If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/6/13

What a beautiful weekend we had weather-wise here! It was sunny and warm—perfect weather for some hiking. Unfortunately, my other half twisted his ankle hiking, so that required me to play nursemaid, but it was okay, because I’m good at that role. Besides the little mishap, I had a fabulous weekend, and I’m ready for a whole new week of television, so let’s see what’s on.

thevoice2013smallWhen The Voice first premiered, I was concerned about another singing show, but after a couple of episodes, I was hooked! After a few seasons, this has become my favorite singing competition show to watch because of the quality of contestants, as well as the amazing coaches. I have to admit that I am loving having Shakira there over Christina Aguilera because I was so tired of Christina—her horrible wardrobe and predictable performances from her team.

As far as teams go this season, I am really torn between Team Adam and Team Blake because they both have some incredible talent, as well as they are so amusing to watch!

On tonight’s episode, “The Live Playoffs, Part 1,” the Top 16 perform for America’s vote.

To see which team really brings it tonight, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching Warehouse 13, Hawaii Five-0, Mike & Molly, 2 Broke Girls, Bates Motel, and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

castle56smallLast week’s Castle was beautiful and perfect. It was by far the most unique way to do a clip show that I’ve ever seen. It started when Beckett, Castle, & the others went after a bomber, recently been released from prison, who they thought was responsible for two new murders. While Esposito & Ryan were chasing the suspect down in the alley, Beckett & Castle were looking through the apartment. When caught, the guy flicked a switch to arm a bomb, and when the cops & Castle were trying to get out of the apartment, Beckett stepped on a pressure plate. To keep her occupied, Castle asked who she thought fell for whom first. Of course, each of them said the other, and that led to a debate and clips from the history of their working relationship to the personal. When time was almost up, Beckett finally convinced Castle to leave the apartment (although he came back in minutes later and they did what they do best and solved the case, saving her life), and on his way out, she stopped him and said she loved him. It was stunningly beautiful. Then at the end, we figured out Captain Gates knew about them and had ignored it so she’d have plausible deniability. As long as they continue to keep it professional (or as professional as Castle can ever be. 😉 ) at work, she will continue on how she was—and she encouraged Beckett to kiss him, saying he’d earned it (he’d stayed with her when he shouldn’t have and he’d helped save her life by helping figure out how to crack the case).

All in all, it was one of my favorite episodes. Emotional, tense, sweet, funny, and a great Captain Gates moment that we’ve all been waiting for. Here’s hoping that bodes well for the last two episodes of the season!

On tonight’s penultimate episode, “The Human Factor,” when Homeland Security inexplicably seals the crime scene of a car bombing, Castle and Beckett find themselves with two mysteries on their hands: who murdered the victim, a government whistleblower, and why are federal agents trying to take over the case? The plot thickens when they discover that the victim wasn’t killed by a car bomb but by a missile from a military drone. (Is that the latest theme? A drone was set up to look like a murder weapon on last week’s Person of Interest, too…) Carlos Bernard (24) guest stars.

Find out if Homeland Security is able to keep Beckett & Castle out of the investigation tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement, 2 Broke Girls, Defiance, Mike & Molly, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, Hawaii Five-0, & Warehouse 13.

defiance56smallI have really been enjoying Defiance. Last week, someone was using Hellbug pheromones to target individuals for revenge. We learned more about Irisa’s past and about the Irathian culture in general. And Nolan discovered that Irisa’s visions were actually a gift, not just night terrors.

I like the way the show is giving us interesting stories of the week and furthering the overarching myhtology and mystery, but also giving us a more detailed background on one or more of the Defiance residents or races in each episode. We’ve seen back stories on Irisa and the Tarrs, and tonight, I’m excited to learn more about the Rosewater sisters.

On tonight’s episode, “A Well Respected Man,” Kenya is kidnapped, and Rafe moves a step closer to learning the truth about his son’s death.

See how (if?) Kenya is found and rescued tonight on Syfy at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Castle, Revolution, Bates Motel, Warehouse 13, and The Big C.

warehouse1356smallLast week, we (finally!) got the return of Warehouse 13 after the cliffhanger with Artie and the orchid. Now that the pandemic has been averted, there is still the matter of seeing if Artie can turn back to normal—and it appears we have a new Big Bad… Time to get season 4.5 underway!

On tonight’s episode, “Parks and Rehabilitaion,” Pete and Claudia investigate murders involving a radical environmentalist group, while Artie tries to get back to work, but the Warehouse has another opinion.

To see how Artie is coping and why Pete and Claudia are teamed up together, tune in to Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Oh Sit!, The Voice, 2 Broke Girls, 90210, Defiance, Castle, and Revolution.
