Ouch. This past week certainly hasn’t been easy for those of us who are a little too unhealthily involved in the lives of television characters. Glee, How I Met Your Mother and Grey’s Anatomy all had major relationship shake-ups, just a few weeks into the fall season. (SPOILER ALERT! for this past week’s episodes ahead). On Monday, after an episode-long tease over who exactly would break up, Barney and Quinn called it quits over on How I Met Your Mother. It was hard to feel too sad about that one, though, not with an ending that had Barney and Robin off on a “sometime in the future” lunch date. READ FULL STORY
Tag: Grey's Anatomy (41-50 of 143)
Last week, my colleague Mandi Bierly wrote a post about TV’s greatest tearjerkers that got me thinking about all my personal favorites, many of which came up in the comments. But as I constructed my list of favorite scenes, I realized that there are some actors who really know how to deliver the waterworks. There are some who, without fail, have the power to reduce me to a sobby mess.
Last night, for example, I was watching the latest Sons of Anarchy and realized that Charlie Hunnam is very much one of those actors. As gruff, strong Jax Teller, it isn’t often that we see Hunnam get to flex that particular emotional muscle. But when he does — man, it’s fantastic. [Sons spoiler ahead...] Two weeks ago, when Opie died in prison, the impact of the moment in itself made me tear up. But it was Jax’s reaction that really got me. And last night, at Opie’s wake, it happened again. I had to rehydrate after that.
So when I really got to thinking about it, I realized that there are only a few actors that have this power over me. My top 5 — in no particular order — are listed below. READ FULL STORY
Ghost sex: all the kids are doing it!
Okay, maybe not, but some kids are doing it. Now that Ke$ha has come out of the supernatural closet by telling the world about her sexual ghost encounter, we realized that there’s been a lot of pop-culture instances of such relations.
Here are some of our favorite incidents of ghost sex:
Ke$ha in “Supernatural”: She says the song is “about experiences with the supernatural, but in a sexy way.” Sample lyrics include “Boy, this love is supernatural/Can you feel it,” which is a good question — can one feel ghost sex? We’re not sure, but maybe giving the song a listen will help:
When New Girl returns tonight, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) finally gets his penis cast removed. In honor of that glorious occasion — we’re looking back at the worst phallic injuries on TV.
Thursday, traditionally primetime’s biggest night, won’t really get interesting until Oct. 4. By then, every network — minus The CW — will have premiered new episodes of its fall Thursday shows. As of tonight, though, only Fox is airing shiny new autumnal TV: CBS has comedy repeats and a new Big Brother, ABC’s showing summer series Wipeout and an old ep of Grey‘s, and NBC’s entire night has been turned over to the season finale of America’s Got Talent.
But in early October? By then, we’ll be four episodes into the fourth season of Glee, and all of NBC’s comedies will have returned. Meredith Grey will be sobbing all new sobs on ABC, and Lucy Liu will be steaming up screens as a sexy Dr. Watson on CBS’s Elementary. ‘Twill be a glorious time, my friends. A glorious time indeed.
So let’s fudge tonight’s TV Timeslot Wars poll by pretending that frabjous day is already upon us. When October rolls around, comedy lovers will be faced with a tough choice at 8 pm: The Big Bang Theory‘s nerds or 30 Rock‘s nerds? If you like one, there’s a good chance you also like the other — though you could always ditch both for extra Britney on The X Factor‘s results show.
Here’s the moment of truth — which show will you watch live? Let us know in the poll below.
Apparently, at some point, my friends stopped watching Grey’s Anatomy and failed to inform me.
I discovered this last week when I was gushing to my friend Amy* about how excited I was for the show to return. Her response? “Oh, I stopped watching that a long time ago.” To be clear: I am NOT okay with this.
I sort of blame myself, actually. We used to bond over Grey’s Anatomy, and when I moved away, it became harder for us to have our weekly post-episode chat session. But I’m now on a personal mission to get her — and my other friends who have fallen off the McSexy wagon — to start watching again. Because I think it’s too good for Grey’s fans (past and present!) to be missing. READ FULL STORY
Shonda Rhimes is fierce. But not in the Tyra “Oh, you look so fierce” Banks way. I mean fierce as in “I’m not afraid to kill off one of my beloved characters all in the name of good television” kind of way.
In the weeks before tonight’s season finale, the executive producer and creator behind the show has made no secret of the fact that we should brace ourselves to say goodbye to a cast member before the season ends. Note how I said “cast member” and not “doctor.”
Last week’s episode ran relatively calm as the residents made their decisions to leave Seattle Grace or stay put — until the last two minutes, when a plane carrying a handful of doctors crashed somewhere in the Northwestern wilderness. So who is leaving us tonight? We know Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh, Ellen Pompeo, and Justin Chambers are signed on for two more seasons, so I’m counting them out. But here are my thoughts on which character might be signing off: READ FULL STORY
Parting is such sweet sorrow, and this week witnesses so many television season finales — including Desperate Housewives‘ huge series finale — that dedicated fans will be looking for ways to fill the void. (Except hardcore gamers, who can likely ignore every suggestion after Tuesday’s release of Diablo III.) But there’s plenty of entertainment to lift your spirits: Howard Stern is loose on the airwaves again, a horrible dictator is dealt some New York justice, and your favorite sitcom couple will cap the week, hopefully on a high note.
Desperate Housewives series finale, ABC, 9 p.m.
After eight seasons of soapy plotlines that took great joy in killing off characters in the most unusual ways, it’s safe to expect that the last tour of Wisteria Lane will find someone cold. But this final season has been anything but, as the show has been rejuvenated after several seasons of melodramatic hokum. As the Queen song goes, “Another One Bites the Dust,” but Housewives is saying its farewell in style. READ FULL STORY
