'Hannibal': Which Major Character Did Hannibal Kill This Week?

July 3rd, 2015 6:31am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Contorno": A side dish, typically some kind of vegetable and typically served alongside the secondo (that is, the meat dish). Can be served hot or cold, raw or cooked, but never on the same plate as the meat.

Odd choice of title, isn't it? In much the same way that "Secondo" the episode didn't quite feel like the TV equivalent of hearty steak, "Contorno" is rich and filling and, appropriately, rare to the point of bloody. So much more than a little dish of broccolini, don't you think?

Ok, I'll put the food metaphors away for a while. But seriously- what a knockout hour of TV. Hannibal's ...

'Big Brother' 17: Insanity Of The First Live Feed Week

July 2nd, 2015 8:51am EDT
Big Brother Review: Week One Veto, Ridiculous Fights, And Two Bi
The difference between the Big Brother live feeds and episodes are truly astounding. It’s one of the things that makes Big Brother stand out among the competitive reality show.

But the trouble is that the first week of episodes can’t even begin to illustrate ...
