Sarah Shahi, Paige Turco and Taraji P. Henson
Last Thursday, I was honored to moderate a panel at the "Made in NY" PaleyFest at New York's Paley Center, celebrating the third season of CBS's terrific cyber-thriller Person of Interest. Before the discussion with many of the show's cast and executive producer Jonathan Nolan, there was a screening of this week's episode (Tuesday, 10/9c) — the best of the season to date, and a fairly pivotal one — that is especially enjoyable in how it showcases the series' fabulous femmes fatales. With the target du jour a chameleon Casanova, the women must act as nightclub and social-media bait: an off-duty and glammed-up Carter (Taraji P. Henson), the ferociously trigger-happy Shaw (Sarah Shahi, hilariously playing against her natural beauty) and Reese's favorite fixer, the alluring Zoe Morgan (recurring co-star Paige Turco). A CBS contact refers to them as "Finch's Angels," and if they want to spin themselves off, that would be fine by me. A scene where the three ladies of the evening compare their weaponry is a riot. So's a later scene in which Shaw reflects on her disdain for relationships. (When I asked Shahi if Shaw has a soft side, she wasted no time in barking a "No.")
Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo
For now, NCIS has bid farewell to Ziva David.
After Cote de Pablo abruptly decided to leave TV's most-watched drama this summer, producers had to find a way to tie up Ziva's narrative in short order. The result is Tuesday's episode, in which Ziva's will-they-won't-they partner-in-crime-solving Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) goes to Israel to find her. Once he tracks her down, he begs her to return to Washington with him, but to no avail. She leaves him on the runway with a tearful goodbye and a long kiss.

Back on November 14 2006 when we saw the future lives of the NipTuck characters I mostly praised the episode since it was such a pleasant change of pace What I wasnt thinking at the time was how unfortunate it would become as a viewer that we know exactly what will become of the characters So Julia got shot last week so what We know that she survives since she was in the future episode So Christian and Annie got in a car crash caused by paparazzi this week We knew immediately that theyd be OK since theyre also in that episode And now even after multiple knife stabs in his back by crazy Colleen at the very end even though blood was gushing out of his mouth Sean cant be dead he too was in that damn futuristic episode Of course one can argue that the episode-of-the-future couldve just been someones dream but it wasnt presented that way when it aired so I guess I have the right to bitch about it right Imagine how shocking and suspenseful that stabbing
That ending was a real bang wasnt it Oh Julia If youre going to buy a gun for self-protection protect yourself by hiding it from others All Eden the skank needed to do was find that damn gun in Julias bedroom I knew that as soon as Julia told Eden that she figured everything out that Eden was the one who was the cause of her mysterious illness Eden wasnt going to react in a good way How about the timing of Julia receiving her follicle lab results that clearly included words like exposure to high dosages of mercury and contaminated foods at the exact same time that Eden was serving her yet another piece of fruitcake Bingo Julia Ill take it to my room Julias inner thought Ill send it to the lab in Virginia Olivia sure was an understanding lover earlier sending Julias hair sample to the lab even after Julia told her she was having an affair with Christian I was expecting a different reaction There was Olivia all happy and peppy and burst
As Ive been quite verbal about in the past I was a huge Knots Landing fan So after reading about this episode and then seeing the coming attractions last week I was needless to say excited I mean how could I not be Donna Mills was portraying a rich Beverly Hills socialite named Lulu Grandiron and she and her friends married wealthy high-powered execs divorced them and then took all their money And adding to a true Knots fans delight one of those friends Annette was played by Joan Van Ark All they needed was Michele Lee and it wouldve been more of a complete set But Im thinking that Michele was asked but declined since the four rich women were all plastic surgery fanatics and maybe Michele didnt want to admit shes had work done Those two other roles were filled by women who co-starred on other prime-time soaps in the 80s Shari Belafonte shes dropped the Harper from Hotel played Catherine in the really bad wig and Deborah Shelton from Dallas was Marla wi
