'How To Get Away With Murder' Season 1 Episode 6 Recap: A Dweeb In D-bag's Clothing

October 31st, 2014 10:43am EDT
How to get Away With Murder
After weeks of being left out of the murder club, tonight we finally get a glimpse into Asher Millstone, who is really just a complete dweeb in douchebag’s clothing. Asher provides some much serious comic relief on the show and is also perhaps the “purest” of the kids. Sure, he’s the poster boy for white privilege and wears it proudly on his button down-sweater combos, but there’s something also so sweet about his awfulness.

Asher may have grown up as a rich, entitled little Main Line brat (I’m assuming he grew up on the Main Line, which is a very rich and old area of Philadelphia suburbs)...

'Scandal' Review: Best Moments From 'An Innocent Man'

'Scandal' Review: Best Moments From 'An Innocent Man'
There are no innocent men on Scandal. Or women. Many of the characters like to claim they wear “white hats” and have high opinions of their own moralities, but we see each and every one of them commit atrocious acts in the name of getting their way. “An Innocent Man” plays on that duality between characters that want to do good things but are constantly lured into hurting people. In four seasons, most of these characters have yet to grasp that, but they’re finally starting. A few characters began to step out of their “good person” mode and towards the first strong character development in a...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: Why Did Damon Return Without Bon
The Vampire Diaries season 6 started off with the adorable and intriguing pairing of Bonnie and Damon. Their bickering has been the highlight of this season-so far. Last night's episode ripped our duo apart. One had to stay with the devilishly charming, but totally psychotic, Kai. The other got to return home on The Vampire Diaries season 6. We'll give you one guess to get it right. Hint: the one that always sacrifices themself did it again.

'American Horror Story Freak Show' Rundown On 'Edward Mordrake Part 2'

October 30th, 2014 8:39am EDT
'American Horror Story Freak Show' Rundown On 'Edward Mordrake P
In just one episode, American Horror Story: Freak Show may have solved most of its biggest problems. The show still has about 5 characters too many to focus on and tends towards shock value over proper plot, but it took a few strides forward in the culmination of the Edward Mordrake saga. Thankfully, the season is finally starting to pull together the pieces of the puzzle, instead of letting characters and plot lines wander all over. Plus no musical number, thank God.

Here’s a rundown on “Edward Mordrake Part 2:”

New Characters to Remember

None. Could the show finally be focusing on the ...

'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...

'The Affair' Season 1 Episode 3 Review: 'Don't Wake Up'

'The Affair' Season 1 Episode 3 Review: 'Don't Wake Up'
For a show entitled The Affair, it sure is taking a long time getting to the affair part of the story, but I guess that has been the point all along. Even though the series’ premise suggests we’d be watching a titillating story about an illicit and potentially tragic love affair and nothing more, the show has delivered an intriguing and intricately built narrative that goes beyond its initial appeal. It is not just about two people falling into bed together; it is about how their unexpected attraction will leave a trail of consequences and lasting impressions on the lives of those around th...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Personal (And State) Lines

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Persona
Now The Good Wife fans have seen Alicia kick off her campaign for Cook County State's Attorney, and see the roles reversed from the pilot six seasons ago. As if that wasn't one big image to put into our heads, Sunday's episode gave us another one: Alicia reclaiming Will Gardner's office. Oh, and Cary's in trouble again and Elsbeth is her typical awesomely out of left field self, but mostly, this one was about the chair.

Picking up the plot from last week's "Shiny Objects," Alicia's sexual discrimination case has now become a first-rate cluster since AUSA Josh Perotti (Kyle MacLachlan) is p...

'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.

'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...
