'Game Of Thrones': Exciting Prospects Are On The Horizon

April 27th, 2015 9:00am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Recap: 5 Memorable Moments From 'The High Spar
The best thing this season of Game of Thrones has done is converge some of the many characters into single storylines. With a great many characters spread all across the many lands, there’s a danger of losing focus and having too much going on. That’s always been one of the major downfalls of the show, having too much going on and not enough time to fully focus on the characters that really matter.

But this season has put characters that were adrift on a path that will see them come together. The possibilities of the future storylines with characters that normally wouldn’t interact are one...

Kevin Sorbo Returns To Fantasy In CONtv's New Series 'Mythica'
Kevin Sorbo just keeps on saving the world. The actor, best known for portraying the title role in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, is back for a new adventure in CONtv's new epic trilogy Mythica.

The first installment A Quest for Heroes premiered at the end of March, and Kevin - who plays the wizard Gojun, mentor to heroine Marek (Melanie Stone) as she pulls together a team of adventurers to save her endangered sister - sat down with us to talk about his latest role.

"Mythica is in the fantasy genre, like Hercules, but has more of a Lord of the Rings feel to it," Kevin explained. "They'...

'The Vampire Diaries' Emotional And Eventful Night

April 24th, 2015 10:07am EDT
'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Bonnie And Damon Fall Out And Other
The Vampire Diaries season 6 brought out the dark sides to Caroline and Stefan. Last week on the series, Stefan regained his humanity-due to the help of Mama Salvatore. Caroline quickly took off to avoid feeling again. Last night, the emotions came pouring back in for Caroline on The Vampire Diaries.

Meanwhile, a major decision involving the cure drew Elena and Damon closer together, while pulling him further from Bonnie and Lily. We also got to see Lily "I only care about my family" Salvatore show some emotions to an unexpected ally. It was a very emotional, and eventful night on The Vamp...

Review: 'Scandal' Is In A Rut

April 24th, 2015 9:41am EDT
'Scandal' Review: 'First Lady Sings The Blues' Can't Move Forwar
Fake outs are cop outs. Just as predicted in the last review, Jake’s “death” was short lived. In fact, it lasted all of 2 minutes, after Huck revived a man, who had been stabbed multiple times and was bleeding out for God knows how long, by hitting him hard in the chest. Science! The rest of “First Lady Sings the Blues” is a race to ensure Jake survives.

There’s so much wrong with this. First of all, Russell is the world’s worst assassin. He stabbed Jake multiple times, but still managed to miss every major artery. Then, in some sort of attempt to be Joe Carroll from The Following, he deci...

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...

Top 'Arrow' Moments That Left Us Gasping

April 23rd, 2015 9:42am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Insane Moments From 'The Fallen'
Asking didn't work. Impersonating the Arrow didn't work. Assassinating the Mayor of Starling City didn't work.

No, it turns out "stabbing Oliver's loved ones" is the tried-and-true way to convince Oliver Queen to become Ra's al Ghul. Which is exactly what happened in "The Fallen," the episode of "Arrow" that finally accomplished what "Arrow" has been building towards for almost an entire season now.

Oliver Queen is Ra's al Ghul. Which might make things awkward the next time "Arrow" crosses over with "The Flash."

Now let's count down the ten moments in "The Fallen" that left us gasping.

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': 'Frenemy Of My Frenemy'

April 22nd, 2015 12:00pm EDT
'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Skye's Dad Is Suddenly A Really
"The Frenemy of my Enemy" is such an apt title. This entire hour of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." was a mess of weird ties between characters who are supposed to hate each other, but have to put all that aside when Hydra suddenly rejoins the fracas in a major way. The lines aren't so much blurred as they are invisible. And also hidden behind a Helicarrier.

(Also, Hydra's newest head is one Baron Strucker, who just happens to be a part of "Avengers: Age of Ultron"- we're officially in "Age of Ultron" tie-in time, people).

The first of many strange alliance shifts: May is suddenly super sympathe...

Latest 'Flash' Episode Setting Up Something Big?

April 22nd, 2015 10:03am EDT
'The Flash' Recap: 'Who is Harrison Wells?' Sets The Stage For A
What is it with "The Flash's" female characters slowly becoming totally unlikable?

Iris has been ice-cold to Eddie for weeks now (yes, he's obviously lying to her, but he's a cop and you'd think he'd get a pass on secret, potentially traumatic cop stuff he can't talk about). Also, from our perspective as TV-watchers, Eddie has been heroically helping the Flash while Iris keeps yelling at him.

Hopefully that "I'm helping the Flash" half-truth will mend them up nicely.

But in "Who is Harrison Wells?" Caitlin's begun the same process. Yes, we know she's a decent human being and she doesn't ...

'Game Of Thrones' Characters Reunited And Some Best Moments

April 20th, 2015 9:08am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Recap: 5 Best Moments From 'The House Of Black
“The House of Black and White” is an even stronger episode than the first, proving the season is definitely on track to be more than shoehorned scenes to meet quotas and dragging storylines. Every piece felt like it was progressing the story inside on continuing old threads from the seasons before. There are still some massive missteps, such as overestimating how long we’ll stomach Tyrion’s self-pity and our interest in Grey Worm, but overall it was a great episode of new beginnings and endings. Here are the best moments of the episode:

Brienne’s History of Failure

It was a bit of a sitco...

'Grey’s Anatomy': What Are The Flashing Lights Outside Of Meredith’s Door?

April 17th, 2015 9:34am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap: Derek Is Found?
“Where is Derek?”

With the blue-eyed resident he locked lips with in D.C.? Nope. Based on next week’s promo, for a non-singing “How to Save a Life” episode, he’s speeding down the highway…until he witnesses a car accident. Being McDreamy he stops to save lives.

But, why are there emergency flashing lights outside of Meredith’s door at the end of this week’s episode? Did Derek get hurt in the crossfire? OMG, Was he sacrificed? Hence, the how to save a life theme. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Let’s stick to what we do know: Webber likes to jam to ‘70s girl group Musique’s “In the Bush”...
