Mr. Robot was a thrilling experience because it touched on real-world issues and concerns in a way that felt visceral and grounded. And now, USA’s latest drama, Colony, seems to be pulling off the same trick—only for an alien invasion story.
In a previous Mr. Robot recap, I predicted Elliot Alderson will join Don Draper and Walter White as one of the iconic male antiheroes of 21st century TV. After last night’s season one finale, I think Elliot is also on track to becoming the definitive hacker in pop culture history. SPOILERS AHEAD.
Last season on Extant, Halle Berry starred as an astronaut who got inexplicably pregnant with a killer alien baby on a space solo mission and brought it back to Earth. In season two, the inexplicable plot points pile on, resulting in a guilty pleasure dripping with everything you love to hate about scifi.
The mermaids on Lost Girl just want to be where the people are, and steal the legs that the people have. Meanwhile Bo is having angsty memory drama with Rainer the Wanderer.
It was a grab bag of folklore on this week's Lost Girl — some of it brilliant, some of it laughably terrible. Odin's crows, Japanese puzzle boxes, Chinese fae, and even a biblical serpent/demon.
Do you like Quantum Leap-style time travel body-jumping stories? How about weird meta-threesomes? Werewolves? Boobs? Terrible French accents? Of course you do.
This week's Lost Girl was sort of a monster of the week, sort of getting the band back together, sort of softcore porn – all of which has me hoping the show has found its soul again.
The tale of the missing succubus drags on, Tamsin returns (sort of), and Dyson and Hale are on the case in this week's Lost Girl. It seems there's some double-crossery in the future, and surprise surprise, Vex is involved.
Lost Girl has returned! And oh what a delirious mess it continues to be, now with 100 percent more George Takei (and roughly the same amount of overacting).
After a couple of lackluster episodes starting off its final season, Futurama hits its stride. "T: The Terrestrial" features great lines, but more importantly, great tributes to classic science fiction.
So, clearly, this episode isn't about tablets, not at all. Which..hey...Sam has made his decision to stay on the road for now, and it's all in Kevin's hands unless Castiel circles back around with his piece of stone. So, in the meanwhile, let's to the family business? Spoilers after the jump.
There's an argument to be made that Castiel's discovery of free will was marked by his transition from the tool of the highest ranking angel in the room to the tool of the Winchesters. I'm not going to make it. Spoilers ensue.
Need a quick refresher on Game of Thrones in advance of the March 31st premiere of Season Three? Never fear, HBO has cut together this handy guide to the highlights of the Second Season, so you'll be up on your Starks, Greyjoys, Lannisters, Freys, and wildlings by the time we hear that glorious theme music once more.
Last night's Being Human episode tipped the scales with a little fantasy wish fulfillment, a new "big bad," and a general raise of excellence. Take note, Fall 2011's fantasy-laden programming: this is the supernatural soap opera we want.
Tonight's episode of The Walking Dead, "Guts," wasn't as pensive at the season premiere, but it offered up an enjoyable, panicked escape from Atlanta. We also learned that being a crazy white supremacist is an old habit that dies hard.
Oh, Smallville. Remember how you teased us with Darkseid and Lex Luthor's machinations from beyond the grave earlier this season? Well, that's all been swept under the rug. Friday's so-so episode, "Ambush," gave us a clichéd holiday from hell.
Last week's spooky Smallville was some insane amalgam of The Wicker Man, Robin Williams' Jack, and Tommy Wiseau's The Room. It combined country bumpkin human sacrifices with a creepy turbo-aging Lex Luthor with softcore erotica...with Superman!
The Frank Darabont-directed series premiere of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead debuted tonight on AMC. This opening episode was a solid addition to the undead canon, and the show makes an excellent case for adapting serialized comics for television.
Last night's Venture Bros. episode, "The Silent Partners," drove home that the show's title is increasingly becoming a misnomer. Who were the key players? Billy Quizboy, Brock, Monstroso, and the Pirate. Oh, and a robotic Hazzard boy. Good ol' RoboBo.
