'Supernatural Recap: The Heat Is On

December 3rd, 2014 12:07pm EST
Supernatural Season 10 Episode 8
One of my few complaints about "Supernatural" has always been its lack of diversity. When the main characters are all white guys, something has got to give. Tuesday's "Hibbing 911" offered a double-shot of the girlpower and poked a bit of a fun at the now classic buddy-cop movie, "The Heat."

Grab your favorite flavor of lollipop, and let's dive in, shall we?

Old Characters, New Fun | Fan-favorite Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) returns to once again audition for the next attempt at a "Supernatural" spin-off. She's quite literally towing baggage she can barely carry to the Minnesota-...

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

December 3rd, 2014 8:25am EST
'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...

'The Flash' Review: Flash No More?

November 26th, 2014 7:38am EST
The Flash
"Power Outage" could have lived and died as an entirely forgettable outing for the Scarlet Speedster. Oh look, another metahuman, bent on wreaking some kind of particle-accelerator-adjacent havoc? Big whoop. That happens every week.

But "Power Outage" will live on- because it's not just one standalone "Flash" episode. It's three episodes, gleefully mushed together into a tangle of crazy that was kind of incredible.

Barry, you see, has gotten cocky. He's using his powers in broad daylight, in front of crowds of people, stopping muggers willy-nilly and crossing boundaries man was not meant ...

Who Are TV's Sexiest Men?

November 21st, 2014 1:00pm EST
Matt Bomer
People magazine rightfully declared Aussie-born actor Chris Hemsworth as "The Sexiest Man Alive." The actor, who has impressive bulked up for roles in "Marvel's The Avengers" and Thor 2: The Dark World, has definitely earned the title. But this blogger, who loves all things television, couldn't help but wonder: who television's sexiest men alive? Here are my top 10 picks in no particular order.

White Collar's Matt Bomer
While "White Collar" may be shuffling off to that great TV vault in the sky, star Matt Bomer's career is just beginning its stratospheric rise, thanks in part to his...

'The Vampire Diaries': 5 OMG Moments From 'Fade Into You'

'The Vampire Diaries' Season 6: 5 OMG Moments From 'Fade Into Yo
They could write a book on Kai's complicated family history on The Vampire Diaries. We learned about Kai's ruthless quest for power. However, The Vampire Diaries' proved that all evil leads back to bad parenting. We also learned that the Gemini coven is basically the Originals family, but with witches. The Vampire Diaries season 6 episode 8, "Fade Into You," had so many OMG moments. Here are the biggest ones:

1. It's All Relative

In 1994, he killed four of his siblings. Three of them survived: Jo, Liv, and Luke. Kai killed the other four as punishment for his father's hatred of him being ...

'Arrow': 10 Heart-Wrenching Moments From 'Draw Back Your Bow'

November 20th, 2014 10:06am EST
Arrow
Do we have an overarching storyline for this season of "Arrow" yet? Season one was Robert Queen's little black book and the Dark Archer, while season two was Slade Wilson's revenge. Season three seems like it'll hinge on Sara's murder in the same way, except that story seems to have faltered recently.

Roy's innocent (well, innocent of Sara's murder, anyway), and the case has gone cold. We're closing in on the season's halfway point- things should hopefully pick up soon, and we'll see just what "Arrow" has planned for the long haul.

But for now, a villain-of-the-week story like "Draw Back...

'The Flash' Recap: Childhood Bullies Suck - 'The Flash Is Born'

November 19th, 2014 9:17am EST
The Flash
Let's all give a big round of applause to Tony Woodward, aka Girder (even if the CW's version doesn't go by that name; instead, "Girder" is a funky-looking training robot of Cisco's design), for being one of the most simple-minded supervillains anyone's seen in a long, long time.

In "The Flash is Born," Woodward's first act as a supervillain is to steal beer, a bright yellow Humvee, a couple ATMs, and go joyriding. His second and third acts, admittedly, are to beat the unholy hell out of Barry Allen (now that's a supervillain), but after that he's back to his old charms.

He kidnaps Iris- ...

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Kai's Sister Lives And Other Big Reveals

'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Kai's Sister Lives And Other Big Re
The Vampire Diaries season 6 continues to show promise. Bonnie grows even more into the witch we always hoped she'd become. Her nemesis Kai also gets more devious by the minute. And we love it. Sadly for Delena shippers, Damon and Elena went from awkward exes to complete strangers. The Vampire Diaries season 6 episode 7, "Do You Remember The First Time?" led to some big reveals. Here are the four biggest ones.

1. You Don't Mess with a Bennett Witch

Bonnie wakes and finds that Kai needs her help to fix the Ascendant. The Badass Bennett strikes again and kills him. She then reassembles the ...

'Arrow': 10 Boxing Glove Arrow-Worthy Moments From 'Guilty'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Boxing Glove Arrow-Worthy Moments From 'Guilty
You know what? Let's just get this out of the way first.

BOXING-GLOVE-ARROW-BOXING-GLOVE-ARROW-BOXING-GLOVE-ARROW!!

That felt good.

A lot of plot momentum on this week's "Arrow"- Laurel and Ted upgrade from boxing lessons to vigilante lessons, Roy gets a legit superhero name and we get an answer on that whole "did Roy kill Sara?" thing. But most of all, a man got punched by another man while they were across the room from each other.

"Guilty" might have erred a bit too far on the cheesy side, but it's impossible to complain when boxing glove arrows are involved.

So with that in mind...
