Supernatural kicked off its tenth season with a six-week time jump and an intimate story that moved last season’s cliffhanger forward in a compelling way while failing to launch any big storylines. This was new territory for a show that religiously uses premieres to show the audience a glimpse of where they’re going in the episodes to come. What we found in “Black” was our favorite characters in vastly different places than where we left them.
Last week’s massacre at Diosa, beyond taking down a slew of escorts, put Henry Lin and his Chinese gang in everyone’s crosshairs, and the lie that he was responsible for Tara’s murder has now entered everyone’s ears, even Lin’s own.
Last week on The Strain, the board was set for one seemingly final assault on The Master and his army of bloodsuckers. With their base camp destroyed and everyone taking some sort of vengeful stance against the vampires that have ravaged the city, it's time to take the fight to the doorstep of the enemy. Thankfully, “The Master” does not disappoint, capping off a first season to remember.
The first four episodes of the fifth and final season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire felt a little light on the body count for the normally bloody bootlegging drama. Sure, there have been a few grisly murders, yet Joe the Boss and Sally are the only two regulars six feet under. Forget ‘No One Goes Quietly,’ Season 5 is starting to feel like ‘No One Goes At All.’
This week's Doctor Who is so controversial, you might have already heard about it. Still, just to be safe, you should click into our recap and see what we have to say.
Working all the angles means having one’s eyes and ears in all places at once, which is virtually impossible, even when everybody’s working together. Jax has been biting off more than he could chew for years now, but his schemes are now a lot more impulsive than they used to be, and SAMCRO is a lot more transparent than it used to be. Which is how we get to another signature Sons of Anarchy massacre.
It's hard to believe that the final season of Boardwalk Empire is already half-over. Time is running out for HBO's consistently brilliant but often overlooked period piece. And while this season hasn't always delivered the 'good stuff,' it's still better than most dramas on TV and deserved a longer shelf life. But it's about the bottom line. How many people are tuning in? How much does it cost? Or should I say, "Cuánto?"
With just one week until The Strain's first season finale, it's time to start upping the ante a little. Did "Last Rites" give the series new life, or is it one step closer to the grave?
Robots, personal drama, and a fair amount of spillage? Looks like a job for "The Caretaker!"
“Playing with Monsters” opens with the elaborately constructed resuscitation scene from the softcore porno Skankenstein, which is one of the greatest things this series has ever given us, but this half-nude abomination is not one of the “monsters” the title is referring to. Of course, almost everyone on this show is some kind of a creature.
The first two episodes of the final season of Boardwalk Empire were focused on the past and how "those who cannot remember it are condemned to repeat it;" and yet, as this week illustrates, George Santayana's other famous quote is equally apt for Season 5 (and the series as a whole) so far: "Only the dead have seen the end of war."
This week on The Strain, both the adults and the kid go off wandering, with one finding a more positive outcome than the rest. Plus, Eph and Fet work on their pissing match skills.
Big Brother delivered its second eviction of the week, and the last one we'll see before the grand finale a week from today. Who won the last Veto competition of the season? Who made it to the Final 3? And was someone blindsided tonight? We'll get to that, but first let's talk about the wrap-up from last night's episode.
This week on Sons of Anarchy, Jax tries to do things to help the club and ends up doing something that could put him in unexpected danger. Good old Jax.
Big Brother's alternate reality TV week has come to an end, and the Rewind certainly panned out better for some houseguests than others. Had the Houseguests not pushed the button, Victoria likely would have gone home last week and who knows what would have happened from there? But the button was pushed.
