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."
Once Michael discovers that Toby has returned, he is none too pleased, as evidenced by the multiple times he screams “oh God please no!” in his face. 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.
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.

In Middleton, Connecticut its pouring down rain, a man is driving with his son in the backseat. They get flagged down by a woman who claims that her car is having problems. The man calls a tow truck and offers to look under the hood for her. When he opens the hood he is bombarded by red and green flashes, he is startled out of his hypnotic state when the tow truck man taps on his shoulder. The man turns around to find that the woman, her car and his son are missing.
This episode is full of liars. The patient lies to the doctors. Taub lies to the patient. Wilson lies to House. Foreman lies to House. House lies to himself. In the end the only one not freed from his lies is House.The Patient
The episode begins as if it was entirely different show, a twilight version of The Sarah Connor Chronicles, where Cameron and Sarah wear pink Amish cotton gowns as they water steel cacti that quickly grow and envelope their young. Then we find out that its only Sarah's dream, thank God!
Arthur continues to wander the storyline like a ghost, helping Sylar empathize and recruit Elle, trying to convince Nathan and Tracy to help him with his master plans, and keeping Angela locked in a vision from which Matt Parkman is trying to save her. Hiro and Ando dink around as Hiro must contend with having his brains scrambled to ten year old status, Claire must help the now power-less Peter. Mohinder is also now officially a mad scientist working for Pinehearst, unsuccessfully testing out the formula on regular human subjects.
Edward and Henry’s complex interactions with his wife deepen as Henry must figure out why Angie lied to him about going to the dentist, and why she’s seeing a random man that Henry doesn’t know. They also transport a political candidate to an election in Kazakhstan so that democratic elections can be held.
Last episode was a tornado of guts and guilt…literally. Bill was forced into turning an innocent girl into a vampire. Jason’s vampire buddy was killed by his psycho girlfriend right before his eyes and Sookie was attacked and almost killed by the predator that we can only assumed killed her grandmother and the two other girls, Dawn and Mardette.
Schadenfreude is a noun meaning satisfaction or pleasure felt at someone else's misfortune. Every time you watch TMZ, or a dumb kid on the internet falling off his skateboard, or your jerk of a boss getting subpoenaed for sexual harrassment–that little smirk you get in all of those situations qualifies for that very German word.
Michael travels to the land of Can-a-DA on a business trip and nearly hooks up with an exotic Canadian concierge, while Oscar and Andy bond over drinks at the bar. Back in Scranton, some Jim/Pam trouble starts to brew once Pam realizes she’s failed one of her classes, and Ryan tries to win back Kelly.A Foreign Land
It’s a wonderful day in Korea Town. People are laughing, drinking, smiles all around! And then people get shot. Happiness turns to panic as bystanders flee from gunfire. A young boy donning blue sunglasses and blood splatters stands out from the crowd.

If you ever get a Venus fly trap in your body, you will live.
Henry Spivey has to once more contend with how much better in bed his other half is (wow, the drama), while he realizes his near nymphomaniac therapist is a secret agent as well and has to protect his secret from the agency. Trouble brews at home too, as Henry discovers his son may have more in common with Edward than with him. Plus, the P.I. Raymond’s wife hired digs deeper and threatens Raymond’s identity.
This episode should have been called flashbacks, because that’s where we spend more than ninety percent of our time – in the past, as Hiro navigates the visions given to him by the African dude’s paste. It’s actually not that bad – there’s a lot of stuff with the Petrellis, we get more backstory on Sylar, and more of the interplay between Linderman and Arthur is revealed. Most everything takes place between a year and eighteen months ago.
"You're Not Stupid John, But Sometimes You Do Stupid Things" should have been the title of the episode. I sometimes forget that he's a sixteen year old boy because we are constantly reminded that he's the savior of mankind but, when he does something immature and "you have got to be kidding me "worthy, it all seems to come rushing back to me.
With only two episodes left, things just seem to get more complicated for Sookie and the people in her life. I honestly can’t figure out how they are going to end this first season…probably with some lame cliffhanger that will piss everyone off.
Sometimes, every man has to swallow his pride like so many bitter and stale pumpkin beers left as wounded soldiers after a Halloween party. You probably did that last weekend, but at least you didn't have to deal with Seth Green biting at your ankles while you did it.
Tranquilizers, Freaky Friday, Olympic Tetherball, and Oprah Winfrey. Liz tells Jack that she has to fly to Chicago for jury duty.

This is fortunate for him because he has found himself in the middle of an Olympic controversy worse than doping.

The Pam/Jim thing continues as they get the latest technological device to stay in touch even longer, and Andy is on the trail of the perfect wedding location.
Obama wins the election and is revealed to have been co-conspiring with McCain to win it for ten years to make the ultimate heist: the Hope Diamond. Also, a South Park resident has secrets nobody would suspect.
Agent Ellison should have never answered his door because maybe then he wouldn’t have had the worst day ever. He comes face to face with his clone in the form of a terminator, only then to witness Cromartie, in a sick twist of good timing, kill the terminator with a quick stab from his sword shaped hand.
Pick any old cliché about fire (trial by fire, out of the frying pan and into the fire, etc.), and you could apply it directly to Vince's situation as he rides out in a production truck to the dry, sweltering hills of his first movie set since Medellin.
The season 3 opener begins with Liz strolling to work when she is pleasantly surprised to see Jack pulling up next to her in a limo. When he is asked by Liz how he managed to get out of his government job Jack responds vaguely that he's not at liberty to say due to it's classified natu
