Rejoice, Newbies! Jess got her own douchebag jar! Well, technically it’s an Annoyance Bowl — which Nick finds much less satisfying, perhaps because of the sheer glee Jess displayed while putting money in the bowl — totally at odds with the intention of the bowl. Still, how did it take this long for Jess to get the bowl? The singing alone could have bought them all a nice dinner at Outback Steakhouse by now. But I digress… All the roommates’ quirks were on display last night. But only in Jess’s case did the story nearly end in murder… READ FULL STORY
Tag: TV Recap (91-100 of 888)
[Note: This is a recap, folks. So, as the word suggests, we'll be talking about the episode. Don't want to ruin the fun for yourself? Join our convo only after watching the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother.]
How I Met Your Mother spent the first half of its current season keeping the news of Barney and Robin’s impending engagement a secret from viewers. But after the cat was let out of the bag in the winter finale, I can’t help but feel like the truth has set them free. READ FULL STORY
It’s the final countdown! In “Florida,” Jack was still riding the high of defeating Kaylie Hooper to claim his rightful spot as Kabletown CEO. But since the promotion wasn’t official just yet, he was tying up some loose ends. That included a trip to Florida to take care of his mother’s estate. He invited Liz to accompany him, and she agreed in an effort to be more spontaneous. But the mentor/mentee got quite a shock when they discovered that Colleen’s live-in nurse, Martha, was much more than a nurse. At first, Jack believed his mother had been scammed. But twist!
Mrs. Silly Colleen had really taken a female lover, and just failed to tell Jack. READ FULL STORY
Supernatural is back! And on this week’s episode, Sam and Dean had to stop being annoyed with each other for 20 seconds in order to help Castiel rescue an angel.
Seem simple? It kinda was — especially by Supernatural standards. In fact, I found this week’s episode to be much less about their mission and more about deeper personal plots. In Sam’s case, he had to choose between a life with Amelia and a life of hunting.
As we know, Dean has been in this position before, and this is hardly the first time a Winchester has done the hokey pokey with “normal life.” Both have tried and — so far — failed to succeed in having a regular life. In the past, Sam has always been better at moving on beyond hunting, but this week proved that it will always be hard for Sam to let Dean shoulder the responsibility alone. READ FULL STORY
Nickels. That’s the nickname given to Nick by his father Walt (Dennis Farina), who paid a visit last night. Well… Nickels and “Little Penis” (more on that later). It turns out that Nick’s dad is better than Nick at a lot of things — charming the pants off of people (sometimes even himself), feely cup, growing a luxurious mustache, and swindling Winston. But what Nick lacks in suave, he makes up for by not being a damn con man. And so we begin the tale of the demoralization of Nick Miller by the coward Walt Miller… READ FULL STORY
The end is nigh, nerds! As a part of her lifelong quest to have it all, Liz started fertility treatments. But of course the hormones from the injections made her extra crazy and forced Lemon to reconsider her options: She could go it the old-fashioned way, wait at least another four years to adopt a newborn, or adopt an older child. (An older kid? Gross!) Ultimately, with some unlikely help from Tracy, she decided that maybe she could handle an older child. So it seems that Liz Lemon might end up with a kid by the season’s end after all. READ FULL STORY
Race relations and swingers weekends: Two things New Girl probably shouldn’t have taken on. While I’m not arguing what happened with the roomies last night wasn’t believable, was it necessary Newbies? Most ridiculously, Schmidt took a cue from the Michael Scott Handbook and endeavored to be so inclusive he actually ended up coming off all kinds of racist. Even Winston’s attempt to exploit his friends’ naïveté backfired dreadfully — although with a spectacular Urban Uncle Remus tale along the way. And Nick ended this week’s ep alone and grumpy once again. At least one thing’s constant in this crazy, mixed-up world! Onward. READ FULL STORY
This year’s Doctor Who Christmas special fell perfectly in line with the episodes we’ve seen so far this season: clever, funny, heart-tugging, topped with sadness, and served with a side of mystery. And, impressively, it did all the aforementioned while also introducing the Doctor’s new companion.
So how’d they do it? With a tale called “The Snowmen,” which was as twisty as it was exciting.
In this story, we met a man named Dr. Simeon who was using a giant snow globe called The Great Intelligence to manipulate snow in hopes of wiping out all the humans of the world and replacing them with ice creatures. The bigger issue here, though, wasn’t stopping the nefarious act — it was getting the Doctor to participate in the world-saving. READ FULL STORY
EARLIER: Gossip Girl has been a long, lovely, lascivious road — and it all comes to an end tonight.
After six seasons, the series that taught us about fashion, friends, and fake smiles will retire like an out-of-season handbag, but I beg you not to ruin your mascara with tears. (Also, tears are for the weak.) Instead, let us celebrate the morally reprehensible journey we’ve just taken and toast our frenemies from the Upper East Side.
I invite you to use this space to discuss the show’s series finale. At some point this evening — after your friendly Gossip recapper rediscovers the will to live in a world without the likes of Blair, Chuck, Serena, Dan…I guess Nate, too — this post will be updated to include a full recap of the action.
