If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/13

Well, my kid has bronchitis. Fun stuff. He stayed home from school yesterday, but he’s on antibiotics, so he’s back at school tomorrow. Hopefully the meds work fast, but even if he isn’t feeling great, there’s lots of stuff to watch tonight to help him relax. Here’s our recommendations. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

criminalminds1016smallLast week’s Criminal Minds was intense and really quite interesting. A sniper was shooting up Dallas, and it took a little bit, but the team finally figured out who the real targets were and why. I have to say that the husband running into the street and getting hit by the bus was kind of cool, in a gruesome way. And it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. The one thing I was confused about was a) how did Hotch get up to the woman’s apartment before the rest of the team made it up to the apartment the sniper was sitting in? Speaking of the sniper, it was pretty wild that his relationship with the woman was all in his mind, a way to keep himself awake while he waited for his opportunity.

I’m excited about tonight’s episode because we finally get to meet the new section chief, played by Esai Morales. He and JJ have some sort of history—something to do with her time away from the BAU, I think? It’ll be interesting to see that relationship, and I’m definitely interested to see how he fits in with the team. Strauss started off as the antagonist, and while she wasn’t besties with the team by the time she died, she’d certainly redeemed herself a whole whopping lot. So will he be supportive or argumentative with them? I’m anxious to find out.

On tonight’s episode, “To Bear Witness,” the BAU meets their new section chief, Mateo Cruz, who, unbeknownst to them, shares a long work history with JJ. Cruz joins the team as they comb the streets of Baltimore for an UnSub who leaves victims unable to communicate. David Anders guest stars.

See how the new section chief fits in tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Back in the Game, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, The Tomorrow People, CSI, Top Chef, Ironside, Mystery Diners, & Thieves, Inc..

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/9/13

I don’t know what I did to my wrist Monday night while I was sleeping, but it hurt all day Tuesday. But that’s okay, because Tuesday night TV is my favorite this season (followed closely by Monday), so I had lots to watch to keep me occupied! Tonight is another great night of television, so check out what we’re recommending (& welcome back Kyle! 🙂 ).

Jenny’s Choice #1

tomorrowpeople109smallMy first pick tonight is the series premiere of The Tomorrow People on the CW. The “Tomorrow People” is a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities. Stephen Jameson was a “normal” teenager up until a year ago, until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep. The Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. The show stars Robbie Amell (Revenge) as Stephen, Luke Mitchell (H20: Just Add Water) as John, Peyton List (Mad Men) as Cara, Aaron Yoo (Disturbia, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) as Russell, Mark Pellegrino (Lost, Supernatural) as Dr. Jedikiah Price, and Madeleine Mantock (upcoming All You Need is Kill) as Astrid.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Stephen questions his sanity when he starts hearing voices and waking up in unusual places; a voice in Stephen’s head leads him to a genetically advanced race known as the Tomorrow People.

Find out if this new sci-fi/supernatural drama is for you tonight on the CW at 9/8c.

Our Thoughts on the CW 2013-14 Pilot Trailers

Megan, Kyle, & I have been giving our opinions on the trailers for the new fall shows. You can check out the ones we’ve already posted: ABC, CBS, NBC, & FOX. Now, we’re here to give you our opinions on the CW pilot previews.


  • Jenny: Not. My. Thing. At. All. Even less so than regular dramas. Marking as Most Likely 1 and Done…but I’m not even going to give it that much. – Most Likely 1 and Done.
  • Megan: A story about Mary Queen of Scots? I’m intrigued…but cautious. This is an astronomical story to tackle, and if they mess it up (which, frankly, The CW has a history of doing), it’ll be horrific. Don’t mess with historic figures unless you can do them justice. All that aside, the trailer looks promising and I’m mildly hopeful. – Curious.
  • Kyle: From the video, you can’t really tell what this is about. If it falls into the political Tudors-style show, then I’m excited. However, if it falls into a romance drama like most CW shows, I’ll most likely be dropping it quickly. – Curious.
