If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/3/14

Comic-Con is less than three weeks away, and now I’m in full panic mode as panel and press room schedules are starting to go out. This will be the first year I’ll be officially attending as press, so I’m trying to schedule more press-y things than ever before. Tomorrow is the Fourth of July, which means there’s pretty much just fireworks on TV. So we’ve got some recommendations to help you get ready for the long (slow tv) weekend.

bigbrother2012smallLast night on Big Brother, Caleb and Devin got paranoid that greenskeeper Donny was actually a Navy Seal or some kind of super soldier. So they made him the target of “Bomb Squad” alliance. It was heartbreaking to see how trustful Donny was toward Devin and how much of a jerk he was in return. Fortunately, the not-so-simple-minded Donny won the spelling veto competition by leaps and bounds. So when Donny took himself off the block, Caleb put Joey up in his place because she tried to start an all-girl alliance.

Tonight, we get the first eviction of the new season of Big Brother, and either Paola or Joey will be sent packing. I don’t really care which one goes—I am just so happy that Donny was able to save himself last night, because I really want him to win!

Find out who gets sent home tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Rookie Blue, Undateable, Defiance, Dominion, and Rectify.

undateable73smallI’m really digging Undateable, although I was sad when Danny basically sabotaged his relationship with Sabrina. Also last week, Justin’s dad, played by one of my fave’s, Ed Cavanaugh, stopped by the bar. They don’t have a very good relationship—when Justin was growing up, his dad was gone a lot to focus on his music career. Their relationship as adults is strained, to say the least. And Danny tried to help by getting Justin’s dad there for Justin’s birthday, but he ended up having to basically kidnap him to get him there.

There are three new episodes tonight, with the third being the season finale. I’m sad that it’s coming to a close, and there’s no word yet on renewal. It’s a cute show, it’s done well in the ratings, so I have my fingers crossed, but you never know with these networks, so I’m not sure I’m holding my breath.

On tonight’s first episode, “Let There Be Light,” Danny and Justin disagree on how to deal with an annoying neighbor. Meanwhile, the guys make jokes at Danny’s expense to get on Sabrina’s good side, but Danny surprises all of them with his reaction. Then on the second episode, “Danny’s Boys,” the guys pool their money to help Justin pay off his loans for the bar, but overstep their boundaries when they start to make business decisions without his consent. Meanwhile, Shelly and Brett secretly ditch Burski to pick up dates, and Leslie accidently blows their cover. Finally, on the season finale, “Go for Gary,” Danny and Justin compete for a girl’s attention, and the outcome is shocking. Meanwhile, the guys check their “Lulu” scores, and Burski uses the app in his favor.

Laugh along with me tonight on NBC at 8:30/7:30, 9:01/8:01c, & 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, Chopped Canada, Rookie Blue, & Last Comic Standing.

choppedcanadasmallWhile I love my dramas, there is still such a special place in my TV schedule for cooking shows, and Chopped Canada is definitely at the top of the list. I loved when they had to use the chicken skin in the appetizer last week because that’s something most of us would usually just toss in the trash. I also adore the judges because they always have knowledge of the odd ingredients that the cooks get and they like to point out what they should have done.

On tonight’s episode, “Who Gives a Geoduck?” chicken livers and seaweed crack open this competition as four chefs fight it out. Ingredients are missed, and a clam of a different colour causes complications in the dinner round. A familiar comfort food poses a new challenge in the final round as both chefs struggle to repurpose it into a prize-winning dessert.

To see who makes the best of the liver and seaweed, tune in to Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Hell’s Kitchen, Gang Related, Big Brother, and Rookie Blue.
