If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/26/11

We survived! That’s right, you made it through the family get together, the crazy kids, the screaming, but most of all, the love. Hard to believe we’re moving towards New Year’s already. I am looking forward to 2012, especially because it means there is new television. 🙂 Tonight has a few new things to watch, so check our sugguestions.

After the holidays, it’s nice just to kick back, relax, and watch my Next Great Baker. Last week’s Christmas-themed cakes were beautiful, I am really enjoying how many strong female competitors there are this season. I enjoy the strong women on this season of the show and really hope they can keep it up—with the exception of Minerva. I find her super aggravating and can’t wait for her to go home.

On this week’s new episode, it’s one of the most fun episodes of this series—the engineered cakes; the cakes need to spin, smoke, move and spark.

To see if they manage to get rid of Minerva this week, tune in to TLC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Leverage @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/28/11

Did everyone have a good holiday & break from work/school? We had a great visit up in Iowa with my husband’s family, although I hate traveling in general. I was glad to be back home and in my own bed! Today, we started preparing for Christmas, actually figuring out what we already have and what we still need to buy. Lots to go, unfortunately. So what little new TV is on this week, I’m going to be glad to see, just to give me something to relax to and forget all the holiday preparation! You?

Jenny’s Choice

One of my favorite new shows in the last few years is last season’s Rizzoli & Isles on TNT. I’ve always loved Angie Harmon, and the role of Jane Rizzoli is perfect for her. She has phenomenal chemistry with Sasha Alexander, who plays Medical Examiner Maura Isles. The show is based on the book series by Tess Gerritsen, which I love. Rizzoli is a homicide cop, gruff around the edges, but damn good at what she does. She’s joined by her mother, played by the amazing Lorraine Bracco, and brother, Jordan Bridges, as well as fellow police officers, Bruce McGill & Lee Thompson Young. It’s a fun cop show, with a great hook of having the two best friends working so closely in the same field. Tonight is the first new episode in two months, and I’m excited, because it’s appointment TV.

On tonight’s episode, “Can I Get a Witness?” a witness agrees to testify against a gang member after a community activist is gunned down; TV host Bill O’Reilly criticizes the police department. Roselyn Sanchez (Without a Trace) guest stars.

Check it out tonight on TNT at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rizzoli & Isles @ Clicker.
