Rookie Blue Recap: Father Doesn't Know Best — But Does Sam?

58 minutes ago

Christopher Hayden, you’re a bad, bad dad.

Gilmore Girls vet David Sutcliffe plays really against type on Thursday night’s Rookie Blue as an abusive, overly controlling, super-strict father (to Orphan Black‘s Zoé De Grand Maison, aka Gracie!).

How horrible is he? “It’s not an appropriate shirt,” has never sounded so disturbing. And he makes his daughter sleep in a freezer in the garage when she’s “bad.” (Poor Gracie — from one crazy dad to another.)

1 hour ago

After uncovering so many of Wayward Pines‘ far-out secrets in recent weeks, it would seem that this Thursday we uncovered its first dull episode.

RelatedMatt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Wayward PinesBlast From the Past

I mean, as entertainingly awkward as it is to watch Hope Davis play matchmaker to high school kids and then nudge them to hook up — and as fun as it is to get There’s Something About Mary flashbacks whenever Matt Dillon basically tells a character, “Ah, I’m just f–kin’ with ya!” — the rest of Episode 7 (of 10) fell flat for me. And here’s why. »

Extant Season 2 Premiere Recap: Revolving Spores

1 July 2015 8:00 PM, PDT

Extant‘s Season 2 premiere falls back on the age-old cautionary tale: While the astronaut’s away, the robotics pioneers will play!

Ok, that’s not the most important takeaway from the CBS drama’s season opener, which finds Halle Berry’s Molly confined to a psychiatric institution in the wake of some very terrible events. But her husband John’s affair stings nonetheless, especially given the way his involvement in the story ends during the course of this episode. (At least the clues to his infidelity were well-laid —apparently, just like Julie! — last season.)

Oh, and the aliens are still out for us. »
