Bones Review: The Suitcase Case
2/19/2013 11:13 AM
Glad to have Finn back. I really like his character and I'd like to see more of him! It was a cute side story, having him caught between Michelle and her mom (his boss, no less!) I am getting a little tired of so much Sweets, though having him champion the little rape victim was good. I also enjoyed the repartee between B&B at the beginning and end! It was funny to see Bones wonder if Booth sometimes let her "win" and then dismiss it, while he just slyly grinned at her. We know he does, so it was funny to see Bones, for all her brilliance, unable to perceive that he does that because he is a magnanimous character.
Revenge Review: I Love You, Too
2/18/2013 3:39 PM
I was pretty sure the death would be at least Ryan (since he also had on a wedding ring), but was relieved that Jack made it through. Was sad for faux-Amanda's death, but I still kinda would like to see Emily and Jack together, so glad that possibility is now available again. Glad to see Emily get her game on again and have renewed drive for her revenge. Still don't trust Padma, and still don't want an Aiden/Emily pair up. Did not realize how attached Emily has become for faux-Amanda when I saw her emotions at Amanda's death. This was a great episode, though, with the Grayson's at their devious best too!

Person of Interest Review: No Reservations
2/15/2013 1:39 PM
Loved, loved, loved this episode--so many twists and turns! And loved the John and Zoe flirtatious moments. Jim Caviezel is so great at playing a badass, cool-headed shooter and fighter, and yet he's so great at also delivering his low-key, understated, but highly diverting one-line zingers. He has that funny little crooked smile when he's about to make an ironic comment or tease Finch or other character. Love that guy! He's got a brilliant sense of timing. Finch was hilarious too as the concierge, furtively referring the couple to an outside restaurant for a better steak, and directing guests to spas or restrooms, in between orchestrating Reese's moves or keeping Mira safe. Juggling Carter and Fuzco too. And dropping in Root at the end to tantalize us! Brilliantly done!
Arrow Review: The Choice
2/14/2013 1:50 PM
This was a really good backstory episode. Not having been a Green Arrow comic book fan, it's really helpful to see more of his time on the island. I liked the way Felicity got more involved and yet was able to hold back from embracing it all--yet. Seems like she's destined to be more involved than she plans to now, but her story is unfolding in a cool way. The more I see of this, the more intrigued I am. Liked Moira even less when she followed up Arrow's mercy with shooting him--almost fatally, no less. That woman is more "morally challenged" than I even thought she was!
Person of Interest Review: The Social Network
2/11/2013 2:04 PM
JAB, that is definitely a possibility. Root and Logan would be an interesting mashup, and a dangerous threat to Finch and Reese! Dreamrose, I think you're onto something too about the recent flashbacks. We still don't know how Finch found out about the back-door, and it definitely looks like Nathan might have gotten in trouble, and perhaps gotten killed trying to intervene in a "number." Interesting idea that it could have been the situation that resulted in Finch's accident. I found this an interesting and provocative episode, and while I didn't hate the billionaire, I wasn't terribly fond of him. I found him shallow and reckless and pretty calculating, using putting himself deliberately into jeopardy to try to discover Finch and Reese's methodology. Loved the "date" for Bear!
Bones Review: Derby Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
2/5/2013 12:28 PM
I liked the episode! I knew nothing about this disease, so any info was helpful. This was something typical with Booth--he is a great guy and one who would want to keep his charitable deeds secret--he tries to live his faith. The conversation with Sweets about living with Bones outside of marriage would be an uncomfortable subject with him--he wants to do the right thing, but he's not going to press Bones; he'll just wait till she's ready for commitment. And he sure wouldn't want to discuss it with Sweets. I loved Bones' support of Booth and loyalty to him; she's learning how to live with this man. And Angie as a roller derby queen was very cute and entertaining. I thought it was a fun episode--true, not the most gripping ever, but fun and different. My derby name would be Roller Queen Robin!
Bones Review: Last Will And Testament
1/29/2013 4:41 PM
This is so much more than just another procedural! I knew they could do this well if they just devoted thought and care to it. The writing for this season has been so good on the episodes designed for this season. The bonus episodes were a little bumpy, but the rest has been so good! Daisy is also in a last place tie with me as least favorite squint, so they need to keep she and Sweets apart now. It was fine to resolve their relationship the way they did in this episode, so as Cam said--don't try to fix it; grieve and move on. They did handle it well. This season has just been knocking it out of the park week by week--I'm loving what they are doing--keep it kicking!
Bones Review: Last Will And Testament
1/29/2013 4:39 PM
Booth would never leave Parker out--as some others mentioned, he's the type of man who would make some special time or attention for each of his children, and it was VERY touching to hear the things he would want to say to little Christine, and how he would want her to comfort her mom, Bones. He understands how devastated Bones would be to lose him, now that she's opened her heart to him. I loved that last part, and how well the episode set us up to see an inner part of each of the ensemble, in their deepest thoughts about themselves and their lives. The review was just excellent and spot on! I love to see B&B having more of their "talks" in the light of their deeper relationship now. I love what they are doing with the relationship and how it's bringing a whole new dimension to the show. I haven't seen another show with a central couple like them move so well from colleagues to couple and keep the show so well on track. This is so much more than just another procedural!

Downton Abbey Review: Goodbye to a Lady
1/28/2013 5:56 PM
I was thoroughly disgusted by Lord Grantham's unreasoning support for the posh London doctor and rejection of the family doctor's pleas on Sybil's behalf. I agree with KansasGuest's comment about Tom. I also half expected him to bundle her into the car too, since he was the chauffeur in the past. Thomas, the valet, did show at least some leaning toward a homosexual affinity when the Duke visited Downton in the past, implying a previous homosexual relationship with the Duke, so it didn't surprise me that he would make a pass at the new footman. He's done that a couple of times already with the poor guy. I admit I was touched by Thomas' tears for Sybil's death, since she had been kind to him, but I still detest how he kept after Bates all that first season. I was also cheering for Isobel at how she sent her snooty cook packing to give Ethel a chance. I don't know how long that will last though if Ethel can't learn to take care of her responsibilities capably soon.
Castle Review: Wild Nights Result in Death
1/22/2013 6:38 PM
I have to kind of agree with Genie. The cases are meh, and more and more seem to be a repeat of an old Bones storyline. They also had one a long time ago with a murdered guy with a website for college girls gone wild. And Becket and Castle are kind of blah in their relationship now that they are together. It's hard to keep romantic tension after a couple hooks up. I've been tuning off after just part of the episode lately. Enjoying it much less than before. You don't have to have them jumping in bed all the time, but they've lost some of the sparkling dialogue they used to have.
Person of Interest Review: Prison Break
1/22/2013 5:41 PM
I'm a relative newbie to the show, but now that I'm caught up--loving every minute! As always the show always takes a twist in a way that surprises me. The end was just another twister! And loved Finch in his "bada**" mode!
Bones Review: Strength In Numbers
1/22/2013 5:22 PM
Well, @LanaSweet and @Stephanie, just go watch Castle or something (although it is even less believable!). There are a heck of a lot of us who LOVE this season and still love Bones and think the show is going in a very good direction, so just take a long walk on a short pier! In TV shows, you always have to suspend belief to a certain degree--my gosh, it's TV! So of course Bones is something where you suspend disbelief to a degree. Jeez! I found this episode very nail-biting, and Pelant was creepy and snakelike as always. He's a little too omniscient, but he's supposed to be very bright and hard to figure out, and he is! It was very suspenseful, and even took a twist I was surprised by when Flynn was shot while pursuing Pelant with Booth. They've kind of implied that Flynn was tied in somehow with Pelant, so I didn't see that one coming, but we've still got a ways to go on the season. I love Hodgins too when he's into his "manic" state, but that's believable with his baby and his wife in danger. You could almost see the wheels turning in B&B when they were hearing of the dangers to Michael Vincent, Angie and Hodgins, and thinking--that could be Christine or us! Caroline made her usual zany remarks, lightening the atmosphere, but showing her caring for them all in her own irascible way. And I positively cheered to see the blood splat on Pelant's windshield and later seeing his wounds! I'm also looking forward to this next episode too, where everyone starts thinking about life and death more personally. It will be interesting to see how each one reacts, and is also a logical follow-up to this week's storyline.
Castle Review: Exes Come and Go
1/8/2013 12:24 PM
I didn't really think that highly of this episode. Sorry, but I would not want to be with a guy who can't even set any kind of boundary with his ex, and Beckett's maturity level has very little to do with that--her good judgment or lack thereof, yes. And Meredith's behavior throughout was just over the top. Thought that the interaction with Meredith at the end was thought-provoking for Beckett though. She's realizing that maybe she doesn't know Castle's inner person as well as she assumed she did.

Bones Review: Joke's Over
11/27/2012 2:51 PM
Lost some there..."a necessary bridge to B&B's new life together, showing these two independent souls learning how to live as a couple. I'm not sure what people really want now. Change is part of life. Over the many seasons of Bones, there have often been episodes not falling into a particular arc, so I don't quite get this obsession Miranda seems to have with staying inside the story arc. I am thoroughly enjoying this season. It's been unpredictable and quirky, and isn't that really the essence of Bones?
Bones Review: Joke's Over
11/27/2012 2:47 PM
I don't know-Bones has always sought to be out there with the "ick" factor, and it's not the only crime show that has a lot of "ick." It's something of a trademark of the show. I'm not at all upset with the break from the Pelant story arc--he creeps me out. I loved Booth doing stand up--I thought he was really funny when he got ticked off. And I thought this episode really did a great job of showing how routine life kind of cramps our "free-spirited" Angela, and her need to break out of the mold for a bit. I AM a little tired of Fisher--he's my least favorite too, but he did fit the storyline. My favorite part of the episode was at the end--we did get more of our B&B moments back, which I love. And I loved Bones' sense of humor about the Sweets' jokes. Emily was delightfully unfettered in her laughter and enjoyment, so at odds with Booth's different sense of humor about what is funny. Last season people were peeved over the baby storyline, which was a necessary bridge to B&B's new life together, showing these two independent souls learning how to live as a couple. I'm not sure what people really want now. Change is part of life. Over the many seasons of Bones, there have often been episodes not falling into a particular arc, so I don't quite get this obsession Miranda seems to have with staying inside the story arc. I am thoroughly enjoying this season. It's been unpredictable and quirky, and isn't that really the essence of Bones?
Bones Review: They're Back!
11/20/2012 12:21 PM
Loved so much of the episode--Hodgins was in high gear, and his fainting scene was hilarious!"You timed me?!" But not so sure about Cam and Aristoo. She IS his boss, and she was upset at her daughter dating an intern, and now she is! Plus she broke up with the Dr. because he was her daughter's gynecologist, so why would this relationship of boss/intern be any more suitable? I don't really see them having much chemistry either. But Booth and Bones working closely together on this case, and Bones going with her "gut" was very fun and cute! Their scene at the end was very sweet too, and echoes their history of end of episode camaraderie scenes in a very pleasing way! Less of Sweets too, which is good, though I agree that I'd like even less of him in future. A little of Sweets goes a looong way! And the Angela/Hodgins romantic scene was a very nice thing we haven't seen a lot of lately--very nice!
Dexter Review: Coming Home
11/19/2012 3:06 PM
Although Ray Stevenson is a great actor--I too saw him in the Rome series as Pullo, I agree that the final bar scene was way too relaxed, and the Deb loves Dex scene was way over the top. That whole story line is truly ridiculous and repugnant. I think Dex is also not thinking at all clearly about the threat that Isaak poses to the children and that is really weird, because he sent Harrison to stay with the kids and the grandparents for that very danger from the Russian mobsters, as I recall. I don't see Isaak forgetting the murder of his lover and letting Dexter's family stay safe as a likely scenario, including Hannah too. Dexter seems to have totally abandoned his customary caution at this point about everyone, which doesn't make any sense--I don't care how much he cares about Hannah. Harry's code and caution was relentlessly drilled into Dexter, so he's now gone totally off the reservation. I don't really buy that. I say good riddance to Quinn and La Guerta, if they finally bite the dust! I never found either one remotely sympathetic.
Emily Owens, M.D. Review: Freaks and Geeks
10/17/2012 12:54 PM
I saw this at the CW preview, and it was totally annoying. I find Emily a character I just want to slap, and the other characters were equally annoying. I do not feel this show is compelling, and the characters are not likable. And I wanted to like it because I always liked Justin Hartley on Smallville.
Dexter Review: Necessary Evil
10/15/2012 1:15 PM
Actually, Deb, in the books had to wrestle with Dex as "necessary evil" in the book in the series I happen to be reading right now. It wasn't any easier for her to accept in the books, and she almost bit the dust during the process, since Dex was sort of hamstrung at the point she needed him to help her with a killer they were trying to arrest. So it's interesting to see how the series is handling it--this mob thing is an interesting twist. I was certainly glad to see that pesky Louis bite the dust--he just didn't understand what he was dealing with! Either with Dex or with the mob! I loved the image in this episode of Dex outside the brick building, squeezed into that extremely narrow, high-walled alleyway. It was a striking image of the tight squeeze in which Dexter has been placed by Deb. Loved that visual image--beautifully done!
