If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/21/12

It’s the start of another great week in television, and while I’m pumped for all the new episodes of our favorites, I’m getting a little sick of the presidential debates interfering with the schedule. Yes, I do realize how self-centred that sounds, but honestly, it’s getting a little old—is it time to vote yet? (Note—I won’t be voting, as I’m Canadian; however, you should!) Enough chit-chat. Let’s get to us bossing you around as to what you should be watching.

The must-see show for ABC this fall has to be 666 Park Avenue, which never fails to cause the hair on my neck to rise from the creepy factor. I’m loving the fact that this season is sprinkled with tons of new twists on dramas, because let’s be honest, there are only so many different takes on crime solving or medical dramas. Last week’s episode had me actually wanting to watch with the lights on. Seriously, how creepy was that whole thing with the little girl? Brrr… Spine chills all over again.

On tonight’s episode, “Hero Complex,” Henry learns that Gavin is under investigation for questionable real-estate transactions and must choose between loyalty to his boss or his friendship with Gavin. Meanwhile, Jane discovers the identity of the thief at the Drake.

To have your weekly fix of terror, tune in to ABC at 10/9c. Learn where to find episodes online of 666 Park Avenue @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Walking Dead, Once Upon a Time, The Amazing Race, Outback Hunters, and Cupcake Wars.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/14/12

I’m sorry this is up so late, but it couldn’t be avoided because I had to edit a last-minute manuscript for work yesterday, so I’m running behind on everything I usually do Saturday. Oops. 🙂 But here’s what we think you should be watching tonight. 😉

I LOVED last week’s season premiere of Halloween Wars on Food Network. It just amazes me the creations these teams can come up with. The clowns were every degree of scary and crazy you can imagine. The right team went home, so I was thrilled. Tonight should be another good episode. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

On tonight’s episode, “Battle of the Vampire Killer,” four remaining teams made up of a pumpkin carving expert, cake artist, and candy craftsman must capture an epic battle in which a vampire killer slays his prey. In the end, one team will be eliminated. Tonight’s guest judge is Rutina Wesley, who plays Tara on Tru Blood.

See the amazing work tonight on Food Network at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Halloween Wars @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing America’s Funniest Home Videos, Cupcake Wars, The Amazing Race, The Mentalist, Iron Chef America, & Copper.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/7/12

Here in Canada, we’re celebrating a long weekend for Thanksgiving, so I plan on staying up late to catch up on all the shows I have saved up on my DVR, but that’s not until I take in some new TV tonight. It’s been a busy couple of weeks for television, and this week is shaping up to be just as busy. Let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

I can’t help but get sucked into The Amazing Race every single season, and this season is definitely no exception. Last week’s season premiere had me interested from the first second, although when they did the eating challenge where they ate the fallopian tubes—I may have turned away a time or two to avoid the nausea. I already don’t like Abbie & Ryan because they will never hesitate to step on another team, and while I understand it was for the $2 million, it still seemed a bit sketchy to me.

On tonight’s episode, “Long Hair, Don’t Care,” the race continues in Surabaya, Indonesia, where one team makes a bold move, but it could cost them the game, while another Racer breaks down amid the frustration of a roadblock.

Remember to adjust your DVRs because of the ridiculous sport they call football. To see how the racers manage this leg of the race, tune in to CBS at 8:30/7:30c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Amazing Race @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Once Upon a Time, The Mentalist, 666 Park Avenue, Breaking Amish, Iron Chef America, Homeland, and America’s Funniest Home Videos.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/23/11

An exciting note is only a little over a week until Halloween. Anyone dressing up or doing something fun? I’m going to be a zombie for my niece’s haunted party, where I’m helping chaperone. It’s going to be an amazing week in the fabulous world of television, especially due to a couple of new much anticipated shows premiering. Besides those premieres, there is plenty of new TV to keep you happy, no matter what your preference is. Let’s start with tonight.

Megan’s Choice

My favorite part of TV is how it can take you away from reality and to a land where you’re just an observer. ABC’s new drama, Once Upon A Time, premiering tonight is better than most at this task. What could possibly be better than a TV show that borrows from all of your favorite fairy tales? That’s right…Nothing!

“Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison, House) is a bail bondsperson who has had a hard life since being abandoned as a baby. But when Henry—the son she gave up 10 years ago—finds her, everything changes. Henry thinks his mom is actually the long lost daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, and he’s desperate for her to help him fix things. Henry believes that Storybrooke, the sleepy New England town he calls home, is really part of a curse cast by the Evil Queen, freezing fairytale characters in the modern world with no memory of their former selves. Emma is a tough sell on this idea, but when she actually gets to Storybrooke, she senses that there’s more than meets the eye. Henry gives Emma the tour around town with the help of his fairytale book, the town, and its inhabitants, like Henry’s therapist Archie Hopper and the enigmatic Mr. Gold, seem just strange enough to set off her already suspicious nature. She becomes even more concerned for Henry when she meets his adopted mother, Regina, who he suspects is none other than the Evil Queen herself!

Storybrooke is a place where magic lurks, even though it’s been forgotten, and no one seems able to find their happily ever after. In order to understand where the fairytale world’s former inhabitants came from and what ultimately led to the Evil Queen’s wrath, you’ll need a glimpse into their previous lives. Prepare yourself for an awakening. Meanwhile, the epic battle for the future of all worlds, modern and fairytale alike, is about to begin. For good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.”

Of course, it also boasts a fabulous cast of Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love), Lana Parrilla (Miami Medical), Robert Carlyle (Stargate Universe), Josh Dallas (Thor), and so many more!

To watch your favorite fairytale characters in a light you’ve never seen before, tune in to ABC at 8/7c. and prepare to be addicted from the start. Learn where to find episodes online of Once Upon a Time @ Clicker.

If We Controlled Your Remote… 10/16/11

Tonight ushers in a whole new week of television, and what a week it’s going to be. Tonight is a bit slower, but that doesn’t mean it’s not of the utmost enjoyment. Remember to extend your DVR recordings to account for football and baseball. Also, if you’re a fan of The X Factor, don’t forget the new episode is on tonight on a special night, due to baseball from last week. Now, let’s see what you should be watching.

Megan’s Choice

There is something empowering about watching a woman lawyer kick some serious ass in the court room—and then go be a seductress with her man. That’s what you get when you watch The Good Wife: legal drama with a sexual undertone. Julianna Margulies is amazing, and if you haven’t given yourself the pleasure of watching, you should.

On tonight’s episode, Alicia tries a pro bono case in which the witness becomes the suspect. Elsewhere, Will and Diane discuss the firm’s future.

Dare to fall in love with another drama when you tune in to CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of The Good Wife @ Clicker.
