Question: I've been mulling over the ending of The Killing for a week now. Up until the series finale (which is what it should be), I was convinced that the writers hadn't known who the killer would be when they started the series. This was always a pet peeve of mine with soap operas. How can you plot a murder without a murderer? The main problem with this is that the actor playing the murderer doesn't have the background knowledge to act his or her scenes. Though using twice as many episodes as they needed, I could sort of see in the finale how they were setting things up. To truly see if that's the case, I'd have to re-watch the first couple of episodes, which I don't want to do.
Yes, we must admit that the first few minutes of Bunheads were a little iffy (Michelle married her stalker! And we're supposed to be OK with that?). But by the end of the first episode, the ABC Family series hit its groove and started focusing on what it does best: heartfelt comedy, drama and dance! Still not convinced? Here are five reasons to give the fledgling series a chance — or at least a spot on your DVR queue.
KNOPE CAN DO! On a thoroughly charming Parks and Recreation finale, eternal idealist Leslie Knope achieves her lifelong dream of being voted into office — and Amy Poehler captures every nail-biting emotion, from overwhelmed pride at casting a vote for herself to premature despair, an ultimately genuine joy and gratitude to all the friends who made this possible. Her opponent Bobby Newport isn't the only one who's relieved — and geez, show, Paul Rudd is such an adorable boob (the way he stares at a boom mike like it's a chew toy), can't he stick around as a mascot or something? Pawnee City Council may not be Washington, D.C. (where Ben appears to be heading, casting a long-distance pall over the celebration), and a 21-vote margin of victory isn't much of a mandate, but who cares when you have friends like a whisky-laden Ron Swanson, who tells Leslie when she's down that the team rallied to her cause because "that's what you do when you care about someone: You support 'em win, lose or draw." Awww.
Apparently, little Rory Gilmore grew up to be a 1960s housewife in Cos Cob.
On Sunday's Mad Men, Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel popped up as Beth Dawes, the wife of insurance salesman Howard Dawes, with whom Pete Cambell (Vincent Kartheiser) regularly commutes to work. When Pete finds Beth stranded at the train station — and with Pete knowing that Howard is shacking up for the night with his "side dish" in the city — he offers to take Beth to her home...
I feel like I'd follow Melissa McCarthy to the ends of the earth — and not just in terms of television watching. I first discovered her in a bit part when she stole the scene she was in with Scott Wolf (or was it Jay Mohr?) in a little movie called Go. She didn't come back onto my radar until Gilmore Girls, but what a great way to make a return. Her adorable and somewhat neurotic and accident-prone Sookie St. James was a revelation. Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel weren't half bad either. Kidding, kidding. They were awesome. I loved that show. Next she spent some time with Christina Applegate on Samantha Who? and now she's where she belongs: in a lead role. It's about time.
Lauren Graham played a single mom on Gilmore Girls and currently plays one on Parenthood — so would she ever want to settle down in real life? Perhaps.
