Tonight’s TV Addictions: December 15, 2008

Sarah attempts to track down a blogger who’s familiar with the mysterious three-dots. Psssttt… Sarah… were up here… in Toronto Canada…. Seriously, drop by anytime.

After surviving a near fatal real-life car accident and four fictional years on the run from some fairly lethal Cylons, if anyone deserves a laugh, it’s tonight’s special guest star Michael Trucco. [Click here for video preview]

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (8:30PM CBS, E! in Canada)
Hey Barney, have you met Ted’s younger sister? Not if Ted can help it.

CHUCK (8PM NBC, CityTV in Canada)
Just in time for my PVR to run out of space recording the season comes CHUCK’s final episode of 2008. Phew.

If Fred Armisen can pull of playing both President-Elect Barack Obama and Governor David Patterson, maybe there is hope that a predominantly white Virginia High School can pull of a production of THE WIZ (a traditionally all black musical adaptation of THE WIZARD OF OZ).

THETVADDICT.COM READER PICK (via Twitter): mytakeontv: THE BIG BANG THEORY! The previews for tonight feature a Sheldon/Penny hug! I love it!

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • Terminator was good but had a bit of a quiet ending for a mid-season finale. It’s interesting to see the direction of the Riley character.

    Another great episode of Chuck. Chuck kept his cover again, but eventually his sister Ellie is going to be put in danger again, and his secret will have to come out.

    Heroes remained a model of consistency by once again being a chaotic mess of mixed motivations, flashy action, a halfway cool character supposedly getting apparently killed, and powers & chemicals being used to maximum convenience over any redeemable character development. It’s bad enough to be frustrating but just intriguing enough to keep coming back for more punishment. I felt a sense of relief when the screen went black and the caption denoted the end of Volume 3.

    I’m watching Prison Break now. Interesting coincidence to see the two Enterprise security chiefs from Star Trek: TNG both on TV tonight. Michael Dorn (Lt. Worf) played a surprising & very brief role in the last minute of Heroes, and Denise Crosby (Lt. Tasha Yar) is guesting as a Company doctor on Prison Break.

  • Last night was probably my favorite Big Bang Theory episode yet, well next to the large time machine episode…hehehe.. Oh and HIMYM, still rocks! I don’t care what anyone says it is the best thing on TV. And thank god that Marshall finally got his hair cut (last weeks episode), but what is up with his very noticeable weight gain? I wondered if that was for a role or is he just a fast food junkie like me! 🙂

    My daughter and I discovered last night that I am Sheldon! lol I hate christmas and the whole gift giving thing and so agree that gift giving is a burden! 🙂 Thank you Sheldon/writers of BBT for shedding some light on how Christmas sucks for some of us, not everyone loves Christmas and it was nice to see that last night on one of my favorite shows, done in a brilliant way!! However the gift that Penny gave to him was so perfect I almost cried too! lol

    I haven’t watched Heroes yet this season, I kept hearing terrible things that I finally stopped DVR’ing it and deleted them, I may have to wait for the DVD. I loved Season 1 Heroes, but maybe it is time for it to say goodbye?
