If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/1/12

I hope everyone has had a good weekend so far! Mine started early on Friday, when I got to meet 2 friends that I’ve known for a few years online when they brought their daughters to Kansas City to the American Girl store and to visit me! It was such a blast, even though they were only here for a couple of hours. Next time, they’ll leave the kids at home and come down for much longer. We had a lot of fun just talking books and writers and fanfiction, which is how we all met. Then Saturday, I slept a good portion of the afternoon, so it was nice and relaxing! LOL Anyway, some good stuff on tonight, so check out what we think you should be watching.

It’s been a pretty good season of Worst Cooks in America. I’m actually not TOO unhappy with the final two. Kelli, on Anne’s team, isn’t my favorite, but then…I didn’t like quite a few on her team, so… lol Kelli is a bit of a worry wart and spaz in the kitchen. She tends to get flustered easily, which is why I’m not her biggest fan. But she has also done well on several challenges, so she might do ok in the finale. On Bobby’s team, I was going to be ok with either Melissa, who was my personal favorite among all the contestants, and Vinnie, who was one of my other favorites. I wish it could have been the two of them in the final two, but they were both on Bobby’s team, so unfortunately, one of them had to go last week. Hopefully Vinnie can learn to manage his time. If he does that, he should win easily.

On tonight’s episode, “Worst to First: The Final Battle,” the two reminaing recruits are challenged to prepare a three-course meal and serve it in New York City’s David Burke Kitchen to three culinary experts, and the winner of the $25,000 grand prize will be determined based on the meal.

See who wins tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Worst Cooks in America @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching and DVRing Cupcake Wars, Iron Chef America, Breakout Kings, Coming Home, & Unchained Reaction.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/25/12

A year ago today, I became a mom for the second time. I held in my arms the most adorable, mischievous, quizzical, and sweet little boy, Pherson. Happy 1st Birthday, Pherson. The world became a brighter and louder place the moment you were born. 🙂

Now that I’ve gushed about my precious boy, let’s see what you should be watching on television tonight, shall we?

Every week, GCB gets a little bit nuttier, and I have been soaking up every delicious second of it. Last week, we watched as Carlene and her husband, Ripp, had marital issues – brought on by Ripp’s obsession on finding the money that Bill stole from him. We also watched Cricket get her “work out” by the tae kwon do instructor (he was super hot) and then later learned what a toll this faux marriage takes on her psyche. We also watched as Amanda is working on getting past her issues with Bill, but we also got a hint that he may actually be alive. Eek! I’m looking forward to Amanda and Carlene going head to head more, because I love the crazy bitchy behaviour.

On tonight’s episode, “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing,” Carlene’s Uncle Burl returns to town with his wife, Bitsy, and Gigi promises to throw them a homecoming party requiring guests to come dressed as their favorite Texan. Meanwhile, Blake recruits Amanda to consult for Cricket and Blake’s denim line, Pastor Tudor counsels Sharon and Zack during their rough patch – resulting in Sharon’s working at the church and Zach’s taking over Sharon’s duties at home – and Heather is after Burl’s 500 acres of land for her client, Andrew.

To watch this insane bitchy drama and have a good laugh, tune in to ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of GCB @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching and DVRing The Amazing Race, Once Upon a Time, The Good Wife, Harry’s Law, Desperate Housewives, and CSI: Miami.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/18/12

Did everyone have a good St. Patrick’s Day? Mine was ok. We got caught up a lot on TV on Friday & Saturday night, so I’m prepared for all the great new episodes this week. Speaking of new episodes, let’s see what we think you should be watching tonight.

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s episode of Breakout Kings was great for a lot of reasons. The team was just back to work after Charlie’s murder, and each was grieving in their own way. Ray talked with Erica and said that with Charlie gone, he needed her to step up and be a leader (going so far as to give her a gun in the middle of the case when it could be life or death—which it kind of ended up being). When no one would talk to the psychiatrist provided by the Marshalls, Ray tried to get everyone to talk to Lloyd. That didn’t work out so well, either. Eventually, they were all able to at least voice some of what they were feeling, and they all shared a shot (that Erica borrowed from the guy downstairs that we saw in the season premiere). Ray moved out of the halfway house, but at the “office,” he refused to move into Charlie’s office. Julianne took it upon herself to move him in while the team was away for the case, and she and the team let him know he needed to step up and be the leader Charlie knew he could be and that they knew he could be—that he needed to believe in himself as much as everyone else did.

As for the case… It was interesting because one of the two escapees was an undercover Fed, and although Shea thought for sure he had turned dirty. He was wrong…which we learned when Lloyd and Erica visited the guy’s home, only to find his wife and son kidnapped and the guy’s safe word for extraction written on the bathroom door in lipstick as a signal that she was in trouble. I have to say my favorite part of the episode was Lloyd distracting the kidnappers and then he and Erica working together to take them down and rescue the wife & son. My second favorite part was Lloyd getting tazed. Fantastic. I’m looking forward to seeing how the team continues to function with Charlie gone and Ray getting his footing as a Marshall with a badge and being the guy in charge.

On tonight’s episode, “Double Down,” Travis Muncey, actor and stool pigeon, escapes from prison. The Breakout Kings quickly find and snatch him back, only to discover that Travis is the key to capturing an even bigger fish. Things get serious when one of the team is kidnapped, and no holds are barred to make the team whole again.

Check it out tonight on A&E at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Breakout Kings @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching Cupcake Wars, Worst Cooks in America, Coming Home, CSI: Miami, & the series premiere of Unchained Reaction (hosted by Jamie and Adam from Mythbusters).

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/11/12

It’s the start of another week, and there’s some sports on this week, so it’s a bit of another slow week. There’s some good stuff on tonight, though, with some fan favorites, so check out what we think you should be watching. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

If you have been a fan of Breakout Kings since day one especially, or if you just tuned in for the first time last week, the last ten minutes just HAD to have shocked you. I heard about it on Twitter before I got to see the episode, so I knew Charlie was going to die, but it still took me by surprise. Seeing the gang gathered around trying to save him (or yelling at Lloyd to save him – even though Lloyd doesn’t have a MEDICAL degree lol) was fantastic and so heart-wrenching. The case set up future episodes well, too, as the bad guy stole Charlie’s badge and will be posing as him and coming after Lloyd later this season. It was so great. I love this show because it mixes drama with some great lighter moments, but the premise is just so damn interesting. Using cons to catch cons. That’s not a new idea, but it’s the best I’ve ever seen it portrayed.

On tonight’s episode, “Round Two,” a gang of vicious criminals escapes prison via an underground tunnel. The Breakout Kings find themselves cooperating with the FBI after learning one of the gang members is actually an undercover agent. When it starts to look like the undercover agent may have been turned, the pressure is on for the Kings to hunt them down and discover the truth. All the while, the team must struggle with the loss of one of their own.

Check it out tonight on A&E at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Breakout Kings @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/4/12

It’s Sunday, which means the start of a new week. It’s kind of a slow week, but there are some great episodes on every night…including tonight, so check out what we think you should be watching.

I’m still really enjoying Worst Cooks in America. Bobby Flay is great as a judge/mentor against Anne Burrell. He’s tough, and maybe not as patient as she is, but you know he has all the women swooning. LOL I was so pleased last week when the bottom two on Bobby’s team were Erica and Sarina. I didn’t know which I disliked more. Sarina’s baby voice and absolute cluelessness in the kitchen (not just inept but totally damn clueless) irritate the hell out of me, but Erica… Yeah, I was pleased when she went home. On Anne’s side, I wasn’t quite as happy that Sad Bob went home, but he wasn’t my favorite, so in the end, it could have been worse.

On tonight’s episode, “Late Night/Date Night,” the recruits have to cook up a late night treat and prepare a romantic entree for two.

See who goes home tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Worst Cooks in America @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Breakout Kings, Cupcake Wars, Iron Chef America, CSI: Miami, & GCB.
