Kyle’s Choice

gameofthrones412smallYou really can’t lose with tonight’s amazing lineup on HBO — I love returning comedies Silicon Valley and Veep, and Last Week Tonight is always informative and hilarious. However, the show I’m most excited for is the return of Game of Thrones.

When we last visited Westeros, Jon was trying to negotiate an end to the battle with the Wildling king when Stannis and his army arrived; Cersei brought in a young doctor to try to save the Mountain from dying from the poisoned spear Oberyn pierced him with; Daenerys decided to chain up her dragons after they started eating the villagers; and Bran, Hodor, and his crew visited the Three-Eyed Raven in the forest, who revealed that Bran would not walk again but would fly. Elsewhere, Brienne came across Arya and the Hound and started a fight with the Hound, mortally wounding him as she knocked him off a cliff. The Hound begged Arya to kill him, but she just took his money and left him to die. Later, she boarded a ship, using her “Valar Morghulis” chip to gain passage. And finally, Jaime and Varys helped Tyrion escape before his execution, but on his way out, Tyrion first strangled Shae and then executed his father while he sat on the toilet.

There’s so many characters to keep track of! Tonight we’ll finally see the fallout from Tyrion’s escape and murder of Tywin and see what moves those vying to sit atop the Iron Throne will make next. I’m looking forward to another exciting season!

On tonight’s episode, “The Wars to Come,” Varys struggles to convince Tyrion to think outside the box while discussing a potential occupant of the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, Stannis leans on Jon to secure loyalty from a rival; Daenerys ignores tradition to remain on her progressive path; and Cersei and Jaime try to move on from Tywin’s demise.

Enjoy the return of all the drama tonight on HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Once Upon a Time, American Odyssey, Family Guy, The Last Man on Earth, Mad Men, 2015 MTV Movie Awards, The Royals, Silicon Valley, Veep, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Nurse Jackie.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

Jenny’s Choice

cutthroatkitchen2015smallI know there are a lot of premieres on cable tonight, and I know they’ve got a lot of fans, but I don’t have Showtime or HBO, and I don’t get them elsewhere, so for people like me, I’ve got another recommendation for you. Like Megan, I’m a huge fan of Cutthroat Kitchen. That show is so freakin’ devious, and Alton Brown has way too much fun introducing the sabotages to the contestants. I think some of my favorites are when the chefs lose their tools and dishes and have to be inventive when they cook. I’ve never understood why, when whatever they have to use to mix things in has holes, they don’t cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil—maybe they can’t? I dunno. It seems so obvious. *laugh* Whatever the reason, I love watching it.

On tonight’s episode, “Live and Let Diner,” three chefs find themselves on the other side of the diner counter. Then, Paris is for haters in a French-inspired challenge. Finally, one chef has to make a rum cake in a bottle of rum.

To see what sabotages are thrust upon the chefs tonight, tune in to Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, All-Star Academy, Last Man on Earth, Battle Creek, & Who Do You Think You Are?.
