'Gotham' Review: About As Good As It Gets

Denette Wilford | September 19, 2014 | Canada TV
'Gotham' is not the Batman tale most fans have grown to know and love because unlike other incarnations, this one doesn't feature the Dark Knight being all broody, saving the day. Anyone who loves a good origin series will love it, but even those who aren't interested in how things began will still sink their teeth into the drama.

The Crawleys Are Back: Why The World Loves Downton Abbey

High50 | September 18, 2014 | Fifty
Downton Abbey sweeps back on to Sunday-night television in Britain this weekend, much to the delight of its avid fan base. While the British public has long had a love affair with costume drama -- not to mention Dame Maggie Smith -- the rest of the world has also taken the show to its bosom.

The Voice: Million-Dollar Coaches, Dime-a-Dozen Contestants

Mark Carpowich | September 17, 2014 | Entertainment
The contestants will probably once again take a back seat, awkwardly watching the continuation of the Adam-Blake bromance while awaiting meaningful feedback (which may or may not even come) that could help steer them toward a career as a famous singer. Which, don't forget, is supposed to be the premise of this whole thing.

MasterChef Recap: Girls Rule, Boys Drool in 'Winner Chosen'

Karen Fratti | September 17, 2014 | Entertainment
Usually, MasterChef exaggerates: most extreme pressure test ever, or biggest cooking competition in the world!" but this finale was super real.

Growing Up in Iran With Howard Stern

Pegah Patra | September 16, 2014 | Entertainment
Some people here might not appreciate how blessed they are, because they've never lived in a repressed society, but, for me, every time I tune in to Howard Stern -- I think of how lucky I am to live where freedom and liberty exist, especially for women.

'Red Band Society' Review: This New Fall Show Is Not To Be Missed

Denette Wilford | September 16, 2014 | Canada TV
I'm not saying "Red Band Society" is perfect, but it's pretty darned close and, what's best, it's unlike anything on TV right now. Sure, it's a little "Fault in our Stars"-y, but otherwise it hits the mark, and then some.

Message From a Boob Tuber

Phu Nguyen | September 15, 2014 | TV
I like to watch TV. Okay, maybe I love to watch TV. Either way, you get it. I'm 'addicted' to many shows, and I admit that a time or two, I have opted to stay in and watch a show over going out for human contact. What I don't like is to be judged for it.

'Z Nation' Review: Zombie Show Has More Bark Than Bite, And That's OK

Denette Wilford | September 12, 2014 | Canada TV
'Z Nation' is from The Asylum -- the producers who brought the world 'Sharknado' -- but don't sneer at 'Z Nation.' It's nothing like the campy oceanic creature sci-fi phenomenon; though don't get me wrong, it's no 'Walking Dead' either. And so begin the comparisons.

Happily Ever After?The Leftovers Finale Recap

Karen Fratti | September 9, 2014 | Entertainment
This is what I was waiting for all season. Total and complete chaos. I was sure we were stuck with Kevin in the woods and wondering what the heck the GR were doing laying out baby clothes.

Hail, Hail, A Vagenius Has Left This Realm: Joan Rivers, Rest In Peace

Roseanne Barr | September 5, 2014 | Celebrity
Thank you on behalf of all comedians working today who know that you always fought the enemies of comedy. You controlled the room always, in the most professional way. You leveled the playing ground for all comedians. You'll be missed, but not forgotten. Copied but never matched. Never bested.

Joan Rivers' Animal Evolution

Joan Rivers had a barbed tongue but she also had a soft spot for animals. Despite her penchant for wearing fur, Joan always appreciated PETA's efforts.

Joan Rivers Remembered

Tavis Smiley | September 4, 2014 | Entertainment
Over two nights, our conversation covered many things -- her devotion to her family, her legendary work ethic, her delight in making people laugh -- and then it took on what turned out to be a prescient dimension.

How to Tap Into Your Inner Black Woman... According to Lifetime

Chevonne Harris | September 3, 2014 | Women
With the SMH tagline of the season, "Trapped inside of every white girl is a strong Black woman ready to bust out," the show could be laughable if it wasn't wrong at nearly every level.

Recaps of Some of Your Favorite Returning Fall TV Shows. In Gifs.

Hulu.com | September 3, 2014 | Entertainment
The biggest silver lining to the downfall of summer is the knowledge that fall TV is finally on the horizon, bringing some trusty old friends back into our lives once again. But the summer has been long and hot and has left us a little foggy on what went down during spring finales oh-so-long ago.

Breaking Bad, Sherlock, and Television's Golden Age of Anti-Heroes

William Bradley | September 3, 2014 | Entertainment
Whether all these figures are anti-heroes, or in some cases something else entirely, is an interesting question. As is the question of why anti-heroes are so important in quality television. Short form answer is that they match the times. It's a mostly cynical and sour era, with little faith in institutions or, generally speaking, leaders.

Why 'Badass British Lady Detectives' Should Be Your Favorite Netflix Category

Erin Ruberry | September 2, 2014 | TV
There's an entire genre -- Vulture calls it British Women Getting It Done -- where women take matters into their own hands to solve crimes, save lives and sometimes, God forbid, knock a few strands of hair out of place. These ladies aren't your mother's Miss Marple.
