Did the Time Team manage to save the life of Rufus? That was revealed on Timeless Season 3 Episode 1 which picked up some time after the team member's untimely passing, and Christmas got the group thinking about a way to save their fallen friend. Watch Timeless Season 3 Episode 1 Online However, the Mothership made its way to 1848 California instead of the time Rufus was killed, so the team had to take one last shot at Rittenhouse. Another impromptu trip took the team to Korea in the winter of 1950, and they had to help save a stranded, pregnant refugee. Use the video above to watch Timeless online right here via TV Fanatic.

Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 13 Review: Happy New Year

On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 13, we get to learn Avery's fate in Kabul, while Murphy loses her mind with worry. Being a control freak is hard, and it's even harder when you're a mom. It was adorable that Murph was calling all of her friends in the middle of the night because she just didn't know what to do with herself. I thought she was going to take Diana's head off before Miles stepped in the way. That would've been funny. On Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 12, I was commenting on how irritating Diana was, but we see her angle now. She feels, like a lot of women in business feel, that's she's gotta be a bit** to get respect in her position. Avery: Mom, is that a sweater on the dog? Murphy: Benny was cold. Permalink: Benny was cold. Added: December 20, 2018 She's not wrong. Women in leadership roles have to put on a tough exterior. If they don't, they're weak. The side effect of that fact is people think you're a hard-nosed bit**. Related: Enjoy UNLIMITED access to thousands of Movies and TV shows with Amazon Prime Video. WATCH ANYWHERE. CANCEL ANYTIME! We now find out it's just for show, and she really just sees herself as a unicorn. When she connected with Miles on that level, you just knew sparks were going to fly -- and boy did they. I don't think it's going to go anywhere serious, but maybe Diana won't be so insufferable to the crew now. At least maybe she'll stop busting Miles' balls so hard. Then again, maybe Diana will stay Diana, but Miles won't mind as much. We'll have to see. It would work much better for the show if she were more part of the team, so maybe that's the eventual goal of the storyline. Speaking of Miles, this was the second time we've seen Phyllis intimidate him with a look. He looks so confused when it happens that it makes me laugh every time. Phyllis: Geez, you people! Okayyy, I'll have a party. But know that I'm doing this out of guilt and obligation. Miles: Isn't obligation what holidays are all about? Permalink: Isn't obligation what holidays are all about? Added: December 20, 2018 As suspected, Avery got the story and brought it back to Murphy, but that wasn't really in question. Nobody watching the show thought anything would happen to Avery, but he needed a new direction and purpose. He may very well work as a freelancer, tracking down sources for newsrooms. I don't know how that would play out on the show, but it definitely would be an underlying theme that Murphy would constantly lose her mind. Related: Murphy Brown Season 11 Episode 12 Review: AWOL That nervous energy of hers would never let up. She is a mom, after all. As always, it was good to have Jim on the show, and I'm glad they bring him on from time to time. He and Phyllis are pretty adorable together, and I like that Murphy has someone to look up to and admire aro..

Timeless Season 3 Episode 1 Review: The Miracle of Christmas

The Time Team went on their final mission on Timeless Season 3 Episode 1 and despite things looking a little bleak at first, there were happy endings all around. How apt was that final montage featuring "Time After Time?" I shed so many few tears and felt so many feels while reminiscing about all the good times we had with this trio. I'm not good at goodbyes. If you're judging the success of two-hour series finale movie based solely on how many storylines the writers wrapped up in a neat little Christmas bow, then damn, it was a massive success. The writers didn't miss a beat tying up loose ends, season-long mysteries and answering lingering questions. So much information was just dumped on us, and I'm not complaining! Every cliffhanger was addressed and ultimately, everything came full-circle. Isn't that what we wanted from the finale in the first place? Agent Christopher: Listen, when the Mothership jumps we chase it. That's been protocol since day one. What is the point of getting Rufus back if we just let Rittenhouse decimate history? Connor Mason: Are you joking? Jiya: Future Lucy said we need Rufus to stop Rittenhouse. Agent Christopher: Rufus trained you to pilot the Lifeboat for this very reason. The world needs saving. It's what Rufus would want. We need to find and stop their sleeper agent. Permalink: Listen, when the Mothership jumps we chase it. That's been protocol since day one. What is... Added: December 18, 2018 I've seen many fans share concerns about the finale being rushed or strewn together simply to appease fans, but how can we complain when we received this Christmas miracle? Regardless of what transpired, I was just happy that we were blessed with some closure. Timeless Season 3 Episode 1 picked up right where it left off on Timeless Season 2 Episode 10 with future Lucy and Wyatt traveling back to the present to give Lucy and Wyatt the journal holding all the answers to Rufus' rescue. Related: Timeless Season Finale Review: Back to the Future Given their rough-around-the-edges appearance, it seemed like 2023 wasn't going too well for them. No wonder they risked everything by re-visiting their timeline with the hopes of changing their reality. While I hoped that we'd see more of Wyatt and Lucy's interactions with their future-selves, it wasn't possible as the side-effects of existing in your own timeline still resulted in insanity and death. Though future Wyatt and Lucy didn't stick around for long, they did reveal some useful information right off the bat: Rittenhouse still existed in 2023, and Jessica lied about her pregnancy. Many of us predicted that Jessica was lying because if she lied about her involvement with Rittenhouse she'd have no qualms faking a pregnancy. And honestly, I'm glad she did because it made getting rid of her much easier. If she was pregnant, we'd actually have to feel..

Marvel’s Runaways Stars Dish on Season 2: New Dangers, More Drama

The cast and crew of Marvel's Runaways met with reporters during a set visit earlier this year, and they had a lot to say about what's coming up on Season 2 of the Hulu hit. One actor, in particular, could not be more thankful that he's still part of the cast. "I was hired to come in for seven episodes and then die," the James Marsters shared, confirming that he was not supposed to be a part of the cast at this point in the show's run. "Instead, they decided to shoot me and then they just stuck me in a box." The star is happy that his character will have a long-term arc and is relishing finding out more about what's to come. "It's basically taking the character from a disposable bad guy -- maybe the guy that is set up that the audience wants to hate and try to dig a little deeper and find a human being under there that's actually really well motivated," he continued. Could you imagine the show without Marsters? It almost happened. The Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum brings a lot to the table. Marsters went on to speak about the biggest challenge of being on the series. "My biggest challenge has been trying to convince my bosses that the Runaways are the villains," he said. "I think it's obvious and they don't get it," he added. Related: Marvel's Runaways Season 2 Trailer: A Classic Character Debuts But what does co-creator Josh Schwartz have to say about this theory? "Ah! Conceited actor chat," he laughed upon hearing about it. Schwartz, who created Fox's The O.C. also opened up about whether writing for teen characters stifles the process at all. "I think it's part of the brilliance of Bryan K. Vaughan's original concept of telling the story of parents and kids and how teenagers feel like their parents are evil and parents no longer understand why their teenage kids have turned on them and kind of putting that through the Marvel prism." However, Schwartz maintains that the shape of the series is very different this time around. "It wasn't until the end that they ran away. So this year, they really are on their own, and it really is a coming of age story of that first year of independence, of breaking away from your parents and what that's like as well." Added Schwartz's longtime writing partner and co-creator of the series, Stephanie Savage: "We love writing for teens because we feel like those stories actually have bigger stakes anyway." "Kids are so idealistic and resolute in their principles, and everything feels like it's happening to them for the first time 'cause it is, and those are really fun stories to write, especially through a superhero lens." With the series being about superheroes, it makes sense that there are a lot of fight scenes, and Rhenzy Feliz (Alex Wilder) found himself excited that he was hurt on the set. "It was an exciting moment for me, because I'm like, 'I&#039..

Has Dungeons & Dragons Replaced Poker As TV’s Favorite Game?

Television characters love to play games. Audiences have seen characters play everything from chess to tag. Two games, in particular, are very popular to base an episode or subplot around -- poker and Dungeons & Dragons. Although it is based on even older games, poker as we know it has been around since the 19th century -- hence its enduring association with saloons. So when television became a thing, poker had already been popular for quite a while. Early on television shows incorporated poker into the daily lives of its characters. Both I Love Lucy and The Honeymooners had episodes revolving around poker games. Maverick and The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet made poker a recurring focus.

Even when TV shows took us far away from apartments and homes to more far-away locations like M*A*S*H 4077 in Korea or the furthest reaches of outer space while aboard spaceship Enterprise, poker would regularly find a way to TV. Various shows: Supernatural, Cheers, Friends, The Office, Pushing Daisies, 30 Rock, Dynasty (2017), Sanford and Son, and Married with Children had all had episodes featuring poker, and no doubt there are many more shows which have also had poker featured too. Each show puts its own twist on the subject matter, but poker isn't the only game to be found in TV land. Dungeons & Dragons came into existence during the 1970s. Unlike with poker, TV shows weren't rushing to make episodes about D&D right away. While there were plenty of references to D&D and occasionally a game of it was shown, D&D didn't become more commonly featured on TV until the 2000s. Freaks and Geeks Season 1 Episode 18, "Discos and Dragons," (incidentally the series finale) had Daniel forced to join the AV Club, which led to him being invited to play D&D and discovering how much he liked the game. D&D interrupted date night on "Bored of the Rings," The Sarah Silverman Program Season 2 Episode 1. Even the Scoobies took time to play D&D in the series finale of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This trend of creating D&D themed TV episodes has only increased during the 2010s. The IT Crowd Series 4 Episode 1, "Jen the Fredo," is widely regarded as one of the best onscreen depictions of D&D. Community Season 2 Episode 14 "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" was a big hit among critics and fans alike. Its success and creator Dan Harmon's love for the game gave rise to a second D&D themed episode, Community Season 5 Episode 10, "Advanced Advanced Dungeons & Dragons." Throughout its run, The Big Bang Theory has done multiple episodes based around its characters playing D&D. One such episode even doubled as a holiday episode. On The Big Bang Theory Season 6 Episode 11, "The Santa Simulation," Leonard DM'd a campaign for the others where the goal was to save Santa Claus. Now TV shows aren't just writi..

Check them out and then head to the comments to discuss your favorite and what you think it means! Don't forget you can watch TV online here at TV Fanatic if you want to experience (or re-experience) a particularly cunning twist! And beware -- if you haven't seen all of the shows you have wanted to watch yet from 2018, you might want to hold back on reading this slideshow. There ARE spoilers. 1. Time Traveling - This is Us When we found out that the little boy, Jordan, was not going to be Randall and Beth's new foster child, but was actually a kid in the future and Tess was his social worker, it was an amazing twist. Viewers never saw that coming! It didn't even occur to many that This Is Us would flash forward to the future since it usually flashes back to the past. 2. A Surprise Affair - A Million Little Things Eddie and Delilah's affair was a punch to the gut to their friends and family, especially considering Jon's death and the role the affair may have played in it! But it was a great twist that keeps the drama coming with new fallout every week, from Eddie's friends turning on him to Delilah discovering she's pregnant. 3. An Unlikely Addict - Chicago PD Antonio Dawson has always been the level headed one who keeps Voight from going too far, so his addiction to painkillers was a surprise. Even better was the final scene of the 2018 fall finale, which left Eva's kidnapper dead thanks to a drugged-up Antonio and Voight and Ruzek left holding the bag. We can't wait to see what happens next thanks to this plot twist! 4. Blast From the Past - Riverdale Riverdale is always one giant, juicy plot twist! But one of the best twists in 2018 involved a story set in the past to explain the origins of the Gargoyle King. Who would have thought that mild-mannered Fred helped cover up a murder, Alice had once been the most rebellious girl in Riverdale High, or that Penelope Blossom was ever part of the parents' social group? 5. A Fake Death - You The always-creepy You did it again by having Candace turn out to be alive. While this was always a possibility, her walking into the bookstore in the final seconds of the final episode of 2018 left viewers excited and hungry for more. 6. Predetermination - God Friended Me Viewers were surprised by the Fibonacci spiral showing them that all of the God Account's friend suggestions were predicted before they happened! As a bonus, this plot twist occurred the week before the mid-season finale, making fans eager to see whether the reveal would lead to finding Falken. View Slides..

Ray Donovan Renewed for Season 7 at Showtime!

The big move to New York has paid off for Ray Donovan. Showtime has revealed that the veteran drama will be back for its seventh season in 2019 and that the titular character will remain in the Big Apple for the next batch of episodes. Ray Donovan Season 6 got underway earlier this year, picking up with Ray (Liev Schreiber) being saved from a deadly scenario, and starting the process of putting down roots in New York. While it presented the show with a fresh change of pace as far as Ray's storyline was concerned, the other characters are a little more problematic. Related: Ray Donovan: Susan Sarandon Set to Return as Series Regular In announcing the move to New York last year, many assumed it meant that a lot of the series regulars would be let go in order to give the show the soft revamp it needed. “For our show, creatively, New York is exciting,” showrunner David Hollander said last year when the New York move was revealed. “Fashion, media, finance, theatre, culture. It’s going to present new challenges for Ray which means new opportunities for us as dramatists.” Ray Donovan Season 6 was the first without former series regular Paula Malcomson as Abby Donovan. The character was killed off at the top of Ray Donovan Season 5 before the season moved back and forth through time to tell viewers the complete story. Related: Ray Donovan Season 5 Episode 12 Review: Time Takes a Cigarette Susan Sarandon, who initially appeared as a recurring player took on the female lead role and it coincided with Ray's big move. While the show has been able to switch some things up, it has not been able to reverse the downward trend in the ratings. Ray Donovan Season 6 is off almost 40 percent in the demo year-to-year and is currently averaging a 0.16 rating in adults 18-49. These are in live + same day figures, but there are more ways to watch Showtime than ever these days, so it's possible the erosion is less when you factor delayed viewing in.

29 TV Deaths That Gutted Us in 2018

Every year we bid farewell to some amazing characters on our screens. Knowing there are always goodbyes doesn't make it easier and often their exits are downright shocking. From kick-ass grandmas to heroic fathers, from lawyers to gangsters, and even with a few doctors and lawyers thrown in, Death comes for all of them. Related: 17 Most Exciting Renewals and Saves of 2018! Television deaths can be vindicating. Sometimes they're justified. But we've gone through the year to find the deaths that hit us hardest, the deaths that had meaning and affected the surviving characters as much as it affected us. Sometimes we even knew it was coming. Other times, it was brutal and unexpected. Most times, it ripped out our heart and stomped on it. So as the year winds down, we lay these characters to rest as well. 1. Cable -- Bull Our Queen of the Deep Dive, Cable was the wildest card in Jason Bull's bag of tricks. Whether she was tracking a jury member's online buying patterns or faking a weather report, she could always be depended on to shed a smart-alec light on the case and to call out everyone -- up to and including boss man Bull -- on their B.S. With actress Annabelle Attanasio set to move on, we knew Cable would be exiting between seasons but the choice to kill her off was heart-breaking for the team and viewers alike. 2. Quentin Lance -- Arrow Although he started as an adversary, Quentin's involvement in Team Arrow was unquestionably positive. As a father, as a mentor, as a friend, he's been an invaluable resource. His death on Arrow Season 6 Episode 23 was the sort of hard reality in a 'verse full of impossible resurrections that sends shockwaves through the system. 3. Alvin Olinsky -- Chicago P.D. A well-loved character dying an unjustified death. The repercussions for his murder were far-reaching but couldn't bring him back. R.I.P. sir. 4. Monty & Harper -- The 100 They did a time jump and gave us their son as an adult that will be hanging out with the main characters now, but that isn't a replacement for Monty and Harper. Their deaths definitely shattered the audience and with their son Jordan being a main character in the next season, their deaths will linger over everyone on the show. 5. Nicole Walker -- Days of Our Lives Nicole's death on Days of Our Lives was as devastating as it was pointless. Nicole has been a wisecracking, sensitive, wounded do-the-wrong-thing-for-the-right-reasons character for over 20 years, and the show teased a reunion between her and Eric (a very popular pairing) after she'd left for a year only for her to be killed off two weeks after her return. It was as gratuitous as it was heartbreaking. 6. James Nava -- Shades of Blue Harlee had finally found love with the ADA when he was murdered while trying to protect a witness from the corrupt police she was trying to take down. Harlee’s complete anguish over the loss of a love she never thought she dese..

The best television Christmases inspire warm, fuzzy feelings in viewers and give them a sense of hope and love regardless of their relationships with their own families.

For more Days of Our Lives discussion, check out our Days of Our Lives Round Table discussion on Sundays! 1. The Cast Sings Christmas Songs 1984's Christmas episode included the entire cast singing Christmas carols, followed by McDonald Carey and Frances Reid (aka Tom and Alice Horton) breaking the fourth wall to wish the audience a Merry Christmas. What a sweet Christmas memory! 2. Shawn Douglas Gets His Ornament Giving newborns and new family members a personal ornament is a Horton family tradition, but Shawn Douglas is the only character to get one prior to his being named. He got an ornament marked "Baby" when Hope was pregnant with him. 3. A Lovely Tribute to Tom and Alice "Always" was Tom and Alice's song, and in 1990 their children got together and sang it for them as a Christmas tribute. What a beautiful Christmas gift! 4. Jo Gets an Ornament Jo's getting an ornament was significant not only because she became part of the extended family despite having been estranged from her son Jack for many years after giving him up for adoption, but because actress Joy Garrett passed away mere weeks after the episode aired. 5. Tom's Last Christmas An ill Tom spent his final Christmas in the hospital, where he and Alice read the Christmas story together from his hospital bed. Sadly, actor McDonald Carey passed away only three months after this episode aired. 6. Marlena is Possessed by the Devil! 1994 was a sad Christmas for many because it was the first one since Tom Horton and the actor who played him passed away. But the most memorable part of this Christmas episode was a possessed Marlena levitating above her bed. Love it or hate it, this storyline -- and the creepy Christmas ending -- is not one that viewers can easily forget. View Slideshow
