Judd Apatow - I know all that stuff. He’s fine. Whatever. It just made me want to watch freaks and geeks or anchorman again. NOT his other movies.

The Hour - 2.5
With Marnie enjoying her own cookery programme, Hector agrees to move to ITV for a larger salary, partly as a sop to Marnie as he is infertile. Lix and Randall visit the French embassy but there is no news of their daughter. Bel is appalled to read that Rosa Maria has been killed, assuredly on Cilenti’s orders and wants to stop the investigation, claiming that, as journalists, they should uncover the truth. AND NOW I STOP COPYING FROM IMDB. WHAT IS A SOP? They all go to the club and there is a raid, I guess cause Freddie went to the chief or whatever. Kiki talks to the chief guy and tells him about a wall filled with incriminating photos. Marnie and Hector go to bed together.

Leverage - The Long Goodbye Job
This was the final episode. In it, we hear a story from Nate about a failed job that killed all the rest of our team! It is very sad, but we’ve still got half an episode left! His interrogator tells her version of the story, but still has some holes. Then Sterling comes along and we go through their investigation, which turns out to be part of the job anyway, and they make a clean break, all alive, thanks to a little help from Sterling. Then Nate proposes to Sophie using her real name! Which isn’t actually! Those jerks! Lastly, Parker is given Nate’s job and Eliot and Hardison join her for Leverage International, using the info they stole in this job! I think it was a very good send-off for the series. I liked this show a lot! I was kind of late to the game on it, but got caught up in the third season and loved it. It wasn’t always perfect, but it was always a fun place to visit every week.

Tron: Uprising - Tagged
Some people are running around tagging things with a “Tron Lives” slogan. Beck heads out to find them, and recruit them for the resistance. He finds them, and one of them is Mara! He resists having her help him, but he can’t reveal his identity! In the end, they do a little plan, barely making it out alive. The other two guys don’t want to do it anymore. Mara does, but Beck rejects her. Well, she is now more determined than ever!

Wedding Band - I Don’t Wanna Grow Up
The band has to play at Eddie’s boss’ event, and he freaks out about it. Also, did you know Barry was his brother? Huh!

Fringe - Anomaly XB-6783746
They have the kid observer and try desperately to get him to help them, but he is just not the same. They get Nina to help, and he eventually connects with her, but it is too late, and she must make the ultimate sacrifice to protect her friends. Later, we find him and he connects with Walter, and now we know that “Donald” is September! Yay! I guess the major point here comes when Nina tells the observers that humans have evolved past the “powers” that the observers have, and that maybe the observers aren’t so superior after all without emotion.

The Hour - 2.4
Some stuff happens. For example, the one lady and that new leader guy have some daughter in France and they found her and were sad and stuff about it. Another thing was Freddie’s wife feeling jealous of Bel and leaving. Another thing was Hector dealing with his friend hitting dimple-chin. Another thing was Hector getting a lead, but it was to throw the others off the real story, and they are too late and fall right into the club-owners scheme. Stuff like that.

Leverage - The Toy Job
A dangerous toy is about to go on the market, and the toy company is ignoring their employee’s report about it. The plan is to get some other toy trending, so they find a doll that has a creepy interchangeable head, Baby Joy Rage. After an initial failure, they market the toy as a communication tool for parents, and it works. Then they are able to get the other toy tested and save the day! It was a pretty good episode, I’m not doing well describing it. At the end, we get a tender Nate moment.

1600 Penn - Putting Out Fires
When I first saw promos for this show, I was like…what? but then…like umm…. So I checked it out in this special preview. It is a wacky take on the White House, with the focus mostly on the president’s son, Skip, the funny Josh Gad. I sort of like the heightened reality, where the President and his dealings with other countries is crazy and just funny, bypassing any weirdness of it being too close to reality. There is also stuff with the daughter, two other kids, and the wife, who is a stepmom to these kids. We will see how this progresses, I suppose.
