It was a weird holiday season. If you have not been glued to the internet, rest assured that you have not missed much, other than a little lawsuit, some new trailers, and this picture from the cover of a 1976 edition of Sesame Street Magazine. Here is a wrap-up of some of what has happened while a lot of you were on extended vacation. Have a good friday, enjoy the weekend, and get ready to f'ing work your tits off come monday. We have an economy to fix, bro.
Diablo Cody's first foray into the world of TV is set to debut in three weeks. But Showtime has it on their website for free HERE. The VIP password is "Tara." Early reports suggest that the girl that plays Kate is super hot, so I did a little research. And to be honest, I think she is good looking but HOT might be a little bit of a stretch. You decide. Pictures after the jump.
Thursdays are usually a big night for the TV. But what with the holidays and all, the nets are going with some tried and trusted content while shows take a break. And by tried and trusted I am referring to Total Recall. We also recommend Paul F. Thompkins on Conan (according to his Twitter feed the shoot went well). All that and more in tonight's TV lineup.
We're a TV site, but we don't really cover network news. There are just too many opportunities to skewer the constant flow of absurdity– the unending waterfalls of crap would just distract us from the other duties of Screenjunkies. But I just could not resist this amazing front page story that showed up on CNN this morning: Really? There's no good way to tell a kid they have cancer? I'd imagine there are some ways that are worse than others, such as: – Billy, you have cancer, and it's because you masturbate too much. – Billy, you have cancer and that's why mommy and daddy are getting a divorce. – Billy, you have cancer. Also, there is no Santa Claus. – Billy, isn't this roller coaster fun? Well enjoy it now because in three months you'll be so weak from 3 rounds of chemo you wont be able to lift an X-Box controller. As always CNN, thanks for the hard hitting news. Now lets all watch this video. Wait till they spray the associate producer with cologne. Listen for his name.
Sylar traps Claire, Noah, Meredith and Angela inside Primatech and Level 5 apparently to just play Jigsaw with them, some more sibling rivalry ensues as Peter and Nathan clash on their views of how the powers should be handled, and Ando’s new power helps Daphne, Hiro, and Matt continue their quest to find and destroy the formula. Here's our recap of last night's Heroes.
I have to admit I had high expectations coming into the mid-season finale. Every week there's a bomb explosion, gun fire and robot to robot combat, so what could they possibly do this week to make it stand out and leave me in anticipation for the hiatus to be over.
Edward sees hope as he realizes he may have found a way to make Henry quit popping up at inconvenient times during missions, Raymond’s life gets Tom in trouble with his wife (again), and a terrorist has stolen a nuclear warhead and is intending to use it in a school. Peep our recap of My Own Worst Enemy.
Phyllis shows a devilish side of herself we haven't seen before – she's holding her knowledge of Dwight and Angela’s torrid affair over the former party planning committee’s head in order to boss her around and plan her own parties, while Meredith’s hair catches on fire in the conference room and Dwight runs a lucrative black market from his desk on the hot toy of the season.
How many empty warehouses are there in California? Bllions apparently. It amazes me how Sarah always seems to find one. Is there some sort of fan forum message board that has a directory? It boggles my mind. Here's your recappage, Junkie.
OK, so I type in some stuff, and then I type in some more stuff, and then I add a page break.
Angie and Henry start to talk about having another kid (and, I suppose by inference, Edward does too), but neither half of the personality is too excited about the idea. Edward and Raymond must also capture a corrupt military leader from the Congo and deliver him to justice at the International Court in the Hague, but they discover a hostage in the process, who claims to once have worked for Edward's company.
Heroes is heating up! In this episode Claire follows her baby self around, intent on keeping the catalyst from being delivered to her own body, Sylar goes power-hungry and embarks on another killing spree, Nathan starts to work with Pinehearst on building an army for the coming war, and Hiro gets to talk to his mom and find out deeper secrets concerning the catalyst. Read more for full coverage.
Oscar discovers a $4300 surplus in the budget and Michael must decide between a new copier and new chairs for the entire office. Of course, he can’t make any decisions by himself, so it takes all day. Meanwhile, Jim and Pam have a little bit of a fun tiff over the copier/chair debate, and Angela, Andy, and Dwight tour Schrute farms in preparation for the wedding.
I should have known that a bank robbery on Fringe would never be as simple as guns and a get away car. A team of men with Loeb (the FBI mole who was introduced" In Which We Meet Mr. Jones") as the leader, are attired in rubber suits and carry enough equipment with them to fill a small room, break into the Philadelphia Mutual Savings Bank.
She never sleeps, so what does she do at night? Cameron's surprising, secret life is revealed. Also, history is forever changed when a Terminator is sent back to the wrong time.
Edward continues to try to figure out, without the agency knowing where he is of course, who really killed his parents and where they’re hiding, Henry has to deal with a rather large purchase his son has just made, and Tom’s wife is the victim of theft and assault, so Raymond goes undercover as Tom to investigate.
The eclipse still baffles the likes of Mohinder and Arthur, Peter and Nathan help the Haitian overthrow his brother’s corrupt rule in middle of the jungle, Elle and Sylar struggle with what the loss of their powers means to their identities, the Bennett family has to deal with some rather traumatic incidents taking place, and Hiro, Ando, Daphne, and Parkman try to figure out the next step in their quest to save the world.
A Massive Dynamic employee is so convinced he is being attacked by butterflies that he jumps out of a window to escape them, and the team is called in to investigate. Although Olivia's unexplained interaction with Agent Scott leads to breaks in the case, she is so desperate to rid her consciousness of him that she demands to go back into the tank. Meanwhile, the gig is up for Peter when a former friend-and some current foes-find out he's back in Boston.
Elle changes Sylar back into a bad guy, Noah trains Claire so that she can be a fighter and not merely a bystander, and everyone's powers are disabled as the eclipse hoers overhead.
Henry discovers that Edward is willing to sell national security secrets to find the truth about how his parents died, and the Edward/Henry feud continues as Henry tries to use this new treacherous secret against the other side of his identity.
I have no clue how the writers over at HBO pulled off a season finale, but somehow they did and boy did they wrap up a lot of story lines.
Sarah's obsession with the three dots leads her to a company that she believes may have Andy Goode's Turk. Meanwhile, Jesse's plans complicate things even further, and Weaver introduces Ellison to someone very important.
Five seasons of success and living the dream have turned into bitterness, uncertainty, and one really bad pun: Vince returns to Queens to see if home is where the part is. When the chips are down, Vince has a tendency to fall apart, and part of me expected that to happen in the worst way. It happens in almost every season, and it certainly happened again in this one. Those meltdowns are what give the show its namesake; as much as Vinnie rolls with ease into fame and hot women, he'd be nothing but another whiny ass star witout his Entourage to get him through the toughest times.
On tonight's episode of 30 Rock we find Liz and Jack attending an exclusive dinner party hosted by Gavin Volure, the ex-CEO of a company called Sunsteam. Jack describes Gavin as god like, but now a reclusive. After introducing himself to Jack and Liz they are surprised to see that the host of the party Jack has been in awe about is actually the person playing piano behind them. Gavin Volure (played by Steve Martin) informs his newly arrived guests that, "because of his extreme case of agoraphobia and debilitating wealth he is forced to bring the world to him."

So while he and Dwight try and come up with ways to frame him, Pam must deal with a dirty microwave and Jim has to figure out how to tell Pam about a real estate purchase he just made.
Thursdays are basically stay at home and watch TV nights. Without even having to move a muscle you have an hour and a half of solid comedy gold. Here’s a quick breakdown.
One of the funniest and most informative men on TV, Stephen Colbert has created a show that is consistently hilarious and that brilliantly compliments the stylings of his pundit compadre Jon Stewart. Smart and blaringly American, Colbert keeps you laughing while disecting the news and intimidating guests on the show with his cocksure, unrelenting attitude.
Butters discovers a terrible secret lurking in the heart of South Park Elementary: there are vampires, and he even becomes so desperate as to ask them to let him join. The Goths also become “so seriously pissed off” that preppy kids are taking over their Goth look that they decide to do something about it.
