In tonight’s episode, Dennis Quaid gets to walk into a bar, listen for a few seconds to the rude comments of a boisterous patron, then throw him through the window and out onto the street. Yes, I know this fact-based story is set in 1950s Las Vegas – but from Quaid’s demeanor to his wardrobe, this new CBS series really is a wild Western in disguise.

Breaking Bad fans, take heed. Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) wants to hire an unscrupulous lawyer to craft a very crafty pre-nup. Who ya gonna call? Better call Saul! Or, at least, guest star Bob Odenkirk, who plays Saul the slimy attorney on Breaking Bad. And who, on seven previous occasions, has played slimy lawyer Arthur Hobbs on this sitcom.

Walking Dead fans, take heed. Tonight IFC repeats the original iconic zombie movie – George A. Romero’s 1968 low-budget classic, the one that set the filmmaking rules by which Walking Dead still plays.

With the 2012 presidential election now only about a month away, here’s a timely showing of Mike Nichols’ very funny, and quite insightful, 1998 political satire, which stars John Travolta and Emma Thompson as a very Clintonian power couple.

Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, who since her days playing Don Johnson’s daughter on Nash Bridges has played a number of increasingly risky roles – from a femme fatale on Prison Break to a psychotic witch on Two and a Half Men. Tonight she has a more mainstream guest role, as an entertainment reporter who’s attracted to Castle (Nathan Fillion). And, based on this photograph, the feeling’s mutual.
