'The Bachelorette': When Will Kaitlyn Reveal Her Big Sex Secret?

June 30th, 2015 6:31am EDT
'The Bachelorette' Recap: Will Kaitlyn Tell The Other Guys She H
Where did we last leave The Bachelorette? Oh, right. Shawn was miffed about not getting a group date rose (despite Kaitlyn cooing that he was totally the one in San Antonio), and stormed up to our Bachelorette's hotel room to confront her about it.

The confrontation? Surprisingly non-confrontational. Kaitlyn and Shawn both tiptoe around their real feelings and let their ooey gooey hormones do the talking. A bunch of mush like "I like you more than anyone" and "I'm falling in love with you." Also, ample frenching.

Shawn: Mmm… *kiss* *grope* (translation: I'M UNCOMFORTABLE OTHER MEN)

'Big Brother' Recap: BB Finally Has A Decent Cast?

June 29th, 2015 9:49am EDT
Big Brother 17
Could it really be possible that we have a really good season of Big Brother after years of terrible casts and unexciting twists? BB17 is filled with likeable cast members, strategic players, and twists that so far haven’t stopped gameplay in its tracks. The episodes so far have been a great mix of entertaining interactions and serious gameplay. As with every Big Brother season, it’s too early to be this hopeful. But since BB15 and 16 were so terrible, it refreshing to have a season start off so well.

Here are the best and worst moments from the third episode:

Best: BB Fast Forward

Recap: Is 'True Detective' A Shadow Of Its Former Self?

June 29th, 2015 8:47am EDT
'True Detective': 5 Memorable Moments From 'Night Finds You'
Is True Detective a shadow of its former self? So many of the things that made the first season a success have fallen short so far in this season. Everything from the dialogue to the detective dynamics just doesn’t live up to what they once were. And since those were the elements that made True Detective more than just another murder mystery with a famous cast, the show isn’t quite the stand out it used to be. If season 2 had been the introductory season, it probably wouldn’t have the following it originally had.

However, there is still some potential. Ray Velcoro is one of those Rust Cohl...

Starz ‘Power’ Recap: Ghost Vs. Everybody

June 27th, 2015 10:00pm EDT
Starz Entertainment LLC
Let’s be honest. Ever since Angela danced her way into Truth last year Ghost’s grip on his empire—legit and otherwise—has loosened. Not only did his club get taken out from under him by his biggest competitor, his mark (RIP Pink Sneakers) got hit by someone else because he’d rather play footsies with Angela than step on the dark side.

Ghost’s efforts to regain control in "Power's" “You’re the Only Person I Can Trust” episode results in a tug-a-war between him and, well, everybody else. To make it plain. There are very few people Ghost can rely on given that his credibility is about as good...

'Rookie Blue' Season Six Premiere

'Rookie Blue' Recap And Review: 'Open Windows' - Not Back To Nor
Rookie Blue is back, and so is Andy McNally. The problem is, it's only been three weeks since the bombing at the end of season five - and new trouble germinates for Andy and Sam Swarek right off the bat, in the form of Sam's ex-girlfriend Marlo Cruz finally telling him what the audience already knows.

As if that's not bad enough, Andy gets an unpleasant surprise of her own when she agrees to head over to Traci Nash's apartment. Yep, these two just cannot catch a break in any way, shape or form. "Open Windows" might as well be re-titled "Open Wounds."

While Andy and Sam are wrapping up the...

'Hannibal' Kills Off One Character, Resurrects A Few More

'Hannibal' Recap: Three Mutilations And A Funeral
"Aperitivo": A pre-dinner drink (and sometimes a pre-dinner snack, too- something small like olives or a nibble of cheese) meant to open up your appetite and get you hungry for dinner.

Yes, it's hard to dwell on prosecco and munchies when Hannibal has just been cancelled by NBC, but no worries. Bryan Fuller and his team are already hard at work securing a new home for everyone's favorite consumer of human flesh. Besides, worrying won't get us anywhere- not when there's Hannibal to discuss!

So let's discuss.

"Aperitivo" is very much an aperitif for our season-long Italian meal. It's an en...

'Big Brother' Recap: Best And Worst Moments Of Premiere Night 2
And with that the game can finally begin. It’s always fun to see the houseguests first get into the house and try to find their bearings. There’s always a couple of people who come in swinging, ready to play hard as soon as they enter the front door. There’s always a couple of showmance-hungry women who declare that girls just totally hate them for, like, no reason at all! Some contestants try too hard for attention right away. And a BB season wouldn’t be complete without clueless contestants who have no idea what sort of show they signed up for.

However, Big Brother doesn’t truly start un...

'Suits' Season 5 Premiere Recap -- Spoilers Ahead

June 25th, 2015 9:27am EDT
'Suits' Recap And Review: 'Denial' - The Fall Of Harvey Specter
If you thought the fourth season finale of Suits was rough, the season five premiere just shoved you down the rabbit hole. "Denial" is a perfectly titled look at Harvey Specter's life A.D. (After Donna), how Donna functions in Louis Litt's world, and how this show mixes drama like a great martini.

As everyone's been buzzing about ever since, season four ended with Donna leaving Harvey to go work for Louis. Harvey did not take this well. Harvey's still not taking this well six weeks later, as he's having visions of Jessica and Donna taking him to task. He relates these to his therapist, Dr....

'Big Brother' Premiere: Who Is The Most Likable?

June 25th, 2015 9:08am EDT
Big Brother
In the first of a two night premiere, Big Brother 17 is off to a running start. It introduces most of the stalwart Big Brother tropes, from contestants who try too hard to force a showmance to a plethora of unwanted twists. But it also only introduces half the cast, the only welcome rollover from Big Brother 16. The first episode illustrates the brimming potential of the cast and the overall season, as well as some iffy moments that could have us begging for the Big Brother days-of-yore.

Here are the best and worst moments of the first episode, plus a bonus likeability meter for the new ho...
