It’s time to say good-bye to a character none of us really knew, or cared about, so we can make way for more new NATS with backstories that should have kept them out of the FBI.
“Men’s-only locker room, casual misogyny when it comes to humor, assumptions that women are only interested in material goods. Glad to see the future hasn’t changed, 1969.”
This week, Snow White remembers how awesome it was to make out with Hercules, and it causes her to decide she doesn’t want to be that old dishrag, Mary Margaret, anymore. Also, three cast members get head, but not in the fun way you are probably imagining . . .
As the police investigate the Hapstell case further, the ANTLs take turns blaming Annalise for all of their problems. There’s drinking, crying, secrets revealed, random hook ups–yep, just another typical HTGAWM episode.
“No matter what Yu-Gi-Oh tries to push, believing in yourself isn’t enough. Beg pardon, Inuyasha, but you can’t just swing Tessaiga around like a drunken baseball player. Hey, Naruto, sometimes you have to do more than say ‘believe it’ and punch.”
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.
This non-comedy gets a suitable non-ending as all the plot threads we’ve been following for six months devolve into a terrible musical number and the strangest closing credits in history.
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.
Jupiter finally meets the main villain of the film, and it feels like a complete afterthought. But on the plus side, somebody in this movie will win an “award” for his acting.
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.
“Roger Ebert would often espouse the notion that there are no good movies featuring hot air balloons. I’d like to think he was watching Skidoo at the time he formulated this theory.”
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.
“With the abrupt ending of the first film, most had hoped the second entry would provide all the answers we never got. Instead, the previous film now makes even less sense.”
