If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/10/14

It has been a whirlwind of a weekend around my house, but as always, I am thankful for all that I have—even the mess from the kids. On Saturday night, we all stayed up for a family game night, which was fun but reminded me why I hate playing Monopoly: first, it takes FOREVER, and second, I always lose. Regardless, fun was had by all, but tonight, after a busy work day, I am going to be ready to chill out and watch some great television. So take a peek at what we all think you should be watching tonight.

ncisla1110smallNCIS: LA is simply one of the best parts of my Monday night lately because it always manages to provide humor, suspense, and just enough personal stories to keep us interested. Last week was full of twists and turns as Sam was arrested for the murder of a bookkeeper named Leyla and the evidence against him was quite convincing. The opening scene of him being arrested was an incredible show of force to take one man into custody, and I’m not really surprised, since it was Sam and he is by all definitions as bad-ass as they come. One of my favorite parts of the episode was meeting Ray Turner, a former Navy SEAL who had taken to the Internet to call out people who were fraudulently posing as SEALs—but this guy was hilarious. It was very amusing when he gave Sam and Callen the slip by swimming back from the boat and then video calling them while standing behind them. It gave a great comic relief to a very tense episode. In the end, it turned out that it was Lee Stevens, a guy who served with Sam, who was responsible, and to say this guy looked like Sam is an understatement, because he was a full-blown doppelganger in my opinion. A great episode with a happy ending for Sam and the hope that they’ll bring back Ray for another episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Leipei,” when a man is murdered by a small drone, the team discovers his connection to a terrorist group that is planning another local attack. With time running short, Nell must use her drone expertise to try to divert a disaster in Long Beach.

To see if Nell can rise to the occasion, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/6/14

Well, after grumbling about my DVR problems, the AT&T guy came out today, fairly early in the 4-hour timeslot, decided to try switching out the router for a new one, and whatd’ya know? It works now. Yay! Here’s hoping that’ll continue! I’m just glad because, aside from the stuff Thursday & Friday nights (some of which I personally had already seen via screeners and the rest of which are available streaming on the networks’ websites), we didn’t lose anything. Whew. So I’m a much happier camper tonight. Plus, the KC Royals kicked butt against the Angels last night. But enough about me. 😉 Check out what we’re recommending on TV tonight.

ncisla106smallLast week on NCIS: LA, Hetty was headed to the airport after being summoned to Washington, but she turned around when she learned that Sam & Callen were trapped on a sub with the bad guys. Speaking of Sam & Callen, it was fun to watch how they both handled the thought that they were basically on a suicide mission at that point in order to keep the sub from reaching its intended destination of the Navy vessel. Callen was almost gleeful about it—whether that was from the lack of oxygen or just the thought that he would be getting one over on the bad guys, I don’t know. Sam, on the other hand, was determined but more resolute—and that could only be because he had a family waiting for him at home. But they worked together well and got out just in time. Meanwhile, Kensi & Deeks had to deal with DEA Agent Talia—in the end, Kensi & Talia were whispering and giggling to each other like school girls, making Deeks worry about the sudden friendship. It was pretty cute. But two of my favorite parts of the ep were when Kensi & Deeks played an engaged couple checking out the Chinese restaurant and then in the helicopter, before they saw Sam & Callen, when they grabbed one another’s hand as they saw that the sub had been blown to bits.

I haven’t seen tonight episode, and I’m anxious about it. Hetty is headed to Washington—her future is up in the air. I haven’t heard anything about Linda Hunt leaving the show, but…maybe they’re just playing it close to the vest? I hope not… It wouldn’t be the same without her. The whole team is under investigation, but I know there aren’t any other big personnel changes, so I’m relatively okay with that, knowing they’ll come out of it intact in the end.

On tonight’s episode, “Inelegant Heart,” the team discovers that one of their own is compromised when they investigate the murder of a Navy contractor involved in illegal transactions of confidential data. Meanwhile, Hetty is under investigation in Washington, D.C., when the Department of Justice arrives in L.A. to investigate the team.

See who’s been compromised tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, Dancing with the Stars, Gotham, Rewrapped, Mystery Diners, Scorpion, Castle, House vs. House, & Restaurant Stakeout.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/2/13

December is an incredibly busy month, but today, I am going to take a moment and start to unpack my Christmas decorations. I am most excited about sending my fiance out to go find us a tree—yay Christmas tree! After a busy day of Christmas decorating, I’m going to be ready to kick back and watch some television, so let’s see what’s on.

bakerybosssmallI have always loved Buddy, the Cake Boss, but tonight, we’re going to get to see him in a different light when his new show, Bakery Boss, premieres. Buddy is going to do what Gordon Ramsay does on Kitchen Nightmares (and Robert Irvine does, etc) except with bakeries and he’ll probably be a little nicer. With all that Buddy and his family have accomplished, it’s nice to see him giving back to family bakeries, and I’m very excited to see how he helps change people’s lives.

On tonight’s series premiere, “Friendly Bake Shop,” Buddy Valastro helps the Vitis family save their bakery.

To see if he can help this struggling business, tune in to TLC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Sleepy Hollow, 2 Broke Girls, Almost Human, The Voice, The Blacklist, CMA Country Christmas, and Mom.

TV times 3 (TVx3) Podcast Ep.204

Early this week, I was part of the TVx3 Podcast with Jason (@theTVaholic) & Amrie (@mytakeontv). We talked recent TV news, then chatted about episodes of The Blacklist, Elementary, Ground Floor, Raising Hope, Almost Human, and The Mentalist. Then Amrie talked reality, with me jumping in about one of my favorite reality shows of the last few months, MasterChef Junior. You can listen to it here.

Jason does these podcasts once a week with different hosts joining him, and this was my first time. It was a lot of fun! Kyle & Megan have both done it several times. You can check out the TV times Three site here, with all the previous podcasts. Be sure to check them out! TV times Three.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/30/13

It’s the last day of September, and the month is going out with a bang today with some fantastic new episodes. We’re here to give you our recommendations on what you should be watching. 🙂

castle930smallI absolutely loved last week’s Castle. He made up for his seemingly lackluster proposal with the explanation that it was the most serious thing he’d ever done and that it wasn’t a ploy to get her to stay in NYC and not take the job in D.C., that they would work it out whatever she decided to do. Of course, the separation didn’t come easy to either of them, but Castle was definitely missing out on partnering with Beckett—so much so that he couldn’t help but butt in on her case when she accidentally left a photo out of the file as she left the apartment to go to work. So when he found it, he talked Ryan & Espo into helping him. That was the one thing I missed in the premiere, was the whole team working together. I like Beckett’s new partner in D.C., but I can’t wait until she’s back in NY. Of course, then there was Pi, Alexis’s new boyfriend… He’s quite the character. I don’t dislike him, really, but he was kind of annoying, and I don’t like him with Alexis. *shrug* Finally, the episode ended in a cliffie, with Castle infected with the same thing that killed their suspect. He only has twenty-four hours to live. Eek! 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Dreamworld,” continuing from the season premiere episode, Beckett races against time to find a stolen toxin capable of killing tens of thousands of people. To make matters worse, Castle was exposed, leaving him with less than 24 hours to live. Lisa Edelstein guest stars.

Find out how they save Castle and find the stolen toxin tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, How I Met Your Mother, We Are Men, 2 Broke Girls, Sleepy Hollow, Mom, & The Blacklist.
