After the solo Hannah episode two weeks back and last Sunday's focus on Ray and Adam, once again "Girls" is allowing its focus to flesh out a particular character, with Jessa (Jemima Kirke) getting the spotlight. The episode kicks off with her and Hannah (Lena Dunham) at the Manitou train station, about an hour outside of New York City, where they're awaiting Jessa's father and a weekend out in the country, in an episode that seems to ultimately serve as a goodbye to the character for a while.

It has to be either the best or the worst idea in television. Though the concept of a Hitchcock prequel starring that kid from “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” conjures an image of a slow-motion train wreck, for those who like their characters nutty and their storylines nuttier (a.k.a. the “Twin Peaks” brigade) a first-look clip released for new series “Bates Motel” should satiate any post-“Twilight” bloodlust.

If you’re anything like us, the last several weeks have been tinged with political intrigue, Robin Wright, and a massive helping of Freddy’s BBQ as Netflix’s “House of Cards” laid out its first season. Of course, the Kevin Spacey-led series snagged a boatload of publicity upon release, but whether that would turn into viewers proved another question entirely, and luckily the initial outlook is positive.

The date may have drifted out of awareness, or alternately been plaguing every thought since its announcement, but the return of “Arrested Development” nonetheless lies only a few short months away in May. That means more hints as to what we can expect from Mitch Hurwitz and co. for season four, starting with a few name guest stars joining in on the madness. Minor spoilers below.

It's probably just coincidental, in fact, we're almost entirely sure it is, but just a few weeks after Netflix's remake of the BBC's "House of Cards" debuted, the original's writer, Andrew Davies, has scored one of the biggest jobs in British television. And we mean biggest in its literal sense, because Davies has been tapped to adapt Leo Tolstoy's not inconsiderable tome "War and Peace" into a six-part miniseries.

Watch: Meet Dr. Lecter In First Trailer For 'Hannibal' Starring Mads Mikkelsen

Try as we might, we can’t think of another drama on network television that we’ve been quite so intrigued by for a long while. The great Mads Mikkelsen playing the iconic Dr. Hannibal Lecter alone would have been enough, but we’ve also been encouraged by what producer Bryan Fuller has had to say about the show. “Hannibal” will follow the cable model of a 13-episode first season, with the title character’s murderous nature to be revealed within two seasons – after which the structure of the show would dramatically change (given it gets that far, of course). Fuller apparently pitched a seven-season arc to NBC, which will please viewers who normally have to approach network dramas with a "I know they’re making this up as they go along" approach.
