Did 'True Detective' Kill Off Its Main Character?

July 6th, 2015 9:30am EDT
'True Detective' Review: Musings On 'Maybe Tomorrow'
As suspected, True Detective was never going to be the type of show with the courage to kill off a main character in its second episode. Even though Ray Velcoro is the show’s most—and only—interesting character, that would have been a major, fascinating turning point for the show. It could have raised the very low stakes for the other characters and forced them to shine a bit more.

It doesn’t take long to reveal that Ray was only shot with buckshot, with no more damage than to his piss-soaked clothing. The problem with this sort of fake out is that the show just exposed itself as a show mo...

Starz ‘Power’: Rating Ghost’s Biggest Liabilities
Tasha isn’t the only one to pull the welcome mat from under Ghost’s feet, his ride-or-die crew are showing signs of him being persona non grata by cozying up to Kanan. So what’s the biggest drug dealer in New York to do? Study his liabilities and then eliminate his biggest one.

Holly

Currently in first place is Tommy’s girlfriend Holly. It’s bad enough she had no qualms about calling James ‘Ghost’ in front of his face, manipulating Tommy into telling her about the drug business, but now that she’s in the hands of the Feds, it’s not if she’ll snitch, it’s when. (Sigh) If only Ghost had f...

Anther 'Strike Back' Flashback Recap From Season 1

'Strike Back' Flashback: The Downfall of the Trojan Horse, Part
Well, this is it, Strike Back fans. Picking up where last week left off, we've come to the end of Cinemax season one - the conclusion of the year that introduced us to Damien Scott and Michael Stonebridge, and took action-adventure television to a whole new level. In "Cinemax Season 1, Episode 10," it's Section 20 versus Latif one more time for all the marbles, and not everyone's going to like the way it turns out.

The episode opens exactly where the last one ended: with Grant and Latif coming face to face. She wants to shoot him, but Sinclair reminds her that there are still two suicide b...

'Rookie Blue' Recap: 'Perfect Family'

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Perfect Family' - Perfect Imper
After Rookie Blue came back last week, there was plenty of personal drama to go around at 15 Division. Andy found out about Marlo, Diaz discovered who he was really fooling around with, and Chloe still couldn't get over Dov. In "Perfect Family," everyone's still pretty imperfect, but some crazy happenings make them realize that they need to get a grip on themselves.

As the episode begins, Andy and Marlo have their first conversation since the news broke, with Marlo promising that she won't come between Andy and Sam, who's trying to get back on Andy's good side. Andy doesn't think she has a...

'Hannibal': Which Major Character Did Hannibal Kill This Week?

July 3rd, 2015 6:31am EDT
Hannibal TV Series
"Contorno": A side dish, typically some kind of vegetable and typically served alongside the secondo (that is, the meat dish). Can be served hot or cold, raw or cooked, but never on the same plate as the meat.

Odd choice of title, isn't it? In much the same way that "Secondo" the episode didn't quite feel like the TV equivalent of hearty steak, "Contorno" is rich and filling and, appropriately, rare to the point of bloody. So much more than a little dish of broccolini, don't you think?

Ok, I'll put the food metaphors away for a while. But seriously- what a knockout hour of TV. Hannibal's ...

'Suits' Meets This Season’s First Adversary

July 2nd, 2015 9:05am EDT
'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Compensation' - Everybody Wants Their
Last week's season premiere of Suits proved that season five will not be an easy one for Harvey Specter, and in "Compensation" he's taking another blow. But he's not the only one who has a few lumps to swallow as we meet the season's first adversary and realize how dysfunctional this firm can get sometimes.

But first, here's Rachel sharing a meal with her father Robert (a returning Wendell Pierce). He chooses this time to hand her a prenuptial agreement he thinks she might need, because she has "assets to protect." Naturally, she doesn't take this well, but to placate him she agrees to loo...

'Suits' Star Rick Hoffman Gives Us Insight On This Season

'Suits' Star Rick Hoffman On Season 5: Louis 'Feels Great'
Gabriel Macht told us last week how Harvey Specter is dealing with the new season of Suits, so now it's time to get Louis Litt's side of the story. During our recent trip to the USA show's Toronto set, we sat down with Rick Hoffman to discuss how Louis feels about the Donna situation and his own continuing saga.

"He feels great. His name's on the wall. He's got Donna," Rick explained, but that doesn't mean that Louis is incapable of understanding how much her departure affects her and Harvey.

"I think he feels for Harvey. And has somewhat of an understanding because he knows how valuable ...

Is MTV's 'Scream' Worth Watching?

July 1st, 2015 9:18am EDT
Scream
Scream: The TV Series manages to find it's own identity, while still paying clear homage to the franchise. Scream: The TV Series introduces some character who feel scarily familiar. Noah could be a Randy doppelgänger but what separates the characters is that Noah already seems way more romantically prosperous. He likely won't have virginity as a fail-safe. Emma seems a bit more complex than Sidney, and Will and Jake don't seem as secretly evil as Billy and Stuart.

Scream: The TV Series borrows a lot of material from the movies, like a mask serial killer, a murder from the past that haunts ...

Meet Harvey Specter's New Assistant

'Suits' Has Found Harvey Specter's New Assistant
Suits fans know that as of the end of last season, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) was without his valued assistant Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty). And in last week's season premiere, Donna made it clear to Harvey that she's not coming back to work for him and he needed to find her replacement. She even gave him a list of options.

Well, it didn't take him too long. In tomorrow's new episode, "Compensation," fans will be introduced to Harvey's new secretary Gretchen Bodinski, played by Aloma Wright (best known as Maxine Landis in Days of Our Lives and Nurse Laverne Roberts on Scrubs) in what...

Recap: 'The Fosters' Explores Impact Of Powerful Words

June 30th, 2015 9:12am EDT
'The Fosters' Season 3 Episode 4 Recap: 'More Than Words' To Mak
Last night's episode of The Fosters explored the impact of two powerful words. Lena finally confronted her half-brother about what divided them years ago. Meanwhile, Jude finally decided that labels weren’t so bad.

The main portion of The Fosters’ “More Than Words” took place at an LGBTQ prom, and the Fosters’ home at a dinner. This is the second episode of the season that a Stef and Lena dinner has been filled with so much tension. Maybe they should stop having guests over for dinner.

Untamed Hearts

Mat surprises Mariana by driving to see her, while still on tour. He wants them to hav...
