Memorable Moments From 'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale

'The Walking Dead' Recap: Memorable Moments From 'Start To Finis
That was a fitting end to a completely unmemorable first half. The midseason finale is meant to tide hardcore The Walking Dead fans over until the second half of the season begins in a few months. It’s supposed to tie up loose ends and get us excited for the rest of the episodes. “Start to Finish” does none of that. It feels as empty, unfinished, and barely thought through as the rest of the season.

With any luck the second half of the season will have:

Better character relationships: We barely got to see any of the amazing central relationships of the show develop. Rick/Michonne, Rick/...

WB To Air 'Batman v. Superman' Sneak Peek

WB To Air 'Batman v. Superman' Sneak Peek During 'Gotham' Finale
Warner Bros. Studios is doing a nifty bit of cross-promotion on Monday, using the fall finale of FOX's Gotham to air an exclusive sneak peek of the highly anticipated feature film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Gotham, of course, tells the origin story of Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) before he becomes Batman, along with the beginnings of several other key Bat-universe players including James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), and Riddler (Cory Michael Smith). So there's no better forum to give fans an early look at Batman's next adventure.

If you can't wait until Mond...

Are You Looking For A TV Series That Puts Action At The Forefront?

Is 'Agent X' The Future Of Action Television?
In TNT's Agent X, John Case (Jeff Hephner) is charged with taking on high-risk missions for the United States. He might also be taking on the future of the action genre on television.

2015 has seen the end of the majority of action-driven series on TV. Cinemax's Strike Back, the cream of the crop, went out with a bang in early October. Its spiritual successor, NBC's The Player, had its plug prematurely yanked last week. TNT's own past contribution to the genre, the import Transporter: The Series, ended way back in the spring.

There are some series with strong action components - NBC's Bli...

Peter Capaldi's Solo 'Doctor Who' Episode Proves Why He Was Such A Brilliant Casting Choice

Peter Capaldi's Solo 'Doctor Who' Adventure Is A Success
This week's Doctor Who was a solo showcase for Peter Capaldi as The Doctor, after last week he said goodbye to Jenna Coleman's Clara Oswald. Although Coleman still had a cameo appearance in "Heaven Sent," this episode was Capaldi's show and it proved why he has been a brilliant casting choice as The Doctor.

Realizing that he's been teleported into a glass chamber inside a mysterious castle, The Doctor spends the episode trying to sort out his whereabouts, dealing with a mysterious creature known as the Veil (played by Jami Reid-Quarrell), and processing what happened to Clara.

As Doctor W...

John Larroquette Talks Season 2 Of 'The Librarians'

'The Librarians': John Larroquette Discusses Season 2
With Thanksgiving behind us, TNT's The Librarians is back in action tomorrow. That makes it the perfect time to bring out our last New York Comic Con interview, in which John Larroquette talks about the history of Jenkins and what's ahead for the crusty caretaker in the future.

"Jenkins at first is saddled with a big problem and it runs through a lot of the series," he explained. "Even though the library finally has returned from the void, it's sick. It's ill. The brooms are in wrong places, things have disappeared, its a mess.

"For a lot of the season he thinks it's his fault - that he h...

'Scream Queens': A Rundown From 'Thanksgiving'

'Scream Queens' Recap: 'Thanksgiving,' Accusations, And Bloodlin
Last week was such a tease. Nearly everything we were promised from “Thanksgiving” ended up cut in favor of a lot of whodunit chatter. There was no Grace and Zayday trip to the house of the chainsaw loving grandma. Chad’s house wasn’t remotely haunted like he described. We barely saw anything of Chanel #3’s mom who allegedly had an affair with Charles Manson. Only a few moments were devoted to the twisted Thanksgiving shenanigans of Gigi and the last remaining Red Devil. Overall it was a disappointment. Although there were many revelations and plenty of funny moments, it didn’t live up to t...

What We Learned From The 'Blindspot' Fall Finale

What We Learned From 'Blindspot': Don't Walk Alone At Night
Blindspot's Jane Doe is normally a pretty smart character, but in Monday's fall finale "Evil Handmade Instrument," she made a not so smart decision that wound up almost getting her killed.

Jane (Jaimie Alexander) ditched her FBI security detail so that she could make a visit to Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) and surprise him with a kiss. But, as he chastised her beforehand, it wasn't a good idea for her to be without someone keeping an eye on her.

Especially not as Jane walked away from the apartment on her own - and within moments, was nabbed by CIA thugs and thrown into the back of another...

'The Walking Dead' Review: Awards For 'Heads Up'

'The Walking Dead' Recap: Noteworthy Award Moments From 'Heads U
“Heads Up” is one of the better episodes from the 6th season. It has a nice mixture of characters, without ever making the mistake of pretending to care about the Alexandrians on their own. It finally ended the farce of a certain “death” while marching the story forward a bit more. Now if only we could put an end to the constant speeches that make up every episode these days.

Here are the character and scene awards for “Heads Up:”

Least Surprising Moment: Glenn’s Alive

Duh. While it looks like he might not be the voice on the radio from the end of the last episode, he hid under the dumps...

John Kim & Lindy Booth Talk 'Librarians' Season 2

'The Librarians' Stars John Kim & Lindy Booth Discuss Season 2
The adventure of TNT's The Librarians continues tomorrow, and so do our interviews with the cast from New York Comic Con. We sat down with cast members Lindy Booth (pictured above) and John Kim to discuss where their characters, Cassandra and Ezekiel, find themselves in Season 2.

"It's amazing," Lindy said of coming back for more episodes. "Part of the fun of it too is that the writers understand us more than last year, so there's bits and pieces of us that are sort of creeping into the show a little bit more and they understand our voices and our characters' voices, so there's a greater d...

What We Learned From 'The Player' Last Night

What We Learned From 'The Player': Always Value Your Friends
The Player signed off on Thursday night, but not before it had one more lesson to impart to the audience: that friendship is a difficult thing sometimes and if you're smart, you'll never forget the value of your friends.

The bond between Alex Kane (Philip Winchester) and his longtime best friend Cal Brown (Damon Gupton) was one of the aspects of the show that didn't get explored enough, but it was front and center in "Tell."

Cal, pressured by FBI agent Rose Nolan (KaDee Strickland) into thinking he was protecting Alex, agreed to an illegal and unethical interrogation of Cassandra King (Ch...
