If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/31/14

This crazy week is finally done, and I am really looking forward to the weekend. Tomorrow, my family and I are going to watch dog sled races at a winter festival in town—yes, we’re Canadian, and we really do have dog sled races. While I sit here and get everyone’s snow gear ready, I’m going to be watching some fantastic TV, so let’s see what’s on.

Megan’s Choice #1

bones131smallI was very happy to hear that Bones has been renewed for a 10th season—much deserved, especially after this season. There have been so many character-driven stories this season, and I’m loving how much Sweets has been involved. Last week, we watched as he went undercover at a chess club to find a killer. Turns out that our favorite FBI psychiatrist was once an expert chess player, and he used his skill to catch the young man who killed one of the national champions. The guy killed the victim because he didn’t want him to marry his mom. I thought it was really great how Sweets figured out he did it because he wouldn’t sacrifice his queen during the game. Excellent writing.

On tonight’s episode, “The Heiress in the Hill,” the team investigates the murder of a female kidnapping victim, whose remains were found buried at a park.

To see if the team can catch this murderer, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

hawaiifiveo131smallLast week’s Hawaii Five-0 was an emotional one, especially for Chin. Internal Affairs questioned him about his father’s murder 15 years ago and how his then-new relationship with Malia and her family might have hurt the investigation. In the end, Chin was absolved, but it seems like T-Bag—I mean IA Detective Rex Coughlin—has it in for him, so I have a feeling we might not have seen the last of him. I did love how the rest of the team stuck up for him, and I loved seeing how Chin met Malia way back when.

On tonight’s episode, “Na hala a ka makua (Sins of the Father),” McGarrett and Danny are kidnapped by an escaped convict who wants Five-0 to prove his innocence. Meanwhile, Danny must deal with Grace after she punches someone at school.

Find out how Steve & Danny get away and why Grace throws a fist tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, Last Man Standing, The Neighbors, Enlisted, Raising Hope, & Blue Bloods.
 

Kyle’s Choice

helix131smallWow, what a surprise and unfortunate turn of events on last week’s episode of Helix! First, one of the isolated infected men in the basement decided to cut off the base air supply as a way to force his release, but Hataki’s solution was to shoot and kill the man and have Daniel dispose of the body. Upstairs, Alan injected Peter with a highly experimental and volatile drug in hopes of saving his brother. At first, Peter was lucid, but then he flatlined into a vegetative state. Meanwhile, Sarah found Julia’s initials on the wall in the building, but Julia didn’t have any memory of being in the facility before. And shortly after Doreen discovered that the virus contained spliced animal and human DNA, Balleseros shot her and pushed a shelf of infected rats on top of her, and the rats started gnawing on her dead body.

I was shocked to see Doreen, one of the main characters, get killed off after just 4 episodes! The actress was there when I went to visit the set and gave no hint of her character’s fate! Now that the show has shown us that anyone can go, is Peter next? What does Hataki want with Julia? Do they have some kind of history or relationship? And what is Balleseros’s ultimate mission or motive? This has been an exciting season so far, with lots of gruesome twists and turns—I’m excited to see what happens next!

On tonight’s episode, “The White Room,” members of the CDC team come to the realization that nobody is who they seem to be at the base.

See the drama tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Neighbors, Bones, Enlisted, Raising Hope, and Banshee.
 

Megan’s Choice #2

bluebloods131smallI’ve been getting a nice dose of Donnie Wahlberg, between The Wahlburgers and Blue Bloods. This makes Megan a happy girl. Tonight, we get to see our sexy detective tear up the streets as usual as he takes on crime in New York. Last episode was particularly emotional for Danny because it dealt with an ex-marine who went off the deep end and attacked his wife, as well as kidnapped his son. In the end, no matter how hard Danny tried, he couldn’t save the marine, but he did help save the son. I really enjoyed seeing the weaker side of Danny, because I think it’s going to make him stronger as a character. On a side note, congrats to Donny Wahlberg, who shows off his Blue Bloods directorial debute on tonight’s episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Manhattan Queens,” Danny and Baez investigate the murder of a popular drag queen; Erin is abducted by the mother of a man facing drug charges.

To see if Erin can get out of this horrible situation, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, Enlisted, Shark Tank, and Helix.
