Interview: 'Robot Chicken' Remains Awesomely Irreverant
Everytime I interview the 'Robot Chicken' cast, I wonder if there's ever anything new I can ask them and if there's anything new they can do, idea wise. Considering they've desecrated almost everything in our 80s childhood from Disney to Nancy Drew to Hasbro since 2005, is there REALLY anything else they can mock, satirize or defecate upon? According to 'Robot Chicken' writer, Breckin Myer, yes. Yes, there is. As long as TV continues to release new shows, companies release new toys and studios release new films like 'Guardians of the Galaxy' they will always, ALWAYS have new stuff. So, eff ...

'The Mindy Project' Recap: 'Caramel Princess Time' Focus On Our Three Favorite Characters

November 5th, 2014 10:55am EST
'The Mindy Project' Season 3 Episode 6 Recap: 'Caramel Princess
What The Mindy Project may have been missing with the past few episodes is just some good old-fashioned character stories. Did we really need Mindy’s dalliance with a lesbian doctor? No. This episode tries to correct that bad taste left in viewer’s mouths by focusing on its favorite three characters Mindy, Danny and Peter with some typical Mindy humor.

What drives the Mindy and Danny stories this episode is Mindy’s inconsiderate perpetual lateness, a character quirk that directly hurts Danny’s fragile psyche. What the episode does so well to resolve this issue by separating them to work it...

kat and seb
In the episode entitled And The DJ Face, “Max” (Kat Denning) is dating a hot DJ named “Sebastian” (Jesse Metcalfe). Ok, well maybe not dating; he’s her Mr. Tuesday night. But any dreams of dancing ‘til dawn in some exclusive downtown night club, where she sashays past the velvet rope because her guy got her on the list are dashed when Max finds out that Sebastian spins at Whole Foods.

Max is quite embarrassed about his supermarket gig until “Caroline” (Beth Behrs) reminds her roommate that she used to fold sweaters at The GAP, a job Max considers even below the time she worked as a bar bac...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Season 2, Episode 5 Recap: Shocking Secrets Revealed! In Monogrammed Jammies!

November 3rd, 2014 9:28am EST
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
A mole? In the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" precinct?!

It's more likely than you'd think (also, far less likely, for reasons we'll get into in just a bit).

Also, a police station mole is the kickoff for the informatively titled "The Mole," and two of the three plot threads contained within.

First, is the obvious: Captain Holt has gotten wind of some mysterious turncoat leaking police secrets from inside the department.

Which in most cases would be no big thing- Holt runs a station as crisp and uniform as his monogrammed PJs, so flushing out this mole will take no time at all.

Except for two b...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Brother-in-Loss' - Murr Marries
In the second of two new Impractical Jokers episodes this week, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr complicate job interviews, somebody drops their pants, and Murr commits the cardinal sin in the Book of Vulcano by once again involving Sal's sister in the anarchy. Not bad for a season finale.

Challenge #1: Help Unwanted
The Jokers are going into job interviews with resumes created by each other and lines being fed to them; their ultimate goal is to get the job, no matter how idiotic the other three guys make them look. Murr makes a Y2K reference and claims he spent three weeks in a "job simulator" at Goo...

Sadie Calvano Talks 'Mom' Season 2, Family And Charity
CBS's Mom - a 2014 People's Choice Award Favorite New TV Comedy nominee - is back for its second season tonight, continuing the dysfunctional but well-meaning escapades of the Plunkett family. We recently caught up with Sadie Calvano, who plays Christy's (Anna Faris) daughter Violet, to ask her what laughs and lessons are coming in season two.

The new episodes don't pick up immediately after last season's surprisingly touching finale. "We ended last season with Violet giving away her baby," she explained. "In season two, you see Violet dealing with the ramifications of that decision. She's...

'Supernatural' 10.4 Recap: Family Affair

October 29th, 2014 11:09am EDT
Supernatural
Though “Supernatural” premiered nearly a month ago, Tuesday’s episode felt like the true beginning of the season. “Paper Moon” marked the return of the pristine Impala, the return of the monsters, the return of a familiar face from season 9 and most importantly, the return of the brothers.

Grab your sunglasses and let’s dive in, shall we?

The Case | The monster-of-the-week cases often work as emotional mirror, reflecting paralleling the Winchesters’ lives. This week’s case was about as subtle as a volcanic eruption. Last season in the voyeuristic “Bitten”—a found footage thematic epi...

Challenge #1: Deal With It
The guys are back at Foxwoods again, working as blackjack dealers (once they pry Joe off the slot machine). Mr. Gatto also bats leadoff in this challenge, talking about the joys of "warm fish salad" until the gag is beaten thoroughly to death and Sa...
