Stars: David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel, Michaela Conlin, T.J. Thyne, Tamara Taylor, John Francis Daley, Tina Majorino, Luke Kleintank, Tiffany Hines, David Andriole, Missy Doty, Mary Pat Gleason, Mark Saul, Brandon Molale Writer: Keith Fogelsong, series created by Hart Hanson, based on the life and writers of Kathy Reichs Director: Dwight Little Network: Fox, Mondays @ 8 PM Airdate: April 9, 2012 It was probably a safe bet that many BONES fans wanted to see new parents Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) adoring their baby Christine, so the episode “The Bump in the Road” opens with that. It’s fine […]Read On »

Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Christine Lavaf Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: April 13, 2012 It’s more “Over There” action with FRINGE as “The Consultant” finds Walter (John Noble) traveling to the other side to help Bolivia (Anna Torv) and Lincoln (Seth Gabel) figure out why people dying in one universe, are resulting in similar deaths in the other universe. Naturally, David Robert Jones (Jared Harris) is at the heart of this – essentially creating a device that tests out whether events in both universes can […]Read On »


TV Review: TOUCH – Season 2 – “Entanglement”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Mazouz, Danny Glover Writer: Chris Levinson Director: Milan Cheylov Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 12, 2012 One of the realities of TOUCH is that there’s generally a lot going on as the story paths weave and interchange. “Entanglement” may be this episode’s title, but it could just as easily have been the series title, as well. Martin Bohm (Kiefer Sutherland), who lost his wife when the World Trade Center came down during the 9/11 attacks, is trying to raise his autistic son Jake (David Mazouz) who can’t speak. The trick is that Jake “sees” and apparently “feels” […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 13, 2012 Decision time and would we have a shocker on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL? Well, by now you know that in some mind boggling voting process Jessica Sanchez got the least amount of votes. However, the judges saved her from elimination to sing again. Elise Testone and Joshua Ledet were also in the bottom three. OK, before we move on just a bit on the comments from Jimmy Iovine. I love this part of the […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: April 4, 2012 How do you find the strength to carry on when your friends leave on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL? That was the sanctimonious and oddly-phrased question put before us at the beginning of this episode of IDOL. Wait a minute, this is a freaking reality show, right? Aren’t these fools competing against one another? Shouldn’t they be freaking damn happy it ain’t them? I know Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanaugh are thinking it despite how […]Read On »


TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Butterballs”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: April 11, 2012 Bouncing back from last week’s uneven “Jewpacabra,” SOUTH PARK kicks butt with “Butterballs”, a hilarious take on school bullying and the media’s exploitation of it. Some of this is directly tied to the documentary BULLY which just hit theaters and focuses on actual bullying happening in our public schools. One of the most obvious things creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone bring up with this episode is that by making a film about bullying and then putting the bullied kid as the face […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Dichen Lachman, Kyle Schmid, Rahnuma Panthaky, Andreas Apergis, Dusan Dukic, Alison Louder Writers: Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Adam Kane Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 9, 2012 It’s not exactly a surprise that our vampire Aidan (Sam Witwer), ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) and especially vampire Josh (Sam Huntington) make some bad decisions on BEING HUMAN – the Syfy version. They’re not alone – werewolves Nora (Kristen Hager) and Ray (Andreas […]Read On »


TV Review: GLEE – Season 3 – “Big Brother”

Stars: Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz Writer: Michael Hitchcock Director: Eric Stoltz Network: Fox, airs Tuesday nights Original Telecast: April 10, 2012 The strange thing about GLEE is that if you eliminated half the episodes in a given season, you would have a pretty great show. Often times it feels like every other episode is on target, and that couldn’t be more true as GLEE returns from a nearly two month hiatus with “Big […]Read On »

Val Chmerkovskiy and Sherri Shepherd perform oN DANCING WITH THE STARS - Season 14 -

Stars: Gavin DeGraw, Donald Driver, Roshon Fegan, Melissa Gilbert, Katherine Jenkins, Gladys Knight, William Levy, Maria Menounos, Sherri Shepherd, Jaleel White Network: ABC, airs Mondays, Tuesdays Original Telecast: April 10th, 2012 Every season has one, a shocking elimination. DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 14’s shocker may be the much-too-soon elimination of Sherri Shepherd and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy.  She will be missed; her charisma matched only  by Carson Kressley’s two seasons earlier. But that wasn’t the only surprise of the night. Roshon Fegan & Chelsie Hightower, who came in second, were in the bottom two! If that doesn’t scare everyone, […]Read On »


TV Review: SMASH – Season 1 – “Understudy”

Stars: Debra Messing, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Angelica Houston Writers: Jason Grote Director: Mimi Leder Network: NBC, airs Mondays Original Telecast: April 9, 2012 Sometimes you just wish you could holler at the writers of SMASH “the play’s the thing.” This episode, “Understudy,” gets it, well, almost. We’ve still got lyricist Julia (Debra Messing) still dealing with her husband leaving her, which is sad and all, but we’re not seeing its affect on the show. Dev (Raza Jaffrey) is having a really, really bad day, being passed up for a much-wanted promotion to a scumbucket – but again, just […]Read On »
