Hot Topics

Glee’s Swan Song
Glee is coming to an end, and I can’t say that I care. The show was fun the first two seasons, but I was never invested enough to stick with the show (and apparently it’s been terrible ever since). But this move makes sense, especially since it couldn’t have been easy continuing after Cory Monteith’s death. Thankfully, Ryan Murphy can now concentrate on making sure American Horror Story keeps astounding me with its brilliance.

SpyDaddy Joins The Good Wife
In what can only be described as an Alias reunion, Victor Garber is joining The Good Wife in the role of a “meticulous judge”. Melissa George has been surprisingly great so far, so I’m excited to see these two onscreen together again. Who’s next? Lena Olin? Jennifer Garner? Take your pick show! They’d all fit perfectly.

Egypt Strikes Back!
How is this not already on the air? FOX has ordered Hieroglyph – a 13 episode drama set in Ancient Egypt about a thief who serves the Pharaoh. The setting is ripe with potential, so I’ll definitely be giving this one a shot. Let’s see who gets cast.

The Crazy Ones Get Crazier
CBS has wisely picked up The Crazy Ones, The Millers and Mom for the rest of their debut seasons. None have received a second season renewal yet, but I have to say they’re my favorite new comedies of the season. And hey, Sarah Michelle Gellar is finally starting to wipe the horrid taste of Ringer out of my mouth. Go Buffy!

The CW Gets Political
A CW terrorist drama? I’m so there! Who else is looking forward to watching hot young terrorists setting off nuclear bombs across the globe? This is going to be awesome (or painfully awesome). Oh, and it’s currently being referred to as Untitled Sibling Terrorist drama. Ha!

This Week In Ratings

The Walking Dead is Far From Dead!
How ironic that The Walking Dead’s highest rated episode ever was so darn uneventful. Still, I’m happy for the show because it’s been a wild ride. Just step up the excitement next week okay?

Weekly Picks

Quote of the Week
“Mer, your boobs are exploding. Go pump.”
Christina Yang, Grey’s Anatomy.

Episode of the Week
Scandal 3×03 – Mrs. Smith Goes To Washington
This lovable show wins the crown for the third straight week with its strongest episode of the season yet. This was a harrowing and powerful hour of television. My mind is blown.

Promo of the Week
Arrow
This season of Arrow is shaping up to be utterly fantastic, and this awesome promo for The Black Canary’s debut has me even more excited.

Must-Download Tune of the Week
Talking In Your Sleep by The Civil Wars
Well, Betrayal will never win episode of the week but this is the second time I discover an incredible song on the show. Say what you will about the messy drama, but they sure know how to pick their music. Gorgeous duet.

Before I bid you goodbye, who wants their very own Revenge Infinity Box? Here you go. And yes, now you know what I want for Christmas.

Happy TV Binging!
