If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/25/14

It’s been another busy week, and I am glad that the weekend is finally here. Unfortunately, I’ve been having some problems with my DVR, which ended up with all my recordings being deleted. Yes, I’m very upset. I’m going to try to get over the sad loss as I await my new PVR. (Okay, I know it’s a first world problem, but it still sucks to the extreme!) In the meantime, while I await my PVR, let’s see what we’re recommending for tonight.

Megan’s Choice #1

hawaiifiveo425smallHawaii Five-0 is back with an all-new episode, and I am super excited for another dose of my favorite sexy crime fighters. Last episode was very stressful, watching McGarrett and Danny trapped in the rubble from the explosion. I was actually worried that Danny wasn’t going to make it. In the end, the two of them were saved, and Danny had a new outlook on life after McGarrett told him to stop looking for the bad in life. We also learned that the body in the grave was actually Wo Fat’s mother because the wrong person was killed causing a CIA cover-up that they don’t want McGarrett messing around with. I think it’s going to get a whole lot more complicated before this gets cleared up.

On tonight’s episode, “Pe’Epe’s Kainaka (Those Among Us),” the team uncovers a possible terrorist cell of radicalized students who are plotting an attack on U.S. soil.

To see if they can stop the attack before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice

lastmanstanding425smallBefore I give you my pick tonight, can I just say that I HATED the next-to-last ep of Psych, but I loved the series finale. I did okay until Lassie’s video, and from then to the end, I sobbed like a little baby. LOL Anyway…moving on. 🙂 I was totally right about last week’s Last Man Standing. I totally guessed that Mandy would volunteer to give her aunt one of her eggs so April could have a baby. In the end, I liked that April realized that having a baby would complicate her life too much. She was way too immature to become a mother. Mike’s prank on Chuck Larabee at the store was funny, especially since he’s really not serious when he makes the jokes, but I did love how Chuck turned it around on him and made him think.

Tonight is the season finale of this show. TVLine says it could go either way for a renewal, so it could end up being the series finale. I love the show, and although it’s far from my favorite, I’ll be very unhappy if it’s canceled. So I’m crossing my fingers that it is indeed the season, not the series, finale.

On tonight’s episode, “Mutton Busting,” with some guidance from Mike, Ryan convinces an overprotective Kristin to let Boyd participate in the mutton busting competition at the rodeo to help build Boyd’s confidence. [Note from Jenny: Surprises me, actually, since I would assume Ryan was against that because it might “hurt the animals.” LOL] Meanwhile, Eve’s turned off by her boyfriend’s insecurity after he says he doesn’t want her to wear her JROTC uniform to the prom. Having heard about their fight, Eve’s not-so-secret admirer Andrew swoops in.

Find out if Andrew makes any headway with Eve tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing at Unforgettable, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Grimm, Hawaii Five-0, Blue Bloods, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

Kyle’s Choice

relativeinsanitysmallTonight, Lifetime kicks off the all-new reality series Relative Insanity, which looks sort of like Big Brother meets Fear Factor. Each week, two real-life families are locked in rooms with their own family members. For the next 36 hours, each family must learn to work through their differences, overcome their fears, and work together to outlast their neighbors while trying to earn the most money through physical challenges, wild games, and controversial family decisions. The team that earns the most money will win the $25,000 prize. However, throughout the process, the families will be tempted with offers to spend their earnings on items to make their 2-day stay more comfortable. And if one of the family members presses the Escape Button to leave the game early, they could forfeit everything.

I’m sure the series is not going to pick stable, delightful, normal nuclear families. I expect to see drama, fireworks, and lots of fighting amongst these family members. This may be a show I only watch once, but it has my interested piqued, and I’ll be checking out tonight’s premiere.

On tonight’s episode, “Southern Belles vs. City Slickers,” Southern belles go up against city slickers.

See which family comes out the winner tonight on Lifetime at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm, Hannibal, Continuum, and The Writers’ Room.

Megan’s Choice #2

bluebloods425smallOne of the things I love the most about Blue Bloods is that the writers never let us forget that our favorite characters are human and have flaws. Recently, we’ve seen a lot of tension between Danny and Frank because of Frank’s obligation to his position. We also saw some relationship movement between Jamie and Eddie, but then as quick as it happened, they pushed their feelings aside. I don’t think that’s going to last, because those two have some incredible sexual tension, and we all know that tension like that doesn’t go away until it’s quenched. All the character notes aside, I have been very pleased with the direction of the cases on this season because it seems as though they aren’t playing it safe as much and are really allowing the real police work to take place. Truly, this is one of my favorite police dramas, and if you are still haven’t given it a chance, then you are missing out immensely.

On tonight’s episode, “Custody Battle,” Erin investigates an officer accused of killing a suspect while in police custody; Jamie urges Eddie to forgive her father for past mistakes.

To see if Eddie can listen to Jamie, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm, Unforgettable, Kitchen Nightmares, Hart of Dixie, and Say Yes to the Dress.
