TVLine Turns 5: Chuck's Proposal, House Hijinks, Fringe Betrayal and More January 2011 Plot Twists

TV Spoilers Bones Castle Chuck

If you thought TVLine’s review of the big news stories breaking at the time of our January 2011 launch was a trip down memory lane, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

As our fifth birthday celebration marches on, here we recount the storylines that were unspooling at the time — on shows that are still with us (including Bones, Castle and Grey’s Anatomy) or have since passed on (such as Smallville, V and The Office.) Fringe, we must remind you, is currently airing Season 8 Over There.

What waylaid Chuck‘s proposal to Sarah? What was bothering Criminal Minds‘ Reid? Who crashed a Desperate Housewife’s nascent romance? You may recall the answers to those “spoilers,” but click through this slideshow just to be sure. (Warning: May induce waves of nostalgia.)
