If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/30/13

Tomorrow is Halloween, which is really my least favorite holiday, but I will put my big girl pants on and take my little ones trick-or-treating, because that’s what parents do. In preparation for the chaos that is trick-or-treating tomorrow, I’m going to relax and watch some great new television, so let’s see what we should all be watching.

Megan’s Choice

superfunnight1030smallSuper Fun Night really is super fun! Last week, we met Kimmie’s mom and sister, and what a family that is. Between the bikini engagement party and the mother/daughters dance they did, I was in hysterics. Kimmie is still feeling awkward around Richard after her admitting she likes him, but her mom made things more awkward by inviting him to the party. I’m really interested to see where they go with the friendship with Richard and Kimmie from now, and when they’re going to allow Kimmie to meet a guy who is interested.

On tonight’s episode, “Go with Glorg,” an alcohol-fueled night out leads to Kimmie gaining new insight about Kendall; Helen-Alice and Marika meet their idol, the actress who plays Murna Princess Warrior (guest star Brooke Shields).

To see what insight Kimmie has gained, tune in to ABC at 9:30/8:30c.

I’ll also be watching Criminal Minds, CSI, Back in the Game, The Tomorrow People, American Horror Story: Coven, and Restaurant: Impossible.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/13

Well, my kid has bronchitis. Fun stuff. He stayed home from school yesterday, but he’s on antibiotics, so he’s back at school tomorrow. Hopefully the meds work fast, but even if he isn’t feeling great, there’s lots of stuff to watch tonight to help him relax. Here’s our recommendations. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

criminalminds1016smallLast week’s Criminal Minds was intense and really quite interesting. A sniper was shooting up Dallas, and it took a little bit, but the team finally figured out who the real targets were and why. I have to say that the husband running into the street and getting hit by the bus was kind of cool, in a gruesome way. And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. The one thing I was confused about was a) how did Hotch get up to the woman’s apartment before the rest of the team made it up to the apartment the sniper was sitting in? Speaking of the sniper, it was pretty wild that his relationship with the woman was all in his mind, a way to keep himself awake while he waited for his opportunity.

I’m excited about tonight’s episode because we finally get to meet the new section chief, played by Esai Morales. He and JJ have some sort of history—something to do with her time away from the BAU, I think? It’ll be interesting to see that relationship, and I’m definitely interested to see how he fits in with the team. Strauss started off as the antagonist, and while she wasn’t besties with the team by the time she died, she’d certainly redeemed herself a whole whopping lot. So will he be supportive or argumentative with them? I’m anxious to find out.

On tonight’s episode, “To Bear Witness,” the BAU meets their new section chief, Mateo Cruz, who, unbeknownst to them, shares a long work history with JJ. Cruz joins the team as they comb the streets of Baltimore for an UnSub who leaves victims unable to communicate. David Anders guest stars.

See how the new section chief fits in tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Back in the Game, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, The Tomorrow People, CSI, Top Chef, Ironside, Mystery Diners, & Thieves, Inc..

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/9/13

I don’t know what I did to my wrist Monday night while I was sleeping, but it hurt all day Tuesday. But that’s okay, because Tuesday night TV is my favorite this season (followed closely by Monday), so I had lots to watch to keep me occupied! Tonight is another great night of television, so check out what we’re recommending (& welcome back Kyle! 🙂 ).

Jenny’s Choice #1

tomorrowpeople109smallMy first pick tonight is the series premiere of The Tomorrow People on the CW. The “Tomorrow People” is a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities. Stephen Jameson was a “normal” teenager up until a year ago, until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep. The Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. The show stars Robbie Amell (Revenge) as Stephen, Luke Mitchell (H20: Just Add Water) as John, Peyton List (Mad Men) as Cara, Aaron Yoo (Disturbia, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) as Russell, Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural) as Dr. Jedikiah Price, and Madeleine Mantock (upcoming All You Need is Kill) as Astrid.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Stephen questions his sanity when he starts hearing voices and waking up in unusual places; a voice in Stephen’s head leads him to a genetically advanced race known as the Tomorrow People.

Find out if this new sci-fi/supernatural drama is for you tonight on the CW at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/2/13

My 2-year-old son, Pherson, has just discovered television, and he’s hooked. I have to limit it, but my goodness, when I put The Voice or any cooking show on during the day, he just sits down and watches along with me. It’s really cute and makes me oddly proud (don’t judge…I love TV). Maybe I can use this newfound love of TV to help potty train him—it’s a thought! While I ponder my child-rearing issues, let’s see what’s on tonight.

Megan’s Choice

criminalminds102smallWhen my kids are asleep, it’s time for grown-up shows, and my favorite by far is still Criminal Minds. This is one of those shows that makes me nervous, happy, sad, and shocked all at the same time. Last week, the case was just incredibly creepy. When that guy pulled the head out at the restaurant, I literally almost puked. Wow, that was intense. I am interested to see who ends up running what job in the unit now that Hotch is thinking about taking over for Strauss—but I have a feeling that there will be another outsider brought in to make us feel the stress of a shake up again. Whatever happens, it’s guaranteed to be amazing television.

On tonight’s episode, “The Inspired,” the BAU closes in on the serial killer suspect in Arizona and discovers a strange connection within the Unsub’s family.

To see what happens in Arizona, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Back in the Game, Law & Order: SVU, The X Factor, Duck Dynasty, Super Fun Night, Ironside, and Survivor.

Pilot Watch 2013 – ABC

We’ve done the FOX & CBS pilots, but now, Megan, Kyle, and I are back to talk about the ABC pilots for the 2013 season. We’ve each rated them as Watch, Maybe, or Skip, so check out what we have to say. (On a side note, a screener of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wasn’t available, but it premieres 9/24, and we all think it’s a watch, regardless of whether or not we’ve seen the pilot. 😉 )

Back in the Game (Premieres 9/25)

backinthegamesmallJenny: Really cute, really funny. James Caan is great as the gruff, rough, tough, beer-guzzling father/grandfather. Maggie Lawson’s character is fun, watching her trying to balance being a good mom—and the complete opposite of her father—and trying to keep her father from treating her son like he did her. The kids are a lot of fun in this one. I can’t wait to see more. – Watch

Megan: This was a great pilot—lots of laughs, and the acting was strong. It had a good vibe to the show overall, and I foresee lots of great moments with James Caan and Maggie Lawson. This is definitely one of the best new fall comedies. – Watch

Kyle: James Caan and Maggie Lawson have great chemistry—I found it very believable that these two could be father and daughter. The show is a nice blend of heart and humor. While the pilot wasn’t as laugh-out-loud funny as I had hoped, I still have high hopes for the series, and I think it makes a great addition to the Wednesday ABC comedy lineup. I’m not sure how they will keep it fresh each week—there’s only so many times you can go to that Bad News Bears well before the team of misfit kids needs to get a win—but I’m looking forward to seeing more. – Watch
