Last Night’s ‘The Good Wife’ Was So, Incredibly Bad

In the best way...

Aghhhhh. I just finished watching last night’s The Good Wife, and it was so appropriately titled. “Dark Money,” indeed. I’m about to write my review for Paste Magazine, but I just had to talk it up a bit on here. I know I’ve converted a few of you recently, but if you’re still not watching, OMG please get your life in order. If you are watching any TV show at all, this needs to be one of them. Last night we saw Alicia do some things we NEVER, ever expected her to do and it was incredible. And dark. And sad. And made for great TV. As is usually the case with this show.

An Old Friend Returned On Last Night’s Episode Of ‘Scandal’: ‘No More Blood’

(Episode 3.14)

Guys. I actually got the warm and tinglys watching Scandal last night. Okay. Fine. I admit it… I teared up a bit. Last night was a special treat for those of us who’ve been watching Scandal since the first season. Back then, Shonda Rhimes‘ new show was just a sweet, little newbie—only seven episodes in that entire season. And the Gladiator we thought we lost, has just been found. Click inside for more!

Olivia Pope Pronounced Dead On Last Night’s ‘Scandal’: ‘Gladiators Don’t Run’

Season 4, Episode 12

Hope y’all excuse the late and brief Scandal recap, but today my first grader had Read-In Day (an all-day reading marathon, party thing), and his teacher invited parents to come in and read a book to the class. So I spent the morning working on the perfect Mom ponytail, and then reading Giraffes Can’t Dance to the sweetest group of kids. It was awesome, and a hilarious way to spend the day, considering that last night I went to sleep with visions of a blood-soaked Huck dancing in my head. OMFG, this might be a good time to get him back into AA for “whiskey.” So, I really liked last night’s Scandal, although I did take issue with one particular plot point/message.

On Beef Stew, Helen Of Troy, And Last Night’s ‘Scandal’: ‘Where’s The Black Lady?’

Season 4, Episode 11

I honestly didn’t think last night’s Scandal would entertain me as much as last week’s winter premiere, but I was totally wrong. While last week brought us all sorts of new and exciting stylistic changes, this week’s episode came back down to Earth. For the first 20 minutes or so, I was prepared to start out my review by declaring that “Run” was a tough act to follow, and so it made sense that “Where’s the Black Lady?” felt like a letdown. But when things started to pick up, and Huck started being HUCK, I decided that this was a great follow up. Click inside for more!

Oh, The Incredible Weirdness Of The ‘Scandal’ Season Four Winter Premiere

Season 4, Episode 10

I don’t know if there’s anything more fun than watching Scandal with someone who has never watched Scandal before. It is an intoxicatingly hilarious experience. Last night I was live-tweeting Run, the Season Four winter premiere, and our TV Editor at Paste joined me—having only watched about three episodes of the show in her life. It was incredible, but especially because I was really just as confused as she was. AMAZING. And I have to admit, I was prepared to be kinda, sorta, not that into the episode but dammit. Shonda Rhimes knows I like when ish gets weird, and boy, oh boy. Did ish get weird. Click inside for more!

OMG Did You Watch … ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Series Finale: ‘Papa’s Goods’

The TV Guide

Last night, the series finale episode of Sons of Anarchy aired on FX bringing to a close the 7 season series that loosely told the tale of Shakespeare‘s Hamlet through the lives of a California motorcycle club. I made sure to be in front of my TV set last night to watch the series finale episode Papa’s Goods live as it aired so that the finale wouldn’t be spoiled in any way. I will recap the episode below with commentary and animated gifs so if you have yet to watch last night’s episode, you might want to come back after you do. Altho Sons of Anarchy was far from a perfect show, it definitely ended in a way that left many fans very satisfied and other fans very unsatisfied … which is exactly what one should expect from a series finale episode of any TV show.

The ‘Scandal’ Winter Finale Was Too Much For Me: ‘Where the Sun Don’t Shine’

Season 4, Episode 9

Um. Okay. But what just happened? There I was, watching Scandal. There were only a few seconds left, and I was so caught up in that mambo dance, I forgot to be scared for my life. UGH. LIVVYYYYyyyyyy! Okay, let me rewind. Last night’s Scandal Season Four winter finale did like 8 things—it was all over the place in all of the right ways. My head hurts, my heart hurts, and—for whatever reason—I kind of want to see my face on one of those supercool kill cards. Click inside for more!

Here Are The Top 5 ‘YesPlease, MoreThankYou’ Moments From ‘Scandal’: ‘Baby Made A Mess’

Season 4, Episode 7

Did anyone else have a Yes Scandal is back! moment last night? Because I had, like, 3 of them. As you all know, I’ve been kinda meh about the show this season. The premiere was kind of meh, and then, in comparison to my new favorite prime time show, it felt kind of meh. But last night I remembered why I fell in love with Olivia Pope, and I had that longing for her to come into my house, tear down my stupid homemade banners, and make me a Senator. All good feelings, pluuuuusssss SEXY PHONE SEX TIME! Click inside for more!
