If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/26/12

You know last Friday, I mentioned that it was getting colder? NOTHING like it is now. What a difference a week makes. Things here have been up and down all week, so I’m looking forward to having some downtime to just relax and chill out while I watch some great TV—and we’re prepared to tell you what we think you should watch, so check out our recommendations for the night. 😉

I was going to do Nikita again (because how freakin adorable was Michael when he shouted that he was going back to get her engagement ring, and then the proposal and Nikita saying what she did? LOVED it. 😀 ), but then I realized the backdoor pilot of the new Mockingbird Lane is airing tonight. I LOVE this idea. The Munsters brought to life again by the mind behind the brilliant show Pushing Daisies and starring Jerry O’Connell (who I love)? Sign me up. Mockingbird Lane is a new reimagined version of the classic 1960s comedy The Munsters, now as a visually spectacular one-hour drama with a darker edge and tone. The cast includes Jerry O’Connell (The Defenders) as Herman Munster, Portia de Rossi (Arrested Development) as his wife Lily, Eddie Izzard (United States of Tara, The Riches) as Grandpa, Mason Cook (Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D) as Eddie, and Charity Wakefield (The Raven) as Marilyn.

I have no idea when the show will truly premiere, but I hope the pilot lives up to my expectations. Brian Fuller was a genius with Pushing Daisies, so I am truly hoping he brings that magic to this new show.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” sweet little Eddie Munster is a normal kid about to enter the horrors of puberty. Truth is, he’s about to discover that for him becoming a teenager means growing hair in truly unexpected places—as in all over his body—every time the moon is full! Eddie’s got it pretty good, though. His loving, supportive, run-of-the-mill family includes his mom Lily, the daughter of Dracula; his dad Herman, who brings new meaning to “Frankenstein”; and Grandpa, who would give Dracula a run for his money if he weren’t actually Dracula! Of course, then there’s creepy cousin Marilyn, who’s really the odd one because she’s so completely normal.

Don’t miss it tonight on NBC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Mockingbird Lane @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Nikita, Fringe, CSI: NY, Haven, Grimm, Blue Bloods, & Hunted.
