'Arrow': 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'
Oh, mid-season finale cliffhangers. How cruel you are.

But few are as cruel as "Arrow"- because we can't even call "The Climb's" ending a "cliffhanger." That implies Oliver still had the hand strength to hang off a cliff edge, and at the end of this hour he was way too stabbed-to-death to handle that.

Really, this is more of a cliff-flopper. Cliff-dier, maybe.

But it was a pretty intense way to end a year of "Arrow," so let's not overthink the semantics. Instead, let's get down to the last "Arrow" countdown of 2014.

'The Middle' Recap: What's The Point Of Christmas?

December 11th, 2014 9:28am EST
The Middle
The main thrust of “The Christmas Wall” snapped into place at the very end, with Frankie making peace over how every time you think you’re out of frickin’ Christmas, it sucks you back in. Frankie tried to retire from traditional holiday celebrations the same way hitmen try to get out of the profession. She thought she had already a career’s worth of baking, decorating, and wrapping presents, but she had made too many allies, and they needed her for one last job. But it is never one last job. Once you’re back in the game of Christmas, there’s no getting out – not like you were ever real...

‘Law & Order SVU’ Midseason Finale

December 11th, 2014 9:08am EST
Law & Order SVU
Welcome back, SVU-viewers. Is it just me or did those two weeks on hiatus feel like two years? Now that we’ve seen every holiday-based SNL made, we’re back to NBC’s regularly scheduled "Law & Order SVU" show about sex crime scenarios, or what I’ve been nicknaming it lately “Ripped from the Headlines: Real Life Sex Crime Re-enactments,” but on a serious note the midseason finale covers a topic that should be in more headlines: backlogs of rape kits that go uninvestigated throughout the country.

Given the amount of sexual assaults happening, if you read daily papers, it’s definitely a releva...

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' 5 Best Moments From 'Tupperware Party Massacre'

Here at the top 5 moments from “Tupperware Party Massacre:”

These Insane Quotes

If American Horror Story has one reoccurring strength, it’s in the pure insanity of the dialogue. Every episode is guaranteed to have a few memorable quotes that out of context are baffling, while in-context are just as crazy. Here are this week’s quoteable highlights:

Jimmy to Ima, while spoon feeding her: “If you need it long and hard, I need you soft and wide.”

Dandy was on the top of his game with his crazy ramblings. “I am your God, Jimmy. And I’ve decided you need to suffer. I’m going to destroy you ...

'The Voice': And Your Wild Card Finalist Is...
The Voice revealed the identity of its new "wild card" finalist on Wednesday morning, setting the lineup for next Monday's finals and carrying four singers to the last round for the first time since season two.

For the first time ever, the nine artists eliminated from the Top 12 were allowed to perform again on Tuesday night, and then America went through one more round of voting to determine which of them should be brought back into the competition.

Who was your wild card winner?

The second chance went to Damien Lawson, the emotional singer for Team Adam, after his performance of Bruno ...

'The Mindy Project': A Christmas Holiday Story

December 10th, 2014 11:31am EST
the Mindy Project - Christmas
I love Christmas episodes and thankfully, so does The Mindy Project, which has nailed all of its Christmas episodes. Make no mistake: this is not a holiday episode, as the office boos about, but a Christmas episode which has so many punchlines and side characters (except a notable absent Tamara) that it’s just a blast to watch.

The episode sticks itself to another Danny and Mindy plot, but this time it doesn’t feel repetitive even if it’s the same material we’ve seen before: Mindy wants to be engaged my Christmas. She’s stalking and investigating Danny’s weird habits only to learn he boug...

'Supernatural' Winter Finale Review: Three Stooges

Supernatural
Dog strollers. Lip injections. Winter finales. What do these three things have in common? They are hideous inventions that make me worry about the future of our society. As a TV blogger, I encounter the last two more often than I care to admit. “Supernatural’s” winter finale entitled “The Things We Left Behind” was cluttered with the drama of secondary characters which left little room to focus on Sam and Dean’s predicament with that pesky Mark of Cain.

It is a cute parallel that Dean was giggling at old episodes of “The Three Stooges” bungling through tasks and hurting othres in the...

'The Affair' Recap & Review: 'Safe'

December 10th, 2014 10:24am EST
The Affair
Remember when I thought Noah was the most reliable narrator on the show? Midway through the season, I began to deeply question Alison’s recounting of her experiences that summer. Week after week her story was a depressing tale of a meek, generally innocent and troubled woman, who just got swept up by a suave and attractive but married man. Noah was her only source of contentment, the only means of escape from her tragic existence. She was a martyr, supporting herself and her husband after the death of her son, liked and nurtured by everyone around her. It was a little much, and it turned me...

'New Girl' Recap: Reverse Santa - 'LAXmas'

New Girl - LAXmas
“New Girl” might be developing an addiction to the bottle (episode). After spending two whole half-hours confined (almost) entirely to the loft this season, Jess, Cece, and the guys headed out, only to find themselves stuck in another location. Los Angeles International Airport was not quite the same seething cauldron of angst, as it was much more spacious than an apartment. Waiting out flight delays can be just as frustrating as being stuck at home, but there is more room in the former to prevent everyone’s anxieties and frustrations from bumping up against one another. However, that d...

'Girlfriends Guide To Divorce' Recap: Divorce Lawyer Up

December 10th, 2014 9:34am EST
'Girlfriends Guide To Divorce' Season 1 Episode 2 Recap: Divorce
The comment made by family expert/marriage guru and author, "Abby McCarthy" (Lisa Edelstein) about wishing her husband dead has gone viral and is fodder for every TV talk show. Her ex, "Jake" (Paul Adelstein), is still crashing on her couch because the stay-at-home dad has yet to find a place to live or look for work as a cameraman (he's a failed movie director.)

On top of it all, Abby's editor has abandoned her and the publisher has assigned her a new one who has cancelled her book tour, and tells her that they'll "regroup" when they see how sales of her series go.

Things seem to loo...
