Scott Foley Promoted to Scandal Series Regular
6/14/2013 11:22 PM
I'm excited. I love Scott Foley and I enjoyed Jake as a character. I was so sad when he ended up in the hole. He was a great third point in the love triangle.
Chicago Fire Season 1 Report Card: A
6/12/2013 9:49 PM
You couldn't have told me in the beginning that this show would be this great. I agree with this.
-Best: A Coffin That Small. That was an incredible episode. Casey confronting the dealers. That sweet kid. That salute was one of the best moments on television.
-Best Character: Severide and Casey. Agreed.
Honorable Mention. Definitely Boden. Agreed.
Worst :Cruz. Mills during the second half of season.
-Anything Boden says.
Switched at Birth Review: Families Unite
6/11/2013 8:02 PM
Bay is no picnic, and I say that as a Bay fan, but she really does always get the short end of the stick. I'm hopeful that maybe now she and regina can bond because they haven't really since the beginning. It's so unfortunate because she desperately seeks out a connection with someone and always feels like an outsider. I don't like the Kennishes. I really don't. I've tried to but they're snooty and entitled, judgmental, arrogant, and so much more. I'm not a huge Regina fan but at least she's more tolerable. Daphne has become just like them which sucks. I love Emmett. Love Travis and their bromance. The new Brit guy was hilarious. I really loved Ty being back. I smell a PTSD storyline. I look forward to him being on. Ugh Kathryn has 2 girls to harass, the wedding is about the bride, not the groom. The nerve of her to get all huffy.
The Client List Review: High Alert
6/10/2013 1:21 PM
Sleep with her husband and its when she has a houseful of kids who tend to get up in the middle of the night during sleepovers, two concerned friends, and an unlocked bedroom door? Seriously?! I just can't ...ugh. Now a 2hr season finale. This is not the kind of show worthy of a 2hr finale. I really don't know what happen with this show but it's ...uggh.
The Client List Review: High Alert
6/10/2013 1:17 PM
What happen? There is very little quality storytelling. Hell there is little storytelling period. It's becoming a chore to watch. I watch out of an unfortunate obligation to see things through and boredom. Unless cowboy was a sleeper spy in on taking Riley down, he and Selena’s relationship is plotless filler. I've said all I can say about JLH and the Kyle stuff. It would have been nice if they took longer to redeem his character so it wouldn't have felt so ridiculous when he did an abrupt 180. Riley and the writers have essentially let Evan go. I can't even see him onscreen without cringing over his lackluster strictly sexual relationship with his partner and the fact that he's graduated from the academy and been promoted twice all in 1 month. Plot device is what he's become. A real shame. Riley is just mind numbingly stupid running this business and dealing with this list debacle.It's painful to watch. Was I the only one turned off that she finally wants to sleep with her husband and she does it with a houseful of kids, two concerned friends, and an unlocked bedroom door? Seriously?! I just...ugh. and now a 2hr finale. This is not a show worthy of a 2hr finale.
Scandal Season 2 Report Card: A+
6/8/2013 12:27 AM
-752. That episode took me places. It was incredible. From the Huck background, the interaction between him and the other gladiators as they tried to pull him out to the revelations. Someone. Any freaking one. Give Guillermo Diaz an Emmy. All the Emmys.
-Can't even pick one.
-HUCK.Not only is he my favorite but he's the most complex and intriguing. Again I say Guillermo Diaz NEEDS an emmy for this role.
-Edison. He was insufferable. Most of the time be it an antagonist or not their characters are spectacular. Charlie? Billy?Hollis? Jake? Love them. Edison was lackluster.
-Oluck. Olivia and Huck have had me since season one. They're both beautifully broken people. They are kindred spirits. I love their scenes together.
-James and Cyrus. It's mostly James.oy.
-More David. The return of Jake. Cyrus running. Abby and Harrison backstory. More Harrison in general. Info on Olivia and her father. The fallout or Huck and crazy torture loving. Quinn.
The Client List Review: Prostitution is Bad
6/3/2013 2:02 PM
If JLH sings ONE more time on this bloody show.... Don't get me wrong, her voice isn't bad. She's a beautiful woman. She's an ok actress. I never had a problem with her. This show right now feels like it's specifically designed to stroke her ego. The storylines and plots are falling by the wayside. Some things aren't even making sense or cohesive. There is a constant need to suspend belief and continuity issues up the wazoo. Kyle is a completely different character. Inexplicably so, and it feels like they're trying too hard to make us like him (maybe because of personal connections with JLH) and not just letting stories flow organically. Evan is just there. I'm over selena and the cowboy because nothing is coming from it. Where is the storytelling?
Criminal Minds Season 8 Report Card: B
6/2/2013 11:38 AM
-the two parted. Zugwag. And Restoration.
-Everything else? It's hard to pick bad episodes because most of the season just seemed mediocre. Like it drifted by. There was one that I fell asleep on because it was so confusing and uninteresting but I've blocked it out so can't remember the name.
-Rossi and Reid. Rossi was very supportive this season and Reid continues to mature.
-Blake. Here's the thing, I never liked Prentiss (or JJ) so it has nothing to do with that. Blake has no presence. At all. She's just ...there. I'd rather she not be. She's a colossal bore. It's not even that I dislike her. I just don't care..
-Strauss' final scene with Hotch. They've always had a tumultuous relationship so it was a beautiful closure.
-I'd like more character centric episodes. I'd love for Reid to actually be happy. The Maeve stuff was a tease and then she tragically got killed. I'd love a return of a past unsub. It'd be nice to see Jordan Todd again or Elle, connected to a case somehow.
Unlucky In Love: Our Advice for Emma Swan
5/28/2013 2:32 PM
I miss Graham. I thought August was a sure thing. Then I figured she had a weird and twisted chemistry with the Mad Hatter. Then there was Hook and Neal returned. I guess given the circumstances with some dead, others children and Sebastian Stan not coming back for the foreseeable future I'll go with Neal.
CBS Releases 2013-2014 Schedule, Moves Person of Interest to Tuesdays
5/15/2013 12:14 PM
Trying to balance out their dramas with comedies is bold. Possibly dumb, but definitely bold. I think there is merit in sticking to what you do best. Like procedurals. While I'll definitely watch the entire prime time block on Tuesdays. I liked Person of Interest on Thursdays.
NCIS: Los Angeles Review: Betrayal with Torturous Consequences
5/15/2013 12:07 PM
I agree that for this show the torturing was gratuitous, but I watch shows like Criminal Minds and The Following so it wasn't anything I couldn't handle. I also agree that it was torture to leave us that way. Gah!! Deeks is my favorite character. I get the depth and complex nature of his character that some don't take the time to notice,like Tony on NCIS. It always frustrates me when despite everything he's always the butt of everyone's jokes, but Sam was brutal and unnecessarily cruel. I don't understand it. Goofball (though we know that's a façade) or not he's always been damn good at his job and never gave anyone reason to question that. I don't doubt he can withstand the torture because he's loyal like that. I'm under the impression Hetty split them up again after she let Deeks know that she was aware of his feelings for Kensi with that note.Loved the kiss. It was rushed and bittersweet but nice. Wonder if Michele will make it? Can't wait for next season.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "The Originals"
4/27/2013 10:58 AM
-I am forever and always an Elijah fangirl. I enjoyed he, Klaus, and Marcel in this episode but Elijah was killing it. That freaking entrance...ripping the heart out and the way he adjusted his suit afterwards. The snarky comment about New Orleans. The pep talks. That air of confidence and nobility. Elijah is soo sexy.
-I feel like a horrible person, but I'm still actively wishing the baby isn't to be. Denial. Because that's what I'm in.
-Who? Oh yeah. You uh, were kinda...r.I.p
-sure. Either way both shows have to work to give her something but...Family is everything in The Originals.
-Marcel hands down. I am beyond intrigued.
-They did. I'm thrilled.
The CW Picks Up The Originals for Series, Renews Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast
4/27/2013 10:47 AM
Thrilled for The Originals. Love Morgan and Gillies too much to not have them onscreen. I think pairing them up with TVD for some back to back action will be beneficial to both.
The Vampire Diaries Review: Til His Kingdom Comes
4/26/2013 2:01 PM
The only thing I absolutely abhorred about this was Hayley. No offense to Phoebe Tonikin but Hayley just isn't an interesting character. Not at all. I felt like they were forcing her to be relevant just because of who played her and now, now I totally did a facepalm. Daniel is amazing. Always. Elijah is easily my favorite character of the show and he could sell me on anything. As much truth and character introspection that came tumbling out of his mouth he could never convince me to be okay with this supernatural pregnancy. He just can't. The Mikaelson quest for love and family has always been what I've adored about them but using that to make us accept this Hayley stuff feels manipulative. I loved everything else though. Joseph Morgan's talent is unparalleled in my eyes. He takes me places and makes me feel things when I watch him. I loved the intro to Marcel. I feel like this can be a darker, deeper, more mature series compared to its origin. That's refreshing. I look forward to more.
Person of Interest Review: The Storm is Here
4/26/2013 1:47 PM
@Amanda I don't know if Carter and Reese have romantic tension, not to me anyways. There is a flirtiness and fun banter that they have. Unlike others I won't tell you you're imagining something just because you have a different perspective, and I'm sorry that others say as much. I have noticed the distance between Carter and John since the prison break. I don't like it either because they have such a fun relationship to me. I like seeing them interact. But there has been an overall distance between the cops and the vigilantes and I kinda hate it. It's like two different shows sometimes with Fusco and Carter in one part and Finch and Reese in another.I know I'm in the minority but Carter and Fusco are just and integral and intriguing to me as the boys. I have that there is a reason for that, but I miss those interactions. I'm typically indifferent with ships. I wouldn't hate Carter and Reese if done right. Just like I don't mind Zoe and John as long as it's subtle.
The Client List Review: Give Them Something To Talk About
4/16/2013 1:58 PM
Yeah, I hated that this entire episode seemed orchestrated to let J Love sing...and sing....and sing. I hate the way she's been treating Evan. He's been her support and co-parent for over a year, he'd been an exemplary and involved uncle prior to that. She's trying to cut him out completely as though he hadn't been involved since the beginning. The kids notice that. Ugh she's being a pain. It isn't fair to her children that she's keeping him at bay like that. I actually like Evan's partner or whatever. I think shes good for him while Riley works out whatever she's doing with kyle, who I don't detest as much as I used to.
The Americans Review: Ultimate Sacrifice
4/11/2013 5:58 PM
Fantastic episode. It was definitely a more subtle more subdued episode. The emotions and tension for all the characters spoke for itself. It actually allowed the viewer to connect and mourn for these characters who died. That was brilliant and beautiful writing as a result. I did not expect Gregory to die anytime soon and it took my breath away when he did. Such an interesting character. I hated to see him go but I respected it too which brings about the wonder of amazing writing. Great writing allows one to relate and feel for complex characters whom we probably shouldn't relate to. I was sad for the loss of Gregory and the innocence of Vlad. This show is incredible.
Scandal Round Table: "Molly, You in Danger, Girl"
4/9/2013 3:30 PM
-How does one choose in such an action packed episode. I'm still walking around saying gladiators in helmets so that wins on default.
-I'm probably biased because I adore Scott Foley but I'm still not sold that he's a bad guy even though he's as creepy as he is charming.
-I.Have.NO.Idea. I love this show. I don't even try to come up with theories anymore!
-5. Honestly, we always give better advice than we ourselves practice. That's why even shrinks have shrinks. It's easier advising someone else on how to get their life together than it is getting your own life together.
-David. I've been loving reluctant but honorary OPA David.
TV Fanatic Round Table: Spinoff Showdown!
3/29/2013 3:53 PM
Its going to be interesting seeing what happens to TVD once the originals are gone. I get that its the opportunity to trim the fat with a cast the size of Texas which TVD desperately needs to do, while still giving the audience these beloved characters whom dare I say rival the shows leads for being fan favorites. Joseph Morgan should be considered a breakout star at this point. He's tremendous. Daniel Gilles is incredible. Both their characters are so intriguing. And Claire Holt certainly holds her own. For those reasons I find myself both wary and excited for The Originals. Out of all the spinoffs being announced this year (entirely too many if you ask me) that one actually makes sense to me and has me intrigued.
Grey's Anatomy Review: One Hell of a Night
3/29/2013 12:26 PM
I loved this episode. I especially appreciated the Kawasaki's Disease storyline because it hit close to home. My mother went through the EXACT same thing with my brother when he was a kid. They kept turning her away and claiming nothing was wrong and even threatened to report her. When they finally considered that as a possibility that wanted to rule it out because he was one symptom short. If she hadn't persisted he would have died. So I truly appreciated that part of the episode. I loved Owen with the kid even though it made me sad for him since Yang doesn't want any. Great scene with Mer, Bailey, and Zola at the end. Callie's part didn't fit but they probably felt obligated to show her. Jo's bf didn't annoy me initially but now he sucks. I'm glad Avery and April are back to the friendship. They always had a sibling vibe to me personally.
Scandal Review: Heroes and Villains
3/29/2013 12:16 PM
All the speeches. All of them were fantastic. Jake. Mellie. The five Cyrus got because Jeff Perry is a master at delivery. Olivia. My precious Huck. The writing in this show is out of this world. Love it so much. This episode was awesome. I called Hollis' daughter having some role in her own kidnapping so his antics and nonchalance thru half the episode was amusing. But that ending when she took the money and he looked crushed? I sympathized with the devil. And that is what I love about the characters on this show. So much grey...even the evil characters aren't really evil. The heroes aren't perfect. Huck and Quinn. I love it. She's giving him a purpose.he's all proud papa. And he's making her likeable because she was always the weakest character. Loved David just hanging around I'd love it if it were permanent even if he would come across as a new Steven. I'm so confused about Jake but I'm loving every second of it. Rebound or not.
The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Because the Night"
3/23/2013 10:51 PM
-B!tchy Klaus. He basically told Caroline to eff off and find someone who cares since it clearly can't be him. Her face crumbled. It was kind of awesome.
-I gotta say, I'm loving Bex and Evilena. They're wicked awesome together now. I love my Salvator bros especially when they join forces, but I don't want Elena to be "cured "
-No. I lost respect for her and found her annoying. It was also an unnecessary point to tie in with the current happenings of the episode. Like Caroline, they've sucked the awesome out of her.
-Damon. Essentially all Damon needs is unconditional love.He's been broken since before he became a vampire. You give him that and he's yours.
-No role. It always frustrates me how horribly they write the sole minority on this show.
Nashville Review: Dog Days Aren't Over
2/28/2013 12:50 PM
Loves me some Deacon. The entire birthday thing was the cutest. When Juliette is somehow involved with interacting with Deacon that is about the only time she's likeable. He tends to have that effect on most. I'm typically disinterested in the kids. They just don't always have anything solid but I really felt for Gunnar losing his brother. He'll feel guilty and that'll eat away at him. I suspect he'll lash out at Scarlett too even though they're having grief sex..which made me cringe. I'm not all that into Avery or his story either. That was a bold move Teddy made. He is such an ass.
Switched at Birth Review: A Path Divided
2/26/2013 2:10 PM
Daphne was a better voice for their cause than Melody. On some level I actually understand Melody's point...there is one deaf school in our area. No one even knows about it until that moment when it somehow affects them...be it a relative or a friend with hearing loss. It's their only space. However, Melody just flat out hates hearing people which makes her position in the school all the more frustrating because she's toxic. Expanding the hearing program would have been unfortunate but it didn't have to be bad. The hearing kids attending seem to be those with relatives who are deaf or are in danger of losing their hearing themselves. It wouldn't have been a matter of bringing in random hearing kids with no interest or reason for attending a deaf school. And it would have been up to them to assimilate. I'm tired of Toby too. Bay overstepped in how she dealt with Regina and Regina is just a mess right now. Didn't miss John. Do miss Angelo and I like Zane. Love that Travis finally has a place to stay.
Scandal Round Table: "Boom Goes the Dynamite"
2/26/2013 1:45 PM
Lol! Love the answers
-I have to go with Jake trying to win over Olivia. He isn't intimidated by her, he doesn't just goalong with her. He tries to make her laugh and tries to respect her privacy as much as he can while still doing his job.
-A shady government official? Is that ever shocking? Jake and Fitz.
-Now that Olitz is on the fritz., Fitz has flipped his sh!tz. He's not on my good side for now. It would help if he put down the Bourbon and stopped acting psycho. Jake is still creepy just not as creepy and my crush on Scott Foley prohibits me from not liking his character.lol
-She's resourceful and diabolical. She'll find something.
-I don't like the spotlight or having my privacy invaded.Nothing... I think.
