SCANDAL! HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER! OUAT! Y&R! GREY’S ANATOMY! ONCE UPON A TIME! The TV Addict Week in Rewind

how-to-get-away-with-murder-s01e01

Lamest/Best Reveal: While unmasking Wes as Sam’s killer on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER wasn’t particularly shocking, the fact that Annalise has known from the beginning sent our jaws dropping to the floor!
 
Saddest Scandal: Remember when the name Bill Cosby made you think of sweater collections and Jell-O?
 
Worst Procrastinator: THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Jack has put off telling girlfriend Kelly that he’s engaged to another woman. Given that the other woman once ran down a romantic rival, this seems like a situation he might wanna handle… pronto!  
 
Best Public Service Announcement: The Parents TV Council — aka the self-proclaimed guardians of morality — called a SONS OF ANARCHY scene “the most sexually explicit content [we have] ever documented on basic cable.” In response, horndogs everywhere said, “Thanks, I have to check that out! Um, can I get on your mailing list so I don’t miss out next time something like this airs?”
 
Biggest Transformation: After being lied to by everyone he loves, GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Michael dumped his girlfriend, changed his last name and developed a helluva mean streak. Want proof? “Not only are you a liar,” he told his newly-dumped ex, “but you’re an idiot, too!” Ouch.
 
Line That Really Needs To Be On A T-Shirt: Who wouldn’t buy one bearing the GREY’S ANATOMY quote, “Stop stealing my orgasms!”
 
Biggest Hypocrite: It pains us to say this, but Jon Stewart, after spending so much time trash-talking CNN, it’s a major sell-out that you’ve run to them twice in the past few weeks to pimp your movie.  [Read more...]

We Shine the Spotlight on SCANDAL Star Joshua Malina

o-SCANDAL-JOSHUA-MALINA-TWITTER-facebook

Major networks like ABC don’t give 3 hour block’s of television to just anyone, and they certainly don’t focus all of their airtime and marketing to advertise that three hour block.  That is, unless, you’re Shonda Rhimes the powerhouse behind three of the most successful shows currently on the air.  Rhimes has been a power player in the ratings game for many years now, even so, no show has commanded social media or generated as much buzz as her political drama SCANDAL has.  Forget Kim Kardashian, SCANDAL has been breaking the Internet weekly since it’s premiere in April of 2012.  While all of the shows stars have had their fair share of juicy roles and successful and acclaimed series/ films, Joshua Malina stands out among the rest.  Beginning his career in A Few Good Men and eventually moving on to highly regarded series such as, TRACEY TAKES ON, SPORTS NIGHT, IN PLAIN SIGHT, and most notably THE WEST WING.  Malina has had an outstanding career, but his most recent work on SCANDAL is what I believe helped America fall in love with him.  Sure, most of the time we can’t stand David Rosen, the cutthroat, attorney general who is always testing Olivia. (Kerry Washington)  But let’s be honest, he’s grown into one of the strongest and most intense characters on the show, and one of our favorite live-tweeters.  He is crucial to the SCANDAL universe, having some of the most jaw dropping scenes (It’s still too soon to talk about Episode 313, “No Sun On The Horizon.”) Rosen is constantly overlooked; you could say he is the underdog of this addicting and wonderful show.  Malina soars on the Thursday hit, his character is memorable and his presence is necessary.  I had the privilege of interviewing the gifted actor about his work with Aaron Sorkin and about his work on SCANDAL.  Don’t miss the mid-season finale of SCANDAL tonight!

Excited about teaming up with his friend, Barry asks Oliver if he’d like to help him stop Ray Bivolo (guest star Paul Anthony), the meta-human Barry is currently tracking. Bivolo causes people to lose control of their emotions and has been using that skill to rob banks. Unfortunately, the superhero partnership doesn’t go as smoothly as Barry expected. When Oliver tells Barry he still has a lot to learn, Barry sets out to prove him wrong by attempting to stop Bivolo alone. However, when Bivolo infects Barry and sets him on a rage rampage, everyone is in danger, and the only one who can stop him is the Arrow. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) is furious when Eddie (Rick Cosnett) tries to get a task force to stop The Flash, Joe and Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh) agree the Arrow is a bad influence on Barry, and Caitlin and Cisco deal with a new team in S.T.A.R.
