'Arrow': Blake Neely Tells Us How He Makes Everything Sound Supe
The CW's Arrow returns tonight with Oliver Queen continuing to save Starling City, but his heroics wouldn't sound nearly as good if not for Blake Neely, the man tasked with composing the score you hear every week on the hit television series.

Following the release of his second Arrow soundtrack album, Blake sat down with us for a second time (here's the first) to discuss the evolution of his score and how he separates the music of Arrow and its sibling The Flash from his many other television projects.

"I try to evolve the sound a little bit each season, just because I think you can get d...

'Supernatural' Midseason Premiere Recap: Let The Power Be With You

January 21st, 2015 10:30am EST
Supernatural
After a lengthy hellatus (that had the silver lining of an early renewal for "Supernatural"), the sci-fi drama belly-flopped right back into the action. "The Hunter Games" was a mostly stellar episode that showed our heroes bungling through difficult situations, Sam and Dean both proving why they are the creatures demons fear, and a crapload of manipulation and trickery.

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

Claire and Castiel | Claire admittedly tapdanced on my nerves in the winter finale as it was the wrong time to introduce a new character. In "The Hunter Games," Kathry...

'The Flash' Recap: All Hail Heat Wave, The Greatest Crazy-Person Villain Of Our Time

January 21st, 2015 8:59am EST
'The Flash' Recap: All Hail Heat Wave, The Greatest Crazy-Person
"Revenge of the Rogues," as the title suggests, pits Barry Allen against his long-time comic nemeses, the Rogues- a group of semi-unionized supervillains content to steal stuff but not overturn the hero/villain balance of power in Central City.

But "Revenge's" Rogues aren't fully formed. They're still what you'd call a supervillain startup- two dudes, Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Mick Rory, aka Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), both intent on stealing priceless googaws and carving out a permanent position in Central City.

In last night's case, that means filching a ve...

'Justified' Season 6: What Does Jere Burns Say About Wynn Duffy's Longevity?

'Justified' Season 6: Jere Burns Talks Wynn Duffy's Longevity
Wynn Duffy keeps finding a way to not die. The charismatic lieutenant of the Dixie Mafia has been working his criminal ways for the entirety of Justified's tenure, whether it's on his own or by allying himself with the person most likely to keep him alive.

And that's actually a very good thing, because Duffy is played by the charming and talented TV veteran Jere Burns. Because he's such a joy to watch, you almost don't mind that Duffy never quite seems to get what he deserves.

We sat down with Jere on Sunday at FX's Television Critics Association presentation to discuss Duffy's surprising...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Boom' - Season 2's Biggest Bang

January 18th, 2015 9:15am EST
'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Boom' - Season 2's
If this week's Transporter: The Series teaches us anything, it's that Frank Martin needs to be a little more aware of what's going on with his packages. We know the rule is "never open the package," but "Boom" proves that you don't need to open it to know there's something that might get you blown up.

Despite the adverse situation, our hero makes the best of it in an outstanding story from new showrunner Frank Spotnitz that reminds us why we fell in love with Frank Martin in the first place, and proves that this show is still very much alive and worth fighting for.

Welcome to the Sahara D...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap And Review: 'Euphro' - The Tarco
So far in this season of Transporter: The Series, Frank's old friend Inspector Marcel Tarconi has only shown up when somebody else needs something. That changes with "Euphro," which makes Tarconi the client as he teams up with Frank to battle a drug smuggler and the inevitable police corruption.

Action opens in Belarus, where Tarconi is in a van full of troops on the way to arrest the aforementioned smuggler. Reichenberg, who's so low that he's selling counterfeit medicine to sick children.

‘Law & Order SVU’ Winter Premiere: ‘Forgiving Rollins’

January 8th, 2015 10:09am EST
Law & Order SVU
Happy New Year, SVUers!! We’re starting the year off on a somber note, with Rollins’ painful admission of being raped by her former boss, deputy chief Patton (Harry Hamlin) in the “Forgiving Rollins” winter premiere episode.

Kelli Giddish (Amanda Rollins) gives a phenomenal performance as a sexual assault survivor battling PTSD; the more Rollins tries to keep her dark encounter hidden the more emotionally unhinged she outwardly appears to be.

Triggering those skeletons is the “SVU” crew’s case of the week: an Atlanta-based detective, Reese (Dreama Walker of “The Good Wife” and “Don’t Trus...

'Sleepy Hollow' Review: 5 Questions Raised By 'Paradise Lost'

January 6th, 2015 8:54am EST
'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: 5 Questions Raised By 'Paradise Lost'
When we last left Sleepy Hollow, everything that had been built up for the last season and a half crumbled in a matter of minutes. Henry, the elderly son of Katrina and Ichabod, betrayed his demon master, Moloch, and ended the rising and impending Apocalypse. And all because Moloch didn’t love him enough. After months of building up a bloody battle that could decide the fate of the world, our heroes and their sidekicks were left tied up, helpless, and mere witnesses to the destruction of Moloch. Is it any wonder that Ichabod, Abbie, and the rest of the crew spent most of the return from hia...
