'Chicago Fire': 11 Epic Shayveride Moments
10 hours ago
Leslie Shay and Kelly Severide teamed up for a short two seasons as the power couple on Chicago Fire. Their scenes together gave rise to the name blending Shayveride and showed how the power of great acting and inexplicable chemistry can lead to some television magic. The gorgeous lesbian goofball and the hotter-than-a-fire, sometimes d-bag lieutenant formed a bond that even the forces of network TV couldn?t break apart. Until the Chicago Fire writers did just that when they gave Shay a mighty head shot (wow, not Casey for once) and closed those blue eyes forever in the season 3 premiere, ?Always.? In honor of the force that was Leslie Elizabeth Shay and Kelly Hotstuff Severide, we look back at the top 11 Shayveride moments in ChiFi history. »
'Selfie' Review: Is Insensitive and Narcissistic Eliza Likable?
23 hours ago
ABC's new comedy, Selfie centers around Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan), an unattractive and unpopular girl growing up--who was voted "Most Butt" (as in ugly)--decides enough is enough. She makes herself over and compensates years of ostracism by becoming a social media maven. But, after spending years carefully crafting herself into someone who is all style and no substance, she gets a wake-up call. Unable to hide her ugly reality behind upbeat status updates or carefully orchestrated pics, Eliza is stripped bare (almost), covered in panic pudding (vomit) and utterly exposed to the type of ridicule she doles out on a regular basis.
When in need of an actual friend, not followers, she realizes it's time to recreate and rebrand herself. Eliza turns to a co-worker and marketing genius, Henry (John Cho), to help her become more likable. »
'Manhattan Love Story' Review: Why this Candy-Coated Love Story Is Worth a Few Dates
23 hours ago
ABC's new romantic comedy Manhattan Love Story is reminiscent of one of Woody Allen's best films, Annie Hall. Although, neither character possesses the endearing bordering on annoying neuroticism. The premise is basic: two people, Dana (Analeigh Tipton) and Peter (Jake McDorman), meet and begin dating with New York city as the backdrop.
In addition to dialogue, the audience gets to hear his/her versions of events through inner monologues from the characters as well. If the pilot of Manhattan Love Story is any indication, stereotypical differences between the sexes will abound. Peter gets a bit weepy, and she assumes he's gay. Dana wants to talk about her day, he's distracted by her bra. All hope is not lost. The characters' individual personalities give the gimmick a fresh twist, and if the secondary characters are compelling enough to make this more of an ensemble, there's a show with a wide demographic appeal. »
'The Voice' Recap: A Returning Singer Stuns the Coaches
29 September 2014 4:20 PM, PDT
Well, folks, it's the third night of the Blind Auditions for The Voice's seventh season and the Hollywood Squares-style contestant grids are filling up and the slots for newcomers are dwindling down. Tonight, we had another crew of hopefuls with vocal performances reminiscent of Stevie Wonder, Bonnie Tyler, Bob Marley and The Charlie Daniels Band. By the end of the night, 11 more hopefuls have been added to the list of competitors who will receive coaching from tenured coaches Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and from the highly skilled and wildly successful Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.
Before we get started, take a look at all the singers who've already signed up with these four judges. Gwen began the evening with four vocalists, Blake's looking to add more to his crew of four singers, Pharrell opens up the evening already having won over five artists and Adam opened up with a mere three singers. »
Good Guys Turn Bad: TV Characters Who've Crossed Over to the Dark Side
29 September 2014 3:01 PM, PDT
We?ve seen it many times ... the good guy protagonist of a television show turns evil quicker than we can change the channel. Oftentimes, the character goes from bland and flavorless to a spicy filled treat over the span of a commercial break. Here are 17 of our favorite ?turns,? some unexpected leaving us reeling for days after the reveal, others more predictable, but all unforgettable trips to just south of evil. »
'The Blacklist' Recap: Do Red and Berlin Finally Meet?
29 September 2014 2:51 PM, PDT
Berlin, our bitter bad guy with a grudge, gave Red the finger on last week's The Blacklist. Literally, in a box. He vowed to send Reddington's ex-wife Naomi back piece by piece in a disturbing quest for retribution to avenge his daughter's death. In this week's episode, "Monarch Douglas Bank," our FBI super cops investigate a hit on a money laundering bank with a Berlin connection, while Red has coffee talk with his enemy.
The implausible, fantastical and unbelievable combine forces once again in The Blacklist to give us another hell of a ride with Red at the helm. Fun is always the theme of an otherwise dull Monday night as we hang on tight waiting for the Red and Lizzie antics that are sure to unfold.
'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: Will Ichabod Free Katrina in Time?
29 September 2014 1:32 PM, PDT
I wonder what surprises Sleepy Hollow has up its sleeve (or Ichabod's fashionable coat) in this week's episode. Last time, Ichabod was able to outsmart Moloch and Ichabod's own son Henry, who is not just a sin eater, but also the Horseman of War. Ichabod freed Abbie from purgatory with the help of Abbie's sister, Jenny. Oh, and there was a bit of help from Benjamin Franklin courtesy of Ichabod's memory and some newly discovered documents that aided in the rescue, too. I am still trying to bleach my eyes (figuratively speaking) to remove the image of Benjamin Franklin as a nudist. Yikes!
This week's episode of Sleepy Hollow, "The Kindred," follows Ichabod and Abbie on their quest to rescue Katrina from the Headless Horseman. »
'Castle' Season 7 Premiere Recap: What Happened to Castle?
29 September 2014 1:02 PM, PDT
Ah, fall. The leaves are changing, pumpkin is suddenly in everything and Castle is beginning another season of murder and mayhem. In last season's finale, Castle followed the first commandment of serial dramas ("Thou Shalt Not Allow Thy Romantic Leads Any Lasting Happiness") and had Castle not only miss his wedding, but plunge to an apparent fiery death via car crash on the way. The season 7 opener, "Driven," begins immediately after, with Beckett running to the wreck in her wedding dress, trying to reach Castle. It's obvious that anyone in the car is long dead by now. Luckily, when the fire is put out, Beckett sees that there's no body inside. And thank goodness, because it would be really awkward if the writers killed off the show's title character. »
'Gotham' Recap: Can Selina Kyle Help Gordon Solve the Wayne Case?
29 September 2014 12:55 PM, PDT
In last week's premiere of Gotham, we met James Gordon, the last good man in the corrupt city of Gotham. James began his career at the Gcpd by partnering with Harvey Bullock, a cynical veteran willing to work with the bad guys to get things done. Bullock and Gordon caught the case of a lifetime with the high-profile murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne. Officially, they "solved" the case, but unofficially, the Waynes' killer is still at large. And in order to protect himself and his fiance, James had to pretend to murder Oswald Cobblepot for the mob.
In this week's episode, "Selina Kyle," we see more of the future Catwoman as Gordon and Bullock look into a child trafficking ring. Meanwhile, Oswald leaves plenty of victims in his wake as he tries to make his way back to Gotham. And like last week, please let me know if I »

'Bones' Spoilers: 9 Things to Know about 'The Lance to the Heart'
29 September 2014 4:21 AM, PDT
Now that the biggest and best kept secret in Bones history has been revealed, it's time to discuss "The Lance to the Heart," Bones' follow-up to the season 10 premiere which I keep mistakenly referring to (in my head) as 'The Finale' because of how devastating it was. So, here are some teasers to tantalize and torture you from now until 8pm on Thursday when the episode debuts on your very own small screen.
Just in case you've expunged the memory from your addled brain: recall that in the last 140 seconds of last week's Bones premiere, "The Conspiracy in the Corpse," the world split in two when Dr. Sweets shockingly yet valiantly bled-out from injuries he sustained while fighting off a trained assassin working for the FBI conspiracy turds. Right there, staring into Booth's eyes, Sweets uttered his final words, "The world's a lot better than you think it is ..." and »
'Castle' Season 7 Premiere Review: A New Mystery Begins
28 September 2014 10:00 PM, PDT
Tonight, Castle returns for its seventh season of murder, mystery and wild theorizing. When we last left our intrepid heroes, both Castle and the romantic lead-up of six seasons had gone up in literal flames. Season 7's premiere, "Driven," finds Beckett and her team dealing with the aftermath and the writers correcting some of the mistakes they made last season. »
