With 'Constantine,' Harold Perrineau Gets His Wings
As if Harold Perrineau wasn't cool enough as the bassist of the most underrated TV band, now he's gained supernatural powers as an angelic sidekick on NBC's new drama Constantine.

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: Maybe The Show Should Spend
How To Get Away With Murder has an interesting problem to deal with: do we show the how or the why? It's chosen how nearly every time and it's not making the show stronger.

Look at the season-long murder mysteries: the murder of Lila Stanguard, the college student who was most definitely sleeping with future murder victim number two, Sam Keating. Usually on shows like these, the victims are really fleshed out to feel like real people and to gain our interest. Shows like Twin Peaks and Veronica Mars did this was aplomb, but How To Get Away With Murder is neither of these shows.

But it hits Olivia right to the core. Because as far as she knows, as far as she’s been told in “The Key,” that’s exactly what she is.
