I am so way behind, it is time for a race through and catch up on some shows. Body of Proof continues to improve, Nikita ends its first season on a real high, Bones kills off a character, Hellcats future isn’t looking to promising and has been a little flat lately, The Killing isn’t quite doing
anything much while a whole stack of shows have been axed and quite a few on my viewing list. Drat! Chase, Off the Map, V, No Ordinary Family, Mr Sunshine, Lie To Me, The Chicago Code, Human Target – all I can say is there better be lots of good new shows…

Lots of shows to catch up on, including the final episodes (probably ever) of Off the Map and No Ordinary Family, shows I liked quite a bit but failed to find an audience.
No Ordinary Family went all apocalyptic as Lucy Lawless got a name (which I can’t remember now..Teresa?) and a dastardly plot – to find out how the Powell family got their powers for keeps and to then kill them. However, the melodrama surrounding this including JJ kidnapped, shape shifting humans, taking away powers, double crosses etc was just rather desperate and forced.

Pretty Little Liars continues to be the most fun teen mystery around in an action packed finale that saw the girls getting close to the truth about what happened to the diabolical Allison, but ultimately left them almost back to where they started from!
Spencer’s suspicions over her brother-in-law Ian seemed to be confirmed. Allison’s video files of them fooling around also included a creepy one of pre-blindness Jenna forcing the doe-eyed Toby into a secret affair. Ew!

Another terrific episode of The Good Wife is the standout of the latest batch of my tv viewing, although Lucy Lawless and Tricia Helfer popping up on No Ordinary Family was something I was looking forward to a lot. Elizabeth Mitchell flashed her undies on V while the Hellcats bonded with their rivals from that Christian college.

New episodes of Fringe are always a reason to celebrate. The latest signalled Fringe’s move to Friday nights – notoriously bad for many shows (I still miss The Sarah Connor Chronicles! Especially as The Cape with Summer Glau is pretty much unwatchably bad!)
In a knowing nod to this, the episode was called The Firefly (Joss Whedon’s prematurely axed space western which I must admit I was not greatly into although I enjoyed the movie) and featured the return of the observers and guest starring Christopher Lloyd. We had plenty of soul searching for Walter as the observers told him they were there to put right something his incursion into the alternate world had caused. This was later revealed to be the death of Christopher Lloyd’s son, who shortly before his death in 1985 was brought to 2011 by the observers to speak to his now elderly father. Hmm, time travel, 1985…where is my flux capacitor Doc?
