'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: [SPOILER] 'A' Turns Up The Heat

1/14/2015 8:50am EST
Episode 15
As we learned with the last episode, Aria was freaking out and this episode started off with just that. The girls were back to school and doing what they should be doing, talking about college. Okay, mostly talking about "A," but also being normal and talking about their future. I mean, how long have they been applying to their prospective schools? I'd say it feels like years. And finally, each one is receiving their acceptance letters. Everyone except Aria.

In episode 14, Aria started receiving her rejection letters. By now, she has been rejected to all of her potential schools. Freaking ...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5 Winter Premiere Recap [SPOILER]: Ali Goes To Jail

Pretty little liars
The Liars are back, and they are most certainly as naive as they were before. You'd think things would be different this time around. With all the hints show producer Marlene King has been dropping, can we at least get the Liars to a point where they aren't so oblivious to "A" and his/her tactics?

The episode started off slower than expected. Actually, the entire episode was slow. I guess with all the hype surrounding Mona's death and funeral, we were mislead to expect more. But I give props because there were a few laughs to keep me awake.

The timeline continues at a few months post-Mona...

Christmas may be over, but the holidays sure aren't. Bringing you some joy to your post-Christmas blues, here's a single you should surely add to your holiday playlist.

Singer-songwriter Tiffany Houghton released her debut Christmas tune this month, and it is sure to make you feel the holiday feels. "I don't think it's a secret that I'm a Christmas music junkie so this has kind of been on the bucket list since I was a child. It's a little different actually, and has this retro almost Motown feel to parts of it, but is also super fresh and fun," Houghton says. "Blame It On Snow" is everythi...

It's quite the weekend for your local box offices. With a genre to accommodate each member of a family, the film options are quite spectacular.

Ryan Cabrera
Singer-songwriter, Ryan Cabrera is making a comeback with a new single and upcoming EP. It’s been almost 7 years since he’s released an album. That's 7 years of his fans listening to his mega hits "On The Way Down" and "True," over and over again. “For me, even before my first record, I was playing non-stop shows. I love being on the stage. I can't not do it. I can't take six months off because I love the live aspect of playing and the interaction with fans. The last record I put out was in 2008, since then I probably did over 200 shows a year. So, continuing to write a record and recording...

Elijah Wood Says Goodbye To 'Wilfred' - Saves Bear And Gatorade
At four seasons strong, "Wilfred" has had quite a successful run. Elijah Wood has been playing Ryan, a guy who visions a dog as a man. How is that even possible? Who really knows. Given an answer to this bizarre behavior or not, the part psychological and part comedic appeal is what has drawn a unique audience to tune in since its premiere. But, there is an end to most every show and "Wilfred" is at its doom.

Elijah Wood recently took some time out of his busy schedule to chat all things "Wilfred" and Ryan. "Wilfred" is currently airing Wednesdays on FXX at 10 P.M., and the series finale i...

Abigail Spencer and Mark Johnson Discuss Amantha For 'Rectify' S
Sundance TV’s “Rectify” returns for season 2 today (June 19) after a little over a year. If the season 2 promos are any indication to the forthcoming season, then the fans are in for a dramatic 10 episode run.

If you are new to the show, don’t fret because we can catch you up. And no, we won’t be giving away any spoilers. Just that season 1 centers around Daniel Holden (Aden Young), and the people he interacts with.

The witching hour is upon us as "Witches of East End" returns next month. The show’s producers, as well as Rachel Boston who plays Ingrid, sat down with Starpulse at the 2014 ATX Television Festival. What they revealed on the upcoming season has us feeling as though the show will be better than ever. “We take advantage of all things the fans love about the show. Flashbacks, mythology, life and death stakes and an ending that launches you directly into season three. The way we end is the most unexpected season ender of any show I’ve ever heard of,” writer and producer Richard Hatem says. But...

Orange is The New Black: Uzo Aduba, Danielle Brooks And Lea DeLa
By now, everyone and their mother have heard of the show “Orange is the New Black.” If you are a diehard fan, you must have seen some, if not all, of season 2’s stream on Netflix. What made last Friday such a grand day for OITNB was not only the premiere of season 2 but also their screening and panel at the 2014 ATX Television Festival.

After the panel, Starpulse had the opportunity to sit down with Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes), Danielle Brooks (Taystee) and Lea DeLaria (Big Boo) for an intimate OITNB discussion. Of course, we made it our goal to get to know the rad chicks firsthand. But before ...
