Who's Going to Join Crystal in the 'Idol' Finale?

We're soon going to be down to the final three contestants on 'American Idol,' so this is crunch time. Barring any complete phone line meltdown, the finale is going to be Crystal and... somebody else. But the question is, "who should that somebody else be?" Along with Jane Boursaw, I've been covering 'Idol' for TV Squad all season. In my recaps, I've made no bones about the fact that I'm a hu...

'Castle' - 'Overkill' Recap

(S02E23) As much as I adore Nathan Fillion and Rick Castle, I'm having a hard time feeling sorry for him. He's been around Beckett day in and day out, and hasn't made his move. Eventually, she's going to find a hot robbery detective to fool around with. That's just science. Castle can bust out the hurt puppy-dog eyes as much as he wants, but he should take a page from his own book and make a mov...

'The Big Bang Theory' - 'The Plimpton Stimulation' Recap

(S03E21) Judy Greer! I actually had no idea that she was guest-starring on this week's episode as Dr. Elizabeth Plimpton, but I was so happy to see her. From her turn on 'Arrested Development' to her recent guest-stint on 'Modern Family,' she makes every show she's on even funnier. This was no exception. I loved her role as the sex-crazed scientist. My favorite part though, was not the giant orgy ...

Design the Album Cover for Mouse Rat, the 'Parks and Rec' House Band

If I were April on 'Parks and Recreation' and I wanted to step up my game a little bit to get Andy to notice me, I would totally offer to design his album cover. Not only would it display how good of an artist I am, but it would show him how much I'm into his band -- and for a guy like Andy, I would imagine that that would go a pretty long way. If you want to win the affection of a fictional chara...

'Parks and Recreation' - 'Telethon' Recap

Well, I'm certainly thankful for the fact that the Diabetes telethon had CG titles, because I spent the first half of this episode thinking that everyone was talking about some basketball player ironically named "shrimp." Instead, it was Detlef Schrempf, former Indiana Pacer who really did guest star on two episodes of the German soap opera, 'Gute Zeiten Schlechte Zeiten.' Fun fact: Tom Haverfo...

'American Idol' - 'Five Finalists Compete' Recap

You guys, I love Sinatra and I love Harry Connick Jr., so I'm super-excited about this episode. I'm most interested in seeing what Crystal does with the theme; not only because she's my favorite, but because she's the one furthest away stylistically from this type of music. She's either going to flounder or knock it out of the park -- I really can't see her just handing in a so-so performance. ...

'Parks and Recreation' - '94 Meetings' Recap

Thank you, 'Parks and Recreation,' for finally remembering that Leslie was in love with Mark. I haven't been shy when it comes to my dislike of Mark and Anne's relationship, but the thing that bugged me the most is the fact that after being in love with this guy for something like six years, she's suddenly over him. Not only is she over him, but she has no problem with her best friend dating him -...

'American Idol' - 'One of Six Eliminated' Recap

Here's my deal: We need to have a Crystal/Casey finale, and Siobhan needs to go tonight. While the judges loved her, my ears told me that she sounded like a cat being mauled to death last night. I honestly do not understand the praise that is being heaped upon her. I'd be just as happy if Aaron the wedding singer left, but even I can admit that he hasn't had a bad performance in several weeks. ...

'American Idol' - 'Seven Finalists Compete' Recap

This season has actually gone by pretty quickly for me. Top 7? That's completely nuts, yet here we are. Plus, we get a bitchin' mentor this week: Alicia Keys. The theme this week is the nebulous, "songs of inspiration," which could either be completely ridiculous or pretty cool. Unfortunately, it's a little bit more of the former instead of the latter. I don't know what it is, but when left t...

'American Idol' - 'Two of 9 Voted Off' Recap

After Big Mike's dramatic save last week, this show is being set up to be super-intense. Not only have the judges used their only save, but as the title indicates, two people are going home. But before that, we need a lot of filler. We have performances by Brooke White and Adam Lambert, which wow -- I enjoyed Brooke when she was on the show, but I can honestly say I haven't thought of her since....
