'MasterChef' recap: I'm the captain now

Season 5 | Episode 15 | “Top Six Compete” | Aired Sept 1, 2014

Tonight on MasterChef the top six must complete a grueling restaurant challenge in order to make it into the top five. Up until this point, everyone has cooked in a pressure test except Courtney. Will she be safe again in the balcony, or will her team end up in the bottom?

After seeing many great chefs go home over the last few weeks, it’s hard to guess who will be going home tonight. Will it be Christian, Jaimee, Cutter, Leslie, Elizabeth or Courtney? Based on the trailer, Leslie and Cutter have a hard time working together during the team challenge, does that mean one of them will go home tonight?

At this point, it all comes down to the food. Who can consistently cook the best food when he or she is under pressure? My money is on Elizabeth or Leslie. Read on to find out which team triumphs in the restaurant challenge and who goes home tonight.

'Almost Human' recap: A house is not a home when it's a killer

Season 1 | Episode 11 | “Disrupt” | Aired Feb 17, 2014

Dorian wakes from stasis to find Rudy digging around in his head.  “You’re manipulating my body and rooting around in my head!” Dorian says irritably at Rudy, who looks really embarrassed. According to Rudy, routine maintenance is supposed to take less time when Dorian’s unconscious, but still, privacy is privacy. Kennex decides to interject, saying if he woke up to a clean shave, he’d be happy. Dorian turns the tables on him. “So if I shave you while you’re unconscious, that would make you happy?” Kennex changes the subject, saying that they’re already late for Paul’s shift.Read More

'Falling Skies' finale recap, part 2: Moon or bust

Season 4 | Episode 12 | “Shoot the Moon” | Aired Aug 31, 2014

The 2nd Mass gears up for trouble. Through the Volm scope, Hal watches the blinking green light on the moon. Anne loads up her really, really big gun. Matt practices throwing knives. Tom reads from Epictetus. As you do when you’re flying to the moon with your alien hybrid daughter to blow up an alien power core that imprisons the Earth. Nothing like a little in-flight reading of a dead Greek philosopher to lighten the mood.

On the moon base, the Espheni mine moon rock.

Back on Earth, a panicking Dingaan finds a man crushed under boulders with a large slug attached to his chest. The slug drains the man. Dingaan sees a whole valley of people being taken over by the slugs.Read More

‘The Strain’ hits its stride with 'Creatures of the Night'

Season 1 | Episode 8 | “Creatures of the Night” | Aired Aug 31, 2014

Goodness gracious. Great balls of fire! That’s what we’re talking about, people! That episode was the best one so far, hands down. The Strain hits its stride in episode 8, “Creature of the Night,” when it brings Vasiliy and the blonde computer hacker (Dutch) onto Team Ephraham (Abraham and Eph). The suspense was through the roof—with vampires and gore galore. We also got our first major death of the season, and it was a shocker indeed. Injuring Thomas last episode sent a very clear message to the Master, and in this episode, the Master replies—with a swarm of relentless vampires. Here’s everything you need to know about what went down on that brilliant episode of The Strain.Read More

'Ray Donovan' suffers from a hangover, [SPOILER] dies

Season 2 | Episode 8 | “Sunny” | Aired Aug 31, 2014

It’s a sunny day in L.A.—the sky is clear, the birds are chirping, and Ray has alienated himself from almost everyone in his family. That includes Abbie, once again on a motel rendezvous with Jim the cop. This time, Ray is on the case, as Avi reluctantly takes surveillance shots of Abbie and Jim.

Ezra’s law firm partner (Ezra is a lawyer?), Lee Drexler (Peter Jacobson) returns to L.A., back from a Hawaiian honeymoon. Such a taxing trip to Lanai obviously requires him to recuperate in his giant infinity pool. His post-vacation relaxation is cut short, however, with an impromptu visit/home invasion courtesy of Cookie Brown and ubiquitous henchmen.

Swooping into the rescue, Ray diffuses the situation with his signature death stare and grumble. Cookie asserts he gave $30,000 to Recon as startup money for his label before serving his prison sentence. Now out of the slammer, he demands compensation in the form of Marvin. Read More

Lexi has returned from the Dark Side. Tom is less than welcoming. Pope wants to kill her. Tom and Anne confront their daughter who is all “sorry for crashing the car, Mom and Dad.

'BoJack Horseman' recap: Prickly Muffin grows up, returns home

Season 1 | Episode 3 | “Prickly Muffin” | Aired Aug 22, 2014

BoJack has a knack for getting himself into trouble. Last time, we watched a media frenzy explode due to our favorite TV horse’s snide comments. In episode three, BoJack’s latest drama isn’t just from a surprise visitor. It comes from his personal demons.

The episode opens with a scene from Horsin’ Around in which BoJack makes breakfast for his TV kids as Sabrina hides under the kitchen table. After a few adorable quips and catch phrases, the director yells, “Cut!” A boom mic is in the shot and we’re now in the midst of the show’s taping. After placating the studio audience, BoJack kneels down and gives Sabrina some brutal advice. No matter how she feels or whom she hurts, she has to serve the audience. The world will disappoint you but so long as you’re good to your fans, you’ll have everything you need. Sabrina is horrified as the taping restarts and BoJack calls her by her show nickname, Prickly Muffin.Read More


'General Hospital' recap: Death by chocolate and Peter who?

Season 51 | Episodes 102-106 | Aired Aug 25-29, 2014

For many people, 1984 is the year that we learned not to get Gremlins wet, watched Mary Lou Retton score perfect tens in the Summer Olympics and Van Halen told the world to “Jump!” But in the town of Port Charles, it was when Frisco Jones and Felicia Cummings first met and eventually fell in love. Viewers today embrace Felicia with her current spouse, Mac Scorpio, but a lot of events led us to where we are today.

Felicia’s beloved Aztec jewelry has a long history of being sought-after and stolen. One of the people who was after them, way back in 1984, was Felicia’s ex-fiancé Peter Harrell. Luckily for viewers that are scratching their heads and saying “Who?,” there is a Wiki page that has a handy-dandy refresher for us.Read More

'Intruders' recap: Sleepless in Seattle

Season 1 | Episode 2 | “And Here You Must Listen” | Aired Aug 30, 2014

Welcome back to Intruders, where if you think you know what’s going on, you’re probably not paying attention (or you read the book). Our sophomore outing is titled “And Here You Must Listen,” as if we didn’t have to listen last week. I listened anyway; I promise. I still have questions. I wouldn’t want it any other way.

Finley Beach, Oregon

Allison O’Donnell (Sonya Salomaa) can’t find her daughter Madison anywhere. She’s called the cops, along with her husband Simon. A fight with Simon sent Allison to this beach house in the first place, but that doesn’t seem so important now. They embrace, and he wonders if Madison “went looking to find what happened to her parents.” She’s probably old enough to know that a fight is not a geographical location, but sure. Cope how you will. It feels like Simon is trying to guilt his wife into forgiving him, but if he is, that street goes both ways. Allison has been having an affair.Read More


'The Almighty Johnsons' recap: The Frigg?

Season 1 | Episode 8 | “I Can Give You Frigg” | Aired Aug 29, 2014

The boys are out to play! Since Axl isn’t into random sex and Anders is no longer allowed to have sex, the PR god hatches a plan to have the Frigg come to them. Sending out a fake press release about treasure, Norwegian blondes are flocking to the Johnson quest headquarters email!

Anders has another trick up his sleeve, turning goddess Michele against the goddess squad. Anders convinces Michele that she is just a piece in Agnetha’s game and once they have the Frigg, Michele will be left out to dry. But if she helps the Johnsons, then she will get her full god powers back.Read More
