'Strike Back' Flashback: Season 1, Episode 5

May 29th, 2015 12:09pm EDT
'Strike Back' Flashback: The Worst Kind Of Family Business, Part
In "Cinemax Season 1, Episode 5," the Strike Back boys head to Darfur and collide with a very bad man named Gerald Crawford. We know he's bad, because he's portrayed by Iain Glen, whose best known roles include menacing Richard Armitage in Spooks and being the villain in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Some people are just very good at playing bad.

Crawford's daughter, Dr. Clare Somersby (Laura Haddock, Guardians of the Galaxy and Da Vinci's Demons), is not so evil. She's working at a primary care clinic, which is the TV kiss of death (remember the Transporter: The Series episode "Beacon of Hope"...

Did You Find The 'Aquarius' Premiere Boring?

May 29th, 2015 9:45am EDT
'Aquarius' Premiere Recap: Mulder And Manson Make For A Surprisi
This is a recap, not a review. But when has that ever stopped me from providing you, my one reader (hi, Ma!), with my opinion? Aquarius is kind of a bore. Yes, it's nice to see David Duchovny (hi, Fox Mulder!) back on network TV. The production values are high. The cinematography is suitably dingy for a cop show. The music budget must be astronomical because man, did they obtain every 60s song you can imagine. A dude even gets slashed by a razor to "Daydream Believer!" But the goings-on are kind of a bore. In a way, the Manson component hinders the show. They're fusing historical fact with ...

Rutledge And George's Next Patient, A 1972 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ-40.

May 29th, 2015 9:08am EDT
'Lost In Transmission' Recap: 'Off Road Rust Bucket' - Anything
In the fourth episode of Lost in Transmission, Rutledge Wood and George Flanigen's next patient is a 1972 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ-40. But in "Off Road Rust Bucket," our boys are doing anything but cruising.

Amy is hoping that they can get the FJ-40 back in shape, so she can take her kids riding in it like her father did with her. But it hasn't run in some 20 years, and as the episode title indicates, it's got plenty of rust inside and out. "Something was living in this at some point," Rutledge comments as they survey the carcass. Ever the optimist, he still thinks they can do the job for $2...

'Wayward Pines' - Our Town, Our Law

May 29th, 2015 8:45am EDT
'Wayward Pines' Recap: Season 1 Episode 3 'Our Town, Our Law'
The last Wayward Pines' episode proved that things can get a whole lot worse than you think, and really quickly.

Beverly broke a major rule on last week's Wayward Pines, and we saw the severity of going against the town's rules. Now Ethan Burke must fight his way out of town or accept these rules. In last night's episode, Ethan continued his plan to leave Wayward Pines, but he discovered that the town may answer to an even more dangerous authority than Pope.

This episode of Wayward Pines opened up right after Beverly's execution. Sheriff Pope then makes everyone in town recite the rules...

Sawyer Fredericks After 'The Voice':  What's Next For The Winner
Congratulations, you've just won The Voice...now what? That's the question in front of teenage folk singing phenom Sawyer Fredericks, who took home the title for Team Pharrell last week and now has a whole (hopefully long) career in front of him.

Sawyer took time out of his increasingly busy schedule to chat with us last week about his reaction to winning and what we should expect to hear from him in the future. But firstly, has what just happened even sunk in yet?

"I don't think it fully has," he laughed. "I think once I have a little bit of downtime, it will."

Although his fellow final...

TLC To Spawn A Spinoff Series?

May 28th, 2015 11:09am EDT
Does TLC Have A Duggar Spinoff In The Works?
A spinoff series starring "19 Kids and Counting" sisters Jill Duggar and Jessa Duggar may become a reality in a way to keep the Duggar brand active.

In wake of the Josh Duggar molestation controversy, the network is rumored to be doing major damage control and one way to keep the wildly popular series on the table would be to focus on the Duggar girls.

Reportedly, TLC has been working behind-the-scenes to focus a series on Jill and Jessa Duggar's new roles as wives and mothers.

"The show had begun to focus more and more on the next generation of Duggars, anyway, mainly Jill and Jessa an...
