While every episode of Law and Order: SVU is pretty emotionally draining, this week cuts out all the bells and whistles -- no faux American Idol judges or fun cameos -- leaving only the raw story that unfortunately reaches beyond the realm of television.
While "The Lighthouse" gave the plot a giant leap forward, this week's "Platonish" takes us six months back in time, before Robin and Ted were engaged. We're at MacLaren's. We're in the gang's apartment. Everyone's got a fresh set of clothes. It feels a little bit like old times, but we're in for a few major twists.
Here in Part II, we speak with Executive Producers David and Scott Hillenbrand about their personal lives, what to expect next for Nickelodeon's "Deadtime Stories" and what the books and series writers, the Cascone sisters, have been doing all this time.
It's getting better, folks. After last week's dismal episode, "The Lighthouse" was a welcome step toward ending the series on a high note.
"It Must Be You" features the anticipated exposure of the Nashville elite and their role in the music industry. Headed to the polo match, Rayna tells Tandy that she feels out of place at "big hat events" and we soon see it's not just because she's typically down to earth.
The show is seeping into our culture and our lives in unexpected ways -- which means that it may have turned you without your being fully aware. Here are some telltale signs.
The music industry is an unforgiving world, filled with confusing vendettas, strategic love affairs and sometimes even #hashtags, but at least Rayna James can sing again.
And just like that pesky herpes flare-up that your friend claims she got from "sharing drinks in college," the reunion is back!
There's an old saying that goes "you can't get blood from a stone ... and you can't get a two-part reunion out of happiness and smiles."
I wasn't expecting another "Ozymandias," but the slightly mechanical "Felina" wasn't quite what I was expecting.
Annnd we're back at the aptly named Moxie Salon ("a force of character, determination or nerve") where Teresa is summoning all of hers to shut Penny down. "You wanted to destroy [Melissa], not me," Penny reiterates.
"Walt uses his drug fortune to resume manufacturing of the reliable and dependable Pontiac Aztec."
We open with Melissa and Joe in the bathroom, which is a fitting setting for all the sh-- they're talking. They've got a really bad taste in their mouths -- and this time, it's actually not from the self-tanner they ingest.
The man loved his family, and still does, but were they ever more important to him than trying to be top dog? No.
Often touted as "Inside the Actors Studio for songwriters," JLSS is in fact a totally unique enterprise, based around the concept that good music with meaningful lyrics will ultimately build a community.
Though Teresa obviously orchestrated a hot mess of rumors and lies, Penny says that it's all over now. "She asked me to squash it" she says seriously, as if this is her day job and she's handing in her final report.
