If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/4/14

We’ve made it to the end of another week. It’s been a rough week for a lot of people, so if you have blessings in your life, take a moment to be thankful for them. Then curl up & watch some great TV. 😉 Here are our recommendations!

Jenny’s Choice #1

raisinghope44smallTonight is the 1-hour series finale of Raising Hope. I’m very sad about that because I’ve been a huge fan of the show since the beginning. I loved when they got Jimmy & Sabrina together. He is far from the smartest guy on the block, but together, they’re completely adorable. Last week was a great one to start wrapping up the series. Burt and Virginia were experiencing empty-nest syndrome since Jimmy, Hope, and Sabrina weren’t living with them anymore and Maw Maw was off on a Grateful Dead tour. They tried to adopt a dog, which didn’t work out well, but it led them to volunteering at the hospital with children, which was perfect. As for Jimmy & Sabrina, they had a very cute couple moment, where Sabrina admitted to pretending to have interest in Hope when it was really Jimmy she was interested in.

This show has been a little crude, a little…white trash, if you will, but since the beginning, it’s been a comedy with a lot of heart, and it never failed to bring the funny. I’ll miss it. (And hopefully we’ll have a better series finale than we did with How I Met Your Mother! 😉

On tonight’s first episode, “How I Met Your Mullet,” Jimmy and Sabrina get a surprise when they learn that Sabrina’s late grandmother has left them the family maid (guest star Lesley Nicol), who has a lifetime contract with the family. Meanwhile, Virginia gets a promotion at work that allows Burt to retire and pursue his passion – even if he doesn’t know what his passion is.

Then, on the series finale, “The Father Daughter Dance,” Virginia’s father, Arnold (guest star Jeffrey Tambor), returns to Natesville seeking help in planning his upcoming wedding. But Arnold surprises everyone when he reveals that the wedding Virginia has planned is really for her and Burt – the dream wedding they never got to have as teen parents.

See the end of a great series tonight on FOX at 9/8c & 9:30/8:30c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/25/13

Back to school shopping is exhausting—not to mention expensive. I feel like I’ve run a marathon getting ready to send the kids back to school, but boy am I ready for that day. Tonight, I’m going to soak my feet and relax after a day of errands and planning; so while I do that, let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

cutthroatkitchensmallCutthroat Kitchen has quickly become a fun family show to watch. My teenage son and I love watching cooking shows together, and we are both loving this. There’s the cooking aspect, but the sabotage and competition are very interesting. Overall, if you love cooking shows but you also love a little bit of reality TV hype, you should definitely tune in to this.

On tonight’s episode, “Tac’o the Town,” the chefs are forced to make tacos with bologna; the chefs try to derail each other’s Eggs Benedict.

To see how these chefs can make the bologna taste good in a taco, tune in to Food Network at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Unforgettable and Family Dance Off.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/4/13

It’s Sunday, and I’m planning on enjoying what’s left of the weekend. That includes some great TV tonight. Megan’s busy with some family stuff, and JJ needed to get caught up on TV, so it’s just Kyle & me here to tell you our recommendations. Enjoy! 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

unforgettable84smallLast week’s premiere of Unforgettable was really great. I hadn’t realized how much I’d missed Carrie & Al until I started watching. It did have a slightly different feel to it because of the cast changes, but I didn’t feel like the show was necessarily missing too much. They brought in the new cast in the Major Crimes squad—which was really decked out in a pretty awesome way, I have to say. It took me a bit, but by the end of the episode, I really liked their new boss. His voice and the way he speaks is hard to get used to, but I really like the character. Some of the new co-workers, I’m not sure about yet, but others, I already like. Plus, the ME is there, which is fantastic. So overall, I’m excited to have it back. I hope we get to see more about Carrie & Al’s current personal relationship. Are they dating again? Still just…friends but both would be good with more? The case last week was great, too—my husband totally called it with the hostage negotiator being behind the current kidnapping case.

On tonight’s episode, “Incognito,” Carrie goes undercover with a team of bank robbers when the Major Crimes squad gets a lead on the gang’s leader, a notorious thief who rarely shows his face. Sendhil Ramamurthy (Covert Affairs, Heroes) guest stars.

Find out how Carrie going undercover with bank robbers works tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/28/13

I don’t know about you, but summer is winding down in our house. My kiddo starts a week of band camp on Monday, and then school starts August 13th. He’s not happy about it, and I’m of mixed emotions. 😉 It’s been nice having him around, but I’ll kind of be glad for the peace & quiet! LOL But…that’s all in the future. For now, there’s some great stuff to watch on TV tonight, and I’m taking advantage of it. Check out our recommendations so you can relax and enjoy the evening too!

Jenny’s Choice

unforgettable728smallI really enjoyed Unforgettable when it was on last season, and I was disappointed when it came *this* close to be canceled. Fortunately, CBS decided to keep it, although it’s undergone a pretty big change. Most of the cast was let go, which means there’s obviously going to be some shift in jobs for Carrie and Al. And will they rekindle their romance? I’m hoping so! Fortunately, TPTB decided to keep Jane Curtin as the ME. I loved her on here. She had a great chemistry with Carrie and was just fun to watch. The newcomers to the show are Dallas Roberts (The Good Wife, The Walking Dead), who plays the Head of the NYPD’s Major Crimes Section, and Tawny Cypress (Heroes), & James Hiroyuki Liao (who was in 7 episodes of Prison Break).

On tonight’s episode, “Bigtime,” Carrie’s and Al’s reputations for closing cases results in an offer to join the Major Crimes Section of the NYPD. But when their first case—a high-profile child kidnapping—hits close to home for Carrie, it leaves her wondering if a move from Queens to Manhattan is what’s best for her. Andrew McCarthy guest stars.

Find out if the show has the same great feel to it this season, if not better, tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Food Court Wars, Food Network Star, Whodunnit?, Brother vs Brother, & Crossing Lines.

Interview with Poppy Montgomery from Unforgettable

Poppy Montgomery recently spoke with the press about the rest of the season of Unforgettable. A new episode airs tonight, so check out what Poppy had to say about her role in the show, the upcoming story lines, and more, read on.

On Carrie’s evolution from the start of the season toward the end

Poppy Montgomery: You know, I think in the first half of the season and certainly in the pilot we saw a much more tortured soul, if you will, you know. I think that she was very ill at ease coming back to the police world and she had a lot of unresolved anger towards Dylan’s character, Al. And, you know, she had unresolved feelings and she didn’t know if she could work with him. She struggled with this ability that she has.

And I think that now, through the police work and everything that she’s doing, she has become more adjusted to the world and more able to deal with things than she was in the pilot where she’s making some kind of peace in her life with her ability and her gift, and using it to sort of save and help other people which gives her some kind of peace. But the murder of her sister is still unresolved. So I think that, you know, that’s a big key to who she is.
