If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/31/12

Can I just say that I am beyond frustrated with Best Buy? If anyone remembers, my down arrow key broke off my laptop (so bad that it can’t be put back), and the other arrow keys are not quite right. So we finally took it to Best Buy tonight, who said I have the standard warranty, but that the keyboard problems fall under “accidental” coverage. The same one that covers spills and droppage, etc. WTF? Ok, fine. Give me an estimate on how much it’ll cost to fix it. Should be easy, right? Look up the laptop ID, you should be able to figure out how long a keyboard replacement should take and should know how much that will cost. No…we’d have to send it in JUST TO GET THE DAMN ESTIMATE! Again… WTF?! So fine, we’ll call some of the local repair shops. Idiots. Anyway, I’m currently enjoying Monday night’s TV while I write this up, so that’s helping calm me down. 😉 Now, let’s see what we think you should be watching TONIGHT. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice #1

The last new episode of Raising Hope was hysterical, as Jimmy, Virginia, and Burt worked to get their GEDs. None of the three of them would have passed had they not worked together and cheated. It was so wrong, but so cute. I loved how they each used someone to help them and the way those people helped them learn. Jimmy and Sabrina with Hope at the playground? Adorable. Virginia and Maw Maw singing and playing the piano to learn History? Frank working with Burt, acting out the play? Both so great. Fred Williard was brilliant as the teacher who had taught all three of them back in high school. I love this show something fierce. It never fails to make me laugh, and I can’t wait to see and every episode.

On tonight’s episode, “Gambling Again,” Burt becomes obsessed with gambling when he believes he can reclaim all the items he lost when he bet away all the Chance’s belongings nearly 20 years ago. Worried about his bad habit reemerging, Virginia and Jimmy try to intervene but soon get swept up in the betting frenzy and develop their own gambling habit. But their luck begins to run out when they miss Shelley’s staged play written by Sabrina and starring Hope as the lead.

Laugh along with me tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Raising Hope @ Clicker.

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.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/17/12

There may not be a few of my favorites on tonight (Damn you, CBS!), but there is plenty of great TV to watch! Besides what we think you should be watching below, don’t miss a night of new TV on ABC Family, the series premiere of Remodeled on The CW, a new reality competition show on TLC called Ink Master, and the winter premiere of White Collar (which I don’t watch or I’d have recommended it as one of my picks! lol). Now, on to what we do think you should watch!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I’m so excited, because Justified returns for it’s third season! I love a lot of characters on TV, but I’m not sure there is any other character like Raylan Givens, brilliantly played by the gorgeous Timothy Olyphant. The man exudes confidence. He’s not afraid to do what he needs to do to get the job done. Sure, it’s not always…legal, but he’ll do whatever it takes to put the bad guys away—whether it be to prison or into the ground. Last season was fantastic, with the equally brilliant Margo Martindale. Unfortunately, her character committed suicide in the season finale, so she won’t be around this season. But Boyd Crowder, who spent most of last season either waffling between good and bad or pretending to, is back to totally butting heads with Raylan, so that’s cool. All in all, it is always a great show, so don’t miss the season premiere tonight!

On tonight’s episode, “The Gunfighter,” the arrival of a dangerous new player in Lexington puts Raylan on a collision course with a sadistic Dixie Mafia hitman.

Check it out tonight on FX at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Justified @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/4/11

Oh my word, my sinuses are driving me crazy! It feels like something in the back of my nose is tickling me and makes me want to sneeze, but only when I tilt my head certain ways. Bah. It’s very disconcerting! Poor Megan and her family are still dealing with horrible colds, too. I hope you and yours are healthier than we are! lol Even though we’re not all well, we still feel good enough to watch all the great new episodes on tonight. For what we think you should watch, check out our recommendations below!

Jenny’s Choice #1 (yes, multiple choices for me again!)

One of my favorite new comedies is Breaking In on FOX. I love love love Bret Harrison and Christian Slater, and the rest of the cast is brilliantly funny, as well. The show has quickly worked its way into the hearts of both me and my husband, and it’s a must-watch each week. I recently spoke to Alphonso McAuley, who plays Cash, and Executive Producer Adam F. Goldberg, and they were VERY funny. Tonight’s ep looks funny, and they had some fun things to say about it, too. Check out the great questions & answers!

On tonight’s episode, Oz and the team are assigned as protective duty for the sequel to a beloved cult classic at a comic-con convention, and an overly obsessed fanboy is at the top of the list of potential suspects after the only copy of the movie comes up missing.

Don’t miss it tonight on FOX at 9:30/8:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Breaking In @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/9/11

Wednesday means that the week is in full swing, but at the same time it also means that we’re in the home stretch! This week has been nonstop new episodes of your favorite shows, and premieres of some that may even be your new favorite, and today is no different. Wednesday night TV is sure to cure your midweek blues with tons of great choices to take your cares away!

Lisa’s Choice

The long awaited midseason show premieres are here, and they are bringing on the funny starting with ABC’s new show Mr. Sunshine. Matthew Perry (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Friends) and Allison Janney (The West Wing) headline this charming show about a guy named Ben Donovan (Perry), who is the general manager of the Sunshine Center. Every night, Ben is forced to navigate demands, mishaps, and many employee screw ups in order to put on a show for 18,000 screaming people. Janney plays Crystal, Ben’s boss and the arena owner, who is very erratic and seemingly off her rocker. Andrea Anders (Better Off Ted, The Class) stars as Alice, the cutie tomboy marketing director at the arena, who just so happens to be Ben’s friend with benefits. Also along for the ride is Alonzo (James Lesure, Las Vegas), who is a former basketball player who is ruggedly handsome and unbelievably happy. Heather is Ben’s sweet and attractive assistant who fits right in with these merry misfits as she’s got a very colorful background. Rounding things out is Crystal’s son, Roman, who is the arena’s newest, and highly dimwitted, employee.

The pilot episode airs tonight, where we find Ben spending his 40th birthday trying to get rid of a hockey rink that won’t melt, looking for an elephant that becomes lost in the building, and trying to fix a PR nightmare. Meanwhile, Alice decides to end her “casual” relationship with Ben.

Try this new show on for size tonight at 9:30/8:30c on ABC. Learn where to find episodes online of Mr. Sunshine @ Clicker.
