If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/14/13

Short and simple today… I’m feeling icky and just wanna get off my computer, Megan’s dealing with a sick kiddo, and JJ’s had a busy weekend, so Kyle & I are here to make our recommendations for tonight (& then I’m crashing). It’s a busy night with some great stuff on, so see if we can help you narrow it down.

Jenny’s Choice

crossinglines714smallI’m really enjoying the new NBC show Crossing Lines. I love the authentic feel it has to it. The accents don’t seem fake or forced, the locales are fantastic, and the story lines are really great. It’s a different take on cop shows, which are my favorite, so that’s fun to see. We’ve now learned more about Louis’s (Major Daniels) sad story, the death of his son. I hope we’ll continue to find out more to help get him closure. Last week was great because it dealt with truckers who basically set up and kidnap couples that are traveling with their young children, in order to have the adults basically fight to the death against each other. The loser couple’s child was then kept and raised by the mechanic who helped them and his wife. The graves all over the field and then the children walking through at the end? Heartbreaking.

On tonight’s episode, “Special Ops Pt 1,” when a wealthy teenager is taken hostage, the ICC team has to move fast to track the kidnappers. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie finds a connection to a similar case in Florence as the team races to rescue the boy. Elsewhere, Dorn and Louis soon discover an unexpected link to their arch enemy Alexander Dimitrov (guest star Marcel Iures), which puts their lives in danger.

Find out what kind of danger they’re in and if the team can find the hostage tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Food Court Wars, HGTV Star, Food Network Star, & Whodunnit?.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/26/12

It’s the start of another week, and it’s only ONE WEEK until my little girl starts grade two—time machine, let’s get this week over. (Where’s Doc Brown when you need him?) I love my daughter, but I am looking forward to having her back in school. She is so over summer vacation! While I not-so-patiently count down the days until school, let’s see what there is on the old tube to keep us busy!

Megan’s Choice

An ode to True Blood: Oh, how I love your crazy, ludicrous story lines, the violence, the blood, the backstabbing, the anger, the love, the heartache… Need I go on? This season has been a mixture of emotions and a smorgasbord of crazy. I’m not sure yet if I loved it—I’m going to need some time to reflect on that—however, I can say that Evil Bill was intense. There also should have been more Eric—because more Eric makes Megan a happy girl. Okay, maybe all Eric, all the time? 🙂 How sad was it when Russell drained the Elder fairie? I loved her.

On tonight’s season finale, “Save Yourself,” Eric embarks on a final desperate mission to save Bill from losing his humanity.

To see if Eric can be the Sam to Bill’s Frodo, tune in to HBO at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of True Blood @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching The Great Escape.
