Younger Season 5 Episode 8 Review: The Bubble

Oh my god. How hot was that opening scene on Younger Season 5 Episode 8? Unlike most fans, I didn't feel the sparks flying on Younger Season 5 Episode 7, but they made up for it big time. Sutton Foster and Peter Hermann are magic on the screen together. This series has always been very open about sex, but things just felt different with Charles; more intimate than they ever were with Josh. And I have to say a big thank you to everyone for making that scene more male-focused. Often, sex scenes are so woman-heavy, but in this case, it was clear production we all wanted to ogle every angle of Charles' glorious body. Okay, let me calm down. Winter break left Liza on cloud nine and that happiness continued onward into the new year. I haven't seen her smile that much ever! Post-break Charles was still very infatuated and romantic, but he had grown a beard that just wasn't doing him any favors. Generally, beards on men serve the same purpose as makeup for women, but Charles is naturally so handsome, he doesn't need anything to cover that face! Okay, let me calm down again. We've never seen Charles in a full-on relationship, pursuing someone he's very attracted to. Seeing this side of him -- planning cute dates, laughing in admiration of how beautiful Liza is and kissing her hand -- only made him even perfect in my eyes. Related: Get HBO via Prime Video Channels for Addictive Dramas, Hilarious Comedies & Hit Movies! No wonder Liza can't get him off of her mind. Younger is so good at spicing things up and teasing not only us, but the characters, with all the lingering glances, the under the table foreplay, and longing touches. Making out in the stairwell is a nice touch to show just how intense this "young love" feeling is for both of them. Though I'm surprised they are willing to risk it given so much is at stake. Younger Season 5 Episode 7 began a new chapter; one that would change everything forever. Even the music during the sex-scene was Camila Cabello's "Never Be the Same." How much more statement-y can you get? And it did. Liza's biggest concern isn't her age anymore. The one person she was most worried about was Charles, and he's accepted it. Secrecy has always been a focal point for the show, so we've transitioned from Liza keeping mum about her age to Liza and Charles hiding their office romance. You would think by now that she would have learned that lying gets you nowhere because a secret can always be held over you and used against you. And Pauline knows that very well. We knew she was going to return because last time we saw her, she had figured out that there was something romantic going on between Liza and Charles. I figured she would want to sabotage the relationship out of jealousy, but I did not peg her to be such a vindictive woman incapable of accepting any blame for her actions or her current predicament. ..

Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 10 Review: Off the Tit

Mama Smurf reigns again. It didn't take long for Smurf to get her boys all lined up in a row on Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 10 even if she did have a little bit of help from DCFS and Billy. Craig never got out of line; Pope tried it for a while but turned to mush because of Lena's situation, and even Deran's plan of breaking away got derailed. The only one who still seems to have a chance is J. Surprisingly. Deran thought he had it all figured out, and he did -- until he let Billy get in his head. Smurf might not have had anything to do with the blossoming relationship between Billy and Deran, but she definitely had everything to do with its ultimate destruction. She knew exactly how to play Billy, and she used him to get Deran back in line. But it's not all Smurf's fault. Deran is smart enough to know that Billy couldn't be trusted, but his desire to have a relationship with someone other than Smurf was his downfall. Related: Get Starz via Prime Video Channels for Captivating Original Series & Hit Movies! Deran barely knew Billy, and he should have been more careful. It was stupid for him to open the safe in front of Billy especially because the guy was so agitated about his cut of the weed heist. But Deran is a trusting guy so why would he think that his own father would steal from him after he gave him a nice wad of cash? Deran wasn't thinking straight then, and he wasn't thinking straight when he went to Smurf. He should have gone to Adrian to unload like he did earlier. If he had done that he wouldn't have had to hear the story about Billy ransoming him for drug money when he was a little boy. It's probably a true story, but with Smurf, who knows what's truth and what's not? Smurf knew that it was the right time to feed into Deran's vulnerability and a story about a dad that never was hit Deran right where it hurt most. You stop sucking on her tit, your balls might drop. Billy Permalink: You stop sucking on her tit, your balls might drop. Added: July 31, 2018 Smurf is an evil bitch, people. And for her to make that comment about some people not being fit to be parents was unbelievable. She needs to look in the mirror. Deran's life as an independent is over, and it's heartbreaking. Deran's whole story is heartbreaking, but it's his own fault. It didn't quite turn out how I thought it would. I knew that eventually, he'd be back in Smurf's grasp, just not this way. Related: Animal Kingdom Season 3 Episode 9 Review: Libertad Pope should have drowned the bastard in the pool. Had he done that, it would have saved Deran some pain. I'm disappointed in Pope. As much as I thought Lena would be his way out, it turned out that Lena was his downfall. Pope tried so hard to control himself at the DCFS, but he was too emotional. He couldn't help himself because he has never known how, and that's becau..

The Bold Type Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Trippin’

Did someone ask for a The Bold Type movie? Well, the show delivered just that with an episode that felt like its own separate story. Somehow time stood still, with so much happening and yet nothing coming off as too rushed. The use of a road trip allowed for movement within a limited amount of time, with each of the three leads learning something that they then took back with them to New York before the night was finished. It was a shakeup that worked perfectly, and it had a natural progression with which this season has otherwise struggled. During The Bold Type Season 2 Episode 9, Kat has to face the fact that Jacqueline may be wrong and she can't do anything to help the issue before it is too late. She also has to come face to face with where her relationship is going, and what it means for them currently. Meanwhile, Sutton has to go back home and face her mother, with their past issues preventing them from a smooth reunion. And Jane tries to remove herself from her fertility issues while Ryan decides to make his feelings known. All these stories stood out because of how they covered every corner of the spectrum. It was professional when it had to be and then personal when the time asked for it. Kat, Sutton, and Jane all had to deal with things they couldn't hide from no matter how hard they tried. For some, it was easy. Sutton faced a lot and gained something from it. Meanwhile, Kat and Jane are in weird positions in their private lives that they won't be able to figure out alone. As for Jacqueline, she is blinded just like the rest of us with a sharp turn in her career. Specifically, it feels like she is walking on eggshells and everything she does is now going to decide what this means for her on a professional level. Basically, the anxiety is at an all-time high all around. Sutton Sutton talking about her mother this season was a clear sign that she had to go back and revisit her past. She had a lot still buried within her, and she needed to talk to her mother about it now that she was in a self-sufficient place farther from her home. It was shocking to meet her mother, and it was even more surprising how much she had already changed for Sutton. It would have been so much better if she did it when Sutton needed her, but this is still important because her mother cares about her and is trying her best. Sutton returning home was in a way the perfect situation where she could then go to Paris without the weight of her mother hanging over her. She got this far in her career because of who she is and how amazing she can be, but having your past revisited positively is never a bad thing. It was almost like the ghost of her relationship with her mother was haunting her, and to move forward she had first to move back. It would be wonderful to see more of Sutton's mom; the girls usually don't explore their relationships with their parents much, but still. Sutton's mother checking in ..

Grey’s Anatomy Casts Chris Carmack as New Doctor

Chris Carmack is returning to ABC. The actor will check in to Grey's Anatomy this fall as an orthopedic surgeon and is known as an "Ortho God." As is always the case with Shondaland, details are scarce, but we do know he will be a recurring player this fall. Carmack is coming off a six-season stint on Nashville which concluded last week on CMT. The music-infused drama originally aired on ABC for its first four seasons, but the network canceled it in 2016 after amid falling ratings. Related: Grey's Anatomy Stunner: Jessica Capshaw & Sarah Drew Fired! There are a lot of changes as we head into Grey's Anatomy Season 15. Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew were let go from the venerable medical drama, with both exiting the series on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 24. The most surprising thing was that Arizona and April got happy endings, and were not killed off in a season finale twist. It was a fresh way to take things, but Grey's Anatomy Season 14 served as a rare return to form for the series. For the most part, the storylines were fresh, exciting and well-acted. It's difficult to keep things original after fourteen years on the air. Related: Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 24 Review: All of Me The season also featured the return of Kim Raver as Dr. Teddy Altman. Despite Raver being a recurring player on the season, it was confirmed earlier this year that she would be a series regular once again effective this fall. ABC confirmed earlier this month that Grey's would return with a two-hour season opener Thursday, September 27 at 8/7c. Aside from Nashville, Carmack has had roles on Desperate Housewives, The OC, and NCIS. Okay, Grey's Anatomy Fanatics! What are your thoughts on this news? Will you be watching Season 15?

Timeless Revived for Two-Hour Series Finale at NBC

Timeless has cheated death once again. NBC has placed an order for a two-hour series finale that will give closure to fans of the time travel drama. No air date has been announced, but it is said to premiere during the holidays. “While we wish we could’ve made another dozen seasons ofTimeless, this is the next best thing,” said executive producers Shawn Ryan and Eric Kripke in a joint statement. “We’re thrilled to take the Lifeboat out for one last spin and bring closure to our story. The studio, network, cast and crew are all doing this for one reason only: the fans." Related: Timeless Fails to Find New Home as Cast Options Expire "Because they deserve it. Because the fans made this happen and we thank them for their passion, support and helicopters. So? You guys want to get Rufus back or what?” “We’re excited to tell one final chapter to this incredible story,” said NBC Entertainment co-president of scripted programming Lisa Katz. “A huge thank you to all — our cast, crew, producers and partners at Sony — who have worked so very hard, and to the fans who kept us on our toes and made sure we did our very best week after week.” Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter, Malcolm Barrett, Goran Višnjić, Paterson Joseph, Sakina Jaffrey and Claudia Doumit are all slated to appear in the finale. The news comes a month after NBC decided to swing the ax on the popular series after two seasons, but there was a glimmer of hope that a finale special could see the light of day. "This is a sad day for the writers, actors, crew and especially the viewers of Timeless,” co-showrunner Shawn Ryan shared on Twitter when the show was canceled. “We are all extremely proud of what we made and know that it was more than just a show for so many of our fans. It became a passion and a cause for many of them." “If NBC is sincere in wanting a two-hour movie to give much needed closure to our amazing @NBCTimeless fans, we are ready to make it,” he added. “We don’t want the journeys of Lucy, Wyatt, Rufus and the others to end yet.” Thankfully, we now know that the movie will become a reality and that fans will get an ending. Related: Timeless Canceled (Again) By NBC This news also marks the second time NBC has saved the series after canceling it. While the show was canceled, it still had a huge presence at San Diego Comic-Con. Fans donated money to have a helicopter fly a banner urging other outlets to pick up the series. Netflix has been one of the destinations eyed as a potential home for the series, but Cindy Holland confirmed at Netflix's TCA event last Sunday that there were no plans to bring the series back. "To be honest, I'm not aware of any real conversations about Timeless," she said. Okay, Timeless Fanatics! We may not be getting another season, but at least we know there will be closure!

17 TV Characters We’d Want as Bridesmaids!

The most important thing to have by your side on your wedding day, other than the bride/groom, of course, is a few good bridesmaids. Bridesmaids are the ladies (and, occasionally, gentleman) who know you better than you know yourself. They've been there for you through the best and worst times, in sickness and in health, and know your darkest secrets. They are also the ones who take care of your problems, stop you from becoming a bridezilla, and party with you during your "last fling before the ring." Naturally, you see why you'd want to pick only the best. From ladies who have a proven "bridesmaids" track record to besties we know would make great ones in the future, here's a list of TV show characters we'd want in our bridal squad. 1. Jane Villaneuva - Jane the Virgin The Planner. Jane goes all out for her friends and family, plus, her specialty is planning. During the show's four-season run, she served as a bridesmaid twice, so she has a lot of experience under her belt. The first time, she helped bestie Lina with a case of cold feet and helped her figure out if Danny was the right man for her. The second time, despite all the obstacles thrown her way, she came through to officiate her mother and father's wedding. She's also been a bride herself, so she knows a thing or two about the big day. 2. Jess Day - New Girl The Fixer. No wedding is perfect. Something is bound to go wrong, so it's pertinent that you have someone who can smooth things over like Jess does during Schmidt's wedding. Not only does she stall when Schmidt is trying to convince Cece's mom to support the marriage, she also helps avoid a major dress crisis. 3. Rory and Lorelai - Gilmore Girls The Day Ones. A mother-daughter duo standing up for your wedding is adorable especially if the duos consists of Rory and Lorelai Gilmore. You always want the women who have been there for you since day one to be by your side. Lorelai is even known to throw a bachelorette party for those she's not too fond of like her mother. 4. Brooke, Peyton, Haley - One Tree Hill The High School Besties. I list all three of them because they were all there for each other during their individual weddings. Peyton and Brooke put aside their differences -- they were fighting over a boy, obviously -- to celebrate Hayley and Nathan! Brooke designed all the wedding dresses, Hayley filled in as Brooke's maid of honor when Peyton couldn't make it, and she even officiated Peyton and Lucas' wedding. Okay, Hayley wins this round! 5. Will McCormack - Will & Grace The Gay Best Friend. Who said bridesmaids had to be girls? Sometimes, your best friend is your fabulous gay roommate who will do anything for you including escort you down the aisle and give you away to your Leo. Did I mention he also makes a damn good looking bridesmaid? 6. Monica Geller - Friends The One Who Won't Take No For an Answer and is also a Good Planner. Even ..

33 Shamefully Addictive Reality Shows We Can’t Stop Watching!

Reality shows are like bad habits. If anyone asks? We don't acknowledge we have them, or in this case, we don't watch them. But somebody is watching them, otherwise, they wouldn't be so popular and still on the air. There's something shameful about admitting that we watch reality shows from the tear jerkers to the trashy, and everything in-between. Unfortunately, some of them are too addictive for their (and our) own good. Check out a list of shamefully addictive reality shows that we hate to admit we watch. If you dare, you can hit the comments with some of your addictive reality shows that didn't make the list. No judgment! 1. Big Brother For 20 seasons, Julie Chen AKA Chenbot has thrown houseguests (who may or may not start seeming like replicas of one another) into a house together where there is 24-hour surveillance to compete for $500,000. What fans end up with are alliances, showmances, betrayal, backdooring, and all the controversy that comes with putting real people, however problematic, into a house together under constant surveillance and giving fans access to live feeds the majority of the time. It cultivated an entire community of die-hard fans spread across every social network on the web. It's complete and utter trash, and you'll swear you won't watch it again, but every summer, you'll park your ass right in front of the screen and watch all that salacious drama and messiness. 2. Catfish: The TV Show Catfish has become a global sensation and pop culture juggernaut sparking a new term to accommodate the deceptive individuals in the dating scene during the information age. Nev (the hopeless romantic of the two) faces each new case with a bit of optimism, and Max (the cynic and king of the side-eye) quietly expresses his doubts while banding together to help out unsuspecting victims. It's a wild ride of deception and jaw-dropping moments. Every episode you wonder how gullible individuals are still getting catfished by individuals with two stock photos and a broken webcam, but you'll tune in for the inevitable drama that comes when catfish and victim meet with Nev and Max facilitating (or sh!t-stirring). It's not all drama; sometimes there are love stories and inspiring moments too. 3. Alone The History channel has its very own reality show that is too addictive for words. It's their own answer to a survivalist show that has individuals stranded in the wilderness with limited survival equipment. It's a self-documentation, and all the contestants are isolated from the rest of the world and one another with the exception of their mandatory medical check-ins, and they're competing for half a million dollars. The last person remaining without tapping out or being taken out for medical reasons wins! Dare you not to watch. 4. The Bachelor Franchise The things a person will do for love (or the chance to be on television and perhaps be the next star in the ne..

The Originals Round Table: Which Brother Will Die?

Which brother will perish? That was the big question after The Originals Season 5 Episode 12, and TV Fanatics Lizzy Buczak, Justin Carreiro and Paul Dailly weigh up the options below. Which character would you prefer sacrificed themselves: Klaus or Elijah? Lizzy: 100% Elijah. It's the only thing that makes sense and would leave fans satisfied. His sacrifice would be the ultimate gift to the brother he's dedicated his whole life to. Klaus has redeemed himself and needs to be around for Hope and Caroline. Plus, Elijah wants this so he could finally be reunited with the love of his life. Related: Legacies: Key Art & Synopsis Released Justin: Definitely Elijah over Klaus. Elijah has already lost so much, and him sacrificing himself would reunite him with his love. His storyline has always been about honor and family; this would complete the plot. Paul: I agree with Lizzy and Justin. Elijah is done with his life and is ready to move and find peace with Hayley on the other side. I don't find anything remotely satisfying about Klaus dying. Now that we know Hayley has found her happy place, have you changed your thoughts on the way her death was handled? Lizzy: Nope. I still don't think she deserved to die and it wasn't necessary for the storyline, it was done for shock-value. However, I am happy that she's found peace and reunited with her parents and Jackson. I'd like to think that's what the afterlife holds for all of us. Justin: Not at all. Sure, it’s great to know that she’s happy on the other side, but the lead-up to it all was underwhelming. She was gone for so long and then just died. She deserved better. Related: Legacies Trailer: Welcome Back to Mystic Falls Paul: I'm on the fence. Her death was handled terribly. It felt like a slap in the face to fans of the character, but getting to see her actually happy on the other side is a little heartwarming. With that said, Hope is without a mother, and to me, it feels like the death was a way to make a reason for Hope to return to the school without her mother in tow. Did the trip to Mystic Falls make you more or less excited for Legacies? Lizzy: It made me miss The Vampire Diaries, that's for sure. I felt so old -- like I was returning to my hometown for my high school reunion or something. It was weird to see that nothing had changed, but everything was different. I am glad that the series is coming back to its roots, and we get to see a closer look at the Salvatore School. Justin: I’m so excited for Legacies! Like Lizzy said, it’s like going back to the beginning. Things obviously are going to be different than The Vampire Diaries, but it’s great that the world keeps growing. Related: Legacies: How Will Paul Wesley Be Involved? Paul: I agree. The Vampire Diaries is one of my favorite shows of all time, so I was nostalgic about returning to some of the key locations. With that said, it's going to be d..

Stephen Colbert Talks Les Moonves Allegations: Accountability Should be for Everybody!

Stephen Colbert opened up about his thoughts on the sexual misconduct allegations lodged against his boss, Les Moonves on Monday's episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Speaking of the allegations, he initially said he did not to know the contents of the stunning article which was published in the New Yorker on Friday. However, his view changed when he learned that Ronan Farrow, the same person who helped expose Harvey Weinstein's alleged misconduct. "That’s not good," he said as though he was trying to figure out what to say next. "Women over the past year have felt empowered to tell their stories in ways they haven't before, which is an objectively good thing, because – and it's strange to have to say this – powerful men taking advantage of relatively powerless employees are wrong," he said. Related: Julie Chen Breaks Silence on Les Moonves Accusations: I Support My Husband! "We know it's wrong now, and we knew it was wrong then. How do we know we knew it was wrong then? Because we know these men tried to keep the stories from coming out back then." Colbert subsequently admitted that "in a situation like this, I'd normally call Les." "I don't know what's going to happen, but I do believe in accountability, and not just for politicians you disagree with," the comedian continued. While he described Les as "my guy," was clear that the accountability even extends to Moonves. "He hired me to sit in this chair. He stood behind this show while we were struggling to find our voice. He gave us the time and the resources to succeed, and he has stood by us when people were mad at me, and I like working for him," Colbert said. "But accountability is meaningless unless it's for everybody – whether it's the leader of a network or the leader of the free world." The article detailed six women's allegations against Mr. Moonves, as well as claims that the network did not fully investigate sexual harassment by other employees. Watch the full video below.

Jamie and Claire are ready to embrace the New World on the official teaser for Outlander Season 4, and while they are trying to make a home for themselves in North Carolina, the danger is lurking in the shadows. The happy couple is ready to move on from the past, and think that a life in the Americas is the way forward. They could not be more wrong.
