Solid Selections

Grey’s Anatomy (ABC): Repeat. Tonight’s replay from this season tries to get to “The Heart of the Matter.” The Chief’s niece is rushed into the hospital. Derek is trying to show Cristina what being a teaching resident entails. Runs 62 minutes.

Numb3rs (CBS): Repeat. The “Velocity” episode from this season replays, where a car crashes into a coffee shop, but Charlie may be able to show it wasn’t really an accident.

Cable Choices

Flash Gordon (Sci Fi): New. This is part one of a two-part episode. Next week is the conclusion and also the season finale. Tonight, an uprising against Ming by Aura’s deviant brother gets underway. Plays again later.

  • Moonlight (CBS): Repeat. Episode four, “Fever,” replays, where Mick gets caught out in the desert trying to find a woman. Didn’t really care for this episode, as it was just another case of the big bad tough vampire having to be saved by someone else, which happened way too often in the first few episodes of the show.
  • Stargate Atlantis (Sci Fi): New. Sheppard ends up in the middle of a secret experiment when he returns to Earth for his father’s funeral. Plays again later. Last week’s episode, “Harmony,” replays right before. Check out a clip from tonight’s episode below.
