TV Geek Out 141: Lost, "Recon"

If any of Lost's flash-sideways deserve to be spun off into their own shows, it's the tantalizing glimpse we saw of Sawyer and Miles as cop buddies during "Recon." Who wouldn't want to watch the adventures of James Ford and Miles Straume as members of the LAPD who laugh, learn and love? Those are the lessons Ford seemed to be catching onto as he watched "Little House," blew a date with Charlotte Lewis and apprehended a certain fetching fugitive. Meanwhile, on the Island, Sawyer was playing a game with big stakes, hoping to set up UnLocke and Widmore so that they'd take each other out. "Recon" may not have had the most answers out of Season 6's episodes, but it sure was entertaining. Dana, Perry and Heather geek out about it here.

TV Geek Out 140: Gleek Out!

The show that makes you smile when you say its name is back! Yes, Glee has returned, and though the second half of the season -- which goes well into June -- has a lot to look forward to, including new love interests, new choirs to compete against, and the much-touted Madonna episode, TV Geek Out takes a look back at what made the first half of Glee's first season so great. We geek out over Artie, Rachel, Finn, Puck, Mr. Schue, Emma and, of course, Jane Lynch as the incomparable Sue Sylvester. We anticipate Glee's New Direction for the second half of the season with a full-on TV Gleek Out, comin' up right here!
