If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/19/14

It’s an odd week here at TV Is My Pacifier. Megan’s grandmother died, so she’s taking at least today off. My thoughts and prayers are with Megan and her family. We love you, sweetie! Meanwhile, I’ve been driving myself nuts trying to get everything together to send the care packages to the two groups of soldiers some friends & I “adopted,” so I’m a little frazzled at the moment. Kyle’s gone several days to the Syfy deal for the press, but he wrote up Sunday’s pick, so check out what we’re recommending.

brooklyn991019smallI like having Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Sundays because it’s a fairly light day for me and it’s really nice to have something scripted, since almost everything else I watch on Sunday nights are reality-type shows. Last week was all about the Jimmy Jab Games, which showed the squad competing in weird events like eating REALLY old Chinese food, dressing up and trying to see how many people they could fool into not knowing who they were, and more. Jake admitted he still has feelings for Amy, even though he and Rosa both know he has to move on. We’ll see if he’s able to do that… I hope he’s not!

On tonight’s episode, “Halloween II,” the Peralta/Holt annual Halloween bet continues when Jake challenges the Captain that he can steal his watch before midnight. Meanwhile, Gina is upset that her dance team, Floorgasm, kicks her off the squad, and Terry confronts her about her bad attitude.

To see if Jake can best Captain Holt, tune in to FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Guy’s Grocery Games, CSI, Halloween Wars, Catch a Contractor, Hungry Games, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

thesimpsons1019smallTonight, The Simpsons airs its twenty-fifth Treehouse of Horror special, giving viewers another three fun tales of horror. This year, Bart and Lisa get transported into an alternate world where Springfield Elementary is a Hell-based school for demons, where Bart feels right at home. The other two stories include a spoof on The Others, where the Simpsons meet the ’80s era version of themselves; and an ode to Stanley Kubrick with Moe and Homer as part of a “A Clockwork Orange”-like gang of British hooligans.

I always really enjoy these Treehouse of Horror episodes—I can’t believe this is the 25th one of these! The trilogy short stories format is great—the writers always find fun and imaginative ways to put these familiar characters into completely strange and different realities, situations, or parodies while still maintaining their core personalities. It’s a nice break from the traditional episodes once a year and has become a Halloween tradition for the past two and a half decades! I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s trilogy of tales–it’s the perfect starter to tonight’s Halloween-themed line-up on FOX!

Check out the fun tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, CSI, Once Upon a Time, Resurrection, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy, Mulaney, Guy’s Grocery Games, Homeland, The Affair, The Walking Dead, and Talking Dead.
