If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/25/14

Wow… Looking ahead to the schedule this week, it’s pretty darn empty compared to the last little while! I think we can all use a break from the heavy amount of shows. In fact, I think Kyle was going to pull his hair out when we realized how many screeners for some of the summer shows as well as the first go-round of pilots started showing up! Fortunately, even though it’s a fairly light week, there’s still some good stuff on, so check out what we’re recommending tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

americandreambuilderssmallI’ve really loved American Dream Builders this season. It’s not a completely new concept, but there’s enough different and enough interesting personalities to make it a lot of fun to watch. I was so glad last week when Elaine was sent home. Sure, she’s been a bit better in recent weeks than she was for the first half (at least) of the series, but she was still overconfident, pompous, and rather witchy. And while I didn’t hate the red room as much as the others, I did see that it didn’t match the rest of the house at all. Find another way to work in the bold pop of color, but do it in a way that fits in with the house and the rest of the rooms, ya know? But what do I know? I’m certainly no designer. Anyway, I’m thrilled to pieces that it’s Lukas and Jay in the final two. Jay is really beginning to grow as a designer, instead of being a builder who does some design on the side, and Lukas has a great way of taking his minimalist POV and making it fit with the design and flow of the house. It should be an excellent finale, and honestly, I’ll be happy with whoever wins.

On tonight’s episode, “Beach Home,” after nine weeks and 19 renovations, the final two designers meet their final challenge. In their biggest renovation to date, they must transform two dream beach homes in Ventura, Calif. Luckily, they won’t have to go at it alone. They are reunited with a few surprise guests to help them. One designer will win the grand prize of $250,000 and be crowned as the first American Dream Builder.

See how the final renovations go and who comes out the winner tonight on the 2-hour finale on NBC at 7/6c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Signed, Sealed, Delivered, Iron Chef America, Cutthroat Kitchen, Salem, & Kitchen Casino.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/10/14

What a difference a week makes. Last week, my kiddo was off from school on Monday because of snow. Yesterday? Just over 60 degrees outside. Gotta love Kansas… On a good note, there’s some really great TV on tonight, so at least that’s consistent! Check out our recommendations. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

believe310smallTonight, JJ Abrams brings another new show to TV that could very well become one of my all-time favorites. Believe is about a ten-year-old little girl named Bo who, since the age of two, has had gifts such as levitation, telekinesis, the ability to control nature, and even the ability to predict the future. She was raised by a small group known as the “True Believers,” kept safe from harm and other people who would forcibly use her gifts for personal gain. But as she’s grown, her powers have gotten stronger, and her life and future are in jeopardy, so the “Believers” turn to the one person they…believe can keep her safe and be her full-time guardian: Tate. The problem is, Tate is on death row after being wrongfully imprisoned, so they must break him out. The show is their journey.

When I saw this pilot, I fell in love with it, more so than possibly any other pilot last summer. The cast is great, the stories are great, the action is great… I have been waiting on pins and needles to be able to share it with all of you and with my family, who didn’t watch the pilot with me last summer.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” a young girl who was born with extraordinary powers gains an unlikely protector out of a death row escapee who was wrongfully imprisoned, as the two flee from malevolent forces that want to use the girl’s abilities to take control of the world.

See if you become a “Believer” like me tonight on NBC at 10/9c.
