Sherlock: A bumpy night

It’s fake-out on top of fake-out in the season and likely series finale of Sherlock, so fasten your seat belts, as Jim (Still Dead) Moriarty will say, and take a Valium if you have a fear of flying because we open with this nightmare flight scenario…

Sherlock: The Adventure of the Combover Monster

Babies are notorious show killers, so let’s hope we won’t be seeing much of her. Then again, if Americans have learned anything from Downton Abbey, it’s that British children are not meant to be seen or heard, except except maybe for an obligatory ten minute period every other week, between tea and supper.

Scream Queens: The Swamp Thing

Once again, the Green Meanie tries to attack poor me for no other reason than the fact that I happen to work at a hospital that was the site of some medical negligence in the ’80s. And that I deep fried Nurse Awful’s sister’s face or something.

The Exorcist: And now the time has come

Welcome to the series finale (looks like, maybe, unless there’s divine intervention or an email campaign) of The Exorcist – a television show that despite being very prettily filmed and classy, never grabbed a big enough audience. We might autopsy it later, but for now the recap.

Scream Queens: It's not easy being a Green Meanie

Nurse Awful (and I mean “awful”, not Hoffel) is making the Chanels and I work the creepy late shift at the hospital. And where is Zayday during all of this? Kidnapped by the serial killer of the season AGAIN. Seriously, that girl will do anything to get out of doing any real work around here.

The Exorcist: Dark Angela

We shouldn’t have to wait until the penultimate episode for the fun to begin, but sometimes a series has to find its groove. Chapter 9 aka 162 is the scariest, most action packed, enjoyable, and surprising episode of The Exorcist so far.

Scream Queens: Chanel is bad at sex

Welcome to Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens, a show that 75% of the cast is too good for. As you know, I am tired of recapping this show and am handing the reins over to the one person who loves this show: Chanel Oberlin herself. For this episode, Dean Cathy Munsch will also take over. The Agony Booth is not responsible for any of the mean and hurtful things they say. especially to each other. Take it away, ladies!

Once Upon a Time: I Dream of Genie

This week on Once, Emma gets “wished” into an alt-world, where her hair and makeup are better, but everything else about her is way worse. Also, Aladdin becomes everyone’s b*tch; the Evil Queen unleashes her inner reptile; and everyone who thought Belle’s kid was super creepy, and most likely The Worst, gets to say “I TOLD YOU SO!”

Jane the Virgin: Holy Mother of God

Previously on Jane the Virgin: Jane’s Crazy Cousin Catalina came into town and surprised her with an impromptu family reunion. Catalina is fun, cool, hip, and possibly evil since all long-lost relatives tend to be in telenovela land…

Once Upon a Time: Baby mama drama

This week on Once, Belle’s “baby” keeps haunting her dreams, while not so subtly hitting on her, and no one is supposed to think that’s weird. Aladdin becomes a Genie, and moves into a lamp, which I guess beats his prior job of living in a cave and being unemployed.

Scream Queens: Bloody Hell

Welcome to Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens, where all the good characters (see Chad, Denise Hemphill, and Tristan the Stalker) get killed off too soon. As you all know, I am tired of recapping this show and will be handing the reins to Chanel Oberline herself. Keep in mind, we at the Agony Booth are not responsible for any of the horrible things she says. Take it away, Chanel!

Jane the Virgin: Kissing cousins

Previously on Jane the Virgin: Jane reached out to Alba’s side of the family and now her crazy Catalina has showed up on her doorstep, ready for a family reunion? How do we know she’s crazy? Long-lost relatives usually are in telenovela land…

Supergirl: Waiting for Cyborg Superman

Well, there are lots of action plots with this week, with plenty of mano a mano fights (or extraterrestre a extraterrestre, as the case may be) and lots of Michael Bay-esque shots with the camera circling around combatants (and even just people sitting around having drinks)…
