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.
Somebody is now handless, a few people are now lifeless, and a batshit crazy war vet Neil Patrick Harris has arrived to add even more WTF to the show.
Instead of seeing Dandy wax proudly and bare-assedly about being a god among men, we got to witness the unspeakably horrendous life story of Pepper the Pinhead. Cue the violin submersing itself in termites.
Ascension came to a close tonight with Night Three. Is there enough fuel to keep this ship going into another season, or should the crew turn around and head back to Earth? Read on, and see for yourself.
Ascension was back with Night Two of its three night voyage towards truth and social disarray. Did it manage to best last night's interesting but mixed premiere? Read on to find out.
Ascension took off on its three night voyage tonight! Can it escape the orbit of its influences, or will it splashdown into a pool of cliches? Find out after the jump.
How could Arrow possible follow last week's epic crossover event? Well, bringing in one of Batman's biggest-bads doesn't hurt, especially since the superhero series has been teasing the villain for over a season. And Ra's al Ghul finally showed more than just his face for "The Climb," a family-oriented midseason finale fans won't soon forget. Happy Holidays!
There’s always a point in American Horror Story when it becomes so very clear that this series is partly written via several games of MASH, and I don’t know how anyone can return to any form after the inexcusable narrative shaming that was “Tupperware Party Massacre,” which may damn well be the worst episode American Horror Story has ever expelled from its mother-loins.
Tonight is the first Tuesday night of the rest of my life without any new Sons of Anarchy episodes coming next week or next year. For all the deaths that Kurt Sutter has delivered to fans, the death of the show itself is the one that hurts the most.
Supernatural’s midseason finale was a microcosm of Season 10 to this point. The episode started slow and gradually built to a simmering conclusion. No big shocks or “Apocalypse take 3” this time. Just a smaller scale, more intimate storyline that reunited Castiel with the Winchesters and set the stage for what’s to come with Dean’s slow descent into madness.
Barely any characters in American Horror Story live long enough to make it to the end, and “Blood Bath” was particularly exemplary of that. Featuring some of the best lines of the season and a few uncomfortable surprises, tonight’s episode was nonetheless a bit of a wash, with the soap opera approach jacked up to 11.
“Hibbing 911” was a standard episode of Supernatural that benefited from a strong female dynamic not often seen on the show. Sheriffs Jody Mills and Donna Hanscum returned this hour to help take down a pack of hippie vampires and more!
