'Suits' Season 5 Premiere Recap -- Spoilers Ahead

June 25th, 2015 9:27am EDT
'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Denial' - The Fall Of Harvey Specter
If you thought the fourth season finale of Suits was rough, the season five premiere just shoved you down the rabbit hole. "Denial" is a perfectly titled look at Harvey Specter's life A.D. (After Donna), how Donna functions in Louis Litt's world, and how this show mixes drama like a great martini.

As everyone's been buzzing about ever since, season four ended with Donna leaving Harvey to go work for Louis. Harvey did not take this well. Harvey's still not taking this well six weeks later, as he's having visions of Jessica and Donna taking him to task. He relates these to his therapist, Dr....

'Big Brother' Premiere: Who Is The Most Likable?

June 25th, 2015 9:08am EDT
Big Brother
In the first of a two night premiere, Big Brother 17 is off to a running start. It introduces most of the stalwart Big Brother tropes, from contestants who try too hard to force a showmance to a plethora of unwanted twists. But it also only introduces half the cast, the only welcome rollover from Big Brother 16. The first episode illustrates the brimming potential of the cast and the overall season, as well as some iffy moments that could have us begging for the Big Brother days-of-yore.

Here are the best and worst moments of the first episode, plus a bonus likeability meter for the new ho...

Real Housewives Of New York City
"Shut the f#%k up!" Wow, that Bethenny sure knows how to take command of a room.

Before she does that though, we return to where we left off last week: at the launch party for Luann's fashion line.

Sonja asked Heather what she missed by not attending the pre-party: "Ramona ripped Kristen a new one." Always keepin' it classy.

Bethenny confronts Kristen and tells her that she has a sourpuss face and always looks like she's coming for her. They actually talk it out -- in a really loud way -- and actually sort of make up.

Sonja assesses Luann's clothing line, saying it's for the masses not ...

'Orphan Black' Season 3 Finale Resolves Issues And Creates New Ones

'Orphan Black' Season 3 Finale Recap: Ending An Uneven Season
Previously - This recap ended being hella long, so just click here.

Well, that was fast. Didn't the season just start? Season three of our favorite (and only) clone epic is over and out, and I'm left feeling a little deflated. I'll say it - it wasn't their best season. It had its high points and actually started to hit its stride halfway through. But if you've only got 10 episodes per season...

The Castor plot was, frankly, the first big misstep on Orphan Black's part. They gave it a good try but either the acting was off (I'll be diplomatic and say that I'm sure Ari Mullen is capable of ...

'The Bachelorette': Which Contestant Did Kaitlyn Have Sex With?

June 23rd, 2015 8:03am EDT
The Bachelorette
Can I say something? I totally predicted that Nick would be the one to um… "plow" Kaitlyn's "field." Saw that one coming the moment he stepped onto the show.

Ok, minor gloat moment aside. Shall we begin this week's The Bachelorette?

When we last left Kaitlyn and the gang, she was being berated by Ian for being "shallow" and "surface level" and just on The Bachelorette "to make out with a bunch of dudes on TV." That may be true (let's be honest here, people), but Ian still comes off like a massive tool.

He went to Princeton, you guys. He's here for love, not fart jokes and poop jokes and ...

Will 'True Detective' Season 2 Live Up To The First Season?

June 22nd, 2015 10:00am EDT
'True Detective' Season 2 Premiere: Ways 'The Western Book Of Th
True Detective’s first season was without a doubt a cultural phenomenon. Rust Cohle’s insane speeches were just as memorable as his flash forward facial hair. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson’s chemistry doubled, as did their career resurgence. But the lackluster ending marred some of the show’s overall shine. True Detective’s second season not only has a lot of live up to. It also has a lot to make up for.

While the show has made a valiant effort to fix some of its worst errors, it’s also lost some of its charm. Replacing the Southern Gothic setting is a familiar Los Angeles locati...

Starz 'Power' Recap: Is This The End Of Angie And James?

June 20th, 2015 10:00pm EDT
Starz Entertainment LLC
Try as they might to be a normal couple—jet setting to South Beach to escape New York’s polar vortex—Angela and Ghost’s work follows them like shadows. Tommy brings Kanan further into the drug operation creating more enemies than allies. And Tasha is a part of yet another love triangle.

“Like We’re Any Other Couple” is definitely a game changer of an episode, so far this season. And it’s only the third episode. Makes you wonder what’s in store for the next seven. “Power” fans are predicting Ghost or Tommy might be whacked. The season finale title--"Ghost is Dead"--doesn't sound hopeful. Ho...

This Week’s 'Strike Back' Flashback!

'Strike Back' Flashback: The Kosovo Hostage Crisis, Part 2
This week on Strike Back, Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott are still trying to get themselves and a handful of hostages out of Kosovo, while we debate if there's finally a woman that Scott won't try to sleep with. So many questions, so little time, and so many bullets. So many, many bullets.

It's the morning after everyone's been captured, and Scott's having a moment with Dana, as much as one can have when you're being held prisoner. But then he and Stonebridge decide to use their downtime to interrogate Allen, their purported link to Latif. Allen insists that he's a double agent, and ...

'Hannibal' Recap: Hannibal Gets A Very Vague Origin Story

June 19th, 2015 8:04am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Secondo": the main course. Either meat or fish (or plenty of both), and typically the heaviest part of any multi-course Italian meal.

Curious, isn't it? We're only three episodes into Hannibal's third season, yet we've already hit the main course. At least as far as the episode-title menu is concerned. You'd think, then, that "Secondo" would be a particularly critical outing for Hannibal (or have a certain meatiness, at least).

Not really. "Secondo" is the same measured, dreamy Hannibal we've seen all season. Not that that's a bad thing, of course.

And "Secondo" does build on a certain ...
