If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/23/14

We’re getting so close to Thanksgiving now. I’m so excited. My dad is coming up to Kansas from Oklahoma to celebrate with us, and we’re cooking everything (turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn casserole, stuffing—okay, we’re taking a shortcut and doing Stove Top. LOL—salad, and rolls), and it’s just gonna be a fun week. But we have a few days before that happens, so check out our recommendations for what to watch tonight on TV.

csi1123smallLast week’s CSI was all about the Gig Harbor Killer. Detective Shaw’s partner escaped and was recovering in the hospital. I knew immediately when she and Det. Shaw saw one another that there was something off…and it was confirmed when he met with Paul. He’s clearly working with the twins, but why? Is he really a bad guy? Or is Paul holding something over him? Whatever the case…it was creepy and not surprising!

I’m really excited for tonight’s episode specifically because of the guest stars. It’s an Alias reunion, with Greg Grunberg & Merrin Dungey both appearing. Love Greg. It’s been too long since I’ve had him on my TV regularly!

On tonight’s episode, “Road To Recovery,” the CSI team investigates the death of a woman full of alcohol and drugs in a pool at a rehab facility. Greg Grunberg, Merrin Dungey, Marc Blucas, Larry Sullivan, Marielle Jaffe, Chris Browning, Lea Moreno, & Brandon Quinn guest star.

To see why a drug and alcohol-related death at a rehab facility is suspicious, tune in to CBS at 10:30/9:30c. (But who knows, at this point… It could start earlier, could run way over. I always record the show before and record it an hour over, just to be safe. *rolls eyes*)

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Holiday Baking Championship, & Cutthroat Kitchen.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

homeland1123smallI’m not sure why many critics have been harsh on Homeland this season—I have really enjoyed this Brody-free season so far. Last week, Carrie put two and two together and realized that someone must have breached the embassy and tampered with her pills, and that’s the reason she had been acting so crazy. Meanwhile, Saul escaped from his cell, but after he called for backup and realized there was none coming, he contemplated suicide rather than allow himself to be captured again. However, Carrie was in communication with him and talked him out of shooting himself by assuring him the rescue team was there and that she would lead him to them. However, as Saul opened the door to what he thought was his freedom, he found himself face-to-face with fifty Taliban soldiers and realized that Carrie had set him up.

Why didn’t Carrie just let Saul kill himself instead of being re-captured? After all, she was the one who tried to order the car he was in with Haqqani to be bombed! Carrie knows that Haqqani won’t kill Saul—he’s a valuable asset—but she has now betrayed her country (and Saul) to save his life. Can Carrie regain control of herself and stop letting her emotions rule her actions? How will Carrie respond now that she knows it was the ambassador who tried to poison and discredit her? And will she find a way to rescue Saul?!

On tonight’s episode, “There’s Something Else Going On,” Carrie improvises to salvage her mission; the CIA closes in on a leak.

See how Carrie tries to get back on track tonight on Showtime at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, CSI, Once Upon a Time, Resurrection, Mulaney, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bob’s Burgers, The Walking Dead, The Newsroom, The Comeback, and Getting On.
