The problem with Hail Mary passes is sometimes you complete and score a touchdown and other times the ball lands yards away from the receiver. Bringing all the characters together for what felt like a big Thanksgiving episode and then making Penny married on top of all was a big attempt -- and it didn't reach the end zone.
"An Adventure in Space and Time" has a bittersweet and surprisingly moving conclusion, and the whole production is anchored by David Bradley's terrific performance.
"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." transmits all the joy of an annual tax audit.
Big stuff happened this week in Mystic Falls. Big. Stuff. The episode began with possibly the best opening on record for "The Vampire Diaries." Silas is chilling at a bus stop in Philly with a couple when he begins opening up about his many problems. He told them about the Amara/Qetsiyah love triangle and how Qetsiyah turned Amara into stone "Medusa-style," but since they're both immortal they've just been waiting 2,000 years to meet up again. You know, normal stuff.
For a show of this age and this magnitude to be this creative and this clever in its seventh season is a remarkable feat. "The Big Bang Theory" is typically far from subtle, and does on occasion wring out its characters for all their worthy, "The Itchy Brain Simulation" proved that it can mine as much humor from inverting its characters as it does in playing them straight.
This show is always the best when the operating room is more of a backdrop for the drama and I present tonight's episode as exhibit A. Apologies for the legalese, but after an hour in that courtroom, I can't help it.
If the fork is the future, I see it lodged somewhere in Christina's body, perhaps right through her head. Things are still bad between her and Meredith and after tonight reconciliation is going to be a long time coming.
Big reveal this week on The Vampire Diaries: They found the anchor, and in one episode, no less. If only the search for the cure had been so speedy.
In an old-school sweeps move, "Big Bang" pulled a bit of stunt casting and brought back TV legend Bob Newhart to reprise his role as the gangs' belove...
While last week we got fake Weinergate, this week we get fake "American Idol."
There was no way "The Good Wife" could have kept up the breakneck pace of last weeks' phenomenal "Hitting The Fan," and "The Next Day" gave us something a little different.
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 5, Episode 5 of The CW's "The Vampire Diaries," titled "Monster's Ball." Previously on "The Vampire...
It's Halloween at Grey-Sloan and there are zombies, maggots, little girls getting almost scared to death and the ghost of Heather Brooks to make this episode feel, in April's words, completely random, and not at all supernatural.
Like most good horror fare, "The Returned" grapples with emotional conundrums that resist easy solutions.
"Grey's Anatomy" is to television what Pinterest is to the Internet. It's lines from this episode, like "Make this year count!" or "Invest in your brand!" and "Let it go!" that make me think of the sort of JPGs with paisley backgrounds and serif fonts my mother (whom I adore) attaches to her emails.
When we last left Mystic Falls, Stefan had a very inconvenient case of amnesia thanks to the 2,000 year witch, Qetsiyah.
