Wow, there is a lot of TV on tonight. Lucky I have seen some of it and below are my quick thoughts….
V – 10/9c on ABC With next Tuesday, D-Day in the V world both on TV and behind the scenes, as the season finale will air and ABC will decide the faith of the series at Upfronts. The prospects are looking a lot better now as the ratings have been steady unlike the other bubble drama, FlashForward. Tonight’s episode really serves as a prequel to the events of the finale and does it well. It clearly will be Erica vs. Anna, and that pairing has started in an unusual way tonight. Maybe the best episode of the series yet and the last scene will shock you thanks to great guest starring roles.
Justified – 10/9c on FX Back in March, when the Timothy Olyphant fronted series began I was very happy with the product, now as we enter the final stretch of the first season (FX recently ordered a 2nd), I have not been that happy with the product. The episodes in recent weeks have been hit or miss but the episode airing now is very much a hit. Raylan is caught up in a very compelling hostage swap, and the next episode after keeps up the high paced energy.
The Good Wife – 10/9c on CBS Oh how I love this show. Tonight’s episode the Alicia vs. Cary battle that was presented all the way back in the pilot. The episode focuses on Will and Diane’s decision that they do not want to make as bigger problems like the firm going under by losing big players. Alicia meanwhile focuses on how Eli Gold (Alan Cumming) is affecting her life while juggling a case involving a ugly rock-star divorce. Also, look for tons of familiar faces if you watched Damages.
Now, I have some quick thoughts on why I am so excited about tonight’s episode below, there will be some spoilers…
Lost – 9/8c on ABC I just wanted to tell you how excited I am for tonight’s special guest star in “Across the Sea.” If you have not heard, The West Wing‘s Emmy-winner Allison Janney is taking a turn in one of the last hours of the series as only “Woman.” Of course, I have my theories of who she is playing in a episode focusing on the history of MIB and Jacob, and she could be playing one of their mothers. It will sure be a great episode of the island series. Check out a sneak peek with Allison below from the episode….
