If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/9/14

We’re counting down the days till Christmas, and I’ve been enjoying all the Food Network Christmas episodes of their shows as I make lists and get ready for the big day (which, in our case, is the 21st, since that’s when my mom, sister, & brother-in-law will be here). We’re also gearing up for my kid’s trip to London on the 27th. So yeah, busy time around here! That means I’m loving settling down on the couch under a blanket and watching all the great TV. To that end, check out our recommendations on what you should be watching tonight.

Jenny’s Choice

groundfloor129smallI’m so happy because the season premiere of Ground Floor on TBS is on tonight, and that’s my pick. We were introduced last season to Brody—a banker who works on one of the top floors of the building—and Jenny—who works maintenance on the…well, the ground floor (basement? *shrug*). They didn’t let that stop them from beginning a relationship, much to the disappointment of “Harvard,” who works with Jenny and fancies himself in love with her. His brilliantly sarcastic boss, Mansfield (played by the fantastic John C. McGinley), tried to persuade Brody that he needed to focus on work, and he thought he’d succeeded in the finale when he promoted Brody and had him moving to China…but at the very last second, Brody chose to go with Jenny to Paris instead…and got fired because of it.

So now that Brody doesn’t have a job with Mansfield anymore, what will happen? From the preview I’ve seen, I have a good idea, but I can’t wait to see how it plays out. I simply adored Skylar Astin & Briga Heelan as Brody & Jenny, and I love John C. McGinley & Mansfield. The rest of the cast is great too, so I have high hopes for season two!

On tonight’s episode, “Unforgiven,” when they return from Paris, Brody has to face the music for abandoning Mansfield, and Jenny has to deal with the fact a spurned Harvard has fired almost everyone on the ground floor. Getting back in Mansfield’s good books will be harder than Brody ever imagined, especially now that the number-smart but people-challenged Lindsay has already taken his place.

To see if Brody can get back into Mansfield’s good graces, tune in to TBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef: Junior, MasterChef Canada, Chopped, Chrisley Knows Best, Forever, & Benched.

Kyle’s Choice

obe Photoshop CS6 (Macintosh)Tonight, after seven seasons, Sons of Anarchy finally comes to an end. Last week was a shocking, bloody, and dramatic episode, where we lost three of the series original characters. Gemma was on the run and knew it was only a matter of time before Jax found her, so she went to her father’s nursing home to say one last goodbye. Elsewhere, the Chinese were threatening Juice in order to make him kill Tully, but since this would be bad for Jax and the club, Juice revealed the plan to Tully, handed him a scalpel, and offered his own life instead. During a commotion, Tully stabbed Juice in the neck and let him bleed out. Meanwhile, Uncer tried to stop Jax from going after Gemma, but when he refused to leave, Jax shot him dead. Once Jax found Gemma, she was already accepting of her fate—she walked out to the garden and told Jax she was ready…and he shot her in the back of the head.

Who will survive tonight’s final ride? Will Jax pay for the mistakes he made against the club while blindly seeking revenge for Tara’s death? What was this club rule he requested be changed—will it involve him falling on the sword in order to save the rest of SAMCRO? What does the future hold for the club?

On tonight’s episode, “Papa’s Goods,” Jax aims to fulfill his father’s legacy in the series finale.

See how the series ends 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, Chasing Life, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, Chrisley Knows Best, and Benched.
