If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/30/14

Summer break has started in my house, which means lots of swimming, fishing, and camping are on the schedule, as well as a few soccer games and trips to the skate park. I predict a very tired mommy soon, so before I lose my energy completely, let’s take a look at what we’re recommending on TV tonight to help me relax.

masterchef2014smallMasterChef has been full of drama this season, yet they still manage to bring excellent food to the table. Last week, Leslie really showed more of his true colors, and I really hope he goes home soon. When he was telling Ahran to “grow some balls,” I wanted to reach through the television and smack him. He may have skated by with that steak last week, but his attitude is going to be his undoing sooner than later. I’m really rooting for Christian, Elise, and Daniel right now and hope they rise to the top fast.

On tonight’s episode, “Top 16 Compete,” in the next mystery box challenge, contestants must prepare a unique dish using various canned foods. The winner will have a significant advantage in the next round and, with the help of MasterChef winner Luca Manfe and MasterChef Junior winner Alexander Weiss, determine which former MasterChef champion’s specialty dish each contestant will prepare in the elimination round.

To see who manages to come out on top, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Mistresses, 24: Live Another Day, Harry Potter: The Making of Diagon Alley, and Teen Wolf.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

majorcrimes630smallI’m enjoying Major Crimes this season, especially since we’re finished with the “Rusty’s stalker” story line. Last week had a lot of funny going on. The team’s favorite…non-cop, Dick Tracy, was back. He reported a murder, lthough when they got there, it turned out to be a dog. In the end, he was right, that the dog’s death was kind of murder by proxy—the man who’d killed the dog’s elderly owner had poisoned the crab cakes the old woman ate, and they got fed to the dog by Dick Tracy after the dog’s normal food went missing (also by the killer). It was a really ridiculous story, but hysterical. On the other side of things, Rusty’s mom visited with Rusty and Sharon, and Rusty learned that his mom had chosen rehab only to avoid going to prison. He wasn’t sure how to feel about that…and that will continue to come into play, I think.

On tonight’s episode, “Letting it Go,” the violent murder of an alleged rapist gives the squad the emotional task of questioning possible suspects. Meanwhile, Rusty begins to question his mother’s motives as he catches her in a lie. Ever Carradine and Ransford Doherty guest star.

See what lie Rusty catches his mother and who killed the rapist tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Rewrapped, Longmire, Murder in the First, & Mystery Diners.

underthedome630smallTonight, Under the Dome returns for a second season. When we last saw Chester’s Mill, the teens had activated the mini-dome and released the black egg. Julia picked up the egg, becoming the monarch, but this didn’t sit well with Junior, so he grabbed Barbie and took him back to the police station. Big Jim threatened to kill Barbie in the gallows if Julia didn’t bring him the egg. But she dropped the egg into the water, causing the sky to fill with pink stars. As everyone stared at the intense white light in the sky, Big Jim called to his son to pull the lever that would execute Barbie.

Will Big Jim go through with Barbie’s execution? What do these pink stars mean? Will we ever get any answers as to the reason for or source of the Dome? And will life in Chester’s Mill ever return to normal? I hope we get some answers tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Heads Will Roll,” season 2 begins with Big Jim deciding Barbie’s fate. Meanwhile, the Dome presents a new threat when it becomes magnetized; and Julia seeks the help of a stranger to save the life of a mysterious girl who may hold clues to the Dome’s origin.

Find out if Barbie’s head rolls tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Harry Potter: The Making of Diagon Alley, MasterChef, 24: Live Another Day, Switched at Birth, Rewrapped, Major Crimes, Murder in the First, and Teen Wolf.
