If We Controlled Your Remote… 1/24/13

The problem with going on vacation for a week is that you need a second vacation once you return just to catch up on all the TV you missed. Not to mention that it’s also tough going from a week of 70+ degree weather back to highs of just 20 degrees! There’s a lot of great new TV I’ll be adding to my TiVo backlog tonight, so here’s our suggestions on what you should check out.

Kyle’s Choice

lastresort124smallI’m anxiously awaiting tonight’s series finale of Last Resort. Last week, the mutiny was looming, and the power struggle continued between COB and Chaplin, with each of them making offers to the XO to join his camp. Meanwhile, in DC, the Speaker of the House was giving a speech when an aide approached him. Buell stopped himself mid-speech, confessed to the planned coup of the President, and shot himself on live TV. While leaving the House, Kylie was grabbed by some men and brought to a limo, where her father told her he got her name removed from the list of conspirators and revealed that he was backing the President. Back on the island, the mutiny started, and it appeared that Grace had chosen to side with COB. However, when Chaplin arrived at the Colorado, Anders was holding her at gunpoint.

So what will happen tonight? How will the mutiny end, and who will control the Colorado? What will happen to the failed coup conspirators in Washington? Will the President ever pay for his crimes? Will the crew of the Colorado be able to return home, or are they stuck on this island? I wonder how much will they will really be able to resolve with just this one re-written final hour, but I hope we get a satisfying conclusion.

On tonight’s episode, “Controlled Flight into Terrain,” Chaplin and Kendal must prevent the Colorado from being captured in the series finale.

See if fans get the ending the hope for tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Last Resort @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/recording Grey’s Anatomy, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, The Office, 1600 Penn, Glee, Archer, Sweet Genius, King of the Nerds, and Suits.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/8/12

Two good things about the election being over: no more of those awful political ads, and loads of new TV episodes! Thursdays appear to be back to their old DVR-overwhelming ways, so we’ve got some suggestions to help you decide what to watch tonight.

Last Resort is getting really good! Last week was easily my favorite episode of the series so far. Secretary of Defense Curry arrived on the island, along with Grace’s father, to negotiate with Chaplin and Kendal. Meanwhile, part of the sonar ray line surrounding the island was down, leaving the sub vulnerable. So Grace took command of the Colorado and a small team to go and replace the dead battery. While underwater, the government took advantage of the compromised defense to try to find and attack the Colorado, but Grace proved to be an effective leader and managed to out maneuver the would-be attackers. Also, back in the US, we learned that Christine knows she is being played to try to turn on her husband and is using this to her advantage.

While I found Prosser’s line of “Ten Hut, Officer On Deck!” so cheesy, it was great to see this character finally have some respect for Grace! Last Resort just keeps getting better each week as the drama, intrigue, and action keep getting amped up! I hope folks will tune in and give the show a chance!

On tonight’s episode, “Another Fine Navy Day,” mysterious assailants attack the crew, putting Chaplin and Kendal on the defensive.

See who the attackers are tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Last Resort @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Glee, The League, Sweet Genius, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/25/12

I am in disbelief that October is almost over. Where did the month go? Despite the fact that the time seems to be slipping away, I am welcoming the cooler temperatures and, even more so, all the new television! Let’s take a look at what we’re recommending (aka ordering 😉 ), you to watch tonight.

Megan’s Choice

The Big Bang Theory is one of those comedies that never fails to deliver me side-splitting laughs—I admit to tears often streaming down my face. Last week’s episode was particularly funny, especially when Howard found his dentist sneaking out of his mom’s house. Another great moment was the discussion between Raj, Stuart, and Howard—awkward for Raj to introduce his new roommate to Howard. The jealousy tension was really well-played. I’m looking forward to seeing more moments with Howard and Bernadette, as well as hoping they play more on the Raj/Stuart friendship.

On tonight’s episode, “The Holographic Excitation,” the gang heads to Stuart’s comic book store to celebrate Halloween; Leonard uses science to seduce Penny.

To see if science can be the new panty remover, tune into CBS at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Big Bang Theory @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Grey’s Anatomy, Elementary, Last Resort, Person of Interest, Scandal, The Vampire Diaries, Beauty and the Beast, and Sweet Genius.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/27/12

Are your DVRs on fire yet?! Have they banded together to form a union and demand overtime pay and benefits?! My TiVo has been recording non-stop with the insane number of new and returning shows we’ve had starting (back) up this week! And tonight’s no different, with wall-to-wall premieres on CBS and ABC, including two great new series, Elementary and Last Resort. Read on to find out what we suggest you check out tonight.

Kyle’s Choice

Tonight, ABC adds the new series Last Resort to its lineup. This pilot was one of my favorites of this fall’s new dramas. The opener is a suspenseful, action-packed hour, which sets up some interesting mysteries, political intrigue and drama. The series is also loaded with a lot of great, familiar actors, such as Andre Braugher, Scott Speedman (Felicity), Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse, Being Human), Autumn Reeser (No Ordinary Family, The OC), Jessy Schram (Falling Skies), and Robert Patrick. My only concern is that its 8pm Thursday timeslot has historically been unsuccessful for ABC ever since Ugly Betty ended—shows like Charlie’s Angels, My Generation, and Flash Forward all died in this slot. I hope everyone checks this out tonight and enjoys it as much as I did!

In tonight’s episode, “Captain,” mysterious orders to fire nuclear weapons at a foreign country are received in the opener of this series following the crew of a U.S. submarine, who seek refuge on an exotic island after being attacked under suspicious circumstances.

Don’t miss all the drama tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Last Resort @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching The Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Grey’s Anatomy, Saturday Night Live, Up All Night, The Office, Parks and Recreation, The X Factor, Glee, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

Link to 666 Park Avenue on ABC.com.

Jenny’s Thoughts: It looks good, scary, but may be way too complicated and “Lost-y” for me. – Most likely 1 and done
Megan’s Thoughts: This was an intense trailer, and I’m loving the dark edge to it. I enjoyed seeing Terry O’Quinn in this, and I’m glad he has a regular series. He plays evil well. – Excited
Kyle’s Thoughts: I think the “made by” Gossip Girl/PLL folks said a lot – looks like a CW show but with an older cast. A cross between The Shining, American Horror Story, and The Firm. – Most likely 1 and done.
