theTVaddict.com is thrilled to introduce you all to Joanna. Every Monday Joanna will be sharing her best and worst episodes of the week. Agree/Disagree. Post away with your own.
Best of the Week #1: FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS
I jumped on the FNL bandwagon during the first half of season one and was a little worried that in a desperate effort to improve the ratings, the writer’s would ruin the show in season two. But having seen the first two episodes of the new season. I can safely say that they haven’t. If ever there were two actors who appear to be made for each other, it’s Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is in a league of it’s own and unlike anything currently on television. I could go on endlessly about what makes this show amazing, but really you should all just see it for yourselves. [Fridays on NBC and Global TV at 9PM].
Best of the Week #2: CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION
It has to be acknowledged that for the first time, fans are finally given a glimpse into the Grissom/Sara backstory. The interaction between the two this week was an example of ‘how it’s done’, acting-wise. As a friend of mine pointed out, it was like watching fan fiction come to life. And with Jorja Fox’s impending departure, that symbolic last scene was just heartbreaking for a die hard GSR shipper like myself. Aside from that, any episode that has William Petersen driving a go-kart deserves a mention!
Best of the Week #3: DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES
It’s so hard to pick a third best episode, because I watch so many shows. But I thought to myself, which episode stood out this week in some way? And I have to say it was DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES because it was such an improvement from last season. I think the show may be making a comeback this season, at least in terms of writing. The premiere was both light-hearted and deeply emotional, which is what made this episode top three in my book.

Worst of the Week #1: PRISON BREAK
Raise your hand if you felt inclined to throw several objects at your TV during the phone call Michael was supposedly having with Sara? Because I don’t know who that woman was or who came up with the grand idea to photoshop Sara’s face into that picture, the annoyance just wouldn’t stop. This whole Sarah Wayne Callies debacle is causing the show to go from bad to worse each and every week. Could they make her absence any more obvious?
Worst of the Week #2: HEROES
Where’s Sylar? Where’s Niki? Where’s Micah? Wait, Claire is struggling to hide her true self. Peter is re-discovering his power. Are we rewatching season one? Did I put on the right episode? Sadly, the new season of HEROES just feels like more of the same. With the only difference being that there’s this enw mystery surrounding the parents that I find not even the least bit interesting. Nor do I consider Hiro’s new world to be something that I simply must tune into. Random Asian girls and rose petals? That just feels like filler material. Who’s with me here?
Worst of the Week #3: GREY’S ANATOMY
I have to admit, the amount of comic relief in this episode almost made me forget how much I’m hating the storylines. I used to happily ride the MerDer rollercoaster, but now even that’s getting tiresome. First he acknowledges that he has a problem, which seems to be the theme of this episode, then at the last minute they spin it back around again. Like he joined AA and fell off the wagon in under five minutes. I thought Shonda Rhimes promised us a lighter more entertaining season? Perhaps she could let us know when it’s starting!
