It’s hard to believe we are already five weeks into Supernatural season 5 and coming up on the episode with the most controversial guest star the series has ever had: Paris Hilton.
In the 5.0 5 episode Fallen Idols, written by Julie Siege and directed by Jim Conway, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester, who have put dealing with the apocalypse aside of a bit as they are learning to hunt together as a team again, find their first job leads them to a small town whose inhabitants are being killed by famous dead icons like Abraham Lincoln and James Dean’s car. With the brothers already struggling to make sense of the goings-on, they become even less sure of what they are hunting when two teenage girls come forward and claim PARIS HILTON kidnapped their friend (the real Paris Hilton in a cameo appearance as an unknown entity impersonating…. Paris Hilton).

Another thrilling install of 90210 without preamble let’s dive into the ReCap of Episode 2.5 Environmental Hazards. This week’s Episode opens with a good pre-credit string of activities – Navid is funny as the new non-virgin guy. Silver sees Jackie at Adrianna’s AA meeting and Dixon gets busted by Sasha, Naomi gets told she can’t go to her dream school and Liam wimps out can’t play Naomi the voicemail. All of this in the first five minutes, good start to the episode
After the break Liam gets his phone taken in class by Ryan so you know at some point he’s going to find out the truth and probably for some dumb reason delete the message. The mean girls try and cheer up Naomi and convince her to fight for admission to her dream school. I’m starting feel like I’m watching last year’s Gossip Girl. Ryan catches Liam going through his desk searching for his phone and flips out. What happened to cool guy Ryan from last year? Oh right, some student accused him of inappropriate contact and he had a relationship with Kelly which is enough to turn any man crazy. So I can absolutely understand him turning into an Assclown, but really, is anyone happy in Beverly Hills?

Disclaimer – My internet isn’t working properly this week so I’m not going to be able to fact check this week’s Re-cap so there may be errors. If so feel free to point them out and I’ll correct when I get to decent Wi-Fi.

Two Dean Winchesters and a Watchman connection — that’s what this Thursday night’s new episode of the hit CW series Supernatural promises viewers as episode 5.04 The End airs at 9PM EST.
In The End, which was written by Ben Edlund and directed by Steve Boyum, the viewers find that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester are still estranged from each other even though Sam has called his brother up to tell Dean he wants to rejoin him in the battle of the Apocalypse. Dean puts the kibosh on that, telling Sam that they are better off apart. After talking to Sam, Dean is visited by Zachariah (guest star Kurt Fuller), who continues to pressure him to fulfill his destiny and become a vessel for the archangel Michael so that he can defeat Lucifer.

Three weeks into doing show re-caps I’ve tried a couple of different methods – Tivo the show, watch the entire show and then provide you with a summary, that was a lot of work because it meant I had to "memorize" the details so I’ve started to do these re-caps "live" as I watch the episodes unfold. This way if something surprising, good, or funny happens hopefully it’ll come through during the re-cap. Anywho this week I wrote the re-cap with a pen and paper because I forgot my power cable at work. I tried to write in the Gossip Girl style but halfway through I just got annoyed calling everyone by their first initial. Now on to this week’s episode.

After Gossip Girl’s massive improvement between episode 1 and 2 of their 3rd season, I’m holding out hope that 90210 will turn itself around this week and have at least a passable show. I’m not sure if it’s possible since they have made everyone on this show completely unlikable. I’m an eternal optimist. On to the re-cap.

Lets dive into this week’s Re-cap of Season 3, Episode 2 – The Freshman
One thing I have to say about Gossip Girl is the show’s producers LOVE NYC, the city looks beautiful in HD. I find it amazing how these high-school shows somehow always manages to keep the cast together for their College years. Doesn’t anyone in TV High School ever go out of state for College? This episode starts with everyone preparing for their first day at NYU. Blair (Leighton Meester) tells Chuck she’s moving into the dorms so that she can establish herself as queen of NYU. Really? How dumb is she? Chuck (Ed Westwick) rightly points out that they don’t have "queens" who rule NYU, only Queens who have tickets to Liza on Broadway – funny line. Serena is talking to Dan (Penn Badgley) who is nervous about going to NYU. In more Dan jerkiness this season, he actually has a groupie, someone who recognizes him from being published in the New Yorker. Really? People recognize authors who have only been published one time? Turns out the girl runs a writers group and invites Dan to join. I can see where this is going, Dan is going to become the BMOC this year and live up to his “Ultimate Insider,” label.

The Vampire Diaries is an even more depressing version of Dawson’s Creek, the only difference between the two shows is we have Vampires more boring and depressed than the ones found in Twilight. Now onto the Re-cap.

The folks at Spike TV got their hands on an extended preview of the upcoming Halo animated series, Halo Legends. I’ve made my dislike of the Halo franchise well known, but I’ve always thought the story was pretty good and this animated series is shaping up nicely.
Summer is coming to a close Blair (Leighton Meester) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) spent their summer being a couple. Chuck is in a coffee shop where a blond picks him up; Blair comes in and tells the woman Chuck is taken and stay away from her man. Turns spice up their relationship by playing games where Blair can play the role of the scorned woman. Serena (Blake Lively) spent the summer in Europe being a tabloid sensation, while the Humphries summered in the Hamptons and are enjoying being part of the lifestyles of the rich and famous, Lilly (Kelly Rutherford) is away caring for her sick mother, leaving Rufus (Matthew Settle) to take care of the family. Jenny (Taylor Momsen) and Eric (Connor Paolo) spent the summer hiding all the magazine articles about Serena from Rufus and Dan (Penn Badgley).

The show starts where we left off last week. Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) has Annie’s (Shenae Grimes) nude photos on her cell phone the problem is she doesn’t know how to send it anonymously so she flirts with a computer geek to get him to show her how. Her fellow mean girls, Silver (Jessica Stroup) and Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) interrupt before a deal is struck. Silver sees Dixon (Tristan Wilds) and is still upset over the breakup, once again vows to get him back. Meanwhile Navid (Michael Steger) is trying to restart the school newspaper and his jealousy of the new guy Teddy (Trevor Donovan) is growing. Liam (Matt Lanter) tells Naomi that he did sleep with someone but it wasn’t Annie but refuses to say who he did sleep with, so of course Naomi doesn’t believe him. Tracy (Christina Moore) goes over to Liam’s house and tells his mother to stay away from Naomi. His mother is the type who is scared to rock the boat so she tells Liam if he doesn’t stay away they will put him juvi. We finally meet Liam’s stepfather and it’s Smallville’s John Schneider playing a “domineering,” party/drunk guy who agrees with Liam’s mother that if he acts up again Liam’s going to juvi.
