If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/18/13

August is flying by, and honestly, I am ready for the kids to go back to school. I love them all dearly, but no matter how many things you do, someone is always complaining about being bored. At least tonight there is some great television to watch that will keep us anything but bored. Let’s see what’s on.

Megan’s Choice

whodunnitsmallIt’s time for the killer to be revealed on Whodunnit?, and I’m ready to find out. Aren’t you? I’m torn between it being Melina or Kam who is the killer, but at this point, it could be anyone. We watched how Ronnie was killed with Ricin, then ejected from the hot tub with an explosion of liquid nitrogen—then we ended with Giles showing up on a video tied up with guns to his head. I wonder who did it?

On tonight’s finale, “Golden Cuffs,” with only four guests remaining, a final game of speed and memory will determine the winner—as well as the killer—at Rue Manor.

To solve the mystery, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Unforgettable, Cutthroat Kitchen, and The Great Food Truck Race.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/14/13

Short and simple today… I’m feeling icky and just wanna get off my computer, Megan’s dealing with a sick kiddo, and JJ’s had a busy weekend, so Kyle & I are here to make our recommendations for tonight (& then I’m crashing). It’s a busy night with some great stuff on, so see if we can help you narrow it down.

Jenny’s Choice

crossinglines714smallI’m really enjoying the new NBC show Crossing Lines. I love the authentic feel it has to it. The accents don’t seem fake or forced, the locales are fantastic, and the story lines are really great. It’s a different take on cop shows, which are my favorite, so that’s fun to see. We’ve now learned more about Louis’s (Major Daniels) sad story, the death of his son. I hope we’ll continue to find out more to help get him closure. Last week was great because it dealt with truckers who basically set up and kidnap couples that are traveling with their young children, in order to have the adults basically fight to the death against each other. The loser couple’s child was then kept and raised by the mechanic who helped them and his wife. The graves all over the field and then the children walking through at the end? Heartbreaking.

On tonight’s episode, “Special Ops Pt 1,” when a wealthy teenager is taken hostage, the ICC team has to move fast to track the kidnappers. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie finds a connection to a similar case in Florence as the team races to rescue the boy. Elsewhere, Dorn and Louis soon discover an unexpected link to their arch enemy Alexander Dimitrov (guest star Marcel Iures), which puts their lives in danger.

Find out what kind of danger they’re in and if the team can find the hostage tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Food Court Wars, HGTV Star, Food Network Star, & Whodunnit?.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/23/13

I can’t believe how fast June is going. I was writing up the schedule for the week, and it just blows my mind that we’re already starting the last week of the month! Crazy, I tell ya! But summer does have its perks—one of which is great TV. So Kyle & I are here to tell you our recommendations on what to watch tonight… Two brand new shows! (Megan is busy getting ready for her daughter’s birthday party, and JJ is having internet issues. Hopefully they’ll join us tomorrow! 🙂 )

Jenny’s Choice

crossinglinessmallIt’s not news that I love cop shows, so when a new one premieres, I’m right there every time. Tonight, NBC is premiering the new cop show with a twist, Crossing Lines. The show is brought to TV by Ed Bernero, the mind behind our favorite profilers on Criminal Minds, so I’m hoping this’ll be another hit for him. To sum it up, it’s about a group of law enforcement officials from around the globe who band together with the permission of the ICC (International Criminal Court) to investigate crimes that cross borders and hunt down global criminals. Like the FBI is to the United States, this group of ICC law enforcement officials steps in when crimes are connected across borders—only they deal with borders between countries, not states. For instance, when a serial killer strikes in one country and then moves to a new country, this organization steps in to track them and works to solve the case. And the show starts with the addition of a former NYPD detective joining the team.

The series stars William Fichtner (Invasion, Prison Break), Donald Sutherland (Dirty Sexy Money & a ton of other stuff!), Marc Lavoine, Gabriella Pession, Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones), Moon Dailly, & Richard Flood. Those names you don’t recognize? Most have been in other shows & movies—in other countries. The show was filmed overseas as well. So combined, it gives it a really authentic vibe. I’ve seen the first hour of tonight’s 2-hour series premiere, and it really left me wanting more. So it’s definitely a show you should check out tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot Part 1 & 2,” disabled former NYPD detective Carl Hickman has become a recluse—that is, until he receives a unique offer from his friend Detective Major Louis Daniel. The Major has a tough case searching for an international serial killer who crosses borders undetected, leaving a trail of victims in his path. Carl joins a team of unique specialists working for the International Criminal Court (ICC); while trying to juggle his own personal demons and trying to corner the killer before time runs out. When a member of the ICC team goes missing, it is presumed to be at the hands of the psychotic serial killer. Meanwhile, Tommy follows the trail of the serial killer’s earlier victims and Hickman must face his demons in time to find the missing team member. Elsewhere, when Sebastian tracks down the killer the team must race to apprehend him but a sudden tragedy changes the teams’ lives forever.

See it tonight on NBC at 9/8c.
