FTW vs. WTF: The TV Week in Review (November 2)

Wow, 2013 is just flying by! Can you believe it's already November? Wait, it's November? OH NO we forgot to pick the kids up from soccer practice... in July! BRB gotta run. In the meantime, you know how it goes: Here are the good and bad things from the last seven days of television!




Sesame Street's perfect Homeland parody


Wherefore art thou, Sergeant Baaaaaa-rody?



Tim & Eric's "Haunted House"

The pair of good ol' yukster weirdos and their guest Zach Galifianakis spent the first 15 minutes of their half-hour special staging/being victimized by an absurd haunted-house prank, and being their good ol' yukster weirdo selves. Then they spent the second 15 minutes doing an "aftershow" to break down what we'd just seen. Thanks for being you, Tim & Eric!



The Orphan Black writers' room got spooky and goofy

We're feeling empty without BBC America's sci-fi clone drama in our lives (it's currently between seasons), but we're at least calmed by the fact that the stories for Season 2 are being broken. Proof? This whiteboard with... Halloween pranks scrawled all over it? Among the things we can expect early next year: Paul becomes a vampire, Kira is revealed to be a demon, and more. Bonus points for the Ginger Snaps reference (Tatiana Maslany appeared in the cult horror film directed by Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett). 



The Good Wife delivers one of the year's best episodes of television

Alicia and Cary's plot to leave Lockhart/Gardner came to a head as Will learned of their plans to form Florrick, Agos & Associates—and to leave with L/G's top clients. Personal and professional betrayals, ethical quagmires, and ruthless legal maneuvers all unspooled over the course of a wholly magnificent hour, and were complemented by a pitch-perfect score and masterful directing. If you're not watching The Good Wife, now is a perfect time to start, and start you should.



Sherlock learned the importance of partnership on Elementary

After Sherlock solved a case that Joan had been asked to look over, she fittingly gave him an earful about how the solve isn't the only thing that matters when you're working with someone—especially when that someone is still learning the art of deduction. Realizing his error, Sherlock apologized in an incredibly humble manner: He gave Joan a trunk full of cases that had him stumped. Hopefully they'll help Joan sharpen her skills while also providing Elementary with a new avenue for potential stories.



The witches on The Originals are actually interesting!

After years of boring witch plots on The Vampire Diaries, its spin-off found a way to make witches worthwhile, by writing them as child murderers! Okay, they were like 16. But still! Way more compelling than dead ghosts following their friends around and whining about their plight. Plus there's the whole civil war among the witches themselves, and the fact that Davina may have just switched allegiances because Elijah is just. that. awesome. Keep up the good work, show!



The Returned on Sundance Channel scares our hearts

In its Halloween-night debut, The Returned proved how elastic the "horror" genre can be with a premiere that was equal parts creepy and sentimental. The inventive pilot episode was a slam dunk of pathos, gorgeous visuals, and drama to the tune of 11-year old twins telepathically sharing the loss of virginity moments before a deadly bus crash. Seriously, watch this one!  



Reign is just getting better and weirder and more complex

A heroine with beauty and brains and a million fantastic prom dresses makes this series totally rule, in that utterly ridiculous way The CW does so well. If you haven't yet sampled the network's most epic teen drama about 16th century European politics, then what've you been doing with your life?!



Tyreeeeeeeeeeeeese!

One of the comic series' best characters finally got to show off his carpentry skills on a zombie swarm, and it was RADICAL. Please hammer, DO hurt them.



Dracula's Lady Jane is a dream woman

NBC's new take on of the legendary fanged one includes a big-breasted vampire slayer who doesn't know she's porking the monster she's hunting (she thinks she's making whoopie with an American businessman). She loves sex, opera, magic tricks, cutting the heads off vampires, sword-training in tights, keeping vampires locked in cages, and tight leather bodices. HUBBA HUBBA! To the tune of Rick James' "Mary Jane": We're in love with Lady Jane, she's my main thannnng!



Big Chang-es at SportsCenter

Community's Ken Jeong stopped by ESPN's flagship show this week to profess his love for Shane Battier—and to live out all of our dreams.



Saturday Night Lives's fake Wes Anderson flick


We didn't catch Edward Norton's SNL in time to add this to last week's story, but if you haven't seen it yet, it's still worth a look. Two tickets to The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders, please!



All the old horror movies we got to watch on television in the last couple weeks


Did anyone else forget Kelly Rowland was in Freddy vs. Jason and then bam, there she was, lighting up our lives? All young pop stars should be legally required to make cameos in slasher films.





Katherine Pierce the human died on The Vampire Diaries. But then she didn't.

We won't get into the whole death-is-meaningless-when-everyone-keeps-coming-back-from-the-dead debate, but we're having a difficult time processing the fact that Damon handed a human Katherine over to Silas so he could drink up all her blood and then properly die or whatever (seriously, that stupid and confusing cure storyline is the worst), but before we could properly mourn our queen, she came back to life even more pissed off. On the one hand, YAY Katherine! On the other, WTF?





Sabrina the Teenage Witch didn't like Salem the Cat

Sabrina the Teenage Witch star Melissa Joan Hart has revealed that she didn't get along with her furry co-star, and "doesn't do cats anymore" because she has bad memories of a set covered in cat food. As a very pro-cat staff, we're appalled. THIS explains it all, Melissa. Have fun with Joey Lawrence, we're going to snuggle up with Claws von Whiskerpants.



Laurel on Arrow has a drinking problem, and it's boring

We're glad that Arrow is following through with Laurel feeling guilty as a result of Tommy's death, not to mention the trauma of almost being killed by a doll-making serial killer, but her burgeoning alcoholism made "Crucible" feel like a Very Special Episode at times. It certainly doesn't help that Laurel is a dull character to begin with, but there just wasn't much to find compelling in the performance or the writing.



USA Network's original series exist in some sad, holiday-free bottle universe

After a week full of Halloween specials and costume-laden comedies—or at the very least, shows making passing references to carving pumpkins or TP-ing the high school—Covert Affairs and White Collar's bsns-as-usual approach just felt weird. And say, now that we think about it, USA seems to avoid getting festive in most of its shows, for any holiday. Ponder it long enough, and the situation lends itself to some pretty intense conspiracy theories along the lines of how Disney's Cars is actually about a post-apocalyptic world where machinery is sentient. No, really, that's a thing.



The Tomorrow People horribly underused Jason Dohring

You don't hire an actor like Dohring, who has a nice loyal fanbase courtesy of Veronica Mars, for a role like Killian McCrane. He was on screen for all of five seconds before he was eventually killed off. Thanks, Greg Berlanti! Thanks for being a dream killer.



This week on Hostages...

In a plot straight out of a sitcom, Ellen's sister Lauren made an unexpected visit to the Sanders household, where A HOSTAGE SITUATION WAS TAKING PLACE. This forced the family (and the hostage-takers) to pretend there was no such problem, and Lauren was like, "Why do you have a hole in your gut, Ellen's Husband?" and "Where are all the steak knives?" and "Why does your son's face look like he ran into a wall?" and "Why is this guy pointing a gun at me?" Then when she finally figured it out (Duncan tying her to a chair and blindfolding her was a dead giveaway), Ellen and Duncan called Lauren's shrink and had her committed as a crazy person. That's one crisis averted!



Okay, now President Fitz on Scandal is really, REALLY the worst


Most guys who are trying to get away from their wives for some alone time to themselves will retire to the bathroom or say they need to go out and buy milk or something. But when you're in charge of a super secret spy outfit so nefarious it's like the Voldemort of Washington D.C. (don't say its name!), even your simplest decisions can be influenced by your line of work. Enter the idea to have your spouse board a plane that a future president will shoot out of the air over Iceland. Yikes. 

Also: If we have to watch more of these Fitz and Olivia scenes, can Mellie and Jake take a trip to Poundtown? She's a "cold shrew" and he can't seem to lock down the girl he likes because, deep down, Olivia must hate herself (it's the only explanation). There are no two Scandal characters more deserving of the action (well, other than Harrison). The writers can call the episode "Dance of the Second Fiddles." It can be like Last Tango in Paris, except with people who don't make us roll our eyes.



How I Met Your Father?!!???!


Really, CBS? REALLY? We can't.

Most of your WTF's this week seemed especially petty, even for this site. "USA shows don't acknowledge holidays." Oh, boo-hoo. And I thought Watson was being petty and childish over what Sherlock did, especially since they were busy with a more pressing case.

FTW: The way Captain Gregson's dealt with her intruder in the cold opening of Elementary; Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood discussing 2001 on Up Late; a contributor to The Grio's referring to reporters logging onto the Heathcare.gov website and complaining about it as "performance art" on The Last Word.

FTW: I realize it already played in England but is Starz 'Dancing on the Edge' the best kept secret on television? Just a wonderful story filled with wonderful performances from the entire cast. People should be watching this gem. Jacqueline Bisset is so good. It also has scenes between John Goodman and Anthony Stewart Head - Dan Conner and Giles!!!

FTW: Dennis and Mac do 'Lethal Weapon Six' on 'Its Always Sunny'. This may be the best season ever for this show that started the FX universe.

I guess I always assumed the USA shows were never quite sure when episodes would air, given the strange revolving schedule, and thus couldn't be sure they'd need a specific holiday episode. Like they're trying to avoid the situation where Community wound up airing a Thanksgiving episode in February. But maybe it's just me who was never sure when Burn Notice was going to be on...

Comparing the two, Trophy Wife has more potential and can be "fixed". Back in the Game, though good, didn't have a lot of room to evolve and they would have had to change a lot of it to be "fixed". The 4 good characters in Terry, Cannon, her kid and her Friend are overshadowed by a lack luster overall plot and horrible secondary characters.

I read more about it and it really all comes down to this: Back in the Game is a Fox product while Trophy Wife was created by ABC Studios. ABC will make more money from a product it owns, even with lower ratings.

LMFAOFR! Sesame Street... WFT!?!?! Is it because there's no Muppets Show currently on the air that Jim Henson's Workshop can go completely bananas like this? And you know this was a sketch joke made specifically for the grow-ups, cause there's no way a 5-years old kid will get the reference... unless he/she has the sh*ttiest folks on Earth who let them watch Showtime.

Anyway... epically hilarious. Keep them coming.

Even though I've always wanted to know what has the mother been up to for the last 8 years, having no mystery & a already-known end forher & Ted is (not just pointless) boring.
where is the fun on that?
I dont know what the creators could do or what kind of characters they could come up with to make watch it & keep me hooked (asmuch as HIMYM).
In any case, that title is awful. "How I avoided your father for 9 seasons" sounds better.

I totally agree with what you guys mentioned about Scandal. They really should lay off the relationship of Fitz and Olivia for a while. Is that why you guys stop writing Scandal weekly review. Tired of F and O ? Scandal is a show that is more than that but seems the writers are afraid to lose the audience fixated on this plot. Thumbs up to the Kings of The Good Wife who DO NOT dance around Will and Alicia for along time.

My wife commented watching this season of Arrow that the actress playing Laura really looked very different (well, woman notice these things). Did she slim down especially her face or did she go for some surgery on her face?

And by the way, please re-edit your article. I know its French but having 11 year old losing virginity is even worse than having 15 years old do it, The fact is that they are 15. When Camille returns 4 years later, the other twin Lena is already 19 !

The Returned is one of the best recommended show by TV.com. You guys should do that more often. I would have totally missed this wonderful show if not for TV.com

Look, I know this is TV.com and that TV in general sucks, but I really used to look forward to this article every week and now it's so God-awful I can barely make it thru.

-I don't even think I blame the writers.

-I mean, they've got to write about something TV related.

-I think I almost feel sorry for them.

-Maybe they make a lot of money and it's ok, because who hasn't said, "if they paid me enough I'd so watch a USA original series.... I wonder if it's "an" USA original series? It is a vowel after all

-I wonder if they have to cycle thru writers every so often due to Scandal/Reign/Vampire Diaries/insert any CW show here making them so much dumber that they write things like "Chang-es at espn" about an asian guy.

-I bet they have some sort of retirement home for said dumbed-down tv.com writers. NO, NO... they just get them jobs writing for said shows. It makes perfect sense! Such a vicious cycle.

I mean seriously a Sabrina reference? Who are they writing this for?

You don't write 'an' before every word beginning with a vowel, only words beginning with a vowel sound. Although the letter U is technically a vowel, when spoken it is pronounced like 'yew' which doesn't begin with a vowel sound. It is perfectly correct to say 'a USA TV show...'.

Two great things not mentioned:

1. POI did it AGAIN--this time letting the Machine take us for a ride that came together better than any plan Hannibal Smith could've dreamed up. Jonathan Nolan and company, feel free to keep doing what you do for at least another decade or two.

2. Two words: Caity Lotz. I'd totally accept some lame plot device that would switch the name Dinah to being her character's real first name instead of Laurel's, if it means keeping her permanently on Arrow.

It's "SportsCenter", with a second S. Which I haven't watched in a decade, but that was pretty funny.

This was a week where I barely got to watch TV at all, insanely busy, but it was all for good reasons so it worked out.

Big props to The Good Wife's episode last week, a true home run, the best show on network proved itself again in a big way.

Yeah, SNL did pretty good with that Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders, even if it did run a little long.

Holy crap, I nearly spit milk out of my nose from that "Clarissa Explains it All" reference there. AND I WASN'T DRINKING MILK.

Yes, thank you, Laurel's substance abuse problem is the most boring thing possible, and once again Laurel gets the short end of the "why am I watching this" stick. Sad because the rest of the episode was fairly solid... for Arrow.

Royal Pains had a Christmas episode that was feature-length... that didn't involve any holidays. Oh USA Network, you hate the children.

Yeah, eat a dick CBS for "How I Met Your Father", you uncreative fucks. This is the show fans thought you were going to make HIMYM's ninth season about, and instead you decided we should suffer through a bottle episode that takes 11 hours to tell over the span of 8 months, then steal the rather middling idea and pervert it into the worst series possible.

To be fair to the Arrow writers of the trope, a better actor might make Laurel not only a believable alcoholic, but a sympathetic character overall. She's just the worst actor I've seen in a long time. Rebel Wilson makes it a tie for worst.

Katie Cassidy really seems to get the short end of the writing/directing/makeup stick on Arrow. I don't think she's that bad an actress, but they give her so little that it makes it hard to tell where the fault lies.

Rebel Wilson's awful American accent really harms her natural comedic stylings, but she always sells with her eyes so I give her more props than I could Katie Cassidy despite not enjoying her work at all.

I'll give you Rebel, her timing is much better as an Aussie than as an American, but not on Cassidy (that makeup is awful, isn't it?). She does have horrible arcs and lines, but a better actress would do something with them. I mean, Revolution is one trope after another, and some pretty godawful writing in season one, but Elizabeth Mitchell sells it no matter what idiotic thing her character is asked to do. Cassidy, by comparison, has only one expression on her face - there's barely a twitch as she transitions from one emotion to another - and clearly hasn't put any effort into understanding her character or creating a backstory to help her performance. We'll just have to agree to disagree :).

Agreed 100% - after watching Laurel for more than one season, I think it's partly bad casting. It's true that her story arcs stink and the decision to give her and Oliver such an angsty back story wasn't great because I don't see how they can reasonably move past it. But she lacks chemistry with all the characters, and I think a better actress would be able to salvage at least some of the material. People reference Supernatural where she's concerned but it doesn't change the fact that on Arrow she's just terrible - so bad that I usually check messages when she's onscreen. If this is Oliver's epic love, the show has a big problem. Also, her hair and makeup are heinous this season - kind of makes me feel sorry for the girl

Ok I loved Sabrina the Teenage Which and am seriously ALL ABOUT CATS! I would have a million cats if I wouldn't end up on Animal Hoarders and I think people are blowing this Melissa Joan Hart thing out of proportion! She said she wasn't a cat person and didn't like when they used to real cat in scenes for the show, it's not like she kicked the cat! Jesus!

Agreed, its not like she said she hated them. I'm not a lentil soup person, but that doesn't mean I hate it.

The Pete Holmes Show started on TBS this week - and I couldn't find any coverage about it on tv.com - the reason I'm interested would be the awesome (NSFW) Batman skits he has made for College Humor, such as =

Apparently there will be sketches like this -

FTW: Masters of Sex, where Virginia gets upgraded to "research assistant" and the doctor seems to get some funky upgrade too!

FTW: Warren on Trophy Wife's Halloween turn as Ellen DeGeneres!

Add in a few too many painkillers for toothache and the results were HILARIOUS! I'm keeping that episode for whenever I'm feeling down.

How did you miss including American Horror Story this week? It was wonderful. We now have an escaped No-Kylenstein, a witch counsel on a witch hunt, a voodoo curse raising the dead, an acid-faced witch, as well as a witch who just discovered she killed the wrong person. And Nan. We have Nan, and we love her.
