Amy Wants to Burn Down the Office on 'Enlightened' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 13th 2011 8:30AM
'Enlightened' S01/E10Last week on 'Enlightened' (Mon., 9:30PM ET on HBO), Amy convinced Tyler to give her access to the email accounts of the top bosses at Abbadonn Industries. Now that she's read some of those emails, Amy's horrified.

And she knows what she wants to do: Burn it down.

So she does. After pouring gasoline all over the floor she lights it on fire and watches from her desk as the office ignites.

Thankfully for all concerned, it turns out to have been nothing but a detailed revenge fantasy, which never caught fire outside of Amy's own imagination. Now will she burn her bosses in a less literal way?

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 12th 2011 6:45AM
The cold winds are rising, but Stannis Baratheon may be a more pressing problem for the Lanisters in 'Game of Thrones.' In the latest teaser for Season 2, King Robert's brother stakes his claim to the throne currently occupied by young Joffrey.

"My brother left no true-born heirs. By right and birth and blood I do this day lay claim to the iron throne of Westeros. ... The iron throne is mine by right." He follows this with the chilling threat: "They will bend the knee or I will destroy them."

Watch the clip after the jump.

The Good Wife What Went Wrong Recap['The Good Wife' - 'What Went Wrong']

Alternate episode title: How Alicia learned to deal with life sans sex. Subtitle: Facebook ruins more lives!

After a seemingly slamdunk case ends in a guilty verdict, the Lockhart/Gardner team goes into overdrive to find out what happened in the jury room.

Following several trips to the button lady, an arrest, a wonderful scene between Alicia and Kalinda (more on that below) and multiple visits to the judge, our hero defense attorney saved the day. How? Because the judge friended a jury. Darn that Facebook Facebranch!

'The Good Wife' loves its social media and technology stories.

And now the meat of the episode ...

'Once Upon a Time' Season 1, Episode 7 Recap: A Huntsman's Broken Heart (VIDEO)

Jamie Dornan['Once Upon a Time' - 'The Heart is a Lonely Hunter']

A kiss can be a very powerful thing in the world of 'Once Upon a Time' -- we've seen kisses bestow memories, save lives and this week (however inadvertently), even end them.

We were warned that death would strike during the midseason finale, but I was curious to see how someone might get away with murder in Storybrooke while presumably being able to avoid punishment.

This week's episode gave us a suitably fantastical answer to that quandary, utilizing the magic of fairytale land without needing to implicate anyone in the crime.

'Chuck' Set Visit: Yvonne Strahovski and Carrie-Anne Moss Share Nudist Colony Intel (EXCLUSIVE CLIP)

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 8th 2011 10:40AM
Chuck castToday is a bittersweet day for loyal 'Chuck' fans, as the show wrapped its final night of filming just a few hours ago. But even though the cameras have stopped rolling, the Buy More lives on -- at least for nine more episodes, the first of which airs tomorrow night (Fri., Dec. 9, 8PM ET on NBC).

AOL TV was on set for the filming of 'Chuck versus the Hack Off,' which was also the final episode of the series that Zachary Levi directed. It guest-stars 'Community' favorite Danny Pudi, 'Lost' alum Eric Lange and ass-kicking 'Matrix' heroine Carrie-Anne Moss, and judging by what we saw during our visit, it promises to be one of the show's most hilarious episodes yet.

We caught up with Moss and Yvonne Strahovski to get the scoop on why Chuck, Sarah and Gertrude find themselves infiltrating a cult; Levi's directing style; and what Strahovski was feeling as the show neared its end. We also have an exclusive -- and revealing -- preview of tomorrow night's episode, so read on for more.

Nothing Goes to Plan on a Takedown Mission on 'Homeland' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 5th 2011 7:30AM
'Homeland' - 'Representative Brody'It was such a perfectly orchestrated plan that the veteran television viewer in me knew something was going to go wrong. But I didn't imagine just how wrong when Carrie and Saul's plan to take down Walker was implemented on 'Homeland' (Sun., 10PM ET on Showtime).

They'd put so much effort into getting the Saudi Arabian diplomat to work their side as a mole, it seemed unlikely all that work would be for naught. But Walker proved why he's such a dangerous operative for the opposition in the United States. His actions also confirmed that there is definitely a mole within the CIA operation.

The Good Wife Season 3, Episode 10 Recap['The Good Wife' - 'Parenting Made Easy']

I'm a sucker for Julianna Maruglies walking down hallways in tears.

What does that mean? A few things first:

Michael J. Fox, Jennifer Carpenter and John Michael Higgins (he was freed from 'Happily Divorced' for a hot second!) all sat around in a room with Alicia for much of the episode. MJF turned in an understated performance, in a good way. Carpenter was pretty convincing as a uber Christian professor trying to get her job back and a far cry from potty-mouthed Deb Morgan. Quite refreshing. JMH fit the role of greedy arbitrator nicely.

For the first time in a while, the case of the week wasn't overly complicated, nor did it have to contend with an action-packed installment of the Eli Gold show. It had space to grow. It wasn't the most compelling, but that's OK.

'Homeland' Recap, Episode 10: Brody Runs Right Over Carrie

by Michael Hogan, posted Dec 4th 2011 11:00PM
What is Brody up to?

Every week, I watch 'Homeland' and find myself caught up in the trajectories of all kinds of sub-plots and supporting characters, only to return in the end to that same question: What is Brody trying to accomplish? Who is this secretive, seemingly tortured soldier, really? What does he want? What makes him tick?

Though the episode was titled "Representative Brody," Sergeant Nick's story line was a lot less interesting than Carrie's this week. Things had been looking up for poor Carrie, but the what-goes-up-must-come-down logic of this show demanded that she must suffer, and suffer she did. Start with the look on her face when she realized what a fool she'd been to think that she and Brody might have a future together. She'd gone to the trouble of introducing a bottle of white to her desolate refrigerator and cueing up a bit of Miles Davis, and all he wanted was to make sure that she had no intention of ever telling anybody about their little weekend at the cabin. Claire Danes earned her inevitable Emmy nomination with the expression of tasered hope that crossed her face. I felt like crying for her.

'Once Upon a Time' Season 1, Episode 6 Recap: Prince Charming's Identity Crisis

Prince Charming['Once Upon a Time' - 'The Shepherd']

Well, no-one said that it was going to be easy. The course of true love never did run smooth, as Shakespeare wisely wrote, and for those of us hoping that Snow White and Prince Charming might find their happily ever after six episodes into the show's first season, this week's installment of 'Once Upon a Time' certainly had its share of emotional ups and downs.

We were treated to a little of Snow and Charming's backstory in episode three, but 'The Shepherd,' written by genre mainstays Andrew Chambliss ('The Vampire Diaries,' 'Dollhouse' and 'Heroes') and Ian Goldberg ('FlashForward' and 'The Sarah Connor Chronicles') proved to be a perfect companion piece to 'Snow Falls,' bringing us right up to the events of that episode while also providing some surprising revelations about "Prince James."

Ahead of tonight's screening the cast members appeared on 'Today' and shared their memories of being on the show. Watch them talking to Matt Lauer after the jump. (Elizabeth looks exactly the same!)

Mena Suvari is The Black Dahlia on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

Mena Suvari, 'American Horror Story' - 'Spooky Little Girl'We're not sure what was the more disturbing revelation this week on 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 9PM ET on VH1). That Tate fathered one of Vivian's children, which may mean that it's the Antichrist. That Hayden lost her cool and killed Constance's young lover. Or, that Ben finally saw the real Moira O'Hara.

We're sure for Ben it was the latter, as she told him that he's finally starting to see things for what they really are and then he saw her for the Frances Conroy she really is. When Elizabeth Short (Mena Suvari) walked in as a surprise patient, Ben didn't realize he was seeing the Black Dahlia, just as he refused to see that Hayden was a ghost.

by Catherine Lawson, posted Nov 30th 2011 7:30AM
If you've been wanting to see more of Christopher Meloni on your television screens, congratulations: You could soon be seeing a lot more of him. According to TVLine, Meloni's eyeing a major role in the upcoming fifth season of HBO's 'True Blood.' How great is that?!

If Meloni does join 'True Blood' it would the first foray into television work for the 'Oz' veteran since he abruptly quit 'Law & Order: SVU' earlier this year. He's reportedly currently filming his role as Colonel Hardy in the Zack Snyder/Christopher Nolan 'Superman' movie reboot, 'Man of Steel.'

It's thought that Meloni is pondering a role as an "incredibly powerful vampire." But who? The 'True Blood' fan sites and Twitter have exploded with speculation, so check out some theories after the jump. But be warned, there may be SPOILERS ahead ...

'Gossip Girl' Season 5, Episode 9 Recap: Top 3 OMG Moments (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 28th 2011 10:30PM
Chuck and Blair['Gossip Girl' - 'Rhodes to Perdition']

They say blood is thicker than water, but on the Upper East Side, few things are thicker than money -- a lesson that the artist formerly known as Ivy learned all too well this week. She misguidedly seems to think that the Rhodes name has earned her a bulletproof vest, but in reality, it's only painted a bigger target on her back.

While far too much of this week's 'Gossip Girl' was concerned with Chivy drama, it was nice to see Nate at the center of his own storyline for once (even if said storyline was still kind of a snooze), and the scenes between Chuck and Blair were both touching and tragic. Finally, we saw Chuck admit what we already knew; now it's just a matter of time before Blair comes to her senses, right?

The episode was somewhat lacking in twists and turns this week, so instead of struggling to find our top five jaw-dropping moments, we narrowed them down to three instead. Join us after the jump for our favorite scenes.

Sneak Peek at the Next Episode of 'The Walking Dead' (VIDEO)

For those 'Walking Dead' (Sundays, 9PM ET on AMC) fans who can't bear to wait until February for their next dose of new action, here's a tantalising glimpse of what we can expect when the drama resumes in February.

For most of this season so far the survivors of the zombie apocalypse have been able to rest up and hide out at Hershel's farm. We've already discovered that all is not as it seems in the kindly veterinarian's home, and in this sneak peek at the second half of Season 2 we see both Hershel and Shane act.

For those who haven't yet watched last night's episode, here's a !!SPOILER ALERT!! You might want to come back and watch this later.

'Homeland' Recap, Episode 9: Is Brody's Motivation Believable?

by Michael Hogan, posted Nov 28th 2011 12:15AM


The worst part of any monster movie is the moment when you finally see the creature itself. Not the first glimpse, but the first real good look at the thing. After an hour or so of imagining it in all its unfathomable horridity, you're suddenly presented with an actual entity -- the best the special-effects team could come up with. How could it possibly live up to your expectations?

That's kind of how I feel about the back story presented, via flashback, in this episode of 'Homeland' on Showtime. Last episode, after weeks of hinting one way and then the other, the writers let us know, once and for all, that Sergeant Brody has some kind of connection with Abu Nazir, the most wanted terrorist in the world. This week, we found out why. And while the story wasn't horrible, I had some major issues with it.
