It’s the motherload of telenovela tropes! Babies being born, hostages being held, a long-lost brother revealed, dramatic heart to heart conversations about love and sex and…accusations of plagiarism? Jane the Virgin runs down every big telenovela trope as Petra finally gives birth.
Jimmy gets slammed at work. Mike gets slammed in front of a restaurant. Kim gets sent to a dungeon. And Chuck has a relapse. Not the best week for anyone.
Welcome back to Quantico — back to constant time shifts to keep us from noticing that for every two minutes of action there’s fifty minutes of nothing, but who cares when everyone is so pretty and there’s always a locker room and/or wrestling scene?
Once is back for its 100th episode, and all your favorite characters from seasons past have returned. Well, at least the ones that couldn’t manage to find a better job in the last five years. It’s the Underworld, baby. Sometimes the Road to Hell is paved with unemployment.
It’s the last episode ever of Downton Abbey! Will we go out on a note of death and disaster? Nope, it’s happy endings all around, even for the undeserving.
Wes continues to investigate his mother’s death, Annalise negotiates a plea deal, Laurel and Frank remain broken up, and the ANTLs keep their eye out for Creepy Philip. If everybody just talked about their problems, there would be a lot less unnecessary flashbacks and double crossing. But hey, it wouldn’t be “How To Get Away With Murder” now would it?
It’s new Supergirl vs. old Supergirl as Laura Vandervoort guest stars as an evil blue alien who is definitely not Mystique. Also, if you’re interested in not becoming a supervillain, stay the heck away from Winn; he’s a bit of a bad-luck charm.
Everyone on “Jane Virgin” is wrapped in their own little bubble. Jane is so in love with Michael that she can’t see Rafael is hurt. Xiomara can’t see Rogelio is still hoping she’ll change her mind about kids while Rogelio doesn’t notice that there is something strange about his new assistant. Time to burst those bubbles, “Jane” cast!
Jimmy is put in charge of outreach, and a miraculously recovered Chuck isn’t sure his little brother is up to the job.
This week, “How to Get Away with Murder” is renamed “How To Stop Someone From Getting Away with Blackmail”. The ANTLs gather to deal with Creepy Phillip’s blackmail video. Meanwhile, Wes and Laurel take a trip to Ohio and learn some troubling information. With the help of flashbacks, of course.
Supergirl gets a new rival at work, faces another bottom-tier Superman villain, and this show again proves it understands the Superman Family way better than the DC movies.
It’s the cliffhanger finale of The X-Files, and it looks like the world-saving may fall on Scully’s shoulders. How does she do it? With SCIENCE and a little help from Einstein and Miller.
This week on Better Call Saul, Mike and Jimmy both have surprise visitors at work, and Jimmy helps Mike with a problem.
Jane goes on a date with the hunky Professor Chavez, Xiomara contemplates freezing her eggs to make Rogelio happy, Michael makes one last play to catch Sin Rostro and Mutter. In telenovela land, you better use what you got if you want to gain everything. Or in Jane’s case, lose something very important.
Is Mary Crawley worse than Hitler? What about Lex Luthor? Or Dick Cheney? Maybe she’s not as bad as any of them, but she’s still probably the worst sister ever.
Do you hear the ANTLs sing, singing the songs of angry interns? Fed up with Annalise’s bossiness, the ANTLs quit in the middle of a Case of the Week. Wes avoids the fallout because he’s stuck in a psych ward. Yeah, you read that right. Also: more flashbacks on the Mysterious Backstory of Annalise and Wes.
The season premiere of Better Call Saul, picks up right where we left. Jimmy has a chance to be a real lawyer, but would he rather be a real grifter?
Babylon, the 5th episode of The New X-Files is never boring. Awkward, icky, incoherent? You bet. But never dull.
A fiery car crash, a break-up, a surprise proposal, it’s the penultimate Downton Abbey and everything is heating up, except for Mary Crawley’s heart.
Let’s break it down: Annalise was shot, the ANTLs need to make sure the police bought their phony crime scene, and Wes gets suspicious about his connection to Annalise. With everyone breaking down, how are these people going to get away with murder?
