The Flash recap: “Things You Can’t Outrun”

The Flash recap: "Things You Can't Outrun"

Episode 3 of The CW’s The Flash is titled “Things You Can’t Outrun,” and that applies both literally to Barry’s (Grant Gustin) troubles in outrunning a dangerous new metahuman villain, and also figuratively to various characters’ inability to outrun their pasts. The baddie for this week is Kyle Nimbus (guest star Anthony Carrigan), who has the ability to turn himself into poison gas (and, of course, resolidify himself afterward). Nimbus got this power as a death row inmate the night of the particle accelerator accident — as Nimbus was being put to death by gas, the accident that also created … Continue reading

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 3 Recap: Founding Families

Vampire Diaries

This week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, “Welcome to Paradise,” is all about revenge. It starts off with Stefan revealing what he is to his boss and compelling him to do whatever he says. He needs a couple days off from work because he’ll be taking a trip to Whitmore to visit some old friends. Before he leaves, Stefan makes sure to have his boss do his dirty work and burry his dare I say it, girlfriend’s body.

“Twin Peaks” returning with new episodes in 2016

"Twin Peaks" returning with new episodes in 2016

The series originally ran two seasons (1990-91) on ABC, and was followed by the 1992 feature film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. After 25 years, Twin Peaks is coming back, as a nine-episode limited series on Showtime, which made the announcement … Continue reading
