About Last Night...RAISING HOPE, RINGER, BREAKING IN and More - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


March 7, 2012 by  

A relatively light Tuesday night of TV! Let’s talk about what went down…

RAISING HOPE! Who would have thought Katy Perry could pull off the comedy that well? I loved that Burt and Virginia wanted a stop sign outside of their home so they could be friendly. Plus, Virginia wanting baby Hope to see strong female role models was so sweet.

I’m still not sold on NEW GIRL, even though “Injured” might have been their best episode yet. I know last night’s episode was aired out of order (it was originally intended to take place earlier in the year), but quite frankly, I feel like it took away from the series that it wasn’t shown earlier. It shouldn’t take this long for me to care about these characters.

RINGER. Oh, messed up probably beyond repair, RINGER. This show should be fun. Heck, at the very least, it should be a good guilty pleasure. But they’ve mangled this central mystery so badly that I don’t even want Nestor Carbonell (Machado) on my screen. I don’t care why Bridget is running away. I’m not sure if I care who was trying to kill Siobhan. The show is all over the place and trying to juggle so many things at once that it feels like they don’t know what to do and everything is falling apart.

In many ways, it felt like the BREAKING IN season premiere was another pilot. It wasn’t the strongest episode they’ve done, but I adored the end with THE BREAKFAST CLUB homage. I’m just so happy to have this show back.

    I HATE it when they air episodes out of order. I feel as though it never works (hello, Glee season 2).
