If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/17/13

Happy Wednesday, everybody. How’s your week going so far? Good? Good! Mine’s going okay, too. 😀 It’s a pretty slow night for mid-week TV, but we’ve all got opinions on what you should be watching, so let’s get to it. 😉

Jenny’s Choice

psych417smallLast week’s Psych was great. Lassie and the group went to Vegas for his and Marlowe’s bachelor & bachelorette parties—at which we met his “best friend” who turned out not to truly be his best friend and a big douche, and where we got to see the chief drunk off her…behind. Then Marlowe got cold feet and ended up kidnapped by the bad guy, and when he & Lassie made arrangements to exchange the bad guy’s accountant that Lassie had in custody for Marlowe, neither side brought the right person, so they came to an agreement, which was just too funny. Then the actual wedding got interrupted, Marlowe wore a red dress, and we learned she had some kick-ass moves… In the end, they did end up tying the knot. It was cute. BUT… At the reception, Jules figured out that Shawn wasn’t really psychic, that he’d been lying the entire time, not just to the chief & the rest of the department, but to her, as well. Crazy!

Is this the end to Shawn & Juliet? I don’t see how she can tell Lassie or Chief Vick, because that would really signal the end of the series… But can she forgive him for lying in the first place and not telling her the truth when they finally got together and even after they moved in together? Eek. 🙁

On tonight’s episode, “Right Turn or Left for Dead,” Shawn solves a case involving a mysterious Swedish woman and imagines how the same case would have been solved had he done one thing differently. Kurt Fuller, Lauriane Gillieron, & Rose Abdoo guest star.

To see how Shawn & Juliet are doing after last week’s major revelation, tune in to USA Network at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Psych @ TV.com.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing How to Live with Your Parents (the Rest of Your Life) & The Americans.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/20/12

Yay for finally feeling better after the mother of all colds. The whole family is healthy (*knocks on wood*), jobs are going well, and I get to meet an online friend in real life at the end of the month. All that AND there’s great new TV tonight? Fantastic! So read on to see what great stuff we think you should be watching tonight. 🙂

Jenny’s Choice

There was a lot on tonight, including some great comedies, but my pick had to go to Justified. This show has been ramping up this season. Winona is pregnant and decided she couldn’t handle being with Rayland. (I’ve never liked her, but this kind of pissed me off. Whatever.) The newest big bad, Neal McDonough’s Robert Quarles, is an evil son of a bitch (although he’s much more outwardly scary, unlike Margo Martindale’s Mags Bennett last season – that woman was quiet but deadly and would scare the crap out of me if I ever met her in real life). And you just can’t help but love Boyd Crowder. He’s so not a nice guy, but you just have to feel for him…like when he was arrested for something he hadn’t done. lol And when it looked like Ava was turning over the drug-addicted hooker, I was surprised, because I thought for sure she actually had a heart underneath all the crap…and then I was proven right when she shot Delroy instead of turning Ellie May over to him. And then, of course, we dealt with Raylan being set up for Gary’s murder (it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy, frankly, but whatever. LOL). So… yeah, I’ve been enjoying this show a lot this season.

On tonight’s episode, “Guy Walks Into a Bar,” Raylan struggles to keep Dickie Bennett in prison while contending with an increasingly violent and unpredictable Quarles. Boyd’s Harlan election comes to a head.

Check it out tonight on FX at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Justified @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing Last Man Standing, NCIS, NCIS: LA, Raising Hope, Cougar Town, 19 Kids & Counting, Breaking In, Chopped, Top Shot, & Unforgettable.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/13/12

As I write this post up, I have the mother of all headache, post-nasal drip, and I swear, if I blow my nose any more, I’m going to end up with nothing left in my head. Being sick SUCKS, just FYI. On a brighter note, there’s tons of great TV on tonight, so let’s get to it!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I debated what to put first tonight, because I love both of my picks so much, but I gotta go with Cougar Town. This show is killer comedy. The cast is so deliciously funny together, and it just feels completely natural. They really do seem like they are the best of friends (especially Jules, Ellie, and Laurie), and the relationships between Travis and his parents are so real, it’s scary. I love that Jules and Grayson are engaged and planning their wedding (as much as she’ll allow him to help her!). This is really one of my favorite comedies on TV. I’ve already seen this week’s episode, and it is fantastic. As hard as Bobby tries to impress Travis’s photography teacher, absolutely nothing goes as planned. But the best part are the guest stars… Not only is Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke on again this week (and of course, Bob Clendenin as neighbor Tom), but so are Sam Lloyd & Ken Jenkins, both of whom have guest-starred before, and there might be a few more surprises along the way. All in all, it’s a great half hour and totally worth watching.

On tonight’s episode, “A One Story Town,” Jules and the gang decide Bobby needs some help romancing Angie, so they launch “operation kiss-the-girl.” Meanwhile, other former Scrubs cast turn up, as Ted (Sam Lloyd) and the Peons pass through on their way to audition at Disney World.

Don’t miss it tonight on ABC at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of Cougar Town @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 3/6/12

Tonight is exciting for fans of FOX Tuesday comedies, because there are some great episodes, including a season premiere & a spring premiere, but there’s also some great dramas on, so check out our picks for what you should be watching!

Jenny’s Choice #1

How much do I love that Jimmy & Sabrina are now a couple on Raising Hope? I am still a little worried that it will screw up the dynamics of the show, but I have to trust Greg Garcia & the writers to do right by the viewers. Last week was fun, what with the two of them trying to figure out whether to truly be themselves or to hide the quirks and flaws…and farts. *laugh* It’s something almost every new couple has to deal with. Seeing Sabrina’s quirk about sleeping with pantyhose on her head because she was afraid of spiders crawling into her head when she slept was great. And then that fear landed Jimmy in the hospital? Fantastic. I can’t wait to see where they take this.

On tonight’s episode, “Single White Female Role Model,” Sabrina is arrested after participating in an Occupy Natesville protest and is sentenced to two weeks in prison. One of the prison attendant’s (special guest star Katy Perry!) claims to be a friend from her past and will stop at nothing to make Sabrina’s stay in the slammer as dreadful as possible until she remembers their childhood friendship. Meanwhile, the mayor of Natesville grants Virginia three wishes after she helps her avoid a public scandal, but when Jimmy turns down the mayor’s advances, Sabrina’s chances of being exonerated are put at risk.

Laugh along with the crazy tonight on FOX in its new time slot at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Raising Hope @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 2/28/12

I love Tuesdays, because there’s so many great things on. And this week is no exception. Settle in and pick up your remote, and if you need help deciding what to watch, see what we think you should pick!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I’ll be honest… I haven’t seen last week’s NCIS: LA. Like the 2-part Castle episode, I put off watching part 1 of this show until part 2 airs tonight. I do know that Kensi Blye isn’t going anywhere, so I have faith that the writers will make the episodes great, as they always are. I’m hoping that through last week and this week, we find out more info on her father, and if Kensi and Deeks grow closer…well, that’s a damn good bonus. 😉

On tonight’s episode, “Blue, K., Part 2,” the NCIS: LA team continues to search for new evidence to prove Kensi Blye’s innocence after a private meeting involving her deceased father’s sniper unit turns deadly.

Check it out tonight on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of NCIS: LA @ Clicker.
