If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/19/13

Did everyone have a good day off yesterday? If you didn’t have it off, I hope you at least had a decent Monday. I did some writing, watched some TV, and enjoyed the cool, cloudy weather. I’m glad that today is a normal day, though, because the kiddo can go back to school. Yay! Finally! LOL As for tonight, there’s some great stuff on, so we’re here to tell you what we think you should be watching. 😉

bodyofproof219smallAt the end of last season of Body of Proof, I was not a happy camper. Peter had been gravely injured by a serial killer that Megan first helped put away; the man escaped prison by killing the guard who was in cahoots with him. Of course, that was after everything Peter had already been through with his girlfriend Dani dying from the whole bioterrorist attack. Poor guy just couldn’t catch a break! I hated that they left it there, with Peter in Megan’s arms, dying unless he was saved in time. Then, over the summer, we found out that not only was Nicholas Bishop (Peter) not returning, neither were John Carroll Lynch (Bud) or Sonja Sohn (Sam). I really loved Peter (although I loved him more before Dani. but whatever), so I was sad that he wouldn’t be back. And how would they write out the three characters?? It was so crazy & sad to think about.

Then I found out they had cast two new actors to play cops that work with Megan…and while I didn’t know the first guy, the second name I did know: Mark Valley. I will ALWAYS think of him as the guy from Keen Eddie, even though he’s been on other things for longer and more recently. But my hubs and I both ADORE him. THEN I heard he was going to be playing an old love interest of Megan’s and there would be a spark still, and I was even more thrilled. And I was right to be. I’ve seen the first two episodes, and they are really, really good. I will miss Peter especially, but Mark Valley’s Tommy is a welcome and fresh edition to the cast, I think.

On tonight’s episode, “Abducted, Part 1,” Megan returns to work months after the events of that fateful night, and she is surprised by a man from her past: Tommy Sullivan, the new detective assigned to her case. Megan, along with Tommy and his rookie partner, Adam Schaeffer (Elyes Gabel, Game of Thrones), must stop a serial killer whose victims are young war veterans. As she learns more about the crime, the stakes rise when she gets a call from the killer…who is holding her teenage daughter, Lacey, hostage.

Don’t miss the season premiere tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Body of Proof @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing NCIS, Raising Hope, The Taste, Cult, NCIS: LA, The New Normal, Cougar Town, Justified, & Total Blackout.

smash219smallThe second season of Smash premiered and I couldn’t have been happier to see some of my favorite TV characters again. It wasn’t as exciting as an opening as I’d have liked, but overall, it still has some sizzle—enough for me to tune in again at least. Honestly, at the end of the day, I’m just happy that Smash is back and filling our living rooms with the sounds of Broadway on a weekly basis.

On tonight’s episode, “The Dramaturg,” Julia and Tom are asked to work with a new collaborator; Kyle and Jimmy present their work; Derek tries to make amends with Ronnie; and Ivy receives help from an old friend.

To see if we can get this show on the road, tune in to NBC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Smash @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching NCIS, NCIS: LA, Go On, The Mindy Project, New Girl, Cult, Body of Proof, and Hart of Dixie.

cultsmallIf The Following isn’t filling your need for a TV show about a cult leader, tonight, The CW premieres Cult. The series follows both a show-within-the-show (also a CW show called “Cult”) but also how it is affecting people in the real world. The show-within-the-show follows the exploits of cult leader Billy Grimm (Robert Knepper, Prison Break, Shameless) and his followers, and an officer named Kelly (Alona Tal, Supernatural, The Killing) who’s trying to locate her missing sister. The “Cult” fans are a devoted bunch, dressing up like the characters, and watching each episode closely to discover hidden clues. One day, Nate Sefton (James Pizzinato) goes missing after ranting to his brother, reporter Jeff (Matthew Davis, The Vampire Diaries), that something sinister was going on with the show. Now Jeff is drawn into world of “Cult” to investigate his brother’s disappearance and discover how it relates to what is happening with the show, both on and off camera. However, this line between reality and the TV series seems to be quite blurred.

I watched the Cult pilot early on Hulu, and while I wasn’t instantly blown away like I was with The Following, I did enjoy the episode. The pilot sets up an interesting premise and has some really creepy moments. I’m interested to see where the series goes from here. I really like this idea of the blurred line between the cult of folks who watch the series-within-the-series and the actual cult on the series-within-the-series itself.

On tonight’s episode, “You’re Next,” the dark underworld of a popular TV show is explored in the opener of this series following a journalist who investigates the mysterious disappearance of his brother.

Find out if you can get into this creepy and odd premise tonight on The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Cult @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Body of Proof, Go On, The New Normal, Smash, Raising Hope, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Hart of Dixie, Justified, White Collar, Face Off, Total Blackout, and The Joe Schmo Show.

cougartown219smallCougar Town is hot! It’s impressive that the show moved channels and changed showrunners but it’s still the same funny, frantic, and fast-paced show with the same characters (unlike a so-far uneven Community). Last week returned to Andy and Ellie’s weird sex life and Jules’s weird sleeping habits and reminded us of how good Grayson is at skating.

On tonight’s episode, “Flirting with Time,” when buyers show interest in Grayson’s house, the crew is quick to judge their potential new neighbors. They also become nostalgic about when redneck Bobby and Jules first moved into the neighborhood. Meanwhile, Wade returns home from Afghanistan early, but Laurie’s initial excitement quickly turns to fear when he becomes too clingy. Edwin Hodge guest stars.

Check out the potential new neighbors tonight on TBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Cougar Town @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching Go On, New Girl, The Mindy Project, and Smash.
