The Resident Season 2 Episode 4 Review: About Time

Has Marshall won you guys over yet? 

If you weren't a fan of Conrad's dad up until this point, then please tell me after The Resident Season 2 Episode 4 you're willing to cut the guy some slack. Marshall's verbal smackdown in that elevator was so damn satisfying and will go down as one of the best moments in the series' history. 

Conrad lives to see another day of practicing medicine, respect for Marshall has reached new heights, and it wasn't the only verbal smackdown in the hour. Don't you love this show? 

Let's go ahead and get that Conrad business out of the way first. The flashback used to explain how Conrad ended up being grilled by lawyers at the top of the hour was well done. Through the course of Conrad's little hearing, we found out so much. 

For one, Conrad and the gang all look super adorable in the

9 Casting Decisions That Hurt Gilmore Girls (And 11 That Saved It)

Part of the magic of Gilmore Girls -- and part of the reason its popularity endures years after it went off the air -- is that Stars Hollow is such a rich, inviting place. A great deal of care obviously went into making it come alive, with significant attention paid to ensuring that even the tiniest of details feel authentic. It's the kind of fictional town that makes fans wish they could live there for real.

That quality extends to the town's patrons, who are beloved by viewers for their quirkiness. Odds are good that you've watched the show and thought how awesome it would be to have one of them as your best friend. For such a tiny burg, Stars Hollow has a lot of people, which means a lot of actors were required to play them. Obviously, there are the lead actors, who are crucial. Then there are

Cartoon Network’s ‘Summer Camp Island’ Speaks to People ‘Craving Gentleness’

  • Variety
British animator Julia Pott, the creator of Cartoon Network’s new children’s series “Summer Camp Island,” said it spoke “to people who are craving gentleness,” during a presentation of the show Saturday at MipJunior in Cannes, France.

Pott compared her animated series, which follows two friends at a magical sleepaway camp, to “Gilmore Girls.” “Nothing bad is ever going to happen in that show and if you really just need to be soothed you can watch it, and that is what we want with this show… anyone that wants to feel soothed, it is for them.” She added: “There is darker stuff in there but it is in a little cute package.”

Rob Sorcher, chief content officer at Cartoon Network, who led the MipJunior session, incorporating the European premiere of one of the show’s episodes, said it was “pretty rare” to come across a property that has a

6 Actors Who Regretted Being On CW Shows (And 14 Who Adored It)

Since its launch in 2006, The CW has given audiences access not only to popular WB and Upn shows, but also a slew of original content across various genres.

Since the network's beginning, fans have kept up with the paranormal adventures of brothers Sam and Dean Winchester on Supernatural. Since the premiere of Arrow in 2012, the Arrowverse has provided superhero fans a large lineup of shows in a massive superhero universe. And, beginning early last year, characters from Archie Comics have taken a dark turn in the riveting drama Riverdale.

With such a lineup of popular shows, it's no wonder the network has helped kickstart the careers of many notable actors, including Kristen Bell and Jessica Biel. However, even though several actors may owe their career to The CW, this doesn't mean they all enjoyed their time on their respective shows, which has been due to a variety of reasons.

10 Couples That Hurt Gilmore Girls (And 10 That Saved It)

Lorelai and Rory's love lives were big talking points while Gilmore Girls aired — and with the Netflix revival. While Lorelai's endgame wasn't much of a question mark, she had quite a few love interests. Meanwhile, Rory's was very much an unknown. While each figured out their lives, their romantic entanglements led to couples that hurt and helped the series.

One of the problems was that stalling Luke and Lorelai or figuring out Rory's relationships led to love triangles. Love triangles often hurt a series. Sometimes, one party is obviously the loser (the man who wasn't Luke). Other times, the triangle leads to confrontations between the interested parties. The latter happened with both Lorelai and Rory.

Another problem came in temporary love interests for Lorelai while the show refused to put her and Luke together. Instead, the early seasons just had them flirting, while each had other relationships.

25 Things Wrong With Gilmore Girls We All Choose To Ignore

Gilmore Girls was one of the WB's most groundbreaking shows of the '00s. Lorelai and her Bff/daughter Rory welcomed us into Amy Sherman-Palladino's idyllic New England world. The show created something truly unique and optimistic in an era of melodramatic teen shows and hyper-cynical adult dramas. Gilmore Girls provided a spot of something sweet and innocent, all expressed through Sherman-Palladino's iconically rhythmic, punchy dialogue.

The whimsical supporting cast of characters that populated Stars Hollow also gave the show its quintessential flavor. Kirk, Taylor, Miss Patty, Mrs. Kim, all seemed a little out of time. It was almost as if they'd be more comfortable in a classic film than in a modern dramedy, but that's part of what made them so freaking entertaining.

That said, what made the show so charming -- its out of place, out of time sensibility -- was also what could end up

‘The Resident’ Season 2 Will Lean ‘Heavily’ Into Medical Errors – Yes, They Know Not All Doctors Approve
The Resident” has been quite honest about it’s mission to “pull back the curtain” of the medical industry since before it even premiered — often using that exact expression to describe the Matt Czuchry-led Fox drama’s premise in promo materials.

And it followed through on that promise in its first season, with a finale that saw Dr. Lane Hunter (Melina Kanakaredes) — a well-respected oncologist at Atlanta’s fictional Chastain Park Memorial — arrested for committing insurance fraud by giving both sick and cancer-free patients radical levels of chemotherapy.

Now that the medical drama is entering its second season, showrunner Todd Harthan tells TheWrap the series is ready to turn the defibrillator up to 11 and shock viewers with even more dastardly doctor plot points.
