'Homeland' Season 4 Episode 5 Recap: Here's To You Mrs. Robinson
Previously - Ambassador Martha’s husband Dennis was the deceased Sandy’s intel source, and now he's being blackmailed by the ISI. Fara discovered the deceased Haissam Haqqani is actually undeceased. Carrie’s morals remain deceased as she seduces Aayan to bring him into the fold.

In this episode, Quinn asks the dumbest question that has ever been asked on this show. I’m talkin’ Nicholas Brody’s son-level dumb (No offense to the actor, but man, did they make that kid look clueless). “Go to your room, Chris.”

Quinn asks Carrie if there is any line she won’t cross to get what she wants. *wild...

'The Walking Dead' Recap: 10 Badass Moments From 'Four Walls And
Damn, this season is moving at a lightning speed. After 4 seasons of slow moving plots, in which spending half a season looking for a single character was expected, The Walking Dead has finally found an exciting pace that matches the tone of the show. Instead of making us wait another 5 episodes for the highly anticipated Gareth and Rick confrontation, new EP Scott Gimple puts it smack dab in the 3rd episode. On to the next thing.

Every episode so far this season has resolved some issue (how long will it take to get out of Terminus? Will they get a clue about Beth’s whereabouts? Will they ...

Jim Carrey Takes On Matthew McConaughey, Halloween & Himself On SNL, Iggy Azalea Is Musical Guest

Jim Carrey Takes On Matthew McConaughey, Halloween & Himself On
When Jim Carrey first hosted "SNL" in 1996, it was one of the times when the host temporarily revamped the show according to his own performance style. That can be a good thing or a bad thing; in Jim's case, it was very good. For his third hosting stint, he was not quite as unstoppable, but he was still quite the blast of energy. As he pointed out in his monologue, Halloween is the one day each year that he is able to blend in with everyone else, and with a plethora of mostly successful All Hallow's Eve-themed sketches, he proved to be the most apt host for the occasion. There were a few cl...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Sharks' - Tough Day
At this point, Transporter: The Series is starting to feel like a well-oiled machine, just like the cars it so embraces. It's doing what every good TV series should do - take us on an extended journey with its characters. And just when it has made us laugh with one story, then it returns with a more serious mission that reminds us how well developed it's becoming and how talented its star is.

Frank's second contract in week two brings him back to his home territory of Paris. He argues with Dieter about why he still hasn't driven the red Audi we first glimpsed in "Trojan Horsepower" before ...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Hot Ice' - Diamonds
Transporter: The Series continues its high-speed drive in week two, with Frank going to a hockey game and a fight breaking out, but not before the audience enjoys some truly perfectly placed verbal jabs and a few guest appearances from some familiar faces. The result is the show's most fun episode to date, reminding us that it is possible to deliver the package and enjoy the ride, too.

Remember at the end of last week when Frank said he was going to Canada? Well, he's in Canada. Toronto, specifically, using a parking garage as his personal vehicle testing ground - you have to love the part...

'Constantine' Series Premiere Rundown: 'Non Est Asylum'

'Constantine' Series Premiere Rundown: 'Non Est Asylum'
Television is packed with supernatural themed shows that feature dark protagonists who are brooding with the burden of fighting otherworldly horrors while combatting their horrific past. These types of shows continually push the limits of the violence and gore that can be shown on television and are light on compelling female characters. Constantine is not much different.

If there was a checklist of all the things you’d expect from the genre, Constantine would hit them all. Sarcastic lead character who uses humor to mask past horrors? Check. An ensemble of sidekicks with varying Dues Ex Ma...

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Maybe The Show Should Spend More Time On Why Then How

October 24th, 2014 11:05am EDT
'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Maybe The Show Should Spend
How To Get Away With Murder has an interesting problem to deal with: do we show the how or the why? It's chosen how nearly every time and it's not making the show stronger.

Look at the season-long murder mysteries: the murder of Lila Stanguard, the college student who was most definitely sleeping with future murder victim number two, Sam Keating. Usually on shows like these, the victims are really fleshed out to feel like real people and to gain our interest. Shows like Twin Peaks and Veronica Mars did this was aplomb, but How To Get Away With Murder is neither of these shows.

The show is...

'Scandal' Recap: 5 Essential Questions From 'The Key'

'Scandal' Recap: 5 Essential Questions From 'The Key'
“You are poison,” Abby tells Olivia after weeks of antagonizing each other. It’s not exactly a fair criticism, seeing as Abby is attempting to blame Olivia for Rosen’s own stupid actions. But it hits Olivia right to the core. Because as far as she knows, as far as she’s been told in “The Key,” that’s exactly what she is. She’s basically told that she’s a poison that infects the men in her life and sets them on the path to destruction.

It’s an assessment built on lies, but it points out a disturbing part of Scandal. How many terrible, seedy political actions have been committed out of love ...

In the wise words of pop star Usher, sometimes “you gotta let it burn.” Callie and Arizona have finally walked away from their long-simmering marriage, relatively unscathed in “Grey’s Anatomy’s” fifth episode “Bend and Break.”

The ep opens with Callie and Arizona pitting their swords of resentment against each other in couple’s therapy. The therapist suggests taking a breather from one another to evaluate their situation. Callie’s immediately against it. She believes in order for her their marriage to survive they need to spend more time together, not less. Unsurprisingly Arizona is gung h...
