If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/31/14

I spent the last week visiting with my dad, and it was an incredible visit. I have missed him so much. Tonight, I’m catching up on TV now that I’ve got my living room back to myself, and what a night to catch up on. Check out what we’re recommending.

thevoice2013smallThe Voice has been my favorite singing competition show since the moment it premiered, and it continues to get better in my eyes. This new round that they’ve added, which starts tonight with the fabulous Chris Martin from Coldplay coming on to mentor all the teams, is one of the most exciting moments for me. First, I love Coldplay, and second, I like any round that adds pressure for the artists to step it up to the next level. I am cheering for Team Adam and Team Usher as a whole, but I have a soft spot for Josh from Team Adam because he is just astounding with the level of his talent. The only part of the show I don’t like is Shakira. Although I was never a big fan of Christina, I’d still rather have her on the show instead of Shakira.

On tonight’s episode, “The Battles, Round 2,” battle rounds continue as the coaches and top recording artists offer advice to the contestants.

To see how the artists handle working with the incredible Chris Martin, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching How I Met Your Mother, Intelligence, The Blacklist, Star-Crossed, Bones, Mom, The Following, and Friends with Better Lives.

bones331smallMy pick tonight is Bones (although I really want to recommend the series premiere of Friends with Better Lives, too! 😉 ). Last week, we got a plant feeding off the body of a children’s performer and actually growing right before our eyes. N-A-S-T-Y but so cool. They solved the case, and it was actually kind of sad because the guy’s…well, stalker is the only way to put it…she accidentally killed him. She wouldn’t have been charged with murder, but stalking, maybe, and definitely disposing of a body. She was cray-cray, though. Seriously. Then on the personal side of things, Booth & Brennan were trying to plan Christine’s birthday party, and Brennan admitted she’d never had a birthday party, even when she was a kid. She didn’t think it was a big deal, but Booth did. In the end, Max helped her remember that she did have some fun times as a kid, playing tag and winning against him all the time. At Christine’s party, Booth ended up as the one-man band, and then the three of them ran around playing tag at Christine’s request. Speaking of Christine… Dang, they decided to age her and Michael Vincent suddenly, didn’t they? Last we saw, she was a toddler. Now she’s in preschool!

On tonight’s episode, “The Turn in the Urn,” when Todd (guest star John Sloan), a wealthy artifact collector, walks into his own funeral, the Jeffersonian team must find out to whom the cremated remains at the funeral belong. The investigation gets complicated when the team determines that there are three sets of remains in the urn. Meanwhile, Finn (guest star Luke Kleintank) enjoys his new-found wealth from his hot sauce venture with Hodgins, but is heartbroken when Michelle (guest star Tiffany Hines) has devastating news for him.

See what news Michelle brings Finn tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, Worst Cooks in America, Friends with Better Lives, Intelligence, & Mystery Diners.

Kyle’s Choice

himym331smallTonight, after nine seasons, How I Met Your Mother finally comes to an end. Last week, Robin got cold feet 30 minutes before the wedding, worrying that her missing locket was a sign. Ted gave Barney the locket to give to Robin, but this only made things worse, as she realized all of Barney’s big gestures were surrounded by lies. But when Barney admitted the truth about the locket, professing his love to Robin and promising in his vows to always be truthful (starting with the ring bear), that was all Robin needed, and the wedding went through.

So now we are down to the final hour of the series, and we will finally learn how Ted and the mother met! How will Ted’s kids react to this long-winded story? Are they even still awake?! And why is Ted telling this story to his children? Did something happen to the mother in the future? Did she pass away or have some terminal illness? It seemed like that is what they hinted at a few episodes ago. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the series finally wraps things up after nine years!

On tonight’s episode, “Last Forever Parts One and Two,” Ted tells his children the conclusion to the tale of how he and their mother finally became a couple.

Find out how it all ends tonight on the one-hour series finale on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Friends with Better Lives, Mom, Intelligence, The Blacklist, Bones, The Following, Archer, Worst Cooks in America, Bates Motel, and Being Human.
