According to showrunner Alex Gansa, "Good Night" was meant to serve as a transition to the true action that will appear in the last two episodes of "Homeland."
In the latest episode of Almost Human, the bad guys take hostages, the good guys defeat them, and Minka Kelly smirks through the whole thing. That's it. That's what happened.
When show creator Craig Thomas announced that an entire episode of 'HIMYM' would rhyme, the Internet unleashed a chorus of hate. Fans cried that the show "jumped the shark" or that the writers had run out of ideas.
If the writers can tie all these disparate threads together in a way that seems plausible and not overly contrived, they will have the makings of a cracking conclusion to the season on their hands.
And just like that, "The Good Wife" took on Reddit -- sorry, Scabbit -- and the mess that happened with the Boston Marathon bombing. This week's episode, "Whack-a-Mole," introduced many stories that seem to be leading to something way bigger.
I didn't hate Almost Human! I also didn't love it. How long will it take the show to earn my respect? Will they have to save my life to do it? Probably!
It's election day on "Parenthood," which means it's finally time to discover if Kristina will be the next mayor of Berkeley. This is prime Braverman-bonding at its best, with the whole family pitching in for the greater cause! Well, sort of...
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.
In a riveting riff on the Jodi Arias case, last night's SVU was smart, fast-moving, and got a lot right. It was also the rare episode where the real-life headlines were more lurid than the episode it inspired. A good chunk of the Arias trial was too explicit to air on NBC's prime time.
Death has become so inconsequential on "American Horror Story: Coven" that nearly everyone who was killed off in the past is now walking the earth with the living. The way things are going, it doesn't seem like a good thing.
Between Sunday night's premier and Monday night's follow-up, John Kennex and Dorian must have had some major quality time together -- their relationship went from icy to spicy, complete with the banter of an Abbott & Costello routine. I'm surprised Kennex didn't flash a tattoo that said DRN=BFF.
There's a new show on FOX called Almost Human and it's about the future! Not the distant future like Year 3168 but the near-future future of 2048 when people will have iPhone 12's. Still exciting, but not in a whole-new-world kind of way.
"Mom and Dad" made very little sense, even by final season "HIMYM" standards. But, since I decided to "just go with it" after complaining for the majority of these recaps, I'm going try to find the good this week.
What's one way to keep a CIA agent from potentially blowing months of an elaborate sting to stage a governmental coup in Iran and locate the man responsible for America's Second 911?
"The Next Month" wasn't my favorite episode, but there were quite a few redeeming aspects, one of them being the storyline for Robyn (Jess Weixler).
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.
