Recap: 'True Blood' - 'Karma'
1 hour ago
Tonight’s episode brings Will Yun Lee, formerly of “Witchblade” and the ill-fated “Bionic Woman” reboot, on board as Katsurou “Mr. Gus, Jr.” Ryouichi. He’s the son of the CEO of the Yokonomo Corporation and the head of its North American division. The Yakuza forces capture Eric and Pam in mid-rampage and deliver them to Gus Jr., who shares Eric’s vengeful hatred of Sarah Newlin; after all, by tainting the Tru Blood supply and creating the Hep-v epidemic, she bankrupted his company. The vampire and the businessman-gangster come to an agreement to share information and split the work: Eric, who knows that Sarah has an infected vampire sister living in Dallas, will kill her, and Mr. Gus will take the body. I would assume that, after a quick stop at the taxidermist, he’d have the corpse stuffed and mounted in the lobby of the Yokonomo corporate headquarters, »

Review: 'Masters of Sex' - 'Fight'
1 hour ago
A review of tonight's "Masters of Sex" coming up just as soon as the chef walks the cow through a warm room... "And I never did. Not once. I took it. Like a man." -Bill The people who work in television don't have a lot of time to actually watch television, which means that sometimes what seems to be an homage to — or rip-off of — another show is actually a complete coincidence. "Masters" showrunner Michelle Ashford isn't a "Mad Men" viewer, and when I ran into her at a press tour event last week and began describing the plot of "The Suitcase" to her — specifically the part about it also taking place on the night of a boxing title fight — she began to look mortified. Her plan with "Fight" wasn't to do the "Masters of Sex" equivalent of "The Suitcase," even if that's somehow what happened. But what's great about »

Review: 'The Leftovers' - 'Gladys'
1 hour ago
A review of tonight's "The Leftovers" coming up just as soon as I listen to a little Hall & Oates... "But there can't be any doubt, Laurie. Because doubt is fire. And fire is gonna burn you up, until you are but ash." -Patti Episode 3 of "The Leftovers" was the one most critics cited as the moment where they went all-in with the show, and the reaction from many of you suggested the same. Doing a single-pov story every week — especially one with as narrow a focus as "Two Boats and a Helicopter" — isn't an easy thing to pull off, nor does it seem like what Lindelof and Perrotta want to do, given the size and scope of the broken world they're depicting. But "Gladys" does a very effective job of splitting the difference between the tunnel vision of episode 3 and the broader ensemble pieces we've gotten in the other installments. »

Recap: 'Big Brother" Sunday: Zankie Rules The Roost
3 hours ago
It’s Zankie Time in the “Big Brother” household, with both Frankie and Zach serving as Heads Of Household as tonight’s installment starts. That status will change by night’s end, with the weekly Battle Of The Block and the potential for Team America to force a major verbal battle during tonight’s nomination ceremony. Will The Detonators stick together another week, or will that alliance implode? Let’s find out what happens on this Sunday (July 27) installment… 8:00 pm Est: Previously on “Big Brother”: Zach shouted so loudly in the confessional room that I heard him in real time off-air. And I live in Boston. 8:02 pm: “Zankie is the new power couple!” intones the announcer. Damn straight. 8:03 pm: No one seems happy about Zach as Head of Household, with multiple people calling him a “wild card.” Meanwhile, Frankie is overcome with emotion at the thought »

12 Of The Best Pint-Sized Cosplays We Saw At Comic-Con 2014
4 hours ago
Halloween only comes once a year but quite frankly that is unacceptable. Why shouldn’t kids (and adults) get to slather themselves in body paint, don a papier-mâché helmet, and go forth into the day? Well at Comic-Con, you can. There might not be any free candy on hand…but free swag is plentiful and these kids were decked out to the nines in order to collect them all. »
