If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/1/15

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!

Kyle’s Choice

unreal61smallTonight, Lifetime premieres its new scripted series UnREAL, which follows the behind-the-scenes drama of a fictitious Bachelor-like reality show called Everlasting, where a group of woman compete to win the heart of handsome, rich Brit Adam Cromwell (Freddie Stroma, Pitch Perfect). The series stars Shiri Appleby (Roswell, Life Unexpected) as Rachel Goldberg, a young producer who had a meltdown the prior season, but her amazing ability to manipulate the contestants has series creator Chet (Craig Bierko, Cinderella Man) welcoming her back. And to make things more awkward for her, Rachel’s ex, Jeremy (Josh Kelly, One Life to Live), is a cameraman for the show, and his new fiancée is on-set makeup artist Lizzie (Siobhan Williams, Black Box). The executive producer of Everlasting, Quinn King (Constance Zimmer, Entourage), is ruthless and demands that her staff does anything and everything to create drama, make the contestants fill their assigned character roles and build the show’s narrative.

I’ve seen the first three episodes, and I would have watched more had they been available — I was instantly fascinated, entertained, and completely sucked in. I have never seen an episode of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, but I’ve seen enough reality TV to be able to really relate to what’s going on. UnREAL is a very dark, shocking series — it is absolutely despicable some of the things these producers do to manipulate the contestants and build the desired narrative! The show will have you questioning just how real the drama is on your favorite “reality” shows and wondering what is really going on just outside of the camera’s view. I highly recommend checking this show out tonight.

On tonight’s premiere, “Return,” a producer, Rachel Goldberg, works to manipulate relationships on a dating show in order to film outrageous footage as the series begins.

Don’t miss the fun premiere tonight on Lifetime at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Whispers, The Island, Turn, and Devious Maids.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/3/14

What a week it’s been, and it’s only Wednesday! I shudder to think what the rest of the week will be like, seeing as this was supposed to be the easy days. Note to self: there are no easy days when it involves prying children from their beds for school, but it’s worth it because they’re learning. (Yeah, I almost believed it myself.) Now, let’s take a look at what we’re recommending tonight to distract me from my morning duties of getting kids off to be educated.

Megan’s Choice

sytycd2014smallIt’s that time again on So You Think You Can Dance. Time to crown the winner, that is. What a season it’s been, with two amazing tap dancers making it to the finals, along with two more incredible contemporary dancers. How will America choose? The way I would, I hope. I would love to see either Ricky or Valerie win because they have been two of my favorites from the beginning. Their routines last week were all stellar, and it definitely made the race even closer. What about you? Who are you rooting for?

On tonight’s season 11 finale, guest judges Jenna Dewan Tatum, Debbie Allen, Tara Lipinski, and Adam Shankman return to help crown the winner. Enrique Iglesias and Sean Paul are scheduled to perform during the two-hour live event.

To see if your vote helped your favorite take home the title, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching America’s Got Talent, Fool’s Gold, Wahlburgers, and Restaurant: Impossible.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/30/14

Wednesday, which means mid-week. That’s a good thing. Although my Tuesday was good, so I’m not stressing the week so far. In case you are, though, here are a few recommendations to help ease the way into the second half of the week. (By the way… Welcome back, Kyle! Hope you had fun at SDCC!)

Jenny’s Choice #1

hotincleveland730smallTonight should be a fun episode of Hot in Cleveland. Last week was great, too. Victoria had a visit from the son she always forgets, played by Glee’s Chris Colfer. He showed up with his partner, only we learned while Victoria was out of the room that he wasn’t really gay. He’d only told Victoria that to make her love him more. He was back because he wanted her backing for something he and his business partner were involved in. Watching the two of them pretend to be gay (the partner was all for it when Victoria announced she was giving them both new sports cars for their wedding. LOL) was great. In the end, Victoria and Tony had a heartfelt talk about why he chose to live with his father instead of her. The other great story line was Joy and Mitch going to preemptive counseling, and the therapist told them that they weren’t compatible. In the end, they realized they had a lot in common and the therapist got his compatibility quiz from those “Which Disney character are you?” type quizzes. It was great.

On tonight’s episode, “The Animated Episode,” the women finally see Elka’s apartment, which before now has been a mystery to them…and they soon find out why. From there, they meet up with Steven Tyler (and some other special friends) and go on a psychedelic romp through pop culture hits, including scenes with homages to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, The Walking Dead, and Frankenstein. Plus, they see what life in Cleveland would have been like if LeBron James had never left.

Check out the first-ever animated episode on TV Land at 10/9c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/9/14

It’s been a very active summer so far, and I’m loving it. We’ve been doing lots of fishing and going swimming a lot, but at the end of the day, I look forward to some great new television. There’s been quite a few shows that are really hitting it out of the park this summer season, so let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice

sytycd2014smallLast week, So You Think You Can Dance absolutely blew me away with the level of talent the top 20 displayed. Ricky and Jessica were incredible. Their contemporary routine, choreographed by Sonya, was just mesmerizing. I also enjoyed Teddy and Emilio, but mostly because I really like Emilio and I’m rooting for him to go far. The people I think are in danger of being eliminated are Jackie or Jourdan, because their routine was forgettable. Whatever the results, I’m looking forward to seeing what else this season has to offer.

On tonight’s episode, the Top 20 perform again and then two are eliminated.

To see who makes it through to next week, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Big Brother, Extant, Taxi Brooklyn, and The Bridge.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/11/14

It’s been a couple of days filled with sickness in my house, but I’m hoping it’s over now. One thing is for sure: I’m going to spend tonight on my couch with a blanket watching some good TV. Let’s see what we’re recommending to keep us all happy.

Megan’s Choice

sytycd2014smallWe’re a couple of weeks into this season of So You Think You Can Dance, and what a season it’s been so far. I loved having a dancer with the caliber of Fabrice Calmels on as a judge, because he brought a level of ballet expertise to the panel. However, as usual, Christina Applegate’s guest judge appearance was fabulous. She just lights up the screen, and the way she is moved by the dancers is phenomenal. Last week’s episode had me in tears again, so if that’s how this season continues to go, Kleenex is going to have a lot of sales world-wide.

On tonight’s episode, “Auditions #3,” the search for “America’s Favorite Dancer” heads to Los Angeles and Philadelphia.

To see how the dancers move us tonight, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The 100, Growing Up Fisher, Restaurant: Impossible, Graceland, Suits, and American Pickers.
