What Are Your 'Game Of Thrones' Hopes And Fears?

'Game Of Thrones' Wish List: Hopes And Worries For Season 5
As Game of Thrones Season 5 approaches, loyal fans may be feeling the familiar combination between excitement and dread. On one hand one of the most surprising, conniving, and entertaining TV shows is coming back. But on the other hand, there’s always a high likelihood that the characters we’ve grown to love will be demeaned, tortured, and murdered in front of our very eyes, just like every other season.

However, there’s something very different about this season. The showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have been more open than ever about diverging from the source material and surpa...

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Derek Is MIA

April 10th, 2015 9:10am EDT
'Grey’s Anatomy' Recap 'Crazy Love': Where In The World Is Derek
Shonda Rhimes swapped the ‘Thank God it’s Thursday’ tagline with ‘Throw Back Thursday’ by re-airing the very first Grey’s episode in primetime. Looking back on the pilot it’s wild to think Meredith and Derek got their roller coaster romance started with a one night stand. Fast forward 10 years later and they still keep the on call rooms steamy.

The “Crazy Love” episode starts with Mer and Der getting in some a.m. sex before he jets out to D.C. to hand in his resignation letter and government issued phone. Peace out, Obama. The Shepherds are at the height of their manic morning routine when...

'Justified': The Penultimate Episode Rundown

April 8th, 2015 10:02am EDT
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Collateral' - Just One Showdown L
After bodies started to hit the floor last week, everything continues spiraling out of control in this week's penultimate episode of Justified. One more recurring character buys the farm and another probably isn't far behind, while both Raylan and Boyd are invited to start questioning their motivations - but neither are interested in doing so. By the end of "Collateral," everyone's in trouble and you get the sense that this show is going to come down to who's the better survivor.

While Boyd gets a new ride at gunpoint, Tim and Art find Raylan's car and his badge, much to Art's massive anno...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Sees The Return Of?

April 8th, 2015 9:44am EDT
'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: Which Two Characters Make A Surp
Last week's "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." was a solid uptick after more than a few episodes that seemed to squander how awesome the Inhumans really are. This week's "Agents" outing, "Afterlife," is several hundred upticks, all in a row. Or maybe a giant rocket blasting upwards.

What we're trying to say is that "Afterlife" was crazy entertaining and overloaded with genuinely out-of-nowhere surprises. Two returning character reveals, oodles of Inhuman world-building and one great big leap forward in that whole S.H.I.E.L.D. vs Real S.H.I.E.L.D. thing.

Let's start with the Inhumans' secret mountai...

Are You Missing 'Empire' Yet? Here's Some Cookie Lyon Jabs To Fill The Void

April 5th, 2015 4:03pm EDT
10 Of Cookie Lyon's Most Bruising Verbal Jabs On 'Empire'
She’s one tough Cookie! No one can deliver a gut punch—physical or verbal—like Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson). Her verbal knockouts are as noteworthy as Floyd Mayweather’s fists. And no one is safe, especially Boo Boo Kitty. Below are 10 of Cookie’s most bruising verbal jabs.

Don’t Hush the Cookie Monster

Cookie’s grand entrance into the Empire boardroom nearly gets rebuffed by Lucious’ henchman Vernon.

Vernon: “Good to see you, Cookie…”

Cookie: “—Vernon, kiss my black ass.”

When shuttled into Lucious’ corner office, Cookie’s still not willing to back down:

Cookie: “You’re messing wit...

'Arrow' Had Some Unexpected Shocking Moments

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Shocking Moments From 'Public Enemy'
Well, that was unexpected. Seriously, that (can we say it? This is probably too high up on the page to say- we'll save the spoilers for a little lower) move that "Arrow" just pulled with "Public Enemy" is something most shows do in their final season. Maaaaybe the finale before the last season.

But "Arrow" pulled this move (the coast looks clear, so... telling the entire world Oliver Queen is the Arrow) midway through the third season. It's a gutsy move. And, perhaps with a lot of elbow grease and suspension of disbelief, something that can be undone, if Roy really commits to taking the fa...

Mark Hamill Is Impressive In 'The Flash'

'The Flash' Recap: Mark Hamill Is Absolutely Terrifying
"There's a twist with Harrison Wells and the Reverse-Flash storyline that no journalist has guessed -- I've never seen it online. It's going to I think really surprise everyone. And it's an original twist to the character that doesn't mess up the mythology."

That's what Grant Gustin teased earlier this month (to ComicBook.com), adding that the twist in question had also never been done in the comics.

Pretty sure we just saw what Gustin was talking about. And it is a gigantic game-changer for "The Flash."

We might not have been the hugest fans of Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne/The Reverse-F...

'Justified': Ava Is 'Fugitive Number One'

April 1st, 2015 9:05am EDT
'Justified' Recap And Review: 'Fugitive Number One' - Killing Th
Last week on Justified, Ava Crowder had her Network moment and did a terrible thing. This week's episode is all about the fallout of that decision, namely how she's just become "Fugitive Number One." Complete with headshot on the corkboard in the Marshals Office. She's really gotten herself into it this time, and everyone else has gotten themselves into it because they failed to handle her.

What nobody knows is that this episode actually has very little to do with Ava at all. The best (or worst, depending on your perspective) is yet to come.

Art un-retires himself to deal with these lates...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Does A Little Damage Control

April 1st, 2015 9:04am EDT
'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Recap: 'One Door Closes' Takes Us Back
"One Door Closes" is definitely "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" way of running a little damage control.

"Agents" has picked up a couple of bad habits in the last few episodes. Mostly, that our New S.H.I.E.L.D.ers (plus Simmons) kinda come off like jerks. So the show rushes in to reassure us- don't worry guys, Simmons legitimately wants to help Skye. Oh, and look! Badass "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"-era flashbacks for Mack and Bobbi!

You've won us over, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." "One Door Closes" might not be a perfect hour, but there's enough goodness within to keep us thoroughly ente...

Levi Meaden On SyFy's New Series

Levi Meaden
SyFy continues to add to its stable of original series with the mythological drama Olympus, which kicks off on Thursday and according to the network, will take audiences "inside the action-packed world of humans, gods and monsters."

One of the human characters in this saga is Kimon, played by Levi Meaden (who portrayed AJ Fielding in the fourth season of The Killing). We caught up with Levi last week to discuss what we should expect from Olympus and why we keep finding him in a lot of epic TV shows.

Who exactly is Kimon?

"He is a character that comes from a slave background, who has been...
