Jam-packed with emotions, embraces and tears while still making time for lighthearted moments, this week's episode of "Parenthood," titled "The M Word," was easily the best of the season.
It's Halloween at Grey-Sloan and there are zombies, maggots, little girls getting almost scared to death and the ghost of Heather Brooks to make this episode feel, in April's words, completely random, and not at all supernatural.
"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.
It's pretty much an all-out war in New Orleans. At the very least there's a big one brewing, and this week's episode pits multiple warring factions against each other: Fiona vs. Delia, Fiona vs. The Council, Fiona vs. Marie (OK, so it's mostly everyone against Fiona), and the voodoo witches vs. the Robichaux witches.
For the second Knockout rounds, these contestants have just one song standing between them and the live shows. Everybody wants it. Bad.
I don't mean to brag, but I've liked sloths since before it was cool. Remember the teacup pig craze of 2009? I don't, because I was busy liking sloths.
The touching moments that made "HIMYM" so strong are seriously lacking in this last season. Perhaps we need the "Mother's" touch, or just for the gang to all get back together. But maybe, we just need to tie up these loose end plot lines.
Knockouts! Where the Battle rounds are all about showing up a duet partner; in the Knockouts, a singer can only sink themselves.
Finally, our beloved Showtime series has delivered an outstanding episode resembling what hooked us all in the first season.
So many crises, such little time.
"The Good Wife" has never been better. Everything literally hits the fan in "Hitting The Fan," a riveting hour of TV that I wished could have lasted forever. This was not only one of the best episodes of "The Good Wife," but one of the best episodes of TV.
"Grey's Anatomy" is to television what Pinterest is to the Internet. It's lines from this episode, like "Make this year count!" or "Invest in your brand!" and "Let it go!" that make me think of the sort of JPGs with paisley backgrounds and serif fonts my mother (whom I adore) attaches to her emails.
This week "Parenthood" brought the drama. Marriage problems, work woes, family struggles -- the episode had it all. As per usual, emotions got real and plenty of tears happened.
"October Surprise" was a fun storyline, although, like the politician it portrayed, some of the details were sketchy. I suppose it's hard to fictionalize a true story that is itself totally unbelievable.
When we last left Mystic Falls, Stefan had a very inconvenient case of amnesia thanks to the 2,000 year witch, Qetsiyah.
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.
