‘RHOBH’ Recap: Brandi Whines About Being Called a ‘Bully’ While Spread Eagle

“Oh, this is bloody child’s play,” Carlton exclaimed with disdain at the luncheon from bloody hell. Yup.

Is it the message board poster in this week’s case who proclaims himself “gangsta”? Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Cary stole numerous Lockhart-Gardner clients, which gives them some street cred.

‘Scandal’: The President Has Serious Game

This week’s “Scandal” showed that, like the rest of us, Olivia Pope has seen “The Notebook.” It also highlights one of the show’s dominant themes: the fantasy of an idealized “Cosby Show” domesticity, which none of the characters have ever achieved. Every time one of them gets close, he or she consciously or unconsciously does […]

‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Thanks for Nothing

This week’s episode, “Somebody That I Used to Know” was a typical “Grey’s Anatomy” holiday: Nobody wants to celebrate, half the characters are miserable about their romantic choices and everyone is overworked. Miranda may be the only one with an actual mental illness, but everyone could use therapy. [xfinity-record-button id=”5191720111929016112″ program_type=”series”] Miranda Breaks Down Ben […]

‘RHOBH’ Recap: Carlton Bewitches Her Guests, Kyle Eats Among Frenemies

“There are a couple witches in our group, but Carlton isn’t one of them,” so said Lisa on Monday night’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” But depending on whom you asked, they could all be stirring the cauldron—and based on their explicit lunchtime discussions—adding a slew of crazy ingredients.

‘The Voice’ Recap: The Top 10 Look to Stay Alive

Ahh, “moments,” those storied, ineffable memories that are created from time to time on TV music competitions, when someone just nails a song so wonderfully it actually sounds like it could have been his or her own. Everybody wants to have a moment, but not everyone gets one—especially when they’re trying too hard. That’s exactly […]
