Last week's episode of "The Walking Dead" focused exclusively on Rick, Carl and Michonne, so it makes total sense that this week's episode, "Inmates," brings us up to speed with the rest of the surviving members of the cast. This episode wasn't full of compelling plot twists (well, maybe a couple) and it didn't do a deep dive into the psyches of the main characters.

Watching from afar Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov , on his visibility after attending only his second game of the season when his team played the Atlanta Hawks in London: "Frankly speaking, there's a lot of criticism that I am not in Brooklyn. But, I just have a question for you: Do you really think you need to be sitting in the arena to see a game? My friends, we are living in the 21st Century.

He joked about it this week when a reporter asked him to explain, saying it was a run call … or a pass call … or sometimes a play-action fake call, depending on which direction the wind is blowing, which way Denver's offense is heading and the jerseys the Broncos are wearing. But, really, what is he doing with that call? He sure barks it out enough, at least 40 times in the divisional playoff game against San Diego.

Indoor malls may have a limited lifespan, according to Rick Caruso, owner of Southland centers including the Grove in the Fairfax district and the Americana at Brand in Glendale. In a Sunday keynote speech to some 4,000 people at the National Retail Federation's convention, Caruso said the industry is “on the verge of the rebirth of brick and mortar retail.” “I've come to the conclusion that within 10 to 15 years, the typical U.S. mall, unless completely reinvented, will be seen as a historical anachronism, a 60-year or so aberration that no longer meets the public's, the consumer's or the retailer's needs,” Caruso said at the New York City event.

Lund, as Heidi, is the more glamorous one; Blasucci, as Angelica, the less glamorous one.

"A tribute to what has taken place there," Neuheisel said during the Pac-12 Networks Football Podcast.
