Looks like Walter White is doing some planning for his future.
I believe this is what they call "the light at the end of the tunnel."
Two episodes! And they are even airing in the right order! What did I do to deserve this delicious treat? Oh right, have to cope with the fact that they've effectively killed Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. The mere idea of a life without James van der Beek on my TV? That's a high price to pay, but at least "The Marry Prankster" and "Our Best Friend's Wedding" both hit it out of the park. And for me this had an even more anticipated "friend kissing friend" scene than the one on New Girl. Don't you people even try and deny that you've wanted to see Brad and Max make out. But it wasn't the liplock I'd been dreaming of, so now I just want more. Can next season (if there is one) somehow play with this romantic tension more? The only real quibble I have about these episodes is that now I have "Take on Me" stuck in my head from watching the A-ha'd video at the end.
While I had a bunch of problems with last week's episode, "Cooler" was almost entirely fantastic. And not just because it finally addressed all of the Nick/Jess 'shippers out there in the universe, but because it revived the wonderful game True American. A game only rivaled by Calvinball in my opinion, and I'd very much like to play if ever I can figure out the rules and/or have enough drunken history buff friends around. Anyway, with all that said, here's why this episode did 97 percent of the right things.
Leslie Knope's alter ego adds "author" to her résumé.
The standout musical performance of the past week wasn't on Nashville or Glee or even American Idol, instead it was when a dad band got formed on the "Chinese Chicken" episode of Suburgatory.The garage group, occasionally known as Sheila's Pets, was just three dads until Sheila came along and busted out some Heart. We know Ana Gasteyer can sing (we've seen her on Broadway), but it was nice to see this show take advantage of those pipes. Watch the clip below to see her rockin' out.
Pick up Downton Abbey's third season on DVD... or Shirley MacLaine gets it!
Call it whatever you want, just don't put Lori from Walking Dead anywhere near it.
Maroon 5 frontman, The Voice host and American Horror Story murder victim Adam Levine tried his hand at sketch comedy over the weekend as a Saturday Night Live host. How'd he do? Well, let's just say he shouldn't quit his day job anytime soon... whatever that happens to be this week. (At least the writers clearly realized his limitations, writing around him as much as humanly possible.) Despite the night's overall suckitude, there were a few bits that worked. Here are the sketches we would have turned our big red plush chairs around for.
We spend the morning after Downton Abbey mourning the passing of a popular Downton resident. Needless to say, spoiler alert.
