'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Diva' - Stopping The Music

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Diva' - Stopping Th
Transporter: The Series gets a little bit glamorous this week, as Frank Martin has the job of protecting a celebrity that other folks would rather see deceased. As his assignments go, this one is fairly rote, and so it's not surprising that the script is, too.

But if that's not surprising, neither are the qualities which redeem "Diva," because they're the same ones that have always made this series great: first-rate fight choreography and the ability of Chris Vance to convey things that we're pretty sure weren't scripted.

Frank is in Prague, because for whatever reason he's stuck handling...

Ryan Gage Bids Farewell To 'Hobbit' Franchise With 'Battle Of Th
Ryan Gage is making grand moves in his career. He returns as Alfrid for the final film in the Hobbit series, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which opens today.

Then he'll reprise his role as King Louis XIII on BBC One's The Musketeers, that launches its second season on January 2 in the UK and January 17 in the US. He's no stranger to high-profile projects and big characters.

We spoke to Ryan last week about saying goodbye to the Hobbit films and returning to The Musketeers, and how one follows up working on a massive Peter Jackson epic.

Reprising his role from The Desolation ...

'Transporter: The Series': 'We Go Back' - What Gets Left Behind

December 14th, 2014 9:01am EST
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'We Go Back' - What
This week's installment of Transporter: The Series is one of executive producer Frank Spotnitz's favorites, and it's not hard to see why. Another glimpse into the past of Frank Martin continues to flesh out how he became the man we know and love, while there's a whopper of a performance from Chris Vance and a few tiny bits and pieces of what this new-look series is supposed to be.

Have another flashback to Frank's military history, and it's not a good one. Our hero and two of his colleagues are pinned down by heavy fire, at least until Frank can procure a car - no surprise, it's an Audi. U...

'Arrow': 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'

December 11th, 2014 9:35am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'
Oh, mid-season finale cliffhangers. How cruel you are.

But few are as cruel as "Arrow"- because we can't even call "The Climb's" ending a "cliffhanger." That implies Oliver still had the hand strength to hang off a cliff edge, and at the end of this hour he was way too stabbed-to-death to handle that.

Really, this is more of a cliff-flopper. Cliff-dier, maybe.

But it was a pretty intense way to end a year of "Arrow," so let's not overthink the semantics. Instead, let's get down to the last "Arrow" countdown of 2014.

10. The League of Assassins Goes Kill-Crazy!

‘Law & Order SVU’ Midseason Finale

December 11th, 2014 9:08am EST
Law & Order SVU
Welcome back, SVU-viewers. Is it just me or did those two weeks on hiatus feel like two years? Now that we’ve seen every holiday-based SNL made, we’re back to NBC’s regularly scheduled "Law & Order SVU" show about sex crime scenarios, or what I’ve been nicknaming it lately “Ripped from the Headlines: Real Life Sex Crime Re-enactments,” but on a serious note the midseason finale covers a topic that should be in more headlines: backlogs of rape kits that go uninvestigated throughout the country.

Given the amount of sexual assaults happening, if you read daily papers, it’s definitely a releva...

'Supernatural' Winter Finale Review: Three Stooges

December 10th, 2014 11:24am EST
Supernatural
Dog strollers. Lip injections. Winter finales. What do these three things have in common? They are hideous inventions that make me worry about the future of our society. As a TV blogger, I encounter the last two more often than I care to admit. “Supernatural’s” winter finale entitled “The Things We Left Behind” was cluttered with the drama of secondary characters which left little room to focus on Sam and Dean’s predicament with that pesky Mark of Cain.

It is a cute parallel that Dean was giggling at old episodes of “The Three Stooges” bungling through tasks and hurting othres in the...

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Yep, [SPOILER] Was Exactly What You Thought It Was

December 10th, 2014 9:31am EST
'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Yep, [HUGE SPOILER] Was Exactly
As with every other "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." recap you'll read this week, this one comes with a hearty disclaimer.

SPOILERS. The most spoilery of spoilers; spoilers that dictate the fate of the ongoing Marvel universe and radically change the basic setup of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Ready? Cool.

Like it says up in the title, the giganto-reveal from last night's "What They Become" is the exact thing everyone was expecting. The secret temple, the obelisk and the alien writing all stem from one thing: the Inhumans.

The Inhumans being a particular group of people experimented on by ancient K...

'The Flash': Christmas With The Reverse-Flash

'The Flash' Recap: Christmas With The Reverse-Flash
"The Man in the Yellow Suit" gave us everything we could ever want in "The Flash's" mid-season finale. Namely, a man in a yellow suit.

The Reverse-Flash has had almost zero screen time this season (up until last night, that is), only talked about in whispers or blurs of yellow that no one's really capable enough to describe. And now he's here, in the flesh and taunting Barry outright.

Though he spent a fair chunk of time onscreen, the mustard-colored speedster only popped off lines like “Your destiny is to lose to me, just as your mother's destiny was to die that night." Or, "if you want...
