'The 100' Goes Dark In A Good Way: Season 2 Secrets From The CW Show's Creator

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: "I didn't see that coming." I said that to myself more than once during the first three episodes of " The 100," which returns Wednesday on The CW. The good news is, those shocks weren't gratuitous or unsatisfying, and they weren't merely there to shine a light on whatever wild plot turn had arisen in this brisk tale of post-apocalyptic survival.

'Penny Dreadful' Creator On What's Next For The Engaging And Underrated Horror Show

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: In a year full of wonderful new shows, " Penny Dreadful" was one of the most pleasant surprises. Perhaps "pleasant" isn't the right word: "Arresting," "energetic," "intense" and "heartbreaking" might be better descriptors of the Showtime drama, which arrived on DVD and other platforms Oct. 14.

The first episode of the show, which introduced crime-scene technician Barry Allen and his newfound need for speed, was The CW's most-watched premiere in five years. In Tuesday's episode of the comic-book drama, Allen runs into a brick wall.

Two Great New Shows You Should Watch: 'The Affair' And 'Jane The Virgin'

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: " Jane the Virgin" and " The Affair" are two shows that, on the surface, don't have much in common. But that surface is deceptive. Here's one important quality they share: They're both excellent. I highly recommend "Jane the Virgin" and "The Affair," which do different things in their debut episodes, but they do those things very well.

What 'The Flash' Gets Right About Superheroes (Any Why It Can Thank 'Arrow')

huffingtonpost.com — It would be awful if "The Flash" were a drag, right? If the CW show, which debuts 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday and is based on the famous DC Comics character, lacked energy and vigor, viewers would end up struggling with a huge disconnect, given th...

'The Good Wife' Brings Fun To Quality TV

huffingtonpost.com — Posted: There are few things in life more fun than " The Good Wife" when it is firing on all cylinders. Sunday's episode was most definitely a case of the show doing its thing with admirable panache.

'A Chef's Life' Returns With More Mouthwatering Goodness

'Homeland' Season 4 Review: What The Brody-Free Version Of The Show Looks Like

huffingtonpost.com — Even at the height of "Homeland's" best era -- and it was a considerable height -- it was hard not to think about what would happen if the show fell off the tightrope. And let's face it, many of us were afraid the "if" in the ...

Great idea or greatest idea? Movie where Groot meets up with the Entwives. At least an animated sitcom: “Branching Out.” You’re welcome!

@ConnieBV she’s great. Bet she won’t do it. Too much downside if it’s not a hit.
