If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/19/11

It’s slim pickings this week in television as we count down the final days until Christmas (Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, as well 🙂 ). That said, we’re TV addicts, so of course we’ll find something for you to watch. It’s like our cosmic duty or something! Let’s see what we are guiding your remote to tonight.

Megan’s Choice #1

I don’t usually go the TLC route, but Next Great Baker is an incredibly amusing show. Not only do you have the very funny Buddy, the Cake Boss himself, but you get a bunch of bakers trying to impress him. He’s a hard person to impress, considering his cakes are always amazing. So far, one of my favorite contestants is Heather, because she’s just too sweet for words.

On tonight’s episode, “Bakers on Ice,” the bakers split up into teams to make a holiday-themed cake for the Valastro Christmas party.

To see whose cake earns a gold star, tune in to TLC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Next Great Baker @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 12/12/11

It’s been a VERY trying few days. I basically lost my job, so things here are really tense while we figure out what we’re going to do. TV is one of my only bright spots, and I can only hope that doesn’t disappear! There’s not a lot on this week, but what we have is yours, so read on!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I absolutely adore Rizzoli & Isles. There are some great partnerships on TV: Booth and Bones, Castle and Beckett, Franklin and Bash, Shawn and Gus. Jane Rizzoli & Maura Isles have that same chemistry. They snipe at each other (well, mostly, it’s Jane that does the sniping… lol), but they are the best of friends. Even when something comes between them—like last week, when Maura had to keep from Jane the fact that her brother Tommy was the main suspect in a bank robbery turned murder—they still make their way back to their friendship.

On tonight’s episode, “Seventeen Ain’t So Sweet,” Jane attends her high school reunion and brings Maura along for the ride, but the fun is cut short when one of her old classmates turns up dead on the football field. Jane must focus on the past when she realizes everyone in her class is a potential suspect. Meanwhile, Korsak gets a visit from ex-wife Melody Patterson (guest star Lolita Davidovich), who hopes he’ll invest in her new business. Chris Vance (All Saints, Prison Break, Transporter) returns as Sgt. Major Charles “Casey” Jones, an old flame of Jane’s, and Matthew Del Negro (United States of Tara) guest-stars as Angela’s car mechanic, Giovanni, who once had eyes for Maura.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 11/21/11

It’s a short week for those of us in the US. The kids most likely all have 2-day school weeks, worker bees get at least Thursday & Friday off…Happy Thanksgiving! lol If you don’t live here or celebrate Thanksgiving, well…lament the lack of new TV later this week along with us, but for now, enjoy what the television has to offer tonight, because there’s lots of it!

Jenny’s Choice #1

I have seen tonight’s Castle, and I can tell you this much: You don’t want to miss it. Beckett faces off with her worst fear—a sniper—and has to deal with the post-traumatic stress that she has been denying she has been suffering from since her shooting. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you are a fan, this is one you will really enjoy. Stana Katic and Jon Huertas (Espisito) absolutely knock it out of the park. As Beckett is trying her best to pretend like she’s okay, Espisito is the only one able to get through to her. It’s a gripping performance from them both. There’s only a few good moments for Caskett fans, but tonight’s episode sets up the real possibility of a future relationship between the two. All in all, it’s one of my favorite episodes of the series.

On tonight’s episode, “Kill Shot,” New York City is under fire by a sniper with no clear reason for killing, other than to instill fright; with time running out, the team struggles to locate the sniper, and it becomes difficult, as Beckett suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Don’t miss an exciting, important new episode tonight on ABC at 10/9c. (Be sure and check your local listings, because football is preempting my ABC shows. Castle is airing on The CW, instead!) Learn where to find episodes online of Castle @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/17/11

Unfortunately, it’s Monday, which means back to work for a lot of people. Thankfully, there is a ton of great new TV on tonight to console you. Monday is one of my favorite nights of the week simply because of that. You? Let us know below after you see what we recommend!

Jenny’s Choice #1

My first pick tonight should come as no surprise, because Castle has been fan-freakin-tabulous this season. The chemistry between Castle and Beckett is ramping up, and the rest of the cast has been really gelling well, too. The new captain is…a hard ass, to put it semi-politely. lol She still hates Castle, even with the results they are bringing, but I have to wonder if he is beginning to win her over. It’s going to be fun to see how he charms her over to his side—cause you know he will…he’s Richard Castle, after all! Tonight, Beckett is going to get jealous about Castle’s attraction to one of the people involved in their investigation. Will this get her one step closer to admitting to him that she remembers everything from the day she was shot, and that she loves him, too? Only time will tell!

On tonight’s episode, “Eye of the Beholder,” Castle & Beckett work a murder case around the theft of a valuable sculpture. Kristin Lehman (The Killing) guest stars as Serena Kaye, a smart, sexy insurance investigator, who joins Castle & Beckett in the investigation, but she also has her eyes set on Castle, all the while hiding a very important secret from the team. Jessica Tuck (True Blood) also guest stars as Joy McHugh, a wealthy museum benefactor who becomes a suspect in the murder investigation.

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

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/10/11

Welcome to the first work day of the new week. Did you have a good weekend? Mine was long, and I’m actually looking forward to today, because Monday night TV is always great. What do we think you should be watching? Read on to find out!

Jenny’s Choice #1

Castle has been amping up the flirting since the premiere, getting back to some of the best of the chemistry between Castle & Beckett, while still making the case of the week fun. You know it’s got to all come crashing down soon, though, when they learn of each other’s deceit. Tonight’s episode promises to be a hard one for the team, so hopefully we’ll get some good scenes between all the cast, not just Castle and Beckett.

On tonight’s episode, “Kick the Ballistics,” while investigating the mysterious shooting death of a young woman, Castle and Beckett face a cop’s worst nightmare when they discover that the gun used in the killing is Det. Ryan’s old service weapon—the one that was stolen by the serial killer, 3XK. Now, with the clock ticking, the team must work to solve the murder, track down 3XK and retrieve Ryan’s gun before the killer strikes again.

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