If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/17/14

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you had some corned beef and cabbage, drank green beer, or kissed an Irishman, I hope that your day was filled with all the luck and heritage you hoped for. Now, while some of you party the night away, the rest of us will settle down to watch some new TV. Check out our recommendations!

Megan’s Choice

bones317smallIt’s nice to have Bones back on Monday nights and, even better, just to have it back after the hiatus. Last week’s episode was fabulous straight out of the gate, especially with the sexy Freddie Prinze Jr. reprising his guest role as CIA Agent Danny Beck. The case followed the death of an Afghani woman named Sari, who we later found out was in a relationship with Danny. He was very upset when Booth considered him a suspect, but in the end, it turned out to be a smug US guard who just gave me the creeps with his general demeanor. Besides the case, there was the usual Booth and Brennan banter that we have all come to love, and this episode had us watching as Brennan was quite indignant that her life insurance was more expensive than Booth’s, which was very amusing. I loved how they ended with the couple having a drink in her office, which was a nice break from the usual setting of them at home.

On tonight’s episode, “The Repo Man in the Septic Tank,” a repo man’s remains are found in a septic tank, and the Jeffersonian team must work together to figure out who the killer is. When the team discovers that the victim had a troubled past, some key witnesses from his earlier days become potential suspects. Meanwhile, handsome and charming Rodolfo Fuentes (guest star Ignacio Serricchio) has defected from Cuba, where he was a forensic anthropologist, but now needs an internship to complete his degree. Brennan agrees to try him out as an intern on a case, and Brennan and Booth discuss whether or not Christine should have a religious upbringing.

To see how the religion discussion goes for our favorite crime-fighting couple, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching The Following, Rick and Morty, Mom, Mike & Molly, The Blacklist, The Voice, Star-Crossed, Intelligence, Teen Wolf, and Worst Cooks in America.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/17/14

Welcome, Monday. Most of us don’t like you, but you continue to torment us. You and Old Man Winter should get together and go… Never mind me. 😉 It’s warming up outside, but not completely. Still, it’s better than the frigid temperatures it was. Some people have work off today for the holiday. My kid has it off school, so at least there’s that. Now, on to better things, like what we’re recommending you watch on TV tonight. 😉

Jenny’s Choice

castle217smallI’m so thrilled that Castle is on ABC because we’re not having to wait all these weeks for new episodes. It’s still been two weeks since the last new episode, which is too long. 😉 Last time was all about the murder of a young woman in the fashion industry, which brought Beckett back to her short time as a model. Castle was shocked by that…and thrilled. In the end, it was another man from the company that killed the girl because he was gunning for the boss’s job. But the more important part of the episode was Beckett putting off the wedding as she was trying on a (I’m sorry, but…) terribly ugly wedding dress as a favor for the fashion queen/her ex-boss, then getting the dress as a gift from said ex-boss, then telling Castle she would rather get married sooner than later. Turned out she was feeling sad because her mom wouldn’t be there, but she realized that it wouldn’t matter if she put it off—her mother wouldn’t be there anyway, and she loved Castle and wanted to marry him. I just hope something happens to the dress and she has to choose something else, because it really was ugly. *laugh* She can usually make anything look good, but… Ack.

On tonight’s episode, “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” the murder of a high school mean girl draws Castle back to one of his many alma maters, where he is giddy to learn that the evidence points to a surprising perpetrator: a teenage telekinetic, throwing Beckett and him into a real-life Carrie.

See if Castle & Beckett can catch the murderer tonight on ABC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Almost Human, Bitten, Worst Cooks in America, Mystery Diners, & Intelligence.

This will be short and sweet because I figured out that apparently, my son can get well and THEN I can get sick after two days. Not fun, I tell you… Not fun. So check out what we think you should be watching while I curl up and feel like I want to die.

thementalist217smallIt’s been three weeks since the last new episode of The Mentalist, which is too long, in my opinion. Last time, the case dealt with a 25-year-old case that involved the Visualize group…and a Red John smilie face on the side of a big barn. It put Jane one step closer to figuring out who Red John is, since he had to have been there when he was a certain age 25 years ago. Jane has narrowed it down to less than 500 names, if I remember right. Considering how many he started with…that’s pretty impressive. We’ll see if it actually goes somewhere, though. Oh, and I do hope Amanda Righetti (Van Pelt) has her baby soon and comes back so her character can get out from behind that blasted desk! LOL I want her back in the field!

On tonight’s episode, “Red in Tooth and Claw,” the team delves into the surprisingly cutthroat world of academics in a case involving a graduate student at a natural history museum. Rob Benedict (Supernatural) and Zuleikha Robinson (Homeland) guest star.

See who Patrick Jane can offend in the name of justice tonight on CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Mentalist @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Chopped, Worst Cooks in America, & Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/1/12

I hope everyone has had a good weekend so far! Mine started early on Friday, when I got to meet 2 friends that I’ve known for a few years online when they brought their daughters to Kansas City to the American Girl store and to visit me! It was such a blast, even though they were only here for a couple of hours. Next time, they’ll leave the kids at home and come down for much longer. We had a lot of fun just talking books and writers and fanfiction, which is how we all met. Then Saturday, I slept a good portion of the afternoon, so it was nice and relaxing! LOL Anyway, some good stuff on tonight, so check out what we think you should be watching.

It’s been a pretty good season of Worst Cooks in America. I’m actually not TOO unhappy with the final two. Kelli, on Anne’s team, isn’t my favorite, but then…I didn’t like quite a few on her team, so… lol Kelli is a bit of a worry wart and spaz in the kitchen. She tends to get flustered easily, which is why I’m not her biggest fan. But she has also done well on several challenges, so she might do ok in the finale. On Bobby’s team, I was going to be ok with either Melissa, who was my personal favorite among all the contestants, and Vinnie, who was one of my other favorites. I wish it could have been the two of them in the final two, but they were both on Bobby’s team, so unfortunately, one of them had to go last week. Hopefully Vinnie can learn to manage his time. If he does that, he should win easily.

On tonight’s episode, “Worst to First: The Final Battle,” the two reminaing recruits are challenged to prepare a three-course meal and serve it in New York City’s David Burke Kitchen to three culinary experts, and the winner of the $25,000 grand prize will be determined based on the meal.

See who wins tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Worst Cooks in America @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching and DVRing Cupcake Wars, Iron Chef America, Breakout Kings, Coming Home, & Unchained Reaction.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/4/12

It’s Sunday, which means the start of a new week. It’s kind of a slow week, but there are some great episodes on every night…including tonight, so check out what we think you should be watching.

I’m still really enjoying Worst Cooks in America. Bobby Flay is great as a judge/mentor against Anne Burrell. He’s tough, and maybe not as patient as she is, but you know he has all the women swooning. LOL I was so pleased last week when the bottom two on Bobby’s team were Erica and Sarina. I didn’t know which I disliked more. Sarina’s baby voice and absolute cluelessness in the kitchen (not just inept but totally damn clueless) irritate the hell out of me, but Erica… Yeah, I was pleased when she went home. On Anne’s side, I wasn’t quite as happy that Sad Bob went home, but he wasn’t my favorite, so in the end, it could have been worse.

On tonight’s episode, “Late Night/Date Night,” the recruits have to cook up a late night treat and prepare a romantic entree for two.

See who goes home tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Worst Cooks in America @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching Breakout Kings, Cupcake Wars, Iron Chef America, CSI: Miami, & GCB.
