'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Jake Goes Postal

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Jake Goes Postal
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine's" been going crazy with the guest stars, hasn't it? Kyra Sedgwick. Eva Longoria. Stephen Root and Sandra Bernhard. Now, add Ed Helms to this prestigious list of semi-important "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" players.

In "USPIS," Helms is Jack Danger, a big shot federal agent who's actually the exact opposite of all the things "big shot" and "federal agent" imply.

Danger (disappointment #1- it's pronounced "Donger") is a smarmy pencil-pusher who believes, in his heart of hearts, that he's the action hero his job title implies. Also, that the United States Postal Inspection Servic...

'The Walking Dead': 10 Badass Moments From 'Crossed'

November 24th, 2014 9:40am EST
The Walking Dead
“Crossed” proves that episodes that feature all of the characters are stronger than the episodes featuring one group at a time. Last week’s jaunt with Carol and Daryl was great, but we also had to endure Beth and Abraham’s episodes in order to get to it. These standalone episodes probably have more to do with filming schedules than creative opportunities, but they’re to the detriment of the show. In “Crossed” there was plenty of time for each of the groups: Rick’s group, those left at the church, Abraham’s dawdlers, and the hospital crew. Most of the characters got a moment to shine, even o...

Can Sting Save The Sinking 'The Last Ship'?
Sting will replace lead singer/actor Jimmy Nail in the Broadway show "The Last Ship." The British rocker's production opened on Oct. 26, and low ticket sales have prompted the singer to join the cast.

Sting will perform in eight shows a week from Dec. 9 until Jan. 10.

He told the New York Times: "I've been working on this show for five years and been at every rehearsal, every performance, so it's not like I've flown in from Planet Rock Star to save the day... (I would bare my butt) in Macy's if it will help our show... I didn't assume it would be cake coming to Broadway with an original ...

'Homeland's' Latest Is Very Intense

November 24th, 2014 8:35am EST
'Homeland' Recap Season 4 Episode 9: Latest Episode Is Beyond In
Previously - Everyone had a heart attack and died because this show is too intense.

You know how the ABC marketing team promos Scandal’s winter finale as this big deal where pulses will be pounded and none of us will ever be the same? Well, I’ve pulled this chair out for them so they can have a seat. They are the generic brand of suspenseful TV drama when compared to Homeland. I’m probably more into this show right now than my marriage (To the other Mr. Harvey: I kid, I kid!) because this “Brody who?” season 4 is killing it. Last night’s “winter finale” had me literally BELLOWING at the TV...

‘SNL’ Recap: Cameron Diaz/Mark Ronson And Bruno Mars

November 24th, 2014 8:20am EST
'Saturday Night Live' Season 40, Episode 7 Review: Cameron Diaz/
When people look back through the annals of “SNL,” this episode may go down as the one when the Season 40 cast fully discovered its confidence. But since episodes are usually cataloged by the guests, this one might be hard to identify, because the guests did not do anything spectacular. Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars came in and performed a couple of songs, while host Cameron Diaz did not have any showcase performances. She gamely slotted in to whatever role she was needed in, but this episode was about the likes of Leslie Jones, Kyle Mooney, Aidy Bryant, and Beck Bennett asserting themselve...
