Kelley Wentworth
Since Day One, Blood vs Water has been a tale of two tribes heading in opposite directions. Coyopa couldn’t win a challenge, and they weren’t getting along. Hunahpu was unbeaten and living like kings, but even they couldn’t live in peace. To get rid of the ‘snakes’ on his tribe, Drew threw an Immunity Challenge, and found himself voted out of the game.

After Tribal Council, the Hunahpu tribe were shocked but glad to have Drew out of the game. Jon, as Drew’s friend, worried that he’d be the next to go. Jeremy felt like the right move had been made, and that he was now in the tribe's best po...

'The Middle' Season 6, Episode 4 Review: Happy 20-Somethingth Anniversary

October 23rd, 2014 10:50am EDT
The Middle
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” These words of wisdom popularized by W.E. Hickson are a constant source of inspiration, or the complete opposite of inspiration, for the Heck family. “The Table” was an emblematic episode demonstrating how much everyone in this family believes that it is never worth trying but they ultimate make do with the beaten-down lot they have in a way that is really all about trying anyway. Except for Sue. Sue never hears the same message about giving up from the universe that her parents hear.

The funny thing about not trying when it comes to Fra...

'Arrow' Season 3 Episode 3 Recap: 10 Incredible Moments From 'Corto Maltese'

October 23rd, 2014 9:47am EDT
Arrow - The CW
Three episodes in and "Arrow" keeps throwing new stuff at us. It wasn't enough that the CW killed off one of our favorite superheroes, and threw another character into evil ninja-training mode. Not nearly enough.

So despite "Corto Maltese's" obvious storylines in Corto Maltese, we've got just as much stuff going on at home. Laurel and Felicity and Ray Palmer? All going through some major life changes.

But we'll detail those in the list below. Let's get to it already.

10. Retractable Tether Arrows!

Maybe not the biggest deal, but hey- that's why it's at the top of the list. And besides, ...

6 Powerful Scenes From Duke Porn Star Inspired 'Law & Order SVU' 'Porn Star Requiem' Episode

October 23rd, 2014 9:19am EDT
6 Powerful Scenes From Duke Porn Star Inspired 'Law & Order SVU'
"SVU’s" “Porn Stars Requiem” episode picks up where the writers left off: on a never-ending loop of ripped from the headlines story lines. Suddenly the vision of a newbie writer slaving over an original sex-based trauma tale to present to the exec producers comes to mind, only to find it in the trash alongside “Law & Order L.A.” But I digress; this week’s installment is inspired by Duke porn star Belle Knox, a staunch defender of using porn to pay her college tuition, and the recent spike in college sexual assaults. In SVU’s case the coed/porn star attends Hudson University and is the victi...

'American Horror Story Freak Show' Recap: Rundown On 'Edward Mor
Can anyone decipher the main plot of Freak Show? Is it Elsa Mars’ quest for fame and the horrors she’ll commit to get it? Is it about Dot and Bette skirting the law, joining a freak show, and fighting each other? Or maybe it’s about the tough life of Jimmy, who was born into a world he despises? Or is it about a crazy clown, his rich best friend, and the town they’re terrorizing? There are so many major plots that they all start to feel insignificant as the episodes go on, especially since there’s a new threat introduced in every episode. It could be the result of having too many beloved ac...

If you’re going to catch a murder case, make it a legendary one.

“Jo” (Alana De La Garza) needs “Henry” (Ioan Gruffudd) down at the stationhouse ASAP. A package has been delivered to the squad room and there’s a human heart inside.

'Manhattan Love Story' Season 1 Episode 4: 'It's Complicated'

'Manhattan Love Story' Season 1 Episode 4: 'It's Complicated'
“Dana” (Analeigh Tipton) and “Peter” (Jake McDorman) think it's time they had sex.

These two give me a migraine. It's four weeks in and I'm still not sure they even like each other. It seems as though they're still just curious. And they've never had a real, fun, I-can't-get-enough-of-this-person date. Each time they've been together, it's either turned into an argument or they've taken the opportunity to define their relationship: it isn't one. That's why they are still seeing other people.

Both Dana and Peter see something in one another that tells them they could get serious, but nei...
