If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/28/14

Since Friday is a light night of TV, these are the last recommendations we’ll be making before the long Labor Day weekend starts (at least for those of in the United States). If you haven’t already cleared your DVR backlog, this is the weekend to do so because the onslaught of fall TV will be here before you know it, and you will need more free recording space than you can find! 🙂

defiance828smallTonight, the second season of Defiance comes to a close with back-to-back episodes. Last week, Deidre (aka “Treasure Doll”) was murdered. With Nolan off looking for Irisa, Amanda was in charge of the investigation, and Alak was her prime suspect. Stahma assumed the murderer was either Alak or her husband, so she arranged for someone else to confess to the crime, but Amanda wasn’t falling for that. In the end, we discovered that it was Alak’s wife Christie who killed this woman who was trying to steal her husband—and when Stahma realized this, she couldn’t have looked prouder. Meanwhile, Nolan and Tommy tried to grab Irisa and bring her back, but the thing possessing her fought back, knocking out Nolan and stabbing Tommy.

Will Nolan be able to save Tommy before he bleeds to death? Can they remove whatever is possessing Irisa and the others and stop the Irzu’s plan to terraform the Earth? And will Amanda finally get even with Stahma for what she did to her sister? It should be an exciting two hours!

On tonight’s first episode, “All Things Must Pass,” Nolan races to save Tommy’s life and stop Irisa; tensions between Amanda and Stahma lead to a showdown. And then in “I Almost Prayed,” season 2 comes to a close with Nolan fighting both the Earth Republic and old acquaintances to stop Irisa’s destructive plan from becoming a reality. He’s also determined to save his adoptive daughter from the Kaziri forces that have been possessing her before his own friends attempt to kill her. Linda Hamilton guest stars.

See if Nolan can win the fight and how the showdown with Amanda and Stahma turns out tonight on Syfy at 8/7c & 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, The Quest, Welcome to Sweden, Married, and You’re the Worst.

worldswildestcommercialssmallThere are times when television serves no greater purpose than to amuse, and tonight’s presentation of The World’s Wildest Commercials definitely fits into that category. I won’t lie… I often find myself amused by these types of specials because it gives me something to giggle and gasp at. Some of the commercials will be funny, and some will make us go “What on earth were they thinking?” I’m ready for a night of mindless TV. What about you?

On tonight’s presentation, Suburgatory star and SNL alum Chris Parnell will host an hour-long special that features a top 20 countdown plus additional wild commercials grouped together in entertaining categories. Highlights include girls who go gaga for their men, animals with attitude, and even spots that hit below the belt. Many of the spots have never been seen in the U.S.

To see what this special has to offer, tune in to ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Defiance, The Quest, Beat Bobby Flay, and Rush.
