There is something a little sad about knowing that whether or not you win or lose your case, it's the last one you're going to get for a while.  Think about it, it doesn't matter whether Nick and Pete give their best performance in court tonight or their worst, it doesn't matter whether they phone it in or pull out all the stops.  No matter what they do, no matter what they try, tonight's episode is their last for the season.  It'll probably be a big case, and we're excited for it, but it's disheartening to know it's their last for some time.

    Ever since moving to Friday nights, "The Defenders" has managed to rack up some serious guest stars.  This week they're having Kathy Griffin on the show and we know this is a stretch for her, but Griffin will be playing an insult comic.  That's right, Griffin is going to be playing one of those obnoxious comics whose shtick revolves solely around making fun of folks.  Griffin, of course, would never ever do anything like that, but we kind of think she'll manage to find her way clear to acting as though she could.

    One of our favorite guilty pleasure movies is "Nothing But Trouble."  The film stars Dan Aykroyd (it was also directed by him with a screenplay by him as well) in two different roles, one of which is that of a judge.  It is our most sincere hope that Mr. Aykroyd will have his judge on this episode of "The Defenders" be a whole lot like the judge in "Nothing But Trouble."  We're not suggesting that he send people to Mr. Bonechipper, but if the threat were made we'd be happy.

    Many folks out there think of Dean Norris as being on "Breaking Bad," but not us.  No, we think of Dean Norris as being the face of the government on "Tremors: The Series."  We know what you're thinking, but yes, there was in fact a series based on the "Tremors" movies and yes, Dean Norris did appear in said series.  That was the first time Dean Norris came to our attention and it was instantly what we thought of when we learned that Norris was going to guest star this week on "The Defenders."  Actually, we're still saddened that "Tremors" didn't get a second season and hoping Syfy may still renew it all these years later.

    The famed actor James Brolin will be appearing this evening on "The Defenders" as Jerry O'Connell's father.  Well, not Jerry O'Connell's father as much as Jerry O'Connell's character's father.  That is to say, the actor James Brolin isn't going to be playing the father of an actor, but rather the father of a lawyer who acts rather childish.  Now, if you consider the fact that so much of the law shown on the series is theater, then you could possibly argue that Brolin will be playing the father of an actor as O'Connell's lawyer is an actor if the law is theater.  Get it?  Good.
