[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from Sunday's Homeland. Read at your own risk.]
If something has seemed off about this season of Homeland, there's a good reason for it: That's exactly what the writers wanted!
Homeland postmortem: Brody's Back — but for how long?
"I was an amateur magician when I was a kid, and my favorite magic trick was always the one in which the magician convinces the audience that he's made a mistake," executive producer Alex Gansa tells TVGuide.com. That's what we were going for this season. [We wanted the audience thinking,] 'How are they going to dig themselves out of this hole? ... They're killing the series right in front our eyes!' And yet you lay down that final card, and you realize that the magician, the writers, have been one step ahead."
Sunday's episode revealed the writers' magic trick...
Ruthless Chicago mayor Tom Kane (Kelsey Grammer) would've been smart to recall the adage "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." In Season 2 of the dark political drama Boss, Kane will face the ire of the many women in his life whom he's scorned — not to mention betrayed and humiliated.
As the season opens...
The tagline for the second season of Starz's Boss claims "power consumes everyone" — and it looks like it's going to be a feeding frenzy for Chicago Mayor Tom Kane and his inner circle.

When viewers last saw Kane (Golden Globe winner Kelsey Grammer), he had...
Nancy Botwin's past finally caught up to her.
The matriarch of one of the most dysfunctional families on TV kicked off the eighth and final season of Weeds on the ground, covered in blood, having been shot in the head. There's no way the Showtime series would kill off star Mary-Louise Parker — not yet, at least — but it raises the question: Who would want to kill Nancy?
Weeds to end after upcoming season
Well, I mean, who wouldn't really, right? Was it...
The 2012 presidential campaign is just heating up, but there's another juicy political battle taking place on the streets of Chicago on Starz's Boss.
The drama, which won Kelsey Grammer the Golden Globe for best actor in a drama series this past January, returns this summer for Season 2, and if you haven't caught up on

Once is not enough. Sometimes a second look, or a second episode, is necessary to convince a skeptic that a show is worth taking a risk on. So it is with ABC's dazzling but dauntingly precious Once Upon a Time (Sunday, 8/7c), which back when I was considering it for Fall Preview left me wondering: "Is this ambitiously whimsical fantasia the next Pushing Daisies cult fave or the next Eastwick insta-flop? (Either way, it will likely be an uphill climb to happily ever after.) It would be easier to love if it weren't so convoluted and campy."
But then ABC made another episode (the third, airing Nov. 6) available for review, and I started to find myself enchanted and beguiled, ready to curl up with more chapters of this fractured fairy tale. First, though, you have to digest the premise, and the overstuffed and often overripe pilot is a lot to swallow. We begin in a lavishly rendered fairy-tale land ...
I'm not the official TV Guide blogger for Moonlight, but I just wanted to start off tonight's Ghost Whisperer post by saying how much I enjoyed watching both shows back-to-back. Ghost Whisperer + Moonlight = Freaky Friday on CBS, and I think they're a perfect supernatural fit. Now then, on with the show!Welcome to The Underneath?At (last) season's end, I felt that Melinda's return from death would alter her connection to the afterlife, making it more malevolent than she's prepared to deal with. Now, at (this) season's beginning, my initial feelings concerning the crossroads on which Mel stands, is that Grandview is turning into a similar place to Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Hellmouth. Not quite as... Hellmouth-y, but the similarities between "the underneath" getting ready to burst at any time in Grandview, and Sunnydale's Hellmouth hurling all varieties of demons and vampires from underground can't be denied. The difference seems to be that Grandview may be a kinder, gentler wellspri...
Alyssa Milano by John Sciulli/WireImage.com
Alyssa Milano has landed the lead in the Lifetime movie Wisegal, based on the true story of a widow who gets sucked into her boyfriend's life of crime. Oh, and lives to regret it. Sorry, I thought that part went without saying. Lifetime has also OK'd the production of a pilot for Long Island Confidential, a drama about a homicide detective who returns to her old stomping grounds only to find the ghosts of her past still alive and well. Sounds like a job for the soon-to-be-unemployed Julianna Margulies to me. (Her fall drama, Canterbury's Law, is that bad.) And on the big screen, Virginia Madsen is being joined in the spooky A Haunting in Connecticut by three new costars: Martin Donovan, late of Weeds, will play her husband; Veronica Mars alum Kyle Gallner, their son; and Elias Koteas, their friendly neighborhood exorcist.

Mary-Louise Parker, The Robber Bride
Oh, how this reporter loves himself some Mary-Louise Parker. Most recently spied marketing Mary Jane as the Golden Globe-winning star of Showtime's Weeds, she resurfaces Saturday at 8 pm/ET in Oxygen's The Robber Bride, playing Zenia, an enigmatic enchantress who gave many people a reason to kill her. But who, if anyone, actually did her in? TVGuide.com leapt at the chance to speak with Parker about this TV-movie potboiler, peddling Weeds, and her upcoming gig as a very kind of different bride — Brad Pitt's!
TVGuide.com: Wow. I'm talking to you. My first note here is to "fawn over her like a fool."Mary-Louise Parker: Oh, wow! That's so nice! I could use it....
