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. She ratted out the Mexican crime boss she loves and got the gay partner of a DEA agent killed. Plus, she forgot to get Silas a birthday gift. But hey, at least she showed her boobs some more.

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.

Mad Men: “A Night To Remember” Toasts Heineken
Monday, September 15 by

Marriage is like much like the Cold War. I know, I’m married, and I bought a genuine piece of the former Berlin Wall, fashioned into a key chain, at a gas station in Calais when I was on a French exchange program in high school.

Entourage: “Unlike a Virgin” Sees the Return of Justine
Monday, September 15 by

Mythbusters Blow Up A Shark and Tear Up Some Phonebooks
Thursday, September 11 by

Season 7, Episode 4: "Phonebook Friction" With seven seasons under their tool belts, the Mythbusters don't have it as easy as they used to. This week Jamie and Adam test to see if two phone books, attached by simply intertwining the pages, can be impossible to pull apart. The other team try to re-enact the final scene from Deep Blue Sea.

Fringe: “Pilot” Is Chock Full of WTF
Wednesday, September 10 by

Episode 1 Nerds, geeks and other people who liked The X-Files have been eagerly anticipating Fringe's debut for months, but now that we have all seen the premiere, it seems like we have a hit on our hands. I'm excited for the rest of the season, but remind me never to get on a plane with J. J. Abrams. Dude has some serious issues with air travel.

Recap: Weeds: Episode 4.12
Monday, September 8 by

Episode: "Till We Meet Again." The finale is coming up like a random drug test on a supermarket employee and there's still quite a bit to be resolved. But now, the tunnel is gone and the shit is about to hit the fan. And this is Mexican shit. Anyone who has ever spent a weekend in a Tijuana bathroom knows that's no joke.

Recap: Mad Men Ep 2.07
Monday, September 8 by

How do you tell the world you've arrived in 1960? Pretty much the same way you tell the world you've arrived today: buy a Cadillac.

Recap: True Blood: Episode 1.01
Monday, September 8 by

With the bad taste of The Lost Boys: The Tribe still souring me a little on vampires, I didn't go into HBO's new blood-sucking series with high hopes. But, despite some really bad accents and Anna Paquin's jacked up teeth, True Blood doesn't suck….yet. Plot

Recap: Entourage: Episode 5.01
Sunday, September 7 by

Last time was saw the guys, Medellin had just bombed at the Cannes and sold for the bargain price of one dollar. Now it's time to find out if E and Vince can bounce back from such an epic failure. But first, let's watch Ari yell and hot girls get topless.

Recap: Mythbusters: Episode 7.03
Thursday, September 4 by

Episode: "Viral Videos." Everyone made a big deal about it when they tested the Diet Coke and Mentos myth, so I guess it only makes sense that they would devote a whole episode to wacky internet videos. I've posted the original clips of the videos they tested below, just in case you're a total n00b. The car lifted by firehoses:

Recap: Sons of Anarchy: Episode 1.01
Thursday, September 4 by

With The Shield about ready to start spending its pension checks, FX needed something to step in and provide us with our fix of violence and bad language. Judging by the first episode, it seems like Sons of Anarchy should fill that spot nicely. What happens:

Recap: The Shield Season 7 Premiere
Tuesday, September 2 by

We're almost at the end of the road for The Shield and I would be lying if I said it didn't make me just a little sad. For the past six seasons, this show has been giving us all the bad language and graphic violence we could ever expect to get from basic cable. It has been an awesome journey, but it looks like it's going to go out the way it came in: Kicking ass all over the place.

Recap: Mad Men: Episode 2.06
Tuesday, September 2 by

Episode: “Maidenform.” Glorious summer has come to Sterling Cooper, and what better time to focus on women’s underwear? Playtex want a new campaign to compete with the racy imaginations of their rival Maidenform (virgins with racy imaginations, oh my!).

Mad Men: Ep. 206
Thursday, August 28 by
Recap: Mythbusters: Episode 7.02 NASA Moon Landing
Thursday, August 28 by

Episode: "Nasa Moon Landing." I try to get into fist fights with conspiracy theorists as often as possible. They're usually fat guys or 15 year olds with studded leather jackets so I win pretty easily. But, the Mytbusters are taking a more tactful approach, opting to prove the cellar dwellers wrong with nerdy scientific experiments.

Recap: Man Vs. Wild: Episode 5.02
Thursday, August 28 by

Episode: "The Deep South." The south is a dangerous enough place, what with all of the cholesterol-laden foods and NASCARs whipping around all over the place, but Bear dropped himself in the middle of what he calls "Katrina Country" to bite the heads off of some snakes and piss off some alligators. The terrain:

Recap: Weeds: Episode 4.11
Tuesday, August 26 by

Episode: "Head Cheese". After last week's big happenings, things slowed down for this episode, probably so they can get everyone into position for the last two episodes of the season. It looks like some shit is about to go down. Nancy:

Mad Men: Ep 2.05
Monday, August 25 by

Episode 5, “The New Girl” starts off with Pete Campbell and his wife at the doctor. The doc is smoking a cigarette and discussing fertility issues with the couple, who are having some trouble with making a baby.

Recap: Generation Kill: Episode 1.07
Monday, August 25 by

Episode: "A Bomb in the Garden." I'm a little sad that our time with recon is over, even if the last episode didn't exactly hit me with a mortar shell of awesomeness. What happened?

Recap: Weeds: Episode 4.10
Tuesday, August 19 by

Episode: "The Love Circle Overlap." I was disappointed with last week's episode, but Weeds seems to be back with the good stuff this week to make up for last week's ounce of shake. There's nothing like a drugr trip and an underage threesome to get things back into gear. Nancy:

Recap: Generation Kill: Episode 1.06
Monday, August 18 by

Episode: "Stay Frosty." Hey, look! We're six episodes in and the war is still all screwed up. Who could've seen that coming? It's incredible how things just keep getting worse for these recon Marines. It wasn't bad enough that they had to deal with inept officers, but now they have a bunch of dumb-ass civilian soldiers out in the field putting everyone at risk.

Recap: The Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget
Monday, August 18 by

While Comedy Central's batting average has been pretty solid as far as roasts go, some are definitely better than others. With a line-up that included Norm McDonald, Jim Norton and the rest of the regular roasters, I had high hopes going into Danny Tanner's event. Did it live up to the hype? Almost.
