If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/2/14

What a difference a couple of weeks makes in TV land! A couple of weeks ago, we were bombarded by tons of season finales, and now we are a little less busy with a few new episodes each night—it’s bittersweet. On one hand, it’s a nice break, but still, I miss all my shows. While I ponder my need to fulfill my TV addiction, let’s see what we’re recommending to help ease the withdrawal.

mistresses62smallTonight is the second season premiere of Mistresses, and what a mess we’re going to get into after last season. This show is pure drama that has great writing along with a fabulous cast. I have to be honest that at first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this show because it was too much like a soap opera, but after a few episodes, I was hooked. Whether it’s an illicit affair or a secret pregnancy, this show is one to keep you on the edge of your seat constantly with eagerness to see where they’ll go next. If you haven’t watched this show in the past, now is the time to start for sure.

On tonight’s episode, “Rebuild,” eight months later, Savi, having cheated death, makes the most of her second chance. Karen struggles to rebound from loss, both personal and professional. April’s life gets interesting when old friend, Mickey (guest star Joseph May), returns and pushes her to make some changes, and Joss tries her hand at a new job: party planner to wealthy Angelenos.

To see what our crazy ladies get up to this season, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef, 24: Live Another Day, Whose Line is it Anyway?, and Rewrapped.

longmire62smallWhen we last left Longmire, Henry was being arrested for murder after they found the missing teeth from the guy who murdered Longmire’s wife. Henry didn’t kill him—in fact, neither did the man Henry arranged to take care of the killer. That man left him alive after beating the snot out of him, taking the knocked-out teeth as proof or what not. Henry held onto it because of one his tribe’s beliefs, but it may well be his downfall. I don’t think Lou Diamond Phillips is going anywhere, so somehow, Henry has to get out of this, but how? In other parts of the show, Cady now knows that her mother was murdered, and while she and her dad were at odds for a while, but they’re doing okay now. Not perfect, but okay. Meanwhile, Vic was basically being stalked by a one-time ex-lover & partner (Ed) who was a pretty bad guy. She hired Hector (the same guy Henry hired to take care of Walt’s wife’s killer) to beat up Ed, but Ed blamed Walt, and when Vic learned of that, she decided to take the blame herself. Walt then tracked Henry down and arrested him. Unfortunately, Ed decided that wasn’t good enough, so he checked himself out of the hospital, leaving Vic an ominous note that he’d see her soon. When Vic’s husband learned who had been stalking her, he gave her the cold shoulder, and we were left with Vic sitting alone in her house, gun at the ready. Finally, Branch would’ve won the election, but with all the goings on, he ended up trying to solve Cady’s hit and run case, and he was shot. Walt rushed to his aid. I don’t think he’s going anywhere either, so…

So yeah, if you can’t tell, I’m anxious for the new season to start. There’s lots up in the air, and I can’t wait to see how the chips will fall. Walt Longmire is truly one of the good guys. He’s not afraid to do what needs to be done, but he’s all about truth, justice, and the American way. I love him.

On tonight’s episode, “The White Warrior,” Walt deals with the aftermath of Henry’s arrest and Branch’s shooting. The search for the shooter, however, is complicated by Branch’s insistence that it was someone known to be dead.

Find out if Walt can get Henry out of custody and if they can solve Branch’s shooting tonight on A&E at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Rewrapped, Whose Line is it Anyway?, American Ninja Warrior, & Mystery Diners.

rewrappedsmallIf you’re having trouble finding something new to watch these days, why not check out the fun, 30-minute cooking competition series Rewrapped, hosted by Joey Fatone? Each week, three chefs battle it out to see who can earn the most points after 2 rounds of cooking. In the first round, the chefs try to reproduce a classic snack treat, and head judge Marc Summers and his guest judges give them points based on how closely their product looks and tastes like the original. Then, in the second round, the chefs must use the snack product in an inventive way to create a unique dish of their own.

I’ve been quite impressed so far at how well the chefs have been able to reproduce these classic snacks. I wouldn’t even know where to start if someone handed me a specific cookie, pretzel, snack cake, or potato chip and asked me to recreate it from scratch in 30 minutes!

On tonight’s episode, “Milano, Milano! I Love You!” the chefs take on Pepperidge Farm Mint Milano Cookies.

See who takes home the prize tonight on Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording MasterChef and 24: Live Another Day.
