Question: What's your take on the new FX drama The Americans? I'm sort of cautiously optimistic because I love several FX shows, but this one didn't grab me like Justified and the others have. I thought there was way too much action before I got any sort of character development — it drove me nuts to have to follow the opening sequence for so long without any context. I also found myself fascinated by the next-door neighbor/FBI agent (what is the story with his undercover assignment?!) and less so by Phillip (the husband), but Elizabeth (the wife) left me sort of cold. I hope it improves with more episodes. — Amy
Remember when Revenge was actually about Emily Thorne avenging her father's death and wrongful life sentence?
When the ABC series premiered last fall, viewers found their new guilty pleasure in watching the soapy, addictive drama that starred Emily VanCamp as an abandoned juvie alum-turned-fearless woman determined to stop at nothing to prove that her father David was not responsible for taking down Flight 197. Although Emily got caught up in a love triangle with Daniel (Josh Bowman) and Jack (Nick Wecshler) along the way, the show rarely veered from its main mission — and that red pen. But has Season 2 lost its way? With its complicated and confusing arcs, the addition of two main characters who aren't very likable — Aidan (Barry Sloane) and Kara (Jennifer Jason Leigh) — and a lack of action and actual vengeance, it seems like Revenge could use some help returning to its freshman season glory.

If Revenge fans thought Conrad Grayson couldn't get any more conniving, just wait until Sunday's episode.
"You'll see with this episode just how hideous a man Conrad Grayson is," Christa B. Allen, who plays the daughter to Conrad (Henry Czerny), tells TVGuide.com. "His actions in this episode really cement the idea that Charlotte will probably side with her mother."

As Revenge's new hunk on the block, Barry Sloane knows his character, Aiden Mathis, may be walking on very thin ice that could crack come February. It doesn't help that creator Mike Kelley says Mathis "may play a part in what happened in the flash-forward with Jack's boat."

Remember when the Hamptons used to be a lovely place to escape to during the summer months? Free of all the stresses of big-city life, free of crowds and crime and...murrrderrr?

Just how long can Revenge's Emily Thorne keep her identity a secret, especially when her thought-to-be-dead mom comes back into the picture?
The last time we saw Emily (Emily VanCamp), she thought every piece of evidence that could prove her father's innocence had gone up in flames with the plane carrying Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe). As she stood in shock, Emily's best friend Nolan (Gabriel Mann) dropped another bomb by showing her a video not only incriminating the Graysons, but revealing the mother she thought dead was actually alive. In the upcoming season, premiering Sunday at 9/8c on ABC, Emily will find her long-lost mom, but will continue to painstakingly lie about her identity to keep everyone from finding out she's really Amanda Clarke.

Revenge's Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) is about to get the mother of all surprises when Jennifer Jason Leigh joins the cast as her long-MIA mom, Kara Wallace Clarke. And just like Leigh's classic Single White Female nut job, Kara has a touch of...
Look up in the sky! It's an actual bird. And there's an actual plane! And there's a hooded figure jumping from one rooftop to another! Seems plausible? That's because in the world of The CW's Arrow, everything — even Oliver Queen's trick arrows — is grounded in a reality unlike anything viewers have seen on a superhero series before.

Let's just start off by shooing the metaphorical elephant out of the room: Arrow is not the new Smallville. Sure, both Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Clark Kent are members of the Justice League, but the similarities between these shows end...
