'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap 'Where Do We Go From Here'

January 30th, 2015 7:44am EST
grey's anatomy
Happy New Year, “Grey’s” watchers. The TGIT withdrawal has finally been lifted and we’re right where we left off. Derek’s more gung ho than ever to go to D.C., even at the risk of breaking his post-it note marriage vows. No matter, Meredith chucks the symbol of their commitment—the framed post-it note—in the trash. Shattering it in several pieces. (BTW nice touch with the intro, ShondaLand.)

The overarching theme of “Where Do We Go From Here” is adjusting to trauma. But the first step is getting over the shock. Meredith is proactive; she interviews a nanny that will more or less take Derek...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Midnight City'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Midnight City'
Welcome to week two of Arrow-less "Arrow." Last time, our valiant hero was a corpse for most of the hour (was he, though? From what Maseo and Tatsu are saying, he might have just been really, really close to death).

This time, Oliver was perfectly conscious, and kinda able to walk. But "Arrow" had more important things on its mind than Oliver doing some stretches in a cabin- so our titular hero had a scant few minutes onscreen in "Midnight City."

That's cool. More time for the supporting players. Now let the list-making begin.

10. Brick Invades the Police Station!

"Arrow's" definitely t...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Darkside Beckons

Supernatural - There's No Place Like Home
If you watched the previews for this week’s “Supernatural” and expected a whimsical thrill-ride, you were painfully, tragically misled. “There’s No Place Like Home” welcomed back adventurer Charlie Bradbury (Felicia Day), played with thematic themes of inner darkness, and saw Dean take another horrific backslide, thanks to The Mark.

Grab your favorite biggest, scariest knife, and let’s dive in, shall we?

Mark Check, 1-2-1-2 | Dean has reached a level of desperation that is downright terrifying. It’s causing him to voluntarily take actions so drastic and insane that he didn’t dare, eve...

'The Flash' Recap: Sounds Like Supervillainy

'The Flash' Recap: Sounds Like Supervillainy
It's our firm belief that every single episode of "The Flash" should open like "The Sound and the Fury" does.

That "our hero's already great at his job and he breezes through some petty crooks" opening scene is one of the oldest cliches in the (comic) book, but "The Flash" makes it work. It makes it cool.

Mostly because the action (Barry chasing three separate motorcyclists, while getting directions on the fly from Wells) was so slick, but also for the little things- Barry stealing the baddies' keys instead of beating them up.

The kind of thing that proves Barry's getting pretty good at...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Cash Game' - The Bad Get Worse
After we returned to Kentucky with a bang last week, Justified keeps the tension up with "Cash Game," the second episode of its final season. It gives important information to both the characters and the audience, as plots and people's identities start to come into focus, including some more fantastic guest stars plus another scene-stealin performance from Jacob Pitts that's the cherry on top.

Ava's having another inebriated morning, interrupted only by the realization that there is someone in her backyard barn. She grabs her revolver and heads that way; not pleased to find Boyd there, she...

Joe Weisberg And Joel Fields Talk Building 'The Americans'
Wednesday brings back one of the best shows on television: FX's The Americans. The Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell-led series looks like a spy thriller, feels like a character drama, rings true as a Cold War period piece, and has all the right stuff to make its own place in history.

What makes it so great and where is it going in season three? We posed those questions to executive producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields when we met them at FX's Television Critics Association presentation in Pasadena, and here's what secrets we could get out of them as to how they've built such an unbelievably...

It just goes to show you that the life of a transporter has a certain number of recurring concerns. Yet even on the second try, Transporter: The Series can't quite get this one to work at full speed.

You see, nine months ago, Frank was in Toronto - on a motorcycle, which is a change of pace for him - taking a very long drive to help the girlfriend of a corporate CEO escape hi...
