If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/20/14

It’s just one week until Thanksgiving—have you made your Black Friday shopping list yet? This guy has… While there are only a couple Blu-rays on my list, I fully expect to end up with way more than that by the time all is said and done! Tonight, ABC’s TGIT lineup has their Fall finales, and many other shows will soon join them in winding down until the new year, but there’s still plenty of shows on TV tonight, and we’ve got a couple of recommendations to help you decide what to watch.

Kyle’s Choice

gracepoint1120smallLast week Gracepoint finally diverged a bit from Broadchurch, the original UK series it is a remake of, and with just three episodes left, it was about time! The mystery of Danny’s killer still remains unsolved, but the town’s attention was quickly diverted to another devastating event—the disappearance of Tom Miller. Beth’s psychic told her that Tom was bleeding somewhere. While this initially gave some relief that he may still be alive, volunteer search parties combed the woods but came up with nothing. Meanwhile, Carver was being crucified for his poor detective work in the papers, and things got worse for him when his daughter came to visit and discovered his illness. Elsewhere, a mysterious hiker came out of the woods, demanding food before he would talk, but when shown pictures of Tom, he creepily offered over and over again how handsome he was. Could he be Danny’s killer?

Is Tom’s disappearance the result of something sinister, or is he just off hiding and/or accidentally hurt somewhere? And is this even related to Danny’s disappearance/death? Speaking of Danny, there are still so many suspects among the various strange individuals of Gracepoint—who is telling the truth, who is the murderer, and what was their motive? I feel a lot more invested in this series now that it seems to have finally gone off in its own direction (somewhat). I look forward to seeing how these final 3 episodes play out!

On tonight’s episode, “Episode 8,” trying to adapt to life without Danny, members of the Solano family head back to work and school, while police bring in Susan Wright for questioning after the local paper digs up some unsettling news about her.

Find out what unsettling news is learned about Susan tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The McCarthys, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Bad Judge, A to Z, Parenthood, Bones, Covert Affairs, and Newsreaders.

Jenny’s Choice #1

bones1120smallBones is my first pick tonight. Last week started with a big laugh when two fathers were with their kids at the playground and tried to “unstick” a merry-go-round, only to have a decomposing head fly out from underneath it and land in a toy truck. Those poor kids! LOL And we learned more about Aubrey when he learned the victim worked at a hedge fund company—his dad had been arrested when Aubrey was young and then ran off before his trial started, leaving Aubrey and his mom alone and with money problems. In the end, the killer wasn’t a surprise, although I was glad they were able to arrest the boss for his crimes as well. And Booth and Brennan argued over Christine’s use of “jackass,” and I LOVED the amusement Booth got when, after he’d agreed to just chill about it, Christine called Brennan that as she said good night. It reminded me of several conversations my husband & I have had in the past. Ahhh, parenthood!

Tonight is a big week for the show. Sweets died earlier this season, just after we learned that he & Daisy were soon to become parents…and tonight, the Jeffersonian team adds another member as Daisy has the baby. Exciting on the one hand, but definitely bittersweet!

On tonight’s episode, “The Puzzler in the Pit,” after a famous crossword puzzle master is found in an urban fracking site, the Jeffersonian team investigates puzzle champ’s fellow players in order to track down the killer. After discovering that the victim was suffering from a mental illness when he died, the team realizes the case is much more complicated than it seemed. Meanwhile, a very pregnant Daisy seeks comfort from her doula, Valentina (guest star Mindy Cohn), and the newest member of the Jeffersonian family arrives.

Meet Daisy & Sweets’s new baby tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

Jenny’s Choice #2

tbbt1120smallLast week’s The Big Bang Theory was great, as always. Leonard made the decision to get his deviated septum fixed, which meant surgery. When Sheldon found out, he freaked, trying to convince Leonard that he didn’t need to have the elective surgery done. He went as far as filling up a white board with different scenarios of how Leonard could die—such as natural disasters, etc. Hysterical. And when the surgery got pushed up, Amy distracted Sheldon while Penny took Leonard to the hospital. Of course Sheldon found out about it and made Amy take him to the hospital…and then the power flickered. Sheldon was sure Leonard was going to die, so he tried to storm the OR, only to run into the glass door, knocking him to the floor. It was funny at the end because both Sheldon & Leonard had their noses bandaged.

On tonight’s episode, “The Champagne Reflection,” Sheldon says a tearful goodbye to “Fun with Flags.” Also, Leonard, Howard and Raj look for something significant in a dead professor’s research, and Bernadette is shocked to learn her co-workers’ true feelings from Penny.

To see why Sheldon has to say goodbye to one of his favorite games, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

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