'Tomorrow People' Hits Its Stride, 'Glee' Gets Emotional, - Plus, More

The CW

Best Show that Combined Being Humorous & Sexy: The Tomorrow People:

What was the best show to combine being humorous and sex? “The Tomorrow People.” This week’s episode (“Superhero”) centered on Russell (Aaron Yoo) as he tried to find his vigilante ex (Melissa Roxburgh). 

Russell offered up his characteristic zingers, and Yoo got to display his marvelous comedic abilities and some great chemistry with his love interest (Roxburgh). Meanwhile, Cara (Peyton List) and John (Luke Mitchell) got to play with the lighter side of their relationship, where double entendres abounded, and witty chemistry followed suit.

Most Entertaining Soap Opera Characters: Ally, “The Bold and the Beautiful”

One of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” most entertaining characters continued her reign as Ashlyn Pearce’s enthralling performance as Ally remained as engaging as ever.

Best Reality TV Return: “Dancing with the Stars”

The judges were positioned back where they used to sit, the celeb aquarium returned, and Season 18’s contestants are all amazingly likable. Everything is right on course for Season 18 of the dancing phenomena. The only drawback is this is the second season in a row in which “Dancing with the Stars” has fixed something that was not broken by ousting fan-favorite Brooke Burke-Charvet.

“Pretty Little Liars” Season Finale Provides Answers

After a season of “Pretty Little Liars” spent chasing Ali (Sasha Pieterse) around, she finally sat down and coughed up some answers. Most of the puzzle pieces were finally put into place, and they actually made sense. The only downside was the absolution of Fitz (Ian Harding) and the lamest gunfight/showdown ever that resulted in him being injured.

Most Annoying Soap Storyline: “General Hospital”

Robin (Kimberly McCullough) is still gone on “General Hospital” after abandoning the family she just returned from the dead to get reunited with. All so that she can save a gangster she “died” saving the first around.

Saddest Long Goodbye: “Glee” 

Not since Sam Malone was closing shop at “Cheers” has the sadness of closing doors and ending a chapter been this sad. As the original kids came back to sing the Glee club out of existence, the emotion on “Glee” was abundant.

After last week’s incredibly moving “Glee” episode that finally paid tribute to Finn for the first time since “The Quarterback,” the one-hundredth episode was a similarly somber affair. Hopefully, the Glee club survives. Otherwise, it would be way too depressing a note to conclude viewers’ time in Lima.

Worst Reveal: “Revenge”

It turns out that Emily (Emily Van Camp) does not have a split personality on “Revenge.” She just needed Aiden (Barry Sloane) to dunk her head in a tub of water so that she could remember something big (being sarcastic here). So, what was the traumatic memory? Emily had asked her dad to stop hooking up with Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) when she was a kid, which he refused. Apparently, until she could remember that detail, her psyche was fractured. What. A. Revelation.

Most Annoying Recurring Storyline: “The Vampire Diaries” 

Stefan (Paul Wesley) has yet another doppelganger on “The Vampire Diaries.” This one is a true blue hero. Wow! The scenario is already a yawn-fest, and it has barely begun. The question is, if Elena (Nina Dobrev) is destined to be with her contemporary doppelganger, then does not this new guy fit the bill? If so, why does everyone on the showinsistg Stefan is her soul mate?

Most Disturbing Show: “Vikings”

“Vikings” is a show known for its rather unsanitized violence, and this week’s episode was no exception. Its shocking brutality hit queasy levels that indelibly disturbed me.

Most Shocking Hereditary Twists: “Bates Motel” and “Once Upon a Time”

Despite suspecting that Dylan’s (Max Thieriot) biological father was Norma’s brother, actually hearing it confirmed was a massive shocker. What makes “Bates Motel” one of the best television shows is that it never makes a bold plot move for sheer shock value.

This story’s threads create the very fabric of Norma Bates’ character as a victim turned survivor. It makes a world of sense. Few shows can plot character-driven drama as effortlessly as “Bates Motel,” which sets it apart.

Over on ABC, “Once Upon a Time” provided the twisted sister reveals that the Wicked Witch (Rebecca Mader) and Regina (Lana Parrilla) are half-siblings. This development was genuinely surprising, and the writers were wise to move on it before the viewer’s speculation could simmer for too long, spoiling the reveal.
