  • American Horror Story: Coven Recap

    By Zan Romanoff

    October 10, 2013 | 9:53 am

    American Horror Story is, if nothing else, gloriously stylish: the promos for its third season, Coven, were starkly, beautifully creepy, featuring black-clad women in an all-white house, a spare acoustic vocal of House of the Rising Sun playing in the background. The first episode... read on

  • Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: The Asset

    I may have spoken too soon about there being anything redeeming in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. This week's episode was a complete and total snoozefest, predictable from start to finish. The team has to find a way to rescue Fitz and Simmons' old mentor scientist from an evil genius' lair... read on

  • Breaking Down Kenny Powers and Walter White

    Last week, a certain finale brought an epically proportioned brouhaha to flip the Internet upside down.  Those who were satisfied with the technical delivery, who were disappointed on a storytelling level, and who dared to dream all poured out of the Web woodworks. Yet one theory... read on

    Fall pilots are still airing all around us but Hollywood is already looking ahead to seasons future: on Friday it was announced that FOX will be developing a pilot based on Oscar winner Diablo Cody's script Prodigy, about a teen genuis who (surprise!) has been socially isolated... read on

  • Parks and Recreation Reca: Pawnee Eagelton Showdown

    By Zan Romanoff

    October 4, 2013 | 9:20 am

    Parks and Rec continues to be delightful: last night's episode played to every single one of the show's strengths, pairing Tom and Donna with Ron as he attempted to go off-grid by destroying all public evidence of his existence and pitting Leslie and Pawnee against their enemies,... read on

  • Nashville Recap: Never No More

    By Zan Romanoff

    October 3, 2013 | 8:21 am

    You cannot want Nashville not to be ridiculous. If you're going to love the show, you have to revel in the evil machinations of the blackhearted business-focused record execs and the sight of a man so committed to making a change in his life that he saws off his own cast, the... read on
