    For better or for worse, "Game of Thrones" has become known (notorious?) for its bodies—both the number of deaths and the amount of nudity featured on the show. While it could be, and frequently has been, argued that these scenes have been put there on our screens by the show's producers for no...

    Was 'Empire' good this week? An investigation

    Last week, I suggested that “Empire” was back on track to being a watchable show instead of a terrible, convoluted mess. Did that hold true with this week’s episode, “Time Shall Unfold”? Let’s put it to the test. Was family drama at the center of the episode? And how. Anika finally revealed that...

    ABC is the worst, and I have a lot of feelings about Stana Katic's departure from 'Castle' even though I don't watch it anymore

    I needed time to process the news: ABC did not ask Stana Katic, aka Kate Beckett, to return for a possible ninth and final season of its hit procedural dramedy “Castle.” Um, I’m sorry, but what the hell, ABC? I have a confession: I have not watched “Castle” in quite some time. I fell way behind...

    What 'Empire' needs to do to stay good

    Once soapy, fabulous and fun, “Empire” has been floundering lately. I mean, the logo of Empire the company is now Hakeem’s face, instead of Lucious’.
