If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/17/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice #1

rizzoliandisles217smallMy first pick tonight is the winter premiere of Rizzoli & Isles. This season has been really rough. The team learned about Frost’s death and Jane was dealing with her pregnancy when she ended up losing the baby during a case gone bad. Meanwhile, Maura’s relationship with her professor boyfriend is really going well, and before the break, she met his 12-year-old daughter, which went well. Jane and the team are still reeling from Frost’s death, and things are up in the air with Angela, who quit her job and broke up with Cavanaugh to start fresh (sounds like a midlife crisis to me, but whatever…). It’ll be interesting to see how the last three episodes of the season go from here. (By the way… Why take a winter break and then have to come back for only three episodes?? Why not just finish airing them with the others??)

On tonight’s episode, “Bridge to Tomorrow,” after Jane jumps from a bridge to save a prosecutor suspected of his murdering his mistress, Maura is terrified that she has lost her best friend. The squad must now renew the search to find the real killer. Meanwhile, Angela enlists Frankie’s help as she applies to new jobs.

See how Jane survives jumping from the bridge tonight on TNT at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/4/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

worstcookssmallI love a good cooking competition series, and Food Network’s Worst Cooks in America is one of the best. It’s unbelievable how BAD some (most) of these cooks are each season. Anne Burrell is back, and this season, Tyler Florence (host of The Great Food Truck Race) is joining her in the mentor seat. I can’t wait to see how his teaching style differs from Anne’s. And based on the promos I’ve seen on TV recently, this season’s sure to be a lot of fun.

On tonight’s episode, “It Just Keeps Getting Worse,” Anne Burrell and Tyler Florence choose 14 contestants from an open call to bring back to Boot Camp, where the recruits prepare their signature dishes for the chefs; Anne and Tyler choose their recruits and teach them to create a romantic meal.

Check out the new recruits tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Galavant, The Great British Baking Show, Guy’s Grocery Games, The Librarians, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, CSI, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/16/14

Holy crap… Christmas is less than 6 weeks away! (Don’t shoot the messenger!) I cannot believe how fast time is flying by, and now all the fall finales start, as well as a bunch of Christmas specials, which I am always excited for. Speaking of Christmas specials, let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice #1

angelsandornamentssmallYou can always count on Hallmark Channel to bring us some holiday cheer, and tonight they’re bringing it with a movie, Angels and Ornaments. I’m aware some of you may be avoiding these movies because it’s only November, but this TV addict is embracing the joy. One of the reasons that this movie caught my eye was because it stars Jessalyn Gilsig from Glee and one of my favorite actors from Flashpoint, Sergio Di Zio, who played Spike.

The movie follows Gilsig’s character, Corrine, as she prepares for her favorite holiday, auditioning for the Christmas concert at church and playing carols for shoppers at the music store where she works with her childhood friend Dave (Graham Abbey, Covert Affairs). Her holiday season gets a strange twist of romantic fate when a new co-worker, Harold (Di Zio), tries to form a love connection between Corrine and Dave. With Harold’s help, Corrine starts to see her friend in a different light, but she’s curious about Harold’s interest in her life. What Corrine doesn’t know is that Harold is on a Christmas Eve deadline from a higher power to make this holiday fairytale come true.

It’s a feel-good, romantic movie that is bound to help you get into the holiday spirit, so join me in feeling the joy when you tune in to Hallmark Channel at 8/7c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/14

Earlier this week, I had a great time at the 8th Annual Syfy Digital Press Tour event in Orlando—we had panels with the cast/creators of many Syfy series and got exclusive access to the Harry Potter parks at Universal Studios. I’ll be posting write-ups and videos soon at NoReruns.net, but right now, I’m finishing up the week visiting with my parents. Due to all of this, I’ve fallen way behind on my TV this week, having only watched three episodes of TV since Saturday! But in case you are all caught up on your DVR backlog, we’ve got a couple of suggestions for you to check out tonight.

newsreaders1023smallTonight at midnight, Newsreaders returns to Adult Swim (Cartoon Network) for a second season. This hilarious Childrens Hospital spin-off is a parody of news magazine shows like 60 Minutes. I really enjoyed the first season of fake news stories led by anchor Louis LaFonda (Mather Zickel), but this year, Reagan Biscayne (Alan Tudyk, Firefly) takes over the fake news desk. And the season looks like the season will be chock-full of fun, amazing guest stars—Billy Ray Cyrus, Malin Akerman, Rob Huebel, Rob Riggle, Martin Starr, James Urbaniak, Tom Lennon, Danny Pudi, Scott Adsit, Jenna Fischer, Mel Cowan, Ryan Hansen, Marc Evan Jackson, Steve Little, Harold Perrineau, the Sklar Brothers, David Wain, and David Hasselhoff.

On tonight’s premiere, “F-Dancing, Are You Decent?” the prom is threatened by a new dance. Also: Clavis Kim answer the question: “Are you a racist?”

Check out the funny tonight on Adult Swim/Cartoon Network at 11:59/10:59c.

I’ll also be recording Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, Bad Judge, A to Z, Parenthood, and Gracepoint.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/12/14

As I write this up, I’m watching the latest episode of Z Nation. I gotta say, this show amuses me to no end. It truly cracks me up. DJ Qualls is hysterical, and 10K rocks. But enough about me… ;) Read on to see what we’re recommending tonight.

Jenny’s Choice

csi1012smallOn last week’s CSI, a robbery turned homicide at a medical marijuana shop ended up being a kidnapping…but then it turned out the wife of the shop’s owner set it all up—including her own “kidnapping” and that of their kids’—in order to get the money. It was pretty sad, actually. But I love this show. I’m interested to see how long they’re going to drag out the Gig Harbor Killer story line. Now that Julie’s in Seattle looking into the background of the brothers, I’m sure it’ll be put on the back burner for the most part.

On tonight’s episode, “Bad Blood,” Sara and Greg are quarantined after responding to a crime scene that’s contaminated with a deadly pathogen. James Lesure (Men at Work, Mr. Sunshine, Las Vegas) & Lauren Stamile (Burn Notice, Grey’s Anatomy) guest star.

Check out this timely story line tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Halloween Wars, Catch a Contractor, & Cutthroat Kitchen.
