If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/17/15

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 #1

izombiesmallAnyone who knows me knows I’m a huge Veronica Mars fan, so when I learned that Rob Thomas had created a new show called iZombie, I was in, regardless of the subject matter. Thankfully, the story itself seems like it’ll be a lot of fun. Rose McIver stars as Olivia “Liv” Moore (*snicker* Live more?), a medical resident who was suddenly turned into a zombie. She transfers to the city morgue for the easy access to brains, breaks things off with her soul mate (played by the sexy Robert Buckley from One Tree Hill), and tries to “live” her life as best she can. Then she figures out that with every brain she eats, she gets “visions,” which turn out to be the corpse’s memories, so with the encouragement of her boss, she works with a newbie homicide detective, using those “visions” to help solve the murders of those people whose brains she consumed.

Sounds fun, right? I hope so… I’m not a huge fan of shows on The CW. The only ones I watch every episode of are Whose Line Is It Anyway and Penn & Teller: Fool Us—I haven’t watched a non-reality show on The CW since One Tree Hill. So I’m *hoping* I like this one enough to stick with it. If anyone can make me do that, it’s Rob Thomas. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Robert Buckley and David Anders (who will always be Julian Stark from Alias to me) are on the show as well. Hellooooo, eye candy! 😉 I really love them both in everything I’ve seen them in, so…) Also starring are Aly Michalka, Malcolm Goodwin, Molly Hagan, & Rahul Kohli.

Kyle did a press room interview for the show, which you can view on his site, NoReruns.net.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” an overachieving medical resident who recently became a zombie transfers her residency to the city morgue, where she feeds on brains, but every time she does, she experiences some of the corpse’s memories, sometimes providing clues to how they died.

Meet a new kind of zombies tonight on The CW at 9/8c.

rizzoliisles310smallI’m really enjoying this second half of season 5 of Rizzoli & Isles. Last week, on the personal side of things, Jane was worried about her mom’s spending habits being out of control now that she had a new job. And with Angela getting three new credit cards and spending quite a bit like she was, I could see why Jane was worried. After Maura (at Jane’s behest) stepped in and tried to talk to Angela about it, Angela busted Maura on her own binge spending. The difference, to me, is that Maura can clearly afford it. She isn’t living beyond her means, even if she does spend way too much shopping for things that do nothing but sit in a closet. Still, in the end, Angela cut up two of the cards, promised that she would be responsible while still splurging every so often, and helped Maura pare down her closeted things. On the case side, Jane and Korsak investigated when a “green” clothing designer was killed. During their investigation, they thought at first that the victim was into something shady, then thought his wife was, but in the end, both of them were innocent. Then they thought they’d found the murderer when they came across the van that had been seen speeding away from the crime scene and a smell was coming from it, but it turned out to be filled with trash a PI had gathered as part of his cases. And that PI turned out to be innocent and actually a big help with not only finding the victim’s killer but getting him to confess. (And of course it turned out to be all about drugs…) I adored the PI because the chemistry between him & Jane was phenomenal. I do hope he comes back!

Next week is the 2-hour season finale, which makes me very sad. 🙁 But it’s already been renewed for season 6, so I’m happy about that! I just wish we didn’t have to wait several months at least for it to come back!

On tonight’s episode, “In Plain View,” after a man is found bludgeoned to death on the side of the road, Jane and the squad team up with another detective who believes he is hunting the same roadside killer. Meanwhile, Maura discovers she has had her identity stolen and recruits Angela to help track down the culprit.

See if Angela can find the identity thief and if the squad can catch the killer tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Hell’s Kitchen, NCIS, Repeat After Me, 19 Kids & Counting, Married at First Sight: the First Year, NCIS: NOLA, Chicago Fire, Chopped, Restaurant Startup, & Cougar Town.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/17/15

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 #1

rizzoliandisles217smallMy first pick tonight is the winter premiere of Rizzoli & Isles. This season has been really rough. The team learned about Frost’s death and Jane was dealing with her pregnancy when she ended up losing the baby during a case gone bad. Meanwhile, Maura’s relationship with her professor boyfriend is really going well, and before the break, she met his 12-year-old daughter, which went well. Jane and the team are still reeling from Frost’s death, and things are up in the air with Angela, who quit her job and broke up with Cavanaugh to start fresh (sounds like a midlife crisis to me, but whatever…). It’ll be interesting to see how the last three episodes of the season go from here. (By the way… Why take a winter break and then have to come back for only three episodes?? Why not just finish airing them with the others??)

On tonight’s episode, “Bridge to Tomorrow,” after Jane jumps from a bridge to save a prosecutor suspected of his murdering his mistress, Maura is terrified that she has lost her best friend. The squad must now renew the search to find the real killer. Meanwhile, Angela enlists Frankie’s help as she applies to new jobs.

See how Jane survives jumping from the bridge tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

Ugh. Finally, maybe, on the mend. Still hacking up a lung, but don’t feel nearly as bad. While I curl up on the couch tonight, check out what I’ll be watching, as well as what Kyle is recommending.

Jenny’s Choice

rizzoliandislessmallThere’s so much on tonight that I literally had trouble scheduling it all on my DVR, but one thing I won’t miss for anything is the mid-season finale for Rizzoli & Isles. Last week, there was a heat wave going on in Boston, and I know a lot of us have been there…where you’re so hot, you feel like you could murder someone. Well, there was a victim, although he wasn’t killed over the heat. His body was stuck in a bathtub with ice, although in that heat, the ice didn’t last long. It did make for a harder job for Maura as she tried to determine the time of death. The funniest part of the episode, though, was Angela and her spicy “health” drink, which had an intended consequence… It turned the drinker horny. *laugh* Maura only figured it out after the little dog Korsak was watching drank it and started humping legs. LOL

On tonight’s summer finale, “Burden of Proof,” a notable county prosecutor (guest star Jamie Bamber) is arrested for murder, and as the case against him grows increasingly strong, Jane begins to doubt he did it. Angela nominates herself to educate Maura on the interests of kids today when she hears Maura is going to meet Jack’s 12-year-old daughter.

See how the meet-and-greet goes for Maura and if Jane is being fooled tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Food Fighters, 19 Kids & Counting, America’s Got Talent, Royal Pains, Chopped, Little People Big World, Sullivan & Son, & Wizard Wars.

What a crazy night last night was for TV. MasterChef was intense. If you didn’t watch, you’re missing out! As for tonight, there’s some great stuff on, so check out our recommendations!

Jenny’s Choice

rizzoli&isles819smallLast week on Rizzoli & Isles, I thought for sure Jane was going to become a foster mom to the homeless teenage girl from the previous episode, but I wasn’t shocked or even really unhappy when she set up the nurse to foster her instead. It was a great fit. You could see the happiness and relief on the girl’s face when the nurse started to “mom” her. Jane, meanwhile, didn’t know what to think or how to feel about losing her baby. She was obviously sad, but it seemed like she was in shock and kind of numb more than anything. I did love seeing all the love everyone gave her when they came to visit in the hospital. On the case side of things, it was very sad and very interesting…the mummified corpse of a woman who was so secluded and so distanced from everyone around her that (almost) no one knew she wasn’t still alive. So sad. 🙁

On tonight’s episode, “Phoenix Rising,” Korsak is involved in the investigation of an exceedingly cold case, so the team steps in to try to provide him some assistance. Jane decides to take some unorthodox means in order to stay involved with daily occurrences at the office.

See how Jane keeps in touch tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Food Fighters, America’s Got Talent, Next Great Baker, Royal Pains, Chopped, Restaurant Startup, Sullivan & Son, & Wizard Wars.
