Arrow Season 2, Episode 18 - Deathstroke: 3 DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs
Once again, Arrow fans were treated to an explosive ‘mid-mid season finale.’ Or was “Deathstroke” the superhero series’ ‘mid-mid-mid-season finale?’ It’s hard to keep track with all these breaks in The CW’s schedule for Starling City’s crime-fighter. It’s also hard to complain about the gaps when every new cycle manages to outdo the previous stretch. In just the last few weeks, we got the origin of the "Suicide Squad," the "Birds Of Prey" and “Deathstroke.”
Glee Watch Season 5, Episode 14: New New York
Gleeks, last night's Glee fast forwarded to a couple months after graduation. Now most of the gang is in NYC. Kurt and Blaine are living together, Rachel is a Broadway star, Sam is a coach potato, and Mercedes is recording East Coast style. So how are our Gleeks adjusting? Well, some better than others.

How I Met Your Mother Finale Watch: The Story Ends With 'Last Forever'
How I Met Your Mother aired its finale tonight, and if you haven't seen it yet, stop reading now! Major spoilers ahead. After nine seasons, How I Met Your Mother was apparently not about how Ted met his kids' mother, but rather...
The Walking Dead Season 4 Finale: End Of Line
Spoilers if you haven't seen the Season 4 finale of The Walking Dead ("A")! Rick Grimes has proven in the past that he's willing to cross the line for the sake of survival. And now it seems he's finally willing to accept that reality for what it is. If someone tries to kill him or his people, he tries to kill them back even harder.
Arrow Season 2, Episode 17 - Birds Of Prey: 3 DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs
Last week’s episode of Arrow really spoiled audiences in terms of tie-ins to the DC Universe. "Suicide Squad" not only saw the formation of Task Force X but also featured probably the biggest cameo to date with a shot of an incarcerated Harley Quinn. And it was only the seventh installment of the second season. How could the The CW superhero series possibly follow that? Well, by bringing the “Birds of Prey”…
Glee Watch: Season 5, Episode 13 Watch: New Directions
Gleeks, last night was Glee's 100th episode part 2. We had a lot of plot action in this episode from graduation to the Glee Club/New Directions being definitely kaput. Let's recap, shall we?
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 17 - Mother's Little Helper
Dean and Sam still aren’t talking and now Dean is dealing with the intoxicating allure of the First Blade (his “precious” as it turns out). Those withdrawals lead to an obsession with finding Abaddon and being reunited with the blade that keeps Dean at the bunker while Sam journeys to Illinois to solve the case from the cold open. As soon as Sam cracks the front door Dean cracks open a bottle of booze. He’s in a dark place right now.
The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 15 Watch: Us
Spoilers if you haven't watched tonight's episode of The Walking Dead ("Us"). After a particularly disturbing episode in "The Grove," tonight's installment of The Walking Dead bordered on uplifting, which is a rare thing for this series.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episode 17 - Galentine's Day
Parks & Rec celebrates another Galentine's Day with a redundant, but funny episode that matches up the cast in ideal fashion. Leslie and Anne's long distance relationship is having a hard time maintaining as well as Leslie would like, so she decides to have a covert freeing off under the guise of Galentine's Day.
Arrow Season 2, Episode 16 - Suicide Squad: 3 DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs
Forget the DCU tie-ins, just keeping track of the superhero series' schedule is complicated enough. Arrow has been on a spotty rhythm, airing for a week or two and then taking several off between episodes but this time the show is back for three consecutive adventures and could very well air every Wednesday the until second season’s finale. Wishful thinking? Perhaps. Plus, it’s hard to care about breaks right now since we just saw the “Suicide Squad.”
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 16 - Blade Runners
Outside of the terrific scenes with Magnus this episode felt scattered and unfocused. Look, we all know Crowley is the show’s most eccentric ongoing villain. This season has seen the brothers form an uneasy alliance with the king of Hell as they try to stop Abaddon, so I’m glad we’re seeing different sides of Crowley. Part of his charm is that he’s a complex antagonist.
Glee Watch: Season 5, Episode 12 Watch - 100
Gleeks, last night was Glee's 100th episode. We saw some familiar faces (Mercedes, Quinn, Puck, April) and revisited favorite songs, high school wounds and scandalous pasts.
The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 14 - 'The Grove' Delivers A Jaw-Dropper
Major spoilers if you haven't seen tonight's episode of The Walking Dead, "The Grove." After a couple of just-ok episodes, this series went all Steinbeck on us, in an episode that offered what may very well have been the most shocking moment of the series. Horrible, horrible things happened...
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episode 16 - New Slogan
Parks and Rec delivers another average episode that fizzles out after a strong start for a number of the night’s plotlines. Pawnee is launching a new website, dancing, ping-pong playing panda and all, and one of the first initiatives to launch with the site is a new slogan for the city.
