If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/2/14

Thank goodness it’s Friday. It’s been kind of a long week, and I’m more than ready for the weekend. To help usher in the days off, we’re here to give you our recommendations. 🙂

hawaiifiveo52smallLast week on Hawaii Five-0, a pool boy who got a little too familiar with his clients’ houses and pools was murdered…and it turned out to be because he walked into the middle of a terrorist plot. A group of local American college students were involved with terrorists from Afghanistan, the leader of whom was in hiding overseas, while two who were responsible for a previous attack on US soldiers over there were now living in the US—with jobs, families, etc—yet still involved with the terrorist activities. The funniest and most touching moments were the fishing & jealousy with Grover & Grover/Steve, and then Steve and Danny going to visit the soldier to tell him they’d caught the men who’d blown up his convoy and made him a triple amputee.

Tonight’s episode should be very emotional, and with Catherine’s Michelle Borth not a series regular next season, I have a feeling whatever happens tonight will help her decision to leave Five-0, if not Hawaii and Steve altogether…which makes me very sad because I love her and I love her and Steve together.

On tonight’s episode, “Makani ‘Olu a Holo Malie (Fair Weather and Following Seas),” McGarrett and Catherine travel to Afghanistan to stop the Taliban from harming a young boy whose family saved Catherine’s life years ago.

See if they can find the boy and come out unscathed tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Unforgettable, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Grimm, Blue Bloods, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

bluebloods52smallBlue Bloods is one of the best police dramas on television, not only because of the cases, but because of the characters as well as the family bonds shown. Last episode, we watched as a Erin had to prosecute a police officer accused of murder by excessive force after an altercation in the police station bathroom resulted in the prisoner being choked to death. The problem Erin had with the whole thing, besides the obvious lose of life, was that the police officers all rally around one another when something goes wrong, and she doesn’t believe that they should protect their partners when they’re obviously guilty. In the end, the Grand Jury found him not guilty, but after careful research, Frank decided the police officer could no longer work for the NYPD because he was a danger to others. I found this episode very interesting, and the discord between the Regan family at dinner was well-written and played.

On tonight’s episode, “Above and Beyond,” when a detective from Danny’s precinct is killed while working undercover, Frank puts on a full-court press to find his killer, only to discover that the deceased had a big secret. Meanwhile, Jamie and Eddie help Nicky track down a former classmate who is living on the streets.

To see what the big secret is, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm, Kitchen Nightmares, Hawaii Five-0, Hart of Dixie, I Found the Gown, and Say Yes to the Dress.

grimm52smallLast week on Grimm, Nick and Hank were trying to track down a young woman who was killing Wesen. As they attempted to figure out what kind of Wesen Theresa could be, they made a shocking discovery: she was a Grimm! Theresa told them she had know idea what that meant, but that the creatures who attacked her also referred to her as a “Grimm.” So Nick took her to the trailer and showed her the volumes of books on the Grimm legacy and lore. Meanwhile, Adalind was looking for her missing baby and turned to Monroe and Juliette for help. Unaware that it was Nick’s mother who took her child, Adalind contacted Viktor looking to make a deal for the return of her baby—and he decided to use this misunderstanding to his advantage.

I really like the addition of this new Buffy-like Grimm to the mix. It will be interesting to see if and/or how this character becomes a part of our favorite Wesen crime-fighting team and how that affects the dynamic of the group. It looks like she may be living with Nick and Juliette for the time being, so I’m curious to see how they function as a household. And I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when Adalind discovers the truth about what happened to her child and the consequences that arise from that.

On tonight’s episode, “My Fair Wesen,” Nick and Hank introduce Trubel to her new world by taking her on a ride-along, during which they investigate the murder of a young woman. Elsewhere, Adalind makes a discovery that may help her reclaim something she lost.

See what Adalind discovers tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Continuum, Relative Insanity, and The Writers’ Room.
