Hello, friends. It's about time for a new Longmire tonight. This show is just so good! Robert Taylor and Lou Diamond Phillips are just excellent on the series, aren't they? And, we learned a little something new about Phillips' character, Henry Standing Bear, last week. Oh, boy, did we!
We already knew from last season that Sheriff Walt had gone to Denver for some payback after his wife had been stabbed to death there. What we found out last week was that Walt had gotten hurt during the melee and was unable to go through with his intended revenge killing. So, his best friend, Henry Standing Bear, had taken matters into his own hands. Walt is a bit sore about it, feeling he should have done the deed himself instead. The friends finally touched on the subject last week, when Walt was notified that Detective Fales from Denver had asked them for information on Henry. That, of course, was set in motion by Cady asking questions about her mother's death. Ruh-roh.

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there! When you've had your fill of adulation for the day, kick your feet up for the latest episode of Falling Skies
. The third season is off to a good start. We came back from last season's ending (where Hal had a little techie alien critter crawl into his eye) to find that he's now 'paralyzed' from the waist down. It's all in his head, people. Literally. His former girlfriend, now-alien-overlord Karen, is controlling him. We saw that he can walk, and do quite a bit more than that! Hal and Karen were having sex in the woods while he thought he was asleep. Could she be trying to get pregnant from her human ex? It's a fair question, you know how devious white trash aliens are!

Hello, friends! It's a lovely Sunday, but there will be time for some TV viewing this evening when a new The Killing
airs. I feel like this season, the third, is actually off to a great start. This story setup is more promising than the Rosie Larsen mystery, don't you think? The kids are more interesting than the Larsen family, and let's be honest, the Larsen father was the only family member in the first two seasons that you weren't just ready to punch after a few minutes. Yes, they have replaced one bad mother for another this season, but the kids and their horrifying circumstances are infinitely more interesting.

Well, well, so ABC has finally decided to let us finish watching the series Zero Hour
this evening. It's about time! As you may remember, the series which marked Anthony Edwards return to television was not met with a big welcome and ABC quickly pulled it from their schedule. Quickly, as in they only bothered to air THREE episodes before yanking it. That's not really a lot of time for a new series to find an audience, but I guess we shouldn't give the 'audience' that much credit since they frequently choose reality crap over quality scripted programs. Lame, people. So lame.

The latest superhero extravaganza is upon us this weekend. This time around it's one of DC Comics biggest names, the iconic superhero Superman, flying into theaters in Man of Steel
. The mostly invincible alien badass is played by British actor Henry Cavill in this incarnation, while one of our favorites, Amy Adams, takes over as journalist Lois Lane. And, talented actor Michael Shannon takes on the role of baddie, General Zod.
In the movie, directed by Zack Snyder, we see the journey of Kal-El as he is raised as Clark Kent and finds out his extraordinary powers as a young boy, and eventually becomes the hero he was meant to be. Though the movie is sitting at only 57% at Rotten Tomatoes
, I am still looking forward to seeing it. Do I expect it to be as great as DC's The Dark Knight
movies? No, but that movie's writer, David S. Goyer, did the screenplay, and one of MOS
's producers was none other than the Batman series' Christopher Nolan. So, despite some of the reviews from die hard Superman fans, I will be going in with an open mind.

Hello, friends. I am seriously geeking out in a big way today! That is, of course, because the first trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
was released today. You know you are as ridiculously giddy as I am over our impending return to adventure in Middle Earth! Last December, we welcomed back Gandalf the Grey, watched nervously as Bilbo did exactly what we knew he would do, and were floored by the awesomeness that was Richard Armitage as hero Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
. This December, I expect Peter Jackson's magical turn with the Tolkien classics to continue its excellence when the middle film of the trilogy is released.
