TV Time Slot Showdown: Revenge vs. The Good Wife
6/19/2012 3:54 PM
Thank goodness for my DVR. I'll record both. If I had to watch one Live, it would probably be Revenge, only because CBS screws up Sunday night times with sports and things are anywhere from 15 - 45 minutes late. It's infuriating. I wish CBS would just give Sunday night over to live sports, sport follow-up, or repeats. Running original shows on Sunday night when you can't guarantee a standard start time is a crappy thing to do to the fans and it's why I stopped watching Cold Case.
POLL: Who is TV's Most Dynamic Duo?
11/21/2011 5:29 PM
DeeDee, if you really think Bones and Booth were 'here first', then you need some television history lessons. Before Bones and Booth there were Dave and Maddie and Laura and Remington. And long before any of them were Perry Mason and Della Street.

Chuck and Morgan!
Grimm Review: Brewing with the Enemy
10/29/2011 5:34 PM
When a show gets as much hype as Grimm did, it needs to be better than the hype. Grimm wasn't. I like the actors, but I found the pilot boring and uninteresting. I may watch a few more episodes to see if it finds its way, but right now I'm just disappointed.
Royal Pains Summer Finale Review: Dangerous Divya
9/1/2011 12:54 PM
I did see the Divya thing coming. She's been yawning, tired, working two jobs, and upset about her family stuff for episodes now. That leads to sleep deprivation and errors and, in her field, errors are really bad stuff. Really bad stuff = conflict, the lifeblood of television shows. I feel bad for her. She's had a really rough time and this won't help. I think she'll take it even harder since she's always so fastidious and it's not like her to make mistakes.
What I didn't see coming was the General seeing and appreciating how capable Evan can be or that shock therapy no longer resembled One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
The Nine Lives of Chloe King Season Finale Review: Oh Mai God!
8/17/2011 10:08 AM
Elanor, the idea that a show should be written based on what is trending on Twitter disgusts me. Maybe Alek is trending, but that shouldn't be the basis of what happens to character or relationship development.

Ecellent! I've loved this guy since Roar.
True Blood Review: Dead Red?
8/8/2011 12:49 PM
"I like the plot of Antonia coming back to take revenge, however, do all vampires have to pay? Couldn't she just take her revenge on that one vampire that raped her and fed from her?"
No. As she said, she's not getting vengeance just for herself, but for every human that so many vampires have tortured, raped, and fed upon. That's what she talked to Tara about when she said she could see that Tara had also been raped, tortured, and fed upon. It wasn't just Antonia that suffered and it wasn't just one vampire who did it. They showed Antonia being raped and burned at the stake, but they also showed her in a cell full of frightened women who'd clearly been treated the same way. And remember, Bill may drink fake blood from a bottle now, but many flashbacks have shown even him raping, torturing, and feeding on woman throughout his lifetime.
Peter Dinklage Previews Tyrion as Hand of the King, Game of Thones Season 2
7/22/2011 9:15 PM
I'd never heard of these books until the HBO series and didn't start watching until it was 3 episodes from the end. (Thank you, HBO OnDemand!) I just started book 4 today. Tyrion was my favorite character in the show and is my favorite character in the books now, too.
The Big Bang Theory at Comic-Con: What Long Distance Relationship?!?
7/22/2011 9:12 PM
I think I would have been more surprised if the show did have a planned arc instead of being written episode by episode.

Jason and the Pussycats sucks. I want my vampires back.
True Blood Round Table: "You Smell Like Dinner"
7/5/2011 7:22 PM
"...she's so young and she simply has needs." Young or not, isn't that the classic excuse men use for cheating? Would you be ok if your boyfriend said that to you? Really? It may seem like "dinner," but the whole lead up to the scene where she finally bit the guy, moaning and in a bathroom stall, no less, were all about sex. In most cases with the vampires in this series, there's always, as Eric says, a sexual component to feeding on the blood of a human the vampire is holding. "Simple has needs" is a crap excuse for cheating for anyone.
Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "My Name is Trouble"
6/29/2011 6:34 PM
"'A' has permanently scarred all the girls when it comes to texting. It's just an instinct at this point. She probably deleted the message without even reading it."
Except they showed her read it, hesitate over the delete/save (or whatever) option, observe her parents getting along well, then clearly press the delete option. They showed it as something she thought about, even if not very long, and did with intent. Besides, these girls aren't like computer users who click to get rid of any error message before even noting what it says. When A texts them, they don't delete, they memorize every word and then anguish over each one or call their friends so they can all debate the meaning together.
Pretty Little Liars Round Table: "It's Alive"
6/16/2011 3:01 PM
The 'heart wants what it wants' is the worst excuse for poor judgment and bad behavior since 'boys will be boys.' The heart may want all kinds of things, but that's no reason to let your brain take a vacation while you do stupid things. It's just an excuse people use to justify their foolish actions to themselves and others.
Castle Season Finale Review: Game Changers Galore!
5/17/2011 1:51 PM
I thought I saw blood, which I think means no vest for Kate.
I loved this episode, but I'm really sad about losing Capt. Montgomery. I truly didn't see that coming. I thought the fight between Ryan and Esposito was great and seemed like a genuinely honest reaction to that kind of discovery.
Being Human: Renewed for Season Two
3/22/2011 5:38 PM
@Broadwayfan, I usually feel that way about the US versions of shows and it took me a while to accept the US cast, but I really do like both shows.
The US version has a LOT of overlap with the BBC version, but they've also got some clear differences that change some of the game. It's like watching the same show in an alternate universe where we get to see what would have happened if the character made a different choice or had a different outcome.
I'm really liking both versions. I still prefer the BBC cast, but I'm getting to know and adapt to the US cast, too.
How I Met Your Mother Review: "Legendaddy"
3/22/2011 10:34 AM
@Jenna, they also call Robin 'Aunt Robin.' It's not uncommon for people with very close friends to have their children call the unrelated friends 'aunt' or 'uncle.' I spent some of the first season thinking Ted was going to marry Robin's sister, even though I didn't know if she had one or not. Narrator Ted has called all the core cast 'aunt' or 'uncle' at some point.
I thought this was a great episode. I've always liked John Lithgow and it was nice to see him NOT being a super creepy serial killer.
Pretty Little Liars Clips: What Does Jenna Want?

@Stephsister, I kept waiting for the camera to cut back to the statues and show that there we suddenly only 2 instead of 3 or have one turn its head to watch the girls leave.
Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior Premiere Review: Red Flags For the Red Cell
2/17/2011 11:33 AM
Some of the characters were introduced in the shows real "test" pilot, the Criminal Minds episode where this team was introduced. As I felt with the CSI: Miami team intro in an episode of CSI, the characters were more interesting in the other show than they were in their own pilot. Some of them seemed to be nothing more than extras in this episode, like the blonde whose name I don't even know.
I like Janeane Garofalo, who wasn't in the other episode with this team, but it was really weird listening to hear because everything she said sounded exactly like Emily Prentiss, Paget Brewster's character on Criminal Minds. I felt like the characters were exactly the same, only played by different actors. Weird.
I agree about the introduction of the Red Cell seeming odd and maybe being a better name for the show. I wonder if they avoided it in the title because of the word association with cell and terrorist cell. Whatever the reason, I'm not sure I'll stick around to learn more about anyone on this new team.
Survivor Review: The Godfather Is Back!
2/17/2011 11:32 AM
I can't believe Rob is back again. His repeated appearances in reality shows are one of the reasons I stopped watching Survivor and haven't ever watched others.
The Secret Life of the American Teenager Review: Not an Awful Episode!
8/10/2010 7:10 PM
This was a good one. Amy and Ricky had a really adult conversation, which was really well done. Ben has always been a bit of a stalker, but he's gotten really annoying since the end of last season and I've been really disappointed in his character development.
Adrian I'm sure kept the baby because there's no way the Disney-owned, 700 Club airing Family Chanel will ever actual play someone having an abortion. They've gone as close to the edge as they even will and I don't see them making the leap over to the other side.
I'm totally over Ashley. She needs to win a scholarship to a private school someplace very far away so I never have to deal with her completely wooden "emotional" outbursts.
