If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/12/16

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!

Megan’s Choice

shannarachronicles2016smallIt may seem at times that all I watch is procedurals or cooking shows, but that’s not true. I am also a sucker for a good fantasy show, and The Shannara Chronicles has definitely caught my interest. It has adventure, magic, and unlikely heroes, all of which make for a fantastic series, not to mention it’s based off a bestselling book series written by the talented Terry Brooks.

In case you missed last week’s 2-hour premiere, here’s a brief rundown so you can easily catch up this week. The show takes place in a magical land known as the Four Lands, eons after the fall of humans. There is a special Elvish tree, Ellcrys, which protects the land from the demon world, but unfortunately it is dying. This sets the trio of Amberle, Wil Ohmsford, and Allanon on a quest to find a new, safe home for the tree before the boundary between the worlds is completely dissolved, bringing an unstoppable demon army into the Four Lands.

If you are a fan of fantasy and adventure, then you simply must tune into watch this show!

On last week’s episode, we got to know the characters and watched as the tree was found to be sick and the trio was formed. There were demons and love stories along with great fight scenes. If it wasn’t exciting enough for you, then you need to re-evaluate your idea of excitement.

On tonight’s episode, “Fury,” Wil and Amberle are kidnapped by Eretria and Cephalo while returning to the palace. But the Rovers are the least of their worries. Wil must learn how to use the Elfstones before a bloodthirsty Fury kills them all.

To see if this unlikely group can defeat the Fury, tune in to MTV at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Teen Wolf, Chopped, and New Girl.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/22/13

Gotta love the flu that’s going around. We’re all well here in my house, but Megan’s poor baby is sick, so she’s taking the day off. Kyle is still gone on vacation, so it’s up to JJ and me to tell you what we think you should be watching on this chilly Tuesday. 😉

Jenny’s Choice #1

flashpoint123smallTonight is the series finale of Flashpoint. I’m so very sad about that because I’ve loved it from the very beginning. I’m thrilled they found a way to let Jules and Sam be happy and together. I like that Ed has finally been getting help for the stress of his job and his having to shoot the teenage girl earlier in the season and that his son is beginning to come around to realizing why his dad has been behaving the way he has. I love Greg’s son and that he seems to be a good kid and wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps. I wish we’d gotten to see Wordy more lately, and I still have hopes that Spike and Winnie will get together. It’s not too late…right? LOL

Part one of the finale aired last week, but I didn’t want to watch before part two tonight. I’m scared that something bad will happen to one of the beloved members of the team. I will cross my fingers that everyone comes out of this okay. I’ll miss the show terribly, and honestly, I may end up buying it all on DVD because I love it that much. *sigh* Here’s hoping Enrico Colantoni, Amy Jo Johnson, David Paetkau, and the rest of the cast find another great show soon!

On tonight’s episode, “Keep the Peace, Part Two,” a series of bombs in public buildings tear the city apart with terror as Team One hunts down the bomber and rescues civilians. In Team One’s final showdown, tragedy and triumph collide as peace is kept at a painful cost.

Don’t miss the exciting drama tonight on ION at 11/10c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/12

You know how slow last night was because of football, baseball, and the presidential debate? Tonight more than makes up for it. It’s a crazy-busy night of television, but we’re determined to let you know what we think you should be watching. So take a look and see if we can help you narrow it down. 😉

I waffled back and forth on what to pick tonight because there’s so much on. Did I want to go comedy, with Raising Hope or Ben and Kate, both of which I adore? Or did I want to go drama, with one of the NCIS shows? In the end, I’m choosing Flashpoint again this week. Last week’s season premiere was absolutely heartbreaking. The entire team took it so hard when Ed had to shoot the young woman who was threatening & trying to shoot her abusive, psycho father. Ed was strong in front of the team, but once he was home, he let it all hit him and showed how much it had affected him. Everyone was upset, but Raf seemed to be taking it the hardest back at the office. I thought he quit because they said they couldn’t do it differently next time, that when they shoot like Ed did, they can’t shoot to wound or maim. But from pictures of next week’s ep, he’s in there…so maybe he didn’t quit? I dunno. I hope not. I like him…although not as much as I like Sam. (What is it about Canadian cop shows & sexy characters named Sam?! Megan, any ideas? LOL)

On tonight’s episode, “No Kind of Life,” a gunpoint abduction at a doctor’s office puts Team One on a collision course with a desperate felon as his bleeding son’s life rests in Sam’s hands.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Raising Hope, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Vegas, Happy Endings, The New Normal, Dancing with the Stars, Ben and Kate, 19 Kids & Counting, Chopped, Covert Affairs, Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S., & Sons of Anarchy.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/12

It’s a bit of a slower night tonight because of the political debate. I’ll be SO glad when November has come and gone. I’m so tired of politics and all the crap that goes with it—especially all the ads on TV and making me miss shows! *grump* Even so, there’s some great stuff on tonight (including the return of Covert Affairs, which is reaching high points in drama!), so check out what we think you should be watching, and be sure to let us know if you’re going to take our genius advice. 😉

I’m particularly excited about tonight’s season premiere of Flashpoint on ION. It started airing a few weeks ago in Canada (lucky Megan!), but for the US viewers, tonight’s our first chance to get a look at the team after last season’s tense finale. Poor Parker has been put through the wringer emotionally. Team One’s leader was having problems in his personal life, but he’s finally begun mending fences with his teenage son. The relationship between Sam and Jules was discovered, and we thought they might be told they had to split—either personally or professionally—but at the end of the finale, Parker gave them the news that they were able to stay together and stay on Team One, which is awesome. Ed is still working on the team, and things with his wife are better than they were. The finale left off with the team and their families at the annual team picnic, where everything was great. Even Wordy was there. I hope that doesn’t mean bad things are headed our way for season five… Eek!

On tonight’s premiere, “A Broken Peace,” with help from the fugitive’s daughter, Team One searches the city in pursuit of James Mitchell, an armed and extremely volatile man who is hunting his ex-wife. Ed is forced to take a tragic shot that he was not prepared to take.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/24/12

This week so far has been great, and I’m looking forward to another wonderful night of television. Even though a lot of our favorite shows are off this week, there are still a few to keep us amused. Let’s see what you should be watching to keep this week going strong.

Megan’s Choice

Last week, Remodeled premiered and started the journey to change modeling agencies everywhere. I admire Paul Fisher’s goal to make the world of modeling a safer place. Can he do it? I’m not sure, actually, but I’m so glad he’s trying. It’s time the world started to nurture our young people, instead of giving them unhealthy, unattainable models to look at.

On tonight’s episode, “Modeling Agency or Modeling School?” Paul visits an agency in South Dakota and is outraged that the owner is running a modeling school for girls who have little chance of succeeding as models.

To see if Paul Fisher can indeed make a difference, tune in to The CW at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Remodeled @ Clicker.
