If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/3/14

I’m back after some technical difficulties yesterday with my Internet and satellite. Honestly, if I had a choice where I live, I would no longer deal with the company I’m with, but seeing as I live in the boonies, I’m stuck with this stuff. Anyway, enough about my disdain for my satellite provider… Let’s take a look at what we’re recommending on television tonight.

Megan’s Choice

thevoicelogosmallI don’t remember a season of The Voice that has been quite as full of talented singers and amazing coaches. Honestly, this group of four is the best mix yet in my opinion. Now, we all know that I absolutely ADORE Adam Lavigne (if you haven’t checked out Maroon 5’s newest album, you should—it’s fantastic…), but as much as I love Adam, his choice last week to keep Damian and eliminate Toia Jones was ridiculous. Damian sang a very, very sleepy version of Trisha Yearwood’s “How Do I Live,” while Toia dominated the stage with Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love.” Unfortunately, Pharrell had already used his steal, or I’m sure he’d have stolen Toia back because he was loving that performance. Overall, that was the only moment of last week’s knockout rounds that I didn’t agree with, but it was a big one, so I hope that this week, Adam doesn’t let me down again—and yes, frankly, it is all about me.

On tonight’s episode, “The Knockouts Part 3,” we watch as more talented singers bring it all to the stage and how they put the time of one-on-one coaching from Taylor Swift to use.

To see if Adam redeems himself after his stupidity last week, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Sleepy Hollow, Gotham, 2 Broke Girls, Jane the Virgin, Scorpion, The Blacklist, and NCIS: LA.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice #1

scorpion113smallMy first pick tonight is Scorpion. Last week, the team had to speak to a psychiatrist to make sure they were stable enough for the work they’re doing for the government after making some questionable decisions during their latest case, in which they had to go undercover at a fundraiser/ball in order to get close to a man they believed to be an art thief. Hetty (from NCIS: LA) came on and helped them find some information they needed, and she brought her magical wardrobe to help outfit them for the party. Happy and Toby went in as waiters, Sylvester stayed in the van to help with the electronics, and Paige and Walter went in as a couple attending the event. Walter was too cute when Paige first came out in the beautiful dress she was wearing. He was jealous when their suspect began subtly flirting with and then danced with Paige, and it nearly got them caught. The psychiatrist actually brought up the fact that he was jealous. In the end, they were declared fit to continue their work, and Walter’s support of his team and their love for him is basically what made her decision for her.

I love that we saw some hints that Walter has feelings for Paige. Hopefully we’ll continue to see a little bit of that as the season goes on.

On tonight’s episode, “Father’s Day,” a case gets personal for Team Scorpion when three convicts break out of prison and one of them is a brilliant hacker who was forced to help the others steal billions online. Meanwhile, Paige must manage Ralph’s expectations when his father returns. Brendan Hines (Suits, Lie to Me) guest stars.

See how personal it gets tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

Kyle’s Choice

janethevirgin113smallJane the Virgin continues to be a really fun show. I’m really enjoying the soapy twists and turns, all of which are made even better by the witty voice-over and on-screen text. Last week, Jane decided to lose her virginity with Michael but felt guilty during church and blurted her plan to her mother and grandmother–while Alba was disappointed, Xiomara was excited for her daughter. Elsewhere, Michael investigated Roman’s murder. While his partner suspected Petra was involved, Michael had a vested interest in keeping Petra and Rafael together, so he insisted she was innocent. Jane also had suspicions that Petra was hiding something and did some investigating of her own. Meanwhile, Rogelio arranged to run into his daughter so he could finally meet her, and when they did come face-to-face, Jane was star-struck. In the end, after being interrupted by many “divine signs,” Jane decided to wait to have sex with Michael but pushed up her wedding to the following week. However, she also found herself worrying about suppressing new feelings for Rafael.

It was hilarious seeing Alba just as star-struck over Rogelio as Jane was (if not more-so). I look forward to seeing Jane’s reaction when she finds out the truth about her father. Will that happen before the wedding so that he can walk her down the aisle? Will the wedding actually happen, or will Jane’s feelings for Rafael cause a change in plans?

On tonight’s episode, “Chapter Four,” Jane experiences guilt concerning her feelings for Rafael, and she admits this to Michael. Meanwhile, an unwelcome visitor from Petra and Rafael’s past surfaces; and Rogelio asks Xo to allow him to be involved in Jane’s wedding.

See Michael’s reaction tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Millers, Scorpion, The Blacklist, Gotham, Sleepy Hollow, and Mike Tyson Mysteries.

Jenny’s Choice #2

ncisla113smallMy second pick tonight should come as no surprise. Last week’s NCIS: LA was a lot of fun. Sam and Callen had to travel to Mexico to track down the only employee who escaped when bad guys broke into one of the branches of the Department of Defense. Of course, we found out at the end that he only escaped because he was the man behind it all… But watching Callen & Sam in Mexico was great, from thinking they were getting robbed by some bad guys with guns (and well, actually getting their guns, car, and badges taken by the same men, who turned out to be undercover Feds there working on a big drug case), trying to find the man they were looking for at a strip club/house of prostitution), outrunning guys who were trying to kill them, and tap dancing around the young women whose house they found him at. Watching them get flirted with and propositioned was great. Callen really showed off a humorous side to his personality again this week. I love it.

Tonight’s episode looks like it will be a fun one. Chris O’Donnell directed, and an interview with him that I read said it was a lot of fun to shoot because there’s a huge fight scene. So I’m looking forward to it. Not sure we’ll get much more Densi tonight than we got last week, but hopefully we’ll get a little bit more.

On tonight’s episode, “SEAL Hunter,” when Sam is arrested for murdering a woman, Callen and Granger work to clear his name. Meanwhile, Kensi and Deeks discover a link between the victim and a student from Sam’s past. Mixed martial artist and former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva guest stars.

Find out how the team proves Sam’s innocence tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 2 Broke Girls, Dancing with the Stars, The Millers, & Mystery Diners.
