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.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/8/13

Geez louise! We’re already into the second week of July! A friend told me Sunday night that we had like 170 days until Christmas. Insane, I tell ya. Time flies, whether your having fun or not. LOL So to help us pass the time—since it’s flying anyway!—here’s what we recommend for tonight’s TV. 🙂

kingmaxwell78smallI am still loving King & Maxwell on TNT. Last week’s case of the kidnapped little boy was great. We got to watch Sean & Michelle work to solve the case, putting together clues (with the help of the fantastic Edgar) to figure out that the mother used to be an art thief, and her old partner was out of jail and holding her son hostage in exchange for her stealing a painting from the museum she worked at. The way they set up the bad guy at the end was great, although how they got out of the car with no one noticing, I dunno. Also, Edgar continued looking into the video of the day Sean’s political candidate was shot and killed…and he thinks he’s come up with something that proves Sean was set up to be blinded so the guy could be shot. That’s how I’m taking it, anyway. Hopefully we’ll learn more about it tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “Loved Ones,” when the son of one of Sean’s old associates commits suicide, suspicions regarding his death arise. King and Maxwell’s investigation opens up an unexpected case involving a killer targeting the family members of former Secret Service agents.

See if Michelle can keep Sean safe while they find the bad guy tonight on TNT at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, The Glades, Major Crimes, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, Longmire, Siberia, Under the Dome, & Warehouse 13.
