Desperate Housewives
“I Guess This Is Goodbye”
Very disappointing season finale, especially with the exciting lead-up episodes.  In fact, was there really a cliff-hanger at all?  OK, Paul is back and there was a baby switch up.  Really?  Is that it?  So far, the most exciting thing about next season is the addition of Vanessa Williams.

How I Met Your Mother
“The Wedding Bride”
At first I thought this was the season finale, but thankfully, it was not.  I’ve come to expect great season finales from the writers of HIMYM!   The movie within a show, The Wedding Bride, was funny enough that I wished I could just sit through the movie instead of a the rather boring episode.  Looking forward to more clips from the movie, whether in future HIMYM episodes, or online somewhere.

Castle
“A Deadly Game”
Another disappointing episode!  Hadn’t we been reading for the last several weeks that there would be a big development in the Castle/Beckett relationship?  But I shouldn’t have been surprised.  I predicted way back when that nothing would really happen.

The Middle
“Average Rules”
Finally!  A wonderful season finale!  I laughed, I cried, I nearly proclaimed this show the funniest one on television!  The lovability of these so-called average characters just keeps growing and growing.

Modern Family
“Family Portrait”
Excellent episode.  Especially clever way of using text messages to create a misunderstanding.  And even though most critics seem to dislike the voiceovers at the end of each episode, I find them sweet and a nice way to wrap up each show.

Community
“Pascal’s Triangle Revisited”
Why am I such a sucker for a Jeff/Annie kiss?  After I watched this episode, I bought Season 1.

Desperate Housewives
“The Ballad of Booth (1)”
Nothing new happened in this episode, except to set the stage for a lot of action next week.  These of types episodes are necessary, but not particularly exciting.

Modern Family
“Hawaii”
Very funny and sweet episode, but I’m not sure it was worth all the hype.   I’ve always wondered if these types of episodes are worth the cost of traveling all the way to a special, remote location.  Does the extra excitement of Hawaii really bring that many extra eyeballs to all those commercials?

Rules of Engagement
“The Score”
Patrick Warburton getting a shot of estrogen?  Very funny premise and almost wish it would have been played out further.  Instead, they played up the Tivo-ing of a Rangers game and trying to avoid the score all night.  The latter has been done to death.  Still, a funny episode overall.

NCIS
“Moonlighting”
The best part of this episode is Abby’s apparent jealousy over a girl’s crush on McGee.  It did not live up to the hype of Gibbs’ taking a polygraph.

NCIS: Los Angeles
“Fame”
Pretty good episode, mostly due to the addition of a new recurring character.  But will he be back?

Clip Show: Week of 4/19

NCIS: Los Angeles
“Hand-to-Hand”
I had high hopes for this spin-off because of my love for NCIS, but because of characters like Dom (Adam Jamal Craig) and Kensi (Daniela Ruah), I haven’t really gotten into it.  I have been watching it mostly for the great chemistry between Callen (Chris O’Donnell) and Sam (LL Cool J).  In this episode, however, I have me new hope for the show with the addition (and hopefully new recurring character) of Eric Christian Olsen (Vaughn from Community, anyone?) as the liaison between NCIS and the LAPD.  More Vaughn please!

Saturday Night Live
Tina Fey
I’m so late watching this episode, but I had to write just to say how good it was!  Tina Fey was a big loss to SNL, but we benefitted in 30 Rock.  Was it just me or did it seem like they gave her extra long skits, too?  My favorite sketch: Tina Fey as teacher to student-crush “Jason” (Justin Bieber).
Some good reviews here and here (this one has clips!).

The New Adventures of Old Christine
“Revenge Makeover”
Good episode (even though I think the show is past its prime) because what woman can’t identify with the revenge makeover?  And let’s face it, any episode with Papa Jeff (Scott Bakula) is fine with me!
