Two super important episodes this week. The dark fairy tale police procedural Grimm is back with a really pissed off Nick; let's hope this Prince Eric looking fellow shows the rest of the world why it's a bad idea to sleep with a Grimm's girlfriend. Plus, this could be the Community where Jeff meets his long lost dad!
Adventure Time (7:30 PM, Cartoon Network)
Finn searches for "The Great Birdman."
"Finn and Jake get lost in the badlands and are saved by Xergiok, ex-Goblin King who now lives in a cave."
Continuum (8:00 PM, Syfy):
A collection of murder suicides get the attention of the future-hunting Scooby Gang.
Kiera and Carlos investigate when two murder-suicides happen in the same day - where the killers immediately committed suicide after eliminating their victims. The only tie between the two is a local computer gaming company, where both were software testers, that's been doing more than just developing video games; it's developing an immersive holographic program and Kiera decides to try it out.
Being Human (9 PM, Syfy):
Josh has to rediscover the monster inside to save his fangy pal from the claws of a natural werewolf.
Lost Girl (10 PM, Syfy):
Bo goes home to the farm and wears an amazing picnic table checkered dress, as you do when you are going to a farm. Fingers crossed for a nasty family reunion.
Also on TV tonight: A new The Regular Show on 8 PM at the Cartoon Network, followed MAD's re-telling of the "George Washington: Cherry Tree Chopper" legend. There's a new Crash & Bernstein at 8:30 PM on Disney XD, The Following at 9 PM on Fox and a new Castle on ABC at 10 PM.
Robot Combat League (10 PM, Syfy)
More robots punching each other. What else did you expect?
Also on TV tonight: The Science Channel hosts a very special episode of Alien Encounters titled "The Invasion" at 10 PM. Also, Looney Tunes Show and a new Level Up!
Dragons: Riders of Berk (8 PM, Cartoon Network):
"Fishlegs finds a special gem, but a flock of dangerous Changewings want it back." Precious gems, dragons and children — the perfect fantasy tale combination.
The Neighbors (8:30 PM, ABC):
Once again The Neighbors drops a ridiculous title with little to no explanation: "I Believe I Can Drive." Our bet is this episode will be focused on an alien, learning how to drive.
Also on TV tonight: Psych on USA at 10 PM. And Stranded on Syfy at 10 PM.
Community (8 PM, NBC):
"Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations" appears to be the Thanksgiving episode that was pushed back (along with their Halloween episode) thanks to NBC's schedule tampering. Oh well, look on the bright side — rumor has it this is the episode you get to meet Jeff's dad!
Archer (10 PM, FX):
"Archer heads to the Mexican border to capture a notorious coyote, which is Spanish for coyote." Anyone else feel like Archer is slowly filling the humor void left by Community?
Also on TV tonight: A new episode of Big Bang Theory on CBS.
Grimm (9 PM, NBC)
Grimm is back! Hooray! The creepy fairy tale police procedural returns with a massive showdown between fairy tale slayer Nick and his evil boss. Needless to say, Nick is none too happy that Captain Renard has been diddling his fiance. The supernatural shit is about to hit the fan in this second season premiere.
Cult (9 PM, CW):
Cult moves to its new Friday time slot. Lets hope the Friday night death slot can boost the series ratings, or this might be the end of our meta reality TV show Cult conspiracy series.
Jeff finds a surprise visitor in Nate's apartment who tells him about a dangerous on-campus game that Nate had been hosting known as "Being Billy," which involves role-playing scenes from past "Cult" episodes. Jeff and Skye follow clues that might explain the next scene the players will try to recreate. Meanwhile, E.J. searches Nate's laptop and finds that he's been active online and sent a cryptic email to a hidden recipient list. On the television show, Kelly confronts Billy.
Touch (8 PM, Fox):
Lucy is pissed and goes off the rails, and now it's up to Kiefer Sutherland to fix her mess, if he can.
After three years of searching for Amelia, Lucy's frustration and fury peaks. When she takes matters with Calvin into her own hands, he offers an unthinkable deal for Amelia's return. As Martin and Jake search for Lucy, they enlist Trevor (guest star Greg Ellis) at Breakwire to help. Meanwhile, Guillermo is reeling from his recent sins in Mexico, and he makes some life-changing decisions after running into a defeated man hiking through the Arizona desert .
Merlin (10 PM, Syfy):
Gwen has become Morgana's plaything, and it's time someone put a stop to it.
The warlock is determined to break Morgana's twisted control over Gwen. But it will be no easy task, even for Merlin, as only the most powerful magic can save the Queen - and the high priestess will not give up her puppet without a fight.
DC Nation (10 AM, Cartoon Network): Green Lantern and Young Justice circle the drain in their last few episodes.
Also on TV today: A new TMNT will air at 7 PM on Cartoon Network. Power Rangers: Megaforce will air at 1 PM on Nickelodeon, which will be followed by Supah Ninjas on Nickelodeon at 8:30 PM.
Once Upon a Time (8 PM, ABC):
Snow goes dark to save her people, because going dark fixes everything! Will Mr. Gold survive this epic showdown between Cora and Snow when he's the weapon? Who cares? Here's a ton of pictures of Michael Raymond-James with a sword. Ya welcome.
The Walking Dead (9 PM, AMC):
At some point everyone is going to stop talking, and start fighting... right? This is what the 88th episode where Rick and friends discuss what they are going to do about the Governor and the Governor talks about what he's going to do with Rick but no one actually does anything? Alas the most recent clip for the next episode is more talking about talking... sigh.
Also on TV today: Fox rolls out the animated goodies, starting at 7:30 PM. And at 8 PM National Geographic Channel Wild is airing a special titled Kingdom of the Oceans: Predator's Paradise. All we're asking for is one scene with a shark floating around to the tune of that Coolio song, just one.
