'Wayward Pines' - Our Town, Our Law

'Wayward Pines' Recap: Season 1 Episode 3 'Our Town, Our Law'
The last Wayward Pines' episode proved that things can get a whole lot worse than you think, and really quickly.

Beverly broke a major rule on last week's Wayward Pines, and we saw the severity of going against the town's rules. Now Ethan Burke must fight his way out of town or accept these rules. In last night's episode, Ethan continued his plan to leave Wayward Pines, but he discovered that the town may answer to an even more dangerous authority than Pope.

This episode of Wayward Pines opened up right after Beverly's execution. Sheriff Pope then makes everyone in town recite the rules...

You Do Not Want To Break 'Wayward Pines' Rules

'Wayward Pines' Recap: 'Do Not Discuss The Past'
Wayward Pines' series premiere had a bit of a mysterious and steady build up. We became all too confident that this would be one of those shows where you didn't really learn anything until close to the finale. We were wrong.

The second episode of Wayward Pines gave a full view of this town. We may not know all its secrets, yet, but they're starting too unfold in a rapid pace. Last night's episode not only gave us some major town rules, but it showed the punishment for those who break them. You definitely do not want to break Wayward Pines' rules.

As You Were:

Pope tells Ethan that he doe...

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Leaves Us With Lots Of Questions To Be Answered Next Fall

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Finale Recap: 'Johnny And Dora' Ends On Two
Last year's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" finale, "Charges and Specs," was a great episode. Not much of a finale, though.

Especially considered the two big cliffhangers the episode gave us- Jake abandoning the Nine-Nine to go undercover, and Gina and Boyle hooking up- weren't the game-changers they initially seemed.

Jake's time in the mob was one episode. Gina and Boyle's traumatizing sexcapades lasted five episodes.

"Johnny and Dora" seems like a very different finale beast. It, too, sends two plot threads dangling off the proverbial season-cliff. One involves two characters hooking up. The othe...

'Bob's Burgers' Fifth Season Is A Wrap

Bob's Burgers
With little fanfare, or more fanfare than expected, depending on how you look at it, “Bob’s Burgers” wrapped up its fifth season on May 17, 2015, making for another winning entry in the canon of classic animated sitcoms. It was a wacky year, with a wacky 7:30 timeslot resulting in conflicts with football for much of the fall. A cancellation of one show and the premiere of another had “Bob’s” bouncing to the 9:30 spot and then back to 7:30. So perhaps the odd scheduling choice of two new episodes two hours apart was the most appropriate decision to end this season. It certainly fit the ethos...

'American Idol' Crowns Its New Winner!

May 14th, 2015 8:22am EDT
Nick Wins Idol
Last night, American Idol finalists Clark Beckham and Nick Fradiani waited to find out who won the Idol season 14 crown. It's been a long journey for both men. Idol ensured that the series' fans got one heck of a show, while praising Clark and Nick's journeys.

American Idol gave us a stellar finale with great performances, great special guests, and a deserving winner. We really enjoyed this year of American Idol, and last night's big finale ensured that we're going to miss it after 2016. So let's not dwell and dig right into all the action.

Fall Out Boy, along with Nick and Clark, opene...

Nick Or Clark, Who Will Win Tonight?

'American Idol' Prediction: Who Will Be Crowned Season XIV Champ
Last night on American Idol, Nick Fradiani and Clark Beckham went head to head for the American Idol crown. The result was one of the most evenly matched Idol finales we've ever seen.

Earlier this week, American Idol announced its cancellation after next year. More than ever, the American Idol music team needs to crown a marketable winner. We haven't really seen many American Idols reach Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood levels of musical success, so Idol should not put too much pressure on Clark or Nick for post-Idol huge record sells.

However, Nick's "Beautiful Life" single has potent...

'American Idol' Finale Recap: Top 2 Revealed, 'Champion' Or 'Bea
Last night, American Idol narrowed down its final 3. Jax, Nick Fradiani, and Clark Beckham all hungered for the Idol title. Sadly, American Idol opened with the elimination of one of them. It was American Idol 2015's most shocking exit.

The final two contenders then had to work their hardest to get those crucial votes. The season seemed so skewed towards a Jax and Clark final two, with a Clark victory. But tonight's Idol results might just have changed the outcome of the season.

Eliminated:

Jax

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Penultimate Hints Of A Killer Season Finale Is To Come

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: 'The Chopper' Is Light On Action, He
How much cop show do you need in a cop show comedy?

Take "The Chopper," last night's episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Jake's chasing the Fulton Street Four, a gang offing each other to get access to their secret $21 million stash.

This case has everything Jake could ever ask for. Triple homicide. Million-dollar stash. Sick slow-motion helicopter dismounts.

Except... "The Chopper" didn't have any actual action. Or suspense. You know, action movie stuff. We're chasing the Fulton Street Four, but for most of "The Chopper," "chasing" consists of "Jake telling us when another Fulton Street...

'Bob's Burgers' Recap: 'Housetrap'

May 11th, 2015 11:04am EDT
Bob's Burgers
Getting stuck in a stranger’s house because of some extracurricular snooping is a fairly common, fairly creepy sitcom staple. Does this sort of thing happen in real life? Probably, but those real-life scenarios are likely much more dangerous than the television versions. On TV, there is often a hint of danger underscoring the whole scenario, but the situation is so ridiculous that laughs – nervous though they may be – tend to win out the day. This is all to say, this is an eye roll-worthy storytelling device. But “Housetrap” avoided that skepticism by going so far into typical “Bob’s Burger...
