  • Soulja Boy thinks these guys are idiots, too.

For me, watching the Bachelorette is about learning lessons; about love, about myself. For instance, I've learned that as a woman I'm supposed to be emotionally and sexually aroused by sob stories about illnesses, car accidents, and shitty childhoods. Baggage is like a pair of bun-hugging leather pants for a guy's whole self. Very hot. Also,...

  • Don't waste your high fives. Will wants them.

Hi, everyone. Look what we're doing again.

Since the last time we hung out, Bachelorette Emily Maynard used her charm and toothy grin to snag Jef (last name: With One F), then used those same gleaming, billboard-sized shards of enamel to sever all ties with the boyish cuckold. Then Emily's castoff Sean found love in Catherine, a woman...

  • "And while we're at it, I don't care for Catholics, either!"



Many TV shows make the mistake of thinking that their series need to be packed full of plot points ("Downton Abbey" being among them - I refer you to Season Two for all the evidence you need). But when you've created a rich world populated by characters we have grown to care about, sometimes there's pleasure to be found in...

  • When the law is an ass, somebody has to kick it!



"The Good Wife" saved their best guest star for last. After last week's glut of guest stars, this week had only one, but she was a good one: Elsbeth Tascioni, played by Carrie Preston. Elsbeth has an amazing combination of qualities, from excessive exuberance to sharp mental acuity to extreme good nature. In fact, everything about...

  • Look at me I'm Edith C! For once everything is all about me!



Does any other show burn through plots as quickly as "Downton Abbey?" There was the good, the better and the worst at the manor this week, and while the episode was high on drama, it lacked any real risk. This was our third hour spent contemplating Downton's ruin because, without Bates around, somebody has to fall on their...

  • "I don't care WHAT Rahm Emmanuel calls you, I will eat you alive!"



Quietly, "The Good Wife" returned last night, smothered per usual by more hyped shows on networks who care about them (in this case, "Downton Abbey" on PBS). But "Boom De Ya Da" (one of the laziest non-sequitur titles they've ever come up with) was a great way to pick up after the mid-season break and come back fresh,...

  • "She'll die soon and we'll get the money." "No, it looks as if she might bury us all." "Pity."



PBS aired the first two episodes of "Downton Abbey" back to back. Here's my review of the first hour.

Hardly a pause for breath, was there? The second hour of "Downton" swept through with as many swirling plots as the first, spending far more time Downstairs than Up this time (or so it...

  • "I bring chaos and drama! ... and quips!"



After a questionable second season, whose times jumps played havoc on all aspects of the series, last year's "Downton Abbey" Christmas Special righted the ship that show creator and head writer Julian Fellowes let run precariously off-course. Now that "that pesky war" is over with, Fellowes can return to what he does best: posh manner drama...

  • Death Stares caught on Dradis, set Condition One throughout



"The Good Wife" trimmed the fat (mostly) for "A Defense of Marriage," and focused almost entirely on Alicia both in and out of the courtroom. It's of little wonder though when this series' named is paired with an episode title and theme like this one. Marriage was on trial for everyone this week, from the micro to the macro,...

  • This could be the beginning of beautiful friendship



"Vegas" continues to get better and better, not only starting to find its rhythm narratively but also by doubling back and building on stories it's already established. The Case of the Week plots aren't always throwaways - the Milwaukee crew from a few weeks back that Savino had killed is found (Pro Tip: never bury your bodies on...

  • J'ACCUSE!



This has been another transitional season for "The Good Wife," but despite some starts and stops it really has remained a great show. "Here Comes the Judge" again married the Case of the Week closely with Lockhart Gardner, to its benefit. And though there were some lagging sidebar plots (hmmm who could that be ... Nick maybe? You got it!), overall it was a pretty engaging...
