'The Sing-Off' recap: One night, six groups, 800 blazers

Well, here we are, at the most wonderful time of the year: The Sing-Off is back, and you can never really know for how long, so cherish every minute, even when they all come on the same night. In its fifth season of dodging the eviction notice NBC keeps hiding in Shawn Stockman’s dressing room, The Sing-Off returned as a one-night, two-hour holiday special. And even at just two hours—half the length of a typical singing show’s weekly allotment—I stand by this being the best happiest show on television.

Hyperbolic? Sure. But what is a cappella for, if not to be a little dramatic. And, of course, for the blazers. There were just So. Many. Blazers, each more beautiful than the next. Always leave them more, except when it comes to lapels: The Sing-Off story. READ FULL STORY

'Supernatural' season finale recap: 'I'm proud of us'

Despite warnings that Supernatural‘s season finale would be a whopper of an episode, I didn’t plan to spend my entire summer trying to recover from the trauma. But it looks like that’s exactly what I’m going to do, following an emotionally exhausting hour that capped off the show’s stellar season 9 Tuesday night.

That may sounds hyper-dramatic. But it’s really not, considering all that happened.


'Bones' season finale recap: Booth and Brennan's worst predicament yet?

A dark, scary cloud of paranoia loomed over tonight’s season finale of Bones as a the team unraveled a conspiracy. They could trust no one, they had to consider everyone outside of the inner circle a threat, and as Booth pursued his high-profile promotion within the FBI, they had more than ever on the line.

'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

'Castle' season finale: Talk about it!

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

We always knew that Beckett and Castle’s road to getting hitched would have, well, a few hitches. A last-minute quickie divorce from a past flame. Venue drama. Maybe some dress drama. But we didn’t expect what actually happened in the final minutes of season 6. (Warning No. 2: Oddly, there’s a Downton Abbey spoiler below, too…) 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
