"Homeland" isn't throwing out the rulebook simply to make people freak out. It's going to the deepest, most valuable part of any story -- it's digging into the characters' souls -- for extraordinarily compelling dramatic reasons.
While "The Good Wife" was "Waiting For The Knock," I was waiting to be sufficiently entertained. Don't get me wrong, this episode had highlights, but for the most part, it was a bit lacking.
I've been waiting for politics to become a storyline, and this appears to be the episode. Don Cheadle was my MVP guest star this week, though Kellan Lutz definitely brought it too.
Another week, another new episode. Welcome to this week's open comment thread for "Unwindulax," the Oct. 25 episode of "30 Rock."
This week's episode wasn't quite as infuriatingly regressive as 602, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to feel much empathy for any of the characters when they're all such manipulative, selfish wastes of oxygen. (I know, welcome to the entire premise of the show.)
Whatever you want to say about "Revolution's" flaws (and this earnest show has one huge stumbling block), there's no doubt that it's successfully avoiding a number of traps and pitfalls in its quest to help NBC keep the lights on.
As with any TV show lasting longer than two seasons or so, "30 Rock" has seen its fair share of grumblers who say that the show's glory days are long over.
In this week's episode, Emily is forced to acknowledge the consequesnces of her obsession with getting even. Sure, Emily's every fiber is devoted to revenge, but at what cost?
The return of Jackie! That's right, Mrs. Florrick is out of the hospital and ready to tell voters about women throwing themselves at her son. It was a Nick-less, swishy-ness and drunk Alicia-filled episode.
Ryan Lochte! Sex idiots! Squirtle! Kenneth's hairless shins! Last night's episode was a potpourri of "Sex and the City" homages, dating archetypes and occasionally fourth-wall breaking madness.
Cinemax has carved out a nice little niche as the thinking person's action network; I don't know about you, but I'd take another season of the London-set "Hunted" over more "Boardwalk Empire" any day of the week.
Another week, another new episode. Welcome to this week's open thread for "Stride of Pride," the Oct. 18 episode of 30 Rock.
After an excruciatingly long break (nearly 10 months), "American Horror Story" has officially returned with a brand spankin' new season, aptly titled "Asylum."
I somehow found a way to get through the last six months without the "Happy Endings" gang, but I won't lie to you -- it wasn't easy. If the television gods saw fit to put 20 new episodes of "Happy Endings" on my DVR every week, I would watch them all.
I am on board for "American Horror Story: Asylum." Much to my surprise, I am genuinely interested to see where it'll go next. It's a show designed to shock, and so far, the biggest shock is my unexpected interest in "Asylum's" fever-dream.
This week's episode of "Revenge" delivers some much needed back story on Emily and Aidan, Takeda's other trainee. They used to be an item. That is, until he left Japan abruptly and broke her trust and -- presumably -- her heart.
