Ramblings of a Shipper’s Heart: The Woe of Woo

The other day, I was looking at shows that are building up on my DVR, and Scott, my husband, just shook his head and sighed. I have six episodes of Burn Notice (which includes last season’s finale) and five episodes of Royal Pains on there. That’s every episode of the first and all but the first two episodes of the second so far this season. I can’t bring myself to watch them (although I have hopes about that changing soon with Burn Notice…). Why? Because I hate a story line so much on both shows that I can’t enjoy the shows themselves. And yes, the title of this post is about a Shipper (which, if you don’t know, means someone who roots for a certain relationship (ergo, “shipper”) from a TV show, movie, book, whatever. Not all of this rant is about relationship woes on TV, but I suppose there is an underlying theme for most of them. 😉

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/18/11

Wow, there are so many season finales on tonight that it’s going to be tough to avoid spoilers! So either I’m going to have to stay up all night, or disconnect my internet until I’m caught up! 🙂 In other news, we are one week away from Christmas, so I hope everyone is close to finishing their shopping. I did the last of mine yesterday, since we are doing Christmas early—both of my brothers are going to be away on the 25th, so we have our first of three partial-family celebrations tonight. Then I rush home and get to work on these finales! 🙂

Dexter finishes out its sixth season tonight. Last week, Quinn arrived just in time to prevent Travis from killing Batista, but Travis still managed to escape. Back at Miami PD, Dexter’s quick thinking prevented a lethal gas outbreak, but not without Dexter being exposed. Meanwhile, as if Deb wasn’t messed up already, her therapist put the idea that she is attracted to Dexter into her head, which starts to consume her thoughts and dreams. And when Dexter tried to set a trap to catch Travis, his earlier exposure to the gas caused him to pass out, allowing Travis to turn the tables. At the end of the episode, we saw Louis mailing a package to Dexter. What’s in the box? Does he know Dexter’s secrets? If so, what are his plans? Will Dexter or the Miami PD be able to catch Travis? Will Deb share and explore her romantic feelings for her adopted brother? It should be a great finale, and hopefully set up some interesting things for the final two seasons.

In tonight’s episode, “This Is the Way the World Ends,” Dexter and Homicide try to stop the Doomsday Killers from committing one final murder, while Debra deals with a new emotional situation.

Tune in to the season finale tonight on Showtime at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Dexter @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/11/11

We are 15 days away from Christmas Day, which is not good, because I have so much left to do. We are also only 10 days away from the start of Hanukkah, and and 16 away from Kwanza. But whatever holiday you celebrate, the one thing that remains is how this time of year represents a slow in the television world. I am not looking forward to a few weeks of barely any new shows. Luckily, this week still has a few must see shows to keep our attention. So pull up a piece of couch and check out what you should be watching tonight.

It’s here! Tonight is the season finale of The Amazing Race. After last week’s sad elimination of my favorite team of Tommy & Andy, we are left with Ernie & Cindy, Jeremy & Sandy, and Amani & Marcus. Out of the teams left, I’m leaning toward Amani & Marcus, but I’d be happy with anyone but Jeremy & Sandy. They annoy me too much. Whatever the outcome, it’s been an interesting race, and as always, I’ve enjoyed it.

On tonight’s episode, “Go Out and Get It Done,” after racing through 4 continents, 20 cities, and nearly 40,000 miles, the final three teams race to Atlanta, GA, where a smooth landing evades one team as their competition soars. In the end, the winning team is crowned and awarded the $1 million dollar prize.

To see who wins the race, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Amazing Race @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote – 12/4/11

The holidays are upon us, so I’m getting excited about all the holiday episodes that will be coming our way. Although I’m also a little sad, because during the holidays, we are going to be low on new television. 🙁 *deep breath* Before I have a panic attack about the coming lack of television, let’s enjoy the new TV that is on tonight. Check out what you should be watching.

I love fairytales, and television, so the combination of both is delicious to me. Once Upon a Time is an amazing show that constantly pulls at your heart strings while entertaining your inner child with stories of our youth, spun into a TV show. Last week, we saw Emma and Archie save Henry from a sinkhole, and that made Regina very unhappy. We got to see how Jiminy Cricket came to be who he is. I loved every minute of this episode and am looking forward to tonight’s new episode.

On tonight’s episode, “The Shepherd,” David must choose between staying with Kathryn or leaving her to be with Mary Margaret, with whom he’s fallen deeply, and inexplicably, in love.

To see if true love will prevail, tune in to ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Once Upon a Time @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/2/11

Last week was a super busy week in television, and my DVR is tired. Unfortunately, it won’t be getting much of a break, because this week will be even busier. Let’s take a look at what you should be watching tonight, and pace yourself, because this week is going to be a long one!

Last week’s premiere of The Amazing Race really took us on a journey. I’ve yet to pick a favorite team, but I do find the flight attendant couple of Ron and Bill kind of annoying. Also, is it just me, or do they look a lot alike? They look like they’re related; I find it disconcerning. I’m also not a huge fan of Ethan and Jenna, for no other reason than they get on my nerves. 🙂 I’m sure by the end of tonight’s episode, I’ll have people I really dislike and ones I do like.

On tonight’s episode, the race continues in Indonesia, where the teams face a double elimination.

To see how the teams survive this leg of the race, tune in to CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Amazing Race @ Clicker.
