Fox’s BONES is in its tenth season, Thursdays at 8 PM. By all reports, everyone enjoyed the show’s change of pace 200th episode, “The 200th in the 10th,” which aired as the midseason finale. Directed by star David Boreanaz, who normally plays FBI Agent Seeley Booth, the segment found all of the regular actors playing different characters in a 1950s Hitchcockian tale that saw Booth as a Robin Hood-like jewel thief and Emily Deschanel’s Dr. Temperance Brennan as a rookie cop trying to prove her worth as a detective. Arguably the biggest stretch was for Tamara Taylor, who usually plays […]Read On »

Voices: Trey Parker, Matt Stone Writer-Director: Trey Parker Original Telecast: October 9, 2014 Network: Comedy Central, airs Wednesdays As I suspected last week, SOUTH PARK is experimenting with something they haven’t done before (except for their clear cut multi-parters) – they are establishing continuity throughout Season 18. Usually, the show is very willy nilly when it comes to its weekly scenarios. Something happens one week, next week continuity has completely changed and it’s a whole other story with little reference to what has come before. However, this year, it’s all changed. The Season Premiere ramifications led into “Gluten Free Ebola” […]Read On »

Creator Vince Gilligan did an amazing job of paying off EVERYTHING that he set into motion over the course of the series run. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) started off as […]Read On »
