If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/7/14

What a crazy week. My son’s home from Florida, and we were roughhousing Wednesday night…only to make my glasses completely bent out of shape. Oops. *sigh* I can wear them, but it’s not comfortable—on my face or my vision. I ordered a new pair online, but here’s hoping the prescription I have is right, even though it’s OLD, and here’s hoping the frame I picked out fits and works well with my face. I should get them tomorrow, so we’ll see! (Pun intended. LOL) On that note, check out what we’re recommending tonight.

Jenny’s Choice

bluebloods117smallLast week’s Blue Bloods was, as always, fantastic. A man was beaten so badly in a case of road rage that they weren’t sure he was going to live. He did, thank goodness, but after his niece (who was in a different state altoghether) was threatened by the Albanian mob, he declined to identify the bad guy in a lineup. This guy was one the NYPD had tried multiple times to get for things like murder, and he’d skated every time, so Danny and Frank weren’t very happy. In fact, he sort of skated yet again, when Interpol got him and sent him back to Serbia. Frank wasn’t happy, since there was no guarantee the guy wouldn’t get off light or get out of punishment altogether. Meanwhile, Danny’s new boss seemed at first like she wasn’t going to be someone I would like, but in the end, I loved how she sat down to help Danny with the files. And even though Erin was contemplating going into private practice, I knew she wouldn’t switch sides. There was just no way she could go from prosecuting criminals to doing whatever she had to do to get them off. Nicki will find some other way to pay for college…

On tonight’s episode, “Shoot the Messenger,” Frank is blindsided during an on-air interview when he and the interim District Attorney disagree over an issue. Meanwhile, Danny’s new boss rides along with him, but their methods and personalities clash as they investigate a drive-by shooting. CBS This Morning anchor Norah O’Donnell guest stars as herself.

See how the Regan family deals with problems this week tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, The Amazing Race, On the Menu, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Cristela, Grimm, Hawaii Five-0, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, & Z Nation.

Megan’s Choice

hawaiifiveo117smallJust what the doctor ordered when it’s cold outside: an always hot episode of Hawaii Five-0. It’s a great night because it’s the 100th episode of the show. In the beginning, there were plenty of naysayers who were convinced that a remake like this one was a bad idea, but they were obviously wrong. Thank goodness. This season has been a rollercoaster emotionally for our cast so far, especially for poor Danny, who is still blaming himself for his brother’s death, even though we all know there was nothing that could have been done. I will say that the scene with Danny shooting Reyes in the head a couple of episodes ago was one of the best scenes of the entire series so far—Scott Caan really deserves an Emmy nomination for that scene.

Last week, we watched as Steve and Danny helped Jerry catch Ferrell, who had not only kidnapped Jerry but was indeed counterfeiting money. After we learned that Jerry was right all along, Steve helped put the pieces together, and they nailed Ferrell in the end. I’m really loving Jerry and hope he sticks around for a long time. The other case of the week involved a character, Jack Knife, from an older horror movie—but in this case, someone was mimicking the murders, and boy was it gruesome. We found out that it was the son of man that had been severely bullied as a teen, and his son took revenge on all the men involved who contributed to making his father so weak.

On tonight’s episode, “Ina Paha (If Perhaps),” when McGarrett is kidnapped by Wo Fat, he experiences what would have happened to the team if they had taken a very different paty.

To watch what’s bound to be a fantastic and story changing 100th episode, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Amazing Race, Grimm, Blue Bloods, Constantine, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, and Z Nation.

Kyle’s Choice

znationsmallLast week on Z Nation, the Zunami hit, and our dehydrated survivors took cover from the dust/zombie storm in a nearby mortuary. As the Zs started to break into the building, the gang hid in the morgue drawers while Murphy kept watch. Murphy then made his way to the roof and stole some water from a woman and her child who had been hiding up there. However, on his way back down, he left the door open and called for the woman’s zombified husband to join his family. Meanwhile, Citizen Z was visited by a mysterious cosmonaut whose space capsule landed near the base. At first he was happy to have the company and the pair played some games, but Citizen Z soon started to suspect something wasn’t right, and the two got into a fight. As Yuri was choking him to death, Citizen Z realized this was all a dream and that the carbon monoxide alarm was going off, so he quickly got himself and the dog out of the building and into some fresh air.

I’m fascinated by this transformation that is going on with Murphy—both the physical and the mental aspects of it. He keeps looking more and more dead with each episode, and he is getting crueler and more brazen in his lack of empathy toward others. He also seems drawn to the power of being able to command and control the zombies. It seems like it’s only a matter of time before he turns on the members of his own group. What is Murphy turning into, and will the group get him to his destination before it’s too late for him to be of help in the search for a cure? And what’s been going on with Mack and Addy since they split from the group?!

On tonight’s episode, “Die Zombie Die…Again,” Mack attempts to go on a real date with Addy but ends up stuck in some Groundhog Day-like nightmare.

Find out how Mack gets free of the time-loop tonight on Syfy at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Amazing Race, Cristela, Grimm, Constantine, and Haven.
