americancrimesmallI really enjoyed ABC’s new series American Crime when I first saw the pilot last summer and have been anxiously waiting for it to air. Rewatching the series premiere last week, I was quickly reminded why. In the opener, divorced couple Russell and Barbara learn that their son has been killed and his wife raped during a robbery at their home. Barbara quickly put herself in the spotlight, contacting a reporter to tell her story. Meanwhile, the police followed a lead that a Hispanic male was seen leaving the scene—and arrested Tony Gutierrez, who couldn’t have been more cooperative and seemingly innocent. Meanwhile, Russ learned that his perfect son was actually a drug dealer, and that was likely what lead to his death.

This series is very thought-provoking and shows how people’s biases and stereotypes can be completely wrong and that drug addicts and dealers come in all shapes and sizes. When young, blonde, white Aubry is battered and beaten, the police immediately ask her if it was her black boyfriend, Carter, who did this to her. Barb has also proven herself to be quite racist and predjudiced, so I’m really looking forward to seeing how she reacts when the truth about her son comes out and what she does when she confronts her son’s killers. I’m also interested to see if Tony will be a victim of circumstances and profiling—he certainly doesn’t seem like he would last a day in prison—or if will he be cleared and set free.

This show has a great cast giving some stellar performances, and I’m looking forward to seeing how all the drama unfolds.

On tonight’s episode, “Episode Two,” Barb and Russ face Carter and Aubry, who are reunited for the first time since being arrested more than a day ago. Meanwhile, a terrified Tony lands in juvenile detention, testing the resolve of his father, Alonzo; investigators find an existing warrant for Hector’s arrest in Mexico; and emerging facts about Matt and Gwen strain the relationship between their parents.

Learn what facts come out about Matt and Gwen tonight on ABC at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Odd Couple, Grey’s Anatomy, The Blacklist, The Slap, Archer, Dig, and Wizard Wars.

allegiance226smallAllegiance has been getting really good. Last week’s episode gave us a bit of a “Da Vinci Code”-like story line. The Russians had replaced Alex’s shirt button with a bug and overheard the Fed’s plan to break into the vault hidden in Philadelphia City Hall, which contained Mikhail’s laptop with valuable intel. The CIA’s plan was to replace the laptop with less sensitive material and allow the Russians to believe they got the information they were looking for. However, Victor sent the O’Connors to grab the computer first. Their mission got very tense, as they were under extreme time pressure, but the O’Connors were able to break into the vault and get the laptop. However, they then found themselves trapped in the ceiling of City Hall as Alex ordered a search of the premises.

I hope every episode moving forward is as tense and action-packed as last week’s! All of this spy drama and action is exactly why I love shows like this! Will Alex find his parents and see that they took the laptop? Will he discover that he is being watching and bugged, and how would he react? Would he go on the offensive, or would he use the situation as a tactical advantage? I’m excited to see more of this story and hope the ratings pick up so we can see it come to a proper conclusion!

On tonight’s episode, “Chasing Ghosts,” a surprising discovery leaves Alex reeling as he tries to adjust his theories in light of what he found at Philadelphia City Hall. Meanwhile, the Rezident questions Katya and Mark’s dedication; and Natalie discovers the dangers of Black Dagger.

Find out what Alex learns tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The Odd Couple, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away With Murder, The Slap, The Blacklist, Archer, and Wizard Wars.

parenthood129smallTonight, after 6 seasons, NBC finally closes the book on the story of the Braverman family with the series finale of Parenthood. Last week, Zeek decided he was not going to undergo the operation, so Sarah decided to move up the wedding so that her father could walk her down the aisle. Meanwhile, Amber went into labor and gave birth to her son, whom she (predictably) named Zeek; Kristina confronted Jasmine about guilting Adam into agreeing to rebuild the Luncheonette; and Joel moved back in with Julia, but getting things back to normal proved to be a bit of a struggle.

Get those tissues ready because tonight is the last we’ll see of the Bravermans, and since there’s a wedding involved, I expect we’ll see the extended family all return for this finale. What kind of closure will we get? Will Adam and Crosby resolve their differences and find a solution that would still let Crosby keep the Luncheonette while Adam pursues other interests (likely teaching at the new school)? It seems like Amber would be a good partner for Crosby, except that she doesn’t have any money to invest. Will Joel and Julia be successful in repairing their marriage? Will we get a glimpse into what lies in the future for all of the children? And will Zeek survive the night, or will this episode be “One Wedding and a Funeral”?

On tonight’s finale, “May God Bless and Keep You Always,” Sarah prepares for her special day. Meanwhile, Hank has big questions for Zeek and Drew; Amber adapts to motherhood; Julia and Joel get a phone call that prompts a crucial decision; and Kristina presents Adam with a plan for the future.

Don’t miss the final episode tonight on NBC at 10/9c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/11/14

Every day takes us one day closer to Christmas and to my son’s trip to London. He was on the local ABC station twice yesterday after they visited the band at school and filmed them practicing inside the band room and outside on the field. So cool! (Literally as well as figuratively! LOL) But enough about me and my family… Check out what Megan & I are recommending tonight for you to watch as you curl up on the couch to watch TV.

bones1211smallTonight is a huge night for Bones. Not only is it the fall finale, but it’s the 200th episode! Only a small handful of shows have ever completed that many episodes while still continuing to be strong every week. Bones is like the Little Engine That Could. No matter where the network put it—what night or time—the audience followed. We’ve been through ups and downs, both professionally and personally, including births, deaths, weddings, the loss of a family fortune, arrests, prison… The list goes on and on. We’ve also seen phenomenal cases, incredibly nasty dead bodies that are too cool to look away from, and moving story lines that make you want to cry. All in all, it’s been an amazing roller coaster of 200 episodes, and I couldn’t be happier that I stuck around for it all.

I’ve seen tonight’s episode, and I have to say that what struck me the most was the beautiful cinematography. Filmed like the Hitchcock films from the 1940s and 1950s, the colors are almost muted but stunningly so, the characters are a great mix of the Bones characters we love and someone new in the “past,” and we get to see Booth and Brennan start all over again in a completely different but really fun way. It’s a great standalone episode that fans of the show will enjoy. Be sure before you watch it tonight to check out the call with Executive Producer Stephen Nathan. He talked about tonight’s episode as well as the future of the show, so it’s a can’t-miss!

On tonight’s episode, “The 200th in the 10th,” Bones pays homage to Alfred Hitchcock in an episode that reimagines the Jeffersonian and FBI teams in 1950s Hollywood. Brennan plays an LAPD detective who’s battling sexism on the force, and Booth is a notorious jewel thief who is far more than he seems to be. When Booth is framed for the murder of a rich socialite, he and Brennan team up to clear his name and find the true identity of the murderer. The huge list of guest stars include: Ryan O’Neal, Patricia Belcher, Billy F. Gibbons, Michael Grant Terry, Eugene Gyrd, Pej Vahdat, Mather Zickel, Carla Gallo, Michael Badalucco, Laura Spencer, Ignacio Serricchio, Andrew Leeds, Sunnie Pelant, and Giuseppe Scoleri.

Check out the fun tonight on FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Big Bang Theory, The Taste, Two and a Half Men, The McCarthys, Beat Bobby Flay, & Elementary.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/20/14

It’s just one week until Thanksgiving—have you made your Black Friday shopping list yet? This guy has… While there are only a couple Blu-rays on my list, I fully expect to end up with way more than that by the time all is said and done! Tonight, ABC’s TGIT lineup has their Fall finales, and many other shows will soon join them in winding down until the new year, but there’s still plenty of shows on TV tonight, and we’ve got a couple of recommendations to help you decide what to watch.

gracepoint1120smallLast week Gracepoint finally diverged a bit from Broadchurch, the original UK series it is a remake of, and with just three episodes left, it was about time! The mystery of Danny’s killer still remains unsolved, but the town’s attention was quickly diverted to another devastating event—the disappearance of Tom Miller. Beth’s psychic told her that Tom was bleeding somewhere. While this initially gave some relief that he may still be alive, volunteer search parties combed the woods but came up with nothing. Meanwhile, Carver was being crucified for his poor detective work in the papers, and things got worse for him when his daughter came to visit and discovered his illness. Elsewhere, a mysterious hiker came out of the woods, demanding food before he would talk, but when shown pictures of Tom, he creepily offered over and over again how handsome he was. Could he be Danny’s killer?

Is Tom’s disappearance the result of something sinister, or is he just off hiding and/or accidentally hurt somewhere? And is this even related to Danny’s disappearance/death? Speaking of Danny, there are still so many suspects among the various strange individuals of Gracepoint—who is telling the truth, who is the murderer, and what was their motive? I feel a lot more invested in this series now that it seems to have finally gone off in its own direction (somewhat). I look forward to seeing how these final 3 episodes play out!

On tonight’s episode, “Episode 8,” trying to adapt to life without Danny, members of the Solano family head back to work and school, while police bring in Susan Wright for questioning after the local paper digs up some unsettling news about her.

Find out what unsettling news is learned about Susan tonight on FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, The McCarthys, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, How to Get Away with Murder, Bad Judge, A to Z, Parenthood, Bones, Covert Affairs, and Newsreaders.
