The ex-wife who won't leave on 'A Gifted Man'

If you watched only the first ten to 15 minutes of CBS’ “A Gifted Man” and then changed the channel, it’d be understandable.

Dr. Michael Holt, played by Patrick Wilson, is a talented New York City neurosurgeon so dedicated to his profession that he’s seemingly failed to develop interpersonal skills. He doesn’t wish his assistant (played by Emmy winner Margo Martindale, yet another asset to this lauded cast) happy birthday, fires a tech who failed to deliver to his standards in the OR, and is brusque with his sister.

None of that makes for a likeable character…until his ex wife walks into the room. And then we realize his sister was right: He is a lot less of a jerk when she’s around. FULL POST

Where is Peter Bishop on 'Fringe'?

When last season's finale for "Fringe" ended, the all-knowing Observers informed us that Peter Bishop had been erased from existence, which got a collective response of "Errr... wha??" from fans.

But the loss of Peter is something of an "It's a Wonderful Life" scenario, where we see that quite a few things are different since he's not around.
