'Strike Back' Flashback Recap

'Strike Back' Flashback: Picking Up The Pieces, Part 2
In the conclusion to Strike Back's South African hacker arc, "Cinemax Season 1, Episode 4," everyone is left wondering about the fate of Damien Scott. Little do we know that it's not the new guy we should be worried about, as this is the episode that would put the audience on notice that this show would never be safe.

When we left off last episode, Scott was in a world of hurt at the hands of former IRA member Daniel Connelly (a superb Liam Cunningham) after impulsively making the decision to sub in for a hacker that Stonebridge had no choice but to shoot. The episode ended with Section 20...

Rutledge And George Try To Preserve Nicole's 1964 Ford F100 Pickup

'Lost In Transmission' Recap: 'Fire In The Hole'
Tonight's episode of Lost in Transmission has nothing to do with the Elmore Leonard short story called "Fire in the Hole." Really, it's more about Rutledge and George trying not to light themselves on fire.

The dynamic duo are trying to preserve Nicole's 1964 Ford F100 pickup truck that might just burn either of them before they can give it to her son Cameron. For once, George likes the choice; he's even enthusiastic about it, at least until he sees the F100's current sad state. It's got years of rust, a lizard under the hood, and a hole in the bed large enough to fit Rutledge. Oh, and it ...

You Do Not Want To Break 'Wayward Pines' Rules

'Wayward Pines' Recap: 'Do Not Discuss The Past'
Wayward Pines' series premiere had a bit of a mysterious and steady build up. We became all too confident that this would be one of those shows where you didn't really learn anything until close to the finale. We were wrong.

The second episode of Wayward Pines gave a full view of this town. We may not know all its secrets, yet, but they're starting too unfold in a rapid pace. Last night's episode not only gave us some major town rules, but it showed the punishment for those who break them. You definitely do not want to break Wayward Pines' rules.

As You Were:

Survivor : Worlds Apart Finale – The Only Choice Was Mike
Jeff Probst greets us, live from Los Angeles, where he, the Blue, White and No Collar Survivors, a studio audience, and 27 people competing to be on the next Survivor series, are about to watch the finale AND reunion episode of the current series.

'Supernatural' Season 10 Comes To An End

May 21st, 2015 10:45am EDT
'Supernatural' Season 10 Finale
The road so far during this season of “Supernatural,” particularly with the Mark of Cain plot, has been riddled with apocalyptic potholes, crippling angst, muddled plots and slicks with blood. The season 10 finale, “Brother’s Keeper” flirts with the impossible—fratricide!!!—and cleans up the often problematic “Mark Of Cain” storyline, did it live up to the palpable expectactions? Grab your favorite reaping scythe, and let’s dive in, shall we?

There’s nothing that amuses me more than Sam Winchester, crazed by fraternal desperation. “Brother’s Keeper” opens with that very Sam making bull...

'The Flash' Has Epic First Season And Finale

'The Flash' Finale Recap: Barry's First Season Ends With Tears A
Well, that was amazing.

"The Flash" has been solid all season, but last night's season finale, "Fast Enough," secured it: "The Flash" is one of the most brilliant things on TV right now. At least as far as comic book shows are concerned (although Barry and Matt Murdock will have to duke it out to determine who gets the official Top Comic Show slot).

"Rogue Air" seemingly took care of our climactic Flash-on-Reverse-Flash fight last week (although not really), so "Fast Enough" put all its energy into one idea: Barry's Choice.

Barry finally has the ability to go back in time and save his mo...

New 'Bachelorette' Chosen, Was It Britt or Kaitlyn?

May 20th, 2015 10:14am EDT
'The Bachelorette' Recap: Kaitlyn Bristowe Is Crowned Bacheloret
We ended Monday's half of "The Bachelorette's" season premiere on a big dumb cliffhanger. Chris Harrison was about to reveal the next Bachelorette. But he didn't. Because cliffhangers.

The second of two "Bachelorette" premieres cuts right to the chase: who's getting that tearful limo ride back to normal human civilization - Britt or Kaitlyn?

It's actually pretty tactful. Chris approaches Britt. He informs her that her horde of potential husbands has chosen Kaitlyn, not her (smart choice, husband horde). She's upset, but she accepts her fate. Once again, an ABC intern is called to sop up t...

'Community' Recap: 'Modern Espionage'

May 20th, 2015 9:11am EDT
Community
“Do you try to evolve, or do you try to know who you are?” Season 1 ended with Jeff facing this dilemma. As the years have gone on, this issue has come to define his show as a whole. Season 6 has brought this conflict to a head. Do you try to evolve beyond paintball, or do you try to know who you are and recapture your original homage episode glory?

By beginning “Modern Espionage” with a thrilling cold opening that captured the foreboding vibe of spy cinema, the value of continuing with old tricks appeared to be quite high. With acrobatic car stunts and mysterious off-camera dialogue, Rob ...
