Jake In Progress: "Pilot" & "Stand By Your Man"

Episodes 101 & 102 - Believe it or not, this is a funny show with potential. John Stamos is your standard likable rogue of a hottie guy. A mover and shaker PR agent, Jake is trying to quit his womanizing ways and find a more lasting relationship. The interesting thing is, he's not doing this to woo any particular woman, as has been tried in the past. He seems honestly ready to change his life....

Battlestar Galactica, Ep. 110: "The Hand of God"

Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) is growing up. Watching her plan the attack on the fuel mine was great to see. She's been so frightened, hiding behind her bravado, it's nice to see her take some major responsibility. The "double decoy" plan was pretty cool, and the standard trick of cutting away to another plot line when the "secret plan" is discussed never fails. However, on a...

Leno Get License To Call Jacko A Wacko

According to Saturday's New York Times (free registration required),  Jay Leno now has license to make fun of Michael Jackson during his trial on child molestation charges, as long as the "comedian" doesn't mention specific areas of the case on which he might be called to testify. So this is a great victory for the first amendment, right? Well yes, it is. But can we all sit back at...

MI-5, S3, Ep. 9: "Frequently Asked Questions"

MI-5 is, bar none, the greatest spy show in the history of television. Think I'm joking? I dare you to go out and rent the first season and tell me it's crap. No. Scrap that. Buy it. Look at the Google Ad Words on this page, click on them and buy the MI-5 discs. If you don't like them, I'll wash your car. I'll windex the top of your kitchen cabinets and clean out your vegetable bins that haven't...

Gilmore Girls: "Pulp Friction" or "Too See Or Not To See (Other People)"

This series is one of the most intelligent and quirky (yet not cloying, go figure) series on TV and it keeps getting better. Rory's growing up and that brings a little more of an obvious sexual element to the show, although I am willing to bet there are those of you out there who while admitting to crushing on Rory (Alexis Bledel) are starting to feel a little Luke-like protectiveness! This...

Battlestar Galactica, Episode 9: Tigh Me Up, Tigh Me Down

WARNING: Spoiler's Ahead!!This episode runs the gamut from fantastic whimsy and brilliance (Tigh's drunken whore of a wife, Starbuck literally catching Baltar with his pants down, a Cylon detector that doubles as a paperweight) to really silly red herrings (Adama a Cylon? Give me a break!). It's also nice to see Starbuck handling some responsibilities and someone other than the Chief getting a...

Gilmore Girls - All Is Right In Stars Hollow

 For those of you who haven't seen the March 1st episode of Gilmore Girls, too bad, it's been like a week already! This isn't as much of a recap as it is a 130 word exhale of relief. All is right with the world. Well, the TV world, anyway. Sure, Lane and Zach had a romantic dinner and Lane realized that she didn't want to have sex until she was married (Zach, dude! Sorry, mon.) and Sookie...
