Let’s start with a review for the new USA Network series Common Law which stars an actor that the ladies swoon for, Jack McGee.  Um, just kidding, unless the ladies have blue hair.  I’m talking about Michael Ealy, most recently the co-star of Think Like A Man and best known as Ricky in the Barbershop movies, as well as for his charming looks and rugged (yet oddly often boyish) personality.  In Common he plays Travis Marks, a Los Angeles cop (yes, ANOTHER cop show) whose police captain (the aforementioned Jack McGee) forces him into couples therapy with his longtime partner Wes (Warren Kole) that he no longer gets along with to the point that it’s affecting their cases.  The two do indeed bicker like an old married couple, quick to expose each other’s insecurities and such.  Sorta like The Odd Couple if they were cops, with Ealy being Oscar Madison if Oscar could really get those attractive women he was always seen with.  So after two episodes how does the show stand up?

E4's Misfits has gone through a bit of a shake-up since its 3rd season ended last year.  Original series cast members Antonia Thomas and Iwan Rheon both exited the show; and Lauren Socha's 2012 conviction for racially-aggravated assault is likely the reason she's no longer only pretending to do community-service.
