Listen to the latest TV times Three Podcast: Ep.166, “Following Your Dixie Castle Resort Suits.” On this episode I am joined by @mytakeontv and @raelee. We talk about recent episodes of How I Met Your Mother, The Following series premiere, Castle, Hart of Dixie, Last Resort series finale, and Suits.
The Vampire Diaries (The CW): New. Klaus wants Stefan’s help. Bonnie is visited unexpectedly. Elena tells Stefan her plan.
Person of Interest (ABC): New. Reese has been captured by a former agent he worked with and was thought to be dead. Starts a minute after the hour and runs 60 minutes.
Suits (USA Network): New. Harvey goes up against Rachel’s father in a big gender discrimination case. Plays again later.
The Big Bang Theory (CBS): New. Sheldon is forced to work with Kripke. Raj and Howard get action figures of themselves made. Runs 31 minutes.
Two and a Half Men (CBS): New. Alan gets in trouble with Lyndsey after not giving her a key to the beach house. Starts a minute after the half hour and runs 30 minutes.

- Do No Harm (NBC): Series Premiere. A renowned neurosurgeon deals with his alternate personality, as the medication he has been using to suppress it stops working. I very much like the premise, which is basically a take on Jekyll & Hyde. Not everything works, but I did enjoy this episode enough that I want to see more. It’s worth checking out, but is also the fourth best choice in the time slot.
