If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/26/14

The cold weather’s back here in Kansas. I was really enjoying the (slightly) warmer weather. But tonight, I’ll be curled up under a blanket as I watch all the new TV. Check out our recommendations so you can join me. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

mixology226smallMy pick tonight is the series premiere of Mixology, on ABC. I really enjoyed this pilot when I watched it last summer. It’s a different premise than the norm. From ABC: “One bar. One night. Ten single people.” The show is a mix of characters interacting at Mix, a high-end bar in Manhattan’s meat-packing district. The show stars Adam Campbell (Epic Movie), Adan Canto (The Following), Alexis Carra (Incredible Girl), Craig Frank (8.13), Ginger Gonzaga (Legit), Blake Lee (Parks and Recreation), Vanessa Lengies (Glee), Andrew Santino (Punk’d), Frankie Shaw (Blue Mountain State), and Kate Simses (What’s Your Number) as Liv.

The pilot was cute. Not perfect, but really sweet and funny. I’ve been waiting a long time now for it to come out so I can see it again and so everyone can see it with me. Be sure to tune in to at least check out the first ep!

On tonight’s episode, “Tom & Maya,” newly single Tom is thrown back into the dating world and meets Maya, a beautiful but tough attorney.

See if this cute new comedy is for you tonight on ABC at 9:31/8:31c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Melissa & Joey, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Psych, Criminal Minds, The Exes, Men at Work, Chicago PD, & Wahlburgers.

Our Thoughts on the ABC 2013-14 Pilot Trailers

Megan, Kyle, & I have gotten a chance to watch the trailers & clips for all the new network shows, and we’re here to give you our opinions on what might be worth watching—based on the trailers alone. Our opinions may (most likely WILL) change after we get a chance to view the pilots, but for now, this is what we’re thinking. Check out our thoughts on the ABC trailers now, and then come back over the next few days to check out our responses to the other networks.

Let’s start off with the dramas…in alphabetical order:
 

Betrayal

  • Jenny: Honestly, this is probably one I’ll skip even watching the pilot, simply because I know my tastes. This is a drama through and through—much like Nashville and Scandal have turned out to be. I don’t mind a little drama for drama’s sake if it’s in a cop, law, or medical show, but when it’s all about drama, no thanks. – Most Likely 1 and Done.
  • Megan: This trailer left me wanting more. I’m sure there are going to be a lot of people who say that the infidelity angle has been done too many times. I am not one of those people. This a mom who feels alone in her marriage and a man that sparks something in her that she thought was gone. It’s a difficult place to be, and I’m not sure what I would do, but I do know that watching this woman’s life change around her is going to make for good TV. – Curious.
  • Kyle: This looks more like something that belongs on Lifetime. Seems to be very thin on plot and heavy on the sex scenes. I would have thought this was another Shonda Rhimes show based on that trailer. – Most Likely 1 and Done.
