FX's The Strain: Will It Catch On?
6 hours ago
It’s time to forget everything you know about vampires.
Although the pop culture landscape is currently littered with blood-suckers — most of them very good-looking — the vampirism found in FX’s The Strain is entirely new (and way, way creepier).
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The thriller — produced by Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Chuck Hogan (The Town) — makes no mention of vampires, in its first hour at least, which debuted Sunday at 10/9c.

In this week’s serving of The Leftovers, Meg, Tom, Mayor Lucy — lotsa people go missing.

7 hours ago
Something recapped this way comes, filled with spoilers from Salem‘s season finale. If you haven’t watched yet, bookmark this page and come again later.
If 17th century Salem was bad for witches, tonight’s episode proves it was pretty awful for fathers too, as more than one character excised their demons (both literal and figurative) by committing good old fashioned patricide.
But that’s not all that went down during the witching hour. Read on to see what happened as the first season of the Wgn America drama came to a close.

Masters of Sex Season 2 Premiere Recap: The Second Coming
7 hours ago
In the second season premiere of Showtime’s heartbreakingly brilliant Masters of Sex, Virginia marvels at how the reaction to Bill’s calamitous presentation of their study has been “like nuclear rain falling on us all.” Not only has Bill been canned, but horndog doctors have begun propositioning Virginia left and right (and even following her into the ladies’ room, for Pete’s sake!). But, by the end of “Parallax,” the stage is set for things to get much better for the illicit lovers… and much, much worse. Read on, and I’ll tell you all about it!

Rising Star Recap: If a Contestant Falls on a Reality Show, and Everyone Is Doing Their Dishes...
7 hours ago
“Blah Blah Blah,” goes one of the more memorable refrains from The Artist Formerly Known as Ke$ha. (Please take a moment of silence on behalf of the dropped dollar sign.)
On tonight’s installment of ABC’s Rising Star — which featured a trio of head-to-head contestant duels — the uni-monikered diva managed to prove even less eloquent as a reality-competition judge than she does as an “artist,” praising one contestant’s cascade of hair, getting smitten with another fella’s beard and whining about how hard it is to vote “no” to an amateur singer’s dreams — while presumably receiving »
True Blood Recap: Bar Rescue
8 hours ago
Death? Mourning? Ain’t nobody on Sunday’s True Blood got time for that. Less than 24 hours after losing Alcide, Sookie re-focused her efforts on saving her friends from the H-Vamps — and, of course, getting her flirt on.
To be fair, Sookie and Jason did place some quick, tear-jerking phone calls to Jackson and Hoyt (Hoyt!!!) to inform them of their respective losses. Hoyt’s reaction was particularly heartbreaking, not only because he loved his crazy mama, but because Jason had to pretend like they didn’t know each other. »
