The second season finale of The Blacklist was being touted as a “game-changer.” In this case the hype was actually true. Spoilers ahead.
The current crop of pilots for Amazon original series is up and includes the pilot for a series based on Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle. It's been a while since I read the book so I watched this and judged it on its own merits as opposed to how closely it followed the book.
A&E cancelled the crime drama Longmire despite decent ratings earlier this year. But as it has done for other shows, Netflix has swooped down and given the show a little more life.
The security apparatus cranks up in the latest episode of Manhattan as someone in Winter's group is accused of being a Communist, phone calls are monitored, and someone tries to get laid. Spoilers ahead.
ABC has posted the first episode of the Karen Gillan/John Cho sitcom Selfie online. Given the premise ("A young woman self-obsessed with her online persona asks a marketing guru for a real-life makeover in this re-telling of the classic My Fair Lady.") I was prepared to hate it but I didn't.
I started watching Saving Grace on Netflix. I'm still not fully sold on the show (it depends on how the whole angel thing goes), but I definitely like these crimefighting gal pals better than Rizzoli and Isles.
Aviva Drescher has a fake leg. Let's just put that on the table right now. In fact, she seems to have multiple fake legs - some for high heels, some for flats, and at least one to toss around for shock effect.
The most recent episode of Major Crimes had all the elements needed for setting up a spinoff show. I haven't heard anything official but it's hard to think "Two Options" was not a backdoor pilot. Spoilers ahead.
This is probably old news to some of you but today was the first I heard about it. I had some issues with the show (like the entire second season) but I stuck with it. There was enough unfinished business at the end of the third season that I'm glad we'll get some sort of resolution.
Watching True Detective recently made me realize just how desensitized I've become to depictions of ritualistic murders on television. Spoilers for True Detective and Hannibal ahead. Possibly disturbing images if you're squeamish.
The current season of 24 introduced CIA agent Kate Morgan. In many ways she is acting like a younger version of Jack Bauer back when he was still in the Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU). Spoilers ahead.
Since my WGN feed is East Coast I watch Salem at 7 then flip over to ABC and watch Once Upon a Time at 8. Watching these two shows back to back really highlights the differences between them.
Agents of SHIELD is on a dramatic roll, now that they aren't actually agents of SHIELD. This episode gives us a true superpowered villain and reveals that Skye really is a Mary Sue!
