If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/24/14

Is anyone else keeping up with the World Cup? The US tied with Portugal on Sunday, 2-2. It was an exciting game that kept fans on the edge of their seats, apparently. We don’t play again until Thursday, against Germany. I have to admit that I’m not keeping up with it, but good luck to the US team! As to something we’re all interested in… Tonight’s TV, of which there’s plenty. 🙂 So check out our recommendations to help you maybe narrow it down a little. 😉

Jenny’s Choice

rizzoliisles624smallLast week’s premiere of Rizzoli & Isles was darn near perfect, even on my second watch. The case was interesting and suspenseful… A woman was murdered, and at first, it seemed like a run-of-the-mill murder case, until they discovered an empty stroller nearby and knew they were now searching for a missing, possibly dead, baby. In the end, the baby’s father and his girlfriend had set it up, and instead of being found by the people of the church where the girlfriend had left him, the little baby had been found by a homeless woman who was determined to take care of him to the best of her abilities. The baby was given to his aunt — his mother’s sister — and her husband, so we knew he’d grow up in a loving home. But to know that your father and his girlfriend murdered your mother? That’ll be hard on the kid when he gets older. Of course, the most emotional part of the episode was at the end, when they learned that Frost had been killed in a car accident on the way back from his mother’s house. When they all went to the accident scene and Jane broke down, my son turned to me and solemnly said, “You know, I’m sure some of that is real emotion because of the actor.” Very insightful for a 16yo…

Tonight is the continuation of that story, with the team dealing with Frost’s death. I’ve seen the episode, and that is pretty much what I remember from it. The case is interesting, but truly, the emotions from Jane especially are what takes the cake. If Angie Harmon ever deserved an Emmy nod, this episode would be it.

On tonight’s episode, “Goodbye,” a woman walks into the station covered in blood, carrying a gun, and saying she killed someone. Unfortunately, the trauma of what she did caused her to forget who she is or who the victim is. The team tries to unravel this bizarre case as they deal with the loss of close friend and colleague, Det. Barry Frost.

See how they deal with the loss and if they can close the case tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Next Great Baker, Chopped, & Sullivan & Son.
