The '61 Lincoln convertible has pulled up to the curb once more and Vincent Chase's crew is climbing out for a seventh season of Entourage (Sunday, June 27, 10:30/9:30c, HBO), but the bonds between the party-hardy boys and the women who love them will grow — and, in one case, be tested.

Dania Ramirez by Trae Patton/NBC
Jeers to Heroes for blowing the chance to kill off the season's most annoying new character, Maya (Dania Ramirez). When Sylar shot the overwrought refugee in the otherwise thrilling "finale," I let out a yelp of excitement because maybe I'd never have to see that nasty bleeding-eyes effect again. Then Suresh gave Maya an injection of Claire's magic blood, and she came back to life. It was cool when the serum revived HRG, but does anybody really die on Heroes anymore? Next they'll tell us Niki escaped the explosion and Nathan survived the assassination attempt! Read and react to Bruce's opinions on My Name Is Earl, Dirty Sexy Money and more!

Episode Recap: "Powerless"Im trying to figure out what to write, so Im going over my notes and the last thing I wrote was: "the pet. bro. are so cut"
then Nathan gets shot! WTF.I knew it was coming. A political assasination was predictable at 9:59pm.Possible Spoiler: This is what Ive heard of the fallen heroes: dead, uncertain and healed. We know Maya was healed. Im glad she survived. Personally, Id pick Nathan over her, but the best way to fix a character problem is to get rid of the old and bring in the new. Many have complained about Maya, but you have to imagine her characters possibilities. Shes a weapon of mass destruction and pissed. I cant wait to see her in action. She and Sylar will meet again.So, is it Niki or Nathan that is uncertain? Although Peters healing abilities (and those who've already received blood transfusions from Adam and Claire) are still questionable. Nathan looked like a gone...
The Haitian repaid his debt by saving Peter. Jimmy Jean-Louis by Chris Haston/NBC
Episode Recap: "Four Months Ago"Bonsoir mes amis! Leah Friedman (Friday Night Lights, among other blogs) in for Casey tonight, and I figured I'd stick with the Montréal theme. I'm thrilled to be filling in for her for the second in what will hopefully become a series of great Heroes episodes. We all know about the griping (and yes, I've done my own fair share of it this fall) about how the season started out, but between last week and this week, I'm hoping we can all agree that the show is back on track. It was certainly a subtle episode by Heroes standards; more along the lines of last season's "Company Man" than anything else, and as a character study of the Petrellis, Elle and the Sanders family, it worked well most of the time.First off, thank you Tim Kring for finally revealing just how in the hell Peter ended up in Ireland. We already knew that Nathan saved New York from Peter, but in dueling bouts of self-sacrifice, Peter rescued a falling, burning Nathan and deli...

Episode Recap: The LineHeroes has never made me lose interest, but it did get off to a slow start. I knew tonight would be a good episode. OK, I hoped tonight would be a great episode. It was the lead-in to November sweeps. However, I didnt want to set my expectations too high. Ive noticed a growing trend with network television: they build up the months of November, February and May for Nielsen ratings, and then leave us hanging. Sometimes, the episodes that air during those sweeping months live up to the abundance of promos, previews and annoying scroll lines under everything you watch. Other times, a ferry crashes and we are left with the letters WTF on our minds. That being said, lets recap.Weve all been through high school hell, and Ive watched the genius of Tina Fey's Mean Girls, but do people like the cheerleading captain really exist? If so, then she got what she deserved. (When she wrote the number of pounds to lose on the girls' f...
