"A win would be nice. Another f--- up could be fatal."
Those are Saul Berenson's words to his CIA colleague Dar Adal around the midpoint of Homeland's Season 3 premiere — and they are almost an understatement.
Homeland boss on "quieter" Season 3: Carrie's questioning herself at every turn
Picking up nearly two months after a car bomb nearly wiped out the entire CIA, Saul (Mandy Patinkin), Carrie (Claire Danes) and the rest of what's left of the agency are being scrutinized by a Senate Intelligence Committee led by Sen. Lockhart (Tracy Letts). As if the hearings weren't enough pressure, Saul also wrestles with whether or not to green-light a complicated mission that many at the CIA feel is the appropriate retaliation for the terrorist attack at Langley...
If Walter White doesn't die on Sunday's Breaking Bad series finale, that's just fine with me.
That's not to say I'm rooting for Walt (Bryan Cranston) to storm into the neo-Nazi's meth-making compound full of anti-hero machismo and mow down Todd (Jesse Plemons), Jack (Michael Bowen) and maybe even Jesse (Aaron Paul) with a hail of M60 bullets. I'm by no means advocating that, after all the horrible things Walt has done in the name of money and power, he still deserves to win. I'm just saying he doesn't have to lose...

Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic
[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 6 premiere of Castle. Read at your own risk.]
As promised, the Season 6 premiere of Castle wasted very little time resolving its Season 5 cliff-hanger.
After Beckett (Stana Katic) received an offer to work in Washington D.C., Castle (Nathan Fillion) became furious that Beckett kept the interview process a secret from him. But just when it seemed the pair was moving in different directions, Castle surprised Beckett — and viewers — by proposing! So, how did Beckett respond? ...
CBS is trying something a little different with its new drama Hostages.
When CBS introduced it in May, executives called the show — a thriller about Ellen Sanders (Toni Collette), a surgeon who, on the night before she's set to operate on the president, is taken hostage with her family by an FBI agent-turned-terrorist named Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott) who wants the POTUS dead — a "limited series."

It's a phrase that was thrown around a lot during the network upfronts, and it seems to have meant different things to different people. Is it a one-and-done miniseries? Is it the next American Horror Story-like anthology series? For the brains behind Hostages, it simply boils down to numbers.
