Zane Holtz and D.J. Cotrona
With Cinemax's grungy cult hit Banshee preparing to close shop for its second season this Friday, fans of grindhouse pulp may want to go searching for the fledgling cable El Rey Network, where a 10-episode series version of the 1996 crime-horror hybrid From Dusk Till Dawn begins wreaking bloody mischief.
Robert Rodriguez, who founded El Rey, returns to his breakout genre roots, directing and writing the stylized pilot episode of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series (Tuesday, 9/8c), which reintroduces the bank-robbing Gecko brothers: the suave Seth (D.J. Cotrona) and psycho loose-cannon Richie (Zane Holtz), who's beset by monstrous visions during a routine stop in a dusty roadside liquor store in Texas, setting off a chain of violent events that will eventually include a run-in with vampires.
Watch out, criminals! Don Johnson returns to the small screen as another lawman.
Rob Lowe, Rashida Jones
Emotions have been running high lately on NBC's best Thursday comedies. Saying goodbye to beloved characters can have that effect. Last week, Community sent Abed's playmate Troy (Donald Glover) off to sail the world with LeVar Burton, but not before staging one last epic stunt that turned Greendale into Lava World. This week, the focus shifts to a more grounded yet fictional Indiana — where, incidentally, there is an actual Greendale (I grew up there) — as Pawnee prepares a going-away bash for Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) and Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones) on Parks and Recreation that may not be as surreal as Community's but compensates with a reservoir of genuine emotion and character-rich moments.

Last Resort co-creator Shawn Ryan knows he could stand to gain more viewers. Thus far, the show has averaged just 7.8 million viewers and a 1.9 in the demo. Fortunately, he thinks Thursday's episode (8/7c, ABC) is an engaging hour, both for fans who have already sampled the show and newcomers who are curious about diving in.

First up, sorry for missing last week's episode. As I mentioned, I was out in L.A. at the fall TV previews and watching it live was impossible. Glad to be back though!
On this week's episode of True Blood, the vampire war has begun, and it only took nine episodes to get there! Unfortunately, there are a few traitors in our midst, so when it's time to choose sides, there are a few surprises. In more promising news, the writers have obviously been reading my recaps, because they decided to streamline a whole bunch of plotlines into one this week. Loose ends were tied, and just a few cogent narrative threads remains. Well done, writers! I knew you could do it!
