If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/18/14

It started snowing here on Sunday, and it honestly has been snowing on and off since, but thankfully it’s mild out. The kids have been having fun with all the snow because it’s perfect for packing and making a snowman. It’s kind of bittersweet because Chloe, who is 9 now, has started to argue about wearing snow pants and how “uncool” they are. *sigh* My baby girl is growing up. That said, she has to wear them! While I hang the wet outdoor clothes up to dry and tuck my little snow bunnies into bed let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

themindyproject1118smallThe Mindy Project is still making me laugh week after week, and in a world of stress and craziness, that’s exactly what we all need. Last week, we watched as Danny freaked out over Mindy downloading movies illegally on his computer, because he said it’s stealing. This is part of the reason I love this show, because they allow these two to have small little disagreements that normal couples do, which makes them anything but boring. We also met Danny’s mom, Annette, who Mindy took out for shopping trip like most girlfriends do with the possible future mother-in-law. It was on that shopping trip that Mindy was faced with a moral dilemma when she saw Annette shoplifting, then later giving the stolen bomber jacket to Danny. Mindy confronted Annette, but she got upset, and so did Danny…until the ink exploded in his jacket, making him realize that Mindy was being honest. He tried to make her return the jacket to the store but then realized that she could face jail time, so they all ran—hilarious. Seriously, though, kids… Don’t steal! Overall, it was an amusing episode all around, and I am still loving every minute.

On tonight’s episode, “Diary of a Mad Indian Woman,” Mindy is forced to act as a mentor to the residents at the hospital, and Danny gets himself into trouble when he finds, and can’t help but read, Mindy’s diary.

To see how much trouble Danny is in, tune in to FOX at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: NOLA, Forever, The Voice, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, Person of Interest, Chopped, and MasterChef: Junior.

ncis1118smallLast week’s NCIS was both funny and heartbreaking. A retired Master Sergeant was murdered, and during the course of the investigation, they found a set of dog tags for a former member of his squad…who it turned out had died during the Vietnam War. When they went to find his body the next day (the soldier who had died during the war, not the old soldier who’d died in present time…), his body was gone. They eventually tracked it to a young boy (now a man) who the soldier had helped after his parents had been killed by the bad guys. He’d been following the soldier to watch over him, and when the soldier was killed, he dragged the soldier away to bury the body and give him the respect he felt the soldier deserved.

The funny part came when Bishop learned that Gibbs had scored her very high (especially compared to Tony & McGee) on her performance review. Until Ducky & Jimmy told her that the lower the score, the better the agent was doing, Bishop thought she’d done well. So she began to fret about it. In the end, she realized Gibbs had been going easy on her, not just for the performance review, but on the job itself. She confronted him, and he talked about losing agents—first Kate, then Ziva—and how he’d decided to take a different approach. She told him to knock it off, so he agreed and ordered her to quit sitting on the floor…which I kind of hate because I love that she’s that young agent who is still expressing her individuality like that.

On tonight’s episode, “Semper Fortis,” while the NCIS team investigates the cause of a hit-and-run accident that resulted in the death of a Petty Officer, Gibbs searches for a way to clear a Navy Hospital Corpsman, who has served two medical tours in Afghanistan, after she’s indicted for illegally providing medical aid to the victims of the crash, even though the surviving victims swear by her life-saving techniques. Salli Richardson-Whitfield & Lou Ferrigno Jr. guest star.

See if Gibbs and team can clear the soldier tonight on CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, Chicago Fire, 19 Kids & Counting, MasterChef Canada, NCIS: NOLA, Chopped, Forever, Person of Interest, Restaurant Redemption, Chrisley Knows Best, & Benched.

sonsofanarchy1118smallWe are down to the final 3 episodes of Sons of Anarchy, and things are really heating up. The Sons had a run-in with the rednecks who, after some “persuading,” offered up that Leland was on his way to kill Eglee. But when Eglee got to the ICU with his silenced gun, Uncer was waiting and took him out. Elsewhere, the Sons tricked Moses into an ambush, where Jax exacted the same torture and execution on him as Moses had performed on Bobby. Meanwhile, Tully gave Juice some prison love, while Venus tried to break up with Tig, saying their love could never be public. And throughout the episode, Abel was acting out and cutting himself at school, trying to frame Gemma for it. The episode ended with Abel asking Jax if Grandma killed Mommy so that he could now be with his first mommy (Wendy).

That final scene is what I’ve been waiting for all season—for Jax to finally find out the truth about what Gemma did. I can’t wait to see how this plays out and what he does to his mother. Not only did Gemma kill Tara, but she set off the whole series of events that followed due to Jax seeking revenge on the wrong people. In his quest for vengeance, Jax has led the club down a bad path, which also caused Bobby’s death.

On tonight’s episode, “Suits of Woe,” as the whole of the Sons of Anarchy organization bears down on the outlaw motorcycle club’s California-based Redwood Original chapter, Jax comes face to face with an extremely unpleasant reality.

Check it out tonight to see if Jax reins down hell on Gemma tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Forever, Marry Me, About a Boy, MasterChef: Junior, New Girl, The Mindy Project, The Flash, Supernatural, Chrisley Knows Best, Benched, Awkward, Faking It, and Happyland.
