'Justified' Recap And Review: 'The Hunt' - One Marshal And A Baby

March 4th, 2015 10:06am EST
Justified
Remember when Raylan Givens became a father? The baby Givens has been understandably overlooked for most of the final season of Justified, but Willa is front and center in "The Hunt," along with her mother Winona (a returning Natalie Zea) and oh yeah, all those bad guys we're still trying to find.

Picking up where last week's episode left off, Raylan, Rachel, Tim and associates are still looking for the wounded Ty Walker (Garret Dillahunt), who isn't going to get any help from Markham or surviving henchman Seabass (Scott Grimes), whom Markham bribes to abandon his former CO.

But Raylan ba...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Midseason Premiere Recap: Oh, The Inhumanity!

March 4th, 2015 8:52am EST
'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Midseason Premiere Recap: Oh, The Inhum
Last season, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." started out a little so-so. Then, halfway through the season, HYDRA happened, and the show rocketed into an incredible action series.

This season, "Agents" has been, again, a little iffy. Solid in some parts, feeble in others. But now we've got Inhumans, and the Inhumans are definitely Season Two's HYDRA moment. Everything from now on should be comic book bliss.

Guess what? It totally is.

After months of playing coy with the Inhumans, "Agents" gives us all the Inhumanity we can handle. No new characters yet- we're sticking with the four core Inhuman ...

'The Walking Dead' Review: 5 Badass Moments From 'Remember'
Remember when Rick’s best friend and most trusted ally ended up being his worst enemy? Remember when the group found a safe location in the prison that they thought could sustain them with that puny garden and fenced walls? Remember when a charismatic one-eyed leader promised to take care of his people? Remember when Terminus was going to be the savior community? All of those things may have happened before, but that doesn’t mean they can’t happen again. Is it even possible for our group of survivors to ever feel safe again?

“Remember” explores that idea of acclimating to a society again a...

'Vikings' Star Katheryn Winnick: 'Lagertha Is A Free Woman'

'Vikings' Star Katheryn Winnick: 'Lagertha Is A Free Woman'
Katheryn Winnick doesn't just kick people's behinds as Lagertha on Vikings; she can do that in real life, too. Actress, martial artist and generally strong woman, this is a lady who doesn't have to pretend to be cool - she's as impressive off camera as she is in front of it.

What makes her so inspiring? We caught up with Katheryn last week to discuss where Lagertha is headed in the new season of Vikings, her memorable guest stint on TNT's Transporter: The Series, and how she became the woman audiences know and love today.

"It's a bit surreal," she said, when we asked her about the fantast...

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Killer Moments From 'Nanda Parbat'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Killer Moments From 'Nanda Parbat'
"Nanda Parbat" is the last "Arrow" we're getting for about a month. Naturally, that means cliffhangers, and the last ten minutes (ish) of "Nanda Parbat" were crammed full of 'em.

Naturally, this episode's left us with a lot of questions to linger over in the next month.

Will Oliver really be the next Ra's al Ghul? Will Nyssa side with good or evil after learning the truth about Sara's death? Will the Atom resemble the actual, comic-book Atom in any way, or just be Ray Palmer in an Iron Man suit?

For the record, we're going with: no, yes, no. Now let's count down the best moments from "Na...

'The Americans' Star Noah Emmerich On His Journey To Television

'The Americans' Star Noah Emmerich On His Journey To Television
Noah Emmerich wasn't looking for a television show when The Americans came calling. With movies like Cop Land, Frequency, Miracle and Super 8 to his name, his longest TV role was doing a four-episode arc as shady FBI agent Garrett Fowler on USA's White Collar. The idea of a series regular part just didn't appeal to him.

"For a long time, I thought I wanted to avoid doing a series," Noah explained when we sat down with him at FX's Television Critics Association. "I thought I'd get bored by the repetition. One of the main reasons I wanted to become an actor was to try on so many different ha...

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Alive Day' - In Which People End Up Dead

'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Alive Day' - In Which People End
For an episode called "Alive Day," this week's Justified deals an awful lot with death. As in, several people meet theirs by the time the credits roll. This is how it always starts on this show: first the small fish start to be bumped off, then the next thing you know we're climbing the food chain until there's a whole collection of bodies. But who's really deserving of their demise?

Naturally, this episode picks up near where last week left off, because that ending was too intriguing not to do something with. Boyd is understandably suspicious to find Raylan's car out in front of Ava's hou...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 5 Badass Moments From 'The Distance'
A safe location, the promise of food and safety, and new characters who don’t look like they slept in the gutter for a month? Things are looking up for both the group and the viewers. After years and years in Atlanta, encountering the same walker-filled wooded area, with the potential for the same type of villains, the group has finally gotten somewhere new. There’s a lot of exciting potential for the future of this show, but its success all depends on the next episode and on the characters that are introduced there. The Governor and the hipster cannibals were terrific antagonists, so those...

Two For Two: 'Strike Back's' Philip Winchester Lands NBC Pilot
NBC is in the Strike Back way, as another pilot at the Peacock has just added another star of the Cinemax drama into its fold. Philip Winchester, who portrays Strike Back's Sgt. Michael Stonebridge, has been cast as the lead in NBC's pilot Endgame.

In Endgame - not to be confused with the Shawn Doyle-led mystery series of the same name - Winchester (pictured above left) will play another character with a connection to the military. Alex is a former military officer who now works as a security expert in Las Vegas.

According to a report from Deadline Hollywood, he "is drawn into a mysteriou...

'12 Monkeys' Takes Amanda Schull To Number 1

February 20th, 2015 12:06pm EST
Amanda Schull
SyFy's 12 Monkeys has been one of the biggest surprises of the new TV season: a smart, legitimately suspenseful science-fiction thriller that's already blown the movie out of the water. Within that, one of the best things about it is that its main ensemble is comprised entirely of actors who've been doing tremendous work elsewhere and are now really getting a chance to shine.

One of those is Amanda Schull, who won us over as hard-charging lawyer Katrina Bennett on USA's Suits, and is now playing a strong woman of a different kind as Dr. Cassandra Railly, the woman who may hold the future o...
