'2 Broke Girls' Season 4 Premiere Recap: The One With Kim Kardashian

October 28th, 2014 11:09am EDT
with KK
'Max' (Kat Dennings) and 'Caroline' (Beth Behrs) are back, and after four years, they’re still broke; working at the diner by day and working their cupcake window by night.

Just to remind us who we’re dealing with, the opening sequence has the business partners closing up when, who they think is their last customer comes up to rob them, threatening that he’s got a gun. Remember they live in Williamsburg, so it’s a hipster hold-up. Caroline stands behind a physically, mentally and existentially exhausted Max, who tells the would-be thief that he better not miss because, if she’s still stand...

'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 ...

'The Voice' Recap: Taylor Swift Joins For The Knockouts

'The Voice' Recap: Taylor Swift Joins For The Knockouts
Now that the Top 48 have been picked and cut in half (except for those eight steals), it's time to cut the field in half again (except for four more steals) on The Voice. Welcome to The Knockouts, which are back this season after having been replaced by a second cycle of Battles in season six. Apparently that change didn't go over well, because we're using the old formula: two artists each perform a song of their choice and only one moves on.

We can also say goodbye to the individual team advisors and hello to Taylor Swift, who becomes the go-to girl for all four coaches just as her new al...

'The Affair' Season 1 Episode 3 Review: 'Don't Wake Up'

'The Affair' Season 1 Episode 3 Review: 'Don't Wake Up'
For a show entitled The Affair, it sure is taking a long time getting to the affair part of the story, but I guess that has been the point all along. Even though the series’ premise suggests we’d be watching a titillating story about an illicit and potentially tragic love affair and nothing more, the show has delivered an intriguing and intricately built narrative that goes beyond its initial appeal. It is not just about two people falling into bed together; it is about how their unexpected attraction will leave a trail of consequences and lasting impressions on the lives of those around th...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Personal (And State) Lines

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Old Spice' - Crossing Persona
Now The Good Wife fans have seen Alicia kick off her campaign for Cook County State's Attorney, and see the roles reversed from the pilot six seasons ago. As if that wasn't one big image to put into our heads, Sunday's episode gave us another one: Alicia reclaiming Will Gardner's office. Oh, and Cary's in trouble again and Elsbeth is her typical awesomely out of left field self, but mostly, this one was about the chair.

Picking up the plot from last week's "Shiny Objects," Alicia's sexual discrimination case has now become a first-rate cluster since AUSA Josh Perotti (Kyle MacLachlan) is p...
