If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/7/14

Happy Wednesday! It’s Hump Day, which is good because it means we’re halfway through the week. It’s been a great week for TV so far, and tonight promises to continue that trend, so check out what we’re recommending.

csi57smallLast week was the spin-off preview on CSI, with guest star Patricia Arquette. She played an FBI agent in the Cyber Crime Division, on the chase of a sadist who bilked men out of money using the body, face, and voice from a woman who he found on social media. She was brought to Las Vegas when he hired a hitman to kill his latest mark’s wife. The case broke wide open when the woman who the sadist’s “Kitty” had been modeled after—Susan McDowell—showed up at the station. Special Agent Ryan set him up, pretending to be McDowell so he would confront her and threaten her. He sliced her arm, but in the end, he admitted enough that they were able to arrest him for everything. Unfortunately, the hitman got away. That was the only part that sucked.

Tonight is the season finale, and I think it’s going to be Paul Guilfoyle’s (Capt. Jim Brass) last episode. He’s been around for all fourteen season, so not having him there will definitely leave a hole.

On tonight’s episode, “Dead in His Tracks,” the CSIs investigate a present-day crime with ties to a mob heist that occurred 25 years ago. Meanwhile, Brass has a decision to make when his daughter attempts suicide. Treat Williams (Chicago Fire, Everwood) guest stars.

Find out what decision Brass makes and how the CSIs solve the crime tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Hot in Cleveland, Chicago PD, & The Soul Man.

chicagopd57smallI have fallen completely in love with Chicago PD. It has quickly become one of my favorite new shows of the season, and I simply cannot get enough. Last week’s episode was an emotional rollercoaster, and I was crying watching as the doctor’s sister was declared brain dead and her liver saved Burgess’s niece. I also loved the moment between Burgess and Ruzek when he came to see her at the hospital—there is so much sexual tension there that you could cut it with a knife. Unfortunately, in order for these two to get together, Ruzek must either break up with his fiancé or cheat… Decisions, decisions. Romantic relationships aside, this show has incredibly strong cases and the cast is so fantastic that I can’t wait for more.

On tonight’s episode, “My Way,” Pulpo, the man responsible for kidnapping Antonio’s son, is released to help Cmdr. Perry in tracking down a dangerous cartel leader; Ruzek gets some difficult news.

To see if Antonio can work with Pulpo, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, CSI, Law & Order: SVU, Save My Bakery, and The 100.

survivorcagayansmallI’m picking Survivor once again this week—this has just been an amazing season of blindsides! Last week, it looked like Spencer had no chance of staying. His only ally, Tasha, once again won the individual immunity, which meant that the other alliance would be voting him out. So Spencer got to work on Tony, trying to make him paranoid about a possible final-four all-girl alliance that would go after the three guys. This somehow worked, and Tony got Woo to join him in blindsiding Jefra.

Kass and Trish can’t possibly trust Tony anymore with all these moves he’s been making behind their backs! While they know Tony has the normal immunity idol, they don’t know he also has the one with special powers. He should just let his automatic get-out-of-jail-free idol activate automatically and don’t even think about using his normal one until he has to. I really hate Tony—I find him so annoying—and I really hope the rest of the group starts trying to vote him out soon, as it’s going to take at least two—and more-likely three—weeks to actually get rid of him!

On tonight’s episode, “Havoc to Wreak,” the castaways try to crack a code to earn a spot in the final five; one player’s paranoia threatens another person’s stake in the game; Tony’s closest confidant is wooed by another alliance.

See if there’s another blindside and who goes home tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Revolution, The 100, Melissa & Joey, Baby Daddy, The Americans, Legit, Flipping Out, and Save My Bakery.
