'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Shiny Objects' - Hackers, Pen
With it having been established that Alicia will run for Cook County State's Attorney, it's time for The Good Wife to get her back into the courtroom. The show does that with a flourish, bringing back some familiar faces to give her some stiff competition, while Diane tries to deal when a hacker gets into the Florrick/Agos/Lockhart computers and the political process drives another wedge into the Florrick marriage.

Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston) is back and still as quirky as ever, which is driving her co-counsel Rayna Hecht (Jill Hennessy) a little crazy. Especially when the company t...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Man Behind The Curtain

October 19th, 2014 9:15am EDT
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Ma
The sophomore (sort of) outing of Transporter: The Series sends Frank Stateside to deal with a figure from his past who, naturally, needs his old acquaintance to save the day. You may have heard this plot before, but when it includes our first look behind the curtain at what shaped Frank Martin, plus some entertaining setpieces along the way, one can't seriously argue with traversing some familiar territory.

There's a street race going on in Philadelphia, and not even a phone call from Dieter can derail Frank's best Fast & Furious impression. But of course, this isn't just a joyride; there...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Trojan Horsepower'
Buckle up, because we've just found your new Saturday night obsession. Jumping off from the film trilogy, Transporter: The Series finally makes its American TV debut two years after its premiere - and with speed, style, entertaining stunts and a sterling performance from Chris Vance, it's absolutely worth the wait.

For those of you who haven't seen the movies, a quick primer: former SAS and Special Forces operative Frank Martin (Jason Statham in the films, now succeeded by Vance) is a freelance "transporter" who has only three rules: never change the deal, don't use any names, and never op...

'Blue Bloods' S5 Ep4: Did Hot Head Danny Use "Excessive Force"?

October 18th, 2014 12:20pm EDT
DW
Did he jump or was he pushed?

That's the question of the day when "Detective Danny Reagan" (Donnie Wahlberg) is accused of throwing a young black man out of a third-floor window.

Danny and "Baez" (Marisa Ramirez) were taking a coffee break when they interrupted a robbery at a small bodega. They chased the suspect, who ran off after throwing hot coffee all over Baez, and Danny cornered the guy in the hallway of an apartment building. A little boy opened his door and was watching the two men, when Danny told him to go inside, but the kid didn't obey and heard Danny say, "Hands against the w...

Erica Durance Is Back On The Case In 'Wedding Planner Mystery'
Erica Durance has a knack for playing problem-solvers. On CTV's Saving Hope, she faces life and death medical situations. In The CW's Smallville, she was the ultimate investigative journalist, Lois Lane. This Sunday, things aren't quite as serious as doctors and superheroes, but Erica's still on the case in the Hallmark original movie Wedding Planner Mystery.

Stepping into the stylish outfits of wedding planner Carnegie Kincaid, who finds herself suspected following a murder and kidnapping, Erica sat down with us last week to discuss the movie based on the Deborah Donnelly novel Veiled Thr...

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: The Curious Case of Connor Walsh

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: The Curious Case of Connor
Anyone else a little fatigued about all of these flashbacks? For me, it's because I’m not learning too much from them; I'm learning more about the present, which is more interesting. Case in point: what did we really learn about the season long mystery?

Other than the new fact that Asher knew his fellow law students were in Keating’s office the night they murdered her husband, we don’t learn much in these flashbacks. Michaela is still a hot mess, Rebecca’s oddly calm back at the Murder House and something has obviously cracked inside Connor.

The present is far more interesting than the fu...

'Scandal' Review: 4 Times Olivia is The Best and 4 Times Fitz is The Worst in 'The Bleep'

'Scandal' Review: 4 Times Olivia is The Best and 4 Times Fitz is
The biggest failure of season 3 was the slow destruction of Olivia Pope. A character that started out as a single-minded woman with an almost supernatural ability to fix problems and a policy for no crying became a weepy, wine-drinking, love sick girl. The transformation was a disservice to a character who was built on strength, all in the name of appeasing fans who were aboard the “Olitz” train.

To make matters worse, her major love interests could not be less appealing. Her married presidential boyfriend was often comfortable calling her a slut, manhandling her, and treating her like she...
