If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/16/14

Can I just say that I LOVE shopping with other people’s money? *laugh* A group I belong to on Facebook has adopted a troop and a platoon of Army soldiers overseas, and I’ve been collecting donations and letters from them to buy things to put in a care package for each group of soldiers. It’s been a lot of fun. 🙂 But moving on to TV, tonight’s another great night, so we have some recommendations for what you should watch. Check them out!

americasgottalent2013smallMy pick tonight is the last performances episode this season of America’s Got Talent. Last week, the group was narrowed down to the final 6, and while it’s not my perfect six, I’m a big fan of several of the remaining acts. My top pick is Mat Franco, the cutey patootie magician. He’s really amazing, and his personality just shines every time he gets on stage (or off stage, as the case may be, since most of—if not all of—his acts take place down at the judges’ table and in the audience. I love watching him every time and could watch him all day. I also love AcroArmy. They’re crazy good at what they do, which is kind of dance combined with gymnastics combined with cheerleading. I love watching them because they have that danger element that doesn’t make me cringe and look away. Sons of Serendip are an amazing musical group, and I’m glad they made it through. I’m not a huge fan of Miguel Dakota, Quintavious Johnson, and Emily West, the remaining three acts, all of whom are singers. They’re all good, yeah, but…something about all of them puts me off. I’d much rather have had the other magic acts & musicians Emil & Dariel. So my fingers are crossed for Mat, and if not him, then AcroArmy or Sons of Serendip!

On tonight’s episode, “Finale Performance,” the Final 6 acts compete one last time live at the legendary Radio City Music Hall for the chance to win one million dollars and be named the most talented act in America.

Check out the last performances of the season on tonight’s two-hour new episode on NBC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Dancing with the Stars, 19 Kids & Counting, The Jennie Garth Project, Married at First Sight, MasterChef Canada, & Chopped.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/5/13

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous here—even when it’s raining. I love fall. The cool weather is just fantastic. It makes cuddling up and watching TV a lot of fun. Check out our recommendations for tonight!

thegoldbergs115smallLast week’s The Goldbergs was cute, as every episode has been. I really love this show. Barry dressed as the Hulk to go to a Halloween party so he could ask out his crush—a girl who had modeled in a magazine… Needless to say, it didn’t go well. It wouldn’t have gone well even if his overbearing but loving mother hadn’t shown up, posing as a ghost under a sheet, to “sell” her son to the girl. When Barry realized it was her and that she was calling him delicious over and over, he freaked and ran out of the party. His sister, who’d been looking forward to watching him get laughed at, felt bad when it wasn’t nearly as fun as she’d expected. She went after him and they made a pact that they would stick together against their mother. Meanwhile, Adam dressed up as a Rubik’s cube, which was adorable, but when he chose to go out with his new “friends,” he expected to be trick-or-treating. Instead, they went egging, including Adam’s own house, which is when he got caught. He ended up going out as a Ghostbuster with his grandpa. It was cute. 🙂

On tonight’s episode, “Call Me When You Get There,” when Barry receives his first driver’s license, Beverly lays out the rules about using the car, including the most important: “Call me when you get there!” After Barry disobeys his mother and gets in trouble, he takes Erica’s advice to not tell the truth about his whereabouts—no matter where he is—the next time he calls home… but it backfires.

Find out how much trouble Barry’s in tonight on ABC at 9:01/8:01c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., NCIS, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Little People, Big World, NCIS: LA, Trophy Wife, Chopped, & Person of Interest.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/1/13

Welcome to October! Let’s hope this month is filled with beautiful fall days and lots of mini chocolate bars. I’m also looking forward to even more series and season premieres this month as well. Let’s see what’s on tonight to start this month off right.

ncisla101smallNCIS: LA is by far my favorite of the franchise, and what a season premiere it had last week. I was on the edge of my seat watching to see if Deeks was going to be okay and if Sam could save his wife. In the end, everyone except the bad guys lived, but whether they’re okay is another story. Deeks has lasting effects from the torture, and I’m not sure he’ll ever be the same. I was really sad to see him be so distant from Kensi, but I hope it all works out soon.

On tonight’s episode, “Impact,” Hetty calls in psychologist Nate Getz (guest star Peter Cambor) to help Sam and Deeks deal with the effects of their traumatic experience.

To see if the boys can get back on track, tune in to CBS at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching The Voice, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NCIS, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., New Girl, The Goldbergs, The Mindy Project, Trophy Wife, Lucky 7, and Person of Interest.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/17/13

Over the weekend, my DVR decided to lose its mind and crash—I lost everything! Good news is that the fall season hadn’t started yet, so I didn’t lose any of the new shows. *phew* Very good news is that tonight, we are being spoiled by a few new shows, as well as a few season premieres. I am stoked. How about you? Let’s see what we’re all watching!

newgirl917smallTonight, New Girl returns to help us giggle the night away, and I couldn’t be happier. I am anxious to see how Nick and Jess are doing in the new season, because when we left them last season, they had decided to continue to date, even though they didn’t know where it was going. Cece decided not to get married and told Schimdt he was the one for her. It was a romantic episode, but still quite funny. I am looking forward to a whole new season full of quirky humor and amusing relationship issues.

On tonight’s premiere, “All In,” when Nick and Jess head to a Mexican beach town, Nick runs into trouble with the authorities; Schmidt must choose between Elizabeth and Cece; Winston becomes obsessed with finishing a puzzle.

To see where our favorites are this season, tune in to FOX at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dads, Capture, The Million Second Quiz, and The Mindy Project.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 5/14/13

I’m not sure what kind of drugs Mother Nature is on, but whatever it is, she needs to stop! This weather is ridiculous up here in Canada—one minute, it’s warm, the next we have a frost warning. Hopefully the weather gets sorted out before next week when soccer season starts for my daughter. While I worry about whether or not the frost tonight is going to hurt my plants, let’s see what’s on TV that you should be watching.

sytycd2013smallGrab your tutus and tap shoes. It’s that time of year again… So You Think You Can Dance returns tonight! It’s no secret that I love this show or that I am full of opinions about contestants, judges, and choreographers alike. I’m looking forward to a brand new season and hopefully some awesome new routines that take our breath away. Of course, there’s also the fact that we get to watch all the auditions first, which is always so amusing. Nothing like watching some crazy person in spandex take the stage with the strong belief they can dance…but they can’t. (Especially when Adam Shankman is guest judging, because he is the WORST at controlling his facial expressions, and it makes me laugh every time.)

On tonight’s season premiere, “Audition City 1,” dancers perform for the judges.

To see who soars and who has two left feet, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching NCIS: LA, NCIS, The Voice, Body of Proof, New Girl, The Mindy Project, Grimm, and Chopped.
