A Quick TV Fix: '90210's' Newest Character, A 'Bones' Betrayal & Will There Be a 'Las Vegas' Finale?
9021-Older Sister: Has a third Clark kid ever been mentioned? Not as far as I can recall. But with Naomi's parents mostly M.I.A., their first born is set to descend upon Beverly Hills this Spring. Jen Clark, who's described as a "supremely self-confident bad girl" will soon be back in BH and the 20-year-old troublemaker is supposedly smart, cultured, well-traveled and totally worshiped by her baby sister. But Naomi's adoration will prove to be a problem, seeing as Jen is a compulsive liar and completely amoral. Producers are currently looking for a recognizable star to play the role. Any ideas?
Sweet (& Sour) Love: What's the right move when you accidently see your therapist's woman trying on wedding dresses with another man? Booth and Bones will debate the dilemma -- and the merits of marriage -- after spying Sweets' girlfriend Daisy doing this exact thing. But as one couple faces a break up, another couple could be reuniting. Online, anyway. Angela and Hodgins will sign up for the same internet dating service and the computer database seems to think they're a perfect match.
Vegas Revisted?: Rumors of a solid Las Vegas finale have been swirling since last Spring when NBC canceled the show without giving producers time to write a proper farewell. With all the reader questions regarding this rumor, I thought it best to investigate. My findings? It's a definite maybe. NBC insiders say nothing's been decided, but with Knight Rider kaput, executive producer Gary Scott Thompson is now free to potentially write said finale. Plus, he's apparently got a few friends/fans at the network, so yeah, this could happen.
Friday Goodnight: Get ready to cry. Friday Night Lights will bid a fitting farewell to Smash Williams, one of the show's beloved characters, this evening. Coach Taylor delivers a monologue on the A&M practice field which -- unless you're dead inside -- will move you to tears. But as Smash rolls out, a few fresh characters take center stage, namely Matty's mom and Tyra's new man Cowboy Cash. And there's some seriously quality Coach and Tami time on tap... two very fine scenes that prove they are TV's best couple.
Also on the schedule tonight? The premiere of Animal Planet's Jockeys, a documentary-style look at the lives of six men and women who race horses for a living. I've never really watched much AP before, but this is the network's first soapy type dramatic series, so I guess I'll start now. This evening's first ep focuses on a veteran rider versus an 18-year-old newbie: their rivalry, comraderie and personal responsibilities. It's pretty sweet. My pick for new program of the week.
