If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/23/14

Welcome to Sunday… Tonight is a relatively slow night as we gear back up to the first BUSY week in several weeks. Tonight is the closing ceremony for the Olympics, which means TV is back with a vengeance tonight. So check out our recommendations for what you should be watching tonight in preparation for the rest of the week! 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

growingupfisher223smallLike last night’s About a Boy, NBC is choosing to air the series premiere of Growing Up Fisher late after the Olympics. J.K. Simmons (The Closer, Law & Order, Men at Work) and Jenna Elfman (Dharma & Greg, 1600 Penn) star in this comedy about a couple who is brought closer together after their divorce. Mel (Simmons) is a busy man—chopping down trees, showing his daughter how to drive, and playing football with his son—but the catch is, Mel is blind. Joyce (Elfman) is the typical teenager—but the catch is, she’s the mom, and that makes it difficult for their real teenage daughter. The last member of the family is Henry, Mel and Joyce’s 11-year-old son. He’s been his father’s eyes and wingman, so he’s less than thrilled when Mel gets a new guide dog, Elvis. Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) does the voiceover as adult Henry, who realizes upon reflection that his parents’ split finally allowed the Fishers to become one happy (divorced) family.

This looks like an adorably sweet, funny comedy, and I love the casting of J.K. Simmons and Jenna Elfman. I’ve got high hopes for this one.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” an 11-year-old boy who’s been his blind father’s eyes and wingman for as long as he can remember has his world turned upside down when his parents decide to separate, which starts the family down a path of changes from their usual roles.

Find out if this one catches your interest tonight on NBC at 10:36/9:36c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Buy This Restaurant, Food Court Wars, Chopped, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/7/13

The first week of summer vacation is behind us, and so far, no one has killed each other, so that’s a plus! This next week is going to be filled with lots of trips to the park, the lake, and of course, sun block galore…so before I start this week of insanity, let’s see what you should be watching tonight.

Megan’s Choice

whodunnitsmallI have actually been enjoying Whodunnit?, because while it’s not exactly the best acting or contestants, I find the mysteries to be intriguing. The part where they have to examine the body in the morgue is quite realistic, which would probably be a little too intense for me personally. Last week, we watched Adrianna get a card saying she was in danger, which was fine with me, because that woman was incredibly annoying. At the end, we watched her try to escape from the house on a golf cart, which exploded, “killing” her.

On tonight’s episode, “Kaboom,” as the 10 remaining guests attempt to solve the latest murder, suspicion and tension among them leads to more alliances and backstabbing.

To watch and see the contestants start to crumble, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching True Blood, Ray Donovan, and Food Court Wars.
