Every Monday, Flashback brings you up to speed with the buzz and latest news on all things arts and entertainment you may have missed during the weekend.

Writing about the new A&E show The Cleaner and TNT’s Saving Grace, Salon’s Heather Havrilesky tells us where to find God. (Hint: It’s foamy and delicious, and some “friends” have suggested we drink too much of it.) We tell Heather: Marry us already, will you?
