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...

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.

That ...

'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
kim
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...

Breaking Down The 'Justified' Series Finale: Who Lived And Who Died?

April 15th, 2015 8:22am EDT
'Justified' Series Finale Recap And Review: 'The Promise' - Who
After six seasons, one of television's best series came to an end on Tuesday. Justified wrapped up its near-perfect run with "The Promise," which delivered the bloody showdowns we've come to expect from this series while also taking near its entire fourth act to spend some final time with these unique, beloved characters and remind us that they're the reason we kept coming back to Harlan for years on end. It was everything that it should've been and then some.

Picking up exactly where last week's episode left off, Raylan is in the process of being detained thanks to the BOLO that AUSA Vasq...

'Justified,' TV's Equivalent Of A Great American Novel

April 14th, 2015 12:05pm EDT
Saying Goodbye To 'Justified': Is This TV's Great American Novel
If you're a reader, you've probably heard the expression "Great American Novel." It refers to a fictional work that displays the culture of the United States at a specific time, and figuratively, is the term for the greatest American book ever written.

As the last episode of FX's Justified is on the horizon, it becomes apparent that the Timothy Olyphant led series could be TV's equivalent of the Great American Novel, both literally and figuratively.

One needs only to look to its ultimate source: Elmore Leonard, one of the great authors in American history. His writing could never be compa...
