Brian Markinson in The Firm, Grimm preview, Portlandia's BSG episode, and general updates

A few updates to wrap the week.

Let's start with yesterday's episode of The Firm. Brian Markinson made an appearance and if I hadn't trusted the press release (which didn't mention him) over IMDB, I totally would have posted a heads-up. You can watch the episode on It will be available until February 17.

Grimm is back tonight at 9 pm on NBC and Portlandia's BSG ep, "One Moore Episode," with Ron Moore, Edward James Olmos and James Callis, airs at 10 pm on IFC.

Synopsis & teaser for Grimm 1x08, "Game Ogre:"


An escapee returns to Portland seeking revenge against those who put him behind bars. His unusual strength and high tolerance for pain makes Nick (David Giuntoli) take notice. As the case escalates Nick and Juliette (Bitsie Tulloch) are put in danger, and Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell) is called into action to help put an end to the convict’s deadly rampage. Russell Hornsby, Reggie Lee and Sasha Roiz also star.

Elsewhere, Ryan Robbins is still working on Falling Skies, currently on episode 2x07, and Mark Verheiden mentioned he was writing another episode.
