If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/19/12

It’s the beginning of another week, and during February sweeps, that can only mean one thing – fantastic TV! There is a lot of new television on tonight, and what better gift to give yourself than new, fantastic TV to start of the week. Let’s see what you should be watching.

On television these days, we have vampires, werewolves, and witches, which all deliver excellent drama – but lately, it’s the zombies that have gotten my vote. The Walking Dead never fails to deliver spin tingling thrills. I give the amazing writers props for writing such intense and deep characters that continue to grow week to week, helping us to stay absolutely invested. Last week, this cleverly creepy show returned with an episode that made us ask – “Is there room at the farm for you?” The consequence of Shane and the others killing the zombies that Hershel had in the barn – including Sofia – was complete and utter chaos. In my opinion, Hershel and the other original farm family are all off their rocker. I get that it’s technically their loved ones in there, but it’s not actually, and those zombies want to eat the living, so why keep a barn full of them so close to the remaining members of the family? Rick is forced to shoot living people when they threaten the farm, and Hershel backs him – looks like the beginning of a lucrative friendship again.

On tonight’s episode, “Triggerfinger,” trapped, Rick, Hershel, and Glenn fight to survive against new foes, both dead and alive. Shane finds Lori in danger on the road and makes it his mission to bring her back to the farm.

To see if Shane can save Lori, tune in to AMC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Walking Dead @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Once Upon a Time, CSI: Miami, The Good Wife, and Iron Chef America.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/12/12

It’s the start of a new week, which is both good and bad. Good, because it means lots of great new TV, but bad, cause it means it’ll soon be time to go back to work. It’s not time yet, though. We still have the rest of today to relax, and there’s plenty on tonight to help us do just that, so check out what we think you should be watching tonight.

I’m so excited for tonight’s Worst Cooks in America. I loved both seasons before this, with Anne Burrell going up first against Bo MacMillan and then against Robert Irvine. I love Anne, and I was rooting for her in seasons 1 & 2, but I like Bobby Flay, too, so this season, I think I will just have to watch and see who I like best out of the contestants before I declare my favorite…although I have to say, I’m tempted to declare myself Team Bobby, just to mess with Kyle. 😉

If you haven’t seen this show before, it pits Anne against Bobby, each leading a team of eight “recruits” in a grueling eight-week boot camp designed to transform these culinary disaster-makers into competent cooks. A $25,000 grand prize will be awarded to the winning contestant who achieves the most progress and best performance, in addition to bragging rights and victory for their culinary mentor. It’s a lot of fun seeing almost all of the contestants go from horrendous to at least passable, with some even excelling in the kitchen!

On tonight’s episode, “Best of the Worst,” the 16 contestants display their signature dishes to Anne and Bobby in the hopes of making an impression. The Chefs instruct the new candidates on how to effectively prepare a delicious breakfast meal.

Figure out who you are rooting for tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Worst Cooks in America @ Clicker.

There’s not much else on for me tonight, but I will also be watching Cupcake Wars.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/29/12

Whoever said that weekends were for rest didn’t have kids! It’s been one thing after another; however, I did get a great trip to IKEA. I love that store. 🙂 It’s like a happy drug, I swear. Of course, the thing that makes me happiest is new television, so let’s see what you should be watching tonight.

I have noticed a few of my fellow TV journalists being on the fence lately about their love of Once Upon a Time. Well, that’s not me. This girl is over the fence and standing far on the side of LOVING this show. Every week, I find myself pulled deeper and deeper into their world. I was squealing like a school girl when Mary Margaret and David kissed last week. It was amazingly hot. Unfortunately, if the mayor (aka Evil Queen) has anything to say, there is going to be nothing but drama.

On tonight’s episode, “Fruit of the Poisonous Tree,” a dejected Sidney enlists the aid of Emma to help uncover evidence that could expose Mayor Regina as the corrupt person she really is to the townspeople of Storybrooke; and Mary Margaret and David continue their secret rendezvous while trying to figure out a way to unleash their unrequited love. Meanwhile, back in the fairytale land that was, King Leopold (Richard Schiff, The West Wing), who is the father of Snow White and married to the Evil Queen, stumbles upon a magic lamp and is granted three wishes by a Genie – who warns the king to be careful what he wishes for.

To allow your mind to frolic in fairytales tune into ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Once Upon a Time @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/22/12

Last week, I was away for a family vacation in warm, sunny Florida, only to return to 21 degrees and snowing in Massachusetts. While there, we played a lot of mini-golf, and I quickly learned how both fun and stressful it can be hanging out with toddlers 24/7. 🙂 Now, I could use another week off just to catch up on all of last week’s new TV shows that are piled up on my TiVos! Plus, tonight there’s another full lineup of great new episodes to add to the pile! Check out what we think you should watch!

Kyle’s Choice

I have really been enjoying Angry Boys on HBO. Chris Lilley has put together a great new crop of characters for his latest show. Identical twins Daniel and Nathan Sims were my favorite characters from Lilley’s previous series, We Can Be Heroes, so it is great to see them return in this series. The new character of their grandmother, Ruth “Gran” Sims, a guard at a juvenile detention facility, is also hilarious and a great addition to the family. However, my favorite new character has to be Jen Okazaki, the over-zealous and controlling mother of skateboarding superstar Tim, who takes the whole stage mother/manager to absurd levels. This show is is so funny—I love how completely insane and inappropriate it is! We are halfway through and get another double-bill of episodes tonight.

In tonight’s first episode, S.mouse’s disappointing community service at an elementary school creates a desire to get back in the public eye; Daniel’s mom makes him socialize with a gay classmate when she’s fed up with his homophobic slurs; Tim’s relationship with his mom sours as his 16th birthday approaches.

Then, in the second episode, Nathan’s success with girls irks Daniel to no end; Blake gets a visit from an old friend fresh out of jail, but Kareena is less than thrilled when he lends the ex-con his van; Gran gets the boys ready for Family Day at Garingal, and shares a secret with one of the inmates.

See both episodes tonight on HBO at 10/9c & 10:30/9:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Angry Boys @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/15/12

It’s the start of a new week, but for a lot of people, it’s a bit of a short week, since kids are off from school on Monday & some people will be off for work because of Martin Luther King Day. It’s going to be an extra short week for my kiddo, as he has Monday off, then Tuesday his school is off for some school improvement day, and then Thursday is a late start day, so he goes in 2 hours later than normal. *shrug* Anyway, whether you have days off this week or not, settle in to watch some great TV tonight, including what we think you should watch below! But first, I want to mention a few items of interest. Tonight is The 69th Annual Golden Globes on NBC, the season finale of Hell on Wheels on AMC, season premiere of Undercover Boss on CBS, and series premiere of Napoleon Dynamite on FOX, so if those interest you, don’t miss em! (By the way, Kyle is on vacation, so JJ is filling in for him. Everyone say hi!)

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick for what I think you should watch tonight is the season finale of Leverage. It’s been a great season. Hardison and Parker have come a long way, and we had some great stuff between Hardison and Eliot. As always, Nate and Sophie have had their ups and downs. You have to love it, though… They wouldn’t be them if they didn’t! Last week, Tom Skerritt was back as Nate’s father, and when he found himself in front of explosives, he kept Nate safe as the building exploding, killing him. We also found out that the man behind all the suckage is none other than Victor Dubenich, played by Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13), who was the first bad guy on the show back in season 1! That was a twist I didn’t see coming! Will they take him down? Hopefully, we’ll find out tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “The Last Dam Job,” the Leverage team must recruit old friends and rivals in order to take down Latimer and a foe from their past. That would be a great episode title for the series finale, but luckily, it’s already been renewed for another season!

See it tonight on TNT at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Leverage @ Clicker.
