Homeland Season 2 has been on the receiving end of a lot of flack. I’m not saying I’m an innocent bystander. I took part. I flacked. Sometimes, the show strayed from the believable and entered the realm of trashy explosions for the sake of explosions. But those explosions were necessary. In terms of characters, it was time for some spring cleaning. So, despite the fact that Season 2 made an Emmy-award winning show more like Jack Bauer’s wet dream, I’m still hooked.

Jaw Dropping. Gasp Inducing. Emmy Winning.

These are the tantalizing buzzwords sprinkled throughout the flashy teaser trailer for season five of The Good Wife. Hey, CBS, if you've got it, you might as well flaunt it.

Last season saw a lot of change for the Florricks, Lockhart/Gardner, and Chicago in general. Peter was elected Governor (yay? not yay? I'm still not sure...) and Alicia agreed to renew their wedding vows and stay by his side. But that didn't stop Alicia and Will from sharing a passionate kiss and a heartfelt conversation about their undeniable feelings for each other on election night. Diane popped the question to her man and faces a huge decision regarding whether to leave her own firm or become a Supreme Court Justice. And speaking of leaving firms, in the biggest twist of all, Alicia accepted Cary's offer to join him in ditching L/G and branching off on their own.

So, here's to Florrick, Agos, and Associates!

Have you been clutching your pearls since the climactic season-two finale of Downton Abbey, waiting patiently for that endless swoon at Matthew and Mary's engagement to finally leave your body? I have! Downton's second season ripped through the house like Lost's smoke monster, occasionally for the better but generally for the worse.

This Sunday we return to the highly anticipated, newly Emmy-award winning Homeland and, I've got to be honest, I'm worried. I'm not just concerned for Carrie's unpredictable mental stability or how Brody's wavering moral compass will threaten the nation's greatest leaders — I'm worried to see if their growth in popularity and media coverage will ruin the viewing pleasure.

With the crisp air and changing leaves of fall comes a desire to get back to business and no one takes care of business quite like Alicia Florrick. For the first time since the series began, Alicia and her lothario husband, gubernatorial candidate Peter, have formed a united front. This could change the entire dynamic of the show. Well, that and that fact that Alicia's boss/on-again-off-again paramour Will is likely still madly in love with her. Alicia Florrick Just how committed is Alicia to Peter now that he's running for governor and living in their old house with their kids?

Until a couple months ago I had never even seen a promo spot for an episode of Burn Notice. I had a passing familiarity with the title and instinctively knew it was about orange-tinted spies or cops or something in Miami; just enough context to fully appreciate Aziz Ansari's set about his cousin Harris. However, that changed one night when the boyfriend and I were visiting my parents: Burn Notice was on the TV, the boyfriend was sick – halfway through the episode, it became apparent that I was the third wheel in a bourgeoning love affair.
