Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: 0-8-4

By Zan Romanoff

October 2, 2013 | 5:58 pm

The thing about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. so far is that it appears to be approximately fifteen minutes of a great show swaddled in 30 minutes of an extremely mediocre one. Last night there... read on

  • ‘Breaking Bad’ finale: Baby blue drugs, baby blue hugs

    By Melissa Weller

    October 1, 2013 | 4:15 pm

    As promised, digesting the conclusion of this epic tale took a while.

    Like many other millions, I became addicted to the death grips on my stomach rarely, if ever, felt from a television series. As the passing weeks drew the finale closer and closer, a new level of scorching... read on

  • Sleepy Hollow Recap: For the Triumph of Evil

    By Zan Romanoff

    October 1, 2013 | 1:51 pm

    Sleepy Hollow was doing all right for itself. The second episode didn't give us much more than the info-dump pilot did in terms of narrative advancement but it was just as fast-paced and action oriented, developing the world of onscreen Sleepy Hollow in thoughtful, specific detail.... read on

  • Hello Ladies Recap: Pilot

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 30, 2013 | 1:01 pm

    I'll admit that I did not go into Hello Ladies with an open mind. I know that Stephen Merchant, who co-created the series and stars in it as sad-sack singleton Stuart, is supposed to be a funny man, and he was one of the minds behind the UK Office, so clearly he's got a decent... read on

  • Recap: I Fall to Pieces

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 26, 2013 | 9:11 am

    When last we left Nashville the show had descended into so much slippery soapiness: Gunnar had confessed his musical crimes to his producer and tried to propose to his pissed-off girlfriend, Scarlett, to mend their broken relationship, Juliette's mother had essentially committed... read on

  • Joss Whedon brings big action to the small screen

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 25, 2013 | 3:52 pm

    Joss Whedon has not always done well on network television. Sure, Buffy the Vampire Slayer got seven seasons and the accolades and Emmys it so richly deserved, but Firefly lasted a mere 14 episodes (thank god for the movie follow-up, Serenity) and Dollhouse eaked out a second... read on

  • Emmys tell bleak tale of broadcast TV

    By Melissa Weller

    September 24, 2013 | 5:52 pm

    So the Emmys were on Sunday, and with it no shortage of Neiling, Breaking and flopped attempts at Modernizing. Not least of which was characterized by the slap-happy host jabbing “our younger audience” by clarifying that television is “the thing you watch on your phones.” Cute?... read on

  • How I Met Your Mother Recap: The Locket & Coming Back

    By Zan Romanoff

    September 24, 2013 | 3:17 pm

    I don't think there are many people who would argue with the assertion that How I Met Your Mother has been on the air too long. Its nine seasons have stretched once-funny bits into gratingly overwrought irritations, and the show's weaker elements (Barney Stinson's abject misogyny,... read on
