From the passing of beloved celebrities like Prince, David Bowie, George Michael and most recently Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds to the surreal and possibly rigged election of the Evil Cheeto, 2016 has been one of the most trying and tragic years in recent memory. They say truth is stranger than fiction, so it's fitting that this hurricane of crap has descended upon our favorite fictional characters, too.
Whether, a particularly harrowing plot, bad writing or just plain old character neglect, here are 7 characters from Grey's Anatomy, This Is Us, Supernatural and more who deserve better in 2017...
If all you wanted for Christmas is a sneak peek of next year's episode of The CW's The Flash, you may want to re-think your life choices, because it. is. terrible. The new and intense promo (below) for the January 24 episode of The Flash finds Barry (Grant Gustin) telling his beautiful bae, Iris, that she will be murdered by the villian Savitar, and vowing to prevent it.
Here's the razor-thin silver lining on the heartbreaking teaser that would make the other, jollier guy in a red suit cry: Team Flash will rally around Iris (Candice Patton) and put their nerd brains and badass meta-human powers to work in order to save the woman who has truly grown to become their heart and soul.
WestAllen fans may notice the blink-and-you-miss-it glimpse of Barry and Iris sleeping in the same bed as the couple is now living in sin. There are worse ways to go, am I right?
Watch the promo below and dump your feels in the comments section.
On Thursday, Fox's stellar baseball drama, Pitch, closed out its first season after just 10 episodes. I've praised the show so much throughout its frustratingly short run that I'm out of ways to originally show my love.
Since this show ended its rookie season with nary a word from the network regarding season 2 or the dreaded C-word, I'm actually angry that Fox is betraying yet another quality show led by a black woman (See Sleepy Hollow and Minority Report).
Frankly, I'm tired of prettying up why this show is so important for television and the fans who have come to worship it. Here's the bottomline: Fox would be fucking stupid not to renew Pitch. Here are the 4 biggest reasons why this show desperately needs a second season.
