Heads Up 'Sleepy Hollow' Fans, You're In For A Shock

If you've been watching Sleepy Hollow from the beginning, then you have loved the tale of the Headless Horsemen, Ichabod Crane and Abbie Mills. But admittedly, Season 2 has taken a sharp turn into even darker territory -- and the series' rabid fan base aren't happy.

You Will Be On The Edge Of Your Seats, Guaranteed

It's a powerful, compelling, exhausting hour -- one that definitely should not be missed. Because the note it ends on only paves the way for loads of drama for the rest of the season. You ready for it? Consider yourself warned.

'Empire' Review: Hip-Hop Family Drama Turns Network TV On Its Head

I was intrigued by 'Empire,' thanks to Fox cramming ads for it down our throats. I wasn't sure if it was going to be brilliant or trash TV -- I just knew either way I was in. So pressing play on the pilot, I was dubious at best. But good lawd! That wariness was quickly erased with each passing scene, because yes, 'Empire' is that good.

So Long, 'Republic Of Doyle,' It's Been A Great Ride

Aside from the cast and crew of the beloved six-season series, for many viewers the toughest character to say goodbye to won't be the GTO (though, admittedly, hearing the tires on Jake's car for the last time will be sad); rather, it's the city of St. John's, which has looked gorgeous in all its years, that might be missed most.

Introducing The Second 'Canada's Smartest Person'

The season wrap-up was a reminder of just how epic the last eight weeks have been on "Canada's Smartest Person." Thirty-two Canadians battled for the chance to lord it over friends, family and co-workers that they're the smartest person in the country.

'MasterChef Junior' Review: The Kids Just Keep Getting Better

There's something quite magical about 'Junior.' If you haven't watched before, you would just assume that there's no way this group of eight-to-12-year-olds could chop with the precision of a ninja, much less have the finesse to make a plate presentable. But they do. They really, really do.

'Constantine' Review: This Show Will Freak Your Freak

I have a few fears. I don't like birds, particularly flocks of them. Also eyes. 'Constantine' is a freaky-deaky eyeball extravaganza, which made it tough to watch. If you're cool with that kind of thing, then 'Constantine' is the show for you. If you're like me, why not join me from behind my couch cushion? That's where I'll be watching for the rest of the season.

U.K.'s Biggest New Drama (Sort Of) Comes To Canada

When I first heard Fox was remaking "Broadchurch," I immediately had my back up. The series that was rightfully touted as "Britain's biggest new drama since 'Downton Abbey'" lived up to all of its expectations, and then some. Could Fox really do the same with "Gracepoint"?

'Gotham' Review: About As Good As It Gets

'Gotham' is not the Batman tale most fans have grown to know and love because unlike other incarnations, this one doesn't feature the Dark Knight being all broody, saving the day. Anyone who loves a good origin series will love it, but even those who aren't interested in how things began will still sink their teeth into the drama.
