'Under The Dome' Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: Hooray For Hoarders!

July 29th, 2014 9:19am EDT
Under the Dome
So far, each of episode of "Under the Dome's" second season has contained some kind of terrible, mysterious threat. Like magnets, butterflies, or a particularly lethal strain of swine flu.

And in every instance, the people of Chester's Mill have bounced back without any noticeable change in demeanor. Acid rain doesn't stop them. Having most of the town obliterated by magnets is barely worth noticing. Whatever the horrifying weekly crisis may be, these Chester's Millians can roll with it.

Unless Big Jim is put in jail. Under those circumstances, it'll take exactly one night for the entire ...

'Teen Wolf' Recap: Teenage Assassins Meet Their Demise, Everyone Embraces For Other Reasons

July 29th, 2014 8:35am EDT
Teen Wolf
This was such a heavy episode of Teen Wolf. After last week’s shenanigans, I figured it just be another week of Teenage Assassins, but instead Teen Wolf plays on its relationships more than anything.

There's something to be said for this transitionary year of Teen Wolf.Sure, it's basically ignored most of its core players -- there has been no talk of Isaac or Danny, for example -- but it's also putting the emotional stuff on these relationships we've watched for four seasons now. I don't think I'd care about this show at all if it weren't for the Scott and Stiles scenes and Lydia's friends...

'Masters Of Sex' Recap: Top Moments From 'Fight'

'Masters Of Sex' Recap: Top Moments From 'Fight'
Here are the top moments from an amazing bottle episode of Masters of Sex:

Setting

Most of “Fight” takes place on a single night, in a single hotel room, during one of Virginia and Bill’s session. The first two episodes of the season demonstrated that work-only affair between the two colleagues had been taking place in a hotel, under the assumed name of Dr. Francis Holden, but left much to the imagination. In “Fight” we not only get to see the contents of a night between these two, but also feel the atmosphere.

Besides a few short scenes, the episode is solely shot within the hotel room,...

'The Strain' Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: Dude, Where's My Crotch?

July 28th, 2014 9:15am EDT
The Strain
Before we begin, let's give a quick shout-out to everybody involved with that opening "Eichorst covers his horrible vampire features with simulated human" sequence. TV is not a medium known for the highest quality of special effects (and as nifty as "The Strain" is, the CGI tongue spikes can look a little dodgy sometimes). But that was some grade-A makeup work. Kudos, you vampire freaks!

Alright, now for the endless joy and squickyness of "Gone Smooth." Last night's episode was all about our four survivors (well, three, really, because Ms. Smarmy Lawyer Lady was too busy decomposing to mak...

'Ray Donovan' Season 2, Episode 3 Recap: Adventures In Pornography

'Ray Donovan' Season 2, Episode 3 Recap: Adventures In Pornograp
There is an established pecking order on "Ray Donovan." Family-based dramaticisms come first; then, Mickey and his kooky shenanigans; then, time permitting, Ray patching up the careers of various Hollywood types.

"Gem and Loan" does away with this entirely. That's a wonderful thing, because "Gem and Loan" is easily the strongest episode so far this season.

Here, the family schtick and the celebrity cover-up schtick are lumped into the same category. Bridget is a bright student, so much so that she's eligible for a powerfully ritzy private school. Unfortunately for her, it's also the priva...

The Suitless, Savvy Women of 'Suits' & Their Unrealistic Fashion Proclivities

The Suitless, Savvy Women of 'Suits' & Their Unrealistic Fashion
“Do I have anything to worry about?” I asked my husband, Neil, who is a partner at a Manhattan law firm. We were watching ‘Suits’ and Pearson Specter’s Managing Partner “Jessica” (Gina Torres) had just shimmied into a colleague’s office early in the morning wearing a tight, knit, off the shoulder dress that some of us would probably only don for a late dinner. Not only was it slinky, it was white. Aside from my wedding day – and the occasional T-shirt, I don’t wear that color. There would be ink and/or coffee running down the front of it by lunchtime.

“Do attorneys at your firm dress like ...

'Exant' Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: Wish You Were Here

'Exant' Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: Wish You Were Here
It’s a moot point but Molly was probably safer on the Seraphim than back home. Think about it, at least she had only one ghost/alien/boyfriend haunting her, now a whole SWAT team is gunning for her like she’s wearing a target on her back. In “Extant’s” third episode “Wish You Were Here,” we get a few more pieces of this cryptic puzzle.

The episode launches with the deputy director tracing Doc Sam’s built-in GPS tracker to the vet hospital where she performed Molly’s ultrasound. After scrolling past some scans of pre-mature pups, he spots Molly’s very human 14-week old fetus. He brings the ...
