The adrenaline ante has been so upped on episodic dramas as to somewhat devalue the "shocker" label. So credit the producers of "The Good Wife" with delivering a genuine jolt in Sunday's episode, precisely because the CBS series doesn't rely on over-the-...

First off, wow. These past couple episodes have really been the best from this half of the season. At first, we were kind of meandering in Olitz drama, and it was getting kind of stale, because most of us kinda hate Fitz and hate Olivia when she was...

Maryland-made "House of Cards" was one of several entertainment series to win a Peabody Award Wednesday.
"By releasing an entire season of episodes at once, Netflix took binge viewing to a new level and obliterated the idea that a hit TV show needs a...

One thought kept crossing my mind and timeline last night: "Jake really is Command."
We start off the episode with a chopped monologue from Jake about what it means to be Command, and how it requires you to have no ties and no family. This is going to...

When I checked the episode guide and saw that last night’s episode was titled “YOLO,” I knew that things were going to get insane. And they did, quickly.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year: check your guest list twice, deck your halls and prepare to celebrate straight through to the New Year.
Whatever your holiday traditions — Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Las Posadas — it's the...

A couple of disturbing images are floating around in my head after last night’s episode, but before we get into all of that, let’s pick up at last week’s cliffhanger. Olivia’s mom is alive, which isn’t the biggest surprise in...

If you don't think TV is in the midst of revolutionary change, go to Amazon.com this weekend and instead of buying a book or baby food, take a look at the online giant's original production of "Alpha House."

Always a team player, Mellie is in the middle of shooting a behind-the-scenes look at the East Wing, to rehab her image. Basically, she has to drone on about curating the White House’s art, etc, poor thing.
Flashback to 15 years ago in Santa...

Olivia’s life isn’t finished imploding, which is both entertaining and frustrating to watch. I think half of the joy of watching “Scandal” is being able to route for Olivia as she ruthlessly ensures the best outcome for her client....

So here’s the thing: "Scandal” won’t be returning until Feb. 27. The news came out that they were cutting the season short a few episodes -- most likely due to Kerry Washington’s pregnancy (CONGRATS!). But that doesn’t change...

We pick things up at Olivia’s, where a disappointed Jake is packing up to go home. Olivia’s safer if he’s not there. She says Fitz will protect her, but Jake scoffs. Her father is Command and Fitz can’t defend her, because he...
