If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/21/19

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!

Phoebe’s Choice

When Burn Notice first went off the air, there were rumors that Sam Axe & Jesse might get a spin-off series, and I prayed to FSM for it to happen. No, instead Bruce Campbell went on to do three hilarious, gory seasons of Ash vs. Evil Dead, and all was good. Maybe he’s slowing down on account of hitting his 60s, but Campbell’s latest TV gig is as the host/narrator on the latest revival of Ripley’s Believe It or Not. On this show, he won’t need a stuntman because the stunts will be done by the superstar freaks that he highlights each week! Each episode covers a few different amazing stories, and so far they have been pretty wild.

Last week started off following a Lego engineer named Aurelien Rouffiange. He had been with the toy company for years and had been a part of many large-scale projects involving the tiny building blocks. As a PR stunt, Lego tasked Rouffiange and a team to construct a sports car replica out of only Legos. I feel they sort of cheated because they custom made a bunch of pieces to get it done, but by the time they were done, they did have a full-sized drivable replica of a Bugatti Chiron.

Next we got to meet Mimi Choi, a makeup megastar whose nightmare visions have driven her to Instagram fame. For years Choi suffered from jarring nightmares of people with eyes all over their faces and people whose faces would start to split into ten faces like a refracted mirror splintering from the center. To deal with the dreams, she decided to start painting what she was seeing on her own face with makeup. Once she began putting pictures of her work on Instagram, she exploded to social media stardom and hasn’t looked back since. What was once a source of terror for her is now the source of her greatest success.

The third and final person highlighted last week was Angel Giuffria, an actual cyborg human. Angel was the first human baby to be fitted with a myoelectric arm. The device, which is shaped like a regular arm and articulated with wrist and fingers, responds to impulses from the end of the stumped-off arm she was born with in the 1980s. Now a full-grown woman, she has several more modern myoelectric arms that look more sleek and have light-up abilities she can use practically or to be festive. I was completely blown away by how well she does with it.

On tonight’s episode, “The Curious Case of…” Joseph Herscher builds comical chain-reaction machines in the style of Rube Goldberg; Christian Stoinev grows up in the circus and becomes an acrobat.

Don’t miss the fun tonight on Travel Channel at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Perpetual Grace and Ancient Aliens.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/17/11

Thank goodness it’s Friday! Seriously, it’s been kind of a long week, and there hasn’t been a ton of new TV on to take away the dullness of the week. lol (But that does mean we were able to catch the last 2 episodes of Breakout Kings and the next to last episode of Chuck we had on the DVR. *laugh* This weekend, we’ll watch the season finales of Chuck, Body of Proof, and the final 2 episodes of Breaking In. For tonight, though, there are a few new episodes worth mentioning, so read on to see what Megan, Lisa, and I recommend!

Jenny’s Choice

Flashpoint has been strong this season. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each and every episode, and tonight looks to be no different. For one thing, Spy Daddy is back! Victor Garber (Alias) guest stars on tonight’s ep, which makes me very, very happy, although I’m not going to be fond of his character. AT. ALL. Still… It’s Spy Daddy!

On tonight’s episode, an outsider is brought in to perform some psychological testing on Team One, which causes them to turn on each other, fearing that someone will be let go. On the way to the hospital to witness the birth of his child, something happens that might prevent Ed from seeing the delivery.

Don’t miss what is sure to be an explosive new episode on CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/24/10

Welcome to Thanksgiving week Wednesday (aka Friday)! This is Jose from DaemonsTV.com, and it has been a blast being a part of “If We Controlled Your Remote…” this week. Before you head out to the bar for some partying or to your final turkey feast destination, remember to set your DVRs so that you don’t miss any of your shows. From all of us, have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Jose’s Choice

Thanksgiving is the one day a year we are encouraged to pig out and go back for seconds (or thirds, fourths… you get the picture). Therefore, my recommendation for Wednesday night involves tuning in and seeing how a professional does it. Man v. Food is a Travel Channel show that has host Adam Richman traveling to various locations across the US looking for the biggest eats around. Along the way, Adam takes on some of the most insane eating challenges – with interesting results along the way.

Tonight brings us a special edition of Man v. Food called The Carnivore Chronicles. These episodes focus on some of the best meat-centered meals Adam encountered in his travels, while showing some never before seen footage. In this episode, “Sacrilicious”, has Adam checking out hot dogs in Syracuse, barbeque in Detroit, and some awesome food in Chicago.
