Cast: Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Anna Torv, Seth Gabel, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Writer: Jeff Pinkner & Akiva Goldsman Director: Frederick E.O. Toye Network: Fox, airs Friday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 After a couple of solid weeks, the “Nothing As it Seems” episode of FRINGE takes a detour in monster-of-the week territory that just seems to out-of-place in the FRINGE universe. “Nothing As It Seems” revisits a previous case from Peter’s original timeline about the man who turns into a monstrous humanoid porcupine. That case is revived in the new timeline, but things are drastically different. What we […]Read On »

Stars: Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Ken Jeong, Chevy Chase, Jim Rash Writer: Chris McKenna Director:  Dan Eckman Network: NBC, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 29, 2012 CHUCK was shameless and appreciative of their association with Subway. The sandwich company was incorporated into the fabric of the show – which, along with the fans, was integral in keeping the series on the air as long as it did. Now COMMUNITY is biting the Subway hand that feeds with its hilarious new episode “Digital Exploration Of Interior Design.” A new sandwich shop […]Read On »


TV Review: TOUCH – Season 1 – “Safety In Numbers”

Stars: Kiefer Sutherland, David Mazouz, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Danny Glover Writer: Carol Barbee Director: Stephen Williams Network: Fox, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 30, 2012 Every time a show proves to be as good out of the gate as TOUCH, you almost fear that the inevitable downslide is coming. SMASH and ALCATRAZ are perfect examples of first season series that started off strong and faltered quickly. I’m hoping the bigger picture of TOUCH, since it has proven to be so focused, will be the exception to the rule. It appears it has a pretty detailed plan all mapped out in […]Read On »


TV Review: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES – Season 3 – “Break on Through”

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Rebecca Sonnenshine, Based on the book by L.J. Smith Director: Lance Anderson   Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: March 22, 2012 Hmmm, two episodes back in and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES still doesn’t feel like it’s quite up to its potential. This series has been one of my favorite guilty pleasures for a couple of years, but following on the heels of the original vamp storyline this season, it seems that the writers are at a loss as to what to do next (besides bodily harm to Alaric (Matt Davis). So […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 29, 2012 It was go-home time on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, as once again someone gets the boot. As you know by now, Heejun Han got eliminated with Hollie Cavanaugh and Skylar Laine in the bottom three. I’ll break down how it happened in terms of the elimination as usual with the benefit of you not having to sit through another lame Ford commercial, footage of the contestants moving into the mansion (although Skylar’s reactions were […]Read On »

To the delight of its devoted fans, COMMUNITY has resumed its third season on Thursday nights at 8 PM. Created by Dan Harmon, the half-hour comedy started with the premise of young lawyer Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) having to return to community college to shore up his law degree, but as it proceeded, the show has taken on movie parodies, Claymation and all manner of other unpredictable content. Chevy Chase co-stars as Pierce Hawthorne, who made a fortune in the moist towelette business but joins the central study group as a way to make friends, even though he’s not very […]Read On »

Cast: Ryan Seacrest, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson Network: Fox, airs Wednesdays and Thursdays @ 8 p.m. Original Telecast: March 28, 2012 Something interesting happened last week on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, I got all the picks right. I’m as shocked as you. I predicted that Erika Van Pelt, Heejun Han and DeAndre Brackensick would be in the bottom and that Erica would be going home. That’s what happened. I guess the sun does shine on a dog’s ass every so often. Anyway, this week on IDOL the contestants are singing songs from their own personal […]Read On »


TV Review: SOUTH PARK – Season 16 – “Faith Hilling”

Writer: Trey Parker Director: Trey Parker Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesday nights Original Telecast: March 29, 2012 Yes, it’s too early in the Season 16 run of SOUTH PARK, but I have to admit, it’s going to be hard for creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone to top the episode “Faith Hilling.” I’ll go on record as saying this could very well be the best episode of the new season, or at least may end the funniest. It’s jam packed with tons of satirical targets, but deals primarily with how fast memes spread in society since the advent of the […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Shalisha Francis Director: Paul Holahan Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: March 26, 2012 ABC has been teasing the whole “I remember getting shot,” thing since last week’s episode, so you kind of go into “47 Seconds” expecting a more intense episode of CASTLE, which you sort of have. Just as a quick recap, the memory thing comes from last season’s cliffhanger finale, in which Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) got shot, and Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) held her and finally declared his […]Read On »
