'Arrow' Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: 10 Shocking Moments from 'The Magician'

October 30th, 2014 9:19am EDT
Arrow - The CW
Who would have thought that killing off a major character on "Arrow" would have these kinds of repercussions?

We lost Sara Lance to a hail of arrow-fire in the season premiere, and since then things have only been getting more intense. By our fourth episode, last night's "The Magician," Oliver & co haven't gotten any closer to actually finding Sara's killer (we've learned it might be Merlyn, but probably not and probably Ra's al Ghul).

It's not a lot. But hey, we've still got nearly a full season to get through, so presumably there's more to learn in the weeks ahead. And besides, "The Ma...

'Supernatural' 10.4 Recap: Family Affair

October 29th, 2014 11:09am EDT
Supernatural
Though “Supernatural” premiered nearly a month ago, Tuesday’s episode felt like the true beginning of the season. “Paper Moon” marked the return of the pristine Impala, the return of the monsters, the return of a familiar face from season 9 and most importantly, the return of the brothers.

Grab your sunglasses and let’s dive in, shall we?

The Case | The monster-of-the-week cases often work as emotional mirror, reflecting paralleling the Winchesters’ lives. This week’s case was about as subtle as a volcanic eruption. Last season in the voyeuristic “Bitten”—a found footage thematic epi...

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Season 2, Episode 6 Recap: Ward vs. Ward vs. Grumpy Cat

October 29th, 2014 10:10am EDT
Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Before we start this week's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." recap, there's something that needs a quick shout-out.

The funny stuff this season has felt a little weak. Mostly it's coming from Coulson, who gets one or two allotted quips per episode. The majority are hammy and not particularly gut-busting. But also not something we'd actively cringe at.

But really, Grumpy Cat? That's a new low, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." In the future, please refrain from slapping any more Grumpy Cat mugs into anyone's hands, with the expectation that we will laugh at a two year-old Internet meme (that, let's be hone...

'The Flash' Season 1, Episode 4 Recap: Icy Villains, Steamy Romance And A Man Named 'Snart'

October 29th, 2014 9:06am EDT
The Flash
It's impressive how "The Flash" can pander so profoundly to its audience and never actually come off as pandering. "Going Rogue" was overstuffed with moments large and small, all meant to cause Flash fans of every stripe to squeal with "I understand this reference" glee.

Yet "Going Rogue" never felt draggy or overstuffed or overly fan-heavy. Kudos.

Examples: Barry, Iris, Felicity and Eddie's trivia game was hosted by one Oswald Loomis- aka DC villain the Prankster. The helpful museum employee who first noticed Captain Cold? Dexter Myles- who, in Flash comicdom, is the curator of the Flash...

'Sleepy Hollow' Review: 10 Awesome Moments From 'And The Abyss Gazes Back'

October 28th, 2014 9:23am EDT
Sleepy Hollow
Sleepy Hollow really is moving at a snail’s pace this year. Season one was a treat, with its rare shortened season, where every episode felt like it had a purpose for the overall show. Each episode this season has felt like its inching towards something bigger, but the pacing is so off that it’s easy to feel impatient for the meat of the season. Henry, the big ol’ baddie of war, is literally walking around town masquerading as a lawyer, sending new villains at Ichabod and Abbie every week, unchecked. It makes our protagonists look reactive when they should be active. Really, the show needs ...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 10 Badass Moments From 'Four Walls And
Damn, this season is moving at a lightning speed. After 4 seasons of slow moving plots, in which spending half a season looking for a single character was expected, The Walking Dead has finally found an exciting pace that matches the tone of the show. Instead of making us wait another 5 episodes for the highly anticipated Gareth and Rick confrontation, new EP Scott Gimple puts it smack dab in the 3rd episode. On to the next thing.

Every episode so far this season has resolved some issue (how long will it take to get out of Terminus? Will they get a clue about Beth’s whereabouts? Will they ...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Sharks' - Tough Day At The Office

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Sharks' - Tough Day
At this point, Transporter: The Series is starting to feel like a well-oiled machine, just like the cars it so embraces. It's doing what every good TV series should do - take us on an extended journey with its characters. And just when it has made us laugh with one story, then it returns with a more serious mission that reminds us how well developed it's becoming and how talented its star is.

Frank's second contract in week two brings him back to his home territory of Paris. He argues with Dieter about why he still hasn't driven the red Audi we first glimpsed in "Trojan Horsepower" before ...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Hot Ice' - Diamonds Aren't Forever

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Hot Ice' - Diamonds
Transporter: The Series continues its high-speed drive in week two, with Frank going to a hockey game and a fight breaking out, but not before the audience enjoys some truly perfectly placed verbal jabs and a few guest appearances from some familiar faces. The result is the show's most fun episode to date, reminding us that it is possible to deliver the package and enjoy the ride, too.

Remember at the end of last week when Frank said he was going to Canada? Well, he's in Canada. Toronto, specifically, using a parking garage as his personal vehicle testing ground - you have to love the part...

'Constantine' Series Premiere Rundown: 'Non Est Asylum'

October 25th, 2014 8:23am EDT
'Constantine' Series Premiere Rundown: 'Non Est Asylum'
Television is packed with supernatural themed shows that feature dark protagonists who are brooding with the burden of fighting otherworldly horrors while combatting their horrific past. These types of shows continually push the limits of the violence and gore that can be shown on television and are light on compelling female characters. Constantine is not much different.

If there was a checklist of all the things you’d expect from the genre, Constantine would hit them all. Sarcastic lead character who uses humor to mask past horrors? Check. An ensemble of sidekicks with varying Dues Ex Ma...
