Madam Secretary's Téa Leoni, EPs Talk Elizabeth's First Scandal, Henry's Spy Game, Staff Bonding and More

4 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Madam Secretary‘s Elizabeth McCord is always one cool politico, no matter what tricky feat of international diplomacy is demanded of her. But those behind the scenes of CBS’ Sunday-night drama admit that its Season 2 pickup last month provided a welcome respite from the nerve-racking renwal waiting game.

“It was a big relief to get it early,” executive producer Lori McCreary says with a laugh.

“Huge,” chimes in fellow Ep Barbara Hall.

Review: CBS’s “Battle Creek”

27 February 2015 3:45 PM, PST | IMDb Blog - All the Latest | See recent IMDb Blog - All the Latest news »

CBS’s primetime lineup is a comfortable den filled with reliable procedurals. These crime shows can be thrilling, to be sure. But viewers watch the twisted perps on “Criminal Minds,” “NCIS, “CSI” and all of their related spinoffs do horrible things, with the knowledge that determined law enforcement specialists probably will bring them to justice by the end of the hour, usually with the help of Nasa-grade technology.

Contrast these whizbang adventures with the caseload of “Battle Creek‘s” overworked cops, who work in a department so poorly funded that in one drug bust, a detective sends his informant to face a dangerous criminal with a baby monitor because the department’s other surveillance equipment doesn’t work. They do get their man, but not before their star detective gets a nasty shiner for his efforts. (Their Tasers don’t work either.)

The Blacklist Review: “The Deer Hunter” (Season 2, Episode13)

26 February 2015 9:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Although it would have been a brazen move to turn Liz into a member of The Blacklist by either sending her to jail or making her a fugitive, there was actually very little chance of that. So, why the drawn out ticking time clock of the unusually effective Detective Martin Wilcox? Drama! Forget the fact that she’s the center of the an international conspiracy, forget the fact that she’s basically seen her own life blow up in her face, and forget the fact nothing is certain in her life, including her past. We still have to threaten dear old Agent Keen with prison for a murder she didn’t commit. Oh yeah, and there’s a serial killer running around, too.

Leaving aside the relative low-risk chance that she’d go to prison, we’re reminded this week that Liz is a profiler, and like the Criminal Minds gang, »

House of Cards’ Edward Meechum Is a Fan-Fiction Legend

23 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

House of Cards handed a gift to fan-fiction writers with a love scene between Frank, Claire, and their Secret Service agent Edward Meechum last season. The moment lasted all of 45 seconds onscreen but has since given rise to thousands of words online, in a growing subgenre of Meechum-specific fan fiction that explores the physical and emotional nuances of a Frank/Claire/Meechum relationship. House of Cards fan fiction does entertain other pairings — Rachel and Lisa; Frank and Tim, in college; Gavin Orsay and a bike messenger; Secretary of State Catherine Durant and Criminal MindsAlex Blake — but it is overwhelming and almost exclusively inspired by the Meechum moment. Most of the fiction characterizes Meechum similarly: a deer in headlights when it comes to Frank and Claire’s advances, who can be surprisingly bold when he wants to be. In advance of the season-three premiere this Friday, we’ve culled the »
