Smith Director: Rob Hardy      Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 18, 2012 THE VAMPIRE DIARIES continues the evolution of Elena (Nina Dobrev) in the new episode “Memorial”, and while that is the central point of this one, there’s a lot going on in and around a few other storylines as well.

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: October 24, 2012 It’s been some time since SOUTH PARK has done a Halloween episode, but it was worth the wait as Trey Parker and Matt Stone come up with a new classic with “A Nightmare on Facetime.” Sending up THE SHINING, Blockbuster Video’s financial woes, The Avengers and our obsession with Apple products, there’s enough good will here to provide ample laughs and a great story to boot.

Team Gilles Marini came out swinging in their team dance only to end up taking it all off (almost). Sadly, some technique was lost, not too mention some conformity and timing. But hell, it was fun to watch! I’ll give them that! In the end Team Gilles …Read On »

Allen, Connor Paolo Writer: Dan Dworkin and Jay Beattie Director: Randy Zisk Network: ABC, Wednesday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: October 21, 2012 It’s a little annoying that even though this is a relatively focused episode of REVENGE, I have to dock “Intuition” a grade because of a personal pet peeve – it’s told in flashback. We start with a maid cleaning up a pool of blood from the Grayson entry way, with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) watching, then crumpling up a piece of paper and tossing it into the fire. Then “24 hours earlier….” Oh, …Read On »
