If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/28/14

I can’t believe we’re almost into May already. Where did April go? It’s been a busy month, but I am looking forward to the warmer temperatures, longer days, and lots of barbeques. While I dream of the summer days to come, let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

thevoice2013smallI have been loving this season of The Voice so far because the talent has just been amazing and very entertaining. The coaches on this show really are invested in their teams and are as emotional as their singers when they get eliminated. Last week, both Team Usher and Team Shakira lost a member when Dani and T.J. were sent home, even after they gave valiant final performances. I wasn’t too upset with these eliminations because I felt that out of the performers left, they just didn’t deliver at the same level as the others.

On tonight’s episode, “Live Top 10,” the top ten take the stage and lay it all out on the stage yet again to prove that they are worthy of being here.

To see if your favorite performs well enough to earn the votes, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

castle428smallLast week’s Castle was fun and definitely a little wacky. The team went back to the 70s, complete with clothes, hair, typewriters instead of computers, and language, all with the help of Martha, when they had a witness from a thirty-year-old murder case thought it was still the 1970s. In the end, he really did know it was thirty years later, but to keep himself sane, he didn’t want to remember that his lover had been murdered. Speaking of… That was a shock, finding out the victim and the witness were lovers. It’s hard enough to come out in some circles even now, so I can’t imagine how hard it would’ve been to be gay back then.

We’re coming up on the end of the season. Will Beckett & Castle tie the knot? Please say yes. Please say yes. It’s something they—and the fans—deserve. I guess we’ll see, though! The show’s definitely shocked & angered me before on finales, so…

On tonight’s episode, “Law & Boarder,” when an up-and-coming professional skateboarder is gunned down by a mysterious motorcyclist, Castle and Beckett are thrust into the world of extreme sports, where the death defying stunts aren’t the only thing that’s dangerous. Yani Gellman (Pretty Little Liars) guest stars.

See how Beckett & team solve the case tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.

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

Kyle’s Choice

thefollowing428smallI managed to get caught up on five episodes of The Following this weekend so that I could watch tonight’s season finale. Last time, Joe had taken a church hostage and forced Kingston and his son to choose which one would kill the other, but the pastor took his own life in order to prevent his son from having to kill him. Afterward, Joe discovered that Mike and Ryan were inside the church. He managed to take Mike at gunpoint, threatening to kill him if Ryan didn’t show himself. Meanwhile, Claire stupidly went off on her own and was attacked by Emma, whom she managed to kill in the altercation that followed. However, just when she thought she was free, Claire found herself surrounded by the twins.

As the last episode faded to black, we heard a gunshot in the church—did Joe shoot and/or kill Mike? Or did Ryan take the shot or reveal himself in time to save Mike? Now that Mark and Luke have Claire, what will they do with her? Will they use her as bait to get to Joe? Will Joe sacrifice himself to save Claire? Who else will die before the season is over, and will we finally see the end of Joe and get a new baddie for season 3?

On tonight’s episode, “Forgive,” the second season ends with Ryan and Joe being forced to work together, despite their negative feelings toward each other, in order to save the woman they both love.

Find out how the season ends tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

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

Megan’s Choice #2

kitchencasinosmallFood Network has been bringing some fantastic and exciting new shows our way regularly, and Kitchen Casino is definitely one of those. I really enjoy the crazy way they spin the work stations in the middle of cooking and the panic that it causes. What could be worse for a chef than having to work with a dish that someone else has started using their own style and flavor profile? In my world, that sounds terrifying!

On tonight’s episode, “House of Cards,” four chefs test their luck when the slot machine yields an unlikely combination of waffles and tailgating. All bets are off in the roulette round, when one chef suspects foul play with a short rib. In the poker round, it’s hard to tell which chef is bluffing when the house deals an unusual ingredient—nopales cactus.

To see who ends up beating the house, tune in to Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching 2 Broke Girls, The Following, The Blacklist, and Star-Crossed.
