If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/17/14

With Comic-Con just a week away, I’m in full panic mode. I thought that getting the press badge was the hard part—but getting into the press rooms I want is proving to be even more difficult! I’m also trying to catch up on all of the series I plan to see there—a task that isn’t helped any when we keep getting nights like tonight with a half dozen new series premieres! We’ve got some tips to help you choose from tonight’s vast TV offerings!

married717smallTonight, FX adds two new relationship comedies to its lineup (isn’t this what they created FXX for?!) — Married and You’re the Worst. I’m really excited for the former, which finds married couple Russ (Nat Faxon, Ben and Kate) and Lina Bowman (Judy Greer, Archer) trying to rediscover the loving relationship they once had, before kids and suburbia sucked the romance out of it. While they fall back to the friendship between them to get through the tough times, their other friends don’t seem any better off — there’s divorced AJ (Brett Gelman, Go On) who is still not over his ex-wife, and married Jess (Jenny Slate) whose much older husband can’t keep up with her.

I really love this cast and can’t wait to check out tonight’s premiere — even though the last thing I need is yet another show added to my already way too long summer TV list!

On tonight’s premiere, “Pilot,” an inappropriate relationship is developed with a waxing technician.

Check out this new comedy tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Rookie Blue, Hollywood Game Night, Welcome to Sweden, Working the Engels, You’re the Worst, Mythbusters, Rush, Satisfaction, Defiance, and Dominion.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

rookieblue717smallRookie Blue has been really keeping us on the edge lately, not only with the cases but with our favorite characters. What is going on with Chris and his drug use? They need to wrap that story up before they completely ruin his character. I understand completely how Andy had to get her rookie, Duncan, off the job because he was not cut out for being a cop and could have gotten Andy killed when he froze under pressure. The emotional side of Gail we’ve been seeing has been very intense and intriguing. I’m looking forward to more growth for her character. Hopefully the writers keep Andy and Sam moving in the right direction, because they broke up a good couple to get them back together.

On tonight’s episode, “Two Truths and a Lie,” the team searches for missing high-school teacher Brian Gowdy, a man with no apparent enemies.

To see where this case takes us, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Hell’s Kitchen, Welcome to Sweden, Hollywood Game Night, Working the Engels, Married, Satisfaction, Rush, and Gang Related.
