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)

*** (out of four) Any movie that hinges on the secret contents of a videotape intentionally mislabeled as “Cubbies win World Series - 1995” has a sick, dark sense of humor. In the unexpectedly funny, consistently engrossing “Charlie Countryman,” Charlie (Shia LaBeouf) leaves Chicago after his mother (Melissa Leo) passes away and, in a vision, tells her son to go to Bucharest, Romania. Detached from his ex (Aubrey Plaza, in a single scene) and apparently not working, Charlie obliges, though maybe he's just subconsciously thinking of the problems LaBeouf had in...

It wasn't supposed to be like this. They were not supposed to leave Soldier Field on Sunday afternoon on the losing end of a 10-3 game against the struggling Kansas City Chiefs. The Bears were not supposed to leave Soldier Field unsure if running back Matt Forte would play any time soon. They were not supposed to leave Soldier Field with a fan base questioning who should be playing quarterback next week at Denver. And they most certainly not supposed to leave Soldier Field looking like a team destined to be watching the playoffs instead of playing in them.

When "Shameless" star Jeremy Allen White describes the Season 1 scene in which his character peed on his father, you have to wonder if the actor is sensitive - or demented. "It's kind of beautiful when the father steps out of the stream of urine and realizes, 'this is right,' and he steps back into it," the 20-year-old White, who plays Lip Gallagher in the Showtime series, said. "It's kind of romantic and beautiful in a way. I think he's taking it because he knows he did something terrible.

Niall Matter found the perfect role when he joined the cast of  "Eureka. " "I'm not unlike Zane in a lot of ways," said Matter, speaking of Zane Donovan, the snarky, bad-boy physicist he's played since the second season of the Syfy series about a town of genius inventors and scientists. Matter isn't a physicist, but he knows computers well enough to have recently fixed co-star Neil Grayston's. His eight years working on Canadian oil rigs when he was younger prepared him for the action-hero-worthy stunts he gets to do as Zane.

I've been bi my entire life. It was never an issue in both my marriages (to women) as I was monogamous. But now that online dating has taken over single life, I find myself having to declare my sexuality prior to getting to know someone. I don't want to lie and identify as straight, but I tried an experiment recently and identified as bi and it was as if I said I had leprosy. Yet I find when I'm getting to know someone and there's a connection clearly apparent to both of us and discuss it, 99 percent of the time, it's a non-issue.

 **1/2 (out of four) The National have staked out a reputation as some of America's preeminent sad indie rock bros, an impression they've nurtured through being the kind of band that wears dark colors and records videos of themselves looking incredibly serious. The group also has, particularly following 2010's “High Violet,” risen to the status of being one of the country's best, most beloved rock bands, placing them in an awkward position: The sad indie rock bro makes an uncomfortable rock star.

**1/2 (out of four) In the imaginary, low-budget moviemaking handbook, there are 10 chapters on stories about money-starved small towns and resourceful kids forced to confront their positions without a reliable parent for support. The Illinois-set “Future Weather” falls smack in the middle of this indie subgenre, and it's neither a disposable piece of formula nor an engrossing tale that makes the most of its standard parts. Thirteen-year-old Lauduree (Perla Haney-Jardine, looking a little like Katherine Heigl in “My...

*** (of 4)   One of the ironically timeless issues with the rap genre is how its artists deal with aging. Rockers can gracefully mature with time, or, in the case of the Rolling Stones, just never ever ever ever go away. But in hip-hop, whose topics sometimes-but-rarely venture beyond youthful subject matter, popular rappers who are north of 30 either lie about their age--2 Chainz did this for a bit; Birdman still does--or do anything possible to stay relevant (Snoop Lion, I am looking in your direction)

You might have noticed us trudging around the city - a sorry band of misfit zombies, clad in black, bewilderment painted on our faces. No, this has nothing to do with the umpteenth "Twilight" movie coming out. I'm talking about the plight of Chicago Republicans. There are more of us than you may think. We live among you. We eat where you eat, shop where you shop and work where you work. We are your friends, your family and in some cases (most cases) your bosses. (Joking!) Thousands of us attended election night parties last week, and we've been...

If Chicagoans weren't already sickened by the allegations in the Penn State child abuse scandal, they will be after they hear Mike Ditka's defense of Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. "I think it's very unfair, but that's the media," Ditka said in an interview with Action News in Philadelphia. "He did what he was supposed to do and unfortunately, great people get dragged down when stupid people do bad things. " Alas, it looks as if Joe Paterno, who was fired by university trustees Wednesday, did some bad things himself.

Dig deep enough in anyone's closet and you'll find a couple skeletons. None likely as severe as the one that came tumbling out of Brandon Marshall's early Wednesday morning, when news began circulating that he was arrested and accused of punching a woman in the face in a Chelsea nightclub over the weekend, just before the Bears gave up two third round draft picks to bring him to town. Granted, Marshall's skeletons make any of our own past transgressions seem downright trite in comparison.

*** (out of four) Predictable. Corny. Those terms certainly fit “Trouble with the Curve.” Guess what? They fit the vast majority of sports movies. Though not without its flaws, “Curve” is a movie you root for. Veteran baseball scout Gus (Clint Eastwood) has spent his life knowing what players to get behind. Now, with three months left on his contract, Gus can barely see, but he'll be damned if he lets the younger folks in the Atlanta Braves organization (including a slimy, sexist Matthew Lillard)

Turn off that light; it's wasting energy. Do you really have to drive? You remembered to separate the organics for the compost bin, didn't you? Even with an ever-growing chorus of tipsters giving such advice in everyday life and pop culture, it's not easy being green. Max Boeh of Lakeview says he has trouble keeping up. The 23-year-old does his best to live green, but sometimes he falls short - particularly when it comes to recycling. He has been known to toss plastics and other reusable items out with the rest of the garbage.
