FTW vs. WTF: The TV Week in Review (January 12)

What better way to escape the bitter cold than to cozy up with your laptop and relive the best and worst events of the week in TV? Well, you could start by putting on some pants, and maybe close the window, and how about not finishing that Big Gulp Slurpee? But your first priority should be to check out FTW vs. WTF, because pants have nothing to say about Community, your window (open OR closed) isn't up-to-date on Justified, and while that Slurpee will turn your tongue blue, it won't play you a YouTube video from The Good Wife. Warmer temperatures will be here soon enough, but if you fall behind on television you may as well be a permanent resident of Antarctica. So let's get on with this week's TV round-up!




The Good Wife dances to the tune of its own earworm

Sunday's "Goliath and David" had plenty of Good Wife fun in it, from Matthew Lillard's great guest appearance to Peter Bogdanovich's surprise cameo, but the best thing to come out of the episode may've been the cast and crew getting down to the original song "Thicky Trick." Christine Baranski was dancing in hair rollers like a boss!



The cast of Archer got nekkid for Reddit

To promote the upcoming fifth season (which starts Monday), ADuchess, LanaLov3sBananas, WhamBamThankyaPam, KriegerSan69, and TheOtherBarryD popped their internet-selfie cherries with some very suggestive snapshots. THAT'S how you do advertising, networks!



The Spoils of Babylon brings the epic parody

Three cheers for good-looking comedy! On Thursday, IFC launched the latest in its roster of top notch goof-'em-ups with the sprawling, epic miniseries The Spoils of Babylon, offering a fun watch with plenty of opportunities for Kristen Wiig to do her "drama screams" and Will Ferrell a chance to do that gross, bearded professor-type persona, Babylon looks to be a dependable smile-source for Thursday nights. Hooray!



Yay! Revenge only made us sit through one episode of Amnesia Emily

There's nothing soapier (or more cringe-inducing) than an amnesia storyline, so when we first heard Revenge was doing one, we groaned. But as it turns out, we got upset over nothing, because the forgettin' disease (which occurred in the wake of Emily being shot in the abdomen and then chilling in some really cold water for a bit) only lasted one episode. Yeah, it was mostly a plot contrivance to allow Emily to slip up and tell Charlotte that her father was David Clarke, but let's just be thankful that the brain lapse didn't last the rest of the season and call it a day.



Parks and Recreation turned 100

Although "Second Chunce" wasn't the most exciting episode in the history of 100th episodes, we're kind of glad that Parks and Recreation stayed true to itself and ended with a heartwarming trip to Paris for Leslie and Ben instead of Leslie announcing another run for office. Plus: guest stars! Kathryn Hahn is so good, you guys. 



ASS-CRACK BANDIT!!!!!!

All doubts about whether or not Community is officially back were stuffed down someone's butt crack this week in "Basic Intergluteal Numismatics," the first stunt—and funniest—episode of the season. David Fincher films and serial-killer shows were lampooned as Greendale was assaulted by the Ass-Crack Bandit, a crazed individual who stuffed quarters down people's butts.



Helix is both scary AND gorgeous

Okay maybe it's not Shakespeare, but when Syfy's new viral thriller wants to be spooky, it is really spooky. Using its budgetary limitations and confined setting to its advantage, the series aptly puts the focus on creepiness and claustrophobia in a sterile, impersonal environment. In other words, it looks great and makes you freak out.



Justified returned in fine midseason form

Oh how we missed your seductive prose, Justified. Season 5 opened almost flawlessly, returning to the formula that made its second season so great with Raylan Givens taking on another formidable hillbilly family. And Boyd's bad day may just turn him into a raging psychopath again. You better be watching this gem, because it's one of TV's best.



Alex Trebek raps it up


Never change, Alex.



New Girl went to the bar and sorted a few things out

After struggling and straining all through the fall, New Girl finally returned this week with an episode that focused on the core characters and gave us hope for the rest of the season. We'll drink to that!



Teen Wolf finally puts Stiles front and center

Season 3B kicked off on Monday, and Dylan O'Brien's sarcastic sidekick is finally getting his time in the spotlight as the aftermath of the triple suicide finally starts to take a toll on the gang. Nothing against Scott, but a Stiles-centric storyline feels long overdue. It isn't easy to steal a show away from its lead, but Mr. Stillinski has proved time and again that he's the real hero of Teen Wolf, and we're not afraid to admit that we're just a bit more excited than usual for this upcoming season, knowing we're going to be exploring his character more deeply.



SVU finds Pablo Schreiber guilty...

...of playing one of the most maddeningly manipulative, absolute garbage human beings we've seen on TV in a while. This week's trial was ROUGH, and for a while, we were truly worried that Lewis might walk and that Olivia might never recover. Thank goodness that jury put him away.





The Ezra/EzrA debate continues on Pretty Little Liars

The winter premiere was a table-setter of an episode, with the girls receiving new purpose after their entire premise was upheaved last Halloween. It was a pretty meh hour overall, but the main discourse was squarely on whether Ezra Fitz is, or is at least closely associated with, A—and it was admittedly pretty compelling. There are decent arguments from all sides: Some people hink Ezra was always kind of contemptible with his choice in ladies. Some people who strongly believed in Ezria (...) can't convince themselves that Ezra could be such a bad guy. And some people simply question this heel-turn because PLL is more steeped in red herring than a St. Olaf street festival. Mona's tense discussion with Fitz only proved things to be more troublesome; is Ezra just trying to keep Mona in check because he knows she was A at one time? Or was that a coffee between the two bully crime bosses of Rosewood? These shouldn't even be discussions we have because Ezra dated and slept with a high school student while teaching at that same school which makes him kind of despicable, but hey, we don't run the internet. Way to breathe some new life into your central mystery, show.



Intelligence was... okay

We love having Sawyer back on television, but couldn't CBS's new procedural about a guy with a fancy superpowered microchip in his brain be more than just a procedural about a guy with a fancy superpowered microchip in his brain? Maybe next week gets better, but color us unimpressed with its start.





Top Chef's bullshit—but understandable per the rules of the show—elimination... which actually makes it even more bullshitty

When the number of cheftestants starts to dwindle, it's practically a given that someone will end up going home for a great dish that just happens to be slightly less great than another great dish. It's also practically a given that, as the number of cheftestants starts to dwindle that there's no immunity granted, and the chefs have to live and die on their dishes. Sadly, that was not the case in "Oui Si a Challenge," where Nicholas received immunity and then proceeded to drag his team to the bottom, relying on his immunity to save his ass. He could've stepped up and volunteered to go home, as the judges gently prodded him (and seemed to want him) to do, but nope! Stephanie had to pack her knives and go instead. So, Nicholas, when Carlos attempts to undermine you again, don't expect any sympathy from us.



Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars has a new music video

Now let's all forget about it.



Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. didn't tell us anything about Coulson that we didn't already know

The big mystery all season has been "What happened to Coulson?" And after he was kidnapped in the fall finale, we were promised answers, but that was a big fat lie because we didn't learn anything we didn't already know. Sure, Coulson discovered some of the truth, or at least had his suspicions confirmed, but we still don't know how Director Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. brought him back to life. Come on, S.H.I.E.L.D., give us something!



The Bachelor makes a mess out of poor Lauren H.


The show's editors wasted no time playing up her broken-engagement story for their "Jilted Woman" narrative, and she did her part at the cocktail party by totally losing it. This show is one trainwreck after another and we love it for that very reason, but can we please stop casting women who clearly just aren't ready for the experience? This gal clearly has some healing to do, and ABC never should've let her on the show in the first place. 



The People's Choice Awards, oh God the People's Choice Awards


Super Fun Night for Favorite New TV Comedy? Beauty and the Beast for Favorite Sci-fi/Fantasy TV Show? Who are these "people" and what have they done to their taste?


What's on YOUR list of TV loves and hates this week?

Sorry, we've been watching—we really have—sometimes it's just hard to recognize the show through all the tears. What was your favorite part of this week's ep?

For us it might've actually been the convo between Julia and Joel at the end. We want to see them make it but Joel may be right...

FTW to The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson for returning with... HORSE! That is both the best intro to tweetmails and the worst since it barely makes a cameo at the end, but either way it's horseploitation at its finest!

FTW to Community for the ACB episode, never forget.

FTW to Psych for "going" to London for a fun, silly parody of Lock Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels with our favorite over-the-top superthief pulling a Keyser Soze.

FTWTF to SVU for a courtroom episode but then going with the stupidest possible route of having the criminal act as his own lawyer, and also once again escaping, and also ending with such an ambivalent message as the show being content having Benson lie about what happened in the cabin. Interesting but also soapy.

FTW: Sherlock - IMO the best episode yet, even though many fans would't agree with me I stand by it.
FTW: Helix - I'm intrigued. I have so many questions, I just hope they get answered and it's not them bringing up weird/cool things and never expanding on them.
WTF: People's Choice Awards - Still can't believe Super Fun Night and Kristin Kreuk took home awards. WOW.
WTF: TBBT bringing up real heavy issues at the end of last week's episode then practically completely ignoring them. AND I'm SO over the whole pigeonholing Raj thing. Give him a good storyline, jeeeez!

Why solve the mystery in the first half of the season? As for not telling Coulson; would you want to be the one to tell your friend that you tortured them back to life? That isn't a conversation I'd want to have.

I would agree, but some people seem impatient to find out the answer now.

We've never really seen that Fury and Coulson are "friends." Regardless, the implication has been that the secret is vital for some reason other than just to protect Coulson's feelings.

Fury and Coulson have been friends for years, according to comic history. But I do agree with you about the secret being vital for a reason other than Coulson's feelings.

The show doesn't have most of the comic history.

I don't think it was ever about the how. Whether they injected him with nanites, or created a LMD, or did open brain surgery with a robot, or cast a magic spell, didn't matter. It's superheroes: anything is possible.

"Babylon looks to be a dependable smile-source for Thursday nights. Hooray!"

If by "dependable" you mean five nights. We really should get the full 22-hour unabridged version Jonrosh promises, 4 seasons, 11 episodes a season.

?Or like Police Squad!, will it burn bright but brief.

I did very much enjoy the premiere of Helix, but in terms of building up fear and suspense, I felt the return of Teen Wolf did that in spades by comparison. Sure, I may be a bit biased having 2 1/2 seasons of that already drawing me in, but I'm still sticking with that belief.

This week new shows debut was better than expected !

The one I loved most was HELIX. Though generally not favor by most (judging from the comments section of the show), I thought it was better than average. It was exciting enough to make me watch 3 episodes at a go !

The spoils of Babylon was another one that was great ! It was really fun! It was also nice to watch these movies stars having fun on TV.

Intelligence was better than I expected and I will continue watching.

Even Killer woman was not bad. Tricia Helfer was solid and the show kind of remind me of Kill Bill, maybe its the woman who killed the bride !

A good week for me in TV land !

Community has been better than season 4, sure, but I still kind of think to myself "probably should've just ended after season 4 or even 3".. plus is it just me or have the colors been totally weird? they're more subdued and low light and don't pop as much.

yeah, whoever these 'people' in People's Choice Awards must be doing some HEEEEAVY drugs because I don't agree with 3/4ths of the winner.

i'm just saying it looks totally different than the first four seasons. i know what the show is about even though I think most of the storylines in season 2 and later are just meant to have people talk about it and nothing else. i'll never understand why people are so vehemently protective over this show like it can do no wrong.

5x01 was darker in purpose, to showcase how it came from a dark place and was getting it's sh-- together. 5x02 was "Regular Community". I refuse on saying anything about "the colors" of episode 5x03. They use the filters to set the mood, like they always did, and they've had some pretty masterpiece episodes on its run so, yeah, maybe we're protective and like to "talk about it". What exactly is entertainment if not something crafted so people get into it and talk about it even while no watching it? To me, that's what defines a truly great tv show (or a truly bad one). Community has had its fair share of flunks, and I'm not even talking about Season 4, but I'm "vehemently protective" of it because of those memorable episodes that left me awed.

Teen Wolf! Such a good return and I will never be upset about more Stiles.
Justified. Excellent. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if Rachel or Tim said something sassy to Raylan just once in the episode.
Person of Interest and the new assortment of villains. This show just doesn't know how to slow down and I love it.
Parks! It had an adorable 100th episode and is such a perfect little show.

Have to agree with Top Chef. I don't blame Nick for Stephanie going home but when there are six people left in the competition, there should be no immunity. Producer error sucks.

FTW: "P.S.: He's Not Even Serbian"; Laurence O'Donnell's criticism of the reporters covering Chris Christie's press conference.

WTF: The way MSNBC's shows didn't pick up on any of the points Laurence O'Donnell had made the night before about the George Washington Bridge story; the close of Friday's All In with people from different states vying for the title of most corrupt state. At that point, you're just talking about New Jersey to be talking about New Jersey, plus why would you joke about the corruption in your state on national TV, especially when you're a sitting congressman?

WTF/FTW: MSNBC trotting out Barbara Buono to talk about the bridge scandal. Is this some sort of mea culpa on the network's part because of the way they bad-mouthed her immediately after the New Jersey gubernatorial race (e.g., "Who is Barbara Buono?", "If the Democrats wanted to win the New Jersey governor's race, they wouldn't have nominated Barbara Buono.")? And yet, what she's saying doesn't sound much different from the little I heard from her during the campaign when the media was trying to tell me how reasonable and cuddly Christie was. It may have been awkward, but it also may have been interesting to have Representative Buono and Steve Karnacki (who admitted to having once worked for one of the principals involved in the bridge scandal) on at the same time.

FTW- Elementary resolving the Detective Bell Transfer storyline. Granted, I kinda hoped we would see a few more episodes with Bell's new job before this episode aired, but I do like how Bell finally got over blaming Sherlock for his injury thanks to a wonderfully written "I used to be messed up myself but thanks to my friends I'm better now" speech. I always like Detective Bell-centered episodes ("Details" is my favorite Elementary ep) and this one is no exception.

-Dracula- Renfield standing up to Dracula, his boss, and actually having an all-out fist fight with him to get him under control after Drac had a temper tantrum and decided to do something extremely stupid. I love Renfield and how, though loyal, he isn't a mindless "yes" man that most of his incarnations portray him as. If Dracula is making an idiot of himself, Renfield is the first one to call him out about it, and if Dracula decides to do something that puts himself in mortal danger, Renfield is there to act as the cool head and would even put himself in physical danger to make sure his boss is safe, like he did here. It's obvious that Drac values Renfield, having saved him a few episodes ago after he was caught and tortured by the Order's thugs, and this episode pretty much shows why Renfield is irreplaceable.

WTF- The Big Bang Theory TOTALLY dropped the ball on an interesting storyline. Last week we had Penny drunkenly propose to Leonard and Leonard awkwardly refusing, ending with Leonard contemplating the possible fallout with the refusal... BUT NOTHING REALLY HAPPENS AFTER THIS! The promos said that this episode changes everything, but what really happened was that Penny quit her job at the Cheesecake Factory to pursue acting 100%. Sheldon supported the decision wholeheartedly, but Leonard thought it was a bad idea. This would've made for some good watching if not for the asinine B and C plots. Amy had a not-so-secret admirer in the form of a giant gemologist, and Bernadette and Stewart the Lonely Comic Store Owner go to a rival's shop to replace a comic Bernie accidentally burned. These two subplots just seemed really out of place, in Amy's case because Sheldon wasn't around and in Bernie's case because she is a married woman and Stewart crushes on any girl that pays attention to him... but nothing happened between them. I would've thought Stewart would start crushing on Bernie after Bernie ranted about how Stewart was so much better than the rival, but nope, nothing. The C plot was totally unnecessary and awkward given that Bernie and Stewart have had like maybe 8 scenes together in the whole series and none of them were just the two of them. It would've been better if Amy, or, better yet, Penny were the ones who burned the comic, since Stewart went out with both of them and he's madly in love with Penny (who can be just as frightening as Bernadette but can back up her words with physical force if necessary.)

FTW:
- Killer Women and Intelligence were actually better than I thought. I'm not saying they were good, just that they were slightly better than what I thought they would be based on their trailers.
- The music in Killer Women. Did anyone else notice this? There were a couple of really well chosen tracks in the pilot.
- The Cougar Town opening title: "Season Five? Didn't see that coming." True that.


Whatever happens with the Ezra situation in the near future, it won't make any sense. If he is on the A Team or even A himself, many previous decisions he has made as Ezra will not fit into that narrative. And if he is not A, then why is he behaving the way he is? "Protecting the girls" is a reason I don't want to hear again. The producers have said that Ezra being on the A team is not a ruse, that it's not like with Toby who joined the team to protect the girls, but that he is actually part of the team. Are the producers going to take back that comment?

People ran election campaigns on social media sites, in particular Facebook, to convince people to come here and vote-refresh-vote over and over. Some people also used scripts to do this automatically. This was obvious in the kid animated category, where My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic got over 13 million votes, and the first letters of the top five shows spelled out MRGAY.
