'Sleepy Hollow' Review: 10 Awesome Moments From 'And The Abyss Gazes Back'

October 28th, 2014 9:23am EDT
Sleepy Hollow
Sleepy Hollow really is moving at a snail’s pace this year. Season one was a treat, with its rare shortened season, where every episode felt like it had a purpose for the overall show. Each episode this season has felt like its inching towards something bigger, but the pacing is so off that it’s easy to feel impatient for the meat of the season. Henry, the big ol’ baddie of war, is literally walking around town masquerading as a lawyer, sending new villains at Ichabod and Abbie every week, unchecked. It makes our protagonists look reactive when they should be active. Really, the show needs ...

Fall TV Report Card: Grading 'The Affair,' 'black-ish,' 'Gotham'
The first few weeks of the television season are behind us, and like the fall leaves, this new crop of shows have had a few episodes to show their true colors. The 2014-15 season has only seen one cancellation, which is a refresher indicator of the quality of freshman programs. I'm here to issue grades to the good, the bad and the 'meh' for this year's new shows, including "The Affair," "black-ish," "Gotham" and more...

Anna Gunn On 'Gracepoint': 'It's Quite Hard To Drop It Sometimes
Anna Gunn knows good drama; she starred on HBO's Deadwood and recently won an Emmy for her work on AMC's Breaking Bad. Yet her starring role on FOX's Gracepoint is more than just good drama. Anna is impressive in the role of Ellie Miller, the steady and opposite to David Tennant's aggressive Emmett Carver as they investigate a child's murder.

And for the actress, it was something more than just another complex character. Anna spoke with us last week about her thorough preparation for her Gracepoint duties and how the series was slightly hard for her to shake.

'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: 8 Awesome Moments from 'The Weeping Lady'
“The Weeping Lady” was a massive improvement on last week’s episode. It had all the elements that Sleepy Hollow the engaging piece of entertainment that it is: a terrifying and well-crafted villain, revelations about Ichabod’s past, plenty of meaningful moments in the Ichabod/Abbie partnership, and sprinkles of time travel-related humor throughout. This episode moved forward the plot as Katrina’s place in Moloch’s plan is revealed and Henry gets fleshed out a bit more. Here are 8 of the top moments from “The Weeping Lady:”

'Mulaney' Season 1, Episode 3 Review: Large, Shaky Cursive

October 20th, 2014 10:59am EDT
The aim of a "Mulaney" episode appears to be establishing a theme in John Mulaney’s stand-up and then acting out scenarios that represent that theme. The routine here is about how Halloween is kind of funny and different from other holidays. There was some strong material here, notably how horror movie villains have become scarier and less wealthy and how brown and tan food and clothing denotes Thanksgiving as the least sexy holiday. But there was not much of a story connected to this material, just a series of loosely connected jokes. Thus, instead of saying something significant about...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Season 2, Episode 4 Recap: Halloween Wars

October 20th, 2014 10:34am EDT
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Last October, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" put out an episode called "Halloween." Last night, the show put out "Halloween II."

And in trying to sequelize the insane, perfect payoff that was "Halloween," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" had one job: make things bigger than they were last year. "Halloween II" doesn't quite make it that far, but it's still a screamingly funny half-hour of TV, so it's hard to complain.

Unless one of your complaints is about Boyle not reviving the Mario Batali costume from last year.

Last year, Jake and Captain Holt placed a bet- if Jake can steal the Captain's medal of valor f...

'Red Band Society' Episode 5 Recap: 'So Tell Me What You Want, W
Despite being in a coma, Charlie is probably the most important character on Red Band Society. He acts as the narrator for the series. And he's also the common denominator between many of the patients and staff. They've either helped, shared a room with, or got a telepathic visit from Charlie. Last night's episode of Red Band Society revealed Charlie's backstory.

The History of Charlie

Several months ago, at a party with his parents, Charlie overdosed on sweets. On the way home, he became sick. His dad, Nick, told him to take off his seatbelt and lie down. He turned around to help Charl...

'The Mindy Project' Season 3 Episode 5 Recap: Shonda Rhimes Is The Reigning Beer Pong Champion

'The Mindy Project' Season 3 Episode 5 Recap: Shonda Rhimes Is T
After last week’s semi-disapointing and pretty groundbreaking episode, we get a more classic episode for this rocky season. I’ve talked about how the show was getting redundant in its set-ups — a Danny and Mindy A-plot followed by whatever Peter and (cast member who is probably Morgan) are doing — and tonight gladly switches up a bit of the formula.

Yes, Mindy has put the practice in jeopardy by showing up extremely late to a hospital meeting and having her “Fancy” ringtone insult Jean, the HBIC. The practice is given the graveyard shift for their C-sections at the hospital, reminding all ...

'New Girl' Season 4, Episode 5 Review: A Bowl of Jelly

October 15th, 2014 10:08am EDT
New Girl
The practice of cord cutting has become a recognizably frequent practice of the 21st century, so where does “New Girl” get off thinking that it can make a sitcom episode in 2014 about installing a landline telephone? As convenient as cell phones have become, there are still geographical spots where coverage is spotty. Coverage can even be weirdly arranged such that only one room of an apartment gets decent reception. Such was the case of the “New Girl” episode “Landline,” an example of a sitcom defiantly declaring that it shall have a plotline that made sense 20 years ago.

The idea that...
