If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/13/12

Mondays are always a drag, because they mean the start of the work week (well, except for my dad, who celebrates his first week of being retired today by heading off to Florida). However, there’s tons of great TV on tonight to look forward to at the end of the work day. Read on to see some of the shows we recommend you tune in to tonight!

I can’t wait for tonight’s new episode of Smash! I had originally watched the pilot weeks ago, so it will be nice to finally get a new episode. Last week, we saw the beginnings of Marilyn: The Musical—from the initial songs, to the hiring of the director and the start of the cast auditions. Will it be Karen or Ivy who is cast as Marilyn? I like the theory posed by @TVKel on Twitter, that they could both play the part—Karen as Norma Jean and Ivy as Marilyn. The music on this show is great and well integrated into the story. Watching last week’s train wreck of a Glee episode (the Spanish teacher one) showed me just how much I really welcome and appreciate this show and want it to fill that space that Glee once was.

In tonight’s episode, “The Callback,” Derek makes the audition process rigorous for Karen and Ivy. Elsewhere, Eileen looks for financial backing, and Julia and Frank hit bureaucratic obstacles with their international adoption plans.

Find out if we learn who gets the part tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Smash @ Clicker.

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.

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

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/23/12

This weekend was kind of odd for me… My sleep schedule is screwy, so I’ve been taking long naps during the day (sleeping, but since it’s daytime, I’m calling it naps. lol), and have been up at night. I’m ok doing that for a while, but man, I think it’s catching up with me. My eyes feel like sandpaper. My kid has a science project he’s working on, but it calls for a soluble starch. Now, we looked all over, and as best we could figure out, cornstarch should have worked. We heated it like we read we’d need to, but then when he added the iodine solution to it trying to get a reaction, it never changed color. So…back to the drawing board—and to his science teacher. We’re hoping she knows what she’s doing enough to help the kid figure out what he should be using. Any scientists out there want to chime in? LOL Anyway, it’s a slower week this week, but there is some FABULOUS stuff on tonight, so let’s get to it! Here’s what we think you should be watching tonight.

Jenny’s Choice #1

O-M-G. Castle fans—or more specifically, Caskett shippers—make sure you are sitting down. Tonight is going to be a great episode. One of the clips I’ve seen made me squee like a school girl. Seriously. This show has really been growing and maturing and developing across the board over the last season and a half. The last episode was kind of a big test for Castle and Beckett—as a team working together to solve crimes and as a possible future couple. When the mayor came under suspicion of murder, Beckett was told by Captain Gates to basically treat him with respect, but not to pussyfoot around and not go after him when evidence pointed to him simply because he was the mayor and Castle’s friend. In the end, it was Wendell—or rather, Jordan Norris—who had done the deed. The damage was done, though. Between the investigation for murder and the investigation into skimming funds, the mayor’s bid for higher office was curtailed. Now, that’s a good thing, since to protect Beckett regarding her mother’s case, Castle has to be there with her, working at the station. If the mayor is gone, so is Castle. Eek. All in all, it was a great episode, and there were some fantastic moments from everyone.

On tonight’s episode, “An Embarrassment of Bitches,” when a famous dog trainer is killed, the investigation keeps coming back to charismatic reality TV star Kay Cappuccio (guest star Hilarie Burton, White Collar, One Tree Hill). Kay, a favorite of tabloids and gossip websites the world over, has achieved stardom without possessing any discernible skill or talent. But there seems to be more to her story than she is letting on – does that include murder? Justin Hartley (Smallville) guest stars as Reggie Starr, Kay’s boyfriend, and Nana Visitor (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) plays Dr. Patty Barker, an eminent therapist whose talents are called upon when it’s discovered that one of her clients witnessed the murder.

Check it out tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/4/11

Well, it’s Monday, which means it’s back to work and school for a lot of people. But it also means more of a great new week of shows. Yay! Just a quick update from Megan. She and Pherson are doing well. Some slight problems with recovery from her surgery, but overall, they are doing well. I think she’s enjoying the time off, but I can also tell she misses bringing you her thoughts and opinions, so don’t be surprised if you hear from her at some point this week about American Idol or something. 😉 Don’t forget to check out the giveaway for tonight’s premiere of WWE Tough Enough. You can find the giveaway here: WWE Tough Enough giveaway. Now, on to what Lisa, Jamie, & I think you should be watching tonight!

It’s probably no surprise whatsoever to anyone, but my choice tonight is the new episode of Castle on ABC. 😀 It’s been great this season, so I get excited every Monday night when a new episode is on. Tonight’s ep sounds gruesome, and I can’t wait to hear all the little jokes that come out of it… I’ve seen a handful of clips, and there is also a neat side story with Alexis and Castle, which promises some great moments for the two.

On tonight’s episode, Castle and Beckett investigate the murder of a man found inside a pizza oven (Ewww, well done!). The clues lead them to an article that may have been the motive behind the crime, but other clues suggest a deeper motive may have been at work.

Don’t miss the new ep tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c. Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.
