If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/2/14

I have been freezing ALL DAY. It’s gonna warm up in the next couple of days, but it’s not getting TOO warm—it is December, after all… But this cold weather means it’s a great time to curl up on the couch under a blanket and catch up on TV, so check out what we’re recommending.

girlfriendsguide122smallOne show I was interested in when I first heard about it is Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, which is my pick tonight. The show stars Lisa Edelstein as Abby, a newly single self-help book author, who embarks on the next chapter of her life and finds herself seeking advice from her divorced friends Lyla, played by Janeane Garofalo, and Phoebe, played by Beau Garrett. Necar Zadegan (from Emily Owens, MD & 24), Paul Adelstein (Private Practice), Patrick Heusinger (Royal Pains), J. August Richards (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. & Angel), C. Thomas Howell (Criminal Minds among others), Julianna Guill (Crazy, Stupid, Love), Michael Weaver (The Joe Schmo Show), & Charles Mesure (Desperate Housewives) also star.

It’ll be fun to see Lisa Edelstein in another drama, and I love Paul Adestein (LOL @ the similarities of their last names…), J. August Richards, & C. Thomas Howell, and the premise sounds fun, so I have my fingers crossed it’s something I can enjoy.

On tonight’s episode, “Rule 23: Never Lie to the Kids,” as a famous author and advice expert, a young woman can no longer hide the fact that her marriage is over and her husband is actively dating, so she begins to take the advice of her divorced friends with unexpected results.

Check out the premiere of this new drama tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, The Little Couple, MasterChef Canada, Chicago Fire, Chopped, Forever, & Benched.

agentsofshield122smallMarvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been very intense this season, and I’m not sure who is making it more creepy: Ward, Skye’s father, “The Doctor,” or Whitewall. Maybe it’s a tie. Last week, we watched as Ward kidnapped his brother, Christian, and made him confess to wanting their brother dead, which he recorded. It was a dark scene. Meanwhile, Trip was shot, and Skye’s father came out of the woods to help him—Coulson and Fitz were a little shocked at his appearance, but kept it from Skye for the time being. Overall, the episode ended with them finding a match for the alien city. Hopefully this will lead us to some important findings for SHIELD, especially before Hydra gets there. I’m not sure where this is headed with Ward, but I’m kind of liking seeing him out and about now. How about you?

On tonight’s episode, “…Ye Who Enter Here,” SHIELD discovers the ancient city before Hydra, but uncovering the secrets may require one of Coulson’s team to make the ultimate sacrifice. Meanwhile, May and Skye race to get to Raina before Whitehall takes her.

To see what the team finds in the mysterious city, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef: Junior, Chopped, The Little Couple, Forever, Chicago Fire, New Girl, and The Mindy Project.

theflash122smallTonight is the first half of the big The Flash/Arrow crossover. Last week, the Flash lost his powers when a meta-human, who was struck by lightning during the accelerator explosion, used his ability to suck the energy out of people on Barry. As Barry struggled to regain his speed, William Tockman (aka the Clock King, previously seen on Arrow) held the CCPD station hostage and shot Eddie in the process. The police ultimately gave in to his demands, giving him a helicopter. He took Iris with him as insurance, but Iris used Eddie’s gun to shoot Tockman and get away. Meanwhile, with Wells’s assistance, Barry managed to regain his abilities.

Wells was curiously anxious to have Barry regain his powers, constantly checking his future news reports for any sign of Barry or the Flash. At one point, he even stated “my most important creation is the Flash—Barry Allen must have a future”—so does this mean the explosion wasn’t an accident? And in what future event does the Flash play such a pivotal role? We also saw Wells collect some of Farooq’s blood—is he planning to use this to learn how to take away Barry’s powers at some point in the future? I’m looking forward to seeing how tonight’s crossover between Arrow and The Flash will work—especially as the title implies that these friends will actually be at odds with one another.

On tonight’s episode, “Flash vs. Arrow,” a crossover event that concludes on Arrow begins with Barry teaming with Oliver Queen to stop a meta-human who is using his ability to control people’s emotions to rob banks. Meanwhile, Eddie tries to get a task force to stop the Flash; and Caitlin and Cisco deal with a new team in S.T.A.R. Labs.

Check out part one of the crossover event tonight on The CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Toy Story That Time Forgot, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Forever, Marry Me, About a Boy, MasterChef: Junior, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Supernatural, Sons of Anarchy, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Chrisley Knows Best, Benched, and Kroll Show.
