NCIS: Los Angeles Season 7 Episode 15 Review: “Matryoshka”
The title of this week’s episode of NCIS: Los Angeles literally refers to “little matron dolls” in Russian. The events of the episode would suggest a parallel to members of NCIS, and what they’re willing to do for their friends. It wouldn’t be a Russian-centric episode without a storyline involving Callen, Arkady, or both of them. In the first half of a two-part series of episodes, we’re getting the trifecta. NCIS’s old contact/enemy Anatoli Kirkin is kidnapped. Callen doesn’t even wait for Hetty’s approval before insisting they find Kirkin, since at the very least, he is the devil they

Five Unforgettable Episodes of the Twilight Zone
Starting way back in 1959, there was a TV show that crept int people’s subconscious and stayed burrowed there for fifty plus years. A show that dares to be unlike any other show that had ever come before it. A show so ahead of its time, it is still inspiring people to create new, scary, bold science fiction to this day. That show was The Twilight Zone. Each episode would be a stand-alone story that somehow melded drama, science fiction, and horror perfectly. There are still shows and movies that rip many of the ideas from these stories off. Here are

Jane the Virgin Season 2 Episode 11 Review: “Chapter Thirty-Three”
In all of the whackiness that is Jane the Virgin, it’s good to remember what the core of this show is about: love. Sometimes it’s romantic love, sometimes it’s love for family, but it’s always what holds the fabric together. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s only fitting everyone gets in a little loving. After having that steamy dream about her advisor Jonathan Chavez, Jane can’t stop thinking about him. Her nighttime dreams turn into daydreams until she eventually slips up and mentions his name during a particularly steamy reading of her work. Jonathan brushes it off, and

New Girl: Megan Fox’s Arrival Causes Problems for Schmidt and Cece
Could the new girl on New Girl create some problems for Schmidt and Cece? That’s certainly the case in tonight’s episode, titled “Reagan,” which introduces Megan Fox’s Reagan, a pharmaceutical sales who may end up moving into the loft after she meets Nick. However, it’s not any type of romance between Reagan and Nick that will be the source of drama in tonight’s installment; instead, it’s her history with Cece that causes a fight between the pair. As many media outlets have widely reported (and as the promo below shows), Cece and Reagan hooked up one time years ago, and that news makes

Five Book Series That Would Make Great Shows
Not sure if anyone of you have noticed lately, but a lot of great TV has come from book series’. From Game of Thrones to True Detective, it seems anytime someone mines a really well written book series, they end up with a really well written (and darn good) TV show. And once you start thinking about all the centuries of amazing fiction out there, you realize that book series are just perfect for mining for good ideas. So with that in mind, here are five book series that would make great shows. The Chronicles of Preydain (The Book of Three)

Samantha Bee’s ‘Full Frontal’ With Turtle-Chomping Alligator Debuts On TBS – Review
Yes, it really looked like that alligator was chomping on that flipper-flapping turtle standing in for Jeb Bush, as Samantha Bee tore through her first show. She announced at the outset of Full Frontal With Samantha Bee how tough it had been, being on the sidelines all these months during the run-up to the Presidential primaries or, as she put it, “the most deranged political sh!tshow” of all time. Of course, the former Daily Show With Jon Stewart correspondent has had… »
‘The Bachelor’ Recap: Hurricane Olivia Makes Landfall
There’s a point in almost every season of “The Bachelor” — before we get down to the last few episodes when it becomes “romantic,” but after the first few installments when we’re done laughing at the fact that someone’s occupation is “Chicken Enthusiast” — when the remaining contestants become weirdly melancholy. Maybe it’s because they’ve been trapped inside for too long. Maybe they reconcile themselves with the fact that they probably aren’t going to win. Maybe they suddenly realize they’re trying to marry a complete stranger on a nationally televised dating show. Whatever the reason, this week, the ladies get uncomfortable, boring and sad. But it also turns out that stir-craziness and self-awareness happen to be the perfect recipe for desperation and drama. Who knew?
This episode picks up where last week’s left off with the lingering question: Will Ben revoke Olivia’s rose? »

Samantha Bee Trashes White House Race In ‘Full Frontal’ Debut
Last month, appearing at TCA, The Daily Show’s longest-running correspondent Samantha Bee explained her highly anticipated new TBS late-night show will "take stories we don't think receive enough attention and stab them with the hot poker of comedy." Based on tonight’s Full Frontal launch, she appears to have meant stories no longer receiving enough attention on late night TV programs – politics. Her show was almost entirely devoted to catching up on the presidential… »
Five Utterly Unforgettable Breaking Bad Moments
From the very first frame of Walter White in his underwear, to the final shot of the camera panning overhead as he lay dying, Breaking Bad was one of the most brilliantly crafted and expertly executed television shows of all time. The lines between who was good and who was bad were always getting blurred, and it was the kind of show that always threw a curveball every couple of episodes to keep the audience eager and on their feet. While it could be said the whole show was one, giant, unforgettable moment, we thought it might be fun to

TV Review: ‘Full Frontal With Samantha Bee’
Under Jon Stewart, “The Daily Show” had an enviable track record in developing talent, with many of the baby birds flying off to bigger solo ventures. Enter Samantha Bee, a bright light as a correspondent, who makes a relatively easy leap into the unfortunately named “Full Frontal,” a weekly half-hour on TBS. Although somewhat misleadingly billed as breaking up the late-night boys club (she actually airs in primetime, before “Conan”), Bee delivered a promising and pointed debut, demonstrating that when it comes to political satire, she can sting with the best of them.
Introduced with a multi-network launch on the Turner properties, “Full Frontal” doesn’t exactly try to reinvent the wheel. Indeed, about the only difference between her one-woman-with-clips shtick and that of John Oliver’s HBO program is that he sits, while she stands.
Still, a show like this is defined by its zingers, and as Bee noted near the outset, »

Saying “I’m lucky enough to have support and backup from Jenni, Judd and the whole Girls gang,” she used the opportunity to draw attention to the fact that… »

Castle Season 8 Episode 9 Review: Tone Death has A Few Wrong Notes
Castle Season 8 Episode 9, “Tone Death” is the first episode after finally ending the forced separation between the once detective but now Captain Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and the famous mystery writer turned unfamous P.I. Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion). Many viewers have held out hope that this would be the turning point of ABC’s Castle becoming more like the show they’d been watching for seven seasons. In particular many have missed the sense of Caskett, the way that Castle and Beckett worked and played together as partners before Castle season 8. Did the new show runners Alexi Hawley and

Five Truly Unforgettable SNL Music Performances
The cool thing about using the word unforgettable for a list is, that can put things into two categories. Both good and bad.

A few are epic and a few are embarrassing, and that is half the fun. Here are five truly unforgettable SNL music performances.

After being possessed by the Black Mercy last week, this week’s Supergirl picks up right where we left off as Kara has to fight a parasitic alien that mentally traps her in a dream world. While I am more familiar with Starro as opposed to the Black Mercy, it seems that they almost have similar powers so seeing this episode took me back to seeing Starro in the DC animated shows as a kid. I’m always a sucker for “What If” and “Dream” stories and this episode was no exception. Mostly because we got to see so much more of
