'The Mindy Project': Diary Of A Mad Indian Woman

November 19th, 2014 12:07pm EST
The Mindy Project
If there was an episode for Mindy Kaling to submit to the Emmys, it should be this one. Sure, there are episodes that showcase her character’s amazing chemistry and romance with Danny Castellano, or where she spars against Annette Castellano or wingman for Peter. But this episode is a welcome change to the season three Mindy formula. Mindy’s a doctor again and finally, finally, there is a crack in TV’s best relationship since Tammy and Coach Taylor.

Mindy, equipped with a brand new hair-do courtesy of a dead woman, wants Danny to spend more time at her place, which is an apartment full of...

Laura Spencer Doubles Her Success In 'Big Bang Theory' And 'Bone
What's better than a recurring part on one hit TV show? How about recurring parts on two hit TV shows?

That's what's happened for actress Laura Spencer, who not only plays Raj's girlfriend Emily Sweeney on CBS's The Big Bang Theory, but also wears the lab coat of intern Jessica Warren on FOX's Bones. That means on any given Thursday, more than 20 million TV viewers could be seeing her.

We caught up with Laura last week to get a little dish on each series, talk about how she pulls off double duty, and ask her how she's going to program her DVR on Thursday nights.

After all, what's a girl ...

1. Jenna’s College Bound

J-Dawg has finally, finally landed in a four-year U that is all too happy to have her, or at the very least accepted her. Yayyy, Jenna. But take note, kiddies don’t be too eager to celebrate. Especially if you’re being stopped by the Mexican police for speeding (looking at you, Lacey). ...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Celebrate Thanksgiving With An Anthrax Scare!

November 17th, 2014 9:38am EST
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Thanksgiving means so many things to the 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' precinct. Some love their turkey day (and insist it ONLY be referred to as "Turkey Day"- thanks Boyle) while others deride the holiday and think turkey tastes like napkins.

But no one gets the holiday they wanted this year once a package of unidentified white powder ends up at the station.

It's an anthrax scare Thanksgiving! And worse, Captain Holt and Seargent Terry are out on other business, and for some terrible reason they've left Jake in charge (in any other circumstance, Amy would leap at the opportunity to sit in Holt's ...

'Supernatural': 200th Episode Was A Testament To Show's Creativity

November 12th, 2014 11:28am EST
Supernatural - 200th Episode Fan Fiction
It's almost to impossible to think that a little horror show with just two leads that was wavered on cancellation for three consecutive seasons in a row would soldier on to celebrate 200 episodes. With last night's "Fan Fiction," it joins a pantheon of shows lucky enough to last 10 seasons and beyond. "Supernatural" has aired on every weeknight, outlasted the network that created it, and outlived other mainstream successes like "How I Met Your Mother," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," and "The Sopranos." And it has done it all with virtually no promotion.

How is that possible? Episode 200, ...

'The Mindy Project' Recap: We Need To Talk About Annette

November 12th, 2014 11:06am EST
'The Mindy Project' Season 3 Episode 7 Recap: We Need To Talk Ab
"We Need To Talk About Annette” is one of Mindy’s finer episodes by far because it pits Mindy versus Annette against one another. Are the Mindy writers taking from the Annette well a little too much? Possibly. But pitting these two against each other doesn’t feel tired yet.

What’s interesting about this episode is that it sets itself up to be about some more soul searching for Mindy. Through Annette’s shoplifting crimes, maybe Mindy will learn stealing is bad. Instead we are reminded that Mindy is petty, but loyal and that she really doesn’t change. She’s the perfect foil for another woman...

‘Awkward’ Recap ‘Over the Hump’

November 12th, 2014 8:37am EST
Awkward
What’s that old saying about sticking to the old, tried and true and rejecting someone/something new? Thinking…thinking…Got it! “Familiarity breeds contempt.” It’s “Awkward” overarching theme in “Over the Hump.”

The ep opens with down-on-her-luck Jenna ruminating over the cold hard fact she has yet to get a big envelope from a college and it’s nearing spring break. Lacey has the perfect pick-me-up: Ally rented a beach house in Mexico for spring break in honor of Sadie getting into Columbia University.

Jenna says she’d rather wallow in her self-pity than attend a Sadie-based party. Lacey t...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Sleeping WIth the Enemy

November 10th, 2014 9:40am EST
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" hasn't been pushing the Jake/Amy thing much this season, but eventually Jake would have to move on in earnest. Or start stalking her. One of the two.

And now, he has: "Jake and Sophia" is the christening of a new relationship; a relationship that's stated pretty plainly in the episode title. So long, Amy. Hello Sophia (played by guest star Eva Longoria).

How are the sparks between the two? Well, they're... not particularly sparky. In setting these two up for a relationship (a relationship that'll last all of three episodes, if Longoria's contract is to be believed), "...

'Robot Chicken' Remains Awesomely Irreverant

Interview: 'Robot Chicken' Remains Awesomely Irreverant
Everytime I interview the 'Robot Chicken' cast, I wonder if there's ever anything new I can ask them and if there's anything new they can do, idea wise. Considering they've desecrated almost everything in our 80s childhood from Disney to Nancy Drew to Hasbro since 2005, is there REALLY anything else they can mock, satirize or defecate upon? According to 'Robot Chicken' writer, Breckin Myer, yes. Yes, there is. As long as TV continues to release new shows, companies release new toys and studios release new films like 'Guardians of the Galaxy' they will always, ALWAYS have new stuff. So, eff ...
