‘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...

'Supernatural Recap: The Heat Is On

December 3rd, 2014 12:07pm EST
Supernatural Season 10 Episode 8
One of my few complaints about "Supernatural" has always been its lack of diversity. When the main characters are all white guys, something has got to give. Tuesday's "Hibbing 911" offered a double-shot of the girlpower and poked a bit of a fun at the now classic buddy-cop movie, "The Heat."

Grab your favorite flavor of lollipop, and let's dive in, shall we?

Old Characters, New Fun | Fan-favorite Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) returns to once again audition for the next attempt at a "Supernatural" spin-off. She's quite literally towing baggage she can barely carry to the Minnesota-...

I was all set to label “Grey’s Anatomy’s” winter finale a snooze fest, until the last 20 minutes told a completely different story.

Still reeling from “Risk’s” ricochets, below are the 5 most shocking moments from the winter finale.

'Law & Order SVU': Ray Rice Themed Episode: No More

November 20th, 2014 10:26am EST
'Law & Order SVU' Recap: Ray Rice Themed Episode: No More
Has everyone recovered from last week’s “Chicago Crossover” episodes? I hope so because it’s back to “SVU’s” regularly scheduled headline-swiping episodes.

In “SVU’s” 9th episode “Spousal Privilege,” the detectives tackle (no pun intended) a pro-footballer that may be abusing his girlfriend. The whole episode is pretty vague in terms of how often the abuse occurs, mainly because the baby mama Paula (Meagan Good) refuses to admit it’s happening, until she doesn’t have a choice.

An online image-infused bulletin board, you know the one that posted the celebs leaked nude pics, posted security...

In “Grey’s Anatomy’s” penultimate episode “Could We Start Again, Please?” the docs tackle whether or not second chances are deserved for present and past mistakes.

‘Law & Order SVU’ Recap: ‘Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. Crossover’

November 13th, 2014 10:31am EST
Law & Order SVU
The much hyped “Chicago Crossover” episode of “Law & Order SVU” has finally landed on our TV screens. Was it worth the money in advertising? Eh, maybe if you’re a “Chicago P.D.” fan. Picking up where the Chi-town firefighters left off on “Chicago Fire”—firefighters uncover some child porn pics in a burning house that could be traced to New York and “P.D.” detective Lindsay’s half brother is one of the victims—SVU squad finds the stills are connected to a live stream site put up by a child sex trafficking ring.

'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, ...

‘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...
