If We Controlled Your Remote… 9/5/13

Every week that we get closer to the end of September, I realize just how unprepared I am for the oncoming new fall TV onsalught! Even though I’ve got my trusty TiVo to help me record everything, how am I going to find the time to watch it all?! If anyone knows how to pause or create time, please let me know! Fortunately, the summer TV schedule has been far more manageable—several nights, I’ve found myself anxiously awaiting the 10 o’clock hour just for something new to watch! So we’ve got some suggestions to help you find something new to watch tonight.

wilfred95smallTonight, another season of Wilfred comes to a close. Last week, Ryan saved Wilfred from Jenna’s burning house. Wilfred then set out to become a hero dog, trying to prove his bravery in many different ways—all of which just ended up showcasing how wimpy he was. Watching all of these antics, Ryan realized that he wasn’t protecting Jenna by staying away and started letting his guard down. Soon, Jenna started seeing the real Ryan, and by the end of the episode, she kissed him, and Ryan kissed her back.

Was this just a one-time kiss, or is Jenna really in love with Ryan? And what about Drew—what will he do if/when he finds out?! This kiss has been three seasons in the making, although most of the time, it seemed like a one-sided infatuation. I’m interested to see where the show goes from here.

On tonight’s episode, “Regrets,” Jenna forbids Ryan from seeing Wilfred when he needs him most.

Find out why Wilfred needs him and whether or not Ryan will go against Jenna’s wishes tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Rookie Blue, Burn Notice, Graceland, Supermarket Superstar, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 8/22/13

Earlier this week, TiVo released its newest DVR, a six-tuner masterpiece called the Roamio—presumably because it lets you watch your recorded shows remotely on your iPhone or iPad. With the upcoming fall season, having 6 tuners would be any TV addict’s dream—it would be wonderful to never have to worry about conflicting shows ever again! But enough drooling over something I have no plans to buy. Let’s talk about what we recommend you check out tonight (using your now-inferior DVRs).

wilfred822smallI have no idea how the writers of Wilfred come up with these wacky story ideas, but they always end up hilarious. Last week, it was a game of wits between Ryan and Wilfred—each trying to further escalate the mind games being played on the other. What started off with Wilfred trying to trick Ryan into buying him some meatballs from a restaurant from which he was banned escalated into Ryan trying to make Wilfred think he’d had him neutered, to Wilfred pretending to explore his feminine side, to Wilfred trying to neuter Ryan with a knife, and finally, Ryan getting Wilfred to eat some not-quite-meat balls. Once all the mind games were over, Ryan got back to investigating the revelation that it was his sister Kristen who drew the picture of Wilfred as a child. While exploring the drawing for clues, Ryan scratched away a portion to reveal a mysterious symbol.

This season, Wilfred has been introducing some great new unexpected twists and turns while also maintaining the fun. What does this whole turn of events with Ryan’s sister mean? Did she see Wilfred when she was younger, and how about now? Is this some crazy illness that runs in the family? What is this symbol on the drawing, and what does it mean?

On tonight’s episode, “Stagnation,” Wilfred’s obsession with a forbidden love jeopardizes Ryan’s living situation.

Find out who Wilfred’s forbidden love is tonight on FX at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Big Brother, Rookie Blue, Hollywood Game Night, Burn Notice, Graceland, Supermarket Superstar, Childrens Hospital, and NTSF:SD:SUV::.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 6/20/13

Why can’t these networks spread out the TV shows that I watch more evenly throughout the week?! Tuesdays and Fridays are wide open, but there is so much on the rest of the week! And with the summer season quickly approaching, my TiVo is getting busier and busier each week! With so many choices, we’ve got some suggestions for what you should check out tonight. [Note from Jenny: Kyle wrote this up before learning of James Gandolfini’s death from an apparent heart attack at the age of 51. Galdolfini was most well known for his lead role in The Sopranos, and he just finished filming a show called Criminal Justice for HBO that was picked up to series. No word yet on how that role will be handled. Our thoughts and sympathies go out to his friends and family. He was brilliant as the one and only Tony Soprano and will be missed.]

wilfred620smallTonight, Wilfred is back for more of his crazy antics with a double-episode season premiere of…well, Wilfred. When the second season came to a close, Ryan’s girlfriend had been arrested for defrauding the start-up where she and Ryan worked; and Ryan hosted Jenna and Drew’s wedding at his home. In a shocking cliffhanger, Ryan discovered Wilfred in a drawing he’d made as a young boy—and the drawing was older than Wilfred himself.

So we are now back to the question of who or what is Wilfred and why can Ryan see/hear him? Last season, the show got a bit dark near the end. I hope we get back to the lighter, fun (and totally inappropriate) comedy and also get some answers as to what is really going on.

On tonight’s first episode, “Uncertainty,” Wilfred’s original owner is sought out. Then, in “Comfort,” Ryan befriends Wilfred’s enemy.

See the season premiere tonight on FX at 10/9c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 10:30/9:30c.

I’ll also be watching/recording Hannibal, Hell’s Kitchen, Does Someone Have to Go?, The Hero, Burn Notice, Graceland, The Graham Norton Show, Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous, & Race to the Scene.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 7/5/12

Hope all the fellow Americans had a great 4th of July yesterday! I had a pretty good day. Spent time with the family, had a great dinner of hamburgers, sausage, & corn on the cob on the grill, and watched The Matrix 3, since my kiddo had never seen it. It’s back to work today, but thankfully, it’s only a short rest of the week because of yesterday, so… Settle in tonight, relax, and know you don’t have much left of the work week. 🙂 Now, see what we think you should be watching tonight!

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s Rookie Blue was kind of tough to watch. Our poor non-rookie rookies had a rough go of it. Traci screwed up on her first case as a detective-in-training, but then she went on to solve the case with the help of several of the others. She and Jerry are definitely having problems working together. Poor Dov is feeling so guilty about the shooting. He went to give groceries to the boy’s family, and when the sister caught him, he tried to make it up to her by driving her around…but she really just wanted him to explain about that day. It didn’t work out for her, but he seemed to feel better at the end of the episode…until he lied to his girlfriend about going to his appointment with the shrink. She had just received a phone call saying he’d missed his appointment, so she knew he’d lied. It’ll be interesting to see how Dov continues to handle (or not…) the aftereffects of it all. Noelle’s pregnancy & father of the baby has been outed—to Oliver, at least. And Sam and Andy had some cute moments. I love how they are a couple now, yet the show hasn’t become the lovey-dovey “Sandy” show. Those cute moments are enough (for the most part) for this Sam/Andy shipper. 😉

I’m really looking forward to tonight’s episode because we dive deep into Andy’s personal life. I can’t wait to see how she handles seeing her mother. Will Sam help her with it all? Will Traci?

On tonight’s episode, “Messy Houses,” Andy answers a domestic disturbance call to find the social worker on the scene is her estranged mother; Sam, Nick, Chris and Gail search for a mother and her two children; a stash of guns recovered by Detective Barber turns up on the streets. Barbara Williams, Peter MacNeill, Krista Bridges, & Jonathan Goad guest star.

Don’t miss it tonight on ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Rookie Blue @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Duets, Take Me Out, Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell, & Men at Work.
