After the last two episodes of "American Horror Story: Coven" nearly lulled me into a coma (except for the always-stellar work of the veteran cast), finally, finally, everything is starting to make sense.
Reunions. Confessions. Rachel Skarsten's return. Answers about Lauren's past. And most importantly -- THE SUCCUBUS HAS CHOSEN A SIDE!
"Arrow" is one of the best-directed shows on TV.
"How I Met Your Mother" pulled some of its old favorite tropes out of the closet for last night's episode, which did not end in a laser tag rehearsal dinner.
Sunday's midseason 4 finale gave us the tide-turning battle we were expecting at the end of season 3, but this time each side had even more to lose.
What's the solution to the CBC dilemma? Maybe what needs to be done is that the CBC, which has mutated over time into a multi-platform mega corporation, should be divided into semi-autonomous parts. By breaking the CBC into smaller, tighter organizations (but still associated with the whole) it might actually eliminate a lot of bureaucracy.
According to showrunner Alex Gansa, "Good Night" was meant to serve as a transition to the true action that will appear in the last two episodes of "Homeland."

Preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV is the first step toward achieving an AIDS-free generation.

For 60 years the mother corp has been permitted to blow millions of tax dollars providing the nation with this redundant subsidized "service" anyway, a more-than-half-century absurdity whose bluff is only now being called. Far from being a stirring symbol of CBC success, Hockey Night in Canada has long been the single most wasteful monument to the network's fundamentally confused mandate.
What may have really hurt the show this season was the new voting format, which was forced to combine the public's votes from the previous week's dances with the judges' scores from the current week.
It seems like a paradox, but the much-ballyhooed small-screen "golden age" may actually be terrible for TV. Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones and Homeland are all best watched in frantic orgies of immobility. And the best way to acquire these programs for "binge viewing" isn't cable.
For the last two episodes, The Governor's storyline has been in fast-forward while the prison's is on pause.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that the chief pleasure for a British audience watching a historical drama serial lies in gleefully pouncing upon its errors and inaccuracies.
When show creator Craig Thomas announced that an entire episode of 'HIMYM' would rhyme, the Internet unleashed a chorus of hate. Fans cried that the show "jumped the shark" or that the writers had run out of ideas.
Following two weeks of being slammed with information and exposition, this was a really tight episode, with some great story progression. Plus, Bo is really back now!
