If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/24/14

The Olympics are over, and while I really enjoyed cheering my country on, I am very ready for the regular schedule to resume. This week is bringing us a bunch of new episodes, a few season premieres, and even a few series premieres. I know… I’m super excited, too! Let’s see what’s on tonight that we’re recommending.

Megan’s Choice

thevoice2013smallThe Voice comes back for another season starting tonight, and I’m really looking forward to it. Blake and Adam are returning for this season, but Cee Lo and Christina are not. Instead, Usher and Shakira will be in their places. We’ve found out that Cee Lo will not be returning at all, but I’m be okay with that, as long as it’s always Usher in his place, because that boy is so yummy to look at and he is a great coach. This season, I’m hoping we see some more fabulous singers and lots of fun bickering between the judges, because that’s what makes this talent show my favorite.

On tonight’s episode, “Blind Auditions Part 1,” the celebrity coaches begin selecting vocalists in blind auditions.

To see how the talent stacks up this season, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Following, Almost Human, Star-Crossed, Mom, Intelligence, Teen Wolf, 2 Broke Girls, The Blacklist, Bitten, Lost Girl, Being Human, and Dallas.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/7/14

I’m so glad I’m not in Minnesota. Their highs right now are like -15° to -20°F! Isane, I tell ya. Another thing I’m glad about is that my new laptop SHOULD be here tomorrow. Yay! 😀 And finally, I’m also thrilled that TV is back because there’s a ton of stuff on tonight—including one I’ve been looking forward to most since last summer when I saw the screener: Intelligence. That’s my first pick, so check out our recommendations! 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

intelligence17smallAs I said, Intelligence was the show I’ve been looking forward to most for months. The show is about a high-tech intelligence operative (Josh Holloway, Lost) who is enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With it, he’s connected to to everything: Internet, WiFi, telephone & satellite data… It’s like…Chuck & Jake 2.0, but not. Leading his team is Marg Helgenberger (CSI), and his partner/“bodyguard” is Meghan Ory (Ruby/Red Riding Hood, Once Upon a Time). He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies.

I wasn’t a fan of Lost, so Josh Holloway wasn’t someone I’ve seen a lot of, but he’s super sexy and so much fun to watch in this pilot. And it’s great having Marg Helgenberger back on TV after she left CSI. Other members of the cast include James Martinez, John Billingsley, PJ Byrne, & Michael Rady.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Gabriel and Riley must rescue the kidnapped member of CyberCom who invented the chip implanted in Gabriel’s brain before the top-secret technology falls into the wrong hands. Meanwhile, Gabriel takes advantage of his chip to search for his wife who disappeared years ago.

See if this new science fiction drama is for you tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

Our Thoughts on the CBS 2013-14 Pilot Trailers

In case you missed it, Megan, Kyle, & I gave our opinions yesterday on the ABC trailers. You can view that here. Now, we’re here to give you our opinions on the CBS shows, starting with the dramas.


  • Jenny: I want to like this show so badly because I love Dylan McDermott, and it’s part cop show…but I have a feeling it’s going to be a no-go for me for several reasons. One, the drama aspect (like all the stuff going on with the kids—the pregnant daughter, drug-dealing son or something), and two, I hate watching things with dirty cops. (One of my most hated movies I’ve ever watched is Training Day, with a dirty Denzel Washington.) But I’ll give it a shot because of how much I want to like it. – Curious.
  • Megan: Very rarely do I not like a Jerry Bruckheimer drama, so I’m sure this is quickly going to become a must watch for me. The premise of a political conspiracy where Ellen (Toni Collette) is being coerced to assassinate the President to save her family, who are being held hostage by Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott) is a very intriguing and exciting one. I love that it’s only a 12-episode season so the story line is forced to move quickly and dramatically, similar to shows on cable networks like HBO. – Excited.
  • Kyle: This looks like an exciting series from executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott, who I’ve enjoyed in other dramatic series. I like that it is only a 12-episode series, starting in September and ending in January—which means that it should hopefully be a lot tighter in the writing, won’t drag on, and will give some resolution by the end. – Excited.
