If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/11/12

Fridays are normally kind of slow, but tonight is definitely an exception, because not only are there five season finales tonight, there are also several other great episodes to round out our work week. There are so many, in fact, that Megan & I both just couldn’t leave it at one recommendation…and I couldn’t limit mine to two! *laugh* So read on to find out what we think you should be watching tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight is the finale of The Finder…for several reasons. First, I love the show. Second, I love when series star Geoff Stults and his brother George guest star on the other’s series (Geoff guest starred on 7th Heaven a couple of times when George was starring. Loved that. lol). And finally…well, it was announced this week that the show has been canceled. So tonight is going to be the last episode. Very sad for those of us that enjoy it!. On the last episode, it was a lot of fun seeing how each of the characters dealt with all the voodoo stuff. It was all sorts of craziness. First, Isabel was shot during a gang shootout at a funeral, in which a priest was killed and her partner on the stakeout was shot. One of the gang members then comes to Walter and asks him to find a voodoo doll that someone made of him. Isabel told him he had to do it, but Leo refused to participate (until later, when Walter himself was shot…). Luckily, a protection medal made for Walter by the “good witch” Willa brought to them earlier in the case saved him, and he was hurt but ok. Again, it was a fun episode because of the way everyone reacted to the voodoo and witchcraft aspects. 🙂

The biggest question for me going into tonight’s finale is Willa. All season, it’s been gearing up to her having to marry Timo. I can’t see the show letting that happen, so how will she get out of it? Will she wise up and say “Screw you!” to her gypsy family for good? By the way, if you are on Twitter, you should be following series creator & all around funny guy, @HartHanson. Tell him I sent you. 😉

On tonight’s series finale, “The Boy with the Bucket,” when Walter’s older brother Langston (guest star George Stults) comes to town, he asks Walter to visit their dying father (guest star John Ashton, Gone Baby Gone). As his dying wish, his father asks Walter to find his first love, Walter and Langston’s mother (guest star Annette O’Toole, Smallville). Taking on the most important search of his life, Walter battles obstacles which may prove to be insurmountable as his father’s health rapidly declines. Meanwhile, Willa is being forced to marry Timo by their Uncle Shadrack.

Check it out tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Finder @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/4/12

Friday is that day of the week that we all look forward to because it’s the start of the weekend – and what a weekend it’s going to be. I’m going to be designated driver on Saturday for a Stag and Doe party; I will be going armed with garbage bags, water, and gravol, just in case. (Eww… I hate drunk people.) Anyway, tonight, I will be kicking back and relaxing, watching some excellent television. Let’s see what we think you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

Grimm is one of those shows that makes my world a better place. I love getting lost in the plots, and there’s nothing I enjoy more than the mythology of the creatures. The writing is entertaining with just enough humour to balance out the drama and violence. If you haven’t given this supernatural show a chance, you have been missing out on so much. The twisted plots, a sexy cast, and just a general good time; your Friday nights won’t seem as “grim” if you tune in to watch.

On tonight’s episode, “Happily Ever Aftermath,” this classic Cinderella tale takes a very dark turn; Nick and Hank are called to investigate the mysterious death of a wealthy matriarch after her stepdaughter loses everything in a Ponzi scheme. Meanwhile, Juliette does some digging into the mysterious death of Nick’s parents in an effort to help him find closure.

To see what happens after the happily ever after, tune in to NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grimm @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching and recording Supernatural, CSI: NY, Blue Bloods, The Finder, and Fairly Legal.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/27/12

Ugh, another week of being sick. So not fun. But it’s been another great week of new TV (albeit a little slow) and tonight is no exception. There’s some great stuff on, so let’s get to it!

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s Nikita was fantastic. Nikita herself went up against an old foe, and for a bit, it looked like he was going to get the best of her. Then Michael gave himself up to save her, and just when the two of them were fighting him for their lives, Sean and Alex rushed in. Sean got the ultimate revenge for his mother’s death by shooting him dead. The guy was scary because he had zero adgenda except for revenge…to make Nikita hurt as much as she’d made him hurt. All of it served to make Nikita think that she was too dark and too much like Percy – enjoying the pain and suffering she inflicts upon others – to be a good person. The scene at the end with Michael and Nikita was fantastic for Mikita shippers. And once again, Nikita laid down the law with Percy, telling him she was coming for him.

On tonight’s episode, “Shadow Walker,” Nikita convinces a reluctant Birkhoff to use 20 million dollars of his own money in a plan to bankrupt Percy and Division, but when Percy ends up stealing Birkhoff’s entire life savings, Birkhoff and Nikita clash. Team Nikita has one last chance to hit Percy again, but Birkhoff is arrested trying to regain his millions and Nikita realizes she must break him out of jail before Division gets to him. Michael and Alex go after Birkhoff’s stolen money while Nikita goes to save Birkhoff.

Don’t miss it tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Nikita @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing The Finder, CSI: NY, Fairly Legal, Grimm, Melissa & Tye, & Blue Bloods.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/20/12

Thank God it’s Friday (& 4/20 at that. 😉 )… That’s all I have to say. We’re gearing up for the end of this season. You can tell because a lot of shows are taking a week or two off before May sweeps and the last run of new episodes for the 2011-2012 season. I’m going to be looking into switching cable companies (we’ve been with AT&T U-Verse for years now, but we’re getting tired of how much we’re paying, and my husband hasn’t been happy with the speed of the internet for a while…), but I have to figure out the best time to do it. The break between end of this season & start of most of the summer shows is perfect. Anyway, on to what we think you should be watching tonight, regardless of who your TV & internet comes from! 😉

The last new episode of Nikita was 3 weeks ago, and it was a whopper. Through a crazy, awesome plan involving Nikita, Michael, Birkoff, Alex took control of her father’s company, later passing control to one of the men she trusted. That meant Ari (and subsequently, Amanda) was out on his ass, and now he & Amanda (who, by the way, had a couple of f***-awesome scenes with Nikita, where they each could have killed the other but didn’t…) are on the run with a black box. With Amanda ousted from Division, Percy is back in charge there. It’s a crazy time, man. Crazy. This week promises to be even crazier, judging by the episode description & preview!

On tonight’s episode, “Wrath,” when Nikita worked for Division, she targeted a man named Nicholas Brandt (guest star Rick Ravanello) and infiltrated his inner circle. She captured him, and he’s been behind bars ever since. However, Percy springs Brant, and his first mission is to capture Nikita for payback. After he has her in his clutches, he tortures her, forcing Nikita to face a side of herself she thought she had long buried. Meanwhile, Percy continues to play mind games with Michael, Alex, and Sean, pushing one of them to the brink of death.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/30/12

TGIF! In Canada, Mother Nature is messed up lately. It was unseasonably, warm but now it’s practically snowing today, so I think that Father Time must have pissed off Mother Nature and we’re paying for it! To help you deal with the drama that comes from all this weather, sit back and enjoy some new shows. Let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

It’s been a bit since an all new episode of Grimm, so I’m extra excited for tonight’s episode. When we left Nick, he was facing some relationship issues with Juliette: she was tired of his job and the stress it brings. I couldn’t be happier at the prospect of Juliette leaving, because she annoys the hell out of me. Nick just needs to focus on being the best Grimm he can be and enjoy his bromance with Monroe. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Island of Dreams,” Nick and Monroe investigate the murder of a spice-shop owner, and the victim’s sister may prove to be an ally for Nick. Captain Renard recruits Adalind to hex Hank; Sgt. Wu gets caught up in Adalind’s scheme.

To see if Nick and Monroe can solve this crime and if Hank is ever useful, tune in to NBC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grimm @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching and recording Supernatural, CSI: NY, and Blue Bloods.
