Last week on Community, we left Britta pining for an ex-boyfriend of hers who works for a carnival. She asked Annie for some help with self control and to prevent her from calling or texting her ex. Unfortunately for Annie, she didn’t know what she was agreeing to, and Britta’s crazy ran all over. Jeff became obsessed with meeting Britta’s ex in order to find out what special power he possesses that enables him to have such a hold over women. Dean Layborne (guest star John Goodman) enlisted Dean Pelton in order to help him in his quest to get Troy to join the Air Conditioning Repair Annex and was yet again unsuccessful.

On tonight’s episode, “Virtual Systems Analysis,” when the biology final exam is postponed, Jeff encourages everyone to join him for a three hour lunch, but Annie convinces Abed to let her spend some time with him in the dreamatorium instead. What starts as an innocent simulation of “Inspector Spacetime” becomes a more serious examination of the study group members, and Annie learns a little bit about what makes Abed tick.

There was SO much info in last week’s episode of Missing. I’ll hit the high points (some of which made me so mad, I could spit nails. lol). Michael was *this close* to escaping but chose to go back in for Oksana. WHY would she choose to stay? Do they have something on her? Or is she not really a friend to Michael? He did find some goodies, including a phone, on his way back to his room, though. And then it looks like they are getting ready to take Michael elsewhere. Giancarlo shows Becca surveillance photos of Paul at a bank. She goes there and eventually gets into the safe deposit box of Paul’s, finding a deed to a house and some other stuff. Apparently Dax, the cute CIA dude, is having an affair with goth chicky who works for him. I’m so irritated about that. Hrmph. Finally, after originally being suspected of being in cahoots with Paul and being cut out of the investigation (again…), Becca, Dax, and others go to the address on the deed from the safe deposit box. She says she’s the best chance they have of disarming the security she is sure Paul set up. She enters a code, which stops the countdown timer…but only for a second. The episode ended with the timer beginning the countdown again. Lots of action, Michael is a smart kid (guy, cause he’s not really a kid heh), and a cliffhanger. Eek.

On tonight’s episode, “A Busy Solitude,” Becca must avoid being taken into custody. She decides to try a dangerous new tactic to get Michael back.

See it tonight on ABC at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Missing @ Clicker.

Grey’s Anatomy has been really hitting us hard lately, especially with the relationship of Cristina and Owen. There is always so much drama over at Seattle Grace, it’s a wonder there is ever any medical stuff getting done. These doctors have personal lives that make me tired just watching. I cried when Owen left, and my heart broke a little for Cristina when she went to her friends at the end to get help studying – so sad. A funny part of the episode was Mark making himself Chief for the day. He actually did a good job and pulled it off, though.

On tonight’s episode, “The Girl with No Name,” the doctors work on a Jane Doe, who turns out to be the subject of a case that gained national interest; Cristina proves to be the highest in demand as the residents begin their interviews for post-residency positions at prospective hospitals; and Richard is faced with an unsettling realization when he visits Adele at Rose Ridge.

To see how the residents deal with all their interviews, tune in to ABC at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Grey’s Anatomy @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/DVRing Missing, American Idol, Touch, Awake, Scandal, The Secret Circle, and The Vampire Diaries.

It’s been a long time since we got a new episode of Parks and Recreation. Last time, Leslie scored a big interview with Indianapolis talk show host Buddy Wood (Sean Hayes), but when the interview was canceled at the last minute, she went out drinking. However, a couple of hours later, the interview was back on – and Leslie unsuccessfully tried to put on a sober face. But her friends came to the rescue and helped the footage of the interview disappear before it could make it to air. Meanwhile, Andy prepared for his final exam with help from April and Ron, who even went as far as to go home with his teacher.

Parks and Recreation is always the highlight of the Thursday NBC comedies for me. The characters are so much fun – I especially like the trio of Ron, April, and Andy. And Leslie is always great. It’s amazing, looking back at that original 6-episode season, at how far this show has come! We are nearing the end of the season – and close to finding out if Leslie wins the big race.

In tonight’s episode, “Live Ammo,” when Leslie learns that the Parks Dept. budget is about to be cut, she persuades Councilman Pillner to make the cuts elsewhere, but there are unforeseen consequences for her campaign. Meanwhile, Ron and Chris visit a meditation center together.

Check it out tonight on NBC at 9:31/8:31c. Learn where to find episodes online of Parks and Recreation @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be watching/recording Missing, Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, Community, 30 Rock, The Office, Awake, Touch, and Sweet Genius.
