Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 10 – This is the End?

After last week’s episode of Fargo, I had to wonder how many bodies were left to massacre. The finale didn’t pack a bloody punch, but there was a lot left to ponder. Ready for the Fargo finale? Okay then, let’s get to it! • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 | Episode 9   “Palindrome” opens up on a lot of dead bodies, specifically those belonging to the Gerhardt family.

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 9 – Motel Hell

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 9 – Motel Hell

Last week on Fargo, we had one of the best installments of the whole darn season. So many characters were missing, but the entire episode was just awesome. The more I think about all of those exchanges between Peggy (Kirsten Dunst) and Dodd (Jeffrey Donovan), the more I realize last week had some of my favorite moments of this season — and the entire series in general. • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 This one was certainly a doozy … Continue reading

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 8 – Cabin Fever

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 8 – Cabin Fever

After last week’s killing spree, Fargo is stepping back a bit. Remember all of the unanswered questions from episode 6? This week’s installment tackles some of those — and leaves a few new ones lingering as well. • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 | Episode 7 That said, “Loplop” opened exactly where I wanted it to — back in the Blumquists’ basement. I wasn’t looking to see if Peggy (Kirsten Dunst) had stashed the June 1975 issue of Glamour within those monstrous piles, but … Continue reading

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 7 – Poking the Bear

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 7 – Poking the Bear

At the end of last week’s episode of Fargo, we were left with so many outstanding questions. Was Dodd (Jeffrey Donovan) dead? Was Floyd (Jean Smart) dead? Someone must have been dead! If you think a lot went down in that episode, sit down and get ready for an action-packed follow-up. • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 The writers managed to redeem last week’s low body count in the first few minutes of “Did you do this? No, you did it!” It actually reminded … Continue reading

Recap: Blindspot Season 1, Episode 10 – Bizarre Love Triangle

Last week’s episode of Blindspot gave us a lot to process. This time around, things get so intense, you may need multiple weeks to decipher the whole thing. Well, you’ll get them anyway — it’s the mid-season finale, people! Let’s get to it. • BLINDSPOT recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 | Episode 9 This week’s episode, “Evil Handmade Instrument,” starts with a shot of Patterson (Ashley Johnson) sitting with the FBI shrink. She’s talking about David (Joe Dinicol), saying that it … Continue reading

Tally ho! Imagination runs wild with “Nature Cat” on PBS Kids

Nature Cat

Brothers David and Adam Rudman have long worked on Sesame Street (David is Cookie Monster’s puppeteer and Adam is a writer), and they’ve created Nature Cat, an animated kids series for PBS inspired by their own adventures playing outside as kids. “We wanted to do Looney Tunes with a nature curriculum,” David says. “And we felt like that’s a great way to get kids interested in going outside and inspired to go out in nature.” Nature Cat (premiering Nov. 25 on PBS; check local listings) is about an exuberant housecat who goes outside with his animal pals to explore the outdoors … Continue reading

Supergirl Season 1 Episode 4 Recap: Livewire

Supergirl Season 1 Episode 4 Recap: Livewire

The Thanksgiving episode of “Supergirl” aired a week early after the one originally scheduled this week was pulled out of respect to the victims of the terrorist attack in Paris. Dr. Eliza Danvers comes to town, and she isn’t happy about Kara coming out in the public eye as Supergirl. The mom blames the older daughter Alex for this. It wouldn’t be a holiday without some family drama, even ones involving a superhero and undercover agent. A flashback shows Kara as a young girl testing out her flying powers with Alex reluctantly joining her. Later, the parents catch them when … Continue reading

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 6 – A Shocking Development

Recap: Fargo Season 2, Episode 6 - A Shocking Development

At the end of last week’s episode of Fargo, we knew what was coming. Even Ed (Jesse Plemons) and Peggy (Kirsten Dunst) knew what was coming. It was the police, looking for Ed after a guy rose up from the ashes of Bud’s Butcher Shop with a meat cleaver buried in his head. • FARGO Season 2 recaps: Episode 1 | Epsiode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 So really, it’s no surprise that “Rhinoceros” kicks off with Ed getting arrested. Peggy doesn’t seem too happy about it, which makes sense. All of this is 100-percent … Continue reading

Recap: Blindspot Season 1, Episode 9 – To Kill a Character

Blindspot fans: Remember when I said I wanted to see more of a certain character? Well, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. In this week’s episode, one of my favs shows up briefly and it’s not a good visit. I’m guessing we won’t be seeing him again for a while. He’s not the only special guest star that’s losing access to the craft services, though. Read on for this week’s recap! • BLINDSPOT recaps: Episode 1 | Episode 2 | Episode 3 | Episode 4 | Episode 5 | Episode 6 | Episode 7 | Episode 8 This … Continue reading

AMC’s genre-bending “Into the Badlands” lives by the sword

Into the Badlands The Widow

It’s hard to pin a label on AMC’s new six-part action drama series Into the Badlands, premiering Sunday, Nov. 15, at 10pm ET/PT. It has the dystopian future politics of The Hunger Games. It has the antiheroes of Westerns like The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It has the warrior’s spiritual journey of Kung Fu. It has themes of family bloodlines and ambition like in Game of Thrones or Shakespeare’s history plays. It has the moral codes of classic samurai films, and fight sequences reminiscent of The Matrix and Hong Kong martial arts movies. Into the Badlands fuses together … Continue reading
