    'Mad Men' Going Out on Top? Not Necessarily | ARTICLE

    'Boardwalk Empire' Recap: King Creole | ARTICLE

    As someone who has been mad for Steve Buscemi going on 20 years now, it pains me to watch him go from consistent scene-stealer to a mere observer in his starring vehicle. This is a guy who...

    'True Blood' Season Finale Recap: Up in Flames | ARTICLE

    Great, after all that buildup about one of the principal characters not making it through the season, I still can't be certain if said character was Terry or Eric. In a deliberately ambiguous plot twist,...

    'True Blood' Recap: Walkin' on Sunshine | ARTICLE

    Rest in Peace, Terry Bellefleur. "Life Matters," the penultimate episode written by showrunner Brian Buckner, was a beautiful love letter to Bon Temps' fallen neighbor, and it all but confirmed that Terry was indeed the principal character whose...

    'True Blood' Recap: Heels Over Head | ARTICLE

    With two episodes left this season, there is still plenty of time for Sookie to either change her mind or, more likely, find a loophole that will keep her from becoming, as she called it, Warlow's "faerie-vampire...

    Q&A: 'True Blood' Actor Todd Lowe on Terry Bellefleur's Tragic Death | ARTICLE

    Any fair-weather viewer of True Blood knows that death is par for the course on the HBO supernatural drama. Over the past six seasons, we've bid both tearful and joyful farewells to characters like Adele Stackhouse,...

  • 'True Blood' Recap: Prison Blues

    'True Blood' Recap: Prison Blues | ARTICLE

    Jessica's faerie-blood high served as the perfect metaphor for this episode of True Blood. There was so much thrown at us from every angle (Sookie looking scrumptious in her pink bra and panties; a naked, prehistoric...

    'True Blood' Recap: Weird Science | ARTICLE

    "At Last" was more than just the title of Season Six's fourth episode – it was the collective sigh of relief exhaled by all fans (this recapper included) who have been wondering when the hell we'd get the...

    'True Blood' Recap: No Invitation? No Problem! | ARTICLE

    Someone needs to get Sookie Stackhouse back into the Bon Temps vampire fold stat before I fall into a permanent nap with True Blood. There were only two entertaining scenes in "You're No Good," and Sookie...

  • 'Mad Men' Finale Recap: The Long Goodbye

    'Mad Men' Finale Recap: The Long Goodbye | ARTICLE

    It's easy to get nostalgic whenever a season of Mad Men comes to a close, but knowing that only 13 episodes remain in the entire series, and by the end of "In Care Of," so many...

  • 'True Blood' Season Premiere Recap: Shaky Ground

    'True Blood' Season Premiere Recap: Shaky Ground | ARTICLE

    The decision to reduce the number of True Blood episodes from 12 to 10 this season made plenty of sense in theory (accommodating Anna Paquin's pregnancy, etc.), but I fear, judging from "Who Are You, Really?," that...

    Q&A: 'True Blood' Showrunner Brian Buckner Spills on Season Six | ARTICLE

    'Mad Men' Recap: The Vietnam Affair | ARTICLE

    There weren't any prominent pop tracks featured in this episode of Mad Men, but I would say that everyone's theme song for "Favors" was "Nowhere to Run." For Don and Sally, especially, the doorway metaphor...

    'Mad Men' Recap: Working Girl | ARTICLE

    'Mad Men' Recap: Only the Lonely | ARTICLE

    Ah, ex sex. To quote Samantha Jones, "Sex with an ex can be depressing. If it's good you can't get it anymore. If it's bad you just had sex with an ex." And that about sums up...
