Jane the Virgin Episode 7 recap: I love him, I love him not ...

This week on Jane the Virgin, we start off with a flashback to five years ago when Jane was 19 and first kissed Rafael. Jane tells Xo about Rafael and how amazing he was, but Xo thinks he sounds like the stereotypical playboy. Turns out that mother knows best since Rafael never called Jane back. Jane, however, feels that things are different now with Rafael, and that Xo was the one that interrupted Rafael and Jane’s magical kiss. But Xo feels that she needs to continue to protect her daughter from Rafael because he’s still the same playboy he was … Continue reading

Has anybody else been wishing Constantine would get around to answering any of the dozens of questions it’s been asking since premiere? How and why can Chas survive a giant hole in his chest?

Danse Vaudou might not have answered any of these questions, but it did start to hint at them so hopefully we don’t have long to wait now… The cold open’s murder is of a fashion student having an ironic phone conversation about how not-in-danger … Continue reading

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 8 Recap: Friendsgiving

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 8 Recap: Friendsgiving

On this week’s The Vampire Diaries, we start by going back into time to the specific date of May 9, 1994. This is the night that Kai went on a killing spree involving four members of his family. In the short flashback, we see Kai trying to kill a young Jo — so it looks like I was right on the two being brother and sister. In fact, they’re twins — and not the only set of twins in the family. As Kai is running after Jo, whom he just stabbed, she is trying to hide the other twins in … Continue reading

Jane the Virgin Episode 6 Recap: Telenovela Love

Jane the Virgin Episode 6 Recap: Telenovela Love

On “Chapter 5” of Jane the Virgin, we start off by going back in time to Jane’s 21st birthday party. It’s a normal 21st birthday party where the birthday girl and her guests are getting hammered — although in this party, the birthday girl’s mother is getting drunk too. There’s a knock at the door and it’s a young Michael in his cop uniform. He and Jane share what’s called a “significant encounter” in telenovelas, which is the first encounter between two people who are meant to be together. This seems like a very emotional scene but Jane is plastered … Continue reading

Constantine Episode 4 recap: A Feast of Moral Questionability

Constantine-Gary-Lester

It’s episode four and Constantine just got dark. “A Feast of Friends” takes a classic Hellblazer story, some seriously unsettling imagery, a clichéd take-home message (don’t do drugs, kids!) and starts stepping up to the plate on the series’ potential. Instead of the nameless red shirt we’ve come to expect in the cold open, this week we are introduced to Gary Lester who just got off a plane and is trying his hardest to get through customs even though he’s obviously strung-out. Airport security does an unimpressive job of interrogating him and then breaks his priceless antique jar, unleashing a … Continue reading

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 7 Recap: Aching For Your Love

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 7 Recap: Aching For Your Love

This week on The Vampire Diaries, we start where we left off in last week’s episode with Damon  in Elena’s room, where she tells him that she still can’t remember anything good about him or the memories they shared. She thought that once she saw Damon face-to-face, the memories would come back, but nothing is working. She feels bad and apologizes to Damon, but he can’t stand to look at her with her inability to share his strong emotions. I guess you can’t blame Elena for trying because she could’ve blown Damon off, but you can tell that she can’t … Continue reading

“The Flash” recap: Things get explosive in “Plastique”

"The Flash" recap: Things get explosive in "Plastique"

I’m not sure if The CW purposely scheduled the “Plastique” episode of The Flash to air on Veterans Day or not, but either way, it was timely, in that its main story dealt with the mistreatment of a military veteran who ends up as a metahuman capable of blowing things up merely by touching them. Her backstory touches on the way she has been used in the past, and in her current story she is pursued by the military to be used again, this time as a new weapon. Also in the episode, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris (Candice Patton) … Continue reading

Girlfriends Guide To Divorce: Marti Noxon and Lisa Edelstein on Bravo’s bold new dramedy

THE GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO DIVORC

How you relate to Bravo’s new Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce will likely depend not on how you feel about The Big D itself, but how you feel about your own romantic connections — or lack thereof. And that’s just how the show’s creator Marti Noxon intended it. “For me, this show is much more about what it’s like to be men and women right now — and right now it’s really complicated,” says Noxon, who took over for Joss Whedon as showrunner on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then worked with Shonda Rhimes on Private Practice, Matthew Weiner on Mad Men … Continue reading
