  • ‘The River: The Experiment’ – Recap

    Posted Wednesday, March 14th, 2012 01:00 pm GMT -4

    The Magus team is terrorized by a cannibalistic entity while exploring an abandoned research facility for clues that Dr. Cole might still be alive. Perhaps most interesting this week though is that Kurt’s role as security chief puts his personal safety at great risk. The episode opens 7 months ago in Chicago, with a woman […]

    Posted Tuesday, March 13th, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    Clarence Montgomery was the only innocent man imprisoned at the Rock. Now, he’s come back to the present day … except this time he’s not innocent. Present: A handsome black man tours the room at a swanky party in a high-end restaurant. He and a white woman catch each other’s eyes across the room. She […]

  • ‘Merlin: A Herald Of The New Age’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, March 10th, 2012 08:00 pm GMT -4

    Arthur and his knights are out in the forest, when the king notices someone through the trees. They discover a shrine to a restless spirit, a place with clothing hung all around a clearing. Merlin’s freaked out more than a little–Gaius says places like this are all cursed. Then a raven flies out, and Leon […]

  • ‘Awake: The Little Guy’ – Recap

    Posted Friday, March 9th, 2012 04:00 pm GMT -4

    Brief refresher before I launch into this week’s recap … each world is marked by the name of the person who is alive in that world. So, Hannah means Britten’s wife is alive, and Rex means the son is alive. Also: I don’t know if I can watch Jason Isaacs in anything without seeing him as Lucius […]

  • ‘The River: Doctor Emmet Cole’ – Recap

    Posted Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    It’s all about Emmet this week, as we finally get to see the last recorded footage of his journey through the jungle of the Boiuna. Oh, and about Lena too, because she has a dangerous secret that she’s going to share with a member of the crew… and not a person you might expect either. […]

The Ames Bros. Present: The episode opens with Edward “Pinky” Ames on a tour […]

  • ‘Merlin: Lancelot Du Lac’ – Recap

    Posted Sunday, March 4th, 2012 12:00 pm GMT -4

    The episode opens with Agravaine attending Arthur late at night. Merlin’s there too, cleaning some dishes while the others talk. Arthur tells his uncle that he’s made a decision he doesn’t think Agravaine will like–he plans to make Gwen the queen of Camelot. Agravaine tries to dissuade him from the move, but Arthur’s hearing none […]

  • ‘Awake: Pilot’ – Recap

    Posted Friday, March 2nd, 2012 03:00 pm GMT -4

    The premise behind ‘Awake,’ Jason Isaacs’ new show on NBC, is that a car accident causes Detective Michael Britten to begin living two parallel lives. In one, his wife Hannah survived the accident but his son Rex died. In the other, Rex lived and Hannah died. He has different partners in each world, different cases […]

  • ‘The River: Peaches’ – Recap

    Posted Wednesday, February 29th, 2012 09:17 pm GMT -4

    This week is easily the scariest episode since Marbeley — those dolls hanging in the trees were OMG creepy — and this week has much better scares than the drowned girl in that installment. Day 22 at night and we open with Jonas, Lena, Tess and Lincoln looking at a map of the river. Jonas […]

  • ‘Merlin: Lamia’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, February 25th, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    The idyllic night scene of the opening village is shattered when a scream rends the air. The elder doesn’t find anything until he opens a door and a catatonic man falls on top of him. Something moves out in the darkness, and the terrified elder shouts a challenge. Umm … bad idea methinks. The elder’s […]

  • ‘The River: A Better Man’ – Recap

    Posted Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    The fourth episode begins with film from 5 to 7 months ago aboard the Magus. Emmet and his crew are chopping vines off the ship, which are preventing them from going anywhere. I’ve got the feeling these are the vines we found the Magus trapped in before. Emmet chops away all the vines, only to […]

  • ‘Alcatraz: Johnny McKee’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, February 21st, 2012 06:00 pm GMT -4

    The prisoner eluding our heroes this week is Johnny McKee, a killer with a background in chemistry and a penchant for cyanide. He’s also got a strong revenge impulse when it comes to bullies. Kind of relatable for a lot of folks, but he’s not a nice person. (Yes goes without saying.) Present Day Beauregard […]

  • ‘Merlin: The Secret Sharer’ – Recap

    Posted Saturday, February 18th, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    This week starts off with Agravaine watching over a recuperating Morgana. She comes to, and tells him that Emrys was the one who injured her. He also knows all their plans, which does not bode well for their goals. Agravaine figures out Gaius is telling Emrys all their plans; Morgana says this is a good […]

  • ‘The River: Los Ciegos’ – Recap

    Posted Wednesday, February 15th, 2012 02:00 pm GMT -4

    After a brief recap of past events, the episode opens with more footage from “The Undiscovered Country.” This time, Emmet’s on camera explaining about sharks killing each other in the womb. After a cut, Clark comes on and makes a joke about fratricide, Tess reminds Emmet they’re making a family show, and Emmet replies that […]

  • ‘Alcatraz: Paxton Petty’ – Recap

    Posted Tuesday, February 14th, 2012 09:00 pm GMT -4

    The prisoner-of-the-week this time around is a Korean War vet by the name of Paxton Petty, who has the nasty habit of setting landmines in populated areas. There were four of them in the early 1960s, but only three ever went off. I’m going to try a different tactic with this recap, by the way. […]
