Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 16 Review: Quid Pro Quo

Judge Grove is back!

I've missed his sardonic comments, insistence on proper procedure, and surprising flashes of empathy.

He returned as part of a smartly executed, high-concept story on Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 16, and I couldn't be more thrilled.

Between an unusual format, an interesting story and Judge Grove's trademark sarcasm, "Quid Pro Quo" had a lot to offer.

But before getting to all that, there's a burning question I have to ask: What was Amy thinking, getting involved with Mark Hickman again?

Mark Hickman first appeared on Major Crimes Season 4 Episode 19. He was obnoxious, untrustworthy, and caused Amy a boatload of trouble because she kept sneaking off to meet him despite orders from Sharon to stay away from him.

So why, exactly, did she think this time would be any different?

Hobbs: It doesn't matter that you were cleared, Amy. No matter what he instructs the jury, they won't forget.

Suits Season 6 Episode 15 Review: Quid Pro Quo

Will Louis be able to get back on Tara's good side?

That's certainly one of the bigger questions after Suits Season 6 Episode 15. Louis did not want his relationship to be full of secrets because that does not make for a rock-solid foundation. 

It was perfectly understandable that he would want to come clean, but I don't think his chat with Rachel was worthwhile. Louis has been with Tara for, like, five minutes. 

Rachel and Mike's relationship had been going on for considerably longer, so whatever Rachel said was never going to mirror the outcome she got.

Louis and Tara rushed together and that's probably why their relationship is more likely to implode than others. They don't know much about each other, and that's not a good thing. 

Tara was completely right to storm off after Louis called her out for being with two men at once. The difference here is

'Suits' Recap: How Desperate Is Mike To Become A Lawyer?
Up until this episode titled "Quid Pro Quo," everything appeared to be falling apart for Mike on Suits. Interestingly enough, that's also when things seem to be coming together.

Mike is met with a visitor, Stamos, who wants to discuss his case. But he's not happy when Mike lets him know that Harvey is representing him too. He gets even more upset when he finds out they were offered and turned down a $100 million deal. He immediately wants Mike to take the offer, but Mike tells him to be patient. Stamos gives him two days to make the $100 million into more or he'll settle.

Silence of the Lambs Pt 5: The Nightmare Finale

Team Experience tag-teams a revisit of 1991's Best Picture The Silence of the Lambs for its 25th anniversary. And now... the finale.

Part 1 The case. The players. An FBI "errand"

Part 2 Buffalo Bill's next "Special Lady"

Part 3 Clarice & Lecter's "Quid Pro Quo"

Part 4 Monstrous escape. Gruesome realizations.

pt. 5 by Timothy Brayton

Jose left us in the wake of a most repulsive discovery, and Agent Starling is beside herself with ragehorror.

01:31:55 "And he c- he can sew, this guy, he's very skilled-" Jodie Foster is so amazing in this brief little exchange. Pacing back and forth jabbing her hands in the air with anxious fury. It's such a perfect extension of the arc she's built all movie: she's horrified and disgusted, but funnels all of that into hyper-professionalism.

01:32:09 Starling's frenzy in the homey little suburban bedroom is sharply contrasted with the Tom Clancy-thriller interior of an FBI plane,

'The Silence of the Lambs': 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About the Serial Killer Classic

It's hard to think of a movie less suitable for Valentine's Day than "The Silence of the Lambs."

Yet that's the day the unforgettable thriller debuted 25 years ago, on February 14, 1991. The creepy, gory adaptation of Thomas Harris's bestseller was an enormous hit, made an enduring pop culture figure of sophisticated flesh-eater Hannibal Lecter, transformed Anthony Hopkins into a star, and became only the third (and so far, the last) movie to win the top five Oscars -- Best Picture, Director, Actress, Actor, and Screenplay.

As many times as you've seen Hopkins's Lecter casually mention how well human liver goes with fava beans and a nice Chianti, there's still much you may not know about "Silence." Quid pro quo -- we'll reveal the movie's secrets, if you read on.

1. Hopkins wasn't the first actor to play Hannibal Lecter; that honor went to Brian Cox (above), in Michael Mann's 1986 "Manhunter,

Silence of the Lambs Pt 4: Screaming and Coveting

Team Experience is revisiting 1991's Best Picture winner for its 25th Anniversary...

Previously... We learned about the case and met Clarice as she went on "an errand," Buffalo Bill caught his next victim, and Starling & Lecter played a game of Quid Pro Quo.

an Fyc ad from the time

Pt. 4 by Jose Solis

When Nathaniel left us, Dr. Lecter was Scheherezade-ing the crap out of Clarice by telling her about Baltimore. Do you ever get a sense that just like the King from Arabian Nights, Agent Starling craves to return for more?

01:08:18 “Everything you need to find him is right there in those pages...” he says about the case files. As Clarice paces left to right, Dr. Lecter decides it’s time for another lesson by quoting Marcus Aurelius. He suggests Clarice decipher what is the nature of the killer. As she lists every reason why serial killers kill in lesser thrillers,

Constantine, Ep. 1.11 to 1.13 develops cast, but has plot hiccups

Constantine, Season 1, Episodes 11 to 13

Airs Friday at 8 Pm Et on NBC

Just in time for its first season finale, Constantine develops both its side characters, like Manny the once annoying angel (Harold Perrineau), who is the real star of the penultimate episode “Angels and Ministers of Grace”, and Jim Corrigan (Emmet Scanlan), who plays a big role in the finale and main cast. The writers finally get to show John Constantine’s (Matt Ryan) smoking habit, and continue to look into his mix of passive and active responses to the Rising Darkness, and have Zed (Angelica Celaya) struggle with her visions in a physical and spiritual way while building friendships with Corrigan and Manny.

However, for all its character growth and exploration, Constantine is pretty content with being a case of the week supernatural show, with minimal connective tissue between the episodes, even if the finale does pull a couple

Constantine episode 11 review: A Whole World Out There

An old friend from the Newcastle Crew returns to Constantine this week, leading to an effectively creepy episode...

This review contains spoilers.

1.11 A Whole World Out There

There’s sure to be drama when members of the Newcastle Crew come out on Constantine. A Whole World Out There ditches usual sidekicks Zed and Chas in favor of John’s old friend Ritchie Simpson, a computer genius who appeared in the pilot episode. In Hellblazer, Ritchie is able to insert his consciousness into a computer; in the TV show, he proves himself able to control alternate dimensions with his mind. His success at this is both empowering and chilling.

Ritchie is a professor at Ivy University, and using Ritchie’s research, four of his students become entangled in a universe created by Jacob Shaw, a dead mystic whose consciousness lives on in his own personal world. Shaw hunts the students in his world,

Constantine Season 1 Episode 10 Review – ‘Quid Pro Quo′

Martin Carr reviews the tenth episode of Constantine

Quid Pro Quo: A reciprocal exchange from the Latin circa sixteenth century.

Underutilised and under the radar no longer people. Finally seasoned supporting player Charles Halford gets his chance to outshine Matt Ryan, in a move destined to see the fortunes of Constantine take on a more optimistic hue. You see by concentrating focus on Chas and his family, Halford is able to display a range which combines depth and pathos without becoming mawkish or clichéd. In a storyline lifted straight from Hellblazer we get moments of backstory in flashback which provide structure and reasoning behind his unquestioning loyalty. Ryan takes a backseat for the first time this series, proving that Chas is more than mere muscle and a set of wheels.

Interestingly his wife Renee has been toned down for television. Rather less the deep rooted man hater of comic book fame,

Constantine episode 10 review: Quid Pro Quo

Charles Halford's Chas Chandler receives some welcome character development in this week's episode of Constantine...

This review contains spoilers.

1.10 Quid Pro Quo

There’s a new hero in town, and his name is Chas Chandler. The mild-mannered cab driver has thus far been somewhat lacking in personality, but Quid Pro Quo rectifies that by giving Chas both a backstory and a chance to take charge.

I was mistaken last week when I said this wasn’t a Hellblazer story. It’s loosely based on the straight-to-graphic-novel book All His Engines (which I have not read, unfortunately). In the Constantine version of the story, dozens of people in Brooklyn are falling into mysterious comas, and one of the victims is Chas’ daughter Geraldine. Chas enlists Constantine’s help, against the wishes of his ex-wife Renee (who is a lot hotter and less irritating here than in the comics; on the flip side,

Constantine, Ep. 1.10, “Quid Pro Quo” finally develops Chas

Constantine, Season 1, Episode 10, “Quid Pro Quo

Written by Brian Anthony

Directed by Mary Harron

Airs Fridays at 8pm (Et) on NBC

Throughout Constantine‘s first season, Chas Chandler (Charles Halford) has been an enigmatic and sadly underused figure. He plays the voice of reason and comfort to the amoral, twice or thrice damned Constantine (Matt Ryan) and has saved him many times with his special, unexplained powers. Using some carefully selected flashbacks joined to the main narrative with the recurring image of a flame, “Quid Pro Quo” reveals why Chas seemingly can’t die, why he is friends with a man who makes him pick up his bar tab 10 out of 10 times, and explores Chas’ strained relationship with his ex-wife Renee (Amanda Clayton) and daughter Geraldine. Writer Brian Anthony also introduces legendary DC Comics villain Felix Faust (played by a chilling Mark Margolis) a “second fiddle” magician who acts as
