'Transporter: The Series' Recap: 'Cherchez La Femme' - A Stunning Season Finale

November 23rd, 2014 9:08am EST
Transporter: The Series
You know how season finales always want to be big, bad and better than ever? Transporter: The Series is all that and then some as it finishes out its first cycle. It delivers the spectacle of a season ender - including some of the finest action to be broadcast on television - and underneath that there's equally brilliant acting. It all comes together almost perfectly in the best finale you could ask for.

Frank's last package is an upstart hacker who goes by the street name Jet (played by Chelsea Hobbs); she's run off on her client, and he's been hired to retrieve her. As he completes deliv...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap: 'Give The Guy A Hand' - Somebody's Last Laugh

November 23rd, 2014 9:01am EST
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Give The Guy A Hand
Transporter: The Series is closing in on its destination, and it's finishing up the season almost exactly as it began the run: by mixing up a cocktail somewhere between nerve-wracking and not so serious. With "Give the Guy a Hand," things are more for laughs and there isn't any real shock value unless you haven't seen a literal hand before. But there's the usual amount of first-class fights and a reminder that certain geographic locations may be hazardous to your health.

The last time Frank Martin was in Toronto, there was a fight and then a hockey game broke out. After this, maybe he shou...

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Who Killed Sam?

November 21st, 2014 11:36am EST
How to Get Away with Murder
Who killed Sam? Well, that’s a complicated question. Physically, it’s Michaela who injures him on the staircase. After a Scream like resurgence, it’s Wes who bashes a trophy over his head when he tries to strangle Rebecca (which isn’t even in murder; it’s justifiable homicide). However, it’s the group that thinks they all killed him—which is absolutely ludicrous—but in the end they all might as well have since they burn his body and chop it up into little pieces, callously throwing it in a Philly dumpster.

And then, in the final moments of an episode that basically just rehashes (in order)...

'Scandal': 5 Best Moments From 'Where The Sun Don't Shine'

'Scandal' Review: 5 Best Moments From 'Where The Sun Don't Shine
ABC’s winter finales are usually bonkers and Scandal usually epitomizes that. For the most part, “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” was a calmer episode than we’re used to, but the ending really ramped things up. Here are the top 5 moments from the episode:

Killing B613

It’s almost as if Scandal heard our prayers. The B613 conspiracy is by far the weakest part of the show. It weighed down last season and its continual mentions this year have elicited quite a few groans. But in “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” the show is trying to rectify that problem by killing off the members of B613. Unfortunately...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: 5 OMG Moments From 'Fade Into Yo
They could write a book on Kai's complicated family history on The Vampire Diaries. We learned about Kai's ruthless quest for power. However, The Vampire Diaries' proved that all evil leads back to bad parenting. We also learned that the Gemini coven is basically the Originals family, but with witches. The Vampire Diaries season 6 episode 8, "Fade Into You," had so many OMG moments. Here are the biggest ones:

1. It's All Relative

In 1994, he killed four of his siblings. Three of them survived: Jo, Liv, and Luke. Kai killed the other four as punishment for his father's hatred of him being ...

'The Middle' Recap: Thanksgiving For Losers

November 20th, 2014 10:40am EST
The Middle - Thanksgiving VI
This may have been the most depressing episode of the “The Middle” ever. That is no small feat for a show that has made no effort to hide the Heck family’s penny-pinching reality and daily stresses. Usually each episode will end on an at least relatively positive note to leaven that reality. “Thanksgiving VI” was not depressing because it forewent that positive ending. It was there, but it felt more momentary than ever before. The root causes of the doldrums were still taking their toll.

The good news is that despite how thorough all the Hecks’ problems are, they probably are not part...

'Law & Order SVU': Ray Rice Themed Episode: No More

'Law & Order SVU' Recap: Ray Rice Themed Episode: No More
Has everyone recovered from last week’s “Chicago Crossover” episodes? I hope so because it’s back to “SVU’s” regularly scheduled headline-swiping episodes.

In “SVU’s” 9th episode “Spousal Privilege,” the detectives tackle (no pun intended) a pro-footballer that may be abusing his girlfriend. The whole episode is pretty vague in terms of how often the abuse occurs, mainly because the baby mama Paula (Meagan Good) refuses to admit it’s happening, until she doesn’t have a choice.

An online image-infused bulletin board, you know the one that posted the celebs leaked nude pics, posted security...

'Arrow': 10 Heart-Wrenching Moments From 'Draw Back Your Bow'

November 20th, 2014 10:06am EST
Arrow
Do we have an overarching storyline for this season of "Arrow" yet? Season one was Robert Queen's little black book and the Dark Archer, while season two was Slade Wilson's revenge. Season three seems like it'll hinge on Sara's murder in the same way, except that story seems to have faltered recently.

Roy's innocent (well, innocent of Sara's murder, anyway), and the case has gone cold. We're closing in on the season's halfway point- things should hopefully pick up soon, and we'll see just what "Arrow" has planned for the long haul.

But for now, a villain-of-the-week story like "Draw Back...
