Raising the Bar: In two season, this may have been the first time any of the public defenders didn’t believe in their defendants when Lindsay Wagner passed the pregnant drug addict. Naturally Zach Morris got all high and mighty when they tried to keep her in jail when everyone else on the planet knew what was best for mother and child was some forced rehab. It seems like every other episode Zach gets a DA to do a favor yet he never compromises on anything, and if there was one case he could have, it would have been this one.

Rescue Me: Bummer, I had Damian in the who was going to bite it this season office poll. Oh well. And could Ellie’s death been any more telegraphed?

You can stream current episodes over at Hulu.
Leverage: It was bound to happen that the gang would run into their doppelgangers and it certainly lived up to the hype besides the silly car alarm fight the computer geeks had. Too bad they won’t turn up to battle each other later, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some of them individually again. Hopefully the main guy gets a new crew together to get Nate back for double crossing him. You can stream current episodes over at TNT.tv. You can also download Leverage on iTunes.

Next Week Pick of the Week: Rescue Me, Tuesday at 10:00 on FX: It was revealed this week that the show has an end date of 2011, a decade after 9/11 with nineteen episodes spanning over the next two years. Oddly enough co-creator Peter Tolan says Maura Tierney may also return. But the current season comes to a close Tuesday and something big likely coming down as both Janet and Sheila were conspicuously absent last episode.
