"Vile" was the perfect catch-up for any viewer who has suffered a blunt force head trauma over the past six years and forgotten everything that's happened up until this point; the characters were all doing their best to remind us about things that happened as recently as last week.
One of the best parts of "30 Rock" is how ridiculously quotable it is. When I was on my college newspaper staff, it was pretty standard in our newsroom for setbacks or difficult interviews to be met with a resounding "Blerg!"
It's official: We're in filler episode territory of "The Good Wife." While "Here Comes the Judge" had some interesting elements, it felt overwhelmingly "meh."
I'm a little devastated. It seems Liz Lemon won't be able to have it all after all, no matter how many times she's insisted it in elevators and mid-sandwich at the airport over the last seven years.
Usually after an episode of "American Horror Story," I would immediately start writing my recap. But after the second half of two-parter "I Am Anne Frank," I just needed to compose myself.
While "Supernatural" has featured some interesting character developments over the past few weeks, the season's mythology has taken a backseat since episode 802, so it was great to rejoin that arc so decisively with "A Little Slice of Kevin."
This week's episode wasn't as awful as last week's bland installment, but only because the show threw an incomprehensible stream of plot twists at us to distract from its overall ridiculousness.
Not much was resolved or advanced in this week's Ruby-centric outing, but it was clearly pushing things into place for next week's dramatic-looking installment.
"The Good Wife" introduced the world to Therese Dodd, one very obnoxious comedienne in "Anatomy of a Joke." Christina Ricci turned in a fine performance as Therese, but there was more slight story progress than interesting material.
No one does honesty like the Winchester brothers. Whereas most of us would try to be up-front about our resentment for our family members in a constructive and healthy way, Sam and Dean subscribe to the "Supernatural" method of conflict resolution ...
This week's episode was fusion-themed and asked the dancers to combine two very different styles of dance, making for some confusing routines and even more confused dancers.
Everyone's either going to end up in jail or involved in an orgy by the end of the season, but I'm mostly just hoping that rocks fall and kill them all.
Mindy Kaling's self-absorbed, superficial character has to carry "The Mindy Project," but she is simply not capable of bringing the kind of depth and nuance that Dr. Lahiri needs to make her either sympathetic or fascinating.
Vic and Conrad renew their nuptials, Gordon Murphy dies a second time, and the Stowaway re-opens with the help of a foreshadowed bad guy. Oh, and Emily and Fauxmanda teeter dangerously at the edge of having their true intentions exposed.
After the last episode's hit-and-miss introduction to Frankenstein, this week's episode felt like a breath of fresh, top-of-the-beanstalk air. We finally found out who Michael Raymond-James is playing, and who sent him the postcard in the season premiere ...
This episode of "The Good Wife" is a game changer. In fact, it's the game changer many stories needed. Where to begin? Amanda Peet's fine performance? Maura Tierney's character's bombshell? The drinks between Alicia and Kalinda? So much to discuss.
