Masters of Sex. 3×01. ‘Parliament of Owls’: Well, this is awkward.

While it’s certainly true that Masters of Sex has never shied away from very awkward and uncomfortable situations, this season opener feels distinctly icky. Not only do we flash forward four years into the future with no warning, (one of my most hated storytelling devices) we also get treated to a super weird family vacation. […]

Episode 401

House of Lies 4×10 ‘Prasie Money! Hallowed Be Thy Name’: “We have burger lettuce.”

Marty and his gang are back in hot water this week as a deal that’s slated to go through gets the kibosh from Denna. The ugly Clyde-Doug-Kelsey love triangle comes back into focus as well, hopefully for the last time. Plus, Roscoe’s dance with the devil finally catches up with him. Sarah S. Sarah S. […]


House of Lies 4×09 ‘We’re Going to Build a Mothership and Rule the Universe’

Hey there guys! So what’s happening in the super messed up world of Marty Kaan this week? Well, despite having sold 60% of his company to Denna, his new squeeze (?), everything seems to be coming up roses. Business is booming, Gage Motors and Ellis Hightower seem to be leaving well alone (we’ll see how […]

Episode 406

House of Lies 4×08 ‘He Didn’t Mean That, Natalie Portman’: Fire in the hole.

Marty and his associates gear up for some serious revenge against Ellis Hightower this week. After last week’s episode where tensions were running very high, Marty and his team scramble to find an ace and get back the edge in their fight against thieving and terrible Ellis Hightower. There’s also a new love triangle forming […]


House of Lies 4×06 ‘Trust Me, I’m Getting Plenty of Erections’: Jeannie’s gotta go.

Aaaaand here we go again with the Marty back in prison flashbacks. Just as I predicted, we get to see a lot more of Marty as a convict. Specifically we get to see Roscoe and Marty’s relationship deteriorate even further as well as his relationship with Jeannie who may be leaving for a new start […]


House of Lies 4×05 ‘The Urge to Save Humanity is Almost Always a False Front for the Urge to Rule’

Hey there pilgrims! Marty and the gang are back and they’re still trying to court a partnership between Ellis Hightower and Maya. Everyone attends a fancy garden party/silent auction for Maya’s charity, One Child One Spirit, to try and pretend that everyone is getting along famously but of course everything comes crashing down around them. […]


House of Lies 04×04 ‘We Can Always Just Overwhelm the Vagus Nerve with Another Sensation’

Heyo guys! Ready for another hilarious installment of House of Lies? Cause I sure am! I know what you’re thinking, with an episode title that long, what can these fools be up to this episode? Well Marty is working on getting Ellis Hightower to play ball, which is slowly becoming a freakishly huge nightmare. Clyde […]


House of Lies 04×03 ‘Entropy is Contagious’: Don’t drink and text.

This week on House of Lies, Marty is still having an enormous amounts of personal and professional problems. Doug and Sarah are still trying to conceive, and she’s getting quite creepy about it. Clyde is having a personality crisis because he’s a jerk. Jeannie and Marty are still at odds over how to handle their […]


House of Lies 04×02 ‘I’m a Mother***king Scorpion, That’s Why.’: Preemptive child services

Wow, Showtime sure is pushing out these new episodes quickly. With little to no warning either. I wonder what’s up. Anyway, this season started off strong, let’s hope the show keeps it that way. Marty is still trying to rebuild the company that Jeannie wrecked while he was away. We also get some more flashbacks […]


House of Lies 04×01 ‘Episode 1′: No more Mr. Nice Guy.

I was quite surprised to see that Showtime released several premieres early this week, including House of Lies. If you’ve never seen it, the show centers around Marty Khan (DON CHEADLE) who runs a Management Consulting firm that basically cons every person they come across. The show also focuses on his associates, Jeanie Van Der […]


Homeland 4×12 ‘Long Time Coming’: The lying king.

Here we are at the season four finale of Homeland and there’s still so many questions to be answered. What will happen to the rat Dennis Boyd? Is Quinn ever going to stop going rogue? Does Carrie return to the states for her father’s funeral? How is Dar-Adal involved in Pakistani terrorist Haqqani’s plans? Will […]


Homeland 4×11 ‘Krieg Nicht Lieb’: Look who’s in the car.

After last week’s craziness who knows what the last two episodes of this season will hold. Will Quinn survive? Will Carrie ever follow a direct order? What is Saul going to do back in the states? Will Haqqani ever be stopped? Can we trust anyone left in Pakistan? Obviously there’s a lot of unanswered questions […]


Homeland 4×10 ’13 Hours in Islamabad”: All is lost.

After the last episode’s explosive finale (pun intended) we’re wondering whether or not Saul and Carrie have managed to survive the blast unscathed. I’m guessing the two front passengers won’t be as lucky. Now that Haqqani has access to the embassy will total chaos reign supreme? Looks like all hell is going to break loose […]


Homeland 4×09 ‘There’s Something Else Going On’: Kaboom

The biggest question every fan of Homeland is asking: Will Saul Berenson make it through this season alive? Well, I’m still not sure. He’s been through the ringer before but never quite like this. Carrie’s mission is quickly going down in flames and she’s having to salvage it at every turn while dragging the rest […]


Homeland 4×08 ‘Halfway to a Donut’: Nothing good can come of this

After last week’s shocking episode I didn’t think this week would be able to top it but it definitely did. This suspense was high and there was a lot more on the line. Saul is still being held in captivity by Haqqani. The American government is still trying to reach an agreement with the Pakistani […]


Homeland 4×07 ‘Redux’: UGH NO.

After last week’s catastrophic events where are our heroes? Well Carrie is on the move to rescue Saul who’s still being held prisoner by Haqqani and she’s starting to unravel. Deputy Director Lockhart comes to Islamabad to try to sort this mess out. Quinn and Fara are scrambling to make up for lost time. There’s […]


Homeland 4×06 ‘From A to B and Back Again’: Carrie, you in danger girl.

Looks like Carrie’s mission is back up and running after so many false starts. Quinn and Fara are both giving Carrie some serious side eyes and attitude. Aayan is revealing much more than he should be comfortable with. Dennis Boyd is becoming quite the “spook” at an alarming rate I must say. Things just sort […]

Homeland - Episode 4.05 - About a Boy - Promotional Photos

Homeland 4×05 ‘About a Boy’: A tall order

This week, Carrie is scrambling to keep her flighty asset under control while also having unrealistic expectations about what he’s ready to share. Quinn is still a lovelorn puppy who’s uncontrollable emotions are starting to get a little annoying. Fara is a reluctant spy and Saul has the rookie blues. I’ve read a lot of […]


Homeland 4×04 ‘Iron In the Fire’: “This is how we begin.”

Alright guys, I know this season of Homeland is well under way, so I’m going to recap a little. I’ll go over the first three episodes briefly and mix in my review of this episode. My first impression of this season is very positive, and I’m excited with the direction the show is taking. With […]

Ray Donovan 2×04 ‘S U C K’: That’s an interestingly appropriate word, honey

I don’t know about you guys, but I found this fourth episode of Ray Donovan to be the best one of the season so far. While episode two and – to a lesser extent – episode three felt more like development episodes, ‘S U C K’ was a truly juicy, absorbing “middle-of-the-season” quality episode. It […]
