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!

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.

castle317smallThe last episode of Castle was a good one, especially for Beckett, who was called in on her day off and asked to go undercover as what they thought was supposed to be a drug mule. She quickly figured out she was supposed to be a hired killer. In the end, one of the head bad guys recognized her, so she was nearly killed. The only thing to save her was…Senator Bracken, who turned out to be THE head bad guy of the case. He sent the real hired killer to save her, which makes his debt to her for her saving his life…done. The coolest part of the episode was Beckett having set up the “test” kill on the spur of the moment. Pretty quick thinking!

On tonight’s episode, “The Way of the Ninja,” when a Japanese ballet dancer is mysteriously murdered, Castle and Beckett’s investigation into her secret life uncovers evidence that she was killed by a ninja, and now that ninja is coming after them.

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

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Bones, Dancing with the Stars, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, Worst Cooks in America, Intelligence, & Mystery Diners.

worstcooksinamerica2012smallLast week on Worst Cooks in America, in the first competition, the two teams tried to keep a conveyor belt stocked with sushi for hungry diners. And then in the elimination challenge, each chef had to make two appetizers for a surprise party for the daughter of fashion designer Betsey Johnson. While all of the recruits appeared to recognize this woman, I would bet dollars to doughnuts that maybe one of them (if that) actually knew who she was, and only after they told them her name—and that person would be flight attendant Jamie.

Speaking of Jamie, I would really like to see him go next, but somehow, he keeps winning challenges. I find the way he yells at the other team—as well as his own team—so annoying. We are quickly coming to the end of this competition. Each team only has three chefs left. Who will Anne and Bobby drop from their teams tonight?!

On tonight’s episode, “Two-A-Day,” the recruits face two challenges in one day, beginning with making breakfast for Bobby and Anne.

Find out who goes home tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, Mom, Intelligence, Castle, The Blacklist, Bones, The Following, Switched at Birth, Archer, Bates Motel, Being Human, and Teen Wolf.
