If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/18/17

Ahh, gotta love it when the fall TV season starts up again! Strap in, ladies and gentlemen. It’s going to be a fun ride as we start up the Remotes again on a pretty regular basis. After a slow summer, I can’t wait!

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

My pick tonight is the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars. I haven’t been a regular watcher of this show for years now, because most of the time, I couldn’t care less about the celebrities they have on. But this season, I think it’s going to be fun for a few reasons, at least at the beginning. First, there’s married couple Nick & Vanessa Lachey, who are paired up with married couple Maks Chmerkovskiy & Peta Murgatroyd. Some of my other favorites are Debbie Gibson (I mean, I was an 80s music girl…) & Alan Bersten, Drew Scott (I love Property Brothers & their other shows!) & Emma Slater, & Terrell Owens (I’ve liked him for a while since I played fantasty football with him as my top pick) & Cheryl Burke, whom I also love.

Other contestants are Barbara Corcoran (Shark Tank) & Keo Motsepe, Derek Fisher (former Los Angeles Laker basketball player) & Sharna Burgess, Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle) & Witney Carson, Jordan Fisher (Grease: LIVE & singer) & Lindsay Arnold, Lindsey Stirling (acclaimed violinist)& Mark Ballas, Nikki Bella (WWE Diva) & Artem Chigvintsev, Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars) & Gleb Savchenko, and Victoria Arlen (gold & silver medalist in swimming) & Val Chmerkovskiy.

On tonight’s 2-hour premiere, each couple will perform a salsa, foxtrot, tango, or cha cha, vying for America’s vote for the first time. No couples will be eliminated on week one, and they will all advance to week two of the competition.

Check out the new celebrities and pick your favorites to win tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRIng So You Think You Can Dance & To Tell the Truth.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/11/13

I never have the Monday blues, simply because there’s so much great TV on. After a pretty good weekend, even though it was slow for TV, I’m ready to curl up and watch all the new stuff on tonight. How about you? Check out our recommendations. 🙂

bones1111smallLast week, we spent some time in Buenos Aires, watching Booth and Brennan on their working honeymoon on Bones. They went just to have a normal honeymoon, but it’s Booth and Brennan. They don’t know how to do normal. Brennan wanted to visit the morgue to look at some old remains, and while there, she quickly figured out there’d been a murder. In the end, it was hard to see the murderer arrested, because she’d killed her grandfather, who was a Nazi from Germany who’d defected to Buenos Aires. He wasn’t a good guy, and when she found out who he was, when he told her all his Nazi…stuff would be hers, she flipped out, grabbed one of his Nazi gold bars, bashing him over the head. Meanwhile, back in Washington, Hodgins and Angela were having a doozy of a time babysitting Christine. Half the time, they were having fun, seeing both kids playing together. The rest of the time, they were frazzled trying to keep up with two kids. They both said they want a second baby. Will see see another baby soon?

On tonight’s episode, “The Dude in the Dam,” when they encounter the murder of a failed model whose only source of income was from his sperm donations, the Jeffersonian team finds that his killer could have been anyone who had been tricked by his falsified records. Hodgins plays host to a fly larva.

Find out what records the man faked tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Sleepy Hollow, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, The Blacklist, & Castle.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/16/13

It’s Monday! Normally, that would be cause for boos and hisses, but tonight marks the first night of the fall TV season, and that includes one of my favorite returning shows and one of my favorite new shows. So YAY! To see what we’re recommending, read on. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

bones916smallI was lucky enough to see a screener for the Bones season premiere, and I couldn’t pass up the chance to watch early. I was one of those fans who was incredibly unhappy in the season six finale, when we didn’t see the change in Booth/Brennan’s relationship and she told him she was pregnant. But since, we’ve gotten some fantastic stuff of them as a couple, and I’ve been very pleased. It even got to the point where she proposed to him last season…and then he broke her heart and said he didn’t think they should get married. Even though we knew why he’d done it, it still ticked me off to no end because just when Bones had opened her heart, he ripped it to shreds. I was worried it would set her back years. I’m very pleased to say that, while yes, things are VERY rocky, by the end of the episode, Hart and Stephen had once again renewed my faith. It’s a great, great episode, and I can’t wait to see it again tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “The Secrets in the Proposal,” the remains of an accountant for the State Department are found in a hotel air conditioning unit; Booth finds an Army buddy and CIA agent, Danny Beck, removing evidence from the victim’s condo; Brennan contemplates her future with Booth. Freddie Prinze Jr. & Mather Zickel guest star.

Find out if Brennan comes to a decision tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Sleepy Hollow & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
