If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/21/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice #1

celebrityfamilyfeudsmallMy first pick tonight is the season premiere of Celebrity Family Feud. The regular version of this show is one my son and I love watching together, especially the ones with current host, Steve Harvey, and the long-ago Richard Dawson. The celebrity edition first aired back in 2008, and tonight’s it’s back for a new round. It will feature two celebrities competing against one another with their families to win money for their favorite charity. We’ll get two episodes a night for three weeks.

Tonight’s two games feature Anthony Anderson (black-ish) and his family – mother Doris, brother Derrick, Aunt Denise, & sister-in-law Carol – versus Toni Braxton (7-time Grammy Award-winning artist) and her sisters – Tamar, Trina, Towanda, & Traci. That will be followed by Monica Potter (Parenthood) and her family – mother Nancy, and sisters Jessica, Brigette, & Kerry – versus Curtis Stone (Australian celebrity chef) and his – wife Lindsay Price (Eastick, Lipstick Jungle) and Lindsay’s father Bill, mother Diane, & brother Bryan.

To see which teams of celebrities and their families take home the prize for their charities, tune in to ABC at 8/7c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/24/14

Yesterday, we went and ate at Burger Revolution, a restaurant that was featured on You Gotta Eat Here, and it was incredible. I honestly have never had a better burger in my life, so if you’re in Belleville, ON, anytime, you should check it our for sure. Now on to my biggest addiction—television and what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice

trueblood824smallIt’s the end of an era as True Blood comes to an end tonight with the series finale. Over the past seven seasons, we’ve fallen in love with vampires, werewolves, and even fairies. There’s been drama, sex, and humor. I don’t know about you, but while there have been a few bumps along the road for the series, overall it’s been so amazing. There will be a hole in our TV world without this show, yet I’m ready to see how it’s going to end.

On tonight’s episode, “Thank You,” Sookie weighs a future with and without Bill. Eric and Pam struggle with their uncomfortable partnership with Mr. Gus. Sam makes a choice, while Andy comes upon an unexpected inheritance.

Grab your tissues and tune in to HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Wipeout, Rachel vs Guy: Kids Cook-Off, The Great Food Truck Race, Cutthroat Kitchen, The Strain, Mountain Men, Teen Wolf, and Witches of East End.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/22/14

It’s the beginning of a crazy week of TV, which is both good and bad. *laugh* I had a good day Saturday, working on the schedule for the site, napping, and watching Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. I’ve been itching for a good action movie, and this filled the bill. But I’m ready for some great new TV, and I’m hoping this week will fill that one, starting tonight, so check out Kyle’s and my recommendations. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

thelastshipsmallTonight is the series premiere of what I think should be a great new show, The Last Ship. Based on William Brinkley’s popular novel, starring Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy), and executive-produced by blockbuster filmmaker Michael Bay (Transformers), it opens with a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world’s population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoids falling victim to the devastating tragedy. But now, Captain Tom Chandler (Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors. Rhona Mitra (Strike Back) plays Rachel Scott, a strong-willed, intelligent and fearless paleomicrobiologist assigned to the ship. Adam Baldwin (Firefly, Chuck) is XO Mike Slattery, a former homicide detective and Chandler’s second-in-command. Also starring in The Last Ship are Travis Van Winkle (Heart of Dixie), Charles Parnell (Pariah), Christina Elmore (Fruitvale Station), Sam Spruell (Snow White and The Huntsman), and Marissa Neitling (Leverage).

I’ve been looking forward to this one ever since I heard about it months ago. I love Eric Dane and Adam Baldwin, and the premise is interesting, so here’s hoping it’s great!

On tonight’s episode, “Phase Six,” Captain Tom Chandler and the crew of the USS Nathan James set out for the Arctic with two civilian virologists, Dr. Rachel Scott and Dr. Quincy Tophet, who claim to be studying birds. When they come under attack by a renegade team of Russian forces, Chandler learns these virologists are actually collecting samples of the source of a deadly virus that has wiped out over half the human population while they’ve been at sea. As they head home on the orders of the remaining U.S. government, Chandler and his crew realize that home is a shadow of what they left, and the safest place to develop a vaccine for this deadly disease is out at sea on their ship.

Watch how it all starts tonight on TNT at 9/8c.
