If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/21/14

Did everyone have a good weekend? I did, although you should be very afraid… My son is finally learning to drive. Eek! While I cower in the corner and cry my eyes out, check out our recommendations for TV tonight.

Jenny’s Choice #1

castle421smallIt’s been a month since the last new Castle. Crazy! On that episode, the victim was an undercover informant for the U.S. Attorney’s office—for which Captain Gates’s sister, Elizabeth Weston, worked. He was killed by Weston’s partner, who was a dirty attorney. Things between Cpt. Gates & her sister were tense, although by the end, it seemed like they were getting back to having a good relationship, so that was nice. Meanwhile, Castle & Beckett are still trying to plan their wedding. So it’ll be interesting to see how the show wraps that up through the last four episodes of the season.

I’ve seen tonight’s 70s-themed ep, and it’s a lot of fun. There’s something for everyone: great case, zany fun, some cute relationship stuff, Castle’s family… I enjoyed it!

On tonight’s episode, “That ’70s Show,” when construction workers find the body of an infamous New York mobster who disappeared in the seventies, Beckett and Castle try to solve this three decade-old Mafia hit. Unfortunately, their only witness is a man who thinks it’s still the 1970’s, so to uncover what he knows, they must play into his delusion, and party like it’s the last days of disco. Jon Polito, Richard Portnow, Ray Abruzzo, Gina Hecht, & Dawn Lewis guest star.

See how the team handles a previous decade tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

thevoice2013smallThe Voice is finally going live this week, which means the best of the best are going to be on our televisions performing to get our votes to stay in the competition. I am so torn between so many of the teams because I like artists from each team. Kristen, on Team Shakira, has an incredibly great country voice, and I enjoy her personality. As far as Team Adam goes, while I adore Adam to the point of insanity, I’m not overly thrilled by his team this year. Team Usher has the adorable Josh, who has a voice that doesn’t at all suit how he looks, which is part of why I love this show. Finally, we have Team Blake and the super cute and loveable Jake, who in my opinion is the leader for the people’s vote because of his likability. At the end of the night, it really doesn’t matter which team wins, as long as they continue to bring us the great level of singing they have already.

On tonight’s episode, “The Live Show Premiere,” top twelve artists perform live in front of coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira, and Usher, for America’s vote.

To see which artists give it their all and which leave something to be desired, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, The Following, The Tomorrow People, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, The Blacklist, and Rewrapped.

rewrappedsmallTonight, Food Network kicks off a new cooking competition series that sounds like a lot of fun. Each episode of Rewrapped finds three contestants first trying to recreate re-create some of America’s most iconic snacks. Then, in the second round, they must reinvent these simple sweet and savory treats, elevating them into gourmet eats. The series is hosted by Joey Fatone, and the judging panel includes Unwrapped host Marc Summers, guest pastry chefs, and representatives from the food companies whose projects are featured in the episodes.

I loved watching how all these treats got made on Unwrapped, and now I’m really looking forward to seeing how well these contestants can deconstruct, reconstruct, and re-imagine these classic snacks on their own.

On tonight’s first episode, “All That Glitters is Goldfish,” three contestants tasked with recreating Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers, which they later use to make an innovative dish. And in tonight’s second episode, “Pie for One, Pie for All,” the contestants are given the task of recreating a Tastykake Glazed Cherry Pie; and one chef gets innovative by using molecular gastronomy.

Check out the new competition tonight on Food Network at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording 2 Broke Girls, Friends with Better Lives, Castle, The Blacklist, Bones, The Following, Archer, Bates Motel, Metal Hurlant Chronicles, and Warehouse 13.

Jenny’s Choice #2

bones421smallLast week on Bones, the case was pretty good… A woman was found dead, but between Cam and Hodgins, they put time of death at a mix of three different times—days apart. It turned out the woman was killed and put on ice…as in cryogenically frozen. Her killer was the man who, along with his wife, owned and ran the cryogenic facility that her daughter was frozen in. His wife then figured it out and dumped her in the swamp when she had to make room for a new family that had died and wanted to be frozen together. But the best parts of the episode were the conversation between Booth & Bones—their conversation was so sweet when he was telling her about what he thinks the reason is that the government wants him over in Germany—and Cam meeting Aristoo’s parents. Their first meeting didn’t go well, but when they came to the apartment, it was so great that I teared up. I love Cam & Aristoo together.

Tonight, the Ghost Killer story line is back, so I’m interested to see how Bones handles it, since last time, she kinda went…well, a little crazy. Also, I’m anxious to learn more about Booth’s possible promotion/job switch…

On tonight’s episode, “The Nail in the Coffin,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of Stephanie McNamara, the daughter of a wealthy family whose remains were found in a national park. When the team digs deeper into the circumstances surrounding her death, clues from the case lead them to believe she may be the Ghost Killer’s latest victim, with a surprising connection to a previous victim. Meanwhile, the FBI Deputy Director takes a special interest in the team’s high-profile case and Booth’s career may be in for some changes.

Find out the connection to a previous GK victim and what changes Booth might be in store for tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, Rewrapped, Friends with Better Lives, Kitchen Casino, Mike & Molly, Warehouse 13, & Mystery Diners.
