If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/6/14

Thanksgiving is still three weeks away, but the Christmas decorations and products are already flooding the store shelves, and the Hallmark Channel has been airing a different Christmas-themed made-for-TV movie every night! It seems like the holiday season arrives earlier and earlier every year! We’ve got some suggestions for some non-holiday fare for you to check out on TV tonight.

atoz116smallA to Z may be a dead show walking now, but I am still finding it charming, and it will be sad to see it go. Last week, Andrew and Zelda had decided to abandon their annual Halloween traditions with their best friends. However, this didn’t sit well with Stu and Stephanie, who tried to combine their annual themes into one party, which meant trying to mesh Laverne and Shirley with the Ghostbusters! Needless to say, this did not end well.

While the show has been canceled, NBC has agreed to produce all 13 episodes it originally ordered. So, hopefully, the creators take this opportunity to write to a satisfying ending. After all, the premise of the series is that it chronicles the 8+ month period of time that Andrew and Zelda dated, so there was already this closed period of time in which the series would take place. I am really hoping that in episode 13, we find out what happens at the end of that dating period.

On tonight’s episode, “F Is for Fight, Fight, Fight!” Andrew tries to prove his manliness after failing to defend Zelda in a rough situation outside a bar. Meanwhile, Zelda takes on a ruggedly handsome farmer as a client at her law firm.

Find out if Andrew’s able to man up tonight on NBC at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The McCarthys, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Bad Judge, Parenthood, Bones, Gracepoint, White Collar, Covert Affairs, and Newsreaders.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

bones116smallLast week’s Bones was a lot of fun, as I’d guessed it would be. It was fun to see Aubrey trying to be harsh on Hodgins, but even that was half-assed, and Booth stuck up well for him, knowing he wouldn’t have killed the woman, even though he didn’t like her. The funniest—and sweetest and best—part to me, I think, was the very end, when Brennan finally got to give her speech, and she opened with the joke that Booth was sure was going to fall flat. Instead, it went over like gangbusters—which wasn’t surprising, given the science crowd…—and the joke Booth thought was funny—which I LOVED. LOL—died a slow, awkward death as he was the only one clapping. It was great. And yay! Wendell’s doing okay. He’s in remission and off the marijuana, which meant he could come back to work, although he’s worried because a friend of his from the drug trial died suddenly after having been well for a while. I’ll just have to keep my fingers crossed that Wendell doesn’t follow in his footsteps.

On tonight’s episode, “The Lost Love in the Foreign Land,” the Jeffersonian team investigates the murder of an immigrant maid whose remains were found on the side of the road. Meanwhile, amidst talks of marriage between Cam and “squintern” Arastoo, tensions rise between Brennan and Cam as Arastoo prepares his dissertation for Brennan’s approval. Phyllis Logan (Downton Abbey) guest stars.

See if Brennan and Cam can work through their differences to solve the case tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, The McCarthys, Beat Bobby Flay, Elementary, & Pawnography.

Megan’s Choice

greysanatomy116smallThursday has easily become a Shonda Rhimes world over at ABC, and I for one am not complaining—tonight I’m going to suggest you watch the first and my favorite of the magic trio, Grey’s Anatomy. I know I haven’t picked this for a while, and mostly it’s because last season, I had a love-hate relationship with this show. On one hand, it was exciting, but on the other, I felt like it had stumbled away from the normal delicious drama that I had come to love. That is not the case anymore. This season has been an emotional rollercoaster and full of fantastic medical cases as well. Let’s talk about the heartbreaking moment from the last episode, where we watched Callie and Arizona at counseling, when Callie finally chose herself over her relationship with Arizona. I was crying and cheering at the same time because all along, Callie has deserved more, and I am so happy she has finally realized this. What about you? Do you think Callie made the right choice?

On tonight’s episode, “Don’t Let’s Start,” Owen becomes invested in a patient when he realizes she may have served in the military, April’s mother pays her daughter a visit and bonds with Jackson, and Derek plans a family dinner. Meanwhile, a patient’s diagnosis causes Bailey to reconsider her own health issues, and Dr. Herman drops a bombshell on Arizona.

To see how our favorite doctors deal this week, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, Food Truck Face Off, The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Bones, The Vampire Diaries, Mom, The McCarthys, and A to Z.

    I still haven’t figured out how anyone can be happy with Bones so far this season. There has been almost NO BOOTH AND BRENNAN! There has been next to NO romance between the two, and that is what many of us have always wanted to see. So far in tonight’s episode we have opened with a bedroom scene with Cam and Arastoo, when what we want is that type of scene with Booth and Brennan! We are now over 30 minutes into the episode, and I have not seen a single B&B scene other than at the crime scene! This is no longer the show that I have loved for so long. Without B&B, Bones is dead. They need to wake up!!!! GIVE US BOOTH AND BRENNAN!!!!!!!!!

      I agree with Megan…and you, Diana. Do I want more romantic B&B? Yeah, of course. I always do. But I’m also pretty happy with the season. I love the rest of the cast as much as I love B&B, so… *shrug*

  2. Megan says:

    We may not be getting an overwhelming amount of Booth and Brennan but I’m happy with this season so far. I don’t watch simply for them, I watch for the whole cast and the cases of the week. Do I love B & B scenes? Of course, but I also love all the other ones too.
