Saturday on TV – 4/19/14

Saturday is the series premiere of The Real History of Science Fiction on BBC America at 10/9c. From Star Wars to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and from Jurassic Park to Doctor Who, each program is packed with contributors behind these creations and traces the developments of “Robots,” “Space,” “Invasion,” and “Time.” Narrated by Mark Gatiss, Doctor Who writer, actor, and co-creator of the BBC’s Sherlock, the series determines why science fiction is not merely a genre… for its audience it’s a portal to a multi-verse – one that is all too easy to get lost in. Among those taking part are: William Shatner (Star Trek), Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek), Steven Moffat (Doctor Who), Richard Dreyfuss (Close Encounters of the Third Kind), Chris Carter (The X-Files), Ronald D Moore (Battlestar Galactica), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Schlock), David Tennant (Doctor Who), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), John Carpenter (Dark Star, The Thing), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Stardust), Kim Stanley Robinson (Mars Trilogy), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise), Ursula K Le Guin (The Left Hand of Darkness), Syd Mead (Blade Runner), Kenny Baker (Star Wars), Anthony Daniels (Star Wars), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), Peter Weller (Robocop), Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica), and many more.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Tobacco Wars on CMT at 10/9c. Adairville, Ky., is home to the high-stakes world of Kentucky’s dark fire industry. Fourth and fifth generation tobacco men compete to survive by any means necessary — gambling all, not just on their notoriously precarious crop, but on the wild wagers that are a fundamental part of their way of life. It’s a risky business, but when you’re a Kentucky tobacco man, your whole life’s a gamble. Dark fire tobacco, named after the perilous barn fire drying process, is used in cigars and chewing tobacco (not cigarettes). Competition to produce this most perilous, but lucrative crop (valued at approximately $3,000 per acre annually), is fierce. The farmers of Tobacco Wars are country proud and love their lives to the fullest, knowing no other way to live life. They work hard and play even harder, a living embodiment of the old saying “eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we may die.” It’s the highest stakes anyone could imagine. Their farms, their lives and their family names are on the line each and every year.

Tonight is also a new episode of The Graham Norton Show on BBC America at 11/10c, with guests Andrew Garfield, Emmat Stone, Jamie Foxx, and musical guest Paolo Nutini.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/18/14

Yesterday was a very long day for me, so I’m extra glad today is Friday. I need the weekend. There’s some good stuff on, so check our Kyle’s and my recommendations. :)

Jenny’s Choice

lastmanstanding418smallLast Man Standing has been a lot of fun this season. I like that Ryan hasn’t been nearly as annoying recently. I also like that Mandy has an actual direction she is heading now in terms of her future. Some of my favorite scenes, though, are with Mike and his almost-clone, Eve. She can really throw out some good one-liners and snappy comebacks exactly like a snarky teenage girl.

On tonight’s episode, “April Come She Will,” when Vanessa’s mooching sister April comes to visit, Mike suspects it’s because she needs money. Sure enough, April explains that she’s decided to have a baby but doesn’t have the funds for a donor egg. While Vanessa and Mike aren’t on board, Mandy comes up with a solution. Meanwhile at Outdoor Man, Mike tries pulling a prank on Chuck Larabee that gives him some new perspective. Jonathan Adams & Christine Moore guest star.

Find out what solution Mandy comes up with tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing at Unforgettable, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.
