The Americans Review: Message from the Dead

This show is amazing! I love it and Rhys is a standout for sure.
Nashville Review: Pushed to the Edge
2/14/2013 9:34 PM
Agree with this review completely!! I actually like the friendship between Rayna and Liam. I figured they probably wouldn't hook up so my unmentionables weren't in a twist during the hotel stuff. Her telling him about her divorce rather than Deacon made sense to me. I've come to see them as kindred spirits and solid friends. He has an outsider perspective with no real stakes or expectations. He's just hers...he isn't aligned or invested in anyone else in her circle. Deacon and the double standard. I think most of all he just misses being her confidant. Still love him. He'll get over it. Teddy is the worst. Just ugh. Gunner and co have been more interesting than they were. And Avery is difficult to like.
Chicago Fire Review: Family for Favors
2/14/2013 9:19 PM
I soo agree with serenity and grimmfan. I do NOT like clarice. I think she's shady and her husband, shay and her baby will suffer. I hope her husband gets full custody because clarice is just unstable and it is irritating the hell out of me that they have the audacity to think that they can shut this man out of his own child's life! What is that? He hasn't done anything wrong! He isn't the bad guy or the enemy! I don't care for that scenario at all but Kelly looked adorable holding the baby. Oh Dawson. She was more foolish than usual but it'll lead to some interesting stuff that's for sure. Glad Casey kicked his mom out.
Deception Review: Plan B
2/12/2013 8:23 PM
I like watching the show but it isn't necessarily suspenseful. There is a predictability to it that drives me mad because it doesn't have to be that way. Eighty percent of the time I feel like I can deduce what is going to happen. I love M. Good. I really do but she's the lead, ...she has to do more, have more of a presence than the painfully, cringeworthy, amateur sleuthing that she does. When Sophia makes a bitchy comment and asks why Joanna is even there...I can't even defend her. I'm inclined to agree. If her backstory and her cover story were stronger it would help matters. Edward has become the most fascinating of the bunch. His father too. Sophi still creeps me out at times. Haverstock is interesting although him being mia father was no surprise. And I'd like to see what it's like now that Joanna has moved in with Julian (also no surprise)
Switched at Birth Review: Love Isn't In The Air
2/12/2013 8:10 PM
I loathe the Kennish adults, Regina and her mother are only a tad more likeable...regina moreso than her mom. That is probably why the way they treat Angelo is so frustrating to me. Loved him in this episode. I did figure he wanted to raise the kid on his own. I think it would be good for him and he'd be good at it. Plus the unconditional love.I too found melody's speech offensive and yet unsurprising. It's very common and it's why I hold the deaf as responsible as the hearing in perpetuating misunderstanding and prejudice. The fact is there's a difference between speaking positively of whatever group of anything you fall into and putting those different from you down to build yourself up. I like and feel bad for both Noah and Travis. In many ways they'd make spectacular friends. Noah has to accept what's happening to him and let people in. Travis is doing better at that but Daphne has to stop leading him on. And he's so not an angry guy.
Lost Girl Review: Is Dark Bo Dangerous?
2/12/2013 7:49 PM
I for one find it disturbing that it took until 10:59 for Bo to realize that wasn't Kenzi. I'll never not like Bo but more and more recently it has been clear that she's kind of a sucky friend. How did she not notice something was wrong? It's her best friend. Trick may get a pass because he wasn't around her as much...and Dyson is usually more perceptive but Bo is inexcusable. That actually kept me from really enjoying a pretty good episode.
Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "The Face of Change"
2/12/2013 7:42 PM
-Grey's fray house of frolicking. I love how they still have coed moments like trying to avoid hearing or walking in on people doing the dirty. Also Callie and Webber at the other hospital. Golden.
-Both. Fortunately it worked out in their favor.
-Both the guys. Yummy.
-Go for it. Personally I think April needs to figure herself out before she ends up with anyone but I like the idea of someone dating outside of the hospital for a change.
-Friends! What happen to platonic relationships? They do exist!
Scandal Round Table: "Nobody Likes Babies"
2/12/2013 7:33 PM
-how do you choose? It was filled with too many. Verna and Fitz at the deathbed. Huck telling Quinn why they don't do revenge.
-lol@Carla. Mellie would flip her shizz at that.
-Mellie and Fitz. The love triangle on this show is about the best one ever. Fascinating arrangement they have there. In a warped way Mellie balances him out. I feel like long before their marriage was rocky they were best friends and partners.
-love him but he's too rash. No.
-that's what makes them such a strong force to be reckoned with. Olivia doesn't rob them of who they are. They still question and give input. I love it personally.
Elementary Round Table: "A Giant Gun Filled With Drugs"
2/12/2013 7:23 PM
-so many great scenes it is hard to choose just one. I loved watching Sherlock's reaction when Rhys offered him the drugs. Intense. Also loved Joan clocking him over the head and Sherlock's reaction when he figured out they were in trouble.
-Loved the change of pace.
-Mixed. I loathed what he was doing to Sherlock but he was sympathetic and capable of redemption.
-Absolutely. She's been slowly but surely "earning her keep "and I love seeing how their friendship is evolving and how protective they are of one another.
-Were we supposed to think he would? It never felt like there was that possibility.
Being Human Review: A Hit and a Near Miss
2/12/2013 7:14 PM
When she explained it it made sense. It wasn't entirely selfish. I like the funeral director.Liam has me on edge. I think Erin is a spy for him. Loved the none of us are clean line from Aidan. So true.
Being Human Review: A Hit and a Near Miss
2/12/2013 7:11 PM
I liked the episode I'm loving this season, but I'm over Nora. I wasn't a fan of hers in general. Initially I was just indifferent. Now I just don't like her. She has moments but overall haven't like her since she became a wolf. Her remarkable disgust for Aidan is insane. I mean she actually considered killing him probably still is and living in a house that you originally bought, with a woman who considers you disposable is insane. Her dislike of him reached new heights this episode and I loathed it. It's disrespectful to josh. His friend, his family. And it isn't the same as her relationship with the twins because they were a threat to josh and Aiden was looking out for both of them. I look forward to his relationship with bubble boy. It could be what they both need. I like how happy Sally is. I was annoyed at first with her ghost actions but when s
Elementary Review: In Sherlock I Believe
2/9/2013 2:52 PM
Four episodes in a row that have been spectacular. Three of which in the span of a week. I do believe this show has found its footing! I am loving...the friendmance between Sherlock and Watson so much. They slowly have become real friends. I love that. They care about each other and its genuine and they know it but avoid talking about it. They like being around each other. That's huge for a high functioning sociopath like Sherlock and Watson who seems to alienate herself. I loved the break from murder and I wanted to pummel Rhys. But it was great conflict.
Suits Review: Something Wicked
2/9/2013 2:41 PM
I enjoyed Jessica in this episode. I loved that she's seeing Mike in a better light. I love her dynamic with Harvey which is equally pivotal and correlates with the Mike and Harvey progeny relationship. I loved the return of Daniel and how he tried to play min games to destroy a loyalty that is fierce and unshakeable even at its worse. I loved Donna and Louis getting in on the action. Louis and Harveys scene was one of my favorite ones of the night. I loved the ending when Harvey told Jessica she was beautiful (to compensate for that horrible deposition) and Donna's face. I always seen Donna as more of a sister figure or best friend so the shipping stuff baffles me and when they hint at the unrequited love I cringe because its so beneath such exceptional characters. But Harvey looks at Jessica with respect,reverence, and care and Donna looks at him with love and understanding and the loyalty that shadows them all is mesmerizing. I like that and I like these bonds for transcending romantic hookups and entanglements.
Suits Review: Something Wicked
2/9/2013 2:30 PM
Incredible episode! Loved it! I don't understand the Jessica hate. I find it interesting because she's the female equivalent of Harvey but she catches more heat for her behavior. Everyone else seen bitchy. I seen her unhinged, her back against a wall at an emotional point. Except like Harvey she doesn't do so great with emotional vulnerability so like Harvey she lashes out and gets indignant and throws herself into winning. Like Harvey her pride and competitive spirit gets the better of her. We've seen similar behavior out of him before...and her lashing out at him (who accepted it for what it was) was no different than what he does to Mike. I actually liked the juxtaposition between her and Harvey. It was like a role reversal. She was unhinged and he was being as composed and level headed as she typically is. I thought it was brilliant. I'm one of the few fans that probably finds Jessica and Harveys relationship the most fascinating and compelling.
Scandal Review: Power Corrupts
2/9/2013 2:16 PM
Insanity. Pure insanity. Fantastic review by the way because it is two days later and I'm still speechless. This show is utterly ridiculous. Utterly, insanely ridiculous and yet it is so damn good. I don't even care. Fitz was one character who despite his affair came across as untainted somehow and now he's a murderer. I had that back and forth too when he was making his way to her bed...I mean Fitz would never...but boy did he. This cast is incredible. One of the best casts on television... I mean Guillermo as my lovable psychopathic Huck gets me every time. Bellamy is so brilliant at playing Mellie. Kerry, Josh...love this cast. I look forward to seeing what Fitz and Mellie look like, how Olivia copes with losing her diabolical motherfigure, questioning the morality of Cyrus her father figure, and losing her love. And Scott Foley is coming to town Can't wait!

The Vampire Diaries Round Table: "Into the Wild"
2/9/2013 2:00 PM
-zzzzzzzz.... I'm sorry, did someone say something? I'm with you Leigh.That may work better than Ambien. Umm...Klaus said something witty in that delicious voice of his with the equally as delicious accent. And he face acted like a Boss.
-Seriously? That's a legitimate question? I think not.
-No. Why would he? He's damn near top of the food chain for fudge's sake. But he probably will be forced to somehow so there is that.
-No. But I kinda want to see it anyway. Even though Caroline totally sucks again. Season 4 Caroline =Season 1 Caroline with fangs.

Thank you Matt. I am in complete concurrence with everything you said. It was by far the weakest episode of the season so far.
Daniella Pineda: Cast on The Originals!
2/6/2013 8:08 PM
@drich 61 If I may can I give you a mini history lesson? I assure you I'm not being rude here. The unfortunate thing about teaching black history or most history in general in school is that they don't teach you everything. It could still make historical sense. Not every black person in America was a slave during that time. Also, ready for this one? There were in fact black people on American soil prior to slavery. They used to work side by side with other immigrants no problems before the slave trade became a thing. There used to be a whole city of wealthy black people before it was burned down. Also in Louisiana there used to be a small population of educated biracial and blacks that were separate from those in slavery. Mostly composed of descendants of those here prior to slavery. So no, it isn't historically impossible and now that Marcel is in fact cast as a black /mulatto maybe we'll see what the background story is. Just my 2¢. :)
Charles Michael Davis to Star as The Originals' Klaus Protege
2/6/2013 7:49 PM
@Sa'ad how is Marcel not an appropriate name? They are in New Orleans. Heavily Cajun and Creole. French names for all ethnicities are common there. It's a common name for blacks in that area too. Also, maybe she did, maybe she didn't but having a little color in show that is supposed to be taking place in a very diverse location isn't bad and makes sense. Twice so far for him and with the latina. Finally!
I know some are already questioning the believability but whether people realize it or not, there were blacks that weren't slaves. There were blacks here before slavery even began. There was a population of biracial individuals who were free in those parts as well. So if it turns out that he wasn't a slave (because he could have came after slavery, don't know why people are assuming he's that old) it would still make sense.

Lol! He plays his brother's character!! Awesome!! I love the Hodge boys and I'm happy to see him in something new. Sounds promising.
Scandal Round Table: "Truth or Consquences"
2/5/2013 2:10 PM
-When Huck visited, plopped right on the bed like he owned the place,and as usual offered to kill someone for her. Huck is one of my favorite characters anyways but I will ALWAYS love the special friendship and bond he has with Olivia. They trust each other implicitly. Its my fave platonic relationship above Mellie and Cyrus.
-A new player.
-I don't really care! Like Sophie on Leverage...I don't really need to know. Huck Finn works for me!
-Yes. It's a little grey tinged at times but her intentions are what matters.
-I think she already knows.
Suits Review: Daddy Issues
2/3/2013 1:28 AM
While Louis and Katrina were amusing it rubbed me the wrong way. I get why Harvey, Donna, Jessica, and Mike are the way they are with Lois. It's complicated. Some of them communicate a certain way there is a history, good natured teasing, filling respective roles, sibling like jesting with the nobody messes with my annoying brother but me...rooted in respect thing. Katrina is new to the game. Respect the pecking order. Hell despite everything even Mike has to respect it to some degree. So I kept thinking who the hell does she think she is? And have at least one person leave Louis alone. Still don't care for Rachel though her relationship with her father was interesting and it was nice seeing her interact with Harvey for a change. LOVED the Harvey/Mike scenes Harvey /Jessica scenes and Donna. All of them were so humorous.
Daniella Pineda: Cast on The Originals!
2/3/2013 1:14 AM
@youngman your post amused me to no end and I hate to say it but I concur. My sentiments exactly.
@KE for me personally the problem I had with TVDs pattern of black witches was the fact that witch became synonymous with supernatural slave and it went unaddressed. If they gave a reason or an iota of backstory as to what the correlation is it would have been really interesting. But they didn't and then to make matters worse they out of nowhere threw in a random white warlock that came after Elena that time and injured mayor Lockwood by sending her tumbling down the stairs with his powers. Can't recall if he was Elijah's warlock or Klaus' I think he was Klaus. Then they threw in Esther but I got the impression she learned from the black witch with them.So they set up a precedent than stopped it all unexplained. I'm appreciative of the Hispanic actress but I hate that they set something in motion never explained, then conveniently dropped it
Do No Harm Review: A Mild Premiere
2/1/2013 11:46 PM
Agree with the review and @Joeful. I hear you! Psych major myself. I'm a total psych nerd.
Typically I like seeing DID stories where the alter is making up for something the host is lacking. What happened to J Cole where his mind felt compelled to protect him with the likes of Ian? Ian seems like an immature frat boy. Maybe the idea being Jason needs to loosen up aand live a little but why is Ian so hellbent on actually destroying Jason? I like the idea of them complementing each other mord, of them having this temporary truce and benefiting one another reluctantly. OR let Ian be as pure evil as they want us to believe but aren't showing us I thought it was fun and the actor is good. Tough night though. Up against Scandal and Elementary. They have to polish a few things. I agree
