If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/19/14

Happy Victoria Day to my fellow Canadians! I hope you have all had a relaxing weekend like me, and for all you Americans…don’t worry, your turn is coming soon. While I soak up the last hours of the first long weekend of the summer, let’s see what we’re recommending to entertain you tonight.

mikemolly519smallMike & Molly has had a different season than the past three, with Molly no longer teaching and her character becoming a little more rough around the edges. All the changes aside, I’ve enjoyed it, especially with all the great guest stars, like Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates. It’s been fun to watch Molly pursue her dreams of being a writer, but I’m concerned that it may wreak havoc on their marriage. I guess next season will tell us that, right?

On tonight’s season finale, “Eight is Enough,” Molly gets accepted into an elite eight-week writer’s workshop in Iowa, but faces a big decision when Mike asks her not to go.

To see if Mike will let her follow her dream, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

bones519smallLast week on Bones, a swim coach was found murdered. At first, they thought he was having an affair, but it turned out that he was a drag queen in his spare time. After all their digging, they figured out the victim was shot while in the pool…and the shooter was in water, as well. They found ear damage on the victim, and Brennan knew the killer would have the same damage, so that pointed them in the direction of one of the coach’s swimmers, who they’d noticed was having problems with his ear when they went to interview everyone at the pool. The funniest parts of the episode, though, were the woman and her daughter at the beginning (who in the world tries to force her daughter into a well like she ran off and accidentally fell in, just for the media exposure?? That woman was absolutely mental. The little girl was brilliant. LOL), and new squintern, Jessica, and her attitude, especially toward Sweets.

Tonight is the season finale, and everything that’s been building all season comes to a head in what is truly one of the most exciting, well-done finales in the show’s history. We get to see kind of another side of Booth and even Brennan, and as much as I kind of hate how it ends (in the best way possible. LOL), I love, love, loved the episode. I’m very excited for you guys to see it.

On tonight’s episode, “The Recluse in the Recliner,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the death of Wesley Foster, a conspiracy blog writer who had arranged to meet up with Booth to discuss a previous case before his untimely death. Realizing that whoever killed Foster did not want him talking to Booth, the team has to try to figure out who is behind the death and how the previous case is relevant. As Booth and the Jeffersonian team dig deeper into the burgeoning conspiracy surrounding the man’s death, it’s evident Booth may be in over his head, and his future with the FBI is put in question.

See how the David Boreanaz-directed episode ends the season tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Rewrapped, Friends with Better Lives, Mike & Molly, Warehouse 13, The Maya Rudolph Show, & Mystery Diners.

warehouse13newsmallTonight, Warehouse 13 closes its doors—well, at least the TV series does. Last week, we wrapped up the final mystery of the season, as the team stopped Benedict Valda’s evil plan to steal the Warehouse, and in the process, Claudia’s sister was returned to normal. Pete sarcastically admitted to being in love with Myka, but human-lie-detector Jinks let out a bit of gasp, knowing that the statement was in fact true.

This final season has been really fun—from medieval faires to telenovelas, they’ve done a lot of creative and fun episodes in this really short season. Tonight, we say goodbye to all of these great characters in a unique version of a “clip show.” Will Pete and Myka finally get together? And what will happen to the rest of the Warehouse gang? Tonight’s episode is a great capper to a highly entertaining series that I’m really going to miss!

Today, Syfy will be airing episodes of Warehouse 13 all day starting at 8AM/7AMc, leading up to tonight’s series finale. If you missed any of the final season, those episodes will begin at 4/3c.

On tonight’s finale, “Endless,” the team learns that Warehouse 13 will be moving to a new location country, and they are asked by Mrs. Frederic to contribute to a time capsule, which they do after reliving the moment that defined their relationship to the top-secret storage facility for supernatural artifacts.

See how this fantastic, funny, heartwarming show ends tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Friends with Better Lives, The Maya Rudolph Show, 24: Live Another Day, and Rewrapped.

Megan’s Choice #2

thevoice2012smallWhat an incredible season it’s been on The Voice! Not only the singing, but the hilarious banter and pranks between the judges. In case you missed it, a couple of weeks ago, Blake (stupidly) tweeted out Adam’s personal cell phone number, so in turn, Adam dumped two backhoe buckets full of manure on Blake’s new truck last week. Well played, Adam. I don’t blame you one bit! All the kidding aside, last week’s result episode was heartbreaking because any of the remaining five going home was sad. In the end, we were left with Jake, Josh, and Christina, which means any of the three could win it. If I had to choose, I’d bet on Josh because he is amazing, but either of the other two are both capable, and I’d be equally happy with them winning.

On tonight’s episode, “Live Final Performances,” in the final phase of the competition, the remaining artists perform in front of coaches Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Shakira, and Usher during a live broadcast. One artist will be a step closer to being named “The Voice.”

To watch your favorite perform, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Bones, 24: Live Another Day, The Bachelorette, and The Maya Rudolph Show.
