Outlander Recap: No Fox Given

2 hours ago

Need to catch up? Check out last week’s Outlander post mortem here.

Cram in one last croissant and pack up your petit fours, because the Frasers are putting Paris in their rearview in this week’s Outlander. Claire and Jamie return to Scotland hoping for a respite from the tiresome-yet-terrifying politics that have plagued them in the City of Lights… and instead run directly into new tiresome-yet-terrifying politics — only this time, in plaid!

2 hours ago

Warning: This post contains spoilers for both Saturday’s episode of Outlander and a plot point that would take place in a potential third season of the Starz series. If you don’t wanna know, it’s time to go!

She’s baaaack.

Nell Hudson surprised viewers of Starz’s Outlander — and readers of the Diana Gabaldon novels on which the series is based — by showing up as malevolent meddler Laoghaire in Sunday’s episode.

Know who else was shocked at the young Scot’s return? Hudson herself.

“I was surprised, too!” the actress tells TVLine. “Because she’s not in the book! »

Outcast Review: Cinemax's Exorcism Drama Possessed of Potential, at Least

9 hours ago

Aw, hell. Since Cinemax’s new supernatural drama, Outcast, is based on The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s comic-book series of the same name, I had great expectations going into the premiere (June 3, 10/9c, and already streaming). Why wouldn’t I? I love The Walking Dead and all things scary, and am a big fan of Patrick Fugit, who stars as Kyle Barnes, a tortured soul bedeviled by demons since he was a kid.

Unfortunately, I only liked rather than loved the first episode. Fugit is certainly solid as our haunted hero, »

Performer of the Week: Outlander's Caitriona Balfe

The Performer | Caitriona Balfe

The Show | Outlander

The Episode | “Faith” (May 21)

The Performance | Note to Best Actress Emmy presenters, whoever you turn out to be: Balfe’s first name is pronounced “Katrina,” and you’re going to need to know that if Powers That Nominate have even passing knowledge of Saturday’s Outlander. Because Balfe turned in a performance that was raw and almost too real, diving to the nadir of Claire’s grief over losing her child and then staying there for an hour that was emotionally exhausting — in the best possible way.

The Voice: 8 Easy Fixes to Stop the NBC Juggernaut's Ratings Slide

27 May 2016 6:47 PM, PDT

Don’t start writing an obit for NBC’s The Voice anytime soon. With an average of 13.3 million viewers and a 3.4 rating in the coveted 18-49 demo, its audience is still as big as Kanye’s ego.

Still, numbers for this week’s Season 10 finale — 10.4 million total viewers and a 2.1 demo rating for Alisan Porter’s win – were down 18 and 28 percent from Jordan Smith’s coronation a season prior. And if those declines don’t make exec producer Mark Burnett a teensy bit nervous, he need only look at the way prior reality behemoths American Idol and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? »

27 May 2016 1:28 PM, PDT

iZombie won’t be back in our lives until 2017, but star Rose McIver can already say one thing with certainty as we head towards Season 3: “No one wants to get cast as Liv’s love interest. They know where they’re going.”

Outlander Au Revoir: Production Designer Jon Gary Steele Dishes Secrets of the Series' French Sets

27 May 2016 1:07 PM, PDT

Given that Outlander‘s Paris episodes were beset by smallpox, violent attacks, prison stays and a gut-wrenching stillbirth, can you blame Jamie and Claire Fraser for wanting to scurry back to Scotland as quickly as possible?

But the one thing we will miss about Season 2’s French foray? The Starz drama’s lavish sets, created by a team headed by production designer Jon Gary Steele.

X-Men vs. Apocalypse: Relive Their Previous Battles on the Small Screen

27 May 2016 9:58 AM, PDT

X-Men: Apocalypse, now in theaters, marks the first big-screen clash between Professor Xavier’s students and their biblically named nemesis. Meanwhile, fans of the multiple X-Men TV series have been watching this battle play out for decades.

RelatedX-Men Update: Fox ‘Definitely Pursuing Long-Running’ Series

The ongoing mutant melee dates all the way back to 1993, when Apocalypse was introduced in the first season of Fox Kids’ X-Men: The Animated Series. Though he remained a disturbing presence throughout the series’ five-season run, it wasn’t until Season 4 (1995) that he put his most diabolical plan into action.

Red Nose Day 2016: Game of Thrones' Ramsay Sings, 11 Other Key Moments

26 May 2016 8:32 PM, PDT

If you’re a reindeer named Rudolph, every day is Red Nose Day. For the rest of us, it’s an annual celebrity telethon for children on NBC — and as we all saw on Thursday, it can get weird.

And we mean “weird” in the best way, of course. $30.7 million raised in the name of helping children on a global scale is nothing to thumb your (red) nose at.

Hosted by Craig Ferguson, Red Nose Day 2k16 was a two-hour parade of stars and sketches, and while not every gamble paid off (poor Malin Akerman!), at least it was all for a good cause. »
