If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/23/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

kotn2015smallTonight is the third season premiere of King of the Nerds, which makes me so happy. So many “reality” shows feature beautiful, hip, popular people, but it’s about time that the smart, nerdy, dorky, sometimes cute but often weird people get a chance to shine. Both of the previous seasons, there’s been people I really liked and people I really didn’t, but I’ve been very happy (season 1) and okay (season 2) with who won, so I’m hoping this season will be no exception. Plus, it’s hosted by uber-nerds Curtis Armtstrong & Robert Carradine, so what could be better or funnier?

On tonight’s episode, “Judgment Day,” in the season three premiere, 12 new nerds arrive at Nerdvana to compete for $100,000. The Nerds must create Rube Goldberg-type devices and go deep into the worlds of steampunk and anime. When the first two Nerds face elimination, only Nerdzilla can save them.

Meet the new Nerds tonight on TBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing 12 Monkeys, Grimm, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

glee123smallThis final season of Glee has been really shaping up to be a good one. Last week, Kurt and Rachel struggled with being “co”-directors—each wanted to run things their own way. So for the task of the week, the four Glee Club members (and a few of the alumni who happened to still be hanging around) had to do mashups of songs from both Alanis Morissette’s “Jagged Little Pill” and Carole King’s “Tapestry.” Meanwhile, Sue and the Glee Club members were very protective of Becky—they were worried that her handsome new boyfriend was planning to take advantage of her due to her disability.

I found Becky’s uber-bitchy attitude so off-putting last week that I wondered why the club even wanted to help her. However, despite that, I have been really impressed with the way the series has turned itself around this season—the musical performances and song choices have been solid and the story lines interesting. I also really appreciate how the show has been fully accepting, acknowledging, and finding humor its prior faults and occasional ridiculousness and hand waving. The series is fun to watch again, and I hope they can keep this going for the rest of this short final season. New Directions now needs to focus on recruiting some more Glee Club members so they can compete in Sectionals!

On tonight’s episode, “The Hurt Locker, Part One,” Rachel proposes a deal with Will that will improve her squad’s chances at the invitational, while Sue continues to meddle by hypnotizing Sam and coercing him into coming on to Rachel in hopes of throwing her off her game.

See if Will accepts Rachel’s deal tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grimm, King of the Nerds, 12 Monkeys, Helix, Banshee, and Newsreaders.

Megan’s Choice

hartofdixie123smallHart of Dixie has definitely started the season off with plenty of interesting story lines. First, we have Lemon pretending to be engaged to get her grandmother’s money. Then we have Brick lying about who he’s dating, as well as George and Lavon fighting over loving Lemon. And finally we have the biggest one: Zoe is pregnant with Wade’s baby. I was so excited for the last story line because I love these two together and am very happy that they are headed towards being a couple full-time. The problem will be if Wade can get over the shock and make Zoe let him help her.

On tonight’s episode, “The Very Good Bagel,” after weeks of going back and forth with their relationship problems, Zoe and Wade finally start making progress. Lemon reminisces about her high school days and enlists Annabeth and Crickett to crash George’s parents’ lake house. While rescuing the girls from their fun night, George and Lavon make drastic decisions regarding their love lives.

To see what fun unfolds in Bluebell, tune in to the CW at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm, Constantine, Glee, and 12 Monkeys.
