She got a bit choked and winded - that's why her voice was so hoarse. But no stabbing

I loved tonight's review!! You are so right about David... seriously he had a full day to do something.... he just unpacked and packed that bag like ten times. He is pretty hopeless at being an 'epic ninja' - even Victoria seems like a more worthwhile adversary in a fight - Emily runs circles around him in talent and abilities. It was nice to see Jack look so manly and proactive for once, instead of being all snivelling and self-pitying. (on a side note - where does he constantly ship Karl off to?) I know the B- story was a bit crowded for tonight's plot but I actually quite enjoyed it. The young actress is so beautiful - she looks like Jessica Rabbit! I also like seeing Nolan get involved in a few plots and schemes that aren't so Emily-centric. Honestly I think Margaux is kind of retarded. Look around. See how many people have died for this whole Revenge-thing. Daniel is gone, she can't bring him back, and she's about to have a baby! Why wouldn't you cut your losses, and focus on the fact you are having this amazing baby, instead of putting it into danger for some hair-brained scheme that won't even change anything!! Well I guess they need a reason to keep the plot alive. By the way, if they had killed Charlotte instead of Daniel would anyone even notice? I forgot she is still in the show!!

Girls Season 4 Episode 2 Review: Triggering

Even though I understood the premise of the first half of this episode... that weird isolation and loneliness you can feel in a new place, I found it hard to watch just because Hannah was so incredibly self absorbed and tactless that she really brought everything upon her. Who tells a total stranger you are a victim of abuse, or 'feel free to leave the room' if my reading aloud overwhelms you. She was just such a brat, it was the first time I could really understand why sometimes her parents almost ignore her when she does this self pity thing. Marnie reached all new levels of deluded - knitting a scarf for Dez so 'she could always be with him.' My god... Shosh and Jessa were fine in their brief cameo. The saving grace of the episode was definitely Elijah. He is awesome. He lights up the screen everytime. I think that he really provides some much needed humor and also the one person not afraid to give these self deluded girls a dose of reality when they need it. Really missed Adam though.

I love the comparison to Sterling Archer!! Archer is a more classic alpha male but the personality traits are definitely super similar!

Revenge Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Atonement

I would have preferred:
Charlotte
Jack
Margaux - all could have died before Daniel. Killing off the Grayson family so swiftly is going t make this show boring

Revenge Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Atonement

You forget to mention the best part of tonight's episode! A Conrad cameo!! Please bring Conrad back... I know anything is possible on this show. It's literally a night time B&B in terms of reviving the formerly believed dead. Conrad and Victoria's sniping arguments are by far the best part of Revenge... I've felt something missing without them this season! I am sad Daniel died. They really could have taken Charlotte instead. I didn't even realise she was missing this episode.

New Girl Season 4 Episode 8 Review: Teachers

Not even a mention in your review of how cute it was when Jess finally got her pash on with the cute male teacher? I thought that was adorable... The side story was pretty stupid, but that one really saved the day for me!

New Girl Season 4 Episode 10 Review: Girl Fight

I really loved this episode. It is good to see Jess and Nick finally find partners who you think actually suit them, although the money thing was a bit awkward. Also still find it awkward that they just didn't deal with that break up at all... as if it never happened... I remember on Friends, with Ross and Rachel it just kept coming into the conversation... having seen it in my own group of friends, it's realistic. It's like the writers just wanted a do-over on New Girl... I guess it's the way you have to roll to watch the show and enjoy it... like that never actually happened. I think Nadia should be a series regular. She is soooo funny. She makes me laugh so much. I would watch episodes dedicated to her. I think the girl fight was really on the money!!

Totally agree!

Tonight's episode was mostly funny and I enjoyed it. But I think the show has become a bit too crowded. Why don't a few of the characters move next door, "Friend's Style." I mean they've already brought in the next door apartment as an option. It just seems a bit hard to believe that many 30-somethings are all living together sharing a space. Also, on the topic of "Friend's," I think a major difference in the shows is that on Friend's, even rewatching all these years later, you see so much growth in the characters throughout the seasons. They start as in their late 20's pretty lost, and then they sort of really get into their professions and start to be solid in their directions, and their failures seem somehow real and relatable. The failures of the characters in New Girl seem a little bit ridiculous... for example: Schmidt losing all his money because he brought a shopfront for his like 3 week girlfriend. All of them trying to get laid at a wedding and totally failing - who cares... Also I really don't like how they've treated the Nick and Jess break up. There is no way you are in love with someone and then you break up and just go on living together as if everything is back to Season 1 and you never got together. Haha maybe coming from the point of view of a 30 y/o who just came out of a serious relationship with someone in her friend group I can say for certain there is no way everything is all good a few weeks later.. But I think that it's really letting the show down. One of them should have moved out even if it was next door... Even when Jess broke up with the super hot doctor (who they should bring back and I think they were awesome together) you saw her really sad and express pain and emotion. Even Cece and Schmidt couldn't be around each other for ages after their break up. It's just frustrating to watch them go on as if nothing happened.... Anyway that's my 2-bobs!! :)
