'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Doesn’t Need Heavy Romance

May 4th, 2015 10:49am EDT
'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: 'Det. Dave Majors' Should Have Been
We've mentioned it here before, but let's go ahead and say it again: according to the braintrust behind "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," a Jake/Amy relationship isn't going to be a huge thing.

Sexual tension developed naturally between the characters, so "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" pushed it a little further and created the current "will they, won't they" situation. Which is great. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" thrives on being wacky and hilarious and occasionally touching but mostly in a father-son, Jake and Holt sense.

We don't need heavy romance in our "Brooklyn Nine-Nine;" especially because Sgt. Terry is love ...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: 'AC/DC'

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: 'AC/DC' Destroys Jake's Body For The
It's been way too long since our last "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." "Sabotage" was six weeks ago! At least things are back to normal now.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine's" returning to some very familiar territory with "AC/DC." Jake, in pushing himself to be the greatest cop ever (a constant state of John McClane, really), pulls a daring rooftop car chase. Except for the car with an open sunroof, tripping up Jake and also crushing several of his bones.

But he'll still push on, despite the whole "crushed bones" thing.

Here's the part that feels so familiar. "AC/DC" sees Jake drive himself obsessively toward...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Car Sick' - Middle Fingers And
This week's installment of Impractical Jokers leaves us wondering how these guys are ever let into focus groups. Or supermarkets. Or lots of places, frankly.

Anyway, their shenanigans this week include struggling through survey answers that they don't want to give, and seeing how far they can shoot toilet paper in the produce department. Read on to find out what Q, Sal, Joe and Murr got up to in "Car Sick," and which one of them was the unlucky loser.

Challenge #1: Hocus Focus
It's the good old focus group schtick: one Joker is the moderator, and has given another Joker his embarrassing a...

Recap: 'Supernatural' Cranks Up The Suspense Meter

April 23rd, 2015 11:15am EDT
Supernatural
There are a few different ways to watch “Supernatural.” As the Scare Factor eased with each passing season, I began to watch it by candlelight instead of at my parents’ house with every light on a bowl of rock salt in my lap. This week’s episode cranked up the Suspense O’ Meter, making “The Werther Project” one of the most intense episodes of the season.

Grab your 5-pound bag of rock salt, and let’s dive in, shall we?

The catalyst of John Winchester and his sons’ foray into what would become the family business was the psychological demons left by his wife’s death by the hands of actua...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: Things Get Really Uncomfortable (Watch)

April 17th, 2015 9:05am EDT
'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Psuedo-Sumo' - Really Big Babie
In this week's episode of Impractical Jokers, things get really uncomfortable at the rental counter and the local mall. But that's child's play compared to what happens to tonight's big loser, who suffers a punishment that involves him in a diaper. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Challenge #1: Cheap Skates
In another "do and say what you're told" challenges, teams of two ruin the skate rental counter at Wollman Rink. Sal and Joe start acting like teenage girls, and that's before the challenge has even started. Then Sal has too much fun yelling at a customer to keep her hands up, and balks at...

In this exclusive clip from tonight's brand-new episode, Sal Vulcano and Joe Gatto are tasked with trying to get unsuspecting coffeehouse patrons to leave.

Also in tonight's episode entitled "Psuedo-Sumo," the guys work the rental counter at Wollman Rink (because ice skating apparently wasn't embarrassing enough for them), then cause an uproar at Palisades Mall when...

Recap: 'Supernatural' Gears Up For Finale

April 16th, 2015 10:55am EDT
Supernatural
There are a three surefire ways to tell that “Supernatural” is gearing up for an epically devastating season finale. First, Sam and Dean Winchester are hopeful, happy and/or make plans for the future. Second, the characters find their voices and reveal their truths. Finally, there seems to be a promising break in the season’s overarching affliction. “Book Of The Damned” checked each one of these boxes with an suspenseful, emotional installment that already has me mentally preparing myself for a gutting season finale.

Grab your sarong or speedo and let’s dive in, shall we?

Suzanne Cryer Livens Up HBO's 'Silicon Valley'
Move over, boys - HBO's Silicon Valley has a new woman in town. Suzanne Cryer portrays Laurie Bream, the new boss on the business comedy, and we connected with her last week to discuss becoming part of the series for its second season and how she's just as busy as her new alter ego.

"Definitely it is joining a party that's already in full swing," Suzanne said of coming aboard the show. "When I read the character description and the material we had for this character, it's very different from me but there are a lot of things that click for me, because she's highly organized and she leads wi...
