'The Walking Dead' Recap: The 10 Most Badass Moments from 'Stran
“Strangers” was a much quieter episode than the season 5 premiere, but that didn’t make it any less bonkers. In fact, the quiet moments only made every moment more tension-filled. Every time the characters slow-mo walked through the covered woods, there was an ominous feeling following them with each step. As Season 4 taught us, there’s no safety, not even for a minute. And last week’s episode left a couple of hanging threads that come back to haunt our survivors in a major way.

Here are 10 of the most badass moments from “Strangers:”

Reunion Conversations and Forgiveness

The end of “No ...

'Homeland' Season 4 Episode 4 Recap: Do It For Your Country

'Homeland' Season 4 Episode 4 Recap: Do It For Your Country
Previously - Quinn tried to leave the CIA but you don’t leave the CIA unless Carrie says you can leave the CIA. Fara and Max are working with Carrie to acquire Aayan as an asset. And Quinn is SSSSOOOOO in love with Carrie, It’s, like, totally obvious. Jenn saw him, like, STALKER-LEVEL staring at her in Trig. It was totally pathetic. He’s kinda cute, though, if you don’t mind the PTSD stare.

How far is too far when it comes to your country? Is there such a thing? It doesn't look like it for Carrie Mathison. She used her body in service to her cause this episode, and it didn't require clothe...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Man Behind The Curtain

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Dead Drop' - The Ma
The sophomore (sort of) outing of Transporter: The Series sends Frank Stateside to deal with a figure from his past who, naturally, needs his old acquaintance to save the day. You may have heard this plot before, but when it includes our first look behind the curtain at what shaped Frank Martin, plus some entertaining setpieces along the way, one can't seriously argue with traversing some familiar territory.

There's a street race going on in Philadelphia, and not even a phone call from Dieter can derail Frank's best Fast & Furious impression. But of course, this isn't just a joyride; there...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Trojan Horsepower' - The Best New Ride Of 2014

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Trojan Horsepower'
Buckle up, because we've just found your new Saturday night obsession. Jumping off from the film trilogy, Transporter: The Series finally makes its American TV debut two years after its premiere - and with speed, style, entertaining stunts and a sterling performance from Chris Vance, it's absolutely worth the wait.

For those of you who haven't seen the movies, a quick primer: former SAS and Special Forces operative Frank Martin (Jason Statham in the films, now succeeded by Vance) is a freelance "transporter" who has only three rules: never change the deal, don't use any names, and never op...

'Blue Bloods' S5 Ep4: Did Hot Head Danny Use "Excessive Force"?

October 18th, 2014 12:20pm EDT

Did he jump or was he pushed?

That's the question of the day when "Detective Danny Reagan" (Donnie Wahlberg) is accused of throwing a young black man out of a third-floor window.

Danny and "Baez" (Marisa Ramirez) were taking a coffee break when they interrupted a robbery at a small bodega. They chased the suspect, who ran off after throwing hot coffee all over Baez, and Danny cornered the guy in the hallway of an apartment building. A little boy opened his door and was watching the two men, when Danny told him to go inside, but the kid didn't obey and heard Danny say, "Hands against the w...

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: The Curious Case of Connor Walsh

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: The Curious Case of Connor
Anyone else a little fatigued about all of these flashbacks? For me, it's because I’m not learning too much from them; I'm learning more about the present, which is more interesting. Case in point: what did we really learn about the season long mystery?

Other than the new fact that Asher knew his fellow law students were in Keating’s office the night they murdered her husband, we don’t learn much in these flashbacks. Michaela is still a hot mess, Rebecca’s oddly calm back at the Murder House and something has obviously cracked inside Connor.

The present is far more interesting than the fu...

'Scandal' Review: 4 Times Olivia is The Best and 4 Times Fitz is The Worst in 'The Bleep'

'Scandal' Review: 4 Times Olivia is The Best and 4 Times Fitz is
The biggest failure of season 3 was the slow destruction of Olivia Pope. A character that started out as a single-minded woman with an almost supernatural ability to fix problems and a policy for no crying became a weepy, wine-drinking, love sick girl. The transformation was a disservice to a character who was built on strength, all in the name of appeasing fans who were aboard the “Olitz” train.

To make matters worse, her major love interests could not be less appealing. Her married presidential boyfriend was often comfortable calling her a slut, manhandling her, and treating her like she...

'Jokers Wild' Sketchbook: 'Sing, Ring and Run' - We're Not The World

'Jokers Wild' Sketchbook: 'Sing, Ring and Run' - We're Not The W
In this week's episode of Jokers Wild, the Staten Island foursome create the worst charity anthem ever (or the best, depending on how you look at it). They also pay tribute to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hip-hop group Run-D.M.C., as much as three uncoordinated guys can, anyway. It's a musical - but still inappropriate - installment of sketches.

Intro: The fabulous foursome talking about doing good and giving back. Q claims that he makes charitable contributions every month, and Joe laments how many people in the world need help. So apparently the guys got together and "decided to make a cha...

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: Bonnie and Damon Need Their Own
Tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries season 6 took a turn for the better. We've had a lot of brooding and drama through the course of the series' six seasons. So we enjoyed some lighthearted banter, especially between Damon and Bonnie, and more playful storylines. Last night's entertaining episode of The Vampire Diaries, "Welcome to Paradise," proved four major facts about the Mystic Falls characters.

1. Damon Actually Loves Likes Bonnie

Most of this episode of The Vampire Diaries revolves around Damon and Bonnie's bickering. We can't say we're not used to it. Damon and Bonnie have ...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'A Legendary Fail' - Take Me Out
In this week's Impractical Jokers, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr have some stadium insecurities and get their attempted CSI on in the classroom. Needless to say, no one is going to pay these guys to keep the peace any time soon. But as if that's what they were trying to do.

Challenge #1: Foul Play
While posing as security team members at the local ballpark, the guys must say and do what they're told. This challenge is one of the most out of control in a while. Sal is tasked with interrogating a kid and gossiping with an elderly woman, but trips up when the guys give him a line about bringing "bombs...
