If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/15/14

Happy Father’s Day to all the men out there today—and also to the moms who wear both hats! I hope your day is filled with whatever makes you the happiest and that you enjoy your family time. To finish off your day, let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice

cutthroatkitchensmallCutthroat Kitchen combines cooking, competition, and my favorite part: sabotage. I’m not sure what is more fun… Watching someone sabotage someone who has been sabotaging them the whole time, or watching the underdog who kept getting sabotaged end up with a spectacular dish. As a chef, there are some things that are really important, like heat, utensils, and knives. Well, in this show, those things could be taken away and replaced with all sorts of crazy stuff, like making your own utensils out of aluminum foil! I think every cook on here should practice before coming on the show with creative ways to cut without a knife. Personally, I love when they use the blade from the food processor, because that would be my first thought, too. What’s your favorite sabotage?

On tonight’s episode, “Panini, Meeny, Miny, Moe,” one chef is forced to perform a balancing act while they cook chicken pot pie. A childhood rhyme turns into one chef’s nightmare, and one chef must spring into action to save their cheesecake.

To see what craziness ensues on this episode, tune in to Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Game of Thrones, Drop Dead Diva, Guy’s Grocery Games, and Food Network Star.

gameofthrones615smallLast week’s episode of Game of Thrones was all about the battle at the Wall. As the Wildlings and their Giant friends started attacking the castle, Jon Snow quickly realized that he was going to have to step up and lead the men. The Night’s Watch lost a lot of men in the battle, but did manage to come out victorious—at least for the night. During the course of the battle, Ygritte came face-to-face with Jon and had an arrow aimed at him, but as she hesitated, she herself was shot through the heart with an arrow. Meanwhile, Sam showed courage in battle and even had his first kiss with Gilly. After the battle, Jon left the castle, seemingly planning to take on the rest of the Wildlings on his own.

While I didn’t find this episode quite as exciting as last season’s Blackwater battle, it was still pretty action-packed. Tonight is the season finale, and since we didn’t get to catch up with any of the other stories last week, I hope we get some answers tonight. Will the Stark sisters reunite? Will Tyrion be executed? And what exactly is Jon planning to do?

On tonight’s episode, “The Children,” Daenerys must face harsh realities; Bran learns more about his destiny; Tyrion sees the truth of his situation; and circumstances north of the Wall are altered by an unexpected arrival.

See how the season ends tonight on HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Believe, Crisis, Enlisted, Guy’s Grocery Games, Food Network Star, Halt and Catch Fire, Drop Dead Diva, Devious Maids, and Penny Dreadful.
