One of the most lovable and over-eager characters on NBC's original series Heroes, Hiro Nakamura (played by Masi Oka) is set to reprise his role in the upcoming NBC mini-series Heroes Reborn.

Hiro was a bubbly and eager young man with the ability to manipulate space and time. He was one of the biggest success points of the original series, and his return bodes well for the upcoming successor. Oka was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his role on Heroes.

Are you missing Downton Abbey and devastated next season will be its last? Fear not: you don't have to wait another year to get another fabulous BBC period drama! The greatest show you're not watching, Call the Midwife, starts this Sunday at 8pm on PBS. 

Call the Midwife chronicles the lives of the midwives of Nonnatus House in London's impoverished East End, where the women deliver babies but also offer general medical care to the residents of their ward. These strong women live and work together under the watchful care of the nuns who run Nonnatus House. It's a little bit funny, a little bit sweet, a little bit feminist and a whole lot of top-notch acting with gripping storylines. If you tune in, you will be glad you did, guaranteed.

"Psychic in the Soup" broached the divisive issue of whether or not the law should apply to all people equally. Dr. Fuentes and Dr. Brennan colluded to bribe foreign officials and smuggle drugs into Cuba in the spring premiere episode. What gives them the right to commit felonies without consequences and should they be punished? How did they get law-loving FBI Agent Booth to help out? Moreover, isn't it way out of character for law-abiding Brennan and Booth to commit such a crime? Worthy questions all. Let's discuss.

Okay, to be exact, Brennan and Fuentes didn't collude; they didn't actually plan to commit a crime together, which is what "colluding" means. Cam caught Rodolfo "Dangerously Dashing" Fuentes at the Jeffersonian with a wad of cash and a box full of prescription drugs. His intention was to bribe Cuban officials to look the other way while he or his countrymen smuggle the drugs through Mexico and/or across the Gulf of Mexico. From there his compadres would sell the contraband on the black market and they would all get disgustingly rich on the addictions of children and the disadvantaged. SCRE-E-E-E-E-E-CH! Wait. No. That is not at all what was going to happen once the drugs got to Cuba, was it? That would even be out of character for Dangerously Dashing.

Backstrom is back after a three week hiatus with a lead-in by the ever popular crimedy Bones. Hart Hanson created both shows so the possibility that the Bones crowd might give Backstrom a try is high. However, these two shows are very different and will appeal to some, but not all. Backstrom's variety of crazy is an acquired taste. 

"Give Till It Hurts" brought several surprises to viewers. Some good, some hard to swallow. We get to see Backstrom decked out in a tux at a swanky fundraiser where he runs into Amy, his ex-future wife. It's always good when Amy is around because although these two have history and issues, they have even more chemistry. Backstrom's problem is that he cannot figure out how to interact with Amy without totally effing it up. (*face palm*) Every single time they are together, Backstrom assumes too much and goes in for an unwelcome kiss. Amy is repeatedly disappointed and not a little disgusted with his presumptuousness. (Though she secretly enjoys the kisses.) The good news is that Amy is the Star of Bethlehem. Now, if Backstrom could just get his head out of his ---.

It was nice to see Liz finally out of the super nosy judge's hot seat and participating in tracking down bad guys in "The Longevity Initiative." She's finished with the interrogation that doubled as a counseling session, and joins her team in their journey to find Blacklister #97 who preys on the disabled as his lab rats. Julian Powell is the mad scientist who is on a quest to eliminate mortality, seeking a way for humans to live forever.
 
Tom Keen is back, seemingly for the rest of the season, but he wasn't performing any eleventh hour rescues of Liz. No, he was too concerned with saving himself from a crop of new/old enemies who want to see the chameleon dead. So we were back to The Blacklist formula that we've come to expect - Liz seeking to bring down evil and Red sort of helping out but with his own ulterior motives in play.

Not gonna lie. I found this episode of Grey's Anatomy to be less than stellar. Perhaps that's harsh, but in a season that's been so exceptionally good, "With or Without You" was not. Instead, it was disjointedly presented and unevenly written. Having said that, despite the fragmentation, we got to know Owen's mom a lot better tonight. We also finally learned what went down in Washington, D.C. between Derek and his fellow.
