon Ramsay, but even more, I love watching the drama between all the chefs and how scared they get of Chef Ramsay. This new season is bound to bring us some intense personalities and some even crazier challenges, because they always step it up year to year. One of my favorite challenges is the one where they have to catch livestock and put them into cages. It’s always hilarious watching some of these city girls get their hands dirty.

On tonight’s episode, “20 Chefs Compete,” the newest batch of 20 aspiring restaurateurs attempt to impress Gordon Ramsay and his fiery personality as they head to the kitchen. In the first challenge of the season, Chef Ramsay splits the chefs into two teams: men (blue) vs. women (red) and asks the them to present their signature dish. The winning team gets treated to an exclusive dinner with Chef Ramsay, while the losing team is left behind to scrub down the kitchen. During opening night dinner service, both teams make major mistakes and some tempers reach their boiling point.

To see how this batch of chefs measure up, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Scandal, American Idol, and Vikings.

community313smallIt really is fascinating to see how great Community is again now that Dan Harmon is back. Troy’s goodbye episode was great on so many levels, and last week, the concept of #MeowMeowBeenz was a great way to mine some conflict between Jeff and Shirley. The great thing about these high-concept episodes is that they have something real at their core, and that was missing in the season-we-do-not-speak-of.

On tonight’s episode, “VCR Maintenance and Educational Publishing,” Jeff, Shirley, and Professor Hickey happen upon a hidden cache of textbooks, and this leads to some interesting power shifts as the group struggles with how to monetize their windfall. Meanwhile, Abed and Annie decide to get a new roommate, but when they can’t seem to agree, they decide to plan an old VCR game to determine the winner, but things get a little intense.

Find out how intense on NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Parks & Recreation, American Idol, Suits, The Crazy Ones, and Scandal.
