If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/25/15

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!

brooklyn991025smallCaptain Holt is back on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I mean, he was never GONE, but he’s back in charge at the 99. Throughout the episode, the Volture made a rule that the 99 only solved misdemeanors so their solve rate was as high as possible. So when Jake—who kept trying to break the Volture’s rule—came across a new case that he thought was the work of a previous killer, the Oolong Slayer, he connected with Captain Holt and together, they found the killer. Jake told the powers that be that Holt had solved it, and Holt got his job back at the 99. Woohoo!

The other funny story was Terry getting addicted to Boyle’s cacao nibs. Every time he’d solve a case, he’d eat one, but it quickly spiraled out of control and he ballooned up in weight. It was quite amusing to see his addiction. I especially loved his speech about giving up the habit, only to see a bunch of the nibs falling out of his bag. LOL

On tonight’s episode, “Halloween III,” the third installment of Captain Holt and Jake’s Halloween heist culminates with a tie-breaking competition to claim the title of “amazing detective slash genius.” This year, Jake and Holt split the squad into two teams to help them win.

See who wins tonight on FOX at 8:30/7:30c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great British Baking Show, Guy’s Grocery Games, Halloween Wars, CSI: Cyber, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/5/14

Just a moment to grinch… On Friday night, I went to watch Hawaii Five-0 and realized that, while it showed it recorded, it wouldn’t play. I started checking all the other recordings, and everything from Thursday morning on is the same. I’d been catching up on shows from earlier in the week and hadn’t tried anything from Thursday or Friday until then, so I didn’t know. Argh! This same exact thing happened a month ago, and AT&T came out, tested all the lines, found nothing wrong, and replaced the DVR, which meant I lost everything on there. Thankfully it wasn’t too bad. But now the season’s started and I have a bunch of shows on there. Someone is coming out this afternoon (I was surprised but pleased they’d be working on a Sunday…) to look into it, but it’s going to turn out the same way. This was a NEW BOX. What caused it this time? *sigh* So yeah, I’m not a happy camper. On a good note, it’s the start of a new week, which means great new episodes. To help you narrow down what you should be watching, check out our recommendations.

halloweenwars2012smallI’m happy because Halloween Wars returns for a new season tonight. I’ve seen some great cake decorators and sugar artists on shows like Next Great Baker, but the talent on Halloween Wars absolutely blows me away. A cake decorator, sugar artist, and pumpkin carver all team up, and five teams compete to win $50,000, with one team going home each week. The Halloween-themed displays range from humorous to gory to creepy…but all are amazing. The show’s a lot of fun and well worth the watch.

On tonight’s episode, “The Haunted Farm,” five teams go to battle to create mind-blowing Halloween-themed displays that capture a terrifying Haunted Farm. At the end of the battle, one team will be eliminated. Naomi Grossman, who appeared in American Horror Story: Asylum is the guest judge.

See the fun and terrifying displays tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Catch a Contractor, Madam Secretary, CSI, & Cutthroat Kitchen.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/6/13

Yesterday was so strange. I woke up at 6:30 Saturday morning for some reason, and by 2:30 in the afternoon, I was already ready for bed. It felt like 7:00. Then after dinner, while catching up on TV, I looked up at the clock, expecting it to be my kid’s bedtime, when in fact, it was only 8:15. What that has to do with the price of tea in China, I have no idea. I just know we’re halfway through the weekend, and I’ve done almost nothing. *laugh* On that note, let’s see what I can curl up and watch tonight when I think it’s Wednesday at 3:00 in the morning. 😉

choppedsmallIt’s a Food Network night for me tonight—and a Halloween theme, at that! First up is a special episode of Chopped. I love this show because you never know what the chefs are going to reveal when they open the mystery boxes.

On tonight’s Chopped episode, “Extreme Halloween,” the first round basket contains eel and a bloody protein; the second round chefs face something gooey and gory.

halloweenwars106smallMy second Food Network pick is the season premiere of Halloween Wars. This show features teams comprised of a pumpkin carver, cake artist, & candy craftsman. They create heart-stopping Halloween-themed displays that simply make my jaw drop. Each week, one team is eliminated, until the last team standing wins the $50,000 grand prize. This season’s guest judges include author Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse novels), actor Danielle Harris (Halloween), actor Tony Todd (Candyman), and actor Derek Mears (Friday the 13th).

On tonight’s Halloween Wars episode, “Zombie Prom,” five teams go to battle to create mind-blowing Halloween-themed displays that capture a zombie prom. At the end of the battle, one team will be eliminated. Special Guest Judge: Danielle Harris, star of the Halloween franchise!

Check out the creepy but delicious fun tonight on Food Network at 8/7c & 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cousins Undercover, Cutthroat Kitchen, Witches of East End, & The Mentalist.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/28/12

It’s the start of a new week, and I’m looking forward to it because there’s so much great TV on. Before we get to our recommendations for the night, I know some of the country is dealing with severe weather or the threat of it, so I hope everyone stays safe! Now, read on to find out what the boys & I think you should be watching tonight.

There are some immensely talented teams and individuals on this season of Halloween Wars. My favorite team—Dead Men Walking—is still in it, and I believe they are the team to beat. I can’t wait to see what they and the other team left in the competition bring to tonight’s finale. I’m sure everything they do will be jaw-dropping.

On tonight’s episode, “Zombie Wedding,” two teams made up of a pumpkin carving expert, cake artist, and candy craftsman must evoke the scene of a romantic yet horrific zombie wedding. At stake is the Halloween Wars championship and $50,000 grand prize.

See the amazing work and who wins tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Halloween Wars @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, The Amazing Race, Cupcake Wars, & The Mentalist.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/21/12

It’s the start of another great week in television, and while I’m pumped for all the new episodes of our favorites, I’m getting a little sick of the presidential debates interfering with the schedule. Yes, I do realize how self-centred that sounds, but honestly, it’s getting a little old—is it time to vote yet? (Note—I won’t be voting, as I’m Canadian; however, you should!) Enough chit-chat. Let’s get to us bossing you around as to what you should be watching.

The must-see show for ABC this fall has to be 666 Park Avenue, which never fails to cause the hair on my neck to rise from the creepy factor. I’m loving the fact that this season is sprinkled with tons of new twists on dramas, because let’s be honest, there are only so many different takes on crime solving or medical dramas. Last week’s episode had me actually wanting to watch with the lights on. Seriously, how creepy was that whole thing with the little girl? Brrr… Spine chills all over again.

On tonight’s episode, “Hero Complex,” Henry learns that Gavin is under investigation for questionable real-estate transactions and must choose between loyalty to his boss or his friendship with Gavin. Meanwhile, Jane discovers the identity of the thief at the Drake.

To have your weekly fix of terror, tune in to ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of 666 Park Avenue @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, The Amazing Race, Outback Hunters, and Cupcake Wars.
