If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/27/14

Well, we’re all still sick. Fun stuff. I feel like, well, poo, so let’s just get to it, shall we? Megan’s power went out Tuesday night when a storm knocked out some wires, so here’s what Kyle & I are recommending.

Jenny’s Choice

motive2014asmallI picked Motive last week, and it turned out to be a great episode. The case was interesting—a professor/wannabe writer killed an author who was responsible for turning down his submitted manuscript. He used chemistry to make a poison that he then inserted into the victim’s perfume when he broke into her house. Without meaning to, he set up the husband when it turned out not only the author was killed, but her lover got sick from exposure as well—dying a slower, yet painful death. Then the killer tried to set up a student of his who was a huge fan of the author’s, but the police were able to determine who really killed her—and justice was honestly served when it turned out he’d exposed himself to the poison and was dying. Meanwhile, Angie was struggling with the fact that she was subpoenaed to testify against Cross, and Vega knew just what she needed and set it up so her son surprised her with a visit.

Tonight is the season finale, and I’m anxious to see what’s going to happen with the trial. There’s no show without Angie Flynn, so she can’t get fired, but how does she make it out of and still keep her detective position? Will Cross be back next season? So many questions!

On tonight’s episode, “For You I Die,” with the League of Nations trial nearing, a major case from Detective Flynn and Sergeant Cross’s past resurfaces, and the fallout causes anguish for both. Meanwhile, the latest case involving the murder of a prosecutor becomes personal for Cross, and Angie knows they must come clean about their past. Kenny Johnson (who’s been on what seems like everything… lol) guest stars.

To see how the trial goes for Det. Flynn & Sgt. Cross tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Penn & Teller: Fool Us, So You Think You Can Dance, Young & Hungry, Mystery Girls, America’s Got Talent, Property Brothers, Restaurant Stakeout, Rowhouse Showdown, Legends, Hot in Cleveland, Taxi Brooklyn, Mystery Diners, Top Chef Duels, & Wahlburgers.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

young&hungry827smallTonight, ABC’s two new summer comedies, Young & Hungry and Mystery Girls, end their first 10-episode seasons. I found these to be a fun pairing that did a good job filling the gap while Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy are between half-seasons. All of these ABC Family comedies have that TGIF feel—though they’re quite a bit less family-friendly than the TGIF I remember!

Young & Hungry has that same “will they or won’t they” that Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy utilized in their early seasons. Except in this case, it’s more of a will they or won’t they *again*. As Josh’s wedding approaches, will Caroline discover that Gabi slept with her fiance, and will the wedding actually happen? Or is there still hope for a Gabi and Josh union? As for Mystery Girls, I must say that I wasn’t really a fan at first, but the series grew on me over the course of the season. I have no idea why they decided to air the pilot fourth, but once we finally got that back story and premise of the series, I actually found it to be a really fun show. I don’t believe either of these series has been picked up for more episodes as of yet, so just in case they aren’t, I hope we aren’t left with some shocking cliffhangers tonight!

mysterygirls827smallOn tonight’s Young & Hungry finale, “Young & Thirty (…and Getting Married!),” Josh and Caroline’s wedding gets pushed up, leading a frantic Caroline to forget Josh’s birthday. Gabi then allows Caroline to present her very special gift for Josh as her own, but Josh’s reaction to the present makes Gabi regret doing that. And then in the Mystery Girls finale, “The Killer Returns,” Nick fears for his life when Zanucci uncovers his location after seeing a Mystery Girls commercial. Meanwhile, Charlie’s husband expresses concern for her safety, so she reconsiders her new career path.

See how it all plays out on tonight’s (hopefully) season finales on ABC Family at 8/7c & 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Extant, Taxi Brooklyn, Top Chef Duels, Legends, and Franklin & Bash.
