One minute, somebody’s leaving your high-five hanging; five weeks later, that same somebody’s got all 10 fingers (and then some) collating your legal briefs (so to speak).
Welcome to the crazy, killer world of How to Get Away With Murder, where not only do husbands’ penises wind up on dead girls’ phones, but where every paid member of Annalise Keating’s legal team seemingly gets his or her bonus checks in carnal currency.

Parenthood Recap: Growing Pains
If Thursday’s episode of Parenthood was the first time you’d ever seen the NBC drama — well, as a side note, what have you been doing all this time? — your opinion of Amber Holt would likely be that she’s one of the most mature members of a family that’s single-handedly keeping Kleenex in business.
But for those of us who’ve been watching since the beginning — hell, even if you only tuned in last season and saw Amber foolishly rush into an engagement — you were likely blown away by the leaps and bounds by which she has grown in recent months. »

Elementary Season 3 Premiere Recap: All By Herself
You don’t have to be Sherlock to figure out that Season 3 of Elementary is going to be a bit different.
Thursday’s season premiere made that pretty clear when it took nearly 13 minutes (sans ads) for Holmes to even appear — and in a creepy helmet, no less. Instead, the opener took its time establishing Joan’s new way of life, picking up six months after the events of Season 2. She’s got an amazing apartment, there’s a meet-cute with her neighbor’s brother (played by Smash’s Raza Jaffrey) involving a lizard and she’s successfully working as a P. »
Scandal Recap: Lethal Weapons
This Thursday on ABC’s Scandal, Olivia unleashed her fixing skills on two fronts — both on behalf of accused murderers — while Mellie learned an invaluable history lesson from an unlikely teacher.
Ronald Reagan never sat in the Scandal-verse’s White House, we learned this week. Rather, the 40th Potus was named Cooper, and he has died of a stroke as the episode opens. We (and Fitz, nursing his bruised knuckles) get this news from Mellie, who’s back to looking like her usual self as she readies to plan the funeral and meet Coop’s Mrs., named Bitsy. Olivia »

Much in the way that Friday Night Lights isn’t just a show about football, CBS’ The McCarthys isn’t just a show about basketball. It’s also a show about crazy people.
Thursday’s series premiere introduced viewers to the titular family, a six-piece ensemble of basketball-obsessed lunatics — save for gay son Ronny (the impossibly likable Tyler Ritter), who couldn’t shoot a basket to save his life. Even though he does in the premiere. Twice.
Feeling stifled by his overbearing family, Ronny decides to accept a new job and move »

Allow me to back up a bit: After attempting to shake off Kai — or, rather, turn him into a “douche kebab” via the aid of a pickaxe — Bonnie and Damon busted out the Ascendant and prepared for lift-off.
