If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/26/12

Did you guys have a good weekend? Mine wasn’t too bad, although I didn’t get much sleep, so I know my Monday is going to crawl. It’s a pretty slow night with CBS not airing new episodes and stuff, but there are some great things on, so check out what we think you should be watching!

The highlights of last week’s Castle episode for me were two things: One was Martha trying to bury the hatchet with a theater critic who had given her a scathing review years before. When she had the woman over for dinner, it…did not go well. lol Martha ended up telling her off, and the two women parted ways again as the woman stormed off in a huff. Then at the end of the episode, it turned out Martha had taken Castle’s advice about making her an offer she couldn’t refuse – and now the critic is going to come see Martha’s acting studio and give a write up in her column in exchange for Castle reading her book and giving it to his agent. *laugh* He was not happy. The other highlight was the banter back and forth between Ryan and Espisito. Newly married Ryan thought for sure it was his wedding ring that was keeping women from noticing him or flirting with him. Espisito pointed out that it wasn’t the ring itself but the obvious happiness Ryan felt because of his wife and marriage. He proved that by wearing Ryan’s ring when they had to go question someone at a strip club for the case and the stripper still flirted with him instead of Ryan. (And the best part of the episode was Ryan not wanting Castle to go with them because he knew the women would be all about Richard Castle if he were there. lol) And then…we got the preview for this week’s episode, and it nearly sent me into a tizzy. I cannot WAIT.

On tonight’s episode, “47 Seconds,” when a bomb explodes at a protest rally, killing five people, Castle & Beckett realize the key to solving the case is to reconstruct the 47 seconds prior to the explosion. Using video and witness accounts, they uncover the shocking truth about who planted the bomb. Christine Woods (Perfect Couples) & Tim Guinee (The Good Wife) guest star.

Don’t miss it tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/19/12

It’s interesting what you can learn when you watch shows like Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy with your family. We watched the episode from a couple of weeks ago, where Larry went to Washington D.C. That led to discussions about 9/11 and about the passengers on the plane that went down in the middle of the field, and then we talked about the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. It was just really an interesting few minutes and made me realize why I like that show. It’s silly a lot of times, but it’s spurned a lot of interesting conversations for our family. Do you have any shows like that? Speaking of shows…some of my favorites are on tonight, so read on to see what we think you should be watching.

I love when we get new episodes of Castle. The episode three weeks ago where the victims were dressed like fairytale characters was great. When it turned out to be the last “victim” that was the killer, I was actually surprised, and that doesn’t happen a ton for me. I love that they figured it out because the bow was tied wrong on her outfit as she supposedly lay in bed after the killer got to her. Of course, the best part of the episode was at the end, when Castle and Beckett sat with Alexis and watched Martha’s one-woman play about being Rick Castle’s mother…and Beckett slipped her hand into Castle’s. I swear, shippers’ hearts must have been fluttering over the entire viewing audience. I know mine was!

Our favorite non-couple couple is growing closer and closer throughout this season. There’s still a lot up in the air for them, though. So many secrets… Will they be strong enough to survive Kate admitting she heard Castle’s proclamation of love? Will Castle’s deception that he is continuing to look into her mother’s case, meeting with people who know about it in secret, make her run because she can’t trust him? I swear, it’s driving me crazy with worry. Hopefully the writers won’t let us down! I can’t handle another season finale that has them driven apart like we’ve gotten up til now!

On tonight’s episode, “A Dance with Death,” when Odette Morton, a contestant on the hit competition show “A Night of Dance” is found murdered in her dressing room, Castle and Beckett must navigate the case’s many twists and twirls without stepping on each other’s toes. But as they delve into Odette’s past, they discover that this reality starlet was harboring a shocking secret that may have led to her death. (Obviously this is a play on Dancing with the Stars, which premieres just before this episode! lol) Adam Harrington (The Secret Circle, Whistler, Show Me Yours), Lauralee Bell (The Young and the Restless), Erin Chambers (General Hospital), & Tim Ransom guest star.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/5/12

It’s the Monday before March break for my daughter, so I am going to relax and use this week to prepare myself for having her home to amuse for a week! Tonight, I’m just going to sit back and watch some of the great new TV that’s on. Let’s see what we should all be watching.

Well, the time has come for the battle rounds on The Voice to begin, and I am so excited – yet nervous. I have so many favorites that I know this is going to be a blood bath. My favorites are: Pip (Team Adam), Tony Lucca (Team Adam), Lex Land (Team Blake), James Massone (Team Cee Lo), and Lindsey Pavao (Team Christina). This season has so many talented contestants that it’s going to be painful to watch them go.

On tonight’s episode, the battle rounds begin and the coaches enlist the help of music industry professionals to offer their knowledge and skill as advisers. Christina teams up with Jewel and Lionel Richie; Adam Levine with Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke; Cee Lo Green with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds and Ne-Yo; and Blake Shelton with Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert. In this phase, the coaches pit two of their own team members against each other in a dueling duet. After the vocal face-off, each coach must choose which vocalist from their team is going home and which is staying for the live shows.

To see if the judges are smart and keep my favorites, tune in to NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Voice @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Alcatraz and Smash.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/30/12

It’s the start of a new work week for most people. But it also means some great new television, so that kind of balances the bad with the good. 😉 On a fantastic note…my husband got called early last week about an interview mid-week. He went to the interview at 9:00 and was there for just over an hour. At 1:30 that afternoon, they called and offered him the job. He starts on the 9th of February, and it’s just over double what he is making now, which is fantastic! After my job got downsized, we weren’t sure what was going to happen—moving in with his parents or my mom, losing our cable, and giving up at least 2 of our 3 cats were brought up—but now, it means we can stay where we are and any income I can bring in will just be that much better. Thank you to all the thoughts & prayers we’ve received over the last month and a half! Now, let’s see what’s on tonight!

Man, I am loving Lost Girl. We’ve only had two episodes, but it’s seriously making me want more and more and more of it! I love Bo and Kenzi (who is freakin hilarious), and damn, Dyson is sexy. lol How hot was the sex scene at the end of last week’s episode? The heat rolling off the two of them was crazy good. The rest of the episode was great, as well. The Will o’ Wisp and his son were kind of sad, because the son didn’t think his dad wanted him, but the fae didn’t even realize he had a son. It all seemed to work out in the end, although what Will and Connell were going to do, I don’t know. I think I’ll just pretend that everything was perfect in their world. 😉

On tonight’s episode, “Sorority,” Bo and Kenzi open a private investigation office. Their first job is to find a missing student at a local college. Kenzi goes undercover in the college, while Bo joins campus security to uncover what happened. Bo and Dyson’s relationship goes on the rocks, and another species of Fae is revealed.

J.J. Abrams’ Newest Hit – Alcatraz

Alcatraz is one of the new shows featured on Fox in recent weeks, and it has come with a bit of fanfare and hype. The latest entry from critically acclaimed director J.J. Abrams (Alias) is similar to what he put out with Lost and Fringe, but it brings enough to the table to be interesting to people who aren’t die-hard science fiction fans. Regardless of whether you are on Direct TV NY, on cable, or some other type of television provider, you should have access to the show, since its on a major network and it is in a prime TV spot.
