If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/10/12

As I write this, it’s Saturday night, which means we’re halfway through the weekend. Today just flew by, and I’m sure Sunday won’t be any slower. The only difference is there’s some fantastic TV on Sunday night, and we definitely have opinions on what you should be watching. So read on to find out. 😉

Last week’s premiere of The Glades was great. I loved the case of the older millionaire with the young, hot wife who looked to be the best suspect for a while in her husband’s death. Of course, then we learned that no, it was her ex-lover and the leader of group of UFO enthusiasts, who plotted together to kill the old man before he could patch things up with his wife, renew their vows, and change his will back to give all his money to her, rather than the organization he’d been a member of for a couple of years. One of my favorite scenes was when Jim used the guy’s own EMP (electromagnetic pulse) to shut down the truck he and his co-conspirator were escaping in, and then when he was standing there with his gun out, the dummy unclipped his seat belt and started to climb out of the truck and run… Where did he think he was going? Jim was RIGHT THERE. lol It was fantastic.

Then, of course, there was all the Callie/Jim stuff. *love* Poor Callie is having an awful time finding a new job. I have a friend who is a nurse, and the hospital she was working at closed down last year. She was lucky that she was able to find a job pretty quickly and easily, but it’s a pretty good distance from home so she has a commute. So I felt for Callie, who even this week is struggling. But still, I loved the relationship stuff in last week’s premiere. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Poseidon Adventure,” a beautiful synchronized swimmer in an elaborate mermaid costume washes ashore dead, and the clues lead Jim to a bittersweet love triangle and a hip hop mogul trying to turn the mermaid show into a multimillion-dollar phenomenon. On the home front, Callie hits a wall in her job search, and Jim realizes the best opportunity for her is the one in Atlanta she passed up to be with him.

Check it out tonight on A&E at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Glades @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/29/12

It’s the start of a new week, but thankfully, it’s still the weekend, which means we can sit back and relax tonight and watch all the great new TV. Check out what we think you should be watching tonight!

Tonight is the 2-hour season finale of A&E’s Breakout Kings. It’s been a great season. We got hit with Charlie’s death at the beginning, and all season, the team has been dealing with the fallout. Ray got his badge back and is in charge now, which is great. I liked him more than I liked Charlie because he was an obviously flawed man who was trying to make things right. Last episode was crazy good. Lloyd got his hopes up about the pen Juliann gave him, but she told him she just thinks of him as a good friend. I’m kind of pissed at her because instead of giving him a pen, she should have just given him nothing or flat out told him. Because of that, Lloyd was all too happy to get out of the office to go find the clue Damian left him…which ended up getting him kidnapped. Damian forced him to play cards, and when Lloyd won, rather than letting the girl go like he’d told Lloyd he would, he killed her. Lloyd barely reacted when Juliann finally got to him, but he told Ray he quit at the end of the episode. Nooooo. I love Lloyd. I’ll be sad if he doesn’t come back next season!

Erica learned that the “club” guy from downstairs had been using her after the guy she got an address for turned up beaten in his home and the club guy’s office was empty. I KNEW from the very first episode that the guy was bad news and not what he seemed. Erica is PISSED off. Oh man… lol And then on the case front, it dealt with ex-soldiers who had been mislead about who they were taking out on a mission and when they learned the truth, they started getting killed. The guy who escaped prison knew that and was determined to out the people responsible. I was sad that Shea (interesting that his grandfather had ties to the IRA, yeah??) crushed up the evidence the escapee had given him for safekeeping. I mean, I get it…everyone who came in contact with it was being killed…but still. 🙁 Tonight’s season finale looks INSANE. It’s going to be scary and thrilling, all at once.

On tonight’s first hour, “Freakshow,” Max Doyle was an orphan raised in the circus with an ax to grind. All his life Max has felt a lack of belonging, a feeling that was only partially assuaged by turning himself into a premiere escape artist. It’s that talent that the Breakout Kings are up against as they track Max.

This in tonight’s second hour, “Served Cold,” Damien has upped the psychotic ante with the Breakout Kings, and now it’s personal. Still barred from working on the Damien case, the Kings do what they need to do to bring their nemesis down. In the end, the team will be faced with an impossible choice.

Don’t miss the 2-hour season finale tonight on A&E starting at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Breakout Kings @ Clicker.

I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Cupcake Wars, Chopped All Stars, & NYC 22.
