It's been said that we are in the golden age of television because of the sheer volume, variety and availability of programming on broadcast networks, cable and streaming services. And yet, TV fans still must suffer through the stress of waiting for their favorite shows to be renewed and the consequent gut-punch of grief when they aren't.
Thanks to social media, fans have a direct line to show’s creators, writers and stars, and fans are fighting back.
As it usually does, Monday's Jane The Virgin aired a brilliant and soul-crushing piece of television that was as exquisite as it was devastating. "Chapter Fifty-Four" saw all of the characters embarking on game-changing journeys and one unexpectedly die.
Thanks to Andy Cohen, Bravo has created some of the most decadent reality TV moments in the genre’s history. Who can forget the ‘Who Gon' Check me Boo?’ greatness from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the brutally of the Richards’ sisters limo fight or the ‘Scary Island’ episodes from The Real Housewives of New York that proved that truth is always more terrifying than fiction?
There’s another priceless gem to add to Bravo's treasure trove of entertainment: the dueling marriage conferences on Married To Medicine.
Here's all the tea about how this priceless event came to be...
It’s not hard to fall in love with Supernatural. From its game-changing combination of macabre humor, gut-wrenching feels, ride-or-die bromance, classic horror, and dashing leads, there are a lot of reasons why The CW’s sci-fi show about two monster-hunting brothers saving people is the longest drama in WB and The CW’s history--250 of them to be exact.
Supernatural roared into 2017 celebrating its landmark 250th episode, reminding everyone why you don’t mess with the Winchesters.
Has the world missed Sam and Dean Winchester in the tedious weeks since Supernatural’s fall finale? According to the ominous new Supernatural promo, the answer is an emphatic yes.
Even Crowley, the King of Hell, admits, “Every Armageddon, every end of days...the Winchesters stopped it. Like it or not, they’re an asset we can’t afford to lose.”
While Hollywood prepare to dole out trophies to a lucky fraction of television’s best and brightest at tonight's 74th Annual Golden Globes, The CW also handed out their own prizes in the form of early renewals at their winter press tour for the 2017-18 season.
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.
If you’re a diehard fan of Gilmore Girls, you’ve probably already devoured the Netflix reboot, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, faster than the Lorelalis can polish off a plate of a tater tot tacos. You’ve scoured each of the four parts—one for each season—for callbacks to the original show, and laughed or fast-forwarded through the tedious and needlessly long minutes of the Stars Hollow Musical while wishing that time had been given to plump up Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) or Dean’s (Jared Padalecki’s) cameos. And you’ve ranted, raved and/or fretted over the final four words which I will not spoil here.
I went into the viewing dreading the inevitable walk down Ex-Boyfriend Lane, because all of Rory’s past suitors—yes, even Dean—were several kinds of problematic. Except this time, through the sobering and horrific prism of 2016, they weren’t. It was Rory who was 57 flavors of insufferable, entitled, and selfish. And I couldn't help but wonder: Is Rory Gilmore a terrible person?
