I love the smell of season premieres in the evening! The 2012-2013 television season is finally upon us, but fret not, there are still more spoilers to spill. I’m honing in on the geektastic “The Big Bang Theory” as my last show to spoil.

Season finales are essentially the Hollywood version of final exams. They have to shock and awe and entice viewers into returning after four arduous months of dead air. From births and deaths to break-ups and OMG-worthy shockers, I’m grading 10 season finales. The SPOILER ALERT is implied.

Reckoning, Revenge’s thrilling season ender saw Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) not only confront her father’s killer in a satisfying and strangely sweet final fight, but surrender to her feelings for ruggedly handsome bartender, Jack.

‘Tis the season… for Ricky Gervais to make nasty jokes and make Robert Downy Jr. blush…. Fa la la la la la la la la. That’s right, the Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning. There were a few surprises, a few snubs, and a few nominees that make you go, “Hmmmm”? Let’s break it down by Movie and TV categories.

The most surprising inclusion here? ‘The Ides of March,’ which up ‘til now was considered an also-ran in awards season. But the film picked up nods for Best Drama, Best Director (George Clooney),...

Two Jews' Review 'In Time' - Both Agree This Sci-Fi Thriller Is A Waste Of Time (Video)

In Time
Two Jews On Flim - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: 'In Time' is a Sci-Fi thriller written, directed and produced by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca), maybe that's the problem. You know what they say about wearing too many hats.

Okay, when the film begins, we discover that we are now in the future....A future where you stop aging at 25 (guess that would put a big dent in the Botox industry). Your mother, sister, grandmother, grandfather etc, all look 25 so it's hard to tell if you're hitting on someone's mother or daughter. You get the idea.

After 25, you get one free year to live. After that, you have t...

Mayim Bialik
You know how there's that person you just know is smarter than you? Mayim Bialik is one of those people.

Yes, the actress plays a scientist on CBS' hit comedy The Big Bang Theory, but art imitates life: she also has her own Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UCLA, and oh yeah, she's written a book, too. I'll admit that during our first interview last year I was actually a little intimidated. Mayim recently sat down with me again to discuss what's happening in season five of Big Bang and how she's flexing her real-life smarts.

We literally just started season five of Big Bang Theory. Can you ta...

The CBS "nerd-com" The Big Bang Theory clued the viewer in on what to expect right from the get-go by naming its two main characters "Sheldon" and "Leonard" (though all resemblance to the famous gangster actor-turned-TV producer ended right there!) They are both brilliant physicists, living together in a technology-cluttered apartment, and spend their free time with a circle of fellow geeks from Cal Tech.

And, need we add, Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) are despite their hyper-intelligence hopelessly "backward" on a social level; after all, it isn't easy to pick up...

British Invasion: UK Shows Coming To America

Life On Mars
With the American version of "The Office" still leading NBC's fall line-up, remakes of successful British shows have become a hot commodity. Picking up on this success, several networks have snatched up the rights to remake some of the most popular British shows. It's a process that has obviously worked in the past, at least in the world of reality television. "Dancing with the Stars," "Big Brother," and "Celebrity Fit Club" all had their start in the Fallen Empire, but remakes of drama and comedy haven't been nearly as successful. For better of for worse, here's a list of shows that will i...
