After a series of harrowing episodes showing one or two of our hardy survivors at a time, tonight’s adventure reunites many of them in a “gang’s all here” kind of reunion. Well, many of them, anyway. And they’re reuniting for yet another grim and risky battle – this time to mount a surprise invasion of the medical facility where two of their own are being held against their will.

Last week, Saul (Mandy Patinkin) escaped from captivity, and was led by Carrie (Claire Danes) to safety – until he wasn’t. What a dramatic episode. And what’s to happen this week, now that Saul is back in enemy hands, and the identity of the CIA double agent has been exposed?

MIDSEASON FINALE: Last week, I asked, “Could things get any worse for poor Cary Agos (Matt Czuchry)?” The answer was yes – he now has a bodyguard, and even though he had a clear-the-air face-to-face conversation with Bishop, the danger remains palpable. And tonight, in an episode titled “The Trial,” Cary faces a judge, and a jury, in the trial that may send him away for 15 years.

On tonight’s episode, another fall finale, Max (Max Burkholder) is a guest at a party thrown by his parents for the Chamber Academy – and it’s a party at which he’s determined to propel his relationship with his “girlfriend” to the next level. Which, to the objective outside observer, might as well be called “base camp.”

In tonight’s episode, it’s learned that the MI-5 agents have a spy in their midst. Not that they shouldn’t – but in this case, it’s a sleeper agent tied to the Americans. Sort of like The Americans, only different.

The duplicities and internal dangers regarding this particular sideshow come to the surface tonight. When one of the members of the troupe learns that Elsa (Jessica Lange) has been selling certain performers, like chattel, to a rival, that person is of two minds about how to react. But that makes sense, because that person has two heads. Meanwhile, also in tonight’s episode, the women of the troupe gang up to retaliate against Dell the Strongman (Michael Chiklis), who certainly has it comi

Tonight’s guests, discovering things about their family lineage, tend toward the comic. Tina Fey is one guest subject, and David Sedaris is another. One of the things Sedaris is bound to confront is that he has a very funny sister, named Amy – but I’m pretty sure he knows that already.

Last week’s installment ended with the stunner of a plot development we’ve been awaiting, with equal parts anticipation and nervousness, all season. Out of the mouths of babes – specifically, out of the mouth of his own young elder son – Jax (Charlie Hunnam) learns that the real murderer of Jax’s wife was… Jax’s mother (Katey Sagal). Jax spends the entire night, sitting in the dark by his son’s bed, trying to decide whether that accusation could p

Jane (Gina Rodriguez) had a life that seemed complicated enough, without the recent discovery that her biological father was none other than Rogelio (James Camil), her family’s favorite telenovela star. Tonight, Rogelio gets closer to Jane by moving to Miami with his evil young stepdaughters in tow  -- and enrolls them in Jane’s school.

The Boston Marathon bombing proved a very smart subject to examine the sorts of issues Aaron Sorkin is most interested in probing in this HBO series. How is breaking news disseminated, collected and, most important, verified in this new century of social media and intense TV news competition? Last week’s season premiere showed that getting the story, and getting it right, is not easy. But, more than ever, it’s important. In tonight’s episode, Jane Fonda returns as cable news ne

Doc Martin: Special Collection

Plenty of British TV deals this week at Amazon, including the series about a prestigious London surgeon with a problem – fear and panic at the sight of blood. To cope, Doctor Martin Ellingham (a.k.a. Doc Martin) has relocated to the seaside village of Portwenn to be the local GP and witness less gore. The doc is also socially inept in that high comic British way, completely lacking bedside manner. Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly, the original British version) gives a humorous portrait of an awkward genius who unwillingly grows attached to his local patients. 65% off at Amazon –Eric Gould
