It Finally Happened On Arrow, And It Was Awesome

During the flashback in last night’s episode, “The Fallen,” a deadly bioweapon is released because of Ollie’s butterfingers and no one cares. No one cares, because the A-plot gives us something we’ve been waiting for. Hell, we’ve been dying for it. But never in a million years did we think it would happen like this.

The Lizzie Borden Chronicles Just Went Completely, Insanely Over The Top

We’re three episodes into The Lizzie Borden Chronicles’ eight-ep run on Lifetime, and last night’s episode, “Flowers,” was full of dramatic twists galore — including some very gory ones that sacrificed some key characters (or seemed to, anyway). Where the hell can this show possibly go next? » 4/20/15 3:58pm Monday 3:58pm

Orphan Black Delivers Its Best Clone-Impersonating-Another-Clone Act Yet

Yes, Orphan Black is back and it is as demented as ever. While one of our Leda clones finds herself imprisoned (and maybe slightly crazier than usual), Sarah has to pull off the greatest acting trick of her clone impersonating career. Plus, we’ve got scary new clones — and a rather scary Delphine, as well. » 4/19/15 9:50am 4/19/15 9:50am

Sailor Moon Crystal Has Relapsed Into The Same Old Awfulness

Charles Baudelaire once said that the finest trick of the Devil is to persuade you that he does not exist. Sailor Moon Crystal is in essence, very similar to the Devil in this regard — except that its greatest trick is to persuade you that it could be better than it had been. But it couldn’t even keep that trick up. » 4/18/15 12:30pm 4/18/15 12:30pm

The Central Irony Of Person Of Interest: Too Much Privacy Can Kill You


Last night's episode of Person of Interest was promoted as the return of Taraji P. Henson as her beloved character, Detective Carter — but it was really a dive into the character of Reese, who can't open up to people and can't share himself with anyone. And in this episode, it nearly gets him killed. » 4/15/15 12:10pm 4/15/15 12:10pm

It's Official: Melinda May Just Became The Star Of Agents Of SHIELD

Since its first episode, Agents of SHIELD has circled around the problem of how to deal with superhumans. At times, the show has felt like a regular spy adventure — but it's always come back to the problem of extraordinary abilities. Rarely, though, has the show's take on the issue felt as fresh as it did last night. » 4/15/15 8:30am 4/15/15 8:30am

On This Week's Chronicles, Lizzie Borden Has A Good Time Being Very Bad

Lifetime's Lizzie Borden Chronicles got off to a strong start last week, and this week's episode, "Patron of the Arts" — full of smirky stare-downs, cheeky exchanges, and plenty of gruesome special effects — suggests there's much more knowingly soapy, murderous mayhem to come. Yay! » 4/13/15 5:05pm 4/13/15 5:05pm
