Superstore Recap: Positive Thinking — Amy Delivers Some Big News
The following contains spoilers from Thursday’s Superstore.

At least one life was forever changed by the events of this week’s Superstore. And maybe, just maybe, two were?

In the episode, Amy reveals to Dina and Cheyenne that she thought she was pregnant a few weeks back, but a store-brand pregnancy test came back negative. Then Dina informs her that Cloud 9 recently recalled said store-brand test after a series of false negatives were reported throughout the midwest.

Guy Builds A Jet-Powered Fire Vortex Cannon

At least this guy that built a jet-powered fire vortex cannon put a disclaimer in front of the video before he got going. Apart from that the technical jargon that he goes into briefly would confuse just about anyone that doesn’t know much about the manner in which this thing is put together, but the idea that it shoots fire would be enough to get a lot of people interested. The design of the thing looks kind of cumbersome, but it’s also just sleek enough to look like it might be impressive. Once he turns it on though the resulting

Arrow Recap: No Bueno Diaz

Bat men (that is, the New York Yankees) again played havoc with my Arrow viewing this week, by preempting the CW drama here in the Tri-State Area (not to be confused with Phineas and Ferb‘s Tri-State Area).

And yet I know how much y’all love to talk about Oliver & Co,. so here is the place to do it — albeit in the absence of an actual recap.

What I do know is that this week’s episode, “The Dragon,” was Ricardo Diaz-centric, as the architect behind the seizing of Star City traveled with Laurel to Blüdhaven to take a

NFL 2018 Schedule Is Out: Check Out The Primetime Games, Thanksgiving & More

The NFL is coming off a rough season lowlighted by some ratings challenges and a president — and a big chunk of the league’s fan base — grumbling about players protesting during the national anthem. But after an off-season in which Fox spent a reported $3 billion for the Thursday Night Football TV rights for its 25th year airing the NFL games, spring has sprung and a new campaign looms, as the country’s most lucrative sports machine released its 2018 regular-season…

Drag Race Recap: Which Warring Queens Made Peace... For Now?

Drag Race Recap: Which Warring Queens Made Peace... For Now?
RuPaul’s Drag Race was dripping with poetic justice on Thursday — and with pickle juice, but that’s a whole other thing.

Following her explosive exchange with Eureka during last week’s Untucked, The Vixen entered the next phase of the competition with a fresh game plan: “Eureka needs attention, so instead of giving her a lot of negative attention, I’m just going to ignore her — and that’s going to drive her crazy.” (Little did Vixen know, it would also light a fire under Eureka’s “sexy baby” ass.)

‘Bosch’ Boss Discusses Eleanor’s Big Scene and What’s Coming in Season 5

[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Bosch” Season 4.]

The life of a homicide detective is not an easy one, but Det. Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch (Titus Welliver) has been tested even more than usual this season on his eponymous Amazon series. As the lead on a task force investigating the murder of a high-profile attorney on Los Angeles’ Angels Flight railcar, Bosch has to contend with public perception, a shady police commission chief, and possible corruption inside the Lapd.

And while that’s all part of the job, Bosch’s own personal tragedies have also overlapped with cases this year. Our hero finally got closure for the cold case murder of his mother since that killer and the Angels Flight killer turned out to be one and the same. But the biggest blow came when Harry had to watch his ex-wife Eleanor (Sarah Clarke) get gunned down and die. In trying to bring her killers to justice,

Grey's Anatomy Recap: High Times

Grey Sloan Surgical Innovation Prototypes Day looked a lot more hilarious in Thursday’s Grey’s Anatomy than I remember Science Fairs being. Then again, I never attended a Science Fair the way that most of Grey Sloan’s doctors did these presentations: high as a kite on pot-laced cookies. Mind you, “Judgment Day” wasn’t all laughs — in fact, the hour thrust upon Jo an opportunity to take the lead, ready or not, on a major surgery, and revealed to Jackson why it had been such a mistake for him to waive the agreement that his grandfather had made with Rebecca.

The Road to Infinity War: ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

Looking back on it, it’s really quite astounding that the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever became the entertainment mainstay that it did. The premise of a full-blown cinematic universe was untested and the studio had no reason to believe that audiences would show up for the crossover it was building up to. The roster of heroes available to them was filled with B-listers that nobody had been forced to care about before: important to the comics, to be sure, but had never crossed over into the mainstream in the same way that Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four had. And

What We Learned from “The Originals” Season 5 Premiere

The Originals may have started as The Vampire Diaries spinoff back in 2013, but it has since become a great story of its own. We’ve seen the rise and fall of the vampire-werewolf horror genre, and yet The Originals is still here even though this season will be its last. It might be too soon to tell and as much as we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, we wouldn’t be surprised if The CW orders some type of spinoff for this show as well. Our fascination for the undead will always be there, and with the premiere of

Ian Somerhalder to Star in Netflix Vampire Drama “V-Wars”

Ian Somherhalder is coming to Netflix in the new vampire drama V-Wars, but for some reason a lot of people have taken to thinking that the plot sounds very similar to another series that was featured on FX. V-Wars is being likened to The Strain largely because the main character, Somerhalder, plays the role of a doctor that suddenly notices a new disease that is turning people into murderous creatures that feed on other humans. Now if the term ‘feeds’ is taken out of context and likened to cannibalism then it could be different, but with a title like V-Wars

‘Wild Wild Country’: Mark Duplass and Filmmakers On Sheela’s Regrets, and If She’s a Psychopath — Turn It On Podcast

‘Wild Wild Country’: Mark Duplass and Filmmakers On Sheela’s Regrets, and If She’s a Psychopath — Turn It On Podcast
Mark Duplass admits that he can identify a bit with Ma Anand Sheela, the focus of Netflix’s buzzworthy docuseries “Wild Wild Country.”

The personal secretary to cult leader Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, Sheela didn’t initially come to Oregon in the early 1980s to cause trouble. But after her attempts to build Rajneeshpuram — a multi-million dollar utopia in a remote part of the state — were met with resistance, she went on the offensive.

For Duplass, who executive produced “Wild Wild Country,” Sheela’s resolve kind of reminds him of his early days in filmmaking.

“Sheela started with ideological love and excitement to build this community, which is very similar to how I came into independent cinema,” Duplass told IndieWire’s Turn It On podcast. “I just want to make my creative stuff and make it good. But then Sheela started to get threatened and she accidentally realized that she was
