The 100 Season 2 Episode 5 Review: “Human Trials”

7 hours ago

Gosh, The 100 is really good this season. Don’t you think? You probably think I’m beating a dead horse by saying this week in and week out, but I just think the show may not be getting the recognition it deserves, so I’m doing everything I can. This week on The 100, Bellamy, Octavia, and Clarke all return to the adults…only to immediately turn around and go after Finn and Murphy. Finn is seeing red, so Murphy is the voice of reason (yes, you read that right). Chancellor Kane furthers his pursuit of peace with the grounders  and Jasper and Monty (and Lincoln) run into some issues at Mt. Weather. For starters, I really like the fact that they don’t feel like they have to include every character in every episode. Of course, it helps that the groups are starting to re-form and grow larger, and more »

Was Cheers Season 5 The Worst Season?

13 hours ago

When people talk about the worst season of Cheers (which yes, I realize is a conversation starter only for television nerds like myself), most will point out the most obvious. Season ten, when the show was sputtering out of gas, relying on another Bar Wars and Rebecca/Sam tease to slog through twenty-plus episodes; season six, when Shelley Long’s absence created a massive hole in the show’s cast and stories; or season nine, which centered on one of the show’s worst plot lines, the Robin/Rebecca/Sam triangle. But for my money, season five – Shelley Long’s last – is far and away the worst season of the show, and for one reason: Diane. Maybe the writers of Cheers were bitter over losing her, or maybe the writers just didn’t like the Diane character, but she goes out on a low note in Cheers‘ fifth season. Just »

Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones Returning for Final Season of Parks and Recreation

13 hours ago

After just finding out that we will definitely see Jon Hamm’s Ed again in the seventh and final season of Parks and Recreation, it has now been confirmed that two other characters, who have had slightly longer tenures on the show than Ed, will also be showing up in Pawnee during Season 7. As first reported by TVLine, Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will reprise their roles as Chris and Ann during the NBC sitcom’s swan song. Right now, the actors are only scheduled to appear in one episode. “We made a list of people that we needed to see back one more time,” Parks and Recreation showrunner Mike Schur said in an interview with TVLine earlier this week, when he was asked about whether or not Lowe and Jones would be back. “We didn’t get everybody we wanted, because some people had other obligations. But a lot of the people… »

Black-ish Season 1 Episode 8 Review: “Oedipal Triangle”

14 hours ago

Building conflict within families can be difficult for comedies (especially young ones like Black-ish); the natural tendency to make light of everything for laughs can turn examinations of family tropes or misunderstandings into bitter affairs, ultimately undermining the always-cathartic conclusions with the pure amount of vitriol that precedes it. One might say “Oedipal Triangle” avoids this by refusing to resolve its central conflict – the friction between Ruby, Dre’s mother, and Rainbow – but it almost makes the rest of the episode even more bitter, turning the supposed lesson of the episode from “husband helps bridge the gap between mother and wife through compromise” into “people who don’t get along will never get along” – which may be a little more realistic, but is nonetheless an unsatisfying conclusion to a story that appeared to be building towards some kind of meaningful conclusion. There’s not really much else to this episode besides Ruby… »

Should We Be Worried About Community Season 6?

14 hours ago

Ever since the Season 2 episode of Community, “Paradigms of Human Memory,” fans have been using Abed’s “Six seasons and a movie!” call (which is hilariously how long he thought NBC’s short-lived superhero drama The Cape would last) as their mantra. Despite low-ratings, shortened season orders, departing cast members, the firing and then re-hiring of Dan Harmon, and, not to mention, the never-knowing of just when the show would actually premiere, all Community lovers (myself included) wanted was for the series to last six seasons, and then, if we got the movie afterward, that would just be a nice bonus. All that hope seemed to disappear this past May when NBC announced that Community had been cancelled, meaning that the show would be cut short and never make it to its goal of six seasons, much less a movie, but then Yahoo stepped in to revive the sitcom, giving »

Arrow Season 3 Episode 7 Review: ”Draw Back Your Bow”

15 hours ago

While season 3 of CW’s Arrow has so far hit their arrows on all the right places, last night’s episode wasn’t the strongest one, though it was still a very solid episode with the introduction of DC Comics’ Cupid (guest star Amy Gumenick). Out of all the Green Arrow villains that I have seen in the comics, Carrie Cutter is the one I’m least familiar with, and I was never sure if we would actually see her on the TV show. But since she was created by show-runner Andrew Kreisberg, who wrote the Green Arrow/Black Canary comic book for a very long time, the possibilities were there. Gumenick’s version of the character was very mixed for me, in both good and bad ways. I had to go back and re-read some of the Green Arrow/Black Canary comics she was in before watching this episode and personality wise, »

Mad Men Star Jon Hamm Returning for Parks and Recreation Season 7

15 hours ago

Last time we saw Leslie Knope, before she meet up with her husband Ben Wyatt, she was firing an employee named Ed, who was played in a surprise cameo role by Mad Men star Jon Hamm. Well, lucky for Ed (and for us), it has been confirmed that Hamm will be returning for at least one episode in Parks and Recreation Season 7, meaning that Leslie will somehow find herself dealing with an employee that is less competent than than Larry (Jim O’Heir) for at least a little bit longer. “If I have my way, every episode where you see events that take place before that moment will include a shot of him doing something insanely incompetent,” showrunner Mike Schur said after the show’s Season 6 finale, when he was asked about whether or not Hamm would appear again in Parks and Recreation Season 7. Hamm joins returning guest stars Megan Mullally »

James Franco, Martin Freeman & Amy Adams to Host Saturday Night Live in December

16 hours ago

Saturday Night Live, which will be hosted by Cameron Diaz this weekend, has announced the hosts for its remaining 2014 episodes. After this weekend’s show, Saturday Night Live will not return until Dec. 6 and will air three total episodes in December for its final installments of the year. When SNL resumes on Dec. 6,  James Franco will take on hosting duties for his third time before his new film The Interview, which also stars Seth Rogen and Lizzy Caplan, arrives in theaters later that month on Christmas Day. Nicki Minaj will perform as the night’s musical guest, marking her second SNL appearance. The following week, on Dec. 13, only a few days before the final film in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit series, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies hits theaters, Emmy-winning actor Martin Freeman (Sherlock, Fargo) will host Saturday Night Live for the first time with Charli Xcx »

Are Emily and Ben Flirting in These New Revenge Photos?

17 hours ago

Is Emily Thorne ready to love again or is she just playing another one of her games? It’s hard to tell from the looks of these new Revenge photos, which are from the series’ next all-new episode, “Intel,” airing Sunday, Nov. 30, at 10 p.m. The pictures in question show Emily smiling and possibly even flirting with Jack’s partner Ben (Brian Hallisay). Does this mean that Emily is having a change of heart when it comes to the small town cop, who has dreams of becoming a big shot detective, or is this all part of some scheme that she’s running (perhaps trying to tie-up any lose-ends about Conrad’s murder)? I’m guessing and hoping it’s the second option, because Ben is pretty annoying, meaning the farther away he stays from Emily, the better Revenge will be. Elsewhere in “Intel,” Jack appears to be having yet »

Predictions for House of Cards Season 3

17 hours ago

We still have no idea when we might see Frank Underwood return in House of Cards season 3, yet we know he’s coming all the same. The show has been one of Netflix’s biggest hits right alongside Orange is the New Black, and they’re content to renew it in perpetuity so long as Kevin Spacey keeps signing on year after year. The concept of the show seems like it would have to have a hard end date at some point, and now that (spoilers through present day) Frank has become president, we have to wonder where the show goes from here. Frank became president through his best bit of manipulation yet, not going so far as to do something utterly insane like orchestrating the assassination of the command in chief (or shoving a journalist in front of a train), but ending that relationship with the president believing he was a… »

The Middle Season 6 Episode 7 Review: “Thanksgiving VI”

17 hours ago

A floor sink and tiny table should’ve been reason enough for the Hecks to spend their Thanksgiving in a restaurant.  In the past, they usually celebrate holidays with extended family coming over but it’s obvious that we don’t need Molly Shannon or Norm MacDonald to make another unforgettable holiday episode of The Middle. The kids’ significant others (plus Devin Levin) join the immediate family at the $7.99 buffet.  Sue is somehow only just noticing that her dad doesn’t like Darrin.  I suppose Mike never made his digs at Darrin before when Sue was in the room, but it’s cute to see Sue so stressed over trying to make the two of them bond.  It only gets worse when Darrin tells the waiters it was Mike’s birthday so that they would sing to him.  I don’t know about you, but I also hate when that happens. »

Get Your First Look at Will, Emma, and Their Son As Jayma Mays Returns for Glee Season 6

17 hours ago

Glee fans, especially those who love Will and Emma, may need to sit down before looking at this picture. In the first first official photo we’ve gotten of Jayma Mays returning as Emma Pillsbury for Glee Season 6, not only do we get to see both her and Will happy and together, but we also are given our first look at the couple’s son, Daniel Finn Schuester, who was born in the Season 5 episode “Opening Night.” The photo, which was posted on Twitter last night by Glee star (and Mr. Will  Schuester himself) Matthew Morrison, finally provides confirmation that Mays will be returning for Glee Season 6, although it was pretty much guaranteed that she had to appear since this is the show’s final season. Now the question is how many episodes will Emma be in, especially after the news that CBS has cancelled The Millers, the comedy series which… »

House’s Hugh Laurie to Appear on HBO’s Veep

18 hours ago

Well, this is some casting news that should appeal to all political parties. After two-time Golden Globe winner and six-time Emmy nominee Hugh Laurie was spotted on the set of HBO’s Emmy-winning comedy series Veep by Baltimore Media Blog, the network confirmed that he will be appearing in the show’s upcoming fourth season. No further details about Laurie’s character were released, but it is being reported that his guest stint on Veep will be for multiple episodes. Some are speculating that he could potentially be playing the new vice president, after Selina Meyer (Emmy winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus) became the commander-in-chief in last season’s finale when Veep‘s unseen president resigned to take care of his sickly wife. According to the Baltimore Media Blog, it is very likely the Laurie is playing Selina’s campaign manager (but what would that mean for Anna Chlumsky’s Amy, who »

Fox Sets Premiere Dates for American Idol and Empire

18 hours ago

It’s hard to believe that American Idol will be entering its 14th season this coming year, but it will be and now we know when it will begin. The newest season of American Idol will kick off on Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2015 with a one-hour episode at 8 p.m. The Season 14 premiere will then continue with a two-hour installment the next night on Thursday, Jan 8, at 8 p.m. The first episodes of American Idol Season 14 will feature auditions in Kansas City, Minneapolis, Nashville, New Orleans, New York and San Francisco. All three of last year’s judges—Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry Connick Jr.—will return, although Idol alum Adam Lambert will be a special guest judge filling in for Urban during the New York auditions. One member of the Idol team who will not be returning is longtime judge and last year’s mentor Randy Jackson, who announced his »

Christmas is coming a little early for comic books fans when The CW airs The Flash and Arrow crossover event over two nights, Tuesday Dec. 2 and Wednesday Dec. 3. Well, after much hype, we now finally have our first photos from part one of the two-part crossover, which will be The Flash‘s eighth episode and be titled “Flash vs. Arrow.” Sounds pretty boring, right?

Let’s Allow Arrow, The Flash and Gotham to Invent Their Own Villains

20 hours ago

A solid four hours of my week now are taken up by different superhero shows now that they’re becoming all the rage. That would be Arrow, The Flash, Gotham and Agents of Shield, and I can only  imagine how time consuming this will get once Netflix release its stable of Marvel shows. Shield is barely a superhero show at this point with actual superpowers few and far between. It’s more of an action thriller than anything, and is good in its own right, but not really relevant to the topic today. Rather, I just got done watching this week’s Flash, where yet again Barry Allen takes on another superpowered baddie by unlocking a new speed skill like he’s allocating stat points in a video game. And after that I read a news item that Arrow will see Captain Boomerang appear on the show this season, a character which may cross… »

Let’s Grade the Big Brother 16 Houseguests

21 hours ago

It is hard to believe that the 16th season of Big Brother ended two months ago. In June, 16 people entered the Big Brother house and were cut off from the real world. This means no television, internet, or phone service. After three months of tough competition, Derrick Levasseur the undercover police office from Rhode Island took home the $500,000 prize while his Bff in the house Cody Calafiore walked away with second prize. We at TV Overmind decided to grade all 16 houseguests and see who came up at the top of the list (Nicole) and at the bottom (Devin). We will grade each participant in the following categories: Likability, Personality, Length in the House, Physical Compeititons, Mental Competitions. Joey Joey’s stay in the Big Brother house was short-lived. It was even shorter if you figure in the amount of time she decided to be Alex. Joey came into the house wanting to play Big… »

Netflix Picks Up Longmire for Season 4

19 November 2014 7:44 PM, PST

Longmire has officially been picked up for a fourth season of ten episodes by Netflix. Long seen as the logical choice and recently revealed to be in negotiations for the contract, Netflix has picked up the show and is set to shoot and air them sometime during 2015. The season will resolve the major cliffhanger that Season 3 ended on and give closure to the show’s many millions of fans, who may rejoice now that they have managed to help revive one of the most popular shows on cable television. Netflix, unlike the cable stations, is not going to discriminate against older viewers, who turned out by the million to watch the show. Subscribers are subscribers to a streaming service, and let us all be thankful that is true. Longmire, shopped around by its parent company Warner Horizon for the past several months, seems almost fated to have ended up…

Fargo’s Allison Tolman to Appear on Comedy Central’s Review

19 November 2014 3:06 PM, PST

Oh geez, this casting news will be pretty exciting for Fargo fans. Alison Tolman, the breakout star of the FX anthology series and the person who actually deserved to win Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries/Movie at the Emmys (sorry, Kathy Bates), will continue flexing her comedic muscles when she guest stars on Comedy Central’s Review. For those who haven’t had the pleasure of checking out Review yet, the Comedy Central series is a mockumentary series starring Andy Daly (Eastbound and Down) as Forrest MacNeil, a critic who reviews “real life experiences.” According to Entertainment Weekly, which first reported the casting news, Tolman will be playing “a nurse named Marisa who becomes involved in Forrest’s foray into “blackmail.'” Review will be the second comedy that Tolman, who received an Emmy nomination for her work as Deputy Molly Solverson during Fargo‘s first season, has appeared on this year. »
