'Strike Back' Flashback Recap

May 22nd, 2015 12:07pm EDT
'Strike Back' Flashback: Picking Up The Pieces, Part 2
In the conclusion to Strike Back's South African hacker arc, "Cinemax Season 1, Episode 4," everyone is left wondering about the fate of Damien Scott. Little do we know that it's not the new guy we should be worried about, as this is the episode that would put the audience on notice that this show would never be safe.

When we left off last episode, Scott was in a world of hurt at the hands of former IRA member Daniel Connelly (a superb Liam Cunningham) after impulsively making the decision to sub in for a hacker that Stonebridge had no choice but to shoot. The episode ended with Section 20...

Rutledge And George Try To Preserve Nicole's 1964 Ford F100 Pickup

'Lost In Transmission' Recap: 'Fire In The Hole'
Tonight's episode of Lost in Transmission has nothing to do with the Elmore Leonard short story called "Fire in the Hole." Really, it's more about Rutledge and George trying not to light themselves on fire.

The dynamic duo are trying to preserve Nicole's 1964 Ford F100 pickup truck that might just burn either of them before they can give it to her son Cameron. For once, George likes the choice; he's even enthusiastic about it, at least until he sees the F100's current sad state. It's got years of rust, a lizard under the hood, and a hole in the bed large enough to fit Rutledge. Oh, and it ...

Sawyer Fredericks Wins 'The Voice' For Team Pharrell
In a conclusion that seemed to be forgone, Sawyer Fredericks of Team Pharrell was named the eighth winner of The Voice on Tuesday night. Fredericks beat out Team Blake's Meghan Linsey (the runner-up), Team Adam's Joshua Davis (third place) and his own teammate Koryn Hawthorne (fourth place) to claim the trophy.

After the celebration was over, Sawyer and Pharrell joined the media to give their first reactions to the good news. Read on for what they had to say and our take on what Sawyer's victory means for The Voice, which will be back for its ninth season this fall.

Koryn Hawthorne & Pharrell Williams On 'The Voice' Journey
Continuing our look at each of the duos remaining on The Voice, after Monday night's last performance show we checked in with Koryn Hawthorne and her coach, Pharrell Williams.

What does Pharrell think is so special about Koryn (and her teammate and fellow finalist, Sawyer Fredericks)? What was it like for Koryn to record a song written by Pharrell? They told us on the red carpet at Universal Studios Hollywood.

"This whole journey has just been life-changing and amazing. I've grown so much as an artist, but I've grown as a person also," reflected Koryn. "It gets me emotional because I'm so...

'Strike Back' Flashback: Season 1, Episode 3

May 15th, 2015 12:08pm EDT
'Strike Back' Flashback: Picking Up The Pieces, Part 1
Having survived the worst hotel stay ever, Michael Stonebridge and Damien Scott make their way to South Africa in Strike Back's "Cinemax Season 1, Episode 3," which starts a new arc that changes the Section 20 team permanently. You'd think it's a little early for such a shakeup, but they really don't screw around on this show.

Action opens with Stonebridge, Scott and Marshall looking to make up for the squad's previous mistake by staking out three suspects connected to Latif. Needless to say, Scott causes a problem - although this one really isn't his fault, as the guy he's standing next t...

The Second Episode Of 'Lost in Transmission' Recap

May 15th, 2015 9:42am EDT
'Lost In Transmission' Recap: 'The Thing' - Orange Spells Danger
The second episode of Lost in Transmission, "The Thing," features as unique a car as you'll ever see. Naturally, our pal Rutledge Wood thinks this is awesome, while his partner in crime George Flanigen is much more concerned. We're sort of with George on this one.

The patient this week is a 1974 VW Thing, or as George puts it, "a shipping container with wheels." Kevin needs a little help putting it back together, and picking out another paint color, because this car is road cone orange with camouflage duct tape holding the windows together. He also wants it back in two weeks, because he dr...

'The Voice' Recap: Your Four Season 8 Finalists Are...
On Tuesday, The Voice unveiled the four finalists that the show will carry to next week's finals. It's only the second time since the series moved to its current format that there have been four finalists, with the Twitter Instant Save replacing last season's Wild Card as the last free pass back into the competition.

This season has been nail-bitingly tough, with three of the four coaches having just one artist remaining going into the semifinals - a change of pace from how things usually play out by this point, where one coach (usually named Adam Levine or Blake Shelton) has a numerical a...

'The Voice': Blake Shelton And Meghan Linsey Talk Season 8 Suces
On The Voice, nobody pushes around four-time champion Blake Shelton - except for maybe Meghan Linsey, who on Monday night made her bid to represent Team Blake in the season eight finals.

We caught up with Blake and Meghan on the red carpet at Universal Studios Hollywood to talk about Meghan's semifinal performances, how Blake coaches the woman who once opened for him, and if they feel the competition is really as close as it seems.

"Here's what's funny. She may be the only one that I've worked with on this show that I would say this about," Blake said. "With Meghan if I have an idea, it's...

Did 'The Good Wife' Season 6 Reach Its Full Potential?

May 11th, 2015 9:07am EDT
'The Good Wife' Finale Recap And Review: 'Wanna Partner?' - Let'
The sixth season of The Good Wife draws to a close with "Wanna Partner?," which sees Alicia Florrick put the finishing touches on her new career direction as well as tangle with the government one more time over a secret police facility detaining one of her clients. But does it cap off the season the way it should? Yes and no.

With her new home office all set up, Alicia is chatting with Eli and Peter, the latter of whom says he's been asked to run for President of the United States by the Illinois Democratic Committee.

Before she can do more than awkwardly chuckle at that, she gets a voic...
