A Briefcase Full of Humilation (And Cash)
In week three, Ethan's wife and kid find themselves sucked into Wayward Pines, but Ethan doesn't bother to tell them anything that might keep them from getting killed. Shockingly, that plan backfires on him. Before it's all over, someone is dead and a perfectly good escape attempt is ruined.
The Bachelorette fakes gay romance because, like, two dudes in love? How ridiculous would that be, right? It's not like that's a real thing or something.
“It’s great to see at least some aspects of the Superman mythos onscreen not weighted down by angst or failed attempts at achieving Christopher Nolan and/or Frank Miller levels of grimness.”
On Week 2 of The Bachelorette, the competition turns violent. Several of the guys come to blows over Kaitlyn until one sends another to the hospital. Then, the men try their hand at standup comedy. We'll let you decide which is worse.
Sex And the City 2 pretty much killed the franchise dead, and Carrie Bradshaw was condemned to the Fourth Circle of Hell, i.e., high school, for all eternity. Okay, it was just two seasons, but it felt like an eternity. Oh, who am I kidding--I LOVED IT.
Episode Six is waaaaaaay too late for a network show to finally get good, but Allegiance does just that, pretty much immediately after NBC cancelled it. Fortunately, the whole thing is now available on Hulu. Should you watch it? Yes... and here's why.
This week, Game of Thrones featured many of the good citizens of Westeros attempting to obtain pardons for their sins (and the sins of others) with highly variable rates of success, ranging from Jorah's violent but hopeless attempt to win back Dany to Gilly's much appreciated thank you roll in the hay with Sam.
In the second episode of Wayward Pines, Ethan and Beverly fail to escape, but at least they get an awkward and inexplicable dinner invitation out of it. Also, you'll be totally shocked to learn the sheriff is a bad guy.
The new season of The Bachelorette kicks off with two women competing for the title and no shortage of preposterous douchebags vying for undying love or 15 minutes of fame, whichever comes first.
This week on Game of Thrones, the series’ war on weddings with poor Sansa Stark the latest victim. Also, Arya gets a promotion, Margaery gets a demotion, Bronn and Jamie play dress-up, and Tyrion and Jorah make some new friends with benefits, but, perhaps, not the kind of benefits they were hoping for.
It's the last Mad Men ever! Who will choose love? Who chooses work? Who chooses family? Who will suck so bad at love and family they have nothing left but work? Okay, yeah, that last one was always going to be Don. Get ready for life-changing decisions and tearful phone calls galore!
Welcome to Wayward Pines. It's got a two-word title and northwestern exposure like Twin Peaks, people are stuck in a mysterious place like Lost, and it has secret agents like The Prisoner. The only things missing are humor, originality, wit and irony. But it's an M. Night Shyamalan joint so what did you expect?
In the second to last ever Mad Men, Don turns into a drifter in a cheap mid-America motel room, Betty is strongest at her weakest, and Pete just might get everything he's every wanted and more.
We're one episode away from the season finale, and Flash tries to clear all his supervillain prisoners out of town before Harribard's big attack. It's a dumb plan that goes poorly. But at least we get a huge battle scene out of it.
Season finale time! Team Arrow fights to save Starling City from complete destruction, and before it's all over, there's a new Ra's al Ghul in charge of the League of Assassins. Plus, Oliver ends up happy... but how long can that last?
In the episode before the season finale, Oliver kills all his friends. Or so we're supposed to believe. But everything wraps up with a beautiful wedding, so it's a happy Jane Austen-esque ending, right?
This week on Game of Thrones, Dany feeds her dragon kids a gourmet lunch. Greyworm lives to be ball-less another day. Jon Snow grows a pair. Sansa comes to terms with just how badly her life sucks. Tyrion grudgingly acknowledges the perks of being held hostage.
It's the second to last episode of the season! While hunting for Eddie, who's been kidnapped by Harrison, Joe manages to get himself kidnapped, not by Harrison but by a 2,000-lbs. psychic gorilla.
“It would appear Mirror Universe episodes really need at least a couple of the regular universe characters to cross over, to counterbalance all the cartoonish evil on display.”
