If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/6/13

Welcome back, everyone! We hope everyone had a great couple of weeks and enjoyed the holidays. Did you get caught up on all the shows crowding your DVR? We did. Something like eight episodes of Person of Interest and six of Elementary in addition to odds and ends…we cut it down to only 35 recordings. Woohoo. *laugh* Of course, this week starts back with a lot of new TV, which means it’ll fill again pretty quickly. But that’s okay…it just means we’ll have plenty to watch! So check out what we all think you should be watching or recording to fill up your time tonight. 🙂

Two of my favorite people to watch on the Food Network (& in her case, on her show on ABC) are Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri. I know RR annoys some people, but I love her. 😀 Last season, Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off was incredibly fun to watch. I couldn’t decide who to root for most of the time, but I loved that Lou Diamond Phillips won, and Coolio shocked the heck out of me with how good he was. This season will hopefully be just as much fun, and there are definitely some characters this time around! Chilli (from the group TLC), Cornelia Guest, Dean McDermott, and figure skater Johnny Weir are Team Guy, and Carnie Wilson, Hines Ward, Kathy Najimy, and Gilbert Gottfried are Team Rachael.

On tonight’s premiere, “The Show Must Go On,” the teams must cook a prix fixe menu for a dinner theater and perform a skit for the patrons. (A prix fixe menu is simply a collection of pre-determined items presented as a multi course meal at a set price.)

Don’t miss the competition tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/18/12

We’re inching closer and closer to Christmas, and I’m beginning to make plans for what we’ll make for Christmas dinner. My in-laws are coming down, so I know we’re going to cook our turkey (thank you, Michael Symon! It’s delicious every time!), and I need to find a stuffing/dressing recipe. The one we tried for Thanksgiving (also courtesy of Michael Symon…) wasn’t my cup of tea, although my mom really loved it. LOL So I’m thinking maybe I’ll try my hand at my mom’s, even though she doesn’t have a recipe written down. It’ll be interesting to see what she sends me via email… Anyway, there’s still some great TV on tonight to distract us from worrying too much about the upcoming holiday, so check out our recommendations.

ncisla1218smallI debated doing NCIS tonight because Tony’s dad (played by Robert Wagner) is back, but in the end, I gotta go with NCIS: LA. Last week, Deeks was gone (supposedly in court testifying on a case), and I missed him. Granger filled in as Kensi’s partner for a bit, which made her so nervous. In the end, she found out he may be looking to her to fill more of a leadership role soon. Hmm. I hope not! I like how they have the teams now! This week is the Christmas episode, and from the previews, it looks like it’s going to be a cute one. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Free Ride,” Callen, Sam, Kensi, and Deeks spend Christmas aboard an aircraft carrier investigating the death of a fellow NCIS special agent. Meanwhile, Nell and Eric make the most of the holidays back at headquarters and Hetty takes a trip.

Catch the action (case & maybe romance-wise?) tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS: LA @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Happy Endings, Rizzoli & Isles, Leverage, Chopped, & Flashpoint.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/12

You know how slow last night was because of football, baseball, and the presidential debate? Tonight more than makes up for it. It’s a crazy-busy night of television, but we’re determined to let you know what we think you should be watching. So take a look and see if we can help you narrow it down. 😉

I waffled back and forth on what to pick tonight because there’s so much on. Did I want to go comedy, with Raising Hope or Ben and Kate, both of which I adore? Or did I want to go drama, with one of the NCIS shows? In the end, I’m choosing Flashpoint again this week. Last week’s season premiere was absolutely heartbreaking. The entire team took it so hard when Ed had to shoot the young woman who was threatening & trying to shoot her abusive, psycho father. Ed was strong in front of the team, but once he was home, he let it all hit him and showed how much it had affected him. Everyone was upset, but Raf seemed to be taking it the hardest back at the office. I thought he quit because they said they couldn’t do it differently next time, that when they shoot like Ed did, they can’t shoot to wound or maim. But from pictures of next week’s ep, he’s in there…so maybe he didn’t quit? I dunno. I hope not. I like him…although not as much as I like Sam. (What is it about Canadian cop shows & sexy characters named Sam?! Megan, any ideas? LOL)

On tonight’s episode, “No Kind of Life,” a gunpoint abduction at a doctor’s office puts Team One on a collision course with a desperate felon as his bleeding son’s life rests in Sam’s hands.

Don’t miss the pulse-pounding action tonight on ION at 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Raising Hope, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Vegas, Happy Endings, The New Normal, Dancing with the Stars, Ben and Kate, 19 Kids & Counting, Chopped, Covert Affairs, Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S., & Sons of Anarchy.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/23/12

We’re mid way through the week, and we’re still talking about all of the massive season finales that are still going on. Break ups, shake ups, deaths, laughs, and drama have all captivated viewers this season no matter what show you were tuning in to. As we grow closer to the end of the week, chatter will continue to blaze about what did or didn’t happen on our favorite shows. Take time to reflect on this season’s finales and settle in for another bumpy road tonight as you bid farewell or say so long for now to more of your fall must-see TV programs. It was a wild ride, and we’re already looking forward to the next one and what it has in store for fans!

The culmination of a fiery season is upon us, and you know the season finale is going to be off the charts smoking tonight! Last week on Revenge, a painful loss of Jack’s dog Sam brought a stronger bond between Jack and Emily. Victoria formed a new alliance that potentially sealed Conrad’s fate. Also, after a tug of war between her parents during a therapy session, Charlotte sought comfort from Declan. However, when she found him in the company of another girl, she began her vendetta against him. Emily came close to fulfilling her promise of killing the man with the white hair for her father’s death with help from Nolan. Unfortunately, when the last few minutes of the episode aired, we found the man with the white hair had the upper hand – and his mitts on Nolan.

On the season finale, “Reckoning,” with the end in sight, Emily pushes forward fearlessly as she closes in on the final phases of her plan for revenge. The Graysons continue their downward spiral into the rabbit hole of self-destruction. Also, a massive and explosive event leaves much hanging in the balance as courses are altered and even more becomes left in question.

Don’t miss a heart pounding moment at 10/9c on ABC! Learn where to find episodes online of Revenge @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23, The Middle, & Modern Family.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/16/12

Only 3 season finales tonight! *gasp* Compared to other nights this week with 8 in one night, 3 is easy peasy lemon squeezy, is it not? lol Still some great episodes on, though, so check out what we think you should be watching. 🙂

Last week’s Law & Order: SVU was really quite sad. It started off with Finn’s son meeting Munch for dinner or drinks, along with his fiance. Shortly after leaving the restaurant, the fiance was kidnapped off the street and severly beaten as part of a gang initiation or something. That story then just got lost (yes, they got the guys that did it, but did the fiance ever wake up after surgery? How did the talk with Finn & the other man’s father go? SO much was just left hanging in my opinion) in what turned out to be the main story: another man was kidnapped off the street and beaten, but that turned out to be because he’d been accused of sexually molesting a high school student he taught. In the end, we found out it was really the seemingly-sweet, pretty, young teacher, although blame was shifted from the man to another really mentally fragile/crazy teacher, finally ending with the boy killing the real teacher who he’d been in some sort of sexual relationship with. It was really convoluted and sad, both for the male teacher who was beat up and blamed and for the kid. But the fact that the gay beating story line with Finn, his son Ken, & Ken’s fiance was shoved to the back burner just irritated me. Regardless, the previews for tonight’s episode looked CRAZY, which is why it’s getting my top pick tonight.

On tonight’s episode, “Strange Beauty,” while off-duty, Detective Rollins spots a young woman screaming in the back of a moving taxi. The SVU squad quickly identifies the victim as a rebellious teenager, estranged from her family and experimenting in the world of tattoos and self-mutilation. The case takes an unexpected turn when the Medical Examiner presents the detectives with a cleanly severed leg, reminiscent of a similar finding in an old unsolved case. The detectives are drawn into the psychological elements of self-mutilation and ritual amputation as they investigate two brothers (guest stars David Eigenberg and Patrick Fischler) in order to link the cases and find the missing woman.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.
