Weeds: He Taught Me How To Drive By

(S03E07) Weeds apparently took a note from Californication's extraneous nudity, plentiful sex playbook. This episode was all about the humping as one arc ended and another began. As Conrad and Nancy's debt is laid to rest, Peter's body rises from the muck....

Cane -- An early look

Rum, sex and scandal? What's not to love? I'm betting the pitch meeting went something like this: "It's the Latino Godfather." "Can we get Jimmy Smits?" "Yes." "Who do I make the check out to?" What CBS has ended up with is a little less Godfather and a lot more Dallas, but it's still got TV heavyweight Jimmy Smits at its center. That may just be good enough to score CBS a hit....

Weeds: Bill Sussman

(S01E05) I bet you guys think critical thinking is whack. Well, it is. Why think when you could just watch The Secret? Some of Agrestic's residents must be watching The Secret. Celia got a brand new house. Doug got a golf membership. Sullivan got his way. Silas got a a new calling. And, Andy (aka Bill Sussman) got let off the hook. The only person not exercising the "laws of attraction" seems to...

Adam Finley: Adam's kooky lyric game

Today, Monday September 10, 2007, TV Squad is remembering blogger Adam Finley who passed away tragically late last week. All front page posts will be staff picks of Adam's writing through the years. Like most brilliant people before him, Adam was a Grade A goofball. His profound love for Adult Swim and smart comedy are a testament to that, but forget writing about other people's funny ha-ha...

Adam Finley: The Five: Forgotten on Sesame Street

Today, Monday September 10, 2007, TV Squad is remembering blogger Adam Finley who passed away tragically late last week. All front page posts will be staff picks of Adam's writing through the years. You may have forgotten them, but Adam didn't. Adam had something of a steel trap mind when it came to animation and all things Muppet-related. You were a sucker if you even tried to write up an...

Weeds: The Brick Dance

(S03E03) We learned many important things on Weeds tonight: 1. You can't make $12,500 off a brick. 2. The cock wants what it wants. 3. Fish have internal testicles. Weeds is like the anti-Entourage. Instead of tying everything up in a neat, happy little bow by the end of the episode (Kanye Ex Machina, anyone?), everything goes to pot. (Oh yeah, I'm punny.) Seriously, could things get any worse...

Weeds: Doing the Backstroke (season premiere)

(S03E01) Oh, Weeds, how I've missed you. I've missed your soft-hearted thugs and manchild stoners. I've missed your misguided children and far more misguided parents. Tonight's episode was pitch-perfect, and while we still don't know whether Peter is dead and whether Nancy will live, we know that the world will keep turning with or without the MILF-weed in it....

John from Cincinnati: His Visit: Day 9 (season finale)

(S01E10) We got three great things in what I suspect was the last episode of John from Cincinnati ever: 1. Dylan 2. The Zip is back. 3. Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Seriously though, to the three of us left watching this show, WTF?...

John from Cincinnati: His Visit: Day 8

(S01E09) Damn it. With Zippy out of the picture, I've got no one to talk to about this week's episode. Teddy? Bad Ass Teddy? Do either of you have any insight you want to share, or are you too busy getting ready for the annual Teddy Bear Picnic? If you're looking for a caterer, look no further than your own backyard. Ramon can grill up a slaughterhouse's worth of fatback in under an hour....

John from Cincinnati: His Visit: Day Seven

(S01E08) Zippy, Zippy, Zippy, can we talk? I'm hoping you can telepathically help me out here. You're the great "cruise director" after all. We've got two episodes left, and we're heading towards something big. Shaun is going to be "gone," Barry (and his buddy Teddy) are building a theater while David Milch yells mean things at them over "The Tennessee Waltz," Bill and Freddie have teamed up and...
