If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/9/12

Sweeps is in full swing, and I already have a backlog of over two dozen episodes of shows to watch, just from May, and each night brings even more! Tis the season for fall/winter shows to come to an end and new summer shows to get started – although we only have one of each tonight with the CSI season 12 finale & the Around the World in 80 Plates series premiere. Read on to find out what we suggest you watch – or add to your overflowing DVR – tonight.

One of the Wednesday ABC comedies I always enjoy is Modern Family. Last week, we saw the return of Phil’s neighbor/friend Andre, who talked Phil into buying a new sports car. Meanwhile, Jay wanted to try to impress his old high school football buddies by arriving at his reunion in style, but he kept having problems with his transportation. And Lily lost her favorite stuffed bunny on a commuter train, but Cam and Mitchell decided to call it a loss after they saw it being used as a tissue by a homeless man.

While the Dunphy’s (particularly Phil) are my favorite part of the show, it’s always great to see everyone interacting as a large family. Last week, the stories were pretty much segregated, so I’m really looking forward to tonight’s episode, where once again, the entire gang is going on a big family vacation. It should be another fun-filled episode!

In tonight’s episode, “Disneyland,” the entire Pritchett clan goes to Disneyland, where Phil has trouble keeping up with Luke, Claire is surprised by an encounter with Dylan, Jay and Gloria debate suitable footwear, and Mitchell and Cameron cope with Lily’s recent inclination to run anywhere at anytime.

Check it out tonight on ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Modern Family @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching Survivor, Criminal Minds, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23, Revenge, Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, Around the World in 80 Plates, and Total Blackout.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/2/12

It’s hump day! Whether you take that literally (& if so, have fun & congrats! lol) or figuratively, we’re mid-way through a great week of television. It does mean we’re that much closer to the end of the season for all our favorite Fall/Spring shows, though, which is sad. 🙁 Ah well. That also means the summer season starts soon! For tonight, read on to find out what we think you should be watching!

I have really fallen in love with Law & Order: SVU again this season. The addition of Kelli Rollins & Danny Pino has been great, and I may be in the minority, but I’m so glad Stabler is gone. He was…unstable (*laugh*) a good majority of the time at the end. It’s nice having Benson back to being in every episode, too. I am sad that Olivia & the ADA broke up. I wasn’t surprised, really, because that’s a hard relationship to have, when he’s a lawyer she has to interact with a lot on the job, but still…

On the last episode, there was a rapist running loose, and the neighborhood was up in arms that the police were unable to catch him. When a woman was being attacked, a vigilante in superhero costume stepped in, beat him up, and chased him off. They were able to trace that attempted rapist back to a teenage, Asian, Jehovah Witness. After arresting him and questioning him, they realized he was a copy-cat, not the man who had already raped five women. (Just a quick question… Who in their right mind wants to copy-cat a rapist?? Sick, sick bastard, I’ll tell you.) They finally caught the bad guy, but only after the attempted rapist teenager was beaten & strung up by the vigilante group calling themselves the JLNY (Justice League New York), who they themselves were attacked. And Amaro watched his wife (who he’s suspected is having an affair) have lunch with a guy, and then turned around the next day and confronted him, punching him and telling him to stay away from his wife. Of course, then his wife stormed into the precint, screaming at him. She told him she isn’t having an affair, that she is seeing a shrink, and the guy she had lunch with is just her friend, that she can talk to him, because she can’t talk to her husband. It was a crazy, crazy episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Father Dearest,” Detectives Benson and Amaro investigate the disappearance of a teenaged girl after her young brother calls 9-1-1. While Fin and Rollins look into a possible abduction, they discover the girl had been searching for her biological father, an anonymous sperm donor. The investigation takes a startling turn when a suspect is found to be targeting several young, vulnerable women, all with the same personal connection. But the suspect isn’t what he seems, and Dr. Huang must delve into his past to save the women. Eric Close (Without a Trace & Chaos) and James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek & Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23) guest star!

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

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/25/12

Yesterday, the Comic-Con folks finally opened up application/registration for press. So I have been on a mad dash to gather validation materials in order to mail them out today. I’m really looking forward to Comic-Con again this year, and I can’t believe it’s less than three months away! I have already scheduled my flight, reserved my hotel, and paid for a badge, but I’ve love to qualify for press and get that badge money refunded. But enough about SDCC. Here’s what we suggest you check out on TV tonight.

I have already seen tonight’s two premiere episodes of the new Syfy channel game show, Total Blackout. This show is so much fun and is hosted by Jaleel White (Family Matters & Dancing with the Stars), who did a press Q&A last week. Each episode puts four contestants’ fears to the test as they are asked to identify items and perform tasks in total darkness. In the first round, the contests try to identify objects in tanks simply by touching them. However, in total darkness, even everyday objects become scream-worthy. The way their minds seem to picture the worst yields some pretty comical results! Other rounds have the contestants identifying objects by taste or smell, or trying to maneuver obstacle courses.

While I find this show hilarious to watch, I could never be a contestant. For the Syfy press kit, they sent a box to simulate the initial round’s challenge – you were supposed to reach in and try to identify the object. Even though I knew there would be nothing living in the box, I still freaked out – especially when touching the gummy frogs that were stuck to the bottom!

Tonight’s first episode, “Entering the Darkness,” seems like what a typical episode of the series will be like. However, the second episode of the night, “2 Heads are Blinder than 1,” features couples and was so hilarious, it made me wish every episode featured couples.

Check out the premiere tonight on Syfy at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Total Blackout @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Survivor, Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23, Revenge, Best Friends Forever, and Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/18/12

Stay five feet from me. Don’t come any closer. I am so sick right now, it’s not even funny. Coughing, throat feels like I swallowed knives, etc etc. So I’m extra glad there’s good stuff on tonight. It gives me a chance to put my feet up and try to relax some. Keep reading to see what we think you should be watching.

Last week’s Law & Order: SVU was sad and kind of heartbreaking… Benson started to pressure a rape suspect into making a false confession, albeit not on purpose, but she was stopped before she was able to. Then that led to a previous suspect who claims his confession was coerced…and it turned out it had been. They eventually got the right guy (for the previous crimes AND the new one), but that led to Benson and her ADA boyfriend to call it quits when he was put in charge of a team that will be looking into old cases. I really enjoyed them together. She deserves to have someone special in her life, and I loved Harry Connick Jr. Ah well. heh

On tonight’s episode, “Valentine’s Day,” while video chatting with his wife (guest star Chloe Sevigny) on the way home from an international business trip, a Wall Street executive watches an intruder assault and abduct her. The kidnappers demand ransom, and Detectives Benson, Amaro, Rollins, and Tutuola are on the scene when the missing housewife arrives to pick up the money. She frantically tells the detectives about her ordeal, but Benson grows suspicious of her story. The SVU squad and Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak dig deeper to find out who the real victim is in this increasingly complicated case.

Check it out tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Hot in Cleveland, Happily Divorced, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, Suburgatory, Modern Family & Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/11/12

I’ve been looking forward to today for a while, because there’s a great new premiere on tonight. Megan is recommending it, but I wanted to throw my two cents in, too. Besides that, there are some other great episodes on, including the season finale of Psych, so check out what we think you should be watching.

It’s been over a month since the last Law & Order: SVU, where we watched Olivia’s brother kind of melt down when his kids got taken away by social services. The rest of the team tracked down a creepy couple who was luring women into being kidnapped, raped, and forced to have children. It was crazy freaky. Tonight marks the return also of Harry Connick Jr. as Olivia’s Executive ADA boyfriend, but I think this may be his last episode, which really saddens me, because I like her actually happy. It’s taken 13 seasons, but I’ve loved them together. 🙁 Andre Braugher also guest stars. I love them both, so yay. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Justice Denied,” a rape victim is brought to the hospital after a harrowing hours-long ordeal, and Benson recognizes the suspect’s M.O. from a case she solved eight years ago. The jailed rapist confessed to Benson after a tough interrogation but has been claiming his innocence ever since his conviction. The SVU squad is forced to reopen Benson’s old case to determine if they are dealing with a copycat or a case of wrongful imprisonment. As Benson’s detective work is challenged, her personal relationship with Executive ADA Haden is also placed in jeopardy when Counselor Bayard Ellis gets involved.

Check it out tonight on NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Law & Order: SVU @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Hot in Cleveland, Happily Divorced, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, Suburgatory, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, the season finales of Psych & Restaurant Stakeout, and the series premiere of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23.
