Dance Moms episode 26 recap: “How” Does This Happen?

The Pitt Crew and, of course, its loyal Dance Moms Nation, is on its way to Nationals! With only a few weeks left, it’s going to be an uphill battle for our girls to earn themselves spots in that final competition. Last week, one select team member, Ava, was weeded out while Jade earned herself brownie points with Abby by sticking with the Pitt Crew. This week, 9-year-old Tea will compete with the Elite Team to prove her chops. Things have already gone crazy before pyramid even starts. After a brush in with our previously departed CWAY, Gia is able […]

Dance Moms Season 4 episode 25 recap: Rain on Me (And My Team)

Welcome back Dance Moms Nation! Time for our Tuesday meet up and the eternally entertaining antics of the Abby Lee Dance Company. Last week we saw Chloe and Jade go head-to-head for the Junior division title only for Chloe to land in sixth and Jade’s dance teacher mother, Loree, to seriously consider leaving the ALDC over her daughter’s third place. Despite last week’s drama, Jade and Loree both appear for pyramid and remain with the Pitt Crew, which displeases the returning Select Team. Yes, the infamous Select Team has returned to spice up the mid-season and pave the way to […]

The Last Ship Season 1 finale recap: The Dog Returns

It’s season finale time in the plague-ridden world of The Last Ship. The penultimate episode saw Dr. Rachel Scott officially test the vaccine on something other than monkeys and although it didn’t go well at first, the end result was something that not only inoculated the test subjects, but cured them of the infection entirely. It also tracked the progress of the Chandler family and we saw Captain Tom’s wife unceremoniously infect her entire family, apparently not recognizing the symptoms of the disease that has killed everyone they once knew. That leaves this final episode with the task of mass […]

Dance Moms Season 4 episode 24 recap: I’ve got the Bleus

Welcome back, Dance Moms Nation! Who’s glad CWAY CWAY is absent, come this week’s pyramid? It’s amazing how much faster things get done when no one is giving Abby camera-grabbing sass. This week’s Select Team crossover is Jade and her mom Loree, who Abby says is elegant and a successful dance studio owner in her own right. The pyramid itself reveals no new surprises. Mack Z rides the middle and Abby promises to push her this week. Maddie comes in second since she was gone part of last week but still perfect when she finally did show up, and Kendall […]

The Last Ship Episode 9 recap: Who wants to do shots!? … Nobody?

It’s been a long road as we head into episode 9, fellow fans of TNT’s The Last Ship. The intrepid crew of the Nathan James has faced a worldwide pandemic and the realization that they’re mankind’s last hope, plus Al Qaeda agents, crazy former drug lords, and a dogged Russian destroyer whose sole purpose in the apocalypse was to hunt them down. They accomplished all this while running on minimal food and fuel and dealing with the reality that most of their loved ones are probably dead. In last week’s episode our hearty crew cured a virus, saved a family, […]

Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 23 recap: Whose gonna be Maddie when Maddie ain’t around?

What’s up, Dance Moms Nation? Have you been paying attention to the almighty ALDC? If you have, you’ll know that the select team beat our Pitt Crew in the first episode of this half of Season 4, but they couldn’t be bothered for a third appearance the next week. You’ll also know that Christy-with-a-Y has stuck around longer than anyone wanted and has trolled her way through everyone’s patience with her bad attitude and the occasional fist fight. You should also know that Mackenzie is now Mack Z and had a hit summer single and yes, that was Maddie featured […]

The Last Ship Episode 8 recap: Spies, Lies, and Manly Cries

Oh dear, oh dear! It’s been a long week, so let’s jog our memories, shall we? When last the audience left the Nathan James it had just picked up a Jamaican girl named Patrice (who is immune to the virus and possibly humanities’ last hope). In the process they lost Captain Chandler and Tex, who were picked up by the Russians, although the crew has no way of knowing that for sure. The Russians have a Norwegian scientist with a secret remedy to the virus but still need Dr. Scott to complete a cure. Now that they have real leverage […]

Dance Moms recap Season 4 episode 22: Kiss this

Welcome back, Dance Moms nation. Did everyone recover from all the fist-flailing action from last week? As our girls line up for this week’s pyramid, it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that the select team is once again absent from the proceedings. It’s hard to get so many wannabe starlets scheduled for practices the same week. And just think about what a hotel room that fits their mothers’ egos must cost! Unfortunately, someone has to keep the drama going now that the moms have spent a week bonding over their rage at Abby Lee, so Sarah and her mom, […]

The Last Ship Episode 7 recap: Wherefore Art Thou, Captain?

If you thought last week’s attempt at a bottle episode lacked network TV violence, The Last Ship has  it covered in episode 7! We open on a sweet, unexplained, high seas gun battle between two of the Nathan James’s boats and mysterious Russian boat. Somebody in a TV show finally points out how hard it is to shoot a gun in a moving vehicle and the crew (including Tex and Commander Chandler) call for backup in the form of an armed helicopter. The Blackhawk successfully drives off the Russians but the Commander’s boat is damaged and sinking, forcing them to […]
