A neighborhood slaying puts Allison and her family on the defensive. In the wake of the murder of her neighbor (Jonathan Silverman), our matriarchal medium springs into action, installing a high-tech security system in her home. But that's when a bizarre Kubrickian drama plays out. Straight out of 2001: A Space Odyssey, Allison comes to believe this cutting-edge alarm system has a mind of its own and is actually communicating with young Marie. Dub this one "2010: A Case Oddity." Meanwhile, eldest daughter Ariel sees dead people: She encounters a ghost who might be able to help her attend a coveted college.

Read on for previews of Who Do You Think You Are?, Life and Times of Tim, Smallville, Stargate Universe, Live from Abbey Road and Now on PBS.  Read Full Article

Question: Dude, that GG/VM Logan-crossover scoop? Best. Ever. Where am I sending you that case of Snapple?

Come on, give it up: What ...

Question: Come on, give it up: What "swag" did you get at the press tour?
