RonReaco Lee Scores With 'Survivor's Remorse'

RonReaco Lee Scores With 'Survivor's Remorse'
Survivor's Remorse has done a few good things. The Starz original series has reinvigorated the half-hour comedy. It's added something fresh to the tired formula of famous people dealing with fame. And it's provided a new spotlight to shine on RonReaco Lee, one of the overlooked talents on television.

For the last few years, RonReaco has without fanfare enlivened every TV project he's been a part of. As snitch and often unwilling accomplice Julius Grant on FOX's criminally (pun intended) short-lived comedy The Good Guys, he stole every scene that he was in.

Thankfully, Good Guys creator Ma...

'Manhattan Love Story' Season 1 Episode 4: 'It's Complicated'

'Manhattan Love Story' Season 1 Episode 4: 'It's Complicated'
“Dana” (Analeigh Tipton) and “Peter” (Jake McDorman) think it's time they had sex.

These two give me a migraine. It's four weeks in and I'm still not sure they even like each other. It seems as though they're still just curious. And they've never had a real, fun, I-can't-get-enough-of-this-person date. Each time they've been together, it's either turned into an argument or they've taken the opportunity to define their relationship: it isn't one. That's why they are still seeing other people.

Both Dana and Peter see something in one another that tells them they could get serious, but nei...

No good deed goes unpunished. At least that’s how it seems when “Eliza” (Karen Gillan) does something helpful as per her next lesson from mentor “Henry” (John Cho).

After Eliza tells Henry of her weekend plans, which include among other things trying to beat her best friend who’s gaining in Instagram followers, Henry suggests that the best way to get outside herself is to do something for someone else.

Eliza says she will dial down the fun and take on the job of helping another, if Henry for once will not work on the weekend and cut loose, to which he agrees.

“Charmonique” (Da’Vine Joy ...

5 Ways ‘Awkward’ Jenna Is Like Matty
I know what you’re thinking: 'Awkward's' Jenna and Matty couldn’t be any more different. You’d be right, but only when it comes to their rollercoaster of a relationship. A part (which is, sadly quite often this season) they’re more likely to rub off on each other. Jenna is certainly picking up on Matty’s dysfunctional relationship tips, and I highlight five of them below.

1. Secret Lovers- It’s almost like history repeating itself when junior cougar Jenna spurred a secret rendezvous relationship with sophomore Owen. Not unlike the one Matty initiated on Jenna seasons ago, and had her make ...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Season 2, Episode 4 Recap: Halloween Wars

October 20th, 2014 10:34am EDT
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Last October, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" put out an episode called "Halloween." Last night, the show put out "Halloween II."

And in trying to sequelize the insane, perfect payoff that was "Halloween," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" had one job: make things bigger than they were last year. "Halloween II" doesn't quite make it that far, but it's still a screamingly funny half-hour of TV, so it's hard to complain.

Unless one of your complaints is about Boyle not reviving the Mario Batali costume from last year.

Last year, Jake and Captain Holt placed a bet- if Jake can steal the Captain's medal of valor f...
