Get Your Tissues Ready

Community on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

Parks and Recreation on NBC at 8:30pm ET. I understand this is the last episode for Ann and Chris. The show’s already been renewed for a 7th season, so feel free to use the comments for wild speculation and unsubstantiated casting rumors regarding filling out the cast (or not) for the next season.

White Collar on USA at 9:00pm ET. Fifth season finale.

How Do They Do It? on Science at 10:00pm ET. They’re covering civet coffee in this episode, so if you’re familiar with that and feel like making your coffee snob friends squirm a bit, enjoy. If you haven’t heard of civet coffee (which seems impossible in the age of the internet) then familiarize yourself. I would not recommend reading that while you have coffee in your hand, because even though it’s likely NOT civet coffee, the association will be hard to shake.

Elementary on CBS at 10:01pm ET. I keep meaning to catch up on this since I’m watching that other “modern Sherlock Holmes” series and I’d like to see how they match up. But “catching up” on Sherlock is only nine episodes total, not 35 episodes. This is the one advantage I can see to the British habit of very short “series.”

Genevieve Burgess has her work cut out for her should there be another snowy weekend this winter.

    You know, I've had beer brewed with civet coffee beans (because sometimes I just do things for shock value, sue me.) And it was really very tasty. Way more bitter than I anticipated and with a higher alcohol content than I was looking for at a casual brunch with my friends and all of our kids but I would totally get it again if I could find it.

  • NateMan

    I have to admit, this season of Community has been much better than I expected. I anticipated a total shitshow after last season and Harmon's return, but it's been bizarre and highly entertaining.

  • googergieger

    Well I got my tissues ready, and I have to say that was the most forced masturbation I've ever had in my life. No idea what the hell you thought was going to be so sexy on any of these shows.

    The cat poop coffee didn't do if for you?

  • googergieger

    Cat Poop Coffee? What does Weird Al's cover/parody of Cat Scratch Fever have to do with anything?

  • e jerry powell

    See my cute civet! It eats coffee cherries and poops magical coffee!!!

    CIVETS ARE MAGICAL, GODDAMMIT!

  • e jerry powell

    I feel more comfortable with a happier-looking civet.

  • e jerry powell

    Now, see, what I objected to was that they showed only one Thai farmer of perhaps a few dozen using genuinely wild-sourced Kopi luwak beans; the vast majority of "wild-sourced" coffee farmers in the region -- none of whom were shown or even referenced, naturally -- actually use captive civets in what amounts to a puppy-mill looking system, where the civets, who are generally wide-ranging, territorial and omnivorous, are either individually caged and fed nothing but the coffee cherries, making them malnourished, anxious and self-harming, or are fenced onto a plantation and eventually attack each other because there are too many civets in comparatively too small a space.

    Not to mention that I don't like coffee at all, much less coffee that costs upwards of $30 a cup.

    BTW, that furry thing up there looks angry.

  • Community was chock full of Brie. Me likey

    My question is, when is Tatiana Maslany coming back?!

    Elementary is not that bad. I was originally skeptical that it would be able to match Sherlock in quality but I think it's acquitted itself very well.

    I've never been a fan of Rob Lowe's character but I think the tears will flow anyway...

  • BWeaves

    I initially avoided Elementary, because I was a Sherlock snob, and a female Watson, really? Then I rented the DVDs of the first season and I was really blown away. It's quite a different take on the character compared to Sherlock, and actually quite a good update, given Holmes' drug addiction. Lucy Lui's Watson really won me over. I'm now at a point where I think I like Elementary better than Sherlock (heresy, I know), because the characters are growing and the links to the original stories aren't so "wink, wink, nudge, nudge" as Sherlock's. They actually give you a good mystery each week.

    Definitely rent it from the beginning. The characters grow and change as they get used to each other, and there is a slight story arc over the entire season.

    That said, I love both Sherlock and Elementary because they are so different, and not copycats of each other. It gives me twice the Holmes fix.

  • Ben

    You're not alone on prefering Elementary to Sherlock these days. After watching Elementary, Sherlock actually felt like a worse show because of it. Like I love the slow build up to an actual friendship that Watson and Sherlock had in Elementary. It's like 5/6 episodes before they even get past just really disliking each other. It makes their freindship feel more earned and in retrospect makes the friendship between Sherlock's Sherlock/Watson seem kinda fast.

    The only weak link in Elementary for me is Mycrof and his pedophile moustache.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    Elementary is actually kind of, in the general vicinity of, really quite close to, considering its CBS procedural, 20+ episode format, excellent. It's a different take on Sherlock, sure, but not one I think is in any sense invalid. Even Watson works, and that was one I was skeptical of.

  • NateMan

    I was really enjoying it, and then it got bumped off our DVR for some reason. And since CBS is about as stupid as you can get, what with not putting their stuff on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, and only having a couple episodes on their shitty web player, we gave up on it. And I wish we'd had another option.

  • BWeaves

    I rented all the Elementary episodes from Netflix without a problem.

  • NateMan

    Do you mean on disc? Because I've never seen it on instant.

  • BWeaves

    Yes, sorry, on DVD. I'm not "instant" compatible.

  • John W

    I think what they did with Irene Adler/Moriarty was a stroke of genius.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    It was pretty well inspired. I'm a little uneasy about how they may be taking things moving forward, but yes, their initial stab at it was excellent.

  • e jerry powell

    I love geek TV. And the timing is perfect, right between Anthony Bourdain in my television and Jon Stewart in my television.
