The Suitless, Savvy Women of 'Suits' & Their Unrealistic Fashion
“Do I have anything to worry about?” I asked my husband, Neil, who is a partner at a Manhattan law firm. We were watching ‘Suits’ and Pearson Specter’s Managing Partner “Jessica” (Gina Torres) had just shimmied into a colleague’s office early in the morning wearing a tight, knit, off the shoulder dress that some of us would probably only don for a late dinner. Not only was it slinky, it was white. Aside from my wedding day – and the occasional T-shirt, I don’t wear that color. There would be ink and/or coffee running down the front of it by lunchtime.

“Do attorneys at your firm dress like ...

'Exant' Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: Wish You Were Here

'Exant' Season 1 Episode 3 Recap: Wish You Were Here
It’s a moot point but Molly was probably safer on the Seraphim than back home. Think about it, at least she had only one ghost/alien/boyfriend haunting her, now a whole SWAT team is gunning for her like she’s wearing a target on her back. In “Extant’s” third episode “Wish You Were Here,” we get a few more pieces of this cryptic puzzle.

The episode launches with the deputy director tracing Doc Sam’s built-in GPS tracker to the vet hospital where she performed Molly’s ultrasound. After scrolling past some scans of pre-mature pups, he spots Molly’s very human 14-week old fetus. He brings the ...

'Graceland's' Jamie Gray Hyder: Rest Of Season 2 Is 'A Whirlwind'

'Graceland's' Jamie Gray Hyder: Rest Of Season 2 Is 'A Whirlwind
Jamie Gray Hyder is keeping things interesting on Graceland. The True Blood actress plays Lucia Solano, the sister of Carlito Solano (Erik Valdez) and daughter of the head of the Solano drug cartel, who doesn't know that Johnny (Manny Montana) is actually an undercover agent. We caught up with Jamie last Wednesday to talk about her Graceland experience and how it stacks up against playing a werewolf.

"What I love about this part - and something that's super important to me - is to make her a real person and not a caricature of herself," she told us. "[Lucia]'s got such a cool, complicated ...

Marin Ireland: Meet 'The Divide's' Dynamic Leading Lady

Marin Ireland: Meet 'The Divide's' Dynamic Leading Lady
Last week, The Divide arrived on our screens with a thought-provoking. emotionally wrenching story that all started with Christine Rosa. To get further into the story, we sat down with the woman who brings Christine so beautifully to life: Marin Ireland. Here's what the Tony Award-nominated actress had to say about co-leading this complex and challenging series.

Even though she's one of the show's two main protagonists, Christine is far from likeable; in fact, on multiple occasions, she's been downright infuriating. Was her character's thorniness ever a concern for Marin? "It never is," sh...

'Under the Dome' Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: A Poison Pig And The
Have you prayed to the dome this week? We can only hope so, because for the first time all season, "Under the Dome" boasts a threat that's actually threatening. No more butterflies or magnets or blood rain that causes mild skin irritation; "Revelation" brings Chester's Mill to the brink of societal collapse with swine flu terrorism.

The townspeople seem to have recovered from last week's Biblical-ish acid rain (Big Jim's face is less splotchy, at least, even if Lyle's isn't, at all). Little do they know, an actual danger is on its way in the form of Rebecca Pine and her census-turned-killi...

'The Fosters' Season 2 Episode 6 Recap:'Mother'-Frankie Foster

'The Fosters' Season 2 Episode 6 Recap:'Mother'-Frankie Foster
The Fosters' "Mother" episode punched viewers with a big emotional hit. We said goodbye to another beloved member of the Fosters family. The hour also addressed some other impactful subjects, like Callie's rape, Jude's Selective Mutism, and Mike's addiction. This episode of The Fosters did offer some light-hearted storylines to balance the sadness, like Mariana and Jesus trying to sell the infamous bed, bought by Stef's mother, Sharon.

Bedtime

The Adams-Fosters hoped that Lena's pregnancy would go smoothly, but some complications put her temporarily on bed rest. Meanwhile, the moms agreed...

'Ray Donovan' Season 2, Episode 2 Recap: Ray Vs. The Bob Seger C
Last week on "Ray Donovan," we learned everything there is to know about what already happened on last season of "Ray Donovan." This week, we're in for a treat- a fairly substantial nudge into this brave new world called Season Two.

And like last week foretold, Season Two is heading in more or less the same direction as Season One. But at least now we know what the differentiating factors are going to be.

There's still going to be a family-sized portion of Ray/Mickey daddy drama, but now the drama has a new twist! Parole! Which has already given us a new location in Mickey's brand new th...

'Halt And Catch Fire' Recap 'The 214s'

'Halt And Catch Fire' Recap 'The 214s'
John Bosworth is the MVP of the Cardiff Electric team. It just took his downfall for people to realize it. The core team of three, Joe, Gordon, and Cameron, have spent so much time engaging in power plays over who is the most important to the PC project. Joe is all about being the vision. Gordon has been desperate to make up for his failings with the Symphonic that he has worked himself to the bone creating The Giant. Cameron is the raw talent in coding. It’s easy to overlook just how important a sane-minded business person is to this project.

John started off as one of Joe’s biggest naysa...

'The Strain' Episode 2 Recap: Nazi Secrets Revealed! (Hint: They Were Vampires)

July 21st, 2014 8:45am EDT
The Strain
We already know how "The Strain" fares with two hours' running time and a Guillermo del Toro manning the cameras. But how does it fair with just one hour and a distinct lack of del Toro?

The answer? Still pretty outstanding.

Because of the time crunch, we don't get nearly the same amount of "getting to know you" time that we did last week. Plus, we've got a new character to introduce- Vasiliy Fet, rodent hunter extraordinaire- meaning "The Box" has an even larger piece of bread on which to spread its perilously thin amount of butter.

But all in all, things work out. And if we've learned...
