If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/13/13

This has been quite a hectic week for me, and I really can’t wait for the weekend to arrive! It’s Father’s Day on Sunday, and I still haven’t even picked up a card or gift yet. Even with a lot less on TV right now, I have still somehow managed to get my TiVo up to 92% full! And tonight, we’ve got some more TV suggestions to help you fill up your own DVRs! 🙂

Kyle’s Choice #1

racetothescenesmallLast week, Reelz kicked off a new reality competition series called Race to the Scene. Each episode finds three teams of two contestants racing to get through a series of tasks based on famous scenes from blockbuster films. Last week, the contestants had to dress up like Forrest Gump and run, Forrest, run through an obstacle course while wearing leg braces. Once through, they had to eat a box of chocolates until they found the specially filled one. Afterwards, they had to complete tasks based on scenes from Independence Day.

Dolph Lundgren is such a fun host—he dresses up and does his own impressions of the characters from the films while also playfully taunting the contestants as they struggle to get through their tasks. Who knew he was so funny?! I’m interested to see what other movies they take on—and what other impressions Dolph has in his repertoire.

On tonight’s episode, scenes from “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” and “Rush Hour” are featured.

To see if this show is a lot of fun for you, tune in to Reelz at 9/8c.

Interview with Steve Byrne from Sullivan & Son

Comedian & actor Steve Byrne recently spoke to the press about the new season of Sullivan & Son on TBS and his upcoming comedy special. He talked about the new season, about why he thinks the show was a success, and how much of himself comes out in his character. Check out what he had to say in preparation for tonight’s Season 2 premiere.

On the transition from Season 1 to Season 2

stevebyrnecall612asmallSteve Byrne: You know, the first season, we were tying to figure things out, figure out what works with actors and characters. And it’s kind of a, you know, a testing ground. But I think towards the end of the season, we started flushing things out and figuring things out and figuring out our strengths as opposed to our weaknesses.

And we really hit the ground running from the first episode back. And we just filmed a great one last night with Billy Gardell from Mike & Molly, and then it might be my favorite one. Prior to that, I thought the Ken Jeong one was my favorite one. So they just keep getting better and better.

It’s a lot funnier. I mean a lot edgier. We do push the envelope with the show. I should say Hank’s character pushes the envelope with the show. Carol and Owen’s relationship gets pushed to the line quite a bit.

And I’m just really excited about it. I’m really, really, really excited about it. I, you know, I’m really proud of this one. It’s going to be fun.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/13/12

Yesterday, the new iPhone was announced, so that means I’ll probably be staying up late tonight to try to place my pre-order as soon as it’s possible! Fall TV really started to pick up this week, and I’m already way behind—things are piling up on my TiVo. I can’t believe there’s still a couple more weeks of these trickling premieres before everything is in full swing—I don’t know how I’m going to watch it all! To help you decide what to watch tonight, here’s our recommendations.

Kyle’s Choice

Last night’s Big Brother was a super-sized episode. We got the Veto, Eviction, and Head of Household competition all in one night. Ian and Shane were still clueless about Dan’s plotting to get them out of the house. During the Veto competition, Ian was eliminated for not pressing his button, so he assisted Shane in order to ensure that Jenn would remain on the block. Shane won the veto, and for doing so, he also won a special trip outside the house. He chose Danielle as his guest to meet the Fierce Five and watch their gymnastics performance at the Tour of Champions. It was like a first date for the showmance couple, and Danielle fell more in love with him, worrying that she would need to choose between her alliances with Dan and Shane.

Shane, of course, used the veto to pull himself off the block, and Ian put up Danielle in his place. Jenn was voted out unanimously by Dan and Shane, becoming the fifth member of the jury. Danielle won the Head of Household competition and guaranteed herself a spot in the final three. I’m sure she is probably going to nominate Ian and Shane. Dan is willing to do anything and to throw anyone under the bus to make sure he wins. So I hope Ian can win the power of veto and keep himself in the game!

See all the reality drama tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Big Brother @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The X Factor, Glee, Wilfred, Awkward., Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/6/12

I was so excited to get a “save the date” yesterday for Syfy’s annual Digital Press Tour event next month. I’ve never been invited to it before, but it always sounds like a great time. This year, they have moved it to Toronto, and it will include set visits for Warehouse 13 and the upcoming new series Defiance. I can’t wait to report back from that trip. Tonight’s new TV choices are a little slim, but we’ve got recommendations for you to check out. Next week, the fall season really starts to kick in, so enjoy this break before the madness!

On Big Brother, Ian became Head of Household and nominated Jenn and Frank. Last night, it was the veto competition, and Dan conquered Otev’s mountain to win the golden power of veto. He decided to take Jenn off the block, and Ian put up Joe as her replacement.

Both Ian and Frank gave Dan their blessing to use the Veto. I don’t understand why Frank thinks he can get the votes to stay over Joe! I really hope that Frank finally goes home tonight, quickly followed by Joe and Jenn. I would love to see Dan and Ian in the final two, with Ian taking home the prize.

In tonight’s live episode, either Frank or Joe will be evicted from the house. Plus, it’s another double-eviction episode, where a whole week’s worth of Big Brother will be played in one hour, leaving us with the final five.

See who goes home tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Big Brother @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Rookie Blue, Collection Intervention, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/30/12

Good gravy, who turned up the heat?? I don’t know about you, but I’m not digging the hundred degree temperature outside again! I thought we were finished. I suppose it could be worse, though… At least I haven’t been in Isaac’s path! Still like yesterday, I’ll be planted on my couch in front of the TV tonight with the fan on. You?

Jenny’s Choice

You know, I realized something as I was thinking of what to write up for this post. I tend to really love shows that are just…wrong. lol There are some shows (comedies…) that are just so WRONG, they’re right. Raising Hope is a good example of a network comedy like that. But tonight, I wanted to recommend Sullivan & Son on TBS. The jokes and characters can be racist and stereotypical, but it makes me laugh. I find it amusing when it’s ON TELEVISION. I certainly don’t make those jokes in real life, and when I hear them, I don’t laugh. But on TV? the show just cracks me up. Maybe it’s wrong, but…I’m ok with that. haha

On tonight’s episode, “How Carol Got Her Groove Back,” Carol falls into a funk when she learns she’s going through menopause. In an attempt to convince Carol she’s still attractive, Ahmed crosses a line.

Laugh along with me tonight on TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Sullivan & Son @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Rookie Blue, The American Bible Challenge, Beat the Chefs, & Extreme Chef.
