SAG Awards: The Fashions

I always find it interesting to see who wins the SAG awards since they’re voted on by fellow actors. I was a little bummed that Boardwalk Empire won best show and best actor, but to be fair I’ve never seen the show. It’s on my list, and I’m sure when I start watching I’ll realize it was a very well deserved win. But for now I’m disappointed that shows like Dexter, Breaking Bad and The Good Wife didn’t win instead.

On the flip side, I was happy Modern Family won best comedy. I would’ve liked to see Sofia Vergara win best actress, but for some reason she just isn’t getting the love for her role. Maybe next year…

Dexter Recap: “Sin of Omission”

Warning: Spoilers!

First, I want to start this post by acknowledging that Dexter got picked up for not one, but TWO more seasons! Of course that probably also means that no one close to him will figure out his secret for at least two more years.

This week’s episode started with Dexter trying to get back on his sister’s good side after she gave him one day off and he took five. She forgave him quickly but said it was because she needed his help with the Doomsday Killer case. They figured out that Gellar was working with a former student, which was a detail Dexter wanted to keep to himself. So to speed up his plan to kill Gellar, Dexter paid Travis a visit at work. Travis told him more information than I expected him to, but what he didn’t do was agree to help Dexter find Gellar. Later on, though, Dexter followed him to a diner and used a passage from the Bible to convince him to help. Travis said he wanted to get his sister safe first, though.

Castle Recap: “Cops and Robbers”

Warning: Spoilers

Ugh Beckett! If thinking the man you love just died in an explosion isn’t enough of a reason to admit you love him, I don’t know what is! Even though the Halloween episode was last week, there was certainly a fair amount of intensity in this episode!

Castle and his mother went to the bank because she wanted to get a loan to fix up her acting school and she wanted to do it independently of her wealthy son. While waiting, Castle noticed multiple people dressed as doctors with suspicious bulges in their jacket. He was on the phone with Beckett at the time and told her he thought the bank was about to be robbed, which it was. One of the robbers took his phone and talked to Beckett, who tried to convince him to call it off before it got any worse. That didn’t work, but the robber liked Beckett and refused to talk to any law enforcement person except her, much to the dismay of the lead person on the hostage negotiation team.

Dexter Recap: “The Angel of Death”

Warning: Spoilers

Travis’ identity is no longer a secret – to Dexter, at least. After spotting him in the crowd at the murder scene last week and discovering a specific type of adhesive on the angel wings left on the victim, Dexter was able to figure out where Travis works. He works as an art restorer at a local museum, and Dexter was able to find his name on the museum’s website. Dexter looked Travis up and saw that he has no criminal history and not so much as a speeding ticket to his name. But, after searching his apartment, he discovered that Travis is definitely the Doomsday Killer.

The Mentalist Recap: “Where in the World is Carmine O’Brien?”

This week we finally got a look into the personal life of Lisbon by meeting one of her brothers, Tommy, and his teenage daughter, Annie. We could tell how long it had been since Lisbon saw them by the way that she insisted on calling Annie by her full name, Annabeth.

This week’s murder victim was the police chief who was found with three bullet wounds and her abandoned cruiser nearby. They only found one bullet casing and Jane quickly discovered that she hadn’t been the last person to drive her car because the seat was too far back. They found a pool of blood in the trunk and realized she must’ve been shot twice elsewhere, presumed dead and then shot one final time. A uniformed cop who seemed to be close with her helped the CBI with the case. I was a little suspicious of him at first because he seemed a bit too distraught and eager to help.

Castle Recap: “Demons”

Warning: Spoilers

I’m still a little confused as to why the Halloween episode didn’t air on Halloween, especially since it’s a Monday. Nevertheless, it was an entertaining – and sometimes slightly creepy – hour of television.

The team was investigating the murder of a Jack Sinclair, the host of a popular ghost hunting show called Ghost Wranglers. He was in a haunted house in New York filming an episode of his show when he died, and Castle was certain a ghost killed him. This theory skyrocketed when Lanie pointed out the weirdness of the blood spatter – the splatter was all around the body but there should’ve been a clean area where the killer was standing.

Dexter Recap: “A Horse of a Different Color”

Warning: Spoilers!

The murder scene involving horses that has been teased every week this season was finally front and center this week. It looks like Deb hired the transfer detective from Chicago who she interviewed last week because he was at the crime scene and had a good theory about the meaning behind the theatrical set-up. It was a four horsemen of the apocalypse thing, which ultimately led the team to their prime suspect, Professor Gellar. They also found slips of paper both of the victims with numbers on them, supposedly counting down to the end of the world.
