If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/27/14

Well, it’s been a big weekend in the Rarden household… Our 16yo son has his learner’s permit and is now driving. It’s such a scary thought. Luckily, the hubs is teaching him, so I don’t have to be in the car. LOL While I sit home chewing on my fingernails, check out our recommendations for what to watch.

americandreambuilderssmallI’m really digging American Dream Builders. I love design shows, and I love competition shows, so combining the two is a recipe for greatness for me. Last week was unfortunate because the judges would’ve chosen the opposite team that the neighborhood council did, but because the rules state that they must choose someone to go home from the losing team that the neighborhood council didn’t choose, they had an extra tough decision to make. They did make the right decision in sending Erinn home. They loved her kitchen, but one of their least-favorite rooms out of both houses was the son’s bedroom that Erinn did. It was much too old, boring, & kind of hotel-y for a young boy.

We’re down to the final six designers. While Elaine has been…better the last couple of weeks, she’s still much too cocky and much too…witchy for me. Other than that, it’s kind of hit or miss for me. Some weeks, I like one contestant. Some weeks, I like another and hate the one I liked the week before. So it’ll be interesting to see how it continues to play out.

On tonight’s episode, “Colonial Duplex,” for the first time in the competition, the designers must renovate a single project, a colonial-style duplex. Six designers remain, and the focus for this week’s challenge is to create a “Lowe’s fantasy bathroom.” Personalities clash as the teams are reshuffled. Jay Riordan serves as site manager of Team Blue, but he struggles to lead with team member Dann Foley trying to take control. On Team Red, Lukas Machnik and Elaine Griffin find difficulty in site manager Darren Moore’s casual work style. Ultimately, one designer is sent home.

Find out who goes home tonight on NBC at 7/6c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Signed, Sealed, Delivered, America’s Best Cook, Believe, Catch a Contractor, Cutthroat Kitchen, The Mentalist, & Salem.

tarsmallThe Amazing Race is down to the final five teams after The Globetrotters went home last week. Brenchel started to get really competitive last week when they decided to U-Turn Dave & Connor, which led to them U-Turning Afghanimals, but Dave & Connor have said they are coming after Brenchel now. Using the U-turn turned out to be in Brenchel’s favor because they got to finish in first place, with my favorite team The Cowboys in second. I’m excited to see what comes next, especially how the rivalry goes between all the teams that are left.

On tonight’s episode, “Accidental Alliance,” with the final finish line getting closer, tension between two teams rises. Meanwhile, three teams make a final three alliance in hopes of making it to the final leg.

To see which teams form an alliance, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Game of Throne, Once Upon a Time, Resurrection, Believe, Crisis, and Cutthroat Kitchen.

thegoodwife427smallLast week on The Good Wife, in order to thwart Diane’s plans to merge with Florrick/Agos, David Lee called in Louis Canning to discuss a merger of his own. Meanwhile, Alicia discovered that the State’s Attorney was planning to frame Finn for what happened in the Jeffrey Grant case and reached out to help him; and NSA employee Jeff came to Cary and Clarke looking for help after he took home a flash drive containing confidential information. While working on Jeff’s case, the Florricks finally learned that the NSA has been listening in on them—a fact that Peter used to set up Jeff’s boss to get fired and end the wiretapping once and for all.

Last week was such a great episode, with lots of great twists and turns and sneaky moves. That episode proved that even though one of the original stars is gone, the show can continue to produce amazingly entertaining episodes. I absolutely loved the way the show used orchestral music in its soundtrack to compliment and heighten the drama that was happening on screen. I also really enjoyed having Michael J Fox back on the show—I’m looking forward to seeing how this possible merger plays out. With The Michael J. Fox Show pretty much dead, this would be a great time to snatch him up as a regular for next season! This is such a great show, and more people should be watching.

On tonight’s episode, “Tying the Knot,” Alicia becomes a reluctant witness when a body is discovered in Colin Sweeney’s home while she is there. Meanwhile, an unfortunate picture of Zach threatens to become a public relations nightmare for Peter.

See what picture of Zach becomes public tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, The Mentalist, Once Upon a Time, Resurrection, Believe, Crisis, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, Family Guy, Drop Dead Diva, Devious Maids, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Veep, and Nurse Jackie.
