rizzoliisles310smallI’m really enjoying this second half of season 5 of Rizzoli & Isles. Last week, on the personal side of things, Jane was worried about her mom’s spending habits being out of control now that she had a new job. And with Angela getting three new credit cards and spending quite a bit like she was, I could see why Jane was worried. After Maura (at Jane’s behest) stepped in and tried to talk to Angela about it, Angela busted Maura on her own binge spending. The difference, to me, is that Maura can clearly afford it. She isn’t living beyond her means, even if she does spend way too much shopping for things that do nothing but sit in a closet. Still, in the end, Angela cut up two of the cards, promised that she would be responsible while still splurging every so often, and helped Maura pare down her closeted things. On the case side, Jane and Korsak investigated when a “green” clothing designer was killed. During their investigation, they thought at first that the victim was into something shady, then thought his wife was, but in the end, both of them were innocent. Then they thought they’d found the murderer when they came across the van that had been seen speeding away from the crime scene and a smell was coming from it, but it turned out to be filled with trash a PI had gathered as part of his cases. And that PI turned out to be innocent and actually a big help with not only finding the victim’s killer but getting him to confess. (And of course it turned out to be all about drugs…) I adored the PI because the chemistry between him & Jane was phenomenal. I do hope he comes back!

Next week is the 2-hour season finale, which makes me very sad. 🙁 But it’s already been renewed for season 6, so I’m happy about that! I just wish we didn’t have to wait several months at least for it to come back!

On tonight’s episode, “In Plain View,” after a man is found bludgeoned to death on the side of the road, Jane and the squad team up with another detective who believes he is hunting the same roadside killer. Meanwhile, Maura discovers she has had her identity stolen and recruits Angela to help track down the culprit.

See if Angela can find the identity thief and if the squad can catch the killer tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, NCIS, Repeat After Me, 19 Kids & Counting, Married at First Sight: the First Year, NCIS: NOLA, Chicago Fire, Chopped, Restaurant Startup, & Cougar Town.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/3/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Megan’s Choice

hellskitchen33smallIt’s time for another season of Hell’s Kitchen, and even though this show is in its 14th season, I can’t get enough. I love cooking competition shows, but no matter how many new ones come out, this one is still at the top of my list because of the crazy antics that get brought out with all the chefs. The group of chefs this season appears to be quite the smorgasbord, but it is definitely going to be a hot season with drama, because this bunch looks feisty. I’m going to start a count of how many times someone messes up scallops in the season premiere.

On tonight’s episode, “18 Chefs Compete,” Chef Ramsay asks 18 new contestants to present their signature dishes in front of an audience, and the winning team earns a night with William Shatner; one team gets kicked out of the kitchen during the first dinner service.

To see how this group of 18 handles the heat in Ramsay’s kitchen, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Fresh Off the Boat, Pretty Little Liars, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Mindy Project, Chopped, Chicago Fire, and Gangland Undercover.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/3/14

Christmas lights are up (inside—we don’t do outside lights because we live in a triplex), most of our Christmas presents are bought (still need niece & nephew), and next is making up the shopping list for food and placing an order for turkey & pies. I’m totally gearing up for Christmas. Woohoo! But all that’s exhausting, so I’ll be glad to relax to some great TV tonight. Check out our recommendations so you know what to watch when you do the same.

thegoldbergs123smallI’m so happy to have a new episode of The Goldbergs tonight. The last new ep was Thanksgiving, which was great. Erica wanted to skip the family tradition of cooking with Beverly, which of course her mother was against. They made a bet that Erica couldn’t keep up with Beverly’s Jazzercise class, and Beverly was shocked when Erica won. In the end, Erica helped her mom when she figured out why it was so important to Beverly, and the family had a great meal. I did love when Murray’s brother stopped by with pagers for the boys. *laugh* Anyone else remember pagers? Oh my word…

This show really cracks me up every week and takes me back to some fond (and not-so-fond) memories of when I was growing up. It’s by far one of my most favorite comedies on TV right now.

On tonight’s episode, “I Rode a Hoverboard,” Adam breaks his arm and exaggerates at school that he fell off of a hover board just like in the Back to the Future movie. But the lie threatens his friendship with Emmy Mirsky. Meanwhile, the family falls in love with the new Chinese restaurant in town, and Beverly fears she’s being replaced in the kitchen.

Find out how Beverly wins her family’s love & devotion back tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, black-ish, Modern Family, Hot in Cleveland, Kitchen Inferno, Top Chef, & The Exes.

Ahh, it’s finally Wednesday! My kid’s been gone on a family trip to Disney World in Florida since early Friday morning. I’ll be so glad to have him home today! But enough about me… Check out what we’re recommending for tonight.

Jenny’s Choice

hotincleveland115smallI’m doing a dual pick tonight, with the season premieres of Hot in Cleveland & The Exes. Last season, the women in Cleveland celebrated their collective birthdays, and per tradition, they set one another up on blind dates. Melanie’s date ended up together with his sex therapist, who he’d started seeing in order to be ready to date Melanie, but along the way, they fell for each other. Victoria’s date (Luke Perry) was growing body parts (noses and…who knows what else) for other people on his body. And Joy was proposed to…by Simon, Mitch, & Bob. But the season ended when she was accidently knocked unconscious and then spirited away to the hospital, before she could announce her decision. And while waiting for her, Elka was shocked when Max walked by! Meanwhile, on the season finale of The Exes, Phil and Nicki were about to sleep together but changed their minds, and Haskell, thinking he had to interrupt and tell Phil about his feelings for her, barged in, told Phil he was in love with Nicki, and was shocked when she walked in after overhearing him.

theexes115smallSo who will Joy choose—if anyone—and what will Nicki say about Haskell’s declaration? I’m so excited for the new seasons to start tonight so I can find out!

On tonight’s Hot in Cleveland premiere, “Comfort and Joy,” Joy decides whether to marry Mitch, Simon, or Bob. Victoria’s new CGI movie proves challenging in ways she didn’t expect. Elka tries to bring film jobs to Cleveland.

Then on the premiere of The Exes, “The Devil Wears Hanes,” Holly makes an attempt at playing Cupid following Haskell’s declaration of love for Nicki; meanwhile, Stuart comes up with a plan to secretly arrange for Phil to get together with his crush from when he was in high school.

Check out the laughs tonight on TV Land at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, The Mysteries of Laura, Criminal Minds, Cutthroat Kitchen, Law & Order: SVU, Chicago PD, Kitchen Inferno, Stalker, & Top Chef.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/8/14

I am absolutely loving the new season of TV. Even when I’m having a long day, being able to watch some great new TV at night. You? Tonight’s another great night, so check out our recommendations.

Jenny’s Choice

topchefduelssmallMy pick tonight is the season finale of Top Chef Duels. I was late to the Top Chef party, but I’m a big fan now, and this new version has been a lot of fun to watch. Pitting two former contestants against one another—generally a pairing who has something in common or some history with one another, making it even more exciting—and then having them battle each other in three challenges has been interesting. I love that, for the most part, each person wins their own battle, but the few times that contestant one won contestant two’s challenge or vice versa were definitely interesting.

On tonight’s episode, “Finale,” this is the epic showdown as the winners of each of the Duels plus the champion from the digital companion series “The Knockout” convene in the kitchen to crown a victor. In the end, only one chef will earn bragging rights and win the $100,000 grand prize and a culinary adventure that will be featured in Food and Wine Magazine.

Find out who takes home the top prize tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, The Mysteries of Laura, The Goldbergs, Criminal Minds, Cutthroat Kitchen, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Stalker, black-ish, Chicago PD, Chopped, & Wahlburgers.
