'The Flash': Christmas With The Reverse-Flash

December 10th, 2014 8:30am EST
'The Flash' Recap: Christmas With The Reverse-Flash
"The Man in the Yellow Suit" gave us everything we could ever want in "The Flash's" mid-season finale. Namely, a man in a yellow suit.

The Reverse-Flash has had almost zero screen time this season (up until last night, that is), only talked about in whispers or blurs of yellow that no one's really capable enough to describe. And now he's here, in the flesh and taunting Barry outright.

Though he spent a fair chunk of time onscreen, the mustard-colored speedster only popped off lines like “Your destiny is to lose to me, just as your mother's destiny was to die that night." Or, "if you want...

'The Flash' And 'Arrow' Swap Punches, Superhero Wisdom

December 3rd, 2014 8:25am EST
'Flash vs. Arrow' Recap: The Flash And Arrow Swap Punches, Super
In theory, "Arrow" and "The Flash" should be the perfect pairing. One's relentlessly dark and grim, the other's a cheery comic book come to life. Also, the CW's been hyping this thing like no tomorrow. Does "Flash vs. Arrow" live up to the hype?

Good heavens, yes.

As per usual with "The Flash," there's a metahuman loose in Central City. This time, it's Roy G. Bivolo. Oliver Queen might not be a fan of giving menacing villains kooky names, but in this case, it's kind of necessary. Because Roy G. Bivolo. So instead, let's call him Chroma.

Chroma's running amok, using his glowing red eyes t...

'The Flash' Review: Flash No More?

November 26th, 2014 7:38am EST
The Flash
"Power Outage" could have lived and died as an entirely forgettable outing for the Scarlet Speedster. Oh look, another metahuman, bent on wreaking some kind of particle-accelerator-adjacent havoc? Big whoop. That happens every week.

But "Power Outage" will live on- because it's not just one standalone "Flash" episode. It's three episodes, gleefully mushed together into a tangle of crazy that was kind of incredible.

Barry, you see, has gotten cocky. He's using his powers in broad daylight, in front of crowds of people, stopping muggers willy-nilly and crossing boundaries man was not meant ...

'The Flash' Recap: The Flash Makes An Exploding Friend

November 12th, 2014 9:07am EST
The Flash
Where are all the honest, decent people in Central City? Ever since that particle accelerator blew, everyone crawling out of the woodwork with gas powers or tornado powers or a gun that makes things real cold has been unequivocally on the side of evil.

We need a few metahumans (who aren't Barry Allen) who can fight on the side of good.

And that's what Plastique (Kelly Frye) is here to do... even if she's far too troubled to actually be Barry's super-buddy (also, sorry, Oliver Queen, but you're just a dude in a hood with above-average bow skills. Call us when you can turn your fingers int...

'The Flash' Series Premiere Recap: Pilot Perfection

October 8th, 2014 8:47am EDT
The Flash
"The Flash" has some serious balls. Is it OK to say balls? Screw it- we're saying it anyway. "Balls."

Because this is a series premiere with some major cojones.

Remember how long it took for "Arrow" to lighten up and embrace the comic book silliness that bore it?

How Oliver Queen started off a dark and brooding vigilante who's name wasn't Green Arrow and who didn't wear Green Arrow's signature domino mask or employ Green Arrow's signature trick arrows?

"Arrow's" in a better place now (a more colorful, comic-book place), but it was a long and arduous road getting there.

Barry Allen isn'...

Yogi Bear
Hanna-Barbera's beloved picnic-basket-stealing bear makes his big-screen debut in "Yogi Bear," a live-action/animation mix children's flick from Journey to the Center of the Earth director Eric Brevig.

The tourists just aren't flocking to Jellystone Park like they used to, and when the budget starts to get tight, Mayor Brown (Andrew Daly) brings down the axe. But while the mayor can certainly make a quick buck by selling the land, what about the families who like to spend their summers in the great outdoors?

When Yogi (Dan Aykroyd) and Boo-Boo (Justin Timberlake) discover they're ...

'Eli Stone' Recap: Lead Paint and a Magic Book

October 29th, 2008 11:19am EDT
Eli Stone
With the resolution of Eli's crisis of faith having already come (his reluctance to become a prophet was so last season), "Eli Stone" was in need of a larger story arc to keep the momentum going and provide viewers with a reason to tune in each week. Posner (Tom Amandes) and Klein's (Katey Sagal) attempt to wrest the firm from Jordan's (Victor Garber) control has provided just that. Not only does this week's episode continue to progress that story arc, but it also throws in a few more juicy tidbits from the future, especially one which rivals the Eli/Maggie baby flash-forward from season ...

'Eli Stone' Recap: Matters Of The Heart

Eli Stone
Eli's (Jonny Lee Miller) visions take an odd turn as he learns more about his brother Nate's (Matt Letscher) dark past in this week's marginally entertaining installment of "Eli Stone." Nate is being sued by a widower (played by "Oz" alum Blake Robbins!), who claims that Nate made a biased decision when he passed over the man's wife for a heart transplant. He has good reason to believe that there was foul play involved, as his wife was an alcoholic, and everyone seems to know the problems that the Stone boys have with alcoholism. Thanks, dad!

Atticus Finch would be proud

'Eli Stone' Recap: George Michael Comes to Town

George Michael
Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller) has had a rough couple of weeks. He was demoted at work, broke up with Taylor (Natasha Henstridge), and effectively pushed away nearly everyone else who was close to him. Oh, and he also decided that he would have surgery to remove that pesky aneurysm, only to discover that the side effects of such a procedure could be disastrous, if not fatal. Sad times in Eli land.

Enter George Michael.

Lawyers get star struck too

George has oft-appeared in Eli's past visions, usually leading Eli to make ethical (if somewhat crazy) choices. So it is understa...

It's Thursday night, so you know what that means? Time for another horrendous episode of "Eli Stone," right? In this wild and crazy world that we live in, it's nice to have something to depend upon. Only this week, ol' Eli decided to throw us a little curveball. This week, the episode wasn't terrible. In fact, it actually bordered on decent. Quite shocking.

Pleading his case

Things are not going so well for Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller). Not only are his strange visions persisting, but he is now facing a hearing with possible disbarment. To top it all off, he even has a l...

'Eli Stone' Recap: Atonement Ain't Easy

February 29th, 2008 9:28am EST
Eli Stone
The episode begins with a standard "previously on Eli Stone" recap as opposed to the creative, Eli-narrated openings from weeks prior. Too bad, those were pretty much the only interesting component of the show. So anyway, after the generic recap, things start off with Eli (Jonny Lee Miller) and Maggie (Julie Gonzalo) in Hawaii. It doesn't appear to be a very pleasant trip as it takes less than a minute for Maggie to start being obnoxiously annoying. It's going to be a long hour.

After a brief opening scene, the clever writers insert a little time jump, and we go back three days. ...

Tune In To Cable TV For Top-Notch, Edgy Shows

February 15th, 2008 2:00pm EST
Showtime's Dexter
There's plenty to watch on network television, but we have long been living in the Golden Age of Cable. Ever since HBO told us, "It's not TV. It's HBO," we've been hooked. Ponying up the money for cable can be difficult, but these channels make it worth the price.

The Veterans:

HBO has lost many of the signature shows that made it a household name. The Sopranos, Sex and the City, Six Feet Under - they were all instrumental in defining HBO as the channel for daring, intelligent and mature programming. But don't write off the channel just yet. While its new series don't quite match the ...

'Eli Stone' Recap: Saving Private Swaine

February 15th, 2008 8:44am EST
Eli Stone
So much for singing and dancing on "Eli Stone." Eli's (Jonny Lee Miller) visions take a grisly turn this week as this time he gets thrust into the middle of a war zone (seems like WW II). Apparently, the not-so-cryptic message he receives is that he is supposed to rescue a Private Swain and take some ridge. That's all well and good; but no George Michael song? What a gyp.

So this time it doesn't take Eli half the episode to figure out his quest, only about 10 minutes. He is supposed to represent Private Felicia Swain, a member of the National Guard who is serving in Iraq and also ...
