Coming out of winter hibernation tonight, The Event better have an awesome "previously on" supercut to start off with, because I can barely remember anything about this show beyond that girl shooting herself in the knee a few episodes back. Maybe you all have better memories then me and can remember things like which characters are aliens, who was in on the assassination plot, and why the show is called The Event. You would think that NBC would be nice enough to put out a DVD of the first half of the season, like Fox did with Glee.
From the minds of two of your favorite prison-breaking authorities Nick Santora and Matt Olmstead (executive producers of Prison Break) comes Breakout Kings, a light, bouncy action show about U.S. Marshals recruiting convicts to help them catch escaped inmates. Since that kind of thing is hard to film on the beach, this show is not on USA, where it probably really belongs, but instead lives on A&E's sparse scripted roster. No bikinis in prison, you see.
Did the Oscars leave you feeling blue? As if maybe you just need to hear one more rushed acceptance speech? Or maybe you just want to see a televised awards show that gives prizes to books and Tyler Perry? No matter the cause of your desire, the NAACP Image Awards are here to give you another black-tie event before the springtime comes.
Premiering tonight on Food Network, Ice Brigade is about a company of ice sculptors whose work is way more complex than anything Bill Murray ever made for Punxsutawney. Tonight's episode looks pretty straightforward, with them making a whole lounge complete with an ice pool table, but over the next few weeks the brigade will be working on everything from pianos to maybe even an icy Han Solo frozen in carbonite.
If you didn't stick around after America's Next Top Model for the premiere, you might want to this week. The title might seem like something you might see on the cover of magazine, but Shedding for the Wedding is basically a wedding themed The Biggest Loser, complete with challenges straight out of the worst bridal shower ever. With these challenges providing rewards like awesome cakes or invitations or whatever else goes into a wedding, the weight loss suddenly becomes about more than those cliched feelings of wanting to be healthy for your partner. Suddenly it's all about working toward the most awesome party of a wedding day.
If you haven't been watching Raising Hope because it looks like another white-trash joke factory in the vein of My Name is Earl, you're missing out. Not only was Earl a pretty damn funny show (most of the time), but Hope is even funnier, and has an even better cast. Martha Plimpton, Garret Dillahunt and Cloris Leachman are at the top of their games, and newcomer Lucas Neff has an amazing deadpan as the idiotic lead Jimmy, who's raising a baby he fathered with a executed murderess.
