'Scandal' Review: 5 Best Moments From 'Where The Sun Don't Shine
ABC’s winter finales are usually bonkers and Scandal usually epitomizes that. For the most part, “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” was a calmer episode than we’re used to, but the ending really ramped things up. Here are the top 5 moments from the episode:

Killing B613

It’s almost as if Scandal heard our prayers. The B613 conspiracy is by far the weakest part of the show. It weighed down last season and its continual mentions this year have elicited quite a few groans. But in “Where the Sun Don’t Shine” the show is trying to rectify that problem by killing off the members of B613. Unfortunately...

'Scandal's' Jasika Nicole Talks Kim: 'She's Always At Level Ten'

'Scandal's' Jasika Nicole Talks Kim: 'She's Always At Level Ten'
She's the woman that Huck can't let go of, no matter how hard she tries to make him. The character of Kim has been breaking Huck's heart (and the audience's) since her first appearance on Scandal way back in season two, and for that we can thank actress Jasika Nicole, who brings her to life.

We had the opportunity to talk to Jasika last week about what it's like to play the emotionally wound up Kim (not easy), plus discuss how she was able to move forward from her best-known role as Astrid Farnsworth on Fringe.

"I did [my] first episode [of Scandal] and it was kind of like a dream," she e...

'The Middle' Recap: Thanksgiving For Losers

November 20th, 2014 10:40am EST
The Middle - Thanksgiving VI
This may have been the most depressing episode of the “The Middle” ever. That is no small feat for a show that has made no effort to hide the Heck family’s penny-pinching reality and daily stresses. Usually each episode will end on an at least relatively positive note to leaven that reality. “Thanksgiving VI” was not depressing because it forewent that positive ending. It was there, but it felt more momentary than ever before. The root causes of the doldrums were still taking their toll.

The good news is that despite how thorough all the Hecks’ problems are, they probably are not part...

'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.': A How-to Guide To Alien Superweapons

November 19th, 2014 11:27am EST
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Is it too early to say that "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is on a roll after finally telling us what that alien gobbledygook was?

Aw hell, let's say it: "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is on a roll. May it never end.

And from last week, we've upgraded from discovering one secret to discovering 800 billion. In no particular order, let's lay out what "The Things We Bury" taught us about S.H.I.E.L.D.'s current situation:

The Diviner is not a weapon.

The Diviner is a tool to end humanity (except for a select few), from long long ago.

The Diviner holds something even more powerful inside it.

The sec...

The reality dance series hosted "Plugged/Unplugged" night where the semifinalists performed two different dances to the same song.

DWTS
Alfonso Ribeiro's dancing days may be over. The former "Fresh Prince Of Bel Air" star may have to pull out of "Dancing With The Stars" because of an injury.

The actor originally injured himself while performing his infamous Carlton Dance several weeks ago. Then on Wednesday he hurt his back while trying to overcompensate for the groin injury.

Ribeiro's back hurts so bad, he isn't walking very well, sources told TMZ. He missed rehearsals on Thursday to get an MRI.

Ribeiro should know over the next two days whether he will be able to perform next week. The actor is one of the fan favorites...

'How To Get Away With Murder': #WhoKilledSam Is A Hollow Mystery

'How To Get Away With Murder' Recap: #WhoKilledSam Is A Hollow M
I saw something on Twitter (in the #WhoKIlledSam tag) last night that struck me as very odd. Someone said something like "#WhoKilledSam is the #WhoKilledLauraPalmer of this generation tbh." It couldn’t further from the truth.

First of all, Laura Palmer was a flawed sixteen year old girl. Sam Keating is a manipulative, lying middle aged white man who murdered a girl not too much older than Lila. Speaking of Lila, I’m unsure as to why tonight was the night we finally meet the dead girl, if that makes sense. Is it so we can see the reveal that she came to Annalise’s house the night she was mu...

Scandal Review: 5 Crucial Questions From 'The Last Supper'

Scandal Recap: 5 Crucial Questions From 'The Last Supper'
“The Last Supper” is the latest in a streak of good Scandal episodes. With the winter finale only one episode away, everything started shifting into gear. Olivia showed the boys why she’s the best in the business. Rowan showed them why he’s even better. Meanwhile Fitz and Jake just showed their asses. Overall, it was a satisfying episode, but it left us with a few questions.

Who Treats Olivia Worse: Fitz or Rowan?

The opening scenes of “The Last Supper” seemed like a race to see which of the men in Olivia’s life could treat her like an inanimate object in the grossest way possible. Fitz w...

'The Middle' Recap: Fruitball Never Ends Well

November 13th, 2014 11:18am EST
The Middle
One aspect of “The Middle” and most great sitcoms that rarely gets enough praise is how well plotted, how well designed they are. The Heck house is notable for its clutter. This gives the writers and set designers a lot of objects to make comedy out of. If a large bowl of cereal and milk is placed onto the dining room table, then chances are later in the episode an important document will be dropped into it. Similarly, if one Heck is stressing over P.E. class and another Heck is stressing over a missing wallet, then the first is going to enlist the help of the other with tinickling just...
