Nightfly's TV Week in Review 2/19/12 - Spartacus, Face Off, and more!

Nightfly lists his preferred picks from primetime TV and the world of entertainment.






TV Week in Review  (week of 2/19/12)

Chances are pretty high you were happy with the number of primetime choices you had last week. Setting a new personal viewing record for 2012 came as a pleasure to me, I must confess. There weren't just a ton of new shows on, most of them were really strong episodes. [url=http://www.starz.com/spartacus]Spartacus: Vengeance[/url], by far, produced my favorite episode of their new season and took this column's top drama spot after landing in the no.2 position three times since its premiere. In this week when only FOX slotted twice in the hour-long category, [url=http://abcfamily.go.com/shows/jane-by-design]Jane by Design[/url] lists for its second time in as many months, while, [url=http://www.cwtv.com/shows/ringer]Ringer[/url], [url=http://beta.abc.go.com/shows/castle]Castle[/url], and [url=http://www.amctv.com/shows/the-walking-dead]The Walking Dead[/url] make their first return(s) to my drama list since November. On my Outstanding Sitcoms list NBC and HBO are the only nets to slot twice, however, HBO claims the list's top two slots for itself (a rare occurence, to be sure). The Science Channel alone double slots on my Reality Shows list yet Syfy takes that category's top spot for the first time ever thanks to [url=http://www.mckenzie-westmore.com]Mckenzie Westmore[/url]'s [url=http://www.syfy.com/faceoff/]Face Off[/url]. As is most usually the case, Disney and Nickelodeon divide the bulk of my Favorite Teen Shows list with [url=http://www.starwars.com/explore/the-clone-wars/ep419/]Star Wars: The Clone Wars[/url] atop.
Before moving onto this column's lists I want to remind you that items listed with numbers enclosed in parenthesis are currently online for free. Remember, though, some only stay up a handful of days and some don't become available till another few days from now.
Now onto my preferred picks from last week's primetime TV...

Blasting past last week's record, this column reflects my catching a whopping fifty-eight and a half hours of primetime TV programming. Thirty-two and half hours spent watching dramas (plus HoL), fifteen and a half hours dedicated to reality fare and ten hours laughing along to situation comedies; and not to be forgotten, The Clone Wars.
Dramas rounding out my top dozen (in order) were [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/once-upon-a-time-2011/what-happened-to-frederick-3057818/]Once Upon a Time[/url], [url=http://www.cbs.com/shows/person_of_interest]Person of Interest[/url], (what's likely to be the last ever episode of) [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/pan-am-2011/1964-3006465/]Pan Am[/url], [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/switched-at-birth/the-art-of-painting-3060256/]Switched at Birth[/url] and another finale season calibre entry from [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/desperate-housewives/get-out-of-my-life-3002250/]Desperate Housewives[/url].
Completing my top twelve favorite sitcoms (in order) were [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/raising-hope/sheer-madness-3040550/]Raising Hope[/url], [url=http://www.cbs.com/shows/2_broke_girls/]2 Broke Girls[/url], [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/happy-endings-tv/the-butterfly-effect-effect-3061511/]Happy Endings[/url], [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/new-girl/bully-3049179/]New Girl[/url] and [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/whitney/mad-women-3036805/]Whitney[/url]. Every teen oriented show watched last week made it into the column.
[url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/ice-loves-coco/baby-got-besties-3058653/]Ice Loves Coco[/url], [url=http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway-all-stars/video]Project Runway: All-Stars[/url], [url=http://www.amctv.com/shows/talking-dead]Talking Dead[/url], [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/comic-book-men/life-after-clerks-3058493/]Comic Book Men[/url] and [url=http://www.history.com/shows/ancient-aliens]Ancient Aliens[/url] all (somewhat surprisingly) ride the pine for my Reality Shows section this time out.

My fullest Best Guest Star list (conservatively) reached nearly fifteen names last week. Omitting  a couple still leaves [url=http://twitter.com/Curtisleejamie]Jamie Lee Curtis[/url] (on [url=http://www.cbs.com/shows/ncis/video]NCIS[/url]), Jake Weber (on [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/house/man-of-the-house-3036199/]House[/url]), [url=http://twitter.com/autumnreeser]Autumn Reeser[/url] (on [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/jane-by-design/the-wedding-dress-3016112/]Jane by Design[/url]), [url=http://twitter.com/AshleyMGreene]Ashley Greene[/url] (on [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/pan-am-2011/1964-3006465/]Pan Am[/url]) and one of my personal faves, Gregg Henry (on [url=http://www.cbs.com/shows/ncis_los_angeles/video/]NCIS: L.A.[/url]). Also worth mentioning, though one was only sparsely introduced in last week's episode, are [url=http://twitter.com/TJThyne]T.J. Thyne[/url] for his showcase story on [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/the-finder/little-green-men-3036200/]The Finder[/url] and the always stunning Summer Glau making her elusive debut on last week's [url=http://www.clicker.com/tv/greys-anatomy/if-only-you-were-lonely-3026967/]Grey's Anatomy[/url].

While I mentioned the early online premiere of NBC's [url=http://www.nbc.com/awake/]Awake[/url] in my previous column, I still haven't caught it yet myself (it's also available OnDemand, btw). I'm hoping it doesn't take me till its actual premiere date (March 1st) to see it, but it just might. And though I typically embed AMC's [url=http://www.amctv.com/shows/talking-dead]Talking Dead[/url] aftershow segment, no matter what, this week I'm going to just link to it [url=http://www.amctv.com/shows/talking-dead/video]here[/url] because of the amount of already embedded material this installment. [url=http://www.amctv.com/shows/talking-dead]Talking Dead[/url] was a really good one, demonstrated by its being in my top ten favorite reality programs from last week; it features guests [url=http://twitter.com/pagetpaget]Paget Brewster[/url] and series co-star [url=http://twitter.com/steveyeun]Steven Yeun[/url].

HBO kindly released two noteworthy videos for their mega-hit series, [url=http://www.makinggameofthrones.com/production-diary/2012/2/20/invitation-to-the-set.html]Game of Thrones[/url]. Along with their ongoing weekly Making Of series, a new official (2min long) trailer for Season Two was released as well!
