Halloween is not the time of year when one should egg or TP houses. But when it happens, the thing to do is lock up the miscreants in a box in the ground and then park your car over them.

Or so our unsub of the week believes.

Criminal Minds Season 10 Episode 5 gave us the darkly depressing case of a mistreated boy who became a violent adult, intent on emulating the abuse his father started.

Stories of childhood abuse are never sunshine and rainbows. Since we know them to be too often true and widespread in society, they tend to provoke a lot of sadness and anger. I would question the merit of offering such reality-based stories to the screen for entertainment purposes - except that it's not always about entertainment.

Sometimes reality has to be shown for what it is, regardless of how depressing the subject might be.

And this one is quite depressing. So.... mission accomplished. 

I counted four bright spots, two of which were related.

One was the opening scene, when Hotch was giving Garcia some last minute instructions. The pure joy on her face as she cheerfully acknowledged them painted a picture of a woman who understands her value to her organization, knows she is excellent at it and quite simply loves her job and the people with whom she works.

The second was the scene with Hotch and Madame Bouvier, when he picked up his son's Halloween costume. You get the sense that Hotch knew quite well that Bouvier was hitting on him, though he was careful to be polite and grateful for her help.

The third was the banter that Hotch and JJ shared over their sons' costume choices and Henry's suggestion that the FBI should all use web-shooters. That provided a welcome moment of normalcy and shared pride in their sons, until the reality of the case intruded once more.

The fourth one was brief and it came at the end, when Hotch arrived home to find Jack conked out on the couch, still in costume.

Other than that, the mystery was all about the unsub's cobweb of fear, anger and rejection, all of which lead to him taking his frustration and fists out on his latest victim. You can hate people like this - as Kate and Hotch clearly do - but the cycle of abuse often takes its toll just the same.

JJ: What did he do? Restrain him the boy for a year while he stabbed him and beat him with a two-by-four?
Kate: Too bad we can't do the same thing to that Unsub.
Rossi: Or Unsubs.
Kate: Whatever. I'm down.

The only saving grace is that there are a great many people around who come from abusive backgrounds, who seem to be able to pull themselves out, and make a determination to stop the cycle. 

I felt little pity for this guy, even while understanding that locking him up would only help society to be free of him for the duration of his prison stay. If he was ever to be released, he would need to have a lot of help with his mental health, for his own sake, and especially for the sake of other kids who might otherwise become his future victims.

The show went to great lengths, too, to depict the difference between a dysfunctional family and a few healthy families: the focus on Jack and Henry versus young John Bidwell and his sister Sandra made that obvious.

All in all, as a Halloween show, this episode provided so very little light as to make it oppressive. I disliked it even while acknowledging the truth that it brought: abusive parents often beget abusive children.

What did you think of the episode?  Do you have any thoughts on Kate's vigilante statement to Rossi?  Be sure to watch Criminal Minds online and then let us know your thoughts down in the comment section!

The idea of a handsome novelist tagging along with a beautiful cop sounded like a good idea, and indeed it was.

first clip arrives from avengers age of ultron watch now 169228 a 1414575180 First clip arrives from Avengers: Age Of Ultron: watch now

As well as unleashing the awesome power of its Phase 3 schedule, Marvel has also found time to release a new clip from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, showing the Avengers letting their hair down.

The new clip shows that despite the more sombre tone of the recent trailer, there will still be plenty of joshing and jesting between Earth's mightiest heroes.

Looks like attempting to lift Thor's Hammer makes for quite the party game, with Mjolnir once again proving to be a most reliable comedy prop...

Take a look at the new clip, below…

Meanwhile, the major Avengers news is that a third film, Infinity War, will be split into two parts, to be released in 2018 and 2019. This, presumably, is when Thanos will really come into his own as the series' big bad.

With the two releases coming so hot on each others' heels, both films will presumably shoot back to back, although whether Joss Whedon will be taking the helm remains to be seen...

Now that we’ve nearly reached November, it’s crunch time for freshman TV shows. Shows must begin to step up their game, or they run a closer and closer risk of cancellation. Forever has had a relatively strong start thus far, but it will definitely need to continue an upward trend to have a shot at a full season. This week, a local philanthropist with rich roots was murdered in his small scale New York apartment. His rich parents are shocked, and his high school friends are suspicious. Tyler (the victim) seemed like a great guy, and he just won a humanitarian award. So what kind of humanitarian who is universally loved is murdered with his award statue? Well sometimes that happens when you have secrets. This episode heavily relied on its main players, Ioan Gruffudd and Alana De La Garza, for the meat of the episode. This was a great episode in the…

benedict cumberbatch relishes the challenge in new clip from the imitation game watch now 169243 a 1414603660 470 75 Benedict Cumberbatch relishes the challenge in new clip from The Imitation Game: watch now

A new clip has arrived online from The Imitation Game, in which Benedict Cumberbatch faces down the immense challenge posed by the Enigma code.

Cumberbatch plays famed cryptologist Alan Turing in the new film, with this latest clip showing his briefing from Charles Dance's Commander Denniston.

Denniston is convinced the code is uncrackable, but as Turing confidently puts it, "let me try, and we'll know for sure…"

Take a look at the new clip, below…

Cumberbatch might be making headlines for his recent casting in Marvel's Doctor Strange, but in Turing, he may well have found the character that leads him to awards season glory. It's quite the performance…

Directed by Morten Tyldum and co-starring Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode and Mark Strong, The Imitation Game will open in the UK on 14 November 2014.

We're only about halfway through Dancing with the Stars Season 19, but there have already been some fantastic and unforgettable dances.

Some of the most memorable dances, fittingly, came from Dancing with the Stars Season 19 Episode 6.

That week was themed "Most Memorable Year," featuring dances that were inspired by memorable moments in the lives of the celebrity contestants. Some of the dances were a bit emotional, and some were simply fun to watch.

Tommy and Peta's Cha Cha


In Week 1, Tommy and Peta danced a fun Cha-Cha to "Drop it Like It's Hot," which even featured Cheech as a special guest.

Dancing with the Stars Season 19 Episode 5, "Movie Night," offered the first perfect scores of the season and featured a few more of our favorite dances.

And Dancing with the Stars Season 19 Episode 7, "Switch Up Week," with its new dances and some high tensions, also offered some favorite routines -- and even another perfect score.

But sometimes, the most memorable dances aren't the ones that earn the highest scores. One of our favorite routines, in fact, comes from the first week of the competition.

So what are our favorite routines from the season so far? Some of them earned perfect scores, and some of them were squarely in the middle, but all of them were entertaining.

Check out the photos above to see what they are!

What about you, Dancing Fanatics? What has been your favorite routine so far? Leave us a comment - we want to hear your thoughts!

The significance of May 10, 1994 was finally revealed on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 4!

We also saw Elena find out about her compulsion and make the decision not to have Alaric bring back her memories. Stefan, meanwhile, was less reluctant to move forward in Mystic Falls, returning to Savannah for the foreseeable future. 

Join Miranda Wicker, Leigh Raines, Matt Richenthal and Crissy Calhoun (co-author of "Love You To Death") to discuss all of this and more...

TVD Round Table logo

What was your favorite quote or scene from "Black Hole Sun?"

Miranda: It obviously has to be Stefan and Damon washing the car and Damon drinking from Stefan's flask only to find out it contained squirrel blood. I love it when those two just have fun together. More of that please.

Crissy: Loved that. Also, loved the Alaric-Jeremy scene in the woods. So. Much.

Leigh: It was a small moment, but when Damon, Bonnie, and Kai were fighting and then Damon snapped at Kai and said he may be having a disagreement with Bonnie but if Kai ever put a hand on her again he'd kill him. Bonnie and Damon fight like siblings, but there is a strong bond there now. I was happy to see he had Bonnie's back.

Kai's reveal: holy crap or you saw it coming? Also, is there a way for Bonnie and Damon to get back without him?

Miranda: I knew something wasn't right with him, but killing his entire coven? No, I didn't see that happening. Makes you wonder why Grams sent Bonnie to someone else's Hell though, you know? What does she want Bonnie to learn from being there? If there isn't a way for them to get back without him, can't they just...go back with him and then Damon can snap his neck immediately? 

Crissy: Ya, seems like they should work together and then kill Kai. Though I am enjoying his new brand of evil.

LeighAll signs were kind of pointing to Kai being involved in the magic world, potentially the Gemini Coven. But having murdered his whole family and his power coming from stealing/hurting other people? Nah didn't see that one! I think they have to work with him and then deal with taking him out in the present day.

Was Stefan right to tell Elena that she compelled away her memories of Damon?

Miranda: YES! Absolutely! Thank all the deities! YES!. How the hell could this show have gone an entire season with the characters all having to pretend nothing that happened for the past two years actually happened? So glad she knows and is making the choice to live without the memories if for no other reason than now she's not asking her friends to suffer.

Crissy: Felt like the right way for her to find out — from Stefan. And in that context of his loopy coping strategy against hers

LeighYes! It wasn't fair that everyone had to pretend the last 2 years didn't exist. I also loved Stefan's speech that came along with it, which can be found in The Vampire Diaries quotes.

On a scale of 1-10, how shocked were you about Sarah's identity and what does it mean for her now?

Miranda: When it registered, I went on Twitter looking for ANYONE AT ALL to talk to about it and everyone let me down! (Except Matt who indulged my "OMG SARAH IS A SALVATORE!" revelations.) I'm not shocked by it, but it means she just inherited a fantastic piece of real estate so even if they lift the magic ban on Mystic Falls, Damon and Stefan are still homeless.

Crissy: I loved that twist. Loved it. Poor Uncle Nephew Zach never knew he had a child!

Leigh: Oh, definitely a 10. I mean, it was clear we would know one of her parents, but I had ZERO idea that she would be a Salvatore.

Enzo is being held hostage for information. How will that play out?

Miranda: Enzo is an Augustine Vampire, so something tells me he's okay to withstand a little torture. He's not going to spill his guts. Not before Matt's able to find a way to rescue him and make it look like an accident of some sort.

Crissy: Enzo can definitely hold his own...unless he wants to spill some information. I could see him dropping Stefan's name in an eternity-of-misery move.

Leigh: We all know that Enzo can withstand a lot of torture. He's also very creative with quite an imagination. I can see him twisting things for his benefit. Matt will be the one to help him along with Caroline. Tripp has no idea what he's up again.

19 Shocking Vampire Diaries Deaths


Who will be back for The Vampire Diaries Season 6?

How will Alaric turn his frown upside down since drinks with Damon at The Grill are no longer on the menu?

Miranda: Well, he does have a thing for doctors...

Crissy: I feel like Alaric is gonna be bummed out til Damon returns. That's a reunion I'm looking forward to!

Leigh: For starters, one of these selfish kids needs to teach him out to resist that strong craving for blood. They've all had training, let's get Caroline on him. She's a good teacher. Then he needs to ask out the doctor and get his mojo back. 

And here is your look ahead to The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5:

kevin feige says the avengers lineup will be different by the end of age of ultron 169217 a 1414518082 470 75 Kevin Feige says the Avengers lineup will be different by the end of Age Of Ultron

Kevin Feige has been discussing Avengers: Age Of Ultron, and has revealed that the lineup of the super-team will look a little different by the time the curtain falls on that film.

"It’s like as it was in publishing," Feige told Buzzfeed, "when each of the characters would go on their own adventures and then occasionally team up for a big, 12-issue mega-event." 

"Then they would go back into their own comics, and be changed from whatever that event was. I envision the same thing occurring after this movie, because the [Avengers] roster is altered by the finale of this film."

Meanwhile, Chris Evans has been discussing what comes next for Captain America, who looks to be a pivotal character in the shifting sands of the new-look Marvel Universe…

"He’s still looking for a home," says Evans, "probably a metaphorical home. He’s always felt comfortable as a soldier. And he likes structure. He works well taking orders. But when that dynamic turned on him, he’s now left to depend upon his team, the Avengers." 

"There really is no one above them telling them what to do. They’re kind of having to operate independently. So there’s a lot of leaning on one another, but there really isn’t a kind of clear chain of command." 

"And I think Cap looks for that. I think he’s looking to understand where he belongs, not just as a soldier, as Captain America, but as Steve Rogers, as a person."

Directed by Joss Whedon and co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and James Spader, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 24 April 2015.
