Alcatraz – “The Ames Bros.” & “Sonny Burnett” Preview

In back-to-back all-new episodes, two of Alcatraz’s most violent brothers, Herman (guest star Travis Aaron Wade) and Pinky (guest star Graham Shiels) Ames, who were notorious for nearly escaping in 1963, find something mysteriously amiss when they return to Alcatraz in the present day. In the second installment, Sonny Burnett (guest star Theo Rossi), a man with an incredible dark side who became ultra-violent during his stint at Alcatraz, returns.

Being Human – “I’ve Got You Under Your Skin” Preview

Aidan struggles to get the Orphan Vampire problem under control, while Josh’s sister tries to shake him from his post-Nora funk.


Lost Girl – “Vexed” Preview

The murder of a death row inmate leads Bo into a confrontation with a powerful new Fae adversary.

Smash – “Let’s Be Bad” Preview

Karen (Katharine McPhee) finds a new use for her acting talents as she joins Dev (Raza Jaffrey) at a high-powered government party. The drama between Michael (guest star Will Chase) and Julia (Debra Messing) heats up, as Eileen (Anjelica Huston) and Tom’s (Christian Borle) ambitious assistant Ellis (Jaime Cepero) forge an alliance. Ivy (Megan Hilty) senses trouble in her relationship with Derek (Jack Davenport).

So the question remains… What will you be watching tonight?

  1. Looks like its just alcatraz for me :) love how theres 2 eps back to back and its not even season finale yet

  2. Love all those shows listed here Ant, except for smash. Thank u for appreciating these lol

  3. “Sonny Burnett”
    should be played by Don Johnson
    that was his alias on Miami Vice 😉

  4. SMASH!

    • Yup. One of the best and most intelligent shows on TV for a very long time.

  5. Does anybody know where I can watch Being Human online? (legally of course) Hulu and SyFy’s website only carry the 1st 4 episodes.

    Also, I love Alcatraz.

  6. Yeah, Don Johnson should have played Sonny Burnett. Alcatrazs had repidly declining ratings and probably wont see a Season 2. Maybe JJ can convince them to try a 13 episodes Season 2 and order a back 9 if ratings move up.

    But then again I thought Fringe was a sure cancellation after Season 3 to be ended with a short miniseries to wrap up the series. Fringe has reached minimum requirements for syndication and ratings are bad (despite the high DVR ratings) so its done barring a surge in ratings for te final 8 episodes. I and many other would love to see a new series on cable merging Fringe and LOST – have 4 main Fringe members go for a nice “vacation” on the LOST Island brought there by Hugo who now runs the Island (assuming Alcatraz gets the aze – though he could do 2 shows at the same time if one was a summer series).

  7. Being Human was pretty good last nite. I do not watch Alcatraz but i probably will start back watching it since i just got Hulu Plus.

    Lost Girl, beep beep, waiting for season two to premire on syfy hopefully they can will season 3 the same time as they show it in Canada if since they will be showing season 2 here shortly.

    • @shycat – I hate to break it to you, but most of the Alcatraz videos on Hulu Plus have expired. It’s only the latest 4 or 5 episodes available now. So, you wouldn’t have the first part of the series available.

      • thanks for letting me know b-list pornstar extra.
