The stars of NBC's “Grimm” were put through an acting exercise while filming “Beeware,” the latest episode debuting at 8 p.m. Nov. 11. In the episode, Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) are called to a case where a flash mob results in a homicide involving a swarm of bees. When fans watch the episode Friday, they'll see the bees. Giuntoli, Hornsby and their co-stars did not while filming. “It was just bizarre acting with bees that weren't there,” Giuntoli told me recently.

*1/2 (out of four)   FYI: When punching a lizard in the face, it's called giving him “the thunder cookie.”   At least, that's what Hank (Dwayne Johnson) calls it when protecting his stepson Sean (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from 2008's Brendan Fraser vehicle “Journey to the Center of the Earth”) as they fight for survival on a remote island that only Jules Verne, Robert Louis Stevenson, Jonathan Swift and Sean's eccentric grandpa Alexander (Michael Caine)

***1/2 (out of four) “I [bleeped] up my life because of the way you sing.” Jesse (Ethan Hawke) hurls that back-handed gem at Celine (Julie Delpy) during an epic fight in “Before Midnight,” director/co-writer Richard Linklater's follow-up to 1995's “Before Sunrise” and 2004's “Before Sunset.” What began as a hopeful-if-bittersweet toast to romantic opportunity and transitioned to adult disappointments and difficult choices with more at stake has become a profoundly authentic depiction of a struggling, textured long-term relationship.

I'm just saying: “Breaking Bad” has become a bit overrated. Obviously, it's great. The performances are great, the ambience of dread created throughout the show's five seasons is great, the mechanisms by which the plot evolves tend to be great (although not all the time), but all told, in the cannon of long-form narratives told as television series(es), it's a been a bit overblown by the hype machine.  Again, I love “Breaking Bad”. It's as addictive as Walter White's blue meth.

This Sunday is the Oscars, and in preperation you should listen to my appearance on "The Winners and Losers Podcast" with Chicago comedians Hank Thompson and Jeff Steinbrunner right here .  We talk "Django," "Zero Dark," "Argo," "Silver Linings," "Beasts," and all the rest. We make predictions and bitch about what deserves to win. Offensive comments are made. Larger social and political contexts are explored. Everyone gets laid at the end. Also, if you're watching the broadcast on Sunday and have the Twitter nearby, I will be...

Detectives Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin investigate a home invasion in the latest episode of "Grimm" debuting at 8 p.m. Nov. 4 on NBC. But as you'd expect in a show about fractured fairy tales and an episode titled "Bears Will Be Bears," it isn't your normal case of breaking-and-entering. Nick (David Giuntoli) and Hank (Russell Hornsby) meet a mysterious family whose cultural background blurs the line of right and wrong, not to mention human and, um, not human. Nick also asks his new wolf buddy, Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell)

The DIY Network's show "Desperate Landscapes" is coming to Chicago and wants to find the ugliest, most desperate landscapes in the area. The show, hosted by licensed contractor Jason Cameron, takes dilapidated, disgusting yards and turns them around in eight hours to be the most beautiful lawn you could ever imagine--one that would impress even yard enthusiast Hank Hill from animated sitcom "King of the Hill. " To be featured on the show, you should: be "funky, fun, [and] personable," be surrounded by neighbors that like you and live and work in the...

Change is good, the saying goes, but for the characters in "Breaking Bad," change has been anything but good. Over its 4 1/2 seasons, the Emmy-winning AMC drama has examined, among other things, the way two men can take the same route to very different places. Timid, cancer-stricken chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) transformed himself into a drug kingpin and cold-blooded killer. His partner and former student, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), was a cocky addict with a "bitch" catchphrase.

Yep, it's almost over. No, not the Bears' season. Only the most pessimistic fan would fear the worst from a 3-0 team. Rather, "Breaking Bad" has just one more episode remaining to incinerate our nerves before its five-season run ends Sept. 29. And if you were watching Walter White - er, Bryan Cranston - and friends Sunday instead of tuning in to Bears-Pittsburgh, we understand. So to fill in the gaps, we've matched up the key players from Sunday's game with their "Breaking Bad" counterparts: Walter White: The undisputed star of the...
