It's been five years since CBS premiered Harper's Island, and in the words of another famous island inhabitant, "We have to go back!" A woefully underrated horror murder mystery, the 13-episode series, which is available on Netflix, follows a group of family and friends that heads to the titular locale for a destination wedding, only to learn that there's a killer among them. At least one character gets whacked each episode, always in spectacular fashion. It was awesome, and it got the shaft (no pun intended). CBS canceled the show after moving it from Thursdays to Saturdays, natch, but if they know what's good for them, they'd bring back the dead.

Annie's back — and blonde! — and she's got a
The last we saw Annie (Piper Perabo) on Covert Affairs, she had killed Henry in Hong Kong and was seemingly on her way back to Washington, D.C. It turns out, she took a little detour.
When Season 5 premieres Tuesday (10/9c, USA), Annie will finally make her way back to the DPD after four months away, but she won't be sharing many details, other than to declare that she's ready to get back to work. Fortunately for her, she immediately gets thrust into a case involving a familiar face and a couple of new ones, including Ryan McQuaid (Nic Bishop), a Navy SEAL-turned-private contractor billionaire who may or may not have a secret agenda, and Borz Altan (Michael A.
