'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Everlasting' - A Bomb And A Bab

Andy is uncomfortable about having to work alongside Marlo (Rachael Ancheril) in the hunt for mad bomber Ted McDonald. You know w...

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Fragments' - Blowing Up The Hou
We've come to the end of another season of Rookie Blue. It's been a season of ups and downs this year, so a strong finish is definitely in order. Boosted by the return appearance of a fantastic guest actor, "Fragments" starts an interesting enough story, although it places a tremendous amount of emphasis on a character who hasn't ever quite worked.

It's not uncommon for season finales to start well and end badly, so it's no surprise that everyone's getting ready for the Commissioner's Gala, Holly wants to get back with Gail, and Sam is offering Andy a key to his place that she doesn't want...

'Suits' Season 4 Summer Finale Recap And Review: 'This Is Rome'
There are only two shows with finale episodes that regularly cause us to have heart problems. One is Strike Back and the other, believe it or not, is Suits. The folks on the Suits writing staff know how to build their seasons to points where there is a ridiculous amount of tension and emotional payoff.
