Farewell…Leonard Nimoy

"Star Trek" Los Angeles PremiereWe have lost one of the most beloved members of the Starship Enterprise.

The New York Times reported Leonard Nimoy passed away Friday morning at his home after being diagnosed with end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83.

Nimoy’s work in television began in the early ’50s including guest spots on Perry Mason,Dragnet, Sea Hunt, and The Twilight Zone. It would be in 1966 that Leonard Nimoy would begin his rise to pop culture icon as he starred as science officer Spock, a half-Vulcan half-human on Star TrekThe Original Series. While the series only ran for three seasons, it became a much beloved series and the series and his character became a fan favorite over the years for many generations that have been introduced to the character in differing forms.

Banshee
All The Wisdom I Got Left

The heist may not have gone exactly to plan, but the team is just moving on. Hood’s priority this week is finding Chayton. We open with Hood and Brock down in New Orleans looking for Chayton based off the lead Aimee provided last week.

After finding a house in the middle of nowhere, they find a fight in less than a minute. There are too many guys for the two Banshee cops to take on, but luckily the leader is in a talking mood. He informs Hood that Chayton was there, but they sent him away because of the manhunt for Chayton. The man’s best guess is to look in the Quarter.

American Idol
Top 12 Women

I like this new format where the show is taped in front of an audience, but isn’t live. The singers are less jittery and it can be edited so well that 12 singers fit in an hour. I especially like how short and snappy the judges comments are (they probably watched the rehearsals and came up with their comments then).

But I have to say that overall the women showed their nerves more than the men. Did you notice that with both the men and the women that the show is stacked? The best singers are shown last – when the voters will best remember them. So while you think you’re voting for your favorite, the producers have just found a sneaky way to get you to vote for THEIR favorites.

I would feel manipulated, but Idol has always done this. So I’m used to it. How about you?

Here’s how the women did:

The CW Developing ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’ Spin-Off

Ray PalmerThe CW has big(ger) plans for their corner of the DC TV universe.

According to Deadline, an Arrow/The Flash spin-off is in the works at the network.  The reported spin-off would feature quite a few characters from both superhero series including Arrow‘s Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), and The Flash‘s Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and at least one half of FIRESTORM, Martin Stein (Victor Garber).

What’s interesting about the potential spin-off is that Caity Lotz, who played Arrow‘s first iteration of the Canary, Sara Lance, is attached. But considering Sara’s fate earlier this season, one can only wonder how Lotz will fit in terms of character or if she’ll be playing an entirely new character.

The spin-off will, of course, be headed up by the team that brought us Arrow and The Flash. Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg.

Are you excited for more possible Arrow/The Flash overlap in the future or do you think it’s starting to get a little too much?

How to Get Away with Murder
The Night Lila Died/It’s All My Fault

It’s hard to believe, but due to a short (by American TV standards) number of episodes, we’re already at the season 1 finale of HTGAWM. Is the world ready for two hours of this show at once? And what are we going to when that last dramatic minute closes out and leaves us with months of hiatus?

Wes and Laurel debate what to do with their new knowledge of Rebecca and Rudy. When he gets home, he reflects none of his suspicions, nor does she reveal what she already knows. They make out and have sex as though nothing is wrong, but there’s a clear tension in the air. Or is that just me?

Chyler Leigh, David Harewood Join ‘Supergirl’

SupergirlAnd the cast continues to grow!

Grey’s Anatomy alum Chyler Leigh and Selfie‘s David Harewood have joined the cast of CBS’ Supergirl. According to TVLine, Leigh will be playing Kara’s foster sister, Alexandra Danvers, while Harewood has been cast as former CIA agent and current head of the Department of Extra-Normal Operations, Hank Henshaw.

This bit of casting news comes after the announcement earlier this week that Calista Flockhart has been cast to play media empire magnate (and Kara’s boss), Cat Grant.

Along with the casting news, it was revealed today that The Flash and Arrow‘s Andrew Kreisberg will be boarding the project as executive producer and writer. So, everyone’s filming in Vancouver?

So, what do you think of the news rolling out of the CBS project? Are you getting excited.

From Detroit, Michigan, the guys are the first to perform for votes. The women follow on Thursday. But next week the Top 24 becomes the Top 16. The contestants get to sing any song they want.

Here’s an interesting fact: It’s not live. In some ways that’s good. It’s edited so well that they fit 12 singers in one hour. The judges keep their comments short and on point – what a shocker. It’s a bold and excellent choice.

Here’s how they did:

Sorry I wasn’t around last week, but I’m back and ready to get into Nashville. We left off last week with Rayna getting Maddie’s contract nullified while also taking sole custody of the girls, forcing Teddy to get help and getting Jeff fired from Edgehill. Elsewhere, Deacon turned a corner and stopped being all mopey about his cancer, and Gunnar needs a lot of cheering up.

This week we pick up where we left off and there are a lot of moving parts, so no wasting time.

Things go a bit off the rails on this week’s Arrow and left the story all over the place. It’s taken a bit to figure out the root of it, but it seems my point hinges on Ra’s al Ghul and his purpose this season. And it doesn’t look like he’s going to be disappearing on us anytime soon.

Law & Order: SVU
December Solstice

Original Air Date: Feb 25, 2015

caitlin@thetwocentscorp.com

You may be wondering why an episode entitled “December Solstice” is airing in February. Somewhat surprisingly, it has less to do with current temperatures resembling that of December (at the North Pole), and more to do with the age- and aging- of one of our guest stars of the week.

Before we get to him, we learn a little about Barba’s skills with small children; specifically that they are minimal. On a more serious note, Olivia tells him about Noah’s parentage. He assures her that Johnny D does not need to know about his child and that she can proceed with the adoption as planned.
