Sons of Anarchy's A Mother's Work: The Series' Best Season Finale To Date
No one watches Sons of Anarchy for the conversations; they watch it to see the members of SAMCRO get into hectic situations where the endgame is never clear. Tonight’s “A Mother’s Work” managed to cram both meaningful and tense talks and devastating action into its nearly two-hour timeframe, with more than enough tense dialogue and blood to last another season. I haven’t been able to close my mouth properly since it ended
Agents Of SHIELD Episode 10 Watch: The Bridge
Agents of SHIELD is really starting to hit its stride. After setting up the Centipede plot earlier in the series, the show took a step away from that for a bit and focused on some stand-alone episodes, which have given us time to get to know the characters. The series is on better footing now, and the winter finale seems like the right time to go back to the overall arc, which could prove to be the driving force of the second half of the first season.
The Sing-Off Highlights: Fun. Medley, What Makes You Beautiful And More
The Sing-Off is back! It only took a few notes from the start of the opening number — a Fun. medley performed by all of the competing a cappella groups — to remind me why I love this series. There’s nothing quite like the sound of great voices coming together for a good song. Unaccompanied by any other instruments, a cappella really has a way of making an overplayed song sound brand new.
Homeland Season 3, Episode 11 Watch: Never Trust A Crystal Ashtray
With the stakes reflected literally and figuratively in the mirror (and just like that: baby’s got bump), Carrie and Brody’s motivations were murky going into Homeland's penultimate episode. What’s Carrie’s hang-up about her impending Brody-baby? Would our ginger-terrorist-that-could kill General Akbari? Were both willing to go the distance for one another? Would anybody actually just do what he or she was told for once? And what, good lord, would be Saul’s motivation this week?
Glee Watch Season 5, Episode 8: Previously Unaired Christmas
Happy Holidays, Gleeks! In last night's "previously unaired Christmas episode," we were treated to Becky sexually harassing others, an intense Christmas tree contest, a hot klepto Santa, and Unique's version of a '70s Diana Ross nativity scene. Let's recap, shall we?
Scandal Season 3, Episode 9 Watch: YOLO
Scandal has proven to be the series that most often leaves me shouting expletives at my television set, alarming my husband, who sits in the other room more amused by my reaction than he is interested in the explanation for it. But you get it. You watched. And if you didn’t, well, read on at your own risk because we’re about to get detailed in discussing “YOLO.”
Arrow DCU Tie-Ins And Easter Eggs: Season 2, Episode 8 - The Scientist PLUS A Look At The Mid-Season Finale
After putting Count Vertigo down for good in "State v. Queen," Arrow took a week off to prepare for the arrival of another, probably even more popular, DC superhero. And even though Barry Allen hasn't become the Flash just yet, his arrival still marked the first time that superpowers appeared on The CW series. How did the special abilities fit into the gritty, realistic Starling City that the comic book inspired show has created? Surprisingly well, actually.
American Horror Story: Coven Watch - Drink Every Time Someone Says...
It was a hard Thanksgiving for American Horror Story fans, as the series took a week off instead of showing us what kind of messed up voodoo spells Marie Laveau is capable of using only a stuffed turkey and canned yams. And heads up: tonight’s “The Sacred Taking” was treading as much water as possible without actually getting wet until the final shot of the episode, which was wickedly glorious and horrifying all at once. Kathy Bates further proves she’s ahead of the acting game
Sons Of Anarchy's You Are My Sunshine: Jax Is Either Crazy, Stupid Or Genius, And It Isn't Genius
All I can say about tonight’s episode of Sons of Anarchy is, “Wow” with a capital W, with Jax hiding behind it, ready to come out and put a couple of bullets in whatever happens to be in his way. Obviously I have more to say about it; otherwise this would be a pretty short story, unlike S.O.A., which has really started to play its cards properly in reminding people that this is a long story with an endgame in sight. What’s the best way to avoid getting antbites? You kill all the ants.
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 9 - Holy Terror
It takes a special kind of show to genuinely shock its audience after nine seasons. Supernatural proved it was that kind of show with its midseason finale “Holy Terror” and a death that I doubt anyone saw coming. I had a hunch as to whose name was on Metatron’s card but I thought Dean would come to the rescue like he always does. It just wasn’t meant to be this time. Dean arrived too late and Kevin paid the price as Gadreel turned out his lights.
How I Met Your Mother's 'Rehearsal Dinner' Delivers A Canadian Twist
The clip reveals the twist during last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, when Robin had reached the end of her rope and Barney admitted that sometimes he was going to have to lie to her. Or rather, that he would need to bamboozle her every once in a while. Robin’s Canadian-ness has been the source of many a joke on How I Met Your Mother...
The Walking Dead Season 4 Mid-Season Finale Watch: Too Far Gone
Well, if it was action people were looking for from tonight’s mid-season finale of The Walking Dead, they certainly got it. Spoilers if you haven’t seen tonight’s episode (“Too Far Gone”)! Because we’re about to get specific on all the mayhem, the carnage and the casualties that played out in a fast hour that would close out the first half of the fourth season, and leave us hanging in an interesting place when the clock ran out.
Homeland Season 3, Episode 10 Watch: Reading Way Too Much Into Word Choice
Sunday night’s episode of ‘Homeland,’ the ominously-titled “Good Night” was another instance of the Showtime program leaving us with more questions than answers. And, frankly, we’re starting to think that they might just be playing us. After the credits rolled we couldn’t help but wonder: is Brody going to survive? Is this all a smokescreen of an entirely different color? We’ve decided to suss out our suspicions the only way we know how: by over-thinking word choice to death.
Glee Watch Season 5, Episode 7: Puppet Master
In last night's episode, a gas leak in the McKinley choir room resulted in a variety of bizarre hallucinations: puppets, Miss Jackson dance-off, and Sue wearing a non-track suit dress. Wait that last part turned out to be true...
Supernatural Watch: Season 9, Episode 8 - Rock And A Hard Place
Supernatural rebounded this week with a funny episode that featured the return of a fan favorite: Sheriff Jodie Mills. With so few strong female allies left for Sam and Dean, I was relieved that Jodie survived the episode in spite of being chained to a slaughtering table. The villain’s identity was no shocker but the twist that she was the Roman goddess Vesta and not a dragon was fun. This show has been hit-or-miss when it dips into Greek and Roman mythology.
