Welcome to May sweeps (albeit still in April) and, more important, the countdown to the end of the official broadcast season on May 23. Meaning an end, for now, to those pesky repeats and the start-and-stop scheduling of favorite shows. Reason enough to celebrate? Wait until you see what NBC has in store for you tonight (or at least for those choosy few who gravitate toward the network's better Thursday night comedies).
When a new show comes along that blows you away with its risk-taking originality, like NBC's haunting Awake (see my review of the pilot episode here), it's almost inevitable that one of the first ...

It may seem like the crime of the week, but it's really much more. On this Thursday's episode of CBS's The Mentalist, FBI agent Susan Darcy (Catherine Dent) is back on the scene and conducting an investigation into the murder of a woman whose family has statehouse connections.

TVGuide.com has learned that The Shield star Catherine Dent will appear in multiple Season 4 episodes as Special Agent Susan Darcy, a seasoned and assertive FBI agent who often downplays her intelligence to get what she wants without causing friction. Even so, she's sure to rub a few people the wrong way: As we previously reported, her character will but heads with Patrick Jane (Simon Baker) and Agent Lisbon (Robin Tunney) when she takes over one of their cases...
Lie to Me
Did you ever wonder what would happen if The Shield's Capt. David Aceveda and Officer Danny Sofer were married? Well, viewers will get to see the actors behind those characters as a longtime couple — as well as some other Shield alums together again — on Lie to Me.
Cast members of The Shield set to reunite on Lie to Me
"It's just a fun alternate universe with all these people you're accustomed to seeing in a certain environment," Shield creator and Lie to Me executive producer Shawn Ryan tells TVGuide.com of the stunt episode (Monday at 9/8c on Fox). "It was different, but I think everyone was just really happy to see one another again. I think it meant more on a personal level even than a professional level. We had a very tight-knit group on that show, so to be able to reunite ... was very nice."
Ryan says he immediately began looking for ways to bring Shield actors to his new show when Season 2 began, but then got greedy...

Man what a season Cant the final season just start next week Or cant we just fast-forward to March 2008 right now Leave Christmas in just for the heck of itAgain The Shield threw me for a loop I was expecting either Shane or a member of the Mackey family to bite the big one and none of them did I was expecting Vic to get his job back but not by exposing the Mexican mob and I certainly didnt expect him to walk out of his hearing As Ive said before the twists and turns are what make this show so great We start off with a bang right where last week left off with Vic and Aceveda doing a dance I loved what happened between the two of them in this episode Vic tries to blackmail Aceveda by showing him the picture Then David turns around and sends a lawyer to tell Vic hes being sued and will lose everything Then Vic goes back to Pazuela and gets the memory card which forces Acevedas hand But instead of just trying to get his job back Vic teams up with Aceveda t
With only three episodes left in this season this week we get our setup episode for the final two Dialogue-heavy and bloodshed-light we get some more insight into Shane and the Armenians and find out that Hernan is not dead after all Shanes in the middle of this gas-station murder and is talking to the daughter of the Armenian mob boss Shanes talking to her like she doesnt know anything but clearly shes more on her game than he thinks And soon she might be in charge herself since Pop is on his deathbed Meanwhile shes paying Shane to look into some apartment robberies and he finds a nice hooker whos able to give him a little bit of intel on the people who broke into her place He gives it to her and she takes care of the problem herself She seems to have Shane wrapped around her finger now Man Shane just cant lay low for one minute and stay out of trouble can he After all this time we finally see Ronnies reaction to Shane
A big hearty handshake well not from Shane goes out to Alex OLoughlin aka Detective Kevin Hiatt as he begins his tour of duty in Farmington Boy he has no clue what hes being thrown into This was a nice semi-setup episode to get us ready for what we saw in the preview For the first time this season chasing Lems killer wasnt No 1 on the list We saw new drama unfold and even got back to the slaughterhouse briefly while the Lem situation still stewed in the background a bit Of course thats not to say that the strike team was thinking about Lem at all Corinne brings him up with this dream of hers more on that later and a box of books that Lem bought arrives at the barn Plus the new guy is a painful reminder that the team is one short Right away Hiatt learns how Vic operates when hes told to stay down as Vic storms a house This doesnt sit well with Hiatt but butting heads with Vic is certainly not the path to go down I love the fact that Claudette is still
He killed Lem Dont you remember his body his face You think you could just forget that huh Dont you think he deserves to die for what he didThose words screamed at Shane Vendrell by Vic Mackey helped mold a scene that had to be the most powerful one of the entire series Wow You knew Vic was going to do something harsh to Guardo if he found him but wow I mean wow I know Im saying that word a lot right now but that one word wow really sums up the boldness the intensity the determination the shock the brutality the hatred I could go on forever trying to describe the meeting of Guardo and Vic but nothing could do it justice so I choose wowThis whole season you could see the anger in Vics eyes and you could smell the revenge coming but despite everything thats happened over the previous five seasons even my eyes were wide open in shock this time around Guardo hung by a rope getting brutally beating by Vic with a monstrous metal ch
