Insurgents from Hollow Earth resurface in the next episode of "Sanctuary," resulting in a happy reunion and an unexpected betrayal. Kate Freelander is back on Earth, instead of inside it. (The best part of that news, however, is that Agam Darshi is back on "Sanctuary. " I've missed her these past few episodes.) In the sneak peek for "Acolyte," airing at 9 p.m. Dec. 9 on Syfy, Kate and Will (Robin Dunne) interrogate an abnormal who is part of the Hollow Earth team plotting an above-ground attack.

I'll tell you what - let's weigh the pros in cons in four important categories. May the best party style win! Cost Bar: I've seen drink packages in the $45 range. Are you crazy?

It's an undeniable fact that technology continues to change the way we live. In this day and age, we are definitely interacting with one another in very new ways. But fellas, in the case of pursuing a young lady, new doesn't always mean better. In short, stop asking for social media contacts when you first meet women! On a recent weekend, I overheard several inquiries from guys directed at women to the effect of, "Hey, are you on Instagram?" or "I'll find you on Facebook.

While the Bartlett native's roommate reports to his logistics job downtown...
