If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/31/14

It’s still germ central around my house. I feel awful. Hubs feels better for the most part, but kid still has a lingering cough. Fun stuff. Thank goodness for new TV. But be sure to keep up, because soon, there’s going to be so much new TV that we’ll be drowning in it. 😉 But for now, check out our recommendations.

flippingtheblocksmallI am truly loving HGTV’s Flipping the Block. Unlike the similar show on FYI, I don’t dislike any of the teams on this one—there are a couple I like more than the others, but still, I don’t dislike any of them. The teams are coming down to the wire now. Last week, they finished the indoor part of the renovation on their condos. The living rooms all turned out pretty darn great, but I gotta say, while I liked John & Whitney’s a lot (they’re my favorites—they’re too adorable!) and it was probably my favorite, there were aspects of the others that I loved as well. I was VERY impressed with Curtis & Amanda and their renovation on $80. They may have gotten the idea for the ceiling from another team, but their room turned out pretty damn good and the ceiling was beautiful. Shauna & Anicka had a LOT of orange in their room, but I loved the original artwork they included, and Craig & Brian’s blue was nice, but I especially loved the storage and mirror in their dining area.

On tonight’s episode, “It Takes a Block,” the teams begin work on their final renovation, which involves the common spaces and curb appeal, and they’re surprised when Josh and David join them to help transform the outside area into the most attractive on the block.

See how the teams all work together tonight on HGTV at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Underground BBQ Challenge, Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off, The Great Food Truck Race, Unforgettable, Cutthroat Kitchen, & Reckless.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/13/14

I have been loving this summer so far, and TV is no exception to that. It’s been a great summer season of television so far, so let’s see what we’re recommending tonight to keep you going.

Megan’s Choice

trueblood714smallTrue Blood has been rocking the boat left, right, and center since the beginning of this season. First we had the death of Tara, but last week, Alcide met his untimely death. Wow. I was actually shocked and a little upset because I’ll miss looking at him. Although I didn’t love his character and felt his story was played out, it doesn’t change the fact that I will miss him a little bit for sure. This season has taken a life of its own, and honestly, in order to survive, we’re all going to have to just hold on and enjoy the bumpy ride.

On tonight’s episode, “Death is not the End,” in the aftermath of yet another bloodbath, Sam, Sookie, and Jason find themselves the bearers of bad news in Bon Temps and beyond. Pam recalls the events that led her and Eric to Shreveport and Fangtasia. Bill and Jessica get nourishment from unexpected sources. Following a new lead, Sookie enlists a band of vampires and humans to track down the H-Vamps.

To see what crazy turns tonight holds, tune in to HBO at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Witches of East End, Big Brother, Wipeout, The Strain, Guy’s Grocery Games, Cutthroat Kitchen, and The Leftovers.
