It’s the beginning of the end of the beginning. Time has marched forward in Mad Men, and the 60’s have finally arrived in full swing, just in time for the decade wrap up. Season 6 ended with several characters in precarious positions, and now that the series has reached the final fourteen episodes of its […]

Hannibal remains one of the most unique, brilliant, and under-appreciated network shows currently airing. Three episodes in, and the second season is proving to be just as addictive as the first. The show has done a good job continuing the format that made it successful the first season, while upping the stakes. Hannibal continues to […]

*Make sure to catch our Exclusive Interview with Vikings star Katheryn Winnick HERE Long at last, Vikings has returned for its second season, and it was most definitely worth the wait. (Major spoilers ahead). The show opened up almost right where the last season left off, with Ragnar having to deal with his brother Rollo’s […]

Girls’ third season premiered with two episodes on Sunday and everything is different, but also the same. Marnie is still defining herself by Charlie, Shoshanna is exploring herself in her senior year, Jessa is wreaking havoc in rehab. Things are good for Hannah, though. Hannah is happily with Adam and writing her book, but we […]

Downton Abbey’s season premiere had a lot of things going on, but the problem was, I only cared about half of them. The show has always had the challenge of balancing its large ensemble cast. That challenge was obvious in the season premiere, where there was the usual cast, a few new faces, and several […]

Of all the shows that walk the fine line of will-it-or-won’t-it get cancelled, Community is the one I’ll never understand. It’s about as smart a comedy as we get these days, and the lack of acclaim confuses me more than Nicolas Cage’s morality confuses Abed. It suffered from losing it’s vision along with creator Dan […]

It’s dark in the forest, as the thick trees obscure almost every trace of sunlight. The wind blows the leaves together, and the noise drowns out any sign of life. Suddenly, a new sound breaks through the forest canopy, something mechanical, and it’s getting closer. A twig snaps, and from nowhere a figure bolts through […]

On the 7th day, the CW created country boys. Not the old racist kind, but the country boys with sweet hearts, masculine stubble, and southern accents to make my heart swoon. I’ll admit, I first started watching Hart of Dixie after the end of the first season, not because I had heard from other people […]

The best part of premieres is that shows always bring their A game in order to start the season off right. After the lacklustre season the Vampire Diaries had in last year, they really did improve their status to bring us a wonderful action filled premiere. “I Know What You Did Last Summer” started off […]

Elementary’s sophomore season premiere featured a clever crime, characters from the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories, and a lot of stereotypical London landmarks. The episode started in New York, the show’s usual setting. But Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) got a call that his old colleague, Lestrade was in trouble, and was summoned to London to […]

There are times when I watch Grey’s Anatomy and wonder if the writers know how dramatic they are being. I would assume so, since they are writing a drama, but their premieres and finales are consistently bordering on soap opera status. The season ten premiere is no different. When they begin the episode, not only […]

And so begins the longest wedding weekend ever. When I heard the creators of HIMYM were planning on making Barney and Robin’s LEGEN-wait-for-it-even-though-Barney-says-he-

It all started with New Girl. Well, actually it started a year earlier when FOX decided to pair the massive hit/obnoxious trainwreck Glee with two new sitcoms, one of which was Raising Hope (technically it was 3 sitcoms in 2 timeslots, one coming in at midseason). Though both Running Wilde and Traffic Light burned out […]

Luther is back for four new episodes. Now in its third season, Luther takes a look into its titular character’s past to fuel much of its drama. (A few spoilers ahead). As ever, Luther raises uncomfortable questions about ethics in police work: how far is too far in the pursuit of justice? Idris Elba plays […]

Directed by Bryan Cranston, “Blood Money” began much like the first episode of the first half of season five, “Live Free or Die,” which showcased Walter White’s lonesome Denny’s birthday. Set approximately one year in the future, our loveable anti-hero—with hair—visits his abandoned former home to find a few local kids playing Lords of Dogtown in the […]

The second season of HBO’s loved and loathed Aaron Sorkin drama The Newsroom begins with a toned-down, piano-heavy version of last year’s rousing theme song. Instead of the reverent images of broadcast icons that accompanied last year’s intro, this year we have a slightly more abstract portrait of modern life in the trenches of Atlantis […]

“Beautiful Day” begins with Dexter playing father-of-the-year as he flies a kite with his son Harrison and coaches the boy’s soccer team. The Pixar-like montage is meant to display the last six months of Dexter’s life where he continues to blend in to his surroundings, despite the fact that his sister now knows his true […]

The words of man slowly descending into hell, juxtaposed with images of the beautiful beaches of Hawaii are how we welcomed back to the world of Mad Men. Don Draper is sitting on the beach with his beautiful wife, and has his face buried in Dante’s Inferno. Heavy reading for the sandy shores. It’s strange […]

Twenty hours into this epic, with enough corpses and orgies to make Achilles blush, we, as an audience, seem to still be closer to the beginning than the end. Seasons are moving along like a blind tortoise as characters are still separated by oceans and ego. While this may seem unappealing, it is in fact […]
