‘Rising Star’ recap: Duels end as they began, with a whimper

Season 1 | Episode 6 | “The Duels, Pt. 3″ | Aired July 27, 2014

Last week on Rising Star: Kesha revealed some sassy blue hair, and we witnessed the beginning of her epic love story with a big ball of yarn. Josh finally became confident enough to stop begging for sock approval. (Go Josh!) People sang. People cried. Some did both. Now let’s see what unfolds this week on Rising Star.

This week’s opening segment involves a ticking clock, extreme close-ups of contestant’s faces and a return of our old friend—the bare lightbulb, bringing the same level of sexiness it always does. This time around, the lightbulbs are swinging like pendulums while competitors either pantomime singing or stare at the camera all creepy-like, with this text wrapping around them: “The time for preparation is over. Tonight’s duels decide whose dreams come true and whose will be shattered.”

'Derek' recap: Hannah's big announcement

Season 2 | Episode 3 | May 7, 2014 (UK Channel 4)

After two episodes of grandma’s conception advice and the occasional sexual encounter in a beaten down trailer, Hannah finally has some good news. The test came back positive! Unfortunately she never gets a chance to share the news with Tom as Derek discovers the truth Colombo style. Finding her “wee stick,” Derek rushes into the day room with the used pregnancy test, thrilled beyond belief. Despite having the moment spoiled by Derek’s enthusiasm, we’re all ecstatic for the new parents-to-be!

While everybody gets a good close look at the used strip, Geoff breaks the mood by asking Hannah if she’s going to keep the baby. As the room glares at him, Geoff explains he’s only asking because of the stories he’s heard about abortion. After Vicki gives him a quick telling off, he acts like there was nothing for anybody to be annoyed about. Kev may be a sexual deviant, but Geoff is an ass, perfectly happy to make everybody upset for his own amusement.Read More

'The Strain' recap: Bare is the new black

Season 1 | Episode 3 | “Gone Smooth” | Aired July 27, 2014

Well, that escalated quickly. In this episode of FX’s hit new show, The Strain, we saw part of the Master’s plan unravel as the “surviving” passengers start to take shape into their new forms. We aren’t holding anything back when we say that, either. Let’s just say, there’s a very literal reason why this episode is titled, “Gone Smooth.” We’re going to get right to it and break down the best moments from tonight.Read More

'The Musketeers' recap: Mother doesn't always know best

Season 1 | Episode 6 | “The Exiles” | Aired July 27, 2014

We’re now halfway done with the first season of this series. Back stories on the Musketeers are done, and it’s now time to focus on what their job actually consists of: protecting king and country.

This episode starts off magnificently with Aramis and D’Artagnan on horses. Seriously, I could watch a show with just them riding on horseback and be pleasantly happy. They’ve been sent on a mission by the Cardinal to go find a baby and bring him back. They have no idea why they are doing this because, as Aramis advises: “Don’t get involved.”Read More


'LeAnn & Eddie' recap: Louboutins for cowboy boots

Season 1 | Episode 2 | “Sooo LA” | Aired July 24, 2014

This week on LeAnn & Eddie, there are two major plot points: LeAnn’s girls’ weekend and Eddie’s offer from the show Dallas. Surprisingly, the more interesting of the two is the drama surrounding Eddie’s decision-making process. This is only the second episode, and I haven’t decided how I feel about LeAnn yet. But Lord knows, I am smitten with Eddie and find his screen time much more enthralling.Read More


'General Hospital' recap: Defining unforgiveable

Season 51 | Episodes 77-81 | Aired July 21-25, 2014

All this week, relationships ended in Port Charles, but not all was as it seems. Sam ends things with Silas for real. Julian ends things with Alexis for show. Olivia tries to end her rental agreement with Sonny. And Ava ends her situation with Sonny by way of helicopter.

It says a lot about Sonny’s current situation that the only person on his side these days is Carly. Being that Carly has never been known for her rationale; Sonny may want to rethink his course of action. His current logic is that he can repair his estranged relationship with Morgan by explaining that he is keeping Ava at his home to kill her after the baby is born. That certainly should warrant him a Father’s Day card next year, right?Read More


'Rectify' recap: See you around the fringes

Season 2| Episode 6| “Mazel Tov”| Aired July 24, 2014

SDC027_REC_PR_10_shot_10-2014This week’s Rectify spends more time exploring the lives of the people in Daniel’s orbit, and it is one act of kindness after another as they rescue and protect each other. While we are used to seeing the characters suffer as they fall apart, this week works toward a cohesion that we haven’t seen previously.

The episode picks up, presumably, the morning after a three-day bender in which Daniel has been partaking in all sorts of debauchery with Lezley. Read More
