This week's episode of "Parenthood" struck a balance between the supportive Bravermans and the dysfunctional Bravermans. While there were obviously hugs and emotional talks a plenty, there may have been even more angry silences and tension-filled sighs.
For a show of this age and this magnitude to be this creative and this clever in its seventh season is a remarkable feat. "The Big Bang Theory" is typically far from subtle, and does on occasion wring out its characters for all their worthy, "The Itchy Brain Simulation" proved that it can mine as much humor from inverting its characters as it does in playing them straight.
The last thing we need on "American Horror Story: Coven" is another character, but our non-wish (as is usually the case) is Ryan Murphy's command.
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.
It's "The Next Week" on "The Good Wife" and boy is there a lot of stuff going on. Betrayal, depositions, murder charges and Internet hacking all made up the fast-paced episode.
The show's writers have returned to the white-knuckle tumble of interrogations and cat-and-mouse games that we've been waiting for all along. In other words, we're back to the fun stuff.
Big reveal this week on The Vampire Diaries: They found the anchor, and in one episode, no less. If only the search for the cure had been so speedy.
In an old-school sweeps move, "Big Bang" pulled a bit of stunt casting and brought back TV legend Bob Newhart to reprise his role as the gangs' belove...
You knew how innocent tonight's music coach was by how earnestly he denied the charges, right? He just couldn't believe anyone would accuse him of that. Don't be fooled. In real life, predators are excellent liars. I think they even convince themselves.
While last week we got fake Weinergate, this week we get fake "American Idol."
The overarching theme in tonight's episode is the relationship (or lack thereof) between mothers and daughters. What makes a good mother? Is it ever too late to mend fences? On 'AHS,' it might be.
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.
There was no way "The Good Wife" could have kept up the breakneck pace of last weeks' phenomenal "Hitting The Fan," and "The Next Day" gave us something a little different.

Whelp, it's official ... this is officially one of the most troublesome seasons of "SNL" in recent history, even though it has nothing to do with the quality of the show. (Not that the quality has been great, but it's been OK considering all of the cast changes.)
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 5, Episode 5 of The CW's "The Vampire Diaries," titled "Monster's Ball." Previously on "The Vampire...
