'The Strain' Season 1, Episode 11 Recap: A Trip to the Master's House

September 22nd, 2014 8:51am EDT
The Strain
We probably shouldn't hold "The Strain" under any kind of close logical inspection. It's big and spectacular and gruesome and, on occasion, kinda dumb.

This is a gift horse we should not look in the mouth (if for no other reason than "its mouth probably contains a horrid vampire stinger").

But here's a nitpick that must be made: surely, there was some other option for Zack than to leave him alone with a dementia-ridden senior in the middle of the full-on vampire apocalypse.

'The Good Wife' Season Premiere Recap And Review: 'The Line' - S
After season five of The Good Wife left our jaws - and our hearts - on the floor, now it's time to see what the award-winning drama plans to do in the wake of its massive changes. "The Line" picks up exactly where the end of season five left off, with Alicia (Emmy winner Julianna Margulies) being asked to run for State's Attorney, while still trying to run her own law firm and move on from the death of someone she loved. And after all that, it's not even really her episode.

Rebuffing Eli's (Alan Cumming) request to run for the office (and laughing at his "Saint Alicia" nickname for her), s...

Every 'SNL' Good Neighbor Comedy Skit Short Ranked

Kyle Mooney
Three of the new “SNL” hires in 2013 – cast members Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney and video director Dave McCary – were brought in as a team in much the same way that the Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone) joined in 2005. Bennett, Mooney, and McCary (along with a fourth member, Nick Rutherford, who was not hired by “SNL” last year but has since been hired as a writer for Season 40) are together known as “Good Neighbor.” They have been an L.A.-based sketch group for the past several years, and much of their work can be seen on YouTube. Many of the pre-recorded ...

What To Know For Season 8 Of 'The Big Bang Theory'
With season 8 of Big Bang on it's way it's high time to look at the things we love about the show, what keeps everyone coming back year after year, and what makes the show so watchable 8 seasons in.

So far, The Big Bang Theory has been able to do several things that even the most successful shows on TV have been unable to do. Firstly, they have been able to keep the entire main cast for 7 great seasons and even bring in additional characters successfully without interrupting the fabric of the group - even if Sheldon would disagree. The introduction of Amy Farrah Fowler as a cast regular ...

The 10 Best 'Saturday Night Live' Sketches Of Season 39
With “Saturday Night Live” on the cusp of beginning its latest season, we will be spending the next several days looking back at the best of last season.

Today, we're covering the best sketches.

1. We Did Stop (the Government) – There are some classic “SNL” sketches that come from a place of total nonsense, and then are those like “We Did Stop (the Government)” that are almost too perfect to be real. The opening shot made it clear that this parody song was going to be a takedown of the government shutdown in the style of Miley Cyrus’ surreal “We Can’t Stop” video. Instantly I sensed tha...
