Recap: 'Supernatural' Gears Up For Finale

April 16th, 2015 10:55am EDT
Supernatural
There are a three surefire ways to tell that “Supernatural” is gearing up for an epically devastating season finale. First, Sam and Dean Winchester are hopeful, happy and/or make plans for the future. Second, the characters find their voices and reveal their truths. Finally, there seems to be a promising break in the season’s overarching affliction. “Book Of The Damned” checked each one of these boxes with an suspenseful, emotional installment that already has me mentally preparing myself for a gutting season finale.

Grab your sarong or speedo and let’s dive in, shall we?

Last Night's 'Arrow' Was Everything A Fan Could Have Wanted

April 16th, 2015 10:16am EDT
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Bone-Crunching Moments From 'Broken Arrow'
If at any point this season, you've felt "Arrow" wasn't quite on its usual game (maybe a little slow, maybe a little unfocused), "Broken Arrow" was everything an "Arrow" fan could have wanted.

This was a devastating, incredible, ridiculously kick-ass return to form. "Broken Arrow" had metahumans. "Broken Arrow" had two of the best fight sequences "Arrow" has ever done. "Broken Arrow" had like, half the cast getting stabbed out of nowhere.

And "Broken Arrow" said goodbye to an old "Arrow" favorite. Sad stuff. All of which we'll get to in this week's countdown.

A New Conflict Emerges In 'The Middle'

April 16th, 2015 9:52am EDT
The Middle
Every once in a while, TV shows that are not heavily serialized will have episodes that seem like they came out of nowhere. A new conflict or new characteristic has suddenly emerged in The Middle, without any buildup or foreshadowing in previous episodes, but everyone on the show acts like this has been the new normal for some time. In that vein was “Food Courting,” in which each of the Heck children found themselves navigating a new role. For Axl and Sue, the suddenness of their situations made sense and were solid explorations of the signposts on the path to adulthood. Brick’s new pos...

One 'Idol' Goes Home While Connick Jr. And Alexander Have Face Off

April 16th, 2015 9:21am EDT
'American Idol' Recap: Harry Connick Jr. And Quentin Alexander C
Last night, The Top 7 (who became six) American Idols sang American Classics. The audience finally got to pick what songs the contestants sang. The results were the best night of American Idol 2015 performances. Everyone really showed their versatility and heart.

The night wasn't completely filled with great performances, because things got intense. Last night's results led to one of the most awkward moments on Idol ever (see video below in article). Quentin Alexander got very emotional over the possibility of Joey Cook or Rayvon Owens leaving. After being prompt by Ryan Seacrest, he expre...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Breaks Down May's Past

April 15th, 2015 11:15am EDT
'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: 'Melinda' Reveals May's Backstor
"Melinda" is something "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" has been building to since it first began- the real reason why May's so surly and so hesitant to get out into the field and kick plenty of ass. Also, why she's such a non-fan of her nickname "The Cavalry."

Even with the monumental expectations "Agents" has been setting for this reveal (and, let's face it- that you could kinda figure out the twist a few minutes before it happened), May's origin story didn't disappoint. At all.

This needed to be something big and traumatic, and it was suitably horrifying. Because every time someone affectionate...

'Community' Recap: Greendale Gets Hacked

April 15th, 2015 10:58am EDT
Community- Basic Email Security
“Community” does not usually take too much inspiration from real world headlines in the vein of a “Law & Order”-style procedural. It instead tends to ape and play around with pop culture. But recent hacking scandals have converged with media such that for “Community” it is right at home, almost a little too close to home. This is a show produced by Sony, the victim of one of the largest-scale hacks ever. A community college does not have the same reach as a worldwide media conglomerate, but it still has a significant virtual ecosystem that can be exploited, and so it was with Greendale....

The New York housewives bring the crazy out to Long Island's East End.

Ramona and Dorinda head to Ramona's East Hampton spread. Meanwhile, Heather and Carole are on the way to Sag Harbor to Luann's new house. First though, they make a pitstop at Lu's old place where The Countess is selling off her possessions, which is bittersweet.

Dorinda and Ramona show up at the estate sale as well and Ramona tells The Countess she owes her a major apology. Luann agrees to forgive, but will never forget the vicious remarks Ramona made to her when she was going through her divorce from the Count.

'The Flash' All Star Team Up Doesn’t Disappoint

April 15th, 2015 9:57am EDT
'The Flash' Recap: 'All Star Team Up' Is Another Classic CW Cros
No lie- we've been eagerly anticipating this "The Flash"/"Arrow" team-up ever since it was announced (and ever since the "Flash vs Arrow" blew doors down last December). And just like every episode of "The Flash," ever (this is an extremely consistently written show), it didn't disappoint.

"All Star Team Up" wasn't a full-on crossover- Ray and Felicity were our only two imports last night (although previews tell us that Laurel and Cisco will meet and Barry/Oliver will be a team once more before the season's over).

But the Ray/Felicity-only thing was in "The Flash's" best interest. As Feli...

'RHOBH' Reunion Part 3: Kim And Kyle Go At It

April 15th, 2015 9:33am EDT

The Clampetts brought more class to Beverly Hills than these people.

After a rather boring Q&A where it was "revealed" that Lisa R. dropped the F-bomb more than any other of the BH housewives, and that Brandi is propositioned more times than not by guys who are either too old or too young, things got cooking.

Kim whipped out her smartphone and read three threatening text messages ("I'm going to eff you up," etc.) sent to her by Lisa R. To combat the attack -- since there were no real excuses she could make to get off the hook -- Rinna owned her social media transgression and started to cr...

'The Voice' Recap: 'Top 12 Eliminations' - Adam Breaks A Streak
America is definitely not voting the way that it used to when it comes to this season of NBC's The Voice. On Tuesday night, the results of voting to decide who moved into the Top 10 were revealed, and they signaled that times are changing in the history of TV's top singing competition.

Plus, the Twitter Instant Save started up again, season 8 Team Christina advisor Nick Jonas popped by to perform his latest single, and there were some more group performances, this team with the coaches joining their artists for takes on a couple of classics.

But what you really want to know is who went ho...
