'The Mindy Project': Diary Of A Mad Indian Woman

November 19th, 2014 12:07pm EST
The Mindy Project
If there was an episode for Mindy Kaling to submit to the Emmys, it should be this one. Sure, there are episodes that showcase her character’s amazing chemistry and romance with Danny Castellano, or where she spars against Annette Castellano or wingman for Peter. But this episode is a welcome change to the season three Mindy formula. Mindy’s a doctor again and finally, finally, there is a crack in TV’s best relationship since Tammy and Coach Taylor.

Mindy, equipped with a brand new hair-do courtesy of a dead woman, wants Danny to spend more time at her place, which is an apartment full of...

Laura Spencer Doubles Her Success In 'Big Bang Theory' And 'Bone
What's better than a recurring part on one hit TV show? How about recurring parts on two hit TV shows?

That's what's happened for actress Laura Spencer, who not only plays Raj's girlfriend Emily Sweeney on CBS's The Big Bang Theory, but also wears the lab coat of intern Jessica Warren on FOX's Bones. That means on any given Thursday, more than 20 million TV viewers could be seeing her.

We caught up with Laura last week to get a little dish on each series, talk about how she pulls off double duty, and ask her how she's going to program her DVR on Thursday nights.

After all, what's a girl ...

'New Girl' Recap: Why Are You a Teacher?

November 19th, 2014 11:56am EST
New Girl
Those who can’t do, teach, and those who can’t teach, teach gym, and also health apparently. But “New Girl” will have none of the negativity of that aphorism! Coach was assured several times throughout “Teachers” that Health is the most important subject in school. There may have been a bit of exaggeration here, but the sentiment was sincere. Coach’s colleagues really did believe that the students needed someone to yell at them about chlamydia.

This episode was purposeful in its simple title. It was a rejoinder to the words of George Bernard Shaw, Woody Allen, and Jack Black, serving ...

'Sleepy Hollow' Review: 5 Best Moments From 'Mama'

November 18th, 2014 9:01am EST
'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: 5 Best Moments From 'Mama'
Abbie Takes Center Stage

Most of season two has centered on Ichabod, Katrina, their elderly son, and their marital issues. Part of the reason the season has been less successful than the first is due to Abbie taking a backseat to these less than interesting plots. Even Ichabod, a once great character, has become a repetitive, cliché joke.

Luckily “Mama” addresses the concern early on by giving Ichabod a cold, having Hawley trick him into taking a sleep aid (aka the one good thing Hawley has ever done), and keeping him off-screen for most of the episode. Without him around to make the apoc...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Celebrate Thanksgiving With An Anthrax Scare!

November 17th, 2014 9:38am EST
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Thanksgiving means so many things to the 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' precinct. Some love their turkey day (and insist it ONLY be referred to as "Turkey Day"- thanks Boyle) while others deride the holiday and think turkey tastes like napkins.

But no one gets the holiday they wanted this year once a package of unidentified white powder ends up at the station.

It's an anthrax scare Thanksgiving! And worse, Captain Holt and Seargent Terry are out on other business, and for some terrible reason they've left Jake in charge (in any other circumstance, Amy would leap at the opportunity to sit in Holt's ...

'Bob's Burgers': 'You Technically Are My Best Friend'

November 17th, 2014 8:42am EST
Bob's Burgers
What is a best friend? And how do you know when you have one? When it comes to romance, it is not unheard of for friends to point out to oblivious people how much they are obviously in love with someone. But when it comes to friends, people generally do not need to have it pointed out to them which of their acquaintances qualifies for the next level up. If you spend plenty of time with someone and enjoy doing so, then that person is clearly a friend.

However, for someone like Bob Belcher, who is not too introspective and who does not interact with too many people beyond his family and ...

'The Mindy Project' Recap: We Need To Talk About Annette

November 12th, 2014 11:06am EST
'The Mindy Project' Season 3 Episode 7 Recap: We Need To Talk Ab
"We Need To Talk About Annette” is one of Mindy’s finer episodes by far because it pits Mindy versus Annette against one another. Are the Mindy writers taking from the Annette well a little too much? Possibly. But pitting these two against each other doesn’t feel tired yet.

What’s interesting about this episode is that it sets itself up to be about some more soul searching for Mindy. Through Annette’s shoplifting crimes, maybe Mindy will learn stealing is bad. Instead we are reminded that Mindy is petty, but loyal and that she really doesn’t change. She’s the perfect foil for another woman...

After Winston’s shining moment in last week’s “Background Check,” did his good fortune continue by playing the Long Game with his neighbors?
