5 Reasons We're Excited For NBC's 'Constantine'
Ever since Hellblazer was first published by DC Comics over 25 years ago, John Constantine has been a pivotal character in the comic book genre. Created by Alan Moore and Stephen R.

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Maybe The Show Should Spend More Time On Why Then How

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Maybe The Show Should Spend
How To Get Away With Murder has an interesting problem to deal with: do we show the how or the why? It's chosen how nearly every time and it's not making the show stronger.

Look at the season-long murder mysteries: the murder of Lila Stanguard, the college student who was most definitely sleeping with future murder victim number two, Sam Keating. Usually on shows like these, the victims are really fleshed out to feel like real people and to gain our interest. Shows like Twin Peaks and Veronica Mars did this was aplomb, but How To Get Away With Murder is neither of these shows.

'Scandal' Recap: 5 Essential Questions From 'The Key'
“You are poison,” Abby tells Olivia after weeks of antagonizing each other. It’s not exactly a fair criticism, seeing as Abby is attempting to blame Olivia for Rosen’s own stupid actions. But it hits Olivia right to the core. Because as far as she knows, as far as she’s been told in “The Key,” that’s exactly what she is. She’s basically told that she’s a poison that infects the men in her life and sets them on the path to destruction.

It’s an assessment built on lies, but it points out a disturbing part of Scandal. How many terrible, seedy political actions have been committed out of love ...
