Scandal Finale Recap: The Price of a Free and Fair Election

Scandal Finale Recap: The Price of a Free and Fair Election
I think we all went into this Scandal finale thinking that we’d spend the hour waiting for the bomb at the church to go off. The penultimate episode ended with a clock ticking down from sixty minutes, and, hey, sixty minutes is exactly the amount of time in a Scandal episode. We all went in... Read more »

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Lion and the Rose

Game of Thrones Winners and Losers: The Lion and the Rose
On this week’s Game of Thrones, we didn’t spend any time with last week’s big winner, so the Hound wasn’t even eligible for the repeat. That left the door wide open for a brand new champion. Who stands to gain (or lose) the most from the results of the Purple Wedding? Who is a victim... Read more »

Game of Thrones recap: The Lion and the Rose
Sorry, friends. The Lion and the Rose in this Game of Thrones episode were not Jaime and Loras finally making your fanfic dreams come true. Nope, the Lion and the Rose referred to in the title were Joffrey and Margaery because…somebody’s getting married! Blah blah Purple Wedding blah blah. This episode was all about books. Here’s...

Scandal recap, Flesh and Blood

Scandal recap, Flesh and Blood
Tonight was the penultimate episode of Scandal, and it was all about family bonds — and a bag full of semen, basically. One thing I realized while watching tonight’s show is that Mellie and Eli are kindred spirits. Both of them were (or are) stuck in marriages in which their spouses are in love with... Read more »

Game of Thrones, Two Swords: Westerosi Winners and Losers

Game of Thrones, Two Swords: Westerosi Winners and Losers
Sunday night marked the premiere of Game of Thrones‘s fourth season, and we had a chance to meet up with all of our favorite buddies from Westeros and beyond. Some of them are doing better than others, naturally. Let’s see who had a good night and who, well, didn’t. Related Posts: Game of Thrones recap,... Read more »

Game of Thrones recap: Two Swords

Game of Thrones recap: Two Swords
The Westerosi posse is back, thank goodness. This premiere of the fourth season of Game of Thrones was really more of a “let’s catch up with everybody” episode instead of a focused hour of television, but I’m okay with that. It has been a year since we’ve seen these people on our TV screens, and... Read more »

Game of Thrones Season 4 from A-Z

Game of Thrones Season 4 from A-Z
Game of Thrones Season Four starts next Sunday, April 6. I don’t know if you’re ready, but I am. Since I watch the show every week with a Game of Thrones newbie who hasn’t read the books, I thought I’d put together a little A-Z catalogue of the people you will encounter in the upcoming...

The Walking Dead review, "Us"

The Walking Dead review, "Us"
The latter half of this season of The Walking Dead has been leading us through character arc after character arc along the road to Terminus. Tonight we finally reached the promised land and, at the very last minute, met a woman named Mary, who seems like a nice enough lady. But the Governor also seemed... Read more »

The Walking Dead recap: "Alone"

The Walking Dead recap: "Alone"
Oh, this show. Every time I watch it, I feel like I’m watching wasted promise. The premise is so good. The potential for drama and change and tension is so high. But the show fails time and again because the characters have been so poorly written for so long. Actually, it’s interesting. Critics have complained... Read more »

Sorry No Walking Dead Recap. Blame Justin Timberlake. I do.

Sorry No Walking Dead Recap. Blame Justin Timberlake. I do.
I had grandiose dreams of getting home from the United Center last night, watching The Walking Dead, and recapping it. But that didn’t happen. We didn’t get home until almost 12:30 AM, and that’s about three hours past my bedtime. So, no zombies. But what about the concert? It was amazing. I will admit to... Read more »
