'Murder in the First': Not just another cop show

Creating a worthwhile new cop show is tough. At this point, we’ve seen just about every possible variation within the genre, from comedies to reality shows, and every dramatic procedural in between. Plus, two of the biggest cop shows are still in rotation: Law & Order: SVU clearly knows the formula for success, and then there’s the buzzed-about True Detective, which recently raised the bar for just about every detective show from this point forward. So what do you do when everything’s been done and been done well? Spoiler: Murder in the First might have just done it. READ FULL STORY

'The Night Shift' premiere: All the cool kids work at night

When I started seeing promos for The Night Shift, NBC’s new medical drama about a sexy soldier-turned-surgeon, I had two thoughts: 1) There’s no way this character does the soldier thing better than Owen Hunt on Grey’s Anatomy, and 2) This show is everything Enlisted was talking about when it brought about the “Afghanistan excuse,” a.k.a. ex-soldiers using “I was in Afghanistan” as a way to be cool/get out of something. And now, having watched the premiere, I’d say my first impression was pretty valid.

'Chicago P.D.' finale: Who shot [spoiler]?

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the Chicago P.D. season finale, stop reading now!

In the world of Chicago P.D. nothing is black and white. After all, the man at the head of the Intelligence Unit was in prison not all that long ago. But could he be going back?

That’s the question that fans are pondering after the final 30 seconds of that finale, in which Voight walked onto a crime scene that housed Jin’s dead body. Jin. As in a member of Voight’s Intelligence Unit. As in a member of this family we’ve come to love. And as in the (lovable) rat who’d been reporting to Internal Affairs all season, a fact that Voight had earned just half an hour earlier. So had Voight pulled the trigger and killed his own man? My gut tells me no. Voight has a thing with killing cops, and at the end of the day, he did love Jin. Then again, wouldn’t that make for an interesting season 2? R.I.P. Jin. I’ll miss your weekly bursts of brilliance. READ FULL STORY

'Elementary' season finale: Let's talk about it

WARNING: This post contains spoilers about Elementary‘s season 2 finale. If you haven’t watched, proceed with caution.

Our sleuthing duo has become more of a trio. Raise your hand if you feel like it’s a little crowded in here? While I love Rhys Ifans, I’m really resenting Mycroft for coming between Joan and Sherlock. He’s mucking everything up. READ FULL STORY

'Reign' recap: Long may he rest

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of Reign, stop reading now!

I already miss Henry. Mary and Francis are so complicated my head hurts. Plagues suck. And I still miss Julien. Shall we? READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' finale recap: The hero this city deserves

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of Arrow, stop reading now!

My heart can’t take it. And those of you who watch this show with me every week know exactly what I’m about to say: That Olicity scene was faked?! I literally feel like I’ve just been broken up with. And yes, that does make me re-evaluate my life a little bit. But the good news is that this finale was so much more than that one scene. It was action-packed, it provided closure, and it gave us a lot to look forward to. Let’s save this city for one last time in season 2, shall we? READ FULL STORY

'The Originals' recap: Their only Hope

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of The Originals, stop reading now!

[Disclaimer: Time Warner Cable decided to air baseball in NYC tonight, so I had to watch a live-stream, which means no screenshots and few quotables -- but I refused not to watch live!] READ FULL STORY

'Reign' recap: In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Racquetball Ghost

So King Henry pulled a tooth from his fist. He pulled an actual human tooth out of his fist like it was no big deal. Don’t get me wrong, I love these moments when Henry surprises me, but I think I’m going to have to choose the time he humped out of a window over watching him pull a tooth from his fist. Also, how does a tooth get lodged in your fist? Spoiler: I haven’t been in many fist fights guys, but let’s just say my desire to punch people just went way down. Let’s get into this before I start google tooths in fists or something weird.

This episode picked up months after Francis left for battle. Upon his return with Mary’s uncle, the Duke of Guise, Francis ran straight to his beloved bride, and the two had a ridiculously adorable welcome home moment. Too bad it was interrupted by crazy King Henry’s announcement that the Queen of England had fallen, and now it was up to Mary to stake her claim.

'Arrow' recap: All is fair in love and war

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the May 7 episode of Arrow, stop reading now!

Honestly, the fact that I’m still alive to write this recap is a miracle, because I’m pretty sure I did not take a breath through that entire episode. Sitting in my apartment watching by myself, I didn’t say a word, I didn’t go on Twitter during commercials, I didn’t do anything but stare at my television, listen to my heart pounding in my chest, and occasionally think, “How is this not the finale?!” This show just keeps getting better, and I cannot wait for next week. Here’s what went down: READ FULL STORY

'The Originals' recap: Guerrera warfare

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the May 6 episode of The Originals, stop reading now!

Our boys just got played. While Marcel, Elijah, and Klaus focused on looking good, getting revenge, and building armies, two women made their move. And as much as I want to root for the strong females (girl power and whatnot), I’m a little too angry that the wolves ruined another one of Elijah’s suits. But in all honesty, I’m glad Francesca is more than just a boring human. Who needs those, right? Let’s do this! READ FULL STORY
