Vikings Season 5 Episode 17 Review: The Most Terrible Thing

The death continues, and even though no essential characters died on Vikings Season 5 Episode 17, Floki will still be affected by the most recent one. I'm still not entirely sure where the Iceland story is going, but I do feel bad for Floki. He envisioned so much for that settlement, and it's not going at all the way he hoped. He expected to be living among the gods, but so far there's only been violence and despair. Maybe it will get better for him soon. He's already suffered so much. Every time we think he's reached rock bottom, there seems to be another layer underneath. Alfred is awake, and surprisingly, Judith was honest with him about Aethelred. I expected she would be content to let him go on believing he died of natural causes, but she told him the truth. Related: Vikings Season 5 Episode 16 Review: The Buddha I have to give some props to Jennie Jacques for an incredible performance. That was indeed some fantastic acting. Judith let Alfred have his moment of anger and allowed his tantrum, but then she laid down the law. Alfred may be the king, but Judith is the one with the real power and influence over him. I poisoned him. I killed one of my sons to save the other. May God forgive me. Judith Permalink: I poisoned him. I killed one of my sons to save the other. May God forgive me. Added: January 07, 2019 She wasted no time cleaning up her mess and kicking Aethelred's wife to the curb. She made her choice, and she's not letting anyone stand a chance of usurping Alfred. Alfred is about to face a new challenge, and Ubbe has asked to lead the army. It's unclear if the kingdom still has a problem with him, but after he helped them win the last battle, he should be accepted enough to lead the army. There will probably still be doubters who don't trust him, but if they're going to win, he's their best hope. The Ivar/Hvitserk dynamic continues to evolve, and I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for it to come to a head. The anger and resentment have to be building up inside of Hvitserk with every insane speech and empty threat Ivar makes (or with him, maybe not so empty). Ivar keeps rallying the troops, and most of them are drinking it all up, but Hvitserk is biding his time. Now that he's been sent away from Kattegat, we'll have to wait for his eventual return for his explosion to take place.

I said before he would make a good spy; now is the perfect time for Bjorn to recruit him. Ivar: If I can order the death of my own brother, then no one else will dare stand against me. Freydis: I think that would be a mistake. Ivar: Why? Freydis: Ivar, you are a god, and a merciful god will always be more popular among the common people than a vengeful go..

Sarah Michelle Gellar: Returning to TV!

Sarah Michelle Gellar is taking another stab at the small screen. The actress is attached to star in, and executive produce a limited series that focuses on a woman trapped inside her own body. The project in question is titled Sometimes I Lie and will be based on the novel of the same name which was penned by Alice Feeney. It is being developed by Ellen DeGeneres' A Very Good Production and Warner Bros. TV, but no network is attached at this moment in time. Related: The Good Doctor: Daniel Dae Kim Lands Recurring Role With Gellar attached, it sure sounds like the project that will start a bidding war, but time will tell. Gellar stars as Amber Reynolds on the series, a woman who awakes in a hospital, unable to move, speak or open her eyes. While she's able to hear everyone around her, the others are not aware of this fact. With no idea what paved the way for her to end up in such a dire situation, Amber suspects her husband could have something to do with it. The timeline fluctuates between "her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from 20 years ago." "How exciting is this?!? I read this book in one sitting, and just knew, I had to make this," Gellar gushed about the project on her Facebook account, adding: "And how lucky that @theellenshow agreed with me. #SometimesILie ..... but not about this." Gellar was propelled to stardom for her role as Buffy Summers on The WB/UPN series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Her most recent regular TV gig was on CBS comedy series, The Crazy Ones, but the series was canceled after just one season in 2014. Before that, Gellar starred on the failed CW drama series, Ringer in which she played a set of twins who seemingly hated one another. Okay, TV Fanatics.

Cable Ratings: Good Trouble, Project Blue Book Have Decent Debuts

There were some high-profile series premieres across the cable landscape on Tuesday night, but did any of them emerge as hits in the ratings? The Fosters spinoff, Good Trouble debuted at Freeform with a 0.2 rating. This is right on par with the average ratings for the final season of the parent series. We also need to remember here that Good Trouble had an early premiere on Hulu, so the true test will be whether it can stabilize or even rise in the coming weeks. Related: Good Trouble Season 1 Episode 1 Review: DTLA This is a decent result, especially when you consider the fact that it launched right on par with Freeform's other dramas that are currently on the air. Over on History, Project Blue Book Season 1 Episode 1 scored a 0.4 rating in the demo and 2.3 million total viewers. These ratings are higher than last year's premiere of Knightfall for the cabler, so this is a decent start. The UFO drama starring Aidan Gillen and Michael Malarkey had a 67 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Related: Project Blue Book Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot Elsewhere, Lindsay Lohan's high-profile return to the spotlight was chronicled on Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club, a series that focuses on the star as she manages her latest club. Taking place in Mykonos, it got underway with a 0.3 rating in the demo. While it's no Jersey Shore, it turned in a decent result. Whether the show will have legs is another story. The promotional campaign by MTV was relentless, so it is possible that the ratings could dip more than usual in week two. Okay, TV Fanatics! What did you watch on Tuesday night?

Shadowhunters Fans Create Their Own Promo for the Show’s Final Season

The Shadowhunters fandom is not impressed with the way Freeform has handled the show of late, and who can blame them? As if it wasn't bad enough that the series was canceled, the network poked fun at the fans who have battled day and night to keep the show on the air. As such, the fandom has little faith in Freeform right about now. That's why they have pressed forward with their own plan to promote the show's final batch of episodes. With help from the cast, Shadowhunters fans worldwide have set up a "flock to unlock" campaign. Now you may be wondering what you need to do to get some new intel about the second half of Shadowhunters Season 3. Related: Shadowhunters Canceled After Three Seasons at Freeform! All Shadowhunters Fanatics need to do is like and share certain tweets in order to unlock a new teaser from cast members in the lead-up to the show's return. Each teaser finds one of the cast members in a polaroid picture holding a post-it note with some plot details. It's certainly a different way of marketing, but if it raises awareness for the show, then this is a good thing. The first one fans unlocked had the show's leading lady giving some intel on her final arc. Fans who are playing along with the promotional efforts have a lot to say about it, and while it's mostly praise, it is served with a side dose of shade for Freeform. As for which character will be getting in on the promotional efforts next, Baene&Lewis tweeted the following: Freeform swung the ax on Shadowhunters back in June, revealing that Constantin Films (the company who produces the series), lost its output deal with Netflix. Netflix allegedly paid a healthy sum towards the show's production costs, but without that, Constantin Films could not foot the bill. Freeform was not willing to pay more for the series, so the young-skewing network ordered up a two-hour movie to close out the series. "We are very proud of Shadowhunters, a series that broke new ground in the genre world and became a fan favorite,” the network said in a statement at the time. Related: Shadowhunters Season 3 Episode 8 Review: A Heart of Darkness “However, along with our partners at Constantin, we reached the very difficult decision not to renew the show for a fourth season. But as big supporters and fans ourselves, Freeform insisted on and championed the filming of a special two-part finale that would give devoted fans a proper ending. "The 12 episodes will air in spring 2019. We want to thank our talented creators, producers, cast, and crew along with our colleagues at Constantin for their hard work and dedication and to Cassie Clare for her incredible book series. We look forward to the final chapter of this breakthrough drama." Okay, Shadowhunters Fanatics. What are your thoughts on Freeform's handling of the show? Hit the comments below!

Natasha Lyonne Can’t Stop Dying in Russian Doll Trailer

Natasha Lyonne is stuck in a nightmare in the first official trailer for Netflix's Russian Doll. The Orange is the New Black favorite plays Nadia on the upcoming series, an "anti-hero who finds that she is stuck in a loop. She is living the same night over and over again and can’t seem to get out of her own way. She’s troubled, but hopes she is one of the good guys." How would you feel if you were the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party in New York City? The trailer alone shows some of the creative ways in which Nadia's life comes to an end before restarting the day to try and find the right way out. It's all very reminiscent of Tru Calling ... if anybody remembers that Fox series. Yes, it was canceled too soon. Russian Doll was created by Lyonne alongside Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland, so we're willing to bet the series will be filled with witty one-liners and funny scenarios. It also stars Greta Lee, Yul Vazquez, Elizabeth Ashley, and Charlie Barnett. Russian Doll Season 1 will span eight episodes, and all episodes will launch on Netflix on February 1. Have a look at the full trailer below and hit the comments with your thoughts on it!

Best Character - Kevin Pearson Kevin Pearson has had one of hell of a journey, and through all those ups and downs, he's managed to become the most compelling and loving character on the show. Gone is the self-absorbed actor who only thinks of himself. He has been replaced by a kind, warm and gentle man who puts his loved ones needs ahead of his own and lifts people up even when he is down. Kevin's acting career is at an all-time high, but instead of focusing on that, he's been focusing on discovering more about his father and his time in Vietnam. Kevin has not only learned about more about his dad, but he's also learned more about himself and the kind of man he wants to be. He may not get the same attention as the rest of the Pearson clan, but he has managed to become the heart of the show. 2. Worst Character - Randall Pearson This would have been a blasphemous statement to say during This Is Us Season 1 and This Is Us Season 2, but the Randall we once knew is slowly fading away. Sometimes we still catch glimpses of him in certain moments, for example when he flew to LA to apologize to Kate or how accepting he was of Tess when she came out. However, Randall's involvement in the Twelfth District city council race has turned him into a much more selfish person who has become so consumed in fulfilling his own need to fit in with a community that he has completely disregarded the way his family feels, specifically his wife Beth. Randall's need to fix everything was a cute flaw at first, but it has fully taken over who he is..

The Good Doctor: Daniel Dae Kim Lands Major Recurring Role

Daniel Dae Kim is stepping in front of the camera on The Good Doctor Season 2! The executive producer has scored a major recurring role in some upcoming episodes of the ABC medical drama and will take on the role of Dr. Jackson Han. “As a fan of our show, I’m thrilled to be doing a guest arc with such a talented, kind and hard-working cast,” Kim said in a statement. “[Executive producer] David [Shore] and I have been looking for the right opportunity, and we’ve found a character that’s both dynamic and surprising." Related: The Good Doctor Season 2 Episode 10 Review: Quarantine "It’s an added bonus for my character to be directed by our own Freddie Highmore, who’s proving to be as talented behind the camera as in front of it. It’s been a lot of fun already, and I’m excited for the episodes to air.” Currently slated to appear on the last four episodes of the show's sophomore run, it's unclear whether this could become a more regular gig on-screen. What we do know is that Dr. Jackson will be playing the new Chief of Surgery at St. Bonaventure, and it could result in Dr. Shaun Murphy's career being put on the line. The actor shared the following on Instagram shortly after his casting was announced. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Daniel Dae Kim (@danieldaekim) on Jan 8, 2019 at 11:03am PST "Kicking off the new year with good people, good actors, good writing and @thegooddoctorabc! Friends and fans, please welcome -for a limited time only- Dr. Jackson Han," he captioned the post. The Good Doctor marks Dae Kim's first TV role since his high-profile exit from CBS drama Hawaii Five-0 after he did not receive pay parity with co-stars Scott Caan and Alex O'Loughlin. There was some back and forth between Kim and CBS, but the actor opted to move on from the series and became an EP on The Good Doctor shortly after. What are your thoughts on this casting?
