13 Horrible Characters We Eventually Grew to Love

1 hour ago

Sometimes our favorite TV characters are the ones we absolutely hated when we first saw them on our screens. 

Maybe they were incredibly annoying or rude, or maybe they were flat-out evil. But as their shows went on and we got to know them, or when they ended up getting shiny new souls, we found that we couldn't help but love them. 

From vampires to tough bosses, here are 13 horrible characters we eventually grew to love!


1. Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Spike showed up in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 2 as a pretty nasty villain who was dead set on killing Buffy, but along the way, we saw that even he could show compassion. Plus, he had some amazing one-liners and that killer blonde hair. 2. Alex Karev, Grey's Anatomy Remember when Alex was a total jerk? This guy did not make a good first impression, but we got the chance to watch him grow up, »

Queen of the South Season 1 Episode 10 Review: Esta 'Cosa' Que Es Nuestra

4 hours ago

Nothing worked out quite as planned on Queen of the South Season 1 Episode 10 as both Teresa and Camila went on two very different Mexican adventures. 

Camila actually returned to Mexico when Epifanio swore her life was in danger after her botched hit on Birdman. After insisting she wasn’t coming back, her acquiescence was a bit of a surprise.

But not as unexpected as her tabletop romp with her estranged husband; the best part of which was the staff members' reactions in the kitchen below. Does that guy need those earplugs often?

Equally surprising was the post coital conversation between the couple afterwards…

Epifanio: Why is this the only place we are ever totally honest with one another?

Camila: I don’t know. May have something to do with the fact that we're naked.

Arrow Season 5 Promo: What About Oliver?

18 hours ago

Long live the Black Canary. 

That appears to be the motto for Arrow Season 5 and I'm quite on board with that. 

Far too often, TV shows forget their deceased characters quickly, but it's becoming crystal clear that Laurel Lance will never be forgotten. 

It must really suck to be Captain Lance. He lost Sara a few times and now he's lost Laurel. 

We know that Katie Cassidy will be sticking around the DC TV universe, thanks to her multi-show series regular contract. 

There was confirmation that Cassidy would appear on Arrow Season 5 Episode 1 in a flashback, but we didn't quite expect to witness a monument for her. 

Granted, the monument looks horrible. Hopefully the negative feedback to it will push the powers that be to do some better post-production work on it. 

Arrow Season 5 will not be all about Laurel. If the below preview makes anything clear, it's that Oliver can take care of himself. »

Fear the Walking Dead Round Table: Can Luciana Be Trusted?

23 hours ago

Can Luciana be trusted?

On Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 8, Nick found himself in some frightening predicaments and we are introduced to some new faces along the way.

Below, TV Fanatic panelists Paul Dailly, Jennifer Harold-DeShields and yours truly weigh in on the mid-season premiere.

What did you think of the show's decision to go with a character centric episode for its premiere?

Paul: It was a bit off putting. Ensemble episodes are usually the best way to premiere a new run of episodes. It was almost as if the writers had no idea the season would be broke up.

Jenn: Sometimes I don’t always like character centric episodes but using Nick was a good choice. Nick’s past life with drugs and surviving on the streets makes him perfect for a zombie apocalypse. I think to choose any other character would have been boring, I’m glad »

11 Reasons The Americans Should Win the Emmy for Best Drama

25 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT

The Primetime Emmy Award will  be televised Sunday, September 18.

There will be something new on the program this year. 

The Academy of Arts and Television Sciences finally nominated The Americans for Outstanding Drama Series, and we're here to share why it should win.

Tyrant Season 3 Episode 8 Review: Ask for the Earth

25 August 2016 2:48 AM, PDT

Unfortunately for the people of Abuddin, it's not always the better angels of a leader's nature that win out. 

Of course, Barry's angels are arguing against some pretty insistent voices on Tyrant Season 3 Episode 8. Molly may look all better to the casual observer, but it's all just a facade.

And it doesn't help that military advisor General Maloof is blood thirsty and power hungry.

Watch Tyrant Season 3 Episode 8 Online

What exactly was the tipping point for the interim president? His tenure started out with so much optimism, basically channeling Mandela. Was Emma's death alone what caused him to change course? 

Molly's reappearance pushed him over the edge and into the abyss. His guilt isn't just over Emma, although that's certainly a huge component. But his guilt over the affair with Daliyah (and likely his abandonment of the family in Tyrant Season 2) had just as big of an impact. Maybe even more. »

Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 8 Review: eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12

25 August 2016 12:12 AM, PDT

For anyone who thought that Elliot inherited all of the unhinged genes in the Alderson family, well... Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 8 certainly cleared that misconception right up for you.

Darlene has been spiraling all season, in Elliot's absence, and "Successor" displayed the apex of that spiraling: cold-blooded murder.

The show has done a great, subtle job of hinting at Darlene slowly losing it since the very beginning of Mr. Robot Season 2.

In my review of Mr. Robot Season 2 Episode 3, I specifically wondered whether Darlene might be capable of murdering Mrs. Romero, given her reaction to Mobley saying that Mrs. Romero saw him at the house shortly before her son was found dead. In retrospect, that's some great foreshadowing and a wonderfully subtle performance on Carly Chaikin's part.

I was a little bit disappointed that Darlene's victim was such a random character. Susan Jacobs' importance always felt like a bit of a retcon, »

Suits Season 6 Episode 7 Review: Shake the Trees

24 August 2016 7:07 PM, PDT

Things are not looking to good for Mike on Suits Season 6 Episode 7. 

His deal fell through, Kevin is pissed at him, and Gallo is threatening to make things a whole lot worse. 

What will be his next move?

So far he doesn't actually know his deal fell through, and we have to wonder if Harvey will tell him right away, or put it off while he tries to find another way to get it back on the table. It's safe to say if there is another way, no matter how remote, Harvey will find it. 

But, Mike has other problems. If he doesn't get out, he better damn well hope that Harvey can get Gallo out. It was bad enough when Mike just had to deal with Gallo, but what happens if Gallo makes good on his threat and tells Kevin? That's going to make things pretty uncomfortable for the next two years. »

Survivor's Remorse: Renewed for Season 4!

24 August 2016 11:59 AM, PDT

Starz has done it again!

The network announced today that it has ordered a fourth season of the critically-acclaimed comedy series Survivor’s Remorse from executive producers Mike O’Malley, Tom Werner, LeBron James and Maverick Carter.

The series follows the life of Cam Calloway (played by Jessie T. Usher), a hard-working, young basketball star who is thrust into the limelight after signing a huge contract with a pro basketball team in Atlanta.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team at Survivor’s Remorse and what we’ve built,” said LeBron James.

“The show grew so much this year, attracting new fans and reaching new levels of popularity. I want to thank all the fans who’ve made ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ a success and the team at Starz for all of their support.”

“We are thrilled to renew Survivor’s Remorse for a fourth season,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. »

Nashville Season 5: When Will It Premiere?

24 August 2016 8:53 AM, PDT

Mark your calendars, Nashville Fanatics.

We can now confirm when you can next spend time in television's favorite Tennessee city.

Following the still-shocking decision by Cmt to pick up the former ABC series for Season 5, that cable network has announced that Nashville will return on January 5, 2017.

The drama has been ordered for 22 episodes from studio Lionsgate and a deal has been struck with Hulu when it comes to those who wish to watch Nashville online.

New episodes will premiere on Cmt and then be available on Hulu the following day. (The new season begins production next month.)

So it's all great news, right?

Not quite...

According to Entertainment Weekly, Connie Britton has only signed up for 10 episodes.

She may very well leave halfway through Season 5, though producers and executives are obviously hopeful that a deal can be worked out.

Hayden Panettiere, meanwhile, is on board for the entire season.

The Vampire Diaries Alum Heads to The Flash

24 August 2016 4:03 AM, PDT

Todd Lasance is sticking around The CW.

The Australian actor, best known to American audiences as Julian on The Vampire Diaries Season 7, has landed a juicy role on The Flash Season 3.

According to various outlets, Lasance will come on board the beloved series as The Rival, a character from the DC Comics universe who is a self-made, black-suited speedster.

Look for him to make his debut on The Flash Season 3 premiere, which is set to sprint away on Tuesday, October 4 at 8/7c.

Aside from The Vampire Diaries, Lasance’s television fumes includes Spartacus: War of the Damned and Home and Away.

The Rival is simply the latest addition of foes who will go up against Barry and company this fall.

Halt and Catch Fire Season Premiere Review: Sisters Doin' It for Themselves

24 August 2016 2:50 AM, PDT

No matter where you go, there you are.

Yep, that's an annoying phrase, but it still holds true as as we take a bit of a time jump at the beginning of Halt and Catch Fire Season 3 Episode 1.

It's 1986 and Mutiny has been successfully ensconced in what will become a very busy Silicon Valley for about six months.

Watch Halt and Catch Fire Season 3 Episode 1 Online

There is a lot of room in the new digs, and a lot of new faces. Mutiny's customer base has expanded and there's a celebration for 100,000 users, a mainframe computer, and the expansion of John Bosworth's family. He has a new grandson.

But even as well as everything is going, there are still problems, and many followed them to California. Not that you can tell they're in California, just like it's not blatantly obvious the show takes place in 1986.

Dead of Summer Season 1 Episode 9 Review: Home Sweet Home

What the heck just happened?

I think we can all say after Dead of Summer Season 1 Episode 9 that we will never trust a pretty blonde girl ever again, right?

Watch Dead of Summer Season 1 Episode 9 Online

Turns out, Amy wasn't possessed after all. At least her behavior wasn't. She was the person who killed Cricket, Blotter, and Joel for Malphus, and now, Deb, too.

I guess I'll have to do this myself.

Malphus/Amy Permalink: I guess I'll have to do this myself. Added: August 24, 2016

That has to be one of the best plot twists in recent TV history. The girl that we all thought was innocent, that was unfairly being persecuted by Holyoke, was actually the one trying to summon Malphus. Who would've suspected her?

My disappointment stems from the fact that Amy was my favorite for all of the reasons that she decided to go down this dark path. »
