This week on Reign, the tension is political and personal, as pagans force the love triangle out into the open, Bash begins to truly understand his precarious position at court, and danger surrounds Mary. …
"Yes, they drugged you with poppy Mary. It’s the same drug I use to roofie all my daughters-in-law. I’m surprised you haven’t built up an immunity. Another failing of yours I suppose."
This week on Reign, there’s another obstacle in the way of Francis and Mary’s relationship, the pagans are calling from inside the castle, and Mary and Bash finally get cozy. …
"Those pagans, everything they do is so dramatic and flamboyant!" Bash says. "It just makes me want to set myself on fire."
The CW went out on a ledge when they greenlit Reign, a historical drama about Mary Queen of Scots starring …
If you want to nitpick Reign we could be here all day. But Reign never pretends at historical accuracy, it’s merely using Mary’s story as a jumping off point to tell it’s own tales. Considering our culture is so steeped in spinoffs, reboots, and reimaginings, why is it so hard for us to accept someone taking history and using it as an inspiration for fiction?
I was on the Huffington Post Live discussing why there are about zero female superhero movies. I’m using this space as a place to apologize to The Hulk. I’m sorry I dissed you. I’m also sorry your movies aren’t very good.
(I think this segment actually went a lot better than the last one I was on, as far as everyone getting to talk and it being slightly less awkward. Google hangouts, however, are weird places where you never know when you might be on screen for no apparent reason. Which is why my default is always ‘thoughtful nodding’ instead of my usual ‘dead eyed stare’.)
21 Surprising Ways ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Is Like ‘Arrested Development’
Do the residents of Rosewood have more in common with the scheming Bluth family than you’d think? We take stock of some of the biggest similarities between these weird clans, their impressive prison records, and their tendencies to always leave a note.
'Teen Wolf' Mid-Season Finale Recap: The Final Battle Brings Death and New Romances
This week on the mid-season finale ofTeen Wolf, everything comes to a head as Scott finally fulfills his destiny and becomes a true alpha.
The literary reference made most often throughout this hour is to Joesph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, but for my money the artistic work with the most influence on this half season was The Matrix. Just look at the white room Allison, Stiles and Scott wake up in. Or all the talk about Scott unlocking his full Neo-esque potential. Or all the slow-mo. My god, this season had a lot of slow-mo. They were bullet-timing like it was 1999.
The first part of season 3 set up two parallel and intersecting threats: that of the alpha pack and the darach. The mid-season finale takes care of both of these enemies, clearing the way for more creepy beasties next year.
Teen Wolf, MTV’s surprise supernatural hit, is winding down for a mid-season hiatus. A lot has happened during the first part of season three, none of it very good news for the residents of Beacon Hills….
This is just a public service announcement to get Derek a vacation. The poor guy needs a break. Maybe somewhere tropical? Basically anywhere he won’t be stabbed repeatedly would be good.
'Pretty Little Liars' Recap: A Killer Surprise Party
This week on Pretty Little Liars, Paige throws Emily what turns out to be the worst surprise party ever. Meanwhile, Ashley Marin realizes house arrest means no wine and briefly considers going back to the slammer. I’m sure her cellmate could make a fine, aged toilet wine. Any port in an alcohol-free storm, right?
Meanwhile, Spencer is little more than a ghost haunting the outskirts of this episode, which is probably why not much of anything happens to move the main mystery forward. And in a shocking turn of events, Aria’s storyline mostly revolves around a guy who is probably too old for her and yet seems to exclusively date high schoolgirls.
Serious question: do women over 18 exist in Rosewood
? Why does every guy in town seem to be dating someone in high school? Does everyone just get out of dodge for college to minimize their risk of being run over with a car? In Rosewood, it seems like there are murderous high school girls
and foxy middle-aged mamas with no middle ground.
This is a question I’m dwelling on because there’s not much else to really delve into about this week’s episode. Which is not to say there aren’t some good moments, most of which revolve around Emily. But despite the episode being crammed with multiple storylines, in true Pretty Little Liars fashion, most of the plots aren’t really meaty enough to sustain even B or C stories.
