A 'sinking' feeling on 'Grey's' premiere

Last night was the two-hour season 8 premiere of "Grey's Anatomy."

There's a lot to cover, so let's get started... Derek is still furious with Meredith for tampering with their Alzheimer's trial - even though she did it to help Richard's ailing wife, Adele. Derek and Meredith, who were granted temporary custody of baby Zola, are sharing custody, living apart. Derek is living in the frame of the house he and Meredith have been trying to build for years, and slowly but surely making progress on - with the help of Owen. Cristina, whom Owen kicked out of the couple's (fire)house because she doesn't want to have a baby, is living with Meredith. She can't bring herself to terminate her pregnancy because she loves Owen.

Alex, whom Meredith kicked out of her house for reporting that she tampered with the Alzheimer's trial, is bunking at the hospital. There’s tension in the hospital halls - Derek and Owen won't even look at Meredith and Cristina, a crop of new interns is starting (the requisite "A month ago, you were in med school being taught by doctors, today you are the doctors" was uttered - this time by Lexie) and it is the residents' last year of residency.

‘Whitney’ a dud in any era

Whitney Cummings may be Hollywood’s “It” girl of the moment, with two new shows premiering this week that she both co-created and co-produces.

But there’s a good chance that spotlight will flame out after last night’s debut of her self-titled sitcom on NBC.

It’s “Whitney,” the worst new show of 1998!

Friday's Top Five: Nostalgic movies

Today’s the first day of fall, and there’s something about this season that makes you feel nostalgic. Maybe it’s the falling leaves, the cooler weather or the chance to wear your favorite hooded sweatshirt. Whatever the reason, autumn has the mysterious ability to conjure memories of the past, and so do movies.

Have you ever watched "The Godfather" and swore you could smell Clemenza’s gravy cooking on the stovetop? Does watching "Rocky" during this time of year make you crave Thanksgiving turkey? Adrian’s bird looked pretty tasty before Paulie went ape-s-- and ruined it. It’s clear that movies can tap into our senses.

I’m sure everyone has favorite films that, for personal reasons, remind you of fond memories. This week’s list is devoted to movies that make you feel nostalgic and the classics that take you back in time. Tell us what movies make you nostalgic and why - here are my favorites:

Maria Bello is 'not in the mood' on 'Prime Suspect'

Maria Bello is 'not in the mood' on 'Prime Suspect'

In NBC's reboot of the British crime drama "Prime Suspect," you learn everything you need to know about Detective Jane Timoney (Maria Bello) in the first three minutes.

The show kicks off as Detective Timoney is finishing a run. She hails a cab, and after a brief rude interchange with the driver, Jane’s had enough – and expresses this by slamming her gun against the cab's partition as the cab screeches to a halt. She’s not in the mood.

A female homicide detective in NYC, Jane isn't afraid to resort to attitude when it comes to those who write her off, but Bello certainly isn't the first woman to play a strong female law enforcement officer. (Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson on "Law & Order: SVU" will always be my favorite.)
