If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/18/11

Did everyone’s week get off to a good start? Mine did, but how could it not with the great television we have on Mondays? Tuesdays are a creature of another sort. It’s a night of pure insanity for my DVR. What about you? What can’t you miss tonight? Read on for suggestions and opinions.

Megan’s Choice #1

Tonight is the season premiere of Flashpoint, and it’s a must see episode. I’m super lucky, because I’ve already seen a bunch of the new season, and they’ve outdone themselves. I love the character development on the show, and for a procedural, it spends lots on time on the relationships our characters have. I adore Jules with Sam, and I hope that they find a way for them to be together without breaking up the team. The show has switched from CBS to ION, so to find the right channel for you, look on their website.

On tonight’s season premiere, “Grounded,” as Parker negotiates with desperate hijackers, the rest of Team One prepares for the worst with a tactical response that will try not to get anyone killed.

To welcome your favorite swat team back, tune in to ION at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Flashpoint @ Clicker.

Pilot Watch 2011 – ABC

Megan, Kyle, and I were all able to check out most of the ABC pilots for the 2011 season. We have each rated them as Watch, Maybe, or Skip. It’s actually surprising how much we agree on! Check back soon for our thoughts on the FOX pilots, as well, but for now, read on to find out what we have to say about the new comedies and dramas from ABC.

Apartment 23

Jenny: I have to admit, I went into this one with the idea in my head that five minutes in, I’d shut it off because I hated it. I just knew it wasn’t my thing. But I think I laughed more during it than I’ve laughed at anything all summer. It’s not just that it’s funny—although it really is hysterical—but it’s that it is SO WRONG. In the same vein as Raising Hope, and sometimes even Modern Family, the jokes in Apartment 23 are so politically incorrect or stereotyping that you have to shake your head, all while laughing your behind off. Unlike Kyle, I liked Krysten Ritter in this. I think she was just the perfect foil for Dreama Walker’s June. This one definitely earns a spot on my schedule. – Watch

Kyle: I found this show quite funny—especially James Van Der Beek playing a parody of himself. There were also some great secondary characters, such as the neighbor. The only issue I have is that I’m not a fan of Krysten Ritter (I didn’t like her on Breaking Bad either). That said, I will definitely be watching more of this show. – Watch

Megan: I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy this at all, and I surprised myself by laughing during most of it. James Van Der Beek was awesome as himself, which is the new key to his future success. This comedy brings offside humour and a genuinely likeable cast. I’ll be watching for at least a few weeks while it finds its niche. – Watch
