If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/17/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Kyle’s Choice

tbbt1217smallLast week on The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon had an earworm stuck in his head and annoyed Penny and Leonard as he constantly tried to figure out what song it was. Meanwhile, Raj and Howard discovered their band already had a fan after just one performance. They stalked and tracked him down but quickly changed their minds about meeting him after witnessing him picking his nose at the coffee shop. And finally, Amy decided to move on, begrudgingly calling Dave – Sheldon’s number one superfan – for a second date, this time dinner at her home (with the possibility of more). Sheldon unknowingly interrupted the date, professing his love and kissing Amy. However, Amy’s date didn’t seem to mind. He was thrilled to finally meet Sheldon and lived the moment vicariously through her.

I was really happy to see Sheldon and Amy get back together last week. They make a really great couple. (Though I have really enjoyed guest star Stephen Merchant, and I hope they find a way to bring Dave back in a future episode.) If the gossip is true, tonight’s episode should be a big one for Amy and Sheldon, with the couple taking a gigantic leap forward. So I’m anxious to see how their relationship progresses from here.

On tonight’s episode, “The Opening Night Excitation,” Prof. Proton visits Sheldon in a dream and gives him Obi-Wan Kenobi-like advice about whether to go see the new Star Wars film or spend the time with newly reunited girlfriend Amy on her birthday. Meanwhile, Leonard, Howard, and Raj try to decide who will get their extra ticket to the movie premiere.

To see what step Shamy takes and who goes to the movie with the guys, tune in to CBS at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Life in Pieces.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/13/15

Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

sytycd2015smallI’ve been really enjoying this season of So You Think You Can Dance. The split of “street” dancers versus “stage” has been interesting. I think there’s both positive and negative things about the way they’re doing that. On the one hand, it was great seeing the dancers stretch themselves in the genres they weren’t at all familiar with (such as an animator doing contemporary or a contemporary dancer doing hip hop). We found some real stars that way. But on the other hand, I can’t wait to see if they take the street dancers more in-depth in that area, for example. So it’ll be interesting, now that they’ve chosen their top 10 street & stage dancers! My favorites so far are JaJa for street and Jim for stage, but honestly, it’s a great top 20, and I can’t wait to see how the season plays out!

On tonight’s episode, “Top 20 Perform,” it’s the first live show of the season! The Top 20 have been chosen, and now it’s time for the dancers to show America they have what it takes to win.

To watch the Top 20 give it everything they’ve got and to see a special guest performer take the stage, tune in to FOX at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing American Ninja Warrior, Cake Wars, Penn & Teller: Fool Us, Major Crimes, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Murder in the First, Southern Fried Road Trip, & Top 5 Restaurants.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/1/14

Tomorrow, my kids head back to school, and I’m super excited about it because it also means that the new TV season is just around the corner. Don’t get me wrong… Summer has brought us lots of entertainment, but I am beyond ready for the new season of my favorite shows. Aren’t you? Let’s see what we’re recommending tonight to keep us entertained while I eagerly await the new fall season.

Megan’s Choice

runningwildsmallI have been really loving this season of Running Wild with Bear Grylls because the celebrities are super amusing in the wild. My favorite episode was actually the one with Channing Tatum, and it wasn’t because of his incredible sexy good looks, but because of his amusing attitude through the whole episode. The scene eating the snake was disgusting but very funny, and I have a newfound respect for Channing. Perhaps that’s what is the most intriguing about this show, the ability to see celebrities in a new light.

On tonight’s episode, “Tamron Hall,” world-renowned survivalist Bear Grylls spends two days in the remote Utah desert with Tamron Hall (The Today Show), getting to know the depths of her personal tragedies and triumphs of her life, while challenging her along the way. Hall makes small talk with an unlikely friend in the wild and later struggles when she finds him on her dinner plate.

To see how Tamron does, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef, Hotel Hell, American Ninja Warrior, Teen Wolf, The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, and Houdini.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/28/14

What a great weekend it was in my house, despite some really crazy thunderstorms that disrupted my sleep last night. I’m looking forward to seeing where this week takes me both on and off the television screen. For TV, check out what Jenny & I are recommending.

Megan’s Choice

runningwildsmallI am really intrigued by all the adventure shows on TV these days, but I have been looking forward to Running Wild With Bear Grylls since I first saw the previews. In this series, Bear will be taking celebrities into the wildest and most remote locations, one at a time, for a 48-hour adventure. The celebrities include the likes of Zac Efron, Channing Tatum, and Ben Stiller. Each of the six celebs will be enduring crazy situations and get to push themselves to new limits. I’m curious to see if some of these Hollywood stars can handle the insanity that is Bear.

On tonight’s episode, “Zac Efron,” world-renowned survivalist Bear Grylls leads Zac Efron on a non-stop extreme survival journey into the Northeast Appalachian mountain range wilderness. With Bear’s help, Zac challenges himself physically as well as mentally on an awe-inspiring journey he could never have imagined.

To see if Zac can handle this, tune in to NBC at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching MasterChef, Hotel Hell, American Ninja Warrior, The Bachelorette, and Teen Wolf.
