The Voice - Season 7

Blake doesn’t know who Ellie Goulding is on Monday’s ‘The Voice’

Season 7 | Episode 9 | “The Battles, Part 3” | Aired Oct 20, 2014

Last week: We started battle rounds on NBC’s The Voice. It got a little violent when I threw a shoe at my TV in reaction to Maiya Sykes’s untimely exit and again when Gwen sweetly threatened to put two contestants in a blender (what is this, Saw?). Adviser Alicia Keys demonstrated a deft hand for re-arranging battle songs, and Pharrell comforted one of Adam’s losing contestants (winning him “Best Human” of the week). Now let’s talk about the latest episode of The Voice.

Just to make sure we’re all on the same page: Pharrell has used both of his steals, Gwen and Blake have used one, and Adam has yet to use a steal.

We open on Blake regaling Pharrell and Gwen with all the reasons why he loves to beat Adam, after which he casually saunters up to the Starbucks counter to ask for his special drink. Next time I’m at Starbucks, I’m going to order “Blake’s special latte” and just see what happens. I’ll keep you updated.Read More

'Are You the One?' Because I can adjust to who you are

Season 2 | Episode 3 | Aired Oct 20, 2014

Back from another disappointing match ceremony, Brandon warns the group that the chance Pratt/Paris and Curtis/Briana, the two closest and most consistent couples, are perfect matches is low. Curtis fires back, stating that with such opinions Brandon better not spend time with someone who isn’t his match, a.k.a. Christina. Of course, Brandon proceeds to spend most of the episode with Christina or whining about how he’s not with Christina. Alex, finally getting some screen time, consoles a frustrated Brandon, who genuinely feels he won’t make another strong connection with anyone else in the house. So far, the Alex-Brandon friendship is the best thing to come out of the Brandon-Christina debacle.

Meanwhile, Shelby sits with Nathan to ask how he feels after she and Dario kissed in front of everyone. Nathan manages to say, “I would move to Kansas just for you,” “I’m not gonna f—in’ smother you,” and “I can adjust to who you are” in the span of that one conversation. Shelby astutely suggests he should find the girl he doesn’t have to adjust himself to love, which he takes as an insult rather than the common sense advice that it is. He proceeds to boast about the hot, nay, hottest girls,  he’s managed to score since he was 13 as a result of his “adjusting.” Yeesh.

Boys will be boys on 'Star Wars Rebels'

Season 1 | Episode 4 | “Fighter Flight” | Aired Oct 20, 2014

One quick note: Actress Vanessa Marshall had a birthday on Sunday, so make sure you drop by and wish her a great one. Happy birthday, Vanessa. Much love to you and Hera both!

It’s a new week, and we’re back with our favorite Rebels aboard the Ghost, where life seems to have settled into a routine of sorts.

Ezra is practicing his Jedi skills, aka lifting bowls using the Force. Chopper is not impressed. I’m pretty sure “Bhwah-bah-beh-bwah” means “Great, we can have dinner to go!” but my astromech is rusty. Ezra’s also doing what he can to flirt with Sabine. That’s going over as well as the bowl lifting.Read More

Why 'Resurrection' star Landon Gimenez finds Margaret Langston scary

The name “Walker Stalker” brings to mind flesh-eating zombies from The Walking Dead—not adorable, resurrected 10-year-olds. But Atlanta played host to both at their annual convention this past weekend, and we caught up with Landon Gimenez (he would be the adorable, resurrected 10-year-old), who plays Jacob Langston on ABC’s Resurrection. In the show, Gimenez’s character first returns to the small town of Arcadia after drowning in the town river 30 years earlier.

His grandmother, Margaret Langston, spent most of her childhood killing those who had returned (meaning Jacob isn’t the first!), discovering how to destroy them for good. Even though Margaret calls the Returned “demons” and wants to destroy them, we asked Gimenez if he thought that Jacob could change her mind, especially since she loves her family more than anything. But Gimenez wasn’t so optimistic: “No, I don’t think so. Margaret is her own kind of lady, and she’ll stop at nothing. But I think her goal is to try to protect Jacob, Henry, and the rest of her family.” If her goal is to protect her family, it could mean she could spare the returned Langstons from being destroyed forever, or Margaret could think the only way to protect them is to destroy all of the Returned—herself and Jacob included.Read More

Scott Wilson ponders: What would Hershel do on 'The Walking Dead' season 5?

The last time we saw Scott Wilson Hershel Greene, he was dragging his body in a vain effort of survival until the Governor caught up and decapitated him. Only two episodes into season 5, Rick & Co. are still battling zombies, cannibals, and each other. Should they head to D.C. with Abraham, Eugene, and Rosita? And, what’s going on in Carol’s mind? It’s enough to make a Walking Dead fan long for the comforting Hershel Greene.

Today, we talked with Scott Wilson (head intact) at Atlanta’s Walker Stalker Convention. His role may have ended on AMC’s The Walking Dead, but don’t tell that to his fans at Walker Stalker. Hundreds traveled to see him, so we had to ask, “What would Hershel do?”

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' recap: The brides of Frankenstein

Season 2 | Episode 2 | “Some Assembly Required” | Aired Sept 22, 1997 on The WB

Ah, young love and new beginnings. Much of Sunnydale seems to be pairing up, including some of our favorite all-time Buffy the Vampire Slayer couples—and the undead as well.

Buffy is just hanging out in the cemetery, waiting for a new vampire to rise, when Angel silently sidles up and startles her, his trademark entrance. He not-so-subtly inquires about Xander, and Buffy picks up on a twinge of jealousy, which Angel denies. They start to argue, the vampire finally shows up, and Buffy swiftly fights him and finishes up with a shovel. Angel walks off in a huff and Buffy tries to follow, but stumbles into an open casket. There are tracks, meaning whoever was buried there didn’t rise; someone dragged her from it.Read More

'Madam Secretary' recap: The Great Juggler

Season 1 | Episode 5 | “Blame Canada” | Aired Oct 20, 2014

Was it just me, or did anyone else start singing the South Park movie’s “Blame Canada” melody when you read the name of this week’s Madam Secretary episode?

Last week’s episode of the new CBS series had new Secretary of State Elizabeth “Bess” McCord helping China and Japan broker a treaty over the ownership of islands. This week’s task is a bit more daunting: Bess must develop a peace treaty with Iran while simultaneously appeasing Canada’s need to settle a report over an oil pipeline. This woman makes juggling pertinent world issues look like a cakewalk! Okay, not true; she makes it look like a beyond-difficult task that takes all the skill, resolve, and intelligence in the world. Luckily, Bess has those traits in spades.Read More

First look: Andre Jr. and Pops talk spanking on 'black-ish'

Never think you’re too old for a spanking! Andre Jr. gets this misconception cleared up after Pops interrupts his spanking terror tale in this exclusive clip from Wednesday’s black-ish. Yes, this upcoming episode will be about the hot-button issue of spanking. Whether you are for physical discipline (like Pops, who spanked Andre even when he was a college student), or against it (like Zoey, who believes spanking doesn’t exist in today’s world anymore), there are still some laughs to be had thanks to Andre Jr. and Diane’s comedic reactions.Read More

'Mulaney' react: A grave robbery, a musical number, and a Jewish Shiva

Almost any TV fan would agree, a new show—and especially a new sitcom—needs time to grow. It’s hard to make an informed judgment based only on a 22-minute sample. Enter: The Three-Episode Rule. Used by many to test the waters on a new series, the rule grants a show a three-episode grace period to make a positive impact on its viewers. It’s no secret that Mulaney is off to a rough start, facing negative reviews and disappointed viewers in its first two episodes (despite an odds-defying ratings jump in its second week). The success of its third episode could make or break the show.

Due to some interesting scheduling choices from FOX, Halloween came two weeks early, with themed Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Simpsons, and Mulaney episodes. Holidays can be fertile ground for sitcom material (think of all those Thanksgiving episodes on Friends!) but they can also be traps for clichés and overdone tropes. Luckily, Mulaney took advantage of the opportunity, and produced the best episode of the show’s short lifespan yet. Complete with a grave robbery, a musical number, and a Jewish Shiva, it managed to pass my three-episode test.Read More
