If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/3/15

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!

Jenny’s Choice

hotincleveland63smallThrough six seasons, I’ve enjoyed the stories and antics of Melanie, Joy, Victoria, and Elka on Hot in Cleveland. They started out as three women from L.A. who ended up living in Cleveland when their plane had to land there, and they discovered that they loved the attention (from men LOL ) they were getting. Because things weren’t going their way in L.A., they decided to stay, ending up renting a house that came with its own caretaker/roommate: Elka. There’s been love, heartbreak, and the friendship between all four of them has grown over the six seasons, and I’m very sad to see the show coming to an end tonight.

Going into the final episode, Joy and Bob are engaged. Will the wedding actually happen? Will Melanie and Victoria finally find love again? Will everyone stay in Cleveland, or will Melanie, Joy, and Victoria end up back in California? I’m sad to see it go, but I can’t wait to see what happens tonight!

On tonight’s extended finale, “Vegas, Baby/I Hate Goodbyes,” Joy and Bob’s wedding plans are derailed when they learn there is a baby available for adoption in Las Vegas; Victoria connects with a long-lost love.

Catch the 90-minute series finale and see how it all ends tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing MasterChef, Melissa & Joey, Brother vs Brother, Bullseye, Mystery Diners, & Craziest Restaurants in America.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/10/14

Guess who’s back? It has been a slow torture in my house with no internet because apparently we had a faulty power cord on our modem that was recalled. Who knew? Thankfully it’s all fixed now and I’m back to ordering you and your remote around, so let’s see what’s on the docket for tonight.

Megan’s Choice

chicagopd1210smallIt’s been far too long since we’ve had a new episode of Chicago PD grace our television screens, but tonight is the night it makes its delicious return. Honestly, I love this show more and more with every new episode and especially after the insanity that we saw last time. When we last saw our favorite badass cops, Antonio was working the private security detail when his employer was murdered. That is quite a huge failure for a bodyguard, but luckily for Antonio, he had his unit to cover his sexy behind. While it was really apparent from the beginning that the victim’s trophy wife set up the murder, what wasn’t expected was how well she did it so that she can’t be implicated because there is literally nothing tying her to the murder at all. The case was a little boring, but the investigation wasn’t, especially when Halstead and Lindsay had to go undercover at a sex club, because those two already have some great chemistry but that place just amped it up to a new level. I hope we get to see some relationship movement for them, because they will make a fabulous couple. My favorite part of the whole episode was how Olinski and Voight cleared Antonio’s name just as he was about to be asked to hand in his badge. They “rewrote history” so that records showed he was working undercover to get Asher the whole time. Antonio was so touched by this and so was I. It really solidified the feeling of family that this unit portrays. Hands down, this show continues to be one of my favorites week after week.

On tonight’s episode, “Called in Dead,” a friend of Nadia’s leads the intelligence unit to a huge heroin bust. Unfortunately this bust results in Olinsky arriving home to find the suspects are holding his wife. Voight and the team think they’ve found a common thread with the suspects, but it’s not who they think. Meanwhile, Burgess and Roman are given an assignment where they get paired with a K-9 officer, Jenn, who is Roman’s former partner and girlfriend.

To see how the team helps save Olinsky’s wife, tune in to NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, Hell’s Kitchen, black-ish, and Law & Order: SVU.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/18/14

Yay for Wednesday, which means we’re halfway through the week. It’s all downhill from here! (which I’ve always thought sounded odd, like it’s a bad thing. LOL) Enjoy the rest of the week and the slower TV schedule, because summer TV is hitting hard next week. Still, there’s some great stuff on, so here are our recommendations. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

hotincleveland618smallHot in Cleveland never fails to make me laugh. Last week, the ladies decided to accompany Victoria when she decided she needed to apologize to her college roommate (Maddie Banks — Kirstie Alley’s character on her own, probably canceled, sitcom on TV Land) for hiding the news of the audition for Sophie’s Choice and denying her the chance to get the role. Melanie, Joy, and Elka went along to cross things off their bucket list. Melanie was all about doing things that weren’t great for her, including sleeping with a stranger in an elevator (Maddie’s ex-boyfriend, played by cutie Mark Valley). Joy tried to audition for the Rockettes, only to be told she was too old. Elka tried to sell her new polish — which was full of pot — but it ended up taking off the engraving on Maddie’s Tony award. Oops. All in all, it was a fun & funny episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Undercover Lovers,” never-married Joy and Detective Bob make the decision to masquerade as a couple in love in order to go undercover; however, lines soon become blurred between the two of them. Elka learns that she now has a political rival.

Find out if Joy comes to her senses and realizes Bob isn’t the one for her tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Restaurant Stakeout, Motive, & Jennifer Falls.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/12/14

The cold weather’s done a number on a lot of people. My lips are so dry and cracked, they’re killing me. My friend slipped on icy concrete steps and is now wearing a hard splint—her wrist isn’t broken, but she’ll have to go back and check to see if she tore anything. Poor friend. 🙁 So be careful out there, because the cold weather can be dangerous! Take our recommendations below and stay in to watch TV! 😉

Jenny’s Choice

theexes212smallI love The Exes, and this season’s been great. The one thing I’m unhappy about, though, is that Eden and Phil broke up. Maybe they’ll get back together in the future, but the show is fun and funny regardless. Last week, Holly was injured after she fell in the bathtube, and Eden and Haskell were roped into taking care of her—Holly guilted them by reminding Haskell that it was his bath stuff she slipped on and reminding Eden that Holly took care of her when she was pregnant. Unfortunately, she was…not the easiest patient, and Eden and Haskell tried to drug her to get her to sleep. When Holly refused to eat the pudding they’d made her, Haskell accidentally ingested a bite, which put him right out. Holly realized what had happened, and Eden decided to follow Haskell, so she started scarfing the pudding down. It was kind of silly because Haskell went down after one bite, while Eden was still standing after four or five. But whatever. 😉 Meanwhile, Phil slept with one of Nicki’s old friends, and he found out after that she was not long away from taking her vows to become a nun. He freaked out. But it turned out that sleeping with him simply reinforced her decision, rather than changed her mind. I like Leah Remini, but I kinda miss Holly hanging out with the guys. *shrug*

On tonight’s episode, “When Haskell Met Sammy,” Holly accidentally sets Haskell up with a gay man. Stuart helps Phil get over his fear of funerals. Leah Remini, Roger Bart (Desperate Housewives), & Ed Quinn (Eureka) guest star.

See what happens when Haskell meets the…man of his dreams tonight on TV Land at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, Buy This Restaurant, & Men at Work.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/29/14

I hope you all are staying warm! It’s freezing across the country & Canada—unless you live in Florida, in which case… Pfffft! *laugh* I know I’m not the only one ready for Old Man Winter to go away and usher in spring, so to console us, here’s what we’re recommending for TV tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

chicagopd129smallI’m really enjoying Chicago PD still. I love having Sophia Bush back on my TV each week, and I really love Jon Seda’s Antonio & Jesse Lee Sofer’s Jay. Last week, the squad was tracking down the people who were bring cop killer bullets and weapons into the country. I loved watching them get the wife to tell the truth, and then Olinsky going in the car with the bad guys and having to keep talking his way out of trouble was great. I’m worried about Ruzek and the effects of the shooting from a couple of weeks ago. And what’s up with Halstead’s confrontation with the creepy young guy and his father? What happened between the kid and the little girl Halstead mentioned? (Who I’m guessing was maybe his sister?) I can’t wait to find out more about that story…

The one thing I’m disappointed about is that on their sister show, Chicago Fire, Severide’s sister was kidnapped because Severide humiliated the guy who had come to beat up or kill the dude at the firehouse after the dude’s brother drove drunk and hit the light pole, severly injuring the guy’s cousin. We got a few mentions of it in that same week’s episode of Chicago PD, but they couldn’t do anything because it hadn’t been 48 hours and there’d been no proof that she’d been kidnapped and no demands made. This week, Fire was preempted for the President’s speech, so we get no resolution to that story line yet…and I don’t know if we’ll hear about it at all tonight on PD.

On tonight’s episode, “Now Is Always Temporary,” more is learned about Halstead’s dislike of the Rodiger family, and it’s family relationships all around as Olinsky shows a paternal side with his daughter Lexi (guest star Alina Taber) in an attempt to protect her and as Voight’s trying to help his son who has recently been released from jail. Meanwhile the Intelligence Unit investigates a counterfeiting operation after discovering some high end cloth-like paper. Sergeant Platt (guest star Amy Morton) sends Atwater and Burgess to arrest a hoarder where they discover more than just clutter.

Find out what they find tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.
