If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/26/13

It’s Monday, and I’m very sad to see the weekend end. It seems like it flew by—although, when does it ever not feel that way? We do only have a week until the Labor Day holiday here in the U.S., which is great for most everybody, and it’s especially great for me, as my husband’s taking two days off work to give him a five-day weekend. Yippee! But that’s a week away. To console ourselves that we still have to wait a week, check out what we recommend on TV tonight! 🙂

theglades826smallI’m so worried about how tonight’s season finale of The Glades is going to go. Last week was a good episode—and like Jim, I volleyed back and forth multiple times about who I thought was the killer and why. In the end, I liked how the case itself was wrapped up. But Jim and Callie are both keeping a secret from one another, and I don’t like that. Callie’s…meh. Hers isn’t a huge deal. So she patched up an old friend’s husband. Sure, the guy had gotten hurt while doing something illegal, but Callie tried not to get involved. And when the friend called and said something was wrong, Callie forced them to go to the hospital with her, knowing she couldn’t save him. And then, she did the right thing and called the cops, pleading to her friend to step back from her husband and his life of crime like she had. So I don’t think Jim would have a big problem with it. But Jim, on the other hand… *sigh* He’s keeping a HUGE secret from Callie—and Jeff, as far as we know—and that secret is not only dangerous physically, but it could be a relationship-ender. The fact that he knew Ray and Jeff were talking on the sly, the fact that he learned about Ray’s possibly leaving WitSec—and then Ray actually disappearing from WitSec—and he didn’t tell her? I love the character, but damn. I’m not sure Callie will ever be able to forgive or trust him again, even if he’s doing it to keep her safe and happy. I guess we’ll see how it ends up tonight! (Or not. Who knows with shows and what they wrap up and don’t wrap up in finales anymore!)

On tonight’s episode, “Tin Cup,” when the murder of a golf hustler shakes up a golf course, Jim and the team are called in to investigate the death and find the killer, which causes problems for Jim while he continues to try to tie up loose ends for Callie and his future.

Find out if secrets come back to haunt Jim tonight on A&E at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, Longmire, & The Shed.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/19/13

Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to work we go! (Well, for some of us. LOL Some of us—like me!—work from home. Yay. 😉 ) It’s Monday, which means back to work and school for most people, but it also means some good TV, so Megan, Kyle, & I are here to give you our recommendations on what you should be watching. 😀

Jenny’s Choice #1

majorcrimes819smallMajor Crimes has been great this season. I love the team, I’ve grown to love Sharon Raydor, and I love all the dynamics. The Rusty story lines are some of my favorites. Last week, he told Kris that being close to him would put her in danger, and she ran out of the squad room in tears. Is Rusty gay? Or is he just scared about starting a relationship because of his history? I don’t know. It doesn’t matter. It’s heartbreaking either way. And he’s been lying to Sharon and the others about how many threats he’s gotten, for fear that Creepy Emma will put him in witness protection (or something to that effect). I wonder if we’ll see any sort of resolution to that in tonight’s summer finale…

On tonight’s episode, “Poster Boy,” the team works strategically to capture a spree killer who has put everyone on high alert. Trying to solve the case quickly, Raydor is torn between two seemingly right decisions, each of which comes with major consequences. Meanwhile, Rusty is given some extra freedom, but more threats leave him afraid to stray far from home.

Watch a marathon of the first ten episodes today on TNT starting at 11AM/10AMc, followed by the summer finale at 9/8c.
