Prime Picks

Friday Night Lights (NBC): Season Premiere. Coach Taylor is trying to keep a damper on the expectations for the upcoming season. Tami isn’t very happy with her new job. Two prepare to head off to college. I’ve so been looking forward to this, but will be sad when it is all over. Yet, still very happy, cause we got way more of this show than I would’ve ever thought.

Fringe (FOX): New. The team is attempting to get William Bell’s consciousness out of Olivia before she is lost forever. Plays again late night tomorrow.

Camelot (Starz): New. Merlin begins looking for a sword that is fit for a king. Arthur begins sparring with Leontes in an attempt to impress Guinevere. Plays twice.

Solid Selections

Smallville (The CW): New. Clark gets sent back to the alternate reality again and meets Jonathan Kent. Lois needs Emil’s help.

Supernatural (The CW): New. Balthazar alters history by having the Titanic not sink and Fate has to intervene. Sam and Dean learn from Castiel that they must kill Fate to survive.

Sanctuary (Syfy): Spring Premiere. Ranna continues to try and protect Praxis. Magnus thinks she knows how to fix the tremors and power fluctuations. Plays again later. I got behind and missed the last three episodes of the first half of season three, so wasn’t really up on what is going down in the underground city. But, I still enjoyed tonight’s episode, as it is full of action and resolves the major impetus of the season thus far. It did make me wonder what are they going to do next, after going so big with this storyline. I look forward to finding out. As always the special effects are spectacular. Have you been looking forward to Sanctuary‘s return?

    Sanctuary would actually be on SyFy, not CW.
    I’m definitely looking forward to the show’s return. The M.A.D. braintrust for this show (Martin/Amanda/Damian) always seem to surprise me with where they take the stories.
