Franklin & Bash Season 4 Episode 10 Review: “Red or Black”

4 hours ago

What a great season of Franklin & Bash this has been. I’m glad that this season, with so much change, has held true to the spirit of the show and proved to still be so much fun! This week, Peter and Jared were called into action to save Stanton from a sticky situation in Vegas. First of all, I just have to say how much I love the relationship between Stanton and the boys. Stanton’s own nephew works for the firm, but he called Peter and Jared when he was in trouble. So you can imagine their shock when they arrive and Stanton predicts his own death in 48 hours. Of course, this threw Peter and Jared for a loop, and sent them after him to Las Vegas, where their new best friend Dan Mundy got them into some trouble of their own. Meanwhile, Swatello was certain that Jared had run off… »

Forever Season 1 Episode 6 Review: “The Frustrating Thing About Psychopaths”

4 hours ago

Finally! Episode 6 of Forever was a tremendous improvement over the past few episodes. I could finally feel it coming together as a series and I’ve got to say. All along, I’ve been saying that this show is good, but it showed shades of greatness with this week’s installment. This week, our heroes begin their tale with a bleeding package. Upon further investigation, they have a serial killer on their hands who is copying famous murderers throughout history. Upon even Further investigation,  it was based not on the historical killings, but instead on comic books retelling said killings. After their suspicions first landed on a teenager obsessed with death and killing, they later befell the correct killer- the teenager’s father. Guess psychopathy can be hereditary. This show is made much better when it utilizes all it’s weapons. Of course, Gruffudd and De La Garza are always strong as leads, »

Sons of Anarchy Season 7 Episode 7 Review: “Greensleeves”

14 hours ago

The longer these final-season episodes of Sons of Anarchy get, the less it seems actually happens in between the opening and closing shots of each hour (which in this case, is literally a 60-minute running time). Where it seemed last week was stalling until it could get to “Greensleeves”, this week’s episode seemed like it was twiddling its thumbs until it could get to its next narrative markers: the bloody face of Bobby Elvis and the image of Juice’s blank face standing in prison. For either one, it takes a whole lot of nothing happening for us to get to those moments – and in between SoA wasting time playing street politics (badly, I might add) and Unser slowly, slowly starting to piece together what Gemma is hiding, there’s nothing but fists, cigarette smoke, and overt set-up for the final act. Top that whole package off with another »

Supernatural May Introdouce a New Spin-Off Series Over Multiple Episodes

14 hours ago

Television networks love to take long-running, successful shows and help them launch spin-off or companion series that can also bring in good ratings. Last season, The CW tried to do this with Supernatural, in the hopes of creating a new spin-off series dubbed Supernatural: Bloodlines, but the plan failed miserably as neither fans nor network executives were fans of the backdoor pilot that aired as an episode of Supernatural Season 9. However, according to TVLine, the failure of Bloodlines hasn’t lessened the enthusiasm for a Supernatural spin-off from the show’s creative team or CW executives, as the show and network may try to launch another new series in the near future over the course of multiple Supernatural episodes. “I think maybe one lesson would be to take a couple episodes to introduce some of your new characters to the fandom so the fandom could get used to them and is rooting for… »

All the Fun and Ridiculous Speed Powers We Have to Look Forward to in The Flash

16 hours ago

We’re only three episodes into The CW’s Flash so far, and as such, we’ve only seen a fraction of what Barry Allen is capable of. We know that he’s really fast and can heal rather quickly, but this early on we’re only scratching the surface of the true potential of The Flash and his speed-based powers. This isn’t going to be exactly like Smallville where Clark Kent slowly figures out all his different abilities from strength to heat vision to X-ray vision to super hearing and so on, but the central “speed” concept of the Flash has unlocked many, many sub-abilities as the character has evolved over the years in the comics. The one “outside the box” thing we’ve seen so far was this past week when Allen blurred his face by vibrating quickly in order to prevent his father from recognizing him at the prison. »

The Two Biggest Book Changes in Game of Thrones Season 5 That We Know About (So Far)

16 hours ago

If you’re dodging leaked Game of Thrones set shots in an effort to avoid the pending action of season 5, I don’t blame you. I will say, however, you’re missing out on the Sand Snakes nipple armor, which really is a sight to behold. But more importantly, the set shots have revealed two enormous changes from the books so far, taking characters either further than they’ve been in the novels, or to different places entirely. Book and show spoilers follow. The two main diverging paths are from the Lannister brothers, Tyrion and Jaime. In the books, Tyrion spends a good long while trying to reach Daenerys Targaryen, and his adventure takes him to some odd places. He meets up with Master Illyrio, who sheltered the Targaryen siblings back when the show started. He meets Griff and Young Griff, who turn out to be lost lord Jon Connington and a not-dead… »

Against All Odds, Marvel’s Agents of Shield Has Captured the ‘Firefly Effect’

17 hours ago

Something struck me today as I was watching my DVR-ed Marvel’s Agents of Shield from last night, I didn’t really care about what was going on. I mean, the larger plots are vaguely interesting, but I’m not too terribly interested in figuring out which Marvel supervillain Skye’s father will be, or learning that Coulson’s obsession with scribbling nonsense will eventually lead into Age of Ultron. And yet, I really like the show all the same. I just enjoy watching it, mainly due to the core characters and the excellent writing that brings them to life. And really, it reminds me more and more of another show that Shield has always wanted to emulate, Firefly. The two shows obviously have Whedons in common. Joss Whedon created, wrote and directed Firefly while he executives produces Shield and his young brother Jed, runs it day-to-day with a team. »

Homeland Actress Morena Baccarin to Recur on Gotham

17 hours ago

Morena Baccarin, who played Jessica Brody, the wife of turned Pow Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and mother of their two kids on Homeland, has landed a recurring role in Fox’s Gotham, and the people that she will be dealing with may be even crazier than Carrie Mathison. Baccarin will reportedly play Dr. Leslie Thompkins, who begins working at Arkham Asylum and soon finds herself in Jim Gordon’s orbit. Although her role will be recurring throughout Season 1 of Gotham, Baccarin is slated to become a series regular if the show gets picked up for a second season (which, unless its ratings suddenly tank, we all know it will). According to TVLine, “Thompkins is a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of the late Thomas and Martha Wayne. She is determined to use her skills to aid Gotham’s most in need, which currently means working at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s… »

Netflix Orders Bill Burr Animated Series “F Is for Family”

18 hours ago

Netflix is adding another animated comedy to its ever-growing list of original series. Based on the comedy of Bill Burr, F Is for Family will be a new, six-part series, premiering in 2015. Burr, along with Laura Dern and Justin Long, will all be voice actors on F Is For Family, which will be Netflix’s second animated comedy after BoJack Horseman, which debuted back in August (and was then renewed for a second season very soon after). BoJack features notable names like Will Arnet, Alison Brie, Patton Oswalt, and Aaron Paul as members of its voice cast. “Bill Burr’s stand-up specials are wildly popular for us worldwide, and we’re looking forward to presenting his nostalgic and unflinching take on the family comedy in this original, animated series,” said Netflix original content vp Cindy Holland. “[It's] the show I’ve always wanted to do,” said Burr. “It captures all the »

How The Flash Is the Perfect Combination of Arrow and Smallville

18 hours ago

The Flash is easily the biggest success so far of the fall TV season. Critically beloved and a huge ratings success for The CW, the series has gotten off to a start that many hoped it would but few could have actually predicted. So how has The Flash been so successful? I think I have the answer: it’s the perfect combination of Arrow and Smallville. Leading up to its premiere and in every episode since, many critics have compared The Flash to Arrow, calling it a lighter, more bright and fun superhero series than the darker, grittier one that it spun-off from. However, even though the two series exist in the same universe (and will even have crossover episodes, the first of which will happen next week when Felicity shows up on The Flash to help Barry battle Captain Cold), The Flash, right now at least, bears a much greater resemblance to Smallville, »

Why Was There a Bear on the Glee Set Yesterday?

18 hours ago

It looks like Glee is getting really creative for its sixth and final season, as you can see from the photo above that was taken on the set of the Fox musical series yesterday. From the looks of it, it appears that Glee will have quite the guest star in Season 6, one that I don’t think any of the show’s fans could have predicted: a bear. The picture was posted on Twitter this morning by Glee star Lea Michele, who wrote, “Got to work w/ this sweet guy yesterday at Glee. First I was little scared & then we became the best of friends!” Something tells me that she’s not talking about Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, or Max Adler (who will be a recurring star throughout Season 6 of Glee, reprising his role of Dave Karofsky, who we last saw back in Season 3). Got to work w/ this…

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Episode 5 Review: ”A Hen in the Wolf House”

19 hours ago

Last night’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was an enormous game-changer as it introduced Marvel fan favorite, Bobbi Morse a.k.a. Mockingbird and went deeper into Kyle MacLachlan’s Doctor character. Ever since they announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Mockingbird was coming to the show, in addition to the casting of Adrianne Palicki, this has been my most anticipated episode of the season. Did Palicki’s introduction episode live up to my expectations? It absolutely did and then some. This is one of the best castings the show has done and to look at it from a bigger picture: we now have a phenomenal actress part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a great character. I think it was pretty obvious that Bobbi being the head of Hydra Security was just a cover as there was no way these show-runners would introduce one of the »

Last Night Gave Us the Worst Moment in the History of Sons of Anarchy

20 hours ago

I’m not sure how much more of this I can take. Sons of Anarchy, in recent years, has been increasingly reliant on bad luck and bad decisions to move the plot forward, much of it centered around Gemma. At the end of last season (spoilers), Gemma killed Tara because no one bothered to call and tell her that Jax had made a deal to protect the club, and now? Things are only getting worse. Last night was probably the low point of the entire series for me. More coincidence abounded as the Sons found themselves in a situation where they needed Gemma to go up to the cabin to help them out with a completely unrelated problem that had nothing to do with her secret or  Juice. Yet, it just so happened that the entire affair was set up in a way that it looked like “going to the »

First Teaser Trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron Will Debut During Next Week’s Agents of Shield

20 hours ago

If you’re already enjoying the so-far stellar second season of Agents of Shield on ABC, you may find yourself even happier next week when the cinematic world of Marvel collides with the television world (even though all these characters are technically in the same Marvel universe). While I’m not talking about another guest appearance by Samuel Jackson’s Nick Fury or Jamie Alexander’s Lady Sif from Thor, this news may be even better. Marvel has announced that the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron will premiere during next week’s episode of Agents of Shield on Oct. 28. Although it won’t be released until next May (May 1, to be exact), Avengers: Age of Ultron is already one of the most talked-about films coming out in 2015, and why wouldn’t it be? The first Avengers film brought in more than $200 million at the U. »

The Flash Season 1 Episode 3 Review: ”Things You Can’t Outrun”

20 hours ago

The CW’s new hit series continues to run at all the right places as last night’s episode of The Flash was another stellar episode that featured the introduction of Robbie Amell (cousin of Arrow’s Stephen Amell) as DC ComicsRonnie Raymond a.k.a. the future Firestorm. The show dives into flashbacks again in this episode as we get to see what happened the night the particle accelerator exploded and we see it from the perspective of S.T.A.R. Labs with Harrison, Cisco, Caitlin and Ronnie. I was hoping for a few more scenes between Ronnie and Caitlin, but this is just the beginning so I can remain patient for now. Amell and Panabaker really clicked and had great chemistry between each other so much that it hurt even more when they were separated. I’m onboard with Amell’s portrayal of Ronnie who is »

Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Episode 5 Review: “The Weeping Lady”

20 hours ago

You have to wonder what later seasons of Sleepy Hollow are going to look like once they’ve exhausted most of the recognizable horror monsters and myths. In the meantime, if “creepy” is what the crew is aiming for, then well done. There are few cross-generational and cross-cultural figures in folklore that I’ve encountered in my lifetime as haunting as The Weeping Lady (La llorona, as I was introduced to her as a child). Not so surprisingly, the writing staff finds a way to execute “The Weeping Lady” in a totally believable Sleepy Hollow kind of way. Again, it’s every bit the supernatural procedural you don’t want to watch at night that The X-Files was, and it’s smartly integrated in a way that adds dimensions to our main characters. Mary, the jilted lover who haunts Sleepy Hollow as the episode’s titular monster, is one of »

Toys R Us Pulls Breaking Bad Toys Amid Parental Pressure

20 hours ago

And who says Change.org petitions don’t get anything done? Earlier this week we reported that Toys R Us was under fire from angry parents who didn’t think it was appropriate that toys from the mature-rated TV show Breaking Bad were on sale in what is generally considered to be a toy story for children. Toys R Us responded by saying that the toys were separated out from “younger” targeted action figures, and clearly labeled that they were for ages 15 and up. The Heisenberg toy, for example, came with a tiny bag of meth and some cash, and the idea was that the toys would encourage children to either watch the show, or start dealing drugs. Now, Toys R Us has caved, and has removed the Breaking Bad toys from their shelves. “Let’s just say, the action figures have taken an indefinite sabbatical,” Toys R Us said in a statement. »

Ever Wonder If the Actors on Mad Men Are Actually Drunk During Scenes? They Very Well Might Be

20 hours ago

With all the drinking, smoking, and other shenanigans always occurring on AMC’s Mad Men, it’s made me wonder once or twice if those involved are actually doing any of that stuff, “method acting” in a way, or if it’s all fake. Well, thanks to a new interview between Variety and Mad Men creator Weiner and  Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka (who plays Sally Draper on the series), it turns out that my crazy theory about the show and its actors may actually be right—apparently, some of the Mad Men actors have been drunk during scenes they’ve done. After Variety asked if Weiner or Shipka had purchased anything from the Mad Men set, Weiner admitted to buying Roger Sterling’s bar, which he said he now has in his office, leading to the exchange below. Variety: Is the bar stocked? Matthew Weiner: The bar is stocked now, »

Supernatural Season 10 Episode 3 Review: “Soul Suvivor”

21 October 2014 9:27 PM, PDT

Well, that was quick. I really expected Supernatural to take its sweet time with the Demon!Dean storyline, but they’ve already cured him of his initial demonness. Its kind of disappointing; I really wanted to see them delve deep into some Winchester conflict through the bluntness and danger of Demon!Dean but why would we do that? Pretty meh episode, but it had some good parts. It had a lot of really interesting and refreshingly-different bits (or at least they feel different; it’s hard to remember a frickin’ decade of television). Crowley saving Cas showed his desperation; his need to take care of Dean and do something with him shows that, despite his brushing off of his subjects mockery and self-immolation, he is worried. I like Worried!Crowley. Cas being back in the game is a lovely development in its own right. We all knew that he wasn »

Person of Interest Season 4 Episode 5 Review: “Prophets”

21 October 2014 9:25 PM, PDT

Oh my god, I am so excited to be here. I love Person of Interest so much, but never live. I feel like I’ve taken my life to a whole new level. That’s a little extreme. Forgive me; I’m new here and I am so glad to have a reason to watch this show all the time. What’s always fascinating about this show to me is how much the characters drive my enjoyment. Now, I know what you’re thinking, and you’re right (whoever you are): aren’t characters supposed to drive the enjoyment of a show? The answer is, of course, yes! Yes they are! But how many times do that actually happen? How many times have we seen a show get wrapped up in plot and forget that nobody really cares? Lost was a show that was a character drama wrapped in »
