If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/20/14

I love that we’re to Monday, which is my favorite day of the week for TV right now. There’s so much great TV on that I can’t help but smile. Kyle’s away for the Syfy press event, but Megan & I are here to share our picks, so check them out.

Jenny’s Choice #1

themiller1020smallTonight is the season premiere of one of my favorite new comedies last season, The Millers. In case you didn’t watch last year, here’s what you missed: Nathan was married and didn’t tell his parents he got divorced. When his parents came to visit, his happiness being away from his wife prompted his parents to get their own divorce. His overbearing mother moved in with Nathan while his quiet father moved in with Nathan’s sister and her family.

It’s really a cute show with lots of laughs, and I’m so glad it’s back. And this season, Sean Hayes has joined the cast, so that’ll be an interesting addition.

On tonight’s episode, “Movin’ Out (Carol’s Song),” Carol begins her search for a new apartment, causing Nathan and Debbie to race each other to find her a place that is the farthest away from each of them. During the course of her house-hunting, Carol meets and develops an instant bond with Kip Finkle (Hayes), her new best friend.

See how Carol and Kip meet tonight on CBS at 8:30/7:30c.

Megan’s Choice

ncisla1020smallTonight, I think that everyone should be watching NCIS: LA because this season has been incredible so far and I don’t see any sign of it stopping. We have been watching as Hetty gets questioned in Washington, while back in LA, her places (yes, multiple, because a woman like her can never be too careful) are being breached by intruders looking to kidnap or kill her. Hetty had her personal information sold on the Internet, which is why Director Vance believes there’s a mole in Hetty’s operations. I can’t imagine who, but whoever it is, they’re going to be very sorry. We also discovered that Mattias Draeger is taking advantage of the leak of her information to come back and revisit his old vendetta against her—but we saw Callen make it very clear to the team that because of that, they will make good on their promise to kill him. During all of the attacks on Hetty’s properties, we also saw Nell pretend to be Hetty, which led to her killing a man—the first one she’s ever killed—which was a traumatic moment for her. I was really impressed with how she handled herself, but I know this isn’t the end of this trauma for her. This episode didn’t just have some amazingly intricate story lines about Hetty, but we also got quite a few tidbits concerning Kensi and Deeks. They are so adorable together. In the beginning of the episode, we saw them wake up on the couch together, but the moment that had me was when Kensi was upset after the Department of Justice agent was questioning her about Afghanistan and Deeks held her, then worked his magic and made her smile. That’s why I love them together… They balance each other out and are able to help each other through the worst of times.

On tonight’s episode, “The 3rd Choir,” when the team learns that someone from their past is targeting one of their own, the desperately search the city. Meanwhile, Operational Psychologist Nate Getz visits Nell to help her through her traumatic experience.

To see if the team can track down Draeger before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Sleepy Hollow, Gotham, The Voice, The Big Bang Theory, The Millers, Scorpion, and The Blacklist.

Jenny’s Choice #2

castle1020smallMy second pick tonight is the new episode of Castle. I’m glad to see they’re getting back to the normal, fun episodes of the show. If you know me, you know I wasn’t happy at all with the season premiere and the story line about Castle and where he was. Maybe they’ll change that when we learn more, but for now, I felt it was an unnecessary bump in the road to their happiness. But last week was a nice step back to normal, and this week seems like it will be as well.

On tonight’s episode, “Child’s Play,” when an ice cream vender is shot, evidence leads Beckett and Castle to believe that an unknown second-grader may have vital information about the case. Castle goes undercover at an elementary school to try and identify the second-grader but nothing goes as planned.

Check out “Mr. Castle” tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, Hungry Games, Mystery Diners, Scorpion, NCIS: LA, & House vs. House.
