Tuesday, April 5, 2011: Lights Out

Tuesday, April 5, 2011: <i>Lights Out</i>

It's fight night! We mean it this time! After twelve episodes of build-up, in which we got one real boxing match and a cage fight, we're finally getting the main event we've been promised all season. Patrick "Lights" Leary and "Death Row" Reynolds will get in the ring together to settle the question of who's the Heavyweight Champion once and for all. And this time they can't put it off any more!

We already knew this would be a war of attrition, and Patrick's dad reaffirms that in the preview, saying "We're not gonna let this go to a decision. This time these are your judges." (He's holding Patrick's gloved mitts at the time.) It looks like we even get some extracurricular fighting, with somebody -- possibly Patrick, maybe his brother, maybe that reporter guy -- taking a shot to a face outside a parked car. Sadly, it's too little, too late, as the show has not been renewed for a second season. It was great to see Holt McCallany take the lead while it lasted, though, so hopefully he'll land on his feet in another series.

The Lights Out series finale airs tonight at 10 PM on FX, opposite new episodes of Parenthood, Body of Proof, The Good Wife, Pregnant in Heels, Deadliest Catch and William & Kate: A Fairytale Romance on BBC America.
