If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/28/13

I’m so glad it’s Wednesday, because that means we’re halfway through the week and one more day until my husband’s vacation. That, and there’s some great stuff on tonight, so check out our recommendations! 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

topshotsmallThis has been the best season of Top Shot, by far. I love that it’s the All-Stars, all returning players that didn’t quite reach the top spot in their previous seasons, competing for another chance at being the “Top Shot.” Throughout the season, they’ve been competitive, but they have shown good sportsmanship the entire season, too. The way the show changed it up this season, by basing the elimination challenge solely on how well they shot. There’s no voting. There’s no favoritism. I can’t get over how much of a difference that’s made in my enjoyment of the show. I liked it before, but this season, I’ve completely loved it—even when my favorite, Kelly, went home. 😉 Last week was great. The guys had to shoot exploding targets from the back of a moving Army half-track. Then in the elimination challenge, it was a game of horse, where they chose their weapon, their target, their distance, and their shooting stance. It was a lot of fun, but William ended up going home when Brian—who showed a tremendous sportsmanship and made it a good, fair shot, rather than choosing something he was almost guaranteed to win—out-shot him in a tie-breaking round.

Tonight is the season finale, and I’m rooting for Gary to win. He’s just such a sweet, nice guy, and he’s adorable. But honestly, whoever wins deserves it, and I won’t be upset, because they’ve all had a great season. I will have my fingers crossed that we get another season, and while it won’t be another season of All-Stars, I hope that they’ll continue with the way they did it this season and not have the contestants vote for the people going into the elimination challenges.

On tonight’s episode, “Last Man Standing,” the final four must crawl through a tunnel, dodge barbed wire, and slither through mud with an AK-47. With the title of “Top Shot All-Stars” at stake, various weapons from the season test the speed and precision of the last two competitors in this fast-paced showdown.

Find out who outshoots and outscores the rest to win the title tonight on the History Channel at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Melissa & Joey, America’s Got Talent, Broadchurch, Hot in Cleveland, Top Chef Masters, The Exes, Modern Dads, & The Soul Man.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/10/13

There has been some incredibly insane weather around here, with some parts of Ontario getting a month’s worth of rain in just an hour! This is on top of the flooding in Alberta that recently took place. Our thoughts go out to all who are affected. On a lighter note, let’s see what’s on television tonight.

Megan’s Choice

masterchef2012smallMasterChef has been having a really good season, and I missed it last week. Last episode, we watched the contestants battle it out while cooking for a wedding, and it was an up-and-down situation. In the end, it left Lynn and Jonny competing during the elimination challenge of making macaroons. They are such delicate cookies, and Jonny couldn’t handle being gentle under pressure and he was eliminated. I was sad because I really liked him!

On tonight’s episode, “11 Chefs Compete/10 Chefs Compete,” actress and restaurateur Eva Longoria surprises the contestants and selects Mexican-inspired ingredients for the mystery box challenge. The contestant who creates the most impressive restaurant-quality dish will determine which food basket each of the remaining contestants will receive in the elimination round. Later, in the team challenge, the home cooks hit the beach and cook fish tacos for more than 100 hungry surfers. The surfers will determine the winning team, who will earn a huge surprise: tickets to the 2013 MLB All-Star Game in New York City, airing Tuesday, July 16, on FOX. Meanwhile, the losing team faces a pressure test and must cook a perfect chicken breast three ways. In the end, two more contestants will go home.

To see how your favorite does, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The American Baking Competition, Camp, The Bridge, and America’s Got Talent.
