A mishmash of history and modern horror doesn't entirely work

There are many striking things about Salem (premieres Sun. April 20 at 10:00 p.m. on WGN). There is a surplus of gross and gory stuff, plenty of Puritans, and some of the most anachronistic dialogue I've ever heard in a period drama. Apparently the writers decided that the best way to capture the olde time speake of the 17th century is in cliches like "you can't keep a good man down," "he's a chip off the old block,"  "he fights like a girl" and my favorite, "I call bullshit!" Yes, someone really says "I call bullshit," I kid thee not.

Exclusive clip: He shouldn't have put a ring on it on 'My Five Wives'

It turns out jewelry isn't always the answer

If "My Five Wives" (Sundays at 10:00 p.m. on TLC) has taught us anything, it's that juggling a lot of wives is not the fabulous harem of fun non-polygamists might believe it is. In an exclusive clip from this week's episode, Brady realizes he's in trouble when third wife Rosemary and second wife Robyn sit down to have a "safe talk" with him. In Brady's world, safe talks usually mean tears and accusations. Fun, fun, fun!

Exclusive clip: 'Naked and Afraid' meets Sabrina the witch, no joke

Just to be clear, she's not Melissa Joan Hart

Sadly, the season finale of "Naked and Afraid" is upon us (Sun. April 20 at 10:00 p.m. ET on Discovery), but before it goes we get to spend a little time with Sabrina the witch. I'm not even kidding. The woman's name is Sabrina, and she's a witch. And she's naked, but you knew that.

'Scandal' recap: The big explosion in the season finale isn't in the church

You won't believe how much changes in just one episode

Wow. I realize there are only so many ways to bring Fitz and Olivia together and then break them apart, but what's happened in this season finale... well, let's just say no more without saying spoilers, spoilers, spoilers. There's just no way to talk about what happened without them. And maybe with a drink. Just a thought.

'The Vampire Diaries' recap: Can Elena love both brothers at the same time?

Strange visions have Elena yearning for what she can never have

First off, kudos to Paul Wesley for his directing debut. This was an episode with a lot of feels for Elena and Stefan, so it couldn't have been easy bouncing back and forth behind the camera to check the shot. But let's move on. I'm still reeling a bit from all the dream sequences, visits to the afterlife and, of course, Markos.

You know if the host of a game show is "Jackass" alum Bam Margera, the challenges are going to be a little crazy. And filthy. And possibly dangerous.

'Orphan Black' review: Sarah is on the run - but she's not out of moves

The series returns with more whipsaw plot twists and the same high stakes

I wasn't too worried that the second season of "Orphan Black" would stumble at the gate. The first season was too tightly constructed and simply too smart for everything to fall apart, burdened by silly plot twists or the kind of hijinks that have been known to sink big four network series. Yes, Clone Club can rest easy -- the first episode of season two is just as twisty and smart and deadly as we've come to expect. I'd say it's better than "Cats," but you won't appreciate that until you've watched it.

Exclusive clip: Preparing to kill on 'Life Below Zero'

Target practice is just part of it

It's hard to imagine working up the nerve to kill a bear after one has almost killed you, but that's the kind of kill-or-be-killed thinking required on "Life Below Zero," which follows intrepid Alaskans as they carve out an existence in harsh terrain. In this exclusive clip, Sue Aikens talks about her near-death experience -- and why she's gearing up to hunt a bear.

'Life Below Zero''s Sue tells of bear attack, 'being comfortable' with death

What she's been through defies belief

You can call someone a tough mother, but Sue Aikens, one of the subjects of "Life Below Zero" (season two premiere Thurs. April 17 at 9:00 p.m. on Nat Geo) takes it one step further -- she's one tough grandmother. And she's really tough -- fans of the show know that after being attacked by a bear six years ago, she “had to sew my head together, my arm, and then before my hips popped out, because they had been dislocated, I went across the river." There she found the bear that attacked her, shot him, and called for help -- which didn't come for ten days. ” Yeah, tough.
