'Supernatural' recap: Killing things that need killing

On a normal day, the Winchesters would take the case of a girl who was abducted and imprisoned by a family of vampires pretty seriously. “Save the girl!” and all that jazz. But the case featured on Tuesday night’s episode was anything but straightforward.

Why? Because the girl at the center of the case was almost as bloodthirsty as the nest with which she’d spent the last few years. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Heart and souls

When it became obvious that Sam would set out on a solo adventure in this week’s Supernatural, I was hoping the time apart from Dean would be for something more than a case of the week. And I was not disappointed.

As Sam set off to look into a case about a mysterious rage hitting the residents of a small town, Dean stayed back to chase down leads on Abaddon’s whereabouts. Or so he said. Much of Dean’s booze-soaked staycation from hunting was spent working through apprehensions about what he’d have to do once Abaddon was found. After his first experience with the First Blade last week, in which we saw Cain-marked Dean approach the borders of Hulk town, Dean was dragging his feet a bit in his quest to find the ginger demon. He never said all of this, of course, because he’s Dean. According to Dean, Dean’s always fine. But as Crowley would say, bollocks.

'NCIS' react: What did you think of the New Orleans crew?

Washington D.C. crossed paths with The Big Easy on tonight’s episode of NCIS, which doubled as a backdoor pilot for a Louisiana-based spin-off.

In the episode, we met the small but mighty team of NCIS: New Orleans: Scott Bakula as leader Agent Pride, Lucas Black as hard southern gent Agent Lasalle and Zoe McClellan as NOLA transplant Agent Brody. CCH Pounder played the New Class’s medical examiner. Together with the regular batch of NCIS players, they worked the case of a dead congressman who was once a member of the Fed 5, the nickname given to a legendary group of agents that once included Pride, Gibbs and the late Mike Franks.

'Supernatural' recap: Blade of Glory

Our first glimpse at Dean in possession of the First Blade that he and Sam have been chasing for the last few episodes has instilled me with great fear. Fear because he seems aggressive and brutal…and dangerously unpredictable.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. I would be remiss to glaze over the efforts the Winchesters put into obtaining said blade. So allow me to recap… READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Remember this...

I’m not ready to say goodbye. Well, yes I am. But also not. Actually, it’s ok. Not really. Ugh. Welcome to my brain for the last six weeks.

Here’s the problem: When How I Met Your Mother is good, it’s really, really good. And when encountered with one of those Really, Really Good episodes, my heart swells five sizes, I smile like I just found five accidental curlies in a basket of straight-cut french fries…and I also become very upset that How I Met Your Mother is almost over. Tonight’s episode — “Gary Blauman” — was one of those really, really good episodes of which I speak.

What made the episode — about a polarizing wedding guest Gary Blauman — particularly special was that it was told both as a story from Ted to the kids and from Ted to the Mother, who was hearing the tale three days after the wedding while she and Ted were on their first date. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: It's complicated

 Sam and Dean are still in the midst of their brotherly spat, but the Winchesters weren’t the only dynamic duo having relationship troubles in this week’s episode of Supernatural. The other pair of embattled buddies? None other than the Ghostfacers, who made their reappearance this week after a five-season (!) absence.

As you might be able to guess, it wasn’t exactly a happy reunion between the brothers and “supernaturalists”/official pains in the rump Harry (Travis Wester) and Ed (A.J. Buckley). In fact, Ed and Harry were probably the last people Sam and Dean expected to encounter while investigating the case of a girl who died after capturing the image of a mysterious being in a selfie. But it turned out Ed and Harry had picked up the case while tracking a mysterious being known as ThinMan.  And while it wasn’t idea to be working with the Ghostfacers around, Sam and Dean had no choice but to find a way to co-investigating without being tempted to off the mouthy duo. (Actually, it was mostly Dean who had to restrain himself.) READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Mom's the word

Tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother may have stopped short of confirming our worst fears about the Mother’s fate in this heartfelt tale, but it certainly planted enough seeds to have me preparing for a real gut-punch come finale time.

For details, read on for the recap… READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: All about Tran

After several seasons of Supernatural, I’ve gotten used to saying goodbye to people and waiting several seasons to see them again. (See: Jake.) So when the late Kevin Tran showed up on last night’s episode as a ghost, it was a surprise to say the least. But even more surprising than an appearance from Ghost Kevin? The re-appearance of the thought-to-be-dead Mama Tran!

The result of this ghost-mom reunion was one of the sweetest episodes so far this season. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Never again

Ten hours before Robin and Barney were set to get hitched, the gang found themselves making vows of a different kind — to never drink to the point of Hangover Hell ever again.

The declarations were brought on by the aftermath of Barney’s drinking bender that, as we saw in the last new episode of How I Met Your Mother, left him befriending lost bros while wandering the streets.

In this week’s episode, Barney’s adventures in drunkenness were very much over, and what was left was a pile of useless suit-covered flesh. Any other day, this wouldn’t have been too much of an issue, but as I mentioned, we have now arrived at Barney and Robin’s actual wedding day. There were things to do. Specifically, Barney and Robin were set to take their wedding pictures, but since he couldn’t hold himself upright, that was going to be tricky to pull off. Again, this would usually not be a problem because Robin’s a cool bride, but in this case, Robin father was paying for everything and his reaction should Barney show up in a less-than-desirable condition was going to be a big problem.
