Controlling fathers and rampant couples in this week's Thanksgiving episode of Beauty And The Beast...
This review contains spoilers.
Thanksgiving is a time for family and feasting so naturally Tori Windsor and Bob Reynolds popped up. Because what is a family holiday without a significant amount of fear, duress, and near-death experiences? Not a TV show, that’s for sure.
As is so often the case, Tess is once again my favourite thing in the episode. I’m sure everyone is stunned by this. The best of the best? “I was a Cub Scout.” “You’re a girl.” Excuse me while I purr at the deft use of humour to communicate a few salient points about gender politics in relationship to how boys versus girls are raised using two lines of dialogue. Well frigging done. Imagine a slow clap »
"Beauty and the Beast" has a new and complicated antagonist this season -- FBI Special Agent Bob Reynolds, aka Catherine's biological father. Add in the fact that Reynolds also happens to be Vincent's handler in a quest to kill beasts, and it gets complicated quickly.
Find out more about Reynolds in this interview with actor Ted Whittall.
Rumors are that Reynolds is going to spend Thanksgiving with Catherine -- and possibly the rest of the "Beast" gang. How does that happen?
Ted Whittall: I think Reynolds wanted to spend Thanksgiving with his daughter but Cat kind of springs Vincent on him. It's hard to describe without giving it all away. But circumstances kind of conspire to get everybody involved into Reynolds' house for Thanksgiving. Reynolds kind of wants it to happen that way, because everything is starting to spin out of control and it's easier for him to get »

Key & Peele, the funniest show on TV right now, carries on the legacy of both Chappelle's Show and Monty Python. Keegan-Michael Key (the tall one) and Jordan Peele (the short one), both biracial veterans of Mad TV, are writers, executive producers and performers who take obvious delight in throwing themselves into a spectacular array of characters: gangsters, teachers, nerds, frat brothers and French revolutionaries. Rolling Stone recently sat down with the comedy auteurs – genial but intensely focused – in the Hollywood recording studio where they were overdubbing dialogue for their third season. »
The answer in this episode is intriguingly ambiguous. Find out why in this recap.
"My name is Dr. Jedikiah Price. Would you mind putting down the knife?"
John's past is tragic, to say the least. Around the time that John got his funky powers, he was an adolescent living in a rotten foster home. We're talking about the kind of place where Dad drinks the money and the oldest kid has to steal so no one starves.
It's almost a blessing when one Dr. Jedikiah Price arrives to whisk John away to a better life.
Of course, it's not really better -- just different. Under Jedikiah's dubious care, John learns to fight and to use his powers. »

Another week of Scandal, another edition of the TV Fanatic Scandal Round Table! This week was all about answers and filling in some of the blanks of Olivia's personal history. There might've been a line or two about Presidential balls in there as well.
Join TV Fanatic staff members Jim Garner, Leigh Raines, Carla Day, Christine Orlando, and Miranda Wicker and Emily from ABC Scandal Fans as they break down "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner." Sound off in the comments below with your answers to this week's questions.
What was your favorite scene or quote from "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner"?
Jim: I liked Eli and Olivia talking in her office. They both were putting on super-fake facial expressions to keep the outside audience from having any idea of what they were saying. Both clever and creepy!
Leigh: That ending when Eli was demanding Olivia opened the door »

Centered largely around Olivia Pope's relationship with her menacing father, Rowan/Eli Pope, the episode - appropriately titled "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" - was a dizzying ride between Liv's present day life and illuminating flashbacks.
The show kicked off with a scene from five years ago, where Liv promises to bring homeless Huck (still sitting in his "7:52" subway station) her doggy bag from dinner with ...

Warning: Major spoilers below! We're about one episode away from quitting our jobs, applying to law school and charging a whole bunch of chic pantsuits to our credit cards. Why? Because Olivia Pope (played by the impeccable Kerry Washington, in case you've been living under a rock) continues to rule our living rooms Thursday nights. In the second episode of Scandal's third season, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?," the political fixer was on her A Game, delivering biting verbal smackdown after biting verbal smackdown. Here are three we're still buzzing about:1. "I Will Go For Blood"The love of »

Scandal doesn't really ever disappoint, does it? Even in episodes that are a little slower than others and meant to deliver tons of background, the energy is high and the revelations are jaw-dropping.
"Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" gave us a glimpse into the history between Eli and Olivia Pope and left Huck dangling over the edge of the cliff.
Can you imagine finding out your father, whom you believe to be a curator for a museum - an academic - is really the head of a super top secret super-assassin training school? Putting the pieces of that together on your own after the ramblings of a maybe mentally ill homeless man you befriended in the subway rattles on about Wonderland and a paper company?
I guess we know where Olivia's gut comes into play. She knew something was off about what she was hearing and she pushed until she got the truth. »

As last week's Season 3 premiere of "Scandal" made clear, Olivia Pope isn't exactly what you'd call a daddy's girl.
After the Season 2 finale revealed that the devious Rowan (Joe Morton) was, in fact, Olivia's (Kerry Washington) father, the premiere drove home the fact that these two have a very broken relationship. Thursday's (Oct. 10) episode, the flashback-laden "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," will shine a light on whatever it was that tore father and daughter apart, Morton promises.
Speaking with THR, Morton says, "What ever happened in their past, clearly there was a moment when he sent her away and they lived their separate lives and you'll see all the details of that. You've seen in the first episode that their relationship is not a warm and cozy one and you'll see depths of all of that."
Morton hints that B613, the black-ops group Rowan runs with an iron fist, very »
Oh Scandal, it's so good to have you back. Last week's premiere didn't waste any time diving back into the political mind games that have proved to be the bread and butter of this show from day one. Well, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" was able to live up to that very same standard.
Not only do fans finally get some details about Olivia's distant relationship with dear old dad (aka Rowan, aka Eli Pope), but we also see our favorite fixer back to her old self as she works to clear the name of the aide who took the blame for being President Grant's mistress. (Poor girl was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.) But putting on that White Hat again means Olivia must declare war on the White House itself. It's a battle of wills, so who will win out and who makes a shocking reappearance? »
Look out, White House. Olivia Pope is coming for you.
When we last saw this Gladiator, she had taken on Jeannine Locke as a client, following Mellie and Cyrus putting out a video of the Vice President's top aide gushing about how "hot" the President is.
But Olivia isn't about to let Jeannine go down as the President's mistress, defending her to reporters in the following clip from Thursday's "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" and introducing her to the world as a "loyal friend, sister and daughter" who "absolutely, positively did not have sex with the President of the United States."
She then accuses the White House of slander. Your move, Cyrus...

Of all the crazy, sexy, cool things I've gotten to do as a result of my job, nothing has even come close to topping my day as an extra on Scandal!
If you've been living under a rock for the last two years (where the WiFi sucks, and therefore you can not follow me on Twitter), my passion for Scandal has been white hot since day one and grown exponentially with every intricate episode. So when ABC asked if I wanted to be an extra in a season three episode, I think my reaction shattered a few eardrums.
EW's Sandra Gonzales, TVGuide.com's Natalie Abrams, TVGuide Magazine's Debra Birnbaum and I were assigned the performance-stretching task of playing reporters (we're so method!) covering a White House press conference given by none other than President Fitzgerald Grant!

Is it just me or is Scandal the hottest show anywhere right now? It doesn't matter what time of day it is, someone somewhere seems to be watching Scandal reruns, talking about Scandal reruns, Tweeting about Scandal or buying the latest Scandal fashions at their local Saks store.
All Scandal, all the time. And now that it's returned - and what a return that was - we have a brand new season to obsess over. Best Thursday night ever!
"It's Handled" had absolutely everyone, even Daddy Dearest, trying to control the situation after Olivia was outed as being the President's mistress. Her father tried to put her on a plane with a new identity. Cyrus prepared to burn her. The team scrambled behind the scenes to figure out something - anything - that would save her.
David advised her to get out in front of the story and save herself »

"There isn't any such thing in the world as a bad boy."
Even people who haven't seen "Boys Town" know Spencer Tracy's line, in character as Father Edward Flanagan, as the credo of the real Boys Town, the institution renowned for its care of orphaned and troubled kids. The classic movie, released 75 years ago this week (on September 9, 1938), was a huge hit, a milestone in the careers of Spencer Tracy and Mickey Rooney, and an inspiration to wayward kids and those who would help them, all over the country.
As beloved as the movie has been for generations, there's still plenty you may not know about it -- how it almost didn't get released, how Tracy's Oscar victory almost turned into a publicity nightmare, and how the movie almost did more harm than good to the real Boys Town.
Read on for 25 true tales behind the making of "Boys Town. »

After last week's series of O.M.G.! moments, Mistresses returned with a few more, along with a heartbreaking reunion for our favorite sisters, as "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" brought Savi and Joss' mommy home for an enlightening visit.
But can we talk about Karen first because the stupid meter on Dr. Kim was setting off alarm bells this week? Karen ran to the girls to lament that Elizabeth Grey knew she was screwing around with her husband and Oh No!, what if she actually killed Tom?!?
Hate to say it, but I was with Joss on this one…
Joss: And if we want to look at the silver lining here, he was going to die soon anyway. So as far as murders go it's like not the worst kind of murder. | permalink
Karen was so wrapped up in her little murder mystery that she actually hired some sleazy »

Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who "Cosby Show" fans know as Theo Huxtable, stopped by "Katie" on Friday to reminisce about the good for her Hollywood Heartthrob episode.
Warner was just 13 when he started his eight-year sting on "The Cosby Show" and said "the experience was incredible," adding, "One of the rare things about the show was that we all genuinely liked each other."
Couric couldn't help but ask about her favorite part of "The Cosby Show": the title sequences. "We had a lot of fun doing it and all of them were fun except the one I think with the Caribbean theme," he said with a laugh, noting the Season 5 opener below.
Warner attributed the show's success and the cast's ease with creator and star Bill Cosby, noting he "really set the tone" because of anyone, he could have so cocky and big-headed about his work, but had so much humility. »
