One word describes most of tonight’s Supernatural: boring. The story about a bizarre vampire family felt recycled and didn’t have many winning moments. Bitten’s Greyston Holt stopped by for a cameo, and it was a pity he was killed because he was the most engaging of the fanged monsters.
I was really encouraged to see Sheriff Mills manage to last the episode without dying– quite a feat for a female support character in Supernatural. I think the episode did a good job of showing her as a reasonably competent hunter, but also as someone who knows how to live with the grief of losing one’s family– something the Winchesters haven’t necessarily learned how to do so well in their own lives.
Many of the support characters this season have had stories that parallel or highlight lessons the boys would do well to learn, and I think Sheriff Mills’ story also fit this pattern. Hopefully in the future we will get to see more of her relationship with Alex, and what impact it has on her life and her efforts to heal from her past tragic experiences.
But then we cross into more of a gray area when the brothers kill demons or angels, because those are creatures that possess human bodies. When they knife a demon or smite an angel, they’re also killing the poor guy or girl that the supernatural entity was controlling. Then there are the rare cases when the Monster of the Week turns out to be just a regular ol’ human, which raises more ethical questions.
Last week on Once Upon a Time, it was to be a showdown at the Storybrooke Corral when the envious green witch challenged Regina contemplating being able to take her heart as an ingredient to her scheme to travel back in time and change her lot in life. Regina decided to leave her heart in the hands of Robin Hood to protect which was a good idea until this week when Zelena sent Rumpelstiltskin to retrieve it.
That’s her color for the season. She’s not angry, because “nothing’s worth the life of a child.” But she is worried, because if Zelena didn’t want the heart to kill her, she must want it for something else. We see her apologize to Belle for everything because she needs to find the answers in the antique store. She’s definitely on a redemption arc.
Cora, however, as we see in this episode and “The Miller’s Daughter” chose the power of the throne over her love for Rumplestiltkin. By Once Upon A Time standards, this makes her more evil than most, as she buries her own heart so that it won’t get in her way. Rumple, who chose magic when faced with the choice between power (magic) and love (his son), wound up regretting it and never stopped trying to alter it.
Guest starring are Rose McGowan as young Cora, Rebecca Mader as Zelena, Sean Maguire as Robin Hood, David De Lautour as Jonathan, Eric Lange as Prince Leopold, Eva Bourne as Princess Eva, Steve Elliott as drunk, Yvette Dudley-Neuman as mid-wife, Brian Knox McGugan as drunk Charlie’s friend, Raphael Alejandro as Roland, Michael P. Northey as Friar Tuck and Gabrielle Giraud as royal aide.

Tonight on Showtime Season 7 of Californication airs with its second episode called, “Julia.” On it, Hank is aggravated by his new co-workers, and Karen gets an unexpected surprise.
On last week’s episode season 7 began with Hank eager to reunite with Karen, the love of his life, but things didn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Hank got hired by the “Santa Monica Cop” showrunner; and a reporter asked to interview Hank for his college paper. Did you watch last week’s episode? We did and we recapped it right here for you.
Through the season’s first two episodes, Hank makes a push to become a grownup. After committing to a job and avoiding any sexual encounters of the easy and carefree kind, Hank is on the right track and Karen is buying into it. And why shouldn’t she? Hank seems refreshed, focused, and maybe even blessed by Faith’s groupie magic. Karen has alluded to the fact that Becca might be the only thing that kept the lovers tied together over the last 20 or so years. Now with Becca off on a literary pilgrimage (whatever the hell that is), Hank and Karen can savor the empty nest by reigniting their romance, hopefully this time for good.
Tonight’s episode begins with Hank receiving a “murse” from Karen. He is very excited to carry his belongings on his first day of his new writing job in his murse. Karen is rather turned-on by the fact that Hank seems to be getting his life on track and shares how sexy she thinks he is, followed by a kiss. Just then, Marcy and Charlie come out of the bedroom after having “tried” to make things happen again, with no luck. Marcy shares, in detail, how she tried to help Charlie with his problem, and how it didn’t work at all.
In “Resident Evil” Stefan and Elena experience unsettling dreams of the life they might have had together; Bonnie has a disturbing encounter with Grams; Enzo searches for a woman he loved decades ago; Bonnie learns that Jeremy is working with Liv; Matt has a terrifying encounter with inhabitants of the Other Side.
Interestingly enough, subconscious Elena dreams of Stefan, back in a time when the two of them didn’t know each other ? and get this, in this alternate universe, her parents are still alive as well. Talk about fantasyland. But she’s convinced these dreams are more than just her imagination.
Enzo and Damon talked about their respective lady problems over a game of pool at Salvatore Mansion, and then we cut back to Elena, who had a vision of Stefan walking her home after a movie she couldn’t concentrate on watching. It’d been their first date, and they wanted to see each other again. It was nice to see Elena’s house one last time — and a surprise when Elena said that it was her father who’d turned on the porch lights to put an end to the perfectly-framed first kiss.
Caroline’s voice snapped Elena out of the vision, and then Miss Forbes used said voice to tell Elena that she was probably just fantasizing about Stefan because she’d broken up with Damon. But then Stefan called Caroline to tell her about his vision, and they realized something was really going on.
Surviving Jack Episode 4 “Rhythm is a Dancer” ? It’s homecoming night, but Frankie is bummed that his crush, Heather (guest star Lili Reinhart), is promised to another date and Rachel is protesting the school’s “No Grinding” policy. Meanwhile, with the kids out of the house, Jack and Joanne (Rachael Harris) are planning a passionate night to themselves in the all-new “Rhythm is a Dancer” episode of SURVIVING JACK airing Thursday, April 17 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Father knows best?well, sort of. SURVIVING JACK is a new single-camera comedy based on best-selling author Justin Halpern’s autobiographical book, “I Suck at Girls.” Set in 1990s Southern California, the ensemble series is about a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before “coming of age” was something you could Google.
JACK DUNLEVY (Emmy Award nominee Christopher Meloni, “True Blood” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), ex-military and an oncologist, is a no-bull kind of guy. He sees little, if any, need to sugar-coat the truth. Up to this point, Jack’s been the parent who’s left for work early, come home late, eaten the big piece of chicken, yelled at his kids and gone to bed.
But after years of deftly raising and running the family, his wife, JOANNE, is going back to law school, leaving Jack as a full-time parent for the very first time. Jack’s teenage son, FRANKIE (Connor Buckley, “Deception”), is just starting his freshman year in high school. Lanky, quick-witted, self-deprecating and not entirely sure of himself, all Frankie wants to do is fly under the radar. But over the summer, he grew 10 inches, threw a no-hitter against a rival team and started to attract girls ? all of which put him in some awkward situations ? especially when the only base he’s ever been to is on the field. Fortunately, no matter how embarrassing the situations Frankie gets himself into are, Jack is there to pick up the pieces and lead his son to manhood?with the least gentle hand possible.
Portlandia‘s latest episode, “Late in Life Drug Use” features a number of returning guest stars, including Kyle MacLachlan, Jeff Goldblum and Vanessa Bayer, but they’re all upstaged by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, who channels his inner dudeness-with a twist.
Homme plays Carrie’s brother, also named Josh, who’s only recently come out to his family. He’s bringing new boyfriend Nick (Swardson) with him to Portland for a visit. Carrie and Fred look forward to home decorating tips and fashion advice from their house guests, but as soon as Josh and Nick arrive on their doorstep, it’s obvious that Carrie’s bro is a bro. And Nick is, too. They’re X-box playing slobs who met during a bar fight at an ESPN Zone. Forget about French press or espresso shots in the morning; they’re just fine with Jaeger bombs for breakfast.
The titular sketch about drug use takes us to one of Portlandia’s less prolific couples, well-meaning but overreaching parents Brendan and Michelle. After a guest at their dinner party tells them the story of a weekend drug experience (a disappointingly superfluous use of Jeff Goldblum), he plants the question in their heads of whether or not they’re too old to do drugs for the first time. They decide they’re not, and pour a lot of effort into making the most carefully planned unexpected event. (“I want to approach this like we would buy a car.”) As always, it’s reliably funny for Portlandia to walk through how much its residents overthink activities that are supposed to be fun and simple, and Brownstein gets good mileage out of trying to plan a drug experience around dentist trips and meetings.
One of the more creative and humorous sketches involves iris and bicycle boy Spike (who’s growing on us this season). They decide to eat at a Thai restaurant with a “Best of Portland 2013″ sticker on the door, bestowed by Bridgetown Weekly. The food’s inedible, and Spike and Iris decide-as the restaurant workers sneak out the door-to go to Bridgetown Weekly to lodge a complaint about their “awards.” At the alt-weekly’s offices, they’re greeted by the same staff, who try and convince the two that they’re legit and not just operating to give themselves good reviews.
After a first season with varying ratings, The Crazy Ones‘ future is up in the air. On the one hand, it wasn’t renewed with the pack of shows that were picked up already. On the other, we are getting an hour-long season finale- that must mean something, right?
The ratings for The Crazy Ones can’t be what CBS was expecting to get when they got Robin Williams to return to series regular television alongside David E. Kelley and Sarah Michelle Gellar. It was supposed to build up the ratings tentpole for the expanded comedy block on Thursdays. And yes, it had a huge opening. But it never could muster the same kind of ratings. It was on the steady decline all season long. It was one of the few shows CBS didn’t renew last month. It swapped time slots with the very old Two and a Half Men which has pulled in better ratings than it did.
And now, it is ending its first season a month before everything else so CBS can plug in Bad Teacher next week (but boy do those commercials make that show look terrible.) Which is all a roundabout way of saying that The Crazy Ones probably won’t be back next year. The odds aren’t dead. They are just leaning more to cancellation than renewal at this point.
“The Lighthouse” ? When a corporation wants to buy out Lewis, Roberts+Roberts, Gordon calls in the board to vote, and Simon’s ex-wife and Sydney’s mom has the final say. Brad Garrett returns as Gordon Lewis and Marilu Henner guest stars as Simon’s ex-wife and Sydney’s mother.
After Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and Finn’s (Thomas McDonell) tryst, she wants to get up but he wants to lie in bed all day. She tells him she wanted him to be her first and they kiss some more.
On the Ark, Chancellor Jaha (Isaiah Washington) tells Abby (Paige Turco) that Kane’s (Henry Ian Cusick) population reduction called Section 17 will begin. They will eliminate 320 people. Abby wants to wait to hear from Raven (Lindsey Morgan) on the Earth but Jaha’s not willing to take the risk.
Yet nothing we’d seen prior to this had been established between the two besides some early flirtation and bonding. If they had chalked it up to them getting together because of the extreme situation, but added in a requisite, “but maybe there’s something really there…”, it would have at least sold more than putting so much meaning on it so quickly. Especially since we knew Raven was on her way, just in time to make this situation much more of a clich? love triangle. It was unfortunate, and initially undercut the interesting element that was Raven’s arrival.
Technologically blind to what’s happening on the planet below them, the Ark’s leaders ? Clarke’s widowed mother, Abby; the Chancellor, Jaha; and his shadowy second in command, Kane ? are faced with difficult decisions about life, death and the continued existence of the human race. For the 100 young people on Earth, however, the alien planet they’ve never known is a mysterious realm that can be magical one moment and lethal the next. With the survival of the human race entirely in their hands, THE 100 must find a way to transcend their differences, unite and forge a new path on a wildly changed Earth that’s primitive, intense and teeming with the unknown.
There are so many levels of deception required in espionage when it comes down to it, the lies can almost be seen as truths in the end. You have to believe what you’re saying on some level to truly sell it, even if it’s a lie.
In The Americans Season 2 Episode 8 things got even more twisted as all of the Americans and Russians working on the various projects started to work so closely it’s almost as if they’re working on the same side without knowing it. It’s fascinating.
The sense of elation I felt at knowing this great show will be around a while longer (and hopefully live up to the “on our schedule for five years or more” vow of FX’s straight-shooting PR chief) comes in a nice contrast to “New Car,” an episode whose prevailing emotions are despair and frustration that other people don’t believe as deeply as you in the things that you think matter, and that even when they do, belief alone can’t prevent great tragedy.
Now Philip is disillusioned with both the cause and the country he lives in. Toward the end of the episode, he convinces Elizabeth not to kill a sanitation worker they kidnapped to gain access to the Contra training camps. Philip has always been the more compassionate one but, even for him, this decision seems reckless.
