'Lie to Me' Recap - 'Dirty Royal'

October 20th, 2010 7:02am EDT
Lie_to_Me
It's the third season of Lie to Me, and there's a lot of warning flags going up even this early into the season that Lightman's getting too big for his britches. Yes, his arrogance is one of the things the audience loves him for, but there is such a thing as too far and he's slowly heading in that direction. It has more to do with the lack of connection he's had with the team so far. They were like an odd little family unit before, and now they seem very spread out. He's fighting with Foster constantly, Torres is usually just around to look confused and wide eyed, and Loker is trying to get...

'House' Recap - 'Unplanned Parenthood'

October 19th, 2010 3:35pm EDT
House and Rachel
Last week House traded his massage therapist/former lover for the chance to be more in Cuddy's life and meet her daughter. He might just be regretting it this week! Cuddy asks him to babysit for Rachel when everyone else can't do it, and although he argues and whines, he agrees to do it in the end. This is why he spends most of the episode panicking with Wilson about Rachel and not paying much attention to his actual case. It's about another child who is dying, and instead of two years she's two days old.

The baby has complications right out of birth and we see it happen on a home video th...

'Weeds' Recap - 'To Moscow, And Quickly'

October 19th, 2010 3:26pm EDT
Price sister
Nancy's sister is the one being interviewed this time about their childhood. We haven't seen that much about Nancy Botwin and how she came to be the crazy woman she is today. In the first season there was an impression that she was very normal before Judah died suddenly, but the writers are unraveling the truth. Judah just kept the crazy at bay. Anyway last week the family tried to settle in a trailer park, and Nancy got them in trouble by having dirty violent sex with a married bartender. As a fan of Saved by the Bell, I will be traumatized forever seeing Zack Morris mostly naked. So now t...

The Best & Worst Of Edward Norton

October 8th, 2010 12:00pm EDT
Stone-081110-0001.jpg
Edward Norton is an Academy Award nominated actor, but he is also an accomplished screenwriter and director. While he does not have the longest list of performers for an actor so well established and respected, it's all about how well he chooses the films that he does do. He is also well known for being an environmental activist and charity worker. This weekend the newest of his movies hits the theaters titled Stone, starring Norton, Robert De Niro, Frances Conroy, and Milla Jovovich. It's about a prisoner (Norton) about to go up from a parole hearing and he's trying to manipulate and black...

'Lie To Me' Recap - 'In The Red'

October 6th, 2010 1:54pm EDT
Lie To me - FOX
It's a little jarring that Lie to Me ended its second season only a month ago, but circumstances picked up the new season early. You see, Lone Star was cancelled very, very quickly, and so FOX pushed up the premiere date. It wasn't supposed to be back until mid-November, but here it is, back to the slot right after House. In the finale of last season, the show was a bit shaken up by the brutal shooting of FBI Agent Ben Reynolds, and Torres and Loker hooked up but then split apart due to his promotion. Neither of those things are discussed in the premiere, which is annoying, and for some rea...

'Weeds' Recap - 'Pinwheels And Whirligigs'

October 6th, 2010 8:15am EDT
The cast of Weeds
Andy Botwin has a problem, and that is he doesn't seem to understand that Nancy will do whatever she feels like. Even if she swears up and down 'I will listen to you,' the second she is bored she will just do what she wants. After royally messing up their time in Seattle, Nancy agrees to give the power reins over to Andy, because he actually knows how to live off the grid and keep away from people. He gives probably excellent advice on how to do that, but it lasts about ten seconds before Nancy gets the idea to bring the family to a carnival. Because she's like that. No honestly, the truth ...

'House' Recap - 'Unwritten'

October 5th, 2010 3:05pm EDT
Hugh Laurie and Amy Irving
Amy Irving guest stars in this week's episode of House, and it must be said that she does a fantastic job. Her character is a brilliant but disturbed children's book author, and she has written her final book. She speaks to the image of her main character like he is a real person, and puts a gun in her mouth. Before she can kill herself, she has a seizure and falls over. Her nurse calls 911, and House it turns out is a big fan of her series. It's the little funny details about House that always works for him, such as his love for soap opera and teen novels. Alice is the writer and House has...

'The Mentalist' Recap - 'Cackle-Bladder Blood'

October 4th, 2010 4:48pm EDT
Mentalist-111709-0001.jpg
It's common knowledge that it was Patrick Jane's fault that his wife and daughter were brutally murdered by the serial killer Red John, but sometimes due to his pain it's difficult to remember other people suffered too. He's come a long way even in the last season from being very touchy and slightly insane about what happened to his life, and now being able to come to terms with his wife's death in a slightly better way. Last week's episode was about his wife's brother Danny stirring up trouble for Jane and reminding him about how badly he failed his wife.

Danny calls Jane and asks for hel...

'Weeds' Recap - 'A Shoe For A Shoe'

September 28th, 2010 3:33pm EDT
Weeds
There was a pretty intense cliffhanger in the last episode of Weeds, and unfortunately several of the problems wrap up very fast. The CPS looking for Stevie are shooed off when Silas comes in and starts being offensive in sign language, and Nancy puts her fellow maid in a head lock until she just runs off. This probably needs to happen quickly because the real thing to worry about is Shane being taken. Cesar says he will trade Shane for Stevie, and for Nancy to start driving and they'll meet up somewhere. She packs the family into the car and comes up with a plan. Silas brings up a point th...

'House' Recap - 'Selfish'

September 28th, 2010 3:01pm EDT
House Selfish
House is like a giddy schoolboy at times in this episode, and it's even more endearing then the over-romantic attitude from the last episode. He waits for Cuddy to get to the hospital and flirts with her, then gropes her as long as she'll allow it, and she tells him not to announce it the world until they go to HR. Aw, Cuddy, you wish. He immediately announces to his team and Wilson that he's sleeping with her, and it's almost sweet how excited he seems to be about it. He's snarky and acerbic as always, but you can tell that underneath House really is on the almost hopeful side. Naturally e...
