‘Empire’ Recap: The Blame Game

11/26/2015 11:34am EST
This “Empire” episode couldn’t have come at a perfect time. Thanksgiving, when families are prepping the turkey and feisty comebacks for the most diss-worthy relatives (ASIDE: Instagram has a whole shade guide under hashtag #thanksgivingclapback Handle with caution.) they’re forced to share it with.

Just as Cookie is forced into one half of a rescue squad—Candace (Vivica Fox) is the other—to search for little sis Carol in Philly. Judging by Cookie’s Elmo red mink and Candace’s heaving breasts it's likely Carol will find them before they find her. Which wouldn’t be bad considering they look...

'Scream Queens': A Rundown From 'Thanksgiving'

11/25/2015 9:21am EST
'Scream Queens' Recap: 'Thanksgiving,' Accusations, And Bloodlin
Last week was such a tease. Nearly everything we were promised from “Thanksgiving” ended up cut in favor of a lot of whodunit chatter. There was no Grace and Zayday trip to the house of the chainsaw loving grandma. Chad’s house wasn’t remotely haunted like he described. We barely saw anything of Chanel #3’s mom who allegedly had an affair with Charles Manson. Only a few moments were devoted to the twisted Thanksgiving shenanigans of Gigi and the last remaining Red Devil. Overall it was a disappointment. Although there were many revelations and plenty of funny moments, it didn’t live up to t...

What We Learned From The 'Blindspot' Fall Finale

What We Learned From 'Blindspot': Don't Walk Alone At Night
Blindspot's Jane Doe is normally a pretty smart character, but in Monday's fall finale "Evil Handmade Instrument," she made a not so smart decision that wound up almost getting her killed.

Jane (Jaimie Alexander) ditched her FBI security detail so that she could make a visit to Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) and surprise him with a kiss. But, as he chastised her beforehand, it wasn't a good idea for her to be without someone keeping an eye on her.

Especially not as Jane walked away from the apartment on her own - and within moments, was nabbed by CIA thugs and thrown into the back of another...

'The Walking Dead' Review: Awards For 'Heads Up'

11/23/2015 8:31am EST
'The Walking Dead' Recap: Noteworthy Award Moments From 'Heads U
“Heads Up” is one of the better episodes from the 6th season. It has a nice mixture of characters, without ever making the mistake of pretending to care about the Alexandrians on their own. It finally ended the farce of a certain “death” while marching the story forward a bit more. Now if only we could put an end to the constant speeches that make up every episode these days.

Here are the character and scene awards for “Heads Up:”

Least Surprising Moment: Glenn’s Alive

Duh. While it looks like he might not be the voice on the radio from the end of the last episode, he hid under the dumps...

Jenna Coleman's Final 'Doctor Who' Airs - What Did You Think Of
Fans have known that Jenna Coleman would be leaving her starring role on Doctor Who since her departure was announced earlier this year, but Coleman's official exit from the show happened when her last episode was screened Saturday night.

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen Saturday's episode of Doctor Who, do not continue reading. This article contains major spoilers.

In "Face the Raven," Coleman's companion Clara Oswald and The Doctor (Peter Capaldi) were contacted by an old friend, Rigsy (Joivan Wade, first seen in last season's "Flatline"). He needed their help with a mysterious tatto...

'Saturday Night Live' Season 41, Episode 6 Recap: Matthew McConaughey & Adele

11/22/2015 3:30pm EST
SNL Matthew McConaughey Adele
Matthew McConaughey has two different, but ultimately complementary reputations.

The first is of the ultimate chill dude. Up until about four years ago, that translated into meaning he would rather play the bongos naked than get down to work.

But now, in a post-McConaissance world, he is known more for his commitment to challenging and unusual roles.

That mix of mellow and focused is perfect for an “SNL” host, and it may very well be enough to overcome any bad memories from his unforgettable first stint in 2003.

Musical guest Adele, meanwhile, had an excellent “SNL” debut, and the only ...

What We Learned From 'The Player' Last Night

11/20/2015 9:19am EST
What We Learned From 'The Player': Always Value Your Friends
The Player signed off on Thursday night, but not before it had one more lesson to impart to the audience: that friendship is a difficult thing sometimes and if you're smart, you'll never forget the value of your friends.

The bond between Alex Kane (Philip Winchester) and his longtime best friend Cal Brown (Damon Gupton) was one of the aspects of the show that didn't get explored enough, but it was front and center in "Tell."

Cal, pressured by FBI agent Rose Nolan (KaDee Strickland) into thinking he was protecting Alex, agreed to an illegal and unethical interrogation of Cassandra King (Ch...

'The Middle' Recap: The Hecks Postpone Thanksgiving

11/19/2015 10:39am EST
The Middle
Most sitcoms aim their highest at the holiday; few are as consistently successful at it as “The Middle.” While every day for the Hecks is usually pretty much like the day before (i.e., not the most domestically harmonious), something unusually heartwarming tends to happen on their holidays out of sheer force of will. But this year, work and other engagements get in the way of family time, and little effort is made to counteract that. So they float Thanksgiving off to June 12. They disperse, each spending the day mostly on their own, and they are perfectly okay with that … or are they?

'Empire' Recap: Can You Believe [SPOILER] Is Having A Lyon Baby?
Just when I was about to hit the snooze button on this season of “Empire” Lee Daniels rang the alarm loud enough for us all to take notice. Only it sounds more like a boxing bell because everyone’s got beef in “My Bad Parts.”

Starting with Lucious, who declares war on Hakeem by using Freda Gatz. With his ego at stake, Hakeem falls right into a rap battle trap. The rap battle—Team Hakeem vs. Team Freda. And Cookie is none too pleased it’s overshadowing her cookout. With boy toy Laz by her side she wags her finger in disapproval at Hakeem’s bold move. Because if he fails so does Lyon Dynasty...
