'Supernatural' recap: Not-so virgin territory

We were so close! I mean, closer than we have been all season long. But, alas, Dean once again did not spill his secret about Zeke to Sam. Sigh.

Of course, it’s not like Dean he didn’t want to finally tell Sam the truth. In fact, he was totally willing to go there in tonight’s episode, but was advised against doing so by Zeke, who’s really becoming a pain in my butt.


'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Three stories in time, all told in rhyme


Tonight’s How I Met Your Mother was an impressive feat to behold
Where three stories were told in rhyme, but were you all sold?

It was an hour that seemed straight from a bucket list
And since it’s the final season, well, you get the gist.

So here’s a little recap of all the action seen
Don’t worry, the rhymes end here, and I tried to keep it clean

'Supernatural' recap: The Sonny Days

God, I love episodes with flashbacks. And Tuesday’s episode of Supernatural is a perfect example of why.

In “Bad Boys,” we traveled back into Winchester history to a two-month period during which 16-year-old Dean Winchester found himself living in a home for troubled boys run by an ex-con named Sonny after being caught stealing bread and peanut butter from a local market. (Dean had lost the food money their dad left them in a card game and had resorted to stealing so that Sam wouldn’t go hungry.)

During this time, which we learned was something Dean and his father had kept a secret from Sam, Dean got a taste of the normal life. (Well, a life as normal as one can achieve while living in a boys home.) He joined the wrestling team, got good grades and even found himself a sweetie named Robin, who not only gave him his first kiss, but also was set to be his first school dance date. That plan hit a snag, which I’ll explain in a second. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: What did you think of Ellie Bishop?

The introduction of NSA analyst Ellie Bishop was not what I expected — and I mean that in a good way.

Why? Well, let’s dig into the episode and hopefully I can explain. READ FULL STORY

'Castle': Did you see the [spoiler] twist coming?

Well done, show. Well done.

I had my eye on Monday night’s episode of Castle for a few reasons — the biggest of which being that I loved the idea that a killer had seemingly created physical clones of Lanie and Espo. (!!) What was the killer’s connection to them? What was his or her evil angle? Would this new, totally twisted person get nabbed during the hour or be around for a while?

The answer: This person’s already been around for a while.


'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Zabka-tage

Zab·ka·tage  n. 1. Treacherous action by iconic 80s villain William Zabka to defeat or hinder a cause or an endeavor of Ted Mosby.

The How I Met Your Mother dictionary has a new entry! (See above.) But how did this now-iconic word come to be? That tale, friends, is but one thread in the wild web of this week’s recap…

Spoilers ahead!


'NCIS' recap: Not-so-simple explanations

There were sort of two cases being investigated in tonight’s episode of NCIS. The first was a hit-and-run case and the other was a murder that was, unbeknownst to NCIS, committed by the suspect in the hit-and-run and also the suspect’s alibi.

The problem was that the suspect, a guy named Dunne, obviously, didn’t want to tell NCIS that another murder was his alibi. So while his lawyer (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), a former FBI agent, could clear him in the hit-and-run, she also didn’t want him to get away on the other murder. (She was bound by attorney-client privilege and could not tell them the whole truth.) So she helped clue-in the team at NCIS that something wasn’t right in her client’s story. READ FULL STORY

'NCIS' recap: 'He's the best person I know'

Who didn’t get a little misty-eyed during tonight’s NCIS?

If you raised your hand, you have no soul. Kidding. (I think.) But everyone had to have been at least moved by the episode that found Gibbs worrying about his aging father while the team worked the case of a murdered marine sergeant named Michael Dawson, who appeared to have been killed during a robbery at a men’s suit shop.

'Supernatural' recap: Dog daze

What do Sam and Dean do when their best witness in a case is a big, fluffy German Shepherd named The Colonel? Well, in the past, they would have been up a creek. But, these days, they’re armed with all sorts of Men of Letters tricks so, naturally, they found a way to talk to the dog.

In this case, it was Dean who took the hit and drank a hairy potion so he could communicate with animals, and the side effects were nothing short of hilarious. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: How I [spoiler]ed to your mother

Well, I certainly didn’t see that coming.

After a few episodes that have tested the patience of some viewers (“We’re STILL NOT at the wedding?!” they say) , How I Met Your Mother has rewarded us with a huge moment. But as usual, it didn’t take place in the present-day.  READ FULL STORY
