Hello all, welcome to the 2-hour season finale recap of 24. I know you missed me the last couple of weeks but I’m sure you got along fine. Without further ado, your final 24 recap here on DeadOn:

The Following Takes Place Between 6:00 A.M. and 8:00 A.M.

  1. Olivia gets questioned by the Deputy Attorney General (not good enough for the actual AG?) about the death of Hodges and gets defensive.
  2. Woods tells the President that the leak on Hodges had to have come from within the White House. Dundundun. Cue the scary movie music. (more…)

My Finale-Was Pretty Good For A Last Show Thursday, May 7, 2009

So maybe my bias is showing here. You know what? I don’t think I care. That was a good ending. I never really expected it to be that emotional or that funny since, well, pretty much no series finale is like that. What I thought we’d get was just a good Scrubs episode (only an hour long) and that’s what we got. So let’s get to this last Scrubs recap, shall we?

My Chief Concern-Was…Interesting Tuesday, May 5, 2009

I honestly don’t know what to think about the second to last episode of Scrubs. It wasn’t that funny nor was it that emotional. It was just a, as I call it, classic setup episode. But with that said I never find any of the episodes Zach Braff direct funny so who knows what the reason was? All I know is that it was a epi that was just…there and a bit all over the place. So let’s just dive into the review and figure things out as we go.

The Following Takes Place Between 2:00 A.M and 3:00 A.M.

My week has been pretty busy so you’re getting a quick recap instead of the full thing.  This week was mostly setting up the last few episodes anyway.  As an additional programming note, I’m going to be out of town in Europe for the next 2 weeks but I’ll be back just in time for the finale night.  I know you’re going to be sad but them’s the breaks. Join me after the jump for a quickie. (more…)

My Cuz-Yay Sean and Kim Are Back! Thursday, April 23, 2009

Okay, so I can’t hold my excitement. I really liked Scott Foley and Elizabeth Banks when they were on the show. I’ll give you a lot of that was because they kept JD and Elliot apart, but I did like their characters. And them as actors. So yeah.

Oh, and like hi. Here we are again with another review. I know I should have been keeping up with these, but, well, I got lazy. And missed a few shows. Like, I just saw last week’s show yesterday. By the way, I loved Sam Lloyd’s cover of “Hey Ya.” Seriously, I need to go and buy The Blanks’ cd. Anyway, it’s three (including this one) episodes left and I want to do the last three recaps of the series. So let’s do this.  (more…)

The Following Takes Place Between 2:00 A.M and 3:00 A.M.

  1. A hot attorney is being sent to represent Jon Voight. As she’s leaving her house she’s gassed by some dude and she passes out on the floor. He and some other girl, who looks like her, poison her with something, steal an ID badge, and copy her fingerprint.
  2. Tony shoots himself in the arm to make it look like he was attacked. He gets a call from the dude who stole the canister and he’s having doubts about the operation but Tony says the people he’s working for will pay a lot of money for it. When the FBI team shows up he acts confused and in shock. (more…)

Well, that happened, didn’t it? I’d also like to echo the comments of the blogosphere when I say that the two judges at once thing sucks. Hire a director who can reign the show in, ok? And stop pissing off my fellow “Fringe” fans – that’s a show we should have been recapping since the start – and no more running late! Speaking of running late, the Roundtable isn’t! We’re up and live in plenty of time yet again. So jump with us for the Tarantino night recappage (more…)

What happened tonight? Quite frankly a lot and it was one of the best and most emotional episodes of 24 ever. I was completely stunned while watching the end of the episode. Not even the return of Kim could ruin it. Follow for the recap.

YAY! I managed to get a Roundtable up this week afterall! You have no idea the amount of amazing one-liners and zingers that just sit in my inbox when I lack the ability to get one of these things up in time. If you watched last night’s performance show, then you probably have an idea of where we’re going with this. Especially if you tuned in for the liveblog.  The steaming cowpie awaits you… (more…)

People are going crazy – or as one may say, “off the rails” – so let’s see if anyone gets stabby. Or plays with a gun and accidentally shoots themselves in the belly, setting into motion the ascent of Brian Austen Green. Dear Lord, let’s hope it is not number two.

This week, Silver goes full bore loopy, and Adrianna realizes she may not be terrible at this kid thing. Plus, Brandon is back… just behind the camera. Tease!

MTV Reality: A Programming Note Friday, April 3, 2009

So maybe you have noticed (ok, probably not) that there hasn’t been a recap for the past 3 episodes of Real World: Brooklyn on here. For a variety of reasons I haven’t even been able to watch the past 3 episodes yet, although they are all waiting for me on the DVR. By now it seems kind of silly to go back and recap an episode from a few weeks ago when you have most likely already seen it and/or found a recap somewhere else. Truthfully, while I have always enjoyed the voyeuristic aspect of MTV’s reality fare, lately I haven’t enjoyed them at all. In taking 1.5 hours to watch and recap the shows, it has felt a little too much like work. I appreciate you all for joining me here for these past (almost) 2 years for these recaps, but the time has come to put down the pen and just watch these shows for my personal enjoyment again. So, I won’t be recapping the upcoming season of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge, or any other MTV reality shows. My stint at DeadOn as the “MTV guy” goes out not with a bang, but with a whimper. Thanks for watching.

Tracy has decided he wants to go into space, and holds a press conference. Dennis shows up at Liz’s door again. As part of his 12-step sex addiction recovery, he apologizes to Liz. Jack’s mom has sent him up a bunch of old movies, including one of him at his ~8th birthday party, where he’s so excited by one of his gifts that he vomits. Included was also his list of things to accomplish by age 501. He’s accomplished almost all of them. Jenna’s hooked up to a flying rig. While she’s Peter Panning it up, Liz is holding Jenna’s cell phone, on which she gets an apology call from Dennis.

Liz tells Kenneth she’s going out for lunch, and Tracy has his usual demands, but Kenneth has already anticipated his needs. Tracy: “You are my Radar O’Reilly, Ken. Now get in here and rub my feet ’til you hear a chopper coming.”

Jack comes up to Liz, inquiring after Tracy’s mood. His contract is up and Jack will be re-negotiating it. Since Tracy has ridiculous coin now, it’s all about developing the personal relationship. He and Tracy have even gotten matching BFF bracelets. Liz, amused and a little touched: “You guys are best friends forever?” Jack: “That’s not what that stands for.” He leans in to whisper in Liz’s ear. Liz: “Why would you celebrate that?
