American Horror Story’s refusal to reveal its theme in advance was an early sign that season six would be more unusual than... well,usual. The first five episodes were formatted as a reality TV show—My Roanoke Nightmare—and last night’s episode six unveiled the much-rumored BIG TWIST. But the twist, sadly, was far…
If a character on a popular genre show is looking to get hitched, you may want to brace yourself. On Sunday’s Fear the Walking Dead, a seemingly happy wedding went horribly wrong and it was impossible not to think of the iconic scene from Game of Thrones: The Red Wedding.
Fear the Walking Dead returned Sunday as what felt like a very different show. It felt more like an episode of Lost, really, focusing on one single character—in this case Nick—and flashing back to reveal a significant piece of his past.
Sunday’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead was the mid-season finale, leaving viewers with a few cliffhangers as the show goes away until August. It’s been a mostly monotonous, occasionally interesting, season but this episode finally put gave us some meat on the bone (so to speak)
Despite our initial misgivings—did we really need another police procedural?—Lucifer won us over fast. In fact, after just two episodes, we were ready to declare it the best supernatural detective show we’d ever seen. Now, with the finale airing tonight, we’re just as excited about the show as ever. Here’s why.
If you didn’t fall asleep in the first half of Sunday’s episode of Fear the Walking Dead, you were rewarded with one of the best scenes in the series to date—a tense action scene with a pretty big revelation at the end.
You thought it couldn’t be done! But they totally did it.
I kind of love Supergirl, but jeez is this show uneven. Just watch this clip, which showcases everything great about the series, followed immediately by everything terrible.
Shadowhunters is a cheesy fantasy show airing on a network that nobody’s heard of (the former ABC Family, now confusingly called Freeform). But maybe because this show slid so far under the radar, it was able to capture a ton of the subversiveness of the books by Cassandra Clare, including both same-sex relationships…
Alec was about to get hitched to Lydia. As powerful Shadowhunters, they’d rule the Institute, restore the Lightwood name, spend their lives in a loveless union, etc. But Alec’s feelings could not be denied, and with the season finale coming next week, Shadowhunters finally delivered with “Malec.”
Nearly everything that happens on Damien is utterly ridiculous. But we’ve narrowed it down to the three most WTF-did-that-just-happen moments. Par for the course when you’re dealing with the Antichrist, the type of guy who can inspire spontaneous self-castration among those in his midst.
Superheroes! They are dark and vengeful and their lives are full of miserable carnage. Or carnivorous misery. I dunno. Point is, superheroes are existentially dismal and violent. So when Supergirl teamed up with the Flash, it was just an orgy of death and angst. Oh wait. No, it wasn’t.
The first time we went to Chloe’s house, way back in episode two of Lucifer, we learned that her mother, Penelope, was a former science-fiction B-movie goddess. The show has been teasing her reveal all season, and last night, on “Pops,” the Vampire Queen herself finally turned up, played by a perfectly-cast Rebecca De…
Shadowhunters’ first season wraps up April 5, and with the Mortal Cup already in hand, the show has ramped up the personal drama as the mission to take down Valentine continues. In “Blood Calls to Blood,” Jace and Clary endured a series of revelations that culminated in the show’s most shocking moment so far.
From the beginning, Supergirl has been a flawed show with a lot of heart. The “problem of the week” storytelling has occasionally fallen a little flat, but the characters have gotten sharper and sharper. But last night’s episode, “Manhunter,” proved Supergirl has become essential viewing.
We already knew that Amenadiel plucked Malcolm and his sleazy facial hair from the fiery pit after the fallen police officer was taken off life support. And we knew that Dan, who’s been trying to hard to work things out with Chloe, was the person who shot him. But in both cases, we didn’t know why.
Monday’s episode of Supergirl was kinda forgettable... but it did give us the scene where Supergirl (who’s turned eeevil) goes into a bar and starts getting rowdy, flicking peanuts into the liquor bottles with her superstrength. Remind you of anything?
On “This World Inverted,” Clary’s search for her mother takes her through a portal into a sun-dappled dimension where Shadowhunters don’t exist, but nerdcore most certainly does. The best character is (as always) Magnus, who now favors cardigans and cats, and peddles his fortune-telling trade via cheesy infomercials.
After all that flailing around after those damn missing wings, this week’s Lucifer, “Et Tu, Doctor?” was way light on the Satan stuff. The homicide du jour also took a back seat, as Lucifer came to the unpleasant realization that he was capable of jealousy—and Chloe’s corruption case took an unexpected turn.
