'Rookie Blue' Season Finale Recap: Sam And Andy Finally Get Married

'Rookie Blue' Season Finale Recap And Review: '74 Epiphanies'
The big news about the Rookie Blue season finale is that Sam Swarek and Andy McNally, after being off and on and off again and on again, are finally getting married. But there's more to say about "74 Epiphanies" too, including that threat of restructuring the office and whether or not this is the last episode of this show. If it is, at least it ended with a happy day for somebody.

Cases at 15 Division don't stop just because there's a wedding going on, though. Inspector Jarvis is riding hard on Traci because a murder victim is related to a prominent defense attorney who's sitting at Jarvis...

'Big Brother' Recap: The Show Needs A Massive Shakeup

9/4/2015 10:00am EDT
Big brother
Double evictions used to be exciting. The original concept was shortened week, introduced in season 5, in which a whole week’s worth of game was done over a couple of days. Then the fast forward was introduced, where everything was done in the span of one episode. In the past, it has resulted in finally getting out big players who formerly dominated so that the underdog can have a chance to win. Often times, the unexpected happens or something viewers have been dying to see, from Keesha getting rid of mortal enemy Ollie in BB10 to Jeff seeing his comeuppance for his demanding entitled seaso...

'Review With Forrest MacNeill' Recap, Season 2, Episode 6

9/4/2015 4:12am EDT
review
With its veritable hodgepodge of life experiences on the menu, it is appropriate that this episode should be the one to confirm that the review selection process is totally random. It seems that week after week, Forrest MacNeil must live through another nightmare. One might surmise, then, that the process is not as random as Forrest has been led to believe, but that instead perhaps someone (say, Grant) has been manipulating it so that only the most intense options appear. But such rigging is unnecessary when the damage Forrest incurs is so often wildly disproportionate to a more typical exa...

The Drama Officially Begins On 'Awkward's' Final Season

'Awkward' 501 Recap: Matty is Betrayed
The first episode of “Awkward’s” final season is here at last. And boy did things really hang out. No, literally, five minutes into the episode the whole senior class is buck naked in a janitor closet. Because it’s senior streak day, Matty’s lame ass version of a prank. As if it’s not just a desperate attempt to see Jenna naked again. Not that J-dawg was turning a blind eye to his pecs. Yet, they didn’t hold her interest long when new bae Brian—the Marine she hooked up with on Spring Break—is sending hot pics. Jenna happily shares them with the still engaged Tamara, who believes a face to f...

Kelly Goodweather Has Become ‘The Strain’s’ Newest, Nastiest Villain

8/31/2015 4:05pm EDT
The Strain
The Strain hasn’t really known what to do with Kelly Goodweather this season. Granting her vampire sentience? Supplying her with an army of creepy vampire kiddos? Both solid plays. But both were taken from the original “Strain” book series, and both were introduced in the season premiere.

Since then? Eh. Every episode has had the same little dash of Kelly. There she is! Hot on the trail of our heroes, with those little vampire kids in tow. Is she actually going to catch up with them? Oh, guess not. Maybe next week.

Last week’s hour was much more involved- a bona fide Kelly fight scene! An...

'Rick And Morty' Recap

8/31/2015 9:14am EDT
Rick vs. Zeep
“Rick and Morty” is thoroughly imaginative with its sci-fi premises, enough so that it could get along just on the strength of its intellectual or playful sides. But its emotional truth bombs and moral underpinnings take it to the next level. With this mix consistent through most episodes, the potential problems of characters learning the same lessons over and over presents itself. Rick has realized more than once the importance of caring, yet he does not apply that care to the universe that runs his spaceship battery. It is fair to say, though, that Rick may be depressed and accordingly, h...

'Big Brother' Recap: Lame Comebacks, Mean Girls, Fakest Showmance Ever & More

'Big Brother' Review: Knuckleheads, Mean Girls, and Fake Romance
Vanessa is in power which can only mean one thing: this week is going to be confusing, emotional, dramatic, and crazy. Vanessa is the saving grace of this season. Not because she has a winning personality or is a strategic genius or is even any fun to watch. It’s because she just a little bit off in every aspect of being a good Big Brother player. Is she a strong competitor? Well, she’s managed to win competitions when she needs to, including the shortest endurance competition yet. But her HOHitis makes her unbearable. Does she have a strong social game? She formed the strongest alliance fr...

Samantha Steffen's Texts To Joe Bailey Revealed

Joe Bailey Shares Samantha's Texts: Was Sam's Ultimate Goal To M
Bachelor in Paradise star Joe Bailey promised to share Samantha Steffen's texts after his elimination from the show, and he came through. One week after his appearance on ABC's live After Paradise show, Joe turned to Twitter to set the record straight about Samantha's dishonesty.

Did Sam want Joe to stay because she was interested in a relationship with him or was she using him as a placeholder until Nick Peterson arrived? Although Joe's actions didn't win him any points with fans or his co-stars, Sam's revealing texts clearly make her one of the most manipulative villains in the history o...

Should ‘Hannibal’s’ Third Season Have Followed The Books So Closely?

8/30/2015 10:06pm EDT
Hannibal TV Series
That’s it, folks. Hannibal’s over. It’s been a good run (phenomenal, really) and there are roughly 800,000 questions I’ve got after witnessing “The Wrath of the Lamb’s” final blood orgy of a cliffhanger (a literal cliffhanger, no less). But here’s the question that I think is most pressing:

Should Hannibal have clung so closely to Thomas Harris's novels this season?

This year’s been quite the departure from Hannibal season past. Those first two years started with the obvious broad strokes Thomas Harris provided (characters, settings, etc) and built their very own framework. The more exact...

Are 'Bachelor In Paradise' Stars Carly And Kirk Still Together?

Did Carly And Kirk Break Up After 'Bachelor In Paradise'? Spoile
The Bachelor in Paradise season finale is one week away, and many fans are wondering if Carly and Kirk will leave the show as a couple or break up before the final rose ceremony set to air September 7 on ABC.

Carly Waddell and Kirk DeWindt hit it off on the season premiere and have been one of the few drama-free couples in Paradise. Although Kirk revealed mid-season that he was a bit hesitant to jump back into a relationship after recently ending a two-year relationship, he seemed to be all-in after his overnight date with Carly.

"I should embrace this right now because it's really good,"...
