Jeff P. – Sr. Staff Writer

It’s the final week of King Crab season and the captains have a lot on their plate. Tensions of their crews will flare up, and deadlines for the best prices on offloads are looming. There’s a bet to be honored as well. One thing is for sure… everyone in the fleet is ready to go home.

The Mentalist - Red John's Footsteps (Air Date: 5-19-2009)
Liz – Associate Staff Writer

Red John is at it again, ladies and gentlemen. He is back screwing with Jane’s head and it is awesome in a really horrible, awful, and wonderful way. This time, he uses poor Emma Plaskett as a victim. When CBI arrives at the scene, they see Emma’s toenails painted red with her own blood, just like Red John had done to Jane’s wife. Just when they are trying to convince Jane otherwise, a plane flies overhead and skywrites Red John’s signature smiley face. Even though Jane has every right to say “I told you so,” he doesn’t.

Harper's Island - Sploosh (Air Date: 5-23-09)
Karen – Sr. Staff Writer

Tonight’s episode starts up right where we left off. Daddy W just got sliced in the head with a blade falling from the chandelier. Everyone is freaking out and screaming and in runs sheriff Mills. He gets everyone out of the church and tells them to go back to the Inn. As they all are leaving, Madison sees JD hiding by a tree and giving her a “shhhh” sign.

Recap and review of Sploosh

Ugly Betty - Curveball/The Fall Issue (Air Date: 5-21-09)
Karen- Sr. Staff Writer

Matt has asked Betty to move in with him, which she accepts. But not so fast Suarez, Henry is seen on the streets of N.Y. and what’s that? Could it be a flutter in your stomach saying “Yum, I sure miss that!” could it, huh? Yes it is!

American Idol - Finale (Air Date: May 19, 2009)
Patricia Morris Buckley — Associate Staff Writer

While Adam Lambert has been the frontrunner for so many weeks now, it seems strange that choosing between the final two isn’t as easy as it once appeared. It’s like being offered two really great kinds of ice cream and not being able to have a scoop of both.

NCIS - Aliyah (Air Date: May 19, 2009)
Angelique – Associate Staff Writer

‘Aliyah’ is a Hebrew word which means as much as ‘ascent’ it refers to Jewish immigration to Israel. I have been spoiler free all season but I just needed to know what that word meant. It basically means that when you move to Israel you are ascending, in essence it means that you are moving to a better place. Moving from Israel is called ‘Yerida’ which means decent.

Knowing the meaning of that word you pretty much know what this episode will hold in store for you. Especially when you have seen the ending of the last episode. Let’s start where the last episode ended.

Tony is lying on Ziva’s living room floor holding Ziva at gunpoint, who has just kicked in the door to her own apartment after she has seen the struggle that ensued in her apartment from the outside of the building. She ran inside when she heard the gunshots and she is now holding her gun pointed at Tony. Michael is deadly wounded on the floor next to Tony. Ziva turns Michael onto his back, he tells her that he is sorry.

The New Adventures of Old Christine - Love: A Cautionary Tale (Air Date: May 20, 2009)
Caitlin- Senior Reviewer

It’s the season finale of Old Christine! And it’s going up against the finale of American Idol, so hardly anyone’s going to watch. But CBS has already renewed the show, so just relax and watch the total lack of relaxation in tonight’s wedding.

Gossip Girl - The Goodbye Gossip Girl (Air date: 5-18-09)
Valeria – Sr. Reviewer

It’s graduation time for the boys and girls of Constance Billiard and St. Judes. Which gives me some deep fangirly pleasure. Buffy graduated from high school a year before I graduated from middle school, so the fact that my graduation date from college is the same as the UESers makes me pretty dorkily happy. I feel free to admit this here, because if you’re reading this review in the first place, you totally get it. The second season finale of Gossip Girl had it’s ups and downs, but at least it finally gave me the ending that I wanted and set up a lot of new story lines for the third season.

Glee - Pilot (Air Date 5-19-09)
Crystal – Sr. Reviewer

I’ve been waiting for Glee to premiere for months, ever since my e-mail starting going crazy with Google Alerts for some of the stars – both regular and guest. The show centers on a high school’s once wonderful glee club. The club has fallen by the wayside, but one man hopes to change that. Will Schuster, spanish teacher to the rescue. Tonight, we were treated to a special airing of the pilot from Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy. So, did the show live up to expectations?

Dancing With the Stars - Finale (Air date 5-19-09)
Crystal – Sr. Reviewer

It’s been a long season here at Dancing With The Stars. The stars have been plagued by multiple injuries, and more complicated and tricky dances than ever before. Our stars have been battling it out for weeks. Tonight, all of their work came to fruition as a winner was crowned in the massive two-hour finale. It came down to Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson, and Gilles Marini.

Prison Break - Rates of Exchange/Killing Your Number (Air Date: May 15, 2009)
Tom R. – Sr. Staff Writer

The lingering question for me, even before the cancellation, had always been whether any of the Prison Break characters stood a chance of having anything close to a normal life. In the closing moments of the series, there are a lot of mixed messages contained in the answer to that question.
