Supergirl Could Take Place In the Same World as Arrow and The Flash

10 hours ago

When it was announced that Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler’s Supergirl television series was heading to CBS instead of The CW, many people, including myself, were disappointed that the show would not be on the same network as Arrow and The Flash. With Berlanti at the helm and the fact that Kara would be a woman in her early 20’s (not to mention the fact that the character appeared in the later seasons of The WB/CW’s Smallville), The CW felt like the perfect fit for Supergirl, especially because it would allow for a possible three-show crossover between it, Arrow and The Flash. However, as first reported by KSiteTV, new information from a profile on Berlanti coming out in the Dec. 5 issue of Entertainment Weekly shows that there is a possibility that Kara could be heading to Starling or Central City at some point during Supergirl‘s run. »

Selfie Season 1 Episode 8 Review: “Traumatic Party Stress Disorder”

11 hours ago

The first twelve or so minutes of this episode of Selfie is pretty predictable comedy set-up: it’s Henry’s birthday, and he doesn’t like gifts, so Eliza decides to get him a gift. Hilarity ensues, and Henry ends up at a Blues Traveler concert while Eliza organizes a surprise birthday party at Henry’s house – from beginning to almost-the-end, “Traumatic Party Stress Disorder” is average comedic far, heightened with Selfie‘s penchant for great dialogue… but nothing special or memorable, traits one could also apply to the last few, much better, minutes without much argument for me. However, how those final minutes are framed, and how it gives depth to a completely unecessary and clearly short-lived character in the process, make “Traumatic” a better episode than one of this kind really has any right to be – which in the end, is disappointing, since Selfie‘s been canceled and »

Ellen DeGeneres Becomes Anastasia Steele in This 50 Shades of Grey Movie Parody

11 hours ago

One of the best things that Ellen DeGeneres does on her show, Ellen, is parody different movies and TV shows. While I didn’t think Ellen could top her jokes about Matthew McConaughey’s Lincoln commercials (which have also been spoofed by Saturday Night Live and South Park), she may just have done that by debuting her “starring role” in the new 50 Shades of Grey film. That’s right, everyone, don’t believe what you’ve heard about the movie; Dakota Johnson is no longer its female lead—Ellen has now become Anastasia Steele, at least in this awesome and really funny parody. In the video below, you can watch as Ellen cuts Johnson out and inserts herself into the biggest scenes in the film’s trailer, as she pretends to act opposite Jamie Dorman, who will be playing the infamous Christina Grey (a role that was originally nabbed by »

Benched Season 1 Episode 5 Review: “Shark, Actually”

11 hours ago

Ineffective shark metaphors aside, “Shark, Actually” is another solid entry for Benched, one that finally pushes Nina to the background – if only for a few scenes – to focus a little more on Phil and Carlos, continuing to build out the world of characters in the public defender’s office (and around it). Of course, all the great jokes and heartwarming small moments can’t outweigh the feeling the show’s forcing its two leads together; something that embodies itself right in the title, a play on Love, Actually. Not that Phil and Nina wouldn’t make a great couple: I just think teasing an idea so early robs a show of potential character-building, instead constructing stories around why people are good for each other, rather than stories that exemplify why these people are just good people in general – and when Nina’s off learning that there is such a thing as a honest, »

Drew Carey, Judd Apatow, John Mayer & More to Be Late Late Show Guest Hosts

12 hours ago

The Late Late Show will be without a true host for almost three months after Craig Ferguson leaves in December. Right now, Ferguson is scheduled to leave on the show on Friday, Dec. 19, and James Corden, who was officially announced as Ferguson’s successor back in September, will take over as host on Monday, March 9, 2015. For the time in between Ferguson’s departure and Corden’s debut as host, CBS has lined up a slew of guest hosts for The Late Late Show, 10 of them to be exact. The first guest host will be The Price Is Right‘s Drew Carey, who will take control of The Late Late Show from Jan. 5-9 and then will return for March 2-6, the final week before Corden takes over. Carey, in addition to The Price Is Right, also served as host of Whose Line Is It Anyway? from 1998-2007. The rest of »

The Mindy Project Season 3 Episode 9 Review: “How to Lose a Mom in 10 Days”

12 hours ago

As much as a Thanksgiving episode would’ve been both appropriate and undoubtedly hilarious if Annette Castellano hosted, The Mindy Project finally addressed the overbearing mother-son relationship between Danny and his Ma. Annette has a key to Danny’s apartment but it’s her inopportune timing that makes her barging in even more irritating to Mindy.  By the end of the episode, she’s learned to at least knock on the bathroom door rather than go right in when Danny is bathing with Mindy.  I have to wonder though if Annette’s obtrusive behavior will continue.  Like I said, it’s progress that she knocks at least but she does still let herself into his apartment.  People don’t change their personalities completely.  Danny will always be his Ma’s favorite boy and she’ll always treat him as such. Mindy’s solution to dealing with Annette is to set her up on a date. »

The Flash Vs. Arrow Trailer Is Here and It’s Awesome

12 hours ago

Fans who watched the all-new episode of The Flash last night were given more than just another solid episode of the freshman series, one that provides us with even more information about what exactly Harrison Wells is up to behind-the-scenes. They also got the first, full-length, minute-long trailer for The Flash Vs. Arrow crossover, and oh man, it’s awesome. Starting with the opening “training” scene between Barry and Oliver and ending with an even longer look at the epic fight between the two of them, the trailer, like most of the ones put together for Arrow over the past year or so, is almost movie-like. Everything from the tone of the scenes to the action itself feels and looks like a superhero blockbuster, one that will span two nights, with the first installment “Flash vs. Arrow,” airing next Tuesday, Dec. 3, followed by “The Brave and the Bold” on Wednesday, »

New Girl Season 4 Episode 9 Review: “Thanksgiving IV”

14 hours ago

In recent weeks, New Girl has valued comedy over character, and for a show that dealt with so much romantic drama between its two leads last year, a story decision that sometimes got in the way of the show’s comedic rhythm, I can’t really fault New Girl for wanting to be “just funny” for a little bit. However, when the show puts together episodes like “Background Check” or last night’s “Thanksgiving IV,” ones that not only are filled with some amazing jokes but that also dig deep into who these characters are and want they want, that’s when New Girl goes from a good sitcom to a great one. This week it’s pretty simple: everyone just wants to be loved. While the idea behind “Thanksgiving IV” isn’t revolutionary (it’s pretty much the story New Girl has been telling all season: the battle between »

New Once Upon a Time Photos Preview a Hook & Emma Kiss, Anna & Kristoff in Danger & More

16 hours ago

As I wrote about earlier this week, Once Upon a Time has really been firing on all cylinders throughout the first half of its fourth season, and by the looks of these photos from the show’s next all-new episode, entitled “Fall,”airing this coming Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC, it doesn’t looks like the show has any plans on slowing down. As the pictures below, along with ABC’s official description for the episode, show, Sunday’s episode of Once Upon a Time should feature a lot of action in both the past and present. Hook and Emma’s kiss is a sign that the two of them seem to be still doing well, despite Hook’s worries that she’ll see that he’s a bad man, and Regina and Robin Hood appear to be getting even closer, as she and Henry visit (and possibly even stay) at his camp. »

New Supernatural Photos Preview Sheriff Jody Mills’ Return

16 hours ago

Supernatural fans, get ready to see another familiar face. After Kate, the werewolf that Sam and Dean spared back in Season 8, reappeared in “Paper Moon,” the fourth episode of this season, I figured it was only a matter of time until we saw another person from the Winchesters’ past. And it looks like I’m right, because in next week’s episode, “Hibbing 911,” the eighth installment of Season 10, Kim Rhodes will be returning to the show as Sheriff Jody Mills, one of Sam and Dean’s only remaining allies (not to mention one of the very few women that they have met that has actually survived this long—it’s pretty much just her and Felicia Day’s Charlie). In the episode, Jody is required to attend a mandatory sheriff’s retreat and is partnered Donna (returning guest star Briana Buckmaster), the very enthusiastic and upbeat sheriff that Sam and »

Why We Should Be Very Excited About the Unorthodox Cast of True Detective Season 2

16 hours ago

On Monday, you probably couldn’t have missed the news that True Detective Season 2 finally has its cast, and surprisingly, many of the leaks were true. The final roster is Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Taylor Kitsch and Rachel McAdams in the four major roles of the season. We even know who each is playing: – Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. – Vince Vaughn as Frank Semyon, a criminal and entrepreneur in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner. – Rachel McAdams as Ani Bezzerides, a Ventura County Sheriff’s detective whose uncompromising ethics put her at odds with others and the system she serves. – Taylor Kitsch as Paul Woodrugh, a war veteran and motorcycle officer for the…

Person of Interest Season 4 Episode 9 Review: “The Devil You Know”

18 hours ago

CBS takes a lot of crap from people. It’s often described as a cynical, money-making machine that has little to offer in the way of substance; or, it’s described as the old persons network, only showing easy-to-digest procedurals that don’t tax the mind. If you haven’t guessed it, I think that’s a load of– well, a lot of four-letter words that I’m not supposed to say. CBS has two of the best shows on television in Person of Interest and Elementary, and yet a lot of critics like to point at Two-and-a-Half Men as the damning evidence against them. That is, of course, to ignore the copious amounts of garbage on every other network but what’s a little hyperbole among elitists? Tonight’s Person of Interest wasn’t perfect. It was good, solid television that dove deep into character and rewarded those who »

Supernatural Season 10 Episode 7 Review: “Girls, Girls, Girls”

18 hours ago

There was a lot of interesting stuff in tonight’s Supernatural. A lot more moving parts than usual, which I like; though I’ve really enjoyed the Winchester-centric episodes of the last two or three I thought it was about time to dive back in, if only because three relative stand-alone episodes are a bit of an impediment when it comes to creating story-telling momentum. A lot of things are taken for granted in this show; they’ve either already been explained or ‘solved’ or whatever and we just go on about our business. Castiel is a perfect example of that sort of thing. Cas is not a human. We know this. We know, deep down, he is a parasite inside the body, mind, and soul of one Jimmy Novak. And yet, we really haven’t discussed that since Jimmy willingly went back with Cas in Season 5. Shouldn’t we, »

Who has Guest-Starred the most on Hot in Cleveland?

19 hours ago

TV Land, the network that let’s us relive our past by airing our favorite old shows, announced some startling news earlier this week. The network will be ending its popular sitcom Hot in Cleveland at the conclusion of the sixth season, which is currently in production. The series premiered on June 16, 2010 and became the first scripted show for the network. Since then, TV Land has produced other comedies including The Exes, Happily Divorced, and The Soul Man. Hot in Cleveland was a success for the network and revitalized the careers of its four leading ladies: Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendy Malick, and of course Betty White. The show has made over 100 episodes and has featured many famous fcelebrities including Tim Daly, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Craig Ferguson. But who has guest-starred the most?

Castle Season 7 Episode 8 Review: “Kill Switch”

25 November 2014 7:32 PM, PST

In this Esposito-centric episode, we get a lot more of the recurring female characters, as well as a bit of a health scare reminiscent of recent events. We start with our newlyweds arriving to their first crime scene since the honeymoon. “You still remind me a little of Hooch” was a great callback not only to season 2, but also to the former Opening Narration (it’s been a while, so if you forgot, it began: “There are two kinds of folk who sit around and think about how to kill people – psychopaths and mystery writers. I’m the kind that pays better”). Our victim, Paul, was found on a park bench with a shot to the head. Castle and Beckett speak to his brother, who says Paul worked a lot at a government job, where he’d recently gotten a disturbing call with a scheduled meet-up that very morning. His boss… »

Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman Are Heading to TV in David E. Kelley’s Limited Series ‘Big Little Lies’

25 November 2014 2:19 PM, PST

It seems like the most popular move for movie stars now is to head to TV, and we’re not just talking about men, like Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Billy Bob Thorton, and Martin Freeman. No, female film actresses are hopping on television projects as well, and Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman are the latest ones to do so, as it was announced today that both actresses are heading to TV to star in in David E. Kelley’s new limited series Big Little Lies. Big Little Lies will be based off of the New York Times best-selling Liane Moriarty novel of the same name. The novel focuses on three mothers to kindergartners whose seemingly perfect lives unravel to a murder-mystery that takes place during a disastrous parents’ night at an elementary school fundraiser. Kelley will write the show’s pilot and serve as showrunner; both Witherspoon and Kidman will »

Will and Should Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Introduce the Inhumans?

25 November 2014 1:50 PM, PST

While we have to wait another week for a new episode of the ABC hit series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., there have been a lot of discussions this fall about what the character Skye (Chloe Bennet) and her father (Kyle MacLachlan) really are. Ever since last season, they have been teasing that Skye is more than just your average human girl, even going as far as hinting at that she is possibly alien. It also has to do with the fact that her body was able to accept the GH325 serum from the blue alien that has officially been confirmed as a Kree (which we all speculated). But there have been several bread crumbs that could be leading to the introduction of the Inhumans, a race of super-humans that will be getting their own movie on November 2, 2018. They have hinted that Skye and her father could be Inhumans…

The Originals Season 2 Episode 8 Review: “The Brothers That Care Forgot”

25 November 2014 12:42 PM, PST

Rebekah returned with baby Hope on The Originals last night.  Since it is Thanksgiving week, I wish I could say it was under better circumstances but nothing’s ever so easy when it comes to the Mikaelson family. Esther’s closing in on Rebekah despite the supposedly strong spells used to conceal her and, in turn, Hope is in danger once again.  Rebekah thought she was doing the best thing for the baby in calling Elijah for help, and normally she’d be right.  However, he has officially lost his calm and cool demeanor in exchange for a violent streak usually reserved for Klaus.  Even Klaus commented that the world must’ve flipped on its axis because he’s never been the level headed one between the two of them.  I’m worried about Elijah now.  This was probably Esther’s plan all along, to drive him insane with the »

BBC Teases Sherlock’s Return With New Photo

25 November 2014 12:34 PM, PST

One of the most popular TV series out there today is BBC’s Sherlock, as the show’s rabid fanbase has fallen not only for its smart and interesting reinterpretations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s mysteries but the modern version of Sherlock Homles himself (played by Emmy winner Benedict Cumberbatch). One downside to being a Sherlock fan, though, is the never-ending wait in between episodes, which, sometimes, can be close to two years. Fortunately, BBC understand fans’ pain and has given them a little taste of what is to come for Sherlock and Watson (Emmy winner Martin Freeman) with an all-new photo of the pair, teasing the show’s return. The photo was posted by the BBC One Twitter account earlier today with the hashtags “#221back, #Sherlock, #notkidding.” (Why so serious, BBC?) However, it’s the not the words accompanying the picture, but the photo itself that is most interesting, »

The Walking Dead is Heading Toward a Strange Midseason Finale

25 November 2014 12:14 PM, PST

There’s only one more episode of The Walking Dead to go this week, ending the first half of what has been, generally, a pretty great season. Showrunner Scott Gimple has been in top form for most of the first batch of episodes here, and he’s set up a rather unusual confrontation for the mid-season finale. Namely, the core gang vs. the gang at the hospital. So far, we’ve only had one really extensive look at the hospital, the episode that starred Beth and Beth alone, trapped in the strange system of indentured servitude/sex slavery that’s alluded to, but never outright explained. In short, Dawn controls a collection of cops who go out and rescue the injured of the city, but only if they’re seemingly weak and can provide some value. Sometimes that means mopping the floors. Other times, that appears to mean rape, though »
