The Conners Season 1 Episode 3 Review: There Won’t Be Blood

The Conner family tradition of going all out for Halloween was alive and well tonight. It didn't take long for the Conner family to get in the Halloween spirit on The Conners Season 1 Episode 3, and boy did it bring back a lot of memories. The great thing about Roseanne was the yearly tradition of their Halloween episode because it showed the kooky side to this family. They never cared what people thought and let their freak flag fly high on Halloween. It was wonderful having the family keeping the tradition alive while also coming up with some extremely inventive costumes especially considering the costumes revolved around various puns -- Becky's costume was the clear winner of the evening. Related: The Conners Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Tangled Up in Blue I wasn't surprised they decided to tackle the school having a problem with "insensitive" costumes considering the Conners are the first family of Halloween. Dan made some excellent points as well. There was no way Dan and Roseanne would have let the school get away with keeping their kids from wearing certain costumes. Mark's was one of the least offensive costumes I've seen this year. Can we all just take a moment to appreciate the creativity behind Mark's new costume of Frida Kahlo? If I were Mark, I would have just thrown a sheet with holes over my head and called it a day. He takes after Darlene in so many ways with his artistic abilities. Related: The Conners Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Keep On Truckin We all knew Mark's new costume was going to cause an issue at the Halloween festival for his school. The reasoning behind it was incredibly ridiculous. Who's offended by a ninja costume? I've lived in Lanford my whole life and I have yet to run into a ninja. Dan Permalink: Who's offended by a ninja costume? I've lived in Lanford my whole life and I have yet to run... Added: October 30, 2018 I know they were exaggerating things to make a point, but it made me furious. Mark was dressed up as Frida Kahlo because he wanted to show appreciation for her as an artist -- there was nothing wrong with what he was wearing. There was no malice or disrespect behind any of it, and he spent a lot of time creating this beautiful piece of work. Thank goodness Darlene was there to stick up for him and express how insane the rules were. Related: Get HBO via Prime Video Channels for Addictive Dramas, Hilarious Comedies & Hot Movies! Mark and the rest of the children he goes to school with all want to wear specific costumes because they are fans of the people they are dressing up as. It's sad to see such an innocent thing getting torn apart. Moving on to Jackie, who else had a love/hate for her boyfriend, Peter? Mattew Broderick did a fantastic job of playing a know-it-all professor who leaves a bad taste in your mouth. I'm a little surprised Jackie was able to get such a catch considering he's..

The Gifted Season 2 Episode 5 Review: afterMath

It's apparent Lorna isn't under the Frost sisters' spell on The Gifted Season 2 Episode 5 because she knows exactly what she did. More than that, she has no problem with betraying the Underground or that Andy almost killed his sister. Cold, girl. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. What did the Frost sisters and Lorna think was going to happen by treating Rebecca like a circus monkey? As Andy pointed out, she's a person, and they should treat her as such. We all know that was just a ruse to hook Andy up with a girlfriend, though, don't we? It was a little too fast if you ask me and I don't think Reeva's going to be too happy about it. Inside out, huh? My name's Andy Andy Permalink: Inside out, huh? My name's Andy Added: October 30, 2018 Rebecca loves to use her powers. She's adorable, but why she's so important to the cause, I'm not sure yet. Her captors couldn't keep a collar on her, so maybe she'll be used to free more people. Or, since they keep referring to her as a weapon, she'll be turning humans inside out. Eww, and cool. Not that I'm on Hellfire's side, but they're way ahead of the Underground on their mission and more organized. The Underground is piecemeal, at best, and it's hard to tell what their purpose is anymore. They have to be asking themselves if they're even making a difference. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! It looks like John is having doubts. He doesn't want to be part of Hellfire, but it's like the Mutant Underground is kept together with tape and glue. They're scattered, they're disorganized, and they're losing mutants. John had so much faith that the X-Men chose him and was firm in his purpose. The loss of their headquarters has shaken his faith, and he seems less confident than he used to be. Reed: I just can't believe that you looked him in the eye, told him you wanted him to come home and he attacked you. Lauren: He believes. I could see it in his eyes. Permalink: He believes. I could see it in his eyes. Added: October 30, 2018 Hell, Caitlin is more level-headed than John right now. She knows what's at stake, which she proved when she lied to John. He wasn't and isn't thinking clearly anymore. A quick word about Caitlin. I know she's a mom and all, but her constant push to insist Andy needs saving has to stop. She needs to wake up and realize he's not coming back. I hope when Lauren feels better, she can set her mom straight. Caitlin is going after Andy in vain. In this episode, Andy said he's with his new family. That's brutal and if Caitlin heard that she would probably say Hellfire brainwashed him. He isn't brainwashed, though, and, as Lauren said,..

This Is Us Season 3 Episode 6 Review: Kamsahamnida

They may be self-involved and a little whiney at times, but when times get tough, the Pearsons are always there for each other. That sums up the tagline of This Is Us Season 3 Episode 6. While This Is Us has produced some monumental, over-the-top episodes such as This Is Us Season 3 Episode 4, it's episodes like "Kamsahamnida" that reminds us why we fell in love with the Pearsons. Brothers and sisters. Brothers and brothers. Mothers and daughters. Fathers and sons. Husbands and wives. It's the small moments in each of these relationships that makes them so special. "Kamsahamnida" was all about small moments. There was no war, no grandiose fire, no family therapy session. There were phone calls, walks to the park, and family lunches. It's the little things that make a family special, and the Pearsons' best moments are captured when the show focuses on the little things. One of those little things includes the growth of Kevin and Randall's relationship. There was always a lingering tension between the two, but now that they talked it out and shared their feelings on This Is Us Season 2, the tension has disintegrated. Related: This Is Us Season 3 Episode 5 Review: Toby Now, the two are simply just brothers willing to help each other in any way they can. Anytime Kevin and Randall share a scene I can't help but smile as much as those Korean girls who were fawning all over Kevin. The jealousy they once felt towards each other has just turned into admiration and respect. It's so beautiful that every time they share a smile, I want to burst into tears. It just makes me so happy. I've been a little irritated with Randall recently because it felt like he was using the Councilman thing as his way to not only feel like he belonged with a black community, but also because he needs everyone to feel the same way he feels. However, Super Kevin, unbeknownst to himself, saved Randall from himself. With Randall's brain and Kevin's muscles, Randall managed to win over the Korean population in the community and even scored himself a campaign manager. Randall: Thanks Kev, I appreciate it, man. Kevin: Hey man, these muscles aren't just for show. Actually, that's not true at all, they're mostly just for show. Permalink: Hey man, these muscles aren't just for show. Actually, that's not true at all, they're mostly... Added: October 30, 2018 Randall also helped Kevin figure out his own stuff. He continuously watches as Randall goes for the things he wants despite how hard it may be and doesn't give up until he gets it. Kevin decided to take a leap of faith in his search for answers about Jack's time in Vietnam and in his relationship with Zoe. Kevin and Zoe are going to Vietnam! I'm so ready for Zoe and Kevin's relationship to take the next step and to see Justin Hartley slay it in the Vietnam storyline. Hopefully, if This Is Us de..

Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Translucent Freak

There is trouble in paradise between the dynamic duo of Black Lightning and Thunder. After weeks of power struggles and barbs, Anissa packed her bags on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 4. She may have only moved to Gambi's place, but her move signified a big change in her father/daughter relationship. Thunder is no sidekick, and she won't be forced into anyone's rules! Experiencing freedom from her father will be a new start for Anissa. Plus, the change greatly helps the plot structure. One of the reasons that tore Jefferson and Anissa apart was the fact that they lived AND worked together. That situation alone created a recipe for disaster. Anissa is a grown woman with her own thoughts, feelings, and decisions. She didn't need Jefferson to force his rules on her, especially with restrictions on how to be a superhero. Coming into her own would rely on her figuring out how she could balance her real-life and be a superhero at the same time. Jefferson's words weren't wholly incorrect; he was right about her recklessness and keeping a cool head in dangerous situations. However, he needed to separate the working relationship from his family relationship. The second he did that, their partnership repaired itself for the better. You could see a significant change in their dynamic during the argument and then afterward during the rescue at the clinic. Apologies go a long way in a situation as personal as this. Anissa: Aren’t we supposed to be helping people? Jefferson: We are helping people! But unlike criminals, we have rules that we need to follow. Anissa: Rules made by whom? Jefferson: Rules made by me. Anissa: Guess what, I have a different set of rules because I’m not going to watch my people get taken advantage of. Jefferson: They are not your people, Anissa! And as long as you are under my roof, you will follow my rules! Permalink: Rules made by me. Added: October 28, 2018 Now, they can be the best team again while still holding their father/daughter relationship. Plus, the decision for her to move out of the house will expand Black Lightning Season 2's storyline outside of the Pierce household. While the previous focus on family created new layers to the characters, the central setting reined in the drama a bit too much. Family issues started to outweigh the metahuman story. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! Black Lightning succeeds thanks to its focus on characters and making them come across as real people. On the other hand, this is a TV show about metahumans. The metahuman and Tobias plots were being treated as afterthoughts when they should've been given a more prominent focus. I'm excited that these stories are now getting the attention they need to develop. Anissa, Jefferson and Gambi's big climactic scenes at the clinic offered a fun interlude to bring our characte..

Game of Thrones Prequel: Naomi Watts Lands Lead Role!

The Game of Thrones prequel has its first cast member! According to Deadline, Naomi Watts has signed on to lead the cast of the prequel pilot which is in the works at HBO from writer Jane Goldman and Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin. Little is known about who Watts will be playing aside from a "charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret." Goldman is attached to the project as showrunner, and will executive produce alongside Martin. Simply put, the spinoff is in good hands. Plot details were revealed earlier this year ahead of the pilot order. Related: Game of Thrones Prequel Gets Pilot Order According to the official logline, “the series chronicles the world’s descent from the Golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour." "And only one thing is for sure: from the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East to the Starks of legend… it’s not the story we think we know.” Sounds intriguing, right? “None of the characters or actors from Game of Thrones will appear in the new show," Martin said of the prequel in a blog post in June, adding: "All of the successor shows we’ve been developing have been prequels, as I have mentioned before." "This one really puts the pre in prequel, since it is set not ninety years before Game of Thrones (like Dunk & Egg), or a few hundred years, but rather ten thousand years (well, assuming the oral histories of the First Men are accurate, but there are maesters at the Citadel who insist it has only been half that long)," he continued. "We’re very early in the process, of course, with the pilot order just in.” Game of Thrones has yet to unspool its final season, and will allegedly return to HBO for its last six episodes in the first half of 2019. Related: Game of Thrones: HBO Boss Narrows Down Final Season Premiere Date Watts is probably best known for her movie roles in King Kong, The Ring, and Mulholland Drive. She recently starred in Netflix's Gypsy which lasted one season at Netflix in 2017, and also appeared in the Twin Peaks revival at Showtime. What are your thoughts on this news?

Fuller House Season 4 Gets December Premiere Date at Netflix!

Fuller House will be home for Christmas, TV Fanatics! By that, we mean Netflix is debuting brand new episodes of the comedy series in December, just in time for the holidays. The popular spinoff of Full House was renewed back in January for the fourth season, and given that the last batch of episodes bowed last December, a premiere date was imminent. Netflix has confirmed the entire fourth season will land on December 14. Related: Fuller House Creator Fired The show's future was placed in doubt earlier this year when creator Jeff Franklin was fired following allegations of misconduct. He was let go as showrunner when it was alleged that he made sexual comments about his personal life in the writer's room. In one instance, it was reported that he brought one woman he was in a relationship with to the taping of the show, and even went as far as offering her a role on the show. Warner Bros. TV group conducted a full investigation before concluding that it was best if he was ousted from the series. In the aftermath, Steve Baldikoski and Bryan Behar were elevated to co-showrunners, after serving as co-executive producers since the show's launch in 2016. As for the show's future beyond Season 4, TV Line recently reported that there was a possibility that Netflix was not bringing the show back for a fifth season. Given that it's a high-profile series, it's difficult to imagine the streamer not giving the show a proper ending, but time will tell whether the fourth season includes enough closure to rule it the end. Netflix has been on a cancellation spree of late. Marvel's Iron Fist and Marvel's Luke Cage were both canceled recently, as well as American Vandal. Related: Iron Fist Canceled at Netflix! All three shows were axed after their second seasons. What are your thoughts on the premiere date? Are you ready for the show to end? Hit the comments below.

Grey’s Anatomy Round Table: The Best Version of Amelia!

There were some fun new dynamics on Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 5. Also, after an in-depth talk with Meredith, Teddy made the decision to tell Owen the truth about her pregnancy. Meanwhile, Amelia and Owen spent the day posted outside of Betty's school to make sure she didn't get into trouble. Join TV Fanatics Rachelle Lewis, Stacy Glanzman, and Kim Russell as they discuss the hour. Teddy explained why she was holding off on telling Owen the truth. What are your thoughts on her reasoning? Rachelle: I agree with her reasoning. She loves him plain and simple. Teddy didn’t want to mess up the happiness Owen has found. I do think she is correct in the sense that Owen can’t be alone. He does go from woman to woman. I felt for her as she was explaining herself to Meredith. She is alone, confused and pregnant. That being said it is time for her to tell him. The secret needs to come out. Thankfully, the previews for next week’s episode make it look like Teddy is going to tell Owen. I hope that is not a big tease. Related: Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 5 Review: Everyday Angel Stacy: I can understand where her head was at, but I think if she had really thought it through, she would have realized that telling him was the right thing to do. Sparing his feelings now will only lead to more pain later. If Owen found out on his own years later, he would be so hurt that she didn't tell him. Romantic feelings aside, these two are supposed to be best friends. He would be devastated if she kept his baby away from him. Kim: She loves Owen and wants him to love her for her. I get it, and it's valid, but she is where she is. She's scared, but she's going to have to take the leap. If Owen is half the man she believes he is (and he is), he will be there for her and their baby. She has to trust him and trust that she's been right about him since day one. Watch Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Episode 5 Online Which dynamic did you enjoy the most: Bailey and Jo, Teddy and Mer, Webber and DeLuca, or Link and Alex? Rachelle: Teddy and Meredith all the way. I enjoyed not only these two women bonding and supporting each other but also a storyline outside the hospital. They were also hilarious together. Yes, the two ladies were having a serious discussion, but between the cooking and Teddy’s anger, there were several funny moments. Stacy: Alex and Link for me, mostly because I was so relieved they didn't go down the jealousy path with Alex again. Been there, done that. When they revealed the real reason why Alex was angry, it made total sense. Related: You Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Joe's Upgrade Both Link and Jo stated they had a sibling type relationship, and in Alex's mind, Link didn't behave like a brother should when his sister is in trouble.

17 TV Characters Who Would Have Made A Killing During Prohibition

Prohibition is one of the coolest periods of history. The music was jumping. The fashion was hot. And every drink someone downed was another instance of sticking it to the G-Man. For all of those reasons and more, TV loves depicting Prohibition in one form or another. Some shows are lucky enough to be set that era or can use time travel to transport its characters back to the 20s. Related: Explore Hundreds of Hours of Curated Historical Videos with History Vault via Prime Video Channels! Other shows have to get more creative about how they can justify alcohol bans and characters talking like wiseguys while wearing feathers, fringe, or pinstripes. When it's pulled off, it makes for a great episode of television. To make it during Prohibition though takes more than good looks and speaking the password. Who can run a smuggling enterprise, brew and distill intoxicating substances, operate a speakeasy, and possess the grit to take out the competition before they take you down first? Read on to find out. 1. Meredith Grey - Grey's Anatomy Meredith loves tequila, dance parties and has no qualms about helping friends who run into trouble with the law. She would fight as hard to keep a speakeasy alive as she would for any patient. 2. Lucifer & Maze - Lucifer What happens when The Devil and his trusted bodyguard leave Hell? They open the hottest bar in Los Angeles, and kind of got bored with it pretty quickly. Good thing they waited for the 21st century because running a bar during Prohibition would have been far too easy for them. 3. Homer & Bart Simpson - The Simpsons Homer has the determination. Bart has the deviousness. Together they keep Springfield liquored up while Rex Banner is left wondering how the Beer Baron got the better of him. 4. Teresa Mendoza - Queen of the South Running a smuggling operation takes brains, cunning, daring and you have to be ready to deal with betrayal at the drop of a hat. Teresa Mendoza has all of these traits, which is how she was able to go from being a money changer who barely earned enough to scrape by to the head of a drug empire. All hail the Queenpin! 5. Hawkeye Pierce - M*A*S*H Keeping a distillery in your tent is definitely against army regulations, but Hawkeye Pierce is never afraid to thumb his nose at authority. Break his still, take it away, it won't do any good because Hawkeye will always find a way to make sure he has a never-ending supply of martinis. 6. Walter White - Breaking Bad Cooking meth or distilling spirits -- it's all just a matter of chemistry to Heisenberg. If Breaking Bad was set in the 20s, you could bet Walter White would still be the one who knocks. View Slideshow

19 Surprising TV Actors Who Also Direct

Lots of actors are satisfied with perfecting their craft in front of the camera. They shine in the spotlight. But sometimes they're inspired to play a different role in TV, and that's the role of director. These actors have ideas and a vision of what they would like to see in a show. Most times they're directing the show they act in. Related: Get Comic Con HQ via Prime Video Channels to Stream Original Series, Past Comic-Con Panels & More! These actors know the show so well that they want to expand their creative wings and make their visions come to life from behind the screen. Typically acting as they direct, these talents move flawlessly between roles, often enhancing their acting ability. Experiencing a TV show from a different perspective is a challenge. One that a lot of actors aspire to achieve. Have any of your favorite actors also directed the very shows you enjoy? Chances are they might have. Read on to find out if your favorites have made the leap. 1. Matthew Gray Gubler - Criminal Minds It should come as no surprise that the talent who plays Dr. Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds has 11 directing credits from the show. Gubler has also directed several short films and is a writer, producer, and artist. That's a whole lot of talent wrapped up in our favorite brainiac. 2. Chandra Wilson - Grey's Anatomy Chandra Wilson plays the five-foot-nothing no-nonsense heart of gold surgeon Dr. Miranda Bailey on Grey's Anatomy. While playing the role, she's also directed a whopping 19 episodes for the series.

Hugh Laurie - House We know Hugh Laurie as House on the medical drama of the same name. Did you know he also directed a couple of episodes? We have to wonder if acting with an American accent while directing without tripped up the actor on set. It's funny to imagine House with a British accent. 5. Jennifer Garner - Alias Jennifer Garner played Sydney Bristow, a kickass international spy for the five season series. A year before the end of the series, Garner tried her hand at directing. She directed one episode for the series and hadn't tried it again since, but that doesn't mean she won't. 6.
