'Transporter: The Series': Frank Spotnitz Explains The Changes O
If you watched last week's season two premiere of Transporter: The Series, you probably had a lot of questions. Thankfully, we have answers.

Frank Spotnitz is the man who's now driving (pun intended) Transporter, and he also has a track record as one of the best creative minds in television. He's responsible for some of the most memorable episodes of The X-Files, and also helped lay the groundwork of a little show called Strike Back. On Monday, Frank took the time to walk us through the journey of Transporter from season one to season two, and explain some of the show's big changes.


'Constantine': 5 Best Moments from 'Blessed are the Damned'

'Constantine' Review: 5 Best Moments from 'Blessed are the Damne
It seems every supernatural-themed television series does the faith healer episode, in which a devoutly religious nobody preacher becomes a sensation over night when a mysterious power allows them to heal people. But the healing powers are connected to some dark force. The skeptical hero and the much-more-open-to-religion sidekick investigate and discover the menacing power behind the healer, discuss their views on religion, and resolve the situation a little less skeptical than when they began.

If this sounds like nothing but complaining, it’s not. As typical as this type of episode is to...

'Peter Pan Live' Review: Christopher Walken Can Save Anything

'Peter Pan Live!' Review: Christopher Walken Can Save Anything
Admit it. We all went into "Peter Pan Live!" expecting a disasterpiece of the highest order. Something like last year's "The Sound of Music Live!;" something so bafflingly silly and unprofessional that it transcends the word "terrible" and becomes something weirdly watchable.

It's why legions were poised on Twitter, hashtags ready, and why hatewatching became a real word that people used.

But there's nothing to hate in "Peter Pan Live!" In fact, there's quite a bit that stirs up the opposite emotion. This TV musical about kids that never wanna grow up had an extremely appropriate youthful...

'Arrow': 10 Flashtastic Moments From 'The Brave And The Bold'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Flashtastic Moments From 'The Brave And The Bo
Oh, if only every week could be "Flash vs. Arrow" crossover week (although given the CW's potential plans to integrate "Supergirl" into the Arrowverse, we're looking at a very real future where there is an "Arrow"-brand series on every night of the week).

But that's a long way away, and also probably not real. For now, we've got "The Brave and the Bold," where Barry, Cisco and Caitlin (no Dr. Wells, sadly- too evil) head to Starling City to assist Team Arrow with a criminal of their own.

And, like "The Flash's" time in the crossover sun, it's a CW superhero fan's beautiful dream. Let's be...

'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.': Alien Death Tombs Under Puerto Rico

December 3rd, 2014 10:46am EST
'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Alien Death Tombs Under Puerto R
The mid-season finale of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is nearly upon us, and with it comes (presumably- the ads have been pimping it pretty hard) the revelation of what happens when person is divined by the Diviner. Messy things, no doubt.

That's gonna be huge. But we're not there yet- instead, we've got to get through "...Ye Who Enter Here," the penultimate "Agents" hour of 2014.

Sometimes, it does feel like "...Ye Who Enter Here" is something to get through (instead of something to be enjoyed, breathlessly, while munching fistfuls of popcorn), but for the most part it's a blast- crammed wit...

'The Flash' And 'Arrow' Swap Punches, Superhero Wisdom

'Flash vs. Arrow' Recap: The Flash And Arrow Swap Punches, Super
In theory, "Arrow" and "The Flash" should be the perfect pairing. One's relentlessly dark and grim, the other's a cheery comic book come to life. Also, the CW's been hyping this thing like no tomorrow. Does "Flash vs. Arrow" live up to the hype?

Good heavens, yes.

As per usual with "The Flash," there's a metahuman loose in Central City. This time, it's Roy G. Bivolo. Oliver Queen might not be a fan of giving menacing villains kooky names, but in this case, it's kind of necessary. Because Roy G. Bivolo. So instead, let's call him Chroma.

Chroma's running amok, using his glowing red eyes t...

Meet The Actress Behind 'Supernatural's' Rowena

Ruth Connell: Meet The Actress Behind 'Supernatural's' Rowena
The holiday season is all about family, and that includes on Supernatural. Viewers were recently introduced to the devious witch Rowena, who - in addition to causing trouble for the Winchester brothers - was revealed to be the mother of one of fans' favorite characters. Naturally, this requires some discussion!

Last week, we sat down with the lovely Ruth Connell, who is unsurprisingly nothing like her diabolical alter-ego, to talk about Rowena's revelation and what it's been like for her to land a pivotal role on a series as wildly popular as Supernatural.

SPOILER ALERT - If you're not ca...

'Sleepy Hollow': 8 Awesome Moments From 'The Akeda'

December 2nd, 2014 9:01am EST
'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: 8 Awesome Moments From The Midseason Fina
Up until the final few moments, “The Akeda” shows more promise than the all of season 2’s preceding episodes combined. The humorous moments didn’t seem overplayed and formulaic. The main characters were effectively used, all playing a part in the battle. Even Hawley got minimal screen time while still being useful. The emotional bond created between these characters was more evident than it has ever been before on Sleepy Hollow. It was as if the writers figured out everything that was lacking from the earlier episodes and rectified it in a single episode.

The episode’s final moment possibl...

'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale: 10 Badass Moments

'The Walking Dead' Midseason Finale Recap: 10 Badass Moments Fro
As far as credible threats go, the Hospital Officers were probably the least effective villains The Walking Dead has ever had. For a big part of the season, they were really only a threat to Beth, who, at the time, was one of the least developed characters on the show, barely earning the credit of being a main character. While the season took great pains to build up Beth, it couldn’t make Dawn and her rapist officers memorable antagonists. Gareth and his band of cannibals were far more frightening, even if they only lasted three episodes total. If there’s one major fault in the first half o...

'Transporter: The Series' Recap: '2B Or Not 2B' - Frank Martin's Second Act

November 30th, 2014 7:01am EST
Transporter: The Series
Frank Martin is back - actually, thanks to American broadcasting schedules he never left - but it's a brave new world for Transporter: The Series. With one heck of a first-season finale plus a changed creative team behind the scenes, things look very different in Frank's universe.

We open in North Africa some two years earlier, where Frank is calmly (is he ever anything less than calm?) rescuing French intelligence agent Caterina Boldieu (new series regular Violante Placido) from captivity, having not yet learned to mistrust French intelligence. A car chase ensues, followed by Frank dispen...
