Extant
“Extant’s” final ep of the season ended on bittersweet note; Ethan finally discovered his purpose, which has ramifications for everyone, and Molly unknowingly got the miracle child she always wanted.

Let’s begin the “Ascension” recap in 3, 2, 1…ready for lift off? Well, I’m starting even if you’re not. “Extant’s” 13th and final episode of the season (fingers crossed for another season, no renewal date has been announced) kicks off with a somber Ethan playing with a space shuttle toy in his room, signaling Molly’s return to the Seraphim.

She comes in to apologize about freaking out on him ...

'Under the Dome' Season 2, Episode 12: Let's Get Stabby

September 16th, 2014 9:06am EDT
Under the Dome
Last week on "Under the Dome," we ended on a deadly contracting Dome. This week, with "Turn," we still have that deadly contracting dome... that's contracting way slower than it was last week.

C'mon, last week Joe and Norrie could barely outrun the thing. Now it's moving a foot every four hours.

But the Dome's eventual-crushing speed is neither here nor there. What matters is that in a certain amount of time (given the Dome's current shrink rate, probably two or three weeks), everyone and everything in Chester's Mill will be compressed into a tiny sphere the size of a marble.

Master Of Sex: Best Moments From 'Below The Belt'

Master Of Sex: Best Moments From 'Below The Belt'
“Below the Belt” was not one of Masters of Sex’s best episodes. It highlighted many of the problems with this very uneven season. Every individual episode is brilliantly written, with witty dialogue and subversive plotting. However, the season as a whole is brimming with issues. Many of the plots and characters have gone so off track, including Libby going from bored housewife to demonic racist to her old self again with no explanation and Betty’s domestic problems with the pretzel king.

Yet, as with every episode, there are plenty of amazing moments in “Below the Belt.” Here are a few of ...

'The Strain' Season 1 Episode 10 Recap: Take my (Undead) Wife, P
This was an unfortunate week (day, really, even though to us at home it feels week-ish) for Ephraim Goodweather.

All the guy wants is to reunite with his ex- he already hacked the head off her new man with the blade of a shovel, so that's the perfect opportunity to make a move. But as "Loved Ones" proves, vampires that specifically go after the ones they are just terrible news for everyone.

Last week's episode teased a great quest for Kelly's life, and this week doesn't disappoint. Except that we get about twenty minutes into this grand quest and Kelly jams a blender blade into Matt's ch...

'Under the Dome' Season 2 Episode 10 Recap: Excitement! Suspense! A Spinning Dome That's Frozen For Some Reason!

September 9th, 2014 10:49am EDT
Under the Dome
Two more episodes and "Under the Dome" will have capped its second season. So at this juncture, we ask: which of the series' many crisis-of-the-week threats will be our Great Finale Crisis?

Barbie's dad and his evil tech corporation are a suitable end boss. Perhaps. But they've got the egg and they have zero idea what to do with it. As "Black Ice" proves, attempts to solve the egg with science result in people getting zapped by egg-lightning.

Chester's MIll's unseasonable cold spell was teased last week, and brought out in full force for "Black Ice." Might this be our fabled final crisis?...
