Leverage Review: A Sterling Reputation
9/17/2012 12:58 PM
Love Nate and Sophie's relationship. Rarely do you see an adult love so well presented.
Also enjoyed seeing the parts of the caper through Nate's eyes. Some of it was too complicated for me at 10 PM on Sunday night, but I enjoyed it all the same. Can't wait for November!
Leverage Review: Learning To Fly

Too much Parker. The strength of this show is its group dynamic. I found it boring and also not very credible. Bring back the team!
Grimm Review: Welcome To The Pack Hank!
8/29/2012 7:10 AM
Having just watched the movie "The Vow" based on a real event where a woman lost her memory for the 5 year period including her husband and marriage, I found this quite touching, especially watching Nick struggling to give Juliette her space. No doubt about it Nick is not just a pretty face, he is a fine actor. The storyline about the coyotl was quite intriguing. Will the daughter and her father be able to return to the life they had made for themselves or will knowing the truth change the teenager. I don't expect to find out but it is interesting to contemplate. Next week's previews look and sound great. Can't wait!
The Newsroom Review: To Rise Again
8/27/2012 7:17 PM
I'm glad the season is over. I never thought I would say that but enough with the Shakespearean love rectangle. Too few meaty news stories, too much pathetic junior high puppy love.
I am also tired of MacKenzie's screechy whining. I can't remember the last time she played the part of a leader in the newsroom. Come to think of it, did she ever?
The ultimate insult to the intelligence of the viewer occurred after an extended conversation about Sex and the City. Maggie runs out in the street, gets splashed by traffic going by as the theme from Sex and the City is played and then they explain to us what has happened. Like we were too dumb to draw the obvious comparison so Maggie has to give us a 5 minute lecture on what being Single in the City is really all about.
Some one suggested new writers. We all know that they will get the pen out of Sorkin's hand when they can pull it from his cold dead fist.
Necessary Roughness Review: What's Bugging You?
8/23/2012 7:32 AM
Every week I am pleasantly surprised by Dr. Dani's professionalism. Her responses to the most shocking twists in her patients' lives are insightful and help the viewer as well as the patient understand the underlying issues. In a role that could easily be scery-chewing and over-the-top, she brings a thoughtfulness to the series that makes it more than a run-of-the-mill sports drama. One observation: too bad she can't seem to give a moral compass to her kids but I guess it is often the case that the shoemaker's children are barefoot.
Perception Review: Love and Other Drugs
8/23/2012 7:23 AM
I Like everything about this show except the female lead. The way the role is presented, she still seems more like Dr. Pierce's student than a competent FBI agent. It may be the writing, but I suspect the actor just doesn't have the chops to hold her own in this cast.
The Newsroom Review: Clear Out the Clown Car

Not their finest hour. Definitely too much unrequited love. "Nothing to see here. Move along."
Perception Series Premiere Review: What Did You Think?
7/10/2012 6:45 PM
I gave it a high rating to boost the average. I think there will be several episodes that will introduce us to characters and motivation before the show fully hits its stride. I already got several good laughs from this episode and found the main character interesting and bright like House but cleaner and not as tormented. All in all, I found the concept worth revisiting.
The Newsroom Review: Throwing a Tea Party
7/9/2012 4:14 PM
I sat on the edge of my chair during every scene of Will grilling a guest, but as soon as the focus shifted to the pathetic jr. high fumbling romances, it was like the air went out of the balloon. Come on guys, you can do better!
Suits Season 2 Premiere Review: Protect Your Own
6/18/2012 3:09 PM
Probably the sharpest show on tv at the present time. Great chemistry among all the players. Harvey is such an interesting mix of the superficial and the complex.
Modern Family Review: A Modern Day Normal Rockwell
5/17/2012 6:57 AM
I haven't laughed so hard at an episode in a long time. The metaphor of the family dinner was genius, right down to the final scene in the diner where we see a more realistic "Tableau Vivant."
The Killing Review: Is Stephen Holder Alive?!
5/15/2012 7:05 AM
Always glad to come here and find out what realy happened. With all the darkness, the rain, the mumbling and the meaningful but mysterious looks, I come away each week wondering what I have missed. What were the police searching for in her room? At first I thought they had come to collect Jack but that turned out not to be the case.
Linden is a train wreck and Jack is better off anywhere but with her.
Mad Men Review: Death Is The Only Adventure
5/7/2012 5:35 PM
I continue to tune in to this show like a bystander watching a car accident. It always leaves me feeling depressed and yet I am drawn to it. The only character that gets me out of my doldrums is Roger because he is so unrepentant. I think the rest of the cast is weighed down with guilt and angst all the while they continue to make bad choices.
Law & Order: SVU Review: Dawson's Creep
5/3/2012 4:37 PM
Totally agree with Ivesian that the teenage victims on this episode were not believable. When the show was over, I wanted to take a shower.
Modern Family Review: All You Need Is Love
5/3/2012 4:34 PM
For some reason this episode just didn't do it for me. Lilly's 2 Dads behaved so predictably that that thread was a waste. Come to think of it, that was the problem with the whole show -- too predictable. I'm hoping next week will throw us some curve balls.
Mad Men Review: I Find Your Product Boring
4/23/2012 6:36 PM
Well crafted but honestly, all the story lines left me feeling depressed and in need of a shower.
Law & Order: SVU Review: Blinded by Justice
4/12/2012 5:45 PM
Glad to see the last of Harry Connick Jr.;He just can't act. I'd love to see more of Andre Braugher. He is sympathetic in whatever role he plays. (Loved him in Men of a Certain Age.) Right now no one in the regular cast has the grit to move the show forward. I hate to say it, but i think this L&O will be following its brothers into oblivion.
Glee Review: Two Hot Brothers
4/11/2012 7:17 AM
This episode really jumped the shark. Too many way-out-there plot lines. Sue pregnant is icky enough but now of course we had to be compassionate because of her baby's disability. Quin in a wheel chair with the expectation she will rise in triumph? Come on. And the continuing foolishness of Rachel getting married after high school?? It just isn't in her genetic code.All in all a lame episode . In fact I think the whole show ought to graduate in June and leave us. I do love Matt Bomer but I'll get my fix in White Collar and leave it at that.
NCIS Review: Look to Yourself
4/11/2012 7:10 AM
I can't stand the storyline with Jimmy and his pathetic wedding. I can't separate JLC from her Activa ads. The agency battles were a little too subtle for me. So all in all, a very lame episode.
Touch Review: Together We Float
3/30/2012 8:52 PM
I really enjoy the premise and the way the threads come together at the end, no matter how far-spread or far-fetched they are. My one complaint tonight, why didn't someone unlock the door to Room 6?
Oh, and one more comment: your curiosity is "piqued", not "peaked".
Justified Review: What A Dick!
3/28/2012 11:27 PM
Keeps getting better-n-better. The acting is brilliant and the dialog consistently sharp. I'd give the show 6 stars if I could!
Missing Review: Alliances
3/23/2012 5:08 PM
I disagree with those who think production values are low. I think the show comes across as a very slick production with great scenery. I knew Lussier was not to be trusted since he played Ramon Salazar on 24, Keifer Sutherland's last series. And BTW, Hard Drive also had a role in 24 as Marcus Alvers. I think it is nice that Sutherland rewards his former colleagues.
I found the final scene gripping and heart stopping. So near, and yet so far.
Touch Review: Who Hears You?
3/23/2012 4:58 PM
I love the way the various story lines come together at the end, and I accept that it must be something magic or spiritual pulling the strings (or in this case, the dog) What I don't like is Keifer repeating Jake's name over and over when it was made quite clear, early on, that Jake is not going to pay him a single bit of attention.It makes Sutherland's character look like an ineffectual whiner. Why not get with the program, hang back, and observe which way Jake is headed. Then he would do us all a favor and stop sounding like a broken record.
Justified Review: Somebody's Poisoned the Waterhole
3/22/2012 7:12 AM
I love everything about Justified. (It's the only show my husband and I watch together all week.) One actor who deserves special mention is Walton Goggins as Boyd Crowder. He has created a unique character and elevates the story every time he appears in a scene.
NCIS Review: A Bounce in His Step
3/22/2012 7:04 AM
Just didn't hold my interest. The case was convoluted and not worthy of the attention of NCIS or the viewers. I'm not a big fan of JLC especially since she fills the airways with her Activa commercials. I didn't feel any chemistry between her and Gibbs. I would have liked more of the team and less of the rest of the characters.
