If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/26/18

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

I’m excited because tonight is the season premiere of The Great Food Truck Race, and this season, they’re heading into the Wild West – or rather, the Southwest. Last season they headed south and spent time in Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, & more. This season, they’ll start off in Los Angeles before traveling to Las Vegas, Phoenix, Yuma, Coachella Valley (where, yes, Coachella takes place), and more. Tyler Florence once again hosts as seven teams battle it out to win the $50,000 prize.

On tonight’s episode, “Wagons Ho!” Tyler kicks off the race at a cattle ranch outside of Los Angeles, where he welcomes the seven teams with their first challenge. Each team must hand-squeeze a pitcher of orange juice in order to receive their seed money and keys to their truck. The trucks then head out to shop and prep for their first day selling on the busy streets of Los Angeles. The team that sells the least is sent home, while the other six head to the next city.

Find out who advances and who goes home tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Match Game, Trial & Error, Beat Bobby Flay, & Take Two.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/17/14

We’re back! (Well, Kyle & I are, anyway… Megan will be back tomorrow!) It was a good sort of mini-vacation from the Remote posts. As you could see by the lack of posts that we meant to do, we were enjoying our time off. Sorry about that! Hope you found all the great new episodes regardless! On that note, there are two premieres that Kyle & I want to talk about for tonight, so read on to see what we’re recommending.

rvgkidssmallMy pick tonight is the season premiere of Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off on Food Network. I adored this show last season. Eight kids are split into two teams and mentored by either Rachael Ray or Guy Fieri. Just like MasterChef Junior, the talent these kids bring is beyond amazing. Last season, one of my favorites, an adorable little boy named Brandon, won, but all the kids were great. This season, I can’t wait to meet the little chefs, the youngest of which is only 9 years old! No matter who wins, though, it’ll be a fun season of different challenges, great guest judges, and some amazing talents as these kids push their kitchen chops past their limits. And since no one goes home — scores are kept in a running tally through the competition and the highest total wins at the end of the season — it’ll be easy to get to know the kids and pick your favorite.

On tonight’s episode, “Street Food Showdown,” eight young chefs arrive at the kitchen and are presented with their first Mini Challenge, in which they must make a family-favorite meal; in the Main Challenge, they must create a unique street food dish and present it in their Camera Challenge.

See what dishes the kids make tonight on Food Network at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Flipping the Block, The Great Food Truck Race, Hungry Investors, The Last Ship, The Musketeers, Unforgettable, Cutthroat Kitchen, & Reckless.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/22/13

It’s a relatively slow night tonight, but it’s the start of a VERY busy week on TV. There’s still some fun stuff on, though, (including the series finales of Dexter & Copper), so check out what we’re recommending! 🙂

thegreatfoodtruckracesmallIt’s been another good season of The Great Food Truck Race, and I’m fairly happy with the final three teams. Last week, The Slide Show went home, which was sad, but out of the four teams last week, they were who I was hoping for, simply because I didn’t feel like I knew them as well as the others. Out of the ones that are left—Aloha Plate, Philly’s Finest Sambonis, & Tikka Tikka Taco—I’m rooting for Aloha Plate, simply because I just love those guys. But honestly, I’m going to be okay with whoever wins. Philly’s Finest has had some major issues throughout the season, but they’ve been able to keep themselves in the race regardless, which is impressive. Tikka Tikka and Aloha are all just really nice guys. So it’ll be a fun final two episodes for me.

On tonight’s episode, “Chicago is a Food Truck Kinda Town,” the three remaining teams find a big surprise waiting for them at their next stop, Chicago, where the race takes on an exciting new turn.

Find out the surprise and see who goes home tonight on Food Network at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Rachael vs. Guy: Kids Cook-Off & Cutthroat Kitchen.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/18/13

August is flying by, and honestly, I am ready for the kids to go back to school. I love them all dearly, but no matter how many things you do, someone is always complaining about being bored. At least tonight there is some great television to watch that will keep us anything but bored. Let’s see what’s on.

Megan’s Choice

whodunnitsmallIt’s time for the killer to be revealed on Whodunnit?, and I’m ready to find out. Aren’t you? I’m torn between it being Melina or Kam who is the killer, but at this point, it could be anyone. We watched how Ronnie was killed with Ricin, then ejected from the hot tub with an explosion of liquid nitrogen—then we ended with Giles showing up on a video tied up with guns to his head. I wonder who did it?

On tonight’s finale, “Golden Cuffs,” with only four guests remaining, a final game of speed and memory will determine the winner—as well as the killer—at Rue Manor.

To solve the mystery, tune in to ABC at 9/8c.

I’ll also be watching Unforgettable, Cutthroat Kitchen, and The Great Food Truck Race.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/23/12

Welcome to the first day of a crazy week of TV premieres. It’s a relatively slow night comparatively, but Kyle & I both still have things we think you should be watching, so read on to find out what they are. 😉

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s episode of The Great Food Truck Race had me on the edge of my seat for kind of the first time this season. My vote from the beginning has been for Seoul Sausage, and they’ve been doing well enough all season that I haven’t had to worry whether or not they’ll be sent home. But they slacked off last week and kind of didn’t give it their all, especially when it was just the one chef in there alone, and it caused them to be in the bottom three. They vowed at the end that it wouldn’t happen again…and I hope it doesn’t, but if they play again like they did last week, then they deserve whatever happens. Just sayin’. Much to my happiness, Momma’s Grizzly Grub was sent packing. I didn’t really like them, so I was happy that they were gone. *shrug*

On tonight’s episode, “Mistake by the Lake?” the final three teams head to Cleveland, where they have to take an everyday vegetable and create a winning appetizer. This week’s speed bump includes a hot dog cart for each team.

Don’t miss it tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Great Food Truck Race @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Cupcake Wars, $24 in 24 on Food Network, All American Handyman & Copper.
