If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/3/11

I’m so excited it’s Monday. There is SO much fantastic TV on tonight, from the 2-hour season finale of Warehouse 13 to new episodes of some new fan favorites like Terra Nova & Hart of Dixie and some old, like Castle and Hawaii Five-0. So what do we think you should watch? Check it out below and find out!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I am both excited and sad about tonight’s Warehouse 13. I’m excited, because it’s going to be a great 2 hours, but I’m sad, because it’s the last 2 hours of the show for a while. Stupid season finales! lol This season has been leading up to what should be a fantastic episode. In fact, in the interview with star Eddie McClintock, he said one of the sound guys told him they were the best episodes of the series. Eddie also said they had really raised the stakes this year for the final 2 episodes, so I’m beyond excited to see them!

On tonight’s finale, “Emily Lake/Stand,” Pete and Myka attempt to follow the trail of a top-secret file that was stolen from the Warehouse, and their investigation leads them to a high school in Wyoming where H.G. Wells is working as a teacher named Emily Lake. They must race to stop Sykes from using his own cache of artifacts to destroy them and the Warehouse.

See the 2-hour finale tonight on Syfy at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Warehouse 13 @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/26/11

Take a deep breath in and out. Again. Don’t panic. Yes, there are a lot of shows on, but you can handle it. Your DVR may implode, but you’ll be fine. *laugh* It’s seriously crazy, I know! But I am so damn glad we’ve got all this great TV on! What new shows have you watched? Which have you enjoyed so far? One new series I really enjoyed was Poppy Montgomery’s Unforgettable. But there are a lot I really liked and can’t wait to see more of, so… Let’s see what’s on this week to make us happy, huh? – Jenny

Team Choice

There is one show that Megan, Kyle, and I all wanted to recommend, and rather than splitting it up into 3 separate choices, we decided to combine it. FOX’s Terra Nova looks like it’ll be one of the most exciting shows on network television in a while. From FOX: “Terra Nova follows an ordinary family on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a daring experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149, the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped and overcrowded, with the majority of plant and animal life extinct. The future of mankind is in jeopardy, and its only hope for survival is in the distant past. The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first colony established in this beautiful yet foreboding land. The show stars Jason O’Mara (Life on Mars), Stephen Lang (Avatar), and Christine Adams (TRON: Legacy), along with Shelley Conn (Mistresses), Landon Liboiron (Degrassi: The Next Generation), Allison Miller (Kings), Naomi Scott (Life Bites), Alana Mansour. Read on to find out why we think you should watch.

Jenny: Dinosaurs! Beautiful scenery! Interesting storylines! Seriously, the show seems to have it all. I love a show that can combine elements of every genre, from science fiction/fantasy, to drama, to comedy. The show was shot in Australia, so you know before you even see it that the setting is going to be gorgeous. The promos have been interesting, letting us know that this new world is not the Utopia you would think. Be sure and check out our Jason O’Mara interview for more!

Megan: I just had to suggest Terra Nova, even though Kyle and Jenny are both also suggesting it. You can’t have too much of a good thing, and Terra Nova is a really good thing. I loved the pilot. It was seriously epic. The show isn’t just about dinosaurs, or adventure; it’s about family and struggles. There’s nothing more heartbreaking than being a parent, and watching the sacrifices these parents have to make for their children to survive is moving. That said, it’s not all drama. There’s a touch of humour and lots of adventure. You’d be a fool to miss out on this new, and sure to be hit drama.

Kyle: Tonight’s Terra Nova premiere is feature film quality, giving us some excellent Jurassic Park style Dino action and an interesting premise. I could also see some influences from some of my favorite TV shows, such as Stargate and the third season of Lost. The premiere also sets up some great story arcs and mysteries that I can’t wait to see explored.

Do not miss the 2-hour series premiere tonight on FOX at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Terra Nova @ Clicker.

Interview with Jason O’Mara from Terra Nova

I recently got the chance to speak to Jason O’Mara, star of the new FOX drama, Terra Nova. Jason also starred in the short lived series Life on Mars, as well as In Justice & The Agency.

Terra Nova follows an ordinary family on an incredible journey back in time to prehistoric Earth as a small part of a daring experiment to save the human race. In the year 2149, the world is dying. The planet is overdeveloped and overcrowded, with the majority of plant and animal life extinct. The future of mankind is in jeopardy, and its only hope for survival is in the distant past. The series centers on the Shannon family as they join the Tenth Pilgrimage of settlers to Terra Nova, the first colony established in this beautiful yet foreboding land.

The future of mankind is in jeopardy, and its only hope for survival is in the distant past. Upon the Shannons’ arrival, they are introduced to Commander Nathaniel Taylor (Stephen Lang, Avatar), the charismatic and heroic first pioneer and leader of the settlement. Taylor warns the travelers that while Terra Nova is a place of new opportunities and fresh beginnings, all is not as idyllic as it initially appears. Along with blue skies, towering waterfalls and lush vegetation, the surrounding terrain is teeming with danger – and not just of the man-eating dinosaur variety. There is also a splinter colony of renegades led by the battle-hardened Mira (Christine Adams, TRON: Legacy), who is vehemently opposed to Taylor and his leadership.

Pilot Watch 2011 – FOX

Megan, Kyle, and I were all able to check out most of the FOX pilots for the 2011 season. We have each rated them as Watch, Maybe, or Skip. It’s actually surprising how much we agree on!
 

Alcatraz

Kyle: This pilot felt a lot like Lost, and not just because a lot of the same people are involved. The pilot introduces a lot of interesting mystery, uses flashbacks, and plays a lot with time. By the end of the pilot, I was anxious to see what happens next. – Watch

Jenny: I’ve seen the first few minutes of this, and that alone was enough to peak my interest. I’m leery about the mythology stuff, because I was (don’t hate me…) not a fan of Lost, but I want to give it a shot, because the premise is so very cool. It’ll be interesting to see if it can keep me guessing without frustrating me to no end. – Watch

Megan: I had high hopes for this pilot, because it was from J. J. Abrams (Lost, Alias), but I didn’t really enjoy it. I found it slow moving, although perhaps it’s because it’s a pilot and there’s a lot to set up. I just didn’t love it. I may DVR it and see if it picks up, because I’ve been wrong before, but I won’t shed any tears. I honestly shouldn’t be surprised, because I never enjoyed Lost. 😀 – Skip

TV News – 1/12/11

Hello my lovelies! I have a few bits of news for you tonight, served with an apology for my lack of regular posts. As you all know I am pregnant with my second child, and due to the high risk nature of my pregnancies, I’ve been up and down health wise. Today is a good day and baby boy is doing well, so I’m taking a few moments to update my favorite people on the world of TV news. I may not be around as often but I still appreciate all of the support you give the site, Jenny and myself. If it wasn’t for you readers, there’d be no place for a TV addict like myself to write about her addiction. 😀

FOX has ordered a second season of the new hit comedy, Raising Hope, as announced at the TCAs today by Kevin Reilly (President of FOX company). This news comes as no big surprise because Raising Hope, has been a hit from the start with viewers and critics alike. In the meantime, season one will return will all new episodes on Tuesday, February 8th at 9/8 c on FOX. So are you happy with this renewal?
