Jamie Lee Curtis And Emma Roberts To Star In 'Scream Queens' On Fox

December 10th, 2014 2:50pm EST
'American Horror Story' Creator Nabs Jamie Lee Curtis And Emma R
Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts have a lot of screaming in their future.

Does that sound weird? Well, whether it does or not, it's true- both actresses have signed on as the lead characters in "Scream Queens," the latest TV series from "Glee" and "American Horror Story" mastermind Ryan Murphy.

Also in charge of "Scream Queens" are Brad Falchuk, who was a major part of all of Murphy's previous endeavors, and Ian Brennan, who was a co-creator of "Glee."

According to The Wrap (who broke the story), the series will be a horror comedy, centering on a college campus where students are getti...

'The Mindy Project': A Christmas Holiday Story

December 10th, 2014 11:31am EST
the Mindy Project - Christmas
I love Christmas episodes and thankfully, so does The Mindy Project, which has nailed all of its Christmas episodes. Make no mistake: this is not a holiday episode, as the office boos about, but a Christmas episode which has so many punchlines and side characters (except a notable absent Tamara) that it’s just a blast to watch.

The episode sticks itself to another Danny and Mindy plot, but this time it doesn’t feel repetitive even if it’s the same material we’ve seen before: Mindy wants to be engaged my Christmas. She’s stalking and investigating Danny’s weird habits only to learn he boug...

'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...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Jake's Nemesis Saves (And Ruins) Christmas

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Jake's Nemesis Saves (And Ruins) Chr
Has anyone else felt like "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was in a wee bit of a slump? Since around the Halloween episode, maybe. As though, as gut-busting (and believe us, guts have been busted) each episode was, there was something dragging it down?

Well, whether you agree or not (or are sharpening an Andy Samberg-shaped penknife for a swift and brutal defense of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine's" honor), "The Pontiac Bandit Returns" was an absolute hoot. Naysayers and yaysayers alike have a lot to love this week.

Kinda like "Halloween II," "The Pontiac Bandit Returns" makes a pretty general stab at sequelizi...

'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-...

'Parks And Recreation' Returns To NBC In January

'Parks And Recreation' Returns To NBC In January - But There's A
Dammit Jerry!

The seventh and final season of Parks and Recreation will return on Tuesday, Jan. 13 with back-to-back episodes from 8-9 PM each week leading up to the hourlong series finale on Tuesday, Feb. 24 following The Voice.

“In an effort to give it the send-off it deserves, we wanted to ‘eventize’ the final season to maximize the impact of these episodes, which really do take the show to a new level," said NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt in a statement. "The highly-anticipated one-hour finale will air behind ‘The Voice’ in order to lead the largest audience possible int...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine': Love Amongst The Terrifying Baby Dolls

December 1st, 2014 9:07am EST
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
It has risen once again. The great and terrible beast, the killer of sitcoms, destroyer of comedies.

Sexual tension.

Because last night's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" shoved us back into the "will they, won't they" of Jake Peralta and Amy Santiago. One wrong move, and this wacky workplace sitcom is bogged down in dreary relationship gobbledygook.

No one cares whether Twink Tucker, probably-Irish longshoreman, comes across the woman (man?) of his dreams. We want to point and laugh at the name Twink Tucker.

Luckily for everyone involved, "The Road Trip" addressed the screamingly obvious Jake/Amy ...

'The Mindy Project' Recap: Blind Dates, Double Dates, Online Dates

November 26th, 2014 11:02am EST
The Mindy Project
What’s most impressive about tonight’s episode is how tightly plotted it is and how uniform the themes are. Usually, there is a clearly an A plot and a B plot and maybe a few little one liners for the cast. Tonight’s plots are interweaved together, showcasing these cartoonish characters as being more of family than anything else.

Annette is overbearing, over involved and judgmental, and Mindy does a great job of putting up with her. But when she interrupts her erotica bath with Danny, it’s another final straw that makes Mindy decide to take action. That means setting Annette up with a very...

So, without further ado below are the five cliffhangers from “Sprang Break, Pt. 2) that you’ll be obsessing over till season 5.
