If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/14/12

In 11 days, we will be crowded around a Christmas tree, exchanging gifts and Christmas cheer… Wait, only 11 days?!?! Where did the time go? At the end of the day, it’s not about the presents but about spending time with the ones we love, and what better way to do that than to curl up and watch some television on a Friday night? Let’s see what you should be watching.

kitchennightmaressmallI don’t know why, but I never get sick of Kitchen Nightmares. I’m sure it’s because Gordon Ramsay continually amuses me, but it could also be that I never tire of seeing how silly these people are. Although I have to say, the more I watch this show, the less I enjoy eating in restaurants, because I’m always worried that the kitchen isn’t clean or they use old food. What can I say? I’m a product of my television watching. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Revisted No.1,” Chef Ramsay heads back to Cafe Hon, Chierello, & Leones to see if the owners kept up the changes that were made.

To see if any of the owners kept up their end of the bargain, tune into FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Kitchen Nightmares @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Take It All, Malibu Country, and Say Yes to the Dress.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/7/12

It’s been a long week for a lot of people, so I say for everyone: Thank God it’s Friday! I’m actually running on fumes, so I’m going to turn it over to Kyle & Megan. (but if I had to choose something, I’d be recommending Nikita. 😉 Now, let’s see what the other two have to say. —Jenny

Fringe has been off for a few weeks, but tonight, it returns as we head down the final stretch of the series. Last time, we saw Peter becoming more and more like the observers—from his stoic demeanor to his “logical” deductions. With Peter’s new abilities, we also got to see how the observers view the world and see things before they happen. At the end of the episode, Peter told a horrified Olivia about how he had murdered some of the observers and had inserted the observer tech into his own head.

Will Peter be able to retain his humanity, or will he become a full-fledged emotionless being bent on revenge? Is there any hope of a happy ending for Peter and Olivia? Will the gang ever free all of these videotapes from the amber and put Walter’s plan into action? And will Astrid finally get something else to do besides just sitting in the lab and introducing the video tape of the week?!

On tonight’s episode, “The Human Kind,” Peter’s observation of Windmark puts him in grave danger; Olivia goes on a mission to find equipment for Walter and meets a woman with remarkable intuition.

See how far Peter goes tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Fringe @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Haven, Hunted, Undercover Boss, and Kitchen Nightmares.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/16/12

Happy Friday! Less than a week away from Thanksgiving, so things are getting a little hectic—at least in my house! 🙂 Because of the holiday and because of how hard these guys work to provide help for me and their outstanding opinions for you, I’m giving us all a week off from the Remote posts next week. Don’t worry, even though lots of shows will be off next week, I’ll still put up the schedules, but we’ll be back on Sunday, November 25, for the next Remote post. Until then, enjoy. 😉

Thankfully, Mac on CSI: NY is beginning to come around—at least, he apologized to Jo for treating her like he did, and he made up with Christine, even admitting to her what problems he’s been having and he said I love you to her for the first time. It’s so great to see him in a relationship. I wanted him with Melina Kanakaredes’ character, Stella, and then with Sela Wards’ Jo Danville. But I think that’s just because I always love seeing the main characters on my shows get together. LOL But I quickly grew to like Christine, and I like how they are together. He’s truly happy in a relationship for the first time since his wife died on 9/11, and I think that’s great. Now if he can get better so he doesn’t have to leave the job (and the show), I would love that.

The last episode was really, really good. One of my favorites in a while, actually, for several reasons. One, it was based on the board game Clue. A young man off his meds was re-enacting the game using real people, real weapons, and real places. Sick, but kind of awesome. (Not in a way that I’d want to see in real life, of course. But as a premise for a murder on the television, it was fun to watch.) And then when Lindsay put her face up to a microscope and got rings around her eyes (they looked like black eyes. lol), she went all “CSI” on the thing. Eventually, Danny admitted to having been the one to do it, but said it was aimed at Adam, not her. She forgave him, even finding it amusing, and I just loved seeing the Danny/Lindsay banter. I’ve loved them as a couple since before they got married, so moments like that are always cute.

On tonight’s episode, “Late Admissions,” the CSI team gets involved in the high-pressure world of an elite prep school when a student is found murdered while studying for the SATs. Lindsay makes a trip back home to Montana to visit her father and deal with some past issues. James Read (Charmed) guest stars as Lindsay’s father, Robert Monroe. Mark Moses (Desperate Housewives, Mad Men) guest stars as teacher Blake Connors.

See what Lindsay has to deal with while the team is dealing with rich, entitled high schoolers on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of CSI: NY @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, Malibu Country, Fringe, Grimm, Mystery Diners, Health Inspectors, & Hunted.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/26/12

You know last Friday, I mentioned that it was getting colder? NOTHING like it is now. What a difference a week makes. Things here have been up and down all week, so I’m looking forward to having some downtime to just relax and chill out while I watch some great TV—and we’re prepared to tell you what we think you should watch, so check out our recommendations for the night. 😉

I was going to do Nikita again (because how freakin adorable was Michael when he shouted that he was going back to get her engagement ring, and then the proposal and Nikita saying what she did? LOVED it. 😀 ), but then I realized the backdoor pilot of the new Mockingbird Lane is airing tonight. I LOVE this idea. The Munsters brought to life again by the mind behind the brilliant show Pushing Daisies and starring Jerry O’Connell (who I love)? Sign me up. Mockingbird Lane is a new reimagined version of the classic 1960s comedy The Munsters, now as a visually spectacular one-hour drama with a darker edge and tone. The cast includes Jerry O’Connell (The Defenders) as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi (Arrested Development) as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard (United States of Tara, The Riches) as Grandpa, Mason Cook (Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D) as Eddie, and Charity Wakefield (The Raven) as Marilyn.

I have no idea when the show will truly premiere, but I hope the pilot lives up to my expectations. Brian Fuller was a genius with Pushing Daisies, so I am truly hoping he brings that magic to this new show.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” sweet little Eddie Munster is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty. Truth is, he’s about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places—as in all over his body—every time the moon is full! Eddie’s got it pretty good, though. His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom Lily, the daughter of Dracula; his dad Herman, who brings new meaning to “Frankenstein”; and Grandpa, who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren’t actually Dracula! Of course, then there’s creepy cousin Marilyn, who’s really the odd one because she’s so completely normal.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Mockingbird Lane @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Nikita, Fringe, CSI: NY, Haven, Grimm, Blue Bloods, & Hunted.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/23/12

Yesterday, it was announced that Smash was renewed for a second season, and my TV addict’s heart did a little happy dance. I have been LOVING this show, and the music has been so well done. Isn’t that great news to start the weekend off with? 🙂 Now, let’s kick our Friday night off right with some new television.

Gordon Ramsay makes me giddy like a school girl, so I am looking forward to an all new episode of Kitchen Nightmares. It’s not just his accent (which I melt for), but also how he doesn’t tolerate stupidity. Nothing makes me more annoyed than stupidity. We haven’t had a lot of new episodes lately, so I’m planning on enjoying every minute of tonight’s episode to it’s fullest.

Tonight, Chef Ramsay heads to the City of Brotherly Love to check in on a family-owned Italian restaurant called Chiarella’s. Although the Philadelphia eatery boasts over 30 years of business, Chef Ramsay is shocked by the restaurant’s outdated menu, sloppy service, and disorganized staff.

Tune in to FOX at 8/7c to see if Ramsay can whip this restaurant into top shape. Learn where to find episodes online of Kitchen Nightmares @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Spartacus: Vengeance, Fairly Legal, and Supernatural.
