“Revenge” producer Mike Kelley is kind of a genius. I try not to throw that word around lightly, but the Winnetka native earns the praise for creating a must-see, damn-it's-not-on-this-week drama at 9 p.m. Wednesdays on ABC. I'd call it a guilty pleasure, but I feel no guilt at all enjoying it. Kelley's real genius - and I'm an idiot for not seeing this earlier but I was too preoccupied with all its soapy goodness - is that he's...

Remember way back in the fall when "Revenge" debuted on ABC, viewers were plopped into the middle of a war of wills between Hamptons Queen Bee Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) and Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp), the woman who could become her daughter-in-law? The two ice queens were toe-to-toe at the Fire & Ice engagement party for Emily and her beau, Daniel (Josh Bowman), when a scream sent everyone to the beach, where it seemed Daniel had been found dead. Well, in "Chaos," airing at 9 p.m. Feb. 15, we finally learn what happened that fateful night.

  ** (out of four) Will (Nicolas Cage) clearly has not seen “The Box,” or any number of movies about making deals with the devil. Otherwise, following his wife's (January Jones) rape, Will might not accept a stranger named Simon's (Guy Pearce) offer to kill the rapist free of charge. Well, free until Simon has to ask a favor of Will with consequences that, surprise surprise, this English teacher has not considered in the least. With its pay-it-forward vigilante scheme, “Seeking Justice” becomes a mystery low on secrets and an ethical...

0.5 stars (out of four ) A comedy that provokes only sadness, “The Big Wedding” features several stars that a casting agent would hire if trying to exact revenge on me personally. So no, I didn't go into “The Big Wedding” expecting much. Any critic who claims pure objectivity for a wedding-related romp co-starring Katherine Heigl, Robin Williams and Diane Keaton and written/directed by the writer of “The Bucket List,” should not be trusted with words, sharp objects or heavy machinery.

Things don't look good for Col. Philip Locke in the latest episode of "Strike Back. " The season's sixth episode, which I'm calling "Locked & Loaded," is so action-packed it almost feels like a season finale. Just check out the exclusive RedEye video clip above in which Stonebridge (Philip Winchester), Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) and Martinez (Milauna Jemai Jackson) confront Mairead McKenna (Catherine Walker) and her Irish terrorists in the streets a Budapest. What happens after the scene will blow your mind.

Her parents, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, wrapped up their divorce settlement in seemingly record time earlier this month, but it's Suri Cruise who's grabbing most of the headlines. Eonline.com is a particular harbinger of Suri stories, drumming up such fantastic headlines as "Suri Cruise Is Determined to Jump This Puddle -- Does She Make It?" (OK, that story ran way back in March. Seriously, that's a real headline, look it up.) We took a totally fictional peek inside the mind of the probably-super-cranky 6-year-old to see what her life might be like.
