Agents of SHIELD's Ward Is So Much Better Now That He's Being Himself

Who would have thought that Grant Ward would become my favorite character on Agents of SHIELD? Really. And all it took was one surprising reveal.

I Just Don't Know What To Make Of Warehouse 13's Final Season So Far

Warehouse 13 is back for just six episodes, and apparently a season's worth of plot developments are being smushed into a short space. But even accounting for that, this show is feeling... weird this season. Like, none of the characters seem quite right. And the characters were this show's strength. Spoilers ahead... » 4/22/14 3:36pm Yesterday 3:36pm

Salem's Witches Are Sexily Shocking, But Its Puritans Are Wicked, Too

When we learned that Brannon Braga was returning to television drama with a fantasy show about the Salem witch trials, we had high hopes. And Salem is off to a fun and demented start, imagining that the American colonial witch hysteria involved real witches, while keeping its questions about good and evil complicated. » 4/21/14 4:40pm Monday 4:40pm

Last Night's Arrow Was Like One Long Clip Show from Many, Many Movies

"The Man Under the Hood," puts the Arrow characters in a holding pattern. Everyone ends the episode pretty much where they were in the last one. To make it up to us, the story is an homage to many, many films, including The Dark Knight Rises to Django Unchained. Check out the nonstop homages. » 4/17/14 10:20am 4/17/14 10:20am

Supernatural Has Broken The 4th Wall So Often, Its Hands Are Bleeding

This was sort of a fascinating episode of Supernatural, a show that is now older than God but still manages to spark with life from time to time. The show promised us another "metafictional" episode, along the lines of the Trickster and Carver Edlund romps or "The French Mistake," but delivered something very different. » 4/16/14 5:06pm 4/16/14 5:06pm

Thank Joss, Agents Of SHIELD Has Started Torturing Its Characters

The more bedraggled and miserable the Agents of SHIELD get, the more watchable the show seems to be. That's not much of a surprise — misery is usually more fun to watch than comfort — but what's especially great is how these characters have seemed to come to life as their world dies. Spoilers abound... » 4/16/14 11:30am 4/16/14 11:30am

The Sequel To That Sexy Bathroom Misunderstanding On Star-Crossed

Poor Taylor — she can't help leading aliens on. She's just constantly being misunderstood. First she's trying to seduce Drake, and he thinks she's a secret Trag agent and "let's get naked in the bathroom" is code for "let's unleash Black Cyber." Now she tries to bond with Sophia, but Sophia thinks "bond" is code for "get… » 4/15/14 3:40pm 4/15/14 3:40pm

Don't Expect A Dark Ending To Warehouse 13's Saga

We didn't realize how much we'd missed Warehouse 13 until it came back. And then we remembered: the previous season ended by hinting at some really dark stuff, leaving us expecting a season opener with some sharp edges. Instead, we got a return to the show's usual warm fuzzy tone. Which is what we should have expected… » 4/15/14 12:40pm 4/15/14 12:40pm

Once Upon A Time Lets Hook Be The Hero. He Fails.

Last night, Once Upon a Time revealed what Hook was up to during the "lost year." Turns out, it was absolutely nothing at all. But Once Upon A Time feeds on nothing, this show devours it. This is a show that runs simply on the fact that we all really like Disney cosplay. A lot. Which is why they brought the Little… » 4/15/14 12:12am 4/15/14 12:12am

Why We're Quitting Alfonso Cuarón's Believe

When we first heard that director Alfonso Cuarón was working on a television series about a superpowered girl, we were excited, although that excitement faded with the rapid turnover of series showrunners and rumblings of major changes to the original concept. Now, six episodes into the show, we're ready to quit Believe » 4/14/14 4:40pm 4/14/14 4:40pm
