The episode opens up two years ago at night in an industrial building. A couple of bad guys have a man tied up and are dangling him over a vat of hot, bubbling tar. The bound guy has money that the thugs want and if he doesn’t give it up, they will drop him into the tar below.

Fly Like a Girl: “Supergirl” – Episode 12 “Bizarro”

Last night’s episode opens up three months into the past. Maxwell Lord enters Lab 52 (a nice nod to the 52 universes in DC Comics). Inside he looks upon the unconscious girl we have seen in the past few episodes.

50:50? Why Super Bowl 50 Is Anything But a Toss-Up

This year’s NFL season has been anything but predictable. However, when it comes to Super Bowl 50 there will likely be only one result that would be truly surprising and that is a win for the Denver Broncos. That’s not to take anything away from Gary Kubiak’s team, but there are a lot of things that would […]

American Idol XV: Hollywood Week, Part 1

Over the 15 years Idol has graced our television sets, I’ve always wondered why the producers insist on keeping the group round as part of Hollywood Week. It’s painful to watch contestants stay up all night, struggle, and fight over choreography, only to tank (or succeed) the next day. However, I came to a few realizations […]

Breaking Down “Breaking Brooklyn” with Paul Becker

Up until now, Paul Becker has been known as a dancer and choreographer; protégé to Kenny Ortega, who worked closely with the likes of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Cher, and Elton John. But Becker’s credits are impressive in their own right, ranging from films like Twilight, The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, and Disney’s The Descendants; in […]

The FlashBack: “The Flash” – Episode 11 “The Reverse-Flash Returns”

As the episode opens with our hero narrating, Barry talks about the nature of running and how it plays out in his life: running to avoid things. While he is running Harry and Cisco are irritating each other in the lab with Harry being demanding about what Barry needs to do and Cisco just poking his buttons.

Fly Like a Girl: “Supergirl” – Episode 11 “Strange Visitor from Another Planet”

Last night’s episode can be somewhat divided into two sections: First, there is the J’onn plot section and second, the Cat plot section. The episode flows as a woven tapestry, but it makes more sense to explain what happens based on the specific characters since there is very little overlap this time.

3 Fatherhood “Facts” That Are More Like Fiction

Is there anything scarier to a guy than the birth of their first child? Most men who have been there will tell you point blank that it’s nothing like they’ve ever experienced. And while that’s true, that moment after you first hear your child cry makes it really easy to overlook perhaps the scariest thing of […]

The Truth Is Out There: Chatting with Aliza Vellani of “The X-Files”

As one of the longest-running science fiction series in network television history, The X-Files is back this Sunday after nearly 13 years with a six-episode run. Returning are its two dynamic leads, Special Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) diving back into unsolved cases the FBI deems false or outlandish. Built upon the premise of alien cover-ups, […]

American Idol XV: Auditions Come to a Close

Another chapter has closed in the final book of the American Idol series. Or should I say the “farewell” book? During the Television Critic’s Association Press Tour last Friday, Seacrest, Lopez and Urban all corrected themselves after calling the show’s 15th season it’s “final” season. Whether that means the show will return down the road […]

White Ninja: Vine’s First Narrative Series

Nothing has changed entertainment more than technology. Twenty-five years ago, we were watching television shows on cable and movies on VHS. Now thanks to the internet, we’re using streaming services, YouTube, torrents, and social media to be entertained in a variety of ways. Consumers and creators have the world at their fingertips, and though many […]

The FlashBack: “The Flash” – Episode 10 “Potential Energy”

Last night’s episode opens with Barry and Patty happy. They are having a beautiful date (with the exception of some roses that caught fire due to Barry using his speed to get to the date). The happy couple laughs that off and settles into a nice evening when Zoom shows up, snatches Patty, and then throws her off a roof while Barry watches in horror.

Fly Like a Girl: “Supergirl” – Episode 10 “Childish Things”

We start our episode with Kara getting a flying lesson from Henshaw. As we all now know, Henshaw is really J’onn J’onnz, Martian Manhunter. Anyway, Henshaw is giving Kara a flying lesson and it’s pretty awesome. Martian Manhunter is fantastic as a character, but they really get him right on the show. It’s just so wonderful visually.

5 Ways to Keep Exercising During Winter

Baby, it’s cold outside! Even though you probably want to hibernate in your warm bed this winter and wear your Snuggie forever, that’s not something you can actually do—sorry! Winter weather can make getting up out of bed the least desirable thing to do, not to mention making exercise our Mount Everest. Though working out in […]
