If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/16/12

Happy Friday! Less than a week away from Thanksgiving, so things are getting a little hectic—at least in my house! 🙂 Because of the holiday and because of how hard these guys work to provide help for me and their outstanding opinions for you, I’m giving us all a week off from the Remote posts next week. Don’t worry, even though lots of shows will be off next week, I’ll still put up the schedules, but we’ll be back on Sunday, November 25, for the next Remote post. Until then, enjoy. 😉

Thankfully, Mac on CSI: NY is beginning to come around—at least, he apologized to Jo for treating her like he did, and he made up with Christine, even admitting to her what problems he’s been having and he said I love you to her for the first time. It’s so great to see him in a relationship. I wanted him with Melina Kanakaredes’ character, Stella, and then with Sela Wards’ Jo Danville. But I think that’s just because I always love seeing the main characters on my shows get together. LOL But I quickly grew to like Christine, and I like how they are together. He’s truly happy in a relationship for the first time since his wife died on 9/11, and I think that’s great. Now if he can get better so he doesn’t have to leave the job (and the show), I would love that.

The last episode was really, really good. One of my favorites in a while, actually, for several reasons. One, it was based on the board game Clue. A young man off his meds was re-enacting the game using real people, real weapons, and real places. Sick, but kind of awesome. (Not in a way that I’d want to see in real life, of course. But as a premise for a murder on the television, it was fun to watch.) And then when Lindsay put her face up to a microscope and got rings around her eyes (they looked like black eyes. lol), she went all “CSI” on the thing. Eventually, Danny admitted to having been the one to do it, but said it was aimed at Adam, not her. She forgave him, even finding it amusing, and I just loved seeing the Danny/Lindsay banter. I’ve loved them as a couple since before they got married, so moments like that are always cute.

On tonight’s episode, “Late Admissions,” the CSI team gets involved in the high-pressure world of an elite prep school when a student is found murdered while studying for the SATs. Lindsay makes a trip back home to Montana to visit her father and deal with some past issues. James Read (Charmed) guest stars as Lindsay’s father, Robert Monroe. Mark Moses (Desperate Housewives, Mad Men) guest stars as teacher Blake Connors.

See what Lindsay has to deal with while the team is dealing with rich, entitled high schoolers on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of CSI: NY @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, Malibu Country, Fringe, Grimm, Mystery Diners, Health Inspectors, & Hunted.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/28/12

What a week it’s been. I’ve had a sinus infection for a couple of days, but that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying the great TV that’s been on this week. I’m having trouble picking a favorite episode, but I still love the Castle premiere. There are quite a few ranked right up there, though! There’s more great stuff on tonight, so read on to find out what we recommend. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

It seems like the last two seasons, the fate of CSI: NY has hung in the balance, so the writers decided to do the same, putting up a cliffhanger or whatever. Last season, Mac was shot and spent some of the episode in limbo with his ex-wife, trying to decide if he was going to fight to live or if he was going to give up. He ended up fighting to live, and the team ended up catching the shooter. Then it flash-forwarded to six months later, with Mac re-joining the team out in the field. If the series had ended then, it might have been an okay finale, but I’m very glad it didn’t. It’s hard for me to remember that I didn’t watch this show for the first couple of seasons. I love it so much now, and I’m really glad it’s back tonight. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Reignited,” the CSI team is called upon to investigate when a local fire chief who was also a friend of Mac’s, is killed in a blaze that used the same technique as a recently-paroled arsonist, leaving the team in the line of fire during the investigation. Rob Morrow (Numb3rs) guest stars.

Don’t miss all the drama tonight on CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of CSI: NY @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Blue Bloods, Made in Jersey, Haven, & Grimm.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/11/12

Fridays are normally kind of slow, but tonight is definitely an exception, because not only are there five season finales tonight, there are also several other great episodes to round out our work week. There are so many, in fact, that Megan & I both just couldn’t leave it at one recommendation…and I couldn’t limit mine to two! *laugh* So read on to find out what we think you should be watching tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight is the finale of The Finder…for several reasons. First, I love the show. Second, I love when series star Geoff Stults and his brother George guest star on the other’s series (Geoff guest starred on 7th Heaven a couple of times when George was starring. Loved that. lol). And finally…well, it was announced this week that the show has been canceled. So tonight is going to be the last episode. Very sad for those of us that enjoy it!. On the last episode, it was a lot of fun seeing how each of the characters dealt with all the voodoo stuff. It was all sorts of craziness. First, Isabel was shot during a gang shootout at a funeral, in which a priest was killed and her partner on the stakeout was shot. One of the gang members then comes to Walter and asks him to find a voodoo doll that someone made of him. Isabel told him he had to do it, but Leo refused to participate (until later, when Walter himself was shot…). Luckily, a protection medal made for Walter by the “good witch” Willa brought to them earlier in the case saved him, and he was hurt but ok. Again, it was a fun episode because of the way everyone reacted to the voodoo and witchcraft aspects. 🙂

The biggest question for me going into tonight’s finale is Willa. All season, it’s been gearing up to her having to marry Timo. I can’t see the show letting that happen, so how will she get out of it? Will she wise up and say “Screw you!” to her gypsy family for good? By the way, if you are on Twitter, you should be following series creator & all around funny guy, @HartHanson. Tell him I sent you. 😉

On tonight’s series finale, “The Boy with the Bucket,” when Walter’s older brother Langston (guest star George Stults) comes to town, he asks Walter to visit their dying father (guest star John Ashton, Gone Baby Gone). As his dying wish, his father asks Walter to find his first love, Walter and Langston’s mother (guest star Annette O’Toole, Smallville). Taking on the most important search of his life, Walter battles obstacles which may prove to be insurmountable as his father’s health rapidly declines. Meanwhile, Willa is being forced to marry Timo by their Uncle Shadrack.

Check it out tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Finder @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/27/12

Ugh, another week of being sick. So not fun. But it’s been another great week of new TV (albeit a little slow) and tonight is no exception. There’s some great stuff on, so let’s get to it!

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s Nikita was fantastic. Nikita herself went up against an old foe, and for a bit, it looked like he was going to get the best of her. Then Michael gave himself up to save her, and just when the two of them were fighting him for their lives, Sean and Alex rushed in. Sean got the ultimate revenge for his mother’s death by shooting him dead. The guy was scary because he had zero adgenda except for revenge…to make Nikita hurt as much as she’d made him hurt. All of it served to make Nikita think that she was too dark and too much like Percy – enjoying the pain and suffering she inflicts upon others – to be a good person. The scene at the end with Michael and Nikita was fantastic for Mikita shippers. And once again, Nikita laid down the law with Percy, telling him she was coming for him.

On tonight’s episode, “Shadow Walker,” Nikita convinces a reluctant Birkhoff to use 20 million dollars of his own money in a plan to bankrupt Percy and Division, but when Percy ends up stealing Birkhoff’s entire life savings, Birkhoff and Nikita clash. Team Nikita has one last chance to hit Percy again, but Birkhoff is arrested trying to regain his millions and Nikita realizes she must break him out of jail before Division gets to him. Michael and Alex go after Birkhoff’s stolen money while Nikita goes to save Birkhoff.

Don’t miss it tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Nikita @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing The Finder, CSI: NY, Fairly Legal, Grimm, Melissa & Tye, & Blue Bloods.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/30/12

TGIF! In Canada, Mother Nature is messed up lately. It was unseasonably, warm but now it’s practically snowing today, so I think that Father Time must have pissed off Mother Nature and we’re paying for it! To help you deal with the drama that comes from all this weather, sit back and enjoy some new shows. Let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

It’s been a bit since an all new episode of Grimm, so I’m extra excited for tonight’s episode. When we left Nick, he was facing some relationship issues with Juliette: she was tired of his job and the stress it brings. I couldn’t be happier at the prospect of Juliette leaving, because she annoys the hell out of me. Nick just needs to focus on being the best Grimm he can be and enjoy his bromance with Monroe. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Island of Dreams,” Nick and Monroe investigate the murder of a spice-shop owner, and the victim’s sister may prove to be an ally for Nick. Captain Renard recruits Adalind to hex Hank; Sgt. Wu gets caught up in Adalind’s scheme.

To see if Nick and Monroe can solve this crime and if Hank is ever useful, tune in to NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grimm @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching and recording Supernatural, CSI: NY, and Blue Bloods.
