wwe nxtThis week on WWE NXT we get very bad immigration advice in a storyline that only detracts from the point of this show, a competition to win a contract with WWE. Four rookies, four weeks left with an elimination next week. Kaitlyn wins a highly staged arm wrestling competition. AJ actually picks up a win over Niki Bella but the focus is on the twins miscommunication and Primo watching for the switch. Thus, the win doesn’t elevate AJ in any way.

The second challenge is kind of fun as the rookies have to identify WWE employees from their high school photos. Jerry Lawler in high school looked a hell of a lot like Cody Rhodes. Which makes the King’s insults of Cody Rhodes’ looks kind of funny. The contest is actually pretty close, except for Aksana sucking, but AJ beats Kaitlyn in a tiebreaker. There’s a recap of Vickie Guererro being hit by a cake from last week. I loathe Vickie being on-screen but I’ll give her props for being willing to do anything on global television.

Aksana and Naomi are the main event with Goldust in Naomi’s corner. Naomi has raw talent and can hit a variety of moves, but she still hasn’t mastered the flow of matches. Aksana is even more limited. Naomi rightfully gets the win. Kaitlyn and Aksana are both deeply enmeshed in the storylines of this show so don’t expect either of them to go home. That puts AJ and Naomi in the danger zone. Naomi’s probably the best wrestler of the pack, but AJ is genuinely likable. Maybe they can drop Aksana and somehow keep her around to play out her story with Goldust. That’s optimistic on my part .. but a man can dream. More importantly, there are only 4 weeks before this nightmare comes to a close and I can start looking forward to the return of Tough Enough.

The MentalistGuest Post by Hyman Weeks.

On Thursday night I always turn my television to CBS. I love to watch The Mentalist. The lead character Patrick Jane is really very funny. It gives an almost comedic element to the regular old crime drama’s. With his quirky behavior’s and unusual approaches to solving the murders, The Mentalist has become one of my favorite TV shows.

The backdrop of this program is set in California. Patrick Jane is a contractor for the California Bureau of Investigation or CBI. His unique perceptive abilities allow him to read people’s body language and expressions. When it comes to crime solving this gift offers him a good vantage point in picking out the murderers, but it also tends to get him into a little trouble of his own. Somehow this character’s antics always make me laugh, and I know that it seems to be a little strange to laugh at a crime drama, but this show is in a class all of its own.

This show happens to be one of my favorites, and I never miss it. In those rare instances where I can’t be at home on a Thursday night to watch it, I simply set the DVR on my satellite tv and record the episode. I can’t wait until next Thursday to see what kind of trouble Patrick Jane can find.

The Walking Dead

After two awesome episodes that have gotten both great ratings and positive reviews, AMC has gone ahead and renewed The Walking Dead for a 13 episode second season. The series has been breaking cable records with high ratings in adults 18 to 49 and had the biggest premiere ever for the Fox International Channels.

The comic series by Robert Kirkman was brought to television by producer and director Frank Darabont and stars Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Steven Yeun, Emma Bell, and Chandler Riggs. The third episode of the six episode first season airs this Sunday at 10pm.

The comic is also at a creative high as it heads to issue 80 and “No Way Out”. Just when Rick was starting to feel safe, it looks like the walls will be caving in on his happy new neighborhood (literally!).

This Friday, my personal favorite Lois Lane, Teri Hatcher, guests stars on the newest episode of Smallville. Hatcher will be portraying Lois’ mother, who passed away while Lois was just a child. Also guest starring in the episode is Julian Sands and the big screen Supergirl Helen Slater as Jor-El and Lara, Clark’s parents from Krypton. This is the first time we will see Jor-El and Lara together and the first time we will see the Jor-El from the Fortress and not just hear his voice. What change causes this to happen? You’ll have to watch the new episode on the CW this Friday to find out. Below is the episode’s preview.

ice road truckersGuest post written by Rico Cunningham.

My favorite show on television used to be Ice Road Truckers. It seemed like no show could possibly get your heart racing more than that. But then they came out with IRT: World’s Deadliest Roads. IRT stands for Ice Road Truckers. So, what the title is telling you is that some ice road truckers decided to take on some of the world’s deadliest roads. Well, they sure didn’t waste any time by going straight to some crazy, winding, 8-000-foot road with no border in India. Not only do trucks fly off this route and kill everyone on board on a regular basis, but there are also many head-on collisions. What makes this even more intense is that the buses get paid to arrive at their destination on time. If they don’t arrive on time, they don’t get paid. So, what do they do? They speed on one of the most dangerous roads in the world. Brilliant, huh? It might be okay if you have to feed your family, but not when other lives are put in danger.

The American drivers had no idea what they were in for. You can see and feel the fear on their faces. They want no part of it, other than to prove they won’t back out. I make sure I watch IRT on Free on Demand on my direc4u tv every single week. I haven’t missed an episode yet.

kardashiansThanks to Daryl Rasmussen for the guest post.

The Kardashians love drama. I guess that’s why they have a television show. I know most men feel that Kim Karadshian is one of the most beautiful women on the planet, but I am not one of them. She’s pretty, but she’s just not my type. The reason I watch the show is because I have gotten to know all of them through their show and I want to see how everything will play out in their lives. For instance, will Scott stick around and make it as part of the family? I highly doubt it. Many tabloids say he’s a cheater. And this is on a consistent basis. And what about Kim? Will she ever find a permanent romance and someone she can marry? And what’s the deal with the Dash store? Is it a success or a failure? All those are great aspects to the show, but the most appealing aspect to me is Bruce Jenner. No, I don’t mean in a physical way. There is just something about his character that makes you want to watch more of him. It’s like he is the glue that barely holds that family together, and if he makes one false move all hell will break loose. This has happened in the past, so it’s bound to happen again. Keeping Up With The Kardashians is the primary reason I have Free on Demand on satalite tv packages. It’s not the only reason, but its definitely at the top of the list.
