The search for identity, occurring in the context of a contemporary ethos of rugged individualism, collectively carried to extreme, even unto selfishness and narcissism, is an obsession in our time.
It's fitting that an episode of "Supernatural" so devoted to helping a tired old man face reality also helped two of our characters come to terms with their own sense of purpose.
Ah, the 'tell all' episode -- one of the finest displays of fake apologies and insincere compliments, all in front of an estrogen-infused studio audience.
"The Good Wife" introduced the world to Therese Dodd, one very obnoxious comedienne in "Anatomy of a Joke." Christina Ricci turned in a fine performance as Therese, but there was more slight story progress than interesting material.
Ah, fantasy dates. Where couples are placed in the most unrealistic, extravagant locales, in order to come down to earth and get the most clarity in these final oh-so-important moments. Go figure.
How are we supposed to suspend our disbelief over the potential success rate and sanctity of these relationships when it is beyond preposterous that hometown dates are taking place on episode five? I mean we already know that ultimately, this relationship will fail. But at least by the end of previous seasons, we had hope.
In this week's episode, Emily is forced to acknowledge the consequesnces of her obsession with getting even. Sure, Emily's every fiber is devoted to revenge, but at what cost?

But the manner of his death gave him a last shred of dignity and nobility in a world running shot of both of those things.
Cheerleading, tears, and a melodramatic finale -- no, this isn't "Bring It On 3: All Or Nothing," it's the latest installment of "America's Next Top Model!"
We know that the delightfully adorable Olate Dogs are headed for a show in Las Vegas, but I'll be sorely disappointed if runners up Tom Cotter and William Close don't gain welcome career breaks due to their time on America's Got Talent as well.
It's finally here -- the America's Got Talent finals. It's a refreshingly eclectic collection of acts heading into the last round of competition. Sha...
The final rounds of America's Got Talent are just around the corner and I was totally bummed to say goodbye to some of my personal favorites during last week's eliminations, but the show must go on, right?
With performances by "the world's youngest rock band," Haunted by Heroes, Dee Snider, magician Nate Burton, and Train, America's Got Talent wrapped up the semifinal rounds with the final three contestants gearing up for the performance of their lives.
