TUESDAY TV PREVIEW

Another Tuesday of pretty random selections; Snoop Dogg talking 'heart' (as in the kind Rudy Ruettiger had) with some NFL superstars, the beginning and end of New York City as we know it, and Dave Mordal shooting fruitcakes into the air. Tomorrow, randomness gives way for one of the (if not the) best show on TV to return. Your preview after the break.

House Recap: The Social Contract
Monday, March 9 by

You know there is a House M.D. soundtrack in South Africa? And Hugh Laurie sings on it? That is boss. This week’s episode of House starts at a celebration for an author. His book of short stories is being published. After the author gives a speech thanking the audience, he sits back at his table. He is immediately berated with insults by someone sitting at the table. However, after every insult the man apologizes. After a while, the insulting-man’s nose starts to bleed and he passes out. We have our patient. The team is assembled in House’s office, discussing the case of this new patient. They discuss a historical case of a man who was impaled in the head with a railroad spike.  The man was argumentative and hostile after the accident.

Juma's goons then drag away the President.Bauer whispers to Buchanan. Apparently there's an oxygen feed coming from the safe room, and if sparked, could blow away some Juma's men and give some time to get the President out."I'll read your statement," Taylor says, "but you have to release some hostages first." Juma surprisingly complies, takes one of the hostages, brings him to his feet and then caps him right in the head. Shit! Juma then demands the President do the statement. "The world is waiting Madame President."A live feed straight to internet, broadcasts Taylor's statement. She says that America's at fault, that it's a criminal act of opression from a power hungry country, etc.

TELE-VISIONS: KALEY CUOCO
Monday, March 9 by

Over the past couple seasons, Monday night on CBS has officially become the most ridiculous night on television, thanks to Ms. Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on The Big Bang Theory. My guess is that Penny came about late in the show's development stages, in a meeting between the writers and network execs.  My guess is, it went down a little something like this:

The Big Bang Theory

Leonard and Sheldon are brilliant physicists, the kind of "beautiful minds" that understand how the universe works. But none of that genius helps them interact with people, especially women. All this begins to change when a free-spirited beauty named Penny moves in next door. Sheldon, Leonard's roommate, is quite content spending his nights playing Klingon Boggle with their socially dysfunctional friends, fellow CalTech scientists Wolowitz and Koothrappali. However, Leonard sees in Penny a whole new universe of possibilities… including love.Network: CBSAirs: 8/7c

FNL Recap: New York, New York
Monday, March 9 by

Welcome back to Dillon, Panther fans. The roller coaster that is Friday Night Lights ebbed and flowed last week as well, and we may have said some teary goodbyes to some characters while getting better introductions to others. Mac McGill collapsed on the field during practice, and has been laid up in a hospital bed ever since. Coach Taylor reluctantly hired Wade Aikman, JD’s personal quarterback coach, to be his interim Offensive Coordinator. If that weren’t enough for him to chew, Tami found her dream home and put that on his plate. Cash left for the Rodeo circuit, and he and Tyra had a falling out over his reluctance to remain faithful over the stretch. Matt became frustrated with his lack of playing time and the receivers’ inability to run the correct routes, and he decided to lobby Coach to let him tryout as a receiver. Jason and Riggins went to New York to pay Wendell’s agent a visit and perhaps get Jason’s foot in the door for that job as well. Things didn’t always go to plan, just like life, and each character was judged not by the original plan, but how they responded to adversity.

Terminator:TSCC Recap: Ourselves Alone
Monday, March 9 by

Jesse buys a gun for protection at a fast food restaurant after he and Walter witness Tuco accidentally murder one of his lackeys. Jesse figures that Tuco will probably be coming for them to tie up all the lose ends. So Jesse and Walter contemplate murdering Tuco during an upcoming drug deal. Hank views the video from a robbery that Walter and Jesse committed at the end of last season. Hank theorizes that they’re some new big players in town and that they should be careful not to be caught by rival dealers first. Little does Hank know that Walter is the burglar from the video.

BSG Recap: Islanded in a Stream of Stars
Sunday, March 8 by

The producers of the original Battlestar Galactica had a plan.  In the late 1970s, it wasn’t uncommon for a male lead in a TV series to have a major pop career.  So when they found out early on that the Bee Gees – the biggest recording act in the known universe – were fans of their show, they reached out.  The plan was this:  the Bee Gees would write a thumping disco tune; Dirk Benedict would sing it; coke and hookers and cash to every AM station imaginable and voila! a world-wide smash that would guarantee a second season of Galactica.That song was called “Islanded in a Stream of Stars.”   I’ll be giving you a taste of the words throughout this recap.  For example:Islanded in a stream of starsDeath and betrayal is what we areTrust and love have gone so farIslanded in a stream of stars

After a spectacular career flame-out, Kenny came home to Shelby County, NC and picked up a job as a substitute gym teacher (mostly so his brother Dustin would stop threatening to kick him out). He's spent every moment since then cashing in the last of his dying fame while plotting his inevitable comeback… one beer at a time." — HBO Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.  Starring Danny McBride ('Pineapple Express'), Katy Mixon ('Four Christmases'), John Hawkes ('Deadwood') and a host of other talented comedians (including, on occasion, Mr. Ferrell), 'Eastbound & Down' was created by McBride along with two friends from film school: Jody Hill and Ben Best (the co-writer/director and co-writer of The Foot Fist Way, respectively).
