It is Wednesday. What are you watching?
Lost – 9/8c on ABC Last week on the island/off-island: Desmond went to Oxford, found Faraday’s past, had a baby with Penny, named it Charlie, saw Charles Widmore, found where Faraday’s mom lives, Charles is from the island, he was an other, Locke, Juliet, and Sawyer meet some 1950’s others, they take them to Richard, along with Faraday, Miles, and Charlotte, Faraday confesses his love for Charlotte, there is a hydrogen bomb, there is another flash, bomb is bye bye, Charlotte collapses, not good news for her, and that was “Jughead.” Last week was full of answers but also more questions. Hopefully this week will answer more.
Tonight’s episode is entitled “The Little Prince” and I think that refers to Aaron, Claire’s baby but Kate’s “son.” That is because tonight, Kate gets more insight into who knows about Aaron’s family and what they want. The hour also continues to tell the story of the Oceanic Six and how Ben and Jack are going to convince everybody to go back. They will have to do it quick because we only have 70 hours and those hours will end in the February 18th episode. Time is running!
Life – 9/8c on NBC Will you find this hidden gem among all the other offerings at 9? I hope you will. Life is a show that is so well produced, acted, and all around well made. Last year, the ending episode left us with a bang. Charlie Crews was shot. It sure was a shocker for me and can’t wait to see where it takes us. On related news, the female star Sarah Shahi is pregnant. Congrats.
American Idol – 8/7c on FOX Group day! After yesterday’s premiere of Hollywood Week, which was a great showcase of some of the good singers that we did and did not see in the auditions. Tonight, in this SOLO competition, the singers get in groups and sing with having to go through that long night of fighting. Now that is fun TV!
Top Chef: New York – 10/9c on Bravo I say this over and over again but I really have been enjoying this season of Top Chef. It is sad to hear the show will be moving to the Big Easy on the 18th for the two-part finale with guest judge Emril. I am really glad to say that my favorite Carla Hall is still in the running. I love her. Tonight, Eric Ripert returns when the cooks make dinner at his restaurant.
Lie to Me – 9/8c on FOX Have you been watching this new series? Have you liked it? I know I have. The series is now exploring the characters, and not just the cases. There personal lives are taking center stage, and I hope more of Cal’s will be scooped out with his daughter played by the great Kay Panabaker. In the third hour, the team has to delve into the world of prep schools when a federal judge’s kid gets killed.
Damages – 10/9c on FX Two shows on Wednesday’s that work your brain to a pulse. Lost and Damages manage to get you thinking like none other and that is often the reason I watch Damages on Thursday, so I can just wrap my brain around it. Last week, we say Daniel blow what we that of him, and we learned West Virginia is toxic in the Damages’ world. This week, Patty finally suspects something from Ellen and Patty also suspects more from Purcell.
