'Real Houswives Of Beverly Hills' Finishes Its Very Unsatisfying Season

"I'm tired of being the bad guy."

Well Brandi, than stop being one. You can't stir the pot and get mad when you're accused of being the cook.

This last episode of the season was mostly about attending Adrienne Maloof's over-the-top, Cirque du Soleil-type party, where Brandi resembles a character in the Jason Segel comedy "I Love You, Man," because she ran around slurring her love for the likes of Kim Richards and Lisa Vanderpump.

Earlier in the week, Kyle and Kim, plus some of the other wives, attend niece Nicky Hilton's book signing at Kyle's store. Meanwhile, Lisa and Harry celebrate...

'The Flash' Recap: 'Rogue Time'

'The Flash' Recap: 'Rogue Time' Plays It Too Safe With Time Trav
Coming off of last week's "Out of Time," there was no way this week's "Rogue Time" could compare. Sorry, "Rogue Time." Last week's hour was about smashing "The Flash's" established rules to tiny little fragments. This week's hour is about retconning them all back into place. It was a losing battle from the start.

Also, it doesn't help that all the retcons seemed so... easy.

Example: Dr. Wells advises Barry not to fiddle with time travel and to play out his day exactly as he did before. Barry takes that advice into consideration, then starts screwing with the time stream like a minute lat...

'Community' Recap: 'Basic Crisis Room Decorum'

March 25th, 2015 7:20am EDT
Community
The Audacity of Hope

In its earlier seasons, “Community” distinguished itself among typical sitcoms with its determined focus on character development. The study group was various forms of broken, and Greendale was positioned as a place for them to work out their issues and become better people. The show followed through on this determination in a way that was deeply satisfying.

Six seasons in, “Community” is still concerned about allowing its characters to grow, but it is also intent on emphasizing what works best, and that can mean maintaining the status quo. “Basic Crisis Room Deco...

'Pretty Little Liars' Season 5 Finale Recap: [SPOILER] 'A' Has A
Once again, all four of the Liars end up together until “A” interferes in the "Pretty Little Liars" season five finale.

“A” abducts them from the van transporting them to the jail. Spencer is the first to wake up, where she finds herself in a replica of her room. The same goes for the rest of them, being locked up and watched by “A.” “A” then releases them into the house -- a human dollhouse.

Then they find someone whom we all don’t expect to see. MONA! Mona, in a blonde wig, surprises them. And this time, Mona feels different because Mona thinks she is Alison. Mona acts as if she is brai...

The Fosters 2x21-1
Last night, The Fosters season 2 ended. Per usual, the finale had major reveals, resolutions, and conflicts. "The End of the Beginning" managed to give some sort of satisfying conclusion to all the major story-lines from this season.

Callie's adoption conflict got resolved, Jude and Connor's romance progressed, and Mariana's dance group finally performed. However, The Fosters season 2 finale did manage to leave some big cliffhangers. One of these cliffhangers could potentially change the Fosters family forever, in a tragic way.

Pride or Prejudice

Jude paints his nails blue and heads to...

'Better Call Saul' Review: Another Tremendous Hour Of TV

March 24th, 2015 9:52am EDT
'Better Call Saul' Recap: 'RICO' Is An Incredible Underdog Story
It's only natural to compare "Better Call Saul" with "Breaking Bad." Because... well, duh.

But the more "Better Call Saul" we see, the more it's clear that these shows couldn't be more different, even if there's a 20-page list of similarities between the two.

Take the scene when Saul clamors through a dumpster full of rotting, unspeakable nursing home filth to try and find the shredded documents he needs to take down Sandpiper Crossing.

Were Walter White ever forced to scrounge through several hundred pounds of soiled Depends, he too would end up as soaked in horribleness as Saul did. W...

'Shameless' Review: Top 5 Wild Moments from 'South Side Rules'

March 23rd, 2015 10:54pm EDT
shame9
Remember when you hated Sammi because she was naively enamored with Frank and eating up screen time from other, beloved characters? Well, she finally earned all the vitriol that’s been thrown at her by characters and viewers alike. Last week the ramifications of Carl’s arrest seemed light, as if the entire family were unaffected by this inevitability. But the real consequence of Carl’s jail time is that they pissed off the wrong Gallagher. Sammi comes off as more villainous than any other character on Shameless, except for Frank, whose heinous actions are usually due to selfishness instead ...

'Girls' Recap: A Bathtub Full Of Pregnant Crazy

March 23rd, 2015 10:21am EDT
'Girls' Season 4 Finale Recap: Rough Birth
It's like the season just started! Although, it has been kind of a long journey from an unfriendly writer's workshop at the University of Iowa to a bathtub full of pregnant crazy in Brooklyn.

The season finale sends everyone off on strange new adventures. Some ridiculous (Jessa will be the WORST THERAPIST EVER. And I had a therapist once tell me I had fat thighs), some intriguing (Marnie going solo with much better material this time), and some that feel just right (Hannah and Fran getting together).

"Home Birth" revolves around Adam's earthy-crunchy-crazy sister Caroline giving birth. Th...

'The Good Wife' Recap and Review: 'Red Meat' - Who Won The Election?

'The Good Wife' Recap and Review: 'Red Meat' - Who Won The Elect
Election day is finally here on The Good Wife, putting an end to the storyline that's been the focus of most of the sixth season. "Red Meat" wraps up Alicia's campaign in precisely the way you could've predicted it would end a while ago, but the lack of surprise is compensated for with some humor in unexpected places that makes the road more traveled still entertaining.

Alicia and Jonathan are pretending that they didn't just make out as Alicia meets up with Peter, who naturally is not thrilled that she took aim at him in her latest speech. She retorts that once the day is over, they can g...
