'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.

'Big Bang Theory' react: Sheldon and Amy share their cutest moment yet -- VIDEO

Thursday night’s Big Bang Theory was positively loco(motive) but there’s no way to explain why without a little set up. So, here it goes:

In this Valentine’s Day-themed episode, what was supposed to be a romantic evening turned out to be a rough one for all three of the show’s major couples — Leonard/Penny, Sheldon/Amy, and Howard/Bernadette. At home, Leonard and Penny found themselves dealing with a Yorkie with a belly full of chocolate while Bernadette and Howard had to deal with a tense situation involving Sheldon and Amy.

You see, Amy planned a weekend getaway for her, Sheldon, Howard and Bernadette, and the way she convinced Sheldon to take part was by promising him a romantic dinner on a vintage locomotive. Once at dinner, however, Amy became upset when Sheldon befriended a fellow train enthusiast and paid more attention to his new (totally weird) friend than her. When she pulled him aside to give him a piece of her mind, a big fight erupted and Sheldon acted out — with unexpected consequences. Transcript and video below: READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' recap: Honesty

The case at the center of tonight’s Supernatural was a pretty disgusting one. It involved a monster that used a trunk-like appendage to suck and consume fat from humans. Gross as that is, though, I’d rather watch 20 minutes of some monster called a Fish Taco Pishtaco munching on a portly midwesterner than 20 seconds of Sam and Dean hurling harsh truths at each other. Because at least I can turn away from the former. With the latter, there’s no choice but to sit there and watch those two battle it out, knowing all along that it’s impossibly to truly choose a side in the brother battle.

Once again, I’m exhausted by these boys. And need a hug.

'NCIS' recap: Welcome aboard

“Welcome aboard, probie.”

Those are the three words Ellie Bishop heard at the end of tonight’s NCIS, but getting to that point wasn’t easy.

In fact, there were a few moments in tonight’s episode, which saw the conclusion of the Benham Parsa arc, where it was clear that Gibbs and Bishop weren’t getting along at all. Their spat stemmed from the fact that Bishop had been hiding information about the Parsa case from the team. Specifically? She didn’t tell anyone that she was sort of an expert on him.

'How I Met Your Mother' recap: Letting go

You drenched yourself in Drakkar. You wore a fresh pair of white socks. And you pulled out the best mime moves your body could handle. Yet, the ladies at that party you just left still weren’t interested. What are two down-on-your-luck bros to do? Well, if you’re the guys we met at the top of tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, you’re on your way home alone. That is, until you meet an inebriated Barney Stinson on the road, who swears to show you the way to the Promised Land…of awesomeness.

And show them he did.

Barney took these nameless bros under his wing and taught them the lessons of his people. He took them to a magical strip club to show them the wonders of fearless interaction with females, sent them to Tim Gunn to get outfitted with proper suits, and accompanied them to the party they had struck out at earlier to teach them the moves of a proper Wingman. (“Haaaaave you met…”) READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Recreation' says farewell to Ann and Chris: Will you miss them?

…and just like that, Pawnee has said goodbye to Chris and Ann. And while their move devastated Leslie Knope to the point of nearly rejecting an invitation to breakfast, in all, tonight’s farewell to Chris and Ann was a fitting one.

The episode revolved around Leslie’s efforts to execute one last huge, thoughtful surprise for her departing best friend by breaking ground on the Pawnee Commons, fulfilling a pinky promise to Ann she’d made when they first met. That proved harder than anticipated, though, as her efforts were blocked by Harold from Public Works (Chris Bauer). So while the gang enjoyed an epic party, comprised of 30 mini-parties to celebrate every holiday Ann and Leslie would not be able to celebrate together, Ann and Leslie teamed up to make the Pawnee Commons a reality.

'Supernatural' recap: 'Something's broken here'

It’s just a spat, I know. But any time the Winchester brother are on less-than-friendly terms, a tiny piece of me dies. You hear that, show, I’m DYING. And you DON’T CARE.

Sorry. Freak-out over. I’m not dying. I’m just stressed. As I mentioned, Sam and Dean are still working out some of the core issues that were left in the aftermath of the Gadreel drama. And though they tackled a couple of them head on in tonight’s episode, they’re far from done having it out over everything that has gone down so far this season. But I’ll get to that. First, we have to talk about Garth, who, it turns out, has gone through some pretty big stuff since we last saw him. READ FULL STORY
