If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/31/15

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

rrkidscookoffsmallI know the Remote posts have been hit or miss lately. There’s not been a lot on that we wanted to recommend that we haven’t been recommending way too often. *laugh* Thankfully, the new season starts soon! Until then, I’m totally telling you that you should watch tonight’s new episode of Rachael Ray’s Kids Cook-Off.

Normally, it’s Rachael and Guy Fieri, each mentoring a team of kid chefs, but this season, it’s Rachael alone, along with a different guest mentor/judge each week. I was impressed with the kids this season. I didn’t see any who immediately grated on my nerves as being too cocky or snotty like I’ve seen in the past. Another new twist this season is that instead of all the kids staying for the whole competition and gaining points throughout via cooking challenges, with the winner being the one with the most points at the end, this season, one kid chef is going home each week, just like on most regular cooking competition shows. So that should be interesting to see how the kids (and their parents!) handle it!

On tonight’s episode, “Fast Food Feud,” the seven chefs must put their own spin on a fast food classic. Food critic and Internet video star Daymon Patterson joins Rachael to judge the results.

See who excels and who goes home tonight on Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Penn & Teller: Fool Us,So You Think You Can Dance, & Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/3/13

The countdown has begun—not only to Christmas, but to the fall finales of all our favorites. Most shows are wrapping up this week (or have wrapped up already) for the year, not to return until January. There’s still a lot on, though, so I’ve got plenty to keep me company. Here’s what not only I recommend, but everyone else, as well. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

brooklyn99123smallThere were so many great new comedies this year, but one of my favorites has to be FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The show’s Thanksgiving episode was cute. Amy wanted to host dinner for the entire squad, but it kind of turned out to be a disaster. She can’t cook (the description of using baking soda instead of salt was hysterical), so everyone ended up throwing the food into the toilet (thereby backing it up), including the whole turkey. *laugh* Meanwhile, Jake tried everything to get out of going, but when they did end up having dinner together at the precinct, even he had a good time. The only part I didn’t like was the stuff with Terry being so out of control about being hungry and having to EAT RIGHT THEN. It got old pretty quickly. The rest, though, was great. One of my favorite parts was Gina giving Capt. Holt a copy of Amy’s “speech,” hoping to embarrass her, but it turned out to be a good thing for Amy, and Gina admitted that it was good, even though that wasn’t what she wanted.

I really adore this show and I look forward to it each and every week. It’s kind of funny because we jump from the Thanksgiving episode from Nov. 26 to the Christmas episode tonight, Dec. 3. Fun! Unfortunately, that means this is the last episode for a month. Boo!

On tonight’s episode, “Christmas,” Captain Holt receives death threats and Jake is put in charge of his security, a job he enjoys and abuses as much as he can. Meanwhile, Amy attempts to get the precinct to take a Christmas photo for Holt, but a lack of enthusiasm and Rosa’s refusal to smile defeats her efforts. Also, Sergeant Terry Jeffords gets his mojo back.

See what lengths Jake will go to in order to keep Captain Holt safe tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Goldbergs, Trophy Wife, Marshal Law: Texas, & Chicago Fire.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/22/13

It’s been a rollercoaster of a month around here, with everyone taking turns at this wicked virus going around, but it looks like we are all on the mend. *knock on wood* While I drink my Vitamin C drink and fight off the last of these germs, let’s see what’s on TV tonight.

Megan’s Choice

ncisla1022smallNCIS: LA has been keeping me on pins and needles every episode so far this season! Last week, we watched as Callen found out that a man that was apparently his father had been kidnapped. Much to Hetty’s dismay, Callen jumped into the investigation and found out that the kidnapper was Vasile Comescu, making it extremely personal. Callen took things into his own hands and took Vasile down, but his “father” was killed in the process. We then learned that the man was not Callen’s father, but had been watching Callen at the request of Callen’s actual father. I was really entranced by the emotions that Callen was bringing across in this episode, and I even teared up a few times. That episode made me wonder if we’re actually going to find out more about Callen this season and possibly even meet his dad for real.

On tonight’s episode, “Unwritten Rule,” Nell joins the team in the field when a kidnapper demands Navy intelligence; Deeks unknowingly breaks one of Hetty’s rules.

To see how much trouble Deeks has gotten himself into, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NCIS, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Voice, The Goldbergs, Dads, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Ravenswood, The Originals, Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars, Person of Interest, and Chicago Fire.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/4/13

The summer season is off to a great start. It’s a busy week for TV, but here at home, things have slowed down a lot because my kid’s out of school. That also makes it a long day for me, which means the busy TV is great. 😉 So let’s see what we’re all recommending tonight.

Jenny’s Choice #1

americasgottalent2013smallTonight is the eighth season premiere of America’s Got Talent, and it’s gonna be a little different. Sharon Osbourne left the show after last season, and this season, it’ll be Howard Stern & Howie Mandel joined by former Spice Girl Mel B and supermodel TV host Heidi Klum at the judges’ table, with Nick Cannon returning as host. I wasn’t thrilled with the dog act winning last season, although they were good. But the show is still quite enjoyable to watch. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Premiere,” new judges Heidi Klum and Mel B join veteran judges Howard Stern and Howie Mandel to begin the audition process for season eight. Auditions kick off with some of the most odd, yet extraordinary participants the show has come across in recent memory.

See the 2-hour premiere tonight on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Counting Cars, Total Blackout, Chopped, Exit, & The Little Couple.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/23/13

After a dramatic episode of Bones last night, my nerves are absolutely raw. Couple that with spending hundreds of dollars on clothes & shoes for my sister’s wedding at the end of May, and I’m reading to relax with some great television tonight, so let’s see what’s on, shall we? 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

ncis423smallThis season of NCIS has been an emotional one. The last episode was no different. A Navy reservist came home to find blood, a ransacked house, and a missing husband. I figured out before they did that the husband’s disappearance was a setup. He’d arranged for it so he could get away with money he’d stolen, and he killed the man who’d helped him in the process. When the wife confronted her husband, my heart broke. She was so angry and so hurt, and it showed. On the Ziva story, Tony found out that McGee has been helping her track Ilan Bodner, the man responsible for her father’s and Director Vance’s wife’s death. Ziva finally went to Gibbs to tell him everything she’d been doing, said she’d tracked Bodner to somewhere in Europe. In the end, he told her to take Tony and go find them. That’s against the CIA’s directive, but none of them, including Vance, care. It’ll be interesting to see if Tony & Ziva grow closer and if they find Bodner this week…

On tonight’s episode, “Berlin,” while the NCIS team investigates the murder of a Mossad officer in Virginia, Tony and Ziva depart for Berlin as they track her father’s killer. Oded Fehr, Alan Dale, & Marina Sirtis (Orli Elbaz, the new Massad Director) guest star.

To see if Tony and Ziva can find their man, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, 19 Kids & Counting, Counting Cars, NCIS: LA, Who Gets the Last Laugh, & Body of Proof.
