If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/17/15

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

lastmanstanding417smallMy first pick tonight is another comedy. I just did this one recently, but tonight’s the season finale of Last Man Standing, and given that it hasn’t been picked up for another season and tonight could end up being the series finale, I wanted to recommend it again. Last week, the status of Eve’s relationship — if there even was a relationship — with Chuck & Carol Larabee’s son was up in the air. We finally learned that Eve just had Brandon helping teach her golf because she didn’t want to disappoint her dad because she wasn’t a natural at the game. In the end, though, there sure was a look between Eve and Brandon… Makes me think there COULD be something there in the future.

On tonight’s episode, “Daddy Dearest,” when Mike and Ed take Ryan and his supposedly ailing dad, Victor, on their hunting trip, Victor admits he wasn’t truthful about his reasons for finally coming to see Ryan. Meanwhile, Vanessa scrambles to get more family members to attend Ryan and Kristin’s wedding. Jere Burns (Justified) guest stars.

See if Ryan and Kristin’s wedding goes off without a hitch and find out Victor’s secret tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/3/14

October is here, bringing with it beautiful colors, pumpkin spice lattes, and my favorite part: cooler temperatures. Fall weather is simply the most gorgeous of all seasons in my opinion. Bring on the chilly, crisp nights and the mild days. What it also brings is more new television, so let’s see what we’re recommending tonight.

Megan’s Choice

hawaiifiveo103smallWell, my TV romance has been rekindled with season five of Hawaii Five-0 kicking off last week, and what a delicious episode it was. I know, I know… It is possible that I may be a little biased and slightly deranged when it comes to my love of Alex O’Loughlin and this show, but honestly, I don’t care. The opening scene of Danny and McGarrett doing therapy was fantastic and made my week! The other part that really made the episode for me was the way the writers have seemed to learn how to balance the episode and give all the characters story arcs. Adam proposed to Kono, but we don’t know if she really wants to accept, but we do know she’s very scared of losing him. Having more of Jerry (Jorge Garcia) around as the resident conspiracy theorist is never a bad thing in my opinion because he is amusing and beneficial at the same time. What I’m not looking forward to is not having Catherine around yet—when will she be back? I want to see more of the chivalric side of McGarrett, like that scene from last season when he carried her down the stairs. (Confession: It is very possible that in my deluded head, I was dreaming he was actually carrying me…even though I am far from the size of Catherine and he’d be very winded carrying my chubby ass—nonetheless, a girl can dream.) Regardless of the lack of Catherine and opportunities to daydream, I am very pleased and excited that the show is back, and I’m looking forward to seeing what this season brings.

On tonight’s episode, “Ka Makuakane (Family Man),” Five-0 investigates when the young daughter of a Navy Seal currently on a top-secret mission is kidnapped. Meanwhile, with his brother’s life on the line, Danny must locate the $18.5 million he owes his captors.

To see if Danny can come to the rescue, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Blue Bloods, The Amazing Race, Last Man Standing, Shark Tank, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives, and Z Nation.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/25/14

It’s been another busy week, and I am glad that the weekend is finally here. Unfortunately, I’ve been having some problems with my DVR, which ended up with all my recordings being deleted. Yes, I’m very upset. I’m going to try to get over the sad loss as I await my new PVR. (Okay, I know it’s a first world problem, but it still sucks to the extreme!) In the meantime, while I await my PVR, let’s see what we’re recommending for tonight.

Megan’s Choice #1

hawaiifiveo425smallHawaii Five-0 is back with an all-new episode, and I am super excited for another dose of my favorite sexy crime fighters. Last episode was very stressful, watching McGarrett and Danny trapped in the rubble from the explosion. I was actually worried that Danny wasn’t going to make it. In the end, the two of them were saved, and Danny had a new outlook on life after McGarrett told him to stop looking for the bad in life. We also learned that the body in the grave was actually Wo Fat’s mother because the wrong person was killed causing a CIA cover-up that they don’t want McGarrett messing around with. I think it’s going to get a whole lot more complicated before this gets cleared up.

On tonight’s episode, “Pe’Epe’s Kainaka (Those Among Us),” the team uncovers a possible terrorist cell of radicalized students who are plotting an attack on U.S. soil.

To see if they can stop the attack before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/18/14

Yesterday was a very long day for me, so I’m extra glad today is Friday. I need the weekend. There’s some good stuff on, so check our Kyle’s and my recommendations. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

lastmanstanding418smallLast Man Standing has been a lot of fun this season. I like that Ryan hasn’t been nearly as annoying recently. I also like that Mandy has an actual direction she is heading now in terms of her future. Some of my favorite scenes, though, are with Mike and his almost-clone, Eve. She can really throw out some good one-liners and snappy comebacks exactly like a snarky teenage girl.

On tonight’s episode, “April Come She Will,” when Vanessa’s mooching sister April comes to visit, Mike suspects it’s because she needs money. Sure enough, April explains that she’s decided to have a baby but doesn’t have the funds for a donor egg. While Vanessa and Mike aren’t on board, Mandy comes up with a solution. Meanwhile at Outdoor Man, Mike tries pulling a prank on Chuck Larabee that gives him some new perspective. Jonathan Adams & Christine Moore guest star.

Find out what solution Mandy comes up with tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing at Unforgettable, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, & Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/7/14

It’s the beginning of March Break (spring break) for my kids, and I am trying to come up with fun things to keep them all busy—not an easy task. Maybe some of the new TV on tonight will help kick start my creative thinking. Never know… It could happen. Let’s see what we’re recommending.

Megan’s Choice

hawaiifiveo37smallI don’t know about Hawaii Five-0 kick-starting my creativity, but it definitely brings a smile to my face and amuses me. Last week, the body of a real estate agent was found in the walls of one of his listings, and that was a really creepy thought. Can you imagine if someone was buried behind your drywall? I know… Shivers! It turned out it was the jealous husband of the woman who was going to run away with the real estate agent and leave her husband. The husband, who was a lawyer, also buried his wife in the walls of that house too. On another note, McGarrett was busy protecting Grover from a prying journalist that wanted to expose the reasons behind why Grover left Chicago. Steve saved the day by getting the journalist to drop the story, but he now owns him a favor. Finally, we saw Danny’s mom come to town and announce she’s getting a divorce from his dad because she’s lonely. I could really feel the pain on both sides, but ultimately, I understand why she needs to move on and try to be happy. It was a great episode as usual, and as always, I’m looking forward to more.

On tonight’s episode, “Hoku Welowelo,” Five-0 investigates a triple homicide connected to a downed top-secret Chinese satellite, while Grover takes Danny’s mother on a ride-along.

To see how Danny feels about this ride-along, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Grimm, Blue Bloods, Enlisted, Hannibal, and Say Yes to the Dress.
