If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/12/11

It’s really weird to go to sleep feeling perfectly fine, and wake up at 7:00 in the morning so stuffed up, you can’t breathe through your nose. Thirty-six hours later, I still feel like utter crap. lol Dunno what is going on, but this cold or sinus problem has GOT to go! I’m not so sick I can’t enjoy TV, though, and there’s lots of great stuff on tonight to keep a viewer (sick or not) entertained. So read on to see what we think you should be watching tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

I know I’ve said it before, but I must repeat it: If you aren’t watching The Defenders because you think, “Jim Belushi? Really?”, trust me, he’s nothing like his character on his last show, According to Jim (which I loved, but I know a lot of people didn’t). Please, just give it a shot. I assumed from the promos and pictures before the show ever started that the show would be more jokey comedy with exaggerated … I dunno, goofiness and not focused so much on the cases and seriousness. I was wrong. Yes, the show definitely has a lot of comedic moments, but Belushi and O’Connell have a fantastic chemistry, the supporting cast is great, and the cases and stories are funny, serious, heartwarming, and everything in between. The show tackles everything from strippers charged with prostitution, to murders, and tonight’s episode, the he said/she said of a rape case.

The promos for tonight’s episode look like it will be a very emotional episode, with a smattering of humor thrown in on the side, which is what the show does best: making you feel more than one emotion every episode. On tonight’s show, Nick is prompted to defend a 21-year-old man whom he has personal ties with after a victim identifies him as her attacker in a sexual assault case; Pete is a little stunned at the fact that he has to attend jury duty.

Check out the promo for what is sure to be a fantastic episode of The Defenders, and then catch the new episodes tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Defenders @ Clicker.
