'Mulaney' Season 1, Episode 3 Review: Large, Shaky Cursive

October 20th, 2014 10:59am EDT
Mulaney
The aim of a "Mulaney" episode appears to be establishing a theme in John Mulaney’s stand-up and then acting out scenarios that represent that theme. The routine here is about how Halloween is kind of funny and different from other holidays. There was some strong material here, notably how horror movie villains have become scarier and less wealthy and how brown and tan food and clothing denotes Thanksgiving as the least sexy holiday. But there was not much of a story connected to this material, just a series of loosely connected jokes. Thus, instead of saying something significant about...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Season 2, Episode 4 Recap: Halloween Wars

October 20th, 2014 10:34am EDT
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Last October, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" put out an episode called "Halloween." Last night, the show put out "Halloween II."

And in trying to sequelize the insane, perfect payoff that was "Halloween," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" had one job: make things bigger than they were last year. "Halloween II" doesn't quite make it that far, but it's still a screamingly funny half-hour of TV, so it's hard to complain.

Unless one of your complaints is about Boyle not reviving the Mario Batali costume from last year.

Last year, Jake and Captain Holt placed a bet- if Jake can steal the Captain's medal of valor f...

'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' Season 6 Finale Recap:

Women
"It's a different day and everything's changed." Cousin Kathy's words refer to The Guidices' sentencing, but can easily describe the whole lot of them.

Although Dina's Ladybug Charity is the main focus of the episode, everyone's life goes through some sort of transformation: Melissa and Joe Gorga break ground for their next McMansion, which is going to be even bigger and more garish then their present abode; and Amber cut her hair for cancer. She's been growing it for five years, and now will donate the locks to make a wig for a child.

The one thing that hasn't changed is that Teresa Apre...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Shiny Objects' - Hackers, Penguins And Endorsements

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Shiny Objects' - Hackers, Pen
With it having been established that Alicia will run for Cook County State's Attorney, it's time for The Good Wife to get her back into the courtroom. The show does that with a flourish, bringing back some familiar faces to give her some stiff competition, while Diane tries to deal when a hacker gets into the Florrick/Agos/Lockhart computers and the political process drives another wedge into the Florrick marriage.

Elsbeth Tascioni (Carrie Preston) is back and still as quirky as ever, which is driving her co-counsel Rayna Hecht (Jill Hennessy) a little crazy. Especially when the company t...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: The 10 Most Badass Moments from 'Strangers'

'The Walking Dead' Recap: The 10 Most Badass Moments from 'Stran
“Strangers” was a much quieter episode than the season 5 premiere, but that didn’t make it any less bonkers. In fact, the quiet moments only made every moment more tension-filled. Every time the characters slow-mo walked through the covered woods, there was an ominous feeling following them with each step. As Season 4 taught us, there’s no safety, not even for a minute. And last week’s episode left a couple of hanging threads that come back to haunt our survivors in a major way.

Here are 10 of the most badass moments from “Strangers:”

Reunion Conversations and Forgiveness

The end of “No ...

Previously - Quinn tried to leave the CIA but you don’t leave the CIA unless Carrie says you can leave the CIA. Fara and Max are working with Carrie to acquire Aayan as an asset. And Quinn is SSSSOOOOO in love with Carrie, It’s, like, totally obvious. Jenn saw him, like, STALKER-LEVEL staring at her in Trig. It was totally pathetic. He’s kinda cute, though, if you don’t mind the PTSD stare.

How far is too far when it comes to your country? Is there such a thing? It doesn't look like it for Carrie Mathison. She used her body in service to her cause this episode, and it didn't require clothe...

David Letterman Cue-Card Employee Fired For Brawl With Writer
The "Late Show With David Letterman" is one crew member short after an employee reportedly attacked one of the show's writers earlier this month.

Tony Mendez, who held cue cards, was fired after brawling with Emmy-nominated writer Bill Scheft on set on Oct. 9.

Mendez explained his side of the situation to the New York Post, saying: "We (Letterman and Mendez) tell each other 'F**k you' and 'Hey a**hole.' He (Letterman) doesn't do that with anybody - but he feels comfortable with me... I realized that this is what Bill was doing.

"He was trying to create a wedge between us so Dave would th...

7 Bold Predictions For Season 5 Of 'The Walking Dead'
After four seasons of rivalries, tension, shocking death, and tons of reanimated dead people wandering around, it’s still a wonder that The Walking Dead can still manage to surprise us week after week. Throughout the haitus many viewers believed that our protagonists would be stuck in Terminus for ages, with the much wanted reunions unbearably delayed. But the season opener “No Sanctuary” exceeded all expectations by putting a season’s worth of activity in one episode.

Will the 5th season continue to surprise us with left-field revelations and gut-wrenching twists? Here are a few bold pred...
