Modern Family Review: Allergic and Illegal

This episode deserved 6 stars! Luke's deadpan humor has always appealed to me. I hope he doesn't lose it as he gets older. Glad Haley is coming back. SHe just couldn't do her part justice as a portable head on a laptop. I was pleased to see Mitchell act like an adult instead of a needy kid, but my favorite moment was Phil deciding to act like a father instead of Haley's pal. This show just keeps getting better and better.

Definitely a shadow. Aside for the grossness if the remains, not memorable at all.
The Good Wife Review: Good Doesn't Always Triumph

Great episode because for the most part it stuck to the law. I agree however with the legal question raised by the rapist being activated at midnight. If that is the case, there should certainly be a case for court martial in a military court. Although clearly the military doesn't want to touch this with a 10 foot pole.
Loved Cary's little quid pro quo triumphs and smiles from helping Diane with her problem.
Respected both Alicia and Peter for the way they responded to Maddie's trickery.
Definitely an enjoyable hour in the classic mold.

Homeland Review: Tailor Made
11/5/2012 5:32 PM
The episode was not too exciting til the last scene when every one got killed
Totally agree that the Dana plot drags down the story. Maybe she and the VP's son are there to attract younger viewers.
Even when the killer at Gettysburg pulled off his helmet I didn't know who he was. He has one of those forgettable faces.
I can't help but wonder if Brody will end up a triple or maybe a quadruple agent. More twists than a corkscrew!

The storyline about breast cancer is so realistic that as someone who lost her mother to the dreaded disease, I can not bear to watch it. All the distress, anxiety and pain come flooding back. They will have to go on without me.
Covert Affairs Review: What's Old Is New

It's getting rather tiresome that Annie has a relationship with every operative with whom she works. I know she told the guy at the horse farm that the CIA wanted her to blur the lines between her personal and professional life, but she is supposed to be able to tell the difference. Lately every operation seems to have Annie making calf eyes with her spy counterpart, and the result is rather demeaning to Annie the professional. She's become the female James Bond, with a love interest in every case. Maybe the writers think that is the way to keep female viewers interested, but this female viewer would just like some good espionage and suspense with a hint of Augie in the background.
Alphas Review: The Final Embers of Humanity

Gary is my favorite character. I am even more impressed by his dramatic ability, having heard him speak in his native British accent. My favorite line of the episode was when Bill sympathetically put his hand on Gary's shoulder at the hospital where his mother had just had a second stroke, and asked if he was alright. "Why wouldn't I be? I didn't have a stroke." replied Gary.
NCIS Review: Are You Ready to Rock!?

Funny, I didn't feel that Ducky showed relief to be back in the autopsy chamber. Actually I thought he showed regret having to go back into isolation after the excitement of working with the team. Only after Palmer's total ineptitude demonstrated that Ducky was still needed, did the old gentleman hitch up his pants and dive back in.
Major Crimes Review: What's Dunn is Done

Love the way the relationship between Rusty and Sharon has grown. That hug put a lump in my throat. When I think back to,kyra sedgwick's flawed relationships, this one seemed so much healthier, based on mutual respect and concern. I always loved the original show for its crimes and it's supporting cast. Now I enjoy the heart of the show as well.

Ok, ok, mechanics of plot were not really credible but the episode had me on the edge of my seat anyway. That Brody is one piece of very nasty work. Kudos for the performance.
The Good Wife Review: Pink Smiley Face
10/8/2012 12:56 PM
I don't think Alicia can be "played" again by Peter. Her years of independence have fundamentally changed her and given her both the confidence and charisma missing before. Clearly she has a totally different vibe from the wimpy wife of the first season. That is why everyone is drawn to her and her judgment. She even made a joke tonight! (About the therapy couch in her office)
Kalinda has always been kinky so her ambivalence with her husband should be no surprise. We are finally seeing the person who is Kalinda's match. Probably why Kalinda took off in the first place. She is very uncomfortable not being in control.
I loved the body language of Alicia and Peter on the bus. You could see a lot of history in their silent looks and gestures. Which makes the previews for next week even more painful. Looks like the tentative peace will be shattered.
Last Resort Review: Where It Hurts
10/5/2012 4:10 PM
I like the actors and the the action on this show but I'm getting a little worried at the number of dramas biased on the premise that the U.S. government is the enemy. One can't be helped in believing that this is true in real life. Apparently idealism and moral principles are in short supply in the halls of government or at least in Hollywood.
Person of Interest Review: Taking Root
10/5/2012 3:57 PM
Totally agree with all the praise. Enough twists and turns for all. No one has yet, mentioned the victim tied up with Finch who turned the tables on Root only to have them turned back on him again. Great drama.
And no one wears a white shirt better than John!
Scandal Review: Cheaters Never Win
10/5/2012 3:49 PM
Yes the acting is good, the dialog is clever, the actors are nice to look at, but this has to be,the most cynical show on network television. Is there no one in all of DC that has principles? I have only watched this show a few times but I always feel like I need to take a shower at the end of the episode. A very sad commentary on modern political life.

I find the Katniss Everdeen wannabe so annoying, I don't think I'll be watching this show anymore. She is sooo sanctimonious and usually wrong.
Bones Review: Doppelganger Hijinks

Loved the stories and tonight's cast of characters. Especially applaud the hope that we might get rid of Daisy. I've never warmed up to her and Sweets certainly deserves better.
The Good Wife Review: Fights All Around
10/1/2012 10:55 AM
So many good threads in this episode. Loved all the different ways the Florek family asserted their power against the crooked cops. Especially enjoyed the viral video. Kill 'em with humor.
Fun to see Nathan Lane NOT chew up the scenery. His usual style is to play a parody of a human being. This interpretation felt so much more believable.
I also liked the scenes between Diane and Will. Two adults who respect each other. You don't often see that on TV.
All in all, a great beginning to a season that could do anywhere.
Revenge Season Premiere Review: They're Coming For You
10/1/2012 10:48 AM
Loved the episode. Glad Nolan is back. He adds just enough humor to keep the show from becoming a total nighttime soap opera. Isn't it fun to have 2 villains (Conrad and Victoria) you love to hate? I refuse to get hung up on conflicting details. This show is just plain fun to watch!
Last Resort Review: Just Crazy Enough
9/28/2012 3:12 PM
Loved the show. Hated the commercial interruptions. If ever there was a program that should have limited commercial interruptions this was it. Every time the tension was ratcheted up, the spell was broken by a dumb ad. This would be better if it appeared on Showtime or Cinemax.
Modern Family Review: The Best Birthday Present
9/28/2012 3:06 PM
I laughed out loud three times while watching, which, considering I was by myself, is high praise indeed. Glad to see they are continuing to reach the high standards they set last year. Emmy winners all! (Actually I wish Ed O'Neill had won this time but at least they kept it in the family )
Person of Interest Season Premiere Review: Finding Finch

Great episode. Love the dry wit. I'm curious why the reviewer gave such a low score when the review was so laudatory?
Glee Review: Hit Me Baby One More Time
9/21/2012 4:43 PM
Excellent perceptive review. I totally agree that Rachel has no sex appeal. She is earnest and determined, but definitely not sexy. The music was not inspiring, in fact it felt like a whole lot of other episodes. I would like to know why Brittany always speaks in a high pitched nasal mumble, almost impossible to understand. I hate to say it, but Jane Lynch was the most sympathetic character of the night. She behaved the way a teacher should. (Don't get me started about Principal Figgans' speech; that was just appalling.)
All in all I have begun to think Glee has lost its way.
