'We'll Always Have Paris' and 'Waiting for Superman'

It’s weird watching Red Band Society knowing it most likely won’t be returning, especially since the last three episodes were filmed and edited before the creative team knew it. Going in, we know that there will be cliffhangers and unconcluded storylines. For a terribly curious person like myself, that is torturous. And yet, as I am very curious, I have to watch these final episodes.

'The Guilting Age'

Hey there Red Banders, Red Band Society is back, full of tear-jerking moments, Dash’s wayward fashion advice, and Leo’s longwinded speeches. It’s been a while, and I’m sure we’re all glad that while the future of this show doesn’t bode well, we at least get to see what happened after “What I Did For Love” back in December. Red Band hit a stride tonight, and, in a classic case of too little, too late, delivered on all the drama and emotion the pilot had promised.

Red Band Society recap: 'What I Did for Love'

Red Band Society Recap

Good evening, Red Banders. If you’re a curious person, you’re going to hate tonight’s episode. It ends on so many cliffhangers, and we may never get answers to them. We all knew this was a strong possibility (episodes 2 and 3 were sinkers), but like the RBS characters, let’s seize the day, live in the moment, and continue with this recap with its usual gusto.

Red Band Society recap: 'How Did We Get Here?'

Red Band Society

Red Band’s Thanksgiving episode was more like a Valentine’s Day special: The show used a flash-forward technique to show the protagonists in “uncompromising” positions. Dr. McAndrew has a black eye, Kara is seemingly necking a comatose senior citizen, Jordi and Dash are fighting over a new hospital patient, and Leo is burning his prosthetic leg on the roof. Yes, this week’s title, “How Did I Get Here?” is perfect for this episode.

Reign recap: 'Terror of the Faithful'

Reign Recap

Dear fellow subjects of the realm of Reign,

Unfortunately our Queen Recapper, Lady Samantha Highfill, is otherwise obliged this evening, and I must step in as regent for tonight’s episode. Fret not, for she will return with quill and parchment in hand next Thursday eve. Now, without further ado, let us commence the discussion of tonight’s episode.

Red Band Society recap: 'Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car'

Red Band Society

Best. Episode. Yet.

And hopefully with many more to come. This show is back with a vengeance! Red Band Society was slowly teetering back up to its pilot promise. Some feared it wouldn’t heal fast enough. But tonight, it made a full recovery, surpassing even the quality of the pilot. Chills, giggles, and drivels galore in “Get outta my dreams, get into my car.” (Yup, the titles still need some work.)

Red Band Society recap: 'Know Thyself'

Red Band Society Recap

Tonight on Red Band Society: There was kissing, there was laughing, there was… Octavia Spencer singing! How many talents can one woman have? This week’s episode, “Know Thyself,” (they seriously need better titles) was about banding together with those you need and those who need you. Also, did I already mention Octavia Spencer has a gorgeous voice? But while Octavia may be the sun of this show, she is surrounded by many other great stars.

Red Band Society recap: 'Ergo Ego'

Red Band Society

For those who ascribe to the belief that distance makes the heart grow fonder, then perhaps the fortnight hiatus helped Red Band Society build its teetering fan base. “So Tell Me What You Want What You Really Really Want” ended on quite the cliffhangers: wondering what Nurse Jackson was going to do with Charlie’s blood sample, which bachelor Emma would choose, and teasing us with Mandy Moore guest starring. And tonight’s episode was a perfect follow-up. There’s something about this show that feels very ’90s Nickelodeon (which is a compliment).

Red Band Society recap: 'So Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want'

Red Band Society Recap

As the weeks go by, Red Band Society is on the mend. The show feels tighter and more focused. The characters’ personalities, motivations, and backstories are slowly being fleshed out. The genre-bending is starting to make sense. Nurse Jackson brings the drama, Leo hones the romance, and Kara continues to enthrall as comic relief. The pacing of this episode, “So Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want,” was right on target (save that title).
