It’s getting close to the fall TV season, so I spent part of the weekend actually developing my fall TV viewing/reviewing/recapping schedule (instead of what I usually do, which is wing everything the weekend before fall TV starts).
So, for everyone who loves reading my recaps and viewpoints on TV (and like interacting with me with my live-tweeting), there’s THE OFFICIAL COLOR SCHEDULE!
(All times listed are CT since I’m in the central time zone) Continue reading The COLOR Fall TV Schedule!
Viola Davis is smart, kind and important. If you’re a Viola Davis fan, you know what film I’m referencing with that specific introduction. Continue reading WOC Wednesday: Viola Davis
Tons of TV news to discuss! There’s so much of it that it’s overwhelming, so I’m just going to limit it to the shows that I recap heavily on this site, Empire, Sleepy Hollow and Fresh Off the Boat. I do recap black-ish for Entertainment Weekly; since I do recap it, let me just state upfront that black-ish has been renewed for a second season. Okay, onto the stuff that COLOR recaps.

I literally don’t know what we’re supposed to make of How to Get Away with Murder‘s season finale, except for these facts:

I think we can safely say that even though there was some kind of drama about Rebecca possibly being Lila’s real killer (which most of the fans had already figured out the moment they laid eyes on her), the best part of How to Get Away with Murder episode “Mama’s Here Now” was Cicely Tyson going Old-School Black Mother as Ophelia Hartness. What a tour-de-force between her and Viola Davis.

Annalise may not be a murderer, but she certainly is a master manipulator. Although it appears even she’s not cut out to carry the weight of this particular lie. Continue reading “HTGAWM” recap: “She’s a Murderer”
As I wrote last week, How to Get Away with Murder is a great show, but it’s also a show whose “OMG” moments last as long as the show is still on. Once the episode is over, then it’s time to go to bed and forget it. Again, this is not a condemnation of the show, but this is just what the show’s like.

Empire has really shown TV networks what a show with a black main cast can do. The series, states IndieWire, has made Fox history, become the first show in 22 years to increase ratings and viewership for the network. In fact, each week, it tops itself in the ratings, quickly becoming this TV season’s juggernaut.
