Scandal Review: Can You Handle This?

Loved that Liv takes on fixing the poor intern that got victimized. All in all, a great episode.

TV Ratings Report: Agents of SHIELD Slips

I watched this show later in the week On Demand and was surprised by the clever dialogue. I found it rather charming. I would never choose it over NCIS but I hope it isn't cancelled so I can watch it as a back up.

NCIS Review: Farewell to Ziva

I liked the new maturity Tony showed in this episode. I hope he doesn't slip back into being the amiable doofus the rest of the season. I do think it is unfortunate that Ziva doesn't say good-bye to the whole team, but all in all I have no complaints. Considering the writers had to respond to her decision, they did a pretty good job of showing the emotional turmoil that was driving her.

Blue Bloods Review: A Two Way Street

My God, doesn't anyone in this family watch Law & Order? Everyone in the civilized world knows you have top have better evidence than a questionable ID to win a case. This made the show seem like Law Enforcement for Dummies. Maybe that is the kind of simple drama people want in Blue Bloods and I should not expect subtleties, but it bothered me that the result was the impression that NYC cops didn't care about civil rights. I wish Danny could be allowed to outgrow the "hothead" stereotype he has been saddled with. And the same disgusted expression he wears when things don't go his way. I realize this show is not The Bridge or The Killing but it could still stretch itself a little.

Hostages Review: Don't Give Up

Just watched the premiere episode On Demand and thought it was far more gripping and well-paced than The Blacklist. From the TV critics I read, it is likely that this one won't survive which is really unfortunate. I just hope they will allow all the episodes to run.

Parenthood Review: This is Real

Loved the ending with the marriage proposal but basically I find this show with all its swirling, combining and recombining relationships to be exhausting. I started watching last season ans enjoyed it, but I think 1 year with this family is enough.

Glee Review: All You Need Is Love

I think I have outgrown this show. Either that or it has outlived its natural life. After the tribute to Cory, I think I'll be letting this one go.

The Blacklist Review: Scam or Second Chance?

James Spader is always great but he seems to be replaying the mannerisms and intonations of his last role on Boston Legal. And I wish he'd let his hair grow. This style makes him look just plain pudgy--not a good look for a master criminal. Also I am growing weary of all the conflicted but highly competent beautiful young women in law enforcement. This week I recorded Hostages and watched The Blacklist. Next week, I think I'll reverse the process.

Dexter Finale Review: Goodbye

Meh.
The site rejected my one word review so I have to add something, but actually "Meh" sums up my feelings very well. The character of Dexter could not have a happy ending. I think all of us who have been along for the ride realize that. That does not mean we viewers are content with the ending. Actually I agree with the reviewer. Dexter should have taken his punishment and died. I guess now we are to believe he will continue his killing ways.
I do wonder if Hannah is OK with becoming Harrison's mother.

Emily Wickersham Cast in Key NCIS Role

Socially awkward. Autism is the condition du jour. How predictable.
