'The Walking Dead' Review: 5 Badass Moments From 'Remember'
Remember when Rick’s best friend and most trusted ally ended up being his worst enemy? Remember when the group found a safe location in the prison that they thought could sustain them with that puny garden and fenced walls? Remember when a charismatic one-eyed leader promised to take care of his people? Remember when Terminus was going to be the savior community? All of those things may have happened before, but that doesn’t mean they can’t happen again. Is it even possible for our group of survivors to ever feel safe again?

“Remember” explores that idea of acclimating to a society again a...

'Girls' Recap: Hannah Horvath And The Double Date From Hell
Hannah, Hannah, Hannah. A hot guy asks you out and what do you do? You bring him to your ex-boyfriend's current girlfriend's art show. No, really. For those of you who didn't watch the episode, that's exactly what Hannah did. This handsome, funny, sweet dude asks her out in the teacher's lounge...

Oh, wait. If you'll recall, last week Hannah decided to be a teacher because writing wasn't working out. "Those who can't do, teach." That's what Jessa said in response. Jessa is the worst, but that pretty much sums up this storyline.

Moving right along. Fran asks her out, and she actually radia...

'Shameless' Review: 5 Best Moments from 'Tell Me You F***ing Need Me'

March 2nd, 2015 8:28am EST
'Shameless' Recap: 5 Best Moments from 'Tell Me You F***ing Need
In last night's Shameless, everybody is showing a little bit of desperation. Lip is running from unhelpful office to office on his college campus to uncover the mystery of why his class schedule isn’t showing up. Debbie is asking her short list of guy-experts on how to get her glib boxing buddy to stop placing her in the mythical friendzone. Even pathetic little Chuckie is desperate not to have his slacks and button up ruined by a bully or bad stomach at his first day of school. As the episode’s title suggestions, they’re each frantic for each other’s help. It’s a common theme for Shameless...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Love, 'Brookyln' Style

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Love, 'Brookyln' Style
"Boyle-Linetti Wedding" is exactlway what its title promises: a wedding episode. Which could be deadly for a show like "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," because weddings are slippery slopes.

Take "The Office"- a workplace satire that started off as dry and biting as they come, and ended its run with multiple wedding episodes (and at least as many baby episodes) under its belt.

Can "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" navigate this treacherous ground? Can it make a wedding episode without diving headfirst into sitcommy emotions forever? Can it even have a wedding that tugs the appropriate heartstrings while staying e...

'Bob's Burgers' Recap: Action, Adventure, Love, Drama, and Scott Bakula

March 2nd, 2015 8:11am EST
Bob's Burgers
Anthology episodes make for a tried-and-true animated show formula, but there is often something vaguely unsettling about them. With minimal setup required, they have a feeling of being untethered in time. That is not necessarily a problem in animation, where characters do not really age. These episodes could exist at many possible dates, and thanks to lack of serialization, that temporal ambiguity is acceptable. “Bob’s Burgers,” indeed, does not have much serialization, but it does have a lot of continuity, which an anthology can draw upon, often in warped fashion.

This is not to say ...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Dark Money' - Horrible Bosses

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Dark Money' - Horrible Bosses
The Good Wife is back, returning from its midseason break with another of its well-established recurring characters, a well-known special guest star, and, of course, more campaign drama. "Dark Money" is just one ring shy of a circus and underneath that, a slow start to the second half of the season.

The eccentric Colin Sweeney believes that a television program has based a character on him, using the "ripped from the headlines" phrase famously coined by Law & Order - hilariously, Dylan Baker plays both parts - and has enlisted Florrick, Agos and Lockhart to file suit on his behalf.

It's D...

Mary Tolbert
It ain’t over ‘til they bring out the big guns – literally. The Crawley clan heads to a week long shooting party hosted by the in-laws of Lady Rose (Lily James) at a Northumberland castle. Yes, Lord and Lady Sinderby (James Faulkner and Penny Downie) are putting shotguns in the hands of people they don’t like (and the feeling is mutual.) As Isobel Crawley (Penelope Wilton) says to Violet, Dowager Countess Of Grantham (Maggie Smith), “Makes you wonder what they’ll be shooting at by the end of it.”

Before everyone leaves to go shoot innocent birds out of the sky for sport, Lady Mary Crawley ...

Dakota Johnson Hosts SNL With Musical Guest Alabama Shakes -- Watch All The Highlights!

March 1st, 2015 4:00am EST
Saturday Night Live
"SNL" returned to its regularly scheduled time slot after its 40th anniversary and … this episode didn't feel like the comedown show after a big special so much as it felt like the type of episode that follow the ones that preceded it.

Fresh off the record-breaking box-office of "Fifty Shades of Grey," Dakota Johnson stopped by to host for the first time, on a series that is still strongly favoring original material, and at its best when that material gets weird (which usually happens with the pre-recorded shorts).

Johnson brought a surprising and surprisingly effective mellow charm that ...

Kelly Osbourne Quits 'Fashion Police' Days After Zendaya Hair In
Fed up with behind-the-scenes issues, Kelly Osbourne has quit her job on "Fashion Police." The action comes just days after her fellow co-host Giuliana Rancic made a questionable comment about Zendaya's dreadlocked look at the Academy Awards.

Osbourne threatened to quit unless her co-star apologized for stating the Zendaya smelled like "patchouli oil or weed." According to TMZ.com, Osbourne and Rancic had issues with one another even before the Oscars.

Osbourne was reportedly also unhappy with the way the show was being produced since the death of Joan Rivers. In turn, producers were upse...

Game Of Thrones Season 5 poster
HBO has released the key art for season five of "Game Of Thrones," and fans are wondering what it means.

The image features Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) looking from the bow of a ship with a fierce looking Drogon flying above him. The dragon is part of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) army, so perhaps she is closer to making her move to claim the iron throne?

In the second clip, Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) t...
