'Mulaney' Recap: John Mulaney, 3'8" And Reading For Kevin

'Mulaney' Season 1, Episode 8 Recap: John Mulaney, 3'8" And Read
It has been 3 weeks since the last new episode of “Mulaney,” and that time has only managed to strip away from whatever urgency this show had. “It’s a Wonderful Home Alone” just did not feel like a story that needed to be told. Instead, it felt like “Mulaney” was just treading water, which is something a veteran show that has already built up plenty of goodwill can get away with, but it is not what a freshman sitcom that is still struggling to find its identity should be doing 8 episodes into its run.

While “Mulaney” had not exactly become good recently, it had gotten consistently intere...

'Homeland' Season Finale: Is That All There Is?

'Homeland' Season Finale Recap: Is That All There Is?
Before I begin with my last recap for Homeland season 4 (*sob*), I’d like to give some shout-outs. Firstly, thanks to Starpulse for letting me write these inane recaps. Thanks to the three of you who read these recaps (especially my girls Erin and Suzie) and the ones who Tweet with me every Sunday night. Big thanks to Homeland actor Maury Sterling (Max rules!) who has Tweeted with me and the other fans all season long during every episode. It was a Hollywood-adjacent type thrill for me when he would like or re-tweet. His wife is real nice, too. Ok, on to the end.

Previously - POTUS called ...

SNL Recap: Amy Adams & One Direction

December 21st, 2014 8:30pm EST
Amy Adams and One Direction on SNL
The 2014 Christmas episode of "Saturday Night Live" took most of its inspiration from the holiday season, as "SNL" Christmas episodes are wont to do. Sometimes that resulted in sticking too close to tradition, while other times that tradition was rebelled against, resulting in memorably experimental Christmas sketches. It was one of those episodes where you take the good and you take the bad. In her second outing, Amy Adams was the sort of host who slotted in naturally to whatever role she was given without overshadowing the cast. Musical guest One Direction did what they do, surely pleasin...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Diva' - Stopping The Music

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Diva' - Stopping Th
Transporter: The Series gets a little bit glamorous this week, as Frank Martin has the job of protecting a celebrity that other folks would rather see deceased. As his assignments go, this one is fairly rote, and so it's not surprising that the script is, too.

But if that's not surprising, neither are the qualities which redeem "Diva," because they're the same ones that have always made this series great: first-rate fight choreography and the ability of Chris Vance to convey things that we're pretty sure weren't scripted.

Frank is in Prague, because for whatever reason he's stuck handling...

'White Collar' Series Finale: 'Au Revoir' - The Big Goodbye

'White Collar' Series Finale Recap And Review: 'Au Revoir' - The
After six seasons and countless capers, USA's White Collar draws to a close with an episode appropriately titled. Definitively closing the book on the partnership of Neal Caffrey and Peter Burke, "Au Revoir" might divide some fans who are upset about its final act, but ultimately delivers everything we've come to expect from one of television's classiest and most fun shows.

We open exactly where we left off last week, with Neal trying to convince Woodford (Gavin Lee) to accept Peter as the newest member of the Pink Panthers. Keller's (Ross McCall) reaction to this development is awesome: "...

American Horror Story Freak Show: 5 Weirdest Moments From 'Orphans'

American Horror Story Freak Show Recap: 5 Weirdest Moments From
Well, that was a weird waste of an hour. No Dandy. Barely even inching forward in the plot. An episode completely devoted to a character that’s spent two seasons in the background, barely relevant. Yet, “Orphans” managed to be one of the strangest and strangely emotional episodes of this season. Here are the 5 weirdest moments from a very bizarre episode:

Elsa and Pepper’s Previously Unmentioned Relationship

In an attempt to humanize a character that calls her closest companions her “monsters,” “Orphans” creates a backstory for Pepper and Elsa that paints them as closer than ever formerly...

'The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Recap: Star Sighting

December 17th, 2014 9:33am EST
Yo
Aside from a very brief moment when we see Brandi at her "job" as a podcast host, let's call this "the daughters" episode. It was not necessarily that interesting, but it covers the mother gamut of denial, exasperation, substitution and pride.

Yolanda literally has to ride out her daughter Bella's DUI until she can get off Kyle's yacht and get on a plane home. I thought when she got there we'd see her counseling Bella or yelling at her or taking her to her court date, but what we got was her confessional segment explaining away Bella's behavior as a good, smart girl who had a momentary la...

'The Affair' Review: 'I Don't Want This Life'

December 16th, 2014 2:32pm EST
The Affari: Ruth Wilson and Dominic West
Episode 9 takes The Affair into full-blown, soap opera, melodrama territory and I don’t completely hate it. It has definitely taken a significant turn with the mounting drama surrounding these characters especially in these last few episodes. What began as a contemplative examination of human behavior has evolved into an intensely distraught and messy narrative with various threads and characters intertwining. While it may seem like a drastic shift, it doesn’t all feel out of the realm of possibilities. Let’s not forget that the series opened with an unknown crime story, a kid faking a suic...
