Welcome back, TBXers. Did you spend the week declaring that things be “divided into serds” or was that just me? Gaveston! Putting another deliciously nasty bastard in The Bastard Executioner! • The Bastard Executioner Season 1 recaps: Episode 1 and 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 On the subject of Gaveston, we learn the truth about Lady Love’s startling announcement at the end of last week’s episode when she hands her bloody undergarments to Isabel and apologizes to her handmaiden for making her complicit in the deception. Ever the voice of reason, Isabel says there is time to turn that deception into the truth if the baroness opens “her … Continue reading
Face Off Season 9 episode 11 is Syfy’s cross-promotion with their new show The Expanse, coming in December. The focus challenge is show a human that has survived a selected catastrophic event & evolved from that. Apparently The Expanse is about humans that have evolved with less gravity, so we’ve elongated & gotten bigger heads or something. Time to pick our disasters! This week it’s Nora’s turn to have a freak out. She has a moment where she just can’t sculpt. Normally in this situation, she’d just rip the clay off her face & start over. For some reason this … Continue reading
As The Flash Season 2 kicked off (following a quick overview of what happened last season), we find it is 6 months after the Singularity, and we can assume that Barry (Grant Gustin), as The Flash, is, indeed, as the title of this episode indicates, The Man Who Saved Central City. We learn that the city is holding a Flash Day in honor of the hero who saved them, but as Barry has flashbacks throughout the episode, we learn at what cost it came, as Ronnie (Robbie Amell) and Eddie (Rick Cosnett) both appeared to perish during the battle to stop Wells … Continue reading
BBC America’s new eight-part drama The Last Kingdom will appeal to Game of Thrones fans, though the former lacks dragons, effective sorcery and the (likely) resurrection of dead primary characters. Based on a historical fiction book series by Bernard Cornwell, The Last Kingdom is set in ninth-century England. At the center of the story is Uhtred, a Saxon who was captured as a boy and raised into a man by Danish invaders. Amid waves of violence, revenge and intrigue, Uhtred’s loyalties are tested on his quest to reclaim his birthright. The journey will lead him to join King Alfred in … Continue reading

It makes sense that ABC Family is changing its name to the more general name Freeform starting in January 2016, as the network has tended to veer away from what some may consider to be “family” programming for a while now (one of the only holdovers from the channel’s earliest incarnation as an arm of Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network is The 700 Club, which still airs in the wee hours on ABC Family). ABC Family president Tom Ascheim confirmed today that the rebrand builds on the channel’s existing strategy of “super serving ‘Becomers.’” I’m not sure if “Becomers” is a … Continue reading
Viewers get an inside look at the glamorous — and not so glamorous — lives of sports stars’ wives and girlfriends via the WAGS reality show on E!

Last week’s Blindspot ended with multiple cliffhangers. Did anyone out there think we were actually going to get answers this week? Tonight’s episode was definitely filled with all sorts of surprises. Episode 2 ended with Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander, Kyle XY) having a surprise reunion with the bearded man (Johnny Whitworth) from her flashbacks. Instead of picking up where we left off, “Eight Slim Grins” opens on a shot of what’s in Jane Doe’s refrigerator. Maybe she’s taking a look at what she has on hand for more unexpected company? Actually, the above scene seems to take place right before she met … Continue reading
