If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/7/14

The snow is starting to melt, and I can finally see some of my grass. Then yesterday, I got to take my kids to the park to play for the first time since winter started. All of these things make me very happy because I have been ready for nicer weather since about January. The other amazing thing about spring is that it means May sweeps are just around the corner, which translates into our favorite shows pushing the limits and bringing us incredible entertainment. Let’s see what they’re bringing us tonight.

thevoice2013smallThe Voice is by far one of the best talent competitions on television today, because all the singers really are just oozing with talent. Last week, we watched as the contestants took to the stage for the second round of battles, and if you missed it, then you missed some astounding vocal slayings. I was glued to my television during the battle between Morgan and Stevie because they took the song “Story of my Life” by One Direction and made it rock. The best part was when Adam waited until Morgan went to fist bump him to press his button to steal him. What fantastic timing. This week is going to be intense because the only judge left with a steal is Blake, and I know he’s going to hold on for someone that he really wants, which makes it hard to see when all the talented singers have to leave.

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

To see who has the vocal chops to destroy the competition, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef Canada, Bones, The Following, Star-Crossed, Chopped, Kitchen Casino, and Rick and Morty.

kitchencasinosmallIt’s no secret that I love cooking competition shows. So it shouldn’t come as a total shock that my pick tonight is Food Network’s latest, Kitchen Casino. It’s hosted by Bill Rancic (of Giuliana & Bill and The Apprentice). Each episode include four chefs that come together to compete in a high-stakes game of chance that requires skill, speed, and adaptability. There are three casino-themed cooking challenges (slots, poker, and roulette), and they could win a $30,000 jackpot. Each episode features a panel of rotating judges, including Michael Chernow, Madison Cowan, Danyelle Freedman, Gavin Kaysen, Aliya Leekong, and Kristin Sollenne.

I’ve seen the promos on TV for this show, and it looks just as devious as Cutthroat Kitchen. Imagine being in the middle of cooking, and then everything shifts, and suddenly, you’re having to take over cooking whatever the person to your left was cooking, leaving the person to your right finishing off your dish. Crazy, I tell ya!

On tonight’s episode, “High Steaks,” four chefs are excited to gamble on their skills, but the slot machine proves to be difficult, the roulette wheel is too much to handle for one chef, and the chef with the best strategy for salami, rutabaga, and fruit punch gets a chance to win $30,000 at the winner’s wheel.

Check out this new show and see who wins tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, Chopped, Mystery Diners, & American Dream Builders.

beinghuman47smallTonight is the series finale of Syfy’s Being Human! Last week, it was moving day for the roommates, but they soon discovered that Ramona, the girl Sally had been seeing, was not really a girl at all—she was just the evil of the house personified. She had fed off the death the roommates had brought to the house over the years, and now she wouldn’t let them leave. When the roommates tried to run out of the house, she trapped them each in a separate room and made them believe something horrible was happening, trying to get them to kill themselves. When Kenny arrived at the house, Ramona let him in so he could confront and kill Aidan, but during the fight, it was Kenny who ended up with the stake in his chest. When Ramona put all of the roommates back in the same room, Aidan went after Josh, and Sally was worried this would be the moment she had seen when she had flashed to the future, where Aidan snapped Josh’s neck.

How will it all end tonight? Will all of the roommates survive? Will any of them become human again? While I’m sad to see the series go, I’m really excited to see how it all comes to an end tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “There Goes the Neighborhood Part III,” Sally makes a huge sacrifice to keep her vision of Aidan killing Josh from coming true, and that, in turn, changes Aidan’s life forever as he fights to destroy the house’s evil spirit. Meanwhile, Josh and Nora imagine their future roles as parents.

See how it all ends tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Bones, The Following, Archer, Kitchen Casino, and Bates Motel.
