If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/14

I’m excited for this weekend, as I’ll be heading to Orlando for the annual Syfy Digital Press Tour. This is the first time I’ll be attending this event when there isn’t a set visit involved, but it sounds like they’ve got plenty of other fun activities planned in addition to hearing from the cast and creators of many of Syfy’s exciting new shows that will be coming later this year and next. But we’ve still got a couple more days before the weekend, and also that means another batch of TV recommendations…

parenthood1016smallLast week’s Parenthood was another emotion-filled episode as Zeek went in for heart surgery. As the family anxiously awaited the results of the operation in the waiting room, Amber went on a road trip with Drew to tell Ryan about the baby. Even though Ryan seemed all on board to be a father, Amber had to make the tough decision to break things off with him. Meanwhile, Sarah tried to bond with Hank’s daughter Ruby, but when Sarah saw her shoplifting at the store, she didn’t know what to do. Also, Crosby and Adam fought over how to handle a disastrous situation that threatened the future of the recording studio, and Julia finally told Joel that she was seeing someone else.

I originally just wanted Julia and Joel to get back together, but they went and made her new boyfriend a likaeable, great guy, and now I’m torn. This series always does a great job of pulling at your heart strings, and it was a tense and emotionally charged time last week with the family in the waiting room. Being its final season, this is a show that could have easily killed off Zeek last week—I still have my doubts he’ll survive the series, but it’s good to see the Braverman clan intact for a little while longer. I also suspect that Ryan will be back in Amber’s life before the end of the series.

On tonight’s episode, “A Potpourri of Freaks,” Max forms an intimate new friendship. Elsewhere, Sarah encounters Sandy and tries to understand the role she plays in Ruby’s life; Hank deals with a diplomacy challenge; Julia and Joel worry that their separation is having an adverse effect on their kids; and Crosby tries to avoid a crisis by going after Oliver.

Check out all the drama tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Bad Judge, A to Z, Bones, and Gracepoint.

bones1016smallWhat an emotional rollercoaster Bones has been already this season, and we’re only going into the fourth episode. I have always been a huge fan of Sweets, so when we lost him in the season premiere after just finding out that Daisy was pregnant with his child, I was devastated. Honestly, I get that John Francis Daley left to go on to directing and such things, but I am still sad. That sadness aside, I was moved by last week’s episode and how the team is slowly saying goodbye to their beloved friend. It is hard to watch Booth lose such hope in others, seeing as he has always had such a faith in the FBI, but I do see some growth in the relationship with Aubrey. (He’ll never be as awesome as Sweets, though…) Last week’s case was kinky on all levels, especially the level of a bondage room that the wife knew about. Insane! All I can say is I’m very excited to see where this season goes…and they had better not kill off any more of my favorites this season, or I may need counselling.

On tonight’s episode, “The Geek in the Guck,” the Jeffersonian team, with the help of Special Agent James Aubrey, investigate the murder of a video game designer whose remains were found washed up in a river. When the team uncovers more about the fortune the victim had acquired throughout his career, everyone who was close to him becomes a suspect. However, the investigation takes a turn when they discover that the victim was playing his own games on people. Meanwhile, “squintern” Jessica Warren enlightens the team about the educational cooperative with which she has been involved, and Brennan and Booth discuss Christine’s future.

To see which games got this gamer killed, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, Food Truck Face Off, The Vampire Diaries, Gracepoint, A to Z, and Beat Bobby Flay.
