Mad Men Gets Jet Set
Monday, October 13 by

You know when you’re really into a girl when even the little post coital ditties she pens don’t turn you off.

Recap: The Office Hits a Playoff Slump
Friday, October 10 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 2 "Business Ethics" I almost feel bad calling this a bad episode, because it was still funnier than most other things on TV, but compared to the premiere from two weeks ago, "Business Ethics" is a bit of a drag. At least we got to see Dwight piss into a soda bottle. Michael and Holly:

Preview: “Testees” Premiere Is Mental
Thursday, October 9 by

FX hit the ball out of the park when it took a chance on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and they're hoping to recreate that offensive, indy magic with their new series Testees. I have seen the premiere and I can tell you that it's almost as funny as it is totally ridiculous.

Recap: South Park and the Crystal Skull
Thursday, October 9 by

Season 12, Episode 8 "The China Problem". The guys had a long summer vacation and they have clearly saved up some of their frustrations to fuel the fall premiere. Eric and Butters take on our former Olympic hosts, the Chinese, while Kyle, Stan and Kenny try to nail George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg for "raping" Indiana Jones. Yes.

Recap: Entourage Is Trippin’
Monday, October 6 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 5 "The Truth Seekers" Hey, look at that. Vince still can't get a job. But rather than addressing the cliffhanger set up at the end of last week's episode, the gang takes off into the dessert to trip balls. Vince:

Entourage “Fire Sale” Swims With Sharks
Monday, September 29 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 4 "Fire Sale." Vince still can't really get any work, but finally the entire story they have been setting up for E is starting to pay off. It's going to be a lot of fun watching him fall apart under the pressure. Vince and Ari:

It’s Always Sunny: “The Gang Gets a Billboard”
Friday, September 26 by

Recap: Season 4, Episode 3 "America s Next Top Paddy s Billboard Model Contest" Really, the only complaint I have about this show is how long the title is when I'm typing it. Plot:

The Office Season 5 Premiere
Friday, September 26 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 1 "Weight Loss."  By now it should be pretty clear that I like The Office, which makes me worry a little before the start of each season. Maybe it won't be as funny or maybe they'll bring in some shitty character to ruin the whole thing. Luckily, it seems like the awkward train has stayed right on track.

Recap: Season 1, Episode 4. Things haven't been going so well for our favorite crew of leather-clad tough guys. This week, they're looking to turn things around by killing their rivals and hiding their illegal machine guns from the feds. Plot:

Worst Week “Pilot” Is Funny, Awkward
Tuesday, September 23 by

Recap: Season 1, episode 1. If you're really into third party embarrassment, then Worst Week might be the best thing to happen to TV for you since The Office came stateside. Plot:

Heroes Season 3 Premiere Is Super
Tuesday, September 23 by

Recap: Season 3, episodes 1 and 2 "The Second Coming" and "Butterfly Effect"  No one would blame you if you gave up on Heroes last season, not even the writers. But after watching last night's episodes, I'm ready to believe that they're back to what made the show great in the first place.

True Blood: “Mine” Explains Vampire Blood Is Better Than Viagra
Monday, September 22 by

So far each episode has ended with Sookie looking like she’s reached the end of the line. At the end of episode 2, she was surrounded by raver looking vampires on the porch of Bill’s civil war mansion. Episode 3, "Mine" finds Sookie where we left her, now using her mental powers to resist to the hypnotism that the vampires are throwing in her direction.

Entourage “The All Out Fall Out”
Monday, September 22 by

Recap: Season 5 episode 3. You know, for a guy who is supposed to be making a come back, it sure looks like Vinny Chase is still falling further onto his hunky ass. Pretty soon, Eris is going to be the only guy in the crew with a job. Well, unless Turtle goes to work at Foot Locker or something. Vince:

Season 4 of It’s Always Sunny Kicks Off With “Mac and Dennis: Man Hunters”
Friday, September 19 by

The Office and 30 Rock haven't premiered yet, but I'm still pretty confident that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is the funniest show on TV. Didn't catch the season premiere? Well, Charlie and Dee become cannibals, while Mac and Dennis go hunting for a homeless man. Awesome. Charlie and Dee:

The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 Premiere Is a Show of Balls
Thursday, September 18 by

The season premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Nogueira vs. Team Mirbegan not with a bang, but with a whimper: As the 32 UFC hopefuls lined up to get pep-talked by Dana White, Phillipe Nover got a case of the vapors and passed out. (Is this show hardcore or what?!) To add further embarrassment to his situation, nobody seems to know how to pronounce Nover’s first name.

Fringe Gets Even Weirder In Episode 2
Wednesday, September 17 by

Recap: Season 1 episode 2. "The Same Old Story." After last week's pilot, comparisons to The X-Files were being thrown from every direction and this episode certainly isn't going to do anything to fix that. Story:

Weeds Season 4 Finale Smokes
Tuesday, September 16 by

Recap: Season 4 Episode 13, "If You Work for a Living, Why Do You Kill Yourself Working?" Nancy screwed up big time and leaves us all a little worried for her safety.

True Blood: “The First Taste” Has Blood And Sex
Monday, September 15 by

It’s Louisiana, so everybody has to have a problem. If you’re black you’re also gay. If you work in a Walmart you have a rapier wit and are too smart for your surroundings. If you’re captain of the football team, you’re also a sex addict with a penchant for rough rolls in the swamp. If you’re a trailer park blonde, you’re also telepathic.
