'Justified' Premiere Recap And Review: 'Fate's Right Hand' - In With A Bang

'Justified' Premiere Recap And Review: 'Fate's Right Hand' - In
So, here we are: the beginning of the end of Justified. There's sadness that comes with that, obviously, given that this has been one of television's consistently excellent shows from the day it went on the air a little less than five years ago. But there's also a sense of excitement, because "Fate's Right Hand" proves that this show is not screwing around, and is going to finish things off as strong as it's ever been.

Winona is still raising Raylan's daughter Willa, and wondering why he's not there considering that he was supposed to be headed their way. But the reason why is obvious: it'...

'The Flash' Recap: All Hail Heat Wave, The Greatest Crazy-Person Villain Of Our Time

January 21st, 2015 8:59am EST
'The Flash' Recap: All Hail Heat Wave, The Greatest Crazy-Person
"Revenge of the Rogues," as the title suggests, pits Barry Allen against his long-time comic nemeses, the Rogues- a group of semi-unionized supervillains content to steal stuff but not overturn the hero/villain balance of power in Central City.

But "Revenge's" Rogues aren't fully formed. They're still what you'd call a supervillain startup- two dudes, Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Mick Rory, aka Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), both intent on stealing priceless googaws and carving out a permanent position in Central City.

In last night's case, that means filching a ve...

'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills' Recap: Brandi Shoves Kyle Down The Steps

January 21st, 2015 8:50am EST
Kyle
I'll call your push and raise you one shove that sends you flying off your Louboutins.

No one brought her poker face to Eileen's Malibu home, where husband Vince -- a professional poker player -- hosted a game of Texas Hold 'Em. The evening went bust though, but even before that the ladies anted up the drama.

A few days before, Kyle rented a party SUV to take the housewives to Santa Barbara for a spa outing. Emmy-winning actress Eileen could only stay for a massage, as she needed to go to work on her soap opera. There was a mix up and instead of a lunch, the spa arranged a wine tasting....

'The Fosters' Recap: 'Over Under' Recap: Untrustworthy

January 20th, 2015 10:53am EST
'The Fosters' Season 2 Episode 12  Recap: 'Over Under' Recap: Un
The Fosters season 2 returned with some major changes. The biggest change was the possible end (for good) of Brandon and Callie. Trust played a major role in the dynamics between various characters. At the end many of the Adams-Fosters clan had to navigate what that concept meant for them, and those they love.

The Twins

Mariana and Tia intensely prepare for an upcoming dance competition. Kaitlyn's last minute routine changes makes things difficult for them. On competition day, she cuts Mariana's solo. Tia finally has enough: she quits the team.

Mariana surprises everyone by not quittin...

'Top Gear' (UK) Recap: 'Patagonia Special, Part 2' - Escape From Argentina

January 20th, 2015 9:26am EST
'Top Gear' (UK) Recap: 'Patagonia Special, Part 2' - Escape From
In part two of Top Gear's Patagonia Special (here's our recap of part one), Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are still trying to make their way to Tierra del Fuego in a trio of now significantly more mangled V8 sports cars.

But that's nothing compared to what's at the end of their journey: a very serious, potentially life-threatening situation that turns what should've been a typical Top Gear adventure into another startling moment that will go down on the unfortunate side of the show's history books.

With nine hundred miles left in their latest journey, their troubles are j...

'Mulaney' Recap: 'I May Be A Hot Dog, But I'm Still A Young Hot Dog'

January 19th, 2015 10:53am EST
Mulaney
Last week’s episode provided the latest, and strongest, evidence of how the veteran presence of Elliott Gould has been one of the most reliable elements of the otherwise unreliable “Mulaney.” It does not always work when supporting characters are given a more prominent role, but it was such a delight watching Oscar be delighted that more of him seemed impossible to disappoint. Besides, regular cast members of a TV show, no matter how tangential, need to be able to handle plots of their own. So what a disappointment that Oscar’s most prominent storyline to date was missing so much of that...

'Downton Abbey' Recap: Bed Hopping Is In Their Blood

mary
Apparently, Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) showed Tony Gillingham (Tom Cullen) more than "a glimpse of stocking."

Mary's living in sin with Tony (if only for a week in Liverpool) may be appalling for 1924, but it’s not new – at least not to Mary’s grandmother, Violet, Dowager Countess Of Grantham (Maggie Smith), who knows from scandalous love; nor to the Robert, Earl Of Grantham (Hugh Bonneville), who suspects wife Cora (Elizabeth McGovern) of cheating.

Mary and Tony are still on holiday, but it’s Mary’s last day. As their post-coital breakfast arrives, Tony must slip into his adjoining roo...

'Girls' Recap: Welcome To Iowa

'Girls' Season 4 Episode 2 Recap: Welcome To Iowa
Previously - Hannah prepared to move to Iowa for grad school and leave Adam behind. Marnie found being a musician is actual work. Shoshana had awful parents. Jemma was pissed at Hannah for leaving.

"Triggering" is the title of last night's episode and it caused me to tense up for a bit before viewing. I snarked last recap that Girls is actually a horror series, but Season Two's ending episodes WERE horrific. Hannah Horvath's obessive compulsive disorder, which had only been hinted at previously, reared it's exceptionally ugly head. Remember the Q-tip? And the haircut? The t-shirt without p...

'Shameless' Recap: 5 Best Moments From 'I'm The Liver'

'Shameless' Review: 5 Best Moments From 'I'm The Liver'
Happy Father’s Day, Shameless universe! “I'm The Liver” jam packs dozens of plots, big and small, into a single episode, including Ian’s continued descent, Lip’s new job, Veronica’s post-partum depression, Sammi’s desperation to get Frank to notice her, Frank’s brewery, and the budding gentrification of the South Side, among many others. Yet, it still manages to feel cohesive. Even with the many subplots, it never feels like the characters exist in a bubble. They cross paths, interact, and acknowledge each other’s storylines. It’s actually quite an impressive achievement to feature so much ...
