"Whatever it takes, I want that sonuvabitch found!"Dubaku visits his girl Marika at her diner, and he reveals that he's an illegal who needs to get the hell out of dodge. He tells her that they have tickets ready to go, and that Marika's sister will join them in a few days. Dubaku asks, "say you'll come…"–"…I'll get my things."

Slammin’ Sammy Meade here welcoming you back to another week of Panther football and Friday Night Lights. This was a tremendously eventful installment, with several setups for plot twists; it’s about as easy to read this show as trying to pick up a Smash Williams counter. There was good news and bad news on all fronts. Matt Saracen was replaced at quarterback, and he almost quit the team. Jason Street became a new father, and he, the Riggins brothers, and Herc decided to get into the real business by flipping Buddy Garrity’s house. And Tyra walked a slippery slope with her new cowboy boyfriend. There are many ways in which the writers could take this season, and each direction looks just as exciting as the others.
All of this has been confusing before, and all of this will be confusing again.Instead of the previouslies, we begin with yet another new prologue, and as is apropos for this show, it’s all cycling back to the beginning. The question is, as you’ll see, “what, exactly is the beginning?” Weirdly enough, I actually think that we find out.It's the familiar white lettering on the black background:THIS HAS ALL HAPPENED BEFOREAND IT WILL HAPPEN AGAINA shot of Earth.

With a bullet lodged in the flesh beside her femoral artery, a deluded Sarah Connor struggles to live. Kyle Reese is present as a ghost in her delirium, urging her to push on. John anxiously awaits news regarding his girlfriend's recovery, and Derek starts some fires in an attempt to cover Sarah's tracks. G.S.W. This episode begins with a wounded Sarah Connor waking in a hospital bed. She looks up and sees a ghost: the long-dead father of her son. "On your feet," Kyle Reese commands. After inspecting her Gun-Shot Wound, Sarah pulls the IV-tube from her arm, tries to stand, and falters. Kyle moves in, puts out his hand, and utters the words that have tingled the spines of Terminator fans for twenty years: "Come with me if you want to live." And because it is what we have come to expect of her, she takes Kyle's hand. It looks like she wants to live… After rendering hospital security unconscious, Sarah begins to limp through the hallways speaking to someone only she can see.
ooooOOOOOoooo Friday the 13th. Car crashes go up by 50%, hobos get extra brazen, and Jason might come around from any corner and hack you to pieces–staying indoors and watching TV is highly reccommended. Tonight's lineup is spectacular, and as I've stated before, is easily the most underrated night of TV. Especially with the return of Terminator:TSCC and the premiere of Dollhouse. If you have to go outside, keep that shifty eyed look going for any black cats and full moons. Your preview after the jump.
This special Valentine’s Day episode of 30 Rock begins with Liz Lemon and last week’s crush Dr. Baird bumping into each other in the hall. They discuss when they should meet again for their first official ‘date’. Liz suggests Saturday and Dr. Baird agrees, only after announcing that Saturday is Valentine’s Day. Jack and Elisa sit on Jack’s couch and feed McFlurry's to each other. They liken each other to a Mcflurry: one of the tastiest desserts on the planet. Jack says the only better dessert is served at New York’s finest restaurant: Plunder. He informs Elisa that he has made a reservation for two at Plunder for Valentine’s Day. Elisa is disgusted and tells Jack that they must go to church on Valentine’s Day instead. Frank tells Kenneth that he has to take care of a blind woman for the day. She is a beautiful redhead and Kenneth immediately falls in love with her. He is at a loss for words.

What a night! Your preview after the jump.
"Me and Mr. Jones" should be Olivia's song of choice. It's pretty obvious that the evil teleporting Mr. Jones has an infatuation with her. Why else would he be drawing pictures of her in his German cell? We may think that he is crazy, but maybe Mr. Jone's obsession with Olivia is not just because she's blond and carries a gun….. It maybe because Olivia is an x-file herself. Here's the recappage and decide for yourself.

Episode 159: My Absence Elliot copes with J.D.'s absence from Sacred Heart while Turk tries to get everyone excited about the arrival of his second child. You Say Potato… While doing rounds, Cox tells the interns how to treat Mr. Fancone- a comatose patient- who he affectionately refers to as a 'potato'. He tells them the best thing to do is to smother him in sour cream, chives, and bacon bits. Put simply: Cox doesn't want to be bothered by patient's whose conditions are beyond his control. Round Two
An hour of Scrubs, where J.D. and Turk stage a comedy show with their interns, and then a deadly toxin is melting peoples faces off/killing them on an very very very special new episode of Fringe. Your preview after the jump.
Sketch comedy is kinda dead, and the millions of people who can upload unfunny videos to the internet are the ones who killed it. The Whitest Kids U'Know are one of the few troupes that still seem to be able to do something with the format. They moved to IFC last year and have been putting out solid content ever since. The show is only 15 minutes per episode, defiantly NSFW, and damn funny. New show tonight at 7. More vids at their IFC Site. Their first movie, Miss March is coming out March 13th.
MTV Brings four shows to the Sunday Night Slot, including The College Humor Show, Fantsy Factory, Nitro Circus, and How's Your News.
MTV has launched an attack on your Sunday Night attention span with four new shows aimed at the male demo. Bottom line: I’ve come to not really expect much from MTV, so I was pretty impressed with the lineup. The real gem in the bunch is Travis Pastrana’s Nitro Circus while the least entertaining is Rob Drydek’s Fantasy Factory. Either way it makes for a solid 2 hours of Sunday night, at least until Entourage comes back. Here’s the breakdown on each.
Most of the time is spent around the crash site, with Nathan narrating the whole thing to some listener who isn't revealed till the last few minutes of the episode. The Heroes gather and Parkman rushes off to save Daphen from visions his white-psyhic eyes gave him, snd Ando and Daphne meet up and rush off to save crashed heroes. And meanwhile, Sylar is still hunting for his daddy, and comes across a mother and a son whom he tortures pyschologically, before the son reveals a hidden power. It's a flawed, yet taut and fascinating Heroes, right after the jump.
The episode begins with some goons dragging out Henry Taylor from the trunk of a car. While that's going on, Dubaku is out and about in the public, listenning to President Taylor give a Press Conference over the TV. He walks in through a convenient store, and down into another, much seedier hideout, where he finds Taylor sitting in chair, gagged. "Does your wife love you? For your sake, I hope so."Matobo has been brought in secretly to White House to meet up with the President, along with Bauer and his crack team of ex-CTU'ers. The Prez is still continuing with her invasion of Sangala, "I wan't an explanation and I want it NOW." The Prez asks Bauer and his team. They warn her that there exists massive corruption within the system. FBI Agent Walker backs up Bauer and the team as well. Then Dubaku calls.
So things are a little hairy right now, what with the crumbling world econmoic order and all. Thankfully we have Obama to make everything ok. Didn't you see that South Park Episode? Unfortunately the Pres. is also replacing House tonight, but don't fret, 24 and Heroes are coming at you with new episodes. Your preview after the jump.
The siren call of the drumline, plastic on plastic, and the ref’s whistle brought us all back to Dillon, TX this week for another installment of Friday Night Lights. Coming off of a devastating loss to Arnette-Meade last week, our coaching staff reworked their strategy, and finally put an end to the—or maybe created more—tension between our starting quarterback, Matt Saracen, and his backup, JD McCoy. We have officially sent another alumnus to the next level, as Smash Williams was given a chance to play for the Texas A&M Aggies. Even though there were so many positive events this week, all was not well in Panther Nation, Tami gave in to Buddy and company regarding the jumbotron, Landry and Tyra’s amicable breakup finally fizzled, and Matt Saracen ran into troubles giving his grandmother her medicine and dealing with his own mother. This week’s episode did not create any new exceptional plot twists, but it did resolve some older ones, allowing us to get back to focusing on next week’s opponent.
Richard Hatch was pissed. He always loved playing Captain Apollo on the original Battlestar Galactica, and very much wanted to the sequel that he envisioned back onto TV screens. But instead, Ron Moore's "reimagined" Battlestar came out instead, and Hatch was critical of the entire enterprise. He came around, eventually, and was offered the role of Tom Zarek, Freedom Fighter. But I don't think that he's ever fully let his anger go, and, in fact, that anger has informed how he played Tom Zarek, who — except for a short bit on New Caprica — was never not kind of an asshole.
Frak, Football, and Fridays add up to make the most underrated day of the week on the TV. Both BSG and FNL have huge cult followings and there's a reason why: they're good shows. Get on the Friday three-letter abbreviated show train folks, you won't be dissapointed. Your Friday TV preview after the jump.

They are like star-struck frat boys. They invite him out for drinks after work. He agrees and the interns tell him to get ready to drink a whole ton of beer.

He bought Los Amantes Clandestinos and plans to kill off the Generalissimo. He wants Liz to write the new episode. Elisa fills Liz in on the horror that is the Generalissimo. Elisa says he has been stealing love letters from a poor Spanish girl and adhering to them in order to trick the girl into liking him.

Jack has written the script so the Generalissimo gets shot and killed. But when the scene is supposed to arrive, the Generalissimo avoids the bullet and drinks a potion that he says will cause him to live forever. The generalissimo apparently ignored Jack’s script and is taking control of the show. Jack goes to the set of Los Amantes Clandestinos and talks to the actor who plays the Generalissimo. The actor says he will not be killed off. Jack tries to reason with the actor and tells the actor he is doing all this because of a girl’s grandmother. The actor says he will not die, but he will change his character so that all old Mexican women will love him. Tracy and Kenneth try to come up with a way to get the new interns out of the studio. All this partying is killing Tracy.Liz tries to trick the doctor again.

However, right as her plan is about to take hold, the crazy man who lives with the doctor brings a dog to the door. The dog looks exactly like Liz’s fake dog that she lost. Liz has to pretend it is her dog. A hilarious montage ensues where the Generalissimo seduces grandmothers with cheap coffee and lottery tickets, and Liz seduces the doctor. The doctor and Liz are about to kiss but Liz’s fake dog is barking and ruins the moment. She puts the dog in the other room as the doctor takes two of Tracy’s roofies, thinking they were aspirin. Liz comes back into the room and the Dr. falls, knocking over Liz’s purse. All of his mail falls out and he realizes that Liz has been stalking him.
