If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/27/13

It’s Monday, but it’s also Memorial Day, so most people have today off work. Whether you’re working or not, and whether you’re a Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, take a moment to remember those men and women who died serving in our military. Each and every one is a hero and gave his/her life for our freedom or someone else’s. They deserve to be remembered. As for television tonight, it’s a pretty slow night, so check out the two shows Kyle & I think you should be watching tonight. 🙂

longmire527smallI’m so excited for new TV on A&E tonight! One of my favorite new shows last summer, Longmire, returns tonight. If you missed it last season, the show is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson. Sheriff Walt Longmire lives in Wyoming, and last season, he had to come to terms with the loss of his wife (she died before the series started, but the effects of her death were still dictating his life). He and his daughter were having issues because of how closed off he’d become, and he realized he’d checked out of life so much that his deputy Branch was going up against him in the race for sheriff. And Vic Moretti (played by Katee Sackhoff, Battlestar Galactica) was still a fairly new deputy but had quickly become his right hand “man.” Finally, there was Henry Standing Bear (played by the always delightful Lou Diamond Phillips), who owns the local bar and is Walt’s loyal friend.

In the new season, Walt is back after coming to terms with the loss of his wife. He’ll fight for re-election against Branch. Vic will be visited by the ghost of a past she’d rather forget. Cady (Walt’s daughter) will search for answers about her mother’s murder. Henry will be drawn into the story when Walt’s possible connection to the death of his wife’s killer continues to come to light. I can’t wait to see how Walt & co. face each challenge and story—all while getting some great crime/sheriff stories as well!

On tonight’s episode, “Unquiet Mind,” after a prison transfer goes awry, Walt pursues a serial killer and his fellow escapees who have taken hostages up a mountain.

To see if this quiet country sheriff can capture your heart, tune in to A&E at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Bachelorette, The Goodwin Games, The Glades, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/8/12

It’s the start of a new week. That is a good and bad thing. For a lot of people, that means they are only days away from Comic-Con. For others that are not so lucky (like me. lol), that means a new work week. But there’s still one more night to relax before you go back to work, so check out what we think you should be watching. 🙂

I have to say I’ve been worried about this season of The Glades because Callie moved away to work and go to medical school and then the sexy hot Bureau Chief is showing an awfully big interest in Jim. But I caught up over the last few days and have been really happy with how it’s going so far. Yeah, it sucks that Callie isn’t in town, but they’ve done well with phone calls and the visits—like last week, when Jim surprised her at work with dinner from a local food truck. I’m still crossing my fingers that they don’t make Jim a cheater or have him & Callie break up. I want the Bureau Chief chick to go away. We’ll see how it goes. As for the cases, they have been as great as they always are and continue to be one of the reasons this is one of my favorite shows ever.

I’m looking forward to this week’s episode because it brings back two previous stories from the show. It’ll be interesting to see how they are handled this time around.

On tonight’s episode, “Old Times,” when a convicted killer contacts the Innocence Project and gets his case reopened, Jim must team up with his ex-partner; Callie learns a shocking truth about Miranda when she is faced with testifying against the IRS agent who sexually harassed her.

Don’t miss it tonight on A&E at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Glades @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Longmire, Cupcake Wars, Food Network Star, Iron Chef America, Falling Skies, The Great Escape, & the series premiere of Bounty Wars.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/17/12

Today is a day to honor and spoil all the men in our lives for being good fathers. A dad is so much more than just DNA. It’s the love and devotion to making a child’s life a better place to be. It’s all many moments that a man puts into being a role model. So today, whether you are a biological father, a step-dad, an uncle, a godfather, or anything else, just remember that you make a difference in someone’s life just by being you. Now that the mushy stuff is out of the way, let’s see what awesome television is on for you to watch tonight.

True Blood is one of my most delicious addictions, and last week’s premiere just got me even more hooked. I can’t say that I was surprised that Tara ended up coming back as a vampire, but I can say that Sookie was incredibly stupid to stand over the grave waiting for a hungry new vampire to rise for the first time. How creepy was Reverend Steve as a vamp? Not just a vamp, but a homosexual vamp…Insane. I loved Jason’s response of “This dog don’t bark that way.” Classic. Overall, I was impressed with the premiere, and I am looking forward to seeing where this season is going to take us. Whereever it is, I’m sure it’s going to be devious and shocking.

On tonight’s episode, “Authority Always Wins,” Bill and Eric meet Salome at the Vampire Authority headquarters; Pam recalls her human life and first encounter with Eric; Sookie gets a home-protection system; Arlene investigates Terry’s erratic behavior; Steve Newlin makes Jessica an offer.

To watch as things heat up with the vampire community, tune in to HBO at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of True Blood @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Drop Dead Diva and The Glades.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/10/12

As I write this, it’s Saturday night, which means we’re halfway through the weekend. Today just flew by, and I’m sure Sunday won’t be any slower. The only difference is there’s some fantastic TV on Sunday night, and we definitely have opinions on what you should be watching. So read on to find out. 😉

Last week’s premiere of The Glades was great. I loved the case of the older millionaire with the young, hot wife who looked to be the best suspect for a while in her husband’s death. Of course, then we learned that no, it was her ex-lover and the leader of group of UFO enthusiasts, who plotted together to kill the old man before he could patch things up with his wife, renew their vows, and change his will back to give all his money to her, rather than the organization he’d been a member of for a couple of years. One of my favorite scenes was when Jim used the guy’s own EMP (electromagnetic pulse) to shut down the truck he and his co-conspirator were escaping in, and then when he was standing there with his gun out, the dummy unclipped his seat belt and started to climb out of the truck and run… Where did he think he was going? Jim was RIGHT THERE. lol It was fantastic.

Then, of course, there was all the Callie/Jim stuff. *love* Poor Callie is having an awful time finding a new job. I have a friend who is a nurse, and the hospital she was working at closed down last year. She was lucky that she was able to find a job pretty quickly and easily, but it’s a pretty good distance from home so she has a commute. So I felt for Callie, who even this week is struggling. But still, I loved the relationship stuff in last week’s premiere. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Poseidon Adventure,” a beautiful synchronized swimmer in an elaborate mermaid costume washes ashore dead, and the clues lead Jim to a bittersweet love triangle and a hip hop mogul trying to turn the mermaid show into a multimillion-dollar phenomenon. On the home front, Callie hits a wall in her job search, and Jim realizes the best opportunity for her is the one in Atlanta she passed up to be with him.

Check it out tonight on A&E at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Glades @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cupcake Wars, Food Network Star, Head Games, & Longmire.
