Criss Angel's Mindfreak premieres
Before Criss Angel finds Five Ways to Die, we first look back at the violin-playing strippers and gyrating grandmothers of America's Got Talent.
America's Got Talent recap
Or maybe that should read business as unusual. After last night, I have to wonder how much direction these contestants get from the production staff in regard to their act. Maybe they're sending them down the wrong path on purpose in order to get that reaction from the crowd. Forget pole dancing Miley Cyrus. Carol Loo in a go-go cage? Now that's inappropriate.
You can read my full recap of last night's episode of America's Got Talent right here!
Last night, Syfy delivered a sad and serious episode of Warehouse 13 that took me by surprise. On the surface, it was about an ancient devise that attaches to the back of the victim, turning him into a human lighting rod of anger. While investigating, Myka and Pete find the body of another Warehouse agent who has been missing since the 1950's. They also find the woman who loved him alive and well, and looking for answers. The episode ends with the woman urging Myka to quit the job before it consumes her. A bit of advice most of us could use, perhaps in a smaller dose.
Last night's America's Got Talent highlight
Listen to the magic of The Voices of Glory.
Don't let work consume you today. Get outside. Do something fun. Play with your kids and-or your pets. Then watch some TV. Here are a couple of options to get you started.
Tonight's top TV picks:
Criss Angel: Mindfreak (10:00 A&E)
This week, the illusionist embarks on his Five Lives journey. Five death-defying stunts over five weeks. It all begins with the White Death. Criss will be placed in a transparent coffin then buried underneath a ton of snow and ice. Can he escape before hypothermia sets in? Since the show is called the Five Lives of Criss Angel, I imagine he will.
Dark Blue (10:00 TNT)
The clock is ticking as the team sets out to find and free a kidnapped woman. But there's another obstacle in their way. They must work with the FBI in order to complete the mission and Carter's deep seated grudge against the Feds is going to make this one very difficult day.
