From LA Examiner: Photo Preview of 'Happy Endings'; Andrew Miller Teases 'The Secret Circle'; Advance Reviews of 'The Middle's' Return & 'Revenge'...


"PHOTO PREVIEW: Happy Endings throws a roaring 20s party"

Dress-up isn't just for Halloween time anymore! Or, you know, for kids... In the second season premiere of Happy Endings, "Blax, Snake, Home," the gang dons their finest flapper attire for a themed housewarming party in Penny (Casey Wilson)'s new condo. And if you thought that meant these characters had matured past red cups and bad slavery jokes, you'd be sorely mistaken! ... [MORE]

"The Middle season premiere muddied by the Ray Romano/Patricia Heaton reunion"

The setting alone makes this feel like it should be summer fodder, but the subject matter only solidifies it stronger as a vacation time miniseries. Unfortunately for the series which really is an exciting escape, it is premiering in a week, when anyone who does summer out on that island will have packed up and gone home, and those looking to sit down with a strong network drama might want something with a little more meat on its bones. As much as we’d love to reminisce about summer escapades, we have to get back to real life-- and watching these insanely rich folk prance around without a care in the world while we’re chained to our computers once again just makes us…well, as vengeful as the main character! ...
