If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/19/14

Happy Hump Day! We’re halfway through the week, which means it’s all downhill from here—although, not in terms of quality, because there’s still some great stuff on. Check out our recommendations. 🙂

csi319smallI’ve really enjoyed CSI this season. It’s a great mix of the cast and characters. Last week was a pretty fun episode, with guest star Gene Simmons as himself. Rock n roll wannabes could pay to become a rocker for a while, even playing with Gene Simmons. Then a groupie was murdered and a prostitute was missing. One of the latest wannabes was the suspect, but then his body turned up, too. It turned out that one of the other wannabes was jealous of the guy’s success.

On tonight’s episode, “Uninvited,” the CSIs are called to investigate when an entire family is reported to have been missing for a month.

See why the family went missing tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

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

savemybakerysmallWhen I first heard about the new Food Network show, Save My Bakery, I wasn’t too thrilled, seeing as there are so many other shows on just like it, but when I found out that Kerry Vincent was hosting it, I was in. Kerry is a baking goddess, and her recipes have been a staple in my kitchen for a while now—seriously, her whipped buttercream is so good, it’s orgasmic. In this show, Kerry will be answering the call of desolate bakery owners who are hitting rock bottom. She gives each place a makeover from the inside out, with her usual take-charge, strict approach, transforming the families who own these businesses.

On tonight’s series premiere, “Viking Pastries,” Viking Pastries of Ardmore, Pa., was the most successful game in town, but that all changed when the owners were struck by a family tragedy. Since then, the bakery has lost its heart and soul and the family has been relying on aging clientele and old school recipes to keep in business. When it’s on the brink of closing, Kerry Vincent swoops in to give Viking Pastries’ products a facelift that will appeal to the local college community, glittery sprinkles and all.

To see how Kerry helps restore the magic to this bakery, tune in to Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, CSI, Chicago PD, The 100, Law & Order: SVU, Wahlburgers, and American Idol.

the100smallTonight, The CW kicks off another new series, The 100. A nuclear war has caused the Earth to be decimated, leaving only 400 survivors who had been living on various international space stations at the time. It is now almost 100 years later, and these 12 space station have been linked together to form the Ark, but now with almost 4000 inhabitants, resources are running low. So those in charge decide to send 100 juvenile prisoners to Earth to see if the planet is once again habitable. They must learn to set aside their own differences as they try to adapt to life on this now primitive planet and survive the unknown dangers that await them. The series stars Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco (Person of Interest), Thomas McDonell (Suburgatory), Eli Goree (Emily Owens, M.D.), Marie Avgeropoulos (50/50), Bob Morley, Kelly Hu (Arrow) as Cece, Christopher Larkin (Squad 85), Devon Bostick (Aim High), Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy), and Henry Ian Cusick (Lost, Scandal).

This is one of the few CW pilots I watched last summer that I really enjoyed. Tonight’s episode sets up an interesting premise, with lots of action, twists, and drama. I’m looking forward to checking out some more episodes. If you haven’t seen the ads for tonight’s episode yet, avoid them, because they spoil one of the shocking moments of the premiere.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” ninety-seven years after the planet Earth was destroyed, generations of survivors are faced with dwindling resources.

See if this new supernatural show is for you tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, Revolution, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Americans, Legit, Flipping Out, Save My Bakery, Psych, and Workaholics.
