It's a stark contrast to go from the joyful, humorous and celebratory first hour of Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary special to what may have been the most dismal Walking Dead episode to date.
After a few weeks in recovery, the Arrow is back! And he certainly looked the part at the end of the "Uprising" when he let the citizens and, more importantly, criminals of his city know the green-hooded hero had returned. Returned, recuperated and not happy that the “Canaries” got in the game while he was on the sidelines.
What elevated tonight’s episode of Supernatural was its commitment to social commentary, something this show has done very well over the years, and the targets in “Halt and Catch Fire” were multiple – college students, Greek life, and, most noticeably, tech-obsessed youth.
"It went the way it had to, it went the way it was going to. Just like this." Really, The Walking Dead? Really. Andrew Lincoln said that the first two episodes of the second half of Season 5 would be brutal, and he clearly wasn't kidding.
This week, while light on references to the DCU, finally marked the end of the Arrow resurrection mini-arc. Since the superhero series' return, one adversary has been doing a lot of damage in Oliver's absence with Vinnie Jones' villain running the law out of the Glades. It's going to take an old-fashioned “Uprising” to root out this miniboss.
The Mentalist had a major shakeup during tonight's episode. The following article features plenty of spoilers, so please stop reading if you haven’t caught the episode, yet. Are you still with us? Good, let’s talk about tonight’s shocking series of events.
"About a Boy" dealt with the season’s mythology only briefly but had enough winning ingredients to rise above the problems that plague over throwaway episodes. You had a new twist on a familiar story and plenty of humor sprinkled throughout.
Parenthood is the kind of series that could've simply kept going. With an emphasis on the challenges and triumphs that come with being a part of a family, the story was never really set up for any kind of definitive ending.
Seriously, there are some major spoilers in this article if you haven’t caught last night’s episode of Criminal Minds. If you don’t want to be spoiled on who was killed off during the episode, please hightail it away from this page right now.
After the fall at the end of ”The Climb,” Team Arrow was forced to try and save the city last week without the eponymous hero and there were more than a few missteps. Like letting the big-bad get away, for one. Good news though, Oliver Queen isn’t dead. What a shock! Right? Right?!
When Claire was taken off the board last week, Supernatural suddenly had an opening for its token female character. The show wasted little time in filling that void as Charlie returned from Oz in more ways than one. Or, should I say, more bodies than one.
It’s been too long since the last episode of Arrow but I’m pretty sure no one forgot what happened at the end of "The Climb." The superhero series’ mid-season finale ended on quite the cliffhanger with Oliver losing his shirtless showdown with one of the deadliest villains in DCU. And the wait for his return has been excruciating. It’s time to bring our hero back from the dead.
With only a few minor tweaks, the American Horror Story: Freak Show finale “Curtain Call” would serve as a perfect reunion special for this season, had it ended at Episode 12 for some reason. Gone are the conversations between Neil Patrick Harris and his sex-watching ventriloquist dummy, and in are the time-jumps, wrap-ups and happily-ever-afters.
On the same night that President Obama delivered the State of the Union, Supernatural fans got a reassuring update on the status of Season 10 during “The Hunter Games.” Sam and Dean returned in a tight hour of storytelling that utilized the show’s best characters in refreshing ways.
In its four years, American Horror Story has gone through some cyclical storytelling, hitting on the same beats time and again, sometimes intentionally and sometimes probably less so. But Danny Huston is back! And this episode had a scene that disturbed me more than any other this season.
