If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/7/11

We’ve made it through another week, and I am so happy. It’s a long weekend here in Canada, for our Thanksgiving. Tomorrow, I’ll be baking a couple of pies, but tonight, I’m going to be kicking back and enjoying some delicious TV. Let’s see what you should be watching tonight.

It wouldn’t be a wonderful Friday without the Reagans in my living room. I love Blue Bloods, and last week’s episode was heart wrenching. From the moment that Danny shot that police officer by mistake, to the end of the episode when he had a silent moment of male forgiveness with the cop he shot, I was riveted. It was great how Danny understood completely why his dad, the police commissioner, couldn’t swoop in and save him. That made think more highly of the whole Reagan family.

On tonight’s episode, “Critical Condition,” Danny learns that a former cop was involved in an attempted bank robbery. Meanwhile, Jamie works with a new partner (Monica Raymund).

To see the exciting lives of the Reagan family unfold, tune in to CBS at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Blue Bloods @ Clicker.

I’m really enjoying this season of Nikita, not only because Michael & Nikita are together—which I love—but also because it’s fun seeing Birkhoff without the restraints of Division, Amanda, & Percy holding him back from being his full snarky self. Last week, we saw that Alex does indeed have an ax to grind with Nikita, but she isn’t totally gone to the dark side, because rather than taking Nikita down when she had the chance, she chose to throw herself at the woman who was about to be shot, saving her and letting Nikita get away—not to mention being arrested herself. Speaking of…Sean (played by Dillon Casey), who got Alex out of jail, is VERY sexy, but he’s basically Alex’s babysitter and doesn’t understand Nikita and how she operates well enough to be anything but a hindrance to Alex. He’s still nice to look at. 😉

On tonight’s episode, Birkhoff tells Nikita and Michael that a black box file reveals that an international terrorist named Ramon (guest star Simon Kassianides), who has been taking credit for some serious political assassinations, now works for Division. This news upsets Nikita, since she was the agent that captured Ramon years ago and turned him over to Percy. Amanda convinces Alex to kill Anton Kochenko (guest star Paul Braunstein), a man who used to work for Alex’s father, and plans to let Ramon take the credit for the murder. However, when Nikita disrupts Amanda’s plan, Amanda fights back by taking what Nikita loves most…Michael.

Check it out tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Nikita @ Clicker.

I can’t wait for tonight’s fourth season premiere of Sanctuary on Syfy. The series follows the adventures of Dr. Helen Magnus and her crew at The Sanctuary, a safe-haven for mythical monsters and creatures, which they refer to as Abnormals. At the end of last season, Nikola Tesla had been restored back into a Vampire, a huge wave of Abnormals was seen emerging from Hollow Earth, and Helen had been sent back in time. That last sentence alone says so much about why enjoy this show! It is truly a sci-fi series where anything can and will happen. Most of the show is shot on virtual green-screen sets, which really allows them the freedom to do anything. And it’s not like the poor effects on Ringer—this show looks really great in HD! I love the way Sanctuary is able to give us entertaining self-contained monster-of-the-week episodes, while also exploring much larger ongoing story arcs.

In tonight’s season premiere, “Tempus,” Magnus goes to 1898 London to try to stop Adam Worth from saving his daughter, which would alter the current time line.

See the premiere tonight on Syfy at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of Sanctuary @ Clicker.

Have a heart and tune in to A Gifted Man, because it will definitely tug at your heart strings. Once an egotistical, selfish, gifted surgeon who has the taste for luxury, Michael Holt’s (Patrick Wilson) world gets thrown through a loop when his ex-wife Anna (Jennifer Ehle) who was a free clinic doctor, as well as the love of Michael’s life, shows up to teach Michael to be a better person. Sadly, Michael’s ex-wife has passed away, and she’s teaching him these lessons from the after life. Through her teachings, though, Michael decides to live a less lavish lifestyle and devote more time to less fortunate patients and really make his life worth living and give back to those in need. Now, Michael can leave a mark that hopefully will make a difference in the world.

On tonight’s episode, as Michael interviews potential new clinic directors, one man passes out, and then later refuses medical attention. Also, Michael discovers lesions on a patient’s brain that may require some immediate surgery. Rachelle Lefevre (Twilight, What About Brian, Off the Map) guest stars.

Tune in at 8/7c on CBS for an all new episode! Learn where to find episodes online of A Gifted Man @ Clicker.

Another show I’m enjoying this season, even though I wasn’t sure I would still, is CSI: NY. Danny has been promoted to Sergeant, and while that’s great, it means he’s out of the lab. They have managed—so far, anyway—to show him a good amount of time so far, even though he isn’t in the lab alongside Lindsay, so I have hopes that will continue. Meanwhile, Mac is back, after he took a long leave of absence. Some of the team thought he was gone for good, but Jo never doubted that he’d be back. Speaking of Jo…I absolutely love Sela Ward. I always have. She’s fantastic in everything I’ve ever seen her in, and this show isn’t any different. I love her sweet, snarky, southern charm, and the shipper in me really hopes to maybe see a relationship between Jo and Mac at some point. Sure, he’ll always grieve his wife, but it’s been 10 years. Let the man move on, for goodness sakes!

On tonight’s episode, “Cavallino Rampante,” when the body of a beautiful young woman is found in a stolen Ferrari, the investigation leads to a family of car thieves, but the CSIs must find the murderer before the rest of the family meets the same fate. Courtney Ford (True Blood, Dexter) guest stars as Nicole, one of the car thieves, and Tim Guinee (who has guest starred on a lot of great TV, like The Good Wife, Lie to Me, 24 & Ghost Whisperer) also guest stars.

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