Spoiler alert! If you haven’t watched the Doctor Who season finale, stop reading now. My recap is over there, but here’s a quick sketch.
Tag: TV Season Finales (11-20 of 64)
There are so many talking points for SNL‘s 38th season finale that I hardly know where to begin! Maybe it’ll help to organize them as a list:
1. Tonight marks Ben Affleck’s fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live, which grants him membership to SNL‘s storied Five-Timers Club. Usually, a moment like this would occasion a big, cameo-stuffed sketch featuring veteran hosts like Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. But SNL just gave us a cameo-stuffed Five Timer’s Club sketch when Justin Timberlake hosted in March — and it’s way too soon to repeat that same conceit. So how will the show acknowledge Affleck’s milestone? Maybe Timberlake will show up to induct him?
2. As you may already know, Stefon’s very first SNL appearance wasn’t a Weekend Update visit. It was this little-remembered sketch from the last time Affleck hosted the show in 2008, which casts Bill Hader and the host as brothers pitching a movie together. (According to the clip, Stefon’s last name is Zolesky — who knew?) This has to mean that Stefon and Affleck’s David are going to appear together again tonight, right?
For anyone who’s stuck with The Office through thick and thin, fat years and lean years, the slow disintegration of Jan Levenson’s sanity and stern rule of Charles Miner and the misguided creepiness of Robert California — or even those who tuned in after a long break just to see how everything turned out — last night’s 75-minute-long finale was pretty much perfect.
Basically everybody got what they wanted: Dwight and Angela wed in appropriately weird Schrute fashion. Andy revealed that he’d moved back to Ithaca to work at his beloved alma mater (Cornell — ever heard of it?). Nellie stumbled into motherhood in the most random way possible. Erin found her parents, played adorably by Joan Cusack and Ed Begley Jr. Oscar worked on a campaign for state senate, while Kevin discovered that bartending suited him much better than accounting. Ryan and Kelly returned to Scranton separately, only to run off together (and, most likely, immediately break up again offscreen). Jim and Pam decided to move to Austin, where Jim will rejoin Athlead — sorry, Athleap — and Pam will, I don’t know, eat tacos or something.
And then there’s Michael Scott, whose “surprise” appearance wasn’t really much of a surprise. Even so, though, it was pretty great — especially when we learned that he had at least two kids and two phones, because “he’s just so happy to have a family plan.” Excuse me, but I think there’s something in my eye. (That’s what she said.)
At the end of last week’s Elementary, Moriarty led Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) straight to his presumed dead lady love Irene Adler (Natalie Dormer). In the season finale, Sherlock attempts to keep Irene safe, while Watson (Lucy Liu) tries to figure out who imprisoned and psychologically tortured Irene. (Sherlock removed himself from the case, leaving Joan to work her learned Holmesian magic with the NYPD.) READ FULL STORY

It’s closing time, Newbies. Hard to believe 25 episodes have come and gone this quickly. But as a wise man once said, “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” What that means for Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston, Cece, Schivrang, and… Taylor Swift? Well, you’ll just have to click through. Fair warning for everyone who hasn’t seen tonight’s episode: Stop now because there are SPOILERS AHEAD! READ FULL STORY
