New Girl Review: Mountain Man

I think this was the worst episode of New Girl I've seen. I understand the issues they were trying to explore were sort of relevant, but it just seemed ridiculous. Im the same age as them, all my male friends are city slickers, but they still know how to be men - this was just stupid. Also a bear hole so big they can all fall in, dug by Nick in under an hour? Cmon!
Nothing about the episode was funny, it was all so totally cringe-worthy. I find Nick so Over The Top, and totally over-reacts to everything. I mean the Ross-Rachel thing, had Ross as a goof, but he as likeable, and more importantly, believable. They are making the Nick character ridiculous. And as for Schmidt, I really hope his confidence comes back soon, because he was always so funny, and now he is really tedious. Jess trying to always be a supportive girlfriend and stand by Nick and support his ridiculousness is just frustrating. Both her past ex-boyfriends were so awesome, the hot doctor and Russell. There is no real life scenario where a girl would break up with them, and then go and be this little puppy who rolls over for this spineless twit.... Sorry it's frustrating. Coach does't quite work - i think the addition of another girl would have been better. My favourite characters lately are Cece and Winston, I think they are the only ones who seem vaguely normal... But this show used to make me laugh soooo much! I hope it picks up again

Boardwalk Empire Review: Under the Boardwalk

That was a seriously hectic final! I really can't believe they killed Richard. It was like they wanted to totally do away with the whole Jimmy storyline in one episode, especially symbolised by finally discovering his body. I guess the remaining characters from that part of the story have stumbled on for a few seasons past his death. Still, Richard added so much awesome value to the show, and considering how epic he was in the last finale, it's true as you say, they could have honored him with a more glorious send off. Would have far rather lost Chalky then Richard. I think there needs to be a spinoff story about the New York and Chicago gangsters - I honestly find them so much more fascinating then most of the Atlantic city ones with the exception of Nucky. I guess it's hard to stay loyal to Atlantic city characters when they kill off half the cast, and sent the other half to New York, Chicago, and remote hideaways. At this point who is even left in Atlantic city? the Knoxx scene was really gory and I think it dragged on a little two long... we got the point. I don't really think this finale did the season justice, it really felt like it was halfway through the season, not the finale. When you compare it to how totally amazing the last finale was it leaves a lot wanting. I did love the rest of the season though. I just think we needed about 4 more episodes with the Capone-Van Alden, Margaret-Rothstein and Luciano-Masseria stories to accurately cover what needed to be told. Another episode with Nucky actually in Florida would have been good too. Oh well... I agree, not a great episode but good enough, and its still so beautiful, I will definitely be back next season.

Revenge Review: Best Kept Secrets

I love Revenge... it is like 'The Best of' Bold and the Beautiful meets the 'Best of' Gossip Girl. Every outfit Emily wears is perfect and a joy to watch, with Victoria following close behind. Every episode Emily's three lovers circle in the same little dance and its fun to see. This is not the first person they brought back from the dead and I'm certain it won't be the last. Both Bold and GG have used that plot device for years! Think Taylor, Macy - Chuck Bass's father!!!

Boardwalk Empire Review: Game of Thrones

Great Episode - even if it was filled with a lot of uncomfortable moments, shaky hands, awkward pauses and silences and misocummunications! Missed the New York Gangsters and even Gillian a bit though...

Royal Pains Season Finale Review: Time to Unwind

The scene with Jeremiah proposing friendship in the hospitalto Divya was so touching I almost had tears!! It is such a very sweet and pure relationship. I think that Hank going with Boris is great. he needed some time away and he also has a very strong relationship with Boris, it actually did seem to make sense. Beautiful ending to the season!

Sons of Anarchy Round Table: "Straw"

I've only been able to get half way through this episode and it used to be one of my favorite shows... it's just so dark now that there's no moment of respite anymore. No likeable or identifiable character even seems to still exist and god the continual torture of Otto season in and out is just too much to watch... i dont know how this character is still alive.
It doesn't sound like the second half of the episode is getting lighter!

Royal Pains Review: Signals Crossed

I loved this season until the last few episodes, but they have really become ridiculous, and hope it goes back to normal soon. Paige and Evan's sudden jealousy and issues just don't really make sense to me... they have already been through so much with her sick mother, and Hank's accident - it just seems like something to 'pass time.'
The storyline with Molly and her dad was boring from the first episode and i can't believe they dragged it on sooo long, neither of them are likeable characters. I know Hank has had some special friendships with past patients such as the Golfer who died of Lupus disease, and the young boy with the bleeding, but they were reciprocal - this one makes no sense. Poor Jeremiah, he is lovely!

Royal Pains Review: Signals Crossed

Molly's character is really too much. I don't know how Hank can handle it. She has been heaping abuse on him for about 5 episodes now, when all he has done is help her and her family, plus could have almost ruined his career about the drug prescriptions. Teenagers can be angry and frightened and afraid, but I don't think it's normal for anyone to be so hateful and vengeful to the only person there for their family over and over again. I also think it doesn't seem normal for a teenager with a sick parent (the only one left) to continue to act out so much - usually a child goes into nurse or 'parent mode' when this happens, Ive seen it with my own family.
