'NCIS' recap: Welcome aboard

“Welcome aboard, probie.”

Those are the three words Ellie Bishop heard at the end of tonight’s NCIS, but getting to that point wasn’t easy.

In fact, there were a few moments in tonight’s episode, which saw the conclusion of the Benham Parsa arc, where it was clear that Gibbs and Bishop weren’t getting along at all. Their spat stemmed from the fact that Bishop had been hiding information about the Parsa case from the team. Specifically? She didn’t tell anyone that she was sort of an expert on him.

'New Girl' recap: Misled 'Exes' and Places for Sexin'

Can’t say this episode did a lot to move sitcom gender politics forward, folks. As we have long known, women only have two modes: adorably naïve or vengeful psychopath. Men, meanwhile, are just out to bone. Feel free to disagree with me (and all respect to Adam Brody and Mary Elizabeth Ellis), but this ep felt like a bit of a letdown after Sunday’s genuinely hilarious, plot-advancing post-Super Bowl episode. Sure, it exposed an emotional side to Nick we rarely see (albeit one even Jess didn’t fully buy),  but it also lost some ground — for me at least — with a reliance on clichéd “big concepts” rather than small-scale character comedy. The latter is where New Girl thrives. So, shall we? READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Letting go

You drenched yourself in Drakkar. You wore a fresh pair of white socks. And you pulled out the best mime moves your body could handle. Yet, the ladies at that party you just left still weren’t interested. What are two down-on-your-luck bros to do? Well, if you’re the guys we met at the top of tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, you’re on your way home alone. That is, until you meet an inebriated Barney Stinson on the road, who swears to show you the way to the Promised Land…of awesomeness.

And show them he did.

Barney took these nameless bros under his wing and taught them the lessons of his people. He took them to a magical strip club to show them the wonders of fearless interaction with females, sent them to Tim Gunn to get outfitted with proper suits, and accompanied them to the party they had struck out at earlier to teach them the moves of a proper Wingman. (“Haaaaave you met…”) READ FULL STORY

'New Girl' recap: A post-Super Bowl episode fit for a Prince

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t seen the post-Big Game episode, do not read on, Newbies. If you have and want to discuss how Prince(!) paved the purple-licious path for a major moment between Jess and Nick, click through.  READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Recreation' says farewell to Ann and Chris: Will you miss them?

…and just like that, Pawnee has said goodbye to Chris and Ann. And while their move devastated Leslie Knope to the point of nearly rejecting an invitation to breakfast, in all, tonight’s farewell to Chris and Ann was a fitting one.

The episode revolved around Leslie’s efforts to execute one last huge, thoughtful surprise for her departing best friend by breaking ground on the Pawnee Commons, fulfilling a pinky promise to Ann she’d made when they first met. That proved harder than anticipated, though, as her efforts were blocked by Harold from Public Works (Chris Bauer). So while the gang enjoyed an epic party, comprised of 30 mini-parties to celebrate every holiday Ann and Leslie would not be able to celebrate together, Ann and Leslie teamed up to make the Pawnee Commons a reality.

'Supernatural' recap: 'Something's broken here'

It’s just a spat, I know. But any time the Winchester brother are on less-than-friendly terms, a tiny piece of me dies. You hear that, show, I’m DYING. And you DON’T CARE.

Sorry. Freak-out over. I’m not dying. I’m just stressed. As I mentioned, Sam and Dean are still working out some of the core issues that were left in the aftermath of the Gadreel drama. And though they tackled a couple of them head on in tonight’s episode, they’re far from done having it out over everything that has gone down so far this season. But I’ll get to that. First, we have to talk about Garth, who, it turns out, has gone through some pretty big stuff since we last saw him. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Did the 200th episode ShamROCK your world?

You know that moment where you learn something about a person and suddenly they’re not who you thought they were? Tonight’s 200th episode of How I Met Your Mother was a half hour of that — an unraveling of a person, in this case The Mother, that completely changed the person I’d assembled in my head over the years from the tiny, perfectly-placed clues that had been placed before us viewers. Shattered is my mental image of this Dream Girl put on this Earth solely to be the opposite end of Ted Mosby’s two-piece puzzle life, and suddenly in front of me is a real woman. A woman who’s survived real heartbreak, gone through real challenges and has real goals in life. I’ve been waiting nine years to see her like that — and I gotta say, it feels wonderful.

But let me dive a little deeper into this milestone episode and fill in the last eight years of The Mother’s life…
