TV Recaps: 22 Highlights from the Week Ending May 21, 2010
Glee recap: Dream a little dream
Will and Bryan did such a great version of Billy Joel's ''Piano Man'' that I wish they would have released that as a downloadable track. Those two harmonize quite well together. Perhaps in lieu of a trip to Broadway, a Harris/Morrison boy band should be in the works? — Tim Stack
Grey's Anatomy recap: Shots fired
Shonda Rhimes and company had a lot to live up to, given last year's epic George-is-the-dead-patient twist, and, well, they did a bang-up job. Such a bang-up job that I actually feel bad using cutesy shooting puns, as if this all really happened, as if there really were a shooter in Seattle Grace racking up massive casualties, as if there really were several people now dead at the hands of my insensitive wordplay. — Jennifer Armstrong
The Real Housewives of NY recap: The stuff of nightmares
The two women are very impressed by Kelly's demeanor behind the camera. ''Plus she has those super glasses on so she can see really well!'' says Sonja. Oh Sonja, I love you, love you, love you. — Karen Valby
Community season finale recap: I love you, Jeff Winger
''I say things others won't. That has value.'' — Pierce
The Office recap: Cheap foreign printers attacking innocent Americans
She admitted that her lifelong dream was to become so successful at business that someone would make a Barbie out of her. Michael engaged in his ''this has been a crappy year'' heart-to-heart. It was cute, but it felt a bit...off. Especially considering that Jo comes off like such a rags-to-riches hardass (in case you didn't notice, she's played by KATHY FREAKING BATES). — Darren Franich
Bones season finale recap: Here's to change
Maybe we want them to come back as different people, as it was hinted in the episode. Part of me knows that the core of who they are will never change. Bones will always be intelligent, calculated and just a little socially clueless. Booth will always be the hero, the ''gambler,'' and a person of faith. But would it be such a bad thing for them to change the non-core parts? The parts that are stopping them from finally being together? Because we have to remember, relationships don't only begin at the end of seasons, right? — Sandra Gonzalez
30 Rock finale recap: We'll see you in heaven, Kenneth
''Wassup? Nuthin', just giving a dumb tour to a bunch of uggos. Let's meet up later and smoke some drug cigarettes.'' — Kenneth, whose thing is to smile creepily all the time
— Emily Exton
Cougar Town finale recap: Beach party!
Not only was the party a perfect excuse to bring everyone together for a first-season last hurrah, but the sand provided a no-exit situation for Bobby, who runs away from bad news, but can't if his entire body is buried in the sand! — Annie Barrett
Modern Family recap: Luke puts the 'He' in 'Hero'
Once again, Luke was a gleaming gem this episode. From falling asleep to his grandfather's stories about the '60s, to being plastic-wrapped and walking Hurt Locker-style (pure genius!) across the lawn, I've grown to appreciate and crave his hilarious and slightly delayed responses to things. — Emily Exton
Gossip Girl finale recap: Big developments (and letdowns)
Either you're disgusted that Jenny would sleep with Bass-hat after he tried to rape her in season 1, or you're disgusted at the thought of Jenny sleeping with Chuck period. Nevermind. I won't make you choose. Let's just call this bad form all around. — Sandra Gonzalez
The Big Bang Theory recap: When Leonard met Sheldon
Sheldon's disappointment upon discovering neither he nor Leonard perfected time-travel in the future: ''If either of us ever invents time travel, we agree our first stop will be this meeting today in precisely five seconds. [Waits five seconds.] Well, that's disappointing.'' — Kate Ward
24 recap: Jack Bauer is Iron Man!
And for the love of God, Jack's injured! What can a bleeding man accomplish in the next two hours? (A lot, says Yuri, ''because nothing's more dangerous than a wounded animal.'') — Lynette Rice
How I Met Your Mother recap: Ted's ready for his close-up
I can't help but think that what Ted needed in this episode wasn't the love and support of a caring girlfriend — it was a swift kick to the teeth. — Margaret Lyons
Castle season finale recap: Decisions, decisions
How badass was Beckett saying ''he already knows,'' when the mistress asked her not to tell her husband about her affair? Answer: Very. — Mandi Bierly
Brothers and Sisters season finale recap: Massive pile-up
Both Rob Lowe and Calista Flockhart were amazing in that scene. She could have been screaming for help, but in that moment, when you find out that someone you love may really be dying, you're lost. Sometimes you can't yell. Maybe it's your brain's way of pretending it really isn't happening. Because if it was, of course you'd be yelling. — Mandi Bierly
Survivor: Heroes vs Villains recap: Did the jury blow it... again?
That's not to say I'm hating on Sandra. She tried to make a big move and engineer Russell's ouster (only to be stymied by dumb Heroes) and also manipulated Russell into getting rid of Coach when she and Courtney were about to be sent home. Good for her. But she simply wasn't as impressive as Parvati. — Dalton Ross
Fringe season finale recap: 'Over There, Part 2,' a kiss, a 'death,' and 'the monsters in our skin'
Avoiding sci-fi jargon when old-fashioned metaphors will do, Bell says that Olivia can open a crack in the universe-portal, but they need to make a ''door-stop'' to hold the door open for a full return. — Ken Tucker
American Idol recap: Texas toast
Do I wish Casey had at least tried to make a race of it by selecting something current and unexpected — and rearranging it to suit his bluesy style — for the ''Contestant's Choice'' part of this week's program? Do I wish he'd latched on to the competitive aspect of Idol with the jaws of a pitbull and the spirit of a Kris Allen reinventing ''Heartless''? Well, yeah, sure — if only to infuse tonight's telecast with a little suspense. — Michael Slezak
Lost recap: The will and the way... to the end
The return of the original John Locke is nigh. I suppose we should sweat the prospect that Fake Locke's consciousness could come streaming into Sideways Locke's body should Jack's surgery trigger Island Enlightenment. But this is why this is a two-man — and two-Jack — operation. In the Sideways world, Jack will fix Locke's spine and facilitate Locke's awakening. — Jeff Jensen
The Good Wife recap: Killing the dog, too
Titus Welliver and Matt Czuchry are going to be the Batman and Robin of evil justice when it comes to the Florricks next season. — Ken Tucker
Dancing With the Stars recap: Ocho-sunko
I felt like there could be more to the story, like Anna's transition from cold-hearted snake to warm-blooded mambo mermaid could be its own Lifetime movie if they'd just flesh it out a little. Jonathan, how exactly did she become Part of Your World? — Annie Barrett
Celebrity Apprentice recap: Bret Michaels shows off his cold sore!
Okay, and whom did Bret get? He got Summer, who's a diligent worker. Good selection. And then he got Darryl Strawberry?!? The worst Celebrity Apprentice contestant ever? And I mean that, too. Sure, Blago may have been an ineffectual joke, but at least the dude was AWAKE! All Strawberry did on each task was sleep or talk about wanting to go to sleep, before finally quitting because he simply missed sleep too much. — Dalton Ross
