While this week's episode is ostensibly about Tinkerbell joining the Neverland fun, it's hardly the big excitement, if you ask me. No, Ed Kitsis and Adam Horowitz did something pretty remarkable in that [spoiler ahead; consider yourself warned]…

One of the reasons Spike Jonze remains so interesting as a filmmaker is because each individual piece of art he creates seems to exist in its own world, and only when you set it all next to each other and consider the full range of what he creates do you get a full picture of just how emotionally rich and complicated his body of work really is. I'm almost glad I hadn't seen all of "Her" yet when we spoke at this year's Toronto Film Festival, because I think I might have been too emotional to fully articulate my reaction at that point.
Jonze can certainly indulge his goofball side with very silly things, but he has also made movies that contain devastating endings, broken-hearted masterworks that clobber the audience with a bracingly direct quality. I would argue that "Being John Malkovich" could be on a short list of the very saddest endings of all time. I remember being horrified by it the first time I saw it and wondering why more people weren't just battered by the suggestion of Cusack's fate, of the hell his daily life would be living silently trapped behind someone else's eyes. "Adaptation" was one of the most complicated and difficult emotional reactions I've ever had to a movie, and it took me a long time to work my way up a second viewing. And then "Where The Wild Things Are"… well, we've said enough about that.
The thirty-ninth season of “Saturday Night Live” has seen a lot of changes in its cast from the past few seasons, but really not much change in terms of overall quality. You take the good, you take the bad, you take the Drunk Uncle, and there you have the facts of “SNL” in this decade. It doesn’t matter if you throw up a seemingly slam-dunk host like Tina Fey or a potential wild-card like Miley Cyrus: the core elements of the show are what they are, meaning that there’s little in the way that’s going to change until the new writing staff figures out how to work with the new cast in ways that honor the show’s history while forging its future.

"The Walking Dead" returns with an emphasis on character development
Season 4 doesn't miss a beat with new showrunner Scott Gimple, says Tim Goodman, who adds: "What feels most promising is that by establishing more of the myriad characters, you just know that once you get to know them and their stories it's going to be a lot harder to lose them. And that's good for the drama." PLUS: The slower pace is a brave move, it seems like we're headed towards "Nowheresville," how Gimple approached Season 4, Robert Kirkman wants every character to have a reason for being there, and this is "Walking Dead's" best premiere yet.
