Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episode 15 - The Wall
With Ron Swanson’s new son, John “Redacted” Swanson, comes one of the best episodes of the season for Parks & Rec. Continuing this week is the struggle between the citizens of Pawnee and Eagleton as the animosity between the two reaches a fever pitch.
Arrow Season 2, Episode 15 - The Promise: 5 DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs
It’s tough fighting crime and all but The CW’s superhero series sure seems to take a lot of time off. After the Olympics put Arrow on the sidelines for three weeks, the team returned for only two battles before scheduling another break. Facing Clock King in “Time of Death” was taxing but nothing compared to trying to make big bad, Slade Wilson break “The Promise” he made in the past. Maybe they do deserve a rest.
Glee Watch: Season 5, episode 10 Watch - Trio
Gleeks, Glee last night it was all about trios: friends, family and music. Schue and Emma were working on making their family a trio while our Glee kids (Lima and NYC) partnered up for some trio-tastic music.
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. 'TAHITI' Watch: Skye's The Limit
In a situation where your resources exist beyond the bounds of standard modern medicine, it's necessary to question how far you're willing to go to save a person's life. Because in the Marvelverse, as it relates to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the sky's not even really the limit when we consider their access to otherworldly resources.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 15 - Thinman
Can you believe it’s been six seasons since we last saw the Ghostfacers? When I looked that up on the always reliable Supernatural Wiki I was stunned. It feels like just a couple seasons ago when we last saw Harry and Ed messing things up for Sam and Dean with their ineptitude and internet-speak. The web’s foremost supernaturalists (at least in their minds) returned in “Thinman” after a girl was murdered inside her locked bedroom.
The Bachelor Watch: The Women Tell All, Only Not Really
Well: that was highly un-revelatory. Not that we totally thought it would be — more so that we just hoped it would. Because this season of The Bachelor has been trying at best. Maybe we were hoping some hard-hitting discussion, an acknowledgement from Juan Pablo that he’d been a dismissive egoist from time to time. Something. But this is The Bachelor so there’s literally no reason or precedent set to make us think that would happen. We all just want what we can’t have.
True Detective Watch: Episode 7 - After You've Gone
While his True Detective character continued his quest to find the 'Yellow King,' Matthew McConaughey was busy winning an Academy Award. And, given his performance up to and including “After You’ve Gone,” audiences should probably get used to his ‘alright, alright, alright’ acceptance speech cause it's bound to resurface in a few months when all the small-screen awards come ‘round. Time is a flat circle. And this was the beginning of the end.
Parks And Recreation Watch: Season 6, Episode 14 - Anniversaries
Parks & Rec weathers another mediocre episode that is saved by a Ben and Larry date and some classic Ron Swanson. Leslie gets caught up with trying to paint a pretty picture of the Pawnee/Eagleton merger six months in and the episode doesn't find anything for this storyline until the final moments.
Arrow Season 2, Episode 14 - Time Of Death: 5 DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs
It’s been three weeks since Arrow was last seen on The CW. Apparently, some global sporting event kept the network from airing any new episodes of the crime-fighter and his expanding crew cleaning the streets of Starling City. At least the last battle ‘Team Arrow’ fought was a big enough showdown to serve as a mid-mid-season finale and “Time of Death” continues to explore the complications of Sara's ‘resurrection’ while also introducing a well known DCU villain for Team Arrow to stop.
Glee Watch: Season 5, episode 9 - Frenemies
Gleeks, Glee has finally returned, making its mid-season spring debut with an all new night and an all new time. In last night’s episode, a familiar feud resurfaced (ahem Santana and Rachel). Meanwhile competition heated up between Artie and Tina who both had their eye on the valedictorian prize. And did we detect some sparks between Starchild and Kurt?
The Bachelor Watch: 63 Thoughts From Juan Pablo's Ridiculous Overnight Dates
I know this season of The Bachelor has been totally without controversy or shock (har har har), but on Tuesday night all of that changed. As it turned out, one of our fair maidens was not besotted by our fair prince of True Everlasting RealiLove. In what was an incredibly long-awaited epiphany moment from the Bachelorette-to-be (I mean: really), Andi realized what the rest of us have been gagging over this whole time.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 14 - Captives
Welcome back, Supernatural! After an extended “Then” segment that recapped the season’s major storylines, we were thrust back into the turbulent world of Season 9 with a story that started with flickering lights in the Men of Letters bunker. Based on Kevin’s presence in the recap you could guess what was coming next – our dearly departed prophet has taken up ghostly residence in the Men of Letters bunker.
The Bachelor Watch: Those Hometown Dates Weren't Nearly Dramatic Enough
Alright kids, please pardon my untoward language but: wasn’t that some bullshit we just saw on this week’s episode of The Bachelor? I mean, they set us up for crazy after last week. They were misleading like all get-out in those promotional materials! Where was the drama, where were all the absolute “oh hell to the no” commentary from the parents that we were promised? Where were the tears, the yelling, the game-changing?
True Detective Watch: Episode 6 - Haunted Houses, Plus A Preview For After You've Gone
Every episode since the premiere has had people talking True Detective but since revealing "The Secret Fate of All Life" last week the series has really dominated the cultural conversation. Whether it’s a look at the literary references or just wild fan theories, it’s impossible to go online without hearing whispers of 'The Yellow King.’ And the speculation is only going to intensify after visiting the "Haunted Houses."
The Walking Dead Season 4, Episode 11 Watch: Claimed
Spoilers from The Walking Dead's "Claimed" ahead! While "Inmates" gave us a look at what was going on with Maggie, Tyrese, Daryl and others, tonight's episode returned to the house where Rick, Carl and Michonne are staying, focusing mainly on those three while also following up on Glenn, Tara and their new friends.
