If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/13/14

I have been loving this summer so far, and TV is no exception to that. It’s been a great summer season of television so far, so let’s see what we’re recommending tonight to keep you going.

trueblood714smallTrue Blood has been rocking the boat left, right, and center since the beginning of this season. First we had the death of Tara, but last week, Alcide met his untimely death. Wow. I was actually shocked and a little upset because I’ll miss looking at him. Although I didn’t love his character and felt his story was played out, it doesn’t change the fact that I will miss him a little bit for sure. This season has taken a life of its own, and honestly, in order to survive, we’re all going to have to just hold on and enjoy the bumpy ride.

On tonight’s episode, “Death is not the End,” in the aftermath of yet another bloodbath, Sam, Sookie, and Jason find themselves the bearers of bad news in Bon Temps and beyond. Pam recalls the events that led her and Eric to Shreveport and Fangtasia. Bill and Jessica get nourishment from unexpected sources. Following a new lead, Sookie enlists a band of vampires and humans to track down the H-Vamps.

To see what crazy turns tonight holds, tune in to HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Witches of East End, Big Brother, Wipeout, The Strain, Guy’s Grocery Games, Cutthroat Kitchen, and The Leftovers.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Tonight, FX premieres the new thriller, The Strain, from executive producers/writers Guillermo del Toro and and Chuck Hogan and is based on their trilogy of novels of the same name. Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Cory Stoll, House of Cards), the head of a CDC team in New York City, is called in to investigate a potential outbreak when a plane arrives on the tarmac with all of its passengers and crew dead from an unknown cause. What they don’t yet realize is that an ancient vampire-like creature has hitched a ride on the plane and starts to wreak havoc on the city. The rest of the series cast also includes David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, and Jonathan Hyde.

I hadn’t even heard of the novels, so when I saw the title, I was expecting the series to be something like the film Outbreak. However, I was pleasantly surprised by tonight’s creepy, gory, tense, and exciting premiere! Definitely worth checking out—but you may want to leave the lights on. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Night Zero,” a plane filled with dead passengers spurs an investigation in the opener of this series, in which a vampiric virus spreads through New York City.

See if this new show catches your interest tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Brain Games: Brain vs. Body, Guy’s Grocery Games, Food Network Star, The Last Ship, Falling Skies, Halt and Catch Fire, Devious Maids, True Blood, The Leftovers, Ray Donovan, and Masters of Sex.
