'Family Guy' Season 13 Premiere: 'The Simpsons Guy' Was A Little Weird

'Family Guy' Season 13 Premiere: 'The Simpsons Guy' Was A Little
That was... interesting.

The crossover episode between Family Guy and The Simpsons was an interesting idea that could have had a lot of promise - and before we get into it here, the episode was not bad by any means - it was just weird.

The writers at Family guy clearly made a huge effort to please The Simpsons` audience by proving on a number of occasions that The Simpsons has been a far more successful show for a lot longer than Family Guy. Even during the final 'fight scene' between Peter and Homer there was a direct reference to the awards literally being thrown in Peter's face by Hom...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Last season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" left us with so many pressing questions. Questions like:

How long will Jake Peralta stay undercover?

Will this be the start of a new recurring story arc?

Is it humanly possible for Holt to get any sterner?

And "Undercover," the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" season premiere, delivered a series of succinct answers. "Not long." "Yes, but not in the way you'd think." "NO."

First up is Peralta's undercover duty. Which, given its importance at the end of last season (it even spurned Jake into sharing his feelings with Santiago, for God's sake) seems lik...

8 Potential Breakout Stars In Television
You know them: the actor who's really good at what they do, but for whatever reason, doesn't get as much attention as they deserve. Maybe they're on a show that doesn't have a huge audience. Maybe they get less screen time than their costars. Maybe they ought to have won several awards by now and they've never even been nominated. But you love watching them every week, and you just wish everyone else would give them more respect already.

The 2014-2015 TV season has quite a few of those actors, several of whom are poised to break through to bigger story arcs and wider acclaim. Whether they'...

'New Girl' Season 4, Episode 2: Winston 'Toilet' Bishop

September 24th, 2014 10:01am EDT
New Girl
It looks like “New Girl” has decided to go all in with Winston Bishop as the odd man out. In fact, that being the odd man out is clearly in, because Winston is becoming more delightful every episode, and he was already the most delightful part of the show. To wit, nobody is shocked that he is the only cadet in the police academy struggling to socialize, and also the only one without a nickname. Though this does bother him, he is not upset enough to refrain from calling himself “Winnie the Bish” or using a euphemism like “make a caca.”

Typically when TV characters are ostracized from a l...

'The Mindy Project' Recap: We Finally Get To Meet Mrs. Castellano And It's Hysterical

'The Mindy Project' Recap: We Finally Get To Meet Mrs. Castellan
After two seasons of building up to it, The Mindy Project grants our greatest wish: not to see Mindy and Danny together as a couple but to finally meet Danny’s mom, Annette Castellano! And luckily for us, she’s played by Cheers veteran Rhea Perlman, who is simply fantastic as Danny's overbearing, tough and secretive mother.

The episode wastes almost no time into introducing us to the infamous Mrs. Castellano, stopping by to drop by TV Magazines for Danny’s apartment, who mistakenly (and with great racism) assumes Mindy is a cleaning lady. Mindy is horrified. Dear young Mindy is too self-ab...
