Last week’s episode of Empire ended with Cookie and her sister Candice headed to Philly in search for their other sister Carol. Now that Cookie has to worry about her cookout event, she’s not worried about finding her sister Carol; especially if she’s going to have to search high and low. I guess it’s nice to know that this week’s episode shows Laura safe and practicing for the cookout with Hakeem. I definitely thought she was going to be bait for some twisted plan Anika had. What I will say is I wouldn’t let go of that theory just yet. … Continue reading
On this week’s Supergirl, we learn that Kara may be competent as an assistant and courageous as Supergirl but she’s a horrible babysitter. We learned this when she volunteers to watch Cat’s son Carter so her boss can accept a media award out of town. But Kara is preoccupied trying to stop a series of bombs at various spots connected to Maxwell Lord’s tech company. The alleged culprit is a distraught former employee named Ethan Knox, who looks to ruin everything the mogul has created to make him pay for firing him. Alex is on the case and gets to know Maxwell, who … Continue reading
At the end of last week’s episode of Fargo, we were left with so many outstanding questions. Was Dodd (Jeffrey Donovan) dead? Was Floyd (Jean Smart) dead? Someone must have been dead! If you think a lot went down in that episode, sit down and get ready for an action-packed follow-up. • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 The writers managed to redeem last week’s low body count in the first few minutes of “Did you do this? No, you did it!” It actually reminded … Continue reading
Last week’s episode of Blindspot gave us a lot to process. This time around, things get so intense, you may need multiple weeks to decipher the whole thing. Well, you’ll get them anyway — it’s the mid-season finale, people! Let’s get to it. • BLINDSPOT recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 | Episode 9 This week’s episode, “Evil Handmade Instrument,” starts with a shot of Patterson (Ashley Johnson) sitting with the FBI shrink.

Jane has finally agreed to go on a date with Rafael! Is it sad that I’m almost as excited as they are? The only problem is if they need to hire someone to watch Mateo in order to make some time for themselves — and Jane doesn’t want to. Looks like Jane will have to find a babysitter she trusts in this week’s Jane the Virgin. Since the Villanueva family just had their traditional family Thanksgiving, they head to Target for their other family tradition — Black Friday shopping. One ghost from the past that Jane didn’t expect to see while shopping … Continue reading
This far into Season 2 of Showtime’s The Affair, I have to admit, I’m a little done with episodes that attempt to pass off wildly different versions of the same events as the mysterious workings of two separate minds. While this episode was intriguing — bringing Noah and Helen together for the most substantial amount of time since he bolted for the writers cabin — I gave up on figuring out how to meld the two versions into a probable truth. We learned some not-so-surprising stuff about Whitney in the front end of Helen’s parcel. After that: There was a book signing. Helen was there. Noah … Continue reading
Into the Badlands airs Sunday nights at 10/9CT on AMC. It all begins with the most uncomfortable looking pair of black boots I’ve ever seen. It’s The Widow. She’s in a bar. It’s dingy, dark and full of go-go dancers, one of whom is using an angle grinder on her bustier. How creative. The Widow spots who she’s looking for. It’s her former Regent, Teague. The Widow’s not impressed by how he’s spending what he pilfered, but she’ll let bygones be bygones if he helps her out. He goes for his sword, but she kicks it away before he touches it. … Continue reading
SPOILER ALERT: If you have not watched the most recent episode of The Walking Dead and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading now. Ah, TWD! This season has been one hell of a ride so far, and now that we’re quickly approaching the dreaded mid-season break, we should expect nothing but more stuff that will leave us in agony until February. To the conspiracy theorists who believed Glenn survived the dumpster disaster, cheers! If you guessed the bloody innards were being torn from Nicholas and not Glenn, you are correct! For those who were certain Glenn made it … Continue reading
It has come down to this. The winter finale of How to Get Away with Murder answered the question of who shot Annalise. But that wasn’t even the most shocking revelation. Read on. We flash back 14 hours; Michaela wants to get rid of the gun. Caleb found the murder weapon, but didn’t want to tell Catherine for fear she would admit to the Hapstall crime. Catherine runs away. Annalise is caught up on everything at the mansion and tells Caleb she can no longer represent the siblings together. She wants to call our favorite A.D.A. Emily Sinclair to invite her over … Continue reading
This week’s episode of Empire is starting off with a bang. Lucious wants to make sure Hakeem knows what he’s missing out on. He calls Hakeem out by having Freda perform the new song she made with Lucious. It’s right there in the lyrics: Lucious has some serious beef with Hakeem. Daddy’s little favorite is no longer Hakeem; she’s Freda. Ouch! That has to hurt on so many levels. In order to prove himself to the world, Hakeem announces that he’ll be battling Freda for his last name. Nobody can just “become” a Lyon. You have to be born one. Things aren’t … Continue reading
