'How I Met Your Mother' Series Finale: Was It Legendary?

April 1st, 2014 7:43am EDT
How I Met Your Mother
"How I Met Your Mother" completed its legendary nine-season run with a series finale that was lovingly poignant without losing its trademark humor. The series finale zoomed more than fifteen years in the future, chronicling major milestones in the gangs' lives who promised to always be there for the "big moments" but still grew apart.

SPOILERS TO FOLLOW!

Marshall and Lily (Jason Segel and Alyson Hannigon respectively) indeed went to Rome and had two more children. Marshall finally achieved his dreams of becoming a judge (aka Judge Fudge" or "Fudge Supreme"). Due to the demands of Robin...

'Supernatural' 9.17 Recap: Soul Train

March 26th, 2014 10:10am EDT
Supernatural
It's tempting to think that after nine seasons, that "Supernatural" has wrung out every ounce of brilliance and cleverness their demon-hunting brothers premise contains. "Mother’s Little Helper," directed by the co-star Misha Collins, proved that notion wrong in epic fashion.

Grab your favorite glass jar and let's dive in, shall we?

The Case

It was Freaky Tuesday in the "Supernatural" bunker when Sam leaves to investigate what seems like a slam-dunk possession-driven murder in Milton, Illinois and Dean stays back to “research.” The murder, as we saw in the cold open, is a violent o...

'Supernatural' Recap: Know Thy Selfie

Sam and Dean have encountered many dastardly demons and douchebags during their hunting escapades, but none have been more irksome than The Ghostfacers. In last night's episode of "Supernatural” called “Thinman,” the duo resurfaced after six years with their usual shenanigans and a surprising amount of angst.

Before we dive in, I must confess that I have held a grudge against the Ghostfacers for years. I enjoyed their episode way back in season 1’s “Hell House” however when they returned in season 3, it was the first episode back after the writers' strike forced all shows to go dark m...

With the Winter Olympics bobsledding into that great competition in the sky for another four years, it's time for "Supernatural" to continue its angst-filled scare-a-thon. The appropriately titled "Captives" found Castiel assuming a very different, yet familiar position and our favorite prophet returned to yank on everyone's heartstrings like Quazimodo does cathedral bells.

Grab your lockpicks and let's dive in, shall we?

Angel Watch

I’ve actually missed Castiel over the last few episodes, so it’s good to see him back in the fold even if his scenes tanked the momentum of the episode...

Every four years, the Winter Olympics inspires nations through through extreme snowy sports, the human spirit and a centuries' old flame. As much as I enjoyed the tear-jerking interviews and the incredible performances, I'm glad the Olympic torch has been extinguished and the television can resume its regularly scheduled programming. In honor of all of the returning shows, here are five spoilers you need to know on "New Girl", "Hawaii Five-0" and more...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Frat Diet

After nearly 200 episodes, the "Supernatural" masterminds are adept at tempering emotional angst with slapstick humor. "The Purge" tried to walk that artistic tightrope, balancing the emotional angst between Sam and Dean with the humor surrounding the weekly case. Due to the workout Yogi Sammy gave our feels, fans are bound to be sore well into the Olympic hiatus.

Grab your yoga mat, and let’s downward dive in, shall we?

The Case

The case was fairly entertaining with a slew of colorful characters ranging from a cheating competitive eater to a sheriff with a love of donuts that rivals...

'Supernatural's' Spin-Off Gets Tribal

'Supernatural's' Spin-Off Gets Tribal
“Supernatural,” The CW’s longest running series, is finally getting a spin-off. According to TVLine.com, “Supernatural: Tribes” centers on the escalating war between several monster families vying for power in Chicago, and of course, a hunter bent on revenge. Sounds downright Shakespearean, right?

The lead character is Ennis Roth, a presumably handsome man with “a strong sense of justice” who will cross paths with Sam and Dean (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles respectively) after someone close to him is killed and “will learn the staggering truth” about the supernatural war brewing in ...

Last's week's game-changing episode of "Supernatural" resonated with me for days, and I couldn't wait to see how it rippled into this week's. Unfortunately, "Sharp Teeth" had as much bite as a toothless, old cat.

Grab your silver bullets, and let's dive in, shall we?

The brothers unite to solve the case of Garth's sudden re-emergence as a hit-and-run victim in Grantsburg, Wisconsin, where there has been a rash of mutilated animals. Despite the palpable crackling tension between Sam and Dean trying to slip Sam like Taylor Swift does boyfriends, the brothers still work a case like a the...

If last week’s episode of “Supernatural” ripped your heart out, this week’s installment fused it back together with badassery, a bit of heart and a few artful liberties with the world’s oldest sibling rivalry. 

Let’s dive in, shall we? 

While Sam tries to avenge Kevin with the “harmless” dregs of grace the sloppy “psycho angel” Gadreel left inside him, Dean opts for good, old-fashioned revenge.  Of course, Crowley arrives to harsh his buzz and possibly rescue his loins.  "This bar is a bust.  That waitress is trouble with a capital VD, and your prey, Gadreel, has left the building.  It’s ...

Congrats, you survived the holidays, the Polar Vortex, the television hiatuses, and the seventeen "I don't have anything prepared!!" speeches at "The Golden Globes."  Your reward is this week's stunning episode of "Supernatural."  "Road Trip" was the intensely poetic and extremely timely conclusion to the first half of the season in which Sam finally learns he's been touched by an angel; Dean deals with the consequences of his impulsive and desperate decision to save his brother; and Kevin Tran is still dead.  

Admittedly, I wasn't happy with the reveal that Sam was once again possessed by...
