Actor Undercover: Meet 'Scandal's' Double Agent Brian Letscher
Don't worry, Brian Letscher's only pretending to be lethal. As Secret Service agent slash B613 operative Tom Larsen on Scandal, the actor's complicit in the death of President Grant's son Jerry, tried to kill former boss Jake Ballard (Scott Foley), and is on the hot seat with the nefarious Rowan Pope (Joe Morton). And tomorrow, he might just add to his body count with a juicy new role in NBC's supernatural thriller Grimm.

But in real life, he's the nicest guy you could ever hope to meet. We caught up with Brian last week to discuss how much street cred he gets from playing the bad guy, wha...

'The Middle' Season 6, Episode 4 Review: Happy 20-Somethingth Anniversary

October 23rd, 2014 10:50am EDT
The Middle
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” These words of wisdom popularized by W.E. Hickson are a constant source of inspiration, or the complete opposite of inspiration, for the Heck family. “The Table” was an emblematic episode demonstrating how much everyone in this family believes that it is never worth trying but they ultimate make do with the beaten-down lot they have in a way that is really all about trying anyway. Except for Sue. Sue never hears the same message about giving up from the universe that her parents hear.

The funny thing about not trying when it comes to Fra...

'Forever' S1 Ep6: 'The Frustrating Thing About Psychopaths'

'Forever' S1 Ep6: 'The Frustrating Thing About Psychopaths'
If you’re going to catch a murder case, make it a legendary one.

“Jo” (Alana De La Garza) needs “Henry” (Ioan Gruffudd) down at the stationhouse ASAP. A package has been delivered to the squad room and there’s a human heart inside.

Henry works his medical examiner magic and discovers the heart belonged to a woman. Jo takes over the investigation and finds out that the woman was a prostitute named Mary Kelly – the same name as the last victim of Jack the Ripper.

In fact, she was killed the exact same way. Henry should know, since he was there for that murder too.

And so was Adam, Henry’s...

'Manhattan Love Story' Season 1 Episode 4: 'It's Complicated'

'Manhattan Love Story' Season 1 Episode 4: 'It's Complicated'
“Dana” (Analeigh Tipton) and “Peter” (Jake McDorman) think it's time they had sex.

These two give me a migraine. It's four weeks in and I'm still not sure they even like each other. It seems as though they're still just curious. And they've never had a real, fun, I-can't-get-enough-of-this-person date. Each time they've been together, it's either turned into an argument or they've taken the opportunity to define their relationship: it isn't one. That's why they are still seeing other people.

Both Dana and Peter see something in one another that tells them they could get serious, but nei...

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Season 2, Episode 5 Recap: Daddy Issues

October 22nd, 2014 8:55am EDT
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
It's safe to say that "A Hen in the Wolf House" has wrapped up the first chapter of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" second season.

Last night, Coulson and the gang swept up about half the plot points we've been dealing with all season, and wrapped them up in a nice neat bow.

Skye doesn't know about her dad? She does now. Coulson keeping Skye in the dark about his brain drain? Not anymore. Simmons undercover with HYDRA? Doubt we'll see any more of that for a while. Fitz hallucinating his own private Simmons? Given that Simmons is back, we've probably seen the last of that too.

Still at large: ...

No good deed goes unpunished. At least that’s how it seems when “Eliza” (Karen Gillan) does something helpful as per her next lesson from mentor “Henry” (John Cho).

After Eliza tells Henry of her weekend plans, which include among other things trying to beat her best friend who’s gaining in Instagram followers, Henry suggests that the best way to get outside herself is to do something for someone else.

Eliza says she will dial down the fun and take on the job of helping another, if Henry for once will not work on the weekend and cut loose, to which he agrees.

“Charmonique” (Da’Vine Joy ...
