OK, so big ups to 90210 for handling the "Teddy is gay" storyline with as much elegance as is available to a high-school drama set in Beverly Hills. It's an impressive departure from previous TV teens who have struggled with their sexuality (the tennis stud is violently overcompensating to appear hetero, rather than bursting out of the closet with a heavily hyped kiss), but something went down last night that just wasn't right.

Community's Season 1 paintball episode — a parody of action-flick clichés — wasn't just loved by fans. "It remains the favorite among everyone here," says Alison Brie (Annie). So it's inevitable that the show wants to top itself, and they'll try with the October 14 episode, a spoof of Apollo 13. Jeff (Joel McHale) and his study-group pals participate in a flight-simulation competition with another local college; the gang gets stranded on board when the shuttle is towed from the school parking lot.

It's hard to imagine the father from My Three Sons in a mess like this. TV's newest widowed dad, Dexter Morgan, has left his kids at home to get the goods on a suspect he thinks may be a murderer. If that's true, Dex will probably have to kill the guy, just as he's offed 60-odd other psychos since the Showtime series began in 2006. Of course, Dexter himself might be the next casualty if he keeps the kids and their new nanny waiting much longer.
"It's definitely not easy balancing single fatherhood with the sort of affliction Dexter has," Michael C. Hall says with wry amusement on the set in Los Angeles, where Season 5 finds his character dealing with the aftermath of his wife Rita's death. In case you missed the most jaw-dropping twist in Dexter history, here's what went down in last season's finale...

No show asks us to take more of a leap of faith each week than Fox's Glee, the over-the-top high-school musical fantasy that can be sensationally entertaining and thoroughly irritating sometimes within the same episode — or even the same scene. (Flashback to last week's Britney Spears homage episode. A mess story-wise, but the music-video production numbers were a wow, and while the "Toxic" group number was a Fosse-esque highlight, the cutaways to the grotesque student-body euphoria were, in a word, toxic...
Vanessa Williams has made Wisteria hot again as the flashy and privileged Renee, Lynette's frenemy (and Bree's romantic rival).
