There's not a lot of time for character development in the pilot episode of Crisis, NBC's hostage thriller that premieres Sunday. The first hour is more preoccupied with immersing viewers into the action and getting a couple of major twists out of the way than delving into the depths of its major players.
But here's what we do know: A bus of children is taken hostage by a group of highly trained criminals while on a field trip. What do the bad guys want? It's unclear. But the children's parents all hold positions of power in Washington, D.C., ranging from the CEO of a major corporation (Gillian Anderson) to the president of the United States. There's also a nearly unrecognizable Dermot Mulroney playing a shlubby parent chaperone who's an embarrassment to his daughter, but who defies expectations when it comes to the events that unfold. And in a made-for-TV coincidence, the no-nonsense FBI agent in charge of the case, Susie Dunn (Rachael Taylor), is the estranged sister of Anderson's character, Meg Fitch.

There's a crisis on the set of Crisis: Although the NBC drama is filming indoors on this late-January day, the high temperature outside the Chicago set is zero degrees (and with the wind chill, it feels like 30 below). Even inside, it's frosty, and star Gillian Anderson huddles for warmth by wrapping herself in a full-length parka between takes.

Just about the best news I heard all week: CBS's renewal of the splendid The Good Wife for a sixth season, among a ton of other pick-ups. If the month or more of special-Sunday distractions (Super Bowl, Olympics, Oscars) caused you to drift away, now's a great time for "Opting Back In." Which happens to be the name of a keynote speech Alicia (Julianna Margulies) is nervously preparing for the annual American Bar Association powwow in New York City — an occasion allowing for a terrific running gag involving new Mayor Bill De Blasio (Sunday, 9/8c).

Grey's Anatomy will hit its 10th season this fall — as well as its milestone 200th episode — so it's time to start looking at where these doctors are going to end up. We've watched the Fab
Five Three grow from young, and sometimes cocky, interns to confident attendings running (and in some cases, owning) the hospital. But what's next for these docs as they transition into full-blown leaders? We've put together a wish list of what we hope is next for the docs of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital:
Camilla Luddington, Justin Chambers
Could love be in the air for Alex and Jo?
Aside from the hospital having to close its doors, that's been the big question on Grey's Anatomy this season as Alex (Justin Chambers) has grown closer to intern Jo (Camilla Luddington) — whom, to be honest, many fans hated in the beginning of the season. But with the help of Alex, Jo has gone from an amalgamation of the worst traits of the Fab Five to settling into a less neurotic character that we could maybe, possibly get on board with.
