'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

May 18th, 2015 10:40am EDT
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...

Our Final Glimpse Into The World Of 'Mad Men'

May 18th, 2015 9:21am EDT
Mad Men Series Finale
Just when I thought we’d be saying, “Goodbye, Don Draper; hello Dick Whitman,” Matthew Weiner once again gives the ad man a reason to return after running away from home – except this time it was more satisfying.

Escaping from NYC/advertising/family life has had many false starts: Don went for a drive to nowhere, picked up hitchhikers who beat him up; took off when he was on a business trip in California without saying where he was going or when he'd return; and propositioned many mistresses to just pick up and "get out of here." But he always ended up begrudgingly back in Ossining and lyi...

Has 'Game Of Thrones' Obsession With Rape Gone Too Far?

May 18th, 2015 8:41am EDT
Game of Thrones
Just when you thought the Game of Thrones character hadn’t dealt with enough horror, the show manages to pull out yet another horrific, unexpected scene. “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” constantly built up the tension from beginning to end. It starts with a relatively sleepy set of Arya scenes, filling the middle with rising stakes for every storyline, and then ends with the overwrought Sansa scene. Most of it was very well done, save for the consistently disappointing Sand Snakes, even if the direction of Sansa’s storyline is a continuation with the show’s obsession with rape.

Here are the mo...

Queen Latifah 'Drained' By Bessie Smith HBO Biopic
Queen Latifah revealed that portraying blues legend Bessie Smith in the HBO biopic was "draining."

"I felt like it was the role of a lifetime," stated Latifah to Syracuse.com. The film was in development for more than 20 years and Latifah was always kept in mind for the title role.

"There was no Google when this movie came to me," she says during a recent conversation. "It wasn't like I could just pull it up on a computer and find out about her. So I bought the box set and started listening to her music. And initially I was terrified, because this music is so different, her voice is so di...

'SNL' Season 40 Finale – We Grade The Sketches

May 17th, 2015 9:25am EDT
SNL Season 40 Finale
In recent “SNL” history, the season finale has been reserved for familiar faces. Year 40 was no different, with Louis C.K. hosting for the third time in as many seasons and Rihanna making her fifth appearance as musical guest. Finales often have a celebratory air, with an overabundance of cameos, or an ode to the upcoming summer, or a farewell to departing talent, but there was not much of that this time. Instead, this was a fairly standard Season 40 episode, with a focus on original material that was best when it got weird. Unfortunately, it did not go weird often enough, and what resulted...

Did You Find The 'Scandal' Finale To Be Horrible?

May 15th, 2015 9:57am EDT
'Scandal' Review: The Infuriatingly Bad Finale 'You Can't Take C
Well, that was infuriating. Just terrible. Really, really bad.

“You Can’t Take Command” was the poorest showing Scandal has ever had. Plot lines were wrapped up in the worst way possible. Characters assassinated in the quest for “shocking” moments. Tension evaporated. A reunion that was not earned in any way, shape, or form.

What the heck is going on with Scandal?

Nothing was really shocking. Not in the true sense of the word. Shocking moments, which Scandal is obsessed with creating, is not just about having characters do insane things they would never do. Just because the audience woul...
