'Dexter' Recap: 'Ricochet Rabbit' Sets Up Explosive Season 6 Stretch Run

by Alex Moaba, posted Dec 4th 2011 10:10PM
Last week's 'Dexter' twist revealed that Professor Gellar, who we thought was the mastermind of the Doomsday Killer's apocalyptic murder spree, was actually a frozen figment of his disciple Travis' demented imagination. 'Ricochet Rabbit' re-focused our attention on Travis, who emerged as a a fully-formed 'Dexter' villain, a worthy adversary for Miami Metro's own Bay Harbor Butcher.

Travis can no longer be seen as a confused, kind-hearted kid who fell under the influence of a deranged cult-leader -- he's a dangerous, deluded psychopath who's just as evil and crazy as we thought Gellar was. He spent much of this episode in the midst of a full-blown psychotic hallucination, talking to Gellar like he had blocked out killing him three years ago. We also learned he was diagnosed psychotic at an early age and probably murdered his parents. It's now clear just how how warped Travis' brain has been all along, and how good a job Colin Hanks has done of portraying what it can look like when a crazy person latches onto a violent religious ideology.

Review: Top Chef - Season Finale: Part 1

by Allison Waldman, posted Dec 3rd 2009 2:45AM
season_finale_part_one_top_chef_season_six(S06E14) Well, if you think this competition was getting easier, forget it. This is the toughest Top Chef I can remember. These final four were all excellent and as they gathered for the last leg to the finale, you could see that it was game on.

Unlike other seasons, there aren't any obvious villains in this group. Who are you rooting for? I don't know. I like them all in some ways, and yet there isn't a clear favorite either.

I like Kevin, but the Voltaggio brothers have been excellent, too. Their food really does look good enough to eat! And Jen, for all her insecurities, has been great throughout. Tonight would be a close call. More after the jump.

Review: Top Chef - Culinary Olympics

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 19th 2009 1:05AM
tom_padma_top_chef(S06E12) When I saw that the title of tonight's episode was "Culinary Olympics," I didn't really imagine what the chefs would be going through. Were they going to be pole vaulting into the kitchen, did they have to prepare a meal on an ice skating rink? What could be the Olympian angle? Well, apparently there's a culinary competition that's as intense as the Olympics -- and it's not held in a kitchen stadium with Alton Brown doing play by play.

That said, this may have been one of the toughest assignments ever on Top Chef. I tried to envision how past season winners -- let alone the runners up -- would have done in the same circumstances that these final five faced. I can't say for sure that I can think of one that would have aced it ... and for how this five did, read on.

So You Think You Can Dance: Los Angeles Auditions (season premiere)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 10th 2009 1:23AM
So You Think You Can Dance(S06E01) FOX is easing us into this new fall season of So You Think You Can Dance with only one episode per week for the first three. Then, the show will settle into its regular Tuesday/Wednesday timeslots; keeping them warm for American Idol in the winter.

Things kicked off in LA with Adam Shankman joining Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy on the dais. I wouldn't mind Shankman taking that slot permanently, as he's the most consistent of the rotating "third judges." With the shorter one-hour premieres, there was little focus on the terrible; instead they chose to show us more of what was great -- a smart move.

If SYTYCD is to be the showcase for the most talented amateur dancers on the planet, we need to see how great they are. Like American Idol, there have been seasons where SYTYCD went too deep into the bad dance, but anyone can do that. What's amazing is seeing people do things you could never in a million years achieve.

'Project Runway' Season 6 Preview

by Andrew Scott, posted Jul 9th 2009 2:00PM
Project RunwayAfter a year of nasty legal battles, 'Project Runway' is finally coming back in style.

The show's long-awaited sixth season faced an uncertain future for much of 2008. After the Weinstein Co. signed a reported multi-million dollar deal to move the show from Bravo to Lifetime, NBC Universal (which owns Bravo) filed a lawsuit, which was finally settled in April of this year. 'Runway' will now air on Lifetime as planned, starting Aug. 20 at 10PM.

Season 5 ended its run on Bravo in Oct., 2008.

So now that it has a new home, will 'Project Runway' be any different from previous seasons? Here's what we know so far.

Idol champ's new single with Chris Brown - VIDEO

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 21st 2008 1:02PM
Jordin SparksFor a reputedly lackluster season, I'm impressed with how well Jordin Sparks seems to be developing her career. I hate to say it, but you kind of have to put it down to her being young and somewhat bland. As such, since she hadn't really discovered her own unique style and approach she was able to be molded into whatever record producers (and Idol) wanted her to be.

That said, she's a fairly standard R&B/Pop artist, but she's got a nice voice and "Tattoo" has a great hook. In fact, I was digging the song for a few days before I knew who sang it and was surprised to hear it was her (I know, I'm old and out of touch but radio stations barely tell you what song they're playing anymore). Now the video has dropped for her latest single, a duet with Chris Brown. You can watch and let us know what you think after the jump.
