The boys are back: "nip/tuck" the recap

"Tell me what you don't like about yourself."

And that's the signature line of this gem of a show "nip/tuck' and after umpteen months away it's back! Last season, our boys Christian and Sean moved from Miami to Los Angeles. So far, they've hooked up with a publicist whose's a shark and she's landed them a hot new gig on a show called "Hearts & Scapels"

Christian is still up to his old tricks of being a ladies' man and Sean's still the moral compass of this show, but at the end of the episode, it looks as if the compass is off center.

Episode grade: A+

All you need to do to lose weight is to eat right, exercise and shut up and listen to me: "The Biggest Loser" recap

The aftermath of Neil's decision to waterload before the last weigh-in made the TBL camp a not so fun place to be. Everyone pretty much snubbed Neil but the direction of the game got changed a bit when Bryan, Ryan and Nicole all got a vote.

In the end, the cowboy David was sent packing. It's not a surprise because we knew early on by the face time he was getting that it was going to come down between him and Kae. (Note to the editors of reality shows, let's NOT telegraph what's going to happen.)

Episode grade: A+

Don't forget to watch!

It's the great pumpkin everyone! Well SOME of it anyway.

If you have kids, share this with them. If not, watch it by yourself! Whatever the case, enjoy!

Tonight at 8 on your local ABC station!

Help! My show is broken!:" Heroes": the recap

OK, I'm calling it: "Heroes" has jump the shark. Not even Kristen Bell can save it and she's a good actress! I was soo bored at Hiro's, Peter's and Claire's storylines that it wasn't even funny.

I'd write a recap but I can sum it up in bor-ring. The big reveal at the end about a virus wiping out New York screams legacy virus. and Marvel Comics did that years ago.

The big reveals from last night: Claire makes the cheerleading squad after she and West cares the bejubus out of some actress that was totally trying to rip off the head cheerleader from this movie.

"Nikki" teams up with Mohinder to look for new mutants. I put "Nikki" in quotes because I suspect it's actually Jessica and that the Company brought the Jessica personality back.

Monica gets a shiny new Ipod from Bob full of abilities she can copy while in Ireland, Peter and his new girlfriend (I wish I could care enough to remember her name) go over to Canada to find a room full of stuff.

Maya activates her Wonder Twin power to get Sylar, Alejandro and herself across the border much to the deaths of some Minute Men. (I'm guessing New York is hit by a Maya/Legacy Virus combo)

And badass H.R.G is back!
