If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/27/14

It was an incredibly hectic weekend in my house, and I have a feeling with Halloween on Friday, we aren’t going to see this week showing signs of slowing down. I’m looking forward to relaxing with some great television and invite you to do the same—let’s see what we’re recommending.

2brokegirls1027smallTonight is the season premiere of 2 Broke Girls, and while this show often attracts mixed reviews for its offside humor, I personally enjoy this show immensely. There’s something very amusing about Caroline and Max together that makes hilarious magic on my TV screen. The problem with the show is that the episodes kind of went downhill a bit for the finale, but we did at least get to see Max get her GED and her diploma. I also enjoyed seeing the diner gang come support Max at her graduation, but I would like to see more character growth for everyone this season. Despite a few story hiccups, I am looking forward to a new season, and regardless, I’m going to find it funny, because I always do.

On tonight’s premiere, “And the Reality Problem,” a television producer approaches Max and Caroline about shooting an episode of a Kardashians’ reality show at their cupcake window.

To see how Max handles Caroline freaking out about this, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

miketysonmysteriessmallTonight, Adult Swim adds the new 15-minute animated series Mike Tyson Mysteries to its Monday night lineup. As a kid growing up in the 1980s, one of my favorite Saturday morning cartoons was Mister T. In that series, Mr. T played a gymnastics coach who traveled around with his team as they solved mysteries while learning life lessons. When I heard about this new Mike Tyson Mysteries series at San Diego Comic-Con, I was really excited, as it sounded like a callback to that Mister T cartoon and other shows like Scooby Doo.

This new series finds Mike Tyson going from fighting in the boxing ring to fighting crime and solving mysteries on the streets. To help him in his adventures, Tyson is armed with his magical face tattoo and the Mike Tyson Mystery Team, which includes the Ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry (Jim Rash), Mike’s adopted Korean daughter Yung Hee (Rachel Ramras), and an alcoholic talking pigeon (Norm MacDonald) who was once a man. The show sounds like a lot of fun—I can’t wait to check out tonight’s premiere!

On tonight’s episode, “The End,” Mike Tyson is asked to help Cormac McCarthy finish his latest novel, but is interrupted by a Chupacabra.

Check out this latest animated comedy and see if it’s for you tonight on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network) at 10:30/9:30c

I’ll also be watching/recording The Millers, Scorpion, Castle, The Blacklist, Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, Jane the Virgin, and Top Chef.

ncisla1027smallNCIS: LA is having one hell of an amazing season, and I am loving every moment of it. Last week, we saw Hetty return to Los Angeles, despite being advised not to. How awesome was she on the plane full of soldiers? I was giggling a lot at that. She went home to save her team because Mattias Draeger was hunting for her, and in the end, she got there just in time. Nell, despite admitting to Nate that she didn’t know if she would shoot again, came to Hetty’s rescue just in the nick of time, and I was so happy for her. Unfortunately, Chief Investigator Wallace got caught in the crossfire and ended up being shot by Draeger. Speaking of Wallace… She didn’t know Sam was married, and there was an adorable scene of her hitting on him and him turning her down, but Sam was so cute when Callen tried to find out what was going on. Hetty got to shoot Draeger, saving the day once again, and he was taken into custody. What I’m curious to know is if Kensi and Deeks are actually a couple or just friends, because they are joking about babies and coming into work together—come on, people! I need to see a kiss soon because my life lacks attention. (Okay, I know it’s not about me…but maybe it is just a little.)

On tonight’s episode, “Black Budget,” Callen and Sam head to Mexico to track down the only employee who managed to escape a professional shooting at the Department of Defense. Meanwhile, the rest of the team works to uncover the motive behind the shooting.

To see if the team can once again save the day, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, Hungry Games, Scorpion, and The Millers.
